Tony Dye, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technical Officer of Epicam Ltd will describe his revolutionary liquid air energy storage system.

Epicam Ltd ( is an advanced engine development company focused on bringing to market an engine providing post-carbon clean power. The EpiQair engine converts pressure energy released from liquid air to rotational shaft power. It enables stored cryogenic energy to power a range of local static and transport power solutions. Epicam’s technology can also produce liquid air using local renewable energy sources.

The EpiQair engine’s friction-free rotary displacement design is fully scalable. It is therefore capable of being configured for any applications currently available to all types and sizes of Internal Combustion Piston Engines. And, because it uses only liquid air as its ‘fuel’, it is completely clean in operation.

Epicam won a Shell Springboard Award in 2007 for its exhaust heat recovery technology, and the liquid air technology is a regional finalist in the 2016 competition. This is a unique opportunity to hear a preview of his presentation, and ask questions about the technology.

Date: Tuesday 9th February 2016

Time: Refreshments served from 18.30. Talk starts at 19.00. Ends by 21:00 following questions and discussion.

Venue: Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge University, Alan Reece Building, 17 Charles Babbage Road, Cambridge CB3 0FS (directions).

Parking: All car parks on the West site now have barriers. We have been asked to use Car Park 8 at the western end of Charles Babbage Road (on the same side of the road as the IfM, beyond the Materials Science and Metallurgy Building) see map.

Please do not park in Car Park 6 (beside the IfM) as although the barrier is sometimes up and you can enter, it is lowered again each evening and you will not be able to exit.

Booking not required. Free to attend. All welcome.
