Brazil leads in renewable energy production of plastics.
Braskem, Brazil's largest petrochemical company, has put into operation a 200000 ton/year 'green' ethylene plant in triunfo, Brazil, at the end of September 2010, which is the world's first plant to produce ethylene based on sugarcane derived ethanol. This ethylene is supplied to Braskem's high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) switching units in triunfo. Most of the products produced are for export, and more than 80% of the output of this device has been sold overseas‘ Green grade products can be used to produce HDPE film, HDPE blow molding, HDPE injection molding and LLDPE film. Its customers include Johnson Johnson, proctergamble and Toyota. Braskem also decided to use sugarcane derived ethanol to build a 100000 ton/year polypropylene (PP) plant, which is scheduled to be put into operation in 2013
in addition, Braskem signed a contract with Novozymes in December 2009 to establish a research partner to develop the production process of sugarcane derived PP to be confirmed. The five-year plan will carry out the development of enzyme strains. Thereafter, bra electronic high temperature creep endurance tester creep deformation measurement system: SKEM will commercialize the process‘ Green 'PP technology will be used to build PP plant, which is not based on ethanol, but from sugarcane
nowadays, PP is mainly derived from oil, but Braskem and Novozymes will develop green alternatives, which will be based on Novozymes' core fermentation technology and B, including systems engineering raskem's experience in chemical technology and thermoplastics. Partners will promote the bio based economy and make sugar a "new oil". The exposed shaft end of Novozymes should protrude from the end face of the housing. The company plans to make this technology practical by the end of 2014
