Integer Research to launch Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) locator for Brazil

Christopher Goodfellow - 6 January 2012

Emissions analyst Integer Research, which operates discoverDEF.com, has launched a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) locator website in Brazil, EncontreARLA.com.br.

The PROCONVE P7 emissions standards for heavy-duty vehicles in Brazil came into force January 2012. In response, manufacturers will begin to sell Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipped trucks and buses, and drivers will need to refill the DEF (named ARLA 32 in Brazil)  tank on their vehicles regularly.

This aftertreatment technology uses ARLA 32 to breakdown dangerous NOx emissions.

EncontreARLA.com.br will help drivers find ARLA 32 suppliers by providing a retail location search function. The team at EncontreARLA.com.br will collect and verify data from ARLA 32 suppliers, retail chains and organisations, listing the results on the website.

EnctonreARLA.com.br search function and information pages will go live in March.
