The PowerPlant Chemistry® journal has become the PPCHEM® journal.

In July 1999 – more than 25 years ago – the first issue of the PowerPlant Chemistry® journal was published. Since then the journal has become established as an international scientific and technical journal for users in the entire power generation market. Water treatment and cycle chemistry are not only challenges in power generation but also in all industrial processes where water or steam is being used. The PPCHEM® journal wants to serve all users who are involved in efforts to increase the reliability, availability, economic viability, and the operational and environmental safety of these processes.
