In October 2020, Marubeni Corporation signed a distribution agreement with H2 Tek, a distributor of dynaCERT Inc., (hereinafter, "dynaCERT") in Canada, for the marketing of dynaCERT's “HydraGEN™?", an electrolysis system for diesel engines. Marubeni will sell HydraGEN™? primarily to mining equipment owners in 7 countries (*1) such as Latin America.
HydraGEN™? is a proprietary and patented electrolysis system which turns distilled water into hydrogen and oxygen, and introduces it into the air intake of diesel engines. HydraGEN™? reduces exhaust emissions of Carbon dioxide (CO2 , a greenhouse gas) , as well as pollutants such as Carbon monoxide (CO) , Nitrogen oxides (NOx), and Total Hydrocarbons (THC) (*2). HydraGEN™? also reduces fuel consumption, by increasing the fuel efficiency of engines (up to: 19%). HydraGEN™? can be applied to many types and sizes of equipment using diesel engines, such as cars, trucks, buses, generators, and construction equipment.
dynaCERT is a Canadian cleantech company founded in 2001. After 16 years of research and development, dynaCERT successfully commercialized HydraGEN™? in 2017 and now sells it around the world through H2 Tek and other distributors. In exploring new businesses, Marubeni found HydraGEN™? very unique since it can simultaneously reduce environmental loads and equipment costs for owners, and has concluded a distribution agreement with H2 Tek.
As climate change measures become much more important, the mining industry has also been making proactive efforts towards to have low-carbonization and de-carbonization by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Marubeni will expand the sales of HydraGEN™? through its channels of existing mining equipment businesses all over the world, and will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.
