Excerpt from speech given on GREEN LEADERS SUMMIT 2013 – Sydney, Australia
In an ideal world, hydrogen would be made available through the splitting of water into its constituent elements, drawing on renewable energy sources.
Such a process would be both sustainable and carbon neutral.
Hydrogen bond with oxygen in water makes an extremely strong connection. The splitting of water via conventional means is a highly energy intensive process – we basically need much more energy to produce hydrogen, than we can claim back through combustion or electrochemistry.
The enormous energy waste comes with the price tag of the final product, which cannot compete with traditional fuel, and this is the major problem with existing technologies.
One of the main problems associated with hydrogen production through the energy conversion process from a chemical point of view, is kinetic limitation.
The conclusion would be that we have to change physical properties of the medium, in order to efficiently generate hydrogen from it.
Hope Cell Technology represents a pioneering path to the new technology of extracting hydrogen from water, or hydrocarbon medium via an energy efficient method.
The name Hope Cell stands for hydrogen oxygen plasma energy cell.
The Hope Cell design is based on several scientific research principles which have shown results of hydrogen generation in excess of more than 300% better efficiency compared to electrolysis.
Those experiments have had several major limitations. Impressive results were only achieved in the spontaneous bursts for short periods of time, they were not repeatable, and were without any usable viability.
How is Hope Cell addressing these issues?
Hope Cell applies plasma in order to provide the optimal temperature range and eliminate kinetic limitations. In addition, plasma changes the state of matter where physical properties align in the favour of hydrogen isolation. Unique plasma management methods overcome problems of unpredictable intermittent operation.
Hydrogen generation results in affordable, user friendly, viable conversion of energy.
Hope Cell has been designed to trigger and enhance hydrogen exothermal reaction, which happens under certain conditions, where surface spot temperatures on a nano dimensional scale reach over 30000C.
This additional, highly energised emission, results in elevated atomic hydrogen isolation by syncing into molecular dipole frequency, where breakage of cluster bonds is initiated and maintained in a run-off process.
The result is the most advanced energy efficiency – several times higher, compared to technologies used today. It represents a practical break–through in the vision of using “0” carbon emissions in order to produce hydrogen as an energy source and energy carrier.
Such a reaction has recently been recognized through published papers from NASA – American space agency, which prove that the effect has been constantly researched since the 1990s. It has been labelled as a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction.
It is a fact that a great amount of research and development, followed by an even bigger amount of capital, has been invested toward atomic mechanism research by the military and civilian nuclear energy development. Now, it is time to admit – there are parts of the atomic mechanisms which were missed.
NASA just recently received a US government grant to further research and apply Low Energy Nuclear Reaction to propulsion engines on planes. http://coldfusionnow.org/nasa-lenr-aircraft-and-spaceplanes/
A fortnight after my patent was granted, the US Navy research body had been granted a patent which uses technology for transmuting radioactive waste. US8419919 B1
At the moment, a handful of private institutions and researches in the world are claiming R&D on excessive heat of the process and independent evaluations are taking place.
Hope Cell went one step further and is introducing clean hydrogen production. Clean energy development is now becoming a reality through this weak atomic force phenomena implementation.
The Hope Cell method demonstrates over-unity in achieved energy efficiency compared to electrolysis or steam reforming and will be proportionally reflected by lowering the final price of the product. It’s becoming the most competitive energy solution available.
When coupled with alternative energy sources, such as wind, solar or hydroelectric power generation, becoming the “0” carbon energy solution for on-demand usage.
What has been achieved so far in the development process?
This unique concept has been recognized through receiving Energy Globe Award – the World Award for sustainability.
Intellectual property has been granted patent in the United States and is backed up with two additional patents currently in the final stage of the process in the US as well as in Australia.
Technology has had global exposure through several publications.
Testing and improvements are still ongoing.
But there is more that has to be done.
This project has been self funded and as a result is progressing slower than it could. The development of marketable products of this innovative technology is now dependent on external input.
A strong party is needed, one which can grasp the size of the project, have a global market presence aspiration and ability, to take it to the next level.
