In the beginning 2022 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:
The long-term industrial benefits will be vital contributions to improvements for the complete value chain of biorefinery production including:
Please contact us for more information on the MRC and how to become a member.
On May 20, 2021, RISE, Processum and the French Corrosion Institute co-organized the first digital event of MRC Biorefinery “New Member Program on Corrosion in Biorefinery Production”. Total of 44 participants from 24 companies/institutes in 8 countries were registered from various key sectors including biorefinery plant operators, material producers and technology and service providers. The event aimed to introduce the concept of the MRC to potential members. During the event:
The next digital meeting will be held in Q3 of 2021. Please contact us for more information on the meeting.
