IndianOil inks pact with Cummins for DEF bulk dispensing

IndianOil has signed an agreement with Cummins Technologies India for bulk dispensing of IndianOil’s Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), branded as IOC ClearBlue, in their advanced engines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. Subimal Mondal, Executive Director (Lubes), IndianOil, and Anjali Pandey, Vice President (Engine Business Unit and Component Business), Cummins India, signed the agreement at Mumbai.

On the occasion, Mondal said, “With this collaboration, IOC ClearBlue is recommended for use in all diesel vehicles that have Cummins engines or any other engines with Cummins SCR technology. IOC ClearBlue adheres to the highest quality standards by meeting IOC 22241 and AdBlue certification.”

Speaking on the occasion, Anjali Pandey said, “At Cummins, we understand the need of the market. With this initiative, IndianOil’s innovation in a diesel exhaust fluid - IOC ClearBlue - delivers superior results that ensure emission controls. In the new emission era of BS-VI, all diesel vehicles would require IOC ClearBlue and the right quality would extensively help in controlling the NOx emitted. Also, the easy availability of genuine high-grade IOC ClearBlue at the fuel stations will ensure availability and consistent quality across the country.”

India will shift to BS–VI auto fuel emission norms from April 1, 2020. The automobile companies are effecting several technical changes in diesel vehicles such as provision for fitting diesel particulate filter (DEF), SCR and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The SCR systems shall require DEF, an aqueous urea solution, for effective reduction in NOx emissions.

Bulk dispensing of DEF is in line with global trends and offers better cost viability to truck and bus owners, as compared to packed products. The technical knowledge of Cummins combined with the bulk dispensing expertise of IndianOil shall help offer a world-class product to the customers across the country.
