Clean cold technology company, Dearman, has been shortlisted in two separate categories in the Business Green Leaders Awards 2016.
Firstly, its transport refrigeration system has been shortlisted in the ‘Innovation of the Year’ category, whilst the UK-based company’s CEO, Toby Peters, has also been shortlisted in the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ section.
Michael Ayres, Deputy Chief Executive of the London-based business, commented, “We look forward to the judging and wish the other shortlisted parties the best of luck.”
The Dearman transport refrigeration system is based on the Dearman engine, which is powered by rapidly expanding liquid nitrogen (N2) and delivers zero-emission power and cooling.
Typically, transport refrigeration units are powered by diesel and can emit up to 29 times as much pollution as a modern truck engine. Dearman’s system is zero-emission and eliminates nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate matter form its cooling process.
Ayres went on to say, “The potential for Dearman’s zero-emission transport refrigeration system to have a positive environmental impact is significant. Dearman technology can help operators to respond to [environmental] pressures without having to compromise on performance or face significantly increased costs.”
The system is currently undergoing certification ahead of its first commercial operation in the coming months, with an extended commercial demonstration programme commencing later this year.
The winners of the Business Green Leaders Awards will be announced on 6th July.
