Enhanced Mitigation of Pipeline Biocorrosion Using A Mixture of D-Amino Acids with A Biocide

This project will develop a new biocide enhancer technology from laboratory tests to field applications to mitigate biofilms in the prevention of MIC. Experimental tasks will evaluate these as well as additional D-amino acids in combination with THPS (one of the most popular biocide in pipeline treatment) to treat field biofilm consortia. In the 2nd year, field trials will be carried out to validate the technology.
