India - Corrosion Control Conference - CorrosionTech World Expo, 30-31 January 2015, Bombay Exhibition Centre, NSE Complex, Mumbai - organised by CHEMTECH Foundation in association with NACE India Section

The assets form the largest part of the CAPEX for the plant owners who expect the equipment to perform through their entire lifecycle without any unprecedented downtimes to avoid any impact on top or bottom lines. Through the lifecycle of the plant, the process equipment and the installations are subjected directly to highly corrosive processes and harsh environmental conditions. The conditions result in unprecedented downtimes thus leading to loss of productivity and decreasing the profit margins. The biggest challenge is the threat to the lives of the people and environment at large.

CHEMTECH, in association with NIGIS – NACE India will organise the CorrosionTech World Expo – the Surface Treatment & Coatings Show - one and a half day conference concurrently during CHEMTECH World Expo 2015 scheduled from January 28-31, 2015 at Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre, Goregaon (East), Mumbai, India.

Planned programme for one and a half day conference on “Industrial Significance of Corrosion” :


2 Plenary Sessions
Track 1: Industrial Corrosion
Track 2: Protective Coatings
Track 3: Failures & Case Studies
Panel Discussion: User Industry Interactive Forum

The event will provide the opportunity to multiple industries to have dynamic interactions with the experts from the field of corrosion to understand pro-active measures that need to be taken to mitigate the impact of corrosion towards increasing safety and lifecycle of all the stakeholders.

Corrosion control services providers can showcase their technologies, products and services at the special NACE pavilion during CHEMTECH World Expo 2015.

India - Introduction of Corrosion Prevention technologies from the US to Indian market - Commerce Minister will push for early deliverables from US during the commercial dialogue

New Delhi: India will press for early deliverables such as capacity building in corrosion-prevention technology and technical textiles during the commercial dialogue scheduled for Tuesday between commerce minister Nirmala Sitharaman and her US counterpart, commerce secretary Penny Pritzker, even as contentious issues like the Totalisation Agreement and immigration struggle to make headway. Pritzker is part of the team led by US President Barack Obama for his ongoing India visit. While the corrosion-prevention technology is crucial to protect infrastructure projects and industrial products, technical textiles is a sunrise sector used in various industries including construction, agriculture and healthcare. Such advanced technologies available in the US are crucial to the Narendra Modi government’s Make in India and smart city projects. “For a long time, commercial dialogue was dormant between both sides. Now, we see a lot of interest from both sides. So, there will be some movement in the near future,” a commerce ministry official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. However, the official said the two sides were unlikely to sign any agreement on this front during Obama’s visit.
