BASF und TOYO cooperate in marketing of special gas purification technology

Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) and BASF have entered into a cooperation to market and sell a gas purification technology specifically designed to purify synthesis gas streams for Integrated gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants and chemical products such as Methanol. According to the company, the technology, which will be marketed under the brand name PuraTreatTM A, has excellent properties to selectively remove sulphur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide or carbonyl sulfide from synthesis gas streams based on coal. BASF states that, compared to currently used processes the new PuraTreat A technology is far more energy efficient, more flexible and requires significantly less capital investment for grassroots plants. The cooperation intensifies the relationship between TOYO and BASF as both companies have already successfully worked together on numerous projects including acid gas sweetening using BASF's aMDEATM technology - short for "activated methyl diethanolamine".
