BASF emissions catalysts to meet Euro VI regulations on display at IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair
Nienburg, September 20, 2012. BASF’s innovative emissions catalysts coatings to meet Euro VI regulations for heavy duty diesel vehicles will be on display at the DAF Trucks booth located in Hall 17, booth B20, at the IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair taking place in Hannover, Germany, from September 20-27, 2012.
The BASF emissions control coatings being showcased include DOCs (Diesel Oxidation Catalysts), catalytic particle filters (Catalyzed Soot Filter, CSF) and SCR catalysts (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for diesel engines. These emission catalyst products are manufactured at the company’s Nienburg, Germany, catalyst production facility.
