BLP SunCell Test to Destruction (Video)

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting this video from Brilliant Light Power which I had not seen before. It shows a SunCell being activated by a worker, and very soon a hole in the side is burned through.

This is the BLP’s description of what is shown:

“The SunCell reactor was at 30°C when the reaction was initiated. The reactor comprised boron nitride molten metal reservoirs and a ceramic-coated stainless steel (SS) dome. The molten metal was gallium that was injected with a SS electromagnetic pump injector inside of the reactor to hit the other boron nitride reservoir with pooled gallium that served as the counter electrode. The gas was over-atmospheric argon-H2 of a non-combustible stoichiometry. The source of O to form HOH catalyst was trace gallium oxide. The hydrino reaction caused the pressure and temperature in the SS dome to go vertical. The hydrino reaction can develop explosive power (note that the blow off valve was activated at ignition). The jet was the hydrino plasma that breached the wall that was melted by the heat from the hydrino reaction. The source of power is H2 to molecular hydrino H2(1/4) + 50 MJ catalyzed the HOH catalyst. H2 goes in and H2(1/4) and massive power comes out. The H2 can be obtained from the electrolysis of water using 1/200th the energy released in the reaction of the hydrogen to hydrino.”

You can see before the ignition that the area where the heat is concentrated is already discolored, not sure what that means.

Laser-Induced Nuclear Processes in Ultra-Dense Hydrogen Take Place in Small Non-superfluid HN(0) Clusters

Abstract: Charged and neutral kaons are formed by impact of pulsed lasers on ultra-dense hydrogen H(0). This superfluid material H(0) consists of clusters of various forms, mainly of the chain-cluster type H2N. Such clusters are not stable above the transition temperature from superfluid to normal matter. In the case studied here, this transition is at 525 K for D(0) on an Ir target, as reported previously. Mesons are formed both below and above this temperature. Thus, the meson formation is not related to the long chain-clusters H2N but to the small non-superfluid cluster types H3(0) and H4(0) which still exist on the target above the transition temperature. The nuclear processes forming the kaons take place in such clusters when they are transferred to the lowest s = 1 state with H–H distance of 0.56 pm. At this short distance, nuclear processes are expected within 1 ns. The superfluid chain-cluster phase probably has no direct importance for the nuclear processes. The clusters where the nuclear processes in H(0) take place are thus quite accurately identified.

H3(0) is a flat triangular 3 atom molecule

Brilliant Light Power Publishes 4th Quarter Update

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that Brilliant Light Power has posted a 4th quarter Update on its website here:

https://brilliantlightpower.com/fourth-quarter-2018-update/

Actually there are two updates, a business one and an analytical (scientific) one. In the business update they talk about the evolution of the SunCell and state that they are now working on a quartz version whose construction the have outsourced to a vendor.

They have also posted a new video, linked here on their Twitter account, in which they state they have a planned meeting with scientists from the Department of Defense.

Possible ‘Strange Radiation’ Detection From LION Four Reactor (Bob Greenyer Video)

Bob Greenyer has made a new video in which he reports on testing on the LION Four reactor he has received from LENR researcher LION. He has done testing with a cosmic ray finder and reports in this video that he has detected nine detections, of which he states that six are “interesting”.

Rossi: E-Cats Can Now be Made Automatically

Gerard McEk sent some interesting questions to Andrea Rossi today, and received the following responses.

Gerard McEk
December 5, 2018 at 8:24 AM
Dear Andrea,
Just a few questions:
1. Can you tell us if you are already able to produce the ECats automatically?
AR: yes.
2. By when do you intend to start production, or has production started already?
AR: the production will follow the demand.
3. Will you also produce the ECat controllers in your production plants?
AR: yes.
4. I have always thought that the 40 MW unit is a single unit that will produce electricity. Now I understand that there will be multiple smaller units that will be located at different sites. Is the latter the right interpretation?
AR: yes.
5. Do they intend to produce electricity with the (collection of) 40 MW unit(s)?
AR: this is up to the Client
6. How much percent of the 40 MW units(s) is ready?
AR: this information is not public.
Thank you for answering our questions.
Kind regards, Gerard

Rossi here says that they “can” make E-Cats automatically, but it doesn’t sound like they are cranking them out and storing them in anticipation of high demand in the future. It sounds almost like they will be made on a “just-in-time” basis, depending on how orders start coming in. And at this point we don’t have any idea of what demand will be like. There is not much in the way of pre-publicity or advertising at this point. So far, awareness of the E-Cat is basically among the relatively small community of LENR followers, and by word of mouth among those who are close to Andrea Rossi and his current group of clients, which I guess at this point is still very small.

