What do we do?

In a world where data is the new oil, the path we're pursuing is digital. We’re driving the digital transformation of the chemical industry by creating an integrated, networked value chain, optimizing production processes, and boosting our innovative strength. And we’re using new business models to set ourselves apart from our competitors and to drive transformation.

Our innovations

Here at BASF, virtual modeling and computer simulations go hand in hand with real-life laboratory experiments. Our supercomputer, Quriosity, provides us with an efficient way of solving complicated problems and enables greater innovation to be achieved in a shorter period of time.

For automotive paints, we use real time data from our customers’ painting lines so that the colour can be adjusted to meet customer requirements as closely as possible. This enables us to ensure that the colour of the car is just right.

At our production plants, predictive maintenance technology forecasts the functional state of critical parts and components. Sensors provide live data about the operating conditions. This data is modeled and then evaluated using special analysis software, which also takes into account historical process data.

The online application Maglis® is an intelligent network of data, technologies, and people. The platform helps agricultural companies to take smarter approaches to farming, to market their produce more effectively, and to add value to their lives and businesses.
