Two large-scale waste-to-DME projects
Enerkem and Dimeta are conducting feasibility studies for the development of two large scale projects that will convert waste into renewable and recycled carbon dimethyl ether (DME).
The impact of the DME produced from the two projects combined would be the equivalent of significantly reducing the carbon footprint of over one million LPG heated homes, when it is blended in with LPG.
Enerkem’s product diversity demonstrated
The development of these two projects with Dimeta is an example of our technology platform’s flexibility as a key enabler for hard-to-abate sectors. Our joint projects can form the basis for further project developments globally within the off-grid energy market and are an opportunity to expand Enerkem’s waste-to-methanol platform.
Sustainable future of off-grid energy
DME is a clean-burning fuel poised to decarbonize off-grid energy sectors, offering versatile applications in heating, cooking, transport, and industry.
As DME is chemically similar to Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), it can be blended with it up to 20% and easily integrated into existing LPG supply chains, providing a seamless pathway to significantly reduce GHG emissions.
