Borealis invests in semi-commercial catalyst plant, and more plant watch and mergers news

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.
