We Create Chemistry for a Sustainable Future

Our contribution to your sustainable solutions

Climate protection is the biggest global challenge we face today. BASF Inorganic Chemicals is committed to constantly reduce the carbon footprint of our products and of our customers.

Climate protection is very important to us and is a crucial part of our corporate strategy. BASF has set itself new, more ambitious goals on its journey to climate neutrality and wants to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

To achieve this, BASF has adopted a comprehensive carbon management strategy. CO2 avoidance potential in electric power and steam production is covered through levers "grey-to-green" and "power-to-steam". CO2 emissions in the upstream and, to a lesser extent, downstream plants are addressed by new technologies. As a central component of our Verbund site in Ludwigshafen, inorganic chemicals will benefit from those innovations.

The strengths of our Verbund sites

Sustainability is part of the DNA of BASF. Since the development of the first Verbund sites at Ludwigshafen more than 150 years ago, BASF efficiently uses resources and optimizes material flows and logistics.

Today, inorganic chemicals are produced at Verbund sites at Ludwigshafen and Antwerp to serve our global customers.

Efficiency has been the focus of BASF for many years, and they are continuously improving the carbon footprint leveraging on their own Verbund Integration. BASF is committed to putting new measures in place to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

BASF continuously invests in our Verbund sites to further save CO2 emissions. Every measure counts and can make a big difference.

In the nitric acid cluster at Inorganic Chemicals, for example, digitalization measures and improved process control enabled BASF to avoid 145,000 tons of CO2 equivalents per year by increasing the nitrous oxide (N2O) decomposition rate from 99% to 99.9%.
