BASF will exhibit its ground-breaking emission catalyst coatings at the IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair, which is being held from September 20 to 27, 2012, in Hannover, Germany.
BASF’s emissions control coatings are designed to fulfill Euro VI regulations for heavy duty diesel vehicles. The emission catalyst products to be displayed include Selective catalytic reduction catalysts, catalytic particle filters (catalyzed soot filter), and diesel oxidation catalysts for diesel engines. The company produces these emission catalyst coatings at its catalyst production facility situated in Nienburg, Germany.
BASF’s Vice President for Mobile Emissions Catalysts, Xavier Susterac stated that the company is happy to facilitate customers fulfill Euro VI regulations, thus allowing for cleaner atmosphere for a better, sustainable future. Taking into account increasingly stringent emissions regulations, the company has earmarked a double-digit million euro sum to increase the production capacity of its Nienburg facility in order to meet the rising demand for advanced, low-cost emission control systems.
BASF Global Key Account Manager, Peter Macnair commented that the company is working closely with its customers to offer state-of-the-art technology for their success.
BASF’s Catalysts division, a provider of environmental and process catalysts, offers development technologies for air protection, fuel production and for manufacturing plastics, chemicals and other products such as advanced battery materials. The IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair is the world’s major exhibition for logistics, transportation and mobility.
