DME (Dimethyl Ether)..Another Domestic Option for Fleets!

Dimethyl Ether, or DME, is a clean, odorless gas that can be liquified.  It can be produced from various renewable materials such as: biomass, water, and agricultural products.  It can also be produced from natural gas, coal, waste from pulp and paper mills.  DME has potential for use in electric power generation, and in domestic applications such as heating and cooking.  Recently, DME was approved for vehicle use by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), and is yet another domestically produced option for fueling fleets, especially in the heavy-duty sector.
