Many people have already commented on the recently published article in the Greek newspaper Vima about Defklaion Green Technologies. I have been hoping to find a better translation of the article before commenting since I had a hard time following the Google translation. Now Defkalion has posted a much better English version of the on Defkalion GT’s forum, and it makes for interesting reading.
The author of the article, Anastasios Kafantaris, who identifies himself as an engineer visited Defkalion’s premises in Greece the day before they embarked for Canada. During the visit he witnessed an experiment which he describes as follows:
A plasma generating device heated nano-powder of nickel at 500 degrees Celsius, leading to alterations in the structure of nickel isotopes. Then, three catalysts were imported in the reaction chamber and a separation of the compressed diatomic hydrogen to monoatomic hydrogen followed. During the next phase, the monoatomic hydrogen got polarized and the orbit of the single electron was elongated. Emission of gamma radiation occurred, followed by absorption of this radiation and conversion to heat.
The author reports that in this experiment six times more energy was produced than input. DGT’s CTO John Hadjichristos says that in other experiments they have achieved a COP of up to 14. Kafantaris mentions that in looking over test records carried out by NASA employee Michael Nelson he noticed that one of the three secret catalysts that DGT uses was potassium carbonate.
DGT’s CEO Alex Xanthoulis discusses their move to Canada in the article, explaining that Greek scientific institutions and government agencies were not at all supportive. He says the company received offers of help from many countries, including China and Turkey. But Canada was the country they chose.
Canada accepted us unconditionally, sponsoring our research and giving us official certification that this is not a conventional nuclear technology. In addition they offer us free access to their national energy laboratories. However,” he added, “our research team is moving to Canada only temporarily, until the stages of prototyping, testing, approval and initial production are finished. After less than three years we plan to return to our homeland. Besides, the overall plan of our company is to be multinational with subsidiaries in all continents. Our goal is to license manufacturing of our systems to others. We will only keep providing the input material, the specially shaped nickel nano-powder.
