BASF introduces first isocyanate not carrying CO2 backpack


BASF introduces the first greenhouse gas neutral aromatic isocyanate (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) with an accounting Cradle-to-Gate1 Product Carbon Footprint2 (PCF) of zero. Zero emissions up to the factory gate are achieved without offset certificates. Instead, renewable raw materials are used at the beginning of the chemical production chain and allocated via a mass balance process. In addition, renewable energies are used for the manufacturing process with green energy certificates (e.g. Renewable Energy Certificates). The verification of the PCF calculation by TÜV Nord has been successfully completed. Click here for more information.
