BlueDEF® Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a mixture of high purity synthetic urea and deionized water that is used in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems in diesel vehicles. DEF is used to help convert NOx to harmless nitrogen and water.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is one of the key elements of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) process used by Diesel Engine builders to meet EPA 2010 regulations. BlueDEF is a nontoxic solution of 67.5 percent purified water and 32.5 percent ultra-pure automotive-grade urea. BlueDEF is not a fuel or fuel additive. Instead, when injected into the exhaust stream and passed over a catalyst, BlueDEF helps convert NOx into nitrogen gas and water vapor - two harmless and natural components of the air we breathe.

The Environmental Protection Agency, OEMs and many trucking fleets have committed themselves to a cleaner environment by reducing NOx (oxides of nitrogen). To reduce NOx emissions that are harmful to the environment and public health, most new diesel-powered engines are equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.
With the introduction of the latest Environmental Protection Agency emissions levels limits in 2010, diesel engine manufacturers turned to a new technology to clean up nitrogen oxides in the exhaust stream.
Eagle Transport is one of the largest haulers of refined fuel on the eastern seaboard. This year, the 24/7 operation will make 500,000 shipments, delivering over four billion gallons of fuel along the way. All while maintaining a delivery record that is as pristine as their trademark fleet of glistening trucks.
