Intellicorr is a 5 year EU Horizon 2020 funded research project that will investigate localised corrosion in sweet environments and the potential for green corrosion protection using the corrosion product layer 

"There is arguably no bigger challenge to engineers than ensuring the security of affordable and environmentally-sustainable energy. Corrosion is one of the major life-limiting factors for energy supply (oil and gas, renewables, EOR) and in environmental pollution control (CCS) costing 3% GDP. Yet we are still unable to predict localised pitting corrosion, and currently use massive volumes of chemicals to mitigate corrosion. This project will bring together some of the most exciting experimental and modelling engineering science to create a framework for the intelligent management of corrosion."
Prof. Anne Neville
Principal Investigator

Intellicorr will use synchrotron techniques, advanced microscopy, numerical methods and environmental/cost analysis to bring about unprecedented advances in (a) prediction and management of localised pitting corrosion and (b) novel methods for green corrosion protection using the natural corrosion product layer.

Intellicorr is hosted by the Institute of Functional Surfaces (iFS) at the University of Leeds. Research will be undertaken by the team in the Corrosion Laboratory dedicated to sweet and HP/HT corrosion studies
