DYNACERT INC.: PIT GROUP STATES "TEST RESULTS TO BE ENVIED"
DynaCERT Inc. has provided the following clarification on the recently released complete report on the PIT Group testing for fuel consumption and emissions tests of the HydraGEN technology.
DynaCERT is pleased with the results of this test. As was provided in the PIT report, the testing was conducted under outdoor laboratory conditions whereby the test vehicle was driven up to the optimal operating condition of 105 kilometres per hour (65 miles per hour) and, at that time, the cruise control was set and the test equipment activated. The driver then steered the vehicle around the test track at this constant speed and setting for 100 kilometres to complete the test. At that time, the test equipment and cruise control was turned off and vehicle returned to the start line. The testing was conducted with no change in elevations, no change in speed (up nor down), minimal wind conditions and optimal weather conditions as would be experienced in perfect on-the-road conditions. This is the standard fuel consumption testing protocol for all vehicles regardless of make, model or options.
PIT wrote to DynaCERT in an e-mail separate to the report: "... for any kind of automotive technology, 5.9 per cent fuel savings is a result to be envied."
As previously reported in the company's press release dated Nov. 20, 2017, PIT Group report states, "The results are showing significant decreases in emission levels between baseline and final measurements, of almost half for carbon monoxide (CO), total hydrocarbons (THC) and for mono-nitrogen oxides (NOx)." Testing verified that the HydraGEN HG1 unit reduced emissions of CO by 48.1 per cent, THC by 50.0 per cent and NOx by 46.1 per cent, all of which exceeded our estimates. This puts DynaCERT and the HydraGEN technology firmly into the hydrogen economy and provides companies worldwide the opportunity to benefit from the carbon credit economy with proven carbon emission reduction technology.
The subsequent phase two testing by the PIT Group on the test vehicles was conducted on Oct. 31, 2017, which by this date had the test vehicle travel double the previous distance. PIT then followed the industry standard test procedure based on TMC fuel consumption test procedure -- type 2, RP 1102A (TMC 2016) as was done in the phase one testing. Performance of the HydraGEN HG1 unit reduced fuel consumption by 5.9 per cent when run at a constant speed of 105 kilometres/hour for 100 kilometres on a flat track. Please see the DynaCERT website for a copy of the PIT Group report titled "Fuel Consumption and Emissions Tests of the HydraGEN Technology from DynaCERT."
Jim Payne, DynaCERT president and chief executive officer, states: "This is solid confirmation that our DynaCERT HydraGEN carbon emission reduction technology works. The achieved reduction in emissions exceeded all expectations and the confirmed 5.9-per-cent improvement in fuel savings above what is already considered the optimum performance of a modern Class 8 truck is, as stated by PIT, a result to be envied."
Additional benefits of HydraGEN technology
In the Nov. 20, 2017, press release, incorrect information was provided on the additional benefits of the HydraGEN technology. In quantifying such benefits to end users, the company has considered the fuel savings achieved by PIT at 5.9 per cent, a reduction in the cost of replacing and cleaning diesel particulate filters for Class 6 to 8 trucks at a cost up to $1,500 (U.S.), diesel emission fuel (DEF) savings at a cost of $2(U.S.)/gallon and oil changes at a cost of $200 (U.S.) per change. There are additional savings not calculated including, but not limited to, the reduced number of regeneration of trucks filtration systems and the reduced down time and maintenance associated with regenerations. The DPF needs to be cleaned regularly through a process called regeneration, either active, passive or forced regeneration. The accumulated soot is burnt off at high temperature (approximately 600 degrees C) to leave only a residue of ash, effectively renewing or regenerating the filter, ready to take on more pollution from the engine.
Future savings will also be realized from carbon credits and government environmental rebates once these are implemented. These additional benefits, combined with the company's new pricing and leasing strategy, show the payback period of the company's products to be under one year.
Historically shown in real on-road conditions, confirmed through tests performed at the Automotive Centre of Excellence, specific amounts of hydrogen and oxygen introduced to the air intake of a diesel engine resulted in increased torque and power to the drive train, showing additional benefits when the truck is under stress, pulling loads uphill, and against strong wind and adverse weather conditions along with the lessened amount of gear changes required, even greater fuel economy can be realized.
DynaCERT manufactures, distributes and installs carbon emission reduction technology for use with internal combustion engines. The company's patent-pending technology creates hydrogen and oxygen on-demand through electrolysis and supplies these additives through the air intake to enhance combustion, resulting in lower carbon emissions and greater fuel efficiency. DynaCERT technology is currently in use with on-road applications.
We seek Safe Harbor.
