Using ‘AdBlue’ on plant machinery

Construction is a key contributor to air pollution and contractors should seek ways to minimise emissions from their activities.

See the examples below for how one site achieved this:

  • The project team are piloting a scheme whereby only forklifts using AdBlue can be used on site.
  • AdBlue reduces the harmful nitrogen oxide emissions of diesel engines, converting harmful mono-nitrogen oxide toxins in diesel vehicles into nitrogen and water vapour.
  • AdBlue is widely used on new cars with diesel engines but it is not as common on plant vehicles.
