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.”
Large-scale production of shale gas in the US, which began around the turn of the century, is now feeding US exports in the form of LNG.
Annual demand for natural gas in the EU is pegged at approximately 380 Bm3y–450 Bm3y. A portion of this demand is met by regional production within the EU. However, the European energy system is beset by challenges that are impacting EU gas supply.
