READING, Pa. — Brenntag North America will offer users of Diesel Exhaust Fluid a free service to pick up empty DEF totes from any previous supplier and will offer a special price to replace the tote with TerraCair Diesel Exhaust Fluid, the company has announced.

By having a method to dispose of empty containers and receive a discount the customer benefits in two ways, according to Chet Murphy, vice president of market development.

“By recycling the tote, cost savings are passed on to our customers and we help the environment by reducing the need to dispose of used containers” Murphy said.

As customer demand for DEF grows, so does the concern for disposal of used containers. Murphy said, noting that DEF suppliers typically offer one-way delivery, leaving the burden of disposal on the customer who must pay to have the empty totes removed.

“Customers who take advantage of this service from Brenntag can be assured that totes are quality checked, inspected and returned in tact with the appropriate fittings to meet their requirements,” Murphy said.

Totes will be processed and filled with TerraCair Ultrapure Diesel Exhaust Fluid at one of Brenntag’s 100-plus facilities which are audited to the highest quality standards for storage, handling and packaging of DEF.

Brenntag is a global market supplier in full-line chemical distribution.

Headquartered in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, Brenntag operates a global network with more than 400 locations in more than 60 countries with 2009 sales of $8.9 billion.
