Nonwovens are expected to provide increasingly high performance while saving costs and energy in processing and use. Producers and consumers are looking for safe and health-compatible products.
We at BASF are well aware of the key issues for nonwoven applications. For us, sustainability is more than just a trend - it is a development process. We strive to achieve a balance between the three dimensions of sustainable development: economy, environment and society.
By using our standardized Sustainable Solution Steering Method, we assess the sustainability contribution of each of our products and systematically steer our portfolio towards more efficient solutions. No matter which aspect is important to you, with our products you can benefit from first-mover advantage.
We develop formulation additives and binders with minimized volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This improves occupational safety and enables healthcompatible nonwovens.
Low system costs
We contribute to reducing your system costs without impact on performance, for example through lower drying temperatures or more effi cient binders for various fi ber types.
Biobased raw materials
BASF’s mass balance approach allows you to derive our products from renewable feedstock. This way you can save fossil resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
To track products from cradle to grave you can use our eco-efficiency analysis. The purpose of this tool is to harmonize economy and ecology. This helps you to optimize your portfolio.
