BlackLight Power Announces 10 Mega Watt Free Energy Device

I use the term “free energy” loosely.  It’s not a true free energy device, but rather an ultra cheap way of harvesting electricity from water by converting it into a plasma state.  According to the press release, they’ve come up with a device that’s about a square foot in size that can generate enough electricity to power 10,000 homes using an extremely small amount of water as its only fuel source.

I did an article on them a long time ago, and I was VERY excited by the potential I saw.  Randal Mills, the founder of BLP, is a Harvard trained doctor.  His team came up with a way to harvest “free” energy using a LENR type process a while back, but they kind of fell off the radar as I haven’t heard of any progress from them for several years.

BLP claims the system will cost around $0.10 per kwh, which would mean you could power your home for an entire year for about a hundred dollars in annually amortized equipment costs.  Not only could you power your home, but you could power all the homes around you as well.  Given the unit’s size, it could easily replace vehicle engines as well.  The power the unit produces vs. the size of the unit (power density) is millions of times that of a jet engine.

Here’s the video they released back in 2008 that shows a calorimetry test of their new fuel cell.  In this video, you will see Dr. Peter Jansson of Rowan University confirm BLP’s findings.

The latest press release goes on to say that the ENSER corporation has also confirmed BLP’s findings.

From the recent BLP press release:

Cranbury, NJ (January 14, 2014) — BlackLight Power, Inc. (BLP) today announced that it has produced millions of watts of power with its breakthrough Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) patent pending technology in its laboratories.

Using a proprietary water-based solid fuel confined by two electrodes of a SF-CIHT cell, and applying a current of 12,000 amps through the fuel, water ignites into an extraordinary flash of power. The fuel can be continuously fed into the electrodes to continuously output power. BlackLight has produced millions of watts of power in a volume that is one ten thousandths of a liter corresponding to a power density of over an astonishing 10 billion watts per liter. As a comparison, a liter of BlackLight power source can output as much power as a central power generation plant exceeding the entire power of the four former reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the site of one of the worst nuclear disasters in history.

Our safe, non-polluting power-producing system catalytically converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a non-polluting product, lower-energy state hydrogen called “Hydrino”, by allowing the electrons to fall to smaller radii around the nucleus. The energy release of H2O fuel, freely available in the humidity in the air, is one hundred times that of an equivalent amount of high-octane gasoline. The power is in the form of plasma, a supersonic expanding gaseous ionized physical state of the fuel comprising essentially positive ions and free electrons that can be converted directly to electricity using highly efficient magnetohydrodynamic converters. Simply replacing the consumed H2O regenerates the fuel. Using readily-available components, BlackLight has developed a system engineering design of an electric generator that is closed except for the addition of H2O fuel and generates ten million watts of electricity, enough to power ten thousand homes. Remarkably, the device is less than a cubic foot in volume. To protect its innovations and inventions, multiple worldwide patent applications have been filed on BlackLight’s proprietary technology.

This breakthrough transformational power technology can be witnessed in a live demonstration hosted by BlackLight of on January 28th at 11 AM. Details and updates will be posted at the company website (http://www.blacklightpower.com/). Those interested in attending can contact BlackLight to preregister for this limited availability event.

The press release goes on to state that the power production method has been independently verified by a third party.

“We at The ENSER Corporation have performed about thirty tests at our premises using BLP’s CIHT electrochemical cells of the type that were tested and reported by BLP in the Spring of 2012, and achieved the three specified goals,” said Dr. Ethirajulu Dayalan, Engineering Fellow, of The ENSER Corporation. “We independently validated BlackLight’s results offsite by an unrelated highly qualified third party. We confirmed that hydrino was the product of any excess electricity observed by three analytical tests on the cell products, and determined that BlackLight Power had achieved fifty times higher power density with stabilization of the electrodes from corrosion.” Dr. Terry Copeland, who managed product development for several electrochemical and energy companies including DuPont Company and Duracell added, “Dr. James Pugh (then Director of Technology at ENSER) and Dr. Ethirajulu Dayalan participated with me in the independent tests of CIHT cells at The ENSER Corporation’s Pinellas Park facility in Florida starting on November 28, 2012. We fabricated and tested CIHT cells capable of continuously producing net electrical output that confirmed the fifty-fold stable power density increase and hydrino as the product.”

Peswiki’s Sterling D. Allan just did an interview with Mills that you can listen to here:

Update 1/29/14: Blacklight has released a two hour long equipment demonstration video.  In the latest demonstration video, you can watch Dr. Kandalam Ramanujachary of Rowan University openly declare that he has verified Blacklight’s findings in his own lab. Ramanujachary has been published 219 times in dozens of highly respected chemical science journals.

Update 2/19/14: Blacklight has published a new validation report, authored by W. Henry Weinberg, former Caltech chemistry and physics professor, link here.

    I hope something like this gets released someday. Personally I would release it Creative Commons and reserve the commercial rights. I would also ask for a fifty dollar donation on the official website.

      Yeah, patents are stupid. But don’t worry. If this thing works as claimed, there will be copycats regardless of patents, just like there were for mobile phones. This tech is too big to keep a lid on.

