In October the workshop proposed by NACE ITALIA Milano Section

In the frame of “Automa Smart Grids Days 2020”, NACE ITALIA MILANO Section, with the patronage of APCE, AIM and Politecnico di Milano, organizes a workshop dedicated to two increasingly up-to-date issues in the field of corrosion protection in buried transport and distribution lines:

  1. Environments with extremely high resistivity; experiences in the design and management of cathodic protection systems
  2. “Live After Death”; extension of cathodic protection systems operation beyond the design service life.

Should you be interested in presenting your experience on the topics described, please send an email to alberto.delmoro@saipem.com before August 3, 2020 indicating title and authors.

Giornate Nazionali di Corrosione e Protezione dei Materiali: Milan, June 28-30, 2017

gncp2017
gncp2017-2

PoliLaPP ha organizzato in collaborazione con AIM, Associazione Italiana di Metallurgia, la XII edizione del convegno nazionale dedicato alla “Corrosione e Protezione dei Materiali”, svoltosi presso l’aula Rogers del Politecnico di Milano.
Questa edizione delle Giornate Nazionali di Corrosione e Protezione, coordinata da Fabio Bolzoni, Marco Ormellese e MariaPia Pedeferri, per la prima volta nella storia di questo convegno, ha visto il numero dei partecipanti superare quota 200. Numerosi ricercatori provenienti dalle diverse università italiane e operatori appartenenti al mondo industriale hanno presentato più di 100 memorie orali, suddivise nelle 12 sessioni tecnico-scientifiche. La sessione “corrosione delle opere in calcestruzzo armato” è stata dedicata al ricordo del nostro collega prof. Luca Bertolini, prematuramente scomparso.
Il Dipartimento di Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica “G. Natta” ha avuto un ruolo centrale, con ben 20 interventi. Durante il convegno è stata consegnata al prof. Luciano Lazzari la medaglia di titanio, istituita dall’AIM nel 2002, e in questa occasione intitolata alla memoria del prof. Pietro Pedeferri.
Sono stati inoltre organizzati tre workshop dedicati alla protezione catodica delle reti idriche interrate (a cura di APCE), alla corrosione negli impianti petrolchimici (a cura di NACE Italia Milano Section) e all’utilizzo degli acciai inossidabili nel settore chimico (a cura del Centro Inox).
Una selezione di memorie presentate al convegno sono state pubblicate sulla rivista “La Metallurgia Italiana”, che ha dedicato il numero di luglio alla tematica della corrosione.
