BASF announces highly efficient and sustainable product innovations in its chemical catalysts portfolio

September 27, 2021 - BASF introduces a range of new catalysts which will be presented during the upcoming European Petrochemical Associations Conference (EPCA) in a series of webinars. The new offer includes catalysts to produce isopropyl alcohol (IPA) more efficiently, a crucial ingredient in hand sanitizers, a much-needed consumer product during the Covid-19 pandemic. BASF’s high performance oxo alcohol catalyst Ni 3354 E combines high activity with exceptionally high selectivity. The catalyst has been tested and qualified to produce IPA through hydrogenation of acetone. Ni 3354 E allows IPA producers to operate at high throughput rates and temperatures without a drop in selectivity thus increasing productivity.
