Abstract:

Two approaches to control of microbiologically influenced corrosion MIC have been developed that do not require the use of biocides. These strategies include the following 1 use of biofilms to inhibitor prevent corrosion and 2 manipulation removal or addition of an electron acceptor, including oxygen, sulfate and nitrate, to influence the microbial population.
