Through a process called Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), AdBlue is used to reduce harmful emissions released from diesel engines. AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5%) is the official name for AdBlue.
AdBlue consists of 32.5% 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).

Vehicles that are fitted with SCR technology are required to use AdBlue. Since October 2006, all vehicles above 7.5 tonnes were manufactured with this technology. This includes industrial vehicles, buses and trucks. Your diesel will never come into contact with the AdBlue, as it is stored in its own designated tank with a sensor system and gauge. The rate of consumption for AdBlue is approximately 1:20 of the rate of diesel usage on standard Euro IV, Euro V and Euro VI trucks. AdBlue is sprayed into the exhaust stream of modern diesel engines as a post combustion process.
Water vapour, nitrogen and carbon dioxide are released from the vehicle’s exhaust when AdBlue is used. NOx (nitrous oxides) are usually released from a vehicle’s exhaust which is damaging to the environment. Through the process of SCR, AdBlue will break the NOx emissions down.
To reduce the pollutant levels across Europe, using SCR technology has become a legal requirement when manufacturing heavy goods vehicles.
Using AdBlue will help to lower your fuel consumption, which in turn will reduce the cost of fuel to drivers and transport companies. Therefore, you will be saving money and the environment by using AdBlue in your vehicle.
We also supply a wide range of tanks & pumps – both hand and electric for your dispensing needs. If you require any assistance regarding the storage of AdBlue, please ask one of our staff for advice and information.
Please note: To increase the lifespan of your SCR, you need to handle and store AdBlue correctly using the appropriate equipment. AdBlue is very susceptible to contamination from foreign matter as well as incorrect material selection.
