DynaMotive's 10 TPD Plant Achieves Target Production Capacity

Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from DynaMotive Technologies Corporation

    VANCOUVER, April 10 /PRNewswire/ - DynaMotive Technologies Corporation
 (OTCBB: DYMTF) announced today that its new 10 tonne per day BioOil plant has
 met design production parameters. Fuel quality BioOil has been produced from
 BC wood residue at the 10 tonne per day rated capacity.
     Commenting on this milestone, Director of Engineering Warren Johnson
 said, "Meeting the design capacity on schedule confirms the strength of our
 design. These results validate the inherent scalability of the technology.
 Over the next few months, we intend to optimize the operation and design as
 well as commence work on our next scale-up to the 25-50 tonne per day
 capacity."
     The new BioOil plant was designed in-house by DynaMotive's Technology
 Group and constructed at the BC Research complex in Vancouver, BC. The plant
 conforms to all applicable safety, electrical and mechanical design standards,
 utilizing state-of-the-art 'smart' instrumentation and a high-powered
 industrial-grade distributed control system (DCS). The plant was designed to
 facilitate easy scale-up to commercial plant capacities. The fully automated
 plant has a production capacity of 6,000 litres of BioOil per day, providing
 much larger quantities of BioOil for engine and combustion test programs with
 partners.
     DynaMotive intends to become the world leader in the development of
 technology to produce competitively priced liquid fuels from biomass. BioOil
 is produced using patented technology that converts forest and agricultural
 wastes such as bark, sawdust and sugar cane bagasse into a liquid fuel. Unlike
 fossil fuels, BioOil is renewable, clean burning, low in emissions and
 greenhouse gas neutral. As a clean fuel for heat and power generation in
 boilers, gas turbines and diesel engines, BioOil presents significant market
 opportunities that DynaMotive intends to exploit commercially. The Company and
 its partners are also engaged in research and development on a range of
 derivative products that, if successful, could potentially further enhance the
 market and value of BioOil as an alternative fuel and product source.

 United States Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, regarding
 DynaMotive Technologies Corporation. Actual events or results may differ

 Company's filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission
 may also affect the actual results achieved by the Company.
