GTSO: Recycled Mining Tech May Solve E-Waste Crisis

  GTSO: Recycled Mining Tech May Solve E-Waste Crisis  Business Wire  SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 12, 2013  In its quest to market and develop potentially lucrative new urban mining technologies, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) is working to repurpose mineral processing methods to potentially reclaim billions of dollars’ worth of metals from discarded smartphones, tablets and other electronics.  Mining industry techniques such as froth flotation may hold the key to recovering metals such as copper, which is found in circuit boards; and gold, silver and platinum, found in electronic components and connectors; from unwanted mobile phones, televisions, computers and other devices. Froth flotation is the main process used in the Australian mining industry to recover metals from ores.  “The key is to constantly innovate,” said GTSO CEO Paul Watson. “Techniques such as froth flotation have been used for years in mining and now researchers are finding new ways to separate minerals from e-waste—such as mobile devices—with a much higher degree of energy efficiency than older techniques. The potential cost savings are considerable, which is why we’re highly interested in the possibility of helping bring these new techniques to market.”  GTSO views e-waste and waste to energy as vital elements to supplying future needs, turning waste bins into the mines and reservoirs of the future. The company is investing time and money in managing waste supplies and infrastructure today so that we’ll be able to capture a major share of the marketplace tomorrow.  Urban mining is key to GTSO’s plans to compete alongside major international corporations striving for sustainable waste solutions, such asIndustrial Services of America(NASDAQ: IDSA) andSims Metal Management Ltd.(NYSE:SMS).
