With increasing concerns about environmental pollution and the need for sustainable solutions, industries around the world are striving to reduce their carbon footprint. One area that has gained significant attention is diesel-powered vehicles and machinery, notorious for emitting harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx). To address this issue, the automotive industry has introduced AdBlue, a fluid that reduces NOx emissions.
AdBlue is a non-toxic, colorless liquid composed of urea and deionized water. It is injected into the exhaust stream of diesel vehicles equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems. When AdBlue is heated, it decomposes to produce ammonia, which then reacts with NOx in the presence of a catalyst, converting them into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. This chemical process significantly reduces the emissions of nitrogen oxides, which are known contributors to air pollution and adverse health effects.
There are a number of different types of AdBlue onsite storage tanks available, including:
• Portable tanks: Portable tanks are a good option for businesses with small fleets or that need to move their AdBlue storage location frequently. Global has range of different portable tanks that can be purchased.
• Permanent tanks: Permanent tanks are a good option for businesses with large fleets or that need to store a large amount of AdBlue. Global have custom permanent tank configurations talk with our friendly staff.
When choosing an AdBlue onsite storage tank, businesses should consider the following factors:
• Size: The size of the tank should be based on the amount of AdBlue that the business needs to store.
• Type: The type of tank (portable or permanent) should be based on the business’s needs.
• Features: The tank should have features that meet the business’s specific needs, such as a pump, gauges, and a spill containment system.
• AdBlue onsite storage tanks are an important part of managing diesel exhaust emissions. By storing AdBlue onsite, businesses can save money, improve efficiency, and comply with environmental regulations.
Here are some additional tips for storing AdBlue onsite:
• Keep the tank clean and free of debris. This will help to prevent contamination of the AdBlue.
• Store the tank in a cool, dry place. This will help to prevent the AdBlue from freezing or degrading.
• Check the tank regularly for leaks. If you find a leak, immediately clean up the spill and repair the leak.
• Dispose of used AdBlue properly. Do not pour it down the drain or onto the ground. Contact your local waste disposal company for proper disposal instructions.
AdBlue tanks play a vital role in reducing diesel emissions and promoting a cleaner environment. With the use of AdBlue tanks, industries and vehicle operators can actively contribute to the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions, supporting sustainable practices and a greener future for generations to come.
