Brussels, 19 June 2019

The European Commission has found German plans to support the retrofitting of municipal and commercial diesel vehicles to be in line with EU State aid rules. The measure should contribute to reducing nitrogen oxides emissions by 1,450 tonnes per year, while limiting distortions of competition. Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, in charge of competition policy, said: “Tackling air pollution is one of Europe’s greatest challenges. So these three schemes provide a good incentive for vehicle operators in Germany to invest in cleaner vehicles in the most polluted German cities. This is a good example of how Member States can work to introduce measures that reduce air pollution, in line with both our rules and our common European objective of cleaner air for all.”

The three support schemes that Germany intends to set up, with an overall budget of around €431 million, will support the retrofitting of municipal and commercial vehicles (such as cleaning vehicles, garbage trucks and delivery vehicles) equipped with diesel engines. The public support will be available in over 60 municipalities (German Kommunen) where national limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions were exceeded in 2017, and will cover the costs of both the retrofitting systems and their installation.

The measures are part of the German Federal Government’s “Immediate Clean Air Programme for 2017-2020” (Sofortprogramm Saubere Luft 2017-2020), which aims to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions as quickly as possible.

The retrofitting will concern a large number of vehicles – in the German municipalities that will benefit from the schemes, there are currently over one million heavy and light municipal and commercial vehicles equipped with diesel engines.

The planned support for the retrofitting is expected to lead to substantial reductions of nitrogen oxides emissions in a very short period of time, improving air quality and public health, in particular in cities.

More specifically, the German authorities estimate that the retrofitting will have the following impact:

Category of Vehicle Expected Number of Vehicles Retrofitted Heavy Municipal (>3.5 tonnes) 8,120 Heavy Commercial (3.5-7.5 tonnes ) 20,000 Expected Annual NOx Reduction 750 tonnes 400 tonnes Light Municipal and Commercial (2.8-3.5 tonnes) 84,000 300 tonnes

The measures are also in line with the Commission’s 2018 Communication on “A Europe that protects: Clean air for all”, which states that, under EU State aid rules, Member States may facilitate investments in low and zero emission mobility for the benefit of clean air, while promoting the competitiveness of our industry. Member States can make use of these rules at national, regional or local level to effectively tackle emissions, for example from road transport.

On this basis, the Commission approved the measures under EU State aid rules, because they contribute to EU environmental goals without unduly distorting competition. Today’s decision is another example of how EU State aid rules enable Member States to support the fight against air pollution. In November 2018, the Commission had already approved a German State aid scheme to support the retrofitting of diesel buses used for local public transport.

#dynaCERT $DYA $DYFSF Receives #Initial #Order for #Europe

December 21, 2017) – dynaCERT Inc. (TSX VENTURE: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (DAX: DMJ) (“dynaCERT” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has secured a major new group of end users in Germany for its HydraGEN™ Technology.

dynaCERT has received purchase orders for 520 HydraGEN™ HG1-45 model Units having a total suggested retail price of $4,067,000. The purchase orders were received from the dynaCERT’s dealer for Germany and Switzerland, Hoer&Hoer GreenTech.  The Units are destined to KWK GmbH (“KWK”) which is part of a buying group with members constituting operators within the prolific agricultural industry that each manage one or more bio-diesel powered generators in the State of Bavaria and throughout Germany. The first 20 Units are scheduled for an immediate delivery in January 2018 and the remainder have a planned rollout throughout 2018, commencing in March.

Over several months, a HydraGEN™ HG1-45 was successfully tested by KWK at its facilities in Samerberg, Bavaria, Germany. In September 2017, this HG1-45 was installed on a Perkins Bio-Diesel Generator.  The generator has controls that monitor output power and fuel consumption.  In the first few weeks of testing with the HydraGEN™ HG1-45, initial fuel consumption of the generator was reduced by 6%. As testing progressed, with adjustments of the HydraGEN™ using the Smart ECU, the engine was able to achieve and maintain a minimum of 17.5% reduction in fuel consumption and the resulting reduction of carbon emissions.

Johann Tischner, CEO of KWK, states, “We at KWK are delighted with the HydraGEN™ HG1-45, especially with the fuel savings achieved and we decided for this reason to deepen our co-operation with dynaCERT and its German dealer, Hoer&Hoer GreenTech. This collaboration will see our members deploy the HydraGEN™ Technology on their generators in 2018.  These generators are all different sized engines some up to 500kW which may require 1, 2 or 3 HG1-45 Units each.”

Hoer&Hoer GreenTech, headquartered in Lahr, Germany has been the dynaCERT dealer since June 2017.  They have worked diligently in many sectors before realizing this first initial order with KWK. Ms. Shirley Hoer, CEO, states, “The dynaCERT team professionally supported KWK and ourselves in the rigorous testing of this bio-diesel generator. We and KWK highly appreciated the unconventional approach dynaCERT had in this testing phase.  Their engineers were able to monitor and control the HG1-45 Unit remotely from across the Atlantic Ocean in order to optimize the fuel consumption reduction.  Because of this realization and the outstanding results, we are engaging in a long-term cooperation with dynaCERT. In the case of KWK, this starts with our initial 520 Unit order for 2018.”

Enrico Schlaepfer, Vice President, Global Sales for dynaCERT, comments, “The immediately addressable market in Europe for stationary diesel-powered generators is approximately 125,000 installations.  This opportunity reveals a significant market in 2018 for dynaCERT to begin serving the Europeans who seek to greatly reduce their carbon footprint.   With this order and the resulting tested validation, we are commencing our market penetration strategy proceeding into the South Asia marketplace with a focus on public and private stationary diesel-powered generators that produce nearly 60% of the available electrical power across that region.”
