In Canada, Braskem launched its latest concept in recycled plastic resins at a recent Sustainable Brands conference in Vancouver. The recycled resin is said to have a higher quality and a high percentage of recycled materials derived from household post-consumer thermoformed packaging made from polyethylene. Its main characteristics include resistance to stress cracking similar to that of virgin resins and tensile stress S mechanical properties that are 70% higher than the recycled resins currently used in the market. The next step is to identify partners to test the solution in finished goods (small volume thermoformed packaging), which will use the recycled resin as a raw material, according to Sustainable Brands.
“Sustainable development is one of the core pillars of Braskem’s activities and we believe it is very important to foster discussion on the topic with other companies in the industry in order to strengthen our initiatives and to see what the other large players are doing,” said Fabiana Quiroga, Head of Digital Manufacturing at Braskem. “We brought to the event our main products, concepts and programs focusing on sustainability, seeking to influence the entire chain to think the same way.”
