Braskem ensures its leadership relying on high quality provided by Zeppelin Systems Latin America



Braskem is a most important global player for thermoplastic resins (polypropylene, polyethylene and PVC) and other chemical products. Braskem built partnerships with its clients in more than 70 countries. In 36 industrial plants located in Brazil, USA and Germany, Braskem produces a total of 16 million tons of products.

It is Braskem’s philosophy to develop successful partnerships granting added value and competitive products to their clients. Furthermore, Braskem offers a personalized service and certified high quality products, technical assistance before and after sales, specialized logistics and the opportunity for tests and development of specific products.

Braskem is the absolute world leader in the production of biopolymers. In 2010, the company placed on the market “green polyethylene”, made of renewable raw material, i.e. from ethanol, extracted from sugar cane.

This is a unique worldwide initiative due to the volumes involved and because of the excellent quality attained.

Based on Zeppelin Systems LA’s technology, the units of Brakem in Camaçari and Triunfo updated their heat exchangers in order to increase the reliability of their processes.
