GeNiE Reactor technology is based on 20 years of experimental research by Global Energy Corporation,
JWK International, and SPAWAR Systems Center San Diego scientists and engineers. The results have been
published in over 20 peer-reviewed technical journal articles. Our most recent publications document the
ability to efficiently produce high-energy neutrons that are capable of fissioning uranium. We have answered
the critical scientific questions:
- Our experiments are repeatable.
- Our experiments have been replicated by others.
- Our experiments provide direct evidence that nuclear reactions are involved including the production of
high-energy neutrons. Although our experimental results are not predicted by current nuclear physics theories,
the results are real.
The GeNiE Reactor takes advantage of the efficiently produced high-energy neutrons in a proprietary
hybrid fusion, fast-fission reactor design to produce power from un-enriched uranium. The GeNiE Reactor
is not prone to melt down since it doesn't rely on a chain-reaction to produce high-energy neutrons. The
GeNiE Reactor will extract more energy from the fuel than conventional nuclear Reactors. The GeNiE Reactor
is lower cost since it doesn't required enriched uranium and it doesn't produce hazardous nuclear waste that
is costly to handle. By fissioning existing hazardous waste, the GeNiE Reactor can generate power and mitigate
existing hazardous waste at the same time. And by eliminating the need for enrichment, the GeNiE Reactor
removes all requirements for uranium enrichment except for weapons production, thereby removing the uncertainty
in the purpose of enrichment programs such as the current program in Iran.
Global Energy Corporation and their collaborators are currently experimenting with small pilot GeNiE
Reactors and are designing prototype GeNiE Reactors for commercial applications. While there are numerous
products possible, GEC is currently focusing on the GeNiE Hybrid Fusion, Fast-Fission Reactor that will use
either natural uranium or existing hazardous waste as fuel.
