Masdar has chosen BASF to supplying building materials and system solutions for construction on the zero-carbon Masdar City, it was announced today.

BASF, also known as The Chemical Company, will offer solutions for sustainable and energy-efficient construction at the development.

“BASF will be an invaluable partner for Masdar and the development of Masdar City,” said Masdar CEO Dr Sultan Al Jaber.

“We’ve made a bold commitment to advance the use of sustainable materials in urban developments; tapping into BASF’s expertise in this field takes us one step closer to that goal.”

Masdar City, which is currently in the first phase of construction, is a hub for new technologies and international researchers.

Earlier this month, CW reported that Swiss Village Association will create a cleantech neighbourhood in the city and will break ground on the project by 2010.

The Chemical Company will also open an office in Masdar City once it is completed.

“By cooperating with Masdar in the construction of Masdar City, we underline our commitment to energy-efficient, climate-friendly construction,” said BASF president for the European region Dr Walter Seufert.

BASF develops products that help to save energy as well as avoid greenhouse gas emissions. These include products made from polystyrene and polyurethane, which will be used for the manufacture of insulating foams for thermal insulation of buildings at Masdar City.
