CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, December 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Advanced industrial uses for hydrogen based fuels continue to make strides in the industrial sector while sustainable, natural gas alternatives to current fuels used for Commercial & Industrial projects lead to lucrative opportunities with a significant impact for leading companies such as MagneGas Corporation (NASDAQ: MNGA), Air Products and Chemicals, Inc (NYSE: APD), Praxair, Inc. (NYSE: PX), The Dow Chemical Company's (NYSE: DOW) and Airgas, Inc. (NYSE: ARG)
MagneGas Corporation (NASDAQ: MNGA) an award winning technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into MagneGas2® fuel, announced today that a lead sub-contractor for a major Kennedy Space Center build-out project has placed their first order for MagneGas2® fuel. The fuel will be used for the metal cutting portion of the project which is anticipated to be significant. S&R Enterprises LLC, a lead sub-contractor for the $100 + million Kennedy Space Center project that will last approximately 2 years, was first introduced to MagneGas® about 3 weeks ago during a demonstration arranged by a MagneGas partner, Suwannee Ironworks. Suwannee is MagneGas's partner in a MagneGas subsidiary, ESSI of North Florida. ESSI is an industrial supply, gases and safety supplies & products provider.

Immediately after the demonstration, S&R chose to switch to MagneGas2® and requested pricing and training for its personnel (and eventually its sub-contractors). In addition, S&R also chose to purchase their other welding supplies from the Company showing once again that MagneGas2® is a unique differentiator and catalyst for growth in the Industrial Gas Sector. Josh Collins, Sr. Project Manager of S&R stated: "The demonstration clearly showed us that MagneGas should be our fuel of choice on this, and other, projects. The faster cutting speed and smaller heat affected zone, demonstrated safety attributes and its eco-friendly aspects won us over. We also realized that MagneGas could add dollars to our bottom line, due to the faster speed of the cut, increased productivity, less fuel required… all of which could result in a quicker, less costly completion date!"
