The new solvent and activated carbon recovery plant is an important investment for a company that has never stopped innovating and growing since 1969.
28 October 2023 is a day to remember for Laminati Cavanna. After months of work in the construction site, the new solvent and activated carbon recovery and regeneration plant was, in fact, officially opened, making Laminati Cavanna a flagship of Italian industry also on the environmental sustainability front. The new plant captures and treats VOC emissions, recuperating solvents according to efficiency criteria that allow for reuse in the production process, reducing costs and environmental impact in a virtuous circle typical of the circular economy.
During the morning, in the presence of the Authorities, suppliers and colleagues, Carlo Fornaroli, C.E.O. of Laminati Cavanna and Andrea Formigoni of DEC IMPIANTI S.p.A. presented the new plant in detail, offering an overview of the further progression of the company in the already solid path undertaken on the sustainability front.
«I’m very proud of this significant investment and of how we’ve managed these 5 months of construction » the President, Anna Paola Cavanna, began. «The opening ceremony was a party, a moment of sharing, in which Institutions, Associations, Universities and important international operators in the sector met together, united by the desire to look to the future and to discuss industrial solutions that make it possible to find the right balance between costs and sustainability, between growth and a reduction in environmental impact. We at Laminati Cavanna are fully committed, with a great desire to grow and remain protagonists in the flexible packaging sector; this is why we decided to bring together leading Italian paper converters, machine constructors, adhesive suppliers, journalists in the sector and, most of all, local Institutions, category Associations and the Cattolica University, to share a milestone for our company. With this authentic circular economy investment, we have aimed to look towards the future and reinforce our project of remaining a point of reference for the flexible packaging market in which we have been operating since 1969. A thank-you to all those who have participated in our opening ceremony! ».
