The words of President Draghi “encourage us because they are aimed at the future, on what the steel mill could become by alleviating the environmental and health burden that the city of Taranto has been paying for for too many years. Well the look to the future and to hydrogen, but the prospects announced by Draghi do not satisfy the many nodes linked to the current functioning of the plant, to the protection of workers, contractors, plant maintenance, pollution. The road to decarbonization is long, the times for decontamination are very long and uncertain due to the complexity and extent of the polluted and compromised areas. The current problems of the plant are many and deserve answers from Draghi, I expect this crisis table to be managed by Palazzo Chigi and that the premier does not shy away from urgent information on the Ex Ilva crisis. The Tarantini people, the workers, the entrepreneurs need to know how long they will have to pay a high price for the national GDP where the blackmail of work wins over the health of an entire community “. This was stated in a note by Vincenza Labriola, deputy of Forza Italia.
