arcelormittal taranto  The region of Apulia in sourthern Italy published last year a new legislation on odour management, the Legge Regionale Puglia 32/2018. This legislation was a bit different from other odour legislations around the world cause it defined different odour impact criteria (OIC) according to the sensitivity of the people affected by the odour impact. Last week the Constitutional Court of Italy repealed this new legislation. Why?

 Taranto is a beautiful coastal city in the region of Apulia that happen to be also the location of Europe's largest steelworks. This factory, now part of ArcelorMittal, was key in Italian 2018 election campaign. At that time the Italian party Five star Movement promised to close the factory after years and years of odour complaints and other environmental issues.

  In January 2018, the DWER of WA released a draft of an Odour guideline for prescribed premises designed to guide applicants, licensees, consultants, members of the public and Department staff on the requirements for odour impact risk analysis. The public consultation finished in April 2018, and now the final document has been published.
