Honeywell, TotalEnergies Partner to Promote Advanced Plastic Recycling

French energy firm TotalEnergies SE (NYSE: TTE) and Honeywell International, Inc. (NASDAQ: HON) have signed an agreement to promote the development of advanced plastic recycling.

As per the terms of the agreement, Honeywell will use its UpCycle Process Technology to supply Recycled Polymer Feedstock (RPF) to TotalEnergies. TTE will convert this raw material into virgin-quality polymers for use in high demanding applications like food-grade packaging.

Honeywell will use the UpCycle Process Technology to make RPF at its soon-to-be-built advanced recycling plant in Andalucía, Spain. The North Carolina-based company plans to build the plant in a joint venture with Spanish infrastructure operator and developer Sacyr (SYRVF).

The Andalucía plant, which is expected to commence operations in 2023, is planned to process and convert 30,000 tons of mixed plastic waste into RFP every year. TotalEnergies will use this RPF to manufacture high-quality polymers at its production units in Europe.

Valérie Goff, the Senior Vice-President of Polymers at TotalEnergies, said, “This project, with a 2023 targeted startup, will contribute to meet our ambition of producing 30% recycled and renewable polymers by 2030.”

The Vice-President and General Manager of Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions, Ben Owens, said, “The relationship with TotalEnergies will provide a strong recycled polymer feedstock offtake partner and coupled with our recently announced advanced recycling plant with Sacyr, Honeywell is leading the drive toward a more circular plastics economy.”
