VANCOUVER, British Columbia – November 23, 2022 – Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF, OTCQB: ROOOF) (“Northstar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has filed its third quarter 2022 unaudited financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis on SEDAR for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2022. These documents are also available on the Company’s website at www.northstarcleantech.com. The Company has scheduled a virtual investor webcast to discuss these financial results and to provide a business update to the investment community later today, Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at 2:00 pm PST / 5:00 pm EST. Details are provided below.
Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO and Director of Northstar, commented, “The third quarter of 2022 was one of our busiest quarters to date. We accomplished many milestones operationally, highlighted by the execution of a 5-year binding term sheet for 100% off-take of our asphalt from the Empower Calgary Facility with McAsphalt, a wholly owned subsidiary of the major international Paris-based conglomerate Colas, and the execution of a letter of intent for an off-take agreement with a major industrial customer for our US expansion. We believe these achievements, in combination with the 80-tonne purchase order from a major international asphalt roofing system manufacturer, demonstrate market demand for our product. Furthermore, we executed a binding term sheet for a strategic debt and equity financing transaction with Renewable U, in which commercial discussions between the Company and Renewable U continue to progress. In addition, we were awarded a patent by the US Patent & Trademark Office for the front-end process of our innovative technology which significantly strengthens our intellectual property portfolio. We look forward to expanding our patent portfolio in 2023.”
