Cold Fusion Redux? EU to Host Meeting on Fleischmann Pons Effect

A notice on the web site of ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, announces that there will be a meeting at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium on June 3 to discuss the Fleischmann Pons Effect.

The title of the meeting is “New advancements on the Fleischmann-Pons Effect: paving the way for a potential new clean renewable energy source?”

It goes on further to say:

Event co-organized by ENEA at the European Parliament. Under the patronage of Hon. Amalia Sartori, Chair of the ITRE Committee c / o European Parliament, the event sees participants between the Commissioner ENEA Giovanni Lelli, the Director of the Industrial Technologies Directorate Herbert Von Bose, the Director of the Sidney Kimmel Institute for Nuclear Renaissance (USA) Graham Hubler, and the Vice-Chancellor for Research, University of Missouri (USA) Robert Duncan.

Daniele Passerini, on his site has some more information about the meeting. The time and location is listed as:

European Parliament – Brussels
Friday, June 3, 2013 from 16:30 to 18:45,
Room Jozsef Antall 6Q1

A description of the purpose of the meeting reads:

The European community Should become aware of the “state-of-the-art” of the studies on the Fleischmann-Pons Effect of the phenomenon and potential future perspectives in the field of Material Science and renewable, clean energy. Energy densities Measured During Fleischmann and Pons Effect (FPE) are Hundreds, Thousands Thousands and even tens of times larger than the maximum energy associated to any known chemical process.

This effect was first Discovered in 1989 by two electrochemists Prof. Dr. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, by loading palladium with deuterium (an isotope of hydrogen). This excess energy is not associated with nuclear radiation and does not Appear When light water (H2O ) is used. ENEA (Italy), Stanford Research International (SRI, USA) and Energetics LLC (USA) Have Been collaborating on an alternative energy project since 2004 based upon the Fleischmann-Pons Effect (FPE). The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL, USA) joined the research team in 2008 and since 2010 Also the University of Missouri was involved in. the research in cooperation with Energetics .

All the collaborating institutions, after several years of scientific review process, do not question the existence of this very strong isotope effect as FPE Has Been Observed During the four experiments in laboratories . The proposed event, tries to present the “situation point” of this promising research field and even to design the future steps at EU and International level.
