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. We are constantly improving the quality and reliability of our products, and strive for even greater efficiency and productivity. BASF Natural Gas experts have a diverse portfolio of products to custom design a solution and help you meet your Natural Gas treatment needs. BASF has been serving the natural gas treatment market for over 60 years. With more than 150 years of experience in metal sourcing, trading, and hedging, we’ve built tangible results for our industrial customers.

Selective Catalytic NOx Reduction (DeNOx) & DeDioxine Abatement

BASF offers catalysts for the selective catalytic reduction of NOx from stationary source gases. The DeNOx process was developed by BASF in the 60's and the V2O5 catalyst was developed in the 70's. With the development of the dioxin catalyst, we have focused attention on a combination of DeNOx and dioxin catalysts for waste incineration plants as a major source of emissions. It is the only process in which pollutants are destroyed without giving rise to any residues which require disposal.

DeNOx Abatement
