(ANSA) - Taranto, September 18 - The chairman of the ILVA
steelworks - Italy's largest - presented a 400-million-euro
remediation plan to the Taranto courthouse Tuesday that included
covering its mineral storage to seal off a major source of toxic
dust.
ILVA's Taranto plant is at the center of a major industrial
and environmental dispute that filled headlines when the court
in the southern Italian port ordered the shutdown of its
smelting facilities and mineral park in July, saying the
steelworks was the source of an ongoing environmental disaster.
The court accused ILVA of emanating plumes of toxic dust
and other emissions that threatened the health of nearby
residents.
The court-ordered partial shutdown sparked worker protests,
strikes and a flurry of meetings between government and business
leaders to find a way to save the plant, which is considered
crucial for Italian industry, and an important source of
employment in Italy's underdeveloped south.
ILVA claims covering the mineral park would cut its dust
dispersion by 70-90%, and has commissioned the Luxembourg-based
company Paul Wurth to present an adequate system.
Paul Wurth is a global leader in designing and building
steel manufacturing facilities.
