NFF applauds Government’s partnership with Incitec Pivot to sure up AdBlue uncertainty

Today, Federal Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister, Angus Taylor, has announced a government agreement with fertiliser manufacturer Incitec Pivot to secure local production of refined urea for the supply of diesel exhaust fluid (AdBlue) in Australia.

“This is a welcome relief to potential supply disruptions to AdBlue that is used in some farm machinery and on-road vehicles used by farmers,” NFF CEO Tony Mahar said.

“We commend the Federal Government and Minister Taylor for acting decisively to secure domestic sources of urea for the productions of AdBlue.”

“Along with the stock already on hand, new shipments secured in the last month, and domestic capabilities coming online, farmers and the agricultural sector can move back to a business usual approach without the fear of supply chain disruptions,” Mr Mahar said.
