What is AdBlue and Where can you buy it?
AdBlue is a high quality urea solution that is very easy to use. AdBlue is the registered trademark for AUS32. AdBlue is used with the selective catalytic reduction system (SCR) to reduce emissions of UK diesel vehicles. Since 2005 legislation means you need to use a SCR system for heavy good vehicles. AdBlue cleanses and reduces harmful emissions before they enter the atmosphere. It converts harmful Nitrous Oxide from your diesel into harmless nitrogen and steam.
AdBlue is made up of a 32.5% solution of high purity urea in de-mineralized water that is clear, non-toxic and safe to handle. It is non explosive, Non flammable nor is it harmful to the environment. This means that AdBlue doesn’t need specialist storage conditions. You will however need to have a dedicated tank within your heavy-duty vehicle to store the solution separate to your diesel. You should also threat it like you would do diesel and top it up as and when it needs replenishing.
Where can I order AdBlue?
Adblue can be ordered in small quantities from lots of different websites and oil companies.
