Company aims to develop a circular option in every major product line by 2025

BASF’s Monomers division is introducing a certified low-PCF (product carbon footprint) option in all of its product lines by 2025. Examples are Lupranat ZERO, an MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) made from biobased raw materials that has a PCF of zero, and Ultramid Ccycled, a material for the textile industry for which chemically recycled feedstock from end-of-life tires is used in production and attributed via a certified mass balance approach, according to a press release from the Ludwigshafen, Germany-based company.

“As a commodity business at the heart of chemical production, we have the potential to significantly drive the sustainable transformation of both BASF and the various customer industries we serve,” says Ramkumar Dhruva, president, monomers division at BASF. The Monomers division supplies key industries from food packaging, textiles, automotive or construction to wood binders and many others with base chemicals. The new divisional sustainability roadmap is an essential part of BASF’s journey toward climate neutrality and net zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
