Reduced Carbon Footprint

Borealis Launches Portfolio of Circular Polyolefins

The non fossil fuel-based portfolio offers same high quality and performance for applications in all industries.

Circular polyolefin products called Bornewables from Borealis, Vienna, Austria, produced with renewable feedstock derived entirely from waste and residue streams offer the same material performance as virgin polyolefins, yet with a reduced carbon footprint. As an important extension of the existing range of polyolefins, the Bornewables may be used for any number of applications in all industries. Using these innovative and more circular products will help enable customers to meet their own sustainability targets while maintaining existing quality standards.

Accelerating the Move to Plastics Circularity

The introduction of the Bornewables portfolio is another example of the many ways in which Borealis is putting its EverMinds mind-set to work in developing technologies and products which help accelerate the transition from a linear to a circular economy. These polyolefins are an alternative to conventional fossil fuel-based feedstocks, thus lowering the carbon footprint of the products without having to compromise on either quality or performance. Bornewables are suitable for the most demanding applications, including hygiene and food-contact.

Unlike renewable feedstocks produced with agricultural crops grown for food and livestock feed, the Bornewables are made of renewably-sourced feedstocks derived solely from waste and residue streams: from vegetable oil production as well as oil waste and residues; the timber industry; the food industry – for instance, used cooking oil. From a sustainability perspective, re-using waste to manufacture renewable feedstocks further enhances the Bornewables appeal.

The entire Bornewables portfolio has been ISCC Plus (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certified. This certification system ensures the traceability of the renewable, sustainably produced feedstock from its point of origin through the entire chain of custody.
