HOW DOES SAFIRE WORK?
The SAFIRE PROJECT was created to test the Electric Sun model. Prior to developing a test program, Montgomery Childs ran a 'Design of Experiments' to determine if the model might actually be testable; and came to the conclusion that it was. Childs proposed that the underlying premise of the model could best be expressed by the concept of: 'Charged plasma affecting matter of a different electrical potential'. This concept is at the core of all the engineering and experimentation of the SAFIRE PROJECT
"Charged plasma affecting matter of a different electrical potential."
We introduce hydrogen into the chamber.
The anode is a metal alloy.
The power going in is electrical.
The reaction produces high-energy levels which translate to thermal heat.
The heat creates steam to run a turbine to generate electricity.
The Hydrogen can be captured and reused.
The output is electricity: the majority going to an external grid, and the rest routed back to the power input.
To date, after the reactions, all measurements and analyses show this to be a clean process, producing no negative radioactive side-effects.
In fact, note that nuclear radioactive materials are not required.
SAFIRE creates excess heat in a clean process which all tests and analyses to date reveal does not produce any radioactive emissions or waste.
The SAFIRE process can also use radioactive elements as fuel. The elemental transmutation will remediate the radioactive waste back into base elements, rendering it benign.
