For growing applications, Borouge utilizes the unique Borstar® technology to produce the FB2230 product that is used in greenhouse films. This film receives sunlight and spreads and diffuses it evenly and in the most efficient way all over the plants helping to improve the growth of quality crops. Borouge’s FB2230 are used to produce distinguished greenhouse films that are recognized with their mechanical performance, in addition to small tunnel films, direct covers, mulch films, shading nets and screens and drip irrigation. Greenhouse films made of Borstar® enhanced polyethylene prevent crops damage and maintain its shape even in tough weather conditions.
“As a leader in innovative plastic pipe solutions and committing to address the challenge of increasing food production with limited water resources, Borouge provides producers of pipes for agricultural applications its tailor-made Borstar® Aquility™ range of performance solutions for durable drip irrigation systems,” said Lootah. These drip irrigation systems can eliminate water wastage by providing a continuous and controlled flow of water through a chain of pipes and drippers, directly to the root zone of each plant. This precise irrigation method significantly increases the efficiency of the irrigation application, with a substantial increase in crops yield.