      • Bedroom_eyes

        It is of the shelf tech. Anyone with basic knowledge in the area will be able to build this machine.

  • Max Johnson

    This smacks of the on again off again “Cold Fusion in some dude’s garage” Cryptotech that’s been around since the 70s.
    While it would be totally cool to have all the electrical power Ever in something the size of a PC tower, I would like to state that ten megawatts of power per cubic centimeter is somewhat ludicrous. A KG of Gasoline contains 12,500 watt hours of energy. To put that into perspective, that CC of water would have to ‘Burn’ 800 times slower than Gasoline to achieve the same rate of energy flux, given identical energy transmission profiles. I.E. not leave a smouldering crater when you try and turn the damn thing on.

    How would you even harness ten megawatts coming out of something the size of a PC tower? At 480 volts, that’s 20,833 amps. I’m pretty sure I can’t get a circuit breaker for that. And that’s the energy apparently contained in a single ml of water. Wow.

    Furthermore, that’s assuming 100% electrical capture. Of course, any energy generated degrades to heat somewhere. What does 10MW of heat look like? Light 232 Gallons of heating oil on fire and you’ll have a good idea. That’s the energy (In heat) of One ml, apparently.

    Multiply by 1000 (ml in a Liter). 232,000 gallons of heating oil, in a Big Gulp. Great if we want to fend off another ice age, not so good for the whole global warming thing. Oh, and that source of energy is apparently the size of a Minifridge. What could Possibly go wrong?

    • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

      “Cold Fusion in some dude’s garage” – not exactly. Mills has raised over 66 million in investment capital, and as I mentioned, he’s a Harvard trained doctor. I’m not sure you could call that a “garage scientist.”

      If you bothered to watch the first video, which you obviously didn’t, you could see the calorimetry test being preformed by a university professor for yourself. Further, NASA has recognized LENR as a real phenomena.

      See this NASA video for more information:

      • RIP

        Blacklight Power has been generating claims like this since 2008. If they are able to generate electricity at less than 1Cent/Kwh, then why don’t they build a in house generator to generate enough electricity to support their electrical needs, instead of buying electricity at >15Cents/kwh? And in the night time they can sell the electricity back to PSEG or Local electric supplier.
        That would be the biggest demonstration, you would not need press releases and patents and papers to show the world what the company is capable of.

  • Kyle J Marsh

    These pseudo-engineering scams discredit those real scientists working on things like the Molten Salt reactors and do damage to real scientific journalism. I wonder why their claims were not approached with more skepticism – a little cursory research revealed this http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/comments/blacklight_power_and_hydrinos which I feel is a much more balanced way to approach issues like this. I’m surprised that the same author of the well-researched article on Bitcoin has published this article with what seems like little or no research into the matter. I would rather read one well done article than ten press releases.

    • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

      Given that I linked to a NASA video on this subject, I’m not sure what more proof you want. Did you even bother to read or watch anything in the article before commenting?

      That “museum of hoaxes” article is typical skeptic crap. It’s simply defending scientific dogma. No analysis was done at all, and it’s from 2005. Why would you believe that shit over NASA and third party professors?

      • Kyle J Marsh

        So I followed your NASA video link, and saw that the source was a Dr. Zawodny. I googled him and found his homepage, where he is very straight forward about describing his involvement with the video and how it came about.

        He says: “Undoubtedly, bits and pieces of this will be taken out of context and used to support claims and opinions which I myself do not hold. Such is the nature of the Wild West Web (WWW). All I can ever hope to do is to maintain the original content and context. In my opinion, reputable sites will link back to this original content and others will not.”

        He continues: “As for what people are trying to read into this video, specifically my use of the word “demonstrated”, it is my professional opinion that the production of excess energy has been demonstrated when the results of the last 20+ years of experimentation are evaluated. There has been a lot of work done in the past 20+ years. When considered in aggregate I believe excess power has been demonstrated. I did not say, reliable, useful, commercially viable, or controllable. If any of those other terms were applicable I would have used them instead. If anything, it is the lack of a single clear demonstration of reliable, useful, and controllable production of excess power that has held LENR research back”

        And finally: “In my scientific opinion, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. I find a distinct absence of the latter. So let me be very clear here. While I personally find sufficient demonstration that LENR effects warrant further investigation, I remain skeptical. Furthermore, I am unaware of any clear and convincing demonstrations of any viable commercial device producing useful amounts of net energy.”

        As for Black Light – they are a scam company set up to take money from trusting people in the name of progress, of hope. They are the worst kind of criminals for they not only prey on the hopes of good-natured people but they do damage to real scientific progress along the way.

        Once you let that sink in, and have decided to publish a retraction, you can enjoy this article which does quite a good job of skewering Black Light: http://scientopia.org/blogs/goodmath/2011/12/29/hydrinos-impressive-free-energy-crackpottery/

        If you’re interested in a real story about real technology, with real scientists, a story with depth, sound science, interesting characters (and a real NASA scientist), a conspiratorial backstory, and a growing number of legitimate supporters from across the (real) scientific community – a story, no a series of stories, that will drive many, many readers to your website, I invite you to look to the LFTR and Thorium reactors and their kind.

        • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

          Ok. You’re entitled to your opinions, as is Dr. Zawodny.

          I’m not sure how explain Blacklights test results though, which have been independently replicated by Rowan University and other third party labs.

          • Kyle J Marsh

            Well pretty I’m sure on how to describe them – Pure Bullshit! Give it up man you lost – this is some fake shit. Not to say all breakthroughs are fake – there are many things worthy of news coverage these days as far as science and progress are concerned, but this isn’t one of them. It’s a Fake.

          • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

            So Dr. Ramanujachary is full of shit too? Why would he put his reputation on the line for Blacklight?

          • Kyle J Marsh

            At first glance he looks like a real professor at what looks to be a minor university, Rowan, in Camden, NJ. It also seems like his credentials are only partially related to the subject matter.

          • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

            WTF you mean “partially related” – the guy is a professional chemist who has been published over two hundred times. How is that not exactly related to the subject at hand?

            And its not just Ramanujachary, its the entire chemical engineering faculty. Did you watch the first video? In that video you can watch Dr. Peter Jansson also say he has verified Blacklight’s findings.

            http://users.rowan.edu/~jansson/

            And it’s not just Rowan – did you read the press release? ENSER Corporation has verified the results. I know I’ve seen reports from other labs too.

          • Kyle J Marsh

            You’re wrong. These guys are scammers. Good ones, but scammers. Hope you didn’t send them too many BTC.

            http://spectrum.ieee.org/energy/nuclear/loser-hot-or-not

            “But critics have raised questions about the replication. They point out that the Rowan group simply borrowed reactors from BlackLight instead of preparing their own from scratch and that Jansson has been a collaborator of Mills’s. And they say there isn’t enough detail to tell whether BlackLight ruled out all possible sources of error in its calorimetry tests, which used temperature measurements of water surrounding the reactor to derive the energy input and output.

            ”Calorimetry experiments are notoriously touchy—it’s easy to fool yourself,” says Joshua Halpern, a professor of chemistry at Howard University, in Washington, D.C. He notes that it was the controversy over calorimeter experiments that undermined claims for cold fusion in the late 1980s. Small variations in temperature data and water flow can wildly distort results.”

          • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

            So let’s sum up your position here:

            You believe NASA’ s Zawodny, who admits LENR is a real phenomena, but doesn’t believe BLPs claims even though he’s never personally tested BLP’s process himself.

            Rowan University’s chemical engineering faculty actually ran the tests and confirmed BLPs findings, but you don’t believe them because they apparently don’t know how to properly run calorimetry tests, even though the calorimetry test is only one test of many that confirms BLP’s findings. I guess you think they don’t know how to do mass spectroscopy tests either.

            ENSER confirms BLP’s findings, but you don’t believe them either because they are quacks too? Have you looked at ENSER’s website? Do these guys look like a bunch of quacks to you? http://enser.com/

            The CEO of Altair Nanotechnologies, Terry M. Copeland, who has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from MIT, also confirms BLP’s findings in his own lab, but you don’t believe him because he’s also a quack?

            The Chief Technical Officer of Draths Corporation, W. Henry Weinberg, who has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Berkeley also confirms BLP’s findings, but you don’t believe him because he’s also a quack?

            Should I keep going? I guess you think BLP is a gigantic conspiracy.

          • Kyle J Marsh

            I can agree with your last statement. Yes, I think BLP is a scam. Now I’ll just sit back and wait for time to prove me right (and you, wrong).

          • Kyle J Marsh

            What’s more interesting, now, is why you are so emotionally invested in this that you can’t look at it through a sober lens. I determine that you either: 1) are simply an idealistic enthusiastic guy who really wishes it were so… 2) someone who has given these guys money and you don’t want to believe you were scammed… 3) in on it yourself… 4) just trying to get people to click through to your website and you found what seemed like a great story… 5) an aspiring journalist/blogger who got caught up and published a story without checking facts, and now you are desperately trying to save it, but eventually you will decide that you were wrong, and publish a retraction.

          • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

            Sober lens? I’m citing a ton of independent researchers who have conducted independent testing. You are the one who is ignoring the what the scientists are saying. How am I the one ignoring science here?

            All you have presented to me is a some guy who admits LENR is real, but never did any testing of BLPs process and an IEEE article written by people who never did any testing of BLPs process either.

            I don’t understand how you can ignore the vast amount of independent testing that has confirmed what BLP is claiming.

          • Kyle J Marsh

            Well, sir, I certainly hope history will prove me wrong. I’d certainly love to have some free energy right now. Instead I need to go to bed so I can work to make money to pay the gas bill. Goodnight and good luck. Hope to see some well researched articles on your site in the future… but I won’t hold my breath.

          • http://www.libertariannews.org/ Michael Suede

            I’m sorry if you don’t think my articles, which have videos of tests being conducted right in front of your face, don’t constitute being “well researched.”

            For my next article, I’ll invite the scientists involved over to your house for a personal demonstration of the technology.
