ICT supports education
At ICT Italia, we recognise the importance of education in achieving professional and personal growth, which is why in 2019 we will once again translate this idea into action with the “Study with ICT” call for applications, aimed at supporting our employees’ families by purchasing school textbooks, from middle school to university, and covering university enrolment and tuition fees for their offspring. This initiative has been in place for several years now and has been very well received by our staff.
The paper mill, in Piano della Rocca, obtains ISO 14001 certification
For many years now, we have been managing our processes and activities in accordance with the most stringent environmental standards, including the ISO 14001 standard. In confirmation of this fact, the environmental management system of the Piano della Rocca paper mill has also been recently and successfully audited by the certification body SGS Italia S.p.A. The certificate of conformity with the ISO 14001:2015 standard, which has been updated following the successful outcome of the audit, is now available in the Sustainability section of the website.
New developments at the ICT plant in Italy
Works are finally over: the new offices in Piano della Rocca are now ready to host our staff. With this new project, flows have also been modified in order to ensure greater safety and optimise logistics. All of the works were completed as planned and they mark a major improvement for the facility.

Greater efficiency for the Europaper plant
The revamp of the paper machine PM5 continues at the Europaper facility in Monzone. After installing the new pulping system in 2015, the replacement of the blower hoods and its air system is scheduled for August. The new hoods, supplied by a one of the market leader, , wraps the Yankee dryer, blows hot air against the sheet of paper and promotes evaporation of the water contained. This investment will make it possible to reduce energy consumption and to increase daily output of the paper machine.
Open day in ICT Poland: over 900 people at the Kostrzyn facility
ICT Poland opened the doors of its Kostrzyn facility with an Open Day for all employees, their families and anyone wishing to find out more about the company. The guided tours throughout the facility allowed visitors to observe the entire production process that distinguishes ICT business and learn about our products.

Since the 8th of February, ICT Ibérica has become part of the Lifeguard Project and has been integrated into the Network of Cardio-Protected Companies of Aragon. In order to improve medical care for our workers, three defibrillators (Expedition Building, Converting Zone and Paper Mill Zone) have been installed to reduce the intervention time. In addition, 30 workers have been trained in basic first aid (Basic Life Support) and the necessary skills to be able to carry out the first care of cardiac arrest until the arrival of the specialized teams. In this way we have 2 people trained per shift and zone. The defibrillators are semi-automatic and, in case of emergency, could be used by anyone, as a voice guides you at all times and will not perform the shock if you are not in cardiac arrest. The initiative was very well received by all staff and has aroused interest in first aid among many workers.
ICT Group remains committed to sustainability and environmental protection
After starting up the two vacuum generating systems at the paper mills in Italy, a third one was installed at the ICT Poland plant. The new vacuum generating system for PM11 consists of two blowers, two hydraulic separators and two flow meters for drainage control. It saves between 30 and 70% of energy and does not consume any water, unlike traditional vacuum systems. Thanks to the efficient heat recovery systems located on the exhaust of the blowers, the process water taken from the river can be heated, thus further reducing energy consumption. The system is clearly one of the best solutions in terms of energy saving and reliability.
