Kuwait – March 10 – 2013 — EQUATE Petrochemical Company participated in “Clean Up the Gulf” campaign launched by the Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association (GPCA) in cooperation with Kuwait’s Environment Public Authority (EPA).
With the participation of over 200 persons, EQUATE employees cooperated with students from a number of Kuwaiti schools, teachers and EPA staff in cleaning up a part of Kuwait’s beachfront at Youm Al-Bahhar.
The campaign was proposed by GPCA for its member companies, grouping EQUATE and several others, to organize such an activity within their respective communities through public engagement and participation.
As part of its efforts to preserve the environment through applying sustainability principles, EQUATE has launched throughout the years a number of initiatives including the Middle East’s First Plant Water Recycling Project and Kuwait’s First CO2 Recovery project.
Established in 1995, EQUATE is an international joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), Boubyan Petrochemical Company (BPC) and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company (QPIC). Commencing production in 1997, EQUATE is the single operator of a fully integrated world-scale manufacturing facility producing over 5 million tons annually of high-quality petrochemical products which are marketed throughout the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe.
