Hazard inspections wrapping up at ILVA steelworks in Italy

(ANSA) - Rome, October 10 - An evironmental inspection into the troubled ILVA steelworks will wrap up Thursday in the southern Italian port city of Taranto, Environment Minister Corrado Clini said Wednesday. Once completed, the results of the hazard inspection will be reviewed for one week before the environment ministry decides on further action. "A draft includes immediate measures to complete within three years which will bring about drastic reductions in polluting emissions," said Clini. Managers at ILVA are trying to keep the plant open despite previous orders to close departments due to health and environmental violations. The high-profile case has pitted environmental concerns due to high cancer rates against a local need for jobs.
