Possible to reconcile health and production, ILVA chief says


(ANSA) - Taranto, August 28 - The difficulties facing the
ILVA steelworks in Taranto could also represent a major
opportunity for the southern port city and for the country at
large, company president Bruno Ferrante said on Tuesday.
"We must show Taranto that it is possible to reconcile
health and production," Ferrante said in response to
environmentalists whose long-running concerns about pollution
emanating from the plant led to its partial closure at the end
of July.
ILVA is currently working with a team of experts appointed
by the environment ministry to map out the measures needed to
bring one of Europe's largest steelworks in line with European
and local environmental norms.
"The commission appointed by minister Clini has begun its
work," the ILVA president said.
"Yesterday the members visited the plant and now they are
assessing the situation. We are waiting to see what decisions
they will take. There is great cooperation on our part".
The review of the steelworks on the basis of dispositions
made by Taranto's preliminary investigations judge in July is
due for completion by the end of September.
Meanwhile ILVA is locked in a legal battle to keep the
plant in operation while the environmental upgrades are carried
