Borealis and Borouge remain committed to assist our customers around the world with the most complete offering to enable this Energy transformation The DYM acquisition will complement our offering to better serve our clients,” says Lucrèce Foufopoulos, Borealis Executive Vice President Polyolefins, Innovation and Circular Economy Solutions.
