DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / December 21, 2023 / Basatne International, a leader in sustainability and a frontrunner in reverse logistics for consumer electronics headquartered in Dallas Texas, proudly opened the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility in Dubai Silicon Oasis, located in the United Arab Emirates.

This technology will advance a new circular economy by assessing if a device's lifespan can be extended with refurbishment or if it should be responsibly recycled. It will also enhance Basatne International's grading precision for the resale market while drastically increasing device throughput.

By extending the lifespan of mobile phones, we are ultimately reducing e-waste in landfills, reducing a large amount of CO2 emissions while also making a positive impact on the economy," said Ammar Aboulnasr Basatne, Basatne International's Founder and Chief Executive Officer.

"Globally the number of mobile devices is expected to reach 19 billion by 2025, of which half will likely be disposed of in landfills.
