Global Challenges

The global population is estimated to reach 9 billion by 2050. Major challenges to support that growth include having enough water, food and energy for all while meeting expectations of rising living standards. At BASF we believe through creating chemistry and leveraging industrial biotechnology, we will be able to meet these challenges.

Why Enzymes?

From enzymes in detergents, to enzymes which enhance the nutrition of the food we eat, enzymes are part of our everyday lives. They make the products we use daily more efficient, are naturally biodegradable and have a great safety profile. Enzymes are part of a growing movement towards the biobased economy.

We invite potential collaborators and customers to engage with BASF to jointly collaborate and solve problems together.
