LENR:  The Promise of Clean and Affordable Energy

LENR:  The Promise of Clean and Affordable Energy

Monday, March 10, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Tom Wind, Iowa DNR officer, will provide information about Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). This relatively new technology was discovered in 1989 by two electrochemists at the University of Utah. A few determined scientists around the world continued this research to fully develop this technology with a few small companies who are on the verge of commercializing products that use this technology. This technology allows controlled fusion of hydrogen into helium in small modular reactors that can fit on a table top.  The result is abundant thermal energy, with no radiation dangers, no radioactive byproducts and no combustion of fossil fuels. The cost of the hydrogen, the necessary materials and the catalysts are but a small fraction of the cost of traditional fossil fuels. Could this be the possible energy solution of the future?
