Chinese Academy Forms Ocean Corrosion Alliance

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Comment | More

The Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Oceanology (IOCAS) has founded a marine anti-corrosion alliance that unites the efforts of 13 research groups and 13 industry companies.

The alliance, established Nov. 23 in Qingdao, includes domestic ocean anti-corrosion enterprises and research institutes or universities headed by IOCAS.

The coalition aims to establish close relations between the industry and research sectors in the next five years, striving to generate more than 2 billion yuan (about $300 million USD) in industrial output and prevent 20 billion yuan (about $3 billion USD) in losses caused by marine corrosion. The group estimates China’s economic losses from marine corrosion in 2009 at 1 trillion yuan (about $150 billion USD).

Focus on Coatings, Engineering

The initiative is designed to address the main corrosion and protection problems in bridge, port and other coastal major projects, as well as develop new sources of marine energy.

The main research areas include identifying the causes of corrosion damage, traditional and novel materials and surface coatings in a marine corrosion environment, the mechanism of the corrosion process, and corrosion control and monitoring technologies.

The goal is “to achieve a breakthrough in marine anti-corrosion coatings, engineering and equipment,” organizers said in a press release.

Core Research

Alliance members have agreed to stick to independent innovation, research and development of core anti-corrosion techniques, technical cooperation and exchanges, and engineering applications.

The group will focus on “the international forefront of high technology” and plans to build innovative systems integrating production, teaching and research.

The alliance aims to enhance China’s overall strength in the development of cutting-edge marine anti-corrosion technology and promote the sustainable development of marine resources.
