What is AdBlue Audi?

You have probably heard it mentioned but are still not too sure what is AdBlue. Emissions and level of pollution are going to become prominent factors for car producers in the future, and we are already starting to see this change. Indeed, the EU are putting new emission regulations in place to protect both the public and the environment from harmful levels.

It is pushing producers towards more innovative and exciting ideas and inventions that give driver's more and result in far fewer emissions. Ultimately, this is about building machines and solutions that are efficient. That brings us to one of the solutions used by Audi, AdBlue.

AdBlue Explained

One of the latest ways to make a car more efficient is through selective catalyst reduction. Also known as SCR, this treatment system converts dangerous pollutant chemicals like Nitric Oxide in Nitrogen and water which are both far less harmful. This can be achieved by creating a compound made of CO2 and ammonia.

Many cars to create harmful emissions through the exhaust system, releasing Nitrogen Oxide into the air. With the Adblue Audi solution, their cars are cleaner and more efficient. The solution itself is both non-flammable and non-toxic, so it’s the perfect option for general users. Furthermore, it’s completely biodegradable ensuring lower levels of waste.

How Does AdBlue Work?

You might be wondering how the AdBlue solution works as part of your Audi vehicle. Well, first, it’s important to know that AdBlue is not mixed with your fuel. Unlike other solutions, it’s kept in a separate tank and then injected into the engine. With this solution, 80% of the most harmful emissions can be completely converted.

Is AdBlue New?

Interestingly, this is not a new solution although you may find that you are only now buying a car that includes the system. The Audi AdBlue system has been used in everything from HGVs to buses for years.

The new emissions regulations introduced by the EU in 2015 made AdBlue a crucial solution that is now used in all diesel cars that are released through Europe.
