Brochure Touts Green Aspects of Galvanizing
Posted by MSC on October 13, 2008 at 3:46 PM.

The American Galvanizers Association has released Sustainable Solutions for Corrosion Protection, a free brochure detailing new research regarding the strength and sustainability of hot-dip galvanized steel in the alternative energy market.

 

Sustainable Solutions explores how using hot-dip galvanized steel in biofuel, wind, hydroelectric, and solar structures not only protects them from the effects of corrosion, but also is highly sustainable and earth-friendly. Highlighting the inevitability of corrosion, this brochure stresses the importance of making intelligent environmental and economic decisions, supported by real-life case studies from each sector of the alternative energy market. It also explains how the natural, recyclable zinc coating created in the galvanizing process will provide superior corrosion protection without requiring the costly carbon footprint of maintenance.

 

Learn how to further the earth-friendly efforts of alternative energy sources by incorporating hot-dip galvanizing. Request a free Sustainable Solutions brochure by visiting www.galvanizeit.org.
