Process Catalysts

BASF is the global leader in process catalysts. We provide fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) refinery catalysts, custom catalysts and chemical catalysts such as hydrogenation catalysts, dehydrogenation catalysts and oxidation catalysts - to name a few.

Our catalyst products are a vital and strategic part of process technology. Catalysis is a process in which the rate of a chemical reaction is increased by a specific catalyst offering. Each heterogeneous catalyst is specific to a given process and can be tailored to provide a given set of end results – speed of reaction or process, enhanced product attributes, and the selectivity of end products. Choosing the right catalyst for the process is a critical factor for success. Catalysts plays a crucial role in 90% of all commercially produced chemical products.

Customers are the heart of our business. Everyday we strive to help our customers become more successful. The very nature of our business lends itself to the creation and maintenance of customer relationships built on a foundation of trust and knowledge.  When you need the right catalyst for the right reaction...trust BASF.
