Renewable dimethyl ether (rDME) has a number of qualities that make it an excellent carrier molecule for transporting hydrogen to power a new generation of fuel-cell electric vehicles and to provide increased supplies of renewable hydrogen:
Altogether, rDME overcomes some of the biggest barriers inhibiting the widespread use of hydrogen for transportation fuel, including: access to renewable feedstocks; modular, scalable production; and energy-dense, cost-effective storage and transport. Our novel approach to renewable hydrogen production promises similarities to the impact that distributed, rooftop solar has had on decentralizing industrial power generation.
With a single molecule, Oberon can not only reduce carbon emissions from transportation today, but also accelerate the development of the hydrogen economy and a net-zero carbon future.
A more detailed description of the potential for DME to play a multifaceted role in a cleaner, zero-emissions transportation future is described in our Medium post.
