CRC’s Carbon TerraVault (CTV) entered into a storage-only Carbon Dioxide Management Agreement (CDMA) with InEnTec Inc., an industry leader in gasification systems that economically and responsibly turns the world's waste into valuable green products, fuels and energy.

The CDMA contemplates that InEnTec will build a new renewable dimethyl ether (rDME) production facility at the proposed CTV Clean Energy Park at Elk Hills in Kern County, California, and CTV would initially sequester a minimum of 100,000 metric tons per annum (MTPA) of carbon dioxide (CO2) from InEnTec’s facility in the CTV I carbon storage vault. The proposed rDME facility is expected to produce 80 to 100 tons per day of rDME from biomass and other waste materials to help support the decarbonization of California’s economy and its transportation sector.

What is rDME?

rDME is a fuel that can be produced from a wide range of sustainable feedstocks such as waste and residues, using gasification and catalytic synthesis, and can be used as an alternative to diesel in compatible compression ignition diesel engines. rDME can reduce GHG emissions by up to 85% when compared to diesel which will significantly improve air quality.
