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 before.
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
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 sustainable.
"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 acquiringits 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 team.
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).
