Enel Defends Position over Sulphur Dioxide Pollution in Bulgarian Village
3 September 2007, Monday
Italy’s energy conglomerate Enel has expressed its position concerning the sulphur dioxide pollution in Bulgaria’s village of Galabovo at a press conference on Monday saying the company’s contribution to the environmental problem is minimal….
“Except Enel is one of the biggest energy investors in Bulgaria, it has launched many social and education initiatives in the region of Galabovo,” Viale added….
The Regional Environmental Inspectorate in the village of Galabovo registered levels of sulphur dioxide, which twice exceeded the allowed threshold. It occurred twice since the beginning of March. (Full Story)
Note by folc.ca: Going by Enel, sulphur-dioxide pollution in Galabovo is a good thing, at worst minimal. However, going by environmental standards, Enel’s sulphur-dioxide pollution is not minimal at all; it is excessive.
Enel’s “education initiatives” apparently did not include practical instructions to Galabovo residents as to how to avoid breathing health-damaging air.
