Intro Inovação

We believe that transformation is everywhere.

It’s time to use our transformative potential to establish a new relationship with our ecosystem and tackle climate change as our planet’s greatest challenge. That’s why our ambition is to lead the movement through real change.

To make this happen, we rely on disruptive innovation as the path forward to achieve sustainability. Research, digital transformation and bold partnerships are our greatest allies for creating new business models and supporting our continued development.

From promoting plastic circularity to driving the bio-based materials revolution, we are committed to reducing reliance on finite resources and reducing carbon emissions, making a positive impact for a better society. Improving lives at scale, every day, is our way of showing that we believe in change.

In a fast-paced world, we follow our vocation for transformation by choosing to act NOW, bringing shared value to our chain, thinking ahead and pushing the boundaries of our industry. Because change comes faster and better when we work collectively. Together, we can be builders of a truly sustainable era.

Thumb Sustainea


A joint venture born from the union between Braskem and Sojitz to lead the revolution in biomaterials and accelerate the fight against climate change.

The result of this partnership, for the first time, MEG, the raw material used in PET manufacturing, will be produced from a renewable source, on a large scale.

Thumb Reciclagem Química


In addition to mechanical recycling that is already widespread, we have efforts aimed at advanced recycling, a process that also consists of the transformation of plastic into circular raw material for the production of new products, whether chemicals or plastics.

Together, mechanical recycling and advanced recycling allow more plastics to be recycled, since each technique has greater efficacy with a type of waste. Our investments on this front have already resulted in great partnerships and the development of innovative technology that makes the process more efficient, enabling the emission of less CO2.

Parceria Lummus


We have joined Lummus Technology, a global leader in value-driven energy solutions and process technologies, to license the technology we use to produce renewable ethylene internationally.

The partnership will speed up the use of bioethanol for production of chemicals and plastics, supporting the industry’s efforts towards a carbon neutral circular economy.



New Braskem company to support the sustainable energy transition of its customers and partners. With a team experienced in the management of one of the largest energy consumers in the country, it will work in the co-creation of customized solutions in services and commercialization of energy and gas for the chemical and petrochemical chain.

Thumb Centro de Tecnologia e Inovação


Located in Brazil, USA, Mexico and Germany, the innovation and technology centers (CTI) are responsible for promoting research and development in the company, combining innovation and sustainability. They are highly automated state-of-the-art laboratories, with tests that simulate our customers' conversion processes and with a varied portfolio of analyzes available to characterize catalysts, resins, in addition to the creation of new methodologies at the service of customers and innovation teams. As a highlight, green PE, 3D printing resins and PCR products have already been developed, in addition to several polymers that are currently sold by Braskem.

Digital Transformation

The Braskem broad map to a global digital transformation has guided the implementation of innovative initiatives across the company. From advanced analytics and automation to AI and IoT applications, we are leveraging cutting-edge digital technologies and agile implementation methodologies to improve our performance and transform the way we do business.

With every action, Braskem transforms the chemical industry into a smarter, safer, more autonomous and connected sector and transforms itself into a more sustainable, innovative, adaptable and competitive company.

Meet some of
our digital products and initiatives

Intelligent Feedstock Flow

Intelligent Feedstock Flow

A digital tool that streamlines the assessment of the quality of raw materials purchased by Braskem.

At its core is a database and algorithms base that analyze the large volume of quality data the company has collected over the years in order to answer important performance and operational decision-making questions.

Without this automation and intelligence, these processes became complex and required more time.

Virtual Online Analyzer (VOA)

Virtual Online Analyzer (VOA)

It is a digital product that uses machine learning models to provide minute-by-minute insights into the quality of the resin being produced at the plant at that time.

This enables faster decision-making.

Its use contributes to the increase in the quality of Braskem products, with a direct impact on the satisfaction of our customers, and to the greater efficiency of the process as a whole.

Data Navigation

Data Navigation

A digital product that delivers real-time information on the positions of vessels (for resins and chemical products), weather forecasts and shipping news to Braskem team members and customers.

The solution also allows team members to better understand the supply and demand of container transport and be able to conduct better negotiations, leading to savings and better lead times, allowing us to achieve a new level of efficiency and service.

Product Development Solution (PDS)

Product Development Solution (PDS)

A digital solution that uses machine learning to recommend to Product Development teams the ideal formulation for post-consumer product (PCR) production.

It is an important part of the Braskem strategy to diversify its portfolio of products in the recycled market and achieve ESG commitments made to sustainable development.

Implementation entails a series of benefits for the company and promotes a potential gain of BRL 7 million annually.



An agile and collaborative approach to change management to support the issues that arise when team members are introduced to new digital tools adopted in their work routine.

The method works in any variety of organizational changes, not just those driven by new technologies.

SPEAR is based on best practices to add two very underestimated elements to this type of transition: flexibility and collaboration.

The methodology already drives the adoption of dozens of new digital products at Braskem and can be replicated to manage any organizational change, in any company.

Agile Teams

Agile Teams

To keep up with the rapid transformations of digitalization today, Braskem decided to use an agile approach to conduct our digital efforts.

The agile method enables fast iterations based on feedback, making our teams efficiently adapt to changes and produce work results quickly.

These agile teams are composed of a multidisciplinary team of Braskem members who dedicate their time to supporting digital products throughout their life cycle.



Open innovation digital tool designed to capture new ideas and pain points throughout the year, not just during innovation sprints, and combine team members seeking strategic partners to innovate.
