What is the Environmental Impact of the Dearman-Hubbard Transport Refrigeration System?

2019-02-21T15:03:05+00:00January 8th, 2019|Dearman News|

Calculating emissions for Dearman TRUs We decided to calculate the maximum possible environmental impact of deploying the Dearman engine across its various potential uses, and compare it to diesel technologies used the same way. Carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq) is the common currency for comparing the global warming potential of [...]

Conclusion for Dearman’s Role in the Clean Energy Ecosystem of the Future

2019-02-21T15:16:02+00:00January 8th, 2019|Dearman News|

The technologies of the future will be those with the greatest potential to reduce polluting CO2eq emissions. Adding up the benefits of Dearman technology across TRUs, mobile pre-cooling, and bus air-conditioning, our environmental impact at maximum scale could reach around 0.9 gigatonnes or 1.01 gigatons of CO2eq savings per [...]
