Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) Additives for petroleum refiners

Additives allow refiners to optimize product selectivities and cost-effectively reach environmental regulations without a large catalyst overhaul.

BASF works to help refiners access maximum unit performance through continuous innovations in petroleum refining. Our wide variety of FCC additives demonstrates BASF’s commitment to advancing refining technologies. We offer both performance-enhancing and environmental-compliance additives.
