Who Needs It?
All commercial vehicles above 7.5 tonnes manufactured after October 2006 (Euro IV and Euro V) are fitted with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology. For the SCR to work it requires Adblue to be injected in to the exhaust gases as a post combustion process.
Adblue is not added to the diesel fuel, but is stored in a separate tank on the vehicle which has its own gauge and metering system; it’s added to the exhaust gases at a proportion roughly equivalent to 5% of the diesel fuel.
What Does It Do?
Put simply, Adblue helps to reduce the harmful nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions present in diesel vehicle exhaust emissions, its use is a legal requirement as part of the EU’s commitment to reduce CO2 emissions and cut pollution across the EU member states.
Reduced CO2 emissions from commercial vehicles is not the only benefit of Adblue, as its use helps to increase vehicle MPG.
Adblue is available in 1,000 litre IBC containers, 200 litre barrels and a variety of smaller pack sizes.
While a safe product to use and handle, there are procedures to be followed to ensure the product is kept in a good condition and its effectiveness not impaired, care needs to taken particularly in the storage and dispensing of the product.
