At Eni Rewind, we truly believe the environment is our own home. This is why we
work to protect it, every single day. Even when we have had to transfer assets, branches,
buildings, shares or units of our company to other players, we continue to feel responsible.
We have maintained our commitment to indemnity for expenses incurred by these companies
for environmental cleanup. We always verify the technical applicability of projects
and actions implemented to this effect. We are always ready to collaborate with external
Bodies and international organisations, for the development of innovative environmental
operative regulations and standards.
The environmental sustainability of company activities is a topic of great interest for Eni Rewind. In order to implement a sustainability policy, best practices for reclamation have been put in place, prioritising in situ/ on site disposal techniques which ensure the achievement of set targets while minimising waste generation (unlike excavation and ex situ transport of polluted soil).
The most significant environmental impact of Eni Rewind is the generation of reclamation and decommissioning waste, therefore it is correlated with core business development. This is why for some years now, Eni Rewind has been adopting management methods focused on reducing its own environmental impact. On the one hand, transport logistics have been optimised by seeking out "kilometre zero solutions" and the use of alternatives to road transport. On the other hand, a waste recovery plan has been implemented, for waste which would otherwise be disposed of in landfills. In 2019, almost 169 kton of material was recovered, amounting to approximately 59% of all potentially recoverable waste. The calculation also considers brokerage activities carried out for Eni companies.
In the environmental field, the main challenges we are facing are:
The evolution of national and international legislation
The spread of environmental best practices
Operative support in identifying optimal technical solutions for environmental protection
The spread and development of specific know-how with reference to the evolution of technologies
The implementation of protocols and environmental data monitoring systems for environmental certification and performance analysis purposes
The monitoring of energy consumption optimisation programmes to reduce emissions and environmental impact
We pursue our activities with the aim of exploiting all arising opportunities for circularity, with focus in qualitative and quantitative terms, on the recovery of water, waste and brownfields, which are decommissioned industrial areas. The qualitative recovery of underground water is guaranteed thanks to TAF plants which we manage across all national territory, treating approximately 36 million cubic metres of water each year. We promote the recycling of water treated by our TAF plants, thanks to the re-emission of water into the aquifer (and therefore back into the natural cycle), or re-use for industrial purposes, whenever possible. We also encourage the opportunity for the economic development of brownfields, otherwise unusable, returning reclaimed areas to the territory for successive industrialisation initiatives.CONTINUE READING
