BASF secures renewable energy for catalyst plant in Poland

  • 100% renewable energy to power the Mobile Emissions Catalysts production plant in Środa Śląska
  • Energy company PGE Obrot S.A. named as the new supplier

August 25, 2021 - BASF Polska has signed a two-year contract with PGE Obrót S.A. to purchase electricity produced entirely from renewable energy sources - mainly wind - to power its Mobile Emissions Catalysts plant in Środa Śląska.

“We set ambitious environmental objectives in BASF to achieve climate neutrality by 2050,” said Katarzyna Byczkowska, Managing Director of BASF Polska. “However, to make it a reality, global goals must also translate into local strategies. By signing this new contract, we will now cover 100% of our electrical demand in Środa Śląska from renewable sources.”

“BASF is committed to drive the energy transformation towards affordable and clean renewable energy sources for our operations,” said Daniel Wussow, Vice President Mobile Emissions Catalysts, EMEA. “By increasing our use of renewable energies, we will significantly reduce CO2 emissions in Poland. We are also supporting our customers to reach their sustainability goals as the European automotive industry demands sustainability management from their suppliers along the entire value chain.”

The BASF Mobile Emissions Catalysts plant in Środa Śląska is one of the main plants manufacturing catalysts in Europe and provides modern solutions for exhaust gas treatment for light duty and heavy duty segments.
