Our history is closely linked to Eni's. It began in 2003, when Enichem transferred its production activities to Polimeri Europa (now Versalis) and was renamed Syndial. It had the mandate to manage the remediation of former industrial sites and the treatment of water and waste. This path resulted in the growth of our environmental know-how, to the point where we are now Eni's global contractor in Italy and abroad. In 2019, we changed our name to Eni Rewind. This reinforces our mission and supports the company’s market expansion as an operator for other companies, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
