I recently inquired of the status of Brillouin Energy because I noted that they had been removed from the scheduled list of presenters at the upcoming ICCF17 conference in Korea. I received the following response:
I am the Chief Financial Officer of Brillouin Energy Corp., and we have recently switched point persons for our web-site email address. Going forward, these messages will reach me first for review and distribution amongst our team. Our Founder and other senior team members are extremely busy leading our technology efforts, and we are attempting to become a more efficient company today, as we concentrate our efforts on top priorities.
To answer your question more directly, one of our senior partner colleagues at SRI in Menlo Park, CA, Dr. Francis Tanzella, will be attending and I believe speaking at ICCF-17, and you will be able to hear about the kind of work that we are collaborating on together, through him. That’s our status at the moment, and all we are prepared to say at this time, other than what is posted on our website. When we can share more news, we will do so.
Chief Financial Officer
Brillouin Energy Corp.
The ICCF17 schedule shows that Dr. Tanzella is on the speaking schedule. His biography is listed as follows:
Dr. Francis Tanzella is a Senior Electrochemist at SRI International. After earning his Ph.D in chemistry from UC, Berkeley, and studying Electrochemistry as a post-doctoral at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Tanzella worked as a chemist at E. I. DuPont, Inc. He later joined SRI as part of the Electrochemistry Program. At SRI, he used electrochemical techniques to monitor chemical reaction rates in many processes, including hydrogen in palladium. Dr. Tanzella has helped develop the LENR electrochemical and calorimetry program at SRI, and has been instrumental in the advancement of the field since its inception. Dr. Tanzella has published over 75 papers in LENR and related subjects
Brillouin has mentioned in the past that they were going to be working with Michael McKubre at SRI International — it looks like also they are involved with Francis Tanzella, another person who appears to be very qualified to be able to evaluate their technology. Just looking at the ICCF17 schedule there are a whole host of very interesting presentations with most of the top names in the LENR world present (except for Leonardo Corporation). Hopefully there will be comprehensive conference proceedings available at some point.
