Oberon Fuels receives $500,000 grant from San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District for DME production

June 13, 2013 |

In California, Oberon Fuels has received a $500,000 grant from the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District to produce fuel-grade DME at its facilities in California. Working with its partners, Volvo Trucks in North America and Safeway, Oberon will provide DME produced from biogas for Safeway’s trucking operations. Oberon has developed a patented, skid-mounted, modular design for DME production. This small-scale process enables the development of regional fuel markets that can service local customers engaged in regional haul, initially bypassing the need for a national infrastructure. For the grant collaboration, Oberon plans to produce DME from such as animal, food, and agricultural waste.
