    2 / Plastics for the 21st century

    Plastics: a material advantage Plastics are all around us: in our homes, motor vehicles, healthcare We find them in packaging, electronics and even sports. Products made of plastic are strong, light, economical and recyclable. They have become an inescapable and indispensable part of our world.

    With the ongoing improvements in polymer properties, plastics are more than ever a material for the future. At Total Petrochemicals, intensive research reveals and creates new ways for the companys products to serve many customers consumer, business and industrial and their diverse needs. The company aims to create a wide range of products that facilitate, and even beautify, our daily lives.

  • What are the challenges we all face in the 21st century? A more sustainable exploitation of our natural and created resources, greater care of the environment, new and innovative products to meet our adapting lifestyles These are all challenges that Total Petrochemicals is committed to meeting, and its plastics will have a key role to play.

    Plastics can contribute to lighter weight cars and airplanes as well as to better insulated buildings, making it possible to reduce energy use and emissions on a daily and long-term basis. And plastic packaging, water pipes, electronics and medical applications can help to ensure that the growing needs of the increasing global population are met.

  • 4 / Plastics for the 21st century

    New feedstocks offer new advantagesWith the ever-growing importance of plastics, Total Petrochemicals is aware that demand for polymers will expand beyond the availability of oil-based feedstock. Therefore, the company actively searches for alternatives, while also developing new technologies that can answer the needs of a fast-changing world.

    The growing importance of ethaneOver the past years, petrochemicals in Europe have been moving away from the traditional naphtha base, with other resources gaining in importance. More and more polymers are produced from LPGs and ethane, which is widely available in the Middle East. Total Petrochemicals recently inaugurated one of the worlds biggest ethane crackers, in Ras Laffan, Qatar. Other projects are under development, but it is clear that even more profound solutions must be advanced

  • Diversifying with Methanol to OlefinsA raw material that can be obtained from natural gas, coal or even biomass, methanol offers very interesting opportunities for diversifying feedstock sources, in coal rich countries, for example. Total Petrochemicals research center in Feluy, Belgium, shows on a semi-industrial scale the technical and economic feasibility of Methanol to Olefins (MTO) and the olefin cracking process (OCP), leading the way for a world-first application of this innovative technology for producing olefins and polyolefins from methanol.

    Bioplastics for specific applicationsTotal Petrochemicals and Galactic have created the joint venture Futerro to develop technology for Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) bioplastics production. The pilot plant in Escanaffles, Belgium is the first in Europe to demonstrate the state-of-the-art technology that produces biobased and biodegradable PLA plastics from renewable sources like sugar beets. This type of bioplastic is particular useful in food packaging and textile product sectors.
