Our Company

We are an alternative energy company that creates and produces hydrogen-based alternative fuel through the gasification of liquid waste. We have developed a process which transforms various types of liquid waste through a proprietary plasma arc machine. The result of the process is to carbonize the waste for normal disposal. A byproduct of this process is to produce an alternative to natural gas currently sold in the metalworking market. We produce gas bottled in cylinders for the purpose of distribution to the metalworking market as an alternative to acetylene. Additionally, we market, for sale or licensure, our proprietary plasma arc technology (the “Plasma Arc Flow” or “Plasma Arc Flow System”). Through the course of our business development, we have established a retail and wholesale platform to sell our fuel for use in the metalworking and manufacturing industries. In 2010, we recognized our initial sale of a Plasma Arc Flow unit and are continuing efforts to sell or lease additional equipment to end users. We reported a net loss of $2,937,062 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 as compared to a net income of $23,600 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 and a net loss of $694,362 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to a net loss of $215,413 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. We currently use approximately $250,000 per month to fund our operations.
 
Our Industry
 
We focus our efforts on producing and selling fuel and equipment for the metalworking fuel market. This market is currently dominated by acetylene. Acetylene is a gas that is considered toxic, emits soot when it burns and can be volatile. In recent months, several acetylene production plants have exploded, causing a shortage of acetylene and raising prices. MagneGasTM fuel (“MagneGas”) on the other hand, emits oxygen when it burns and independent users have rated MagneGas as a cleaner alternative to acetylene.
 
According to a recent report on the global market for metalworking gasses by the Freedonia Group, it was reported that “demand for industrial gases in metal welding and fabrication markets is projected to increase 8.6 percent per year to $5.6 billion in 2014. Gains will be driven primarily by expanding industrial production and construction activity. As a result, the greatest opportunities for growth will emerge in China, India and other developing economies, where industrialization is proceeding most rapidly and where further infrastructural development is key to sustained economic growth. Western Europe, North America and Japan will remain the largest consumers of industrial gases for welding and fabrication markets, although growth opportunities will not equal those of developing economies.”
 
Our Competitive Strengths
 
Patented, sustainable, disruptive technology and fuel source – Our patented Plasma Arc Flow System recycles liquid waste through a patented process, producing a hydrogen-based fuel called MagneGas, which the we believe can become, among other things, a replacement for acetylene.
 
World class technology team We are led by our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientist Dr. Santilli, who has been nominated for Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry. He is a former professor at both Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has received numerous Department of Energy research grants for the development of chemically unique clean fuel.  Dr. Santilli will retire as Chief Executive Officer of our Company effective June 15, 2012, but will remain as Chairman of our board of directors and as an employee of the Company as Chief Scientist.
 
Immediate commercial applications – Our MagneGas and Plasma Flow Arc technology are now both selling in the United States and globally. We expect our disruptive technology to displace current fuel gases such as acetylene.
 
Multiple revenue channels – We earn revenue from both clean fuel sales (domestic) and big-ticket sales of equipment (international).
 
Rapid growth potential – We expect to grow revenue through rapid growth in production and sales of MagneGas in the acetylene and natural gas markets, as well as through our international licensing agreement in China.
 
 
Our Growth Strategies
 
Our current focus is to continue the penetration achieved to date by MagneGas, primarily as an alternative for acetylene, into the global market for metalworking and fabrication gasses, a market which is projected to grow more than 8% annually to $5.6 billion by 2014. 

Our top priority is to grow sales of MagneGas primarily through an expanding network of established industrial gas distributors and strategic customers. We have distributors in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida. We also have a retail operation in Florida selling fuel directly to end users. We have obtained approval from the Department of Transportation to deliver fuel in Florida and currently have several customers purchasing fuel directly.
 
Even at current, early stage, modest production rates, we believe we can sell MagneGas for 20% to 30% less than acetylene. We project that this economic advantage over acetylene will become greater as production scales up to meet the demand that is already in the pipeline.
 
And while MagneGas costs are expected to decrease with scaling, some welding industry participants project that the cost of acetylene will rise due to the increasing costs of the calcium carbide from which acetylene is derived. Furthermore, increasingly stringent health and safety regulations will further constrain the production and use of acetylene. In short, we believe the negative economic and regulatory forces acting on acetylene contribute to the beneficial conditions and timing for the adoption of MagneGas as a substitute product.
 
We plan to expand through the use of direct marketing, exhibiting at trade events and networking opportunities. We plan to expand retail operations in Florida by leveraging existing customers for industry introductions. In the remainder of the United States, we plan to install filling stations in various geographically favorable locations and sell fuel to existing welding fuel distributors for quicker market penetration. In countries outside of the United States, we plan to conduct web-based marketing campaigns and attend industry events to attract potential equipment buyers. Those buyers are expected to purchase or lease equipment from us to produce fuel and sell that fuel to market while paying a royalty to us.
 
Our Products
 
We currently have two products: MagneGas and the machines that produce that gas known as Plasma Arc Flow refineries.
 
Fuel
 
We currently produce MagneGas for the metalworking market from a feedstock of virgin ethylene glycol (automotive anti-freeze), which is purchased in bulk from outside suppliers. This is a temporary measure while we secure the permits required to process and handle post-consumer waste feedstock such as ethylene glycol and eventually municipal streams such as sewage and sludge.
 
MagneGas is hydrogen-based and can be used to replace natural gas. It is currently sold as a replacement for acetylene in the metalworking market.
 
MagneGas is comprised of approximately 65% hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and other trace gases. It is stored in hydrogen cylinders which are then sold to market. We believe we can sell the cylinders at a 20% to 30% lower price than acetylene.
 
Equipment
 
The Plasma Arc Flow System can gasify many forms of liquid waste such as ethylene glycol, sewage and sludge.
 
Plasma Arc Flow refineries have been configured in various sizes ranging from 50kw to 500kw depending on the application. Plasma Arc Flow refineries range in price from $1 million to $3 million. A 200kw refinery was sold in 2010 to a customer in China for $1.855 Million.
 
The patented Plasma Arc Flow System is based on the flow of a carbon-rich, liquid feedstock through an electric arc between two electrodes submerged in the feedstock. The arc decomposes the liquid molecules into atoms and forms an ultra-high temperature plasma around the tips of the electrodes which sterilizes any waste matter. The Plasma Arc Flow System also controls the formation of MagneGas, a hydrogen-rich fuel, which bubbles to the surface of the refining vessel for easy collection and subsequent compression. In this way, liquid waste streams or oils are converted into MagneGas with minimal by-products such as sterilized water (if using sewage as feedstock) and only a small amount of carbonaceous precipitates or other inert solids which are strained out for periodic removal and disposal.

An investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below, together with all of the other information included in this prospectus, before making an investment decision. If any of the following risks actually occurs, our business, financial condition or results of operations could suffer. In that case, the trading price of our shares of common stock could decline, and you may lose all or part of your investment. You should read the section entitled “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” below for a discussion of what types of statements are forward-looking statements, as well as the significance of such statements in the context of this prospectus.
 
Risks Relating to the Company’s Business
 
We have a limited operating history and there can be no assurance that we can achieve or maintain profitability.
 
We have a limited operating history that can be used to evaluate us, and the likelihood of our success must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays that we may encounter because we are a small business. As a result, we may not be profitable and we may not be able to generate sufficient revenue to develop as we have planned.
 
Our ability to achieve and maintain profitability and positive cash flow will be dependent upon:
 
management’s ability to maintain the technology and skills necessary for our fuel conversion services;
our ability to keep abreast of the changes by the government agencies and law particularly in the areas of intellectual property and environmental regulation;
our ability to attract customers who require the products and services we offer;
our ability to generate revenues through the sale of our products and services to potential clients; and
our ability to manage the logistics and operations of the Company and the distribution of our products and services.
 
We have had operating losses since formation and expect to incur net losses for the near term.
 
We reported a net income of $23,600 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 and a net loss of $2,907,062 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. We also reported a net loss of $694,362 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to a net loss of $215,413 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  We anticipate that we will lose money in the near term and we may not be able to achieve profitable operations. In order to achieve profitable operations we need to secure sales of fuel and Plasma Arc Flow System. The majority of our revenue in 2010 was the result of a one-time sale of a refinery to our partner in China for the Municipal Wastewater market. However, since that time, we determined that better opportunities exist in the metalworking market to generate revenue in the immediate term. As a result, we have shifted our focus from selling refineries for sewage treatment to generating recurring revenue in metalworking fuel sales. This has resulted in a drop in revenue from 2010 to 2011 as we ramp up sales in this new market. We cannot be certain that our business will be successful or that we will generate significant revenues and become profitable.
 
The growth of our business depends upon the development and successful commercial acceptance of our products.
 
We depend upon a variety of factors to ensure that our MagneGas and Plasma Arc Flow System are successfully commercialized, including timely and efficient completion of design and development, implementation of manufacturing processes, and effective sales, marketing, and customer service. Because of the complexity of our products, significant delays may occur between development, introduction to the market and volume production phases.
 
The development and commercialization of MagneGas and Plasma Arc Flow System involves many difficulties, including:
 
retention and hiring of appropriate operational, research and development personnel;
determination of the products’ technical specifications;
successful completion of the development process;
successful marketing of MagneGas and Plasma Arc Flow System and achieving customer acceptance;
managing inventory levels, logistics and operations; and
additional customer service and warranty costs associated with supporting product modifications and/or subsequent potential field upgrades.

We must expend significant financial and management resources to develop and market our MagneGas and Plasma Arc Flow System. We cannot assure that we will receive meaningful revenue from these investments. If we are unable to continue to successfully develop or modify our products in response to customer requirements or technological changes, or our products are not commercially successful, our business may be harmed.
 
The possibility of a global financial crisis may significantly impact our business and financial condition and our ability to attract customers to our relatively new technology for the foreseeable future.
 
The turmoil in the global financial system may adversely impact our ability to raise capital, invest in the development and refinement of our technology and to successfully market it to new customers. We may face increasing challenges if conditions in the financial markets do not improve over time. Our ability to access the capital markets may be restricted at a time when we would like, or need, to raise financing, which could have a material negative impact on our flexibility to react to changing economic and business conditions. The economic situation could have a material negative impact on our ability to attract new customers willing to try our alternative fuel products or purchase our technology.
 
 
Failure to comply with government regulations will severely limit our sales opportunities and future revenue.
 
Failure to obtain operating permits, or otherwise to comply with federal and state regulatory and environmental requirements, could affect our abilities to market and sell MagneGas and the Plasma Arc Flow System and could have a material adverse affect on our business and operations.
 
We and our customers may be required to comply with a number of federal, state and local laws and regulations in the areas of safety, health and environmental controls. In as much as we intend to market the Plasma Arc Flow System internationally, we will be required to comply with laws and regulations and, when applicable, obtain permits in those other countries.
 
We cannot be certain that we will be able to obtain or maintain, required permits and approvals, that new or more stringent environmental regulations will not be enacted or that if they are, that we will be able to meet the stricter standards.
 
Our technology is unproven on a large-scale industrial basis and could fail to perform in an industrial production environment.
 
The Plasma Arc Flow System has never been utilized on a large-scale industrial basis. All of the tests that we have conducted to date with respect to our technology have been performed on limited quantities of liquid waste, and we cannot assure you that the same or similar results could be obtained on a large-scale industrial basis. We cannot predict all of the difficulties that may arise when the technology is utilized on a large-scale industrial basis. In addition, our technology has never operated at a volume level required to be profitable. As our product is an alternative to acetylene, the unstable price of acetylene will impact our ability to become profitable and to sell cost competitive fuel. It is possible that the technology may require further research, development, design and testing prior to implementation of a larger-scale commercial application. Accordingly, we cannot assure you that this technology will perform successfully on a large-scale commercial basis, that it will be profitable to us or that our MagneGas will be cost competitive in the market.
 
