Enpro will handle and distribute a total volume of approximately a 246.000 tonnes of value added polyolefins annually through the Guangzhou Logistics Hub.

The ceremony was also attended by the People's Republic of China Ambassador to the UAE, His Excellency Gao Yusheng, together with a delegation of high ranked Officials from the Nansha District Government, lead by Mr. Tang Hanghao, Vice Secretary General of the Guangzhou Municipal Government, Mr. Li Yao Xin, Chairman of Enpro, Mr. Zhuang Ruijin, the Economic & Commercial Counselor as well as other representatives from both parties.

Abdulaziz Alhajri, Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Polymers the manufacturing Company of Borouge emphasized that "The Guangzhou logistics hub is one of several regional logistics hubs that will provide storage and logistics support for our operations close to our customers. It will enable us to provide a fast, flexible delivery service to our customers. Enpro comes to us with a well thought logistics plan backed up by a strong local knowledge of the Guangzhou area and the China market as a whole.

Borouge's current production capacity in the UAE is 600,000 tonnes of Borstar® polyethylene per year. With the ongoing Borouge 2 project expansion, this capacity will increase to 2 million tonnes per year by the middle of 2010 and will add polypropylene to the product mix. Construction of the Borouge 2 facility has already started and consists of a 1.5 million tonnes ethane cracker, the world's largest olefins conversion unit (with a capacity of 750,000 tonnes), two Borstar® polypropylene plants with a total capacity of 800,000 tonnes and a 540,000 tonnes Borstar® polyethylene plant.
