Packaging Centre of Excellence (PCoE)
Borouge Innovation Centre has established the Packaging Centre of Excellence (PCoE) to drive a circular economy and encourage cross-value chain collaboration. PCoE in close collaboration with the Circular Economy Team based in Singapore, has contributed to the technical development, evaluation and screening of recycled PE and PP from recycling partners. The team developed various proof of concept for Post-consumer Recyclates (PCR) containing packaging solutions, as well as fully recyclable mono-material solutions based on Borouge products. For sustainable packaging applications, Borouge collaborates with its value chain partners to develop and commercialise mono-material laminates suitable for everyday use.
Borouge created an ultra-high stiffness, high-density polyethylene with a formulation designed for lamitubes to enable a mono-material flexible packaging solution for toothpaste tubes, enabling these tubes to be recycled rather than ending up as plastic waste. The advancement of mono-material packaging with quality performance and functionality is a major breakthrough for advancing circularity.
