DynaCERT

Overview

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX:DYA,OTCQX:DYFSF,FRA:DMJ) is a Canadian company with a global solution to reduce pollution. The company has developed the next generation of carbon emission reduction technology for diesel engines in the global market, providing significant fuel savings to the operator. dynaCERT’s verified HydraGENTMtechnology uses a proprietary electrolysis system to turn distilled water into hydrogen and oxygen gases on demand.

HydraGENTM is currently sold in North America and Europe for use in on-road applications and diesel generators. Third-party validated testing results show that HydraGENTM is a unique technology with the ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 50 percent and enhance fuel efficiency by up to 19.2 percent for diesel engines of all sizes. The company’s strategy is to expand internationally while developing numerous applications of its HydraGENTM technology in multiple vertical markets.

dynaCERT has established a unique and diversified team around the world, in different jurisdictions, aimed at numerous vertical markets,” said dynaCERT President and CEO Jim Payne. “We have prepared for a future of our proud Canadian company based in Toronto to market its revolutionary technology around the world.”

dynaCERT’s technology is designed for use with all types and sizes of diesel engines used in on-road vehicles, reefer trailers, off-road construction, power generation, mining equipment, forestry equipment, marine vessels and railroad locomotives. Through partnerships with industry leaders, major corporations and government bodies, dynaCERT is strengthening its position in the trucking industry while expanding into the light truck, rail, marine and stationary generator markets.

In April 2018, dynaCERT started the Type Approval under Transport Canada and Lloyds Register policies for equipment on marine vessels under the Safety of Life at Sea rules and regulations.

dynaCERT is also targeting the global mining industry as a key market for its technology. HydraGENTM Technology recently earned approval for underground mining applications in Canada. The mining industry is highly dependent on diesel fuel at a time when many mining firms are looking for ways to be more environmentally sustainable. The company showcased HydraGENTM technology at the 2019 Prospectors and Developers Association Convention (PDAC), one of the world’s largest mining conferences.

dynaCERT is gaining a foothold in the European market with the establishment of a wholly-owned company, dynaCERT GMBH, in Germany. TUV NORD and TUV SUD testing and certification were completed in 2018 and the company recently received its KBA Homologation certification. dynaCERT has secured a dealer in Scotland to distribute the HydraGENTM product line across the UK, and has launched a pilot project in Austria to demonstrate emissions reductions from government diesel-powered vehicles.

In Germany, dynaCERT has partnered with Mosolf SE & CO. AG under an MOU that includes a HydraGENTM technology dealer agreement and a purchase order for 1,000 units in 2020. MOSOLF and its subsidiaries will serve as HydraGENTM dealers with the rights to sell and install the technology throughout the European Union. MOSOLF intends to market the technology to the federal and local government entities in Germany. Due to strong demand, dynaCERTshipped the first of one hundred HydraGENTM units to MOSOLF in November 2019, ahead of the 2020 schedule.

In India, the company already has received iCat certification, earned firm orders, signed LOIs with two provinces and through its dealers is continuing in talks with governments of India about the ways dynaCERT’s technology can help address the nation’s major air pollution problems. In the Middle East, the company has established relationships with distributors in the key markets of Dubai and Israel.

dynaCERT has also established a presence in Mexico, through its partner KarbonKleen Inc. To date, KarbonKleen has ordered 400 HydraGENTM units for its clients who supply trucking equipment to the largest labor union in Mexico.

Key Projects

Key Technology: HydraGENTM

Delivering carbon emission reduction technologies and cutting-edge solutions for a global market.

dynaCERT’s HydraGENTM system is a portable, safe and reliable aftermarket technology that uses distilled water to produce hydrogen and oxygen gases on demand for use in internal combustion engines. The HydraGENTM has the ability to adjust to various concentrations of hydrogen and oxygen mixtures to calibrate the perfect formula for specific engine types, maximizing benefits. The technology is designed with safety features that ensure hydrogen is never stored within the unit nor on board a vehicle.

The system includes a smart electronic control unit (ECU) that reads, collects and stores data pertaining to fuel efficacy and emissions. dynaCERT’s Smart ECU can interface with the onboard computer of any engine and can be remotely accessed by both the company and end-users, allowing for the monitoring of fuel savings, carbon credits and GPS tracking.

