Report - Corcon 2015
 
International Corrosion Conference and Expo (CORCON 2015) November 19–21, 2015 Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai, India
The CORCON 2015, 23rd Annual International Corrosion Conference and Expo was organized during 18th to 21st November 2015 at Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai by NACE International Gateway India Section (NIGIS). The event was supported by Department of Chemicals & Petrochemicals and Department of Commerce & Industry of Government of India, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry and Department of Commerce of United States of America. This year East Asia Pacific Area (EAPA) Conference EAP 2015 was jointly organized along with CORCON 2015. 
 
With a vibrant theme of “Conquering Corrosion Worldwide” CORCON 2015 aimed at providing a platform to promote fruitful interactions between stake holders and policy makers; to present breakthrough achievements in corrosion control by research fraternity, to showcase world class products, to conduct brain storming sessions to solve challenging issues in industries, and to develop networking between corrosion professionals which will evolve into fruitful international collaborations.  
 
The conference was inaugurated on 19th November, 2015 by Dr. Vijay Kumar Saraswat, Member NITI Aayog, Government of India, In his initial remarks on the impact of corrosion on the national economy, he expressed that “All Industries in India contribute significantly in the economic growth of the country. A substantial portion of our national GDP is lost due to corrosion and these industries are facing difficult conditions in corrosion estimation, effective prevention and control. In today’s highly competitive environment it has become necessary for the Indian industries to increase production by minimizing loss by avoiding unwanted shutdowns and accidents due to corrosion. The setting up of a national organization for corrosion control which is in its final stages of approval, is in tandem with the Government of India’s ‘Make in India,’ program, and that too with ‘zero defects’. The country is losing nearly $76 billion or 4% of GDP average each year due to corrosion. He also touched upon the importance of corrosion prevention in the defense and aviation sector and encouraged the corrosion fraternity to come up with novel solutions to combat corrosion. Later in his Pleanary Talk on “Surface Protection Technologies”, Dr. Saraswat highlighted the development of polymer, ceramic, composite and metallic coatings for missile and other sensitive defense equipment applications. Guest of Honors for the inaugural function were Mr. Surjit K. Choudhary, Secretary, Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Government of India, Mr. B. Narayan, Group President, Procurement & Projects, Reliance industries Ltd., Mr. Jim Feather, President, NACE International, USA and Mr. Robert Chalker, CEO NACE International, USA. Shri. S.K. Chaudhary pointed out the significance of the need for technology to curb issues of corrosion in various sectors, and the Government of India has proposed to set up a National Bureau of Corrosion Control. He also elaborated his wide experience as Municipal Commissioner during early days of career and highlighted the importance of corrosion in day to day life and in maintaining public property. He stressed on a disciplined approach towards preventing corrosion as it can save industrial property and national assets. Mr. Jim Feather described NACE as an organization working in various nations to prevent corrosion. He also informed that US Commercial Services will support the Bureau of Corrosion Control to be started in India. He further explained that the Bureau along with NACE can issue certification and also help companies to devise mechanisms of corrosion control. Shri. B. Narayan has highlighted the importance of corrosion prevention in large petrochemical industries. He stressed the importance of corrosion in the chemical plants, where corrosion prevention is a day to day activity. He expressed his anxiety and keenness for a well planned and disciplined procedure to combat corrosion in chemical industry. Mr. Robert Chalker stressed the importance of making people and companies to adopt the best strategies and practices to prevent damage of equipment due to corrosion. 
 
Dr Samir Degan, Vice President Elect, NACE International and Trustee 2015 NACE International Gateway India Section (NIGIS), cited some of the accomplishments of the past year including the success of CORCON 2014 held in Mumbai and the successful hosting of over 40 educational and certification courses. A host of other corrosion awareness programs were held in collaboration with RDSO, Lucknow; GAIL, NIRDESH, etc., with plans to expand to cities like Vishikapatanam in the coming year. “One of our biggest achievements has been the Government of India’s announcement of the National Mission on Corrosion Technologies and Standards,” said Dr Degan. Michelle Lau, Area Director 2014-2017, NACE International East Asia & Pacific Area noted that CORCON provides an excellent platform for your engagement with your peers and industry personnel, not just locally, but from many other countries around the globe.
