TotalEnergies (Paris:TTE) (LSE:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and Paprec,
leader in plastic recycling in France, have signed a long-term
commercial agreement to develop a French value chain for advanced
recycling of plastic film wastes. The agreement will secure the
supply of TotalEnergies' future advanced plastic recycling plant in
Following the terms of this agreement, Citeo, the main
organization in charge of end-of-life household packaging in
France, will provide a stream of flexible plastic waste sorted from
post-consumer packaging. This stream will be delivered to the
Paprec Plastiques 80 plant in Amiens (France), where a
first-of-its-kind sorting and preparation line will be built.
TotalEnergies will use this French-origin waste in its advanced
recycling plant at the Grandpuits zero-crude platform and will
produce recycled plastics which have the same properties as
food-grade virgin plastics.
The advanced recycling plant, built by TotalEnergies (60%) and
Plastic Energy (40%), will be able to process 15,000 tons of waste
per year and is scheduled to be operational in 2024.
"This long-term agreement is a major milestone for our advanced
recycling plant at Grandpuits, as it guarantees a supply of waste
of French-origin," said Valérie Goff, Senior Vice President
Renewable Fuels & Chemicals at TotalEnergies. "It is a tangible
example of TotalEnergies' commitment to developing a circular
economy for plastics and fully contributes to our ambition of
producing 30% circular polymers by 2030."
"Our job is to provide our customers and partners with circular
packaging that makes it possible to return material to its original
use and achieve carbon savings. We are taking an aggressive,
innovative approach to monolayer resins such as PET, HDPE and PVC.
This innovation with TotalEnergies supplements mechanical, or 'low
carbon' recycling, which cannot offer the same circularity for
plastic that's not as eco-designed or that's too soiled. Supporting
and developing French industrial excellence is one of our
missions," said Sébastien Petithuguenin, Chairman and CEO of Paprec

commissioned, the largest in the Ile-de-France region.
-- September 2022: Partnership signed with Saria, lifting the site's
sustainable aviation fuel production capacity from 170,000 to 210,000
tons per year.
-- November 2022: Innovation by TotalEnergies and Air Liquide to produce and
use renewable, low carbon hydrogen in the future biorefinery to make
sustainable aviation fuel.
-- March 2023: Agreement with Paprec to develop the first French value chain

About TotalEnergies in Grandpuits
Commissioned in 1966, Total's Grandpuits-Bailly-Carrois refinery
was for a long time the only refinery in the Paris region. In
September 2020, TotalEnergies launched a project to convert the
site, in line with its strategy to become carbon neutral by 2050.
This zero-crude project, with a total investment of more than 500
million euros, is based on the development of several
future-oriented activities in the field of biomass, renewable
energies, and the circular economy: chemical recycling of plastic
waste, production of biosourced and biodegradable bioplastics,
production of biofuels for the aviation sector, construction of a
solar farm and electricity storage by batteries. The start-up of
these new units will begin in 2022, and they should all be
operational by 2025.
About TotalEnergies and Polymers
TotalEnergies develops, produces and commercializes polymers --
polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, their recycled
equivalents and biopolymers -- that can be incorporated in the
plastics manufacturing process. Lighter than many alternative
materials, they help reduce the carbon footprint of end-use
applications through enhanced energy efficiency. TotalEnergies'
polymers experts in Europe, Asia and the United States of America
are working alongside all the professionals in the value chain,
including plastic manufacturers, research centers, waste collection
and sorting companies, and their customers to accelerate in the
circular economy. The Company is developing different plastic
recycling processes and using renewable raw materials, with the
ambition to commercialize 30% circular polymers by 2030.
The group was founded by the Petithuguenin's family in 1994 and
has been managed by the family since its creation. Paprec is the
French leader in recycling and one of the main european actors of
waste treatment and energy from waste recovery. The group has grown
from 45 employees to 13,000, spread over more than 300 sites in din
countries. In 2022, the group managed 16 million tonnes of waste
and sales went over 2.5 billion euros.
