Targeting 'off-grid' energy solutions;
dynaCERT is leveraging its unique hydrogen production technology
by marrying it with inputs from renewable energies (e.g. solar)
to generate sustainable quantities of hydrogen to power fuel
cell power stations (this program is currently in R&D with costs
subsidized by grants).
dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V:
DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) is increasingly demonstrating
Tesla-like potential as it advances its proprietary HydraGenTM
H2/O2 technology on two fronts, both with potential to change the
world for the better, helping slow climate change, and handsomely
reward shareholders. Currently trading near $0.60 Canadian per share DYA.V presents
tremendous opportunity; analyst Jay Taylor of Hard Money Advisors
has reinitiated coverage with near-term (12-month) price target of
~$2.60 to $3.30/share. dynaCERT’s new HG-1 unit targeting the diesel
truck market was recently introduced to the market. The unit is an
on-demand electrolysis unit designed for internal combustion engines
which supplies the air intake with hydrogen and oxygen gases
separated and controlled via smart-ECU -- results show increased
fuel economy, increased torque, extending oil life, and reduction in
emissions. In April-2017 dynaCERT announced the launch of its HG-2
unit targeting the refrigeration container and light truck market,
and this May-2017 the Company announced the ability to essentially
daisy-chain HG-1 units to service the power generation market along
with a related contract.
>US$100 million sales for the first 12 months (following initial
ramp-up at its new production facilities) at 60% gross profit,
and new product/markets coming online -- CEO Interview
Recent interview with investment news portal
July 27, 2017:
Audio of interview with Analyst: Analyst Jay taylor of Hard Money Advisors
interviewed dynaCERT's CEO,
President, and Director, Jim Payne about the opportunity and
developments within the Company that will be of interest to
shareholders. The entire 15 minute May 2, 2017 interview may be
listened to at:
online (the dynaCERT interview begins just prior to the 10 minute
mark). In the interview the CEO states that the company is currently
producing HG-1 units at a rate of 50 per day and shipping them right
out. dynaCERT is targeting in >US$100 million sales for
for the first 12 months (following initial ramp-up at its new
production facilities) at 60% gross profit, and has new products and markets coming
online. The Company has not yet given targets for 2018, however we
do know the Company is targeting a near-term 6,000 HG-1 units per
month run rate -- NOTE: 6,000 HG-1 units per month sales would
generate ~US$40,000,000 in sales per month and DYA.V is targeting ~2/3
gross profit margins.
The CEO stated that right now dynaCERT is one of the fastest growing
companies in Ontario, if not Canada.
SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: Ignoring the fact
dynaCERT's HG-1 unit saves a client company
money via dramatically reduced fuel costs and
reduced maintenance from carbon fouling, the
corporate social responsibility a company
demonstrates by meaningfully reducing harmful
emissions is priceless from a PR standpoint.
Entities such as Loblaw have already began
initial purchases, however that is only the
beginning in this nascent market. Entities such
as Walmart (which would seem like a likely
candidate) has a goal of reducing Scope 1 and
Scope 2 emissions by up to 18 percent by 2025
and recently announced its 'Project Gigaton' to
remove a gigaton of carbon from its supply
transportation sector appears only at the
beginning of a massive adoption curve for this
new technology, feedback from initial installs
are universally positive, and we see this
translating into strong expansion across entire
fleets which have only to date been in
"pre"-sector-wide rollout mode -- metaphorically
the current situation (relative to the coming
move) is akin to a volcano building for
New Product -- HG-2 (refrigeration
container market): In the March 28,
2017 press release entitled "dynaCERT
Announces $2.7 Million in Sales, New Product Developments and
Results of 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders" the CEO stated the
Company was introducing a new HydraGenTM
unit the HG-2 (HG-1 would be for trucking market) targeting the
refer (refrigeration) units of transport trailers. This HG-2 market is
3.5 times larger than the trucking market and is expected to begin
commercialization in Q3-2017. Each refer unit has a 4
cylinder diesel engine inside them that runs 24/7 to produce the
refrigeration -- the market is huge. The unit conceivably can be
expanded to service class 6 & 7 trucks, buses and smaller trucks
commonly found outside of North America, such as in European
countries and in India.
When asked about the size of other (marine shipping, rail, and power
generation) markets relative to truck market, the CEO stated
that they are "10 times greater in dollar value. The
smaller/average-size power generation we are actually penetrating
that now. We will be announcing something very shortly concerning
that. With the shipping, and rail, it is something that will take a
little longer and we are not expected to take that to the market
until earlier next year. But when we penetrate with something like
that, a huge power generator – something like that is a half a
million dollar unit as opposed to something in the trucking market
which is short of $10,000 unit."

