Brillouin Energy has entered into its first international licensing agreement covering three nations.  The firm is involved in on-going negotiations for other potential international partners.  This makes the second Cold Fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) Lattice Assisted Nuclear Reaction (LANR) and Brillouin’s Controlled Electron Capture Reaction (CECR) idea to attract commercial interest.  The other being the Rossi led effort.

For a first person view of the news pull the YouTube up to 30 minutes and listen to the Robert Godes and Robert George interview.

Brillouin’s CECR starts by introducing hydrogen into a suitable piece of nickel (or other metal with the correct internal geometry).  A proprietary electronic pulse generator then creates stress points in the metal where the applied energy is focused into very small spaces.  This concentrated energy allows some of the protons in the hydrogen to capture an electron, and thus become a neutron. This step converts a small amount of energy into mass in the neutron.

More pulses both create more neutrons and allow neutrons to combine with some of the hydrogen to form deuterium (a form of hydrogen with both a proton and a neutron in the nucleus).  This ‘combination’ step releases energy.  The process continues, again, with some neutrons combining with deuterium to form tritium (hydrogen with one proton and two neutrons).  This step releases still more energy.  The process continues with some neutrons combining with the tritium to form quadrium (hydrogen with one proton and three neutrons).  Since quadrium is not stable, it quickly turns into helium in a process that releases more energy than it took to create all the preceding steps.

Brillouin’s power equation is 2.4 units of energy going in and 24 units coming out.

The Brillouin CECR is thought to be quite versatile.  The released energy is initially absorbed by the metal element, and then made available as heat.  At lower temperatures, this generated heat can be used directly for space heating, hot water and similar applications. Further refinements of the Brillouin Energy system will produce the higher temperatures needed for electrical generation, dry industrial stream and industrial processes.

Using CECR is very light on hydrogen resource demands.  The amount of hydrogen in a 8-oz (237 ml) glass of water holds the energy equivalent of the gasoline needed to fill up 7903 Ford Explorers or to power 3279 average homes for a month. The nickel or other metal element acts only as a host and catalyst, and is not consumed.

The CECR is different than the Rossi device that reportedly needs a “catalyst” switch out at about six months of operation.

Big investment money is lining up.  Brillouin has raised about $3 million in funding.  A “second stage” $20M investment conditional agreement from Sunrise Securities of New York for $20 million is now in place.

The Sunrise deal offers to purchase 15% of Brillouin post-money, conditional on Brillouin moving ahead with and completing successful testing of its CECR at SRI.

The Sunrise folks are also linking the investment to Brillouin striking preliminary agreement to acquire at least one “stranded asset” conventional fuel source small scale (5-10MW) power plant, with existing conventional co-generation equipment, and replacing (retrofitting) the old fuel source with Brillouin’s CECR, together with renewal of an operating power purchase or steam heat contract with an industrial or a utility.

The $20M Sunrise offer would fund full commercial launch of this merchant power supply retrofit business model after successful testing of the CECR called NHB™ at SRI.

Chances are the Brillouin team will get to commercial scale.  Key expert affiliates of Sunrise includes a former director of the California Public Utilities Commission independent power division who has already provided potential acquisition candidates, available for negligible cost, with power contracts already in place.

Looks like a done deal.  Cold Fusion is almost here. If Brillouin can scale up.

Your humble writer suspects the Brillouin team will scale up and do it in a successful and classy fashion.

Rah! Brillouin!

    Sounds like they have a scientific explanation of how it is working. I hope they are correct!

    These guys seem very much more square on than either Rossi or Defkalion. Power to ’em.

    These are nice templates, i like themes. Thanks’

    Looks like Brillouin Energy has a funding gap between the 3 million they spend on scaling up the model and getting control of the reaction and engineering their commercial model for real world installation and testing. Getting funding at this point should be very attractive to the right sized investor. Problem is the really big boys have put their money on a more exotic form of Tri-Alpha fusion reactors and Plasma Fusion.

    LENR is a Black Swan event that appears to have totally surpassed their expectations or.. they have something else already and don’t care. In any case they are not acting like companies that want to get “there” sooner than later.

    Cold Fusion is like SO cool!
    It runs on pure BULLSHIT!!

    Keef, in your case, I can see why you would be interested in using that fuel.

    I have not heard much about Sunrise Securities, the underwriter—if Brillouin had a compelling case, why has no large investor, or better-known underwriter, stepped up with investment capital?

    You mean the invention of the century, maybe of all time, cannot raise $20 million?

    There are large houses that sell for $20 million. There are baseball players who play one year for that money. And in this nation—or the whole world—no one wants to cough up $20 million for Brillouin?

    “Brillouin’s power equation is 2.4 units of energy going in and 24 units coming out.”–NEAF.

    Is that 10 to 1–why not say so?

    So here os the story: A group has invented a machine that will generate 10 units of power for every one unit pumped into it. And they cannot find $20 million in funding.

    You know, I want to believe, but….

    These guys have done virtually nothing in the past year. Similar articles and reports were common a year ago for example:

    Note that the same spelling errors in the same diagram are still present a year later. If you can’t spell “hyrogen” or “pluse”, maybe you shouldn’t work with dangerous devices using them.

    Anyway, no independent tests, no confirmation, no clean experiments, no publications, no nothing except claims. You believe them?

    Sunrise Securities is a solid investment Company.

    What a crock of crap. This is just more propaganda unless they are willing to open the thing up to third party independent testing.

    Notice how Rossi continues to delay, delay, delay!

    If you think one minute these people are out to help the world with free energy, you are a dumbass. The people that know this technology works will stop at nothing to keep it from (YOU) the people at all costs. Until I’m proved wrong, go straight to hell

  13. Craig B on November 20, 2013 2:17 AM

    BFast. Given up on Rossi, then? Power to ya!

    John. We don’t go to hell until you’re proved wrong. You got to prove yourself right to get people to believe what you say. And if you don’t accept that, off you go to hell until I’m proved wrong.

    Yet an other group of gullible investors is about to kiss their money goodbye.
