BASF to invest €150M to build its largest European production plant for mobile emissions catalysts

11 November 2012

BASF is investing approximately €90 million (US114 million) in the first step to build a mobile emissions catalysts production facility in Środa Śląska, a Special Economic Zone near Wrocław, Poland. Construction of the new 40,000 square meter facility—BASF’s largest in Europe—will begin before the end of 2012. The plant will start production in the first quarter of 2014. Additional expansion will follow, raising the total investment volume for the project to approximately €150 million (US$191 million).

The planned implementation of Euro 6 light duty and Euro VI heavy duty emissions regulations in Europe will drive an increased demand for advanced emissions control systems. BASF is more than doubling its production capacity in Europe to keep pace with this demand and to continue to meet our customers’ needs.

—Rui Goerck, Senior Vice President, Mobile Emissions Catalysts at BASF

Among the technologies that will be produced in Poland are Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems and SCR on Filter solutions. In addition, the plant will house a regional sample laboratory and a production line for BASF’s Premair-branded ozone destruction catalysts for automotive applications.

In parallel with the new production plant, BASF is also currently modernizing and expanding its emissions catalyst production operation in Nienburg, Germany.

BASF’s Catalysts division is the world’s leading supplier of environmental and process catalysts.
