Borealis and SYSTEMIQ Project STOP to prevent ocean plastic leakage welcomes Borouge, a leading petrochemicals company that provides innovative and value creating plastics solutions, as a strategic partner, joining the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, NOVA Chemicals, Nestle and the Alliance to End Plastic Waste. Since its inception, Project STOP has welcomed a number of strategic partners, the newest one being Borouge, which originally joined the project in 2017 as a supporting partner. Project STOP works hand in hand with local municipalities and environmental agencies in Southeast Asia to contribute to developing a low cost and circular waste management infrastructure through city partnership projects in Indonesia.

Project STOP partners with industry players, as well as governments and the local community, and has three key objectives: to achieve zero leakage of waste into the environment, increase resource efficiency and recycle more plastics, as well as create benefits for the local communities. Since the launch of Project STOP’s first city partnership in Muncar, in 2018, 1,800 tonnes of waste, of which 300 tonnes are plastic, have been collected. Furthermore, 60 local jobs have been created and waste management collection has been made accessible to more than 30,000 people, most of them for the first time.

Borouge is committed to being part of Project STOP’s future expansion, which has launched a new city partnership in Jembrana in Bali, Indonesia. A third city project is currently under preparation. With these three cities Project STOP will reach 450,000 people and prevent 80,000 tons of waste leaking into the ocean every year.
