A circular approach driven by demand and enabled by technology

The circular economy focuses on ways to eliminate waste and limit the use of natural resources by reusing, repurposing and recycling. Technip Energies is active player operating in this growing market. We offer a wide range of recycling and other solutions to help companies of all sizes and industry sectors move to a circular economy business model.

Innovative circular solutions

Technip Energies brings its experience with traditional industries to power proven circular economy solutions to reduce waste and pollution. Our circular economy innovations are based on extensive knowledge of materials processing and long-standing partnerships with the world’s biggest industrial players and renowned brand owners. 

We offer start-up consultancy services to help our partners shift to a circular economy by finalizing processes and beginning industrialization and commercialization. We provide early-stage action plans to assess plant budgets and develop business cases, helping companies adapt their processes to a feasible circular model. 

Specialized skills for a changing world

We are helping clients boost their sustainability credentials by moving toward a circular economy throughout the value chain. Regardless of the project type, our recycling technology and other circular products and services support companies of every size from established players to startups. Our key references include a demonstration plant in France for Carbios PET, the development of TruStyrenyx™, the first commercial technology to depolymerize waste polystyrene back to a 99.8 wt% purity styrene monomer, our joint development project with Synova and SABIC to produce olefins and aromatics from plastic waste,  and our alliance with BP Infinia enabling circularity for difficult-to-recycle PET plastic waste.
