About DME

Dimethyl ether is a manufactured, rather than naturally occurring alternative fuel. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless compound that can be produced from natural gas, or from CO2-neutral biomass. It is non-toxic and non-carcinogenic. Its molecular formula is C2OH6 and it behaves similar to propane. It is stored at ambient temperatures and can be stored and transported in tanks similar to those used in the propane industry.

DME produces no soot when burned and will not require a diesel particulate filter. It degrades rapidly in the atmosphere and is not a global warming agent..
