Uzin Utz and BASF cooperate on climate protection

Saving CO2 together – this is the motto of the cooperation between the Uzin Utz Group, a full-range supplier of flooring systems, and the chemical company BASF.
By using renewables instead of fossil resources alone, Carbon dioxide emissions at Uzin Utz can be reduced by nearly 3,000 tons per year in terms of raw materials.

The driver for more climate protection and sustainability is BASF's biomass balance approach. This is because the Ulm-based construction chemicals manufacturer purchases basic products from BASF that have been produced using renewable raw materials according to the certified biomass balance approach.

CO2 emissions can be reduced by nearly 3,000 tons per year

In this way, the proportion of raw materials binders with biomass-based raw materials origin in the laying systems of Uzin Utz is successively increased, which preserves fossil resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. By using renewables instead of fossil resources alone, CO2 emissions at Uzin Utz can be reduced by nearly 3,000 tons per year in terms of raw materials.

"In the future, we want to make an even greater contribution with regard to a transparent sustainable value chain and further expand our role model function in the industry," explains Philipp Utz, Board Member of the Uzin Utz Group. In a continuous development process, the Ulm-based construction chemicals manufacturer is working closely with BASF to increase the proportion of raw materials of bio-based origin in its products to conserve precious and limited resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

High Solid Binders

High solids are the epitome of high performance and low environmental impact. They are usually the best option where solvent-borne systems would otherwise be the only choice. This book delivers comprehensive knowledge in the field of high solid systems. More especially, it provides an overview of the various classes of binders and ways of transforming them into high solid binders. It lists a broad range of options and approaches for tackling technological and environmental problems. This book addresses the paint and coatings chemists for a better understanding of chemistries and processes involved in film forming hopefully helping in coating design.
