Description of Services:Fortech Microabrasivos, S.A. de C.V., and related company Fortech Quimica, S.A. de C.V. are privately owned Costa Rican companies (Owner/Manager Guillermo Pereira) which operate three facilities in Cartago, Costa Rica.

This facility, “Lima de Cartago”, or Facility #2, located in an 8,000 square foot leased building, has solvent recovery, e-waste disassembly for recycling, and fluorescent tube crushing. Processes in this facility include fluorescent tube crushing, done in a manually fed crushing unit which discharges crushed tubes into 55-gallon drums. No material separation is done (glass, end cap material, and “phosphor powder” containing mercury are shipped offsite for further separation and mercury removal).

The other two facilities are the Cartago Industrial Park facility (corporate office), located on a company-owned parcel in the Zeta Free Zone, which performs chemical blending, contract plating, and electrowinning operations (the company began as a specialty chemical supplier, and later added plating and electrowinning), while the third facility, known as the “Tejar del Guarco” facility or Facility #3, has e-waste disassembly and plastic grinding (ground plastic is used locally by an injection molder).
