In comparison with diesel fuel, AdBlue does not take up a lot of space. For example, with a 4% blend, 1000 litres of diesel fuel will require just 40 litres of AdBlue. The consumption of AdBlue always remains in fixed proportion to the consumption of diesel fuel.

Tanks for AdBlue are available in various volumes from 30 to 120 litres. The tanks are made of aluminium or plastic. AdBlue is also available in plastic jerrycans and can be transported like any other spare-fuel jerrycan.

Quality-assured according to set norm
AdBlue is a stable, colourless and water-like fluid that is non-toxic and odourless. AdBlue is thoroughly quality-assured and meets DIN norm 70070. The fluid consists of 32.5% urea diluted in deionised water. The concentration of 32.5% has been chosen because this is the ideal ratio with regard to its freezing point, which is -11 degrees Celsius.

Stored in heated tanks in cold climates
At lower temperatures, AdBlue is stored in heated tanks. The hoses and couplings are also heated to ensure system dependability. If the truck is parked for a long time in severe cold, the fluid will freeze, but it will warm up and defrost once the engine is started. Note that the engine's starting ability is not affected in any way. AdBlue is part of the after-treatment system and all that happens is that the exhaust gases are not fully filtered until the engine and exhaust system reach normal operating temperature.

A natural ingredient in our environment
The active substance in AdBlue - urea - is made from natural gas. Urea is a white crystal powder that is also found naturally in the environment. It is a stable and non-toxic substance that has no restrictions concerning either storage or transport.
