Environmental protection strategies
Environmental protection measures can be taken at different points in development and production processes: Endof- pipe environmental protection occurs at the end of the actual production process, e.g. using filters or water treatment plants. It can be very effective, but it has its limits. Innovation-integrated environmental protection tries to find the most eco-friendly option for products and processes during the research and development phase. Production-integrated environmental protection on the other hand considers the by-products that are always created and attempts to link processes to the ensure optimum use of by-products. BASF favors innovationand production-integrated environmental protection.