“Our team, led by a former RIM technology expert, has developed a smart ECU that is constantly learning, gathering analytics, and using algorithms to modify the flow of gases depending on the condition variables—climate, altitude, hills, torque, humidity, etc.—to find the sweet spot,” said Payne. “That is something that certainly separates us from anything else in the market.”

In May 2019, dynaCERT announced it had received a US patent for its SMART ECU and a second patent in August 2019.

“My team and I worked diligently to build the SMART ECU as a first step to be able to control the HydraGENTM Technology products,” said dynaCERT Senior Technical Advisor David Bridge. “This patent firmly establishes dynaCERT as a Canadian innovator in the field of carbon emission tracking and carbon credit solutions.”

Introducing hydrogen into the air intake of a diesel engine creates a cleaner, more efficient burn.

Conventional emission control solutions treat engine exhaust gases after the burn, at the expense of power and fuel economy. The HydraGENTM system treats toxic emissions at the source.

Benefits of the technology include:

  • increased fuel economy
  • increased torque
  • extended engine oil life
  • significant reduction in carbon emissions

dynaCERT announced lab test results for its HG1 unit for class 8 trucks in November 2016. After 20-plus hours of testing, the Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) verified HydraGENTM fuel savings and emissions reductions.

“The HydraGENTM’s capability to reach up to 50 percent in the reduction of greenhouse gases and over 19 percent in fuel savings met and exceeded our expectations. Trucks equipped with the HydraGENTM unit can reduce particulate matter by over 65 percent, significantly reducing the black smoke being emitted into the environment,” Payne stated.

In October 2016, dynaCERT also took possession of a new 8,000-square-foot facility. The lease expansion provided the capacity to produce 2,000 HydraGENTM units per shift monthly, at a retail price of US$8,750 or US$10,000 once installed.

In August 2019, dynaCERTlaunched its HydraGENTM HG2 line. The HG2 units are smaller and provide similar advantages to the HG1 model. The HG2 unit is ideal for use in smaller diesel engines used in buses, class 2 and class 7 vehicles, refrigerator trailers and containers, mobile construction equipment, small generators and smaller trucks typically found in Europe and India.

Diesel Trucking Market

Carbon emission reduction and increased fuel economy are the HydraGENTM’s two most critical features for the transportation industry of today and tomorrow.

The US trucking industry represents an estimated 15.5 million trucks with an average of 192,000 new trucks sold each year and accounts for nearly 13 percent of the nation’s total fuel consumption. Fuel is the number one largest fixed cost for the trucking industry.

dynaCERT,’s initial HydraGENTM unit design is targeted at transport trucks and is capable of delivering three liters per minute. The system is powered directly from the vehicle’s power system for high electrical efficiency. The water reservoir and the rest of the system is contained in a lightweight, impact-resistant, Kraton-modified ABS cabinet that is mounted to the outside of the vehicle.

While initial production is expected to focus on sales to the trucking industry, the company is also poised to become a major supplier of carbon emission reduction technology to the automotive, light-truck, rail, marine and off-grid power sectors.

Fleet management system and application

In December 2016, dynaCERT retained Nektar Data Systems, an international fleet management systems consulting group, to create a fleet management system capable of providing real-time tracking, monitoring, analysis and reporting from data collected by the dynaCERT Smart ECU. Using a portal fully controlled and managed by dynaCERT, HydraGENTM technology users can view their performance in real-time.

To supplement its HydraGENTM technology, dynaCERT has launched a vehicle telematics device software called HydraLyticaTM, which provides easy access to fuel savings and carbon emission reduction reports. The telemetry device allows the company, its dealers and clients to monitor truck engine performance, diesel fuel economy and carbon emission reductions. the calculated savings of diesel and carbon emissions as a truck is traveling. HydraLyticaTM is expected to provide the company with proof to the market that the HydraGENTM technology works as stated.

dynaCERT is working with world-renowned data security software company, Cosario Limited to ensure user privacy with its HydraLyticaTM software. Cosario’s management team were pioneers in the same critical data security software which is now used in international payments systems such as Apple Pay and PayPal. By ensuring data security, dynaCERT can stay compliant with the data privacy laws including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.

