He continued stating that the partnership will bring many benefits as Ørsted has a market-leading expertise across the offshore wind energy chain, whereas Elicio is a qualified developer from the beginning of the bid, providing a basis for success of a competitive project.

Moreover, Total proceeded with announcements concerning the company acquiring Synova, who's a French leader in manufacturing high-performance recycled polypropylene for the automotive sector.

Synova produces 20.000 tonnes annually of polypropylene that meets the highest quality standards of original equipment manufacturers and automakers from recycled plastics.

The combination of Synova’s recycling expertise and Total’s polymers know-how will increase the supply of recycled polypropylene for automotive applications that deliver the same performance as virgin polymers.

Finally, Total is one of the founders of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, which unites almost 30 companies from across the plastic and consumer goods value chain.
