Styrenics and sustainability

We create chemistry for a sustainable future. Sustainability is one of the key topics of the BASF corporate strategy and includes all elements from the value-added chain and production to recyling. The Circular Economy of the polystyrene applications Styropor®, Neopor® and Styrodur® reflects these efforts of the BASF and shows how sustainable packaging and sustainable construction can work. 


EPS and the Circular Economy

Keeping the raw materials used in the cycle and reducing the use of fossil raw materials belong to BASF's overarching goals towards a circular economy.

You can see the role EPS plays
in this in the video here.


Sustainable construction

The polystyrene insulation materials Neopor® and Styrodur® from BASF reduce CO2 emissions and save valuable resources. Moreover, innovative approaches from raw material production to recycling offer a holistically sustainable life cycle. 


Sustainable packaging

BASF offers various polystrene based products to the packaging industry and is pursuing a variety of solutions for the environmentally friendly manufacture and recycling of Styropor®.


Circular Economy 

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.
