Plastic additive carbon footprints

BASF says that it has made available product carbon footprints (PCFs) for some of its antioxidants and light stabilizer plastic additives.

The PCFs available cover the total greenhouse gas emissions made from the extraction of resources, the manufacturing of precursors and the making of the final chemical product.

“BASF aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050,” said Dr. Achim Sties, senior vice president, BASF. “At the same time, we are continuously working with our customers to help them reach their climate targets.”
