The Swiss sports brand has embarked on a sustainability initiative that uses carbon emissions to initiate a durable material for running shoes. Many companies around the globe are designing ingenious ideas to combat climate change. Other companies like LG Innotek are lessening their carbon footprint by depositing zero waste into landfills. Companies are operating to guarantee their products, services, and processes are geared toward reducing emissions and helping create a “circular economy,” where products have more than one vitality and are used for other purposes.
Similarly, Northstar Clean Technologies, Inc., Waste Connections INC is devising new technologies that put the environment and the circular economy first while preserving a strong focus on generating shareholder value. These groundbreaking companies are pivoting waste into revenue.
Northstar Clean Technologies Inc is a company, concentrated on the recovery and reuse of single-use asphalt shingles to produce liquid asphalt, fiber, and sand while redirecting waste shingles from landfills.
Northstar Clean Technologies, on February 17th, declared that it has instigated steady-state production at Empower Facility, its fully-built shingle reprocessing plant in Delta, British Columbia, to process discarded single-use asphalt shingles into liquid asphalt, fiber, and aggregate. These derivatives can thus re-join the economy instead of being sent to the trash yard. The company currently produces “green asphalt” to the design specifications of the Empower facility.
Northstar Clean Technologies President and CEO Aidan Mills proclaimed, “We are thrilled to have finally entered this critical stage of our Company’s development. Critically, this technology is the foundation for our ongoing independent engineering design study for our future scale-up facilities.”
“Our objective is to maximize the applicability of what we believe is the “greenest” asphalt in North America. In delivering this, we will be in the unique position where our reprocessing of asphalt shingles could not only divert approximately 40,000 tonnes of shingles per annum per facility currently sent to landfill but these products can be applied in numerous markets. We believe we now have a sustainable, proven solution that can help solve North America’s asphalt waste problem,” he added.
Northstar is hosting site visits for industry stakeholders, investors, media, and government agencies at the Empower facility in February and March 2022 to showcase its operating process and technology and are generating revenue while keeping the world clean.
