Green Energy / Cold Fusion, ready for the market. In Italy, the technology Defkalion
Economic energy, inexhaustible and clean.
Are the characteristics
of the new energy technology Defkalion,
a technique which is based on cold nuclear fusion reactor with the R5
which uses as active elements nickel and hydrogen duly treated and which is capable of producing approximately 4.5 kW of thermal energy in a volume of a few centimeters cubic. Temperatures can reach the melting temperature of the nickel (1453 ° C). Now that the technology is ready, it lacks the marketing.
interview Luca Gamberale,
technical-scientific director of the company "Defkalion Europe"
that must develop industrial applications of the new technology Dr. Gamberale, she was a student of the prestigious prof. Giuliano Preparata, a physicist who in 1987 turned his attention to the problems of condensed matter and nuclear physics in the framework of quantum field theory, discovering new coherent solutions of QED systems in dense enough and cold enough. This allowed him to tackle old problems, such as the theory of liquid water, and new, like cold fusion, which appeared to be a completely new now very promising. She also worked on cold fusion with Giuliano Preparata in private practice and then LEDA in the laboratories of cold fusion of Pirelli Labs, the Pirelli Group, until several years ago, it was decided unfortunately its closure. Now he's the director of technical-scientific society "Defkalion Europe", based in Milan, which is about to develop industrial applications that use a new technology that promises energy efficiency: economic, inexhaustible and clean. Expectations around the world, and in Italy in particular, with regard to new energy technology branded "Defkalion" are very high, could you tell us what is the status of 'art of this new energy technology? And what if it differs from current competitor E-Cat?
"We can say that the technology Defkalion is now ready to face the market. R5 The reactor, which uses as active elements nickel and hydrogen suitably treated, is capable of producing approximately 4.5 kW of thermal energy in a volume of a few cubic centimeters with temperatures that in principle may get to the melting temperature of the nickel (1453 ° C). The limitation in temperature is given by the materials that make up the reactor, which have a certain degree of complexity and which will focus the effort of engineering. Currently we are able to obtain temperatures of over 600 ° C in the secondary circuit using thermal fluids appropriate. The reactor can be switched on and off in a short time and the reaction is completely under control. Charging of the reactor lasts six months of continuous operation and the product end of the reaction is mainly copper and some other metal is not harmful to health and the environment. dell'R5 The difference compared to the E-Cat and the Leonardo Corp. 'radical. Indeed, while the exothermic reaction in the E-Cat controlled by the presence of a catalyst, nell'R5 the reaction is triggered and modulated by a plasma discharge with very particular characteristics. It is precisely the presence of this discharge which allows a smooth and stable control of the reaction. The R5 (which will be short replaced dall'R6 that is a reactor substantially equivalent R5 but with improved performance) can be easily operated in parallel so as to achieve the target power, up to several megawatts. The estimated cost is less than any of the kWh primary source currently available. "
The difficulties and obstacles that research in the "Cold Fusion" (LENR) met since 1989 are known to all. She believes that the times have changed,? Do you think that there is still interest "strong" in place, tied to old technologies and vested interests that can impede even in the present and in the future development and success of this new and wonderful energy technology "Defkalion" ? "I
do not know if times have changed. Rather I think that despite the massive effort to prevent the spread and the study of this controversial branch of physics, the few people who have spent their credibility and their work in this difficult area of research , have finally come to a formulation technology that paves the way to practical applications, in front of which the Academy more orthodox and conservative can not anymore. When industry will become aware of new technological possibilities that are offered by this technology , it will become pervasive, and the Academy which has greatly hampered research into LENR will be remembered in the future only to smear his work. "
This new energy technology, "Defkalion" which promises: economic energy, inexhaustible and clean, according to your point of view, that economic and social impact could be in the 'immediate, and then view, in Italy, in Europe and worldwide whole?
"The impact of technology Defkalion will be significant. The benefits will be in the field of energy supply will become gradually more and more fragmented. Probably gradually disappear energy distribution of mass in favor of local production of energy. Each will produce the energy that they need, both thermal and electrical. However, this process will not be immediate but it will require time that may range from 10 to 20 years. should be given time to the big players in the distribution of energy to change its assets in a non-traumatic way synergy with the new technology. "
You have already made it possible ordering systems "Defkalion" in Italy and in Europe? If so, you have had many requests to date of these plants "Defkalion" by private companies, etc.? "Defkalion
Europe is not a producer of power generators. Its customers include other European companies wishing to develop technology-based applications Defkalion. Defkalion Europe is a 'company of research and development. Defkalion Europe was formed very recently and we have already advanced contact with important European industries. "
How long before we see the first systems with technology "Defkalion" installed and running? And these first plants will be built in Italy? By "Defkalion Europe", of which she Gamberale, is the scientific director?
"As I said Defkalion Europe will not produce plants. Consequently the time the entry into operation of the generators Defkalion will be decided by the companies that are our customers. It is therefore also possible that installations are made in Italy, always depend on our customers but not directly from us. would welcome the presence of the Italian Government to promote this fact. "
Are you already working on the construction of a production facility, a highly automated factory for the production of the equipment, "Defkalion" (including domestic and electrical), in Italy? That would be able to produce the devices at low cost?
"No. Defkalion Europe not expected to make production of plants / generators."
Energy technology "Defkalion" is new, and the news leaked so far we know that are daily made progress in terms of yield and profit (COP). She believes that it is appropriate to buy now this technology, or would you recommend instead of waiting a few more months?
"Wait a few months is not an option but an obligation. Fact there is an affordable. It exists when one our client companies will put on the market. This will not happen for a couple of years. What needs to reassure people is that the technology is now an established fact. should only integrated into salable products. This takes time for the engineering, certifications, put into production. "
