"Trends Journal" edited by Gerald Celente has published a paper about New Energy that includes a part about Defkalion Green Energies .
This journal is readable only be “members” (subscribers) therefore I will include here only pages 32-3 about DGT.
DGT wants to make a small correction: “ only at NI Week it will be a “physical” public demonstration, at ICCFF-18 there will be a theoretical demo.
THE SEARCH FOR AN OIL-FREE FUTURE
by Bennett Daviss
The Trends Journal • Spring 2013, pp 30-34
Part about Defkalion pp 33-34)
Andrea Rossi, the maverick Italian inventor of the “E-Catalyzer” (Trends Journal, Autumn 2011), was the first to unveil a device that reputedly derives abundant, radiation-free nuclear energy by combining hydrogen gas with powdered nickel. Last fall, Rossi delivered yet another version of his invention to an unnamed “military partner” for testing.
But Rossi’s former partners at Defkalion Green Technologies aren’t waiting for more tests. They’re ready to make products.
Defkalion was formed in
in 2009 to commercialize this as-yet-mysterious reaction: a combination of powdered nickel, hydrogen gas and a few proprietary
catalysts under precise combinations of pressures and temperatures that produce
heat to make steam. Rossi’s calculations indicate that as much as 20 times as
much energy, Greece
as heat, comes out of the device than is used to run it – far
more than a chemical reaction could generate.
Also, the reaction among the materials doesn’t produce
radiation but leaves behind copper isotopes and bits of
iron in quantities not present before the reactor was turned
on. This indicates that the process transmutes some elements in the reaction chamber into others, a signature of
a nuclear event. Many observers believed Rossi’s device
was poised to become the first commercial device able to
capitalize on clean or “low energy” nuclear reactions to
deliver cheap, abundant, pollution-free energy.
REVENGE OF THE QUIRKS
But Defkalion and the notoriously quirky Rossi disagreed
over both scientific and business ideas and divorced early
in 2011. In the interim, several of Rossi’s early supporters
have wearied of his string of unmet promises of public
demonstrations and commercial products. Now Defkalion’s technology may overtake Rossi’s as the first venture
to market nickel-hydrogen devices, as it unveils two inventions of its own.
Alex Xanthoulis, Defkalion’s CEO, is quick to emphasize that the company’s products differ sharply from Rossi’s. An unnamed “major
organization,” he says, has US
compared Rossi’s and Defkalion’s devices on 14 points.
“It found only two the same – the use of hydrogen and the
use of nickel,” he says. “Otherwise, the two are completely
There are other points of departure. Rossi’s early devices, like the inventor himself, also were quirky. The temperatures they would reach weren’t predictable;
they produced only a few watts of excess energy; and,
when shut off, took varying lengths of time to stop producing heat.
In contrast, Defkalion’s machines reportedly produce
heat at precise temperatures that customers require and can be shut off within a few seconds. The devices also produce energy up to 10 kilowatt-hours, not single watts as
others have. The nickel-hydrogen fuel modules can easily be pulled out and replaced when depleted, a task that should need to happen only every few months.
Defkalion’s first product is called “Hyperion” and will
enter the market early next year. A cube about 20 inches on a side, it will be marketed as a heater or boiler for
homes and light industry needing up to five megawatts of
The second product is a larger-scale reactor that canbe used to drive turbines or even cars, trains, ships, space
satellites, and planes. Defkalion reports fielding inquiries
from hundreds of companies around the world and has
chosen to partner with at least 10 large ones – including
three vehicle manufacturers, a utility company, telecommunications firms, and a maker of aircraft – to continue research and development. Some of the companies already are testing commercial devices using the reactor as
a power source.
If Defkalion’s figures are right, the economic case is
compelling. The cheapest electricity is generated from
nuclear fuel at a cost of about US$.045 per kilowatt-hour.
In contrast, Defkalion calculates that it can make electricity for US$0.0035 cents, less than a tenth as much.
Xanthoulis notes that setting up a five-megawatt photovoltaic array in
with 120,000 square meters of Greece
solar panels delivering full power for about seven hours a
day, would cost US$10 million.
Defkalion, however, maintains that its reactor, capable
of providing the same amount of energy, would be only
20 feet long, cost $1.5 million, and deliver full power 24
hours a day.
