Environmental awareness and technology as a mooto of Feiplastic 2013
One of Feiplastic's most important themes is sustainability in products and solutions. These technologies and inputs don't just surprise visitors, but also ensure Brazil's leadership in the green plastic industry. One example is the polymer created by Braskem using sugarcane ethanol and that significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The product can be used to make personal hygiene and beauty packaging, food packaging, bags, trash bags and toys.
Brakem's Green Polyethylene (PE) is considered a world benchmark in innovation. The largest petrochemical company in the Americas, the company will be at the expo to launch the material that made Brazil the world's largest producer of bi-polymers. For every tonne of Green Polyethylene produced, up to 2.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide are sequestered. Braskem has already helped reduce annual emissions by more than 750 thousand tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of planting and maintaining more than 5 million trees each year.
