The Polemist by Gary Reinhold, RE Consulting

During the week of July 22nd the PCUG and Reinhold Environmental held their 25th APC & Wastewater/PCUG Conference at Lexington, KY hosted by East Kentucky Power Coop.

Admittedly, it is getting more difficult to assemble a group of coal-fired users and suppliers in one place. The total attendance at Lexington for this conference was the smallest in the last ten years. But offsetting that decrease was the user attendance which was the third highest in the last 10 years. Every domestic power generation company sitting on the PCUG Steering Committee, except two, was represented. In addition, there was a good group on non-steering committee users in attendance. The good news is that for the suppliers who were able to participate, the percentage of users to suppliers was over 50%.

The Round Table during the first two days was filled with 37 technical sessions focusing on many aspects of particulate, SO2 and wastewater topics. During most of the timeslots over one-half of the attendees participated in these technical exchanges of information and problem solving discussions.

In the expo, 40 exhibitors continued the technical discussions with the users. As usual, traffic was slow during the technical sessions, but thanks to the copious amounts of food, the expo was very crowded during the breaks, lunches and reception. Overall feedback was very positive from all who attended.

On Wednesday on Thursday almost 100 users shared many of their problems and solutions in a closed Pollution Control Users Group Meeting.

The ongoing mission of the PCUG and Reinhold Environmental is to provide high quality technical conferences to maximize opportunities for sharing problems and solutions that confront the coal-fired power generation industry. In the current environment where gas and renewables dominate capital investments, this may be the only remaining venue with a technical focus on coal. The Lexington conference hosted by EKPC was right on the mark for air pollution and wastewater.

Next June, at the direction of the PCUG Steering Committee, the winter and summer conferences will be combined into one conference handling all aspects of air, wastewater and CCR for coal-fired generation.

We are looking forward to the last NOx-Combustion-CCR/PCUG Conference hosted in February 2019 in Salt Lake City by Greg Betenson of Pacificorp and the first combined Reinhold/PCUG Conference hosted in June 2019 by Ann Palmer of Southern Company

To paraphrase a Toby Keith song , "Coal ain‘t as good as it once was, it‘s got a few years on it now, ...but coal is as good once as it ever was."

The PCUG and Reinhold Environmental thank you for your support...25 years and counting!!!
