TotalEnergies and Plastic Omnium to Develop Recycled Plastic Materials for the Automotive Industry

28-Dec-21

TotalEnergies and Plastic Omnium have signed a strategic partnership to design and develop new plastic materials, made from recycled polypropylene, which meet the demanding aesthetic and safety standards that apply to the automotive industry. 

TotalEnergies and Plastic Omnium will pool their innovation and engineering skills to design new types of recycled materials that offer enhanced performance and are better for the environment. These new materials, containing 20% to 100% recycled materials sourced from industrial and domestic waste streams, have a CO2 impact as much as six times lower than using virgin materials. 

The use of plastics in automotive bodywork plays a key role in cutting the automotive industry’s carbon emissions. They make it easier to improve aerodynamic performance and reduce the overall weight of vehicles, helping in turn to cut the amount of fuel used by internal combustion vehicles and increase the autonomy of electric vehicles.
