TAMPA, Fla. -- MagneGas Corporation ('MagneGas' or the 'Company') (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into MagneGas fuel, this week completed metal cutting demonstrations with over 40 representatives from the Fossil Fuel division of a major northeast Utility. The Company believes the demonstrations were successful as they have received multiple requests for fuel as a result of those meetings.
The Utility is one of the ten largest in the United States with over $35 billion in assets and large volume use of acetylene. Multiple company officials and representatives from the Fossil Fuel Division of the Utility were in attendance. This particular division is the largest user of acetylene and propane at the Company. The test used MagneGas to cut 2 inch steel plates and resulted in very little pre-heat time with clean cuts. Officials have indicated an interest in purchasing fuel and the Company is working through the procurement process with the Utility.
'The overwhelming feedback of these meetings was positive as they compared MagneGas2 to acetylene. The pre-heat was much quicker than acetylene and the speed of the cut substantially faster. A key strategy of ours has been to demonstrate our fuel to marquee customers to enable our pull through purchasing with local distribution. We are working through the procurement process with the Utility and expect to be filling orders shortly,' stated Ermanno Santilli, CEO Magnegas Corporation.
