Dearman shortlisted in Low Carbon Champions Awards

Dearman’s zero-emission transport refrigeration system has been shortlisted  in the 2015 Awards for Low Carbon Innovation.

The system is based on the Dearman engine, which is powered by the rapid expansion of liquid nitrogen to deliver zero-emission power and cooling.

Toby Peters, CEO, Dearman said: “Making the shortlist in the highly-regarded LowCVP Awards is a great achievement, and speaks to the hard work of everyone in the company. The potential for Dearman’s zero-emission transport refrigeration system to have a positive environmental impact is significant, and we are making rapid progress in bringing it to market. We look forward the judging, and wish all the nominees the best in the process.”

Typically, transport refrigeration units are powered by diesel. These small auxiliary engines are unregulated and disproportionately polluting, emitting up to 29 time as much pollution as a modern truck engine. Dearman’s refrigeration system is zero-emission at the point of use, eliminating emissions of NOx and particulate matter from the cooling process.

In addition to delivering significant environmental benefit, the system will offer better economic and operational performance than incumbent diesel technologies.

Dearman’s zero-emission refrigeration system is currently undergoing extended onvehicle testing at MIRA. Later this year, the system will be in commercial on-road trials, with international commercial trials due to commence in 2016.
