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.

Catalysts for Diesel Engines

Emissions from diesel engines are of increasing concern to government regulators around the world. Cars, trucks and off-road equipment that run on diesel fuel are the source of harmful hydrocarbons (HC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) that pollute the air and are linked to respiratory diseases.

We are a leading supplier of cost-efficient, effective diesel-emission-control technologies.

These technologies are in use today on most of the diesel vehicles produced around the world.

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.

Catalyst technologies for diesel engines include:



These technologies can be combined to meet emission regulations. To learn more, view our article below.

Diesel Oxidation Catalysts  (DOC)

Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC)

BASF's Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technology controls emissions of hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM) from diesel vehicles.

More
Lean NOx Trap (LNT)

Lean NOx Trap (LNT)

On one substrate a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and a Lean NOx Trap (LNT) are combined. This component has the high HC and CO removal efficiency of a fully formulated DOC, with the ability of a LNT to trap and reduce NOx.

More
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

BASF Catalysts technologies enable customers to meet tightening NOx emission standards around the world.

More
Selective Catalytic Reduction on Filter (SCRoF)

Selective Catalytic Reduction on Filter (SCRoF)

SCR on Filter controls NOx (nitrogen oxides) and PM (particulate matter or soot) emissions from diesel engines, on a single substrate.

More
Ammonia Oxidation Catalysts (AMOx)

Ammonia Oxidation Catalysts (AMOx)

BASF’s patented AMOX ammonia oxidation catalysts are designed to prevent ammonia breakthrough or slip in SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) systems.

More
Catalyzed Soot Filters (CSF)

Catalyzed Soot Filters (CSF)

BASF's Catalyzed Soot Filters (CSF) (also called diesel particulate filters or DPF) are designed to reduce emissions of particulate matter (PM) from diesel engines.

More
Multi-functional Catalyzed Soot Filters

Multi-functional Catalyzed Soot Filters

The CS4F (multi-functional catalyzed soot filter) with a LNT is a solution to meet strict Euro6 emission regulations.
