Borealis, Borouge and NOVA Chemicals are members of a global family of polyolefins companies and leading providers of chemical and innovative plastics solutions.

Borealis welcomes the occasion of K 2019 to showcase the many ways in which the company is driving the circular economy of plastics. The motto “Building tomorrow together” means collaboration with partners and customers, renewed dedication to Value Creation through Innovation, and promoting increased mindfulness with regard to plastics circularity.

Driving tomorrow with innovation

Borealis and Borouge are supporting the global automotive industry by engineering lighter weight, high-performance solutions for a growing range of automotive parts.

Taking centre stage at the joint K 2019 stand is the NIO ES8. The flagship model of the successful Chinese electric vehicle maker NIO unites top material performance and sleek design; numerous interior and exterior parts have been produced using innovative Daplen and Fibremod compounds.

Other automotive highlights at the K 2019 include the launch of the next generation of Fibremod Carbon solutions based on second-use carbon fibre. Two new low-density material solutions, Fibremod CG210SY and Fibremod CD211SY, offer even better surface aesthetics and mechanical properties.

Introducing Borcycle, an ever-evolving recycling technology

Combining state-of-the-art technology with profound Borealis polymer expertise, Borcycle transforms plastic waste streams into value-adding, versatile recycled polyolefins (rPO).

It expands the company’s existing virgin polyolefins portfolio with pioneering circular solutions for a wide range of sophisticated applications. The first of several new rPO compound launches is Borcycle MF1981SY, containing over 80% recycled material and designed for use in household appliances.

Bosch vacuum cleaner parts made with this new compound are on display at the company stand at K 2019. Existing post-consumer recyclate (PCR) grades currently marketed as Daplen, including those used for automotive applications, will also rebranded as Borcycle.


Pilot applications of Borcycle include several parts of a Bosch vacuum cleaner.

Borealis and Neste begin strategic co-operation


The cooperation of Borealis and Neste will enable Borealis to start using Neste’s 100% renewable propane produced with Neste’s proprietary NEXBTL technology as renewable feedstock at its facilities in Kallo and Beringen, Belgium, starting end of 2019.

Borealis’ unique propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and polypropylene (PP) plant set-up in Kallo will enable the company to start offering bio-based propylene and consequently bio-based PP in which renewable content can be physically verified and measured.

Novel circular solutions for flexible consumer packaging

Borealis, Borouge, and Henkel have collaborated on the development of novel and highly circular flexible packaging solutions. Two stand-up pouches combine virgin polyethylene (PE) and high amounts of PCR.

These solutions offer even better packaging circularity while maintaining excellent shelf appeal. One pouch developed in the course of this value chain cooperation contains 30% Ecoplast-produced PCR, and is showcased at the joint K 2019 stand.

Mono-material solutions for demanding consumer packaging applications

In collaboration with several value chain partners, Borealis and Borouge have developed a series of new, mono-material pouch solutions based on PE and PP which expand the range of more sustainable options for the flexible packaging industry.

Designed specifically for recyclability, the new stand-up pouches are suitable for the most demanding consumer packaging applications. Several of the pouches, including one containing 35% PCR, are on display at the K stand.

Launching new BorPure designed for flip-top cap applications

Borealis announced the commercial launch of BorPure RF777MO as well. Based on the proprietary Borstar Nucleation Technology, this new resin fulfils value chain demand for high-quality solutions offering excellent organoleptics.

As next generation random polypropylene (PP), BorPure RF777MO has been designed for use in flip-top caps, which is a growing caps and closures market segment.

Hinged caps made using this new resin are especially robust and, as a mono-material solution, 100 % recyclable. For certain caps applications, this resin offers proven cycle time reductions of more than 10 % thanks to fast crystallisation behavior.

Borouge: Continuous development on mono-material solutions

Meanwhile, Borouge continues to work on delivering new mono-material solutions. It recently introduced a new grade of bimodal HDPE called FB5600, based on the Borstar technology platform. It helps the packaging industry advance its sustainability and circular economy commitments.

FB5600’s high stiffness enables down-gauging of films which drives cost reduction and a lower environmental footprint, while its strength and barrier properties helps to reduce food waste. It has proven to be a key component of PE/PE laminates, enabling recyclability.

NOVA Chemicals: Accelerating solutions for a circular plastics economy

At K 2019, NOVA Chemicals is unveiling three new products and technologies that support that mission by helping converters and brand owners advance the development of a circular plastics economy:

  • BONFIRE Film Development Platform version 4.0 - the newest version of the BONFIRE platform. The platform uses predictive modelling and other virtual tools to enable film and packaging manufacturers to speed development of downgauged and recyclable multi-layer film structures.
  • Recycle-Ready Resins - NOVA Chemicals is offering a new suite of octene and butene polyethylene (PE) resins designed to retain their physical, processability and optical properties after mechanical recycling.
  • VPs412 Sealant Resin - VPs412 is the newest addition to the company’s family of high-performance sealant resins. It delivers an unbeatable combination of optics, toughness and processability benefits, delivering seal integrity that helps extend shelf life and reduce food waste.

VPs412 delivers seal integrity that helps extend shelf life and reduce food waste.
