Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of metals is a highly documented hazard that baffles almost all the metal using industries. Several failures of this sort have been reported in the literature, especially in cooling towers, oil well explorations, alcohol industries, drainage pipes, underground tanks, nuclear power stations, heat exchangers, etc. This article briefs some keys for the field identification of microbial groups involved, explains a MIC monitoring program and analyses the physical, biological and chemical measures for MIC control
