Widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications. Catalytic converters for aircraft cabins and fuel inerting. Cathode materials, e-mobility, next-generation technology solutions. Air cleaners that help to improve indoor air quality. Solutions for the most challenging applications. BASF maintains significant diesel research and development facilities around the world. These facilities are being used to develop the technologies needed to meet the extremely low emission levels called for in new emissions regulations. As the global leader in mobile emissions catalysts, BASF has developed a number of specialized catalyst technologies. BASF offers a "full loop" of precious metals products & services. Catalysts for chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. We offer precious metals supply and full-loop management services, including refining to recover precious metals from spent catalysts. The development of fuels and chemicals based on biological feedstocks is critical to a sustainable future and BASF is proud to provide the catalysts to support this industry. BASF has established itself as a front-runner in this field by becoming the global market leader for sodium methylate, the homogeneous catalyst used for biodiesel production. BASF catalyst technologies play a crucial role in the manufacture of a wide range of fine and specialty chemical products including flavor and fragrances, herbicides and pesticides, resins, pigments and dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, and plastic and rubber additives. Chemistry plays an important role in the transformation of vegetable oils to products for our daily life. Catalysts are an indispensable tool to make this transformation possible. BASF offers more than 125 years of experience with oxidation catalysts. Each percent of catalyst selectivity advantage creates additional value and reduces COx emission. Solutions for power plants, process industries and more. BASF Catalysts has long been a leader in the development of highly active, robust and selective catalysts and related technologies for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Thermocouples, pyrometers - insights for higher yields. Our contact temperature probes include high temperature thermocouples, platinum thermocouples, noble metal thermocouples, thermocouples for the glass industry, profile and spike thermocouples for diffusion furnaces, high temperature industrial thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high temperature thermocouple wire and cable. A specialty of BASF for many years is the glass thermocouple. We have grown with the industry and, as glass technology requirements have expanded and changed over the years. Offering excellent accuracy, resolution, repeatability, and stability, EXACTUS® optical pyrometer technology provides significant performance advantages in non-contact temperature measurement in a practical, rugged and user-friendly design.

Durasorb™

Customer-Tailored Solutions for Natural Gas Treatment

Durasorb is our innovation platform for the natural gas processing industry. Durasorb is a customer-tailored solution that combines superior adsorbents with BASF’s expert designs. The new technology uses proprietary design software to calculate the performance of the adsorbents in all parts of the vessel and maximize the overall performance and life of the bed. Based on design calculations, BASF natural gas experts choose the ideal combination of adsorbents out of the comprehensive BASF portfolio. The resulting installation ensures more efficient removal of contaminants and solves regeneration-reflux problems.

BASF Products for Natural Gas Treatment

BASF Natural Gas experts have a diverse portfolio of products to custom design a solution to meet your Natural Gas Treatment needs. Innovative products solve problems at the plant by removing impurities and providing reflux resistance to increase bedlife. Durasorb combined with OASE® Gas Treatment technology, provide the full LNG pre-treatment package.
