Shell and Braskem partner for bio-attributed propylene

Polypropylene manufactured from bio-attributed and bio-circular propylene will support growing consumer demand for more sustainable plastics.

Shell Chemicals recently started to supply Braskem with bio-attributed and bio-circular propylene feedstocks, based on a mass balance approach and independently certified by a third party. Braskem will utilize such feedstocks for the manufacture of bio-attributed and bio-circular polypropylene enabling more sustainable options for growing consumer demand in the packaging, film, automotive, and consumer goods markets.

“Shell is proud to be working with Braskem to supply the bio-attributed and bio-circular feedstocks that go into the everyday products that support modern life. This deal further illustrates how Shell Chemicals is growing its portfolio of sustainable chemicals and, by using bio-attributed and bio-circular feedstocks, Shell is progressing its strategy to lower greenhouse gas emissions from its operations and to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050,” said Sean Clarry, Shell Chemicals’ Senior Vice President Commercial.

Contributing to a circular economy

Shell is replacing hydrocarbon feedstock with a bio-attributed and bio-circular feedstock in its propylene product, which has the potential to reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to a circular economy.

The recent collaboration between Shell and Braskem in Europe, aimed at enhancing the utilization of circular content in Braskem’s polypropylene production, reinforces Braskem’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality and advancing its circular economy goals by 2050. Shell has also set a target to reduce absolute emissions by 50% by 2030, compared to 2016 levels on a net basis. This covers all emissions in Scope 1, which come directly from its operations, and in Scope 2, from the energy Shell buys to run its operations, under its operational control.
