BASF will open its first regional adsorbents application development center in Shanghai, China, the company said May 6.

The laboratory will be located at the BASF Innovation Campus Asia Pacific, the company’s largest integrated research and development, sales and marketing site in the region. Here, BASF adsorbents experts will provide both technical service and advanced applications development for mercury removal from natural gas and related hydrocarbon purification activities, working closely with BASF’s global adsorbents research and development team to support customers throughout the Asia Pacific region.
