Blacklight Power launches home page make-over
Includes a new multimedia presentation touting "our next leap forward: the power of water. Using water as fuel, hydrinos release 200 times more energy than by burning hydrogen, making energy that's cheap, abundant, and generates no pollution or greenhouse gases."

The first frame of the flash show on the Blacklight home page.

When you load their home page, a flash screen rotates between various options for viewing.
The first menu option is "Power from Water: BlackLight Power's Vision and Mission".
Clicking on it opens a high-class video presentation that reviews the major renewable energy strides that have been made, and then points to hydrino power as being the next major breakthrough.
It is a classy video that combines the elements of music, text, and visually-fitting and appealing images to convey the messages.
"We've learned to harness the wind and the sun. We've harnessed fire and the strongest forces of nature. Introducing our next leap forward: the power of water. Using water as fuel, hydrinos release 200 times more energy than by burning hydrogen, making energy that's cheap, abundant, and generates no pollution or greenhouse gases. Welcome to the hydrino economy, where our prosperity is limited only by our ambition; where we can keep our world, our oceans, and the air we breathe clean for future generations energy made right here at home or anywhere in the world. Blacklight Power: the hydrino economy is coming."
The "hydrino economy" is a twist on the "hydrogen
economy", inasmuch as the hydrino is a new species of hydrogen discovered
and developed by Randall Mills of Blacklight.
Another option is to view a video of Rowan University's validation of
BlackLight's 50 kW hydrino reactor. Here is video, which has been
available on YouTube since October 26, 2008.
That screen also gives an option to download
Rowan's technical papers, dated May 2009.
Another option is to view Blacklight's Thermally Coupled Multi-Cell Reactor
statement page reads:
"The hydrino reactions are maintained and regenerated in a batch mode
using thermally-coupled multi-cells arranged in bundles wherein cells in the
power-production phase of the cycle heat cells in the regeneration phase.
In this intermittent cell power design, the thermal power is statistically
constant as the cell number becomes large, or the cells cycle is controlled to
achieve steady power. The conversion of thermal power to electrical power
requires the use of a heat engine exploiting a cycle such as a Rankine, Brayton,
Stirling, or steam-engine cycle. Due to the temperatures, economy goal,
and efficiency, the Rankine cycle is the most practical and can produce
electricity from a steam source at 3040% efficiency with a component capital
cost of about $300 per kW electric. Conservatively, assuming a conversion
efficiency of 25% the total cost with the addition of the boiler and chemical
components is estimated at $1380 per kW electric. The system applications
for distributed power (1 to 10 MW electric) and central generation retrofit and
green-field projects are projected to be very competitive relative to existing
power sources and systems. The specifics of a reaction system design are presented."
The next option is regarding Blacklight's Continuous Power System.
An excerpt from the summary
statement page, which repeats some of the pertinent info from the above summary,
"The hydrino reactions are maintained and regenerated continuously in each
cell wherein heat from the power production phase of a thermally reversible
cycle provides the energy for regeneration of the initial reactants from the
products. Since the reactants undergo both modes simultaneously in each
cell, the thermal power output from each cell is constant. [...] The
specifics of a reaction system design are presented."
The next option points to Blacklight's CIHT Cell and Applications for Motive
statement page reads:
"Rather than being limited by
conventional thermal-based systems, a paradigm shifting technology called CIHT
is enabled by the unique attributes of the catalyzed hydrino transition.
The exchange reactions are the basis of a unique electrochemical cell wherein
the power is developed by the reaction of hydrogen to form hydrinos.
Being direct electric, the capital costs are projected to be about $25/kW
electric, about two percent of thermal systems, with no infrastructure
requirements, and the system is deployable for essentially any application at
"In general, the chemical power
released during the formation of hydrinos from hydrogen can be harnessed for
motive power by several types of systems. The BlackLight Process has
four principal applications to motive power, (i) on-board powering of the
drive train with the game-changing CIHT technology, (ii) charging of electric
vehicle batteries (iii) generation of combustible fuels, specifically hydrogen
gas by electrolysis of water, and (iv) a hybrid electrical vehicle powered by
heat that is converted to electricity to charge batteries that drive electric
motors. The advantages and disadvantages are considered
for the most to least competitive design."
The last option is a bit puzzling as to its relevance to Blacklight Power and
energy. It is a link to Millsian.com,
a subsidiary of Blacklight. They provide software for molecular modeling.
This is apparently an outgrowth of the molecular and atomic studies they have
done relating to the hydrino -- a new species of hydrogen. They show a 3-D
model of DNA and of insulin, among other molecules.
