Formaldehyde Removal

Formaldehyde is a common indoor air pollutant found in many homes and buildings. It is a colorless gas, and at elevated levels is highly irritating to the eyes, nose, and lungs. Exposure to formaldehyde may cause adverse health effects.

Formaldehyde can be released into the home from many indoor sources, including plywood, particleboard, and other pressed wood products used in home construction and furnishings, and many consumer products.

BASF has developed catalysts for use in air cleaners to remove formaldehyde from indoor air. This technology is based on BASF’s many years of experience developing solutions for clean air.
