Global biopolymer supplier, Braskem, and bioplastics specialist, FKuR, expand their distribution agreement for Green PE. Taking immediate effect, FKuR is an official distribution partner for Braskem´s Green PE in USA and Canada. This latest development follows the distribution contract which was signed between the two partners for the exclusive distribution of Green PE in Europe, previously announced in November 2011.
As a further development, with the brand name Terralene, FKuR increases the range of applications for Green PE by offering tailor made compounds based on Braskem’s biobased polyethylene. Terralene and Green PE have the same properties and processability as conventional polyethylene and, thus, have the ability to be a drop in replacement as they can be processed on existing production lines. In addition, Terralene and Green PE are 100 % recyclable in existing polyethylene recycling streams.
