ABOUT I'M GREENT POLYETHYLENE (PE)
Polyethylene is conventionally produced from fossil raw materials such as oil or natural gas and is found in many everyday products: food packaging, cosmetics, beverages, bags, among others. Green plastic, also known as I'm greenT Polyethylene, is a plastic made from a renewable and sustainably sourced raw material: ethanol from Brazilian sugarcane. Green also means that Braskem's I'm greenT PE plastic absorbs CO2 from the air and is recyclable. This means that your cup of yogurt, bottle of shampoo or bread packaging made from Green Plastic helps remove CO2 from the atmosphere, reducing the impact of global warming. The I'm greenT Polyethylene exhibits the same characteristics as the traditional petrochemical-based polyethylene, in application, performance, and especially in the existing recycling collection chain.
