In 2005 the legislation on diesel vehicles in Ireland and the rest of Europe demanded a drastic reduction in NOx emissions. As a result of this, most new vehicles come with SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction).
- AdBlue® is essential for the cleansing and reduction of harmful emissions before exhaust fumes are released into the atmosphere.
- It is stored safely within a separate tank creating the cleansing and catalytic effect.
- AdBlue® consumption is typically around 3%–5% of the diesel consumption for a typical vehicle, dependent on weight and other relative factors.
If you have purchased a new diesel vehicle that is manufactured to meet Euro IV, V or VI standards it may require AdBlue®.
