Relevant topics for conference presentations include, but are not limited to:
- Plant Overview & Scrubber Project Reports

- Erosion & Corrosion
- Retrofits & Upgrades
- New & Emerging Technologies
- Scrubber Performance Optimization
- Operational & Maintenance Practices
- FGD Safety
- Case Studies & Lessons Learned
- Cost-savings Initiatives
As a general guideline for development of technical papers please consider the following.
- The conference mission is to facilitate an exchange of knowledge, new ideas, successes and failures on operation and maintenance of dry scrubbers, and associated equipment and systems in the power generation industry.
- Presentations should promote unbiased participation between owners, operators, and suppliers.
Detailed technical information is helpful but it should not dominate the presentation. Common applications, examples, and representative photos or diagrams have proven to be good catalyst for participation and discussion.
- Presentations for Topic or O&M Specific Breakout Sessions should be designed, in content and length, to stimulate dialog between participants. The majority of breakout session time is intended for open discussion.
- Participants continue to express primary interest in the topics listed above; however technical papers need not be limited to these alone. All submitted topics will be equally considered.
- While OEM and vendor involvement is an important aspect of the conference, plenary and breakout sessions should not be used as promotional opportunities. A specific and separate time slot will be provided for “Trade Show” type exhibits and networking opportunities.
