Presenting alongside other UAE companies based in Singapore at the OPL event with the theme of “Sustainability & Net Zero Carbon Emissions”, Mr Hoefling highlighted how Borouge plays a key role as a responsible and sustainable petrochemical company through his presentation titled:
Circularity from a Leading Polyolefin Producer’s Perspective.
