Soil Protection

Overall expenditure on remediation activities in Italy in 2014 was 43% more than in the previous year, amounting to
around 278 million euro and marking a recovery from the sharp decline of the previous two years due to the delay in
receiving some preliminary authorizations from the Public Administrations. Remediation activities in Italy have mainly been carried out through Syndial, a company dedicated to the remediation of contaminated sites following decommissioning (72% of total expenditure in 2014) followed by the chemicals sector (13%) and the R&M sector (10%).

Eni’s operations (more than 900 processes in progress) are spread over 17 Sites of National Interest (refineries and petrochemical plants) encompassing points of sale in the R&M sector and well fields in the E&P sector, and there are evidently extreme variations in the scale of any problems related to the remediation activities.

As for the production of waste from remediation, 95% of the volumes produced refers to the water pumped in the process
of remediating groundwater. As a result of the introduction of Article 243 of Italian Legislative Decree 152/06, measures
have already been finalized, and more are pending, aimed at preventing this waste. In volumetric terms, the 10% reduction compared with the previous year is partly due to this process, which will be more evident in the coming years.
