Borealis, about us
We don’t just make ground-breaking plastics, chemicals and fertilizers. We make discoveries. At Borealis, we push the boundaries of what is possible to develop pioneering products that improve people’s lives. By continually exploring new opportunities and taking on new challenges, we relentlessly pursue new ways to serve our customers.
Expanding possibilities in polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers
Building on our proprietary Borstar® and Borlink™ technologies, our base chemical range includes melamine, phenol, acetone, ethylene, propylene, butadiene and pygas. These are used in many areas, including energy, automotive, piping, consumer products, healthcare and packaging. We provide fertilizers to the agricultural industry and technical nitrogen and melamine products, with applications ranging from mono-nitrogen oxide (NOx) abatement to glues and laminates, to the wood-working industry.

We also work hard to assure customers, suppliers and employees of our absolute commitment to improving the environment and wellbeing of the communities in which we operate. We see opportunities in addressing the challenges of sustainability, both within our business and in the wider environment.
