The mission of the Innovation Centre is to contribute to making Borouge the leading provider of plastics solutions in the Middle East / Asia region. Strategically located in Abu Dhabi, the vibrant capital of the United Arab Emirates, it is close to the customers in UAE and the Middle East region, and to the 2 million tonne per year Borstar PP and PE production plants in Ruwais. Equipped with state of the art tools for plastic processing and analysing, the Innovation Centre will initially focus on development of pipe, film and moulding applications. Wire and cable applications will be introduced in conjunction with the Borouge 3 project, which increases the production capacity to 4.5 million tonnes per year.
A smaller Application Centre is located at Borouge's compounding Plant in Shanghai, China. The main focus is development of compounded Automotive applications, and support to customers in the North East Asia region