Our future success is dependent, in part, on the performance and continued service of Scott Wainwright, Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli, and other key personnel. Without their continued service, we may be forced to interrupt our operations.

We are presently dependent to a great extent upon the experience, abilities and continued services of Scott Wainwright, our President and Dr. Ruggero Maria Santilli, currently our Chief Executive Officer and as of June 15, 2012, our Chief Scientist. Scott Wainwright has developed strategic relationships in our industry that are critical to our success and has obtained knowledge of our product that will take substantial time to replace. Dr. Santilli is the inventor of the technology and the chief scientist at our Company and as such his knowledge of the intellectual property associated with the development and implementation of our technology is critical to our success. The loss of either of their services would delay our business operations substantially.
 
Our related party transactions may cause conflicts of interests that may adversely affect our business.
 
Our intellectual property was purchased through a related party transaction with Hyfuels, Inc, who through the transaction became a stockholder of our Company. We currently lease our building through a related party transaction with a company wholly owned by Dr. and his spouse and director of our Company, Carla Santilli. We own a 20% interest in MagneGas Europe, a company whose Chief Executive Officer and major stockholder is Ermanno Santilli, our Executive Vice President of International Relations and the son of Dr. Santilli. In addition, Dr. Santilli has personally contributed a small refinery for our use and we have received various small notes and loans from related parties, all of which have been paid in full. As of June 15, 2012, Ermanno Santilli will succeed Dr. Santilli as Chief Executive Officer of our Company and will no longer serve as Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas Europe.
 
We believe that these transactions and agreements that we have entered into with these affiliates are on terms that are at least as favorable as could reasonably have been obtained at such time from third parties. However, these relationships could create, or appear to create, potential conflicts of interest when our board of directors is faced with decisions that could have different implications for us and these affiliates. The appearance of conflicts, even if such conflicts do not materialize, might adversely affect the public’s perception of us, as well as our relationship with other companies and our ability to enter into new relationships in the future, which could have a material adverse effect on our ability to raise capital or to do business.
 
 
The success of our business depends, in part, upon proprietary technologies and information which may be difficult to protect and may be perceived to infringe on the intellectual property rights of third parties.
 
We believe that the identification, acquisition and development of proprietary technologies are key drivers of our business. Our success depends, in part, on our ability to obtain patents, maintain the secrecy of our proprietary technology and information, and operate without infringing on the proprietary rights of third parties. We cannot assure you that the patents of others will not have an adverse effect on our ability to conduct our business, that the patents that provide us with competitive advantages will not be challenged by third parties, that we will develop additional proprietary technology that is patentable or that any patents issued to us will provide us with competitive advantages. Further, we cannot assure you that others will not independently develop similar or superior technologies, duplicate elements of our biomass technology or design around it.

In order to successfully commercialize our proprietary technologies, it is possible that we may need to acquire licenses to use, or to contest the validity of, issued or pending patents. We cannot assure you that any license acquired under such patents would be made available to us on acceptable terms, if at all, or that we would prevail in any such contest. In addition, we could incur substantial costs in defending ourselves in suits brought against us for alleged infringement of another party's patents or in defending the validity or enforceability of our patents, or in bringing patent infringement suits against other parties based on our patents.
 
In addition to the protection afforded by patents, we also rely on trade secrets, proprietary know-how and technology that we seek to protect, in part, by confidentiality agreements with our prospective joint venture partners, employees and consultants. We cannot assure you that these agreements will not be breached, that we will have adequate remedies for any such breach, or that our trade secrets and proprietary know-how will not otherwise become known or be independently discovered by others.
 
We have the potential risk of product liability which may subject us to litigation and related costs.
 
Our Plasma Arc Flow System may be utilized in a variety of industrial and other settings, and may be used to handle materials resulting from the user's generation of liquid waste and the creation of a compressed hydrogen based fuel for distribution to end customers. The equipment, cylinders and gas will therefore be subject to risks of breakdowns and malfunctions. There is also inherent risk in the compression, transportation and use of MagneGas. It is possible that claims for personal injury and business losses arising out of these risks, breakdowns and malfunctions will occur. Our insurance may be insufficient to provide coverage against all claims, and claims may be made against us even if covered by our insurance policy for amounts substantially in excess of applicable policy limits. Such an event could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
Because we are smaller and have fewer financial and other resources than many alternative fuel companies, we may not be able to successfully compete in the very competitive alternative fuel industry.
 
Fuel is a commodity. There is significant competition among existing alternative fuel producers. Our business faces competition from a number of producers that can produce significantly greater volumes of fuel than we can or expect to produce, producers that can produce a wider range of fuel products than we can, and producers that have the financial and other resources that would enable them to expand their production rapidly if they chose to. These producers may be able to achieve substantial economies of scale and scope, thereby substantially reducing their fixed production costs and their marginal productions costs. If these producers are able to substantially reduce their marginal production costs, the market price of fuel may decline and we may be not be able to produce biogas at a cost that allows us to compete economically. Even if we are able to operate profitably, these other producers may be substantially more profitable than us, which may make it more difficult for us to raise any financing necessary for us to achieve our business plan and may have a materially adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.
 
Costs of compliance with burdensome or changing environmental and operational safety regulations could cause our focus to be diverted away from our business and our results of operations may suffer.
 
Liquid waste disposal and fuel production involves the discharge of potential contaminants into the water and air and is subject to various regulatory and safety requirements. As a result, we are subject to complicated environmental regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and regulations and permitting requirements of the various states. These regulations are subject to change and such changes may require additional capital expenditures or increased operating costs. Consequently, considerable resources may be required to comply with future environmental regulations. In addition, our production plants could be subject to environmental nuisance or related claims by employees, property owners or residents near the plants arising from air or water discharges. Environmental and public nuisance claims, or tort claims based on emissions, or increased environmental compliance costs resulting therefrom could significantly increase our operating costs.

As MagneGas is new to the metalworking market, it may take time for the industry to adapt to it. In addition, the economy may adversely impact consumption of fuel in the metalworking market making it more difficult for us to sell our product.
 
MagneGas is a replacement for acetylene for the metalworking market. As this is a new product in the industry, it may take time for end users to consider changing from acetylene to MagneGas and as such this may adversely impact our sales. In addition, consumption for fuel in the metalworking market is highly dependent on the economic conditions of the manufacturing industry and as such adverse conditions in the economy may also negatively impact our ability to sell our fuel to market.
 
 
Mergers or other strategic transactions involving our competitors could weaken our competitive position, which could harm our operating results.

There is significant competition among existing alternative fuel producers.  Some of our competitors may enter into new alliances with each other or may establish or strengthen cooperative relationships with systems integrators, third-party consulting firms or other parties. Any such consolidation, acquisition, alliance or cooperative relationship could lead to pricing pressure and our loss of market share and could result in a competitor with greater financial, technical, marketing, service and other resources, all of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.

Because our long-term plan depends, in part, on our ability to expand the sales of our solutions to customers located outside of the United States, our business will be susceptible to risks associated with international operations.
 
We have limited experience operating in foreign jurisdictions. We continue to explore opportunities for joint ventures internationally.  Our inexperience in operating our business outside of North America increases the risk that our current and any future international expansion efforts will not be successful. Conducting international operations subjects us to new risks that, generally, we have not faced in the United States, including:

 
•  
fluctuations in currency exchange rates;
 
•  
unexpected changes in foreign regulatory requirements;
 
•  
longer accounts receivable payment cycles and difficulties in collecting accounts receivable;
 
•  
difficulties in managing and staffing international operations;
 
•  
potentially adverse tax consequences, including the complexities of foreign value added tax systems and restrictions on the repatriation of earnings;
 
•  
localization of our solutions, including translation into foreign languages and associated expenses;
 
•  
the burdens of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws and different legal standards, including laws and regulations related to privacy;
 
•  
increased financial accounting and reporting burdens and complexities;
 
•  
political, social and economic instability abroad, terrorist attacks and security concerns in general; and
 
•  
reduced or varied protection for intellectual property rights in some countries.

Risks Related to our Common Stock:
 
Our common stock is quoted only on the OTCBB, which may have an unfavorable impact on our stock price and liquidity.
 
Our common stock is quoted on the OTCBB. The OTCBB is a significantly more limited market than the New York Stock Exchange or the NASDAQ Stock Market. The quotation of our shares on the OTCBB may result in a less liquid market available for existing and potential stockholders to trade shares of our common stock, could depress the trading price of our common stock and could have a long-term adverse impact on our ability to raise capital in the future.
 
Although we intend to apply to list our shares of common stock on the NYSE MKT (formerly NYSE Amex), there can be no assurance that our application will be approved and there can be no assurance that there will be an active market for our shares of common stock either now or in the future. Market liquidity will depend on the perception of our operating business and any steps that our management might take to bring us to the awareness of investors. There can be no assurance given that there will be any awareness generated. Consequently, investors may not be able to liquidate their investment or liquidate it at a price that reflects the value of the business. As a result holders of our securities may not find purchasers for our securities should they to desire to sell them. Consequently, our securities should be purchased only by investors having no need for liquidity in their investment and who can hold our securities for an indefinite period of time.
 
 
The market price for our common shares is particularly volatile given our status as a relatively unknown company with a small and thinly traded public float, limited operating history and lack of profits, which could lead to wide fluctuations in our share price. You may be unable to sell your common shares at or above your purchase price, which may result in substantial losses to you.
 
The market for our common shares is characterized by significant price volatility when compared to the shares of larger, more established companies that trade on a national securities exchange and have large public floats, and we expect that our share price will continue to be more volatile than the shares of such larger, more established companies for the indefinite future. The volatility in our share price is attributable to a number of factors. First, as noted above, our common shares are, compared to the shares of such larger, more established companies, sporadically and thinly traded. Even if our application to list our common stock on the NYSE MKT is approved, there is no assurance that there would be an increase in the trading volume of our common stock. As a consequence, the trading of relatively small quantities of shares by our shareholders may disproportionately influence the price of those shares in either direction. The price for our shares could, for example, decline precipitously in the event that a large number of our common shares are sold on the market without commensurate demand. Secondly, we are a speculative or “risky” investment due to our limited operating history, lack of profits to date, and uncertainty of future market acceptance for our potential products. As a consequence of this enhanced risk, more risk-adverse investors may, under the fear of losing all or most of their investment in the event of negative news or lack of progress, be more inclined to sell their shares on the market more quickly and at greater discounts than would be the case with the stock of a larger, more established company that trades on a national securities exchange and has a large public float. Many of these factors are beyond our control and may decrease the market price of our common shares, regardless of our operating performance.
 
Future sales of our common stock in the public market by management or our large stockholders could lower our stock price.
 
Our largest stockholders (each of whom has a representative on our board of directors or is on the board of directors themselves), together with the other members of our board of directors and our executive officers, collectively beneficially own 54.6% of our outstanding common stock. If our officers, directors and current stockholders sell, or indicate intent to sell, substantial amounts of our common stock in the public market, the trading price of our common stock may decline significantly. Additionally, 96,321,001 shares of our common stock issued to our officers, directors and 10% shareholders that will be outstanding immediately after completion of this offering will become eligible for sale in the public markets from time to time, subject to restrictions under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”) following the expiration of lock-up agreements entered into for the benefit of the underwriters by the holders of the common stock, including our directors and executive officers.

Our shares of common stock are very thinly traded, and the price may not reflect our value and there can be no assurance that there will be an active market for our shares of common stock now or in the future.
 
Although our common stock is quoted on the OTCBB, our shares of common stock are very thinly traded, and the price of our common stock, if traded, may not reflect our value. There can be no assurance that there will be an active market for our shares of common stock either now or in the future. Market liquidity will depend on the perception of our operating business and any steps that our management might take to bring us to the awareness of investors. There can be no assurance given that there will be any awareness generated. Consequently, investors may not be able to liquidate their investment or liquidate it at a price that reflects the value of the business. As a result holders of our securities may not find purchasers our securities should they to sell securities held by them. Consequently, our securities should be purchased only by investors having no need for liquidity in their investment and who can hold our securities for an indefinite period of time. 
 
