Who is Qenos?


Qenos is Australia’s sole manufacturer and leading supplier of world class polyethylene and polymers. In 2008, Qenos became a subsidiary of China National Bluestar (Group) Co. Ltd, a joint venture between China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina) and The Blackstone Group, a leading global alternative asset manager and provider of financial advisory services listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

Alkafuff is manufactured by Qenos in Botany NSW.

The Qenos Botany site covers 37 hectares in a major chemical and plastics manufacturing area located next to Botany Bay shipping terminal. The three major facilities at Botany – Olefines, Alkathene and Alkatuff – produce ethylene, low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The polyethylene produced is used across a range of industries and applications including consumer and industrial packaging, water conservation, waste management and agriculture.

Qenos adds value to Australia’s rich oil and gas reserves creating innovative products that promote sustainability across Australian industries. Every day in our homes, factories and farms, Australians rely on products made from the polymers and chemicals produced by Qenos. From juice and milk bottles, to mobile garbage bins, water tanks and pipes, to packaging of cleaning products and food. Qenos polymers are everywhere.

Qenos facilities in Melbourne and Sydney draw on technical expertise and productive relationships developed over more than 50 years to deliver solutions for a growing global market. Each year, Qenos contributes more than $1 billion to the Australian economy.

Qenos is proud to be an integral part of Australia’s plastics industry, a major contributor to this nation’s economy, a progressive employer and a safe and responsible member of our local communities.
