San Donato Milanese (Milan), 23 September 2020 - Eni Rewind, Eni's environmental company and centre of excellence for environmental recovery and circular use of natural resources, has expanded the scope of its activities beyond the group with the appointment by ArcelorMittal Italia to assist in the design of reclamation works at the former Ilva site in Taranto, Italy.
ArcelorMittal Italia will harness the skills and experience of Eni Rewind to set up new environmental initiatives around the steelworks. The contract also covers specialist assistance with the process for the authorities’ approval of the plan for mitigation works at the ArcelorMittal Italia plant in Taranto.
ArcelorMittal has already started carrying out environmental tests, which will include further soil characterisations on the land where the plants are located, using 3D conceptual and hydrogeological models. The aim is to collect further information to update ongoing containment works and to plan the mitigation works in the area, minimising the impact on the operation of the steelworks.
Eni Rewind’s role has gradually expanded from being Eni's global contractor for environmental activities to a company that also operates on behalf of third parties. In doing so, it now offers the market access to the skills and technologies it has developed in complex and diversified projects, both in Italy and internationally, in line with local sustainable development goals. Since 2019, that mission has been explicit in the very name of the company, where Rewind stands for “REmediation and Waste INto Development”.
