BASF showcased new circular fiber solutions at Techtextil, featuring a jacket made from recycled polyamide 6 (PA6) derived from textile waste. The lining, zippers, velcro fasteners, and buttons are also made from recycled PA6. BASF’s chemical recycling technology allows for textile-to-textile recycling of industrial waste.

Drop-ins

The Ultramid Ccycled product line utilizes raw materials from chemical recycling of hard-to-recycle plastic waste, including end-of-life tires. BASF incorporates this recycled material into the production process at the beginning of their network, using a mass balance approach to reduce the need for fossil-based raw materials.

Ultramid Biomass Balance (BMB) is a sustainable product that allows for the use of biowaste raw materials in manufacturing. Renewable resources replace fossil fuels at the start of production and are allocated to Ultramid BMB products through a mass balance chain.

Elastollan, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), is utilized in the textile industry for its elasticity and mechanical strength. It is used for mono and multi-filaments, as well as coating polyester. Bio-based and certified biomass-balanced Elastollan grades offer the same properties.

Traceable blockchain platform 

BASF has introduced a transparent blockchain platform in collaboration with Certified Sustainable FiberMax partners in Greece within a 250-kilometer radius. The platform, technology by Bext 360° and powered by Hyperledger, allows brands to integrate data like carbon footprint into their supply chains through an API.

Upcycling 

BASF offers low-emission fiber bonding technologies like Acrodur, acForm, and Acronal that can transform reclaimed materials like denim or waste materials such as coffee grounds and paper cups into new products.
