Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF) (OTCQB: ROOOF) recently held its site opening event at the location for the development of its first commercial facility for reprocessing asphalt roofing shingles in Rocky View County in Greater Calgary, Alberta.
The event was attended by government representatives, members of industry, and included the CEO from Emissions Reduction Alberta, the local Member of the Legislative Assembly, and representatives from the Business Development Bank of Canada, and TMX Group.
Mr. Justin Reimer , CEO of Emissions Reduction Alberta, stated, “A more sustainable, diversified provincial economy requires using our resources more wisely. We need to think about waste as a resource rather than a cost. Northstar’s technology solution will help to provide the construction industry with clean, sustainable processing solutions. It will also support municipalities in their transition to the circular economy by helping to eliminate the need for landfilling waste shingles.”
Mr. Aidan Mills , President & CEO and Director of Northstar, stated, “Our vision is to be the leading provider of reprocessing asphalt shingles in North America and the first commercial shingle reprocessing facility in Greater Calgary . This is our first step towards achieving that vision.”
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 alandfills, and extracting the liquid asphalt for use in new hot mix asphalt, shingle manufacturing and asphalt flat roof systems, and aggregate and fiber for use 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 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.
