Liquid Air Engine Nearer to Commercialisation

The Dearman Engine – a zero emission engine which runs on liquid air – took a step closer towards commercial realisation when Ricardo and a team of UK academics stated that the proposal could be completed within two years.

Along with validating the work to date, the engineering team from Ricardo is confident that, given its projected performance, there are numerous practical applications for the use of Dearman Engine in the future marketplace: “The technology could compete with hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric systems in zero emission applications.”

Dearman’s Liquid Air Engine Could Rival Battery Systems

A liquid air engine demonstrator is to be built within two years after an independent technical review of the concept found no insurmountable engineering obstacles that would prevent commercialisation.

The validation work, undertaken by engineers at Ricardo, appears to support the potential of the zero-emission engine as a competitor to hydrogen fuel cells and pure battery electric systems.
