NEW DELHI, INDIA: SABIC and Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) said they will provide Technical Grade Urea (TGU) to manufacture AUS-32 (Aqueous Urea Solution) used in diesel vehicular systems to reduce NO2 emission by over 70 percent to meet the stringent norms of Bharat Stage VI vehicles.

The collaboration supports the Indian automobile industry in reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet the Bharat Stage VI (BS-VI) standards, which regulates vehicular emissions in India.
Superior quality and high purity of TGU made by SABIC can help oil marketing companies deliver fine quality solutions to their customers without compromising on the diesel exhaust fluid quality.

“Bharat Stage emission norms moved from BS IV to BS VI which threw up many challenges for the automotive industry. Our high quality solution fits perfectly in meeting the emission norms in collaboration with the oil industry. We take pride in collaborating with IOCL and considering it a major step towards keeping India at par with the rest of the world regarding vehicular emissions,” said Janardhanan Ramanujalu, vice president & regional head, SABIC South Asia & ANZ.

“As part of our commitment towards sustainability, SABIC has invested in Saudi Arabia-based facilities to produce high-quality TGU meeting the global benchmark for reducing vehicular emissions. The arrangement with IOCL will support a sustainable transition to and compliance with BS-VI standards for all diesel vehicles, reducing air pollution and helping meet the larger climate goals,” said Sanjay Singh, head, Agri Nutrients India business, SABIC.

SABIC also supplies TGU to other leading manufacturers of AUS-32 in India to support the Indian automobile industry in meeting BS-VI standards. As per the BS-VI standards, all heavy diesel vehicles with 2000 cc engine capacity or more will require a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) converter to use AUS-32 solutions by reducing nitrogen oxide emission by more than 70 percent.

SABIC’s collaboration, especially with IOCL, will make the AUS-32 solutions readily available in the market and can be refilled by heavy diesel vehicles on the go and is a viable process.
