Chemical producer BASF and planning, procurement, construction and servicing of chemical plants company,  thyssenkrupp Uhde has announced their cooperation in the marketing, development and process design for thyssenkrupp Uhde’s leading EnviNOx technology.

BASF will supply its high-performance catalysts to thyssenkrupp Uhde, enabling their customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions more effectively.

EnviNOx removes more than 99% of all N2O and NOx emissions, as at BASF’s site in Ludwigshafen, Germany, where a new unit successfully started up in the second half of 2022.

Detlef Ruff, senior vice president, process catalysts at BASF says: ‘The combination of the expertise of both companies in the field of N2O abatement catalysts and processes is really going to make a difference in our joint goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our research and development teams are working to design and produce catalysts that are highly effective, durable, and sustainable.’

‘We are partnering with BASF to keep making significant improvements on our EnviNOx technology…This partnership brings additional benefits for our customers, as well as to the environment as a whole, by providing high-quality, cost-effective solutions to address complex environmental challenges,’ adds Ralph Kleinschmidt, head of technology and innovation at thyssenkrupp Uhde.
