Musket Corp. Opens Diesel Exhaust Fluid Facility In West Texas

Rosalie Winnik - 25 May 2017

Musket Corporation, the trading and logistics arm of Love's, has opened a DEF wholesale bulk rack in Big Spring, Texas, making it the company's eighth DEF location. The statement below is the official press release issued by Love's on May 23rd:

West Texas now has a local and reliable access point for bulk diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). Musket Corporation, the trading and logistics arm of the Love’s Family of Companies, recently opened a DEF wholesale bulk rack in Big Spring, Texas, at 3400 W. 7th Street. The Big Spring facility is the company’s eighth DEF location.

“Musket is in the process of adding DEF facilities in select cities across the U.S. to provide Customers with reliable access to a high-quality product,” said Brian Hoover, manager of DEF for Musket. “Placing our newest DEF rack in Big Spring allows us to supply several Love’s Travel Stops in the region, including stores in nearby Midland and Odessa, as well as our third-party wholesale Customer base.”

DEF is a NOx abatement fluid that converts harmful emissions from diesel engines to nitrogen and water. Widespread use of DEF began in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Air Act. Diesel engine manufacturers have relied on selective catalytic reduction technology (SCR) since 2010 to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from exhaust gases.

Musket now operates eight DEF terminals across the United States with plans for several more openings this year. The facilities are strategically located close to Love's Travel Stops stores to easily provide 24/7 access to DEF. All facilities produce the highest quality product, meeting ISO 22241 standards.

DEF has been available at the pump alongside diesel at all Love's Travel Stop locations nationwide since 2010. Musket began producing DEF in 2014 to address increasing market demand, supply redundancy concerns and logistical optimization opportunities.
