TotalEnergies Lubrifiants Commits to Sustainable Packaging

This commitment is intended to offer its partners and customers solutions that promote a circular economy, says the company.

TotalEnergies Lubrifiants announced it is making a commitment to sustainable packaging. This comes a year after the launch of the Quartz Xtra range, developed to meet the needs of the latest generation of engines (hybrids, downsized) and providing significant fuel savings (up to 4%¹). 

The company says it is stepping up its efforts to promote the circular economy and is taking it a step further by offering HDPE (high density polyethylene) cans for the Quartz Xtra range, which are made from 50% recycled plastics² and are 100% recyclable.

“We are committed to offering our partners and customers solutions that promote a circular economy. This project demonstrates our technical expertise and our ability to innovate, putting our products at the service of mobility that is both efficient and sustainable,” notes Jean Parizot, automotive director of TotalEnergies Lubrifiants.

The recycled resins come from a processing unit where the waste materials are crushed, separated and transformed into reusable granules. The recycled material represents 50% of the new packaging, says the company.

The Quartz Xtra HDPE cans are fully recyclable many times. The waste is recycled into secondary raw materials without changing the basic structure of the material. Quartz Xtra lubricants manufactured in Europe now benefit from this new packaging for the 1 and 5 liter sizes.

This innovation boosts the use of recycled plastics in TotalEnergies’ packaging and contributes to the company’s ambition to offer increasingly affordable, clean, reliable energy that is accessible to as many people as possible.
