The Annual Conference of Alkali Manufacturers Association of India (AMAI) is scheduled to be held at Ahmedabad, Gujarat on March 14 – 15, 2024.

Being held with support of the Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India, the theme of this year’s conference is “Corrosion Challenges and Advancement in Corrosion Combating Materials”.

“Corrosion poses a significant challenge for the Alkali Industry as both raw materials (salt) and the goods produced (caustic soda, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, sodium hypochlorite, etc.) are highly corrosive, affecting plant assets and operations. Corrosion affects infrastructure and equipment, adding to the burden of investments. While maintenance and replacement costs are significant, risks to human health and life, and to the environment are incalculable. The upcoming AMAI conference with some of the finest minds in the country and latest technologies on display will serve as a milestone in meeting the corrosion challenge head-on,” said Ajay Virmani, President, AMAI.

A highlight of the conference is the release of a Compendium on Combating Corrosion in Alkali Industry. The compendium will have articles collated from AMAI’s periodical the Alkali Bulletin since 2016 written by experts besides case studies from the industry members and success stories in advanced anticorrosive materials by vendors/suppliers.

The two-day conference will have six curated sessions covering all the aspects including Corrosion management technologies, Optimizing process through corrosion prevention, Learning from effectively mitigating corrosion, Advanced corrosion resistant materials and Coatings & Linings to prevent corrosion.

A concurrent exhibition will be held at the conference venue on both the days with participation from leading organisations and technology providers.