In practical terms, an ocean freighter, for example,
spends around $27,000 a day on diesel at current prices,
needs to make port for refueling, spews sooty exhaust, and
risks polluting the seas in case of a fuel spill. Swapping
the contents of a ship’s engine room for a Defkalion reactor would call for four 20-foot containers and fuel costs of
about $400 a day. Refueling could be done at sea every
six months and the risk of air and ocean pollution falls
Defkalion will conduct a public demonstration of its
reactor at the International Cold Fusion Conference during the third week of July 2013 at the
of Missouri ,
and another at NIWeek, the National Columbia
Instruments Conference in
, to be held August 5 –
8 this year. Austin,
What the company won’t do is attempt to explain how
its devices work. Defkalion is purely a business entity,
Xanthoulis points out. While other ventures in low-energy nuclear reactions have been led by scientists intent
on making new physics, Defkalion’s purpose is to make
products. “We don’t operate on the principle of chemical
reactions or nuclear reactions,” he says. “We operate on
the principle of Mrs. Maria.”
Mrs. Maria was a family friend who lived in the same
apartment building in
as Xanthoulis. When Greece
was cut by 40 percent and she couldn’t pay for heat. The
building’s manager confided in Xanthoulis, who agreed
to pay the old woman’s heating bill and swore the manager to silence. In the spring, Mrs. Maria told Xanthoulis
how clever she’d been: the apartments all around her
were heated, so she stayed warm even though she didn’t
pay for heat.
“Mrs. Maria didn’t know why she had heat and we can’t
explain why our products create heat,” Xanthoulis says.
“Our priority is not to explain what atoms are doing. Our
priority is to make sure that Mrs. Maria stays warm. Of
course we want a scientific explanation, but publishing
scientific papers is not our first priority.”
So far, Defkalion has survived on capital supplied by a
small group of partners. Now that the company is ready to
grow, it’s also ready to talk with investors. It shuns venture
capitalists and banks, but has entered discussions with a
few corporations and individuals and is ready to hear from

DGT does not concur with the article's statement that they will make public demonstrations this summer.ReplyDelete
They have not agreed to any public demonstrations at any time.
They state that they are courting ten larger industrial companies, but none have ever been identified. Large companies generally want the publicity. Why are all ten hiding?
It was already told NI WEEK demo.Delete
They are making many demos for public defined by them
Can you tell me, why should they identify those companies?
Do you think that today, a few months before the official
start of the LENR+ revolution, any great company will be happy to be connected to something that seems to be an
off-spring of Cold Fusion? Great companies have to take care, reputation = share value = money.
The situation will change completely soon, but now...our
natural curiosity will remain unsatisfied.
note that Sterling allan report from the interview of DGT :Delete
"Wait until NI-Week in August", has been Defkalion's standard reply to most media that has contacted them, which is when they plan to be demonstrating a module in operation for the public, along with giving a scientific presentation about their technology. Ever since the days of Pons and Fleischmann, James Truchard ("Dr. T"), the CEO of National Instruments, has been tracking and supporting the development of this fledgling field the best he can. And last year, Dr. T gave a very warm reception to several LENR groups he invited to attend and present at the conference. Alex is very grateful for his material and emotional support.
Due to the difficulty of setting up (it takes four days), Defkalion will not be giving the same demonstration at ICCF 18 at the University of Missouri in July, though they will be presenting a lecture there as well."
which is more or less what Peter report too.
demo at NIWeek2013, and lecture only at ICCF18
Thanks for the news Peter. Celente has been on this for a while, but silence on this issue for last two years.ReplyDelete
I re-posted an excerpt and linked to your news.
Thank you dear Ruby! I think many more good newsReplyDelete
for New Energy will come rather soon
It is difficult to believe that Defkalion LENR unit has immediate heat when turned on, since I heard the LENR exothermic reaction takes about half an hour to "warm up." OTH, I wish any company promoting LENR good luck, and doubt that any rational company would invest in technology that wasn't proven beyond a reasonable doubt, especially since the LENR physical reaction is not consensus science yet.ReplyDelete
you should read the report of Nelson.Delete
Assuming that Nelson does not ruin his career at NASA by a fraud, it works, and on demand.
COP as he observe was modest 3:1, because of low temperature of test, and not so far from the current claim of DGT of 5:1 the first day...
the warmup period said 10-20 minutes according to what is said, and recent interview of DGT report that higher efficiency happens after a day...
what is most interesting is that the partners seems to have decided not to buy those rectors, but the technology.
I expect that the specialized reactors that will be designed would be even better...
the technology has progressed fast, DGR has investigated
very carefully the control of the process- including fast
triggering and immediate shut-down. Both are OK now.
Please let me know if I can help you
in some way!
Compared with the glass reactor with jacket, the high quality stone crusher has wide applications. Here: www.toption-china.com/products/glass-reactor-with-jacket-10l.
