Corrosion Technical Series

Jam-packed with the latest insights and technical developments, this new seminar series from NACE brings together subject matter experts from a wide variety of industries and professional backgrounds to discuss hot-button corrosion topics. Through best practices, case studies, and lessons learned, these “technical think tanks” will shed light on the shared corrosion challenges faced by different industries. More importantly, they will reveal commonalities and differences in how various industries, departments, and job titles view and tackle these corrosion issues.

Upcoming topics

Marine Exhaust

Corrosion in Marine Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (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.

Corrosion in Renewables

Corrosion Impacts in Renewable Energy

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.

Future Robotics

Future Robotic Technologies in Confined Spaces

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.

Water and Wastewater

Corrosion Management in Water and Wastewater

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 for FPSOs

The approach identifies the material degradation and corrosion threats, barrier status and process safety issues that need to be addressed in operating an asset beyond its design life. This framework mitigates the risk of integrity blind spots that exists with other Asset Life Extension (ALE) methodologies, which place little emphasis on age-related and non-age-related failure mechanisms.

Past Seminars

Corrosion Failures

Corrosion Failures features thought leaders from government, oil & gas, and pipeline industries. Unique to this seminar, subject matter experts will present a holistic view of how their organizations address corrosion failures from a high-level standpoint, before drilling down to how their processes are managed and executed at the operational level.

Course Description

Diesel Corrosion: Risks and Options for Tanks and Equipment

The NACE Corrosion Technical Series on Diesel Corrosion is specially organized for the trade groups and government agencies whose constituents have diesel fueled vehicles, equipment, generators, heating oil tanks, and fuel storage tanks.

Course Description 

Robotics in the Corrosion Industry

This one-day seminar, entitled Robotic Capabilities for Surface Preparation, Integrity and Corrosion Management, features thought leaders from the energy, technological, manufacturing, and engineering sectors, scientists, maritime, and more who will share insights on robotic capabilities for surface preparation, integrity and corrosion management.

Course Description

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.

Course Description

Fungi and MIC Management

This one-day seminar features thought leaders from the energy sector, coatings, chemical applications, scientists, and more who will share insights into fungi corrosion management, the use of protective coatings in MIC mitigation and prevention methods, and Molecular Microbiological Methods (MMM): actionable data for MIC diagnosis and mitigation.