Carbon Credits

In March 2019, dynaCERT initiated carbon credit applications for its HydraGENTM technology. It is estimated that a Class 8 truck traveling long haul routes can generate up to $1,500 euros per year (C$2,278 per year) in carbon credits based on the current market price of $15 euros per tonne of carbon dioxide. dynaCERT’s goal is to create a world-wide program to enable any earned carbon credits to be shared with end-users of its HydraGENTM technology under a contractual subscription program.

dynaCERT’s innovative proprietary software algorithms in its SMART ECU2 can track the creation of carbon credits. The company has added successful fintech entrepreneur Brian Semkiw to its advisory board. Semkiw recently engaged his organization, 3rdGP, to further develop software that will enable the tracking of carbon credits generated by dynaCERT’s HydraGENTM technology. 3rdGP is the world’s first third-generation processing payments company with an emphasis on blockchain and IoT payments processing solutions.

Large stationary power generator, rail and marine markets

dynaCERT has designed a 300 liter per minute HydraGENTM unit for use in large stationary power generation combustion engines for the utilities, rail and marine industries. Nearly three-quarters of installed generating capacity in the Caribbean is diesel-engine based. Wartsila engines are commonly used on transport shipping vessels. Outfitting just one cargo ship could generate close to $1 million in sales. Globally, there are more than 90,000 commercial cargo ships in operation today.

dynaCERT is currently in discussions with mining producers operating globally to employ the HG145-6C technology on their equipment, machinery and mine-site generating stations. The HG145-6C is a multi-cell unit developed by dynaCERT for installation on larger diesel engines used in heavy industry, construction, ships, rail, mining, oil and gas and stationary generators world-wide.

Through its dealer, H2 Tek, the company received an initial order for three HG145-6C large engine HydraGENTM technology products from an international leader in mining for deployment in a large Brazilian open-pit mine as well as another mining company in Argentina. The client is looking to reduce its environmental footprint by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of its fleet of mining trucks and equipment. H2 Tek is currently in discussions with over 20 large mining companies operating in Chile, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the US to further develop a market for dynaCERT’s technology.

In April 2019, dynaCERT entered into an agreement with Total Equipment Services Inc. (TES), an underground mining equipment manufacturer. It is the company’s first significant agreement with an original equipment manufacturer. TES has become a dealer of dynaCERT’s HydraGENTM technology and is expected to market dynaCERT’s HG145 products to its clients in Canada. The companies are also expected to work together to create new markets for dynaCERT’s products and integrate HydraGEN™ technology with equipment manufactured by TES. In November 2019, TES has launched a user case study involving a comprehensive analysis that will track the effectiveness of the HydraGENTM Technology in underground mining operations by measuring the changes in emissions and fuel economy.

KarbonKleen Partnership

In July 2019, dynaCERTreceived an initial purchase order for 100 HydraGENTM HG145B units from KarbonKleen. Prior to the purchase order being placed, KarbonKleen had partnered with Alliance Holdings Group, which supplies trucking equipment to one of the largest labor unions in Mexico.

Shortly after the initial order was secured, KarbonKleen placed an order for an additional 300 HG145B units and provided end-users of dynaCERT ‘s technology with a compelling financing alternative. The new financing alternative falls under a monthly subscription service that KarbonKleen has agreed to facilitate.

Customers who sign onto a two-year subscription through one of the company’s dealers are eligible for the KarbonKleen money-back guarantee if their registered trucks drive at least 5,000 miles (8,047 kilometres) per month. If dynaCERT’s technology doesn’t save the client more than its subscription price, KarbonKleen indicates that it will refund the subscription cost.

In November 2019, dynaCERTcompleted the delivery of the first one hundred and fifty HydraGENTM Technology Units to KarbonKleen for installations in Mexico. KarbonKleen’s clients span five different trade unions under the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM), the largest trade union federation in the country. Together these unions control 1 million trucks used for a variety of types of shipments including trans-border to the USA.

“At KarbonKleen, we are very pleased that such a large organization as CTM has placed their confidence in our companies and the HydraGENTM Technology, including our ability to deliver in a timely manner. Such an important project will result in significant fuel savings for workers in Mexico as well as provide a front-line offensive against the grave pollution problem crippling Mexico City, ” said Brian Semkiw, CEO of KarbonKleen.

