ArcelorMittal France, French subsidiary of global steel giant ArcelorMittal, has stated that allegations of illegal acid deposits caused by the storage area of its Florange site have been disproved by in-depth investigations by an accredited external laboratory and an independent hydrogeologist.

According to the company statement, the detailed investigations have shown the results of surface water analyses, groundwater analyses and complementary soil sampling revealing no acid pollution in the Florange facility.

The allegations were made in 2017 in French newspaper Republicain Lorrain by a former worker of the company responsible for disposal of toxic waste from the plant in Florange. At the time, ArcelorMittal had announced that internal investigations could not find any trace of acid pollution at the storage area of the facility.
