TotalEnergies and Intraplás are collaborating to bring sustainable solutions to the packaging market without compromising performance and food safety. Intraplás is launching commercial products using TotalEnergies RE:newable polymer – a range of the RE:clic portfolio – coming from renewable sourcing, therefore, allowing for a substantial reduction of the final product’s carbon footprint.
TotalEnergies’ biorefinery in France allows leveraging direct access to renewable feedstock for its drop-in RE:newable polymer range. The resulting polymer is warranted under the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC PLUS) scheme, which uses a mass balance approach. As a result, the RE:newable range exhibits virgin-like properties suitable for high-end, demanding applications while significantly reducing carbon emissions.
Intraplás’ technical and commercial expertise has been fundamental in bringing this innovation to the packaging market. As the converter’s facilities are ISCC PLUS certified, thus facilitating traceability from the material production to the final application, Intraplás can provide high-performing, low-carbon, fossil-free products to its customers that need sustainable solutions in food packaging.
“Our RE:newable range is essential in achieving TotalEnergies’ ambition to produce 30 percent circular polymers by 2030. Our leading position as an integrated player on the market enables TotalEnergies to provide its customers with low-carbon, drop-in polymers from renewable sources in industrial quantities. This collaboration with our long-term partner Intraplás is another important milestone. Innovation is increasingly critical for companies to distinguish themselves in an increasingly competitive market,” said Olivier Greiner, Vice President, Polymers Europe & Orient at TotalEnergies.
“If innovating is essential to create value, the sustainability of an innovative product is the best basis for responding to socio-environmental challenges. It is our commitment to offer to the market more eco-friendly packaging solutions. We are increasingly investing in the incorporation of materials from renewable sources without compromising food safety, consumer well-being and product performance. This collaboration with our partner TotalEnergies is in line with our goals to reduce our carbon footprint, and provide more sustainable packaging solutions to our customers, consumers and contribute to a better world,” said Marisa Alves, Chief Procurement Officer of Intraplás.
