Basics

DME is the best alternative fuel that readily addresses the many issues associated with the ongoing use of diesel fuel. 

  • DME is readily synthesized from abundant natural gas and biomass feedstock using well-established chemical processes. 
  • DME is benign, evaporates after a spill, burns smoke free with no sulfur and reduced nitrous oxide and generates 1-2 liters of water for each liter of fuel produced.
  • European and North American governments have made the reduction of CO2 emissions, air pollution (NOx emissions) and particulate matter (PM) a high priority.
