The Bornewables

Reducing fossil feedstock demand and carbon footprint

Bornewables are made from renewable feedstocks not suitable for human consumption, derived from non-food crops and plants (cellulosic feedstock, wood), waste, and residue streams (.e.g., UCO used vegetable oil). 

These premium polyolefins provide the same material performance as virgin polyolefins while being decoupled from fossil-based feedstock.
