The need to comply with the gas emission limits established by European standards (Euro 6) and American standards led car manufacturers to look for solutions that would make it possible to reduce polluting gases. Faced with this concern and need, the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology emerged, whose objective is to significantly reduce polluting nitrogen oxide emissions. New diesel cars are already equipped with this technology and this is where AdBlue® liquid is used. The AdBlue® is an innovative product composed of urea and demineralized water, essential for all cars that use the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system to reduce nitrogen emissions in EURO 4, EURO 5 and, in particular, in diesel vehicles EURO 6, in line with E6 pollution legislation.
