Borealis A/S of Denmark has licensed metallocene PP catalyst technology from Novolen Technology Holdings C.V., a joint venture of ABB and Equistar that acquired PP polymerization technology from BASF’s former Targor subsidiary. Borealis plans to apply the superior properties afforded by metallocene catalysts to its Borstar multimodal PP polymerization technology, which reportedly produces high processability. Both companies will work together to develop new metallocene catalysts. Borealis’ Film & Fibre Business Unit, which sells polyolefin resins, is located in Linz, Austria.
