TAMPA — MagneGas Corp. reports its Italian distributor, “Nuova MagneGas Italia” has signed a contract with the Italian National Alternative Energy Laboratory (ENEA) to perform various tests on MagneGas fuels.
The ENEA recently signed a contract with Nuova MagneGas Italia to test creating the gas from feedstock and certifying it for use in internal combustion engines. The agency is one of the top alternative energy and economic development agencies in Europe and approval of the gas is expected to make it much easier to sell the fuel in Europe.
Testing is scheduled to start in February and will take 180 days to complete.
“ENEA's United States equivalent would be the National Renewable Energy Laboratory of the Department of Energy, so this is a significant development for the validation of the MagneGas technology in Europe and worldwide,” Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas Corp., says in a press release.
The Tampa-based company produces MagneGas, a natural gas alternative and metal working fuel that can be created from liquid waste.
