Cerebra Integrated Technologies, based in Bangalore, India, has announced that its proposed electronics recycling facility in Bangalore has received official approval from the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board. The electronic scrap recycling facility will include processing of obsolete electronics, as well as the recovery of precious metals such as silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium.

When fully operational the facility will sit on 12 acres and be able to process 96,000 metric tons of electronic scrap per year.

The company hopes to complete the construction of the recycling plant by the end of 2013. Cerebra adds that once it is commissioned the plant will be one of the largest of its type in the sub-continent.

In a statement, the company says that when the facility opens it will likely be the only truly integrated electronics recovery facility that offers the complete recovery of scrap, data wiping, destruction services, repair, refurbishing and remarketing.

In a related note, Cerebra has signed a purchase agreement with Enviro-Hub Holdings, located in Singapore, for the 100 percent acquisition of Enviro’s wholly owned subsidiary Cimelia Resource Recovery pte Ltd.
