the year 2000, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continued
with its ‘2007 Highway Rule’ to make heavy-duty on-road vehicles
for instance trucks and buses run cleaner. According to the EPA,
starting 2007, harmful pollution from heavy-duty highway vehicles was
to be reduced by more than 90%. From 2010, diesel truck emissions
were required to exhibit a 97% reduction in their sulfur content.
the implementation of the new EPA requirements, 2010 brought
significant changes in on-road diesel engine vehicles. Engine
manufacturers have come up with advanced pollution control technology
options for cars, trucks, and buses. It initiated with the
implementation of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems to reduce
NOx, then advanced to the diesel particulate filter (DPF), and now
selective catalytic reduction (SCR) which applies primarily to diesel
vehicles manufactured in and after 2010.

technology uses ammonia to breakdown NOx emissions produced during
diesel combustion, converting them into nitrogen and water. SCR has
become the technology of choice for a majority of truck and engine
manufacturers to meet EPA’s stringent emissions standards. The
biggest advantage of SCR for the vehicle owner is fuel savings. As
SCR deals with NOx outside the engine, so that manufacturers can fine
tune their engines to run more efficiently and generate more power,
which leads to a diminution in particulate matter, less frequent
regeneration of the DPF, and increased fuel economy.
exhaust fluid (DEF) is injected into the exhaust stream just ahead of
the SCR catalyst. It converts NOx into harmless nitrogen and water.
This greatly reduces NOx, a significant contributor to greenhouse
gases in the air, with the overall diesel emissions reduced by 90%.
With the use of DEF, 2.6 million tons of smog-causing NOx emissions
are predicted to be reduced every year.
is a mixture of automotive-grade urea, high-purity, synthetic and
deionized water. This liquid is clear, non-toxic, non-flammable,
non-explosive, and generally non-hazardous. Additionally, it is
classified as least risk for transportation. DEF is mixed at a ratio
of 32.5% formaldehyde-free low biuret urea and 67.5& deionized
water. Diesel exhaust fluid weighs 9.1 pounds per gallon which is
heavier in comparison with diesel. While it freezes at 12°, its
quality and composition are not affected by thawing or freezing. All
DEF are designed to break down at elevated temperatures. Industry
standard requirements specify storage between 23° F (-5° C) to 86°
F (30° C) for maximum shelf life. DEF typically has a shelf life up
to 2 years from the time of manufacture.
manufacturers strictly adhere to the ISO 22241 quality standards. In
Europe, the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA)
controls the “AdBlue” trademark and uses it to safeguard that DEF
quality standards are maintained in accord with DIN 70070, which is
similar to the U.S.’s ISO 22241. DEF is provided in portable
containers and bulk storage.
environmental concerns and declining carbon emissions are forcing
governments across the globe to focus on DEF to cut down nitrogen
oxide emissions. Moreover, level-3 regulations introduced by the EPA
of the U.S. aim at significantly reducing poisonous gases and
offering guidelines to improve the fuel efficiency of diesel engines.
This, coupled with rising automobile sales across the globe, is
expected to boost the demand for diesel exhaust fluid by 2025.
Furthermore, the introduction of hybrid selective non-catalytic
reduction (SNCR) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which are
cost-effective solutions incurring low capital as well as operational
cost, are anticipated to further drive the global diesel exhaust
fluid market during the forecast period.
