Circular Economy at BASF

Circular economy means decoupling growth from resource consumption. BASF is driving circular economy by making the most of the limited resources of our planet: We keep them in use for as long as possible, minimize waste and create value with renewable resources.

We contribute to close and extend the loops by developing and implementing circular solutions for the materials we source, further optimizing our operations and offering resource-efficient products and services which support our customers’ circularity journeys.
The aim is to realize a more Circular Economy by increasingly use recycled and renewable feedstocks, shaping new material cycles and creating new business models.



Circular Economy – The transformation from linear to circular value creation

The aim of the circular economy is to use fewer resources by efficient processes, waste prevention, re-use, repair, remanufacture and recycling. It focuses primarily on material cycles and relies on energy from renewable sources.

Battery recycling closes the loop in electromobility

More and more electric cars are registered worldwide every year. At the same time, the raw materials for the batteries are limited and their mining is associated with negative environmental impact.
