BlackLight Power, Inc. Announces Production of Electricity from a New Form of Hydrogen
Independent studies validate breakthrough non-polluting energy source based on hydrino theory

Cranbury, NJ (November 29, 2010)—BlackLight Power, Inc. (BLP) today announced that CIHT (Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition) technology has been independently confirmed by Dr. K.V. Ramanujachary, Rowan University Meritorious Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

“We have demonstrated the ability to produce electrical power using chemical systems for the direct production of electric power from the conversion of hydrogen to hydrinos, a more stable form of hydrogen,” said Dr. Randell Mills, Chairman, CEO and President of BlackLight Power, Inc. “CIHT has a forecasted nominal cost per unit of power compared to that of thermal-based systems and produces electricity without requiring enormous thermally-driven mechanical generators.  Consequently, more rapid dissemination is expected by deploying many autonomous distributed units that circumvent the huge barriers of entry into the power markets such as developing and building massive billion-dollar power plants with their associated power distribution infrastructure.  This is especially true in emerging markets.”

BlackLight Power is first focused on advancing CIHT technology to produce power to ultimately sell directly to consumers under power purchase agreements.

“The business plan is akin to that of solar leasing, but the costs are potentially vastly cheaper, and the systems may be deployable for essentially all applications of all scales untethered to the Sun or the grid, or as in the case of fuel cells and cars, a fuel supply,” said Dr. Mills.  “To realize how transformational this technology will be, imagine that an electric car can travel over 5,000 miles on the hydrogen energy from a gallon of water without any pollution whatsoever.  The power source can then be lifted out and plugged into your electrical panel to power your home with enough power to spare to also power your neighborhood,” continued Dr. Mills.

Akridge Energy, a licensee, intends to deploy distributed-scale CIHT electric power units at commercial real estate properties and sell electricity to its tenants and eventually into the local electric grid.  John E. Akridge III, chairman and owner of Akridge Energy said, “BLP’s breakthrough CIHT technology will allow us to become a major green-power producer for the DC metro area while enabling dramatic savings and unheard of independence.  It is ideal for our needs across the full spectrum of our applications: powering apartment complexes, commercial offices, retail outlets, and mixed-use projects.”

Dr. K.V. Ramanujachary said, “The chemicals used in CIHT technology are similar to those used in thermal and chemical cells that were separately, thoroughly and diligently validated over the past three years by a team at Rowan University that included myself.  Since the measurements on CIHT are electrical versus calorimetric, there can be no dispute over the power and the energy balance.  With further optimization, there is no doubt that this technology will present an economically viable and environmentally benign alternate to meet Global energy needs.  If advanced to commercialization, it would be one of the most profound developments ever.”

Completion of Thermal Energy Balance and Chemical Characterization of Solids Fuels at Rowan University
Additionally, an expanded team of scientists and engineers at Rowan University completed a thorough year-long series of additional testing of the thermal systems following the announcement and release of their validations in October 2008 and August 2009.  Using BLP’s proprietary solid-fuel chemistry capable of continuous regeneration, independently formulated and tested fuels generated on-demand energy greater than that of combustion at power levels of kilowatts.  Furthermore, when using BLP’s chemical process, Rowan University professors reported a net energy gain of up to 6.5 times the maximum energy potential of these materials from known chemical reactions.

In a joint statement, Dr. K.V. Ramanujachary, Rowan University Meritorious Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Dr. Amos Mugweru, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Dr. John L. Schmalzel P.E., Professor of Engineering and Dr. Peter Jansson P.E., Associate Professor of Engineering said, “In additional independent tests conducted over the last 12 months involving 13 solid fuel mixtures made by us from commercially-available chemicals confirmed by multiple analyses, our team of engineering and chemistry professors, staff and students at Rowan University has independently and consistently generated energy in excesses ranging from 1.3 times to 6.5 times the maximum theoretical heat available through known chemical reactions.”

