Wood Pellets Packaging Now Made of 50% Recycled Polymers


The TotalEnergies Premium Wood Pellets are now packed in high-performance polyethylene bags incorporating 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

The new innovative packaging is composed of a core layer of rPE2206, a low-density polyethylene (LDPE) grade made of 100% PCR content and part of the RE:clic circular polymer range, and high-performance Lumicene and Supertough metallocene virgin resins. It exhibits identical properties and thickness as fossil-based alternatives with a significantly reduced environmental footprint. Moreover, the printed area of the packaging has been reduced by 60% to improve recyclability and limit ink usage.

This development is the result of an internal effort within TotalEnergies to implement the circular economy in their own use of plastics.
