Borealis and Borouge, leading providers of innovative, value-creating plastics solutions, announce the launch of Quentys™, the new umbrella brand created to empower and potentially revolutionise the solar energy industry by making applications more affordable, reliable, and durable. Borealis and Borouge are leveraging their decades of experience in the energy sector, and forming new strategic partnerships along the entire solar value chain, in order to deliver step-change innovations to the market.

By 2025 solar is expected to have the highest global annual capacity added of all energy sources, reaching over 100 Gigawatt (GW) capacity added per year. As reliable and trusted suppliers with a truly global reach, Borealis and Borouge are prepared to meet this rising demand by working with partners and customers around the world to exploit the full potential of solar.

Borealis and Borouge have an unparalleled track record in Value Creation through Innovation, especially in the energy industry. This innovative force is now being unleashed in the field of solar, where new material solutions based on unique and proprietary technologies have been developed for applications such as backsheets and encapsulant films. These step-change innovations in the Quentys family improve the operational reliability of photovoltaic (PV) modules, reduce processing complexity, and extend the lifetime of PV panels.

The first new product developed in partnership with ISOVOLTAIC was just launched.

Borealis and Borouge are applying their material expertise to make solar power even more affordable and efficient. For example, single-step production technologies reduce manufacturing complexity and thus costs. Innovative materials increase both output and lifespan of PV modules. These are key to maintaining the market momentum currently enjoyed by renewables.

Borealis Student Innovation Award Winners 2016-2017

On 16 May 2017, Borealis presented the winners of the 2016-2017 Student Innovation Award at the Researcher Day in Porvoo, Finland. A jury of high-level Borealis research experts selected the winners in the three categories.

The PhD Thesis Award was presented to Ester Laguna-Gutierrez from the University of Valladolid in Spain for her thesis titled, "Understanding the foamability of complex polymeric systems by using extensional rheology."

The Master Thesis Award was presented to Stefano Caputo from the University of Salerno in Italy for his thesis titled, "Synthesis and applications in the self-healing of aircraft materials of a new Hoveyda-Grubbs catalyst."

The Bachelor Thesis Award was presented to Nanjunda Shanmuga Velu from Ecole Nationale Superieure d´arts et Metiers in Paris, France, for his thesis titled, "Synthesis of carbon nanostructures through catalytic decomposition of polymer precursors."

The Borealis Student Innovation Award is an international competition for students aiming to recognise innovative thinking and pioneering solutions in the area of olefin, polyolefin or base chemicals research. This year marks the ninth year of the award, which is a key element in Borealis' support for the development of new talent and the stimulation of thought processes in chemicals and polymers. The winners were given a trophy as well as a monetary reward by Maurits van Tol, Borealis Senior Vice President Innovation and Technology.
