Ultramid® Biomass Balance Polyamide
Derived from renewable raw materials (Biomass)
As our customers and consumers are becoming more aware of how clothing is made, and the impact of textile production on the environment, BASF brings a new polyamide solution based on renewable feedstock to the world of fashion. Ultramid® biomass Balance opens up new opportunities to create more sustainable solutions – all without the need to change your production setup.
In the biomass balance approach, renewable resources such as bio-naphtha or biogas derived from organic waste or vegetable oils are used together with fossil resources already in the very first steps of chemical production. The bio-based amount is then allocated mathematically to specific products sold by means of the certified method.
