Borealis is one of the world’s largest producers and providers of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers.


Headquartered in Austria, Borealis provides services and products to customers around the world in collaboration with Borouge, a joint venture with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).


With more than 26 years of experience, the company has 6,600 employees and operates in over 120 countries. Its shareholder stake within the company is a combination between Mubadala with 25% and OMV with 75% stake.

Building on its proprietary Borstar® and Borlink™ technologies and more than 50 years of experience in polyolefins, Borealis and Borouge support key industries with a wide range of applications in the areas of energy, automotive, pipes, consumer products, healthcare, and advanced packaging.

Borealis produces a wide range of base chemicals such as ethylene, propylene, melamine, phenol, butadiene, pygas and acetone for use in numerous and diverse industries.

Borealis also creates real value for the agricultural industry, selling approximately 5 million tons of fertilizers in Austria, France, the Netherlands and Belgium . Technical nitrogen and melamine products complement the portfolio with applications ranging from mono-nitrogen oxide (NOx) abatement to glues and laminates in the wood working industry.

The Borouge 3 plant expansion has made Borouge the world’s largest integrated polyolefins complex. Now fully ramped up, the additional 2.5 million tons of polyolefins capacity yield a total Borouge capacity of 4.5 million tons, and a combined Borealis and Borouge capacity of 8 million tons.

Borealis and Borouge aim to proactively benefit society by taking on real societal challenges and offering real solutions. Both companies are committed to the principles of Responsible Care®, an initiative to improve safety performance within the chemical industry, and work to solve the world's water and sanitation challenges through product innovation and their Water for the World™ programme.

In 2017, Borealis co-founded Project STOP, a pioneering initiative to stop plastic leakage into the Indonesian ocean at the source, while working towards a circular economy, along-with other partners such as Nova Chemicals and Borouge.
