The Canadian Centre for Raw Materials Display Incorporated (CaCeRMDI), has announced the commencement of registration for its first international conference and exhibition for raw materials, tagged ICERMs 2023, which is open for participants from all countries of the world, including Nigeria.

The theme of the conference is “New Development and Solutions to the Global Shortage of Raw Materials,” the conference is scheduled to be held between November 8 and 9, 2023, at the Conference Room, Prince Albert Public Library, in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

The purpose of the two-day conference is to bring together active stakeholders in raw materials research from around the world to share their experiences, innovative ideas, and technologies in solving the current global shortage of raw materials, which has significantly skyrocketed the prices of certain commodities.

The President of CaCeRMDI, Osagie “Leo” Ekhaguere, said in an interview that the conference will focus on topics, such as, but not limited to, potash exploration and mining, fertilizer production from potash, clean electricity generation from uranium, and how African countries could benefit from Canadian uranium.

Saskatchewan is the world’s largest producer of potash, and this Canadian province is ranked second in global uranium production and is well positioned to help solve global shortage of these raw materials required for food production (potash fertilizer) and clean electricity generation (from uranium).


He said the reason why all members of the public are being invited is to be able to ensure that everyone is able to identify raw materials that are modified in making products everyone use daily.

He further explained that it would come to a point where non-technical participants would see that some of the items in their backyards are actually raw materials that could feed some of our existing industries or create new ones.

In summary, Ekhaguere said inviting everybody both technical and non-technical people is an essential effort directed towards stimulating interest in the use local raw materials.

He said as registration has commenced and the deadline is fast approaching (September 15, 2023), authors are currently being solicited to contribute to the conference, by submitting articles that illustrate research results.

Papers, he added, will be subjected to double-blind peer review to enhance quality, and the conference proceedings will be published in the first Journal of the Canadian Centre for Raw Materials Display Inc. (CaCeRMDI).

According to Ekhaguere, the registration fee is CAD 650 (Regular/Basic Package), adding that the VIP rate is CAD 850, whereas the VVIP full price is CAD 1150, which covers this edition and the second edition, which is scheduled to be held between April 25 and 26, 2024.