Russian Proatom Article on Changing Attitudes to LENR

Russian website Proatom, which covers news and information connected with the nuclear industry has a featured article titled ”
Industrial power plant on low-threshold nuclear reactions – the reality” written by Vitaly Uzikov, an engineer at the Russian State Scientific Center Research Institute of Atomic Reactors.

The article finds the recent IEEE Spectrum article about LENR to be a significant event, because it takes the field seriously and it is apparently read by 385,000 engineers around the world.

The article is a broad review of significant happenings in the LENR field, discussing such things US Department of Defense involvement in LENR research over the years, and Japanese governmental support of LENR research.

The article also looks forward to the announced commercial presentation of Andre Rossi on January 31, 2019 where Rossi has said that an E-Cat will be shown in operation.

Uzikov chooses to use the term Low Threshold Nuclear Reaction. He writes:

“By the way, the very abbreviation LENR ( Low – Energy Nuclear Reactions ) causes specialists a reasonable rejection, and they suggest calling the observed nuclear phenomena not low-energy , but low-threshold , but the generally accepted term LENR will be used hereinafter if it is not very accurate.”

LENR Claimed to Work –Future Cities About to Blossom (JD Sweeney)

The following post has been submitted by JD Sweeney — his original post is at: https://neuenergy.blogspot.com/2018/11/lenr-claimed-to-work.html

Continued use of fossil fuels and nuclear plants are the biggest risks to human health and safety. Yet those invested in fossil fuels and radioactive nuclear have trouble in acknowledging the real hazards involved with polluted air and water and inevitable aged reactor failure.

In any case, to avoid the next disaster, many nations have to catch up in research, engineering and deployment of cheap, non-polluting and radiation-free energy sources. On-site generation of electricity and heat, called LENR, suitable for agriculture, industry, residential complexes and unlimited-range vehicles is now being engineered for farms and future cities.

“On-site Ecat power, offers a measure of energy independence, and avoids the huge losses from distribution power line grids. In the near future the Ecat could help provide desalination, and very importantly provide the energy needed (heating and cooling/electricity) for greenhouse crops, hydroponics and dwellings.”

“LENR Cities are Ultra Designed Environments, totally self-sustainable with agriculture and independent energy supply …incorporating state of the art infrastructure and ideal ways of building homes and communities …which attracts, investment, tourism…”

LENR cities will likely blossom first in oil-rich desert nations, followed by progressive Asia, Australia and Scandinavia. Hot and arid Arizona/New Mexico will likely be among the first movers, with hurricane-prone Caribbean nations gradually rebuilding their energy infrastructure with LENR and micro-grids. In much of Europe and the rest of North America we will likely see a few LENR subdivisions plus retro-fits of coal-fired generating plants and even some Alpine resorts energized by the New Fire.

For the environment and humanity, legacy energy infrastructures are costly and destructive; by comparison, LENR is benign and inexpensive. What the world now needs is the proliferation of pollution and radiation-free energy. Yet, the UN’s nuclear watch-dog acquiesces to proliferation of nuclear electricity generation, even though the uranium process is used by rogue nations in production of nuclear missiles.

The outcry by the scientific establishment, “LENR is not possible,” gradually shifts to “I always believed in the idea.” Yet, the nuclear industry and its regulators persist with the claim that old nuclear has the cleanest and safest track record of any power sources. Given the imminence of the LENR alternative, the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency — as it moves to reinvent its self — might plan on sponsoring a few LENR-powered communities in the poorest African countries and in war-torn Near-east.

