Visit at the Italian demonstration plant of MagneGas™ on February 7th and 8th, 2011
Here I had the opportunity, to see their Plasma Arc Through™ Refinery System at work.
I was most impressed with what I saw. They are converting liquid biomass of all kinds,
like sewage overflow or sludge into a gas, called MagneGas™. At this time, the MagneGas™ is mainly used as a technical gas for welding and other purposes. However, the technology
is highly potential also for additional important usages in our energy infrastructure.
If the electricity used in this process is coming from Renewable Energies, which is possible,
this can be called a renewable waste--to-energy process. I was most impressed.

This is a mobile installation; liquid biomass like Sewage, Sludge, Manure, Wasted Oils of all kinds; can be fed in
The MagneGas ™ process can be adjusted to the liquid biomass feedstock, which is available at customer`s site…
The test and demonstration installation in Italy is raising interest by European visitor groups from Industry, Politics and Science…
This is the heart of the unit: Here the patented Plasma Arc Flow™ Technology takes place, at two Electrodes inside the blue tubes with yellow fittings.
The equipment is easy to operate and to maintain, Alessandro Ciotta at work...
The start up time is rather short, after 15 minutes everything is running smoothly...
Patented Power Electronic Management to ensure optimum Arc operation at 10.000 °F (5.500° Celsius)…
The company MagneGas has it`s headquarter in Tarpon Springs, Florida, USA...
The electricity can be variable, also generated from Renewable Energies; fluctuations do not interrupt the process...
The equipment stays cool and can be touched at any time...
These are the original electrodes before they are used in the process...
The MagneGas™ is compressed and filled into bottles. The filing process is easily handled, as seen here
The result of the gasification is carefully monitored...
The MagneGas™, which is created and used here, reaches repeatable far better combustion greenhouse gases values than petrol and natural gas...
