What is AdBlue®?

AdBlue is used to reduce NOx emissions in vehicles equipped with SCR technology

AdBlue converts harmful NOx from your diesel vehicle exhaust into harmless nitrogen and steam, therefore considerably reducing the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) that are a major source of atmospheric pollution and that lead to smog in urban centres. According to studies done by the World Health Association, NOx emissions are known to aggravate asthma.

Since 2005, legislation on diesel vehicles in the UK & Ireland and in the rest of Europe demands a drastic reduction of NOx emissions. Vehicle manufacturers, and first and foremost those of large goods vehicles, have had to re-think the exhaust system on their vehicles. More and more diesel cars, tractors and other off-road vehicles are also now equipped with the SCR system in the exhaust.

AdBlue is very easy to use and is a harmless substance. It is not a fuel, nor a fuel additive but a high purity urea solution that must be used in a dedicated tank on your vehicle, that should just be refilled as and when required. AdBlue is non-flammable and non-explosive. It is classified as a transportable fluid with minimal risk. If you ever spill AdBlue on your hands, simply wash them thoroughly with water.
