Hiroshi Abe completed his Ph.D. in engineering at Tohoku University in 2008. His main research subject from student is “stress corrosion cracking of austenitic alloys in high temperature water (including superheated steam and supercritical water)”. From 2009, he started his carrier as an assistant professor of Degradation Science and Plant Life Management laboratory in Department of Quantum Science and Energy Engineering in Tohoku University, and started the study of FAC from oxide layer properties points of view.

Mr. Baczoni calls on 12 years of power industry technical service experience to help Nalco provide the power producer with the products and service programs that they need to improve plant availability and efficiency, while achieving strong environmental performance and sustainable operations. His responsibilities include training in water treatment applications for Nalco customers and field service staff, as well as on-site technical consulting for Nalco clients. His technical expertise and plant application experience is applied to support both new applications and program improvements. He works closely with clients and research to be sure that Nalco develops effective solutions to water system challenges. Moreover he is troubleshooting corrosion problems since 2000.
Mr. Baczoni has in-depth experience in chemistry management and control for power plant water and steam systems: high pressure steam cycles, condenser and auxiliary cooling, clarification, softening, high purity water preparation, plant water balance and zero discharge, FGD waste treatment, etc. He has provided support for coal, nuclear, and combined cycle generating plants in Europe Middle East and Africa.
Mr. Baczoni helps to bring innovative solutions to operating problems. Recent work includes advanced cooling water programs with performance-based control, advanced programs for seawater cooling tower systems, and application of advanced monitoring and control to reduce boiler and steam cycle corrosion.
Mr. Baczoni has written and presented technical papers on cooling water and steam cycle chemistry for PowerGen conferences in Europe, Middle East and Africa, the VGB conferences and on many local conferences in Europe. He is publishing technical articles in international journals as well. He is a member of the PowerGen Europe Conference & Exhibition Advisory Board Committee since 2012.

Alexandre Bellefleur has a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry and graduated as an electrochemistry engineer from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Électrochimie et d’Électrométallurgie (INPG-ENSEEG now PHELMA). He firstly worked at EDF SEPTEN on the validation of the FAC calculation code BRT CICERO™ version 3.0. He spent a year working for EPRI on the MULTEQ database and on several chemistry calculation tools. He has been working for EDF R&D since 2012, firstly being in charge of the Chemistry and Corrosion laboratory of the Materials and Mechanics of Components Department (MMC). He is now working on various research fields, including FAC monitoring, waste disposal corrosion and electrochemical techniques applied to corrosion studies.
