Leaders from Braskem and Shell Catalysts & Technologies (SC&T) met at Shell’s research centre in Amsterdam recently to participate in a technical exchange. During the meeting, SC&T and Braskem agreed to extend their 15-year relationship for an additional 5 years. SC&T provides technical support and works with Braskem to improve operational performance and maintenance.

“We appreciate the long-standing relationship between SC&T and Braskem,” says Aloisio Souza Azevedo, global process manager for Braskem. “Shell is a key partner to Braskem and this relationship has brought us safety and added value to our operations. We look forward to continuing this relationship for the next 5 years and to our efforts to explore areas of collaboration and navigate together our transformation agenda.”

Braskem and SC&T have been working to define a transformation map of initiatives in order to reach targets for operational excellence and decarbonisation. A new technical services agreement will continue to help strengthen facility processes and maintenance.

“We are thrilled and humbled to announce that Braskem and SC&T agreed to build upon their strong relationship with an extended agreement,” says Diego Esposito, SC&T sales director for Latin America. “This is result of the fruitful 15-year relationship based on trust, collaboration and learning from each other. SC&T is committed to continue partnering with Braskem and to working together with them on their energy transition agenda.”
