The IDA's free online series provides an excellent opportunity to learn, and stay informed about, current developments related to DME production, technology, logistics, components, specifications and legislation for all applications. The high-value one hour briefings from DME producers, project and technology developers, experts, strategists and stakeholders cover current developments across the entire industry value chain and in dynamic related areas, including renewable methanol, renewable DME and LPG/propane-DME blending, where some of the most compelling commercial opportunities are being pursued.
The joint final event of both the C3-Mobility and REDIFUEL projects, along with a report from the ongoing LONGRUN project, features two updates on DME-related research and development in addition to numerous presentations reporting on work involving the utilization of other renewable feedstocks, sustainable fuels, high-efficiency engines and drivelines.
On day 2 of the free online event Rebecca Groen (SHV Energy) and Stefan Schmidt (Primagas) will provide information on plans for the production and distribution of rDME, while Werner Willems (Ford Motor Company) will give an update on the company's work on DME applications for light commercial vehicles as part of the C3-Mobility project.
There is no cost to register for the event.
The industry's flagship event provides a comprehensive look at developments worldwide connected with DME's production, commercialization and use, with a special emphasis on investments being made now to enable and support renewable DME (rDME) production capacity, infrastructure, regulations and standards.
Supported by FPT Industrial and the Swiss Federal Technology Laboratories (Empa), the event will take place in Zurich and the nearby Empa-Akademie, with a program that includes an international conference, LPG-DME blend workshop, vehicle display and optional site visit program to facilities involved in FPT Industrial's DME project.
