Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion

Corrosion Technical Series

Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is corrosion affected by the presence or activity of microorganisms in biofilms on the surface of the corroding material – a problem that threatens assets in many industries, including oil and gas, water and wastewater, and maritime industries. This seminar features thought leaders from the U.S. Navy and the private sector, who will share their insights into how their organizations address this corrosion challenge. Discover the latest technological advances in detecting and combating MIC, as well as how to avoid common misconceptions.