the 2017 TSX Venture 50® and ranked Number 1 across all sectors (see
related new release
The CEO was featured on BNN (Business News
Networks) regarding the Company's accomplishments, technology, and
Interview with dynaCERT Inc. CEO
Feb. 23, 2017
running time 7 min. 31 sec.
Recently on BNN dynaCERT's CEO,
President, and Director, Jim Payne described the Company's technology which is
driving the current success as follows; “What
we’ve got is a very unique computerized electrolysis system that
produces pure hydrogen and oxygen on demand and feeds it into the
combustion engine, by doing this it enhances the burn. Over the last
year we’ve had it validated by the University of Ontario Institute
of Technology, the Automotive Centre of Excellence; we proved up to
19.2% in fuel savings, 40% in reduction in greenhouse gases, and
north of 65% reduction in particulate matters."
The CEO stated the trucking has been the company’s initial focus,
and that the first shipments of its new generation Smart-ECU
HydraGen™ units had just been shipped. The Smart-ECU is
described in the interview as the 'brains' of the technology; “a
computerized system that actually interfaces with the computer of a
truck or an engine, and by doing this it alters the flows of our
gases so that we are constantly changing the flow to get that
In the interview the CEO confirmed the Company is expanding into
other markets, and is now moving into R&D for shipping, rail, and
large power generators, noting that “just
one container ship puts out the equivalent emissions of 50 million
cars per annum [click

seeing dynaCERT’s technology in a ship, the CEO stated “Our
goal is to be there by the end of this year”, and further
stated that the Company has been in talks with some of the largest
shipping companies in the world and has several clients that are
wanting to joint venture with dynaCERT regarding expansion into
The CEO reiterated that the Company’s focus right now is trucking,
and stated “some of the largest trucking
fleets in North America that are putting units on, there is strong
interest from around the globe for this product.“
The CEO also confirmed dynaCERT Inc. will make a move to the TSX big
board by [hopefully] the second quarter of this year, stated the Company is well
capitalized, its product for the trucking industry is self

With carbon tax plans being mandated in every Province of Canada,
and carbon credit pricing in the works by the Federal Government, dynaCERT is uniquely
positioned to excel at the opportunity, expected to be the first
able to provide immediate and affordable government sanctioned
solutions to business. Additionally, like Tesla, dynaCERT is
advancing development and testing of its technology with grants from the government
(translation: no shareholder dilution). dynaCERT's unique hydrogen
production technology is ubiquitous in nature and can be applied to
improving applications in numerous industries.
Results verify DYA.V
compellingly mitigates harmful climate change gases:
On November 15, 2016 the Company announced that
documented via an
accredited 3rd-party validation process the dramatic effectiveness
of its flagship carbon emission reduction and fuel-saving H2/O2
technology, see related news release entitled "dynaCERT
Inc. Reaches Major Milestone in Third Party Validation". The
news is significant and represents tremendous potential for investors as the solutions the Company provides are enormous and
global in scale.
Independent scientists from the Automotive Centre of Excellence (AEC)
at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, were
engaged by dynaCERT in cooperation with the government to verify what the Company has already
demonstrated on diesel engines in the field; a proven reduction of
toxic gasses within the emissions by 30% to 40% all while
improving fuel economy of ~10% to 15%. The lab was also tasked
with helping to establishing the carbon-credits that businesses
qualify for by purchasing and employing the technology.
In the third party testing AEC scientists
altered the flow of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O2 produced on demand)
via dynaCERT's HydraGen™ units and smart ECUs on two different Class
8 trucks and recorded extensive readings for various emissions and
fuel efficacy under a wide range of scenarios. The end result are
nothing short of stunning, and dynaCERT has solidified the respect
of engineers in the transportation sector; dynaCERT now has the
ability to alter the flows of H2O2 and control reductions in fuel
consumption as high as 19.2% and control emission reduction as high
as 40% of greenhouse gases (Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide,
Nitrogen Oxide) and greater than 65% reduction in particulate
matter. In short, the ability now to verifiably control outcomes
for end users of its product means that dynaCERT can look forward to
increasingly strong demand for its HydraGen™ product, plus it can
look forward to endorsement from government and industry advocates
(and critics!). The HydraGen™'s smart-ECU can be programmed
accordingly and record
the savings/reductions while in operation, and provide an audit
trail for establishing the carbon-credits that governments are
expected to approve businesses to qualify for by purchasing and
employing the technology.
On October 1, 2016
dynaCERT took possession of a new ~8,000 sq. ft.
lease expansion facility that is designed with a
monthly capacity of 2,000 units per eight hour shift for the
assembly of the HydraGen™ units. A ribbon cutting
at the new facility was held on October 5, 2016 and a special Member
of Parliament/dynaCERT reception was held on October
19th, 2016 where dynaCERT presented its carbon emission reduction
technology to MPPs, media, investment advisors and bankers.
dynaCERT on track to excel
and is attracting highly-accomplished talent to reflect this:
With production smart-ECU HG-1 units ramping up
at the new facility, the introduction of the new HG-2 unit recently
coming into production, DYA.V is poised to trade significantly higher before the year is out.
Sample of recent noteworthy additions:
July 28, 2018 appointment of Marc Bertrand, Former President & CEO
of MEGA Brands, to the Advisory Board. He stated "dynaCERT
has an exciting new technology that has proven results for fuel
efficiency and, with the significant reductions in greenhouse gases,
will be a leader in the new carbon economy.”
June 8, 2017 appointment of former President of Cummins Diesel
Canada, Michael Christodoulou, as Business/Marketing Advisor for
dynaCERT Inc.; Mr. Christodoulou also purchased a $1M equity
position in DYA.V. Mr. Christodoulou has over 30 years of
extensive experience and vast knowledge working with major North
American trucking companies. He held the position of President and
Principal of Cummins Eastern Canada LP for 15 years, Executive
Director of PACCAR Business, Cummins Inc. and was President of
Cummins Diesel of Canada for over seven years. Mr. Christodoulou has
a superior track record within the trucking industry and has
developed excellent industry affiliations with global transportation
companies and all the major truck OEM’s. Mr. Christodoulou was
formerly on the Global Distributor Advisory Council for Cummins
Power Generation, was the Chairman of the Canadian Association of
Equipment Distributors, and the VP and Board Member of the
Associated Equipment Dealers. He is a Member of the Canadian
Trucking Alliance, and has been a member of the Ontario, Quebec and
the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Associations. Mr. Christodoulou is a
former member of Cummins Distribution Council and was the Co-Chair
of Cummins Bus Council.
Also important to note is the
August 29, 2016 addition of Mr. David Bridge as Chief Operating
Officer to dynaCERT's ranks, this appointment demonstrates the
exceptional level of talent willing to associate itself with
dynaCERT at the cusp of inflection, such caliber usually only
associates itself with high-growth success stories -- here is an
excerpt of his CV "Mr. Bridge has an extensive background in
managing technology operations and multi-million dollar corporate
ventures. He is an accomplished leader with extensive knowledge of
restructuring and streamlining IT to increase efficiency and reduce
cost. Mr. Bridge has held several senior IT positions with major
firms for the past 25 years as well as successfully led teams at
AMD, RBC Financials, Virgin Mobile and Blackberry. As the senior IT
leader, he helped Virgin Mobile in Canada expand from a start-up to
a key competitor in the Telecommunications sector. In his most
recent position at Blackberry as a Director of Infrastructure,
Architecture and Engineering, he led a high performance team that
designed and supported large scale enterprise wide systems."
-- dynaCERT has seen an impressive boost in strength of late at all
levels of its operation from the management team, technical team, to
board of directors, and manufacturing staff too.
Noted above is just two of several impressive
additions to the Company's management and sales teams.

