New York City Department of Sanitation to Demo DME Truck

In collaboration with the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) and Oberon Fuels, Mack Trucks recently began a demonstration to test the performance of a Dimethyl Ether (DME)-powered Mack® Pinnacle™ model. DSNY is the first Mack customer to evaluate the non-toxic, clean-burning alternative fuel.

DME delivers the same exceptional performance as diesel fuel and generates no soot. The fuel offers many benefits, including that it can be made from multiple sustainable feedstocks, such as food waste, animal waste, grass clippings and natural gas. It offers the same performance and energy efficiency as diesel. DME does not require cryogenic temperatures or high tank pressures.

The Mack Pinnacle Axle Back model is equipped with a Mack MP®8 13 l engine and the Mack® mDRIVE™ automated manual transmission.

New York City recently announced a vision to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% in 2050 compared with 2005. In order to achieve this goal, the city must reduce 43 million t of GHG emissions. When produced from organic waste, DME can reduce GHG emissions.
