World-leading mineral specialties supplier Imerys has made a firm commitment to integrating sustainability into every aspect of its business. This includes supporting its customers’ own transition to a low-carbon economy through a growing portfolio of market-driven solutions which combine innovation with sustainability.
The Spica production facility in Civita Castellana was recently acquired from Imerys. The new company, renamed New Spica, aims to expand its activities from sanitaryware into the tableware, artistic ceramics and clay roof tile segments.
The Rumanian tableware manufacturer has started up a new Sacmi spray-dryer ATM18 that will allow to carry out part of their spray-dried powder production vertically and to completely recycle scrap and waste within the line.
The solution enables the Civita Castellana-based company to automate white finishing of sanitaryware. The supplied cell is equipped with the new Sacmi-Gaiotto NG Offline software and a customised handling system.
