BASF catalysts

From both economical and environmental viewpoints, effective catalysts are of vital importance for the production processes used in the chemical industry. More than 85 percent of BASF products are produced with the aid of catalysts. The focus is on heterogeneous catalysis that utilizes catalyst present in a solid form. Since catalysts are adapted individually to the needs of various processes, close interdisciplinary collaboration is required in catalysis research. Currently, about 250 different catalysts are available in the BASF range. These catalysts are initially used at BASF's own plants and once proven are sold on the free market. More Info at
