EverMinds™ is the umbrella that unites the wide range of Borealis activities and initiatives aimed at making plastics more circular. First launched in 2018, this dedicated platform encompasses proprietary Borealis technologies and brands, including the recently introduced recycling technology, Borcycle™. This evolving technology is being used to produce high-quality compounds made of recycled polyolefins (rPO). It enriches the company’s existing virgin polyolefin portfolio with pioneering circular solutions for a broad range of demanding applications. Borcycle™ has now become the home brand for all existing Daplen™ post-consumer recyclate (PCR) grades.
A vital component of the Borealis EverMinds philosophy is that customer centricity drives polyolefins innovation. As the automotive industry pivots towards electric powertrains, it is increasingly crucial to reduce vehicular weight in order to extend range and lower the overall CO2 footprint. Automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers require a global supply of a wider range of lighter weight material solutions with enhanced sustainability. At the same time, these solutions must fulfil stringent performance characteristics, offer pleasing visual aesthetics, and allow for design freedom.
In 2014, Borealis was one of the first virgin polyolefin suppliers to launch under its Daplen™ brand a range of dedicated polypropylene (PP) compound solutions which included PCR for use in automotive applications. Ever since, Borealis has helped its automotive partners raise the share of recycled plastics in vehicles by developing innovative polyolefin-based solutions composed of both virgin and ever higher levels of PCR content.
The trusted Daplen portfolio, which includes three proven high-quality compounds developed in Europe, has now been rebranded as Borcycle™. It includes:
Underscoring our global supply capacity, in 2015 Borealis Brasil also launched three additional grades for the South American market:
