Together, OMV and Borealis will proactively expedite the transition from a linear to a circular economy. With this, we want to be a technological force, leading the way in overcoming one of the greatest challenges of our time: making a lower-carbon future a reality.
Recycling – A good deal for the environment
Many plastics are disposable products and that’s a shame because it means losing a valuable raw material. OMV and Borealis have been doing their own research on smart recycling technology for years. Together they can now become a leading player in the circular economy.

OMV's chemical recycling
In the field of chemical recycling, OMV is doing groundbreaking work in the industrial production of synthetic crude from plastic waste with its ReOil pilot project in the Schwechat Refinery.
Borealis' mechanical recycling
At Borealis, we believe that waste is just unused potential; value waiting to be reignited. Mechanical recycling is one way of giving polyolefin-based, post-consumer waste another life, supercharging the transition to a circular polyolefin industry. By creating consistent high quality, versatile materials in the most energy efficient way fit for broad needs and demanding applications, mechanical recycling has an important role to play in closing the material loop on plastics circularity.
