AdBlue® is a chemical solution of technical grade urea (also called carbamide) in water, which is manufactured to ISO quality standards 22241-1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as DIN70070 and CEFIC standards.
Stricter emission standards in Australia have been implemented in recent years, including EURO 4 and 5. To meet these standards, diesel engines have been redesigned to utilise selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems that require the addition of AdBlue® to minimise exhaust emissions.

Because Ampol AdBlue® is a fully VDA approved and certified product, it means our manufacturing processes have passed rigorous inspections and ongoing audits to ensure consistent product quality that complies with strict ISO standards. Only certified VDA AdBlue® suppliers are licensed to sell branded AdBlue®.

Non VDA approved urea solutions do not offer the same guarantee of performance, product quality, and consistency. Inconsistency of product due to inferior ingredients, contaminants and unsuitable manufacturing processes can lead to:

Blocked sites within the SCR catalyst leading to downtime and costly repairs.

Reduced conversion of NOx causing increased frequency of system warning alerts.

AdBlue® is also available from a number of Ampol truck stops nationwide. Find AdBlue® near you here.

Ampol AdBlue® is also available in 1000-litre (IBC) or 210-litre drums, and 10-litre top-up packs, with bulk delivery to customer storage facilities nationwide if required.
Not only is Ampol AdBlue® fully VDA approved, it also meets stringent ISO 22241-1, 2, 3 and 4 standards, ensuring maximum performance and reliability of your SCR system.

Non-VDA approved urea solutions do not offer the same guarantee of product quality and performance.
