Infinite energy

    Researchers at Hong Kong Polytechnic University claim to have invented a new kind of graphene-based "battery" that runs solely on ambient heat. The device is said to capture the thermal energy of ions in a solution and convert it into electricity.
    The results are in the process of being peer reviewed, but if confirmed, such a device might find use in a range of applications, including powering artificial organs from body heat, generating renewable energy and powering electronics.
    Ions in aqueous solution move at speeds of hundreds of metres per second at room temperature and pressure. The thermal energy of these ions can thus reach several kilojoules per kilogram per degree.

    However, until now, little work had been done on finding out how to tap into this energy and produce power from it.
    Zihan Xu and colleagues made their battery by attaching silver and gold electrodes to a strip of graphene – which is a film of carbon just one atom thick. In their experiments, the researchers showed that six of these devices in series placed in a solution of copper-chloride ions could produce a voltage of more than 2 Volt.
    This is enough to drive a commercial red light-emitting diode.
    The technology is quite different to conventional lithium-ion batteries, for example, which convert chemical energy into electricity. “The output of our device is also continuous and it works solely by harvesting the thermal energy of the surrounding copper-chloride ions, which, in theory, is limitless,” says Xu.
    According to the researchers, the battery works rather like a solar cell. The copper ions (Cu2+) continually collide with the graphene strip in the battery. This collision is energetic enough to displace an electron from the graphene. This electron can then either combine with the copper ion or travel through the graphene strip and into the circuit.
    Since electrons move through graphene at extremely high speeds (thanks to the fact that they behave like relativistic particles with no rest mass), they travel much faster in the carbon-based material than in the ionic solution. The released electron therefore naturally prefers to travel through the graphene circuit rather than through the solution.
    This is how the voltage is produced by the device, explains Xu.

    Boosting voltage output
    The researchers also found that the voltage produced by the device could be increased by heating the ionic solution and accelerating the Cu2+ ions with ultrasound. Both of these methods work because they increase the kinetic energy of the ions. The voltage also increases if the copper-chloride solution is more concentrated with Cu2+ ions, because the density of Cu2+ on the graphene is then greater. Other cationic solutions can be employed too, such as Na+, K+, Co2+and Ni2+, although these produce lower voltage outputs.
    The unique atomic-layer nature of graphene is crucial for this battery, say the researchers, who also experimented with graphite and carbon-nanotube thin films. They discovered that these materials only produced low voltages of around microvolts, which could be regarded as noise.
    Bor Jang of Nanotek Instruments in Dayton, Ohio, who has worked on making supercapacitors from graphene, says that the concept described looks "very interesting" but that "more work will be needed to assess whether the approach could provide sufficient energy or power density for practical uses".
    For its part, the Hong Kong team now plans to improve the power output of its graphene-based device and further investigate how it works.

  • Sam... oh Sam... if you like this, you would have loved Steorn. You would probably like my energy generating and transportation providing flying pigs too.

    There is a comprehensive discussion of this very transparent and incompetent fraud here (4 forum pages of it):…DiscussionID=17917&page=1

    This particular scam has been around for some time. You may need to join the forum to see the posts (I'm not sure) but if you do, you can use any nickname and it's free. To cut to the chase, these devices always contain a power source, in this case, probably a lithium battery inside the large flywheel, or hidden wires coming up through the floor. Investors should ask for complete disassembly and then a very long run on an isolated glass table in the middle of the parking lot. See if they provide that!

  • The man behind IEC Dennis Danzik has a 'bit of a past', as this document shows. A careful websearch will find more. Wikipedia says... December 2012, engineer Dennis M. Danzik was hired by bank and investment holders of CWT to evaluate the Carthage plant. By early January 2013 Danzik had terminated most of the West Hempstead management. In April 2013, CWT was acquired by a Canadian firm, Ridgeline Energy Services, based in Calgary, Alberta.…tember/2018_09_20_dec.pdf

  • Alan Smith : With regard to…tember/2018_09_20_dec.pdf -- I don't suppose we could have the Cliff Notes version? It looks long and convoluted with legalese enough that even a woman could grow a Rip Van Winkle beard while studying it.

    BTW, the first link (Ridgeline Energy Services) is a dead link within Wikipedia. The second is a description of the city of Calgary. Why?

    ETA-- never mind, this may help:



    OK, so it seems Mr. Danzik is a convicted felon with an active (outstanding) warrant for his immediate arrest in New York. It seems the warrant is the only outstanding thing about Mr. Danzik. Hey Sam12, next time someone mentions a magnetic motor, run. There is no such thing and there can be no such a thing-- because magnets do not store any appreciable energy and therefore can not provide any.


    This, BTW, is current information as of 2/2019. With thanks to "Asterix" on the Moletrap Forum:…DiscussionID=17917&page=2

  • It seems to me that Mr Danzik himself was a victim of fraud and as a result his company went bankrupt. Moreover, he is not convicted. BTW The document above linked is pretty fresh one - it's dated today., despite Asterix linked it before five days already. What actually happens there - an ordered smearing campaign?

    It is dated February 4, not April 2. See the top of the document.

  • The results of Zihan Xu Hong Kong Polytechnic University are very interesting. But the same question arises with the "breathers" in the DNA or in the NAE: if we extract thermal energy from the agitation of the ambient molecules, this fact contradicts the laws of thermodynamics.

    It is not possible to create energy from nothing.

    On the other hand, it is undoubtedly possible to use the energy of the infrared photons, including BEFORE their emission. (virtual photons) The photon cannot came from outside the device, because CuCl is strongly opaque to the infrared rays. (it was used as an infrared filter in the old movie theaters projectors. The solution is the hot source, and the diode CU/graphène/gold is the cold source.

    This solves the problem.
