What Braskem is doing about it?
On November 7th, 2018, Braskem launched its new Worldwide Positioning on Circular Economy. With regard to its positioning, the company will voluntarily work to reach several different goals, one of them being to guarantee that 100% of its petrochemical plants will adopt the best pellet control practices by 2020.
Braskem acknowledges that adequate management of the disposal of post-consumption plastic waste is an increasing global concern, and that the material must be used with responsibility, reused, recycled or reclaimed. To do so, all sectors of society and every citizen must work together to advance conscious consumption and plastic life cycle management.
