MagneGas Corporation (MagneGas) has filed a patent improvement application to the design of its electrodes, elements that are often critical to its efficient gasification of liquid wastes.

This latest definitive patent application is part of MagneGas’ effort to strengthen and broaden its intellectual property.

MagneGas counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based fuel. In this case the patent application is an improvement in the design of MagneGas electrodes which, in some cases, are critical to efficient gasification of some liquid wastes.

“As part of our product development process we tested completely new feedstocks which yielded two significant improvements to our electrode design,” stated Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas. “We believe these improvements provide a broadened ability to process liquids and liquid wastes.”

MagneGas currently sells its self-titled MagneGas® product into the metal working market as a replacement to acetylene, and is also selling equipment for the sterilisation of bio-contaminated liquid waste for various industrial and agricultural markets.

In addition, the company is developing a variety of ancillary uses for MagneGas® fuels utilising its high flame temperature for co-combustion of hydrocarbon fuels and other advanced applications.
