Rethink. Recalculate. Reform.

Your way to net zero with sustainable wood binders by BASF


Wood is pure sustainability!

As a renewable raw material, wood is of utmost importance for our climate and has many advantages as a building material and energy supplier. 

BASF looks back on more than 90 years of experience in the wood-based panels industry and offers you a broad portfolio of highly efficient wood binders for various applications and every requirement, no matter how specific.

With our innovative solutions, we are making a lasting mark on the industry as your reliable partner for glues and resins. Our products are found in every process and finishing step in wood processing.

Rethink – we think NEW!

For you, we continuously invest in research and development and offer our entire portfolio biomass-balanced (BMB) in addition to our usual product range. In BASF's raw material mix, we replace fossil with renewable raw materials. This share, which is used for the production of amino resins, is allocated to our end products using a biomass balance process. Formulations and qualities remain the same. A big step toward reducing your carbon footprint!


Our climate protection goal


What is the Biomass Balance approach? 


Our tool for calculating the invidual carbon footprint

In order to achieve a zero carbon footprint (PCF) of a product, various components need to be interlinked. Our sustainable range of amino resins provides the basic building block for the value chain of your products.


We help you achieve your sustainability goals!
With our PCF calculation tool, you will get a comprehensive insight into the sustainability status of your individual purchasing portfolio at BASF and your potential for CO2 savings.
