Braskem continues investing in the development of its biopolymers in Asia and just started its Tokyo Representative Office


Braskem announces the opening of its Representative Office in Tokyo, being Japan one of the key markets for Braskem’s I’m green™ bio-based Polyethylene (PE). Having its own staff on the ground marks Braskem’s continuous commitment to the Japanese market and to further develop the biopolymer solutions based on renewable feedstock.

For over 15 years, Braskem has provided biopolymers to the Japanese market as part of its sustainable solutions, in line with the country's goals to become a circular low carbon economy.

Braskem’s biopolymer I’m green™ bio-based Polyethylene (PE) delivers an important contribution to a carbon-neutral society and mitigation of climate change as the product has a negative carbon footprint, from the sugar cane crop to the polymer production, in a process that removes CO2 from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and stores the carbon in the biopolymer that can be further mechanically or chemically recycled.

Braskem recently increased the production capacity of biopolymers in Brazil by 30% and has established an JV with SCGChemicals to develop a project in Thailand to increase the regional availability of I’m green™ bio-based Polyethylene (PE) in Asia.

Walmir Soller, VP of Braskem for Europe & Asia and Global Leader for the I’m green™ bio-based PE business said: “We are always looking for opportunities to expand the I’m green™ bio-based PE reach and deliver low-carbon alternatives to our customers, aligned with the increasing societal demand for sustainable solutions. Our Representative office in Japan will be Braskem’s ambassador to work together with local stakeholders, and advocate for the development of the low carbon solutions. We want to be an active partner in Japan’s journey towards net zero, contributing with our experience and track record in producing plastics from sustainably sourced renewable feedstock.“

I’m green™ bio-based Polyethylene is a plastic made from sugar cane ethanol, sourced according to a responsible sourcing protocol that encompasses requirements in terms of biodiversity, labor rights, social responsibility and best agricultural practices. I’m green™ bio-based PE is used in a variety of products, including packaging for food and beverages, personal and home care products, toys, houseware, and safety equipment.
