Shaping new material cycles
A Circular Economy can only be achieved if circularity is planned in the product development. For BASF this starts with designing long-lasting materials with a high material value at end-of-life together with our customers. For end-of-life management, we develop additives and adhesives which improve or enable the mechanical recycling of end products. We are also working to establish product-specific recycling loops, for example for mattresses and batteries. We are working together with partners in the value chain from the collect recyclables as well as developing the technology to process the material.
