BASF Catalysts India Pvt Ltd (BASF) will expand its mobile emissions catalysts production plant in Chennai, India. The double-digit million Euro investment will nearly double the company’s catalysts production capacity for the heavy-duty on- and off-road segment. The completion of the expansion is planned in 4Q22.

“This expansion positions BASF to further meet OEMs’ increasing demand for high-performance and cost-effective emissions control solutions in India,” said Stephan Hermes, Vice President, Mobile Emissions Catalysts, Asia Pacific. “It also demonstrates our strong commitment and contribution to the Indian government’s endeavours for cleaner air in the region.”

BASF’s Chennai catalysts site produces a full range of automotive emissions catalyst solutions for passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, off-road vehicles and motorcycles. This investment will further boost BASF’s capabilities to support increasingly stringent requirements with the implementation of stricter emission regulations.
