What is LENR and Cold Fusion ?
LENR stands for Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. The cold fusion is one type of LENR where nuclear fusion reactions occur at moderate temperatures, contrary to thermonuclear fusion which occurs at very high temperatures for example, in the core of stars or in the very hot plasmas generated by tokamaks as at ITER facility.
Cold fusion is claimed to have been observed under specific conditions when hydrogen isotopes are incorporated in some metals. LENR has most likely been observed experimentally with exothermic reactions and some transmutations.
Those can produce different types of elements and represent a crucial field of research for future sources of energy.
CleanHME shall develop a new, clean, safe, compact and very efficient energy source based on Hydrogen-Metal and plasma systems, which could be a breakthrough for both private use as well as for industrial applications.
The new energy source could be employed both as a small mobile system or alternatively as a stand-alone heat and electricity generator. We plan to construct a new compact reactor to test the HME technology during the long-term experiments and increase its technology readiness level. A comprehensive theory of HME phenomena shall be worked out as well.
