Professor Sven Kullander to Give Public Lecture on Hot and Cold Fusion in November

Orebro University in Sweden has released an announcement of a public lecture by University of Uppsala Professor Sven Kullander about the future of nuclear power.

The announcement (Google translation) reads as follows:

Date: 2011-11-23
Time: 18:30 to 20:00
Location: Lecture Hall T, Technology Building

Sven Kullander, Professor of High Energy Physics at Uppsala University, chairman of the Royal Academy of energy committee

In the wake of Fukushima-crash discussion again of the future nuclear power. The rush to replace the world’s eighty percent dependent on fossil fuels coal, oil and gas. Severe climate change would be difficult to avoid without massive expansion of both renewable energy and nuclear power.

Very great efforts are made to substantially improve today’s nuclear reactors. Within a few decades are expected to see a new type of reactors, breeder reactors, both safer and more efficient than current reactors. In an even longer perspective, the hope is that hot fusion on a large scale to provide mankind with almost infinite amount of energy.

But maybe all these planned large-scale facilities to competition of small reactors that could be every man and woman were property. The cold fusion has recently been developed in Bologna can be housed in an apparatus which is not much bigger than a coffee maker and generating energy only with a few teaspoons of nickel powder.

Welcome! Free admission!

Sven Kullander has been working with Andrea Rossi this year and has reported on his observationa and testing of an operating E-Cat. From the announcement above it’s clear that he will be talking about Rossi’s technology, and this lecture will take place following the scheduled launch of the first E-Cat power plant in October, so perhaps there will be considerably more interest in the subject at that point than there is currently.

The fact that he is willing to schedule a public lecture at this point on Rossi’s technology shows that he feels it is a significant topic and potentially superior to today’s nuclear technology.
