For many owners of modern diesel-powered vehicles, ‘AdBlue’ is becoming more and more popular to help decrease emissions. If you yourself are the owner or operator of diesel vehicles, then read on to better understand what it is and why it’s being used on modern diesel engine vehicles.

For the environmentally conscious, AdBlue makes it possible to drastically reduce the pollutants released by diesel engines. All modern heavy goods vehicles above 7.5 tonnes require AdBlue to use used by law. New vehicles from 2016 will likely require AdBlue, especially if bought from Land Rover, Jaguar or a German or French manufacturer.

A brief guide to AdBlue

What is AdBlue?

The car industry is under pressure to work towards the ever-increasing stringent emissions regulations. The EU has a mission to improve air quality and the health of the population. The Euro 6 was introduced in 2016 that requires diesel car manufacturers to come up with new ways to reduce emissions. AdBlue is a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) that is non-toxic fluid and helps reduce the nitrous oxide emitted in diesel exhaust fumes through a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).

The additive is stored in a separate tank to your diesel and is sprayed onto the fumes before they leave the exhaust pipe. Once applied to the fumes, the AdBlue solution neutralises the harmful emissions before they’re released into the atmosphere.

All AdBlue needs to meet ISO 2241 specifications, as set out by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA), who currently hold the official trademark. AUS32 and diesel exhaust fluid are two other terms used to refer to AdBlue. It is made from 67.5% deionised water and 32.5% high-purity urea.

How does AdBlue work?

The nitrous oxide within exhaust emissions from diesel engines are broken down by using the SCR procedure, which requires the use of diesel exhaust fluid. Carbon dioxide and ammonia are formed when AdBlue mixes with the exhaust emissions. The volume of exhaust fluid used is approximately 2% of the diesel usage itself. Diesel exhaust fluid is stored in a separate container on large vehicles. The ammonia formed is broken down into nitrogen and water and released through the exhaust, which is harmless to our environment.

Is AdBlue safe to handle?

Care should be taken when storing and transporting AdBlue as some metals can corrode if they come into contact with the fluid. If you need advice on storing and dispensing the product then a member of our team will be happy to help. However, we do recommend keeping exhaust fluid away from direct sunlight in a well-ventilated area that is dry and cool.

How much AdBlue can I purchase?
