For those of us in the business of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) whether it be producing, packaging, distributing or using, we know that DEF is made from high purity UREA and DI Water. What sometimes gets lost is the relationship that UREA pricing has on DEF and what drives the pricing of UREA on a local and global scale.
WHAT IS DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF)? DEF, also known as AdBlue®, AUS 32 and ARLA 32, is a non-toxic, colourless, odourless and non-flammable fluid. Stored in a dedicated tank in your car, DEF is injected into the exhaust system to clean exhaust gases. It breaks down nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions into harmless water vapour and nitrogen gas.
