Borouge supplies sustainable materials for Middle East and Africa projects


Borouge Plc, a leading petrochemical company that provides innovative and differentiated polyolefin solutions, is supplying sustainable ‘Made in UAE’ polyethylene materials worth AED 120mn (US$32.6mn) for use in several development projects across the Middle East and Africa regions

Borouge’s contribution to these mega projects is driven by collaboration with the local manufacturing companies who selected Borouge’s products to be used to make durable and reliable pipelines for various ongoing development projects across Egypt, Oman and Tanzania

Khalfan Al Muhairi, senior vice president, Region MEAE at Borouge, said, “Selecting our materials for such key projects reflects the competitive advantage of Borouge’s materials and the company’s ability to develop sustainable tailored solutions that fit the needs for all types of development projects. We will continue our contribution in shaping the region’s most prominent projects with our infrastructure solutions that are reliable and enable modern living.” 

The pipes used in these projects were made from various grades of Borouge BorSafe PE100 polyethylene materials, enabled by advanced Borstar technology, which significantly contribute to lowering installation, operational and maintenance costs for customers and endusers, compared to other materials. 

Borouge materials also contribute to reducing carbon emissions generated during the manufacturing process of the pipes and their operational lifespan. Pipes made of BorSafe material can also be recycled at the end of their lifecycle. 

Some of the major ongoing projects which selected Borouge’s materials include the  Al Mudhaibi Water Supply Project (Oman), where Borouge provided its polyethylene infrastructure solutions to construct a 820 km water distribution network in the Wilayat of Al Mudhaibi in North Al Sharqiyah Governorate in Oman; the Toshka Project (Egypt) where Borouge supplied various grades of its innovative and differentiated polyethylene solutions to make pipes between 200 mm–1,400 mm in diameter for the first and second phases of the project; and Dar Es Salaam Water and Sewage Project (Tanzania), where Borouge’s polyethylene materials were also supplied to Dar Es Salaam Water and Sewerage Authority in Tanzania for the ongoing Kigamboni water project.
