Australian researchers receive Deakin Uni. Grant to develop advanced fuels for generating clean, safe, fusion energy
The world’s first research project on advanced fuel development for hydrogen-boron fusion will be launched between HB11 Energy and Deakin University at the Institute for Frontier Materials in Geelong Former CEO of ANSTO, Dr. Adi Paterson, joins the HB11 Scientific Advisory Board The project will support a growing international consortium of researchers in developing laser hydrogen-boron fusion energy, one of the few means of producing clean energy at large scale This project has the potential to re-establish Australia as a leader in fusion energy research and clean energy technology ARC Linkage Grant… Read More
Fusion energy start-up HB11 Energy launched to accelerate German-Australian physicist Heinrich Hora’s vision of clean, safe and abundant fusion energy.
HB11 Energy raised $A 4.6M in an over-subscribed pre-seed financing round. HB11 Energy has launched its experimental program developing a new source of clean, safe and reliable electricity using the fusion hydrogen and boron-11 (the HB11 reaction). New on the board: German entrepreneur, investor and multiple founder Lukasz Gadowski. HB11 Energy Holdings Pty Ltd recently closed its oversubscribed pre-seed fundraise at $A4.6M and commenced its experimental program after opening the round in April 2020. This investment has established Australia’s first commercial fusion energy company, which will now drive an international R&D program… Read More
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 Australian physicist is in the lead, armed with a patented design and working with international collaborators on the remaining scientific challenges. In a paper in the scientific journal Laser and Particle Beams, lead author Heinrich Hora from UNSW Sydney and international… Read More
