Creating Performance Technology
The Catalysts business unit is a leading global catalyst supplier with a long history of innovation and expertise in catalysis, building on the capability of predecessor company Süd-Chemie.

Our catalysts contribute significantly to value creation in our customers’ operations, ensuring that finite raw materials and energy are used efficiently in the production of industrial chemicals, plastics, and fuels. Our products enable the use of alternative raw materials – such as natural gas, coal and biomass – as chemical and energy feedstocks, and are used to clean emissions from industrial processes and combustion engines to limit the impact on the environment.

We are committed to R&D and customer service to ensure that our products are well positioned to meet the global challenges of raw material scarcity, energy efficiency and responsible care for our environment.

Our Promise

We create added value by appreciating the needs of our customers – with competitive and innovative solutions. The needs of our employees – by adhering to our company values. The needs of our shareholders – with above-average returns. And the needs of our environment – by acting sustainably.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Clariant - Total Oxidation of Halogenated Hydrocarbons

Clariant has developed highly-active precious metal catalysts that tolerate halogenated hydrocarbons, such as trichloroethylene, perchloro-ethylene, methylchloride, vinylchloride, etc., and also to oxidize these constituents to end products: H2O, CO2 and HCl. Typical applications for these catalysts are exhaust gas treatment in soil remediation and in various ...

EnviCat - Denox and N2O Reduction

EnviCat N2O and EnviCat NOx are used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) processes. For tail-gas temperatures below 500º C, selective reduction with EnviCat N2O and EnviCat NOx is the most efficient and cost-effective solution. These catalysts are used with EnviNOx technology, which is an innovative process developed in co-operation with the plant engineering company ThyssenKrupp Uhde GmbH. N2O and NOx are reduced in this process by ammonia ...
