Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – 11 January, 2024: Borouge Plc, a leading petrochemical company known for its innovative and differentiated polyolefin solutions, today announced the signing of a AED160-million agreement with NAFFCO, a leading UAE-based manufacturer and supplier of fire protection systems, to supply NAFFCO’s local and regional infrastructure projects with Borouge’s innovative and sustainable polyethylene (PE100) materials.

Hazeem Sultan Al Suwaidi, Chief Executive Officer of Borouge, said: “Our partnership with NAFFCO underscores how Borouge is leveraging its advanced polyolefin technology to enhance mega projects and support the UAE's economic diversification and industrial growth.
