Braskem presents intelligent packaging solutions at Interpack 2017


The Company showcases innovations and reaffirms its commitment to an intelligent packaging future

Braskem, the largest thermoplastic resins producer in the Americas, will take part in Interpack, in Düsseldorf, Germany, from May 4 to 10, at stand G15 (Hall 9). At the event, the company will present new applications for its I’m green™ Green Plastic packaging, including coffee packaging for The Netherlands’ Peeze as well as packaging for the personal care segment, for Germany’s Speick and Italy’s L’Erbolario. It will also show Braskem Amppleo, a polypropylene resin developed for the production of high performance foams, and display research work and advances made in intelligent packaging technology.

I’m green™ Green Polyethylene is produced from sugar cane, a renewable source, and contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, as it captures carbonic gas during its productive process. A recent update of a Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) study on Green Plastic from the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research GmbH (IFEU), focusing on the agricultural phase, points to process improvements and a reduction in environmental impact. This has allowed a higher level of carbon capture to be registered compared to previously measured results.

“Our Green Plastic is the result of a research and development study involving a variety of people and investment of around US$ 300 million. This biopolymer is currently exported to Europe, the US, Asia, Africa and South America and is used in more than 150 brands worldwide. For Braskem, taking part in the world’s foremost packaging fair is an opportunity to reinforce our global presence,” affirms Gustavo Sergi, head of Renewal Chemicals Business at Braskem.

High technology resin for foam production

Braskem will showcase Amppleo, a high-melt-strength polypropylene resin, during Interpack 2017. This HMS-PP resin has been developed for versatile and high-performance foam applications in the packaging, automotive and industrial markets.

The resin can withstand temperatures of up to 130°C without deforming and enables the production of foams for a wide range of applications within a broad density range, from 30 to 300 kilograms per cubic meter. It enables products to be made with a lighter weight than those made using other materials and offers excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. The material is also 100% recyclable.

Research into intelligent packaging

Another of the fair’s highlights will be Braskem’s advances in research into intelligent packaging, which can inform the consumer, via colour changes, of the quality and state of conservation of various products, from food to cosmetics. Braskem is developing this technology in partnership with the USA’s Clemson University and Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul Federal University (UFRGS).

Partnerships which promote innovation

Also available on Braskem’s stand at Interpack will be:

- Polypropylene Cups produced in partnership with packaging company Gizeh, and Green Plastic produced in partnership with Finnish company Stora Enso.

- Information on a partnership between Braskem and Made In Space - a US company which is a leader in the development of 3D printers for NASA - for the supply of Green Plastic for the manufacture of tools and parts for the International Space Station (ISS).

- The coffee served on the stand is produced by Peeze, the only coffee processor in The Netherlands to supply coffee which is 100% certified, and which uses packaging made with I’m green™ Green Plastic. This sustainable packaging has resulted from a partnership announced between the companies in October 2016 and which has allowed Peeze to significantly reduce its carbon footprint: for each kilo of Green Polyethylene used to package its coffee, more than 4.5 kg of CO2 are captured from the atmosphere.

About us

Company details

Created in August 2002 by the integration of six companies from Odebrecht Group and the Mariani Group, Braskem is currently the largest producer of thermoplastic resins in the Americas, the world leader in the production of biopolymer and the largest producer of polypropylene in the United States. Its production focuses on polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyvinylchloride (PVC) resins, in addition to basic chemical inputs such as ethylene, propylene, butadiene, benzene, toluene, chlorine, soda, and solvents, among others. Together, they make up one of the most comprehensive portfolios in the industry by also including the green polyethylene produced from the sugarcane ethanol, from 100% renewable sources.

Braskem is part of the chemical and petrochemical industry, which has a significant share in several supply chains and is essential for economic development. In this context, chemistry and plastics contribute to creating sustainable solutions to improve the lives of people in sectors such as housing, food, and mobility.

Business model
Braskem is the only integrated petrochemical company for the first and second generation of thermoplastic resins in Brazil. This translates into competitive advantages, such as production scale and operational efficiency.

The first generation produces basic petrochemicals such as ethylene and propylene from naphtha, natural gas, and ethane. These compounds are crucial to the second generation, which involves the production of thermoplastic resins (PE, PP, and PVC), later used by the third-generation processors.
