Under the auspices of the Technology & Energy Expert Committee, ICC and in cooperation Department of Chemicals & Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India and with the support of Asian Pacific Corrosion Control Conference and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay is organizing a One-day Workshop on "CORROSION CONTROL IN CHEMICAL PROCESS INDUSTRIES" on Wednesday, 27 January 2016. The venue of the Workshop is Victor Menezes Convention Center, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai - 400 076.


Corrosion causes productivity loss and affects safety, environment and profitability. The course is meant to address measures to control corrosion effectively in industries. The Organizing Committee will make all efforts to foster quality deliberations on Corrosion Science and Engineering and also make your participation a memorable one. For more details visit : www.apccc17.org.

Due to several environmental catastrophes including major ones of Seveso [1976], Bhopal [1986], and the perceived risks associated with its activities, the chemical sector has been exposed to an increasing pressure to improve the management of its environmental impacts. The Responsible Care Programme launched in India through Indian Chemical Council (ICC) is a unilateral voluntary initiative encouraging firms to adopt beyond-compliance policies and commit themselves to continually enhance their health, safety and environmental performances. By acting in a responsible way, the chemical industries expect to earn public trust to continue its operations in a safe and profitable way and with due care for the interests of future generations.

Many safety related incidents and disasters have been linked to material failures in components, plant equipment, transportation systems, storage vessels, etc. The Workshop on "Corrosion Control in Chemical Process Industries" to be held on Wednesday, 27 January 2016 in association with two prestigious bodies, APCCC and IIT Bombay, addresses these issues. The participants will be imparted knowledge by an erudite and experienced faculty on material selection, processing, protection measures, corrosion control and mitigation, with several case histories from the chemical process industries. In the open forum, the industries will voluntarily share their experiences and pose queries on problems faced by them.

The APCCC-ICC-IIT Bombay workshop will encourage the participating industries to improve the safety standards by addressing material degradation issues in their plants.


Prof. Lalit Mohan Gantayet, Member, Technology & Energy Expert Committee of ICC is the Convener for the Workshop. The faculty comprises of leading corrosion engineering professionals with decades of experience in combating corrosion in Chemical Process and Allied Industries. The course will cover right from an understanding of the materials, their corrosion behavior, to mitigation of corrosion in process environment encountered in a host of chemical industries. The participants will be exposed to important issues in selection of materials as well asfabrication techniques. The topics will also include High Temperature Corrosion and Mitigation of Reformer Units and Stainless Steels and Nickel Base Alloys, Corrosion in Mineral Acids. Open Forum will address real life problems brought forth by the participants. The detailed programme giving the topics is attached herewith for reference.


The workshop will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers and engineers to deliberate on recent developments in Corrosion Science and Engineering.  Executives, Managers, Project and O &M Personnel from manufacturing industries will be benefited by attending the Workshop.


To defray the expenses, the registration charges will be Rs. 3,000/- per delegate (No service tax).
