On November 20, 2009, Borealis AG, Vienna, Austria, has inaugurated its international Innovation Headquarters in Linz, Austria. This event is the culmination of approximately one and a half years of construction and a total investment volume of EUR 50 million. About 350 international Borealis employees from over 30 countries, working in research and product development as well as in marketing and sales, are developing plastic materials of the future for Borealis’ global customers and housed in the Innovation Headquarters. 100 new employees in research and development complement the existing approx. 1,100 employees who are currently working for Borealis in Linz.

The Innovation Headquarters comprise an application hall which accomodates state-of-the-art equipment for processing plastics in applications such as pipe, film and injection moulding, as well as the relevant analysis and laboratory equipment. Furthermore, a new high-tech polymerisation laboratory has been built adjacent to the application hall. This is being used to produce batch samples of new grades that are specifically tailored to the customer’s needs. With this proximity, samples can be tested and analysed in the adjoining labs before being produced on a larger scale in pilot or production plants.

In addition to the international Innovation Headquarters in Linz Borealis operates innovation centers in Stenungsund, Sweden, and Porvoo, Finland. A new innovation center is currently being built in Abu Dhabi by Borealis’ joint venture Borouge.
