GTSO: Advances in Separation Technology Key to 2013 Profits

  GTSO: Advances in Separation Technology Key to 2013 Profits

Business Wire

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- December 12, 2012

GTSO Resources, the mining subsidiary of Green Technology Solutions, Inc.
(OTCBB: GTSO), believes it has identified the key to a profitable new year:
breakthroughs in sorting and separation technologies that will lead to higher,
more efficient yields of valuable metals from recyclables.

“Currently, the process of reclaiming materials like gold, palladium, copper
and tungsten is very labor-intensive, and the only places where companies are
turning a profit on e-waste recycling are third-world countries where cheap
labor—often children—is readily available,” said GTSO CEO Paul Watson. “The
future of e-waste recycling lies in new technologies capable of breaking down
electronics and sorting valuable components quickly and efficiently, and it is
these assaying and metallurgical processes that we plan to develop and
commercialize in 2013.”

The problem with e-waste that GTSO is working to solve is just that: waste.
Current recycling processes waste too many dollars and resources to be
profitable. New technology promises to change that, which is why GTSO is
pursuing new technologies and innovative processes geared towards efficient
and affordable separation of these valuable resources from discarded

The plan could soon prove to be highly lucrative. According to the EPA, every
one million cell phones recycled, 75 pounds of gold, 772 pounds of silver, 33
pounds of palladium and more than 35,000 pounds of copper can be recovered.

Urban mining is a major pillar of GTSO’s plans to compete alongside major
international corporations striving for sustainable manufacturing solutions,
such as Sprint Nextel Corp. (NYSE: S) and Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE: TM).
The company is also exploring traditional mining opportunities in the U.S. and
Africa through its joint venture with Diamond V Associates.
