Corrosion in a Circular Economy

The NACE Mission is to equip society to protect people, assets and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion. Significant progress on furthering Corrosion Management best practices into many industries globally has been made by NACE International since the release of the IMPACT study in 2016. The Circular Economy is a broader view that patterns economic, agricultural and industrial systems around circular lifecycles, in which activities such as product reuse, maintenance, repair, refurbishment, etc. enhance value and reduce waste. Furthermore, Materials Stewardship is concerned with managing the flow of materials into society to improve its sustainability by mitigating environmental, economic and societal impacts and maximizing its efficiency and durability.

The Northern Area Western conference planned for February 2019 seeks to bring together the corrosion community to explore and discuss the concepts of Materials Sustainability and Materials Stewardship within the Circular Economy as additional principles to consider within Corrosion Management best practices. The conference technical program will also include program tracks focusing on oil and gas corrosion, infrastructure corrosion, and many other topics.
