FAQ’s

Process

What are muons?

Muons are particles that travel through space, and fall to earth in large quantities. It consists of an electron and two neutrinos.

What fuel is used to generate energy from INTEQ’s generator?

The muon.

What is the difference between the creation of energy by INTEQ and "plasma fusion"?

Plasma Fusion is based on extreme temperatures - up to 300 million degrees - to fuse deuterium and tritium particles, while the energy generated by INTEC is using muons (instead of high temperatures). INTEC’s process is different because it uses no fuel, while fusion plasma uses deuterium and tritium produced from lithium containing molten salt.

Why many governments are investing heavily in the fusion plasma, rather than other solutions?

The muon-catalyzed fusion is based on how the process occurs in nature and invested significant figures in the investigation in the early 1940's. Unfortunately many of these investigations found a number of problems - many of which scientists believe to be insurmountable.

As a result, recent research has turned to other methods, such as plasma and laser fusion, which tries to capture the fusion energy by brute force.

Validity and Testing

How INTEQ’s generator overcomes the "alpha sticking problem" that has caused many scientists to abandon research on muon-catalyzed fusion?

The "alpha sticking problem" refers to the concern that during the reaction catalyzed by muons, some muons - about 1% to 2% - are combined with by-products rather than a catalyst. This is not a problem for our generator.

INTEC has perfected a method to capture and produce energy from muons, without catalyzing or fusion.

How INTEQ’s generator manages energy output?

The comparison with the production of plasma fusion - Plasma Fusion consumes 18 times more energy than it produces. INTEQ’s generator requires no external energy to operate, which means 100% of the energy released by the process is available for use.

Has INTEQ’s generator been tested independently?

Our experienced team of scientists has done rigorous testing, and worldwide leading independent experts.
While our intellectual property is protected, we have policies in place to measure the results and ensure that this technology can be assessed formally and then share with the world as soon as possible.

Waste / Safety / Environmental Impact

What is the risk of a nuclear accident or meltdown?

None.

Unlike nuclear fission reactors today, there is no fissile material like uranium or plutonium used to generate energy. There is no fusion on our processes - so there is no chance of an accident, leakage or fusion.

What wastes are generated from the energy of the muon?

INTEQ’s generator creates no residue.

What types of emissions are produced?

This technology is so efficient that it produces no emissions.

Cost & Efficiency

How much energy is required by the INTEC’s generator to produce the same amount of energy as today's power plants?

Currently a one giga watt energy plant requires 4,4 million tons of coal to operate for a year, producing thousands of kilograms of carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and other pollutants.

INTEQ’s generator does NOT require any fuel in the process - and can run the same or greater amount of energy in a more efficient way without emitting greenhouse gases that cause climate change.

What is the cost of a power plant?

Any plant fueled by INTEQ’s technology would be 85% less expensive to build than a conventional nuclear power plant.

How much space is needed to set up a power plant?

The great advantage of this technology is that the equipment can be adapted to any size depending on the required need - or serving large geographic areas, or a much smaller scale to produce heat and electricity in space, aboard ships , mines, houses, etc. ... - The possibilities are endless.
