Miami, FL–( NewsWire – June 17, 2020) –, a leading independent small cap media portal with an extensive history of providing unparalleled content for the Emerging Growth markets and companies, reports on Itronics Inc. (OTC: ITRO).

For over 20 years Itronics has received international recognition for developing its portfolio of zero-waste clean materials technologies, its core competency. Central to this expertise is recovering nutrient materials (fertilizer ingredients) non-nutrient metals & materials (precious metals, base-metals and industrial minerals) from industrial waste streams. Using these waste streams, Itronics currently produces, 1) GOLD’n GRO, a line of specialty multinutrient liquid fertilizers, 2) silver bullion (containing gold, palladium, copper and tin) and 3) it operates a pilot-scale initiative to furnace-refine discarded printed circuit boards, a global, still largely unaddressed problem. The company has also recently developed Rock Kleen, a breakthrough mining sector technology that recovers a diverse group of metals and minerals (gold, silver, copper, iron, manganese, zinc and industrial minerals) by processing silver/gold mine tailings and copper mine tailings. This is performed using a proprietary, zero-waste, and 100 percent beneficial use process (also a largely unaddressed industry-wide problem). Under the leadership of its President, Dr. John Whitney, Itronics operates the only vertically integrated, fully permitted facility in the United States of its kind. Itronics is an emerging cleantech materials growth company that is primed for environmentally conscious investors and cleantech materials investment funds.
