Total and Plastic Energy announce the creation of a strategic partnership and the development of the first chemical recycling project in France (Total 60 %, Plastic Energy 40 %). This plant, with a capacity of 15,000 tonnes per annum, will be located on the new Total platform zéro crude in Grandpuits, France. The project is expected to become operational in early 2023.
