MagneGas Corporation (MagneGas or the company) (MNGA), a leading technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts renewable and waste liquids into MagneGas2® fuel, has announced that the successful results of its recent testing of its developmental wastewater sterilisation equipment have moved the company a step closer to entering the septic water treatment market.
In June and July, the company deployed its 50 KW mobile sterilisation system at a Florida septic wastewater treatment facility. Initial results of the processed samples, analysed by an independent laboratory, indicate significant reductions in pathogens. Additionally, these preliminary results are indicating reductions in nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. MagneGas will continue to test at this facility during the next few weeks and will be providing a final report to the waste treatment facility, based on the analysis of the independent laboratory, by the end of August.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection estimates that one third of Florida residents use septic systems for disposal of their wastewater. Septic waste is generally collected and treated by privately owned corporations. The company believes that the barriers to entering this market will be lower than the municipal government owned sewage treatment facilities.
Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas Corporation stated, "We are pleased with the progress our recent testing has shown. The company has been developing equipment to sell to waste processing facilities for some time. We are steadily moving closer to actively entering this market. There are significant challenges faced by the corporations retained to treat this waste and we believe MagneGas has a better alternative. To that end, we will continue to pursue this market through additional testing, collaboration and marketing."
