The CII is an organization whose objectives are to improve the safety, productivity and environmental impact of the Construction Industry by discussing the best and newest techniques, technologies and systems available. The vast majority of their members currently use acetylene and were interested hearing about MagneGas2® as a safer, faster and more economical replacement.
A team consisting of CEO, Ermanno Santilli, Executive Vice President, Jack Armstrong, and Assistant Vice President of Sales, Spyro Vassiliou, conducted the presentation and discussed how MagneGas2® addresses the objectives of CII members with improved safety, productivity and cost reductions.
'We were very pleased to be invited to the prestigious CII Board of Advisors meeting in the first place and frankly, with their focus on improving the safety, productivity and environmental impact in construction and other fields we couldn't have been presenting to a better organization and audience,' commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas. 'I was impressed that immediately after the presentation several organizations had already spoken with their headquarters about MagneGas and we received numerous requests for demonstrations.

About MagneGas Corporation
MagneGas Corporation (MNGA). The Company owns a patented process that converts various liquid wastes into hydrogen based fuels. These fuels can be used as a replacement to natural gas or for metal cutting. The Company's testing has shown the fuels are faster, cleaner and more productive than other alternatives on the market. They are also cost effective and safe to use with little changeover costs. The Company currently sells MagneGas into the metal working market as a replacement to acetylene.
The MagneGas2 fuel production systems can be set-up locally using various types of feedstock. The Company believes this flexibility can give them an advantage in the Government/Military marketplace as fuels can be manufactured on site from raw materials found locally worldwide and eliminates the time and expense of shipping to the specific military theater. The Company is planning to establish joint ventures with third parties to construct these supply facilities worldwide.
The Company also sells equipment for the sterilization of bio-contaminated liquid waste for various industrial and agricultural markets. In addition, the Company is developing a variety of ancillary uses for MagneGas2 fuels utilizing its high flame temperature for co-combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and other advanced applications.
