Energy producer and provider Total and plastic recycling service provider PureCycle Technologies have reached an agreement for plastic recycling.

As part of the agreement, Total will buy a certain portion of the output of PureCycle Technologies’ future facility in the US.

PureCycle Technologies will break the ground for the construction of the first plant in Ohio, US, this year. The facilities will produce 48,000t of recycled polypropylene.

The companies will also explore developing a new plant in Europe.

The partnership will strengthen Total’s presence in chemical recycling operation and offer new opportunities to meet the circular economy challenges.

In addition, it will contribute to Total’s commitment to produce 30% recycled polymers by 2030.

PureCycle Technologies CEO Mike Otworth said: “Total possesses world-class expertise in the research, development and production of polypropylene.

“We believe Total represents the best possible strategic partner for PureCycle as we strive to scale this very promising and transformational technology globally.

“The introduction of recycled polypropylene that can be used interchangeably with virgin resin will have an enormously beneficial impact on the global plastics circular economy.

“Total shares our passion to make this happen and we are very pleased to have them as a strategic partner.”

In December last year, Total joined forces with plastic recycling technology provider Recycling Technologies, global brands Nestlé and Mars to develop an innovative industrial chemical recycling industry in France.
