Borealis_Circular Economy

Welcome to Our Future-Positive Revolution

Discover how Borealis is minimizing the impact of plastic on the planet through circularity.

We stand behind plastic for all its unrivaled benefits: versatility, safety, and durability. But today’s make-use-dispose economy creates waste and an environmental burden. At Borealis, we believe in a new way for plastic.

A circular way. Maximizing its value and efficiency across many lifetimes, minimizing its impact on the planet. That’s the Future-Positive Revolution we are already shaping today. From linear to circular. From resource-hungry to renewable. From climate-negative to carbon-neutrality. As a partner, we can help bring sustainability and circular progress closer.

The Circular Cascade Is Our Integrated Circular Way

This is how we decouple our own growth and the making of plastic from fossil-fuels. It’s about protecting and retaining precious carbon in the system, using complementary technologies and approaches in a circular fashion.



Our portfolio of circular base chemicals, manufactured with sustainable raw materials, drastically reducing the environmental footprint of the products that our society relies upon.

Design for eco-efficiency

We adopt a fundamental design mindset that starts with minimizing use of resources and maximizing their lifetime value.


We help maximize and extend the lifetime of products in circulation using our technical know-how and by establishing systems and business models for Reuse.

Design for Recycling

We design products that can be reused as well as being collected, sorted and recycled, by making appropriate material and design choices.

Mechanical Recycling

Mechanical Recycling begins to close the loop, using our Borcycle™ M technology to turn waste back into near-virgin quality plastic, with the lowest carbon footprint.

Chemical Recycling

Chemical recycling, to complement mechanical recycling. Further valorise residual wastes streams from our mechanical recycling operations, but also to valorize mixed plastic waste streams which would otherwise go to incineration, or even worse to landfills

Circular Progress is in the design and the detail

Success in circular transformation will rely on the details and design of products we make. Details that result in better use, reuse and recycling outcomes. Critical choices at the outset will set us on the right path. At Borealis, our circular cascade model means we help products live long and live again.

We support purposeful design for our customers. Designing for Eco-Efficiency, Designing for Reuse, Designing for Recycling. Minimizing usage, maximizing lifetime value and circular possibilities.

Through innovation and technical expertise that can collaborate with other expert partners in the value chain, we are on top of the choices and details that make progress happen.
