Lucart, another Pieralisi success story in the paper industry
Reusing waste and by-products from the paper industry is becoming one of the most important ways to have a competitive edge in the paper industry, as well as in many other sectors. The greatest efforts are being made to tackle this issue, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact linked to paper production, in the pursuit of solutions both aimed at reducing the demand for virgin raw materials and non self-produced energy, and also aimed at reducing waste flows intended for disposal.
In this context, Pieralisi has expanded its clientèle with another strategic partnership, with Lucart S.p.A. at the head of the namesake group, one of the leading European producers of machine glazed and tissue paper products (toilet paper, kitchen roll, paper napkins, paper tablecloths, tissues, etc.). More than 60 years of experience have enabled the company to develop its expertise, along with the experience and technology required to produce top-quality products that best accommodate customer requirements.
The paper production capacity of the Lucart Group comes to 300,000 tonnes/year and it includes products designed to meet the needs of different types of users, from large companies to end users.
Lucart has always been a highly innovation-oriented concern; they developed the first plant in Italy capable of recovering the cellulose fibres present in Tetra Pak® packaging, an eco-revolutionary project that has enabled the business to achieve a top-quality paper in a fully environmentally-friendly way.
Product quality and environmental friendliness have always underpinned our strategic choices, such as the strategic decision to embrace and implement the superior performance of a Pieralisi plant, specifically a latest-generation decanter centrifuge - the MAIOR 4 HS (high speed technology) that delivers a solid cake outlet with a high concentration of solid matter, a clarified liquid free from suspended solids and with a drastically reduced COD value thanks to the superior separation efficiency during processing, with obvious customer satisfaction.
Once again the teamwork on behalf of the Pieralisi team has led to an outstanding result, further strengthening its presence across Italy and confirming its leadership in the field of centrifugation.
