Corrosion and corrosion protection in green energy technologies



It is well known that corrosion degradation of metals has high global impact, not only in financial terms, but also in terms of the number of lives lost due to catastrophic failures and environmental pollution that ensues after failure of some containment systems. Appropriate corrosion mitigation methods must be implemented to ensure safety of operation and sufficient component life in different environments. The EU is currently working towards the goal of an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This means that more and more efforts are being directed towards development of green energy sources such as offshore wind power and advanced nuclear and hydrogen power. In addition, Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) is seen as a key technology to reduce carbon footprint. All these technologies require some form of corrosion mitigation methods in place and therefore this Special Issue: “Corrosion and Corrosion Protection in Green Energy Technologies” brings together a selection of innovative corrosion mitigation methods with a focus on corrosion protection in the green energy sectors and CCUS facilities.
