Leadership in Biopolymers

Braskem is the world leader in the production of biopolymers. In 2010, the company introduced green polyethylene on the market, a product made from a renewable resource, sugarcane ethanol. It is a unique initiative in the world due to the quantities involved and the quality of development. When used by a wide range of industries, Braskem's green polyethylene gives rise to "green plastic" products.

A major hallmark of green polyethylene is its viability, combined with outstanding production. This is because the product has a positive environmental balance, because for every metric ton of CO2 produced, 2.5 tons are removed from the atmosphere over the entire production chain. Since its characteristics and application performance are the same as conventional polyethylene made from petrochemistry, Clients around the world can use it easily and immediately.
What's more, products made with green polyethylene can usually be recycled and/or reused time and time again.

In another major advance, Braskem will soon be launching green polypropylene, which will also be produced from renewable raw materials. Research and development of new forms of production based on renewable raw materials have advanced by leaps and bounds.
