The annual direct cost of corrosion estimated worldwide exceeds €1.32 trillion, which means approximately between 3 to 4% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of industrialized countries. Among the different types of corrosion Microbial Influenced Corrosion (MIC) caused by fouling is estimated to be involved in at least 10% of the corrosion problems of structures reaching to 50% in the case of subterranean pipes. Existing antifouling solutions include biocides and solutions not environmentally friendly. Latest research has begun to focus on greener replacements, but up to now, with low environmental performance and durability ratios. This fact has caused an urgent demand for greener, non-toxic or low-toxicity (green Anti-Fouling agents) and longer lasting antifouling compounds and technologies. The main objective of the project is the development of an innovative biomimetic and eco-efficient environmental technology for inhibiting microbial induced corrosion (MIC) produced by biofouling through the integration of microorganisms in a sol-gel coating for metal surfaces of civil engineering structures in marine and terrestrial environments. The potential economic impact of the technology developed in the project could mean approximately 612 billion € in direct cost.The general objectives are expected to be achieved through the following WPs:WP1: Microorganisms and inhibitors to be included in the sol-gel matrixWP2: Synthesis of a sol-gel enriched matrix for corrosion inhibitionWP3: Environmental aspects of the biomimetic developed coatingWP4: DemonstrationWP5: DisseminationWP6: Business models and ExploitationWP7: Project Management
