New Regulations to Reduce Emissions Using AdBlue

The use of AdBlue® is not new, buses and HGV have been using it for several years. But as of September, all new diesel cars and light commercial vehicles sold in the EU will be fitted with AdBlue® tanks in order to comply with EU6 standards for exhaust emissions.

AdBlue® is the registered trademark for AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5%). It’s a colourless, non-flammable liquid used in a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and consists of 32.5% high purity urea and 67.5% deionised water. Put simply, the AdBlue® solution helps to reduce harmful nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions which are present in a diesel vehicle’s exhaust fumes.

Most new diesel cars which require AdBlue® carry sufficient quantity to last between scheduled servicing intervals. However some car fleets and commercial vans may require the additive to be topped up regularly by drivers or depot staff.

You should not use old diesel or oil containers / equipment to transfer AdBlue® into the tank. Any non-dedicated equipment can contaminate AdBlue®, even very small quantities of fuel or oil can damage a cars SCR system.

We can provide products to cover all aspects of the AdBlue® handling from manual hand pumps used to dispense from a drum, to electric AdBlue®, pumps for IBC and tank transfer operations, right the way through to automated management systems for small to large fleets.
