OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy company in Southeast Europe, has started the production of AdBlue, an essential product for reducing the noxes emitted by diesel engines. In the first phase, AdBlue will be sold in OMV and Petrom filling stations, and from next year it will also be sold in other networks. The use of AdBlue reduces nitrogen oxide emissions from diesel engines by up to 90%.

The company thus meets the increasing demand for this product, against the background of the increase in the number of commercial vehicles in Romania.

“The start of AdBlue production was a priority for us as we expect the demand for this product to increase. We expect the demand for AdBlue on the Romanian market to increase by more than 30% by 2027 compared to this year, to a level of approximately 130 million liters,” said Radu Căprău, Member of the Directorate responsible for Refining & Marketing .

AdBlue is a standard product used for modern diesel engines. It is composed of about 1/3 urea and 2/3 demineralized water. The new production capacity is located in the south of Bucharest, and the investments required for the project amounted to approximately 800,000 euros.
