Emissions from diesel engines are of increasing concern to government regulators around the world. Buses, trucks, mining vehicles, power generators and other diesel-based equipment are the source of harmful hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) that pollute the air and are linked to respiratory diseases.

Regulations on new vehicles are important, but since diesel engines can last 20-30 years, emissions from older diesel engines must be addressed as well. That’s where BASF’s retrofitting technologies come in.

BASF is a leading supplier of cost-efficient diesel-emission-control technologies for the retrofit market, including Diesel Oxidation Catalysts and Diesel Particulate Filters, which are in use today on thousands of trucks and buses around the world.
