What is it?
LTZ Green DEF ™ is a diesel exhaust fluid manufactured with 32.5% high-purity, biomethane-based urea and 67.5% deionized water designed for use in passenger vehicles, trucks, construction, and agricultural equipment. It is compatible with all equipment using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
Why use it?
LTZ Green DEF ™ prevents SCR breakdown, reduces harmful nitrogen oxide emissions by 90%, and even improves fuel efficiency by up to 5%. It is a simple-to-use, low-cost, clean solution for meeting NOx limits according to the Clean Air Act and latest Euro V and VI emission standards for heavy-duty engines, and the latest Euro 6 emission standards for diesel passenger cars.
Producing our DEF from biomethane, CO2 emissions of DEF are reduced over its lifecycle. Using LTZ Green DEF™ instead of fossil DEF mitigates 1.8 tons of CO2 emissions per year per vehicle.
LTZ Green DEF ™ complies with the ISO-22241-1 specification for DEF, is VDA AdBlue & API DEF Standard compliant and meets or exceeds OEM specifications.
Ready to go
Green DEF produced from biomethane can be used today as it is chemically identical to the fossil DEF product. This enables the continued use of the existing supply chain, infrastructure, and diesel engine technology
From the source to production to delivery and fulfillment we only work with vetted and seasoned experts and organizations to ensure the highest quality.
LTZ Green DEF ™ in numbers
By switching production from natural gas to biomethane, CO2 emissions of DEF are reduced over its lifecycle. Even better, by using biomethane produced from manure it becomes CO2 negative. Thus, the more a fleet drives using green DEF, the more CO2 is sucked out of the atmosphere thus actively helping to reverse climate change.

Scopes in Scope
Why the GHG Protocol matters
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is the world's most widely used carbon emissions reporting standard. It uses a 3-scopes approach for classifying your emissions into direct emissions from owned or controlled sources, and indirect emissions linked to the value chain of the reporting company.
How to make GHG work for you with Green DEF
If you run your own diesel vehicle fleet, the high benefits of carbon-negative Green DEF are reported into the scope 1 "direct" and scope 3 "indirect" emissions categories. If a subcontractor of yours uses LTZ Green DEF™ for its fleet operations, you report these benefits into your scope 3 "indirect" emissions category.
Developing a GHG & carbon strategy
As manufacturer of green DEF and carbon-negative products we have made it our mission to assist all organizations to decarbonize. If you currently do not have a carbon or green house gas (GHG) strategy you might be leaving money on the table. We are happy to assist you in examining the potential for your operation.
LTZ Green DEF ™ Technical Specifications
1.09 — (Water = 1)
0.6 H2O,>1 — (Air = 1)
Colorless Clear Liquid
None to Slight Ammonia
DO NOT MIX WITH DIESEL FUEL.
Optimal storage temperature: -11˚C to 25˚C.
DEF will freeze at -11°C.
Avoid direct exposure to sunlight.
ISO 22241 standards require the use of only stainless steel and/or certain plastics, such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene, to store DEF in order to prevent contamination and SCR failure.
Materials specifically not recommended include non-ferrous metals and alloys (copper, aluminum, magnesium, silver, zinc, and lead), solders containing non-ferrous metals, and nickel-coated plastics and metals.
See our Material Safety Data Sheet for more information on material compatibility and exposure instructions.
LTZ Green DEF ™ conforms to the ISO-22241-1 specification for DEF, is API & VD compliant and meets OEM specifications. We ensure a quality product with an extensive, redundant quality management process, controlling specifications through the entire product channel — from manufacturing through distribution to the end-user.
Why carbon-negative DEF is the future
Green DEF produced from biomethane can be used today as it is chemically identical to the fossil DEF product. This enables the continued use of the existing supply chain, infrastructure, and diesel engine technology. By switching production from natural gas to biomethane, CO2 emissions of DEF are reduced over its lifecycle. Even better, by using biomethane produced from manure it becomes CO2 negative (-0.8 kg CO2/kg DEF) — reducing emissions by up to 300% versus fossil DEF.
The more a fleet drives using green DEF, the more CO2 is sucked out of the atmosphere thus actively helping to reverse climate change. For example, for a truck running 100,000 km p.a. (or 62,000 miles p.a.) using about 30 tons of diesel p.a., its DEF consumption will be around 1.5 tons per year. Using green DEF instead of fossil DEF mitigates 1.8 tons of CO2 emissions per year per vehicle.
The Problem: A costly hidden carbon footprint
Conventional DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) is made from natural gas and thus holds a large hidden CO2 footprint. In the coming years, this CO2 footprint will have to be offset by operators through CO2 certificates, whose price is rising fast.
The Solution: Carbon-negative LTZ Green DEF™
By switching production from natural gas to biomethane, CO2 emissions of DEF are reduced over its lifecycle. Even better, by using biomethane produced from manure it becomes CO2 negative (-0.8 kg CO2/kg DEF) — reducing emissions by up to 300% versus fossil DEF.
