The Dearman transport refrigeration system emits no PM or NOx, and delivers significant CO2 savings compared to diesel. In fact, says Dearman, moving to a zero-emission system could reduce a refrigerated truck’s overall PM emissions by up to 90% and its NOx emissions by 70%.
A full-sized Dearman engine will be showcased in the Cold Pavilion, on the stand of Dearman industry partner Hubbard Products.
Toby Peters, CEO of Dearman, says: “If we are going to deliver real change; if we are going to make a positive impact on air quality and reduce noise; then we cannot force companies into compromises. Clean systems must become the norm, rather than the exception, and for that to happen, they must deliver performance, compete on cost, and be zero emission.
“That is exactly what Dearman technology is engineered to do and Hubbard’s industry-leading know-how is helping to deliver the revolutionary technology of the future.”
Pat Maughan, MD of Hubbard Products, says his company deals in necessity, “not science fiction”.
He adds: “We know that new technology is the way forward, which is why we have formed a partnership with Dearman. We must strive to improve existing refrigeration technology to fill today’s needs, while delivering innovation that is both practical and applicable.” The Dearman system has undergone lab and on-vehicle trials, and is expected to be delivered to the world’s first commercial operator next month.
