Arbeitsgebiet: Corrosion of passive alloys in aqueous solutions with different pH values
In OMVs ReOil© process plastic scrap is thermally decomposed and gaseous and liquid hydrocarbons are produced. The products have to be washed in different solutions of various pH levels. In the thesis the corrosion properties of 5 alloys (4 stainless steels and 1 nickel base alloy) are investigated in several washing solutions. In our Chair polarization scans are performed and in the OMV Lab in Gaenserndorf complementary autoclave tests will be done. The joint results will yield to a material selection for washing reactors in the next upscaled semi-industrial ReOil© plant.
