Borealis, Borouge and NOVA Chemicals are dedicated to sustainable business growth through innovation. A long-term commitment to putting the customer first generates cooperation along the entire value chain, which in turn drives both growth and innovation.
The K 2019 motto “Building tomorrow together” means working ever more closely with partners around the globe to produce superior and differentiated polyolefins-based solutions for a more sustainable future. Achieving the transformation from today’s linear system to the circular one of tomorrow will be a challenging and complex task, albeit a solvable one, requiring innovation and collaboration along the entire value chain.
Borealis, Borouge and NOVA Chemicals are members of a global family of polyolefins companies and leading providers of chemical and innovative plastics solutions. While each of the three companies operates as a legally independent entity, all benefit from the strong and stable backing of their shared owners: Austria-based OMV, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Mubadala.
Each company remains committed to deepening existing customer relationships and cultivating new ones. Success is driven by a value proposition that combines a global scale of operations, feedstock integration, proprietary technologies, and access to global markets. A shared dedication to innovation, applications development, and ongoing expansion through investment enables Borealis, Borouge and NOVA Chemicals to grow their global business.
Project STOP: frontline action to stop marine pollution
Borealis, Borouge and NOVA Chemicals also share a commitment to using their expertise and global reach to advance the circular economy of plastics. The frontline initiative Project STOP was co-founded by Borealis and SYSTEMIQ in 2017; the two companies have since been joined by Borouge and NOVA Chemicals as strategic partners.
On 23 September, the Alliance to End Plastic Waste joined Project STOP as a strategic partner. The Alliance’s three-year collaboration with Project STOP will focus on the regency of Jembrana, a new Project STOP city partnership, located on the northwest coast of Bali. The Alliance will support a feasibility study to achieve a future free of unmanaged plastic waste throughout the island and to assess how to extend the approach, as well as provide financial support and technical expertise. NOVA Chemicals is a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste.
Project STOP is helping prevent the leakage of thousands of tonnes of plastics into marine environments in Southeast Asia. Project partners work with municipal authorities in Indonesia to design, implement and scale circular economy solutions, including the establishment of effective waste collection, sorting and recycling systems.
At Borealis, the EverMinds approach generates pioneering circular solutions
Borealis welcomes the occasion of the K 2019 to showcase the many ways in which the company is making good on its commitment to bring about a circular economy of plastics. “Building tomorrow together” at the K 2019 means collaboration with partners and customers, renewed dedication to Value Creation through Innovation, and promoting increased mindfulness with regard to plastics circularity. The new EverMinds™ platform is the embodiment of this more circular mind-set. It continues to inspire novel, polyolefins-based solutions that enable plastics reuse, recycling and recovery, and promote design for recyclability.
