Low impact of carbon emission
Innovation, technology and sustainability
The green polyethylene is a plastic resin produced from the sugarcane ethanol, a renewable raw material, whilst the traditional polyethylene is produced from fossil sources, such as oil or natural gas. For this reason, the green polyethylene captures and fixes the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during its production process, helping to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.
The green polyethylene maintains the same properties, performance and versatility applications of the traditional polyethylene (fossil origin) and it is recyclable within the same recycling chain of the traditional polyethylene.

Brazil has a total available arable land estimated at 152.5 million hectares or 17.9% of the territory, of which 62.5 million hectares or 7.3% of the territory is made up of the arable land already used. According to Eleusio Freire, there is a potential for expansion of agriculture, especially in the Cerrado region, corresponding to 90 million hectares or 10.5% of the territory, corresponding to available arable land and not yet used.
These data show that the advancement of agriculture in Brazil does not need to occupy reforestation, nor does it deforest areas for soybean or any other crop. Using degraded areas or intensifying cultivation in areas already available for agriculture would already be enough to considerably expand agriculture in Brazil.