National Carbon Pricing is Coming to Canada
and USA -- dynaCERT at Forefront of
New Trillion Dollar Market:
On October 3, 2016 the Prime Minister of
Canada, Justin Trudeau said a minimum price of $10 per tonne of
carbon dioxide equivalent would be set in 2018, rising to $50 a
tonne by 2022. Provinces will have to meet or exceed that floor
price, either through a direct price on carbon or a cap-and-trade
system. The Canadian federal government is in the process of
developing a comprehensive emissions reduction plan. Similarly in
the USA, a task force was launched last year by former New York City
mayor Michael Bloomberg and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney to
create voluntary financial risk disclosure guidelines for investors
as more companies transition to a low carbon economy. In a speech to
Toronto’s financial community this Summer=2016 at the Toronto Board
of Trade, Mark Carney, said given the enormous funding needs for
clean infrastructure – he estimated at
“somewhere between $5 trillion and $7
trillion a year” – investment opportunities will
abound. Carney stated it will be up to capital markets on whether
they recognize that opportunity and get involved; “If we get
carbon disclosure right, the relative value opportunity in equities
is considerable.” He further stated
“(Carbon pricing) is the cleanest way for markets to judge the
tangible exposure to climate change”.
Initiatives and mandates are coming into place
in numerous countries that will directly benefit dynaCERT near-term;
e.g. see related article at New York Times on EPA mandates entitled

Targeting of the Carbon Economy
Over the last few
years DYA.V has worked with some of the largest trucking fleets in
the world under the understanding that with 3rd-party validation of
minimum 8% fuel savings they will commence outfitting their fleet
with dynaCERT's 'HydraGenTM' units. There has been no
disagreement that DYA.V's technology accomplished 8%+ fuel-savings,
the issue since has been obtaining the hard data to give to
engineers of its clientele; it has been a time consuming and
expensive process -- the recent involvement of the provincial and
federal government in providing carbon credit and efficacy takes
dynaCERT to an heightened level of potential. All of the data is
objectively computer generated, pulled right from the trucks and
sent to an accredited 3rd-party source.
DYA.V has solutions to big political real-world pollution
issues including carbon emission reduction and significant fuel
savings. The Company has the potential to become a major player
in the trucking, marine, rail, automotive, and power generation
industries. The share price of DYA.V is poised for significant
upside revaluation to reflect the success of its proprietary
technology and the apparent demand for the problems it solves.
DynaCERT Releases New State-of-the-Art ECU
Able to Track Carbon Credits:
August 29, 2016 release:
The dynaCERT team of
engineers and scientists, under the
supervision of Mr. Bridge, has worked
closely with RMF Design and Manufacturing
along with diesel and electronic technical
experts to finalize the electronic
interface, design and development of the
state-of-the-art "Smart" ECU (Electronic
Control Unit). This "Smart" ECU is the brain
of the HydraGen™ unit. Its capabilities are
similar to those of a smart phone wherein it
can listen to the onboard engine computer
and respond accordingly.
The "Smart" ECU has shown significant
advantages and improvements over the initial
version of the ECU as to the reading,
collecting, transmitting and storing of data
pertaining to fuel efficacy and emissions
reductions. The "Smart" ECU communicates
with the engines onboard computer, learning
and altering the flow of gases produced and
introduced to enhance combustion. It also
has GPRS capability for remote access by
both the company and end users, allowing for
tracking and monitoring of Carbon Credits.
Mr. Bridge, COO, comments, "I am excited
about joining dynaCERT and the launch of
this new product and as we continue to
The initial version of the ECU has been
phased out; however, the Company continued
to work with several trucking firms in
Ontario that have the HydraGen™ units with
the initial version of the ECU installed on
their 2012-2016 transport trucks. The
initial ECU had been modified for manual
collection of data which was very
instrumental in the development of
algorithms for the "Smart" ECU. The
transport trucks outfitted with these
HydraGen™ units form part of the initial
purchase order announced in 2015 and will be
upgraded with the new "Smart" ECU when

