India-Corrosion Conference - CORCON 2015 organisers said that Indian economy suffers a loss of around Rs.375,000 crore annually due to corrosion, Our viewpoint: We need a proper survey not only for estimating the realistic corrosion cost, but also exploring the resources available within our country

Our Viewpoint: There are many historic metallic wonders  available to showcase the engineering knowledge glory and material development skills of ancient India. We need a proper survey not only for estimating the realistic corrosion cost, but also exploring the resources available within our country. It is a general perception that we have to depend on foreign technologies for controlling corrosion in India at the present time.  Our country needs rigorous research works and effective collaboration between the scientific and industrial community. The present focus on producing the fundamental corrosion research works requires to be diverted to deal with real world corrosion problems. We observe these corrosion problems everywhere starting from the domestic through to industrial establishments. There are many instances of corrosion induced water pipeline leakages leading to loss of huge volume of water and also posing health threats to Public. There is no effort on solving corrosion problems faced by the Public. Establishing the public friendly collaboration platform for sharing the problems and also experience to resolve such issues is essential for the success of corrosion control programs. A significant number of non-resident Indian engineers are employed by the overseas companies to resolve corrosion and material challenges in their industry side. But the situation in our country is not an encouraging one. Our government needs to tap the talent pool and encourage the growth of Indian Diaspora Knowledge Network in this domain for conserving our material resources and saving the national economy. We CAN Control Corrosion in India.

CHENNAI: Indian economy suffers a loss of around Rs.375,000 crore annually due to corrosion, an official said.

The three day CORCON 2015 -- a conference on corrosion -- will engage on the technologies and measures to mitigate the loss, said a top official of the organising committee.

"Around Rs.375,000 crore loss is suffered by the country due to corrosion. The three day conference that starts here on Thursday will deliberate on the recent advances in corrosion control and how it is tackled by various industries like chemicals, refinaries, marine, power, fertiliser, oil and others," U Kamachi Mudali, chairman, CORCON 2015 told IANS here on Wednesday.
