3D printers can drive economic sustainability

Like combustion engines and computers, 3D printers must be the object of a new revolution: circular economy. See how this new technology can change the world

Many scientists, economists and environmentalists agree that the linear economy system is coming to an end, and little by little, the concepts of circular economics will be more present in industries and markets. According to Gregory Unruh, of George Mason University, the most important piece of this revolution will be the 3D printer. With this technology, it will be possible to recycle materials more efficiently and decentralize the production of large industrial plants with cleaner energy consumption.

What Braskem is doing about it?

No dia 7 de novembro de 2018, a Braskem lançou globalmente um novo Posicionamento Global sobre Economia Circular. No âmbito do posicionamento, a empresa vai atuar voluntariamente para atingir diversos objetivos, entre os quais se destacam o que garante que 100% das unidades industriais da petroquímica adotem as melhores práticas para controle de pellets até 2020.

A Braskem reconhece que a gestão adequada na disposição de resíduos plásticos pós-consumo é uma preocupação global crescente, e que o material deve ser usado com responsabilidade, reutilizado, reciclado ou recuperado. Para que isto aconteça, todos os setores da sociedade e cada cidadão devem atuar juntos na evolução do consumo consciente e na gestão do ciclo de vida do plástico.
