Braskem inaugurates green ethylene plant

15-Sep-10
Braskem inaugurated today operations of its green ethylene plant, taking an important step forward in its strategy of becoming the global leader in sustainable chemicals. The ethylene was specified approximately 12 hours later, which means that it presents adequate conditions for conversion into green polyethylene (green plastic). The plant is the largest industrial-scale operation in the world producing ethylene made from 100% renewable raw materials, i.e., sugarcane. The project was conceived and installed in less than two years, which proved extremely challenging and drew on Braskem’s proprietary technology. Located at the Triunfo Petrochemical Complex in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, the plant will produce 200,000 tons of green ethylene, which will be transformed into an equivalent volume of green plastic. The plant will be officially inaugurated on Sept. 24.
