VANCOUVER, British Columbia – November 17, 2022 – Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF, OTCQB: ROOOF) (“Northstar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the first collection of previously landfill bound asphalt shingles at the Company’s asphalt shingle reprocessing facility in Delta, British Columbia (“Empower Pilot Facility”).
While the Company has been producing saleable quantities of liquid asphalt for some time now from its on-site shingle inventory and having received its Brokering License from Metro Vancouver (as previously announced by the Company on August 3, 2022), the Company has now fully commissioned its digital weigh scale and is able to collect shingles. The processing of the first truck of asphalt shingles means the shingle collection process is operational. The Company expects to work with local partners to ramp up collection activities at the Empower Pilot Facility.
Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO and Director of Northstar, stated “This is an exciting milestone for Northstar and our stakeholders, as it marks the start of diverting discarded asphalt shingles from the Vancouver landfill to our Empower Pilot Facility, allowing them to enter the circular economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from liquid asphalt production. We will work with our industry partners to increase shingle collection at the Empower Pilot Facility. This is an important step for our business model, as it will mark our ability to collect tipping fees, an important revenue stream for the business.”

Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. is a Canadian-based clean technology company focused on the sustainable recovery and reprocessing of asphalt shingles. Northstar has developed a proprietary design process for taking discarded asphalt shingles, otherwise destined for already over-crowded landfills, and extracting the liquid asphalt for usage in new hot mix asphalt, shingle manufacturing and asphalt flat roof systems, and aggregate and fiber for usage in construction products and other industrial applications. Focused on the circular economy, Northstar plans to reprocess used or defective asphalt shingle waste back into its three primary components for reuse/resale at both its Empower Pilot Facility in Delta, British Columbia and its first commercial scale up facility in Calgary, Alberta. As an emerging innovator in sustainable processing, Northstar's mission is to be the leader in the recovery and reprocessing of asphalt shingles in North America, extracting the recovered components from asphalt shingles that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
