Borouge, the leading provider of value creating plastics solutions announced that it has initiated the feasibility study for Borouge 3: a further expansion of its polyolefin operations in Abu Dhabi to add approximately 2.5 million tonnes per year of capacity by end of 2014.

The Borouge 3 study will explore options to take advantage of additional feedstock becoming available from planned upstream ADNOC expansions to expand both polyethylene and polypropylene production capacities beyond the current Borouge 2 Project which is under construction and on target for start up in 2010. Includes in the Borouge 3 development scheme is a low density polyethylene unit to produce high performance material for wire and cable applications.
