The prevalence of soot, particulate matter, and other pollutants around the world is a growing health crisis that claims tens of thousands of lives and costs hundreds of billions each year. Diesel vehicles are among the biggest contributors to these high levels of pollution.
At the same time, waste streams generated by agriculture, manufacturing and growing populations are creating new challenges around the world.
Oberon was founded to help address the long-term human health and climate issues arising from these energy and waste challenges. Oberon’s Dimethyl Ether (DME) fuel is a cost-effective, low-carbon, zero-soot alternative to diesel that can be manufactured from readily available organic waste streams. In addition to being a diesel replacement, DME is also a cost-effective carrier for hydrogen, offering a pathway to zero-emission vehicles.
We are part of a growing coalition of forward-looking vehicle manufacturers, infrastructure developers and fuel providers that are committed to making DME a key to the long-term sustainability of local, and global, economies.
