The Bornewables™

Meet your sustainability targets with ISCC Plus-certified polyolefins produced from renewable feedstocks.

Embrace circularity with our new Bornewables™ portfolio

Introducing the Bornewables™, our new portfolio of circular polyolefin products. Manufactured with renewable feedstocks, these premium polyolefins offer the same material performance as virgin polyolefins, yet decoupled from fossil based feedstock.

Innovative Bornewables products may be used in a wide range of applications in various industries, and are even suitable for food-contact packaging and healthcare applications.

Unlike renewable feedstocks produced with agricultural crops grown for food and livestock feed, the Bornewables are made of renewably-sourced feedstocks derived solely from waste and residue streams: from vegetable oil production as well as oil waste and residues; the timber industry; the food industry – for instance, used cooking oil. From a sustainability perspective, re-using waste to manufacture renewable feedstocks further enhances the Bornewables appeal.

At the beginning of 2020, Borealis began producing polypropylene (PP) based on renewably-sourced feedstocks at our facilities in Kallo and Beringen, Belgium, a milestone on the journey to replacing fossil fuel-based feedstocks in the large-scale commercial production of PP.

Our promise to you when selecting the Bornewables™ for your sustainable portfolio


We’re always looking for new ways we can contribute to the circular economy and produce reliable materials that don’t cost the earth.

Quality & Health

We make sustainable polyolefins without reducing quality or safety standards.

Renewable Feedstock

We started to make polyolefins using renewably-sourced feedstock.


We want to lower our environmental footprint and with Renewable PO we take action against climate change.

Innovation (Foresight)

By using the Mass Balance Model, we can offer quality and sustainable standards your customers expect, while contributing to a better future for us all.

The Mass Balance Model

The mass balance model for the Bornewables line of products works by partially replacing fossil feedstock with renewably-sourced feedstock. The entire chain of custody is certified by the high standards of the ISCC Plus critera.


The Bornewables portfolio is another example of how Borealis is implementing the EverMinds™ mindset in practice to facilitate the transition from a linear to a circular economy. We invite you to join us and embrace circularity by using the Bornewables portfolio for existing or future applications.
