History – BlueCat®
There are different emission standards around the world, setting specific emission limits for the four main pollutants from diesel engines:-
- Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx)
- Particulate Matter (PM)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Hydrocarbons (HC)
In Europe, the first of these Standards came into effect in 1990 and emissions limits are constantly being reduced to improve air quality. The use of AdBlue® came with the introduction of Euro IV in 2005/6 and the latest Euro VI standard will be implemented as from 2013-14.
In the USA, emissions from vehicles are regulated by the Clean Air Act.
In Australia and New Zealand, the emission standards follow those of Europe with a few years delay.
Brockley Group Ltd. purchased the BlueCat® brand in 2007 and immediately commenced production of AdBlue® in Ireland using only the highest grade of Automotive Grade Urea and de-ionised water.
We have constantly upgraded our production facilities and the Irish Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and innovation opened our new eco-friendly and innovative Cleantech production facility in July 2014. The new production facility is located just outside Dublin, near Rathcoole on the N7 (exit 5)
Brockley expanded the BlueCat® brand into Australia in 2012 when they signed a production and marketing agreement with Tru-Blu Oil Pty., based in Bayswater, Melbourne.
