Taiwan plans to build factory from e-waste

Taiwan is building a factory to process and recycle the electronic waste generated by the island's consumers and its numerous technology companies.

The e-waste plant, built by SDTI and Miniwiz, will not just extract materials from discarded computers and smartphones, but it will be built completely out of recycled materials.

Architect and entrepreneur Arthur Huang showed BBC News the designs for the new factory.
