TotalEnergies Petrochemicals & Refining USA, Inc., an affiliate of broad energy company TotalEnergies announces its participation as a funding partner of the Polypropylene Recycling Coalition, an initiative of The Recycling Partnership. TotalEnergies’ collaboration within the Polypropylene Recycling Coalition will focus on increasing curbside recycling access for polypropylene (PP) to ensure this packaging material is widely recovered and reused in end-markets including food and beverage packaging, consumer products and automotive parts.
“TotalEnergies is pleased to partner with The Recycling Partnership’s Polypropylene Recycling Coalition as part of our Company’s ambition of producing 30% recycled and renewable polymers by 2030,” said Paul Colonna, Vice President, Polymers Americas. “We are committed to strengthening the recycling and circularity of polypropylene and working with our customers to develop innovative products with ever-higher performance, particularly in terms of the environment.”
The primary focus of The Partnership’s Polypropylene Recycling Coalition is to achieve the same high levels of recycling for polypropylene as other plastics like polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The path to achieve this goal is through contribution of grants to recycling facilities and targeting consumer education efforts as well as recycling infrastructure improvements.
