The author cites Braskem's leadership in the green polyethylene (PE) project. The author notes that the company's green polymer, a high density polyethylene (HDPE), is the result of a $5 million research project. He believes that the monomer to polymer move of Braskem is essentially the same as in the petrochemical route which leads to an identical polymer type. He considers the sugar to ethylene part of the equation that is novel.
