International LENR Patent Granted

A company called Industrial Heat just received an international patent for LENR. During October 2014’s independent verification of their LENR device, called an E-Cat, by PhDs and Professors at the University of Bologna, the device was run for 32 days continuously without stopping, producing over  2 MWh of heat energy and a net energy gain of 1.5 MWh from just 1 gram of hydrogen, in a device weighing less than 500 grams. The hydrogen had not run out by the time they manually stopped the reaction to conclude the tests.

E-Cat – An Alumina LENR device weighing only 452 grams but producing 1.6 GWh/kg of heat energy from 1 gram of hydrogen based fuel.

Total electrical input powering the reactor over the 32 days was 0.6 MWh, total heat energy produced was 2.1 MWh. Undoubtedly signifying that a nuclear reaction was taking place. The device has an amazing power to weight ratio of 1.6 GWh/kg but could be way more if the reaction was allowed to run until all the fuel was consumed.

    The convincing proof of LENR would be a self-sustaining device. If this outputs three times as much heat as electrical input then a self-contained run should be feasible with a reasonably efficient heat engine and alternator. The high temperature also lends itself to relatively efficient heat engines, more so in fact then traditional nuclear reactors. I guess there are costs involved in doing so, particularly in building a small but efficient steam or Brayton cycle powerplant. Not to mention safety issues with superheated steam if that route is taken. I’m sure that is the way to attract investors, a model powerplant running on the bench says ‘Safe investment’ far better than a thousand pages of performance graphs.

    You’re right. A self sustaining device makes sense considering the COP (3) their getting.

    Yes, this is the idea of Jean-Francois Geneste of Airbus Innovation
    http://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/2173-Airbus-LENR-The-Challenge/
    to use a thermal engine of 30-38% efficiency to loop a COP >3 LENr device.
    He announced the challenge.

    the problems is that it needs a reliable stable device that have COP>3, and most inventors having that start by raising fund and going dark until they go on the market…

    Only someone “benevolent” (or a replicator of a patented technology) would do that.

    Sad but true.
