Moving towards reducing coal emissions

MagneGas Corp. continues to move forward with reducing coal emissions through the testing of its advanced co-combustion technology. The company has a patent process that converts liquid waste into MagneGas® fuel. It converts the coal fluegas into a fuel by igniting it using MagneGas2® and then uses this in a co-combustion environment to reduce emissions.

Preliminary internal testing has shown this testing has helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce a greater efficiency in burning coal. It is reported testing and validation further advancing with supervision from an established coal technology research centre.

"In America, China and around the world, greenhouse gas emissions are taking centre 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," commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO MagneGas Corp. "We are working closely with our Joint Venture partners in the US 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."
