Event details:

Corrosion has a big impact in many sectors and it's estimated that it costs about 3% of the world's GDP every year.  Manufacturing industries such as power, chemicals and oil & gas spend hundreds of billions of dollars every year to control and mitigate this issue.  CorrosionRADAR was born to address this issue through sensing and predictive analytics and is on the path to make a global impact on pipeline corrosion through its technology.
