Circular economy means the decoupling of growth and resource consumption. The picture represents the variety of plastic waste of an average household. The aim is to establish a new understanding of plastic waste as a resource and to see research into recycling possibilities as an opportunity. BASF contributes to closing and expanding the cycles by developing and implementing recycling solutions for the materials we purchase, further optimizing our operations and offering resource-efficient products and services that support our customers' recycling targets.

We use the BASF Verbund to efficiently manage our material flows. The by-products of one plant often serve as feedstocks for another plant, avoiding waste. Moreover, we are also working intensively on solutions for a circular economy.
