Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - February 20, 2013) - “Rare earths are the economic and technologic foundation of a safe and secure Nation. To possess them imparts independence, immunity to coercion, and the tools to invoke scientific advancement.” – James B. Hedrick, President, Hedrick Consultants Inc. & Editor, REEHandbook.com
ProEdgeWire (ProEdgeWire.com), investor intelligence for the resource sector, is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Technology Metals Summit -- Renewable Energy: the next industrial revolution (TechnologyMetals.com) on April 21-22, 2013 (Sunday-Monday) at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Tracy Weslosky, Publisher of ProEdgeWire comments: “Committed to a better understanding of rare earths and critical minerals, the Technology Metals Summit is designed to bring together industry leaders, accredited investors and senior government officials to discuss and debate the complex challenges facing this sector.”
“I think the next industrial revolution is going to be on renewables.” said Ron MacDonald, Executive Chairman and Director for American Vanadium Corp., Critical Elements Corporation and Canada Strategic Metals Inc. This interview comment combined with ProEdgeWire’s ongoing coverage of the US' renewable energy policy and self-sustainability for critical minerals including tantalum, lithium, graphite and vanadium was the catalyst for the selection of this year’s theme – Renewable Energy: the next industrial revolution.
The Technology Metals Summit will feature debates on compelling industry topics that range from the state of the art in rare earth separation and purification chemistry to environmental and renewable energy policies. Integrated throughout the 2-day event, the Technology Metals Summit will feature twenty presentations from companies focused on rare earths, graphite and critical minerals such as beryllium, vanadium and tantalum.
“The Technology Metals Summit brings today’s most relevant producers and consumers of rare earth materials together under one roof. In today’s turbulent market, you’ll find no better forum for gaining vital market intelligence.” – Ed Richardson, President, United States Magnetic Materials Association (USMMA)
