Sustainable reclamation

Our strategy for reclamation
Five guidelines which constantly inspire us
In line with green remediation principles, the company has been implementing a sustainable reclamation programme in order to identify the best cleanup solutions in terms of environmental impact. This approach is grounded in the analysis of reclamation project sustainability and requires sharing with all stakeholders, with particular focus on territories involved.

For Eni Reward, the execution of a sustainable reclamation project needs to guarantee stakeholder involvement in the decision-making process, in addition to compliance with the following guidelines:

  • 1
    protection

    of human health and the environment

  • 2
    removal of contaminants

    from groundwater and land, to enable recovery and reuse, in compliance with the value of circular economy

  • 3
    application of technologies

    low environmental impact innovation

  • 4
    development of reclaimed areas

    making them available for requalification and reindustrialisation

  • 5
    transition towards a Low Carbon future

    by reducing emissions, energy efficiency enhancement of activities, the use of gas and requalification of brownfields to enable the construction of energy generation plants using renewable sources

"The complexity of issues and pollution at sites where the company operates has enabled us to acquire a unique set of experiences and skills in the design and execution of reclamation operations"

FRANCESCO MISURACA, ITALIAN ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNICAL & SITE ACTIVITIES

Today Eni Rewind is present in over 80 sites, of which 17 in 13 Sites of National Interest, and owns approximately 3,800 hectares of areas in Italy. It also owns over 4000 hectares of land. As Eni' environmental company, it carries out reclamation operations at operative and decommissioned Eni sites in Italy and also manages waste generated by reclamation and industrial activities. In 2016 it was appointed by the Refining&Marketing business unit to carry out reclamation operations at decommissioned and operative service stations in Italy. Since 2018 it has also been carrying out land reclamation in the wake of pipeline bursts, in addition to managing the water division for the Gela refinery.

The process of environmental cleanup of a contaminated site

Eni Reward is structured to manage every single step of reclamation, from planning - carried out by the Engineering and Design department, with the support of environmental laboratories and the Research and Technology department- right through to the execution and management of works.

In Italy, every single phase of the complex reclamation process of a contaminated site is subject to stringent environmental legislation which regulates administrative procedures for obtaining the approval of characterisation plans and risk analysis results as well as authorisation for reclamation projects.

New Environmental Legislation

The main environmental standard is established by Legislative Decree no. 152, 3rd April 2006 (Environmental Consolidating Act), incorporating all major environmental legislation, divided into six parts: common provisions and general principles, procedures for strategic environmental assessment, for environmental impact assessment and for integrated environmental authorisation, regulations for soil protection and the fight against desertification, for the protection of water from pollution and the management of water resources, regulations on waste management and the reclamation of polluted sites, regulations for the protection of air and the reduction of emissions into the atmosphere and regulations on compensation for environmental damage.

Environmental laboratories

The Eni Rewind environmental laboratories of Ferrara, Priolo Gargallo and Asseminiare centres of excellence for the sampling and analysis of water and soil environmentalmatrices, waste and atmospheric emissions.

Cleanup techniques

Eni Rewind carries out reclamation activities for contaminated sites by applying the best intervention methods, in terms of sustainability and innovation. Given that relative environmental laws and regulations in force favour the application of in situ technologies, Eni Rewind prioritises the implementation of operations on the natural site of the contaminated matrix, therefore without the need for the excavation and movement of earth. To this effect, research and development activities are also oriented towards experimentation of increasingly eco-sustainable solutions, including bio-cleanup, with the in situ elimination of contaminants by means of biodegradation processes using bacteria, fungi and plants.

Sustainable Assessment Framework (SAF)

In line with its commitment to sustainability, Eni Rewind has developed SAF software - Sustainable Assessment Framework - to assess and compare potential reclamation plans in environmental, social and economic terms.

Research

The development of increasingly innovative and eco-compatible solutions for contaminatedsite reclamation is of fundamental importance to Eni Rewind.
