Green PE

Green PE, a novel form of polyethylene, is a breakthrough packaging material derived from sugar cane, a renewable resource. This innovative approach to packaging production is not only in line with environmental sustainability, but also matches the properties of traditional petroleum-based polyethylene. Importantly, Green PE is 100% recyclable, providing an environmentally friendly alternative without compromising on functionality.


  • The production of Green PE begins with the harvesting of sugar cane, which is a sustainable source for ethanol production.
  • The ethanol obtained is dehydrated to produce ethylene, which is then polymerized into polyethylene.
  • In contrast to conventional PE production, which uses fossil fuels, the process for Green PE is based on renewable sources, resulting in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • Green PE is subject to strict quality controls to ensure that it meets industry performance requirements.

Green polyethylene (Green PE) is used in a wide variety of industries due to its environmentally friendly properties and versatility. Key applications include:

  • Packaging: Green PE is extensively used in the production of various packaging materials. These include food packaging, shopping bags and other similar packaging solutions.
  • Agriculture: In the agricultural sector, Green PE is used in the production of mulch films and for use in irrigation systems, benefiting from its durability and adaptability.
  • Consumer Goods: Green PE plays an important role in the manufacture of household products such as garbage bags, bottles and containers, providing a sustainable alternative to traditional plastics.
  • Automotive industry: Due to its robustness and resilience, Green PE is increasingly being used in the automotive industry to manufacture various parts and components.

Green PE vs. conventional PE: the advantages at a glance

  • Reduction of dependence on fossil fuels: The production of Green PE reduces the need for petroleum, a non-renewable resource.
  • Positive CO2 balance: The use of sugar cane in production leads to a net absorption of CO2, as the plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow.
  • Promoting sustainable agriculture: Growing sugar cane for Green PE supports sustainable agricultural practices.

Economic efficiency:

  • Competitive costs: Although Green PE comes from renewable sources, it is price competitive with conventional PE.
  • Reduction of environmental regulations: Companies that use Green PE can benefit from reduced environmental regulations and possibly tax benefits.

Green PE represents a significant step towards more sustainable plastics production. With its environmentally friendly properties, its ability to replace fossil fuels and its wide range of applications, it offers companies and consumers a realistic alternative to conventional plastics. At a time when sustainability is becoming increasingly important, Green PE is an attractive option for companies that want to be environmentally conscious while pursuing their economic goals.
