Today Defkalion Green Technologies released an outline of their business plan regarding their Hyperion LENR device and technical specifications regarding the same. The text of the press release is as follows:
PRAXEN – DEFKALION GREEN TECHNOLOGIES GLOBAL
Wednesday 30th November, 2011
Today, and through our company website, Praxen – Defkalion Green Technologies Global has disclosed its current work on Nickel and Hydrogen exothermic reaction using Chemically Assisted Low Energy Nuclear Reactions.
The provided Technical Specifications Sheet is a first preparation of our pre-industrial Hyperion product. This data has been tested with progress made towards the design of a final product ready for market entry in 2012.
Hyperion products will be introduced into the global market with applications for buildings, agriculture and industrial energy needs.
Beyond the completion of the final product with all necessary certificates, our company has three key objectives for 2012:
1. Agreements with companies for exclusive licenses according to country / territory
We have received interest in our license agreements from 850 companies from 60 countries. They have already received an invitation for testing our products on the basis of a license for their country. We expect to sign contracts in 2012 and have already started talks.
2. Third party independent tests for scientific purposes and advancement of theory
Praxen – Defkalion Green Technologies is a strong supporter of LENR technologies globally. Greece can become the global centre for R&D on LENR technologies. We have already received numerous requests from leading scientific authorities, academic institutions and national laboratories from key countries to conduct tests on our products. Our policy is to accept their requests, under agreed protocol, and to allow publication of their findings. The process of agreeing to dates for such tests depends on the availability of our staff and labs, keeping in mind that we run a business, not a technology show room.
3. R&D-based joint venture partnerships with companies in niche market applications
There are many applications that stand alone Hyperion products cannot service. In these cases, we will enter into joint venture agreements with companies that have specialized know-how and technologies in their field, but who will be able to utilize and capitalize on our technology to create entirely new products with ours. Examples of such partnerships have come from interested companies in the fields of marine propulsion, water desalination, off-shore drilling, trains, telecom towers, heavy vehicles, and micro energy sources. These agreements will be consistent with Praxen – Defkalion Green Technologies Global product development and R&D efforts. link
A strange adjunct to this press release is an an article that appeared yesterday, November 29, in the popular Swedish technology magazine NyTeknik. According to the story, Defkalion’s Alexandros Xanthoulis contacted NyTeknik via phone on August 5, a day after the business arrangement between Rossi and Defkalion apparently fell apart. At that time Rossi publicly stated that Defkalion did not possess the core technology for his e-Cat. But, according to the article, Xanthoulis stated: “Let’s say I have the formula of Rossi, but I’m not saying it officially. My scientists found a way to make it. They need three months…I know what he’s got in the reactor, I know everything. It was a spectroscopy made by the University of Siena… They tried his reactor without him understanding what they did”
According to the article, at that time apparently Defkalion representatives were not sure if there would be a reconciliation with Rossi. Defkalion in fact were very deferential and respectful in their public statements. In this light, the NYTeknik article states: “However, he made clear that he was not going to use the knowledge of Rossi’s reactor and that he wanted “fair play.“
Fair play and industrial espionage usually do not go hand and hand and Alexandros Xanthoulis’ admission that Rossi’s industrial secrets were obtained by nefarious means is quite stunning. Not only that, but to state that an otherwise respected university was part and parcel to such is equally so. It will be interesting to see how the University of Siena responds to these serious allegations.
Rossi has frequently been criticized as being excessively secretive, even paranoid at times. Yet, in light of these revelations, it would appear he had a right to be. It seems that despite all his caution, important details were still gleaned about his work without his knowledge. As the old saying goes “just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean people are aren’t out to get you” or, in this case, your industrial secrets.
Another angle to these bizarre revelations is the possible involvement of the associates of Prof. Francesco Piantelli. I have mentioned Prof. Piantelli on several occasions over the last month, wondering aloud as to the status of his work. His past research goes back two decades and has been almost exclusively conducted in association with the University of Siena. Let me make it clear that there is no hard evidence of Prof. Piantelli’s involvement. However, there are rumors floating about that the professor has entered into some kind of agreement with Defkalion. In a recent article on Defkalion in the Greek publication Tovima, a picture of the machine Piantelli uses to prepare his nickel powder appeared. Later that week Piantelli associate Roy Virgilio strongly denied any association with Defkalion and attempted to distance the Piantelli camp from them. He went on to say that the picture of the machine that appeared was used without authorization.
For now, it would be probably be best to leave the story as being based on verified statements by Alexander Xanthoulis of Defkalion, thus far unsubstantiated rumors by blog administrator Daniel Passerini (although admittedly he has usually been fairly accurate with the information he provides) and strong denials by Piantelli associate Roy Virgilio.
Andrea Rossi has remained quiet over the last 48 hours about current developments but, if history is an indication, I suspect that he will have something to say very shortly, PROBABLY IN ALL CAPS.
Update – 12-01-2011
WARNING: SOMEBODY IS ON THE ROAD SAYING THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED IN STEALING OUR TECHNOLOGY ( WHOSE PATENT HAS BEEN GRANTED IN ITALY AND IS PENDING IN THE WORLD) AND ARE TRYING TO SELL A MOCK UP SAYING IT IS AN UPGRADED COPY OF THE E-CAT. ATTENTION: NOBODY HAS EVER COPIED OUR TECHNOLOGY. PROBABLY THIS IS A STUNT AIMED TO COLLECT MONEY FROM UNCAUTIOUS BUYERS. WE JUST WANT TO MAKE EVERYBODY WELL CONSCIOUS OF THE FACT THAT WE ARE TOTALLY UNRELATED TO ANY PRODUCT THAT HAS NOT BEEN SPECIFICALLY MARKED BY US AND THAT HAS NOT OUR CERTIFICATION. AT THE MOMENT OUR E-CATS ARE FOR SALE ONLY FOR WHAT CONCERNS 1 THERMAL MW PLANTS, BECAUSE THE 10 KW E-CATS ARE NOT YET CERTIFIED.
Update – 12-01-2011
Per a new article in NyTeknik: “Regarding the earlier claim from Defkalion about the knowledge of what’s inside Rossi’s reactor, Defkalion has now clarified that the spectroscopy was performed at the University of Padua (not Siena), where this analysis actually was performed, commisioned by Rossi.
The results of this measurement was published by Rossi and Focardi in their paper from 2010, describing the technology.“
Also of note, there has been no further substantiation of the rumor that Prof. Francesco Piantelli has entered into a contractual arrangement or other collaboration with Defkalion Green Technologies.
