IndianOil Corp. (IOC) has signed an agreement with Cummins Technologies India Pvt Ltd for bulk dispensing of IndianOil’s DEF, branded as IOC ClearBlue, in its advanced engines with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.
Subimal Mondal, IndianOil Executive Director, and Cummins India Vice President Anjali Pandey, recently signed the agreement in Mumbai.
Mondal said: “With this collaboration, IOC ClearBlue is recommended for use in all diesel vehicles that have Cummins engines or any other engines with Cummins SCR technology. IOC ClearBlue adheres to the highest quality standards by meeting IOC 22241 and AdBlue certification.”
Pandey added: “At Cummins, we understand the need of the market. With this initiative, IndianOil’s innovation in a diesel exhaust fluid delivers superior results that ensure emissions controls. In the new emission era of BS-VI, all diesel vehicles would require IOC ClearBlue and the right quality would extensively help in controlling the NOx emitted. Also, the easy availability of genuine high-grade IOC ClearBlue at the fuel stations will ensure availability and consistent quality across the country.”
India will shift to BS–VI auto fuel emission norms from 1 April 2020. The automobile companies are effecting several technical changes in diesel vehicles such as provision for fitting diesel particulate filter, selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The SCR systems shall require DEF, an aqueous urea solution, for effective reduction in NOx emissions.
Bulk dispensing of DEF is in line with global trends and offers better cost viability to truck and bus owners, as compared to packed products.
