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. BASF offers a broad variety of competencies, technologies and products to the fuel cell industry. With our long term experience in the fuel processing area we deliver adsorbents and catalysts needed to generate hydrogen for fuel cell applications with high efficiency. 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 profile and spike thermocouples, industrial thermocouples, fiberglass thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high-temperature thermocouple wire and cable. We also produce epitaxial thermocouples. Glass Industry Thermocouples have been a specialty of BASF for over 100 years. 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.

Aircraft Cabin Ozone Converters

BASF's Deoxo offerings are low-cost, lightweight, easy-to-install units that help maintain a healthy cabin environment and provide improved comfort for passengers, pilots and flight attendants.

The air at high altitude contains significant levels of ozone. If left unchecked, atmospheric ozone enters aircraft through air conditioning ducts. Ozone exposure is known to cause adverse health effects: Some symptoms attributed to "jet lag" or "air sickness" may actually be caused by ozone. Persons exposed to ozone can experience headaches, fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pains, coughing, and irritation of the eyes, nose or throat.

BASF also offers Deoxo technology to reduce both harmful ozone and volatile organic compounds [VOC] in aircraft cabin air. This technology improves passenger perception of air quality by removing certain hydrocarbon compounds responsible for unpleasant odors such as jet fuel smell in the aircraft cabin while at the gate, taxiing and during take-off.

Since the FAA first set ozone standards, Deoxo catalytic converters have been the number one choice of airlines and aircraft manufacturers for many reasons:

  • Efficient ozone conversion — Eliminate adverse health effects for passengers or crew
  • Low pressure drop — Keeps energy costs low and allows use in existing air systems
  • Lightweight and long life — Ensures economical operating costs
  • Small size — Allows for quick and easy installation
  • Proven technology — BASF has over 30 years of experience in ozone converter technology
