Itronics Publishes Updated Corporate Profile

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2014) - Itronics Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ITRO), a growing and diversified fertilizer, silver, and minerals producer, today announced that its updated Corporate Profile is posted on the Itronics website at . The Company urges investors and potential investors to read about the Company's successes and future plans.

Itronics was formed to create technology to convert spent silver-bearing photographic liquids into silver bullion and commercial liquid fertilizer products. This produced the GOLD'n GRO line of chelated liquid fertilizers, silver bullion, and glass tile, completely converting the hazardous liquid waste stream into commercial products.

Itronics' research continues to create new material recovery technologies, several of which are now in early stages of pilot-scale development and which have huge potential for investors. One of the most significant is a new category of hydrometallurgy technology (FeLix, SuLix, ZnLix, SuFeLix, KAM-Thio) which is used to recover metal and non-metallic materials from residual solids and concentrates. One application is the use of the ZnLix process to recover zinc from zinc flue dusts for use as a raw material in manufacturing chelated micronutrient zinc fertilizers and potential production of pure zinc metal. Another application, with large scale potential in mining, is a liquid fertilizer (KAM-Thio) that in laboratory testing has shown the ability to provide relatively complete recovery of silver from silver-bearing glass.

One of the most significant new applications is the ZnLix technology to recover zinc from zinc bearing flue dusts produced by zinc casting operations, brass and bronze manufacturing, and by steel mini-mills. Independent estimates are that this waste stream approaches one million tons per year in the U.S. and that a significant amount of this material is sent to solid waste dumps for hazardous waste disposal. 

"The Company's goal is to completely convert the zinc flue dust into commercial products analogous to its technical achievement in converting spent silver-bearing photoliquids into commercial products," said Dr. John Whitney, Itronics President. "Completely converting a waste stream into commercial products maximizes raw material sustainability, while improving the environment by eliminating waste. Many other potential applications for the Company's technologies are presented in the updated Corporate profile."
