A briefing by two contributing authors to the joint report just published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Methanol Institute, along with an update from Oberon Fuels on its project to produce the first rDME in the United States.
his role as Chief Technology Officer of Chemrec, Ingvar Landälv led production of the world's first rDME at the company's plant in Piteå, Sweden, fuel used in heavy-duty vehicle applications as part of the BioDME project.
Oberon Fuels has recently upgraded its existing DME pilot plant to demonstration scale to enable the first production of rDME in the US, with a target production capacity of 1.6 million gallons per year.
The IRENA/MI publication - Innovation Outlook: Renewable Methanol - builds upon IRENA's 2013 report on the subject, with a focus on the production of renewable methanol and rDME via both biogas/biomass gasification routes as well as from green hydrogen generated from renewable electricity and CO2 capture/use. The report is being shared with policy leaders and energy system modelers from 161 IRENA member states, and to inform high-level policy discussions on low-carbon options for hard to abate sectors.
