dynaCERT is a global company, based in Toronto, Canada, that manufactures and distributes Carbon Emission Reduction Technology. Last year, Alectra commenced a pilot program whereby thirteen (13) of the utility’s fleet vehicles, which are equipped with dynaCERT’s patented HydraGEN™ Technology, were closely monitored for the pilot program. dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology systems saved over 8,000 kilograms of CO2e and each vehicle reduced their diesel consumption on various utility vehicles by 230 litres, on average. With dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology, the pilot program results have shown that Alectra could reduce its carbon emissions and fuel costs by over ten percent (10%) based on Alectra’s 2021 data of its entire fleet.
dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology, in the past, has been shown to achieve up to the following reductions:
- Fuel savings: 10.0%
- CO² emissions: 9.6%
- NOx emissions: 88.7%
- CO emissions: 46.7%
- THC emissions: 57%,
- Particulate matter (black smoke): 55.3%
“Windfall Ecology Centre is proud to introduce to our members the impressive results achieved by dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology,” said Brent Kopperson, Executive Director and Founder. “We applaud Alectra for their innovation and foresight in advancing environmentally sustainable practices.”
“In Ontario, Canada and globally, dynaCERT fosters private and public sector collaborations with organizations focused on innovation in order to achieve sustainability and make a difference in a tangible way,” said Jim Payne, President and CEO of dynaCERT. “I congratulate Alectra for their commitment and leadership and commend the Windfall Ecology Centre for providing a forum for sustainability discussion among community partners, and recognition of work well done.”
dynaCERT has received the Smart Sustainable Company Rating Seal after a rigorous analysis of Triple-A Analytics GmbH of Austria. This honourable distinction of dynaCERT and its HydraGEN™ Technology as it applies to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and United Nations Global Compact Principles, has been evaluated as “high,” the highest global ranking in its category.
