DME Qualifies for Alternative Fuel Vehicle Financial Incentives in First U.S. State

Volvo_DME_truck_6 (1280x860)Washington State Governor Jay Inslee has signed into law a transportation investment package providing financial incentives for the purchase of commercial vehicles using a “clean alternative fuel” and that specifies dimethyl ether as one of the alternative fuels that qualify for such benefits.

The legislation provides businesses with tax credits for the purchase or conversion of vehicles that are “principally powered” by a clean alternative fuel.  The bill includes dimethyl ether in the definition of “clean alternative fuel”, along with methane, natural gas, LNG, CNG, propane, hydrogen, and electricity.  More information is available from the International DME Association (IDA) here.
