Curious about the VALERAS® journey?
Plastics have an exceptional role to play in creating a circular economy. This valuable material can be used, re-used, and eventually recycled.
The solutions in the VALERAS® portfolio are designed to keep plastic in the loop by increasing durability of the material with light stabilizers such as those in our Tinuvin product line.
We also develop additive solutions to enable plastics to be more easily recycled and used in new applications.

Renewable Raw Materials
Renewable raw materials contribute to a sustainable future by reducing CO2 emissions through their climate-neutral balance and by replacing fossil-fuel based raw materials.
The VALERAS® portfolio also contains a number of products, such as with Irgastab® FS 042-V, that contain a significant percentage of plant-based raw materials.
Product Carbon Footprint
While BASF is continuously working to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050, more and more customers are making environmentally conscious purchasing decisions.
BASF Plastic Additives is committed to calculating and sharing the carbon footprint of our products with our customers. This information allows the entire industry to reduce greenhouse case emissions along the value chain.
