MagneGas Ships Refinery To RJ Torching

TAMPA, Fla. — MagneGas Corp., the developer of technology to turn liquid waste into a natural gas alternative, said Monday that it has shipped a 150-kilowatt waste refinery to Flint-based RJ Torching Inc., one of the largest scrap and metal processors in Michigan.

In June, MagneGas entered into an agreement with RJ Torching to install a refinery on site and produce MagneGas fuel for RJ’s metal working needs.  RJ Torching, an environmentally conscious recycler and inventor of the Sparcs metal-cutting exhaust gas collection system (, agreed to purchase all of their metal-cutting gas needs exclusively MagneGas after extensive testing.

“As we continue to execute on our growth strategy, we are excited to deliver the MagneGas refinery and embark on the next phase of our relationship with RJ Torching,” said MagneGas CEO Ermanno Santilli. “Our refineries are small, mobile and easy to install, allowing our customers a painless and cost-effective way to benefit from the superior metal-cutting capabilities offered by our MagneGas fuel. After spending much of 2012 educating the marketplace on the benefits of our product, we look forward to ramping up production of our refineries.”
