New Pictures and Updated Goals for EMC2 Fusion and their IEC Fusion Project

Ads : Nano Technology   Netbook    Technology News    Computer Software

EMC2 Fusion Development Corporation has updated their site

What EMC2 has been proven
* Fusion and Control of Electron Losses WB-6 2005
* Validation of WB-6 Results With Improved Diagnostics WB-7 2008 (this was getting 100,000 lower electron losses for IEC nuclear fusion)

* Confinement Behavior With Detailed Diagnostics WB-8 2010

Fusion R&D Phase 1 - Validate and extend WB-6 results with WB-7 Device:
1.5 years / $1.8M, Successfully Completed

Fusion R&D Phase 2 - Design, build and test larger scale WB-8 Polywell Device 2 years / $7M, In Process (should be done late in 2010 or in 2011)

Fusion R&D Phase 3 - Design, build and test full scale 100 MW Fusion System: 4 years / $200M, In Design Phase

The scale of the 100 Megawatt fusion system

Successful Phase 3 marks the end of fossil fuels, the world economy, revolutionizes clean energy and space propulsion and access.

Talk Polywell is discussing what the new information means

Dr Bussard's neutron claims for WB6 seem to be validated

Dr Richard Nebel's statement about knowing within 2 years if IEC fusion will work and scale to commercial energy generation

Update on IEC fusion with some technical discussion from the begining of 2009

Inertial Electrostatic fusion can make power at about 5/8 the cost of conventional plants (most is BOP, Balance of Plant costs) process steam at 1/3 the cost of others, make synfuels (ethanol) at less than $0.5/gallon, destroy nuclear waste, and make space engines commercial, etc, etc. The basic physics is summarized in Bussards IAC paper in October, 2006. And in much earlier papers in the early 1990's. All still valid.
