Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of steel – a study using correlative SEM, EDX and Raman microscopy

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Direct costs due to corrosion worldwide amount to 3% and in some countries up to 5% of the GDP (gross domesticproduct) [1]. Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is responsible for 20% of all corrosion damage [2]. In thiscontext, there is great interest in understanding MIC especially, since it has been shown that some microbes slowdown the rate of corrosion [3], while others speed it up. The study of MIC is a challenge, as there is a wide range ofpotential microbes and mechanisms that make it difficult to find a generalized explanation of MIC.
