  GTSO Works to Bring Latin American Best Practices to U.S. Urban Mining

Business Wire

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- April 12, 2013

As talks with Chilerecicla to expand its urban mining business throughout
Latin America continue, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) is
making plans to bring best practices learned from its potential new partner to
the U.S.

Founded in 2009, Chilerecicla opened the first e-waste recycling plant in
Southern Chile and specializes in direct removal of e-waste from clients’
offices for reuse and recycling. It’s a successful business model that GTSO
expects to help expand to Chile’s neighbors as soon as a definitive agreement
can be signed.

Latin American nations such as Chile lead the U.S. in recovering unwanted
computers, electronics and other gadgets from the waste stream, but the U.S.
remains a rich market for urban mining that GTSO is determined to tap.
According to the EPA, only about 25 percent of electronic waste is collected
in the U.S., with about 38 percent of that waste stemming from computers.

As its relationship with Chilerecicla progresses, GTSO hopes to apply that
company’s expertise in isolating e-waste before it reaches the landfill to its
recycling efforts in North America, where a growing silicon gold mine remains
largely unexploited.

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).
Late last year, GTSO acquired the companyGlobal Cell Buyers and soon after
rebranded the company as Green Urban Miningto handleits domestic recycling
and resale operations.
