Abstract: Corrosion protection was always the important part of industrial development. Effective corrosion inhibitors prolong the life of equipment and machinery and in this way minimize the use of natural resources including ore, oil, petroleum, water, etc. On the other hand, growing world manufacturing constantly increases the volume of utilized natural resources. A number of regulations were implemented recently for the protection of the environment. The most known among them are North Sea (UK, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands) and US Gulf Coast lists of the chemicals environmentally acceptable in these regions, limiting the number of chemicals allowed for use in accordance with their level of biodegradability, bioaccumulation and toxicity. This paper presents several products that are very effective in providing corrosion/scale inhibition and also formulated from biodegradable environmentally friendly raw materials, manufactured from renewable resources. Quality of these products is confirmed by laboratory testing according to ASTM and/or other standards and field results.

Keywords: biobased scale inhibitor, biobased corrosion inhibitor, cooling water treatment, boiler condensate additive, S-10F, S-14 Bio.
