What are Professional Development Hours (PDH)?

These are so-called study credit hours that you have to make in addition to your professional work-related hours. This has become a strict requirement in order to maintain your CP, CIP or any other certificate from organisations such as Frosio and AMPP. How many hours are required, differs per organisation and per certificate. As of […]

Principles of Corrosion

Corrosion is defined as the deterioration of metal or concrete by chemical or electrochemical reaction resulting from exposure to weathering, moisture, chemicals or other agents in the environment in which it is placed. The result of corrosion Corrosion is an ever-present fact of life. It’s a relentless natural force of deterioration.  Corrosion results in: Destruction […]

Make the invisible visible

False or True? What is reality? What are the facts speaking for the best possible direction respecting people, planet, profit (cost). Dialogue is our answer and the core principle of our platform.

Corrosion Alliance participates in COST Action EURO-MIC

Corrosion Alliance is partner and part of the management committee of the Euro-MIC project. It is a European co-funded project. The project has 122 members from both industry and academia around the world to enhance the knowledge about Microbial Influenced Corrosion and to develop and advance technologies to measure and mitigate this type of corrosion.The project […]


The technical standard NACE TM0194 is among the oldest technical standards in the industry, with the aim to guide you through the process of biological monitoring of pipelines and upstream production in general. This standard focuses on field test methods that are useful for estimating bacterial populations, including sessile bacterial populations, commonly found in oilfield […]

What research is going on into the field of Microbial Influenced Corrosion?

There are several scientific initiatives promoting research on Microbial Influenced corrosion. Frontiers in Microbiological Chemistry and Geomicrobiology will devote a full issue to the mechanisms of Microbial Influenced Corrosion. An thereby aims to provide a comprehensive overview on the most recent MIC developments. All over the world, the cost of MIC damage can reach up […]

Where can I find knowledge about MIC?

A lot of the applied knowledge about Microbial Influenced Corrosion (MIC) can be found within corrosion and corrosion prevention associations such as AMPP (former NACE and SSPC), EFC and ASTM. These are industry-oriented associations with many technical standards.  Besides these technical standards, there is also a network of volunteers active within these associations who meet […]
