BASF launches AdBlue ZeroPCF with reduced carbon footprint

AdBlue with a certified product carbon footprint of <0.05 based on a mass balance approach

  • By ICN Bureau | March 26, 2024

BASF is now the first manufacturer to offer AdBlue as a ZeroPCF variant with a certified CO2 footprint (product carbon footprint = PCF) of <0.05 kg per kilogram of AdBlue®. This value includes the amount of CO2 emitted in connection with the product during production up to the site gate (“cradle-to-gate”). The market standard for fossil products in Europe is at least 0.4 kg.

The PCF reduction of AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is achieved through the use of renewable energies and raw materials based on a mass balance approach and has been certified by TÜV Rheinland on the basis of ISO standard 14067:2018. REDcert2, a certification system for biomass, also certifies that AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF meets the required mass balance specifications.

“There is an increasing demand for products with reduced carbon footprint in the industries. With AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF, we offer an AdBlue solution for the transportation industry that meets this trend. In the coming months, we will also continue to expand our portfolio of new sustainable products step by step,” explained Dr. Jens Aßmann, Vice President Nitrogen Based Chemicals & Amino Resins at BASF.

AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is a further step on the sustainability roadmap of BASF’s Monomers division which was announced last year. This envisages developing at least one circular solution for every major product line by 2025. “Sustainable products are playing an increasingly important role in all customer industries. We support our customers in achieving their own sustainability goals with our broad portfolio of solutions with reduced PCF,” said Aßmann.
