A new technology for generating low-cost energy claims to have the potential to solve the imminent global energy crisis as well as the problems of global warming. It is based on the discovery by Dr Mills of a low energy state of Hydrogen, the so called “Hydrino”.

In addition, the underlying theory, created by Dr Randell Mills, claims to be a more adequate model of reality than Orthodox Quantum Mechanics (QM).

These are bold claims, both of which would be worthy of the Nobel Prize if they are true. Let us see if the Millsian theory and its application for energy production might deserve this award.

Part 1. Energy generation

Dr. Randell Mills developed a quantum theory (see part 2 below) that predicted that Hydrogen can assume a lower level of energy than the so-called Ground State that Quantum Physics has believed to be the lowest level.

It is elementary knowledge in nuclear physics that the transition of an atom to a lower energy level is accompanied by the emission of large amounts of energy.

Dr. Mills realized that, if this would be manageable, it would be of great value to mankind. His theory indicated that the induction of such a transition might be possible through a process that should not demand much energy to initiate and keep going. So he set out to try to invent such a process and indeed was able to develop a method to prompt the generation of hydrinos from the hydrogen in water using a special catalyst (a chemical that mediates a reaction without being consumed).

The laboratory of Randell Mills has found that huge amounts of energy were emitted through this process as predicted by Millsian Physics. This is called the Catalyst Induced Hydrino Transition (CIHT) electrochemical cell technology.

Moreover, six independent top-level scientist teams have confirmed that the CIHT technology is capable of generating much larger amounts of heat from small amounts of water than any chemical process can bring about. This indicates that it is the result of hydrogen energy level transition as predicted by Millsian Theory. See  Press Release.

In Spring 2014, a more powerful, practical and effective method for extracting energy was invented. Instead of using the heat generated by the transformation of Hydrogen into of Hydrinos, the intense light emitted at the same moment is used for generation of electricity. The light intensity is 10.000 times or more the intensity of sunlight reaching the Earth, and this energy is transformed into electrical energy by low-cost high-energy photovoltaic cells (Sun cells) see image below. The light is generated inside a sphere (see the image below) that is lined with a photovoltaic surface that transforms it into electric energy.


This powerful electricity producing unit is actually very small. Below you find a unit producing energy for propelling a train fitted on top of its electric motor (a small number of such BLP-driven motor units are enough for driving a train).

In February 2015 a second major and decisive breakthrough was made. A method was discovered that enabled the continuous generation of light spikes with a high frequency – 1000 per second. This makes it possible to make effective, practically useful power generators. For more, see BlacklightPower – Important breakthrough.

This technology is pure and environment-friendly and can replace nuclear technology for a fraction of the investment cost of the latter and is much cheaper than other energy production methods as well. Moreover, the calculated energy production cost per kWh is projected to be considerably lower than for other energy sources, because it can run on plain tap water, and the key electricity-generating elements, the Solar Cells, are cheap. In addition, the catalyst can be easily regenerated and reused without any costly procedures.

The diagram shows that the energy cost of solar, water, wind and coal energy are all much higher than that of BlackLightPower.

Nuclear energy is not on the list, but according to Swedish estimates, it costs about 3 cents per kWh, that is 30 times more than the calculated cost of the CIHT system of BlacklightPower.


The application of the theory of Dr Mills for energy generation, appears to have the potential to replace environmentally harmful, and dangerous energy sources with a clean, safe and inexpensive fuel.

