The Convectron fusion future beckons on the horizon
New technology as a valuable asset
Validation of the correctness of the concept and successful completion of the project will open global markets for the Convectron natural fusion reactor as a safe and sustainable source of primary energy. It will foster sustainable growth of the global economy, resolve major environmental impacts of ongoing fossil fuel consumption, stabilise the world market for fossil fuels, and preserve fossil fuels for alternative future use.
Multi-billion dollar budgets large-scale fusion
Existing magnetic and inertial research schemes for establishing nuclear fusion as a future power source have shown shifting and rather constant time horizons of some thirty years, and have used and will continue to use multi-billion dollar budgets. This fact clearly indicates that validation of the correctness of the Convectron concept, given appropriate patent protection, has the potential to bring considerable value to the Company.
Future value increase of the company
In the future this value can be procured in different ways, in particular by providing licenses, by production and sales of small-scale nuclear fusion reactors, even by operation of small-scale power plants, or by a combination of these options. At this stage of development it is not meaningful to make any precise and explicit statement concerning these activities, and especially concerning the possible future profitability of the Company. The market for energy is pretty large. For the investor who wants to get a feeling for the potential of the technology, the basic figures concerning the world market for energy as provided on the page "Energy market and durability" may be a guidance.
Fusion fuel deuterium practically inexhaustible
The fusion fuel is deuterium (D), an isotope of hydrogen (H), and present in water in a proportion of about 1 deuterium atom in 6,400 hydrogen atoms. A rough calculation indicates that the total amount of deuterium present in water on Earth represents an amount of energy of more than 100 million times the current yearly world consumption of primary energy. By human standards, this amount of energy is practically inexhaustible.
Nearly zero fuel cost
Deuterium in the form of heavy water (D2O) is currently available for a price of about € 0,30 per toe, corresponding to 7.33 barrels of oil. At an oil price of $ 80 per barrel and a €/$ rate of 0.80, the cost of the primary energy from deuterium is only 0.07% of the cost of the primary energy from oil. Therefore, the cost of deuterium, the fusion fuel, is practically speaking zero. The Convectron process would be the first to make this huge and attractive resource of primary energy available for large-scale commercial energy production.
Small-scale fusion future
The Convectron nuclear fusion reactor is small-scale by nature, and relatively simple in set-up, without costly and complicated apparatus as needed for tokamak or laser pellet fusion. Its output will typically be 1 to 3 MW per reactor. It enables modular design of power stations of every desirable size, and thereby highly decentralised power production. The energy production can take place where the users are.
Like conventional nuclear energy, its energy output will be converted to electricity, which in turn can be used to produce hydrogen. It has no negative environmental impact, and CO2 emissions are zero.
Decentralised energy production
The fuel to run a 20 MW plant for a whole year fits into a 20 litre barrel. This implies that logistics for fuel transport (transportation or pipelines) are practically none. The possibility of highly decentralised production, will strongly reduce the need for high voltage power transmission lines, and will thereby also reduce transmission losses.
Both batteries and hydrogen are suboptimal energy carriers for transportation. The transport sector will stay in need for hydrocarbon fuels. The Convectron reactor will provide the future primary energy source for the synthetic production of hydrocarbon fuels.
