MagneGas Announces Second USDA Demonstration Day
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MagneGas Applied Technology Solutions, Inc. ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MNGA), a leading clean technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, announced today that it is holding its second United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded sterilization demonstration day on Tuesday, October 23rd. MagneGas will conduct its second Demonstration Day of the MagneGas 50 KW sterilization unit under the USDA Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) at the Lake Branch Dairy Farm located outside of Bowling Green, FL.
MagneGas is currently nearing completion of Phase 2 testing of the 4-phase USDA CIG project. The demonstration will include a tour of the system, a presentation on the highlights of the changes made to the system based on Phase 1 lessons learned, and present preliminary results and analysis of the Phase 2 testing.
“Our USDA grant-funded sterilization project is making excellent progress,” commented Ermanno Santilli, Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas. “We have learned a great deal from our initial phase of our project, and we leveraged our findings to refine our scope of work in Phase II.”
Santilli continued, “We are very excited to release our findings on our demonstrated impact on high levels of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), also known as the NPK value, which is closely linked to the life threatening blue green algae blooms. We are also looking forward to releasing data on our sterilization efficacy for animal waste solids, as we see this as a potentially scalable path to selling the solids into the global fertilizer industry.”