If a more active market should develop, the price of our shares of common stock may be highly volatile. Because there may be a low price for our shares of common stock, many brokerage firms may not be willing to effect transactions in our securities. Even if an investor finds a broker willing to effect a transaction in the shares of our common stock, the combination of brokerage commissions, transfer fees, taxes, if any, and any other selling costs may exceed the selling price. Further, many lending institutions will not permit the use of such shares of common stock as collateral for any loans.
 
We intend to list our common stock on NYSE MKT in conjunction with this offering, however, there can be no guarantee that such listing shall be achieved at any time.
 
The members of our board of directors, their affiliates and our executive officers, as stockholders, control our Company.
 
Our largest stockholders (each of whom has a representative on our board of directors or is on the board of directors themselves) together with the other members of our board of directors and our executive officers, as stockholders, collectively beneficially own 58.4% of our outstanding common stock. As a result of this ownership, they have the ability to significantly influence all matters requiring approval by stockholders of our Company, including the election of directors. In particular, Dr. Santilli, Chairman of the board of directors, beneficially owns 38.5% of our outstanding common stock and Allen Feng, a director of our Company, beneficially owns 12.5% of our outstanding common stock. As a result, Messrs. Santilli and Feng beneficially own an aggregate of 50.8% of our outstanding stock and have the ability to significantly influence all matters requiring approval by stockholders of our Company. In addition to ownership of our common stock, Dr. Santilli and his spouse Carla Santilli beneficially own 100% of our outstanding 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock, which entitles Dr. Santilli and Carla Santilli to voting rights in the aggregate of 100,000,000,000 votes.  This concentration of ownership also may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control of our Company that may be favored by other stockholders. This could prevent transactions in which stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares over current market prices.
 
 
If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or reports about us, or publish negative reports about our business, our share price could decline.
 
Securities analysts currently do not cover our common stock and may not do so in the future. Our lack of analyst coverage might depress the price of our common stock and result in limited trading volume. If we do receive analyst coverage in the future, any negative reports published by such analysts could have similar effects.
 
Future issuance of our common stock could dilute the interests of existing stockholders.
 
We may issue additional shares of our common stock in the future. The issuance of a substantial amount of common stock could have the effect of substantially diluting the interests of our current stockholders. In addition, the sale of a substantial amount of common stock in the public market, either in the initial issuance or in a subsequent resale by the target company in an acquisition which received such common stock as consideration or by investors who acquired such common stock in a private placement could have an adverse affect on the market price of our common stock.
 
The application of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s “penny stock” rules to our common stock could limit trading activity in the market, and our stockholders may find it more difficult to sell their stock.
 
Our common stock is currently trading at less than $5.00 per share and is therefore subject to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) penny stock rules. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00. Penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The broker-dealer must also make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity, if any, in the secondary market for a security that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. The additional burdens imposed upon broker-dealers by such requirements may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in our securities, which could severely limit their market price and liquidity of our securities. These requirements may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and may affect your ability to resell our common stock.
 
We do not intend to pay dividends for the foreseeable future, and you must rely on increases in the market prices of our common stock for returns on your investment.
 
For the foreseeable future, we intend to retain any earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business, and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock. Accordingly, investors must be prepared to rely on sales of their common stock after price appreciation to earn an investment return, which may never occur. Investors seeking cash dividends should not purchase our common stock. Any determination to pay dividends in the future will be made at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend on our results of operations, financial condition, contractual restrictions, restrictions imposed by applicable law and other factors our board of directors deems relevant.
 
We will have broad discretion over the use of the net proceeds from this offering and may not use them effectively.
 
Our management will have broad discretion to use the net proceeds of this offering for a variety of purposes, including, further development of our products and operations, working capital and general corporate purposes. We may spend or invest these proceeds in a way with which our stockholders disagree. Failure by our management to effectively use these funds could harm our business and financial condition. Until the net proceeds are used, they may be placed in investments that do not yield a favorable return to our investors, do not produce significant income or lose value.
 
Our certificate of incorporation designates the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware as the sole and exclusive forum for certain litigation that may be initiated by our stockholders, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with the Company.
 
Our certificate of incorporation provides that, unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware will be the sole and exclusive forum for (i) any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf, (ii) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any of our directors, officers or other employees or our stockholders, (iii) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the Delaware General Corporation Law (“DGCL”), or (iv) any other action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine. Any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring any interest in shares of our capital stock shall be deemed to have notice of and to have consented to the provisions described above. This forum selection provision may limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a judicial forum that they find favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers or other employees or stockholders.
 
 
Our certificate of incorporation, bylaws and the Delaware General Corporation Law may delay or deter a change of control transaction.
 
Certain provisions of our certificate of incorporation and bylaws may have the effect of deterring takeovers, such as those provisions authorizing our board of directors to issue, from time to time, any series of preferred stock and fix the designation, powers, preferences and rights of the shares of such series of preferred stock; prohibiting stockholders from acting by written consent in lieu of a meeting; requiring advance notice of stockholder intention to put forth director nominees or bring up other business at a stockholders’ meeting; prohibiting stockholders from calling a special meeting of stockholders; requiring a 66 2/3% majority stockholder approval in order for stockholders to amend certain provisions of our certificate of incorporation or bylaws or adopt new bylaws; providing that, subject to the rights of preferred shares, the directors will be divided into three classes and the number of directors is to be fixed exclusively by our board of directors; and providing that none of our directors may be removed without cause. Section 203 of the DGCL, from which we did not elect to opt out, provides that if a holder acquires 15% or more of our stock without prior approval of our board of directors, that holder will be subject to certain restrictions on its ability to acquire us within three years. These provisions may delay or deter a change of control of us, and could limit the price that investors might be willing to pay in the future for shares of our common stock.
 
CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
This prospectus contains forward looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, principally in the sections entitled “Description of Business,” “Risk Factors,” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this prospectus, including statements regarding future events, our future financial performance, business strategy and plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. We have attempted to identify forward-looking statements by terminology including “anticipates,” “believes,” “can,” “continue,” “could,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “may,” “plans,” “potential,” “predicts,” “should,” or “will” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Although we do not make forward looking statements unless we believe we have a reasonable basis for doing so, we cannot guarantee their accuracy. These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, including the risks outlined under “Risk Factors” or elsewhere in this prospectus, which may cause our or our industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risk factors, nor can we address the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause our actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements included in this document are based on information available to us on the date hereof, and we assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements.

You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statement, each of which applies only as of the date of this prospectus. Before you invest in our securities, you should be aware that the occurrence of the events described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this prospectus could negatively affect our business, operating results, financial condition and stock price. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this prospectus to conform our statements to actual results or changed expectations.
 
 
USE OF PROCEEDS

We estimate that we will receive up to $           in net proceeds from the sale of shares in this offering, based on an assumed price of $       per share and after deducting estimated underwriter fees and offering expenses payable by us.  We will use the net proceeds from this offering to further develop our products and operations, for working capital and other general corporate purposes.

We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale of the shares being offered by shareholders in this prospectus.

DILUTION
 
If you purchase shares in this offering, your interest will be diluted immediately to the extent of the difference between the assumed public offering price of $        per share and the as adjusted net tangible book value per share of our common stock immediately following this offering.
 
Our net tangible book value as of March 31, 2012 was approximately $8,104,304, or approximately $0.05 per share. Net tangible book value per share represents our total tangible assets less total tangible liabilities, divided by the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of March 31, 2012.
 
Net tangible book value dilution per share to new investors represents the difference between the amount per share paid by purchasers in this offering and the as adjusted net tangible book value per share of common stock immediately after completion of this offering. After giving effect to our sale of                shares in this offering at an assumed public offering price of $per share, and after deducting the estimated underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses, our as adjusted net tangible book value as of March 31, 2012 would have been $         million, or $          per share. This represents an immediate increase in net tangible book value of $           per share to existing stockholders and an immediate dilution in net tangible book value of $per share to purchasers of shares in this offering, as illustrated in the following table:
 
Assumed public offering price per share
  $    
Net tangible book value per share as of March 31, 2012

  $    
 
The foregoing illustration does not reflect potential dilution from the exercise of outstanding options or warrants to purchase shares of our common stock. A $1.00 increase or decrease in the assumed public offering price would increase or decrease the estimated net proceeds we receive from this offering by $         , assuming the number of shares we offer, as set forth on the cover of this prospectus, remains the same and after deducting estimated underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by us.

MARKET PRICE OF AND DIVIDENDS ON OUR COMMON STOCK AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS
 
Price Range of Common Stock

Our common stock is quoted on the OTCBB under the symbol “MNGA.” The OTCBB is a quotation service that displays real-time quotes, last-sale prices, and volume information in over-the-counter equity securities. An OTCBB equity security generally is any equity that is not listed or traded on a national securities exchange. The following table shows, for the periods indicated, the high and low bid prices per share of our common stock as reported by the OTCBB quotation service. These bid prices represent prices quoted by broker-dealers on the OTCBB quotation service.

We intend to submit an application to list our common stock on NYSE MKT in conjunction with this offering; however, there can be no guarantee that such listing application will be approved. Additionally, in conjunction with the listing application, the Company intends to effect a reverse stock split, which may be effected prior to the closing of this offering.  The ratio of the intended reverse stock split has not yet been determined.

Holders of Common Stock

As of May 25, 2012, there were approximately 324 stockholders of record. Because shares of our common stock are held by depositaries, brokers and other nominees, the number of beneficial holders of our shares is substantially larger than the number of stockholders of record. On May 29, 2012, the last reported sale price per share for our common stock as reported by the OTCBB quotation service was $0.60 per share.
 
Dividends

We have not declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock, and we do not anticipate declaring or paying cash dividends for the foreseeable future. We are not subject to any legal restrictions respecting the payment of dividends, except that we may not pay dividends if the payment would render us insolvent. Any future determination as to the payment of cash dividends on our common stock will be at our board of directors’ discretion and will depend on our financial condition, operating results, capital requirements and other factors that our board of directors considers to be relevant.

PENNY STOCK CONSIDERATIONS
  
Our common stock is currently trading at less than $5.00 per share and is therefore subject to the SEC’s penny stock rules. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00. Penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The broker-dealer must also make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity, if any, in the secondary market for a security that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. The additional burdens imposed upon broker-dealers by such requirements may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in our securities, which could severely limit their market price and liquidity of our securities. These requirements may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and may affect your ability to resell our common stock.

 
Our Company
 
We are an alternative energy company that creates and produces hydrogen-based alternative fuel through the gasification of liquid waste. We have developed a process which transforms various types of liquid waste through a proprietary plasma arc machine. The result of the product is to carbonize the waste for normal disposal. A byproduct of this process is to produce an alternative to natural gas currently sold in the metalworking market. We produce gas bottled in cylinders for the purpose of distribution to the metalworking market as an alternative to acetylene. Additionally, we market, for sale or licensure, our proprietary plasma arc technology. Through the course of our business development, we have established a retail and wholesale platform to sell our fuel for use in the metalworking and manufacturing industries. In 2010, we recognized our initial sale of a Plasma Arc Flow unit and are continuing efforts to sell or lease additional equipment to end users.
 
History
 
MagneGas Corporation was organized in the state of Delaware on December 9, 2005. We were originally organized under the name 4307, Inc, for the purpose of locating and negotiating with a business entity for a combination. On April 2, 2007 all the issued and outstanding shares of 4307, Inc. were purchased by Clean Energies Tech Co., a private company owned by Dr. Santilli. Following this stock purchase, our name was changed to MagneGas Corporation.

