    Visual: nanostructure

    The dimensions are tiny but their potential is huge: nanotechnology is one of the strongest innovation drivers in research and development. BASF is convinced of the possibilities offered by this cross-sectional technology. We can use it to develop sustainable innovations to meet the challenges of the future.

    The global population is predicted to reach nine billion by 2050. They will all need adequate living space, a secure energy supply and good medical care. Nanotechnology will be indispensable in making this happen while simultaneously safeguarding the environment.

    BASF uses nanotechnology to develop new products and improve existing ones. Nanotechnology is a cross-sectional technology. It is used in many sectors, such as health, electronics, building and construction and automotive to develop innovative nanomaterials with new performance features.

    We create chemistry
    that makes small dimensions love big challenges.
