Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Storage Tank
Essentially, a DEF tank and AdBlue® storage tank are the same thing. Diesel exhaust fluid is the generic term for the aqueous urea and deionized water solution. AdBlue® is a branded DEF solution registered by the German Association of the Automotive Industry and is widely used worldwide but most notably in Europe. Buying DEF solution from a reputable brand such as AdBlue® is essential for the maintenance of your vehicle

ADBLUE® STORAGE REQUIREMENTS AND REGULATIONS
AdBlue® is very polluting to surface water and groundwater. Due to its corrosive nature AdBlue® must be stored in high-density Polyethylene, polypropylene or stainless steel containers.
Currently, there aren’t any enforced AdBlue® storage regulations in the UK. However, the Environmental Agency has issued storage guidelines and under the Anti-Pollution Works Regulations they can issue a notice enforcing appropriate improvements.
The Environmental Agency guidelines state:
• your container, pipework and dispenser equipment are suitable for use with urea
• you have secondary containment for the container and ancillary equipment (i.e. a bunded tank)
• the dispensing area drainage is isolated from surface water drains
• you have a trigger nozzle with an auto shutoff to dispense AdBlue®. Make sure that the nozzle can not be left in the open position
• you have appropriate emergency equipment to deal with large and small spills.
• you have an emergency plan and suitable training for dealing with spillages or other accidents
All of our storage tanks for AdBlue® are manufactured to comply with these guidelines. The tanks are bunded with a secondary containment and are made from recyclable polyethylene. We also offer spill control kits.