The service is immediately available to the residents of the state, with the regional hub situated in Austin. STEER EV has been growing its fleet in Q1 - Q2 2022, and plans an ambitious expansion trajectory both in fleet size and geographical presence for Q3 through Q4.

STEER EV Subscription Platform Expands to Texas (CNW Group/Facedrive Inc.)

STEER EV, a technology-driven EV subscription platform, was acquired by the Company from Exelorate Enterprises LLC, a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation (NASDAQ: EXC), in September 2020 . STEER EV was created to challenge the traditional car ownership model and accelerate the general public's switchover to environmentally friendly transportation through an automobile subscription service. The Company feels its turnkey month-to-month model – which includes insurance, maintenance, vehicle swaps and concierge delivery – presents an attractive alternative for customers seeking a time-efficient and hassle-free service.

The Company sees STEER's EV subscription business capitalizing on two mega-trends in the personal transport industry. The global electric vehicle market is expected to grow at an appreciable rate of 26.8% CAGR from 2021 to 2030 1 , and consumers are increasingly opting for more flexible driving options such as per-use or subscription-based services instead of traditional car ownership. STEER EV's expansion into Texas is also a critical step in the scaling up of the Company's operations, as this state represents the second largest car market in the United States . 2

In the first phase of its launch in Texas , STEER's fleet will consist of Tesla Model S for the "Premier Performance" tier, Tesla Model Y for the "Preferred Plus" tier and Tesla Model 3 vehicles for the "Preferred" tier. The Company feels the local market response has been particularly strong and has already resulted in significant oversubscription, based on the Company's current capacity levels in the region. STEER plans to meet this demand by continuing to scale up operations, including adding more vehicles to the fleet in the weeks to follow.

STEER's expansion to Texas comes within the context of rising gas prices, coupled with growing public attention to the issue of climate change and governments' intensifying efforts to mitigate these effects. As an ESG ecosystem, STEER is committed to addressing environmental, social and governance concerns, and will continue working towards a better future alongside responsible governments, businesses and individuals. Capitalizing on the ongoing dramatic shift in the automotive industry and consumer behavior patterns, the Company's STEER EV division has embraced the rising global trends of environmental consciousness and sharing economy.

STEER EV aims to combine the compelling story behind STEER's vision with excellent customer service standards and a commitment to operational excellence. Its customer signup process is easy and can be started in one click on the official STEER EV mobile app in IOS and Android app stores, while more information on the service and support options is available on the STEER EV website www.steerev.com . STEER's all-in subscription price for an EV vehicle includes driver essentials such as insurance, routine maintenance and repair, and a concierge service that removes the hassle of car ownership while enabling seamless vehicle swaps. STEER's seamless user experience, bespoke concierge service and growing fleet enables it to aspire for a leadership position in the industry and grow a loyal fan base in its existing markets.

"The launch of STEER EV to Texas, USA , marks an important next step in the platform's North American expansion and reflects the ever-growing demand for environmentally responsible transport by both individuals and enterprises. Furthermore, STEER EV meets an unfulfilled demand in the marketplace for a turnkey car subscription service. Having proved the efficacy and the popularity of the STEER business model in our Washington and Toronto markets, we are focused on replicating its success in Texas and offer hassle-free and flexible access to high-quality EV's to the state's residents. After Texas , our nationwide rollout will continue with the launch in Florida which is anticipated in the next 60 days, followed by launches in British Columbia and California ," said Suman Pushparajah , CEO of STEER.

About the Company

STEER is an integrated ESG technology platform that moves people and delivers things through subscription and on-demand services. The Company's goal is to build a one-of-a-kind system that aggregates conscientious users, through a series of connected offerings, and enables them to buy, sell, or invest with the same platform, STEER.

REPEAT -- Alkaline Fuel Cell Power Highlights First Half 2022 Milestones and Provides Second Half 2022 Outlook

ALKALINE FUEL CELL POWER CORP. (NEO: PWWR) (OTCQB:ALKFF) (Frankfurt: 77R, WKN: A3CTYF) ("AFCP" or the "Company") a diversified investment platform developing affordable, renewable, and reliable energy assets and cleantech, is pleased to highlight our first half 2022 milestones and provide our outlook for the second half of the year and beyond.

