New Italian law supports ArcelorMittal Italia on Taranto

by Hans Diederichs

ArcelorMittal notes the publication yesterday on the Italian Official Journal of a decree law adopted by the Italian Government. This decree law amends the so-called Crescita decree law which had removed legal protection pending the implementation of the environmental plan for the Taranto plant. Following its publication, the decree law comes into immediate force, although its permanence is subject to ratification by the Italian Parliament within 60 days. As a result of this development, ArcelorMittal Italia will continue operations beyond 6 September whilst continuing to monitor legal, regulatory and operational developments in relation to the Taranto plant closely in view of its continued viability.
