Many thanks to AlainCo for reporting about the LENR-Cities sponsored meeting in Milan yesterday about the LENRG ecosystem, and specifically Airbus’s involvement
He has provided a report of the meeting at LENR-Cities here: http://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/1337-LENRG-G-Day-Milano-Airbus-and-LENR/
Below is a summary he posted on this thread here at ECW. I have taken the liberty of making some corrections for English usage.
The great news for the experimenters is that if one has a working reactor of COP>3, Airbus can provide an in-house developped 35% @1000°C efficient engine (a little more with some improvements).
They confirm their support of LENRG, but they have some requirements:
– a good academic certfications (this is why they provide the engine)
– efficient and light technology, for aerospace applications
– a theory, even restricted, that explains what are important parameters and which allows for continuous improvements by engineers
About the patent, basically no comment; f course it is based on lab work, and the patent is only on an improved control method … reactions are too much documented already to be patented … He talked me of old results, like thermacore … this guys knows the subject 😉
For the rest there have been presentations of the organization and the business model.
LENR-Cities will control the trajectory of the ecosystem, with a company neutral approach. They already have packages research programs, that are sold.
The first is the “certification” like what Airbus demanded and propose help. The second is on nuclear waste remediation.
Programs are containers that are funded by industrialists (and agencies) and which are associated to a few scientific projects. There there are already universities that will work in the UK, Italy, and even Switzerland.
They will created a financial compat LENR-Venture which will be separate from LENR-Cities, and which will be organizing an industrial crowdfunding of research programs, but also of industrial programs.
Another idea that is they sell “life-insurance” for industrialists. They pay a fee, and if the risk of LENR is real they will have access at low cost to technology, and industrial infrastructures. It is like having health insurance in case you get old: to have access to a cheaper hospital room (because you own the walls).
Their idea is that the most important is not to be the first to have a working reactor, but to be well organized to develop applications and create the market.
It is not innovation like done with Edison; more like Uber & AirBnb. Their approach is influenced by the digital economy business model — consumer centric (here the industrialist and scientists), sharing economy, viral development.
Imagine that you have a house with a free room and no money. A tourist has money but cannot call every individual room owner. AirBnb just proposes a platform where you can ask for a room in your preferred place, and if it matches you will rent your room.
(separate comment by AlainCo.)
A UK university , an Italian University, are to participate in precise research programs. Those universities are linked to local technology cluster, so if successful it can trigger big business interest.
Two labs will be constructed in UK and Italy for that. One is very competent in energy technologies of all kinds.
another is good in nanostructured material, cavitation, analysis.
The program on nuclear waste remediation is attracting many more countries than the LENR validation project … that is the power of nuke!
