European Emissions Reduction
AdBlue® respects the European norm Euro 5 and Euro 6 aiming at reducing harmful emissions, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matter. AdBlue®, in combination with SCR technology, transforms 85% of NOx (nitrogen oxides resulting from the exhaust gases of your diesel vehicle) into harmless nitrogen and water steam. Therefore, NOx, which are a significant source of atmospheric pollution, are drastically reduced.
AdBlue®: What is it?
AdBlue® is an aqueous product, comprised of 32.5% high purity urea* and of 67.5% deionised water, and it respects the ISO22241 norm. Urea is synthetically produced from ammonia and CO2 (carbon dioxide). AdBlue® can be used by vehicles equipped with the SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction), such as heavy-duty trucks, buses, refuse collection vehicles, and, from September 2014, certain diesel passenger cars.
