  • 20-Jul-2012 01:21 EDT

MagneGas Corp., which converts liquid-based materials into hydrogen-based fuel, removing acetylene from the process, is supplying General Motors with its MagneGas fuel. GM is trialing the fuel in maintenance and metal-working activities at its Grand Blanc Weld & Tool Center in Flint, MI. MagneGas will ship its fuel cylinders from its production facility in Michigan. GM tested MagneGas, assessing its environmental, health, and safety impacts, and found that it cut cleaner, faster, and is more cost-effective than acetylene. GM is working with MagneGas to discuss possible future applications with potential to reduce its environmental impact.
