BASF, through its global Catalysts division, is investing to further expand and modernize its emissions catalysts production facility in Nienburg, Lower Saxony.
The company is allocating a double-digit million euro sum to increase capacity and keep pace with increasing demand for innovative and cost-effective emissions control systems for cars, trucks, buses and off-road vehicles with gasoline and diesel engines.
The main part of the investment relates to expanding production lines for catalytic particle filters (Catalyzed Soot Filter, CSF) and SCR catalysts (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for diesel engines. State-of-the-art systems for coating and drying the catalysts will be procured.
“Nienburg has reliably delivered emissions control systems and components to customers for years. With the ongoing success of our Euro VI emissions control technologies, it was necessary to invest significantly to meet our customers’ demand and to satisfy their current and future needs,” said Xavier Susterac, Vice President, Mobile Emissions Catalysts at BASF. “We look forward to enhancing our operations to continue this mission while effectively managing ongoing growth.”
“This expansion project is an investment in the future of the plant and an affirmation of our commitment to the Nienburg site and the region,” added Site Director Martin Kraum.
