Synova produces around 20,000 tonnes of high-grade polypropylene from recycled plastics for car manufacturers.

PARIS- French energy major Total said it had acquired unlisted plastics recycling company Synova for an undisclosed amount, in a move that expands Total's plastics recycling business and helps to curb plastics waste.
