"BlackLight Power, Inc. is the inventor of a paradigm-shifting new primary energy source and a new field of hydrogen chemistry with broad commercial applications. BlackLight has invented a new primary energy source with applications to Heating, Central Power, Motive Power, and Micro-Distributed power generation. This relies on a new chemical process of releasing the latent energy of the hydrogen atom, the BlackLight Process. In this process, the electron in an ordinary hydrogen atom is induced to move closer to the proton, below the prior-known ground state. Hydrogen gas derived from water serves as the fuel." -- http://www.blacklightpower.com/ home page

This new process could allegedly generate electricity for as cheap as 1 cent/kw-hour -- two to four times cheaper than any other contemporary power sources.

On May 28, 2008, the company announced that they have a 50 kW prototype ready to take commercial. On Oct. 20, 2008 they announced that Rowan University has replicated BLP's 1 kW and 50 kW processes.

"BlackLight Power, Inc., has already licensed to seven utilities 8,250 megawatts of clean, safe hydrino generation fueled by water – eliminating $2 billion/year in fuel costs." (Hoover Dam’s capacity is 2,080 megawatts.) -- Gary Vesperman; June 26, 2010

BlackLight Power Process
Blacklight's water bath cell
Blacklight's water bath cell
"BlackLight Power, Inc. has created a commercially competitive, nonpolluting new primary source of energy. Atomic hydrogen ordinarily has a stable electronic state that is much higher in energy than allowed by thermodynamic laws. From the solved physical structure of electrons in atoms, a process to release the latent energy of the hydrogen atom was invented. In BlackLight's patented process, atomic hydrogen is reacted with a catalyst, and energy is released as the electrons of atomic hydrogen are induced by the catalyst to undergo transitions to lower energy levels to form lower-energy hydrogen atoms called hydrinos. Since hydrinos have energy levels much lower than uncatalyzed hydrogen atoms, the energy release is intermediate between conventional chemical and nuclear energies. The net energy released may be over one hundred times that of combustion with power densities like those of fossil fuel combustion and nuclear power plants. Thus, the catalysis of atomic hydrogen, the BlackLight Process, represents a potential new source of energy. The hydrogen fuel is obtained by diverting a fraction of the output energy of the process to power the electrolysis of water into its elemental constituents. With water as the fuel, the operational cost of BlackLight Power generators will be very inexpensive. Moreover, rather than air pollutants or radioactive waste, novel hydrogen compounds with potential commercial applications are the by-products. The BlackLight Process offers a prospectively efficient, clean, cheap, and versatile thermal energy source.
"Two of the potential applications of its technology are in heating and electric power production. The Company believes that heat generating prototypes have shown the BlackLight Process to be potentially competitive with existing primary generation sources over a range of scales from microdistributed to central power generation. The BlackLight Process thermal power source may be ideal for interfacing with commercially available electric power generating equipment including Sterling engines and turbines for microdistributed and distributed electrical applications, respectively. On larger scales, the BlackLight technology is well-suited for the utility industries and could eliminate problems such as those arising from the variable regional supply and price of fuels such as coal and natural gas, the cost of building out a suitable supporting infrastructure and transmission grids, and eliminate pollution, greenhouse gas emission and other externalities.
BlackLight Power Plants
"The BlackLight Process is a new primary energy source that has unique competitive advantages in all energy markets: electricity, heat, cogeneration (electricity production with waste heat recovery and utilization), and motive power. BlackLight Power has recently achieved a breakthrough in power generation by the invention of a solid fuel that uses conventional chemical reactions to generate the catalyst and atomic hydrogen at high reactant densities that in turn controllably achieves very high power densities. The energy gain is well above that required to regenerate the solid fuel, and experimental evidence confirms the theoretical energy balance per weight of the hydrogen consumed of 1000 times that of the most energetic fuel known. Consequently, the mass balance and cost per unit energy is projected to be much lower than that of burning fossil fuels. Plant designs utilize continuous regeneration of the solid fuel mixture using known industrial processes, and the only consumable, hydrogen, is obtained ultimately from water due to the enormous net energy release relative to combustion.
"Furthermore, the process is nonpolluting. Since the identified more-stable-hydrogen (dihydrino) molecule byproduct is stable and lighter-than-air, it cannot accumulate in the Earth's atmosphere. Thus, the enormous annual fossil fuel cost and the environmental impact to the air, water, and ground of producing, handling, and using fossil fuels may be eliminated. Similarly, the radioactive waste from nuclear plants, their tremendous infrastructure costs, and security and accident risks may also be avoided. Rather than pollutants the byproducts have significant advanced technology applications based on their stability characteristics (See Chemical Technologies). For example, hydrino hydride ions having extraordinary binding energies may stabilize a cation (positively-charged ion of a battery) in an extraordinarily high oxidation state as the basis of a high voltage battery, and significant applications exist for the corresponding dihydrino molecules wherein the excited vibration-rotational levels could be the basis of a UV laser that could significantly advance photolithography and line-of-sight telecommunications.
"With simple systems, commercial levels of power can be generated at typical power-plant operating temperatures and at higher power densities. The power was also found to be linearly scalable. BlackLight's commercial development of the energy technologies will focus on optimization of the BlackLight Process, energy device optimization, staged scale-up of power devices, and build-out of power plants. BlackLight expects scale-up engineering activity to take place in parallel with process optimization and device optimization, and intends to significantly increase the number of engineers and scientists dedicated to commercial development. One of the activities of our engineers will be interfacing with the thousands of engineers at design, architecture, and engineering firms around the world, contracted to perform certain aspects of the development work. Based on empirical data and experience, BlackLight believes it is reasonable to scale in factors of ten to one hundred. Then, BlackLight intends to rely on existing technologies to convert thermal power to electric power. As BlackLight devices generate surface heat at grades comparable to existing commercial fire boxes in natural gas and coal-fired plants, existing heat-to-electric technologies such as gas turbine, micro-turbine and Sterling engines can be melded with BlackLight power cells to generate electricity, as well as space and process heat.
"BlackLight intends to incrementally pursue commercial development of power plants of all useful scales. This will be done through a combination of internal engineering and development, external consultants and outsourcing, licensed joint ventures and acquisition of engineering and design companies. BlackLight intends to own an interest in power production businesses at the distributed and central power station scale (see Licensing Strategy). BlackLight anticipates contracting for turnkey plants to be built and operated by architect and engineering firms and original equipment manufacturers.
"Due to the unique capabilities of our power source, new power-generation business opportunities of distributed generation and hydrogen-fuel production with large markets exist even at power scales that are achievable in the near term. In case of the latter application, consider that the average US gas station pumps about 2000 gallons of gasoline per day corresponding to an energy equivalent of 3 MW of electricity that could be provided by using the BlackLight Process. Thus, power cells of the 1-10 MW electric scale may be a competitive solution for generating electricity locally at gas stations, for example, while also producing hydrogen gas from the electrolysis of water using the electrical output temporarily diverted from the local grid as a replacement for gasoline. The savings of avoiding transmission and distribution costs represent a considerable cost advantage that is often half the price of electricity. Considering the absence of fuel costs that is permissive of reduced complexity and costs of power-conversion equipment, lack of pollution, the ability to economically produce hydrogen on-site for use in internal combustion engines and PEM fuel cells, BlackLight represents for the first time a possibility to realize the vision of the hydrogen economy that frees the world from fossil fuels."

