  • Case study - Corrosion protection in a pulp and paper industry

    It is widely accepted that corrosion has an important economic impact at an industrial scale. As an example, results of a study carried out in the US showed that the total annual estimated direct cost of corrosion in the country was $276 billion, which was approximately 3.1% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Thus, within the last few decades, an important effort has been made to ...

  • Impact of biofilms in simulated drinking water and urban heat supply systems

    Biofouling and biocorrosion were studied in drinking water and heating water systems by forming biofilms on steel and on polymethylmetacrylate. In the drinking water system, biofilm development was more significant on corroded surfaces, suggesting that in these conditions they were largely protected from disinfection, probably because of sheltering and chlorine demand by corrosion products. In ...
