15 students participated in the Tour Your Future Event at Braskem Pittsburgh yesterday, virtually! Students learned what it’s like to be a female scientist, engineer and leader at Braskem – a global producer of thermoplastic resins (polymers/plastics) and basic petrochemicals with 40 plants worldwide and around 8,000 team members. In the US, Braskem is the largest producer of polypropylene plastic.
During the event, OC students learned about how Braskem’s team members work together to create new, sustainable solutions within the plastics industry. They had the opportunity to ask questions to their female panel of experts, virtually tour their processing and analytical labs, learn about the chemistry, manufacturing and application of plastics, and play an interactive sustainability game!
Thank you Braskem for a great virtual event!
