Key Issues in Plant Chemistry and Corrosion in BWRs – 2016


The 20th Nuclear Plant Chemistry (NPC) International Conference, which started in Bournemouth (UK) and held every other year, was held in Brighton (UK) in October 2016. It is the most im­portant conference related to chemistry in Nuclear Power Plants, and covers many new results in this area. The key information presented at this Conference is covered in two separate LCC12 Reports.

This Report summarizes the BWR related papers from the conference and is designed to provide updated information with the author’s critique and analysis for the benefit of the ANT International/LCC customers. The Report is expected to be a compre­hensive document summarising the latest information on BWR water chemistry that would benefit the BWR operators and regulators.

The second report covers PWRs, VVERs, CANDUs, PHWRs and auxiliary systems issues.
