Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)

DEF is a special ultrapure urea solution that is used as a reducing agent in the new SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology. Diesel-powered commercial vehicles with an SCR catalytic converter and an additional separate tank for "DEF" can convert their output of nitrogen oxides into neutral nitrogen and water, thus achieving a considerable reduction of their nitrogen oxide emissions.

This technology will also reduce the fuel consumption of the vehicle. DEF is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly and high quality chemical solution, comprised of 32.5% aqueous urea (ammonia) and 67.5% de-ionized water for specific use in SCR systems to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions.

If you purchase a car, truck, tractor or any diesel-powered product with SCR technology it will require DEF. SCR is an emissions control technology designed for diesel engines manufactured after the year 2010. For heavy duty and medium duty trucks, SCR provides the ability to reduce emissions to near zero levels while also delivering a 3-5% diesel fuel savings.
