CLEAN, SAFE, RELIABLE AND UNLIMITED ENERGY
HB11 Energy is developing Laser Hydrogen Boron-11 fusion to provide a new source of unlimited, clean, safe and reliable energy. Our mission is to generate electricity using laser-ignited non-thermal fusion.
The global energy crisis is real, ongoing and in fact, it’s getting worse. It’s primary cause is our reliance on non-renewable sources, which in turn produce carbon emissions that have created climate change. But even renewables like wind and solar have limitations in terms of the very large-scale and long term energy storage they require. The solution is Fusion Energy.
HB11 Energy aims to create a new source of clean, safe and reliable energy using laser technology to fuse Hydrogen and Boron-11. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, while Boron-11 comprises some 80% of all Boron found in nature, is readily available and is a stable, non-radioactive isotope.
Unlike other nuclear and fossil-fuel burning plants, our energy generating process does not require large plants with steam turbines and does not generate any dangerous radioactive waste. There’s no risk of a reactor meltdown and the energy generated can be directed straight to the grid.
HB11 is the future of clean energy. We’re creating the possibility of a world powered by clean, safe and unlimited electricity, generated by small reactors that use abundant fuels and do not create any harmful waste.
no radioactive waste
NO RISK OF REACTOR MELT-DOWN
FUEL IS UNLIMITED AND SAfe
LOW INFRASTRUCTURE COSTS
- Electricity generated directly – Steam turbines not required
- Not intermittent – reducing the need for very expensive electricity storage infrastructure required for solar and wind energy
- Scalable – Ideally suited for both grid integration and remote power generation
- Lack of radioactive materials – will open new market opportunities not possible with fission-based nuclear plants or DT fusion reactor concepts
LASER FUSION OF HYDROGEN AND BORON-11
Technology developed by UNSW Sydney Emeritus Professor Heinrich Hora, has been granted patents for its laser-driven technique for creating fusion energy. Unlike earlier methods, the technique is completely safe as it does not rely on radioactive fuel and leaves no toxic radioactive waste.
A laser-driven technique for creating fusion that dispenses with the need for radioactive fuel elements and leaves no toxic radioactive waste is now within reach, say researchers. Dramatic advances in powerful, high-intensity lasers are making it viable for scientists to pursue what was once thought impossible: creating fusion energy based on hydrogen-boron reactions. And an… Read More
