This publication presents the significance of long-term materials performance in industrial settings, as well as the methods needed to control microbially influenced corrosion (MIC). They cover MIC mechanisms and evaluations of carbon steels, stainless steels, copper-base alloys, and more.
Written by international experts in the field, this book presents emerging molecular methods that allow the diversity of a microbial community to be surveyed and its functions to be investigated.
Emerging molecular methods. Application of molecular microbiological methods in various industrial applications, medical settings and natural environments. Methods and technologies currently in use. 2014 Caister Academic Press
Proceedings from the International Symposium on Applied Microbiology and Molecular Biology in Oil Systems (ISMOS-2), 2009.
This book addresses the major problems microbes cause in oil fields, (e.g. biocorrosion and souring) and how beneficial microbial activities may be exploited (e.g. MEOR and biofuels).
