The API PowerChem Asia Pacific Conference 2018 - A Success!

The API PowerChem APAC conference is the pre-eminent power station chemistry conference, exhibition and training course in the southern hemisphere which the API is proud to be able to offer to the energy industry. This conference is the biennial event for power station chemists and their suppliers. The 2018 program began on the evening of Sunday 20 May and concluded on Thursday 24 May at the Novotel Twin Waters, on the Sunshine Coast.

This year’s program and events were well supported by over 35 experts and eminent speakers and 85 delegates from around the world (i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Thailand) and more. The conference was composed of a diverse range of three days of presentations/exhibition followed by one day of technical training.

The primary aim of the conference is to provide up-to-date professional development for those working in the industry as well as those associated with it. The format of the conference allowed close interaction between speakers, presenters, exhibitors and delegates over the five day technical and social program.
