BASF Materials in refrigerators, freezers & boilers
To increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint, a new version of the EU energy label for appliances was being introduced. Since 1 March 2021 the new energy label is applicable for the following four household product categories: fridges and freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, and television sets.
Besides these strict EU labels also producers and consumers all around the globe are demanding highly energy efficient solutions. BASF has a wide product portfolio to answer this demand for electrical appliances. We want to make sure that your products can meet all the demands that are placed on a sustainable household.
Apart from our product portfolio, which delivers energy efficient solutions, we contribute to close and extend the loops by developing and implementing circular solutions for the materials we source. Together with KraussMaffei, Rampf,and REMONDIS we are developing a new process for chemical recycling, closing the material cycle for PUR rigid foams from old refrigerators.
