Did you know there can be 5x more air pollution inside your house than outside of it?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce risk of indoor health concerns.

Increasingly, homeowners, landlords, and manufacturers are recognizing the threat posed by poor IAQ and understanding that improving confined space or indoor air quality can have substantial benefits – including improved health, comfort, safety, and productivity.

Delivering over 50 years' of experience

BASF has over 50 years of experience in developing solutions for clean air, including the invention of the catalytic converter, which removes gaseous pollutants from automobile engine exhaust. We offer innovative, emission-control catalyst technologies for the abatement of carbon monoxide, VOC, nitrogen oxides, ammonia, particulate, ozone, and more. These optimize performance, minimize capital, and ensure regulatory compliance.

Air cleaners are a popular strategy to improve IAQ. Some are highly effective at particle removal—however removing gaseous pollutants can be a challenge. We bring added value based upon a market-driven, sustainable business model, successfully balancing both environmental and economic interests.

BASF develops intelligent solutions for air quality over a wide range of applications—enabling clean air for a healthier, more sustainable future.
