World-leading research on corrosion

With the Swedish Energy Agency as a co-financier, the High Temperature Corrosion Centre HTC works in close collaboration with companies to create cost-effective materials for industrial processes and make Sweden’s energy system more eco-friendly.

Working for a greener future

The aim of HTC’s work is to create an understanding of why corrosion occurs, and help develop new, more suitable corrosion resistant materials. The research creates a framework in which findings are generalised and can be applied across a range of different industries.

Participating research groups

Scientists from Chalmers University of Technology conduct research at HTC with help from scientists from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, RISE IVF and RISE KIMAB. Together, they contribute with their cutting edge skills within the field of high-temperature corrosion.

The host university is Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. It is here the majority of the fundamental research into HTC takes place in high-tech laboratory environments.
