Energy efficiency 

Optimum thermal insulation with Styrodur® makes an important contribution to reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which are regarded as the main cause of the greenhouse effect. Added to this is the positive effect that investments in comprehensive thermal insulation measures pay off for the building owner in the short term thanks to significantly lower energy consumption. Styrodur® thus makes a decisive contribution to the eco-efficiency of your building project. In addition, thermal insulation with Styrodur® stands for thermal comfort, which contributes significantly to a healthy living climate.

Air as cell gas - a concrete contribution to environmental protection

As the world's largest chemical company, BASF occupies a leading position in the research and development of environmentally friendly insulation solutions. Out of this responsibility, BASF was the first company in the market to switch completely to low-emission CO2 technology. In 2000, Styrodur® was awarded the Environmental Prize of the Federation of German Industries (BDI) for this achievement.



The CO2 balance of Styrodur®

During the production of one square meter of Styrodur® , 1 to 15 kg of CO2 are emitted, depending on panel thickness and raw density. In various applications, Styrodur® prevents CO2 emissions of 6 to 7 tons per square meter of insulated area over the course of 50 years. Conclusion: a positive eco-balance.
