A clear example of Braskem's contribution is its world leadership in the production of so-called biopolymers - thermoplastic resins made from renewable raw materials.
We are talking about a Braskem innovation with a global impact: green polyethylene produced from ethanol made from sugarcane, a renewable source. Several companies are already using green polyethylene to make consumer goods. The big difference is that for every metric ton of green polyethylene produced, 2.5 tons of CO2 are removed from the atmosphereand the environment. The end result is greener production while retaining the characteristics of conventional plastic that can be reused and recycled after consumption, creating a positive value chain for the product.

Another important step Braskem has already announced is building a green propylene plant in order to produce green polypropylene, which will also be made from renewable raw materials. To learn more about Braskem's commitment to the development of sustainable chemicals, click here.
