Plastic recycling: TotalEnergies and New Hope Energy partner for an advanced recycling project in the United States


TotalEnergies (Paris:TTE) (LSE:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and New Hope Energy today announced a commercial agreement under which New Hope Energy will build a state-of-the-art recycling plant in Texas to transform plastic waste into end of life in a recycled material. a raw material that TotalEnergies will buy in part and transform into virgin-grade polymers, usable for food-grade packaging.

The New Hope Energy plant is expected to begin production in 2025 and will use patented pyrolysis technology that was developed in partnership with Lummus Technology to process and convert more than 310,000 tonnes per year of mixed plastic waste that would otherwise go to waste. burial or incineration. . TotalEnergies will use 100,000 tons of recycled polymer feedstock (RPF) in its Texas-based production units to manufacture high-quality polymers suitable for food-grade applications such as flexible and rigid food packaging containers.

“We are delighted to partner with New Hope Energy, which offers promising technology and the ability to scale. This new project is a new concrete and significant step for TotalEnergies to take up the challenge of plastic recycling. and achieve our goal of producing 30% circular polymers by 2030,” said Valérie Goff, Senior Vice President, Polymers at TotalEnergies.

“TotalEnergies understands the need to increase recycling in the United States and abroad, and its 2030 renewable polymers goal demonstrates its commitment to the circular economy,” said Rusty Combs, president and CEO of New Hope Energy. “Our partnership with Lummus has allowed us to provide the scale and reliability needed to support them on this mission.”

“The ability to efficiently and economically convert plastic waste into pyrolysis oil for further use is a critical step in achieving a true circular economy,” mentioned Leon de Bruyn, President and CEO of Lummus Technology. “Helping TotalEnergies achieve its sustainability goals is exactly what our integrated treatment solutions are designed for.”
