Menlo Park, California based company Solar Hydrogen Trends have issued a press release which provides comments from its Chief Scientist, Konstantin Balakiryan about the process involved in their claimed process of converting 1 liter of water into 1kg of hydrogen.
The title of the press release is ‘Solar Hydrogen Trends Inc. Chief Scientist Konstantin Balakiryan Reveals the Secrets of the Hydrogen Reactor “Symphony 7A”‘, and consists of Balakiryan responding to statements that have been posted on various web forums over the last few months. One of the statements that he responds to is that the process is LENR. He writes:
‘We have been avoiding using this term for some time because we are seriously investigating, and treat the scientific work and the description of physical phenomena, with the utmost of respect. We never display our wishful thinking as if it were reality We can confidently state that in Symphony 7A there is a transmutation process of atoms of oxygen into hydrogen.
‘Judge for Yourself: The composition of the gas mass on the exit of the hydrogen reactor in one hour makes more than 7 kg of pure hydrogen. Since the working substance in the Symphony 7A is water, then its decomposition product can only be oxygen and hydrogen. There is no oxygen on exit. However, there is hydrogen which is eight times more than it should be. And where is the oxygen? There should be 6.2 kg. But there is not. Leakage of oxygen is excluded, because we know how volatile hydrogen is, and we made sure that our hydrogen reactor is hermetically sealed.
‘The answer is clear – “This is transmutation!”
However transmutation of oxygen atoms to hydrogen atoms (reaction) at temperatures below 80F, and with energy input of 0.5 kWh can be called “low energy nuclear reactions” (cold fusion). There are no other options.
Therefore, this is classical LENR!!!’
The press release concludes by saying that it will take hundreds of scientists and experimentalists and theoretical physicists to understand the science involved in the Symphony 7A reactor, and the company reaches out to the scientific community to partner with them in this effort. It’s not clear from the press release, however, how they want to interface with the scientific community, and what kinds of help they are looking for.
