Braskem announces studies in chemical recycling

Braskem announces new partnerships for the development of chemical recycling, with a focus on transforming post-consumer plastics, such as grocery bags and packaging films for snacks and cookies, once again into chemical products that can be used by various different value chains and will benefit the general public.

Braskem, the recognized leader in innovation with a successful record in renewable chemicals, has applied its knowledge and commitment once again to move the industry towards the circular economy.

The partnerships seek to further research into technologies that can transform plastics that are more difficult to be recycled mechanically into new chemical products. The research is being conducted in partnership with the Polymer Engineering Laboratory (EngePol) at the Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute of Graduate Studies and Research in Engineering of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (COPPE/UFRJ), the SENAI Institute for Innovation in Biosynthetics (SENAI CETIQT) and Cetrel (an environmental service company that started its activities in 1978 jointly with manufacturers located in the Camaçari Petrochemical Complex).
