Why is it important?

​The sterilization step is typically overlooked in microbially induced corrosion research. This work shows that, while all sterilization methods eliminated living microorganisms from the surface, they had a net effect on corrosion. ​


This work presents a systematic methodology to evaluate both the efficacy of sterilization methods and their effect on corrosion response.
