MAJOR SEMINAR TO BE HELD ON CORROSION MANAGEMENT

Corrosion is the naturally occurring deterioration of a material or its properties due to a reaction with the environment.

It can cause dangerous and expensive damage to many types of structures including pipelines, bridges, buildings, water and wastewater systems.

One of the most recent estimates indicates that corrosion costs the Australian economy between 3 and 5 per cent of GDP each year.

Australia is the driest inhabited continent on Earth and among the world’s highest consumers of water which presents the need to protect and maintain our water assets from corrosion.

The Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) holds a number of seminars and training courses throughout the year to inform and guide organisations and practitioners about ways to combat corrosion.

The next ACA event, Corrosion Management in the Water and Wastewater Industry, will be held at the Marriott Hotel, Melbourne on March 26.

A limited number of places are still available for the seminar.

Bookings can be made at: www.corrosion.com.au.

The ACA is a not-for-profit, membership Association which provides training, seminars, conferences, publications and other activities to disseminate information about corrosion and its prevention or control.
