Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Corrosion in Supercritical Water—Waste Destruction Environments
Supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) is an effective process for the destruction of military and industrial wastes including wastewater sludge. This article discusses the unique properties of supercritical water and lists the main technological advantages of SCWO. For many waste streams, corrosion continues to be one of the central challenges to the full development of the SCWO technology. The article presents a summary of selected materials exposed to various environments as well as the observed form of corrosion in a table. It also illustrates the necessity to adopt a synergistic approach incorporating feed chemistry control, reactor design modifications, and intelligent materials selection, for mitigating degradation of SCWO systems.