  • It uses common water as the sole required energy source. Moreover, the amounts are so small that for low-energy applications the humidity in the air could be used.
  • It can solve the expected energy crisis caused by oil shortage, because it can be used to power all forms of transport and generate equally large amounts of electricity as nuclear power, but at a much lower investment and operating cost.
  • It can be implemented quickly for grid-level electrical power because it can be retrofitted into existing oil-coal and nuclear power generators (for steam generation) without major and expensive rebuilding. However the direct power generation with light impulses may become preferred due to simplicity and effectiveness. Also the Sun-cells are scalable and don’t need large units. The grid can be decentralized with low construction costs.
  • It can be implemented quickly for engines, because it does not require new engines. This is because it can be used to generate hydrogen for internal combustion engines. However the direct generation of electricity may be preferred because it is effective, simple, and compact. The existing combustion motors may not always be necessary to eliminate because the electric motors are small and can be fitted on to the wheel axis.
  • In the future, it will be able to fuel all kinds of transport means from small cars to large trucks, trains, ships of any size and airplanes.
  • The problem of Greenhouse gases can be solved by the general application of this technology because it will not generate Greenhouse gasses and can replace present polluting energy sources.

The new SunCell technology is expected to rapidly enable the creation of large scale prototypes and commercialization is expected to occur during 2017 or 2018.

The technology is basically quite simple, and the company does not expect any major difficulties to provide a continuous supply of energy in various applications even at a large scale.

A superior alternative to Nuclear Power

Needless to say, this would be a superior alternative to nuclear energy, being completely pure, using very cheap, abundantly available fuel (water)  and requiring much lower investment and energy production costs.


BLP has the potential to solve the imminent global energy crisis as well as to eliminate the generation of greenhouse gases while providing energy in a sustainable way at a considerably lower cost than any other presently known system.

Technical issues regarding large-scale energy production using BLP have been solved and it is being prepared for commercial production.

I think this revolutionary invention qualifies Dr Randell Mills for a Nobel Prize in Physics. There are few if any other Nobel Price winning technologies with a comparable value to mankind.

Is it justified to question Hydrinos on the basis of Quantum Mechanics?

In spite of the remarkable and repeatedly confirmed experimental observations of energy generation indicating hydrogen transition into a lower energy level, some physicists have been expressing doubts because hydrogen is believed to be the lower state of energy according to Quantum Mechanics.

However, Millsian Physics is a different paradigm, a fundamentally different model of reality, not a version of Quantum Mechanics. Therefore it is not justified to reject features of Millsian physics that are inconsistent with Quantum Mechanics – that is exactly what can be expected with a new paradigm. For more about this issue, see “A challenge to critical physicists“.

The behavior of doubting physicists is similar to the famous physicist who declared that flying is incompatible with the laws of physics while the Lilienthal brothers were about to take off.

Moreover, the theory of Randell Mills has been more successful than Quantum Mechanics in important respects, indicating that is a better model of reality as shown in part 2.


2. Millsian theory – a contender to Quantum Mechanics

Extensive testing indicates that Quantum Mechanics is inferior to Millsian physics when it comes to predicting important properties of molecules. This indicates that Millsian theory is a superior model of reality in important respects. Let us have a  look at a crucial comparison.

The diagram below compares Dr. Mills’s theory with Quantum Mechanics regarding the ability to predict “molecular bond energy”, a property of molecules that has been measured very exactly.

The diagram represents the predictions of the bond energy of a large number of different molecules, comparing them with independently published University-level measurement results. The used formulas have been published so everybody can check the results.

If the predictions are correct, they will appear as a straight line of red points for Millsian (left) and black points for QM (right). This diagram is explained in detail in The case for Millsian Physics

Predicted vs measured values of total molecular bond energy

Conclusion: The straight line of red dots shows that here is an extraordinary correspondence between the predictions of Millsian Physics and measured results, in every case while Quantum Mechanics fails conspicuously.

Because these calculations were based on core mathematical elements of Millsian theory (according to a personal communication with Dr. Mills), and not on some fringe aspects, this successful result supports the theory as a whole.

Millsian theory – a more correct model of reality

The purpose of a scientific theory is to provide reliable means (models) for describing reality. The main criterion for the correctness of a theory is the ability to predict experimental measurement results. It is evident from these diagrams that Millsian physics fulfills this criterion excellently, while Orthodox Quantum Mechanics fails miserably, with very large errors (predicting close to zero while the measured value is high) indicating that the theory does not provide a very accurate representation of reality in this respect.

