Greentech Lead India: A2Z Dataserv, an electronic waste
recycling firm, is planning to expand plant capacity to 1 lakh tons in two
years from initial capacity of 10,000 tons.
“We are starting with 10,000 tonnes capacity per annum
plant with initial investment of Rs 20 crore. After two years of business we
