Grandpuits' future will be
Better, its future will be
The Total group presented Thursday to employee representatives its conversion project for its Ile-de-France refinery.
He wants to invest 500 million euros to close the classic refinery, install a biofuel production unit mainly intended for airplanes (biojet), a plastics recycling plant, another for the manufacture of bioplastics, and install on the site a solar power plant.
Total specifies that 150 positions will be eliminated in the operation, but that no dismissal will take place.
"There will not be a drop of oil on this site after 2023
," summarizes the general manager of the refining branch, Bernard Pinatel.
With the industrial reconversion of the Grandpuits refinery into a zero-oil platform focused on the energies of the future in the field of biomass and the circular economy, Total is demonstrating its commitment to the energy transition. ”