million shares outstanding, at its
current trading price the market cap is minuscule compared to its
potential. As the reality of the accomplishments and potential are
understood by the marketplace, we expect shares of DYA.V to rise
several multiples higher than its current price.
Analyst Jay Taylor of Hard

near-term to reflect the
high-growth scenario the CEO states is underway:
If the Company puts out 10,000 units,
its sales at that point are ~US$67,500,000 and the Company is working on 60%
gross margin profit. However such a number is
minuscule to what appears to be shaping up, and would represent
output form just part of one shift over one year -- in a recent
interview Mr. Payne stated things are are
looking much bigger; "I do believe this is
going to outgrow our capacity or our desire to do the manufacturing
-- we are already in talks with some of the largest auto part
manufacturers in North America that have a very strong appetite for
manufacturing for us."

For the last few years DYA.V engineers
(former NASA rocket scientist and engineers experienced in combustion
efficiency) have refined development of the technology while testing with
selected prospective commercial end-users, and the results and reviews
have been stellar. DYA.V had over 200 Pepsi trucks equipped and
demonstrated an average of 14.8% fuel savings, several of the units
are still in service today (May-2016). DYA.V has expressions
of interest from numerous entities expected to translate to sizeable
purchase orders. dynaCERT's technology is scalable; the Company is
tackling the trucking industry first with its new 3 L/minute
Hydrogen units, and is also working on validation of its up to 300
L/minute Hydrogen units for marine, rail, and power generation
industries. The math on sales potential is staggering; example: to outfit just one container ship could
easily generate close to $1 million in sales and there are >90,000
commercial cargo ships operating world-wide, let alone the
tens-of-millions of trucks worldwide.
Uniqueness of DYA.V's
H2/O2 HydraGenTM technology
DYA.V's technology is unique in the
marketplace, it's units are essentially computerized on-demand
electrolysis systems that supply the air intake of internal combustion engines with
timed releases of hydrogen and oxygen gases. Results show
increased fuel economy, increased torque, extended engine oil life
and a reduction in emissions. Introducing hydrogen (in the correct
proportion and at the right timing) into the air
intake of a diesel engine creates a cleaner, more efficient burn,
however unlike cruder and problematic 'brown gas', DYA.V's 'HydraGenTM'
units produce pure oxygen and pure hydrogen and releases these
elements individually in a controlled and timed fashion, it
interfaces with the onboard computer of the engine. dynaCERT stands able to meet the demand that has been thirsting for what it can
deliver; DYA.V has proprietary (patent pending) technology with an
unparallel level of sophistication, hard data validating its
effectiveness, proven reliability, plus it has the ability to
produce, support, and deliver at a high standard expected by its
In-cab tablet control unit &
HydraGen(TM) unit (Illustrative purposes - not to relative
1) HG-1 Unit; targeting commercial diesel truck
market & buses (3 L/min. Hydrogen unit for class 6 - 8 engines) - DYA.V has designed a HydraGenTM unit for transport trucks
capable of delivering 3 Liters/minute Hydrogen. DYA.V now has some trucks
in the field returning with in excess of 17.5% improved fuel economy
while at the same time reducing the toxic gasses within the
emissions by 30% - 40%. In the case of Fortune 500 giant, Pepsi
Beverage Company, DYA.V's HydraGenTM unit delivered
a ~10% to 15% reduction in diesel fuel costs. The unit is fully computerized and
communicated directly with the onboard computer of the truck so that
it can alter the fuel mapping of the truck as it enhances the burn.
It has a 7-inch tablet-like monitor in-cab that provides status
information and distilled water level (the raw ingredient for making
the hydrogen) indicator, built-in GPS, built-in
cellular communication, and other abilities so that DYA.V or the
fleet maintenance team can log into it from anywhere in the world
to monitor and possibly even tweak some performance aspects. DYA.V retails a unit for
(installed ~$10,000) and with most trucks the
payback on investment from fuel-savings alone is easily within a
year, even at lower gas prices today. An even bigger savings comes
from the fact that one of the biggest expenses for some (especially
buses; see related Sept 17, 2015 article "Emissions problem on new buses ground Winnipeg Transit to a halt") is the down-time because of carbon fouling, something that
is dramatically lessened with the cleaner (more-complete) burn
attained with H2/O2 technology. With 3rd-party accredited validation
now at a point engineers for fleets can officially act on the data,