Chemists Drs. Ramanujachary and Mugweru said, “Additionally, we have analyzed the reactants and reaction products and are confident that the procedures we have followed and chemicals we have procured, characterized, and reacted are not capable of generating the quantities of heat we have observed with previously known chemistry.  This significant development makes it readily possible for other laboratories to demonstrate the repeatability of these reactions that produce anomalous heat regularly in our university laboratory.  Moreover, we have also reproduced BLP’s tests for the third time that identify a new form of hydrogen as the likely explanation of the additional heat produced.”

Light Signature of Hydrino
BLP also announced today the replication of the extraordinary high-energy light emission below 80 nm from hydrogen at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).  These results, previously thought to be impossible based on past theory, are predicted to be from the formation of hydrinos.  The direct spectral observation of transitions of hydrogen to form hydrinos and their ubiquitous astrophysical presence as the identity of the dark matter of the universe were published in a paper entitled “Hydrino Continuum Transitions with Cutoffs at 22.8 nm and 10.1 nm,” (Int. J. Hydrogen Energy) by Dr. Randell Mills and Dr. Ying Lu.  The CfA validation, which was headed by team leader Alexander Bykanov, PhD under contract with GEN3 Partners, showed hydrogen spectral emissions below 80 nanometers, the previously known ground state.  This is decisive evidence of the existence of hydrinos as Dr. Randell Mills theoretically predicted.

Describing the significance of the breakthrough, Dr. Mills said, “This is smoking-gun evidence of the existence of hydrinos.  The light signature observed is from pure hydrogen and exists at a much higher energy level than deemed possible for this element in any known form.”  In a joint statement, Dr. Alexander Bykanov and Dr. Sam Kogen, GEN3 COO, said, “BLP’s spectral results were identically independently reproduced, and we could find no conventional explanation for the emission of bright light from hydrogen in this very high energy region.  We believe that this confirms hydrino emission.”

The Rowan validations of power production and hydrino product identification and the GEN3 Partners validation of hydrino light emission further confirm the BlackLight Process as a new non-polluting energy source.  This process was first announced by BLP in October 2008.  Hydrinos are a prior undiscovered form of hydrogen in lower-energy states produced by the BlackLight Process as latent energy is released by hydrogen atoms.  The energy released during the formation of a hydrino is over 200 times the energy required to extract hydrogen from water by electrolysis.  The CIHT cells are shown to extract this energy directly as electricity.  With the diversion of a fraction of a percent of the electrical output, the hydrogen fuel can be created from water with the net providing power on-site.  Thus, power can be generated anywhere including at homes and businesses and in cars without supporting fuels, generation, or distribution infrastructure.  BlackLight thermal power sources are also independent of a fuels infrastructure and have further advantages over traditional central generation in distributed electrical power applications as well as retrofits.  Engineering designs are available at: http://www.blacklightpower.com/.

Successful Application of Theory
The classical theory that predicts the existence of hydrinos has enjoyed a number of other recent significant confirmations and successes.  These include:

  • The prediction of an important emission line from hydrino atoms at 24.1cm-1
  • The absence of time dilation in red-shift quasars together with acceleration of the cosmic expansion and the masses of fundamental particle regarding the nature of spacetime
  • The solution of the muonic H Lamb shift regarding the nature of particles such as the electron and photons and their physics of atomic bonding and energy transitions in atoms
  • The vast solutions of bonding in molecules and other forms of matter that are the basis of the Millsian software

Glossary:

BlackLight Process: A novel chemical process invented by BLP causing the latent energy stored in the hydrogen atom to be released as a new primary energy source. 

Hydrino: Hydrinos are a new form of hydrogen theoretically predicted and discovered by BLP.  Hydrinos are produced during the BlackLight Process as energy is released from the hydrogen atom as the electron transitions to a lower-energy state resulting in a smaller radius hydrogen atom.  The identity of the dark matter of the universe as hydrinos is supported by BlackLight’s spectroscopic and analytical results as well as astrophysical observations.

CIHT Technology: The direct generation of electrical power by the formation of hydrinos.  The fuel is hydrogen that may be produced from water by diverting as little as 0.5% of the electrical output.

Spectral Emissions: Spectral emission of an atom such as hydrogen is a unique signature that acts like a fingerprint of its characteristics.  Each line of the spectrum is characteristic of and identifies the energy levels of the atom.
