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 190,000 tonnes.

PM2 energy efficiency projects

The focus of ICT on the environment continues: the company has carried out two important energy efficiency projects on the paper machine PM2 at the Piano della Rocca site.

The first project consisted in improving the efficiency of the approach system by replacing the existing fan pumps with new, accurately sized pumps. In addition, state-of-the-art motors and inverters were installed replacing the previous supply system.  As expected when designing the project, the adopted solution saves a significant amount of electrical energy and, as a result, reduces CO2 emissions for the production of paper.

The second one concerned the drying stage, where the heat loss of the Yankee dryer was reduced installing specially designed insulation systems. This intervention ensures a reduction I n gas consumption and the related polluting emissions during the drying of paper; it has also resulted in improved environmental working conditions for the operators.

A new investment to reduce emissions and save energy

ICT continues to make progress in pursuing the goal of reducing the impact on the environment and announces a new sustainable investment: the methane gas burners of the hoods on machine 4, installed at the Piano di Coreglia plant, have been replaced. The hood blows hot air on the paper, which helps to dry it. This revamping project involved the installation of two new high energy-efficient burners with low CO (carbon monoxide) and NOx (nitrogen oxides) emissions.

Friday 25th September dedicated to sustainability

Today we join #FSCFriday, the international day of responsible forest management promoted by FSC©, which aims to raise awareness of the role of forests in everyday life.

Since years, ICT Group has chosen to be part of a responsible supply chain to contribute to preserving forests and promoting sustainable management activities, respecting the environment, people and forestry ecosystems.

Cellulose is one of the most sensitive materials we use in ICT and must be carefully managed throughout the supply management and production process; products bearing an FSC label guarantee consumers that the raw materials used come from responsibly managed forests, respecting high environmental, social and economic standards.
