Abu Dhabi’s Borouge & Borealis unveil 70% recycled eco auto items

Abu Dhabi’s Borouge and Austria’s Borealis have launched new sustainable polymer car products made from up to 70% recycled materials. These innovations are the first of their kind produced at Borouge’s Compounding Manufacturing Plant in Shanghai, China.

The CEO of Borouge, Hazeem Sultan Al Suwaidi, highlighted the company’s dedication to sustainability, showcasing how their circular economy efforts are yielding tangible results. The novel polypropylene (PP) solutions, created with post-consumer recycled materials, have undergone ISO 14067 carbon footprint assessment.

These solutions offer similar performance and quality to virgin compounds while significantly reducing carbon emissions and energy consumption.

Eddie Wang, SVP at Borouge, noted the automotive industry’s increasing emphasis on sustainability and the company’s commitment to delivering innovative and eco-conscious solutions.

The first solution, with 50% PCR material, lowers the carbon footprint by 28%, making it suitable for car parts like under-body shields and bumper brackets.

The second solution, with up to 70% PCR materials, is designed for exterior components, reducing carbon footprint by 32% and striking a balance between impact strength and stiffness.

Since its inception in 2010, Borouge’s Compounding Manufacturing Plant has consistently developed high-quality compounds for the automotive sector, now boasting an annual capacity of 90,000 tonnes.
