Borealis production facility in The Netherlands is situated in the Chemelot Industrial Park in Sittard-Geleen. Borealis Plastomers V.O.F was acquired and integrated in the Borealis Group in 2013. Originally it was established in 1996 as a 50/50 Joint Venture between DSM Plastomers B.V. and Exxon Chemical Holland Ventures B.V.
With approximately 100 employees, the site produces metallocene plastomers and specialty Ziegler-Natta linear low density polyethylenes with 2 production lines. These metallocene plastomers are low density specialty ethylene copolymers bringing benefits in different applications, such as flexibility and heat sealing properties or impact modification properties. They are used in a large and growing range of applications around the world. The linear low density polyethylenes have a proven history in high quality film and other applications.
The actual capacity of both plants is 120 kilotonnes on an annual basis.
