Research & development

Thanks to a close relationship with all the parties involved in the supply chain we develop ongoing cutting-edge technologies to improve our machines, minimise our environmental impacts and save energy costs through a steady follow-up of all production processes.

Specialists in producing recycled core board for half-processed applications. Understanding customers’ needs is key. We focus on research, innovative products, safety and the care of the environment. The power of tradition looking into the technology of the future.

In 2018, icP and Cartiera dell ’Adda merged becoming the largest European group producing recycled core board for half-processed applications. We are the leader in the industry of core board and a touchstone for the Italian and international markets. We have grown stronger on existing export markets and we are branching out into new worldwide areas, which are the challenges of tomorrow. Our target is to focus on technological research with a special eye for the environment and sustainability.

We produce recycled core boards suitable for the following applications: Spiral and in-line tubes Laminates Edge-protectors Grey board in sheets Side runs & stock

To produce our core board we only use recovered fibre, which comes from household collection and industrial waste paper. Recycling is good for the environment and it is a real example of circular economy. Our machines are designed to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and to use a limited amount of water.


Our Goals

Every year we upgrade our machines with the most important worldwide suppliers for paper mills and equipment. We focus on ongoing quality improvement, energy cost savings, environmental care and safety.


We collaborate with high schools and universities to promote professional training opportunities for students in our company.
