In a recent press release, dynaCERT Inc. (TSXV: DYA) announced the sale of ten HydraGEN™ units to Toronto based Newport Environmental (Newport). These units formed an integral part of a program developed by the Sparta Group (TSXV: SAY) to demonstrate how single-use waste plastic can be viably transformed from seemingly useless garbage into clean transportation fuel, using a synergistic combination of two Canadian technologies. Not only does the combination of technologies offer a solution to a tremendous environmental problem, but also the combination significantly cuts costs in the process. The plan is to have the entire fleet of Newport traveling daily, back-and-forth across Highway 401 in Ontario, powered by transformed plastic that is augmented with dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology system. Furthermore, the success of the technology is demonstrated and monitored by dynaCERT’s unique HydraLytica™ telematics monitoring system.
As a result, people and governments are starting to take notice.
Case in point, on Thursday August 8, 2019, Jim Payne, CEO of dynaCERT, attended the taping of an interview by journalist Talia Ricci from CBC Toronto, interviewing Sparta’s President, John O’Bireck. During the interview they talked about the technology used to turn single-use-plastic into clean transportation including how dynaCERT’s technology was used to not only assist with the reduced combustion of fuel in the Ontario vehicles engines but was used in the transformation process as well. The CBC report is scheduled to air today, Tuesday August 13, at 6 p.m.
Also in attendance were Mr. Eric Wong, Mr. Jeff Liu and Mr. Francis Ko, all from Phoenix Canada as well as Ms. Sheila McGrory, Manager of Economic Development – Town of Whitby and Mr. Daniel Van Kampen, Economic Development Officer – Town of Whitby.

Currently, Sparta’s vehicles travel across the Toronto area along Highway 401 as well as into the Niagara Peninsula and on occasion into up-state New York. Over a 12-month period more than 1,700,000 kilometres of road time will be clocked, consuming an awful lot of diesel fuel and as a result, emitting a significant amount of GHG each year; but much less emissions with the application of these two technologies working together.
The hypothesis is that by outfitting the Newport fleet with dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology, combined with Phoenix’s plastics-based synthetic fuel additive, fuel economy will be optimized while greatly reducing GHG emissions and all to be verified using dynaCERT’s HydraLytica™ system.
It is also of note that, in addition to outfitting the ten Newport vehicles as indicated above, two HydraGEN™ Technology units have also been installed on the Phoenix reactor that transforms the plastic into our innovative fuel additive; assisting the conversion process of plastic to fuel with important results. In fact, Mr. Eric Wong, President of Phoenix and the brains behind the Phoenix system, stated that, “Upon the addition of the HydraGEN™ units the emissions from the reactor were noticeably reduced; any black smoke was no longer visible.”
“At this point we are looking to prove how the HydraGEN™ system and the PTA process can be complimentary.” said John O’Bireck, President of Sparta and a member of dynaCERT Advisory Board. He went on to say, “When we show that they work well together, we believe it will open up many doors to new markets. We want to thank all those who are participating in this important demonstration as their efforts could have a significant impact in finding viable ways to address the worlds’ plastic disposal epidemic.”
