AdBlue is the registered trademark for AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5%) and is used in a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).
AdBlue consists of 32.5% of high purity urea and 67.5% of de-ionised water.
The AdBlue trademark is currently held by the German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA - Verband der Automobilindustrie).
All Commercial Vehicles - Trucks, Buses & Industrial Vehicles (above 7.5 tonnes) manufactured after October 2006 that are fitted with a new SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction), requires vehicles to use AdBlue. It is injected into the exhaust gases of modern diesel engines as a post combustion process. In other words, AdBlue is sprayed into the exhaust stream of Euro IV and Euro V Vehicles at a proportion of around 5% to Diesel fuel. The AdBlue is placed in a designated AdBlue tank on the vehicle with its own gauge and sensor system. AdBlue never comes into contact with the fuel.
The purpose of this SCR process is to reduce the percentage of harmful NOx (nitrous oxide) emissions present in all diesel vehicles emissions, by breaking the NOx emissions down into mainly Nitrogen and Oxygen.
European legislation requires vehicle manufacturers to use this technology to reach the reduced levels of pollutants.
The use of AdBlue helps not only the environment by reducing the emissions created by diesel engines, but it also helps transport companies and drivers reduce fuel costs, by reducing fuel consumption.
