Automotive Grade Urea used to manufacture AdBlue is produced from natural gas. The current conflict with Ukraine/Russia and subsequent sanctions imposed, have caused the price of natural gas to soar and has again reached a record high.European Urea manufacturers have already started to take the decision to implement either plant shutdowns or reduce production because the cost of production is too high. This in turn has led to the cost of urea and therefore AdBlue once again rising in price.

Getting started with WavianBlue (AdBlue®)

If you’ve bought a new diesel car recently, chances are you will know all about AdBlue®. Since September 2015 virtually all vehicles that run on diesel fuel have been fitted with a SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system that is designed to reduce CO2 emissions into the environment.

Developed to adhere to new stricter EU legislation the system works by using an active additive ( DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid – commonly known as AdBlue®) to neutralise the nitrogen oxides into water and less harmful gasses before the gasses leave the exhaust.

WavianBlue is officially licensed by the VDA and fully complies to the industrial standard ISO 22241. Be wary of purchasing cheaper alternatives of AdBlue® as unlike WavainBlue many are not officially licenced and may cause damage to your car. Always look for the ISO22241 quality standard on the label (see below) to ensure the AdBlue® you are purchasing is of the finest quality.
