Strategic partnership targets recycled plastics for automotive use

LinkedIn +

Plastics manufacturer Plastic Omnium and oil and gas company TotalEnergies have signed a strategic partnership that they say will see the companies join forces to design and develop new plastic materials made from recycled polypropylene that meet the demanding aesthetic and safety standards that apply to the automotive industry.

The pair plan to pool their innovation and engineering skills to design new types of recycled materials that offer enhanced performance and are better for the environment while providing deliverable responses to the challenges raised by end-of-life plastics. These new materials, containing 20-100% recycled materials sourced from industrial and domestic waste streams, are claimed to have a CO2 impact that is as much as six times lower than using virgin materials.
