Brillouin Energy announced that it has obtained a significant Patent associated with its design for a potentially world-changing “Hydrogen Hot Tube”, or “HHT™” reactor system from the European Union Patent Office. The Patent, which has been issued for a crucial component of the HHT reactor system, the “Controlled Electron Capture Reaction” (CECR) for “Energy Generation Apparatus and Method”, is dated September 26, 2018.
It’s been a big year for low-energy nuclear reactions. LENRs, as they’re known, are a fringe research topic that some physicists think could explain the results of an infamous experiment nearly 30 years ago that formed the basis for the idea of cold fusion. That idea didn’t hold up, and only a handful of researchers around the world have continued trying to understand the mysterious nature of the inconsistent, heat-generating reactions that had spurred those claims.
