More than 1,000 participants from academia and industry joined the annual EUROCORR conference in Sevilla. Around 900 presentations were held in 30 sessions covering all aspects of corrosion. Takanori Yoshino from KWI presented his study on silicate scale inhibition in cooling water and Wolfgang Hater from Kurita Europe GmbH the Corrsave 100: Kurita’s new corrosion inhibitor for cooling systems. Furthermore, there were presentations on corrosion and scale inhibition in geothermal from Kurita’s research partners.