operator would be remiss in not proceeding with purchasing DYA.V
technology, plus the corporate social responsibility a company
demonstrates by meaningfully reducing harmful emissions is priceless
from a PR standpoint.
Analysis of truck unit margins and
potential: DYA.V wholesales its
truck units to distributors for ~US$6,750. There exists potential for
demand to grow exponentially, and sales potential is enormous with
millions of trucks (potential clients) worldwide. The
first 10,000 units sold could represent $43 million gross profit
(assuming ~2/3 margins) to DYA.V from these truck units alone and
that would just be scratching the surface of expected growth. To date, while
testing, DYA.V has partnered with different companies globally, many
with large fleets (or tight relationships with large fleets), some
over 10,000 each. DYA.V is initially focusing sales on large fleets
which have built-in fleet maintenance teams that can be trained for
installation. DYA.V will also benefit from proactive replacement of
units (or refurbishment of select components) after several years of
Image of a 2013 2.0L Turbo Diesel
VW Passat. Other brands affected by the Volkswagen
so-called "defeat devices" include Audi, Porsche, and
Skoda which are all part of the Volkswagen empire. Other
such as BMW, Toyota, Ford, Chrysler, Ferrari, and GM
appear to not have been affected.
However, all diesel manufacturers can integrate dynaCERT technology for a cleaner burn
and fuel savings.
2) HG-2 Unit, targeting
refer trailers & light truck market - dynaCERT HG-2 unit is
set to hit commercialization for Q3-2017 targeting initially
refrigerated trailers. The HG-2 unit is ~ 1/2 the size of a HG-1
unit. The HG-2 unit conceivably can be expanded to service class 6 &
7 trucks, buses and smaller trucks commonly found outside of North
America, such as in European countries and in India.
ASIDE: This December 3, 2015 dynaCERT announced it has developed a compact version of the
HydraGen™ unit for use on diesel-powered cars and light trucks. This
compact unit (smaller than a cereal box) is based on the patent
pending HydraGen™ technology and the development effort is a direct
result of the pressing need by the automotive industry for a
permanent, at-the-source, solution to reduce carbon emissions in
diesel engines while improving fuel consumption. Typical emission
control solutions treat engine exhaust gases after the burn, at the
expense of loss of power and increased fuel consumption; dynaCERT’s
‘HydraGen’ improves combustion resulting in a cleaner burn that
produces increased torque, improved fuel savings, fewer oil changes,
less carbon build-up in the engine and significantly reduced toxic
emissions. The first of the new compact units is being installed on
a 2.0 liter turbo diesel Volkswagen Passat (2013 model year) import
sedan for testing. This test is being performed within the
dynaCERT's own facility after which the Company plans to submit the
data to an outside third party for validation. This testing is done
independent of any automobile manufacturer and financed wholly thru
internal R&D budgets. Depending on the results obtained, further
long-term, large-scale testing will require participation from one
or more diesel engine manufacturer and automobile manufacturer.
Units this size power islands and
larger shipping vessels. DYA.V is working to secure its
technology as the solution to save fuel and reduce
3) Targeting power generation
(6,000hp - 30,000hp engines - widely used in remote locations),
rail, and marine market (up to 300 L/min. Hydrogen unit) - DYA.V has designed a HydraGenTM
unit for large stationary power generation combustion engines that require Hydrogen
at a high rate up to 300 L/minute, this HydraGenTM
unit retails up to ~US$500,000. These massive power generators
(used by utilities, ships, and rail) burn so much fuel that their return on
investment, at a half-million dollars investment, is eight months at
~5% fuel savings. DYA.V has pilot tested the HydraGen technology on a Wartsila
9R32 stationary power generator in the Caribbean for a
subsidiary of InterEnergy and it has met and exceeded their
expectations from phase-1 testing (it showed up to a 9% fuel savings
just on a preliminary test). The same Watsila engines are used on
transport shipping vessels, a whole other segment for DYA.V.
In the August 25, 2016 corporate update the
Company commented on the old R&D/production facilities being
converted to facilitate this next-gen market effective October 1,
2016; "The existing manufacturing area will be converted to
Research and Development and production of the next generation
HydraGen™ units which will be designed for shipping, rail and large
stationary power generation products. The Company has a planned
program to work with Government and Port support as well as specific
consortium members to drive these initiatives."

