Braskem produces certified HDPE made from 100% renewable feedstock

18-Jan-08
Braskem has produced the first internationally certified polyethylene made from sugar cane ethanol. Brazil based Braskem claims that this is the first of its kind certified polyethylene. The polymer was certified by US based Beta Analytic laboratory as containing 100% renewable raw materials. Development of the HDPE can be attributed to efforts of a US$ 5mln research and development project which included a pilot unit for the production of ethane from renewable feedstock at the company's technology and innovation centre. A plant with a capacity of upto 200,000 tpa has been planned for start-up in late 2009.
