Itronics reports progress
Itronics Inc. of Reno said last week it’s completed preliminary engineering of a planned expansion of its silver refining operation in Reno.
The company, which recovers silver from photochemical liquids, plans to expand its refining capacity to 2.4 million ounces of silver a year.
Currently, it can refine 24,000 ounces a year.
“The thing that I like most about entrepreneurship is I can work toward something that I’m passionate about and be at the forefront of the change that I want to see happen,” said Priyanka Senthil, a senior at Davidson Academy in Reno and co-founder of startup company AUesome.
