Croydon-based clean tech company set to double size of research and development centre


<p data-fontsize="20" data-lineheight="22">Dearman, the clean cold technology company, has announced that it will double the size of its technology centre ahead of further trials of their ground-breaking engine powered by liquid nitrogen.</p>
The Dearman Engine is zero emission, emitting no nitrogen oxide (NOx) or particulate matter (PM), and delivering significant carbon dioxide savings compared to diesel.

The first application of the technology is a zero-emission alternative to diesel powered transport refrigeration units (TRUs). The Dearman transport refrigeration system is currently undergoing advanced road trials with Sainsbury’s, and further international trials are set to begin later this year.

The planned expansion, which will more than double the size of the Dearman Technology Centre, will allow the company to assemble an increasing number of engines and refrigeration systems to support this expanded trial programme. It will also enable the company to integrate its technology onto vehicles and conduct whole system testing on site.

The extended facility will also provide more space to house Dearman’s advanced technology programme, which is developing further applications of the Dearman Engine for use in transport, logistics and the built environment.

<div class="post-content">
<p data-fontsize="20" data-lineheight="22">In a House of Commons debate secured by Andrew Selous MP, Members of Parliament have encouraged ministers to take further action on diesel-powered transport refrigeration units.</p>
Mr Selous, MP for South West Bedfordshire, led Wednesday’s hour-long debate on ultra-low emission vehicles, and said it was a vital issue to help tackle climate change, create new industries, respond to the challenges of energy security, and help reduce the cost of driving.

He also called on ministers to tackle highly polluting and unregulated transport refrigeration units (TRUs).

The growing calls for tighter regulation of TRUs mean the industry needs to prepare. This leaves Dearman well-placed to deliver, with the company having developed a zero emission TRU which is currently undergoing advanced road trials.

Dearman’s novel piston engine uses the expansion of either liquid air or liquid nitrogen to provide zero-emission power and cooling. The only emission is air or nitrogen, with no emissions of nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide or particulate matter.

Conventional diesel transport refrigeration systems are lightly regulated and can emit up to 29 times as much particulate matter and six times as much NOx as a modern truck engine. Britain’s 84,000 TRUs becoming zero-emission would equate to taking 5.5 million Euro6 diesel cars off our roads.
