Quebec-Based Enerkem Touts Bio-DME Production (Ind. Report)
Enerkem
Date: 2018-09-12
Montreal-based waste-to-ethanol and chemicals producer specialist Enerkem is reporting the production of a clean, renewable bio-dimethyl ether (Bio-DME), a by-product of biomethanol, that could replace the use of diesel fuel in the transportation sector.

Using its proprietary thermochemical technology, the company tested and validated the production of fuel-grade bio-DME made from unrecoverable carbon-rich municipal solid waste at its Innovation Centre in Westbury, Quebec.

Bio-DME offers a 20 pct higher cetane rating on average than diesel or bio-diesel fuels and, when combusted, does not produce sulfur oxide (SOx) or fine particles, and contributes to lower emissions from other harmful residual pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) that are mainly produced from the combustion of fossil-based fuels.
