Montréal-based and a world-leading waste-to-biofuel and chemical and green chemicals, Enerkem has announced a new technological breakthrough with various environmental and economic benefits.
It has successfully produced a clean, renewable bio-dimethyl ether (Bio-DME), a by-product of biomethanol, that could help address global climate change efficiently by replacing the use of diesel fuel in the transportation sector. In addition to the various environmental and economic advantages, there are many possible applications for waste-derived bio-DME fuel. For example, it could be used to replace diesel fuels used in cars, trucks, trains or even ships, while providing better, cleaner combustion. Enerkem intends to further develop and optimize this latest innovation while evaluating its potential commercial applications.
