BASF launches new product for mercury removal from natural gas


In Germany, BASF launched Durasorb HG, a non-regenerable, mixed metal oxide mercury removal adsorbent containing a dispersed and promoted copper sulfide phase. As an 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.
