TotalEnergies and Ecolab partner to launch heavy use packaging incorporating Post-Consumer Recycled plastic within RE:clic portfolio

TotalEnergies and Ecolab have partnered to launch plastic packaging incorporating recycled material that will contribute to promoting circularity in heavy-use packaging markets.

This launch is the culmination of a close collaboration to introduce post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic into primary packaging for highly concentrated cleaning products, starting with the supply of TotalEnergies RE:use rPE6314 grade – within the RE:clic portfolio of circular polymers – in the MAXX S range for Facility care. It is part of a larger effort by both companies to drive solutions that prevent waste and protect people, the planet, and business.

“Delivering sustainable solutions without compromising on performance is instrumental in enlarging the market for recycled plastics. This collaboration with Ecolab is an excellent example of a value chain partnership aimed at enabling circularity for highly technical applications and it fully contributes to our ambition of producing 30% circular polymers by 2030,” said Olivier Greiner, Vice President Polymers Europe & Orient, at TotalEnergies.

“The collaboration with TotalEnergies proves once again how important it is to create innovative partnerships to provide the best solutions,” said Anja de Reus, VP Sustainability Europe at Ecolab. “At Ecolab, we are committed to continuously improving our packaging by offering our customers products that are designed to optimize the amount of plastic and minimize environmental impact. This is part of our commitment to provide every customer with an overall positive impact and deliver value.”

TotalEnergies and Ecolab’s initiatives are fully aligned with the European dynamic in terms of circular economy for plastics. Indeed, at the European level, changes in regulations are in order, with the purpose of addressing the need for efficient and sustainable products. The European Union is developing the Sustainable Products Initiative to incorporate sustainability throughout the whole lifecycle of the product, and to boost circularity. This initiative will help take another important step into the direction of reaching the Green Deal objectives to make Europe a more resource-efficient, climate neutral, and pollution-free circular economy.
