Borouge discloses current and future expansion projects and other plastics innovations at Arabplas 2019
Borouge is set to unveil its current and future expansion projects and re-emphasise its partnerships that contribute to supporting the local industry while participating as a Strategic Partner at ArabPlast 2019, the largest plastics, petrochemicals and rubber industry trade show in the MENA region being held in Dubai from 5-8 January 2019.
His Excellency Dr Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, UAE Minister of Infrastructure Development, inaugurated ArabPlast 2019 and visited Borouge’s stand where he met with the company’s leadership and teams and was introduced to Borouge’s solutions on display and how they add value to business as well as to society.
During the event, Borouge will introduce visitors and customers to its portfolio of differentiated polyolefin solutions for infrastructure, packaging, energy, agriculture and healthcare applications. The company will highlight its commitment to plastics sustainability and environment protection, demonstrate its enhanced innovation capabilities to provide creative solutions to key industry segments and shed light on its significant contribution to the UAE’s economy and society.
Having recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, Borouge will demonstrate its impressive journey of operational excellence and remarkable growth and innovation which enabled the company to strengthen its leading position as a provider of creative plastics solutions that push boundaries, drive performance and create value for businesses and communities in the UAE and around the world.
“ArabPlast provides Borouge with an opportunity to underline its strong contribution to the economic development of the UAE and to supporting Abu Dhabi to become a centre of global petrochemical innovation, promoting the ‘Made in UAE’ and addressing the market requirements with our plastics solutions,” said Ahmed Omar Abdulla, CEO of Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge). “Our participation at ArabPlast comes on the same time as we celebrate our 20th anniversary, enhance our business partnerships and recognise our significant growth by expanding our capacity 10 times over the past 20 years turning our Ruwais production site into the world’s largest integrated polyolefin complex.”
Supporting in-country value
Borouge’s innovative solutions and its new expansion projects in Ruwais enable Borouge to reinforce its In-Country Value (ICV) through its strategic partnerships with local industry leaders and manufacturers and by generating new opportunities for businesses and revenues for local companies in the UAE. Borouge’s ICV also contributes to creating new employment opportunities for UAE National talents who can be attracted to the industry to add value to the whole value chain.
Driven by its creativity and the advanced technologies it uses, Borouge develops innovative polymer solutions that not only meet the needs of customers, but also create value to their businesses. With the efforts of its creative UAE and international researchers and engineers working at the Borouge Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi and the Application Centre in Shanghai, Borouge succeeded in obtaining almost 250 patents out of around 650 patents which the Company has filed at the World Intellectual Property Organisation database. More than 20% of Borouge’s annual sales volume is now derived from new products developed at the Centre.
Borouge’s 2021 Sustainability Goals has largely contributed to increasing the company’s focus on specific drivers of performance and further commitment to its long term social responsibility, environmental stewardship and economic growth in the UAE in line with the UAE's Vision 2021. Along with its strong commitment to support the 3Rs concept of Reducing, Reusing and Recycling plastics, Borouge advocates adopting the plastics circular economy as an innovative driving force to ensure plastics sustainability, so plastics never end up in oceans or landfills, but rather be recycled to have a second chance of life.