Overview by Ken Rauen

by Ken Rauen, for New Energy Congress, Nov. 29, 2005


Blacklight Power, Inc., and its founder, Randy Mills, has a new energy process based upon the formation of a shrunken form of hydrogen from normal hydrogen. The new form of hydrogen is called a "hydrino." Hydrogen normally exists in a ground state (the state of minimum energy under normal circumstances) that quantum mechanics (QM) calls the N=1 state. Allowed energy states of an atom fit integer values of 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on;that is the significance of the word, "quantum." The higher the number, the higher the energy state. When an atom at a high energy state (also called an excited state) falls to a lower level, energy is released. This usually occurs as a photon of light. The observed line spectra emissions of atoms corresponds to these transitions.

The ultraviolet line spectra of the sun are unexplained by classical QM. To explain the UV spectrum of the sun from hydrogen (the primary constituent of the sun), Mills proposed fractional quantum states, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, and so on. These energy transitions fit the UV spectrum of the sun, hence the name, Blacklight Power. Since sub-quantum atoms are non-radiative, they are an explanation for "dark matter" that keeps galaxies together by gravity and not flying apart at the high rotational speeds of many galaxies.

BLP produces hydrinos by catalytic thermal processes in plasma, initially found with potassium as the catalyst. The energy released in these sub-ground state transitions is larger than any known chemical reaction and the Mills process was initially thought to be a cold fusion phenomenon. The energy level is not as great as nuclear reactions; it is intermediate to nuclear and chemical reaction energies. It is in a category by itself.

BLP has a terriffic energy producing process that liberates heat in the 1000 degree F range, but it has chosen to first develop the hydrino technology into a new class of chemical compounds, as the hydrino is chemically reactive.
