Founded in 2010, Oberon Fuels, Inc. (Oberon) is an innovative, CA-based company focused on challenging the status quo to enhance lives and energize the world. We implement this vision by developing innovative solutions to enable companies, industries, and countries to reduce their waste and carbon footprint while creating economic opportunity. Oberon’s current focus is converting waste streams, such as dairy manure and pulp mill waste, to low-carbon or carbon-negative fuels such as dimethyl ether (DME). In May 2021, Oberon began producing the first-ever renewable DME in the US and operates the only commercial renewable DME production facility globally.

DME is a powerful molecule that can be used to decarbonize transportation in three ways:

  1. As a blending agent with propane, which can significantly reduce the carbon intensity of this commonly-used, clean-burning fuel.
  2. As a cost-effective carrier for hydrogen, making it easy to deliver renewable hydrogen for the growing hydrogen, fuel cell, electric vehicle industry.
  3. As a cost-effective, zero-soot alternative to petroleum diesel.

We are changing the world, one molecule at a time…and looking for additional Team Members to help bring this vision to life. Our greatest advantage at Oberon is our human advantage. Join us on this journey!
