Did you know there can be 5x more air pollution inside your house than outside of it? Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce risk of indoor health concerns. BASF offers the widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications in industries such as refining, petrochemical, chemical, and gas processing. The BASF portfolio includes proprietary alumina, silica, alumino-silica gels and a broad line of base metal oxide guard bed materials, including the PuriStar family. At BASF, our Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) catalyst and additive offerings together with our expert technical services build the right solution to create value within any unit’s constraints. The increasing demand for energy and resources is what drives us to develop more sustainable solutions, while addressing the need for energy efficiency and conservation. We partner with those who share our commitment to a healthier, more natural and more affordable future for energy and resources. We are constantly improving the quality and reliability of our products, and strive for even greater efficiency and productivity. BASF Natural Gas experts have a diverse portfolio of products to custom design a solution and help you meet your Natural Gas treatment needs. BASF has been serving the natural gas treatment market for over 60 years. With more than 150 years of experience in metal sourcing, trading, and hedging, we’ve built tangible results for our industrial customers. With more than 100 years of experience in recycling materials, BASF’s end-to-end recycling program is known and trusted around the globe. As a leader in precious-metal thermocouples for many years, BASF recently applied its technological expertise to optical-based temperature measurement. BASF Sorbead® Air adsorbents are alumino silicate gels in the form of hard, spherical beads. They are essential in removing water from compressed air so that the efficiency of chemical processes is not compromised. Sorbead® Air is the most energy saving and environmentally friendly adsorbent available for the air compression industry.

About Mobile Emissions Catalysts

Arguably the most important pollution abatement device ever invented, the catalytic converter is a key component of most new car engines in the world today. Without them, air quality in and around most cities would be far worse than it is today.

BASF pioneered the development of the first catalytic converters on 1975-model cars, and one year later introduced a second major innovation: the modern, “three-way” catalyst, which is now capable of destroying over 90% of hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) produced by car engines.

Since its inception, BASF’s three-way catalyst technology has destroyed over 1 billion tons of HC and NOx and CO before they ever reached the atmosphere.

BASF continues to lead the way in the development and commercialization of advanced emissions catalysts for both gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles.

BASF works closely with our automotive customers to adapt leading-edge technologies to meet their needs for high performance and cost, and helps them to comply with tighter environmental regulations around the world.

The focus of the BASF Emissions Professional is always on innovative, cost-effective solutions to meet the needs of customers. With a creative, open, responsible and entrepreneurial approach we help make our customer more successful.
