"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

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
