Through their innovative partnership, LanzaTech, Total and L’Oréal have premiered the world’s
first sustainable packaging made from captured and recycled carbon emissions. The successful conversion process takes
place in three steps:
• LanzaTech captures industrial carbon emissions and converts them into ethanol using a unique biological process.
• Total, thanks to an innovative dehydration process jointly developed with IFP Axens, converts the ethanol into
ethylene before polymerizing it into polyethylene that has the same technical characteristics as its fossil
• L’Oréal uses this polyethylene to produce packaging with the same quality and properties as conventional
