1925 – 1944 / New High-Pressure Syntheses

BASF builds on its expertise in the Haber-Bosch process and develops additional areas to apply high-pressure technology: the hydrogenation of coal to generate synthetic fuel and the production of synthetic rubber (Buna). The company I.G. Farben forms the exterior framework for BASF to join forces with five other major chemical companies in 1925.
