  1. Our congratulations to the award winners. It is great to see their involvement in creating awareness for corrosion in India. Our country needs rigorous research works and effective collaboration between scientific and industrial community. Corrosion is not restricted to certain sectors. We observe these problems everywhere starting from the domestic through to industrial establishments. There are many instances of corrosion induced pipeline leakages leading to loss of huge volume of water and also posing health threats to Public.

    Corrosion control and related research efforts shouldn’t be linked with the investment capabilities of asset owners. There is no effort on solving corrosion problems faced by the Public. Establishing the public friendly collaboration platform for sharing the problems as well as experience on solving such issues is very essential for success of corrosion control and material conservation programs.
