WHO WE ARE
The Swiss Committee for the Properties of Water and Steam (SCPWS) is a scientific association founded in 2007. SCPWS aims to advance the knowledge in the properties of water, steam and aqueous systems, particularly those of interest to thermal power plants and other industrial applications. SCPWS is the leading representative body for power plant chemistry in Switzerland.
The SCPWS is an independent and non-profit making organization. Our goal is to unite all relevant stakeholders such as universities, research institutes and industrial companies under one roof and allowing knowledge to be shared amongst engineers, scientists, academics and industry.
Our activities include the organizing of meetings, symposia and conferences in order to share and exchange knowledge and expand the personal networks of our members. We also maintain relations with national and international associations and organizations of the power and water industry.
We are affiliated to the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) and share objectives to advance knowledge in common areas of interest.
The SCPWS represents the National Committee for Switzerland which acts as one of the smaller national entities within the body and framework of IAPWS.
The IAPWS is a non-profit association of national organizations concerned with the properties of water and steam, particularly thermo-physical properties, cycle chemistry and other aspects that are relevant to thermal power cycles and other industrial applications.
The objectives of IAPWS include:
To share information and experiences between researchers and engineers, IAPWS holds annual meetings in combination with international conferences at 4 to 5 year intervals.
Further information on IAPWS as well as Technical Guidance Documents that have been issued on power plant chemistry can be found at www.iapws.org
