(ANSA) – CAGLIARI, 11 NOV – The procedure for obtaining the authorizations for the expansion of the Rwm bomb factory in Domusnovas, a plant in the Iglesiente owned by the German Rheinmet, will have to start all over again and be subjected to the environmental impact assessment (Via). This was established by the Council of State by accepting the appeal for the reform of the 2020 sentence of the Sardinian TAR, presented by Italia Nostra, the Basic Union Union for the Region of Sardinia, Assotziu Consumadoris Sardigna Onlus.
The administrative judges of the second degree have, in fact, canceled the single provision of the municipality of Iglesias which authorized the construction of the new production departments and the resolution of January 2019 by which the Regional Council decided not to subject the project to expand the factory and the new test field. In detail, the fourth section of the Council of State considers the submission to the Via mandatory since “the conclusions reached by the CTU (technical consultant, ed), appointed at first instance, do not allow to unequivocally exclude that the Rwm plant , even if only having regard to the production processes that are the subject of this dispute, constitutes an ‘integrated chemical plant for the production of explosives’ “. By itself, this classification dictates the need for an environmental impact assessment.
Secondly, the judges beat the Region “which, for the purposes of the investigation relating to the authorization of the test field 140, did not consider that it will be functionally connected to the departments in which the production of explosives takes place”. “The functional connection between the test field and the construction of the new R200 and R2010 departments entails – argues the Council of State – the need to include this intervention in the expansion project to be submitted to a mandatory route”. “A great result”, comment the recurring associations.
