Abstract

Dimethyl ether (DME) as a clean fuel seems to be a superior candidate for high-quality diesel fuel in near future. In this study, a comprehensive three-dimensional dynamic heterogeneous model developed to simulate the flow behavior and catalytic coupling reactions for synthesis of the DME from hydrogenation of the CO and CO2, dehydration ...
