About the Workshop

Now in its 37th year, this comprehensive program features state-of-the-art information on controlling corrosion, improving operation efficiency, and meeting environmental challenges in fossil- and nuclear-fueled power plants. This year’s program is geared toward improved training and continuing education of personnel responsible for electric utility cycle and environmental chemistry.

More than 3,000 chemists, consultants, and power plant administrators have attended the workshop since its inception in 1981. The 2017 program has been developed by a committee of representatives from midwestern electric utilities, the Illinois State Water Survey, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and consultants serving the power industry.

Some of the most popular features of the workshop are the Utility Experience presentations. Seasoned professionals from utility companies discuss their experiences on a range of topics. The entire workshop has been structured to encourage participation from attendees.

The Electric Utility Chemistry Workshop will feature an optional pre-workshop seminar on the basics of an important aspect of power plant water treatment. This half-day training seminar on Tuesday morning, June 6 will provide information on Cooling Water and Cooling Treatment.
