Source:Adsale Plastics Network    Editor:JK    Date:15.Dec.2021

Plastic Omnium and TotalEnergies have signed a strategic partnership that will see them join forces 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.

 

Plastic Omnium and TotalEnergies will 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% 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 those plastics in automotive body parts 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 range of electric vehicles.

 

Valérie Goff, Senior Vice President, Polymers at TotalEnergies, remarked, “The partnership with Plastic Omnium is a great example of collaboration and innovation to develop ever-higher and environmentally friendly recycled plastic materials that help our OEM and vehicle manufacturer customers to reduce their carbon footprints.”

 

Stéphane Noël, President and CEO of Plastic Omnium Intelligent Exterior Systems, expressed, “Recycling plastic materials is a challenge to us as manufacturers, and a vital issue for our planet. This exciting partnership paves the way to providing responses that are better integrated and more environmentally friendly, reflecting our customers’ and suppliers’ carbon neutrality goals.”
