TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 08/10/11 -- MagneGas Corporation ('MagneGas' or the 'Company') (OTCBB: MNGA), the producer of a technology that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based metal working fuel and natural gas alternative, announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding ('MOU') with Grease Depot, Inc. ('GDI') of Clearwater, FL to establish a waste processing and fuel production operation at GDI's facility, creating the Company's first satellite production operation. Under the terms of the MOU, MagneGas will place a 300 kWh Recycler (the 'Recycler') at the facility to process GDI's liquid waste and produce fuel for the metal working market. MagneGas will continue to own and operate the Recycler, and will lease the floor area from GDI through a profit sharing arrangement. GDI has also agreed to serve as a national demonstration center for the MagneGas Technology and its multi-purpose potential. The equipment the Company has placed at GDI consists of the very latest MagneGas Refinery with a horizontal Plasma Arc Through module and long life electrodes, as based on the latest patent application owned by MagneGas Corporation.
'This MOU represents a significant strategic leap forward for MagneGas,' stated MagneGas President Scott Wainwright. 'By operating our refinery industrially at an independent third party, we will be in a position to demonstrate commercially the various applications of our technology while also providing meaningful validation of our ability to generate revenue outside our own headquarters.'
'In MagneGas we believe we have found an ideal complement to our existing processes, one that both helps eliminate the liquid waste while also monetizing this resource through fuel production and sale,' stated GDI President Frankie Dee. 'We look forward to realizing the potential of this unique combination of service and technology.'
