While searching for photos for the continuation of our Bulkoholics Show we thought it might be a good idea to concentrate on the forthcoming worldwide famous bauma 2016 exhibition in Munich, Germany when the message below arrived this morning:
Dear Reinhard and Ute,
Congratulations on the 15 years of the Powder and Bulk Portal. This milestone, following on from your previous major contributions through your Company, Trans Tech Publications, you have undoubtedly provided an outstanding service to industry, consultants and researchers in the development of bulk solids handling.
It is very kind of you to mention me along with Frits when explaining Frits’s role in coining the very apt name “bulkaholics”. Apart from being an outstanding researcher, Frits was certainly a great character full of humour and quaint expressions. Betty and I have very fond memories of our long association with Frits and Frouwke, as well as the many long standing worldwide friendships with colleagues working with bulk solids.
I have not been very diligent in keeping track of the numerous photographs that we have taken, but I managed to find a few which I have attached. But I will keep looking for others.
The very best wishes from Betty and me.

together with the photographs below.
Alan, thank you very much. These are real fine, and real old photos. Please send me photo caption improvements because I am not sure about some of them. Also, please let us know the time and place these photos were taken.
Alan, thank you very much. Perhaps other old friends will come forward with more photos, for old times sake!
And now we will continue with some photos of the 2010 and 2013 bauma exhibitions, admittedly with not too many “real Bulkoholics”.
