LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The world’s largest chemical distributor today announced that it will be providing urea to the North American trucking industry in time for the EPA2010 emissions standards.

Brenntag, which claims to be the largest distributor of automotive-grade urea in the world, said it will be ready to meet the trucking industry’s demands by 2010. Urea will be required by truck fleets and owner/operators who opt for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) in 2010. That’s the technology that Volvo Group and Daimler have announced they will adopt in order to comply with the next round of EPA emissions requirements. Cummins will also use SCR on its mid-range engines.

In response, Brenntag has launched a program called “Urea 2010” which the company says will ensure there are adequate supplies of urea for OEMs and fleet operators throughout the US and Canada.

“Brenntag understands the complexity of a start-up (for urea) and we are applying our experience and knowledge to successfully launch a customer-friendly package to manufacturers and fleet operators of SCR trucks,” said Chet Murphy, vice-president of market development at Brenntag. “While North American operations have different challenges than in Europe, we don’t see any of these challenges as show-stoppers.”

The company announced it will focus on the “fast and reliable delivery” of urea, offering partial and full tank deliveries for fleets and suppliers. It also ensured customers that its product will meet ISO and AUS standards.

As 2010 draws nearer, the company is planning to finalize distribution deals through truck stops. More information about the company is available at
