Borealis' Certifications in Mechanical Recycling

The acquisitions of recycling companies mtm plastics and Ecoplast are milestones on Borealis’ journey towards achieving circularity of polyolefins. They signify the company’s strategic intention to become a leader in mechanical recycling technologies and, in so doing, to increase the overall recycling rate and actively drive the circularity of polyolefins.
