AdBlue® is a very pure 32.5% urea solution that can be used in heavy goods vehicles with Euro 4, Euro 5, Euro 6, and Euro 7 diesel engines with the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology, in agricultural and forestry machinery, buses, and cars with diesel engines, trains and in the shipping industry.
In the reduction catalytic converter the toxic nitrogen oxides (NOx) are converted into harmless nitrogen and water vapour, i.e. naturally occurring gasses. This system makes it possible to reduce NOx emissions of diesel vehicles to 85%.
The consumption of this fluid depends on the emission, which may total 5%–8% of the overall fuel consumption. As a chemical substance, it is non-toxic and not hazardous, but it may react with some substances, therefore it is necessary to ensure its appropriate storage and transportation conditions.
