InvestorIntel to host the 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit in Toronto on May 15-16th, 2017

December 13, 2016 — On behalf of the team of InvestorIntel, a leading online source of independent investor information, we are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit (@CTMS2017) scheduled for Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Canada.

InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky commented: “It is with great pleasure that we announce our 2-day annual investor event on Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th — the 6th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Market Summit with this year’s theme – Invest in Sustainability. Traditionally we attract global leaders in the technology metals sector, but this last year we had wider representation from the cleantech sector with battery storage, water desalination and even graphene technology companies presenting. Additionally, I would like to welcome Neil Lock to the InvestorIntel team as he takes on the leadership role as the Summit Director for this year’s event. With expert panellists that examine various ground breaking cleantech technologies, the impact of geopolitical and financial issues on sustainability, and the ongoing race for critical materials in the global technology market: we believe CTMS2017 will be our most remarkable year to date!”

“Metals, alloys, and advanced materials play a vital role in reducing life-cycle environmental impacts and enhancing the sustainability of many products, particularly when they are used to lightweight transportation and other systems,” said Mark A. Smith, CEO and Executive Chairman of NioCorp Developments Ltd. “Pick your molecule of concern – carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds – reducing mass in transportation and infrastructure systems via lightweighting can deliver large emissions reductions, and relatively quickly. I see the current lightweighting revolution accelerating on a global scale, helping to drive demand for many metals and high-performance alloys that reduce mass, increase fuel efficiency, and reduce a broad range of manmade emissions into the atmosphere.”

Managing Director of Alkane Resources Ltd. Ian Chalmers adds: “Rare earths and rare metals are used to tailor the properties of advanced materials and reduce their size or weight, for use in clean and sustainable technologies. Certain rare earths are in particularly high demand for use in lightweight high-strength magnets for high-efficiency electric motors, while others are key components of photovoltaics, electronics and speciality alloys.  This makes them vital components of many technologies we take for granted – including smart devices, auto fuel systems, wind turbines and industrial gas turbines.”