Early implementation of LENR provides the means to arrest rising temperatures, rising coastal waters, air pollution, hunger, and in turn diminish the threat of nuclear war. Yet, we again celebrate New Year’s optimism by dancing on Titanic’s tilting deck.

And, the children cry, “I’m hungry, Mama. How high is the water, Papa?”

Sober Holidays to all, and to all a good hike.

Rossi: 27 kW E-Cat SK Weighs 11 kg

Andrea Rossi continues to provide a few new details regarding his E-Cats. He has stated that the E-Cat SK that is currently heating a factor somewhere in a cooler part of the United States is rated at 27 kW, and is currently running continuously.

One reader of the Journal of Nuclear Physics asked him about the weight of this E-Cat and he responded:

“Without the boiler the Ecat weights 1 kg, the Control Panel 10 kg”

As far as the physical dimensions of the E-Cat SK, Rossi has stated in the past that it is about twice the size of the E-Cat QX model that he demonstrated in Stockholm last November.

In some more recent comments from the JONP, Rossi has written that the client that has ordered 40 MW worth of E-Cat plants, that this 40 MW will not be a single plant, but 40 MW spread out over multiple geographic locations.

When asked about making electricity with the E-Cat, Rossi commented yesterday:

“Andrea Rossi
December 2, 2018 at 8:11 PM
Lars:
Today we make only heat, but soon we will have clients that will couple Ecats with turbines coupled with alternators.
Warm Regards,
A.R.”

Coca-Cola and the E-Cat

Andrea Rossi has made the following comment in response to a question about whether he thought the presentation on January 31st will satisfy those skeptical of the E-Cat.

Andrea Rossi
December 1, 2018 at 11:21 AM
Giuseppina Soden:
No, it will not. To avoid disappointments, I want one more time explain what is a commercial presentation: we are not presenting to the scientific community a theory or a prototype to be tested and validated, corroborated by full scientific information. We are presenting a product to sell a service to our actual and potential clients. We have to show that our product make profits.
Our position is very similar to a model that is taken from a completely different world, but helps to understand: observe the Coca Cola policy: they never gave any hint about their industrial secret. I visited the Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta where they conserve in a well guarded safe the secret part of their IP. They advertise Coca Cola not as a food scientifically proven as good, they sell and advertise ( with extremely sophysticated means ) the Coca Cola product as a good drink that gives a good taste to their Customers at a price accessible to everybody. This is exactly what we are going to do: give the taste of the profits that will be generated by the use of the Ecat. This will disappoint them who will look for scientific information, but our target of the presentation are the Clients. By the way, they will not be going to buy the Ecat, but just to buy the heat she will generate. We will offer the image of the Ecat SK in operation, will show how much energy we are consuming, it will be, I think, very interesting, but, I promise, disappointing for anybody that looks for information to compete.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Coke’s trade secret is often cited as being somewhat analogous to Rossi’s attitude towards his IP. Rossi’s plan is to sell a good energy source that satisfies the customer’s need for energy at a price accessible to them, and to do this he doesn’t need to provide customers with hidden ingredients that are producing the heat. However the analogy is not perfect, because anyone can buy a bottle of Coca-Cola and spend time and money to analyze the makeup of the drink using sophisticated equipment to try and discover the secrets of its makeup, and make a product like Pepsi, which may not be a perfect replication of Coke, but close enough for someone like me. (I can’t tell the difference between the two). Rossi is doing all he can to try and prevent any such analysis from taking place by putting physical and digital barriers in place.

What could the LENR market be in 2019? (aricimello)

The following has been submitted by aricemello.

What could the LENR market be in 2019? (aricimello)

Andrea Rossi will sell heat only to industrialists and under his strict control.

Is it to repay his creditors all the money he has invested?

Is it to avoid copies of his technology?

BLP seems to be the only one able to provide all forms of energy to a large market …
And to quickly draw something to repay its creditors and self-finance.

Who will win the most, Andrea Rossi, BLP and/or energy consumers?
