Microbially-influenced corrosion (MIC) is possibly the most extensive and expensive mode of corrosion. MIC has been documented in chemical, food and pulp and paper processing; conventional and nuclear power generation; exploration, production, transportation, storage and use of hydrocarbon fuels; and marine and fire protection systems. Although MIC does not produce an unique type of corrosion, most is localised corrosion and can take the form of pitting, crevice corrosion, under deposit corrosion and de-alloying, in addition to enhanced galvanic corrosion and erosion corrosion.
