Materials in the pulp and paper industry (CPPI) are exposed to corrosive environments in almost all applications. This member programme deals with corrosion challenges within the entire production process.

When producing pulp and paper, there are many production steps in which materials are exposed to extreme corrosive environments, such as in digesters, evaporators, recovery boilers, bleaching, paper making machines and chemical storage tanks.

The high costs of exchange of and reparations of equipment, often caused by increased demands on recycling and energy savings, has led to new challenges within corrosion protection.
