We manage the waste generated by our activities through process traceability and control of the entire chain.
Waste from production activities generated by Eni in 2018 (over 88% in the E&P sector and over 10% in the R&M and Chemicals sector) increased compared to 2017, due in particular to the contribution of non-hazardous waste (88% of the total), while hazardous waste recorded a decrease. The increase is related to the E&P sectors (in particular, due to the ramp-up of the Zohr project in Egypt and the return to full operation of the Val d’Agri Oil Center, which was also affected by the increased production of aquifer water disposed of as waste) and R&M and Chemicals (following the general shutdown of the Taranto refinery and the disposals following flooding that occurred in 2017 at the Livorno refinery). Also in the G&P sector, the quantities of waste produced increased (both hazardous and non-hazardous) as a result of the greater quantities of waste generated during scheduled maintenance activities at EniPower plants. In 2018, the quantities of waste from production recovered by Eni increased in absolute terms, due to greater production, as well as in percentage terms compared to other destinations. The share of recovered/recycled waste more than doubled compared to 2017 for hazardous waste (16.4% vs 6.7% in 2017) and almost quadrupled for non-hazardous waste (42.3% vs 10.8% in 2017), rising to 40% of total waste disposed of.
