Industrial Enzyme Solutions

As we approach a population of 9 billion people on this planet by 2050, we need to find more sustainable ways to continue to improve the lives of our global community.

By harnessing the best of nature and improving it further, industrial enzymes help to address challenging industrial problems and expand the boundaries of the green chemistry revolution.

Collaboration with enzyme associations

We keep our research, development, and production practices at world-class standards by leveraging the knowledge of global enzyme associations. By sharing our expertise with these associations, we do our part to improve the environmental sustainability of global enzyme applications. We are proud contributors to numerous associations such as the Enzyme Technical Association (ETA) and Association of Manufacturers and Formulators of Enzyme Products (AMFEP).

Championing the environment: A lighter footprint through the utilization of enzymes

Our enzymes are designed to generate revenue in an environmentally sustainable way. For example, our phytase enzyme provides feed manufacturers and farmers considerable cost savings while caring for the environment by reducing water pollution and making animals more efficient at digesting their feed. (AMFEP).

Often cited as the “First Wave” of industrial biotechnology, enzymes have become established as critical parts of our everyday lives, working as a silent partner behind the scenes. They help you clean your clothes better, keep your bread fresher, help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, make our farm animals healthier with lower environmental impact, and reduce water, energy and other chemical inputs in a variety of industrial processes. Enzymes are produced via fermentation and are naturally biodegradable once used for their intended application.

Innovative and more sustainable enzyme solutions help industrial manufacturers speed up their production processes. BASF develops, produces and markets a comprehensive selection of high-performance enzymes. We combine extensive know-how and industry expertise with a diverse portfolio of high-performance products used for animal nutritionbioenergy and home care and industrial and institutional solutions.
