Representatives from 20 international chemical companies, including scientific experts and Chief Technology Officers, attended a workshop at the joint invitation of BASF's CEO Martin Brudermüller and the World Economic Forum. With the declared aim of speeding up progress on climate protection, the participants discussed CO2-reduction technologies and new collaborative approaches.

“We all want to further significantly reduce CO2 emissions at our plants,” said host Martin Brudermüller. “To do this, we have to develop and implement groundbreaking technologies. This process can be very time-consuming, and we no longer have that much time. The Forum and BASF are hosting the industry to think about how they cooperate and explore ways to accelerate technology development.”

A central goal of BASF’s strategy is to achieve CO2-neutral growth until 2030. The company is continuously optimizing existing processes, gradually replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, and explores low-emission production processes.

Companies involved in the meeting include: Air Liquide, BP, Clariant, Covestro, Dow Chemical Company, Eni, Henkel, LANXESS, Occidental Petroleum, Repsol, Royal DSM, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Sibur, Solvay, Total.
