Locally developed portfolio covers materials to enhance rigid and fl exible packaging

Borouge highlighted at ArabPlast its extensive portfolio of locally developed plastics solutions, raising awareness of its innovations for infrastructure, energy, packaging, healthcare, and agriculture.

“Our innovative solutions have been carefully designed and engineered to open new opportunities for the entire value chain,” said Hazeem Sultan Al Suwaidi, senior vicepresident Middle East Africa and Exports at Borouge.

“The unique properties of Borouge’s pellets continue to empower customers of all sizes and underscores the UAE’s growing importance as a regional petrochemical powerhouse that exports its products to over 50 countries.

“We have the right people, facilities, knowhow and innovation capabilities to contribute significantly to the growing demand for quality plastics across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia and increase our contribution to the UAE economy, now and in the future.”

Having started with a single 450,000 tonnes/year facility in Ruwais in 2001, the company now has the world’s largest integrated polyolefin complex with a production capacity of 4.5 million tonnes of differentiated polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) pellets.

“Many of our unique polymer grades have also resulted from our Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi, with more than 15% of annual sales volume being derived directly from products developed at the Centre,” added Al Suwaidi.

Borouge utilises proprietary technologies such as Borstar, Borlink, and Borstar Nucleation Technology (BNT). Borouge’s solutions are recognised for attributes including weight reduction, higher productivity, energy savings, enhanced functionality, improved safety, durability, aesthetic performance, recyclability, and low carbon footprint.

Borouge provides an advanced range of packaging solutions to increase quality, reduce costs, and improve the sustainability of its operations. These use technologies such as Borstar and BNT for high-performance flexible and rigid packaging applications with unique property profiles. Beyond simple product protection, Borouge’s packaging solutions add measurable value to the end product.

Borouge’s plastics solutions play a positive role in people’s lives through addressing major global challenges such as climate change, access to water and sanitation, food protection, energy conservation, healthcare and waste management.
