IIT(ISM) ENVIS Centre Celebrates World Ozone Day 2021


Date | 08 September, 2021:

As every year, this year also IIT(ISM) ENVIS Centre at Department of Environmental Science & Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (ISM) Dhanbad is celebrating World Ozone Day.

India is a Party to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer and the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and all its amendments.
