About Diesel Exhaust Fluid and Selective Catalytic Reduction
Environment Canada’s harmonisation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s
2010 emissions standards for on-highway vehicles has led to the widespread adoption of
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology by medium and heavy-duty truck
manufacturers. SCR works by spraying DEF into the exhaust stream to destroy dangerous NOx
chemicals using an advanced catalyst system, significantly reducing pollution.
DEF is a non-toxic solution comprised of 32.5% pure urea in 67.5% de-ionized water.
