Effect of bacteria in soil towards the corrosion of water-pipeline: a review


N.A.H. Abdul Haris and Sitti Fatimah Mhd. Ramle and Muhammad Azwadi Sulaiman and Mohamad Najmi Masri (2015) Effect of bacteria in soil towards the corrosion of water-pipeline: a review. Journal of Tropical Resources and Sustainable Sciences, 3. pp. 29-33. ISSN 2289-3946


Corrosion is a process of deterioration of metal surfaces where the metals were
degraded into another compound. Soil is one of the medium known to have
constituted to corrosion of metals. The soil creates an environment for the
movement of electrons. The level of corrosion in soil can vary from major
material loss or to minor effects. The buried pipelines are exposed to the soil
that may experience corrosion attack. The study of the soil as a corrosive
environment is important to mitigate the problem which may be serious to the
environment and economy. There are few factors that contribute to the corrosion
processes. This review focuses only to sulfate and sulfate reducing bacteria in
soil. Hence, this review investigates the relationship of sulfate and sulfatereducing
bacteria in soil.
