To economically achieve these new standards engine developments alone were no longer sufficient. The solution is the SCR or Selective Catalytic Reduction where AdBlue is injected into the SCR catalys.
This converts problematic nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases, into a harmless mix of water, air and nitrogen.
Other positive environmental benefits of AdBlue
It reduces nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 60% (When compared to Euro 3).
It reduces particles by more than 80% (When compared to Euro 4).
It reduces CO2 by up to 7%.
It is environmentally friendly. The ingredients of AdBlue are urea and water.
