Electrochemical Processes and Industries, including corrosion monitoring and prevention, is a dynamic cross-cutting area that can impact many energy intensive industries as well as the energy infrastructure in the state such as natural gas pipelines. IOF-WV has actively participated in corrosion projects in the past and is currently active in the development of a corrosion sensor. This sector includes R&D on batteries, fuel cells, and other electrochemical-based technologies. IOF-WV provides program management support to the newly created WVU Center for Electrochemical Energy Storage.
