Energy Minister assures local manufacturers have AdBlue crisis ‘in hand’

The federal government says locally produced supplies of a crucial diesel exhaust fluid have brought a potential transport crisis under control.

A shortage of AdBlue was initially caused across the country when exports from China froze, forcing local industry to step up.

The lagging supplies threatened to bring tucks to a halt, posing a wider threat to the nation’s supply chain.

The federal government reached a deal with Queensland fertiliser manufacturer Incitec Pivot Limited to ramp up production.

“We certainly have it in hand,” Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor told Neil Breen.

“We’ve got Incitec now producing three million litres a week. That’s 75 per cent of the Australian market.

“We’ve got a B-double leaving Brisbane every 20 minutes from Incitec’s facilities to get around Australia.”
