The mega-project Borouge 2, valued at an estimated US$5 billion, triples the annual polyolefins production capacity of the plant to 2 million tonnes per year.

In China, Borouge has invested in a manufacturing plant in Shanghai for the rapidly growing automotive and appliance markets in Asia, and a second plant is planned for Guangzhou.

To meet specific customer application demands and to lead the way in the development of the next generation of plastics solutions, Borouge is building an Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi, to be completed by the end of 2011.
