Ms. Lucia Morselli has headed a steel mill in Toronto, Italy, according to the press service of the world's largest steel company ArcelorMittal.

The Italian division of ArcelorMittal announced on Tuesday, October 15, that from today Lucia Morselli will become chairman of the board of directors and CEO of the plant. In her post, she will replace Mathieu Jell, the current chairman and CEO, who will move to another position at ArcelorMittal.

“We are delighted to welcome Lucia as the new Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal Italia. She is widely recognized as an experienced business leader who has made significant contributions to the development of Italian industry. Her experience and knowledge will be very useful for ArcelorMittal Italia, as we strive to put the company on a more sustainable footing and strengthen the consensus on the future of the plant, ”commented the appointment of Gert van Polvoorde, CEO, Flat Products Division, ArcelorMittal Europe.

Earlier it became known that a group of citizens from Taranto, through lawyers of the international law firm Saccucci from Rome, submitted a new lawsuit against Italy to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg regarding the consequences of emissions from the ArcelorMittal metallurgical plant in Taranto.

By a judgment of 24 January, which entered into force on 24 June 2019, the Human Rights Court in Strasbourg found that the Italian state had failed to take measures aimed at ensuring the effective protection of the applicants' right to health and ruled that the Italian state should intervene in situation as soon as possible.

At the same time, ArcelorMittal said that if the Italian environmental legislation was introduced against them in full, taking into account the decision of the Court in Strasbourg, the company would be forced to stop production and send about 2,000 workers home. The government met ArcelorMittal halfway and left the exemptions from environmental standards signed during the sale of the plant in force for another year.
