2022 Proceedings on Engineering Sciences  
Corrosion implies to the irreparable damage or demolition of living tissues or materials due to electrochemical reactions. The automotive sector is rather bellicose and gives rise to metal corrosion in automotive parts due to high amount of pollution generated and due to de-icing salts. In power plants, corrosion is the principal agent leading to costly and critical downtimes. The water-steam circuits in fossil and nuclear power plants are inherently prone to corrosion, as metal components are
