Smart, self-powered patches to put an end to EUR 2.3 trillion bill caused by rust worldwide

The cost of corrosion runs to around 3 per cent of the gross world product (GWP) annually, and therefore there is increasing international focus on monitoring infrastructure projects. The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is developing a smart patch that can cut huge amounts off the costs of rust.
