GTSO and Partners Prepare for Bolivian Expansion

  GTSO and Partners Prepare for Bolivian Expansion  Business Wire  SAN JOSE, Calif. -- August 8, 2013  In a major push to collect and resell rare earths-rich e-waste in the booming Latin American market, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) and its partner, Chilerecicla, are preparing to expand recycling operations into Bolivia.  One of South America’s top recyclers of e-waste, Chilerecicla operates the first e-waste recycling plant in Southern Chile and maintains crucial relationships with overseas smelters, with the right to sell them as many recovered metals and minerals as GTSO and Chilerecicla can provide. With a feasibility study on the region now complete, the joint venture has targeted Bolivia as an ideal territory for growth.  “Our partner has already signed an agreement with one of Bolivia’s largest e-waste operators and the initial purchases of raw e-waste materials are expected to begin this week,” said GTSO CEO Paul Watson. “This is a big step forward in our ambitious plans to apply this successful business model in growing markets, with the U.S. being our No. 1 target.”  The United States is the world’s largest producer of e-waste, and GTSO expects to apply expertise gained in Chilerecicla’s Bolivian expansion to make a big splash in the largely underexploited U.S. e-waste recycling sector. The Responsible Electronics Recycling Act (RERA) introduced into Congress late last month could prove to be a gold mine for recyclers like GTSO, with new technologies making recycling more efficient—and potentially, more profitable—than ever before.  E-waste recycling is key to GTSO’s plans to compete alongside major international corporations striving for sustainable waste solutions, such asIndustrial 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 asGreen Urban Miningto handleits domestic recycling and resale operations.
