Funding awarded to explore power of LNG cold


Clean cold technology company Dearman has been awarded a Smart Grant by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to further explore the use of ‘waste cold’ from LNG terminals to provide sustainable power and cooling.

LNG is essentially energy packaged in cold – when re-gasified at import terminals, this cold ‘packaging’ is literally thrown away. In the UK, less than 20% is used in co-located processes.

It is possible, however, to capture the cold and recycle it to assist in the production of liquid air. The funding now awarded to Dearman will support studies in the UK, India, Singapore and Spain to do just that – focusing on the potential to recycle ‘wasted cold’ given off at LNG terminals, and to use it to make low-cost, low-carbon liquid air, which in turn can provide both cold and power.

Dearman technology harnesses liquid air to produce zero-emission power and cooling for use in a number of applications, including urban transport, the built environment and refrigerated transportation. Building on work done to date in India and other markets, Dearman will lead detailed, in-country studies into how capturing waste cold can support a clean ‘Cold Economy’, harnessing waste cold to replace the use of diesel.
