Iselin, NJ, United States, 2023/03/22 - BASF recently inaugurated a new Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Station in Shanghai, China, certified with a CAAC Part 145 maintenance license (# D.200165), to service Deoxo™ aircraft ozone and ozone/VOC converters - BASF.com. Frankfurt (BAS)
• New Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Station is certified with a CAAC PART 145 maintenance license, representing best-in-class quality and safety systems;
• Complements BASF’s global footprint, providing high-quality aftermarket service to airlines in Asia Pacific with faster turnaround time.
It complements BASF’s existing MRO Station in North America, ensuring high-quality maintenance service to the international customers in Asia Pacific with faster turnaround times.
“We are excited that we can now service our customers in Asia Pacific in a facility located in the region,” said Olivia Cromwell, Global Business Manager, Aerospace, at BASF. “We are also proud to be able to help airlines be compliant with government regulations and enable cleaner air for passengers and crews in Asia and beyond.”
Thanks to state-of-the-art quality and safety systems, the new MRO Station met or exceeded OEMs’ requirements and standards and passed both the document review and on-site compliance audit by the Shanghai Civil Aviation Regulatory Bureau. Additionally, BASF is in the process of applying for the FAA and EASA Part 145 certification for the new Shanghai MRO facility.
BASF’s Deoxo™ ozone/VOC dual function converters catalytically remove ozone and mitigate odorous volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to improve cabin air quality. They are available for factory installation on new airplanes or as a field retrofit for airplanes already in service that either do not have an ozone converter or require an upgrade from an existing Deoxo™ ozone converter.
BASF is the leading supplier of proven ozone and ozone/VOC catalytic converter technologies that address the needs of aircraft OEMs to achieve compliant and comfortable cabin air quality for crew and passengers. BASF pioneered the first ozone converter more than 30 years ago, and its ozone/VOC dual-function converter has been used on aircraft for more than 15 years.
MRO service is available by contacting BASF’s global distribution network.
