BASF SE is a German multinational chemical company and the largest chemical producer in the world. The BASF Group comprises subsidiaries and joint ventures in more than 80 countries and operates six integrated production sites and 390 other production sites in Europe, Asia, Australia, the Americas and Africa. Its headquarters is located in Ludwigshafen, Germany. BASF has customers in over 190 countries and supplies products to a wide variety of industries. Despite its size and global presence, BASF has received relatively little public attention since it abandoned manufacturing and selling BASF-branded consumer electronics products in the 1990s.
AdBlue® – The reliable choice
For several years, the Euro IV, V, VI onwards Standard Emissions Regulations significantly restricted marginal values of exhaust gasses, specifically nitric oxide, from commercial vehicles. Recently, these restrictions included private vehicles. In order to reach these objectives, most European OEMs rely on the well-established Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. AdBlue® by BASF can help reduce nitric oxide emissions.
How does AdBlue® by BASF work?
AdBlue® is a high purity, 32.5% urea solution directly injected into the exhaust gas where it serves as reducing agent. The released ammonia subsequently reacts with the nitric oxides on the catalyst to form elementary nitrogen and water; both are natural constituents of the air we breathe. Hence, the amount of nitric oxides in the emission can be reduced.
Reduced fuel consumption and constant engine output
The combination of SCR Catalysts with AdBlue® by BASF needs higher temperatures in the motor to elevate the exhaust gas temperature for the effective AdBlue NOX reduction. This leads to higher fuel efficiency and less unburned fuels and less sooty particles in the exhaust gases without affecting engine output.
AdBlue® by BASF – fit for the future!
AdBlue® by BASF is part of a future-proof concept for the reduction of exhaust emissions. By combining environmental friendliness and cost effectiveness, AdBlue® by BASF meets all EURO IV, V and VI onwards objectives.
