Simple Fuel
DME is a simple, clean-burning fuel. With diesel-like performance, easy handling and rapid refueling properties, DME offers an excellent diesel alternative that is produced domestically from a variety of methane sources.
Simple Engine
DME compression ignites in a diesel engine without the use of spark plugs, increasing engine efficiency and resulting in diesel-like power and torque. Because of DME’s clean-burning properties, no diesel particulate filter (DPF) is required, reducing the after-treatment equipment and associated maintenance.
Simple Infrastructure
DME’s easy handling properties allow for simple infrastructure. DME can be transported and dispensed using slightly modified tanks and dispensers from existing infrastructure. DME has diesel-like fueling times with NO expensive, complicated cryogenics or high compression.

Oberon, Urban Health, & Climate Change

Dimethyl ether (DME) is an organic compound with the formula CH3OCH3

The prevalence of soot, particulate matter, and other pollutants in cities 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 the single biggest contributor to these high levels of pollution in urban areas and a major contributor to the buildup of greenhouse gases (GHG) in our atmosphere.

Oberon was founded to help address the long-term human health and climate issues arising from the prevalent use of diesel fuel in cities around the world. Oberon’s Dimethyl Ether (DME) is a cost-effective, low-carbon, zero-soot alternative to diesel that helps improve human health, reduces overall emissions and ensures the long-term sustainability of cities.