Actually, Millsian theory covers all orders of magnitude and has been able to successfully predict various properties of the universe at nuclear as well as a cosmological scale, see  “Successful performance of Millsian physics“.

The superior predictive power indicates that Millsian physics is closer to reality than Quantum Mechanics. In addition, Millsian Theory satisfies other major criteria of a more realistic theory, including greater simplicity, fewer postulates, and greater explanatory power.

A common feature of more realistic theories is the prediction of new, formerly unforeseen phenomena and practical applications, which also is the case for Millsian Theory  (see footnote).

Based on solidly confirmed theories of Physics

Differently from Quantum Mechanics, it is based on solidly confirmed theories of Physics, including Isaac Newton’s Laws of Physics, James Clerk Maxwell’s Equations on Electromagnetics, and Albert Einstein’s General and Special Laws of Relativity.

This is a remarkable achievement that the founders of Quantum Mechanics failed to accomplish although they devoted much effort to solve this issue, and finally gave up and introduced counter-intuitive postulates and concepts like treating electrons as indeterminate statistical entities, so as to be able to structure a mathematically consistent formulation of the theory.

Time to “detronize” Orthodox Quantum Mechanics?

It is a generally accepted procedure in science to abandon a theory with a smaller predictive power in favor of one with a greater power, especially so when the difference is considerable. Therefore, if physics follows the sound, established principles of Scientific Method, Millsian physics has to be taken as an apparently superior contender to Orthodox QM.

The demise of QM  because of its weaknesses has been predicted by other physicists, (for an explanation why the demise of QM has not already occurred, see “Critics are far off the mark“).

Actually, Erwin Schroedinger, one of the “fathers of QM” said, in his later years,  that he did not like Quantum Mechanics and that he was ashamed of being associated with it. Thereby this great genius joined his friend Albert Einstein, who likewise had doubts about Quantum Mechanics.

Nobel Priceworthy?

The discovery of Quantum Mechanics generated a number of Nobel Prizes, including the famous physicists Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Erwin Schroedinger, Werner von Heisenberg and several others. The basis for these awards was the predictive ability of Quantum Mechanical Theory.


As the precision of the predictions of the Millsian theory is considerably superior to QM in essential respects, I think it would be a violation of sound scientific principles not to consider Millsian theory Nobel Prize-worthy.

Quotes of a few experts

[Editings with bold and italics made by me]

“It would be irrational not to be very skeptical, and I was extremely skeptical.  However, after having reviewed Dr. Mills classical theory, participated in experimental designs and execution, and having reviewed vast amounts of other data BLP produced, I have found nothing that warrants rejection of their extraordinary claims, and I encourage aggressive optimization and fast track development of a scaled up prototype,”…“To be able to use hydrogen from water as a cheap and nonpolluting source of power would represent one of the most important technological breakthroughs in history.”

W. Henry Weinberg. Was a professor of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Applied Physics at California Institute of Technology for eighteen years, a professor of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Materials Science at University of California, Santa Barbara for six years, and co-founder and CTO of Symyx Technologies for 13 years.

“BLP has successfully fabricated and tested CIHT cells capable of producing net electrical output up to 50 times that input to maintain the process,”…“Some cells have produced steady power for over one month.  The power generation is consistent with Dr. Mills’ theory of energy release resulting from Hydrino formation.  No other source of energy could be identified.  The CIHT cell will use cheap, abundant, nontoxic, commodity chemicals, with no apparent long-term supply issues that might preclude commercial, high volume manufacturing.  The capital cost of the CIHT cell based on optimization of the cell dimensions is estimated to be under $100/kW compared to at least ten times that for fuel cells that further require a source of hydrogen or hydrogen gas and a fuel infrastructure.”
