BASF to Showcase Innovative Technologies at POWER-GEN International 2011

BASF will showcase solutions to help the power industry deliver cost-efficient and reliable power generation, while meeting environmental regulations, at POWER-GEN International 2011, at booth 2731. More than 19,000 people are expected to attend this industry conference, which is being held 13-15 December in Las Vegas, Nevada, US.

BASF will showcase a number of products at POWER-GEN 2011, including:

NOxCAT™ AD Series ammonia destruction catalysts

BASF’s innovative family of ammonia destruction catalysts includes patented catalysts for controlling ammonia emissions from natural gas fired turbines and stationary engines, as well as coal-fired power plants.

"The NOxCAT AD Series catalysts offer reliable ammonia emissions control," said Stan Mack, business manager, BASF Clean Air group. "They are designed for fluctuating emissions and demanding injection schemes."

BASF has successfully used these ammonia destruction catalysts at two separate facilities, where ammonia emissions were controlled to less than 10mg/Nm3 (99% DRE) with no net impact on NOx (nitrogen oxides). The NOxCAT AD catalyst enabled stable control of the existing SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) systems while utilizing the previous catalyst footprint for minimal pressure drop penalty. BASF presented the results of these two successful applications of NOxCAT AD Series catalysts at the Air Quality VIII conference, held 24-27 October 2011 in Arlington, Virginia.