Our Industry
 
We focus our efforts on producing and selling fuel and equipment for the metalworking fuel market. This market is currently dominated by acetylene. Acetylene is a gas that is considered toxic, emits soot when it burns and can be very volatile. In recent months, several acetylene production plants have exploded, causing a shortage of acetylene and raising prices. MagneGas on the other hand, emits oxygen when it burns and independent users have rated MagneGas as a cleaner alternative to acetylene.
 
 
According to a recent report on the global market for metalworking gasses by the Freedonia Group, “demand for industrial gases in metal welding and fabrication markets is projected to increase 8.6 percent per year to $5.6 billion in 2014. Gains will be driven primarily by expanding industrial production and construction activity. As a result, the greatest opportunities for growth will emerge in China, India and other developing economies, where industrialization is proceeding most rapidly and where further infrastructural development is key to sustained economic growth. Western Europe, North America and Japan will remain the largest consumers of industrial gases for welding and fabrication markets, although growth opportunities will not equal those of developing economies.”

Our Competitive Strengths
 
Patented, sustainable, disruptive technology and fuel source – Our patented Plasma Arc Flow System recycles liquid waste through a patented process, producing a hydrogen-based fuel called MagneGas, which the we believe can become, among other things, a replacement for acetylene.
 
World class technology team We are led by our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Scientist Dr. Santilli, who has been nominated for Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry. He is a former professor at both Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has received numerous Department of Energy research grants for the development of chemically unique clean fuel.  Dr. Santilli will retire as Chief Executive Officer of our Company effective June 15, 2012, but will remain as Chairman of our board of directors and as an employee of the Company as Chief Scientist.
 
Immediate commercial applications – Our MagneGas and Plasma Flow Arc technology are now both selling in the United States and globally. We expect our disruptive technology to displace current fuel gases such as acetylene.
 
Multiple revenue channels – We earn revenue from both clean fuel sales (domestic) and big-ticket sales of equipment (international).
 
Rapid growth potential – We expect to grow revenue through rapid growth in production and sales of MagneGas in the acetylene and natural gas markets, as well as through our international licensing agreement in China.
 
Our Growth Strategies
 
Our current focus is to continue the penetration achieved to date by MagneGas, primarily as an alternative for acetylene, into the global market for metalworking and fabrication gasses, a market which is projected to grow more than 8% annually to $5.6 billion by 2014. 

Our top priority is to grow sales of MagneGas primarily through an expanding network of established industrial gas distributors and strategic customers. We have distributors in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida. We also have a retail operation in Florida selling fuel directly to end users. We have obtained approval from the Department of Transportation to deliver fuel in Florida and currently have several customers purchasing fuel directly.
 
Even at current, early stage, modest production rates, we believe we can sell MagneGas for 20% to 30% less than acetylene. We project that this economic advantage over acetylene will become greater as production scales up to meet the demand that is already in the pipeline.
 
And while MagneGas costs are expected to decrease with scaling, some welding industry participants project that the cost of acetylene will rise due to the increasing costs of the calcium carbide from which acetylene is derived. Furthermore, increasingly stringent health and safety regulations will further constrain the production and use of acetylene. In short, we believe the negative economic and regulatory forces acting on acetylene contribute to the beneficial conditions and timing for the adoption of MagneGas as a substitute product.
 
We plan to expand through the use of direct marketing, exhibiting at trade events and networking opportunities. We plan to expand retail operations in Florida by leveraging existing customers for industry introductions. In the remainder of the United States, we plan to install filling stations in various geographically favorable locations and sell fuel to existing welding fuel distributors for quicker market penetration. In countries outside of the United States, we plan to conduct web-based marketing campaigns and attend industry events to attract potential equipment buyers. Those buyers are expected to purchase or lease equipment from us to produce fuel and sell that fuel to market while paying a royalty to us.
 
 
Our Products
 
We currently have two products: MagneGas and Plasma Arc Flow System.
 
Fuel
 
We currently produce MagneGas for the metalworking market from a feedstock of virgin ethylene glycol (automotive anti-freeze), which is purchased in bulk from outside suppliers. This is a temporary measure while we secure the permits required to process and handle post-consumer waste feedstock such as ethylene glycol, and eventually municipal streams such as sewage and sludge.
 
The fuel is hydrogen -based and can be used to replace natural gas. It is currently sold as a replacement for acetylene in the metalworking market.
 
The fuel is comprised of approximately 65% hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and other trace gases. It is stored in hydrogen cylinders which are then sold to market. We believe we can sell the cylinders at a 20% to 30% lower price than acetylene.
 
Equipment
 
The Plasma Arc Flow System can gasify many forms of liquid waste such as ethylene glycol, sewage and sludge.
 
Plasma Arc Flow refineries have been configured in various sizes ranging from 50kw to 500kw depending on the application. Plasma Arc Flow refineries range in price from $1 million to $3 million. A 200kw refinery was sold in 2010 to a customer in China for $1.855 million.
 
The patented Plasma Arc Flow System is based on the flow of a carbon-rich, liquid feedstock through an electric arc between two electrodes submerged in the feedstock. The arc decomposes the liquid molecules into atoms and forms an ultra-high temperature plasma around the tips of the electrodes which sterilizes any waste matter. The Plasma Arc Flow System also controls the formation of MagneGas, a hydrogen-rich fuel, which bubbles to the surface of the refining vessel for easy collection and subsequent compression. In this way, liquid waste streams or oils are converted into MagneGas with minimal by-products such as sterilized water (if using sewage as feedstock) and only a small amount of carbonaceous precipitates or other inert solids which are strained out for periodic removal and disposal.

We currently employ one employee focused on developing strategic relationships, one employee focused on marketing, one employee focused on business development and one employee focused on sales. Through the use of industry events, networking opportunities, web based marketing and direct sales, we are launching the market for metalworking fuel sales. The sales strategy is through hands on demonstration of the benefits of the fuel versus acetylene at customer locations. Our personnel bring the fuel onsite to the customer and demonstrate its use in real time as a cutting fuel. We also developed marketing material, videos and feature articles regarding MagneGas product and its uses in the metalworking industry. We distribute this material via direct mail and through the use of press releases.
 
Research and Development
 
We are currently pursuing several near-term R&D objectives, including:
 
Liquifaction of MagneGas – MagneGas is currently a gaseous fuel stored in hydrogen cylinders. We are planning research and development surrounding the liquefaction of the fuel. As a liquid, we believe the fuel will have many additional uses. We believe the gas can be liquefied by locating the proper catalyst. Some research has been completed in this area, however the proper catalyst has not been located at this time and we plan to test various catalysts for this purpose.
 
Separation of Hydrogen from MagneGas – MagneGas contains 65% hydrogen. The hydrogen can be separated via the use of a pressure swing vacuum station or pressure swing adsorption station. We have completed initial testing of hydrogen separation using our in house laboratory. However, further research and development is needed to purify the hydrogen and find industrial equipment that can produce large volumes of hydrogen fuel.
 
Increased productivity – We are exploring methods to increase fuel production via the use of different power units. The goal is to increase the voltage delivered to the arc, thereby increasing fuel production and productivity. We have purchased a new Amatek power unit and are currently developing new electronic controls for use with this unit.

In 2011, we spent $84,304 on our R&D activities, while in 2010, we spent $65,574 on our R&D activities.
 
 
Manufacturing
 
Equipment
 
The proprietary components of the MagneGas system are manufactured on location in our headquarters in Tarpon Springs, Florida and commercially available components such as generators and compressors are purchased from existing suppliers. The equipment is assembled and tested in Tarpon Springs and installed on location by our personnel.
 
Fuel
 
We have two facilities producing MagneGas, which is currently sold to market, our headquarters in Tarpon Springs and our new satellite location in Detroit, Michigan. Currently, MagneGas is produced and bottled into standard industrial gas cylinders in those facilities and then trucked to regional distributors or delivered directly to local retail customers. We have developed a plan to significantly expand and diversify MagneGas production and simplify distribution logistics by installing Plasma Arc Flow refineries at key locations around the country to be closer to regional distributors. We also plan to install refineries onsite at large end users such as demolition projects and steel recycling centers. We expect planned scale-up of production and reduction in shipping distances will further enhance the cost advantage MagneGas already has over acetylene. MagneGas cylinders and valves are slightly different from those used for acetylene primarily owing to the high hydrogen content of MagneGas. We intend to bring thousands of additional cylinders into rotation shortly.
 
Current MagneGas production is temporarily from a feedstock of virgin ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) as we secure the permits required to process and handle post-consumer waste streams such as anti-freeze. Our capital expansion plan includes provisions to secure the feedstock supplies, relationships and logistical abilities to process post-consumer waste oils such as used motor oils and/or anti-freeze. We estimate that the cost of using post-consumer waste steam feedstock, including related costs such as permitting and waste disposal, will be least 50% lower than using virgin feedstock furthering the advantage of using MagneGas instead of acetylene.
 
Customers
 
Some of our major customers and distributors are listed below:
 
Blue Water Industrial Products – Blue Water Industrial Products, based in New Baltimore, Michigan near Detroit is a leading supplier of metalworking and welding gases in the upper mid-west.
 
J&M Cylinder Gases – J&M is one of the largest independent manufacturers of acetylene in the southeastern United States and has an established sales platform serving eight distributors with 22 retail outlets, as well as three retail stores of its own, across Alabama and Tennessee. As with Blue Water, J&M's goal is to eventually make MagneGas a leading component of its fuel product offering. J&M is a distributor for MagneGas for the state of Alabama and the 250-mile radius around its Decatur, Alabama facility.

York Welding Supply – York Welding Supply is a metal fabrication gas distributor located in York, Pennsylvania. They sell several products related to the welding and welding fuel industry and have been actively distributing MagneGas for metalworking.
 
in Florida:
 
Garden Street Iron & Metal – Garden Street is a scrap metal processor and recycler with six facilities in Ohio and Florida.

CTL Transportation – CTL is a Florida-based trucking company that hauls chemicals nationwide from eleven terminals in six states. CTL is using MagneGas at its Mulberry, Florida terminal in the repair and maintenance of the location's 150 trucks. We believe it will have the opportunity to expand and extend MagneGas use to all eleven CTL locations.
 
Strategic Relationships
 
We recently entered into commercial testing and discussions with a select group of leading United States strategic industrial companies and military contractors which, after conducting preliminary reviews of MagneGas, are now seeking further testing. This includes a major United States automotive company that is considering eliminating acetylene in favor of MagneGas™ for its manufacturing.
 
 
In late May 2011, we announced that Edison Welding Supply, a testing contractor for the U.S. Navy is testing MagneGas as an environmentally-friendly alternative for major metal cutting projects, particularly to reduce emissions during the breakup and recycling of retiring vessels. We have received verbal confirmation that we will move to the next stage of hands on testing. However, this second level of testing has not yet been initiated and we have not received an estimated date for the next steps.
 
Competition
 
The main competition for the metalworking market is acetylene fuel. It is distributed through large multinational companies such as Airgas, and also through small regional independent distributors. The primary use of this fuel is for metal cutting and fabrication. It is produced from calcium carbide and is considered toxic and volatile.
 
MagneGas™ vs. Acetylene
 
The heat energy in MagneGas flame is concentrated in the primary cones and the secondary flame producing outstanding results with a thermal density in the flame. This improved energy density permits smaller, faster and cleaner cuts. Independent tests have established that MagneGas is fast, precise and an efficient cutting fuel.  The Welding Journal reported that MagneGas does have advantages as a welding fuel including high quality, clean cuts with less slag and smaller heat-affected zones.
 
For more than 100 years acetylene (C2H2) has been the world's leading welding and metalworking fuel primarily due to its high flame temperature. But acetylene has many drawbacks:
 
it is toxic, emitting heavy carbon soot and noxious fumes when burned;
it produces a wide, sloppy cut with a great deal of slag and top edge roll-over; and
it is a very unstable and volatile gas and can spontaneously detonate.