On a newer second front, dynaCERT is targeting 'off-grid' energy solutions
dynaCERT is positioning itself to become a world leader in research
and development of hydrogen based technology solutions and is
achieving this through non-dilutive government funding. Falling
costs in solar, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, and fuel cells
are at a point in time whereby the confluence of all three
technologies into an affordable, viable, coordinated fashion is a
technology whose time is here to ‘cut-the-cord’ for potentially
millions of homes in the future and offer standalone solutions.
Grid-Parity is a term that means it costs the same (or less)
for an alternative energy source (e.g. solar) to generate
electricity than to purchase power from the traditional power grid
in a given location.
A report from market analysis firm GTM Research states that, thanks
to falling costs and increased efficiencies, rooftop solar on its
own has reached grid parity in 20 U.S. states, and 42 states should
reach that milestone by 2020 under ‘business-as-usual’ conditions.
Currently, solar energy accounts for less than 1% of global
electricity production. But by 2050, some experts think it will
account for 40%. Similarly, equivalent technological improvements
and economies of scale are associated with rechargeable lithium-ion
batteries and fuel cells. Fuel cell technology is now at a point
where in the near future, fuel cells are expected to increasingly
replace conventional furnaces and electrical power utility reliance,
providing homes and offices with heat and electricity, free from the
disruptions associated with the utility's electric grid. Each
technology on its own has limitations, however dynaCERT is
developing a combined coordinated smart system.
'Off-Grid' Power Solutions Project
The following diagram shows an example of how
technology fits into the off-grid/cut-the-cord power
system it is developing to provide renewable energy to the housing
industry (also applicable to office spaces and industrial
Figure 1. (above) dynaCERT
'off-grid' power solution diagram with close-up view of
how a fuel cell functions. Solar panels and/or the
hydrogen fuel cell will power the building by day using
an energy optimization software. At night, the
rechargeable batteries would then take over and activate
the Hydragen™ unit which will keep the hydrogen fuel
cell operating by providing the required hydrogen gas.
The solar panels would also maintain the rechargeable
batteries at full capacity until they are needed at
night and the cycle repeats itself. Further, the pure
oxygen which is also produced by the Hydragen™ unit
would be used to improve the air quality in the
Fuel cells generate power
by reacting hydrogen and oxygen in the presence of an
electrolyte, a non-metallic conductor in which
electrical flow is carried by the movement of ions, such
as proton-exchange membrane cells. They function as
Hydrogen gas (produced by
is delivered to a negatively charged anode on one
side of the cell while oxygen is channeled to a
positively charged cathode on the other side.
At the anode, a catalyst (often
involving platinum) knocks the hydrogen atoms’ electrons off,
leaving positively charged hydrogen ions and free
A membrane placed between the
anode and cathode only allows the ions to pass
through, and the electrons must travel along an
external circuit – generating an electric current.
At the cathode, the electrons
and the hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to make
water, which then flows out of the cell.
Cut-the-Cord Power Solutions -- an Industry that is Ripe
for Rampant Growth and whose Time has Come
For the last couple decades players
in fuel cell power generation sector have been involved
in ongoing R&D focused on reducing cost and improving
durability with the goal of eventually leading to mass commercialization/acceptance. Only a few years ago the industry
experienced hydrogen fuel cell costs around $1,000 for
every kilowatt of power they generated, now that cost is
nearer $50 and expected to drop significantly further
with technology in the pipeline (e.g. platinum-nickel
alloys as catalysts (Lawrence Berkley Laboratories), and
platinum with carbon silk (Ballard Power)). Fuel cell
technology is now at a point where in the near future, fuel cells are
expected to increasingly replace conventional furnaces
and electrical power utility reliance, providing homes and offices
with heat and electricity, free from the disruptions
associated with the utility's electric grid.
Technological improvements and economies of scale
associated with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and
renewable energies (such as solar) have led to
lower costs/increased affordability for those
technologies too, and
this trend is projected to increase also. In-short, the
cut-the-cord type system that dynaCERT is advancing
which entails a confluence of solar, rechargeable batteries,
hydrogen fuel production, and fuel cells in an
affordable, viable, coordinated fashion is a technology
whose time is here.
DYA.V has the Product, Wherewithal, and the People to be a
Leader in the Cut-the-Cord Power Generation Sector
Central to the off-grid power
system is dynaCERT's HydragenTM: dynaCERT is uniquely positioned
with an established, proven, and reliable product
capable of generating pure hydrogen and
oxygen individually in a timed fashion; its 3 L/minute Hydrogen unit
currently in service (in the trucking industry) is able
to generate voluminous amounts of pure hydrogen, and the
technology is scalable, able to generate amounts for
multiple larger scenarios. The Company's up-to-300
L/minute Hydrogen unit, such as the one it used on a Wartsila engine at a utility in the Caribbean, is
testimony to the Company's ability to consistently,
reliably, and safely deliver pure hydrogen on demand.
Capitalized for success: The
Company has stated it is the beneficiary of the push to see
Canada reduce its carbon footprint; dynaCERT's
May-2016 new release stated "It
is an opportune time for dynaCERT to capitalize on this
commitment to reduce carbon emissions and to access the
Canadian and Ontario government grants and loans. As
such, dynaCERT is positioning itself to become a world
leader in research and development of hydrogen based
technology solutions and receive available non-dilutive
dynaCERT's off-grid power
generation project is spearheaded by highly-skilled and
accomplished individuals: Dr. Richard Lü, an
independent director at dynaCERT, has more than 20 years
of global experience in the energy industry. Dr. Lü has
been involved in managing public listed companies in the
area of silicon production, solar cell manufacturing and
solar panel production. He has led many initiatives in
energy conservation, demand response, distributed energy
and other sustainable developments. Dr. Lü heads a major
solar power company developing and operating solar PV
projects in Canada and the USA. Dr. Lü is working
alongside Dr. Richard Bower, a physicist and solar

