Corrosion in Marine Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (Scrubbers)

Corrosion Technical Series

This one-day seminar focuses on guidance and current discussion of materials selection and corrosion of marine exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS or scrubbers). The marine industry is facing the challenge of adopting new technologies and/or operational practices to comply with stricter international, regional, national and local regulations introduced to reduce air emissions from ships. The adverse effects of exhaust gas emissions from internal combustion engines and boiler exhaust gases on human beings and sensitive ecosystems have been well documented by the scientific community.

Critical amongst these regulations are the measures to reduce sulfur oxide (SO x ) emissions inherent to the relatively high sulfur content of marine fuels. Ship designers, owners and operators have a number of different routes to achieve SO x regulatory compliance:

Corrosion Impacts in Renewable Energy

Corrosion Technical Series

This one-day seminar focuses on a variety of renewables markets such as wind and solar energy and will identify corrosion management methodologies in these respective areas. Corrosion is a continuing and major issue in all fields of energy and particularly renewable energy. Newly engineered systems are designed for up to 30 years of service but exposure to environmental corrosion, UV, extreme temperatures and salt corrosion can challenge component durability. Excessive component failures can lead to high maintenance cost and overall under performance of energy output.

Future Robotic Technologies in Confined Spaces

Corrosion Technical Series

This one-day seminar will focus on current, and future shifts in asset owner requirements, and emerging methodologies, technologies and materials for asset integrity maintenance. In response to Health Safety Security and Environment (HSSE) risks and corresponding liability issues and costs, many asset owners are employing mitigation initiatives to reduce, or in some cases, completely eliminate human confined space entry (CSE) altogether.

This forward-looking series of discussions will offer a first-hand look at one large asset-owner's aggressive new plan to fully eliminate direct human interaction in permanent CSE. Additionally, existing processes and technology of maintenance service providers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and coatings manufacturers will be discussed to showcase the quantum shift in industry.

Corrosion Management in Water and Wastewater

Corrosion Technical Series

This one-day seminar focuses on corrosion detection and mitigation in the water/wastewater industry. The speakers will share problem-solving strategies, case studies and analytical data from the following perspectives: research and development, treatment systems, maintenance troubleshooting, inspection protocols and water technology methods.

According to the American Waterworks Association (AWWA) industry database, there is approximately 1,483,000 km of municipal water piping in the United States. This number is not exact, since most water utilities do not have complete records of their piping system. The sewer system consists of approximately 16,400 publicly  owned treatment facilities releasing some 155-million-meter cube of wastewater per day (1995). The total  annual direct cost of corrosion for the nation's drinking water and sewer systems was estimated at  $36.0 billion. This estimated statistic accounted for the costs of replacing aging infrastructure,  corrosion inhibitors, internal mortar linings, and external coatings and cathodic  protection.

Corrosion Management in FPSOs

Corrosion Technical Series

This one-day seminar focuses on corrosion management of floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units and the extension of the life of offshore structures – fixed or floating static equipment, beyond that indicated by the original design philosophy. This event will provide insight into how to manage such concerns as process safety, material degradation, corrosion/erosion monitoring, non-destructive and intrusive inspection and maintenance.

NACE Consortia Additive Manufacturing Roundtable Event

This one-day round-table will focus on addressing solutions to corrosion control and mitigation in Additive Manufacturing.  The Additive Manufacturing industry is projected to reach 1+ billion by 2025 with companies seeking to focus on accelerating and integrating additive manufacturing technologies to their businesses to build products and unique parts within larger structures. AM allows for greater design ability and for assemblies to be printed in one process. This operation efficiency reduces production time, minimizing time to market and reduces risk. The industry’s only corrosion-related consortia administered by the premier global corrosion engineering association is seeking corrosion science and engineering experts to collaborate in a neutral forum for researching innovative solutions to key challenges in the field of Additive Manufacturing.
