VANCOUVER, British Columbia – November 22, 2022 – Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF, OTCQB: ROOOF) (“Northstar” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “LOI”) with a major industrial customer (the “Customer”), where the Customer has the exclusive right to purchase recycled asphalt from one or more of Northstar’s future facilities in the United States (“U.S. Facilities”). In addition, Northstar and the Customer (together, the “Parties”) will negotiate the purchase and sale of aggregate and fiberglass materials produced at Northstar’s U.S. Facilities. The LOI outlines the intent of the Parties to enter into a definitive agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”), with a target completion in mid 2023 for an initial term of up to five years.
The Parties also agreed that the price of the asphalt will be market based, including a location and quality differential. Further, the Customer agreed that, so long as Northstar’s asphalt meets its specifications, it will purchase 100% of the asphalt from Northstar’s first location in the United States, up to the produced volume.
Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO, and Director of Northstar, stated, “This is a great step for Northstar towards the formalization of a major off-take agreement with a major North American industrial customer for our first U.S. Facilities. We believe that we have the lowest carbon footprint of any commercially available asphalt in North America at a specification that can be blended for use in the (i) paving (ii) flat roof manufacturing, and (iii) shingle manufacturing sectors, and this LOI continues our entry into these sectors. Part of our objectives for next year will now include developing the terms of the LOI into a definitive agreement, therefore securing the binding commercial off-take terms for our first U.S. Facility.”
Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. is a Canadian 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, aggregate and fiber for usage in new hot mix asphalt, 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 its Empower Pilot Facility in Delta, British Columbia. 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.
