Successful Partnership between TECNARO and BRASKEM using Green PE
Based on the contract closed in 2011 several TECNARO compounds including Green PE from BRASKEM have been successfully introduced to the market
"Objective of the cooperation is the development of new applications in order to increase the product portfolio made from Green PE" says Claudia Cappra, Commercial Manager of BRASKEM.
TECNARO was selected by BRASKEM to increase the penetration of customized compound solutions based on Green PE in the European market. "We are pleased to cooperate with BRASKEM and hereby realize an important step in the further exploration of the Brazilian and German market", says Dr. Lars Ziegler, Director R&D of TECNARO.
Once again, this cooperation shows the long-term relation of TECNARO with Brazil. TECNARO keeps a sales representation in Sao Paulo since 2001. In 2005 a comprehensive training program was introduced focusing on the utilization of renewable resources in the plastics industry. This was elaborated and implemented by TECNARO within Private Public Partnership (PPP) Projects supported by BMZ/Sequa gGmbH and in cooperation with the Brazilian center for research and education SENAI CIMATEC and other partners. In addition, new biomaterials have been developed and the awareness regarding bioplastics has been increased in Brazil.
BRASKEM is the world largest producer of thermoplastic polymers in America. With 35 industrial plants located in Brazil, the US and Germany the company produces more than 16 million tons of thermoplastic polymers and other petrochemical products.
