Braskem launches green LDPE

Brazil-based chemical firm Braskem seems to be still optimistic about the demand for its sugar-based polyethylene plastics as the company announced its expansion with a 30,000 tons/year capacity producing a new line of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) resins.

The product will be made available in the market starting in January 2014.
