Braskem Expands Propylene Import Capability for New Jersey Polypropylene Plant
January 20, 2022


Americas Polyolefin producer Braskem and Repauno Port & Rail Terminal confirmed on Thursday that they have completed the first Propylene import in more than a decade to the US East Coast in New Jersey.

The vessel arrived at Repauno's multi-use port terminal facility for energy products in Gibbstown, New Jersey, located on a 1,600-acre site along the Delaware River with truck and rail access. Additionally, the site features a multi-purpose dock with 40-foot draft, capable of safely handling a wide variety of products and available acreage with build-to-suit logistical solutions available for development.

The partnership with Repauno is part of Braskem's strategic initiative to further enhance its feedstock optionality to supply Propylene to its 415,000 mt/yr Polypropylene (PP) manufacturing facility in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania. The partnership also provides Braskem with increased flexibility to import Propylene when supply disruptions and/or competitive arbitrage opportunities emerge.
