Mr. Aidan Mills, CEO of Northstar, commented, “This quarter has set the stage for Northstar’s future. Following our successful listing on the TSX Venture Exchange in July, we set out to lay the foundation to steady state production, while also taking the time to independently verify the quality of our output and further enhancements that can be made to our proprietary process. These foundational milestones were the building blocks for our major achievements since the end of the quarter, which include successful commissioning runs at the Empower Facility in Delta, BC, selection of BBA as our consulting engineers and the independent life-cycle assessment to assess our carbon footprint at the Empower Facility. The life-cycle assessment quantifies what we have always believed: that the Northstar process recovering primary components from single-use asphalt shingles is a ‘circular’ process that significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions associated with virgin asphalt production and landfill disposal, marking an industry first.”
