Diesel Emission Fluid

Louisville KY – Today Brenntag, the largest chemical distributor in the world, and the largest distributor of automotive grade urea in the world, announced that Brenntag North America plans to provide appropriate availability of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) for SCR vehicles throughout its network of over 120 locations in the United States and Canada.

Brenntag’s national program, “Urea 2010” is an initiative to provide DEF availability to SCR truck manufacturers and fleet operators. This program is designed to coordinate the necessary supply of quality grade urea, blending capabilities and flexible packaging options.

Brenntag has extensive experience with truck emission fluid and has been a key player in developing the infrastructure in Europe. “Brenntag understands the complexity of a start up (for DEF) and we are applying our experience and knowledge to successfully launch a customer friendly package to manufacturers and fleet operators of SCR trucks.” states Chet Murphy, Vice President of Market Development at Brenntag. Murphy further states: “While North American operations have different challenges than in Europe, we don’t see any of these challenges as show stoppers.”

Brenntag plans to stock DEF fluid that meets the high quality standards of ISO and AUS standards appropriately throughout its network of facilities in North America. Fast and reliable delivery will be available to supply drums and IBC’s as well as partial and full tank truck deliveries. Brenntag offers “scalable solutions.” As your fleet of SCR trucks grow, Brenntag will provide the right package size that meets your needs.

Brenntag will continue to closely monitor the development of the DEF market to prepare for anticipated demand. Today, Brenntag can deliver a container of product to your location from existing inventory. Commercial dispensing of DEF at major truck stops will be addressed as we move closer to 2010.

Brenntag recorded 2007 global sales of US$ 9.1 billion (EUR 6.6 billion). The company operates in excess of 300 locations with more than 11,000 people in 55 countries. In keeping with the company’s strong position in world markets, Brenntag is committed to providing value to its customers and suppliers through superior supply chain logistics, single sourcing, technical assistance and other value added services.
