One Molecule, Many Benefits

Dimethyl ether, or DME, packs a big punch for a small molecule!

Puts Waste to Work: DME can be made from a variety of waste sources, including; animal waste, food waste and waste from paper and pulp manufacturing.

Decarbonizes Transportation: Renewable DME is a clean replacement for diesel fuel, reduces the carbon footprint of propane and can unlock the potential of hydrogen fuel cells.

Clears the Air: Renewable DME reduces harmful pollutants that contribute to poor air quality and health issues for people around the world.

Creates Opportunity: Advancing from development stage to production stage manufacturing for the distribution and utilization of rDME creates family-wage jobs and economic development.

Ready for the road

There are roughly 200,000 propane vehicles on the road today that could benefit from a rDME/propane blend.