MagneGas can be a replacement to acetylene and independent users have confirmed that it has a similar cutting speed, no slag and no soot. While we believe that MagneGas provides advantages over acetylene, this type of fuel is a new technology that must gain acceptance by our potential customers.  Because of the long history of acetylene as the world’s primary welding and metalworking fuel, we face competition from existing producers and distributors, such as Airgas, and regional distributors that may have more resources, name recognition, and a larger customer base.
 
Regulation
 
We are subject to several state, federal and local laws and oversight by several agencies, including the Department of Transportation, Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”) and the Occupational Safety and Health Act in addition to local city and state zoning, fire and other regulations. Costs of complying with the various regulation and oversight are minimal.
 
We have obtained a hazardous material transportation permit from the Department of Transportation to allow the transport of MagneGas throughout the state of Florida. We use licensed hazardous waste transporters to deliver fuel to the rest of the country.
 
We currently use virgin ethylene glycol to produce fuel and thereby are not subject to the DEP permit required to process liquid waste. However, we are currently exploring the application process to obtain a hazardous and non hazardous liquid waste processing permit.
 
Internationally, we recently obtained a compliance certification that confirms that the manufacturing and operation of our equipment is in conformance with the mechanical and electrical safety requirements of the European Community laws.
 
 
We and our customers may be required to comply with a number of federal, state and local laws and regulations in the areas of safety, health and environmental controls. In as much as we intend to market the Plasma Arc Flow System internationally, we will be required to comply with laws and regulations and, when applicable, obtain permits in those other countries.
 
We cannot be certain that required permits and approvals will be obtained; that new environmental regulations will not be enacted or that if they are our customers and we can meet stricter standards of operation or obtain additional operating permits or approvals.
 
Facilities
 
We presently lease 5,000 square feet for our principal offices at 150 Rainville Rd, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689 on a month-to-month basis. The property is a commercial property for our production facility with an attached office. In addition, we have leased a one acre parcel of gated land for storage located adjacent to our facility and a 6,000 square foot gas manufacturing facility in Detroit, Michigan.
 
Intellectual Property
 
The Plasma Arc Flow refinery forces a high volume flow of liquid waste through an electric arc between carbon electrodes. The benefit of this from a competitive perspective is that it sterilizes the bio-contaminants within the waste without the need to add any chemical disinfecting agents. In addition, while sterilizing the liquid, a clean burning fuel is produced.

MagneGas Corporation has patent ownership on the technology in the United States and is exploring filing patents under the Patent Cooperation Treaty in other areas of the world as needed with the exclusion of India, Africa, Europe and China. MagneGas Corporation has a 20% ownership interest in MagneGas entities that control the intellectual property in Europe, Africa and China. MagneGas Corporation owns the following U.S. patents:
 
U.S. Patent No. 6,926,872 – issued on August 9, 2005 entitled Apparatus and Method for Producing a Clean Burning Combustible Gas With Long Life Electrodes and Multiple Plasma-Arc-Flows;
 
U.S. Patent No. 6,972,118 – issued on December 6, 2005 entitled Apparatus and Method for Processing Hydrogen, Oxygen and Other Gases;
 
U.S. Patent No. 7,780,924 – issued August 24, 2010 entitled Operating Under High Power, Pressure and Temperature Conditions to Produce A Combustible Gas.
 
We also own the U.S. Trademark for "MAGNEGAS."
 
Employees
 
We presently have sixteen full-time employees. We have leased employees and independent technicians perform production and other duties, as required. We consider our relationship with our employees to be excellent.
 
Legal Proceedings
 
We are currently not involved in any litigation that we believe could have a materially adverse effect on our financial condition or results of operations. There is no action, suit, proceeding, inquiry or investigation before or by any court, public board, government agency, self-regulatory organization or body pending or, to the knowledge of the executive officers of our Company or any of our subsidiaries, threatened against or affecting our Company, our common stock, any of our subsidiaries or of our Company’s or our Company’s subsidiaries’ officers or directors in their capacities as such, in which an adverse decision could have a material adverse effect 

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The following discussion and analysis of the results of operations and financial condition for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, as well as for the three month period ended March 31, 2012, and should be read in conjunction with our financial statements, and the notes to those financial statements that are included elsewhere in this prospectus.
 
Our discussion includes forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties, such as our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those set forth under the ”Risk Factors”,” Cautionary Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Description of Business” sections in this prospectus. We use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements.
 
 
Overview
 
Our operating plan and mission is to create a hydrogen-based fuel through the gasification of liquid waste. A process has been developed which transforms various types of liquid waste through a proprietary plasma arc machine. The result of the product is to carbonize the waste for normal disposal. A byproduct of this process is to produce an alternative to natural gas currently sold in the metalworking market. The patented proprietary technology is owned by our Company. We are putting the majority of our efforts in launching fuel sales to the metalworking market as we feel this is the best opportunity to generate revenue in the near term.
 
The majority of our revenue in 2010 was the result of a one-time sale of a refinery to our partner in China for the Municipal Wastewater market. However, since that time, we determined that better opportunities exist in the metalworking market to generate revenue in the immediate term. As a result, we have shifted our focus from selling refineries for sewage treatment to generating recurring revenue in metalworking fuel sales. This has resulted in a drop in revenue from 2010 to 2011 as we ramp up sales in this new market.

Offering with DDI Industry International (Beijing) Co., Ltd

On June 1, 2011, the Company executed agreements for two private offerings of its common stock with DDI Industry International (Beijing) Co., Ltd (“DDI”).  In the first offering we issued an aggregate of 3,846,254 shares of our common stock to DDI for a purchase price of $500,000, at $0.13 per share.  In the second offering, we issued an aggregate of 3,333,333 shares to DDI for a purchase price of $561,248, at $0.168 per share.  The Company intends to use the proceeds received from DDI in the offerings for an investment in the metal working market, cylinders and related matters.

Prior to these offerings, we had a material relationship with DDI.  In June 2010, we entered into an agreement with the Investor to form a Chinese joint venture (“MagneGas China”).  Pursuant to the agreement, DDI acquired exclusive MagneGas technology and manufacturing rights for the Greater China Market.  DDI also acquired 14,814,815 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $2 million and purchased a 300kw Plasma Arc Refinery at a purchase price of $1.855 million.  We own 20% of the equity in MagneGas China and our Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ruggero Santilli, is a member of the MagneGas China board of directors.  Allen Feng, the President and Chief Executive Officer of the DDI, is also a member of the board of directors of our Company.

2011 Private Placement

On October 28, 2011 and November 8, 2011, we entered into definitive agreements with investors to sell in a private placement an aggregate of 19,662,500 shares of our common stock and warrants to purchase 19,662,500 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $0.16 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $3,146,000, before deducting placement agent fees and other offering expenses. The warrants are exercisable at an exercise price of $0.30 per share and expire five years from the initial closing date, which was October 28, 2011.
 
Proceeds from the private placement have been used primarily to launch in full to the national metalworking market by installing refinery filling stations in Detroit, wholly owned and operated by our Company, and to significantly expand our fuel cylinder inventory to fill more and larger orders.
 
2012 Private Placement
 
On March 28, 2012, we entered into a definitive agreement with investors to sell in a private placement an aggregate of 19,412,500 shares of our common stock and warrants to purchase 9,706,250 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $0.20 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $3,882,500, before deducting placement agent fees and other offering expenses. The warrants are exercisable at an exercise price of $0.40 per share and expire five years from the initial closing date, which was March 29, 2012.

Metalworking Market

We are seeking to expand sales in the metalworking market through the use of established industry wholesalers, trade events and media coverage in trade journals. Our strategy is to sell MagneGas for metal cutting to retail, wholesale and large strategic companies. We are actively working with several independent sales representatives and distributors to support these efforts. The Company has completed the installation of its refinery in Michigan and initiated operations in that location as we execute our strategy.  We have secured several large customers and are in the process of appointing additional distributors. In addition, as part of our execution strategy, we are actively seeking additional locations, sales support and manufacturing personnel in order to place our next refinery installations.
 
 
We have finished a one year analysis by a large automobile manufacturing company in Detroit and have received formal approval for use of the gas as a replacement to acetylene on a trial basis.  We are in the process of introducing the fuel at various locations in Michigan to further this relationship. In addition, we are in various stages of negotiation with other national companies and military contractors seeking to use MagneGas in their facilities. These large strategic relationships have an inherently long sales cycle with uncertain outcome and as such we are complimenting these efforts with an aggressive direct local retail and wholesale distribution strategy in Michigan and Florida.

Hydrogen Market

We believe that hydrogen can be effectively separated from MagneGas for industrial use.  We believe that the hydrogen created from MagneGas can be produced in large quantities and sold for commercial, industrial and military use.  We are exploring the infrastructure necessary to enter this market profitability and expect to begin sales in early 2013.

Municipal Market

Although the majority of our focus has shifted to establishing sales in the metalworking market, our long-term plan is to still expand commercially into the municipal wastewater market.  In order to pursue this market, a municipal plant scale demonstration center converting sludge or sewage to fuel and other byproducts is needed. We do not anticipate this will occur until 2013 or later as we are focusing our efforts on generating revenue in the metalworking market and converting existing equipment to produce gas for that market. Although we still plan to pursue the municipal wastewater market in the long term, we are relying on our partners in China and Europe to conduct the extensive testing needed to provide the empirical data to launch this market properly.

International Expansion

We are seeking to expand globally through the sale of equipment and the establishment of distribution and joint venture arrangements. We are currently in various stages of negotiation with representatives from various countries.
 
Business Continuation and Succession
 
We have developed and trained a team of engineers and consultants to become knowledgeable with MagneGas product and the Plasma Arc Flow System.  In addition, Ermanno Santilli, son of Dr. Santilli has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer effective June 15, 2012.
 
Results of Operations

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011
 
Revenues

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 we generated revenues of $131,983 and $98,988, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 we generated revenues from our metal cutting fuel of $108,650 and $25,655, respectively. We have recognized an increase in revenue through our sales efforts and increased our demand for future orders for our metal cutting fuel due to industry acceptance and sales focus. We anticipate sustained and increasing revenue growth as our operations develop in fulfilling our increasing backlog of orders.  Orders have increased due to our expanded locations and our products performance in initial sales testing with distributors and potential volume customers.  Sales and delivery has been slowed during the first quarter due to our attention to efforts in establishing our facilities in Michigan and Florida, which has been our focus, as we believe our return on investment will be immediately recognized in the near term.  We believe that there is a significant market share which we should attract due to our abilities to set up locations where there is immediate demand. We are experiencing increased interest from new and existing customers. We believe that our metal cutting fuel orders will increase significantly as the economy and the building market recovers.
 
During the second half of 2010 we received contracts for our technology licensing. We have recognized $23,333 and $73,333 for the three month periods ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. These license fees are ratably earned over the terms of the licensing agreement.
 
 
Of our four available refineries, one is operating in Florida and one is operating in Michigan. We are strategically deciding where to set -up the other two refineries, as they are awaiting deployment. Based on our volume projections, we anticipate that there will be cost recovery within a 3 – 4 year period.

Operating Expenses
 
Operating costs for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 were $759,248 and $423,176, respectively. The increase was primarily attributable to increases in: (a) technical sales support for production; (b) establishing two locations, as we increase our ability to serve our major customers; (c) stock-based compensation; (d) depreciation and amortization and (e) research and development efforts, due to environmental testing and efficiency design.  During the course of the last year we have executed our operating plan which included the hiring of personnel, primarily technical persons, thereby certain expenses are not comparable to prior year expenses, specifically expenses for technical professionals.
 
In the current quarter, as in prior quarters, we used common stock as a method of payment for certain services, primarily the advertising and promotion of the technology to increase investor awareness and as incentive to our key employees and consultants.   We expect to continue these arrangements, though due to a stronger operating position this method of payment may become limited to specific vendors.

