(Braskem) -- The green plastic produced by Braskem has recently received the highest certification for renewable products from Vincotte. The Belgium certification association is one of the world's main references in this type of evaluation.
Samples of the HDPE and LLDPE families were evaluated, with the entire Green PE line receiving four-star certifications, which is the highest quality rating conferred by Vincotte. Braskem's Green PE is now authorized to use the 'Ok Biobased' seal, an international identification granted by the certification association to products made from proven renewable sources.
For Braskem, the certification confirms the international recognition of the renewable content of Green PE, increasing its credibility in the market and value creation in the relationship with Clients.
Green plastic began to be produced on an industrial scale in September 2010, with the inauguration of the plant that produces its raw material - ethanol-based ethylene - in the city of Triunfo, Rio Grande do Sul state. Green PE was developed by Braskem with the aim of being totally recyclable and reusable.
