EQUATE Petrochemical company sponsored the 16th Engineering Design Exhibition organized by Kuwait University's Faculty of Engineering & Petroleum.

Commenting on this sponsorship, EQUATE's Human Resources Leader Yaqoub Al-Kandari said “This sponsorship stems from EQUATE's desire to share its success with the community through EQUATE Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program which devotes great attention to educational development, especially higher education.”

Al-Kandari noted that some of the designs showcased at the exhibition were developed after the students had visited EQUATE's plants, adding that EQUATE has sponsored this event in previous years.

Al-Kandari said “As EQUATE is a World Class company applying best practices in all business sectors, these scientific forums are a great opportunity to attract qualified individuals wishing to work in the private sector, especially Kuwaitis who comprise over 55% of EQUATE's workforce which is part of its business partnership strategies. EQUATE is planning on boosting ties with higher education organizations through signing memorandums of cooperation, such as the one signed with Faculty of Engineering & Petroleum in 2008.”

The exhibition included student designs relevant to water utilization, solar energy, architecture, oil and gas, as well as petrochemicals industries, such as ethylene and ethylene glycol plants.

In addition, EQUATE's booth was visited by many students, Kuwait University employees and other exhibiters interested in learning more about the company in terms of its industrial, social and economic roles.

Considered one of the world's leading companies in producing Polyethylene and Ethylene Glycol, EQUATE was established in 1995 and it is presently a joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), The Dow Chemical Company, Boubyan Petrochemicals Company and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company. It commenced production in 1997 and currently provides markets in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe with high quality petrochemical products.
