Agreement Signed with Indiana Farm for the Sterilization of Manure and Use of MagneGas®.
MagneGas® Corporation, a technology company that counts among its inventions a patented process that converts liquid waste into a hydrogen-based fuel, announced today it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding “MOU” with a large confidential hog farm in Indiana.
Established in 1996 the hog farm is on the leading edge of the pig industry with procedures in place to control disease and contamination resulting in a product of the highest quality. Raising over 40,000 pigs per year this farm has a minimum of 18,000 pigs on hand at any given time making it one of the largest in Indiana, Michigan and Ohio with future expansion planned. The hog farm will offer a safer sterilized pig manure to the surrounding agricultural community by using the MagneGas system while co-firing MagneGas® with propane or natural gas to reduce energy costs.
Following a successful demonstration, the hog farm has committed to buy a MagneGas sterilization system and will become an exclusive distributor for MagneGas products in the agricultural industry for Indiana, Ohio and Michigan. The hog farm will also be available as the MagneGas demonstration center for the agricultural sector that is expected to attract global interest in this new process.
“We are excited to do a live, 30 day demonstration at our facility. We want to sterilize manure waste making it easier for us to bring to the field and have a very high quality fertilizer that is nearly odorless. We see a huge market in not only the pig industry but other industries like chicken and cattle as well. We also want to maximize the gas bi-product to co-combust with either natural gas or propane to maximize the positive environmental effect and further reduce costs. We look forward to changing the way farming is currently done by implementing MagneGas® throughout the mid-west and ultimately the world. Our goal as farmers is to be good stewards of the land and to leave it a better place than we found it. We believe MagneGas® will help us do just that,” stated the owner.
“During my visit to the hog farm I was very impressed by the cleanliness and progressiveness of their facilities. They have clearly employed the latest farming methods and technologies which is lead by their vision that as technology improves so can procedures used in farming resulting in a better, safer and cleaner environment. We are looking forward to working with our new agricultural partners in the Midwest and beyond to provide a more sustainable agricultural product by transforming manure with the MagneGas® System," commented Ermanno Santilli, CEO MagneGas Corp.
