AdBlue is a diesel exhaust fluid that ensures optimal performance and reliability of your Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. It's a quality guarantee you can rely on time after time, fill after fill. Available at the pump or in convenient 10L packs at selected locations. This urea-based technology has been adopted by vehicle manufactures to help meet the latest European requirements on diesel engine emissions. The AdBlue we source is made to ISO quality standards 22241-1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as DIN70070 and CEFIC standards, and is Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V. approved.

What is AdBlue?

AdBlue® is a solution of urea and distilled water that is designed to meet the strict exhaust emissions guidelines that have been implemented in recent years.

AdBlue® is injected into the exhaust stream prior to passing through a catalyst. As it is heated in the exhaust, the AdBlue® changes into ammonia and carbon dioxide. When the nitrogen oxide (NOx) gases from the exhaust react with the ammonia and the catalyst, they are converted into harmless nitrogen and water vapour and released to the atmosphere as steam. So, it’s not only better for your fleet, it’s also better for the environment.

Guaranteed protection

Unlike non-approved diesel exhaust fluids, Ampol sourced AdBlue® is VDA-certified, and guaranteed not to contaminate the sensitive Selective Catalytic Reduction components found in modern diesel vehicles.

Guaranteed quality

Being fully VDA-approved and certified means the manufacturing processes have passed rigorous inspections to ensure consistent product quality that complies with strict ISO standards.

Adblue FAQs

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.
