2nd Corrosion Management Summit

Corrosion is expensive! The impact of corrosion on the nation’s exchequer is a staggering figure of Rs 1.5 lakh crores. These expenses can be brought down to half if the good practices are followed to prevent and control the corrosion. This offers a big opportunity to save cost and also enhance the life of products, plant & machinery, and civil structures. To provide a forum for experts from industry, academia and research laboratories to work together and to disseminate best practices on corrosion management; the CII-1st Corrosion Summit was organised in Mumbai in November 2008.
