- The Mexican government opens a call in which more than 30 companies participated worldwide to win a long-term raw material contract and the construction of a petrochemical complex.
Braskem Idesa is an association created in 2010, made up of Braskem (with 75% of the share), a Brazil's leading petrochemical company in America; and Grupo Idesa (with 25% of the share), one of the main Mexican business groups. Braskem Idesa led the development and implementation of a petrochemical complex for the production of polyethylene in Coatzacoalcos, in the state of Veracruz.
The Braskem Idesa Complex represents an important advance for the Mexican petrochemical industry because it adds value to the entire production chain in the country, as well as creating opportunities for social and economic development, since the Mexican trade balance must be benefited by the significant decrease of the importation of polyethylene, in addition to the generation of employment.
Braskem Idesa participated once again in the most important plastic fair: Plastimagen 2016, where it had a presence in a space that exceeded 270 m² with a 2-level stand; which had interactive spaces for Social Commitment topics through six modules (Macro Plan for Social Investment, Biodiversity, Archaeological Findings, Occupational Health and Safety and Gender Equity), an agro-industry zone and a 3D wall of pipeline; in addition, the commercial team had the opportunity to welcome their customers in the bar area or in the boardrooms to establish profitable business relationships for the company.
On April 7, Braskem Idesa begins the production of polyethylene, with the start of one of its three production plants of said thermoplastic resin.
The company announced the production of Polyethylenes with a gradual increase until reaching the maximum production limit: one million fifty thousand tons per year.
The supply of this product to customers is made available once the resin has been guaranteed to meet the highest quality standards.
In June, Braskem Idesa held the official opening of its petrochemical complex, one of the most modern in Latin America, with the presence of Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquín Coldwell, accompanied by the Secretary of Government, Flavino Ríos Alvarado and the Director of PEMEX, José Antonio González Anaya, among other Federal, State and Municipal Government officials.
Braskem Idesa presents the photo gallery Pierre: "Feet on Earth", sponsored by Braskem Idesa, coordinated by the Pierre Verger Foundation in the assignment of rights and general supervision; Televisa Foundation in the curatorial project and contents and Museography Workshop in the museography and design project.
From March 28 to March 30, Braskem Idesa shows at Expo Plásticos: the most relevant plastic industry fair in the shoals, with a stand of 162 m2.
In August, Braskem Idesa reached the first million tons of Polyethylenes produced since its operations start-up.
