Feasibility of Chemical Inhibition of Ethanol SCC

The objectives of this research project are to: (1) Obtain the consensus of all stakeholders on the selection of inhibitors to be evaluated for stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) prevention and develop a general understanding of the criteria to select inhibitors acceptable to the operators and end users. This will be done through a workshop. (2) Evaluate the performance of selected inhibitors in long term crack growth experiments under flowing conditions simulated by jet impingement. (3) Develop a method to rapidly evaluate and select SCC inhibitors for use in Fuel Grade Ethanol (FGE).
