Italian Tintoria Pavese Spa joins ECWRTI
Tintoria Pavese Spa was founded in 1976 by two enterpreneurs specialized into production of linings made of artificial fibers: Mr. Ezio Ghiringhelli and Mr. Carlo Scopel. Both were already active in the sector with their weaving companies and they overtook part of the huge plant originally established in 1935 by Saitti-Fontana (at that time one of the leading groups in the Italian textile industry)
With a long term view capacity, not so widespread at that time in Italy, the two enterpreneurs, although competitor on the very same market, decided to join the dyeing and finishing business with the goal to have a deeper control of the vital production stage that follows the weaving stage.
In the middle of the ‘90s another weaver specialized in the same sector entered the company: Tessitura Mauri Spa.
Tintoria Pavese Spa is currently dyeing and finishing an average of 35.000 mt per day of cellulosic linings (Viscose, Cupro, Acetate) and cotton linings.
The production process starts with the scouring of the cloth, followed by the drying stage, then the goods can be dyed reactive (cold pad-batch process) or with direct and dispers dyestuff (pad – jigger process). After the dyeing stage goods are washed, dryed and finished.
100% of the production is done on commission base for the three connected companies (Ezio Ghiringhelli Spa , Scopel Spa, Mauri Spa) creating therefore a complete integration of the cycle even if, formally, Tintoria Pavese Spa is an independent legal entity.
Currently the waste water tratement is run into a physicl-chemical Fenton treatment plant and the waste water output is then discharged into the Public waste water network of the city of Pavia and depurated again into the city waste water treatment plant.
Our main goals for the ECWRTI project is to verify the possibility to reuse the waste water after the electro coagulation and the ultrafiltration process so that we can drastically reduce the final output of waste water as well as the production of sludges.
