Most people probably don’t realize the presence of Braskem in their lives. But just a quick look at one’s house, car or office is enough to find plastic objects - many of them made of resins produced by Braskem - that are essential for the daily comfort and convenience of modern life. Items such as hairbrushes, toothbrushes, baby bottles, household utensils, rucksacks, packaging, auto parts, computer parts, bags, wires, cables, window/door frames, among others, are made of thermoplastic resins such as polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC, on which the company’s businesses are focused. Braskem is the largest petrochemical company in the Americas and the world’s third largest producer of polypropylene, and it considers competitiveness and technology autonomy, combined with the commitment to promote the sustainable development, as its strategy bases.
