Defkalion Green Technologies have been quiet recently, they say because of reorganization of their R&D centers, but they have made a new announcement on their website:
January 16, 2014
We are pleased to announce that our timetable for 2014 is as follows:
Currently we are developing our R 6 technology in our three laboratories. We are doing this using robust calorimetric methods, without the use of water coolant, based on both positive and negative experiences we have gained.
Concurrently we are finalizing the heat management and control electronic subsystems for the final pre-industrial prototype.
Several third party independent tests from international organizations, universities and teams are expected to present their results thus verifying our recent technological and scientific breakthroughs.
Accordingly we expect the commercialization of our technologies in the 3rd quarter of 2014. For further inquiries please contact us through our offices
Defkalion has been pretty quiet for the last few months, so it’s good to get something of an update — but there doesn’t seem to be much definite here. They talk about ‘expecting’ things to happen, which seems somewhat vague, and in the past they have made a number of similar statements where the things they have projected have not happened. The pre-industrial prototype they speak of here has been under development for a long time; at one time they were talking about having it ready in the summer of 2012.
If Rossi/Cherokee make strong progress with the E-Cat, and start industrializing production it’s going to be harder for Defkalion to attract attention and finance, unless they can demonstrate they have a significantly superior product.
