Borouge, a leading provider of innovative, value creating plastics solutions, was awarded two 2010 ADNOC HSE Awards: the Environment and Sustainability categories during a ceremony held in Abu Dhabi on May 31, 2011.

An ADNOC HSE Award was granted to Borouge in the Environment category for the Borouge 2 Cracker successful start-up with environmental friendly Nitrogen cool down. Start up with Nitrogen at the world’s biggest Ethane Cracker at Borouge 2 cooled down the plant and its temperature stress sensible equipment to as low as minus 100 degree Centigrade to Hydrocarbon introduction. Subsequently, the plant start up time was greatly reduced with less overall flaring, massive reduction of CO2 emissions and associated environmental and economical benefits. This successful accomplishment set a milestone in the direction of environmentally safer operation of Ethylene plants.

A second award was given to Borouge and ADNOC Distribution for their joint waste collection for recycling programme. Borouge recently partnered with ADNOC Distribution to launch a consumer waste-recycling project in line with their commitment to environmental awareness and protection and social responsibility. Several solar-powered consumer waste recycling bins are located at selected ADNOC Distribution Service Stations in strategic locations around Abu Dhabi aiming to raise public awareness about the importance of environmental protection and avoidance of littering.

The Awards ceremony, which took place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi, was hosted by H.E. Yousef Omair bin Yousef, General Secretary of the Supreme Petroleum Council and ADNOC CEO.

Borouge is a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Austria based Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions.
