With very little options for land, Braskem needed a solution for improving rail access and facilitating additional rail capacity to optimize their supply chain & distribution operations at their Marcus Hook plant.
D2 collaborated with local, regional, and state authorities on the project. The project was completed timely and was on-line to support Braskem’s efforts in producing polypropylene used to make non-woven fabric for PPE such as N95 masks, hospital gowns and hoods, hair nets and sanitary wipes; Items in high demand during the 2020 COVID pandemic.
