The American Galvanizers Association has announced the release of Sustainable Solutions for Corrosion Protection, an informative 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.