dynaCERT's HG-1 and
HG-2 market effectively
has no competition, the closest competitor is still using antiquated
'brown gas' technology that DYA.V progressed away from over 6 years
ago toward something the engineering community in the industries
targeted could rally around. With win-win supply/demand metrics in
play now, along with the proprietary nature of its technology, plus
the barriers to entry high from a validated hard-data and
reputational standpoint, DYA.V appears poised to handsomely reward
shareholders establishing a long position now.

Overview of dynaCERT Inc.'s Technology
DynaCERT is a growing energy sector
company that specializes in delivering Carbon Emission Reduction
Technologies to a global marketplace. DYA.V is able to provide to
market a reliable and effective electrolysis unit that generates
hydrogen and oxygen on demand to: (A) address the growing
requirements to reduce emissions; and (B) provide an increase in
DYA.V's current technology
with its patent-pending delivery method is centered
around providing hydrogen-oxygen mixture (H2/O2),
generated on demand through electrolysis, for combustion
The benefits of this additive have been investigated by
several researchers. Here are a few of the established
findings by the scientific community;
The flame speed of
hydrogen is nine times faster than the flame speed
of diesel, burning diesel in the presence of
hydrogen will result in overall faster and more
complete combustion. This will result in higher peak
pressure closer to the Top dead centre (TDC) and
therefore, will produce a higher effective pressure
to do work.
Even a small amount of
H2/O2 injected into the air intake to enhance diesel
combustion decreases the brake specific fuel
consumption (bsfc) regardless of the level of load.
The induction of H2/O2
contains oxygen; as a result, the increase in the
air-fuel ratio improves the combustion resulting in
lower fuel consumption and better efficiency.
Hydrocarbons and CO2
are reduced, due to the absence of carbon in
hydrogen fuel and also due to better combustion of
diesel fuel with the aid of hydrogen which has a
higher flame speed.
Although CO values for
neat diesel operation is relatively lower, by
inducting H2/O2 into diesel the CO amount is further
dynaCERT created partnerships to
perfect a technology that would deliver on the promising findings
with H2/O2 injection. Not only has it developed patent-pending
technology, it has completed testing and have validated that their
Here are some of the
features delivered through DYA.V's technology;
electrolysis system and ECM provides a reliable and
adjustable delivery of H2/O2 concentrations. Not all
engines are the same and having the optimal ratios
and percentages provides increased benefits.
DYA.V technology is
scalable allowing use with Class 6-8 on-road
vehicles and transition to applications with rail,
marine, off-road and power generation.
DYA.V technology is
leading edge and provides solutions without drawing
excessive power to perform the task.

DYA.V's technology is so clean, it
has been granted an exemption by the California Air Research Board.
DYA.V's HydraGen™ has been
designed so that they can
be put to work right away. Before DYA.V launched
HydraGen™, it spent thousands of hours on the design working with
our engineers, customers, and conducting field tests to create the
ideal product that would meet with its customer’s current and future
expectations. Not only did the product need to be reliable, it
needed to provide solutions for emission reduction, fuel savings and
be manufactured so that customers could achieve a return on
Created for use in diesel engines ranging from Class 6 to 8,
HydraGen™ is a quality product that improves engine performance.
Through DYA.V's patent-pending electrolysis system, it is able to
provide pure hydrogen and oxygen gases through the air intake,
creating a more powerful combustion which provides:
designed HydraGen™ to be scalable, as well; it has the ability to
test various concentrations of hydrogen and oxygen mixtures to
create the perfect formula for specific engine types, and then
calibrate it to maximize all the benefits.
The Pepsi field-test program
DYA.V has already installed over 200
hydrogen generating units with Pepsi Beverage Company. Specifically
on the Detroit Diesel Series 60, 12.7L engines.
In the Pepsi program dynaCERT Inc. installed 187 HydraGen™ units. To
date they have driven over 18 million miles with 95% uptime, and
have documented fuel savings of over 15%.
The bottom line: 4,200 hundred gallons
of fuel saved per year per truck, on average. This represents >$3
million in fuel costs alone.
Table 1. (Above) -- This is a
selection of the Pepsi trucks whose mileage was documented and
benchmarked to the industry average. DYA.V technology showed a clear
10-20% increase in fuel efficiency.
At those rates, and with its prices, DYA.V can provide the typical
truck owner with a less-than-one-year payback period on one of its
retrofitted units. Long-haul trucks that operate continuously will
use upwards of (20 or 30 thousand) gallons of fuel per year and
could potentially experience a payback on investment (based on an
installed cost near US$10,000) within as little as 4 months.

