Golden leaves, roofs made out of red clay tiles, bells ringing every 15 minutes, mountains at every horizon, people walking the streets as if there are no troubles in the world - the old glory of true European style immediately surrounds me as I set foot in Austria’s Graz. Graz is hosting the European Congress for Coatings, EUROCORR, for the first time in its history.
Most attendees are from Europe and the Middle East; very few US companies are present. Corrosion protection is gaining more importance as resource limitations and ecological problems are tackled. Advenira offers inexpensive and hazard-free coatings that protect oil and gas infrastructure, as well as other mechanisms suffering corrosion issues. It was very rewarding to have a tremendous interest and multiple engagements coming from this event.
