BASF introduces PremAir BLD catalyst for improving indoor air quality

  • Innovation addresses the market need for a thorough and long-life mitigation technology to remove ozone from indoor environments 

ISELIN, NJ, May 30, 2018 – BASF launched its latest catalyst innovation, PremAir® BLD, to remove indoor ozone pollution. The new catalyst has been shown in field trials to rapidly remove ozone at room temperatures with high conversion efficiency, while maintaining a high level of performance over a longer period of time than existing market technologies. 

Breathing ozone can trigger a variety of health problems, particularly for children, the elderly, and people of all ages who have lung diseases, such as asthma. 

“The high ozone removal efficiency of this new technology provides a healthy indoor living environment,“ said Ying Wu, General Manager of BASF’s Clean Air Business. “PremAir BLD also has a long lifetime, which can reduce the cost associated with frequent filter changes.”

PremAir BLD is available in a variety of sizes and shapes and is easily customized for various portable or large-scale air purifier designs, HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) systems, and other types of ventilation systems or air handling units. 

“PremAir BLD complements our Formaldpure™ catalyst that removes formaldehyde,” Wu added. “PremAir BLD and Formaldpure can be used together to provide a solution to remove both ozone and formaldehyde from indoor environments.”

BASF has more than 50 years of experience in developing solutions for clean air, including the invention of the automotive catalytic converter which removes pollutants from engine exhaust. The company offers advanced emission control catalyst technologies for the abatement of many harmful pollutants.
