OMV Petrom started the local production of AdBlue, following an investment of approximately EUR 800.000


OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy company in South-Eastern Europe, has begun production of AdBlue, an essential product for reducing emissions of diesel engines. In the first phase, AdBlue will be sold in OMV and Petrom filling stations and starting next year it will be also sold in other networks.

The company thus meets the growing demand for this product, amid the increase in the number of commercial vehicles in Romania.

Radu Căprău, Member of the Directorate responsible for Refining & Marketing: “The start of AdBlue production was a priority for us as we expect the demand for this product to increase. We expect the demand for AdBlue in the Romanian market will increase by over 30% by 2027 compared to this year, to a level of about 130 million liters.”

AdBlue is a standard product used for modern diesel engines. It is composed of about 1/3 urea and 2/3 demineralized water. The new production capacity is located in the south of Bucharest, and the investments necessary for the project amounted to approximately EUR 800.000.
