Cows come through for AdBlue
August 26, 2014

We all know about the dangers of pollution and the damage harmful emissions can do, but who would’ve thought the answer could be found in cow urine?

Yes, that’s right – cow urine.

But don’t be put off, urea is commonly known for its use in fertilisation and it does a pretty good job, too.

Adblue is an extremely pure urea solution specifically designed for use with SCR technology.

In simpler terms, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is a technology used to ‘clean up’ the diesel engines of trucks and agricultural machinery, by using a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) as an after-treatment.

Adblue is a type of DEF that is used with this technology and injected from a separate tank into the exhaust gas. The high temperatures of the exhaust gas form ammonia, which then stimulates a chemical reaction to convert harmful nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water.  

In fact, Adblue used with SCR technology can even improve fuel consumption by up to 2%.

Adblue is the only solution that can be used for this technology and it is essential that investments in heavy-duty vehicles and agricultural machinery are protected.

Not only can Adblue reduce harmful emissions and fuel consumption, but it is also necessary to comply with the Euro 6 emissions standards, which require the use of SCR and AdBlue accordingly.

Adblue is not hazardous

  • It is not an additive – it never comes into contact with the diesel itself
  • The SCR technology used with it is a reliable way to clean up your engine that does not require extra circulation of exhaust gasses – keeping it cool and clean;
  • And most importantly, pollutants can be reduced to near-zero levels without compromising performance.

It seems that something as natural as urea has offered a solution to reducing harmful emissions, improving the efficiency of diesel engines and heavy-duty vehicles/machinery while contributing to reducing fuel consumption as well.