Net Loss

Our operating results have recognized losses in the amount of $694,362 and $215,413 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The increase in loss was for a general increases incurred for our general internal support for our increasing metal cutting segment.
 
Comparison of the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010

Revenues

For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 we generated revenues of $381,892 and $2,036,238, respectively.  We generated revenues of $138,560 and $34,572 from our metal cutting fuel sales operations for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The increase was due to the continued expansion of customer relationships. We have fulfilled initial orders and are receiving repeat orders from multiple customers. To attract and attain new customers we have performed demonstrations and sent samples to prospective accounts. Our facility has been set up to fulfill future anticipated orders.

The majority of our revenue in 2010 was the result of a one-time sale of a refinery to our partner in China for the municipal wastewater market, for a net sales price of $1,855,000. However, since that time, we determined better opportunities exist in the metalworking market to generate revenue in the immediate term. As a result, we shifted our focus from selling refineries to generating recurring revenue in metalworking fuel sales. This has resulted in a drop in revenue from $1,855,000 in 2010 to $0 in 2011 as we ramp up sales in this new market.
 
During the second half of 2010 we received a contract for our technology licensing. We have recognized in the amount of $243,332 and $146,666 for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. These license fees are ratably earned over the terms of the licensing agreement.
 
For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, we recognized $0 and $1,855,000, respectively, from our contract for the sale of our Plasma Arc Flow production unit. Our only contract to date was completed in the third quarter of 2010. We have completed the manufacturing of four units for sale or fuel production, currently in our inventory and fixed assets. Three units have been reclassified as fixed assets, as they have been deployed to locations for the purposes of producing metal cutting fuel, as described earlier as a shift in our marketing efforts towards production.
 
During the last quarter of 2011 we reached agreements with key distributors to place our units at locations as production refineries.  
 
Operating Expenses

Operating costs were incurred in the amount of $3,275,665 and $1,264,745 for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The operating expenses increased significantly as our operations expanded.  During 2011 we completed the manufacturing of four units, resulting in increases in our wage compensation of approximately $600,000, included in office and administration, as compared to the prior year.   Professional expenses increased over $500,000 in 2011 due to costs associated with closings on our funding, as well as legal fees for several contractual agreements.  Selling costs increased approximately $100,000 in 2011 as compared to 2010, resulting from our increased efforts to expand our metal cutting business as well as our unit sale efforts. There was a significant increase in the issuance of common stock for services valued in the amount of $787,990 in 2011 compared to $262,251 in 2010.  Public and investor relations costs increased approximately $30,000 for the increase in regulatory compliance and the promotion of the public awareness.
 
 
We use common stock as a method of payment for certain services, primarily the advertising and promotion of the technology to increase awareness and as incentive to our key employees and consultants. We expect to continue these arrangements, though due to a stronger operating position this method of payment may become limited to specific vendors.

Net Income and Loss before Provision for Income Taxes

We had a net loss, before taxes, in the amount of $2,937,062 for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to a net income before income taxes of $40,000 for the year ended December 31, 2010.  The decrease in the year over year results was primarily due from the sale of a recycling unit that was recognized in 2010, which created positive earnings in that year.  Margin on the 2010 sale of the unit resulted in a profit.  Our general and administrative expenses and stock based compensation, as described above in the operating expense discussion, increased, resulting in the 2011 loss.   Investments through sales of common stock ($2 million investment by DDI, a China company in 2010 and $1 million in 2011) and private placements in excess of $3 million have allowed our expansion of infrastructure and the manufacturing of additional units available for sale and available for production.  We believe that our investment in our infrastructure will have future benefits, as potential sales will be fulfilled and expanded metal cutting fuel fulfillments will generate consistent revenue streams.

Comparison of the year ended December 31, 2010 and 2009
 
Revenues
 
For the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 we generated revenues of $2,036,238 and $18,564 respectively. Our first unit sale in 2010 was for a net sales price of $1,855,000, compared to $0 for 2009. License fees were recognized in the amount of $146,666 and $0 for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. We generated revenues of $34,572 and $18,564 from our metal cutting fuel sales operations for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The increase was due to the continued expansion of customer relationships. We secured new channels for the distribution of our metal cutting fuel. We fulfilled initial orders and received repeat orders from multiple customers. To attract and attain new customers we performed demonstrations and sent samples to prospective accounts. Our facility was set up to fulfill future anticipated orders.
 
We entered into a six month agreement with a potential licenser for the Mexico territory and received a non-refundable payment of $150,000. The payment was for six month consideration period.
 
Operating Expenses
 
Operating costs were incurred in the amount of $1,264,745 and $1,260,073 for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The operating expenses remained relatively stable; however, there was a decrease in the issuance of common stock for services valued in the amount of $262,251 in 2010 compared to $822,714 in 2009. This decrease was offset by increases in general administrative expenses. Specifically, due to public filing requirements, there was an increase in investor relations of approximately $20,000 for the promotion of the public awareness. Professional expenses, which included legal, accounting and consulting increased approximately $34,000 to $115,287 in 2010 from $81,265 in 2009, primarily due to increased costs of legal and technical matters involving the engineering of the Plasma Arc Flow unit sold. Selling and advertising increased approximately $250,000 to $319,681 in 2010 from $69,619 in 2009, for efforts in product promotion and trade shows. Office administration increased approximately $219,000 to $293,258 in 2010 from $74,277 in 2009; increase was due to an increase in infrastructure for the support of our unit sale, as well as projected increases in our metal cutting fuel.
 
Net Income and Loss before Provision for Income Taxes
 
Our net income, before taxes, was $40,000 for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of $1,256,683 for the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase in the year over year results was primarily due from the sale of a recycling unit. Our margin on the sale of the unit resulted in a profit, although our general and administrative expenses, as described above in the operating expense discussion, increased as this revenue and the subsequent investments through sales of common stock ($2 million investment by DDI) allowed our expansion of infrastructure.
 
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
In March 2012 and 2011 we received investments of $3,542,500 and $0, respectively.  Additionally, on April 3, 2012 we completed a private placement of its common stock, receiving an additional $340,000, inclusive of offering costs.  An aggregate of 19,412,500 shares of its common stock and warrants to purchase 9,706,250 shares of our common stock were issued at a purchase price of $0.20 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $3,882,500.  
 
In both June 2011 and August 2011, we received investments of $500,000. Additionally, on October 28, 2011 and November 8, 2011, we entered into definitive agreements with investors to sell in a private placement an aggregate of 19,662,500 shares of our common stock and warrants to purchase 19,662,500 shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $0.16 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $3,146,000. We believe we can currently satisfy our cash requirements for the next twelve months with our current cash and expected revenues. Management plans to increase revenue to sustain future operational growth.

Completion of our plan of operation is subject to attaining adequate and continued revenue. We cannot assure investors that adequate revenues will be generated.  In the absence of our projected revenues, we believe that we will be able to proceed with limited plan of operation.  Even without significant revenues within the next twelve months, based on our current cash position, we anticipate being able to continue with our present activities.  Although we believe we currently are adequately financed for limited growth, we plan to complete a second round of funding through a fully registered offering in the next six months to allow the complete fulfillment of our long term strategic plan.
 
As reflected in the unaudited financial statements we have an accumulated a deficit of approximately $5.8 million dollars.  Our cash flow from operations used $738,150 of cash, primarily used in the manufacturing and completion of our refineries for future use and the installation of two units at locations.  Our investing activities used $401,620 of cash for the acquisition of equipment, primarily cylinders.  Our financing activities resulted in cash provided in the amount of $3,217,992 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, primarily due to the sale of our common shares for gross proceeds of $3,542,500, less $311,130 of offering costs.  
 
At March 31, 2012 we had $3,507,634 in cash to meet current obligations.  

Management believes that current revenue generated and recent proceeds from the sale of our common stock provides the opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern and fund the-long term strategic plan.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

Management Consideration of Alternative Business Strategies

In order to continue to protect and increase stockholder value management believes that it may, from time to time, consider alternative management strategies to create value for the Company or additional revenues.  Strategies to be reviewed may include acquisitions; roll-ups; strategic alliances; joint ventures on large projects; and/or mergers.

Management will only consider these options where it believes the result would be to increase stockholder value while continuing the viability of the Company.

Critical Accounting Policies
 
The Company’s significant accounting policies are presented in the Company’s notes to financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2011 which are contained in this prospectus. The significant accounting policies that are most critical and aid in fully understanding and evaluating the reported financial results include the following:

The Company prepares its financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. These principals require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management believes that these estimates are reasonable and have been discussed with the board of directors; however, actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
The Company issues restricted stock to consultants for various services.  Cost for these transactions are measured at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is measurable more reliably measurable.  The value of the common stock is measured at the earlier of (i) the date at which a firm commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached or (ii) the date at which the counterparty's performance is complete.
 
 
Long-lived assets such as property, equipment and identifiable intangibles are reviewed for impairment whenever facts and circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.  When required impairment losses on assets to be held and used are recognized based on the fair value of the asset.  The fair value is determined based on estimates of future cash flows, market value of similar assets, if available, or independent appraisals, if required.  If the carrying amount of the long-lived asset is not recoverable from its undiscounted cash flows, an impairment loss is recognized for the difference between the carrying amount and fair value of the asset.  When fair values are not available, the Company estimates fair value using the expected future cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risk associated with the recovery of the assets.  We did not recognize any impairment losses for any periods presented.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

We have reviewed accounting pronouncements and interpretations thereof that have effectiveness dates during the periods reported and in future periods. We have carefully considered the new pronouncements that alter previous generally accepted accounting principles and does not believe that any new or modified principles will have a material impact on the corporation’s reported financial position or operations in the near term.  The applicability of any standard is subject to the formal review of our financial management and certain standards are under consideration.  Those standards have been addressed in the notes to the audited financial statement and included this prospectus.

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings
 
To the best of our knowledge, none of our directors or executive officers has, during the past ten years:
 
been convicted in a criminal proceeding or been subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses);
had any bankruptcy petition filed by or against the business or property of the person, or of any partnership, corporation or business association of which he was a general partner or executive officer, either at the time of the bankruptcy filing or within two years prior to that time;
been subject to any order, judgment, or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction or federal or state authority, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting, his involvement in any type of business, securities, futures, commodities, investment, banking, savings and loan, or insurance activities, or to be associated with persons engaged in any such activity;
been found by a court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action or by the SEC or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended, or vacated;
been the subject of, or a party to, any federal or state judicial or administrative order, judgment, decree, or finding, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated (not including any settlement of a civil proceeding among private litigants), relating to an alleged violation of any federal or state securities or commodities law or regulation, any law or regulation respecting financial institutions or insurance companies including, but not limited to, a temporary or permanent injunction, order of disgorgement or restitution, civil money penalty or temporary or permanent cease-and-desist order, or removal or prohibition order, or any law or regulation prohibiting mail or wire fraud or fraud in connection with any business entity; or
been the subject of, or a party to, any sanction or order, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any self-regulatory organization (as defined in Section 3(a)(26) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”)), any registered entity (as defined in Section 1(a)(29) of the Commodity Exchange Act), or any equivalent exchange, association, entity or organization that has disciplinary authority over its members or persons associated with a member.
 
Except as set forth in our discussion below in “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions,” none of our directors or executive officers has been involved in any transactions with us or any of our directors, executive officers, affiliates or associates which are required to be disclosed pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Commission.
 
Term of Office
 
Our directors are appointed for a one-year term to hold office until the next annual general meeting of our shareholders or until removed from office in accordance with our bylaws. Our officers are appointed by our board of directors and hold office until removed by the board.
  
