VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(Business Wire)--
Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation (OTCBB:DYMTF), a leader in
cellulose based fuels technology, announced today it restarted
operations at its West Lorne, Ontario facility following completion of
its upgrade.

   The plant had undergone an upgrade process to increase its nominal
capacity to 130 tonnes of biomass input per day, a 30 % increase in
capacity, and to incorporate technological advances that were
developed and implemented in Dynamotive's 200 tonne per day capacity
plant located in Guelph, Ontario. The plant incorporates a 2.5
megawatt electric cogeneration package developed by Magellan

   The renewable biofuel produced at the plant, known as BioOil, is
made from waste wood and formulated for non-transportation industrial
applications. Fuel exports, as well as power generation, from the
plant are expected to start in March. Output of the plant is
contracted to power generation and specialty applications with some
production being reserved by Dynamotive for market development

   West Lorne progress will be reported on the Dynamotive website.

   About BioOil(R) Biofuel

   BioOil(R) is an industrial fuel produced from cellulose waste
material. When combusted it produces substantially less smog-precursor
nitrogen oxides ('NOx') emissions than conventional oil as well as
little or no sulfur oxide gases ('SOx'), which are a prime cause of
acid rain. BioOil(R) and BioOil Plus(TM) are price-competitive
replacements for heating oils #2 and #6 that are widely used in
industrial boilers and furnaces. They have been EcoLogo certified,
having met stringent environmental criteria for industrial fuels as
measured by Environment Canada's Environmental Choice Program.
BioOil(R) can be produced from a variety of residue cellulosic biomass
resources and is not dependent on food-crop production.

   About Dynamotive

   Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation is an energy solutions
provider headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, with offices in the USA,
UK and Argentina. Its carbon/greenhouse gas neutral fast pyrolysis
technology uses medium temperatures and oxygen-less conditions to turn
dry, waste cellulosic biomass into BioOil for power and heat
generation. BioOil can be further converted into vehicle fuels and
chemicals. The final stages of the commissioning process at the Guelph
plant and the reconstruction of the West Lorne plant may be seen by
