Brillouin Approach to LENR: Working With Los Alamos Labs

1 Aug 2011 Caution to Readers: LENR technology is unproven, let alone the underlying science. If it is eventually found that a commercially useful amount of excess heat is generated by LENR devices, there will still be a significant "shaking out" period of time before it is clear which developers of the technology will be successful in the long run. Before investing in any of the ventures claiming to produce significant amounts of excess heat via LENRs, be sure to evaluate the companies and the technologies thoroughly. The blog postings at Al Fin Energy dealing with approaches such as LENR, Blacklight Power, etc. are not meant as investment advisories.
The newest device began operating in October of last year and is a pressurized nickel-hydrogen system that has allowed superior calorimetry measurements. According to the Early Phase 2 Data Report, this cell generated excess heat output greater than 100% in February of this year.

Robert Godes of Brillouin Energy discusses his company's LENR technology, and the ways in which it is superior to the Rossi/Focardi approach which is being commercialised by Defkalion in Greece.
CFN You are also using nickel-hydrogen system for your reactor. How does your design and process differ from Andrea Rossi’s?

REG The IP [Intellectual Property] I filed in 1995 includes some aspects of what Rossi is doing, but there are problems in trying to move the technology he is developing into production. He may have trouble meeting his deadline for the 1MW reactor as it could be difficult transferring the technology to other licensees for production.

He had a smiler problem with a potentially great technology doing direct thermal to electrical conversion. The manpower needed to produce and tweak Rossi units will limit profit margins. He would have a much easier time doing small units consisting of single devices for consumers, but insurance companies will not allow home use due to safety issues. The safety issues with the Rossi device will not likely have to do with radiation. Brillouin Energy Corp. (BEC) technology will be more reliable making it the market winner. Safety issue #1: we use the hydrogen out of ordinary water (H2O) in the form of water.

The technology BEC is developing will be easier to manufacture and transfer to licensees for market penetration and get approval for commercial and consumer use. I have significant experience in moving products from engineering to production with involvement in some products being produced at more than 100K units / year.

We only started working with the pressurized unit in Q2 2010. However we have already identified a large number of the variables that need to be controlled and how to control them. When we start production I expect it will be a much smoother ramp up than what Rossi is facing right now. _ColdFusion_via_NBF

Godes suggests that Andrea Rossi's device is successful at producing excess heat via LENR's (low energy nuclear reactions), but he feels that the Rossi / Focardi approach is technologically inferior to the Brillouin approach, and is unlikely to be ultimately successful in the marketplace -- when forced to compete against more efficient and reliable alternative LENR devices.

Once Brillouin's technology is confirmed by Los Alamos labs, Godes should have no trouble acquiring investors for the company.
