(ANSA) - Rome, August 14 - The World Health Organisation
(WHO) will help monitor pollution levels in Taranto as the
authorities try to clean up the ILVA steel plant in the southern
Italian city, Italian Environment Minister Corrado Clini said on
Tuesday.
The government and the company are fighting a court order
to close parts of the plant until it is upgraded to meet
international standards because of concerns about the impact of
the pollution it generates is having on local people's health.
The company said closure would threaten the future of the
plant and the jobs of the 12,000 people who work at the plant
and many others in the related 'supply chain'.
ILVA wants to keep the plant in operation during the
upgrade.
"I have asked the WHO to collaborate in controls on
pollution in Taranto, specifically the European Centre for
Environment and Health in Copenhagen, and I had confirmation
(that this will be possible) yesterday," Clini told the House.
