Protecting the air we breathe from harmful emissions through innovation. BASF leverages unsurpassed expertise in the development of emission control technologies for a wide range of market applications. 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. BASF offers the widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications in industries such as refining, petrochemical, chemical, and gas processing. The BASF portfolio includes proprietary alumina, silica, alumino-silica gels and a broad line of base metal oxide guard bed materials, including the PuriStar family. At BASF, our Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) catalyst and additive offerings together with our expert technical services build the right solution to create value within any unit’s constraints. The increasing demand for energy and resources is what drives us to develop more sustainable solutions, while addressing the need for energy efficiency and conservation. We partner with those who share our commitment to a healthier, more natural and more affordable future for energy and resources. We are constantly improving the quality and reliability of our products, and strive for even greater efficiency and productivity. BASF Natural Gas experts have a diverse portfolio of products to custom design a solution and help you meet your Natural Gas treatment needs. BASF has been serving the natural gas treatment market for over 60 years. With more than 150 years of experience in metal sourcing, trading, and hedging, we’ve built tangible results for our industrial customers. With more than 100 years of experience in recycling materials, BASF’s end-to-end recycling program is known and trusted around the globe. As a leader in precious-metal thermocouples for many years, BASF recently applied its technological expertise to optical-based temperature measurement. BASF Sorbead® Air adsorbents are alumino silicate gels in the form of hard, spherical beads. They are essential in removing water from compressed air so that the efficiency of chemical processes is not compromised. Sorbead® Air is the most energy saving and environmentally friendly adsorbent available for the air compression industry. Innovative, step-change technology with dual-purpose performance: removal of heavy hydrocarbons and water to cryogenic specifications in a single unit.

Motorcycle Catalysts and Small Engine Catalysts

BASF catalyst technologies, leveraging advanced materials and novel architectural designs, can meet stringent emission standards emission standards with low precious metal content, even for carbureted engines.

Carbureted motorcycle engines with broad air/fuel excursions can be challenging to bring into compliance with Euro 3 emission standards. Advanced catalyst technology from BASF offers a cost-effective approach to meet this challenge.

A carbureted motorcycle emissions system can consist of two catalysts: a front catalyst is placed near the engine to enhance light-off and reduce cold-start emissions, while a rear catalyst is located further downstream in the exhaust system to convert remaining pollutants.

BASF catalyst technologies, leveraging advanced materials and novel architectural designs, can meet motorcycle Euro 3 emission standards with low precious metal content, even for carbureted engines.

Small Engine Catalysts

To meet emission regulations. BASF small engine catalysts are designed to cut pollution from two- and four-stroke engines that run on gasoline fuel. More than half of the hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions from these engines can be eliminated in most applications.

Small, two- and four-stroke engines contribute signifi cantly to air pollution. In response, governments are implementing emission regulations to improve air quality. For the specifi cs on these standards, visit: www.meca.org. BASF catalysts can help to cost-effectively meet these regulations.
