Corrosion Awareness Day 24 April 2015

April 24, 2015 is Corrosion Awareness Day.  The World Corrosion Organization (WCO) seeks to educate the public and governments about the effects of corrosion on infrastructures worldwide.  The cost of corrosion is estimated at over 3% of gross national product.  A significant amount of this could be saved by implementing known corrosion-control technologies.  Doing so worldwide would result in a safer and more sustainable public and industrial infrastructure, and reduce long-term costs.  Public and governmental awareness of the opportunity is the first step.  The full WCO press release is at www.corrosion.org.
