Borealis continues to invest in the expansion of its advanced mechanical recycling capabilities by building a commercial-scale plant in Schwechat, Austria.

The plant will operate based on Borealis’ Borcycle™ M technology, capable of transforming polyolefin-based post-consumer waste into high-performance polymers suitable for demanding applications. The technology was tested in a demonstration plant Borealis operates together with Tomra and Zimmerman, showing successful value chain cooperation for circularity. Mechanical recycling plays a major role in Borealis’ strategic approach to achieving circularity. From 2025 onwards, the plant will contribute 60 Kt of advanced mechanical recycled polyolefin solutions per year, contributing to Borealis’ circularity targets of supplying a capacity of 600 Kt of circular productions and solutions by 2025 and 1.8 Mt by 2030.
