Polyolefins supplier Borouge has opened a 50,000 tpa compounding facility in Fengxian, aimed at supplying to China’s fast-growing automotive and household appliances markets. As per Plasticstoday, this is Borouges’ first production plant in China, as well as its first investment in production facilities outside of the United Arab Emirates. This plant reinforces its commitment to grow in the Chinese and other Asian markets. The new compounding plant, with potential to expand by 30,000 tpa, will be supplied feedstock from Borouge's new polypropylene plants in Abu Dhabi. In another move to strength its Chinese supply chain, Borouge is opening a logistics hub capable of handling up to 600,000 tpa of polyolefins, with that hub placed adjacent to the compounding plant.
