BASF now offers high performance Ultramid (polyamide), which is derived from renewable raw materials. BASF uses an approach that replaces up to 100% of the fossil resources used at the beginning of the integrated production process with certified biomass. The share of renewable raw materials in the sales product is then indicated in the respective quantity. A third-party certification confirms to customers that BASF has used the required quantities of renewable raw materials which the customer has ordered in the value chain.
“Consumer demand for products made of renewable raw materials continues to rise,” says Joachim Queisser, senior vice president of the polyamides and precursors Europe regional business unit. “This offering opens excellent possibilities for packaging film manufacturers to market their products accordingly.”
