Data-driven Cultivation Accelerates Development of Variety-specific Cultivation Formulas for BASF Varieties
- BASF is going to take the development of variety-specific cultivation formulas to the next level and accelerate it.
- By applying Hoogendoorn’s IIVO process computer, BASF is able to define the set points of varieties’ growth factors faster and more accurately.
Thank you for 20 years high-wire cucumbers
At BASF we are proud to have played a vital role in the development of high wire cucumbers. In 2020 we celebrated 20 years of successful high-wire cucumber cultivation by sharing stories and video interviews with a diverse range of people around the globe and from different perspectives.
Marcel Huibers about 20 years high wire cucumbers
In the video, he talks about the initial phase, how he experienced this period and how he looks at the future. “The greatest challenge of high wire cultivation in cucumbers is still labor", says Huibers.

BASF presents roadmap to climate neutrality
BASF is setting itself even more ambitious goals on its journey to climate neutrality and wants to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Based on the most recent progress in developing low-emission and CO2-free technologies, the company is also significantly raising its medium-term 2030 target for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions: BASF now wants to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions worldwide by 25 percent compared with 2018 – and to achieve this despite targeted growth and the construction of a large Verbund site in South China. Excluding the effects of the planned growth, this means cutting CO2 emissions in half in the current business by the end of this decade. Overall, BASF plans to invest up to €1 billion by 2025 to reach its new climate target and a further €2 billion to €3 billion by 2030.
BASF, SABIC and Linde join forces to realize the world’s first electrically heated steam cracker furnace
March 24, 2021 – BASF, SABIC and Linde have signed a joint agreement to develop and demonstrate solutions for electrically heated steam cracker furnaces. The partners have already jointly worked on concepts to use renewable electricity instead of the fossil fuel gas typically used for the heating process. With this innovative approach focusing on one of the petrochemical industries’ core processes, the parties strive to offer a promising solution to significantly contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions within the chemical industry.
