BASF launches oxidation catalyst for natural gas power plants
BASF today announced its latest innovation to control carbon monoxide emissions from natural gas power plants. Camet ST sulfur 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 sulfur contamination.
“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,” said Ying Wu, General Manager of Clean Air for BASF. “Oxidation catalysts have shown to deactivate very quickly in the presence of sulfur. Therefore, we developed, tested, and are now launching Camet ST sulfur tolerant catalyst to handle very high levels of sulfur with minimal deactivation.”
Camet ST is currently deployed in several commercial units where sulfur contamination previously resulted in excessive downtime and frequent cleaning.
“Our breadth of catalyst experience encompasses virtually every make, model and turbine configuration,” Wu said. “Our R&D, application engineering and project engineering expertise contributes to maximum performance of Camet ST sulfur tolerant oxidation catalyst in both new source applications and as a replacement catalyst in existing applications.”
The small-scale GTL (SSGTL) and small-scale LNG (SSLNG) sectors are gaining ground, providing alternative sources of power generation and transportation fuel in remote regions and areas not connected to major gas pipeline routes.
Gas Processing and Hydrocarbon Processing are pleased to announce that as of August 2017, Gas Processing will be distributed along with both Pipeline & Gas Journal and Hydrocarbon Processing.
Novatek, Russia’s largest independent natural gas producer, plans to invest up to $11 B in the large-scale Arctic LNG 2 project. The project involves the construction of an LNG plant on the Gydan Peninsula—a geographical feature of the Siberian coast of the Kara Sea.
