Corrosion is an expensive silent assassin

Corrosion can strike hard and unexpectedly, with major consequences in terms of costs and safety. This is according to Arjan Mol, Professor of Corrosion technology and electrochemistry at TU Delft, in his inaugural address ‘Rust Roest’ (Rest Rusts) on Wednesday, 17 April at TU Delft. Good integrated project management can prevent a lot of problems.