Corporate Governance
 
We are a smaller reporting Company, not subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act respecting any director. We have conducted special board of director meetings almost every month since inception. Each of our directors has attended all meetings either in person or via telephone conference. We do not currently have a separately designated audit, nominating or compensation committee. In addition to the contact information in this prospectus, each stockholder will be given specific information on how he/she can direct communications to the officers and directors of the corporation at our annual shareholders meetings. All communications from shareholders are relayed to the members of the board of directors. We intend to list our common stock on NYSE MKT in conjunction with this offering, however, there can be no guarantee that such listing shall be achieved at any time. If we do successfully list, we will need to comply with the applicable corporate governance requirements of NYSE MKT.
 
 
Director Independence
 
Because our common stock is not currently listed on a national securities exchange, in determining whether the members of our board of directors are independent, we have elected to use the definition of “independent director” set forth by Section 803 of the Listing Standards for the NYSE MKT.  Under Section 803 of the Listing Standards for the NYSE MKT, among other considerations, an “independent director” means a person other than an executive officer or employee of the Company. Consistent with the considerations of the above-mentioned listing standard, and after review of all relevant transactions or relationships between each director, or any of his family members, and MagneGas Corporation, or its senior management, our board of directors has determined that none of its members are currently independent within the meaning of the applicable listing standard of the NYSE MKT. We do not have an audit committee, compensation committee or nominating committee.
 
Board Leadership Structure and Role in Risk Oversight
 
Although we have not adopted a formal policy on whether the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer positions should be separate or combined, we have historically determined that it is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders to combine these roles. Dr. Santilli has served as our Chief Executive Officer and Chairman since April 2, 2007. Due to the small size and early stage of the Company, historically, it was most effective to have the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer positions combined. As of June 15, 2012, Dr. Santilli will no longer be serving as our Chief Executive Officer and will be succeeded by Ermanno Santilli.  Dr. Santilli will remain as Chairman of our board of directors.  As of June 15, 2012, the Chairman and Chief Executive Office positions will be separate roles.
 
Our board of directors is primarily responsible for overseeing our risk management processes. The board of directors receives and reviews periodic reports from management, auditors, legal counsel, and others, as considered appropriate regarding our Company’s assessment of risks. The board of directors focuses on the most significant risks facing our Company and our Company’s general risk management strategy, and also ensures that risks undertaken by our Company are consistent with the board’s appetite for risk. While the board oversees our Company’s risk management, management is responsible for day-to-day risk management processes. We believe this division of responsibilities is the most effective approach for addressing the risks facing our Company and that our board leadership structure supports this approach.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS
 
The following are the related party transactions in which we have engaged since May 2007:
 
At various times we received advances from a stockholder for an unsecured promissory note. All funds are at the same terms of the original stockholder note. These promissory notes have no repayment date; however they are payable within 30 days of written demand. Payment is to include accrued simple interest at 4%. All notes have been paid in full.
 
In 2008, an advance in the amount of $10,000 was made by a company owned by a stockholder, for initial deposit for services. There were no repayment terms to this advance and the amount was payable upon demand. This has been paid in full.
 
 
 
In February 2008, we entered into a five-year consulting agreement with Dr. Santilli, whose knowledge and expertise of the technology is essential in the development of the MagneGas product. The terms of the consulting agreement consist of issuance of common stock (100,000 shares) and payment of $5,000 per month to Dr. Santilli, upon the determination by the board of directors of MagneGas Corporation of achieving adequate funding. The board of directors has since determined that Dr. Santilli’s monthly accrued salary will be $15,000 per month.
 
Beginning in April 2008, we entered into a month-to-month lease, at a monthly rate of $2,500 per month for facilities to occupy approximately 3,000 square feet of a 6,000 square foot building and the use of certain equipment and utilities, as needed. In January 2011, the Company expanded to occupy 5,000 square feet of the building and as a result, the rent was increased to $4,000 per month. The facility allows for expansion needs. The lease is held by a company that is effectively controlled by Dr. Santilli.
 
On December 28, 2009 we acquired all relevant patents and intellectual property for the MagneGas technology from a company, Hyfuels, Inc. related by common management, that originally secured an intellectual property license. We issued 30,000,000 shares of common stock, valued at the fair market trading value of the stock at the time of purchase, in exchange for the intellectual property and U.S. patents. We have no further transactions contemplated with Hyfuels, Inc.
 
The use of an initial small production refinery has been contributed by Dr. Santilli. The value of the refinery is approximately $210,000; the computed fair value of this month to month rental agreement is $1,870 per month and has been charged to equipment rental expense in the operating expenses, beginning in July 2008.
 
We entered into an agreement to acquire a 20% ownership of MagneGas Europe. MagneGas Europe is related by common management. The Chief Executive Officer of MagneGas Europe, Ermanno Santilli, is also currently the Vice President of our Company and is the son of Dr. Santilli. Dr. Santilli is also a stockholder of MagneGas Europe. As of June 15, 2012, Ermanno Santilli will succeed Dr. Santilli as Chief Executive Officer of our Company.
 
DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES

Introduction
 
In the discussion that follows, we have summarized selected provisions of our certificate of incorporation, bylaws and the DGCL relating to our capital stock. This summary is not complete. This discussion is subject to the relevant provisions of Delaware law and is qualified in its entirety by reference to our certificate of incorporation and our bylaws. You should read the provisions of our certificate of incorporation and our bylaws as currently in effect for provisions that may be important to you.
 
Authorized Capital Stock
 
Our authorized capital stock consists of 900,000,000 shares of common stock at a par value of $0.001 per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock at a par value of $0.001 per share, of which 1,000,000 is designated as Series A Preferred stock. As of May 25, 2012, 176,341,916 shares of our common stock and 1,000,000 shares of our Series A Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding. The Company will be undertaking a reverse stock split, which may take effect prior to the closing of this offering.
 
Common Stock
 
Holders of our common stock are entitled to one vote for each share on all matters submitted to a stockholder vote. Our common stock does not have cumulative voting rights. Therefore, holders of a majority of the shares of common stock voting for the election of directors can elect all of the directors. Holders of our common stock representing a majority of the voting power of our capital stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote, represented in person or by proxy, are necessary to constitute a quorum at any meeting of our stockholders. A vote by the holders of a majority of our outstanding shares is required to effectuate certain fundamental corporate changes such as liquidation, merger or an amendment to our certificate of incorporation. Although there are no provisions in our charter or by-laws that may delay, defer or prevent a change in control, the board of directors is authorized, without stockholder approval, to issue shares of preferred stock that may contain rights or restrictions that could have this effect. Holders of common stock are entitled to share in all dividends that the board of directors, in its discretion, declares from legally available funds. In the event of liquidation, dissolution or winding up, each outstanding share entitles its holder to participate pro rata in all assets that remain after payment of liabilities and after providing for each class of stock, if any, having preference over the common stock. Holders of our common stock have no pre-emptive rights, no conversion rights and there are no redemption provisions applicable to our common stock.
 
Preferred Stock
 
Our certificate of incorporation provides that we are authorized to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock with a par value of $.001 per share. Our board of directors has the authority, without further action by the stockholders, to issue from time to time the preferred stock in one or more series for such consideration and with such relative rights, privileges, preferences and restrictions that the board may determine. The preferences, powers, rights and restrictions of different series of preferred stock may differ with respect to dividend rates, amounts payable on liquidation, voting rights, conversion rights, redemption provisions, sinking fund provisions and purchase funds and other matters. The issuance of preferred stock could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of common stock.
 
Our Series A Preferred Stock has liquidation and dividend rights over common stock. It has no conversion rights or mandatory redemption features. Holders of our Series A Preferred stock are entitled to 100,000 votes for each share on all matters submitted to a stockholder vote.
 
 
Dividends
 
Since inception we have not paid any dividends on our common stock. We currently do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future on our common stock. Although we intend to retain our earnings, if any, to finance the exploration and growth of our business, our board of directors will have the discretion to declare and pay dividends in the future. Payment of dividends in the future will depend upon our earnings, capital requirements, and other factors, which our board of directors may deem relevant.
 
Warrants
 
As of May 25, 2012, we had 20,303,125 warrants to purchase 20,303,125 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.30 outstanding. 16,820,000 of these warrants are exercisable through October 28, 2016 and 3,483,125 of these warrants are exercisable through November 8, 2016. We also have outstanding warrants to purchase 150,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.25, exercisable through August 4, 2016. The exercise price of the warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and dilutive issuances.
 
We also have outstanding 500,000 warrants to purchase 500,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.15, exercisable through January 3, 2016. Additionally, we have outstanding warrants to purchase 57,143 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.21, exercisable through June 4, 2012. The exercise price of the warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and dilutive issuances.
 
We also have 10,676,875 warrants to purchase 10,676,875 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.40 outstanding. 7,793,750 of these warrants are exercisable through March 29, 2017 and 2,883,125 of these warrants are exercisable through April 3, 2017. The exercise price of the warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and dilutive issuances.

Options
 
We have no formalized stock option plan. We may in the future establish an incentive stock option plan for our directors, employees and consultants.
 
Pursuant to his employment agreement, the Company will issue options to Ermanno Santilli in the amount of 4,500,000 shares at an exercise price of $0.15 per share. The options will vest over a three year period at 375,000 shares per quarter.
 
Pursuant to his employment agreement, the Company will issue options to Scott Wainwright in the amount of 4,500,000 shares at an exercise price of $0.15 per share. The options will vest over a three year period at 375,000 shares per quarter.

As of May 25, 2012, the options to Ermanno Santilli and Scott Wainwright have not yet been issued.
  
Limitation on Directors’ Liability
 
The DGCL authorizes Delaware corporations to limit or eliminate the personal liability of their directors to them and their stockholders for monetary damages for breach of a director’s fiduciary duty of care. The duty of care requires that, when acting on behalf of the corporation, directors must exercise an informed business judgment based on all material information reasonably available to them. Absent the limitations Delaware law authorizes, directors of Delaware corporations are accountable to those corporations and their stockholders for monetary damages for conduct constituting gross negligence in the exercise of their duty of care. Delaware law enables Delaware corporations to limit available relief to equitable remedies such as injunction or rescission. Our certificate of incorporation limits the liability of our directors to us and our stockholders to the fullest extent Delaware law permits. Specifically, no director will be personally liable for monetary damages for any breach of the director’s fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability:
 
for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders;
for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;
for unlawful payments of dividends or unlawful stock repurchases or redemptions as provided in Section 174 of the DGCL; and
for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
 
This provision could have the effect of reducing the likelihood of derivative litigation against our directors and may discourage or deter our stockholders or management from bringing a lawsuit against our directors for breach of their duty of care, even though such an action, if successful, might otherwise have benefited us and our stockholders. Our bylaws provide indemnification to our officers and directors and other specified persons with respect to their conduct in various capacities. See “Indemnification of Directors and Officers.”
 
 
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers or person controlling the Company pursuant to the foregoing provisions, the Company has been informed that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.
 
Anti-Takeover Effects of Provisions of the DGCL and our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws
 
Provisions of the DGCL and our certificate of incorporation and bylaws could make it more difficult to acquire us by means of a tender offer, a proxy contest or otherwise, or to remove incumbent officers and directors. These provisions, summarized below, are expected to discourage certain types of coercive takeover practices and takeover bids that our board of directors may consider inadequate and to encourage persons seeking to acquire control of us to first negotiate with our board of directors. We believe that the benefits of increased protection of our ability to negotiate with the proponent of an unfriendly or unsolicited proposal to acquire or restructure us outweigh the disadvantages of discouraging takeover or acquisition proposals because, among other things, negotiation of these proposals could result in improved terms for our stockholders.
 
Delaware Anti-Takeover Statute. We were subject to Section 203 of the DGCL, an anti-takeover statute. In general, Section 203 of the DGCL prohibits a publicly-held Delaware corporation from engaging in a “business combination” with an “interested stockholder” for a period of three years following the time the person became an interested stockholder, unless the business combination or the acquisition of shares that resulted in a stockholder becoming an interested stockholder is approved in a prescribed manner. Generally, a “business combination” includes a merger, asset or stock sale, or other transaction resulting in a financial benefit to the interested stockholder. Generally, an “interested stockholder” is a person who, together with affiliates and associates, owns (or within three years prior to the determination of interested stockholder status did own) 15% or more of a corporation’s voting stock. The existence of this provision would be expected to have an anti-takeover effect with respect to transactions not approved in advance by the board of directors, including discouraging attempts that might result in a premium over the market price for the shares of common stock held by stockholders.
 
