Widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications. Catalytic converters for aircraft cabins and fuel inerting. Cathode materials, e-mobility, next-generation technology solutions. Air cleaners that help to improve indoor air quality. Solutions for the most challenging applications. 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. As the global leader in mobile emissions catalysts, BASF has developed a number of specialized catalyst technologies. BASF offers a "full loop" of precious metals products & services. Catalysts for chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. We offer precious metals supply and full-loop management services, including refining to recover precious metals from spent catalysts. The development of fuels and chemicals based on biological feedstocks is critical to a sustainable future and BASF is proud to provide the catalysts to support this industry. BASF has established itself as a front-runner in this field by becoming the global market leader for sodium methylate, the homogeneous catalyst used for biodiesel production. BASF catalyst technologies play a crucial role in the manufacture of a wide range of fine and specialty chemical products including flavor and fragrances, herbicides and pesticides, resins, pigments and dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, and plastic and rubber additives. BASF offers a broad variety of competencies, technologies and products to the fuel cell industry. With our long term experience in the fuel processing area we deliver adsorbents and catalysts needed to generate hydrogen for fuel cell applications with high efficiency. Chemistry plays an important role in the transformation of vegetable oils to products for our daily life. Catalysts are an indispensable tool to make this transformation possible. BASF offers more than 125 years of experience with oxidation catalysts. Each percent of catalyst selectivity advantage creates additional value and reduces COx emission. Solutions for power plants, process industries and more. BASF Catalysts has long been a leader in the development of highly active, robust and selective catalysts and related technologies for the destruction of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Thermocouples, pyrometers - insights for higher yields. Our contact temperature probes include profile and spike thermocouples, industrial thermocouples, fiberglass thermocouples, furnace thermocouples, and high-temperature thermocouple wire and cable. We also produce epitaxial thermocouples. Glass Industry Thermocouples have been a specialty of BASF for over 100 years. We have grown with the industry and, as glass technology requirements have expanded and changed over the years. Offering excellent accuracy, resolution, repeatability, and stability, EXACTUS® optical pyrometer technology provides significant performance advantages in non-contact temperature measurement in a practical, rugged and user-friendly design.

Stationary Environmental Catalysts

At BASF, we understand that our customers must not only comply with environmental standards, but also must keep their operations in service, readily and cost effectively. To successfully meet this challenge, BASF offers years of experience developing innovative solutions that deliver proven results. We are committed to providing our customers with cost-effective solutions to the most complex emissions control problems. We are constantly developing new technologies to meet ever more stringent emission requirements to help our customers to be more successful.

Thousands of our high performance, low maintenance environmental catalysts are in use around the world, helping industrial leaders in power generation, process industries and other applications, reduce pollutants. Our solutions include CO oxidation catalysts (CO catalysts) to remove carbon monoxide (CO), VOC catalysts (VOC oxidation catalysts) to remove Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), SCR catalysts (Selective Catalytic Reduction catalysts) to remove NOx (nitrogen oxides) and ammonia destruction catalysts to remove ammonia.

BASF is the leading oxidation catalyst supplier to the power generation industry.

We have been servicing the power generation industry for over 20 years with over 700 units operating or under construction. BASF customers value our experience and technical expertise as the premier supplier of oxidation catalyst solutions to the power generation industry.

Our breadth of experience encompasses virtually every make, model and turbine configuration. Our R&D, application and project engineering staff expertise ensure maximum performance for both new source applications and replacement catalyst for existing applications.

Nearly all of the power generation oxidation catalysts that we have supplied are still running. More than 300 units are six to ten years old and over 200 units are greater than ten years old. No one else in the industry approaches the durability or number of installations of BASF oxidation catalysts for the power generation industry.
