GTSO: Soluble Circuit Boards Could Make E-Waste Recycling More Profitable
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- February 26, 2013
As Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) works to ramp up its e-waste
recycling business both at home and abroad, new research in the U.K. could be
poised to make turning trash into cash easier and more profitable than ever
Researchers at Britain’s National Physics Laboratory are currently working to
develop water-soluble circuit boards that hold the promise of significantly
streamlining e-waste recycling. The printable boards are designed to dissolve
in hot water, leaving behind only their recyclable metal components.
Constructed of polymeric layers that have been shown to withstand heat and
other pressures of real-life use, the water-soluble circuit boards can be used
to build rigid, flexible and even 3-D structures, allowing the electronics
industry to pursue designs using less material, making manufacturing more
“Electronics that can be easily separated into their component parts after
immersion in hot water would be a complete game-changer in e-waste recycling
and urban mining,” said GTSO CEO Paul Watson. “E-Waste is the fastest growing
segment of the waste stream, and continuing innovation in e-waste recycling is
fantastic news for our company.”
GTSO is already hard at work preparing to capitalize on the coming boom in
e-waste recycling. In addition to acquiring its domestic recycling operation
last year, Global Urban Mining (GUM), GTSO has also completed initial due
diligence on a medium-scale recycling operation in Chile and will begin early
stages of partnership negotiations this week with its executive management
Urban mining is key to GTSO’s plans to compete alongside major international
corporations striving for sustainable waste solutions, such as Industrial
Services of America (NASDAQ: IDSA) and Sims Metal Management Ltd. (NYSE:SMS).
