TotalEnergies Bio-Based Polymer Solutions: Advancing Sustainability in the Medical Sector

Aligned with our ambition to get to Net Zero by 2050, together with society, all TotalEnergies polymer plants in Europe have been awarded International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC PLUS). This makes the full range of TotalEnergies products commercially available as TotalEnergies RE:newable polymers via mass-balance. Our products meet the stringent cleanliness and safety requirements of the pharmaceutical industry, conforming with European pharmacopeia standards. TotalEnergies helps the medical industry transition to more eco-friendly alternatives, in line with our ambition to reach 1 million tons of circular polymers by 2030.

ISSC PLUS is an international certification program that secures the chain of custody and traceability along the value chain from feedstock to final product, allowing companies to demonstrate their responsible approach to sustainable development for circular materials. Mass balance allows us to allocate the environmental benefits of bio-based feedstocks across the supply chain, while certification guarantees its integrity and adherence to sustainability standards.

Our bio-based range exhibits a negative carbon footprint by removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it emits during its production. 

Following the start-up of the La Mède biorefinery in 2019, TotalEnergies has access to renewable sources for its full polymer portfolio. The future start-up of the biorefinery in Grandpuits will further increase the capacities of renewable raw materials.

We are proud to offer our bio-based range of polyolefins to the medical sector, helping embrace sustainable alternatives and reduce carbon emissions effectively. 

Together, for a more responsible future with plastics.
