One of the most significant challenges that we have to face in the course of this century is to develop a strategically well thought through concept to provide energy sustainability for the industrial civilisation. Here, the main issue is the search for a potential clean energy source that, on the one hand, ensures the economy to grow and, on the other hand may help confront climate change.
From the first beginning our company was found, we regarded Low Energy Nuclear Reactions as one of the main research topics on which to direct our specific attention. The idea is, to enhance nuclear fusion/reactions at room temperature by electrochemically loading deuterium into the palladium metal lattice. Our aim is to develop a device that produces enormous amount of excess energy running on heavy water as fuel.
To make “cold fusion” work, means to deeply investigate every single parameter related to this project, but also to extract the key aspects that to our knowledge are worthwhile to focus on to make nuclear fusion/reactions reproducible. Of first priority was the study of how hydrogen/deuterium enter the palladium bulk, occupy interstitial sites inside the metal lattice and cause nuclear fusion/reactions effects. To understand this process, we made advantageous use of the nanotechnology with which, based on our professional experience, we were able to easily fabricate metals on nanoscale. Using this approach, we had better insight to distinguish between minor and major factors responsible for LENR to work reproducible. Once this process has been fully investigated and comprehensively worked out, we will follow a mechanism applicable as recipe to turn on nuclear fusion/reactions as we like.
Of considerable interest is the use of metals significantly cheaper than palladium that enable low cost manufacture. This all will lead us to the potential to fabricate a device that may provide energy sustainability in the future.
