In line with the continuous innovation of its materials portfolio, Borealis is targeting new, demanding high-end applications for Borcycle™ in global key markets; particularly within household appliances, automotive components and consumer products.
As a pioneering technology, Borcycle M is ever-advancing through collaboration with value chain partners and our expertise and innovation strength in polymer technology and application.
The transition from products made from virgin polyolefins to mechanically recycled feedstock is a challenge. You can rely on our expertise and insights into advanced mechanical recycling, from performance and technical issues to product compliance.
Our industry expert supports you in a 1-on-1 conversation to discuss your challenges and provide you with the information you need.
Demo plant sorts post-consumer plastic waste and will produce ready-for-market fully formulated polymer pellets. Brand owners and converters will be able to access material for qualification and market validation in early 2021.
Our Borcycle ™ advanced mechanical recycling technology is developed in order to enhance packaging sustainability while ensuring that the increasing demands on performance and aesthetics are met, thus allowing converters and brand owners to raise the recycled content in their applications.
Borealis and MENSHEN, a leading specialist for plastic closures and packaging systems, have collaborated on a series of 10 packaging closures based on Borcycle™, an evolving recycling technology which transforms polyolefin-based waste streams into value-adding versatile solutions.
Due to their high versatility, plastics have become the leading material of our modern economy. However, only 14% of all plastic packaging is collected for recycling after use. As a result, leading brand owners and retailers have pledged to increase the amount of recycled plastics in packaging to give waste a second life.
Borealis has introduced a new platform to demonstrate its commitment towards a more circular plastic economy and inspire its partners and customers. Under the umbrella, Borealis is extending its Borcycle™ range of recycled polyolefins (rPO).
Borealis, a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers, announces the introduction of a new plastics recycling technology, Borcycle™ and new rPO compound at K 2019. Borealis also announces significant material improvements to existing Purpolen® recyclate materials.
Borealis is one of the world’s leading providers of advanced and circular polyolefin solutions and a European market leader in base chemicals, fertilizers and the mechanical recycling of plastics.
With head offices in Vienna, Austria, Borealis has 7,500 employees and operates in over 120 countries. In 2020, Borealis generated EUR 6.8 billion in sales revenue and a net profit of EUR 589 million. OMV, the Austria-based international oil and gas company, owns 75% of Borealis, while the remaining 25% is owned by a holding company of the Abu-Dhabi based Mubadala. We supply services and products to customers around the globe through Borealis and two important joint ventures: Borouge (with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, or ADNOC, based in UAE); and Baystar™ (with Total, based in the US).
