VANCOUVER, BC - Northstar Clean Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ROOF) (OTCQB: ROOOF) ("Northstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed its first quarter 2023 unaudited financial statements and management's discussion and analysis on SEDAR for the three months ended March 31, 2023. These documents are also available on the Company's website at The Company would like to remind its stakeholders that it has scheduled a virtual investor webcast to discuss these results and to provide an update to the investment community tomorrow Wednesday, May 31, 2023, at 14:00 PDT / 17:00 EDT. Details are provided below. Financial references are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified.

Mr. Aidan Mills, President & CEO and Director of Northstar, commented, "We've continued the momentum from the last year with strong progress in Q1 2023. I'm incredibly proud of the Northstar team for helping provide the Company the opportunity to secure up to $7.1 million in non-repayable project-level government grants from Emissions Reduction Alberta ("ERA"). This award has provided strong validation that our work to divert asphalt shingles from landfills back into the circular economy has not gone unnoticed and that governments value the work we're doing and are willing to invest."

"Progress on the Empower Calgary Facility also advanced on several fronts, including signing a long-term lease for the future site of the facility, a short distance from the City of Calgary's East Landfill and our landlord receiving conditional development permits. Work by the landlord has already begun on site and is moving along well."

"Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, we successfully completed liquid asphalt R&D testing with major manufacturers, and we are now in the midst of product manufacturing and quality testing with this same group of major manufacturers."

"Our focus continues to be on progressing the Empower Calgary Facility while conserving capital. On April 19, 2023, we closed an upsized non-brokered private placement of $2.73 million which provides significant runway for us to continue to focus on securing a non-dilutive funding structure to supplement the ERA government grant," concluded Mr. Mills.
