Mitsubishi Materials Corporation is building an electronic waste recycling centre in the port and industrial area of Moerdijk, North Brabant, reports the Financiele Dagblad.

The Japanese non-ferrous metals and cement manufacturer will inspect circuit boards and other waste electronic parts, transporting recyclable waste to Japan to be processed.

About 50 new jobs will be created, according to the Brabant Development Agency. Construction has started and the centre should be operational in 2017.
