FLEDGED - Efficient and low-cost process for the production of DME from biomass
TNO works as part of the FLEDGED project to validate the sorption-enhanced dimethyl ether synthesis (SEDMES) process at 3 kg/h scale for the direct conversion of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide with hydrogen into DME at high yields. Through the removal of water by a solid adsorbent, SEDMES has shown an increased yield of DME, an improved selectivity to DME over methanol, and a strongly reduced CO2 content in the product.