HydraGen™ is a portable, safe and
reliable aftermarket unit that produces hydrogen and oxygen on
demand and is designed for on-road applications with Class 6-8
HydraGen™ is designed to provide increased fuel economy, increased
torque, lower emissions and extend engine oil life.
HydraGen™ uses distilled water as its
source of these gases and comes with a large reservoir which is
contained in the cab of the tractor.
With an automatic on-demand solenoid,
our unit tops up its own tanks as water is used for the production
The rest of the HydraGen™ system is
housed in a strong, light weight cabinet mounted to
the outside of the vehicle and is designed for all weather

electronic control unit
DYA.V has been working on a new
HydraGen(TM) Electronic Control Unit (H-ECU) for numerous months taking
into account feedback from its customers as to what they would like
in a new unit.
The new units consist of a DYA.V patent pending H-ECU housed inside
the HydraGen(TM) unit and a 7” Tablet control unit.
The new H-ECU is completely controlled with the in truck tablet
eliminating the outside indicator light and switch.
The H-ECU and the Tablet communicates using a USB connection.
DYA.V chose a rugged, waterproof, dustproof and drop resistant 7”
tablet with IP66 certification and MIL-STD-801G.
The Tablet is supplied complete with Wi-Fi, GPS and phone
The new software updates include the
following in respect to the operation and monitoring of the HydraGen
• Home screen that powers the unit on.
• Distilled water levels with a reminder when the water supply is running
low and needs filling.
• Power Indicator.
• Ambient Temperature that will turn on a circulating fan at set
• Reactor core temperatures.
• Electrolyte levels.
• DC volts and amps used by the unit.
• Oxygen and Hydrogen Level sensors within the unit.
• Automatic fill capabilities sent to the pump operated reservoir.
• Automatic shut down and warning if the reactor should have a leak.

Caribbean Pilot Project
Many islands in the Caribbean (as well
as remote cities and villages in Alaska and many other communities
around the world) rely almost entirely on diesel power generation
for their energy needs. A full 72% of installed generating capacity
in the Caribbean is diesel-engine based – also the most expensive
source of fuel.
DYA.V applying its proven technology
to fossil fuel powered generators in the Caribbean has the potential to
unlock massive savings.
dynaCERT announced that it has
concluded Phase-1 testing of the pilot project of the HydraGen(TM)
technology with a stationary power generator in the Caribbean. Phase-1 objective was testing and data collection that measures the
performance characteristics of a 9R32 Wartsila generator with the
induction of hydrogen and oxygen at varying concentrations, compared
to baseline performance.

Understanding the need to reduce emissions
Reducing the amount of greenhouse gasses provides benefits to the
environment, to communities and businesses and to DYA.V
One of the primary determinants of
carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from mobile sources is the amount of
carbon in the fuel.
The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR 600.113) provides
values for carbon content per gallon of gasoline and diesel fuel
which Environmental Protection Agency uses in calculating the fuel
economy of vehicles: Diesel carbon content per gallon is 2,708
Black carbon is a climate
forcing agent formed through the incomplete combustion of fossil
fuels, biofuel, and biomass, and is emitted in both anthropogenic
and naturally occurring soot. It consists of pure carbon in several
linked forms. Black carbon warms the Earth by absorbing heat in the
atmosphere and by reducing albedo (the ability to reflect sunlight),
when deposited on snow and ice.
The majority of black carbon emissions are from developing countries
and this trend is expected to increase. The largest sources of black
carbon are Asia, Latin America, and Africa. China and India together
account for 25-35% of global black carbon emissions.
Recent studies and public testimony by many of the scientists cited
in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report estimate
that; emissions from black carbon are the second largest contributor
to global warming after carbon dioxide emissions, and that reducing
these emissions may be the fastest strategy for slowing climate
The European Union and United States might further reduce their
black carbon emissions by accelerating implementation of black
carbon regulations that currently take effect in 2015 or 2020 and by
supporting the adoption of pending International Maritime
Organization regulations. Existing regulations also could be
expanded to increase the use of clean diesel and clean coal
technologies and to develop second-generation technologies.
Urbanization is the movement of people from rural to urban
locations. Ivanhoe’s Robert Friedland says urbanization is "one of the
greatest social and economic transformations in human history." 100
years ago, just 20% of the world's population lived in cities. In
1990, that number grew to 40%. Today, the World Health Organization
(WHO) says the majority (roughly 54%) of the world's population
lives in cities. And this number is growing. By 2050, UNICEF
estimates 70% of people will be living in cities. China and India
alone will have about a billion people living in cities. But packing
more people into smaller spaces has some negative effects. One of
the biggest includes pollution, which is largely due to vehicle
emissions. China's air quality is already terrible from the
coal-fired plants that produce the country's electricity. But adding
millions upon millions of cars (there are more than 120 million
passenger cars clogging the roads in China) has made it worse. Major
cities, like Beijing, are often shrouded in smog. But it's not just
China that faces pollution problems. The WHO says air pollution is
the world's largest environmental health risk. In 2012, it killed
one out of every eight people. dynaCERT is part of the world wide
solution with its green technology.
