Nov. 6, 2023
Raw material is the first bio-attributed chemical product produced by Braskem using the ISCC-certified mass-balance approach.

Brazilian petrochemical company Braskem said Nov. 6 it will supply bio-attributed ethylene from renewable sources to Indorama Ventures IOD - Oxiteno.

Oxiteno will use bio-attributed ethylene, certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification, or ISCC, to create new, more sustainable solutions, Braskem said.

This raw material is the first bio-attributed chemical product produced by Braskem using the certified mass-balance approach. The concept co-processes traditional carbon sources with recycled or renewable components to develop chemical solutions with a sustainability attribute, maintaining properties and quality compared to conventional solutions, according to Braskem.

"Braskem and Oxiteno have aligned sustainability initiatives and this partnership is of great importance for the growth strategy of both, being one more step for the industry towards a sustainable future,” said Marlisa Reche chemicals - olefins and aromatics business director at Braskem. “The initiative should define new paths for sustainability in our petrochemical sector.”
