The Institute of Refrigeration is hosting a London TechTalk on sustainable refrigeration road transport and reducing the environmental impact of the cold chain on 7 March.
Dr Christina Francis from London South Bank University won the IOR’s Ted Perry award last year for her research into carbon emissions from Direct-Drive Last mile Refrigerated Vehicles and will talk about the research project and its impact for the future of the refrigerated road transport system in London.
Dearman is working with Marks & Spencer as the retailer seeks to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from its chilled deliveries.
Dearman’s liquid nitrogen-powered engine is zero emission. The technology will replace diesel-powered secondary engines used to power transport refrigeration units (TRUs), which are used to keep food cold on the road.
