Hydrogen technology for retrofitting
dynaCERT is the newcomer of the hydrogen scene, with a technology that has been awarded several prizes. The company has been working on the product launch of its innovation since 2019. The technology is called HydraGEN and can be offered to customers in different sizes. The size of the HydraGEN unit depends on the application, the larger the combustion engine, the larger the unit of dynaCERT for retrofitting.
HydraGEN makes diesel green
The advantage of HydraGEN is that the unit produces hydrogen from distilled water on demand and adds it to the diesel engine as a catalyst during the combustion process. This increases the efficiency of the engine and reduces fuel consumption by up to 20%. In addition, the emission of pollutants is significantly reduced. Measurements have shown a reduction in NOx of up to 88%. The emission of particulate matter is reduced by up to 55% and CO2 up to 10%.
Well-known investors on board
With dynaCERT's innovation, existing vehicles do not need to be replaced and the market is correspondingly large with around one billion diesel engines. One of the largest European automobile logistics companies has understood this. The Mosolf Group has been working closely with dynaCERT since last year and with the investment of Eric Sprott, who invested CAD 14 million in a financing round, another prominent market participant came on board.
CEO Jim Payne introduced the company yesterday at the 29th MKK Conference from GBC AG and the presentation is available via the following link: webcasts.eqs.com/mkk2020dynacert/de
Need for investment burdens expansion
The Canadian company Ballard Power has been developing fuel cells for more than three decades to use hydrogen as an energy source without CO2 emissions. Ballard Power's solutions are now used in many areas of logistics and energy supply. Similar to the plant manufacturer NEL ASA, the customer or state must be willing to invest in order to realize the development of a hydrogen infrastructure.
In Germany, there is already a filling station network for gasoline and diesel consisting of more than 14,000 branches. The construction of a comparable network with hydrogen would probably cost well over EUR 20 billion. However, a modern network alone is not enough; then customers will also need competitive vehicles with fuel cells.
Catch-up potential for the newcomer
Considering that the response to the Corona Pandemic has put a massive strain on the public sector budget, it can be assumed that the solution of dynaCERT, consisting of existing vehicles and the filling station network, will have a competitive advantage in the foreseeable future. Bottom line, however, any solution that contributes to environmental protection is good and important. In comparison, however, stock market valuations still differ, with Ballard Power valued at EUR 2.3 billion, dynaCERT at EUR 150 million and NEL ASA at EUR 1.5 billion. A possible catch-up potential is obvious.
