Corrosion affects every aspect of life, from small-scale electronics to large-scale infrastructure. It already costs Europe €630.5 billion each year.
Transitioning to a low carbon economy, society becoming more environmentally conscious and potential future regulatory changes will require industry to adopt sustainable solutions for managing and preventing corrosion.
Sustainable non-metallic materials could offer a transformative solution, but right now, we know this technology is too high risk for businesses to adopt at scale.
Through-life performance of non-metallic materials for preventing corrosion
In 2019 we held workshops with experts in academia and industry to explore opportunities for collaboration in the following areas:
- How could we characterise and test material properties
- How could we detect failures before they occur?
- How could we predict where material degradation will take place?
We will produce a report on our initial findings in early 2020.
