Biological Treatment of Microbial Corrosion: Opportunities and Challenges explores the latest biological approaches to microbial corrosion and its inhibition. The book provides comprehensive information on the current knowledge of microbes involved in corrosion and their mechanisms of action on corrosion induction and inhibition. This information is helpful for a wide range of audiences, from university researchers, to industry specialists. The book discusses foundational information about corrosion and microbiologically influenced corrosion and its importance. Other chapters provide an in-depth review of corrosion causing microorganisms, their properties and their mechanism of involvement in MIC.
Updated findings on the biological treatment of corrosion are addressed, as are future opportunities and challenges that could lead to prosperous, sustainable and secure industrial application of these techniques.
- Provides a detailed overview of the fundamental concepts of corrosion
- Discusses MIC, including its characteristics, properties and modelling
- Previews the opportunities and challenges faced by the utilization of biological treatments for corrosion
