Around five million liters of Adblue are used by trucks on German roads every day. The urea solution is indispensable in exhaust gas treatment. One of the largest manufacturers recently cut production because of energy prices. The logistics industry is now making an exclusive agreement.
"We are already trying to give BGL as much Adblue as possible," said a company spokesman from Lutherstadt Wittenberg. How big the emergency care is cannot be said exactly, the spokesman said. According to the BGL, the contingent is intended to counteract an imminent vehicle standstill due to an acute Adblue shortage. According to its own statements, the company SKW currently produces with only one of two ammonia plants.
The production of Adblue is considered to be energy-intensive and therefore currently particularly expensive. SKW recently partially stopped production. The urea solution Adblue is used in the exhaust aftertreatment of diesel engines and reduces the emitted nitrogen oxides by up to 90 percent. According to BGL, almost every truck in the forwarding, logistics and transport industry in Germany runs on diesel. According to BGL, Adblue consumption by trucks on German roads is around five million liters per day.
