Borouge has been supplying sustainable “Made in UAE” polyethylene materials worth $32.6 million that are used in several development projects across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) regions.

Borouge’s contribution to these mega projects is driven by collaboration with the local manufacturing companies who selected Borouge’s products due to their unique properties being the optimum materials to be used to make durable and reliable pipelines for various ongoing development projects across Egypt, Oman and Tanzania.

The pipes used in these projects were made from various grades of Borouge BorSafe PE100 polyethylene materials, enabled by advanced Borstar technology, which significantly contribute to lowering installation costs, operational costs and maintenance costs for customers and end-users, compared to other materials.

“Selecting our materials for such key projects reflects the competitive advantage of Borouge’s materials and the company’s ability to develop sustainable tailored solutions that fit the needs of all types of development projects. We will continue our contribution in shaping the region’s most prominent projects with our infrastructure solutions that are reliable and enable modern living.”

Furthermore, Borouge materials also contribute to reducing carbon emissions generated during the manufacturing process of the pipes and their operational lifespan. Pipes made of BorSafe material can also be recycled at the end of their lifecycle.

Some major ongoing projects which selected Borouge’s materials include, Al Mudhaibi Water Supply Project in Oman. Borouge provided its polyethylene infrastructure solutions to construct a water distribution network with a length of 820 km in the Wilayat of Al Mudhaibi in North Al Sharqiyah Governorate in Oman. The Oman Water and Wastewater Services Company (OWWSC) selected Borouge’s materials to make high-density polyethylene pipes that conform to the latest local and international specifications and contribute to preserving the environment.

Also, the Toshka Project in Egypt, where Borouge supplied various grades of its innovative and differentiated polyethylene solutions, the best in class of polyethylene materials, to make pipes between 200 mm–1,400 mm in diameter for the first and second phases of the ongoing Toshka project in southern Egypt to make the country less dependent on food imports.

The contractor selected Borouge’s materials due to their superior properties that enable the production of reliable large and thick-walled pipelines. Borouge will keep supplying this project throughout 2023.
