To the International Corrosion Community,
Welcome to the 21st International Corrosion Congress & the 8th International Corrosion Meeting!
It is a great honor to host this joint event and to welcome all participants from all over the world to enjoy these days of experience exchange.
Brazil returns to host one of the major worldwide events of corrosion, ICC – INTERNATIONAL CORROSION CONGRESS. In 1978, the 7th edition of the congress was held by ABRACO, in Rio de Janeiro, under the command of our respected Dr. Aldo Cordeiro Dutra, as president of the Executive Committee.
As we could not do differently, the 21st ICC will be held together with our traditional INTERCORR, the most representative Brazilian corrosion prevention event. With no doubt, this meeting will be the ideal opportunity to be in contact with the greatest worldwide corrosion masters.
The moment we live today highlights the importance of fostering such an event in Brazil, bringing together renowned experts from around the world, seeking solutions to contribute to the recovery that the industrial sector needs. Maintaining asset integrity, minimizing operational and maintenance costs, are extremely pertinent concerns to our daily routine that have a direct impact on corporate budgets.
It will be an opportunity to keep abreast of innovations and the most innovative corrosion prevention technologies that are important for our professional performance.
We wish you all an excellent congress!
Zehbour Panossian President of the ExecutiveExecutivo
Olga Baptista Ferraz Vice-President of the Executive Committee
