Weekly Poll (5)


Last month, engineers from RMIT University announced the development of an eco-friendly, zero-cement concrete that can withstand corrosive acidic environments, commonly observed in wastewater infrastructure. How long until you think the material is commercially available?


Recently, researchers from Kazan Federal University published a paper detailing how sunflower oil could be useful in corrosion prevention. In the study, the multifunctional oil-inhibitor proved successful in protecting surfaces against gas hydrates and pipeline corrosion. Could you see the biodegradable oil being used in future corrosion protection practices?


In August, researchers based out of the National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, India, announced the development of a new way to protect ships from corrosion using a compound from mango leaves. Though further testing still needs to be conducted, do you think the technology will be used in future industrial coating products?


In April, a stress corrosion crack was to blame for a gas pipeline explosion that occurred just north of Mexico, Missouri. Reports indicate that the pipeline was previously tested in 2015, involving a magnetic field test. However, when a hydrotest was taken of the pipe following the incident, the test failed four times prior to its success. Do you believe pipeline inspections should be using hydro-technology over magnetic methods?


ASTM International announced a new test method for detecting corrosion-inducing bacteria. Do you think that industry professionals will be persuaded to new techniques, or continue to practice conventional test methods?
