WHAT IS LENR?
- Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) is a new, 3rd type of nuclear reaction (along with fission and fusion) that was originally discovered in 1989 by scientists Fleischmann & Pons and called “cold fusion”. LENR is similar to, but believed to be different than cold fusion, although that may remain the common name. (LENR has also been called LANR, Fleischmann/Pons Effect, Anomalous Heat Effect, Quantum Fusion, CECR, LENT.)
- LENR appears to be far stronger than any known chemical reaction and up to 20,000,000 times the power density of today’s combustion energy processes. The LENR process can continually create large amounts of excess heat in a small sized reactor for several months using small amounts of low cost fuel and producing no harmful CO2 or nuclear byproducts.
- LENR replications have been increasing in sustained power gain since the original experiments in 1989 which used Palladium and Deuterium electrolysis. Newer LENR systems use processed Nickel and Hydrogen gas to achieve higher power gains, which appear to now be approaching commercial heat/electrical power generating levels.
- Commercial LENR energy generation, if/when it arrives, may be a near perfect energy source that will have profound changes globally.
