Nationwide Adblue (Diesel Fuel Additive) Deliveries
Speedy Fuels is a nationwide supplier of AdBlue, the diesel fuel additive for diesel engine vehicles. HGV’s are required, by law, to use AdBlue solution since regulations were rolled out to help reduce CO2 emissions in the UK.
In October 2006, the EU introduced a law requiring vehicle manufacturers to reduce the number of pollutants in the atmosphere. This resulted in a process known as SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) being introduced requiring the use of AdBlue in all Euro IV and Euro V vehicles weighing over 7.5 tonnes.

What is AdBlue (Diesel Fuel Additive)?
AdBlue is an aqueous urea solution made from 32.5% high purity urea and 67.5% deionised water. It is also known as diesel exhaust fluid or AUS32. The German Association of the Automobile Industry (VDA) own the trademark for AdBlue. The VDA ensures quality standards are maintained by ISO 2241 specifications.
How is AdBlue used?
AdBlue is used in a process known as SCR, which eliminates nitrogen oxides (NOx) released in diesel engine exhaust emissions. Large vehicles have a designated AdBlue tank in which the solution is stored.
This is then injected into the exhaust (at a rate of 2% of the diesel consumption volume) as it moves through the engine. It then vaporises and decomposes to form ammonia and carbon dioxide.
The ammonia breaks the NOx down to form water and nitrogen, which are both harmless to the environment and released through the exhaust.
