Market Opportunities for DEF Storage and Dispensing


The market for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) continues to expand rapidly. The growth is driven by the ever increasing number of engines that require DEF in order to operate. And because nearly all new diesel engines need to use DEF, fleet operators of all sizes and shapes are looking for their best options for storing and dispensing it.  

Clean Diesel Engines Use DEF

DEF is injected into the exhaust of diesel engines from a separate on-board container to reduce NOx emissions in a process referred to as selective catalytic reduction (SCR). In addition to all on-highway vehicles, these applications are among those that require SCR-equipped diesel engines according to federal emissions standards in the United States:

·         Off highway mining and construction equipment


·         Agricultural and farming equipment


·         Stationary generators


·         Rail and Marine engines

Storing DEF for dispensing requires special care. DEF is a solution made of high purity urea and deionized water. It is non-toxic and safe to handle. But DEF can corrode some metals and needs to be stored in a manner to keep temperatures between 12°F and 86°F.
