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.
