BASF researchers receive R&D award for catalyst designed to meet the latest heavy-duty diesel emission regulations

ISELIN, NJ, November 2, 2018 – The Research and Development Council of New Jersey recognized BASF inventors Kenneth E. Voss, Fabien A. Rioult, M. Shahjahan Kazi, and Stanley A. Roth with the prestigious 2018 Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award for outstanding environmental contributions.

The team of researchers developed a novel diesel oxidation catalyst design which utilizes less precious metal, while significantly improving performance. Diesel oxidation catalysts for heavy duty diesel engine emission reduction are required to remove hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide from the exhaust. At the same time, the catalysts provide additional functionality to facilitate removal of soot and nitrogen oxides by the downstream soot filter and selective catalytic reduction catalyst.

With this catalyst in the front of the emission control system, it is possible to meet the most stringent of current emission control regulations. As this catalyst is currently used on-road in all major markets, the positive impact on air quality could have global reach. Moreover, this catalyst significantly broadens the temperature region to implement removal of soot and prevent buildup of backpressure on the engine thereby reducing fuel consumption.

“It is a great honor for BASF and our inventors, as this award demonstrates that we continuously develop innovative technologies enabling our customers to cost-effectively meet emission regulations,” said Peter Walther, Senior Vice President, Heterogeneous Catalysis Research at BASF. “This novel diesel oxidation catalyst provides significant benefit for air quality and fuel economy supporting BASF’s commitment to clean air and sustainability.”
