EFC-Event No. 350
Single oxidant situations are not often present in high temperature industrial environments. Rather, mixtures of oxygen with other species are encountered which make the high temperature corrosion situation more complex than simply the formation of a homogeneous oxide scale on the material surface. Examples of such environments include various combustion atmospheres, e.g. oxy fuel combustion, the combustion of biomass, industrial residues or domestic waste, as well as gasification environments with low oxygen partial pressures and high activities of e.g. carbon, sulphur and other constituents. Although significant efforts have been undertaken in recent years to throw further light on such complex conditions, there still exists a considerable ambiguity and lack of understanding concerning the different mechanisms and how their interactions with one another govern the long term effects on materials. The need for further exploration in this area and for predictable component operation in such environments has significantly risen in recent years, as the intention to more efficiently use available resources has instigated increased planning to use hitherto unexploited fuels and supplies in high temperature processes. The aim of the workshop, thus, is to review the current state of knowledge and understanding in this area of materials science and to identify the needs for future research. It will follow similar approaches of former workshops in this series of EFC events on high temperature corrosion. All those interested the topic of this workshop are cordially invited to attend.
