R&D

Research and Development

Our R&D department is housed in an 800 m2 laboratory, where a team of technical experts – all qualified chemicals and engineers – are involved in using sophisticated measuring and inspection equipment to monitor the quality of the raw materials and the compliance of the  nished products with the agreed standards, as well as the performance achieved by new prototypes.

We work with the Universities of Milan, Salerno, Parma and Piacenza, and with the National Council of Research in Milan and Genoa. And we also sponsor the University of St. Petersburg.

The presence of a pilot blown extrusion line at our R & D Department greatly facilitates the study of new materials and the development of new formulations. In recent years, ITP has invested 6 million Euros in research dedicated to the evolution of food packaging, while continuously supporting applied research conducted by a team of four researchers.

The result is the deposit, from 2010 to today, of seven patents.

The main research areas concern renewable raw materials; compostable and biodegradable raw materials; the reduction of  film thickness intended for packaging; foodstuff  protection to increase its shelf-life and consequent reduction in waste. We use raw materials that allow recycling and, consequently, the potential reuse of the plastic  films at the end of their life.
