High profile project requires effective monitoring Compass 6000™ was selected for monitoring this state-of-the-art plant when it was commissioned in 2010. Braskem, the largest petrochemical producer in the Americas and the fifth largest in the world by production capacity, built the green ethylene plant in the existing Triunfo petrochemical complex in the Rio Grande do Sul state in Brazil.
“Green” ethylene is derived from ethanol that is produced from the renewable source sugarcane, instead of from a fossil oil derivative. It is the largest green ethylene plant in the world, producing 200k tons/yr.
Brüel & Kjær Vibro has had a long-term partnership with raskem/Copesul since 1997.
In addition to the green ethylene plant, there are over 300 machines monitored at the Naphtha fed olefin plants, and almost 2000 machines monitored in the downstream polyethylene and polypropylene plants.
