SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--After a comprehensive search process, Green Technology Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GTSO) announced today that the Company is now conducting due diligence toward a possible agreement with a Latin American e-waste recycler fitting each of its expansion criteria.
“It’s very well positioned in the market and has good access to public funds focused on innovation. Having an international partner with experience in an emerging market such as Chile could really open up exciting new opportunities for us across the region.”
Based in Chile, the recycler specializes in the direct removal of electronic waste from clients’ facilities. From handheld mobile devices to aerospace instrumentation, the company is capable of safe disposal of hazardous e-waste for reuse.
The company was one of several in the region shortlisted by GTSO for potential partnership. With initial agreements now signed and the requested corporate information received, GTSO plans to forge ahead with talks regarding a definitive agreement.
“This company is growing very quickly,” said GTSO CEO Paul Watson. “It’s very well positioned in the market and has good access to public funds focused on innovation. Having an international partner with experience in an emerging market such as Chile could really open up exciting new opportunities for us across the region.”
Chile has been a major focus of GTSO’s efforts to expand its urban mining footprint due to its high rate of industrialization, sustainable mining operations, affordable labor and local business connections with the company’s consultants at CCI Capital SpA.
Urban mining is a major pillar of the Company’s plans to compete alongside major international corporations striving for sustainable manufacturing solutions, such as Sprint Nextel Corp. (NYSE: S) and Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE: TM). Late last year, GTSO acquired the company Green Urban Mining to handle the company’s recycling and resale operations.
