dynaCERT Inc. (TSXV:DYA; OTC:DYFSF) (FRA: DMJ) (“dynaCERT” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update following its participation exhibiting our HydraGEN™ system and performance which was recently tested by TUV in Germany at the 67th IAA Commercial Vehicles Trade Show, under the slogan “Driving tomorrow”. The biennial Trade Show fully lived up to its aspiration of being the world’s most important trade fair for transport, logistics and mobility.
The IAA Trade Show was evidence that an entire sector is anticipating change! The strategic orientation of the IAA, organized by the German Association of the Automotive Industry, was right on the button. In 2018, dynaCERT, along with a total of 2,174 exhibitors from 48 countries, outstripped exhibitor participation from the already very high figure from 2016! The number of visitors was also very high, despite the sometimes inclement weather, hot days at the beginning, and rain and storms on the weekend of the Trade Show. Yet the response of attendees at the IAA was definitely positive. The mood was excellent everywhere – among the exhibitors and the visitors.
The IAA positioned itself again as the marketplace for the experts in the commercial vehicle sector. The proportion of trade visitors was well over 80 percent of attendees and many of them were decision-makers.
The IAA also attracted a lot of online visits. There was much discussion of the IAA’s new developments and industry highlights in advance of the exhibition. In all, since the middle of August 2018, there have been over 75 million contacts worldwide, 60 million of them during the trade show itself. Half of the over 10,000 posts were written in English, which is more evidence of the international significance of the IAA. And more than 95 percent of posts and comments about the IAA are positive.
As a direct result of the disruptive nature of the new emission legislation in Europe, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) anxiously try to maintain the diesel engine industry and the jobs associated with them. Europeans see the HydraGEN™ Technology as proven technology to not only solve today’s current emission problems but also in helping in the growing demands in improved fuel economy while reducing emissions and greenhouse gases.
Interest by potential dealers and fleet operators was generated at the trade show by the unique and significant impact of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology especially as it applies to the large and receptive diesel market in Europe. New regulations coming into effect in 2019 and subsequently will require a revolutionary approach to emission reductions. The HydraGEN™ system performance as tested by TUV in Germany is beyond anything that is currently in the marketplace. Tested and proven emission reductions in NOx of 88%, CO of 50% and particulate matter of 75% are unmatched by any other current technology. The HydraGEN™ system is being seen as the forerunner to assist in re-establishing diesel power as the chosen engine in the marketplace.
Numerous visitors interested in dynaCERT and the performance of its HydraGENä Technology were greeted in dynaCERT’s 530 square foot (50sm) trade booth in the IAA New Technology Building where we displayed the HG-1 and HG-2 products along with our streaming video clearly displaying our technology.
Transport and industry representatives from around the world attended the dynaCERT booth. They represented more than 20 industries including: Bus – Transit, Bus – InterCity, off-road Construction, Equipment, Farming, Fleet Management, power generation, Fuel Cell, Logistic & Trucking, Mining Equipment, Original Equipment Manufacturers and Petroleum producers.
While in Europe, dynaCERT met several interested parties wanting to sell our products. As we continue to expand our distribution network, candidates were narrowed to 15 new qualified, potential dealers who could be added to dynaCERT’s existing 30 dealers worldwide.
Two new authorized dynaCERT dealers were signed up with sales commitments upon dynaCERT’s receipt of the ABE Certification, (Homologation).
The CO2 Company in The Netherlands and the Russell Group Engineering in the United Kingdom. Stephen Madden, Senior Group Fleet Engineer of the Russell Group, stated: “Our endorsement of dynaCERT and its HydraGEN™ Technology is reinforced by the market interest expressed by our current logistics and transport customers throughout the UK and the world”. The Russell Group Engineering is part of John G Russell, one of the UK’s largest independent transport companies.
Other connections and ongoing talks include serious interest from BENELUX, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Korea, Lithuania, Mexico, Middle East Region, Norway, Spain and USA.
dynaCERT Inc. hosted several meetings while in Europe and are currently in ongoing talks with several Original Equipment Manufacturers which specifically sought us out once the news spread of dynaCERT’s innovative HydraGENä Technology and the testing results that have been achieved and verified by TUV, one of the most stringent and respected testing facilities in the world.
dynaCERT Inc. is awaiting the Algemeinbetriebserlaubnes (ABE) Certification License from the Government Kraftfahrtbundesamt (KBA) the German Ministry of Transportation. The current status of Homologation via the ABE application is that all testing has been completed and the HydraGEN™ Technology has passed in all the stringent tests. Once the ABE Homologation is issued, dynaCERT GmbH will be authorized to sell HydraGEN™ Units through our anxiously awaiting authorized dealers ready to install Units on to vehicles across Europe.
Jim Payne, dynaCERT Pres & CEO, commends our entire team at home and abroad, including engineering, R&D, Sales and manufacturing, with this very successful and worthwhile effort as we continue our Global expansion, exposing the world to our product line and our commitment of producing, testing, certifying and selling a Carbon Emission Reduction Technology that is “revolutionary and greatly needed in the world markets today”.
Enrico Schläpfer, dynaCERT’s VP of Global Sales, stated: “Building on the enthusiastic reception and interest from potential customers, dealers and other industry experts at IAA, dynaCERT is looking forward to continuing our European and Global expansion. Our HydraGENTM Technology is well-positioned to contribute to the objectives of carbon emission reductions of the European governments while also providing incentives for fleet and equipment operators by way of fuel savings. We look forward to continuing our expanding presence and sales in the region and globally.”
