Encina Development Group and BASF Sign Long-Term Supply Agreement for Circular Chemical Feedstocks

A new partnership between Encina Development Group and BASF is set to revolutionize the production of textiles using circular chemical feedstocks. The agreement will see BASF integrating more chemically recycled, circular-based raw materials into its production processes, reducing the amount of fossil feedstocks required to create industrial-grade circular chemicals. This move is expected to help global manufacturing customers meet their renewable content goals and enable the use and reuse of plastics in various industries. Encina's technology, which breaks waste plastics down to the molecular level, is derived from end-of-life plastics otherwise bound for landfills or incineration. According to Thomas Ohlinger, VP of Traded Products at BASF, this partnership will drive BASF's transformation by increasing recycling-based feedstocks to offer more Ccycled products to customers in industries such as packaging, textiles, and automotive. Encina CEO, David Roesser, PhD, believes that this partnership demonstrates that circularity is not just a concept but a tangible reality within our reach.
