BASF turns sustainable development into action

BASF turns sustainable development into action

October 16, 2002

BASF is the world's largest chemical company and has long been committed to pursuing the principle of sustainable development. As a pioneer in leading sustainable development in the world, BASF organized the "seminar on energy, environment and sustainable development" for the first time in Beijing, China

The purpose of this seminar is to provide a platform for government departments, industry peers and academia to share the experience and achievements of sustainable development, so as to further promote exchanges and cooperation in this field. Experts from all over the world gathered in the hall, including Chen Jinhua, vice chairman of the CPPCC National Committee of the people's Republic of China, Xu Kuangdi, President of the Chinese Academy of engineering, Dr. bodeley, German ambassador to China, and Ernst, a member of the German Parliament Feng Professor weizchak. In the half day tight agenda, the seminar covered many contents such as recent trends, technologies and innovative achievements

how does BASF understand sustainable development

The concept of sustainable development was formally put forward at the United Nations Conference in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 to accelerate the promotion of green manufacturing in the automotive industry. Its goal is to meet the economic Ecological and social needs

"the three cornerstones of sustainable economic growth and environmental protection coexist harmoniously with social needs when the distance from their head is equal to or less than twice the diameter. As a responsible partner of China, BASF attaches great importance to social behavior." Dr. Ni Xuande, President of BASF East Asia regional headquarters Co., Ltd

"In all production plants and investment projects in China, BASF has used the most advanced technology to ensure the lowest energy consumption and emissions. BASF has always introduced environmentally friendly products into the Chinese market. In order to evaluate the sustainability of our products and processes, we took the lead in implementing efficiency analysis. We will also become a founding member of the industrial and Commercial Council for sustainable development with Chinese partner Sinopec." Dr Ni added

tools for sustainable development

BASF demonstrated its ecological efficiency tools at the United Nations World Summit in Johannesburg. The tool, developed by BASF and its consulting company rolandberger+partner, can monitor the whole life cycle of a product from raw material mining and energy consumption in the production process to post-treatment; The purpose is to produce products with the best quality and harmless to the environment at the most reasonable price

integration purpose


integrated chemical production bases such as Ludwigshafen in Germany or IPS (integrated petrochemical base) in Nanjing, China, which is under construction, all production plants cooperate with each other in an integrated network (i.e. Verbund in German)

this integrated network organically combines products, energy, waste treatment and logistics, thus benefiting a lot in terms of economy and health. Raw materials and energy are used efficiently, by-products and wastes are reprocessed in Verbund, and the transportation distance of raw materials is minimized. All this has protected the environment, reduced costs, protected the position of

, and strengthened the competitiveness of the company. In Ludwigshafen alone, Verbund can save 500million euros a year

China's growing housing demand can only be met by using modern raw materials economically, environmentally friendly and in line with local demand. BASF's thermal insulation and foaming material styropor is used in housing construction and is produced in Nanjing. In addition to providing heat and cooling with heat insulation function, these products also help to save a lot of energy, which can save about 160000 metric tons of oil energy in the world every year

a clean engine has a longer service life and provides more power with less emissions. BASF's

fuel additive "happy run (Ke should focus on checking the tension machine amplifier unit ropur ò)" meets all the above needs. It can form a protective film on the engine intake valve, which prevents the formation of deposits on the valve, and can "clean" the organic deposits on the intake system. Therefore, the fuel consumption of a vehicle can be reduced by 4%, and the exhaust emission can be reduced by 1.1

tons throughout the service life. Due to more efficient combustion, the pollution level of emissions has also been reduced. Industry research has proved that this additive can reduce emissions:

· up to 20% of hydrocarbons

· up to 24% of carbon monoxide

· 13% of nitrogen oxides in exhaust emissions

sustainable projects in China

BASF has 2600 employees in China, and 2300 new jobs will be created after the new projects are put into operation in 2004 and 2005. These projects will also create times of employment posts for nearby infrastructure and other auxiliary service industries. For example, the IPS project in Nanjing will require 20000 local workers during the peak construction period

in May this year, BASF celebrated the fifth anniversary of the establishment of BASF Sino German research and development fund. The fund has supported 33 scientific research projects and awarded scholarships and bursaries to 548 students from 10 universities; Funded 28 outstanding scholars to attend the International Summer Seminar at BASF headquarters in Ludwigshafen, Germany

recently, the company also introduced its patent project "little chemist" from Germany to Beijing. Through hands-on experience, school-age children will understand the important role of chemistry in daily life and strengthen the protection of abnormal displacement of tensile testing machine? Awareness of environmental protection. When they grow up, they will carry forward the mission of sustainable development

BASF is a multinational chemical company committed to increasing and sustaining its enterprise value through growth and innovation. BASF provides customers with a wide range of high-performance products, including chemicals, plastics, dyes, pigments, dispersions, automotive and industrial coatings, agricultural products, fine chemicals, crude oil and natural gas. BASF's excellent integration strategy, which is called "Verbund" in German, is one of the company's special strengths, ensuring BASF's cost leading position and unique competitive advantage for a long time. All business activities of BASF are carried out under the principle of "sustainable development". In 2001, BASF's sales volume was about 249 billion yuan (32.5 billion euros), with more than 90000 employees worldwide. BASF's shares are listed on the stock exchanges in Frankfurt, London, Zurich, Paris and New York, and the listing names are bas, BFA, BAS, Ba and BF respectively
