The petrochemical plant was built by S.I.R. in 1962, for phenol production. Successively,
production of the following substances was developed:olefins, aromatics, cumene, ammonia,
urea, ammonium sulphate, tripolyphosphate, sulphuric and phosphoric acid, caustic
soda, chlorine, LAB, synthetic fibres and rubbers, plastics like ABS, polyethylene,
VCM and PVC. In 1982 the activities of S.I.R. were handed over to Eni which in 1994,
following the reorganisation of production activities, handed over its VCM-PVC production
line to EVC (now Vynils). In 1995, the production of LAB (linear alkylbenzene) was
handed over to CONDEA (now SASOL).
In 2001 Eni's environmental company undertook management activities for emergency safety containment and Groundwater Treatment Plants (TAF), an integral part of works required for Aquifer Reclamation, along with the establishment of monitoring networks, characterisation activities and Investigation Plans.
