Each year on April 24th, World 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐃𝐚𝐲 is celebrated to promote the awareness of Corrosion-related issues in our World and make these known by larger people.
A little history Corrosion Awareness Day has been launched by the World Corrosion Organization (WCO) -which is basically an umbrella organization of corrosion-related societiesworldwide – in 2010 in order to promote awareness of societal issues related to corrosion and mobilize the main actors. In 2020, this Awareness Day has been scheduled for April 24th.
What to do? Corrosion Awareness Day can be seen as an opportunity for corrosion and coatings industry professionals worldwide to inform business leaders, government officials, and the public about the effects of corrosion on people, assets, and the environment, and what can be done to mitigate and control it.
