      Plastic Energy said it will build a recycling plant on the same site as its existing operating facility in Seville.

    It is reported that Total Energy will process Plastic Energy's raw materials into polymers at its European production facilities for applications such as food-grade packaging

    In October last year, the two companies also established a strategic partnership with Freepoint Ecosystem, announcing the establishment of a similar recycling plant in Texas, USA, which will have an annual recycling capacity of 33,000 tons of plastic waste and is expected to start operations in mid-2024.
