Technology

Summary of the MagneGas® Plasma Arc Flow Technology:

MagneGas Corporation® is a waste to energy company that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen based fuel. The Company owns the patents to this revolutionary technology which gasifies or sterilizes a number of liquid wastes and produces a gaseous fuel known as MagneGas®.  MagneGas® is a cost competitive and clean burning fuel that is essentially interchangeable with Natural Gas, Propane and Acetylene and it can be co-combusted with existing hydrocarbon fuels. MagneGas also has significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions when compared to fossil fuel. The Magnegas® system occupies a small footprint and runs in a sealed, quiet and smoke free system.
 

MagneGas® Fuel Can be Used for:

  • Metal Cutting
  • Transportation Fuel
  • Co-Combustion with Fossil Fuels
  • Heating
  •   

    MagneGas® Recyclers Can Process:

  • Sewage / Sludge
  • Agricultural Waste
  • Leachates
  • Oil Based Liquids*
  • Industrial Waste Liquids*
  • *Certain Oil and Industrial Waste Liquids Require Further Testing, or Mixing with Water or other Liquids to Process.
     
    The patented technology is based on flowing the target liquid waste through our patented submerged electric arc system between two electrodes. The arc decomposes the liquid molecules into atoms as it forms a plasma around the tips of the electrodes at about 10,000°F / 5,500 C. MagneGas® is created as the decomposed atoms rise to the surface and naturally forms into a gas.

    MagneGas® is a cost competitive synthetic gas made from many liquid wastes such as sewage, sludge, animal manure, glycerin, used antifreeze, some oil based liquids and waste water.

    Sterilization Recycler

    The post combustion exhaust from MagneGas® has been certified by an automotive laboratory accredited with the EPA to surpass all EPA requirements without a catalytic converter, and releases more oxygen when it burns than other fuels, making it dramatically cleaner than gasoline, diesel, and natural gas.
    The MagneGas Recyclers have two operating modes:

    GASIFICATION MODE is suitable to gasify target liquids for the maximum conversion of liquid to fuel and is most suitable for oily or hazardous wastes that require elimination. The waste is converted into MagneGas and carbon precipitates. In this mode the liquid is gasified.

    STERILIZATION MODE is intended to sterilize target liquid wastes such as sewage, agricultural wastes, leachates, or any effluent where eliminating bacteriological activity is beneficial to convert the waste liquid into a fertilizer or Class A waste. This results in the production of MagneGas, and the same quantity of sterilized liquid, in this mode the liquid is retained but completely sterilized.

    Certification of MagneGas Exhaust:

    Magnegas® fuel was shown by EPA accredited laboratory analysis results to be suitable for use as automotive fuel without catalytic converters while surpassing all current EPA requirements for combustion exhaust emissions, as shown below.

    The data was obtained using a Honda Civic adapted to run on natural gas and used with MagneGas without any change in timing and stochiometric ratio. The data on gasoline were obtained via the use of an identical Honda Civic running on gasoline. All data were obtained using the complex EPA routine simulating various city and mountain driving conditions.

    The quality of MagneGas® exhaust is dramatically better than that of natural gas and gasoline. MagneGas® exhaust is much lower than EPA requirements; has about 50% less green gases (CO2) than gasoline exhaust; and contains 9% to 12% oxygen. Based on these measurements, it is postulated that MagneGas fuel can be used as an additive to fossil fuels to improve their exhaust characteristics.
