Clean energy with Deutelio
It is time that nuclear fusion approaches commercial viability. International research centers are focused on the Tokamak method, which could deliver only after 2050. The Polomac method promoted by Deutelio should produce energy within 2030. It is based on the poloidal magnetic confinement developed in the ’60 / ’70 and improved by modern technologies.
Theoretical feasibility was proven by several experts and professors, even in the field of plasma physics, who are eager to test the Polomac model through the construction of the prototype.
Public funds are not available at present, because academic institutions are concentrated to develop the Tokamak and they support only international laboratories working on this line. However, we are open to collaborations with universities and research institutions to speed up the exploitation of new clean energy. Deutelio would reach external skills and existing facilities, while providing further Polomac prototypes for parallel experiments and training students.
The road map
Deutelio wants first to build a small prototype of the Polomac for tuning and experimental validation with hydrogen, this will be a conventional non-nuclear test. Based on the results of the small prototype Deutelio will design the first nuclear reactor working with deuterium (the natural heavy isotope of hydrogen). This will be the base to build and sell small heat generators operating with Deuterium. Finally, we will develop and sell electrical generation plants with superconducting magnets.

Illustration of the
The Polomac model, as the Tokamak or Stellarator, cannot be patented. Patents can be claimed on important details (e.g., on the magnets) resulting from the design of the prototype and tests. Hence, startups take care off recording these features as they process.
The pictures below illustrate the vertical and horizontal section, as well as a radial view, of the prototype developed by Deutelio.
Typical vertical section of the Polomac prototype, the vessel is black, the coils orange and the support structure is blue. The ports reach the external legs, where the plasma is 3.6 cm thick. The internal plasma cylinder is 30 cm in diameter and 85 cm tall. The first wall panels cooled by water are not shown.
Radial view of the vessel ports in the tunnel on the left.
Vertical section across the tunnel in the centre and on the right.
The first is used only for ports, the second hosts the feeders of the dipole coils.
Horizontal cross section of the Polomac prototype, highlighting the central cylinder, two of four external legs with their four side coils, the mechanical structure consisting of a square base, four pillars aligned with the tunnels and holding the dipole, the rings nested in between the pillars. These rings along with the top and bottom frame (outlined above in the typical cross section) hold the external coils.
