The polyolefin producer Braskem (São Paulo / Brazil) and the petrochemical group SCG Chemicals (Bangkok / Thailand) are considering the production of bio-based ethylene and polyethylene in Thailand. Both parties signed a letter of intent to consider joint investments in the construction of a bioethanol drainage plant. The intended location would be Map Ta Phut in Rayong Province. Should a cooperation come about, the existing capacity for bio-based polyethylene of the “I’m Green” brand could be doubled, Braskem announced.

“Sustainable solutions in the sense of a circular economy are in great demand worldwide – and we are constantly on the lookout for expansion options for the production of bio-based ‘I’m Green’ PE”, explains Roger Marchioni, Braskem Director for the Asia region. “With the planned project, we are meeting the expectations of our customers, we can fulfill our commitment to CO. By 20502– to operate neutrally, to comply better. “
