THE JOBLESS RECOVERY: SIX YEARS AND COUNTING
BRADENTON, Fla., Jan. 15, 2014 -- A new twist on the previously reported CIHT power cell developed by Dr. Randell Mills at BlackLight Power in Cranbury, N.J., may be the game-changer that upends the entire world of energy, fuels and transportation, a company press release said Tuesday.
"Using a proprietary solid fuel technology, a liter of BlackLight power source can output as much power as a central power generation plant exceeding the entire power of the four former reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the site of one of the worst nuclear disasters in history," the company said.
"Our safe, non-polluting power-producing system catalytically converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a non-polluting product, lower-energy state hydrogen called “Hydrino," the company said.
The lower state of energy contained in a device just one cubic foot in size can create as much power as the four nuclear reactors at Fukushima that failed two years ago in a catastrophic meltdown. The unit is fueled by water and is built from commonly available materials that are not in short supply.
"Simply replacing the consumed H2O regenerates the fuel. Using readily-available components, BlackLight has developed a system engineering design of an electric generator that is closed except for the addition of H2O fuel and generates 10 million watts of electricity, enough to power ten thousand homes. Remarkably, the device is less than a cubic foot in volume. To protect its innovations and inventions, multiple worldwide patent applications have been filed on BlackLight’s proprietary technology," the Jan. 14 press release said.
The company plans a demonstration of the power breakthrough at its New Jersey plant at 11am ET on January 28, 2014, in Cranbury - a community only a few miles from the New Jersey laboratories of Nicola Tesla and Thomas Edison and the hot fusion research laboratories at Princeton University.
"Applications and markets for the SF-CIHT cell extend across the global power spectrum, including thermal, stationary electrical power, motive, and defense," BlackLight said. "Given the independence from existing infrastructure, grid in the case of electricity and fuels in the case of motive power, the SF-CIHT power source is a further game changer for all forms of transportation: automobile, freight trucks, rail, marine, aviation, and aerospace in that the power density is one million times that of the engine of a Formula One racer, and ten million times that of a jet engine.
"The SF-CIHT cell uses cheap, abundant, nontoxic, commodity chemicals, with no apparent long-term supply issues that might preclude commercial, high volume manufacturing. The projected cost of the SF-CIHT cell is between $10 and $100 per kilowatt, compared to over one hundred times that for conventional power sources of electricity," the company press release said.
Major research organizations have backed Mills' findings in the face of criticism from experts like Dr. Stanley Chu, former head of the Dept. of Energy, who advised investors to avoid the company and instead has supported the so-far fruitless research into hot fusion that has consumed $60 billion in research money in the past two decades.
BlackLight Power is a privately held company that gets no support from the government, but has been tasked by NASA with using its technology to fuel rockets for space travel.
"BlackLight’s results of multiples of the maximum theoretical energy release for representative solid fuels was replicated at Perkin Elmer’s Field Application Laboratory at their facility using their commercial instrument. Moreover, our advanced CIHT electrochemical cell was independently replicated offsite as well," the company said.
"“We independently validated BlackLight’s results offsite by an unrelated highly qualified third party," said Dr. Ethirajulu Dayalan, Engineering Fellow, of The ENSER Corporation. "We confirmed that hydrino was the product of any excess electricity observed by three analytical tests on the cell products, and determined that BlackLight Power had achieved fifty times higher power density with stabilization of the electrodes from corrosion.”
It is unclear how quickly the federal government, the State of New Jersey and private industry will move to adopt the new technology, but at a minimum it can provide a substantial competitive edge over other countries that do not have it.
The technology is also likely to upend the energy business, since a single CIHT cell of the earlier kind was capable of powering an automobile 1,500 miles on a single liter (about a quart) of water, scientists at several leading institutions confirmed.
