Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
Our journal is not only an international platform to publish articles for a global audience, it
also serves to connect people in the power industry so they can share their experience in
water/steam chemistry. From time to time we also get the chance to help recruit power plant
chemists for leading positions in generation companies. I kindly recommend to all of you that
you study the job advertisement on page 103 of this issue. I'm convinced that amongst our
readership there are chemists suitable for this highly responsible position.
But not only do we connect power plant chemists and generation companies – we also
organize events all around the globe to actively push the exchange between the experts in the
This autumn we will be holding two such events. In Bangkok as well as in Dubai we are organizing
a two-day forum where invited keynote speakers will present case studies from power
plants all around the world. Unlike in the seminars in the past, in this forum the attendees will
have much more time to discuss similar cases/problems from their plants with the plenum and
the invited experts. To complete the list of speakers, we are still looking for additional presentations
and speakers for the two events. Please see the call for papers for Bangkok (page 90) and
for Dubai (page 91) in this issue. For more information and abstract submittal, please contact
Another conference I would like to mention here is the Fourth Meeting of the EHF (European
HRSG Forum). The conference will be taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on May
16–18, 2017. PowerPlant Chemistry is the media partner of this event, so mark it in your
calendar – the details can be found on page 86.
I would also like to draw your attention to this year's conferences and meetings. Our events
calendar aims to be as informative as possible. We try to list all important events in all power
plant chemistry areas from all over the world. As we can't have our eyes and ears everywhere, it
is possible that we might overlook one event or another; if you think that there is an important
event missing, please let us know!
I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
