Northstar Receives Second Government Grant of $100,000 from Alberta Innovates for Engineering Costs of Empower Calgary Facility

VANCOUVER, BC and CALGARY, AB, April 24, 2024 - Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF) (OTCQB: ROOOF) ("Northstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, upon completion of detailed engineering design for its planned asphalt shingle reprocessing facility in Calgary (the "Calgary Empower Facility"), the Company has received the second installment of $100,000 in grant funding (the "Second Tranche") from Alberta Innovates, a provincial Crown corporation and Alberta's largest research and innovation corporation.

The Company received approval in March 2022 for a non-repayable $200,000 grant for the direct engineering costs of the Calgary Empower Facility under Alberta Innovates' Bioenergy Program. The agreed milestones for the project under the joint Milestone Reporting and Payment Schedule ("MRP") were an award of $100,000 (the "First Tranche") upon completion of the Company's Front-End Engineering Design ("FEED") and a further $100,000 award on completion of detailed engineering design, which the Company has now completed and was announced on April 8, 2024. The First Tranche of $100,000 for the Company's FEED was awarded in March 2022 and the Second Tranche of $100,000 has now been awarded based on the successful completion of detailed engineering design for the Calgary Empower Facility.

Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO and Director of Northstar, stated, "Alberta Innovates was the first public organization to support Northstar – recognizing the potential of and providing funding for the engineering of our first-of-its-kind facility. Having now completed the detailed design phase of our Empower Calgary Facility, and having Alberta Innovates recognize this accomplishment with their second government grant is very complimentary to the Company. The support of Alberta Innovates has been very welcome, and we look forward to delivering our first commercial facility that merits their support."
