SDCmaterials, a Tempe, Ariz.-based producer of catalysts and ceramic additives, has raised $14 million in venture capital funding, including another investment by BASF Venture Capital. Founded in 2004, SDC runs a plant in Tempe in which it makes catalysts for hydrogenation, automotive emissions reduction, and isomerization and reforming in refineries.

SDC recently opened a plant at BASF's Schwarzheide, Germany, facility.
