Commission wraps up first segment of ILVA plant study


(ANSA) - Taranto, August 30 - The ministerial committee
studying the future of the troubled ILVA steel plant in the
southern city of Taranto wrapped up its first segment of work
The group of experts appointed by Environment Minister
Corrado Clini has finished studying documents related to the
steel plant, one of Europe's largest and charged with ignoring
pollution and health violations for years.
After a weekend break, the committee will meet again Monday
to talk about new operating technologies to bring the plant up
to European standards.
Besides its ministerial mandate, the committee must also
comply with orders from the investigating magistrate Patrizia
Todisco, who seized parts of the plant last month after many
years of complaints about its pollution.
Clini has said he'll return to Taranto on September 14 to
assess progress in mapping out the environmental upgrades for
the steelworks, which employs 12,000 people in a region hit hard
by the economic crisis.
The courts have closed parts of the steel mill in a move
which ILVA has said will essentially halt production not just in
Taranto but at its other plants as well.
Still, the plant's chief executive Bruno Ferrante said on
Wednesday that plant was still functioning at 70% of its
The company, workers, the unions, and the Italian
government have all been working together to keep the plant
operating while the environmental upgrades are made.
