New breakthrough in low-energy nuclear reactions: Hydrogen hot tube produces net-positive power

• by JD Heyes

At the ICCF24 Solid-State Energy Summit, Brillouin was able to demonstrate net-positive power production from its HHT boiler – the latest step towards the commercialization of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technologies.

"These significant performance achievements represent a major step forward on the pathway to commercializing our innovative LENR technologies for hot water boiler and hydronic heating manufacturers," said David Firshein, Brillouin's chief financial officer.

A press release about the breakthroughs explains that Brillouin's HHT test system produced over 250 watts of heat in water at a ..25-times excess heat ratio from steady-state power out-of-the-wall, all while running a small Stirling Engine.

The implicit excess heat ratio of the device was more than three times at the internal catalyst rod level – watch the short video from below to see the demonstration in action:
