Brillouin Energy Corporation (BEC) technology uses the hydrogen in ordinary water in a nuclear process that produces no hazardous waste. The process stimulates a Controlled Electron Capture Reaction (CECR) in a catalyst. This process creates low energy neutrons. The neutrons generate heat as they are captured, building heavier elements.
NOTE- This group is using a process with some similarities to Rossi energy catalyzer. They are not getting as much energy gain (a little more than double right now, but are targeting getting more than triple as they improve the current system). They are working at a few hundred watts (so about ten times less than what Rossi is claiming).
Brillouin’s proprietary electronic pulse generator promotes proton-electron capture reactions. The pulses change some of the protons in metal to neutrons, and surrounding nuclei subsequently captures these produced neutrons. The subsequent neutron capture reactions generate heat, and because the pulses are controlled the thermal output from Brillouin’s proprietary technology safely provides clean heat on demand.
* Quantum Fusion theory indicates reaction will scale with increasing temperature and pressure.
* Existing system has demonstrated over 2 Pout/Pin less tha 3. (getting more than twice the power out as they are putting in.)
* Next round will demonstrate greater than 3X.
* Next round expected to prove technology will have industrial applications.
Information collected from Brillouin’s first round of experiments demonstrated that the proprietary electronic pulse generator produced excess heat when applied to nickel and to palladium. Excess heat is the amount of thermal energy that exceeds the energy used to drive the pulse generator and its associated electronics. Second round experiments conducted in a high temperature and high-pressure test cell confirm that excess heat is produced on demand in repeatable amounts. Presently the company’s pulse generator is being studied and tested at SRI, International in Menlo Park California.
The US commercial boiler market is $1.1 billion and growing. The business model addresses the market by providing economic and environmentally sustainable solutions. The technology provides heat on demand without emissions and avoids other costs associated with fossil fuels. Brillouin’s value proposition eliminates need for fuel purchases.
Brillouin has entered into its first international licensing agreement covering three nations and is involved in on-going negotiations for other potential international partners.
