— Plastics manufacturer Borouge plans to increase its capacity to produce polyolefins (polyethylene and polypropylene) by 8 percent by the end of next year.

That will bring the Abu Dhabi-based company's production capacity to 620,000 tons. Plastic pellets manufactured by Borouge are used in the infrastructure industry for, among other things, water pipe applications.
