BASF launches AdBlue ZeroPCF on the market as the first AdBlue product with reduced carbon footprint

BASF is now the first manufacturer to offer AdBlue as a ZeroPCF variant with a certified CO2 footprint (product carbon footprint = PCF) of <0.05 kg per kilogram of AdBlue. This value includes the amount of CO2 emitted in connection with the product during production up to the site gate (“cradle-to-gate”).

The market standard for fossil products in Europe is at least 0.4 kg.


The PCF reduction of AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is achieved through the use of renewable energies and raw materials based on a mass balance approach and has been certified by TÜV Rheinland on the basis of ISO standard 14067:2018. REDcert2, a certification system for biomass, also certifies that AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF meets the required mass balance specifications.

AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is now available for industrial customers such as freight forwarders or the automotive industry as a tanker train product, enabling them to reduce their scope 3.1 footprint. For end customers’ diesel vehicles, AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is available in all standard packaging sizes, such as the five-liter canister.

AdBlue ZeroPCF by BASF is a further step on the sustainability roadmap of BASF’s Monomers division which was announced last year. This envisages developing at least one circular solution for every major product line by 2025.
