Press Release Corrosion Awareness Day April 24, 2016
- Be Part of the Picture -
Corrosion Awareness is raised when incidents occur within a Production Plant or civil construction buildings like bridges etc. crash due to corrosion issues. Nearly all these incidents could be avoided when corrosion protection methods were properly applied or the right construction materials were chosen. The cost of corrosion damage is estimated to be in the range of billions of dollars per year worldwide and also lives could be saved if people were aware of corrosion problems.
The World Corrosion Organization has therefore created the Corrosion Awareness Day which will take place on April 24, 2016. All Corrosion Societies around the world are invited to organize evens and set up joint actions to bring corrosion into the public focus. The WCO offers support concerning promotion, coordination or secretarial support for the proposed actions.