As of May 25, 2012, we are not subject to Section 203 of the DGCL because we do not have a class of voting stock that is listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders and we have not elected by a provision in our original certificate of incorporation to be governed by Section 203. Unless we adopt an amendment of our certificate of incorporation by action of our stockholders expressly electing not to be governed by Section 203, we would generally become subject to Section 203 of the DGCL at such time that we have a class of voting stock that is either listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders, except that the restrictions contained in Section 203 would not apply if the business combination is with an interested stockholder who became an interested stockholder before the time that we have a class of voting stock that is either listed on a national securities exchange or held of record by more than 2,000 stockholders.

We intend to list our common stock on NYSE MKT in conjunction with this offering, however, there can be no guarantee that such listing shall be achieved at any time.
 
Amendments to Our Certificate of Incorporation. Under the DGCL, the affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding shares entitled to vote thereon and a majority of the outstanding stock of each class entitled to vote thereon is required to amend a corporation’s certificate of incorporation. Under the DGCL, the holders of the outstanding shares of a class of our capital stock shall be entitled to vote as a class upon a proposed amendment, whether or not entitled to vote thereon by the certificate of incorporation, if the amendment would:
 
increase or decrease the aggregate number of authorized shares of such class;
increase or decrease the par value of the shares of such class; or
alter or change the powers, preferences or special rights of the shares of such class so as to affect them adversely.
 
If any proposed amendment would alter or change the powers, preferences or special rights of one or more series of any class of our capital stock so as to affect them adversely, but shall not so affect the entire class, then only the shares of the series so affected by the amendment shall be considered a separate class for the purposes of this provision.
 
Vacancies in the board of directors. Our bylaws provide that, subject to limitations, any vacancy occurring in our board of directors for any reason may be filled by a majority of the remaining members of our board of directors then in office, even if such majority is less than a quorum. Each director so elected shall hold office until the expiration of the term of the other directors. Each such directors shall hold office until his or her successor is elected and qualified, or until the earlier of his or her death, resignation or removal.
 
 
Special Meetings of Stockholders. Under our bylaws, special meetings of stockholders may be called at any time by our President whenever so directed in writing by a majority of the entire board of directors. Special meetings can also be called whenever one-third of the number of shares of our capital stock entitled to vote at such meeting shall, in writing, request one. Under the DGCL, written notice of any special meeting must be given not less than 10 nor more than 60 days before the date of the special meeting to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting.
 
No Cumulative Voting. The DGCL provides that stockholders are denied the right to cumulate votes in the election of directors unless our certificate of incorporation provides otherwise. Our amended and restated certificate of incorporation does not provide for cumulative voting.
 
Listing
 
Our common stock is quoted on the OTCBB under the symbol “MNGA.” In connection with this offering, we intend to submit a listing application to NYSE MKT for listing of our common stock. There is no guarantee that such listing application will approved.

In general, under Rule 144 as currently in effect, once we have been subject to public company reporting requirements for 90 days, a person (or persons whose shares are aggregated) who is not deemed to have been an affiliate of ours at any time during the three months preceding a sale, and who has beneficially owned restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 for a least six months (including any period of consecutive ownership of preceding non-affiliated holders) would be entitled to sell those shares, subject only to the availability of current public information about us. A non-affiliated person who has beneficially owned restricted securities within the meaning of Rule 144 for at least one year would be entitled to sell those shares without regard to the provisions of Rule 144.
 
 
In general, under Rule 144 as currently in effect, once we have been subject to public company reporting requirements for 90 days, our affiliates or persons selling shares on behalf of our affiliates who own shares that were acquired from us or an affiliate of ours at least six months prior to the proposed sale are entitled to sell upon expiration of the lock-up agreements described above, within any three-month period beginning 90 days after the date of this prospectus, a number of shares that does not exceed the greater of:
 
1% of the number of shares of common stock then outstanding, which will equal approximately shares immediately after this offering; or
 
the average weekly trading volume of the common stock during the four calendar weeks preceding the filing of a notice on Form 144 with respect to such sale.
 
Sales under Rule 144 by our affiliates or persons selling shares on behalf of our affiliates are also subject to certain manner of sale provisions and notice requirements and to the availability of current public information about us.

UNDERWRITING
 
The underwriter named below has agreed to buy, subject to the terms of the underwriting agreement, the number of securities listed opposite its name below. The underwriter is committed to purchase and pay for all of the securities if any are purchased. The underwriting agreement also provides that if the underwriter defaults, this offering of our securities may be terminated.

Northland Securities, Inc.
     
 
The underwriter has advised us that it proposes to offer the shares of common stock to the public at a price of $     per share. The underwriter proposes to offer the securities to be sold in this offering to certain dealers at the same price less an aggregate concession of not more than $      for each share. After the offering, these figures may be changed by the underwriter.
 
We have granted to the underwriter an option to purchase up to an additional            shares of common stock from us at the same price to the public, and with the same underwriting discount, as set forth in the table below. The underwriter may exercise this option any time during the 45-day period after the date of this prospectus, but only to cover over-allotments, if any.
 
The table below summarizes the underwriting discounts that we will pay to the underwriter. In addition to the underwriting discount, we have agreed to pay the fees and expenses of the underwriter, which may include the fees and expenses of counsel to the underwriter up to $150,000.  As additional compensation we have agreed to issue to the underwriter warrants to purchase up to a total of 5.0% of the shares of common stock sold in this offering at an exercise price of 115% of the price to the public of the shares of common stock sold in this offering. The underwriter’s warrants, which are warrants to purchase common stock, will be exercisable beginning 181 days after the closing date of this offering and ending on the fifth anniversary of the date of effectiveness of the registration statement relating to this offering. In addition, pursuant to Rule 5110(g) of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”), the underwriter’s warrants may not be sold during this offering, or sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, or hypothecated, or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put, or call transaction that would result in the effective economic disposition of the underwriters’ warrants, or the shares acquirable upon exercise thereof, by any person for a period of 180 days immediately following the effective date of the registration statement relating to this offering, except as provided in paragraph (g)(2) of Rule 5110(g) of FINRA.  The warrants, fees and expenses of the underwriter that we have agreed to reimburse are not included in the underwriting discounts set forth in the table below.
 
The underwriter has not received and will not receive from us any other item of compensation or expense in connection with this offering considered by FINRA to be underwriting compensation under its rule of fair price. The underwriting discount and other items of compensation the underwriter will receive were determined through arms’ length negotiations between us and the underwriter.

We estimate that the total expenses of the offering, excluding underwriting discounts and commissions, will be $300,000. This includes $150,000 of fees and expenses of the underwriter. These expenses are payable by us.
 
From time to time in the ordinary course of business, the underwriter and its affiliates have performed, and may in the future perform, various investment banking and other financial services for us for which they received, or will receive, customary fees and reimbursement of expenses.
 
We entered into an engagement letter with the underwriter, which may be terminated by either party subject to certain restrictions, pursuant to which the underwriter provides us with certain financial advisory services.  In connection with the engagement, the underwriter served as placement agent for our March 28, 2012 and April 3, 2012 private placement of 19,412,500 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase 9,706,250 shares common stock at a price of $0.20 per unit, for which the underwriter received cash compensation in the amount of $271,775, warrants to purchase 970,625 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.40 per share and reimbursed the underwriter for $51,250 of its accountable expenses in connection with the private placement.  The exercise price of the warrants is subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and are on the same terms as the warrants issued to investors in the private placement.  These warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the original issuance date.  Any securities that are unregistered and acquired by any underwriter and related persons during 180 days prior to the filing date, or acquired after the required filing date of the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement is a part and deemed to be underwriting compensation by FINRA, and any securities excluded from underwriting compensation, shall not be sold during the offering, or sold, transferred, assigned, pledged, or hypothecated, or be the subject of any hedging, short sale, derivative, put, or call transaction that would result in the effective economic disposition of the securities by any person for a period of 180 days immediately following the effective date or commencement of sales of the public offering, subject to certain exceptions.  The underwriter also served as placement agent for our October 28, 2011 and November 8, 2011 private placement of 19,662,500 shares of common stock and 19,662,500 warrants to purchase common stock, for which the underwriter received cash compensation in the amount of $220,220, warrants to purchase 983,152 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.30 per share and reimbursed the underwriter for $13,500 of its accountable expenses in connection with the private placement.  We also issued the placement agent warrants to purchase up to 150,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $0.25 per share as a retainer for providing us with financial advisory services.  These warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the original issuance date. The exercise prices of these warrants are subject to adjustment upon certain events, such as stock splits, combinations, dividends, distributions, reclassifications, mergers or other corporate change and are on the same terms as the warrants issued to investors in the private placement.
 
We and the selling stockholders have agreed to indemnify the underwriter against certain liabilities, including civil liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments that the underwriter may be required to make in respect of those liabilities.
 
Our directors and officers, as well as the selling stockholders, have agreed not to offer, sell, agree to sell, directly or indirectly, or otherwise dispose of any shares of common stock or any securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of common stock without the prior written consent of the underwriter for a period of 90 days after the date of this prospectus supplement.  These “lock-up” agreements cover approximately an aggregate of 96,321,001 shares of our common stock and are subject to limited exceptions.
 
We have agreed to certain restrictions on our ability to sell additional shares of our common stock for a period of 90 days after the date of this prospectus supplement. We have agreed not to offer, sell, agree to sell, directly or indirectly, or otherwise issue or dispose of, any shares of common stock, securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of common stock, or any related security or instrument, without the prior written consent of the underwriter. The agreement is subject to limited exceptions.
 
To facilitate the offering, the underwriter may engage in transactions that stabilize, maintain or otherwise affect the price of the common stock during and after the offering. Specifically, the underwriter may over-allot or otherwise create a short position in the common stock for its own account by selling more shares than have been sold to it by us. The underwriter may elect to cover any such short position by purchasing shares of common stock in the open market. In addition, the underwriter may stabilize or maintain the price of the common stock by bidding for or purchasing shares of common stock in the open market and may impose penalty bids. If penalty bids are imposed, selling concessions allowed to broker-dealers participating in the offering are reclaimed if shares of common stock previously distributed in the offering are repurchased, whether in connection with stabilization transactions or otherwise. The effect of these transactions may be to stabilize or maintain the market price of the common stock at a level above that which might otherwise prevail in the open market. The imposition of a penalty bid may also affect the price of the common stock to the extent that it discourages resales of the common stock. The magnitude or effect of any stabilization or other transactions is uncertain. These transactions may be effected on the NYSE MKT, the OTCBB or otherwise and, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time.
 
 
In connection with this offering, the underwriter (and selling group members) may also engage in passive market making transactions in the common stock on the OTCBB or NYSE MKT. Passive market making consists of displaying bids on the OTCBB or NYSE MKT limited by the prices of independent market makers and effecting purchases limited by those prices in response to order flow. Rule 103 of Regulation M promulgated by the SEC limits the amount of net purchases that each passive market maker may make and the displayed size of each bid. Passive market making may stabilize the market price of the common stock at a level above that which might otherwise prevail in the open market and, if commenced, may be discontinued at any time.
 
The underwriter may facilitate the marketing of this offering online directly or through one of its affiliates. In those cases, prospective investors may view offering terms and a prospectus online and place orders online or through their financial advisors.

MagneGas Corporation
Tarpon Springs, Florida

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of MagneGas Corporation as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.  

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required at this time, to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal controls over financial reporting.   Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audit provided a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, based on our audit, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America
