  • The Union Minister of Science and Technology and Earth Sciences recently inaugurated the Dimethyl ether (DME) fired “AditiUrjaSanch” unit along with the DME-LPG blended fuel cylinders.
  • It is a newly designed Burner.
  • The new design is efficient for both DME and the blend of DME and LPG.
  • Novel design and flexible air access.
  • The new nozzle design allows optimum oxygen access for combustion.
  • The angles at which nozzles are placed maximize the heat transfer area across the utensils.
  • Optimum flame velocity can be obtained.
  • The length of the flame (high, low, and medium) can be adjusted by altering the oxygen ingress.
  • Dimethyl ether (DME) is an ultra-clean fuel.
  • CSIR-NCL has developed nation’s first kind of DME pilot plant with 20-24Kg/day capacity.
  • The conventional LPG burner is not suitable for DME combustion as DME density is different than LPG. 
  • To address this issue, CSIR- NCL’s “AditiUrjaSanch” was developed.
