AdBlue partners with GreenChem to offer AdBlue

Exol Lubricants is now supplying AdBlue after partnering with GreenChem, the leading manufacturer of AdBlue across Europe.

Since the rollout of the product to customers, sales through Exol have more than doubled. Customers can now purchase retail-style four litre packs from Exol, with 10-litre, 20-litre and 200-litre packs also available supplied with no-drip universal pouring spouts.

IBCs and bulk deliveries can also be made through the lubricants supplier alongside storage and dispensing equipment. GreenChem has produced the specialist retail packs in accordance to ISO specification, providing Exol customers with an AdBlue starter kit for ease of use.

The 100- and 20-litre packages come with a canister featuring an integrated spout offering universal fitting, and the larger 200-litre AdBlue drums are specially designed for those managing a fleet of vehicles. This option comes complete with a trolley to enhance movement and can be easily refilled.

AdBlue is a highly purified colourless liquid used with diesel engines to reduce harmful emissions such as NOx. It is made up of de-mineralised water and urea, which then forms ammonia, the main active component.

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) is the technology behind the reduction of emissions. AdBlue is injected into the catalyst of the SCR system triggering a chemical reaction with the ammonia to convert the toxic nitrogen oxides (NOx) into nitrogen (N2) and water vapor (H2O), both of which are not harmful to the environment.

"The demand from our customer base has been incredible," explained Steve Dunn, Exol Lubricants sales director. "While it’s a product that is readily available in the market, customers want to purchase it from a trusted supplier like Exol, with the full support of our company and brand behind them."
