The effectiveness of amine and imidazoline-based corrosion inhibitors on carbon steel was compared in CO2
saturated artificial geothermal water. Weight loss tests were carried out under the influence of the stirring speed
in accordance with the conditions that exist on the production side (160 ◦C) and the injection side (80 ◦C) in
geothermal power plants in the Upper Rhine Graben (URG). Corresponding to a possible two-phase flow, the
corrosion behavior and inhibitor performance in the liquid and the gas phase was investigated. In addition,
depending on the inhibitor concentration and various hydrodynamic conditions, electrochemical tests such as
potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (80 ◦C) were carried out.
