We are seeking submissions from industry on the security of Australia’s diesel exhaust fluid market.
Modern diesel engine technology requires diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), also known as AdBlue, to control nitrogen oxide pollutants. The Australian Government is interested in better understanding the market for refined technical grade urea, which is the main component of DEF.
In late 2021 and early 2022 global supply pressures highlighted limited flexibility in Australia’s DEF market. This had the potential to cause harmful economic impacts by disrupting Australia’s diesel-dependent transport and logistics system, particularly heavy trucking and other modern diesel vehicles that require DEF.
Read more about this request for information (RFI) and submit a response on our consultation hub.
Submissions close midday AEST on Friday 22 July 2022.
