Certified & available now: our lowPCF product portfolio

Carbon emission reduction is currently one of the main challenges for BASF, our partners and customers. The comprehensive lowPCF portfolio will contribute to a more sustainable future with plastic products. 

lowPCF products - Designed for a significant reduction of CO2 emissions

The lowPCF portfolio covers main grades of the Engineering plastics and Polyurethane portfolio being used in various applications. The Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) of all these products is at least 30% lower compared to corresponding fossil-based grades. Due to the variety of products, there is not one way to realize this reduction. BASF has selected the currently most efficient measures to achieve a reduced PCF for each grade and will continuously check further emission optimization measures over the value chain. For all grades, the major PCF reduction will be achieved by use of Biomethane, which is allocated to the lowPCF products by the mass-balance approach. Additionally, green electricity and low emission raw materials will be used wherever possible. All products in the core portfolio are chemically and physically identical with their corresponding fossil products and certified according to the REDcert2 scheme. 

lowPCF products available immediately - more will be added

Products of the initial lowPCF portfolio are immediately available within a standard lead time. A second roll-out wave with more products will come in early 2023, adding for example grades of the Ultramid® Advanced portfolio. Further portfolio extension will also be steered by customer feedback and market needs.
