TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- dynaCERT Inc. (TSX VENTURE: DYA) ("dynaCERT" or the "Corporation") provides the following updates:
Testing and Data Sharing Agreements TTSI
As announced in the press release dated April 15th, 2014, the Corporation had provided and assisted in the installation of a HydraGen unit on a 2003 Peterbuilt Class 8 truck through Total Transportation Services Inc. ("TTSI") headquartered in Rancho Dominguez, California. After four months of on-going testing and data collection, TTSI has satisfied itself with respect to its analysis of fuel savings and is currently waiting for testing by an accredited, 3rd party testing facility to validate reduced toxicity of emissions.
Caribbean Pilot Project
dynaCERT announces that it has concluded phase 1 testing of the pilot project of the HydraGen technology with a stationary power generator in the Caribbean.
Phase 1 objective was testing and data collection that measures the performance characteristics of a
9R32 Wartsila generator with the induction of hydrogen and oxygen at varying concentrations, compared to baseline performance.
All the base line and testing data relating to fuel consumption and engine emission profile,completed by GSA-Lab a chemical and environmental lab based in the Dominican Republic, have now been received and are being evaluated by dynaCERT staff and two additional independent engineers, collectively. A full report defining fuel and toxic gas reductions is being compiled and will be forwarded to all related parties in the Caribbean for review. Updates concerning next phases will be announced upon approval.
Acquisition of Technology
As announced on February 28, 2014, dynaCERT Inc. executed a Letter of Intent to acquire ownership of the technology that underlies its principal product, the HydraGen. At present, the Corporation has an exclusive unrestricted, worldwide license to manufacture and market the Technology, in respect of which it pays a royalty fee of 6% of the net invoice price of such product sales. Under the LOI, the Corporation will acquire the Technology (including all patents, patents pending, intellectual property, etc.) for a purchase price of $750,000. The foregoing price shall be paid out of the sales of HydraGen units, with 50% of the profits from such sales being paid to the vendor and attributed to the purchase price.
The LOI is non-binding and is subject to being superseded by a formal purchase and sale agreement, which is expected to be executed and closed next quarter.
Appointments to Advisory Board
dynaCERT is pleased to announce the appointments of Dean Ross and Gerald Solensky Sr to its Advisory Board.
Mr. Ross is a retired Mechanical Engineer (University of Toronto) with 30+ year experience as Project Manager and Manager of mechanical engineering, mining and metallurgical consultants.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
