TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 announced that it continues the testing of its advanced co-combustion technology to reduce coal emissions.
One week after President Obama again proclaimed greenhouse gas emissions to be, "The biggest threat to America's future," MagneGas Corporation announces it is continuing of its MagneGas2® fuel being used in a co-combustion environment. Initial internal testing demonstrated a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a greater efficiency in burning coal. Testing and validation is now in advanced stages with oversight from a well-respected coal technology research center that is associated with one of the nation's largest Utility companies.
Most experts agree that for the foreseeable future, coal, which produces upwards of 46 percent of the world's electrical power at approximately 7,000 coal fired power plants, will remain a strategically important resource for both power and jobs around the world. However, the industry has been plagued by the fact that burning coal produces harmful emissions and the release of vast quantities of CO2, a powerful greenhouse gas. At the same time, coal has proven to also be an extremely inefficient source of energy. While legacy technologies deal with emissions from coal fired power plants using complex pollution control systems, MagneGas' new technology transforms the coal flue gas or smoke into a fuel by igniting it using MagneGas2® which itself is produced from renewable sources of liquid waste.
"In America, China and around the world greenhouse gas emissions are taking center stage and the need to reconcile a plentiful resource such as coal with the need to protect the environment is creating a major debate. Testing has consistently demonstrated that using MagneGas2® in a co-combustion environment will produce a significant reduction in emissions and could make the abundance of coal as a usable resource more acceptable again," said Ermanno Santilli, CEO, MagneGas Corporation. "We are working closely with our Joint Venture partners in the U.S. and Australia to complete the pilot phase and we anticipate the conclusion of our testing by year's end. We fully expect the results to continue to be significant in terms of coal burning efficiency, reduction of greenhouse gases and overall business potential for MagneGas."
