BASF continues to add new solutions to its portfolio for natural gas processing applications with the launch of Durasorb HG, a mercury removal adsorbent. Durasorb HG is a non-regenerable, mixed metal oxide adsorbent containing a dispersed and promoted copper sulphide phase.

As a robust adsorbent, Durasorb HG is designed to work in wet conditions. The fast kinetics and maximum mercury penetration allow for the most efficient use of the adsorbent bed. The addition of a mercury removal adsorbent complements the Durasorb product line providing complete pre-treatment solutions for mid-stream gas processors and LNG operators, including heavy hydrocarbon removal, BTX removal and dehydration.

This is an exciting time for our Durasorb team. The LNG market is fast growing, and we are poised to provide a broad range of superior solutions to our customers,” says Detlef Ruff, senior vice president, process catalysts, at BASF SE.

BASF is now able to provide the complete LNG pre-treatment package, which provides unique advantages over competition and positions BASF as a complete solution provider for our customers,” adds Adrian Steinmetz, vice president, global chemical catalysts and adsorbents, BASF.
