Key facts and figures
ICT SpA: leading a Group known worldwide for its commitment to excellence

Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti (ICT) was founded in 1976 in Italy, in the Lucca province, to operate in the tissue sector, producing high quality paper exclusively from virgin fibre. The first production facility was opened in 1978 in Piano della Rocca, Lucca, and over the years new plants and facilities have been set up in Piano della Rocca, Diecimo and Piano di Coreglia. The Foxy brand, one of the leading brands in the European market, was launched in 1982. ICT is an example of excellence in the paper industry, in full harmony with the tradition of the Lucca region, where the most important Italian papermaking hub is located, on a par with those of Green Bay (USA) and Fuji (Japan). In Lucca in particular, great expertise has been nurtured in the field of paper for household use, and the city is in fact known as the world tissue capital. Today, ICT SpA boasts an annual production capacity of about 160,000 tonnes.

An environmentally sustainable choice

Biological wastewater treatment plants have been successfully set up at the paper mills of Piano di Coreglia and Piano della Rocca. The fact that excellent results in terms of pollution abatement have been achieved since the plants were put into operation demonstrates the effectiveness of the technology used. These plants, based on MBBR technology combined with a final microfiltration step, are designed to discharge wastewater with parameters well below the limits set by the new EU standards.

New vacuum generating systems in operation at the Piano della Rocca and Piano di Coreglia paper mills

Two new vacuum generating systems have been put into operation at the Piano della Rocca and Piano di Coreglia paper mills. The technologies adopted will bring savings in terms of freshwater use, which is essential to produce paper, as well as a significant reduction in energy consumption and, consequently, lower CO2 emissions. Turbo blower technology, installed as a replacement for liquid ring pump technology, is currently one of the best solutions to reduce the energy impact, in line with the requirements of the BREF (Best Available Techniques Reference Document) for the paper industry. Such interventions demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the ICT Group to sustainability and environmental protection.
