Cementir Italia defends itself in light of ongoing investigation
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
Cementir Holding has responded to recent news on the ongoing investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office of Lecce on ‘illicit waste traffic’ at the Taranto cement plant belonging to its subsidiary, Cementir Italia.
Cementir Italia has claimed the correctness of its work and has expressed its full confidence in the work of the prosecutors, emphasising its hopes for a quick solution. It noted that it has regularly purchased flyashes for the Taranto plant, whose use, however marginal, completely ceased in 2016. The use of sludge in cement production is authorised by an Integrated Environmental Authorisation, which Cementir Italia has always adhered to.
Cementir Italia will cooperate with the investigating authority and will protect its interests before courts if it is proven that the material supplied by third parties is not in compliance with the law.
