What is the environmental impact of the use of AdBlue®
How can AdBlue reduce the impact of diesel on the environment?
AdBlue® as an intrinsic product has no ecological value if it is used alone. On the other hand, when used combined with the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system it can reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides from diesel vehicles. Some manufacturers mention a reduction of up to 90%. Indeed, injected into the output of the engine, AdBlue® helps limit exhaust emissions by transforming particles of nitrogen dioxide (NOx) into nitrogen and water. Thus, air pollution (ex: clouds of pollution) formed in cities by NOx are reduced. Heavy goods vehicles and buses registered on the European market after 2006 are all equipped with the SCR consumer system Adblue® as the Euro VI European standard has established stricter thresholds of limitations of dioxide for heavy vehicles before extending them to the commercial and private vehicles fleet.
