DME | Benefits

Clean
  
Efficient
Portable & Versatile

DME is a modern and safe source of energy which compares very favorably when compared with other energy sources in use or under consideration today. Below are summaries of some of the demonstrated benefits.

DME is Clean
 
Ultra clean DME diesel fuel provides smokeless combustion, low CO2 and 90% less NOx emissions than standard automotive fuels. DME is a colorless gas that is biodegradable, non-corrosive, and will not contaminate soil or aquifers in the event of a leak.
 
 
   
DME is Efficient  

According to many lifecycle analysis studies DME based on renewable feedstock is the most efficient fuel when the entire chain is taken into account. DME can be up to five times more efficient than traditional fuels, resulting in less energy wastage and better use of our resources. For automotive use, DME has the highest total efficiency of all synthetic liquid fuels (e.g. F-T diesel, methanol) and a 30% higher fuel economy than gasoline in passenger cars. Because it burns so cleanly, expensive exhaust aftertreatment devices are unnecessary.

 
DME is Portable  
DME can be transported, stored and used almost anywhere, does not require a fixed network and will not deteriorate over time.
 
 
 
   
DME is Safe  
Used for decades in the personal care industry (as a benign propellant in aerosols), DME has an excellent and long-term safety record. DME is non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic and virtually non-toxic. Like other fuels, DME is highly flammable but has proven to be extremely safe when handled properly.
 
   
DME is Versatile  

DME is a multi-purpose fuel and chemical feedstock that can be used a wide variety of applications, from automotive fuel and LPG substitute, to electric power generation and the production of olefins, synthesis gas and hydrogen.
