AdBlue for Haulage Firms

Overview of AdBlue and its benefits for the haulage industry.

Any SCR-equipped haulage vehicle requires a regular supply of AdBlue®. While AdBlue is available at filling stations in the UK, your fleet will benefit from refilling AdBlue tanks at your depot. You can order AdBlue delivered in bulk from Landowner Products – We’ll deliver right to your tank.

What is AdBlue?

AdBlue is a diesel exhaust fluid made up of 67.5% deionised water and 32.5% high-purity urea, designed to reduce emissions from the diesel engines of HGVs, trucks, lorries and vans. Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V. (VDA) approved AdBlue is a clear, non-toxic solution which works with the SCR system in a vehicle’s exhaust to reduce emissions of Nitrogen Oxide (NO2).

How Does AdBlue Work?

An SCR-equipped diesel engine will have a separate DEF tank from the diesel tank to contain the AdBlue. Then engine’s electronic control unit (ECU) measures the operating conditions of the engine and injects an exact amount of AdBlue into the exhaust system.

This AdBlue comes into contact with the exhaust fumes and SCR system. Using the heat of the exhaust, the SCR catalyses a reaction between the Nitrogen Oxide (NO2) in the exhaust gas and the urea (CH4N2O) in the AdBlue, to produce Nitrogen gas (N), water vapour (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). This leads to a greatly reduced NO2 emission from the engine overall, benefitting the health of people and the local environment.

Air Quality Regulations and Euro VI Compliance

Compliance with Clean Air Zone regulations and Euro VI has become all-important for haulage companies in recent years, as Defra places higher levies on 12-tonne HGVs that are not at Euro VI standards. This has encouraged investment among haulage companies in SCR-equipped vehicles, which use AdBlue to keep NO2 emissions below 0.8g/kg.

Benefits of Using AdBlue® in the haulage industry

The widespread investment in Euro VI trucks across the UK haulage industry has led to a 72% drop in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from HGVs since 2013. This is a huge benefit of using AdBlue to decontaminate exhaust fumes and reduce air pollution on UK roadsides, making the roads safer for those drivers who spend long hours in the cab.

Without sufficient AdBlue, an SCR-equipped engine will reduce its operating performance, allowing drivers just sufficient power to pull over and refill the DEF tank. This failsafe ensures that drivers do not neglect AdBlue refills and return to dangerous levels of air pollution.

How Haulage Companies Use AdBlue

The widespread investment in Euro VI trucks across the UK haulage industry has led to a 72% drop in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from HGVs since 2013. This is a huge benefit of using AdBlue to decontaminate exhaust fumes and reduce air pollution on UK roadsides, making the roads safer and healthier for those drivers who spend long hours in the cab.

It’s also good for business. AdBlue helps hauliers reduce harmful emissions from diesel vehicles, so environmental regulations are easier to meet. The SCR system uses AdBlue to convert nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water vapour, reducing the amount of NOx that is released into the atmosphere to below 0.8mg/km, which is the limit set under Euro 6 legislation (2014)

By using AdBlue, haulage businesses can reduce their impact on the environment and help to protect local air quality, attracting business from companies looking to reduce their environmental impact

Without sufficient AdBlue, an SCR-equipped engine, common in HGVs, vans and lorries, will reduce its operating performance, allowing drivers just enough power to pull over and refill the AdBlue tank. This failsafe ensures that drivers do not neglect AdBlue refills and return to dangerous levels of air pollution.
