Borouge partnered recycling firm Plaspulp Union

June 11/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Borouge has partnered with Singapore-based recycling firm Plaspulp Union to further develop and commercialize new packaging applications using recycled materials, said the UAE-based company.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) marks Borouge's first foray into the recycling market in Southeast Asia, the company said in a statement. "Borouge is expected to develop more partnerships with other processing companies in the coming months," it said.

Borouge has already successfully tested the use of Plaspulp Union recycled materials in flexible packaging such as laminate and shipping packaging.

The MOU with Plaspulp Union will add to the existing partnerships Borouge has established with two other recycling companies in China to increase the volume of recycled materials in its portfolio and jointly develop innovative new solutions for packaging applications.

As per MRC, Borouge, a joint venture between Borealis and Abu Dhabi National Oil company, plans to complete the construction of a fifth polypropylene (PP5) plant in Ruweis in 2021. The PP5 plant is under construction and will begin operations in mid-2021. This plant with a capacity of 450,000 tonnes of PP per year will be fully commissioned in 2022.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's PP deliveries to the Russian market were 523,900 tonnes in January-April 2021, up by 55% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas shipments of PP random copolymers decreased.
