Cool technology

This technology can provide a zero emission (at point of use) alternative to existing technologies in applications such as refrigerated trucks, due to its combined power and cooling abilities. Through this project Dearman is currently collaborating with a range of supermarkets, including Marks & Spencer, to real-world test this technology.
