BASF Opens New Lab

BasCat Lab opens at TU Berlin.

BASF and the Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis” (UniCat) opened the BasCat Laboratory on the South Campus of Technical University (TU) Berlin. Scientists will research the principles of heterogeneous catalysis for raw material change in the approximately 1,000 square meters of laboratory and office space. BASF and TU Berlin are devoting considerable resources to establishing the BasCat Laboratory. BASF is investing up to €6.4 million during the first five years. The total cost is around €13 million.

Research partners include the Institutes of Chemistry, Process Technology and Material Sciences at TU Berlin and the Inorganic Chemistry Department of the Fritz Haber Institute.
