ITV RECEIVES ECORIBA AWARD FOR ITS COMMITMENT TO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY
ITV Ice Makers has received the EcoRiba Circular award, which rewards companies that have implemented significant actions in the field of the circular economy in terms of energy efficiency, reduction, reuse and recycling of waste or reduction of CO2 emissions.
ITV is a company at the forefront of technological progress and one of the strategic pillars on which it is based is respect for the environment. In this sense, the company has been carrying out different actions for years to promote the circular economy and reduce the consumption and waste of raw materials, water and energy sources.
Reuse, energy efficiency and reduction of the environmental impact are priorities for ITV machines
Some of the main actions carried out at an internal process level are the installation of a tank for the treatment and reuse of water, which has made it possible to reduce water consumption by 500%, a reduction in waste oils from the process and management by authorised companies, and optimisation of the use of paper in administrative processes (by digitalising most of the documentation) and by using recycled paper.
In addition, this policy of promoting economic circularity is reflected in the products developed. In this sense, in recent years the company has made a great effort to reduce the energy consumption of ice machines and the refrigerants used in ice machines have been replaced by environmentally friendly refrigerants such as R290 (Propane) or CO2.
In addition, to encourage users to replace their old models with new ones that respect the environment, the company has a so-called Renewal Plan.
In order to develop these circular economy actions, the company relies on an R+D policy that has allowed it to continuously innovate in processes and products. Currently, ITV is recognised by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of the Spanish Government as an Innovative SME.
