Widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications. Catalytic converters for aircraft cabins and fuel inerting. Cathode materials, e-mobility, next-generation technology solutions. Air cleaners that help to improve indoor air quality. Solutions for the most challenging applications. BASF maintains significant diesel research and development facilities around the world. These facilities are being used to develop the technologies needed to meet the extremely low emission levels called for in new emissions regulations. As the global leader in mobile emissions catalysts, BASF has developed a number of specialized catalyst technologies. BASF offers a "full loop" of precious metals products & services. Catalysts for chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. We offer precious metals supply and full-loop management services, including refining to recover precious metals from spent catalysts. The development of fuels and chemicals based on biological feedstocks is critical to a sustainable future and BASF is proud to provide the catalysts to support this industry. BASF has established itself as a front-runner in this field by becoming the global market leader for sodium methylate, the homogeneous catalyst used for biodiesel production. BASF catalyst technologies play a crucial role in the manufacture of a wide range of fine and specialty chemical products including flavor and fragrances, herbicides and pesticides, resins, pigments and dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, and plastic and rubber additives. BASF offers a broad variety of competencies, technologies and products to the fuel cell industry. With our long term experience in the fuel processing area we deliver adsorbents and catalysts needed to generate hydrogen for fuel cell applications with high efficiency. Chemistry plays an important role in the transformation of vegetable oils to products for our daily life. Catalysts are an indispensable tool to make this transformation possible. BASF offers more than 125 years of experience with oxidation catalysts. Each percent of catalyst selectivity advantage creates additional value and reduces COx emission. Solutions for power plants, process industries and more. BASF Catalysts has long been a leader in the development of highly active, robust and selective catalysts and related technologies for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Thermocouples, pyrometers - insights for higher yields. Our contact temperature probes include profile and spike thermocouples, industrial thermocouples, fiberglass thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high-temperature thermocouple wire and cable. We also produce epitaxial thermocouples. Glass Industry Thermocouples have been a specialty of BASF for over 100 years. We have grown with the industry and, as glass technology requirements have expanded and changed over the years. Offering excellent accuracy, resolution, repeatability, and stability, EXACTUS® optical pyrometer technology provides significant performance advantages in non-contact temperature measurement in a practical, rugged and user-friendly design.

HF-200 is a smooth, spherical alumina which has proven to be useful in removing free HF and organic fluorides from HF alkylation product streams. Its excellent physical strength, low abrasion loss, and low silica content help extend the service life and minimize valve plugging.


HF-200XP are promoted alumina spheres for improved fluoride scavenging. By minimizing carbon buildup and coking, they have higher fluoride loading and greater conversion rates. The outstanding properties include uniform ball size, low silica content, and low dusting.


CL-750 is a spherical surface modified adsorbent, custom formulated to provide optimum adsorption of HCL for vapor and liquid phase process streams. It also eliminates problems generated by water washing of process equipment chloride deposits.


CL-760 is a spherical surface, promoted chloride adsorbent. It is customized to provide optimum adsorption of HCl from vapor and liquid phase process streams. Its high macroporosity improves diffusion rates to assure high HCl adsorption capacity.


Proprietary spherical microporous adsorbent, custom formulated to provide optimum adsorption of organic chlorides from vapor and liquid phase process streams.


D-1275E is a quadrilobe extrudate nickel adsorbent. It is primarily used for removing trace amounts of sulfur compounds that escape the hydrodesulfurization process. Its large Surface area provides maximum pick-up of sulfur with a reduced pressure drop across the fixed bed reactor.


DD-431 is a high Surface area activated alumina sphere with tailored pore size distribution to enhance Claus reaction activity through increased diffusion rate and surface activity.


E-315 sorbent is formulated on a proprietary spherical alumina support to remove arsine and sulfur compounds from hydrocarbon streams.


F-200 is a smooth sphere of activated alumina that is an excellent desiccant for a wide variety of liquid and gas drying. Its properties include uniform ball size, high crush strength, low abrasion, and high adsorptive capacity.
