New MRC will help biorefineries with their corrosion challenges

During 2021 RISE will start a new MRC (Member Research Consortium). This is done in order to develop and provide suitable testing for corrosion evaluation of materials used in biorefinery production.

Biorefinery is an emerging technology and a continuously growing business sector with a continuous development of new advanced processes. Many of these processes are highly demanding regarding the corrosion resistance of the alloys used in biorefinery plants. This makes it challenging to introduce the new advanced processes on a large commercial scale and to benefit from their full potential.

Based on scientific research, as well as collaboration among researchers, scientists, material manufacturers and biorefinery plant operators, the new MRC will help its members with corrosion issues.

The immediate industrial benefits of the MRC include:

  • Improved knowledge regarding the material needs and the opportunities of corrosion resistant alloys in the biorefinery sector.
  • Establishment of a network promoting further and deeper discussions on related topics across the value chain.
  • Acquiring of the necessary information for relevant design of experiment on corrosion behaviour of corrosion resistant alloys under different exposure conditions. This aims to enable proper materials selection and exploitation of the opportunities of these alloys in biorefinery production.
  • Participation in joint material testing programs to obtain important corrosion data for alloys under relevant exposure conditions.

The long-term industrial benefits will be vital contributions to improvements for the complete value chain of biorefinery production including:

  • Technical – Suitable materials selection that enables advanced biorefinery processes
  • Environmental – Reduced material loss during biorefinery processes
  • Economic – Competitiveness of the biorefinery sector
