Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Reduce emissions safely and affordably.

Many of our customers have recently been required or encouraged to reduce diesel engine nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx). Byproducts of fuel combustion, nitrogen oxides have historically been a significant contributor to air pollution.

Thanks to new combustion technologies such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR), businesses that rely on diesel can reduce their long-term NOx emissions safely and affordably. This technology, which has for decades been used to successfully reduce NOx emissions from stationary devices such as industrial boilers, has quickly become the new standard for diesel trucks and train locomotives.

R.D. Holder Oil Company is proud to be one of Ohio and Northern Kentucky's few large-scale distributors of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which is required to make full use of SCR diesel engine benefits. Semis with SCR systems will automatically lock without DEF, so economical refilling of DEF tanks should be a primary concern for commercial transport businesses.

We provide DEF in various packaged quantities, including handheld sizes, 55 gallon drums and 275-330 gallon totes. We can also supply storage and dispensing equipment to protect against any potential contamination and corrosion. We can help you get your own cost-effective, secure DEF supply up and running.

Customers who purchase DEF in totes for their fleet can expect to save an average of 30 percent versus having their drivers refill DEF at the truck stop. In addition, both on-road and off-road vehicles with SCR systems save an average of 5 percent in fuel costs over their predecessors.

Considering SCR vehicles for your business but concerned about added costs like DEF? Our experts can help explain the pros and cons of making an upgrade. Call us toll-free at 1-800-243-0432 for more information and objective advice.
