The Nickel Institute and the Copper Development Association, working in collaboration, have developed a new series of technical presentations. The series is aimed at engineers involved in the design, specification, fabrication or operation of materials in contact with seawater, in industries such as wave and tidal energy, offshore wind energy, offshore oil and gas, and shipbuilding and ship repair. Delivered by technical experts, the presentations help users better understand the behaviour of copper-based alloys, stainless steels and nickel alloys in marine environments.

The presentations are available on the Copper Development Association website.

Feature Story:
A catalyst for sustainable operations
Nickel-containing catalysts are widely used in the refining and petrochemical industries worldwide. At end-of-life, catalysts are either sent to landfill or sent for recycling to recover the valuable metals they contain. Refineries in Kuwait are changing the way they handle spent catalysts.
