World Corrosion Organization Debates Low-Carbon Energies

Over the past decades, low-carbon energies have emerged as a strategic priority to decrease carbon dioxide (CO2) releases in the atmosphere to limit global warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a United Nations (UN) body for assessing the science related to climate change, includes as low-carbon energies renewable energies, nuclear energy, and carbon capture and storage.  

In a forum on Monday, April 26, the World Corrosion Organization (WCO), a non-governmental organization recognized by the UN, is addressing the development of various forms of energy. The debate will be led by Damien Féron, WCO president; Willi Meier, WCO director general; and George Hays, WCO director, UN relations.  

From 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST, the forum will cover corrosion issues and potential remedies in this developing field of low-carbon energies. Subject matter experts from around the world will discuss corrosion in various power industries, such as nuclear energy, carbon capture and storage, wind and seawater turbines, geothermal, and solar energies. Attendees will have the chance to learn and exchange information on these issues.
