The ECAT technology will revolutionize energy production as we know it. The main reason for this paradigm shift in energy production is the high Energy Density in the ECAT fuel which implies that the ECAT fuel cost will be much lower than any conventional energy source. See LENR Technology for details.
ECAT Fuel (Ni-H) compared to oil:
- Costs 1/1000 of Oil – (Cost less than transportation cost of oil)
- Energy Density > 100 000 x oil
- Power Density > 100 kW/kg
- Reserves 10 billion years – oil 150 years
- No emissions, no pollution, no noise.
- 1 liter Ni-H is energy equivalent of 2 000 000 liter oil
On top of the favorable Fuel Facts the ECAT features:
- Low Operation and Maintenance Costs (the modular design admits minimal maintenance)
- Minimal Fuel Transport Cost (only 2 refuelings/year under continous run)
- Zero Carbon Dioxide Emissions
- Zero Noise (only noise from auxilliary products <50dB)
The process that makes this possible is called Cold Fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR). Nickel is fused with Hydrogen and transmutes into copper. This is an exothermal nuclear process that releases energy at around 10MeV per atomic reaction compared to the burning of Hydrogen which only releases 1.5eV per atomic reaction (Burning H2 in O2). Per atom, the exothermal process has an energy content of more than a million times the energy content of the most energetic (per weight) chemical process. The higher weight of Nickel and the fact one usually disregard Oxygen’s weight due to its presence in air makes the net factor around 200 000 when compared to oil.
The abundance of Nickel in the earth’s crust and the low price of Nickel make the ECAT one of the cheapest energy producers around. The ECAT does not pollute or release any carbon dioxide. Put together, there is no doubt that this is a good and safe energy source for the future.
