FCC Technologies

BASF provides innovative technology platforms as the basis of the FCC Refining Catalysts portfolio

Distributed Matrix Structures (DMS) Technology Platform

Distributed Matrix Structures (DMS) unique pore architecture delivers benefits for all catalytic cracking (FCC) unit designs offering enhanced diffusion of hydrocarbon feed for pre-cracking on highly dispersed zeolite crystals. 

  • Over 125 commercial applications
  • Increase gasoline yield by 2-5 LV%
  • Selective bottoms reduction
  • Maximizes conversion within coke and gas constraints


Proximal Stable Matrix and Zeolite (Prox-SMZ) Technology Platform

Proximal Stable Matrix and Zeolite provides an innovative catalytic technology platform for maximizing distillate yields from a fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) unit.

  • Proximal stable matrix and zeolite
  • Innovative technology creates both zeolite and active matrix in a single process
  • Highest thermal and hydrothermal stability in the industry
  • Matrix and zeolite stability enhanced by lowest Na levels in the industry
