During the workshop, different aspects of sulphur-assisted corrosion (microbial processes, modelling, effect of sulphur species on the corrosion of carbon steel and copper, …) were addressed. A panel discussion was organised to identify open issues in the investigation of sulphur-assisted corrosion phenomena and how to incorporate these in reliable lifetime prediction of metallic barriers. This paper gives a summary of the main outcomes of these discussions.
