The Monomers division of BASF has announced an ambitious sustainability roadmap: It will expand its portfolio of products with a lower CO2 footprint and is committed to providing a circular option in every major product line by 2025. At the same time, the division will continue to prioritize technical optimization measures to cut CO2 emissions from operations.
»We understand sustainability as the decisive factor for future business success.«
Dr. Ramkumar Dhruva, President, Monomers division at BASF

The 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 towards climate neutrality and net zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
Net zero greenhouse gas emission targets demand a new level of carbon transparency. The product carbon footprint (PCF) is therefore becoming a differentiating factor, even for commoditized products. The Monomers division of BASF SE, Ludwigshafen/Germany, is establishing a certified low-PCF option in all of its product lines by applying the company’s mass balance approach. Examples are Lupranat Zero, an MDI made from bio-based raw materials that has a PCF of zero, and Ultramid Ccycled, an innovative material for the textile industry for which chemically recycled feedstock from end-of-life tires is used in production and attributed through a certified mass balance approach. The division has major sites, and more than 200 products are already RedCert2 or ISCC+ certified. It aims to have additional sites certified in all regions by the end of 2023 and will continue to expand its portfolio of certified mass balanced products for its customers worldwide.
