Brillouin Energy’s unique form of LENR, a Controlled Electron Capture Reaction, generates a reaction that produces excess thermal energy by using very small amounts of hydrogen, nickel and electricity for inputs.
- Hydrogen in the form of either a wet electrolyte, or as a gas, is loaded inside a pressure vessel with a highly engineered metallic core constructed from nickel.
- Electrical charges from Brillouin Energy Corp.’s proprietary Q-Pulse™ generator are passed through the pressure vessel, resulting in a compressed lattice within the engineered constrained system.
- Mass is created and a proton is converted to a neutron, causing a tremendous loss of energy in the system. 1H (protium) is converted to 2H (deuterium), 2H (deuterium) is converted to 3H (tritium) and 3H (tritium) is converted to 4H (quatrium). This results in net energy out as the 4H (quatrium) rapidly beta decays to a release of (largely) heat, plus a tiny amount of 4He (helium) into the system. This CECR process effectively liberates more energy than it took to create all the preceding steps, on an energy density level equivalent in scope to nuclear fission, but without the pollution.
- This CECR process continues billions of times per second creating a safe, reliable, and continuous heat source, leading to years of potential unattended operation and no (zero) pollutants of any kind.
