TotalEnergies claims ultra-pure solvent from plastic waste first

Cleantech outfit Clariter and TotalEnergies Fluids have taken the wraps off what is claimed to be the world’s first sustainable ultra-pure solvent made from plastic waste.

Ultra-pure solvents are used in cosmetics and markets that require safe, colourless, odourless, and tasteless products.

Producing these solvents from plastic waste not only significantly reduces their environmental footprint, but also contributes towards addressing the challenge of end-of-life plastics.

This result is the fruit of an 18-month collaboration between Clariter and TotalEnergies Fluids on joint research and development.

Clariter leverages its proprietary innovative upcycling technology to transform plastic waste into sustainable, high-quality solvents, waxes, and oils.

TotalEnergies Fluids then further converts the upcycled materials using its Hydro-De-Aromatization technology into very high purity solvents that meet the quality levels required for the most stringent applications.

“This new technology opens a broad field of solutions to help our industrial customers decarbonize their industry, and fully integrates within our target of commercializing 30% low carbon solvents by 2030”, said TotalEnergies Fluids business development director Didier Ribault.
