We Create Chemistry

BASF is the world’s leading chemical company. We create chemistry. BASF products go into things you likely use daily, such as laundry detergent, coolers and refrigerators, cosmetics and personal care items such as toothpaste and bodywash, pharmaceuticals, water purification, automobiles, tennis shoes and other textiles, and more. At our Seneca, SC site, we have a fundamental focus on sustainability, as a site that recycles specialty chemical catalysts, such as old catalytic converters from vehicles, which means that fewer metals needed throughout everyday life need to be extracted from the earth. Specialty chemical catalysts and precious metal chemicals are used to produce a wide variety of products, including pharmaceuticals, fragrances, herbicides, fertilizers, plastics, automotive emission catalysts and more.
