Protecting with nature (PwN) PwN concept (bio-) corrosion prevention

H. van der Mijle Meijer, E.M. Foekema, F. Leon

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Harbour infrastructures, civil engineering structures and offshore structures are exposed to a very aggressive maritime environment. The local corrosion mechanism bio-corrosion or microbial influenced corrosion (MIC) seems to be the life determining failure mechanism for these structures. There is a need for durable solutions to protect and maintain these structures. Different corrosion protection methods and systems are commercially available but each application requires a specific protection system. The optimal solution is not available yet
