Borouge, a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, was awarded two 2010 ADNOC HSE Awards: the Environment and Sustainability categories during a ceremony held in Abu Dhabi on May 31, 2011.
An ADNOC HSE Award was granted to Borouge in the Environment category for the Borouge 2 Cracker successful start-up with environmental friendly Nitrogen cool down. Start up with Nitrogen at the world’s biggest Ethane Cracker at Borouge 2 cooled down the plant and its temperature stress sensible equipment to as low as minus 100 degree Centigrade to Hydrocarbon introduction. Subsequently, the plant start up time was greatly reduced with less overall flaring, massive reduction of CO2 emissions and associated environmental and economical benefits. This successful accomplishment set a milestone in the direction of environmentally safer operation of Ethylene plants.
