READING, Penn. — Terra Environmental Technologies and Brenntag North America have formed a strategic alliance to distribute diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to the North American market.
DEF will be required for trucks using selective catalytic reduction to meet EPA2010 emissions standards. Under the deal, Terra’s TerraCair DEF will be distributed through the Brenntag distribution network, the companies have announced.
“The exclusive arrangement between TET and Brenntag will provide tremendous benefits to DEF customers,” said Terra president and CEO, Michael Bennett. “The two organizations will tightly control the distribution process to ensure that we meet the high quality standards required of diesel exhaust fluid.”
“Brenntag is pleased to have secured a single, reliable source of high quality, domestically produced DEF to meet the needs of this rapidly emerging market,” added Brenntag North America president and CEO, Bill Fidler. “The alliance also addresses the two primary concerns that customers have been communicating to us as 2010 rapidly approaches, namely, will we be able to obtain product efficiently, and will it meet stringent quality requirements?”
TerraCair DEF will be distributed in small packages, 55-gallon drums, 275-gallon IBCs and in bulk quantities, the companies claim.
