Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) and Borouge, a petrochemicals company, have partnered to adopt best practices in waste management, sorting, and mechanical recycling of polymers.
Both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore opportunities in polymer waste sorting for mechanical recycling as well as to develop a sustainable ecosystem to secure the generation of high-quality polymer recyclates using different technologies.
In addition, the partners will join forces to establish business development and benchmarking frameworks that unlock value-added business opportunities through potential joint investments in brown and greenfield assets.

We stand committed to crafting a legacy where waste becomes the cornerstone of innovation and where we build a brighter and more sustainable future for all.”
The agreement further reinforces Borouge and Tadweer’s leading industry positions and supports their circular economy ambitions.
