The Sustainable Corrosion Control Research in Progress symposium, held today (Thursday, April 22), brings together a diverse group of researchers discussing the long-term projections (20+ years) of climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation, and resource depletions that are triggering shifts across the energy, manufacturing, and agricultural industries.
This symposium, led by Chair Chistopher Taylor and Vice Chair Alp Manavbasi, features 11 speakers. Presentation topics include corrosion management of “green building,” corrosion under insulation, protective metal coatings, smart inflow control devices, pipeline integrity management, electrochemical energy storage, and more. A full list of presentations included in this symposium can be found on the Technical Program page under “Sustainable Corrosion Control.”
Attendees can ask presenters questions and chat with fellow attendees during the presentation, or connect with presenters afterward for additional discussion. The symposium starts at 8 a.m. CST and concludes at 2:30 p.m. CST, and presentations will remain available until May 1, 2021.
Students will be back on Monday from 1-3 p.m. CST to answer additional questions about their posters.Read more
