Borealis will use the green power supply to raise the share of renewable power in its overall energy consumption at its production facilities in Belgium.

“Our target of sourcing 50% of renewable electricity for our operations by 2030 has become yet another step more tangible,” commented Wolfram Krenn, Borealis Executive Vice President Base Chemicals and Operations.