"In addition to ongoing success in the development of our alkaline fuel cell technology, AFCP is prudently diversifying into assets offering more immediate revenue potential to support its eventual transition to sales of alkaline fuel cells," commented Frank Carnevale, Chief Executive Officer. "I'm pleased to announce that AFCP is advancing its acquisitions, investments and scaling of our energy asset business activities over the second half of 2022."

Highlights for the First Half of 2022

Through the first six months of 2022, the Company successfully announced and achieved the following milestones:

  • Acquired AI Renewable's CHP (combined heat and power) business, originally announced on March 4 and closed on April 22 , gaining a pipeline of potential projects including an estimated $50 million of additional CHP systems that can be brought into commercial operation over the next 24-36 months, which has the potential to generate gross revenue up to ~$16.6 million, potential EBITDA up to ~$7.7 million and potential net income up to ~$1.6 million, should all potential CHP systems be brought into commercial operations;
  • Listed the Company's shares on the OTCQB March 28 th under the ticker "ALKFF";
  • Appointed new CEO , Frank Carnevale, effective May 10 th to drive our global growth in energy transformation;
  • Achieved the first key milestone in the development of our hydrogen fuel cell, announced on May 19 th , with the successful creation of a functioning, bench test, single stack and system operation at working temperature, which supports AFCP's drive towards commercializing a 4kW Micro-CHP system;
  • Rebranded AI Renewable's CHP business to PWWR Flow Streams ("PWWR Flow") and unveiled a complementary new corporate tag line, "PWWR to the People" on June 8 th in keeping with the notion of providing power directly to customers on their sites, and aligned with our belief that the energy transition to a zero carbon economy must empower the masses to take control of their energy needs: PWWR to the People ; and
  • Appointed Carmine Marcello as Advisor on June 16, bringing expertise as the former President and CEO of Hydro One Inc., one of Canada's largest electric transmission and distribution utilities with a market cap of over $20 billion and over $23 billion in assets.

Diversification and Strength in Focus for Second Half of 2022 and Beyond

For the balance of 2022 and over the longer-term, AFCP has identified numerous targets and goals we are striving to realize across multiple lines of our business. In addition to enhancing our stable revenue stream, we are focused on a future-forward vision to commercialize our advanced hydrogen fuel cell technology to meet the massive global market need, and ultimately generate compelling returns for investors. Outlined below are a few of our objectives:

Corporate Initiatives

  • Enhance financial flexibility by exploring opportunities to leverage the use of flow-through shares to minimize AFCP's equity requirements for ongoing development and advancement of CHP projects;
  • Identify, nurture and execute on strategic acquisitions of additional attractive energy assets, earnings-positive service companies in the power and energy space, and/or synergistic clean technology assets or companies; and
  • Source and secure working capital for acquisitions and growth capital, as may be required.

Ongoing Growth of PWWR Flow Streams

  • Expand the Company's asset installation base leveraging our ongoing revenue and earnings generated through PWWR Flow as we continue to develop the $50 million worth of PWWR Flow projects in our pipeline over the next two years.

Continue to Progress Commercialization of Fuel Cell Power NV

  • Achieve next critical milestone on the path to achieving a fully functioning 4kW fuel cell system within a laboratory configuration;
  • Further accelerate and ramp up efforts to bring fuel cells to market, globally;
  • Develop and implement strategies to establish large-scale and cost-effective fuel cell manufacturing capabilities; and
  • Secure additional strategic partnerships for the piloting and deployment of fuel cells in North America.

Studies indicate that North America's CHP industry is projected to reach over US$800 million, propelled by favorable regulatory policies toward net energy metering, combined with rising demand for captive power generation and growing consumer inclination toward sustainable energy. Increasing concerns about GHG emissions coupled with improved efficiency, reliability and safety across cogeneration units are expected to further propel product adoption 1 . Globally, the CHP market is expected to grow from an estimated US$26.6 billion in 2021 to US$35.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.8%. 2 The combination of these macro factors represents a supportive environment for AFCP to continue deploying our PWWR Flow systems to customers across North America, which provides a stable revenue stream while we continue to develop our advanced hydrogen fuel cell technology and bring ‘PWWR to the People' .
