SAO PAULO, BRAZIL: Braskem has entered into a partnership with A Schulman Inc to produce and market a new green polyethylene application: a solution for the rotomolding process.

A Schulman will bring this solution to the market by featuring the "I'm greenTM" seal, which indicates its helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
