Freezing pollution from freight on the cards

Zero emissions refrigeration systems on lorries could cut pollution from such trucks by more than 90%, claims new research.

Engine for air-powered truck drives on apace

Engineers say a new engine powered by liquid air could be ready to test by the summer. Dearman engineering firm claims it could replace typical diesel engines, saving truck operators thousands of pounds in fuel costs. Engineers will test the Dearman Engine’s zero-emission cooling and power on a refrigerated truck during 2014, before moving to […]
