The WPI Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling goal is to be the premiere industry-university alliance dedicated to the sustainable stewardship of Earth’s resources.  The Center is a National Science Foundation (NSF) multi-university collaborative with WPI, the Colorado School of Mines, KU Leuven in Belgium, and the University of Tokyo, Japan.  These universities are four of the world’s leading universities in materials engineering, ensuring that CR3 is making a difference globally.  CR3 is a membership driven organization and includes automotive, aerospace, and electronics manufacturers from all over the world, as well as environmental and energy leaders.

Attendance at the meeting will enable Itronics President Dr. Whitney to meet CR3 leadership and introduce the Company’s innovative “zero waste” technology research, development and commercialization successes, and open up new opportunities to partner with CR3 and its members in development of “Zero Waste” technologies.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Itronics to meet top executives and researchers who have a common interest in developing different types of commercial resource recovery and waste re-use technologies that maximize natural resource sustainability.  Itronics has pioneered the development of value-added hazardous waste recycling that converts demetallized liquid photochemical waste into silver bullion and a liquid ingredient used to manufacture high quality GOLD’n GRO liquid fertilizers,” said Dr. Whitney.  “Itronics is now pioneering and has achieved operational proof of concept for its second “Zero Waste” technology, the breakthrough e-scrap (computer circuit boards) refining technology which is now being operated at a pilot scale.  The new operation produces silver bullion and silver-bearing glass which are being sold, thereby completely eliminating the e-scrap from the environment.”
As knowledge of Itronics breakthrough e-scrap refining technology spreads, Itronics has been receiving inquiries about its expansion plans, including possible joint ventures or strategic investments into Itronics.  The Company is responding to these inquiries and is open to having discussions with interested parties.
