For Humanity to Move Forward, We Need Fusion Energy Now

Fusion Energy - Freedom From Pollution and Prosperity for All

Fossil fuels have too little energy density for our needs, so we have to burn 14 billion tons per year, creating pollution that kills 7 million a year.  To move past the polluting fossil fuel age, we need  technologies based on sustainable energy that is reliable, clean, cheap and safe.  Fusion energy pB11 fuel can solve our global environmental issues and at the same time lift the standard of living for all. Our pB11 fusion fuel produces no radioactive waste and it is millions of times more powerful than any energy source we use today. This is because of the energy density of pB11 fuel - see the cubes image.  This fusion fuel is the core of the energy revolution.

The Energy Density Of pB11 Leads to a New Renaissance, To Social & Ecological Harmony

A switch to fusion energy can bring peace to humanity because when
energy becomes nearly free
, resource wars will no longer play a
central role in our global economy and finance.  Just as fossil fuels lifted the global standard of living because its energy density was far higher than energy from wood,   fusion energy, with millions of times higher energy density can revolutionize human society, providing a decent standard of living for every person, while maintaining a sustainable global ecology.

Energy Density: oil vs pB11


Fusion Energy - Cheap, Clean and Safe Energy

Direct and Indirect Fossil Fuel Costs are over $10 trillion per year, siphoning money from everyone to a few thousand billionaire shareholders, driving a downwards economic cycle. Check out this global, annual fossil fuels costs breakdown.

Kleptocracy or Meritocracy

 The profits from fossil fuels concentrate resources into the hands of a few thousand "oiligarchs" who control both the global petroleum and the global financial companies. 

Fossil fuel expenses and pollution have contributed to the pandemic by weakening the resistance of the population and diverting vital resources away from health services. See full story—30 min video

Why Solar and Wind Can't Do It Alone

Solar and wind lack the power density and continuous availability to replace fossil fuels by themselves. That would require covering 20% of the world's land and strip-mining the ocean bottoms. The amount of land needed for solar and wind farms would take away from lands we need for reforestation.  Because the energy density of wind and solar is very low, the world simply can not fully rely on these energy sources.  This is why, without fusion, we can't now move away from  fossil fuels.  They remain the main reliable energy sources of today, the base-load energy sources.  Fusion energy with pB11 can easily take over as a base-load energy source easily. 

We are on the Fastest Path to Fusion Energy

Humanity needs to switch to a more powerful, denser source of energy that can entirely replace fossil fuels. That source is fusion energy. LPPFusion is developing the densest form of fusion, with the most power in the least space. It is what we call Focus Fusion: safe, clean, unlimited and far cheaper  than any present-day energy source. We are also on the fastest path to fusion. Our published experimental results are thousands of times better than that of any other private fusion company, and close to the best results from government fusion projects with far more resources.

  • Helium is the only by-product of our reaction.
  • Our technology produces no radioactive waste.
  • Our two fuel sources, hydrogen and boron, are essentially unlimited. They come from regular water, seawater, and boron deposits, enough to last billions of years.
  • We can spread out our small generators to decentralize the power grid and reduce dependency on the fragile grid system.

Direct Conversion to Electricity

Since Edison’s time, there's been one main way to produce electricity. A heat source — whether it's coal, oil, or nuclear fission — boils water to produce steam that spins the turbine of an electric generator.

Our Focus Fusion generators will be different · Free of expensive turbines and generators, we will produce electricity in a fundamentally different and much cheaper way than previous energy sources. The energy from fusion comes out of the same process that powers the sun and is released in the form of a high-energy, electrically-charged beam of helium nuclei. This electric energy is captured by an electric circuit by allowing the pulsed beam to generate electric currents through a series of coils, similar to how a transformer or a particle accelerator in reverse works. The process of induction used here has been employed in electrical technology since the 19th century — we've just figured out an efficient way to harness it.

This conversion to electricity can be highly efficient, probably around 70%, and fuel costs will be negligible, as a 5 MW plant will require only 10 pounds of highly-attainable hydrogen-boron (pB11) fuel per year.

A 5 MW Focus Fusion generator, which will not require expensive turbines, will cost around $300,000 and produce electricity for less than half a cent per kWh, ten times less than the cheapest current technology.

Why is LPPFusion Different From Other Fusion Companies

We’ve chosen a far easier path than that pursued by the big government-backed fusion energy research and development efforts. They are trying to stabilize the natural instabilities — wiggliness — of the extremely hot, electrically conducting plasma where the fusion reactions occur. Our strategy is to use these natural instabilities of plasmas to produce energy, instead of fighting them. And we use a different fuel — hydrogen-boron (pB11) fuel— which produces no radioactive waste. This allows us to use the dense plasma focus or DPF device, that is so small you can hold its heart - the electrodes - in your hands. The DPF device was invented in the 1960's by other fusion researchers but we've improved it.

Because we've chosen an easier path, we’ve already achieved the highest confined temperatures of any fusion device in the world and are second in the race to produce more energy out of our DPF device than goes into it,  with only $8 million invested so far. We believe we are way ahead of many projects with billions behind them and thousands of times ahead of any other privately financed fusion energy R&D projects.

Your Investment Will Help Make Universal Clean Energy a Reality

We'll use our investment round to fund the final stage of our research that will lead to the demonstration of net energy production. Your money will be used to finance at least a year of research, hiring at least one more researcher.

We've proven that we can achieve the highest confined temperatures of any fusion device in the world. Our next research step is to prove that we can produce more energy than we put in. Success in this research will enable us, with $50-100 million in additional government and grant funding, to carry out a 3-year engineering and development program that will produce a working prototype generator that will eventually be suitable for mass production.

Neither governments nor big corporations are funding this research. But you can.


Usually science research projects of national importance for humanity are funded with tax money. But fusion research does not have 4% of the annual budget of the Apollo program, not a half percent of that of the 2003 Iraq War. Unfortunately our government has not invested in fusion, and certainly not in Focus Fusion. Our budget is $700,000 a year--too little for optimum speed.

Historically, those who ruled society stood in the way of the development of new sources of energy, because control over power production has always been tied up with political and economic power. New ways of producing power threaten the Powers That Be. When feudal lords were the Powers That Be, they fought against the use of coal, which threatened their fuel monopoly based on the woodlands. But those kings and lords were swept aside by revolutions  and new types of societies developed fossil fuel power as the basis of the Industrial Revolution. Society went forward and those Powers that Be became the Powers that Were.

Fusion power threatens the multi-trillion-dollar profits of the fossil-fuel industry and of the world financial system, which has been tightly tied to petroleum for decades. Now you have the power to decide if the oil, gas and coal barons--today's Powers That Be--will become the Powers that Were. By funding fusion, you can Flip the Power.
