Coronavirus and Measures at BASF

The coronavirus pandemic is currently posing major challenges to many people and also to companies. The past weeks have demonstrated: only together can we succeed in overcoming this crisis. At BASF, we believe we are well prepared. The well-being of our employees and supplying our customers in the best possible way have the utmost priority for us.
Digitalization in research contributes to making research work more efficient, expanding knowledge networks, and creating more space for creativity. Chemist Dr Fangfang Chu and molecular simulation expert Dr Eduard Schreiner discuss the computer simulation of a microencapsulation. It is used to protect active ingredients, for example from moisture and oxygen. Simulations help to better understand and predict the complex chemical and physical interactions within the microcapsule, allowing laboratory test series to be planned more precisely.

Innovation for the future

A growing need for food, clean water and energy, limited resources and a booming world population – reconciling all these factors is the greatest challenge of our time. Innovations based on chemistry play a key role here, as they contribute decisively to new solutions.
We want our customers to experience a new BASF – for example, in our Creation Centers. At these spaces full of inspiration and the latest technology, customers can discover BASF’s high-performance plastics, explore potential applications and work hand-in-hand with BASF experts to create new products. This accelerates the process of transforming conceptual ideas to creative solutions. The photo shows our Creation Center in Shanghai, China, which we opened in August 2019. It is one of four of its kind worldwide.


To form the best team, we rely on committed people with different experiences and perspectives. Become part of this diverse team!
