VANCOUVER, BC and CALGARY, AB, Jan. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF) (OTCQB: ROOOF) ("Northstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the first delivery of manufacturing waste shingles to its planned asphalt shingle reprocessing facility in Calgary, Alberta (the "Empower Calgary Facility"), as part of the five-year supply agreement with IKO Industries Ltd. ("IKO"), Canada's leading asphalt shingle manufacturer. The IKO agreement was previously announced by the Company on January 8, 2024.

The Company will be paid a tipping fee by IKO on a per tonne basis for the waste shingles, thus representing the Company's first revenue from the Empower Calgary Facility.

Mr. Aidan Mills , President & CEO and Director of Northstar, stated, "This feedstock delivery, the first of the year and the first of the five-year agreement with IKO, is significant because it represents the first revenue for our Empower Calgary Facility.
