DME is derived from the methanol produced during the chemical conversion of coal, natural gas, or biomass.
DME can be blended with LPG
Conceivably, DME could use the entire existing infrastructure for propane.
Its high cetane number makes it likely suited for deisel engines.
As a fuel source, DME has the potential to meet a broad range of energy needs, at power plants, within the home, and in diesel engines, to name a few.
DME is difficult to guage at this extremely early time, but there is some potential for using DME as a hydrogen source for fuel cells.
