dynaCERT secures its first Ontario trucking fleet order

Canada-headed dynaCERT Inc., a provider of carbon emission reduction technology for use with internal combustion engines, has recently announced that it has received a purchase order for ten (10) HG145 units of its "HydraGEN" technology from a Toronto area business, Newport Environmental Technologies Ltd (Newport), a member of Sparta Capital Ltd. Newport is a Canadian environmental company focusing on reducing waste and sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Available in a range of sizes HydraGEN is a portable, safe and reliable aftermarket electrolysis unit that produces hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) on demand and is designed for on-road applications with class 6-8 diesel engines. The H2 and O2 gas provided by the onboard HydraGEN system acts as a combustion enhancer, combusting the available diesel fuel more completely, faster, hotter and earlier in the power stroke. A patent-pending electrolysis system and Smart ECM provides reliable and adjustable delivery of H2 and O2 concentrations. The technology is scalable with a transition to applications with rail, marine, off-road and power generation (image courtesy dynaCERT).

According to a statement, Newport Environmental Technologies has agreed to purchase the HydraGEN technology systems to enhance combustion and track greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on its entire fleet of highway tractors that operate in the Greater Toronto area.

Developed by dynaCERT, the portable electrolysis technology disassociates distilled water into its two base molecules of hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2) gases, producing them on demand for injection into the combustion chamber of a diesel engine. The system was developed to reduce harmful emissions and provide significant savings on fuel.

All vehicles that are to be outfitted with dynaCERT’s HydraGEN technology are highway tractors, typically hauling 53-foot bulk trailers and travelling east-west across the North of Toronto via Hwy 401. On average, each vehicle travels about 700 km per day, translating into about 1.7 million km per annum for the entire fleet consuming some 750 000 litres of diesel fuel.

The units are expected to be installed over the next several weeks as Newport’s equipment comes in for service.

As a Canadian company rapidly growing internationally, I am very proud that dynaCERT has been able to obtain the first such noteworthy commitment from an Ontario trucking fleet operating locally. We look forward to working closely with Newport and Sparta and its extremely knowledgeable management. On behalf of the board of directors of dynaCERT, I sincerely thank John O’Bireck, a member of our advisory board, for his invaluable assistance in securing our important new client, said Jim Payne, President, and CEO of dynaCERT.

The order with Newport follows an OEM agreement, also announced in April 2019, with Total Equipment Services Inc (TES), an underground mining equipment manufacturer.

Synthetic fuels and GHG reduction

Sparta Capital Ltd (Sparta) is a company that owns or holds a controlling interest in a network of independent businesses that supply energy-saving technologies designed to reduce energy inefficiencies, achieve reduced emissions and increase operating efficiencies in various industries.

In December 2018, Sparta announced a joint venture (JV) with Pi ECO Canada Ltd to convert unsortable waste plastic into clean synthetic fuel, on an industrial scale. In addition, they are working with other Canadian technology to develop a decentralized model of converting small batches of single-use plastic into immediately useable fuels.

Our team is very familiar with the effects and benefits dynaCERT’s HydraGEN can provide; not only reducing emissions but enhancing fuel economy in the process. As part of Sparta’s overall strategy of looking to transform single-use plastics into useful alternative fuel mixtures and thus finding environmentally responsible places to deploy them, enhancing the combustion process with hydrogen becomes obvious. By combining the two complimentary fuels it is anticipated that we can drop our carbon footprint [for this fleet alone] by more than 700 tonnes/year. With HydraGEN’s inherent ability to measure, track and present resulting changes in GHG emissions, we look forward to presenting our results as they become available said John O’Bireck, President of Sparta Capital.
