TAMPA, FL, Nov. 14, 2008 -- MagneGas Corporation, a producer of a natural gas alternative and metal cutting fuel made from liquid waste, announced that it has received a request from the city of Dunedin, Florida, to conduct on site plant scale testing to convert municipal bio-solids into fuel.
The municipality acknowledged in its request that, "The City of Dunedin has completed several pilot tests with the MagneGas Plasma Arc Flow Refinery. These tests have been promising and as a result, the City of Dunedin is interested in entering negotiations with MagneGas Corporation to assemble equipment and to conduct plant scale testing to confirm the merits of the Plasma Arc Recycler as an element of municipal biosolids management."
A video archive is available on the MagneGas Website for a previous test at the City of Dunedin. This test successfully converted city sludge to "MagneGas" fuel.

Ken Stidham, Director of Wastewater comments in the video, "Their process sterilizes the sludge and creates a usable bi-product so this is attractive to us."
CEO and Chairman Dr. Ruggero Santilli states, "We have successfully demonstrated that sludge can be converted into clean burning fuel, now we will demonstrate the efficacy of the process on a much larger scale. We believe this opportunity will allow us to partner with other city, state and governmental agencies."
MagneGas is a clean burning natural gas alternative made from liquid waste. The patented Plasma Arc Flow™ system gasifies liquid waste such as sewage, sludge, manure and certain industrial and oil based liquid wastes. The Plasma Arc Flow refinery uses a patented electrical process to decompose the liquid waste molecules into atoms, and the atoms are then recombined into MagneGas. The system creates this hydrogen based natural gas alternative, which can power bi-fuel cars running on natural gas, cooking grills, industrial equipment, and homes. It can also be used as metal cutting and welding fuel.
