Posted July 9, 2015

(CHARLOTTE, N.C. – July 9, 2015) – Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (B&W) (NYSE:BW) is proud to announce the release of the 42nd edition of Steam/its generation and use – the longest, continually published engineering text of its kind in the world.

First published in 1875, Steam has evolved to become a highly technical and comprehensive reference for advanced steam generation and emissions control technologies, steam fundamentals, metallurgy, advanced materials science and related subjects, and is relied upon by educators, students, engineers and other utility and industry professionals around the world.

The 42nd edition has been completely updated to reflect the cutting-edge technologies that could pave the way to cleaner energy production in the 21st Century – advanced ultra-supercritical boilers; innovative alloys and materials; state-of-the-art emissions control technologies for greenhouse gases and hazardous air pollutants; waste-to-energy, biomass, solar steam generation and other forms of renewable energy; and more.

“The publication of the 42nd edition of Steam/its generation and use is another major milestone in the history of B&W as an innovator and worldwide leader in steam generation and environmental technologies,” said E. James Ferland, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B&W. “We are deeply proud to carry on the tradition of knowledge and excellence that has made B&W known the world over since its founding in 1867.

B&W Marketing Editor and Steam Editor-in-Chief Greg Tomei noted, “This new edition is the culmination of countless hours and dedication from the B&W employees who willingly share their knowledge and expertise with so many in the industries that we serve. Working alongside these professionals proved immensely satisfying.”

Steam features 53 chapters spanning more than 1,200 pages, complete with technical descriptions and applications of the major processes involved in the steam generation cycles and emissions control, as well as numerous useful tables and charts for engineers, a summary of codes and standards, and a comprehensive index.

Steam is now available for purchase in its traditional hardback book format or as an electronic version on B&W’s web site. A CD with the complete text in electronic format is included with each hard-bound book purchased.
