ARC Sewer Corrosion & Odour Research
Linkage Project



8 & 9 July 2013, Traders Hotel, Brisbane

The SCORe Symposium, New Generation Odour Corrosion Management - Saving Dollars and Scents, was held on 8-9 July 2013 at the Traders Hotel in Brisbane.

Optimal management of sewer systems has been hindered by a limited understanding of several key in-sewer processes, and the lack of tools and reliable technologies to support strategic decisions and cost-effective sewer operation. The value of public assets is being diminished, as a result of corrosion, at an alarming rate of hundreds of millions of dollars yearly in Australia. The $20 million, five-year Sewer Corrosion & Odour Research (SCORe) program, funded by the Australian Research Council and many members of the Australia water utilities along with partners from overseas, is delivering highly valuable outcomes for the Australian water industry. This event explored these outcomes and how they have been applied within the industry.

The symposium covered the following four key areas:

  • Liquid phase controls
  • Gas phase controls
  • Corrosion control, prediction and coating performance, and
  • Odour and corrosion control through integrated management of assets

The program is available here.

PDF versions of the presentations are available below.
