AdBlue® reduces emissions in diesel engines by converting Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) into harmless Nitrogen and water
AdBlue® reduces emissions in diesel engines by converting Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) into harmless Nitrogen and water. It is proven technology that has been used in commercial vehicles for 10 years and recently is being used in new diesel cars, which must meet strict emission standards, called Euro 6 Emission Standards.
AdBlue® is a highly purified colorless liquid. It contains de-mineralized water and urea (32.5%). It is used with diesel engines and is also known outside of Europe as DEF, ARLA 32 or AUS 32 in some countries.
The main active component of AdBlue® is ammonia. This is chemically formed by hydrolyzing automotive urea, which is the main raw material for AdBlue®. Urea is also used in the production of fertilizers and many more applications.
AdBlue® is used with diesel engines using SCR technology. This technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction) reduces harmful emissions (NOx). AdBlue® is injected into the catalyst of the SCR system, where it triggers a chemical reaction with the ammonia. This chemical reaction converts the toxic nitrogen oxides (NOx) into nitrogen (N2) and water vapor (H2O). Water vapor and nitrogen are naturally occurring gasses that are harmless to the environment.
