Dearman’s cutting-edge clean cold and power technology has been featured in a book about disruptive innovation, called ‘We do things differently’ by Mark Stevenson. It charts the history of the Dearman Engine and considers its capacity to change the world.
Chapter five, which is available here, is called – Running on air. It explains how Peter Dearman invented an engine that runs on liquid air and suggests that it may one day be able to deliver sustainable refrigeration to the developing world, where nearly a third of all food produced is lost between harvest and distribution. It goes on to highlight that the technology has a range of applications, from transport refrigeration to back up cold and power for buildings. Combined these could have a truly global impact.
Mark Stevenson is the author of two books, the just released We Do Things Differently and the best-selling An Optimist’s Tour of the Future which has been translated into 10 languages and was described by the New Scientist as “a refreshing reminder that the future will always belong to the optimists”.
Mark appeared on episode 48 of Sunday Brunch where he spoke about Dearman Engine technology and the impact it could have. The episode can be found here and the segment starts at about 22 minutes into the episode.
