TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas" or the "Company") (OTCBB: MNGA), the developer of a technology that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based metal working fuel and natural gas alternative, announced today that new customer OneSteel Ltd. (ASX: OST) has issued its first order for MagneGas fuel to be used at one of its twelve steel recycling centers in the U.S. MagneGas™ will be used as a cost effective replacement for acetylene and propane in OneSteel Ltd.'s recycling operation.
OneSteel Ltd., one of the largest steel companies in the world, with over $7 Billion in revenue, uses large quantities of acetylene and propane in its steel recycling operations worldwide. The Company intends to start switching its six Florida locations from acetylene and propane to MagneGas,™ beginning with the first location in Tampa, FL, this week. A timetable for the rollout of MagneGas ™ to OneSteel's U.S. locations outside of Florida is currently under negotiation.
"Part of OneSteel's Corporate Vision is to be an environmentally responsible Company and this was what initially led us to find MagneGas," commented Steve Ryan, General Manager of OneSteel Ltd.'s U.S. operations. "Not only is MagneGas ™ cost competitive, it is a greener alternative than what we are currently using for metal working and it has exceeded our expectations in terms of its metal cutting performance.. Our commitment to the environment made the decision to switch to MagneGas the right choice for us."
"This is a major step forward for MagneGas as we continue to build out our growth strategy by expanding our footprint throughout the metal working market," stated Scott Wainwright, President of MagneGas. "We are confident that through the superior performance of MagneGas ™ as well as our strategic pricing model, MagneGas will continue to penetrate the metal working market by providing value-added solutions to customers such as OneSteel."To be added to the MagneGas investor email list, please email email@example.com with MNGA in the subject line.
