Vietnam slated for production of dimethyl ether

BLUEFUELENERGY.COM: As reported in the Viet Nam News, a consortium of international companies have formed a new energy company in Vietnam under the banner Sao Nam Petro. The conglomerate will focus on oil and gas exploration, pipelines and other projects. One of those other projects will be to build a plant producing dimethyl ether. Vietnam is a net importer of LPG and the production of dimethyl ether is seen as a way to reduce these imports using clean technology.
