Brenntag Announces New Diesel Exhaust Fluid “Pick up and Replace” Program

Empty DEF totes stacking up?

Brenntag North America will offer users of DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) a free service to pick up empty DEF totes (IBC’s) from any previous supplier. Brenntag will offer a special price to replace the tote with TerraCair® Diesel Exhaust Fluid. By having a method to dispose of empty containers and receive a discount the customer benefits in two ways.

“By recycling the tote, cost savings are passed on to our customers and we help the environment by reducing the need to dispose of used containers” said Chet Murphy, Vice President Market Development for Brenntag North America.

As customer demand for Diesel Exhaust Fluid grows, so does the concern for disposal of used containers. DEF suppliers typically offer one-way delivery, leaving the burden of disposal on the customer who must pay to have the empty totes removed.

Customers who take advantage of this service from Brenntag can be assured that totes are quality checked, inspected and returned in tact with the appropriate fittings to meet their requirements.

Totes will be processed and filled with TerraCair® Ultrapure Diesel Exhaust Fluid at one of Brenntag’s 100+ facilities which are audited to the highest quality standards for storage, handling and packaging of DEF.
