The Alternative Fuel for the Future
Dimethyl Ether (“DME”) (CH3OCH3) is a non-toxic chemical with a wide range of uses. It is a clean and economical chemical, which can be produced from various resources such as natural gas, coal or biomass through gas synthesis. We rely primarily on coal as a raw material for our Methanol production, and use Methanol as a feedstock for DME production.
At room temperature, DME is a colourless gas that can be easily and safely stored as a liquid in pressurised containers similar to the storage of LPG. DME is believed to be an environmentally-friendly fuel with lower smoke emission rates compared to Liquefied Petroleum Gas (“LPG”) and diesel.
