LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF launches its latest innovation to control carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from natural gas power plants. Camet ST sulphur tolerant oxidation catalyst builds on the company’s standard Camet oxidation catalyst technology, while also improving the ability of the catalyst to perform in the presence of most forms of sulphur contamination.

In extended full-scale trials, BASF Camet ST sulphur tolerant catalyst maintains performance while the competitive catalyst rapidly deactivated. Camet ST is currently deployed in several commercial units where sulphur contamination previously resulted in excessive downtime and frequent cleaning.

“The natural gas supply has become more variable with the inclusion of fracked and biogas components, resulting in significant deactivation of emission control catalyst systems. Oxidation catalysts have shown to deactivate very quickly in the presence of sulphur. Therefore, we developed, tested, and are now launching Camet ST sulphur tolerant catalyst to handle very high levels of sulphur with minimal deactivation,” said Ying Wu, general manager of clean air for BASF.

“Our breadth of catalyst experience encompasses virtually every makes, model and turbine configuration. Our R&D, application engineering and project engineering expertise contribute to the maximum performance of Camet ST sulphur tolerant oxidation catalyst in both new source applications and as a replacement catalyst in existing applications,” added Wu.
