European network on Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion, MIC.
7th of April 2022
Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) is a phenomenon that is increasingly becoming a problem for the society.
Therefore, it is important to combine the efforts of experts in different fields and develop prevention measures according to the European rules, in close cooperation with industry and plant operators and owners of critical infrastructure.
This is done in the COST action: CA20130 – European MIC Network – New path for science, sustainability, and standards.

Corrosion Advice ApS participate in several of the working groups and contributes as vice-leader of WG4 on: ‘Strategize ‘green’ mitigation methods.
Seminar on: ‘When is a surface or component clean enough?’
7th of June 2021
Cleaning issues are often determining for good corrosion resistance. The online seminar “When is a Surface or Component Clean Enough?”, which will be held by ATV-SEMAPP (www.atv-semapp) on 9 & 10 June 2021, will give you an in-depth introduction to cleanliness.

Consequences of Corrosion Damage
6th of June 2021
Corrosion Advice ApS offers services to minimize and reduce corrosion problems. This is for the benefit of various factors, such as: improved safety, reduction of damage costs and production loss and limitation of our use of resources in connection to damage repair, all in favor of ourselves our environment and climate.
According to international Impact Studies (impact.nace.org), the annual cost of corrosion worldwide is estimated to US $ 2.5 trillion. Which equals 3,5% of the Gross Domestic Product, GDP. To that comes the cost of indirect effects, and side effects on for example the loss of production, environmental pollution, personal injury, or health risk.
Most importantly, the study estimates that 15-35% of the cost can be saved by applying existing knowledge and technologies. So, there are plenty of advantages in connection to reaching out for assistance and knowledge sharing within the field of corrosion mitigation!
