Northstar Clean Technologies has received the first truckload of liquid asphalt shingles diverted from the landfill at its Empower Pilot Facility in Delta, British Columbia.
The company has been producing liquid asphalt from its on-site inventory of shingles for some time and received its brokering license from Metro Vancouver in August of this year. However, Northstar has now fully commissioned its digital weigh scale and is able to collect asphalt shingles that would otherwise be sent to landfills.
“This is an exciting milestone for Northstar and our stakeholders,” said Northstar President and CEO Aidan Mills, “as it marks the start of diverting discarded asphalt shingles from the Vancouver landfill to our Empower Pilot Facility, allowing them to enter the circular economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from liquid asphalt production.”
The processing of the first truck of asphalt shingles means the shingle collection process is operational, Northstar stated in today’s news release. The company will now work with local partners to ramp up its shingle collection activities at the Empower Pilot Facility.
“This is an important step for our business model, as it will mark our ability to collect tipping fees, an important revenue stream for the business,” added Mr. Mills.
Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. is a Vancouver-based clean technology company focused on the sustainable recovery and reprocessing of asphalt shingles.
