This paper presents the most significant information on the corrosion of steel structures, which can be a source of environmental pollution. It has been recognised that early detection of the hazard and application of appropriate protection are the basic conditions of elimination of pollution as a result of corrosion processes.

Basic information has been given on principles of cathodic protection, scope of application of the technique and its practical aspects. It has been stated that this highly effective anticorrosion technology can guarantee trouble-free operation of objects such as underground and underwater tanks, steel pipeline storage, or transporting oil products and aggressive chemical media.
