Official Statement by BASF
At BASF we expect ourselves to actively steer future trends and find smart answers for the world’s challenges. As the leading global chemical company, our innovative products have touchpoints to nearly all aspects of live and help to form a more sustainable future. STARTUP AUTOBAHN enables us to gain early access to startups with amazing ideas. Partnering with these super-agile enterprises, fosters our own entrepreneurial spirit and makes us live a “just-do”- instead of a “let’s-see”-mentality. We look for bold endeavors that enrich and/or challenge our products, markets, services and processes. Let’s dream big together. Let’s create the unexpected and let us help you to thrive.
In the chemical industry, certification for raw materials is essential to ensure quality standards. The so-called certificates of analysis (CoAs) can also contain information about sustainability and environmental impact, such as the CO2 footprint. Combining such data with blockchain technology entails tremendous progress since today’s paper-based documents will be replaced with tamper-proof machine-readable records. This is key for a circular economy since the transferred data can be fully traced and the materials’ origin can be reliably identified.
