Pipeline integrity management programs are being expanded to include assessment and control of carrier pipe corrosion within cased pipeline crossings. The application of vapor phase corrosion inhibitor (VCI) chemistry, combined with a corrosion rate monitoring system, provides an excellent method to mitigate and monitor corrosion within the annular space of cased pipeline sections.

This SBIR Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of producing bio-based, environmentally benign, products for the prevention and treatment of corrosion and scale from low-value agricultural by-product streams. These by-products are generally available in large quantities and fairly uniform composition. The broader/commercial impact of the proposed project will be introduction of a line of relatively high value biodegradable corrosion and scale inhibitors that make use of agricultural by-products that are currently used in low-value applications. These products will also provide environmental benefits to both producers and users due to the use of renewable feed stocks and the environmentally benign nature of the materials.
