dynaCERT proprietary HydraGEN technology destined for South America miner

dynaCERT Inc’s dealer, H2 Tek LP, has put in more purchase orders to dynaCERT for its proprietary HydraGEN™ technology, with a total of 161 units to be fulfilled in 2023, destined for one of its mining customers with operations in South America.

These orders follow positive results of several pilot projects as previously announced by dynaCERT, whereby H2 Tek had advised dynaCERT that the company’s HydraGEN Technology had been installed at certain mining operations in Chile, Peru, Brazil, Argentina and Australia by H2 Tek. These installations were pilot projects to test the numerous benefits and impacts of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN Technology on mining equipment with the intent that successful pilot projects can result in the adoption of the technology to be used for mining equipment and mining fleet applications.

Following the completion of such pilot projects, H2 Tek has indicated to dynaCERT that it has reported very compelling results to such mining and resource companies involved in pilot projects which evaluated dynaCERT’s HydraGEN Technology, including its customer for these purchase orders.

Joao Araujo, Vice President of Global Operations and Partner of H2 Tek, says: “Our customer is a major mining operator in South America. The HydraGEN solution fits perfectly with its commitment to improve its performance with the use of clean energy, in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in operations and in the value chain. This project is just the first step for us to support our client’s ESG objectives.”

HydraGEN is a carbon emissions reduction device for all types and sizes of diesel engines. dynaCERT says: “As part of the growing global hydrogen economy, our patented technology creates hydrogen and oxygen on-demand through a unique electrolysis system and supplies these gases through the air intake to enhance combustion, resulting in lower carbon emissions and greater fuel efficiency.”

dynaCERT said recently that Codelco had been using the technology on board Komatsu 930E trucks at its Radomiro Tomic mine site, in Chile, to reduce GHG emissions and fuel savings.

David Van Klaveren, VP Global Sales/Partner of H2 Tek and Araujo, stated: “Certain large mining vehicles can consume more than 1 million litres of fuel per year, which, with assumed fuel and emission reductions of an assumed 10%, could offset up to 270 t of CO2e per year. We look forward to playing an important role in helping mine operators achieve their carbon emission reduction targets.”

Jim Payne, President & CEO of dynaCERT, added: “We are pleased to support H2 Tek’s mining and resource customers as committed users of our proprietary HydraGEN Technology. The growth of international acceptance of our HydraGEN Technology products, which are designed to reduce fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions in diesel internal combustion engines, encourages our company to continue to actively foster greenhouse gas emission reductions on a global basis.”

dynaCERT carbon emission reduction engine tech heads to South American open-pit mines

dynaCERT Inc says seven of its HydraGEN™ Technology Units (HG1R, 4C and 6C units) are to be installed at open-pit mines in Peru, Argentina and Brazil.

H2 Tek, dynaCERT’s dealer, focuses on equipping mining companies throughout the globe with dynaCERT’s proprietary patented HydraGEN technology. In conjunction with its partners, H2 Tek has indicated to dynaCERT that the company’s proprietary 4C and 6C HydraGEN Units are very desired by several world-class open-pit mining operations in the Americas, which are owned and operated by some of the world’s largest international mining conglomerates.

Along with other H2 Tek installations, these technologies will be installed in open-pit mines on various equipment, including Caterpillar 793 and 777 haul trucks and a large 4.5 MW diesel generator with a Cat 280-16 engine.

“Global mining companies recognize the immediate imperatives of utilising commercially and readily available technologies to reduce their carbon footprint and welcome and embrace dynaCERT’s patented 4C and 6C HydraGEN Technology, which is particularly suited to the mining, construction and oil & gas industries,” dynaCERT says.

In 2021 and 2022, dynaCERT’s 4C and 6C HydraGEN technology has been redesigned to adapt to the rigourous requirements of the harsh environments of open-pit mining operations, which are commonly located at high altitudes and inclement conditions in remote areas throughout the globe, it said.

David Van Klaveren, Vice President of Global Sales of H2 Tek, said: “Our national and multinational customers appreciate the significant promise of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN technology and look forward to advancing progress for their ESG priorities through its successful implementation.”

Jim Payne, President & CEO of dynaCERT, added: “I am very pleased to now deploy our proprietary HydraGEN technology with global mining companies operating under harsh conditions. Our proprietary and patented HydraGEN technology is designed to reduce fuel consumption in internal combustion engines and reduce carbon and NOx emissions: so important to providing a global solution to reduce pollution. Progressive mining companies are the trailblazers that fight a noble battle against air pollution.”

dynaCERT manufactures and distributes carbon emission reduction technology for use with internal combustion engines. As part of the growing global hydrogen economy, its patented technology creates hydrogen and oxygen on-demand through a unique electrolysis system and supplies these gases through the air intake to enhance combustion, resulting in lower carbon emissions and greater fuel efficiency, it says.
