This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Dimethyl Ether (DME) production from synthesis gas through the one-step process. In this process, syngas is contacted with a bifunctional catalyst that supports its conversion to methanol and the subsequent dehydration of methanol to DME - making it possible to obtain DME from syngas in a single reaction step. The presence of water due to the dehydration reaction causes a side reaction that generates carbon dioxide and hydrogen. These side products must also be separated from the crude reaction product.
