Nissan Researchers to Present at Japan Cold Fusion Meeting (Update)

UPDATE (Mar 21, 2017)

I have made some inquiries about this presentation. The conference organizers informed me that the proceedings of the conference will be published in June 2017 on their website at http://jcfrs.org/ , and nothing before them. I also contacted a member of the Nissan team asking if they could share a paper or slides. He responded that they could not, because he said they don’t understand this phenomena correctly, but after they understand it they would publish a paper in the future.

Thanks to Ing. Michelangelo De Meo for posting the following abstract on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. A group of researchers from automaker Nissan will be making a presentation at the upcoming 17th Meeting of the Japan CF-Research Society that will be held on March 19-20 at the National Institute of Technology at Tokyo College.

Expectations on the new heat-generation-reaction between metal and hydrogen

The development of technologies friendly to the global environment is a major theme in the
automotive industry today. Especially, to reduce CO2 emission and to achieve cleaner exhaust
emissions, Electrical Vehicle, EV, has received a lot of attention in recent years. The sales numbers
of 100%-EV was around 6 times higher for the past 5 years. 100%-EV means that it does not have
any other power source except motors. Nissan launched it, named LEAF, in 2010 and the total
number of sales exceeded 250,000. But some customers complains the mileage per 1 charge, around
200km. In particular, the mileage in winter season could decrease by half due to using of heater, this
should be solved.
In 2010, A. Rossi reported E-cat, Energy Catalyzer. This equipment can generate heat energy
from Ni and H2 reaction and the energy is larger than input one. This experiment was replicated by
A Parkhomov but the reaction mechanism has NOT been clarified [1-2]. If we can use this heat
energy as a heater application into EV, the problem of short mileage caused by using heater will be
solved, the EV with this equipment will be a candidate for customers who have a sense of
dissatisfaction that they should charge very often.
In this report we will report 2 things. The first one is the experimental results regarding to
reproducing Parkhomov’s experiment with some disclosing experimental conditions using
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (STA-PT1600, Linseis Inc.). This DSC can measure generated
heat within a tolerance of 2%. The second one is our expectation on this reaction for automotive
potential.

It’s very interesting to see a company as large as Nissan taking an active interest in LENR as a means of developing electronic vehicles, and also that they have worked on reproducing Alexander Parkhomov’s work and will be presenting some experimental results. I hope we can get more details about their findings. A company like Nissan should have the funds, facilities and equipment to carry out extensive and detailed testing, a luxury that many independent researchers can not often afford.
