BOROUGE INNOVATION CENTRE
Innovation centre, Abu Dhabi
In November 2015 H.H. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan inaugurated our state-of-the-art Innovation Centre in Sas Al Nakhl in Abu Dhabi, which serves as a hub of innovation in the field of polymer development and application technology. With a focus on Research and Development (R&D), our scientists, researchers, engineers and lab technicians join forces to use the advanced technologies, equipment and testing machines across the laboratory to ensure our products are providing the best value to our customers.
We organise visits by academic institutions, universities and organisations raising awareness about the importance of plastics and polymer science and developing the future talent in this growing field. We have contributed to over 500 innovative patents that is over 30% of the total patents developed in the UAE, while around 20% of the Borouge sales volume is generated from new products developed in the centre.
