Discoveries Point to New Source of Low Cost Energy, Longer-Life Batteries, Magnetic Polymers, Lighter-Weight Materials; All Based on BlackLight Power’s Application of Dr. Randell Mills’ "Grand Unified Atomic Theory"

ONTARIO, Calif. – Oct. 6, 1999 – Dr. Randell Mills, CEO and chief researcher of BlackLight Power, unveils today, at the 1999 Pacific Conference on Chemistry and Spectroscopy, the results of his research into the area of novel hydrogen chemistry. The conference, with some 800 scientists and researchers in attendance, is co-sponsored by California-based sections of the American Chemical Society and the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.

During the meeting, Mills and his colleagues are reviewing BLP’s ongoing research which indicates the discovery of a vast new energy source and a new field of hydrogen chemistry. Joining BLP’s presenters today is Dr. Johannes Conrads, retired Chairman of the Board and past Director of INP, Greifswald, Germany, one of the world’s foremost research centers for the study of low temperature plasma physics. Dr. Conrads will be discussing INP’s independent study of Mills’ theory, which has demonstrated the generation of extreme ultraviolet emissions at low temperatures from atomic hydrogen.

"We are pleased to have Dr. Conrads join us today to report on his findings. In his 40 years as a researcher, he says he has never before observed the phenomena associated with the BlackLight Process," says Mills.

Rather than heating hydrogen to extreme temperatures or using high voltage, Mills and Conrads have demonstrated the capability independently of using the release of energy from hydrogen by specific catalysts to cause a plasma in hydrogen which may be observed and recorded by its ultraviolet emissions. "Essentially, we have shown we can produce heat, and therefore electricity, in a hydrogen plasma without a power input. We have a chemical reaction that produces valuable products," said Mills. Conrads’ findings support and underscore the potential for revolutionary applications of the Mills Process in the fields of chemistry and energy.

The world could have a new source of low-cost, renewable, pollution-free energy because these reactions can be harnessed to create electricity. When hydrogen transitions to these lower stable states, energy in the form of extreme ultraviolet light is released. Extraordinary compounds are formed as by-product. An early application of these products would be vastly improved high voltage batteries with at least 10,000 times the power of conventional batteries, charged and recharged with low-cost electricity. This could help usher in the age of the electric automobile.

One new class of hydrogen polymers generated using the BlackLight Process has been shown to be conductive and ferromagnetic. Plastics capable of conducting electricity would have far reaching implications in electronic packaging and magnetic storage media. Compounds capable of having the flexibility, durability and lightweight properties of plastic but the strength and conductivity of metal would change how vehicles and aircraft are manufactured, producing lighter weight, more cost effective and more energy efficient modes of transportation.

Mills and his colleagues from BLP are presenting four papers today at the conference discussing the synthesis and characterization of this unique new class of hydride compounds, and the experimental data proving their existence. Two of the papers have been accepted for peer-reviewed publication, one in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, published by the International Hydrogen Energy Association, and the other in Fusion Technology, published by the American Nuclear Society.

Mills’ work is based on his "Grand Unified Atomic Theory," published in 1995, stating hydrogen can exist in states lower than the ground state recognized by classical quantum physics. Mills’ theory challenges long-held principles of quantum mechanics, but Mills has the data, products, evidence and confirmation from outside labs that his breakthrough theory is in fact correct. "I have kept the nature of this work confidential until now becauseI wanted to ensure we had the proper supporting data and corroboration by other researchers, such as Dr. Conrads, so my theory and its implications would receive serious consideration," said Mills. This controversial theory has potential applications reaching far beyond new hydrogen compounds.

BlackLight Power and Mills are now attracting widespread attention both within the scientific community and among serious investors. BlackLight Power’s most recent private offering was quickly oversubscribed, and the company has signed an agreement with Morgan Stanley to serve as its investment bank. Along with the financial backing of several major utilities and manufacturing companies, BlackLight is capitalized at more than $20 million.

Mills is president and founder of BlackLight Power, and inventor of the BlackLight Process. He also has started several other companies, including Luminide Pharmaceutical. Mills graduated Harvard University Medical School with an M.D. in 1986, and did postgraduate work at MIT in physics and chemistry. Mills’ book, The Grand Unified Theory of Classical Quantum Mechanics, first published in 1995, details his theory which neatly stitches together quantum mechanics and relativity. "Most significantly, my theory and the research we’ve done gives rise to the possibility of an inexhaustible energy source," said Mills.

BlackLight Power is expanding rapidly, with a major 53,000 square-foot research and development facility slated to house more than 100 researchers and supporting staff located in Cranbury, N.J., near Princeton, N.J. Mills has been awarded patents by Australia and South Africa within the past year, and has several patents pending in the United States.

Dr. Randell Mills is Chief Executive Officer and Chief Researcher of BlackLight Power, a company dedicated to discovering and developing new hydrogen compounds that are a by-product of a practically inexhaustible novel form of energy produced via the BlackLight Process. BlackLight Power is headquartered in Cranbury, N.J., near Princeton, N.J.
