By fully integrating sustainability into our strategic decision making, we will be able to generate many new business opportunities.
To create additional value for BASF we:
BASF and Hengst have developed the world’s first reusable plastic spin-on oil filter module for cars. Blue.on is the sustainable alternative to conventional spin-on modules made from metal, since it does not need to be replaced during filter change. It is made from Ultramid® Structure LFX, a long glass fiber-reinforced high-performance plastic from BASF whose specific properties provide new opportunities for metal substitution. Blue.on offers a solution to a key problem of the automotive industry when it comes to oil filter change: each year, about two billion oil filters are replaced and disposed. During oil change, the entire filter unit is exchanged, and the residual oil is disposed as hazardous waste. Moreover, a big amount of additional litter is generated.
At interpack 2020, which is being held in Düsseldorf from May 7 to 13, BASF experts and specialists from BTC Europe, BASF’s European distribution organization, will present a wide range of plastics, dispersions for adhesives as well as resins and additives for printing inks and barrier coatings in hall 10, booth B43. Solutions focus on the entire life cycle of the packaging products, from production and use to recovery options at the end of their service life. They reduce the environmental footprint while remaining economically and socially viable.
