CAMPINAS, Brazil (ICIS)--Brazilian petrochemical producer Braskem plans to buy naphtha in Vienna, Austria, as a way to be closer to suppliers from Europe and northern Africa, a spokesperson confirmed on Friday.
About 70% of the naphtha Braskem uses comes from Petrobras. The rest comes from the Mediterranean region, mainly from northern Africa, and other countries, including Venezuela, Argentina and Mexico.
Braskem said a team will be transferred to Austria and will work for Braskem International, a company created in February 2012 for this kind of purpose.
