Hypocarbonic Industry

Hypocarbonic Industry

Energy is the most important challenge facing us in the context of the environmental challenge. ITC is therefore developing ceramic processes with low environmental impact and minimum fossil fuel consumption, minimising CO2 emissions, drawing up a Carbon Footprint in ceramic products and processes, seeking implementation of electrification and the incorporation of renewable energies in ceramic industries, while optimising and improving the ceramic firing process with more sustainable kilns, among many other aspects.
