By Chemical Engineering |

December 14, 2009 — Borealis (Vienna, Austria; http://www.borealisgroup.com) has announced plans for a €75-million investment in Linz, Austria for a new semi-commercial catalyst plant to develop and scale up new catalysts for the production of innovative new polymers. Borealis has developed a revolutionary, new production technology for catalysts that is protected by 47 international patents. Based on this production technology, the new catalyst plant will support research in the areas of catalyst development and will further improve processes for catalyst production. The investment in a semi-commercial plant for catalysts in Linz allows Borealis to undertake the necessary development work as well as produce semi-commercial batches for the first phase in the development process. This requires a close alignment with the new, recently commissioned Borstar pilot plant in Schwechat, which involved an investment of € 30 million.
