It develops value-added products and technology for customers worldwide that produce consumer, industrial and packaging products.

NOVA Chemicals’ quality polyethylene (PE) resins provide high-performance, sustainable, cost-effective solutions that can help to extend food freshness, reduce packaging gauge, improve organoleptic properties, enhance barrier properties and provide product protection. They are a resilient alternative to traditional materials for numerous applications, including food packaging, heavy-duty sacks, hygiene films, caps and closures, industrial injection moulding, small part blow moulding and many more.

The company is a leader in expandable polystyrene (EPS) technology and applications development. EPS has moved beyond foam packaging and insulation to become a significant source of foam construction products for many applications as well as the traditional foam beverage cup. The primary markets include Building & Construction, Geofoam, Packaging and Cup & Container. It is also the licensor of its proprietary SCLAIRTECH™ technology and NOVACAT™ family of catalysts. SCLAIRTECH technology has been available for licence for more than 20 years. Licensees are located around the world and offer leading-edge resin solutions in their markets. Currently, more than 2.6 million tonnes of PE is produced using this technology.
