A world for the future
We believe in lifting all boats – in energy freedom and security – in economic, environmental and cultural sustainability – in harmonious co-existence – in social responsibility. We believe in the future and in the next generations.
We believe in pursuing new frontiers.
We believe in Innovative Zero Emissions Energy.
Saving the World
We’ve been joking about achieving this all our lives. Well let us confess……
Yes, we do want to eliminate World poverty.
Who is Gamikon
We’re a small group of private inventors, investors and idealists who have quietly spent nearly a decade designing and developing both a low energy nuclear reactor and a highly efficient heat engine, which together deliver abundant energy –
clean, renewable, sustainable, cheap, scaleable – for everyone.
We make more energy than is reasonable
Eight years of research and development, and we have:
A system that might just change, well, EVERYTHING.
Jacobs Thermal System
The core of the Gamikon intellectual property is the Jacobs Thermal System (JTS) which uses the “Jacobs Electro Thermolysis Cell” (JET Cell) to significantly reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. The JTS comprises an electro-thermolysis cell, a heat exchanger, pump and piping system, and a control system.
Research and development efforts have been focused on refining the system to stable and continuous operation, producing economically viable levels of extractable excess heat.
In short, the amount of energy it produces is more than the amount of energy required to sustain the process, thus resulting in a net gain.
Since this energy is released as heat, requiring loss-sustaining conversion to electricity, high gains are theoretically required before a financially viable system can be built with the aim of commercialisation. We have identified the preferred output range of the system for stable operation.
As an alternative to driving the system beyond currently satisfactory parameters, Gamikon has partnered with another Australian firm in development of a highly efficient heat engine to supplement the Jacobs Thermal System.
The JTS has been subjected to rigorous inspection, assessment and certification by both associated and independent parties. An international patent has been applied for and granted in a number of countries, although in many the patent is still undergoing assessment.
Gamikon is working towards the completion and trialling of commercial prototypes of the JTS. The Company has resolved to seek funding support to complete the development of a 100kW prototype, which depending on the level of funding is projected for completion within one to two years.

From Heat to Electricity
So our system produces extraordinary volumes of heat from relatively minor input.
Now to turn that into electricity….very, very efficiently….
ThOR Cycle Heat Engine
The ThOR Cycle Heat Engine is a high efficient steam engine. Depending on specific design aspects, it will have an efficiency of between 50% and 84%. ThOR stands for Thermally Optimised Recovery.
To place it in perspective, coal fired power plants operate on the modified Rankine thermodynamic cycle. The efficiency is dictated by the parameters of this thermodynamic cycle. The overall coal plant efficiency ranges from 32 % to 42 %. This is mainly dictated by the Superheat and Reheat steam temperatures and Superheat pressures. Most of the large power plants operate at steam pressures of 170 bar and 570 °C Superheat, and 570 ° C reheat temperatures. The efficiencies of these plants range from 35 % to 38 %. Super critical power plants operating at 220 bar and 600/600 °C can achieve efficiencies of 42 %. Ultra super critical pressure power plants at 300 bar and 600/600 °C can achieve efficiencies in the range of 45% to 48 % efficiency. These systems are extremely dangerous due to the high steam pressure and not feasible to build on small scale.
For current small waste heat recovery generators (around 100kW) operating under 300 Deg. C, system efficiencies are in the region of 12%. Many steam turbines are designed to condense the exhaust steam and thereby discard around 60% of the latent heat,
ThOR technology is based around a low pressure, low temperature reaction turbine. Due to the low operating pressure, the system recovers most of the exhaust heat from the turbine by recompressing the exhaust steam, resulting in very large efficiency gains compared to any other steam cycles. The ThOR cycle operates at around 4 Bar(a) compared to other large systems operating at above 170 Bar. It is not only more efficient, but also much, much safer.
Assuming we only achieve 50% efficiency (bottom end of the expected performance scale), and we fit the unit to a 100 kVA (100 kW) diesel generator (which has an efficiency of around 33%, needing to burn around 300kW of fuel to generate 100kW). The ThOR Cycle system will turn the 100 kVA Generator effectively into a 150 kVA one.
The ThOR Engine relies on known scientific and engineering knowledge and is therefore a predictable engineering process to complete commercial prototyping. Due to the extensive theoretical modelling now completed, this project is now considered very low risk, yet has an immediate and significant market.

But Children Are Dying Right Now
So in the meantime, we can save lives with simpler technology.
Bring on the AquaBlaze…..
Three essentials – One system
More than 1,400 children are dying every day from preventable water borne illnesses as a result of unclean drinking water. Natural disasters, wars and poverty result in vast numbers of people lacking access to safe drinking water. These are normally also the people having to burn biomass for cooking. AquaBlaze could alleviate the suffering of many while also reducing environmental impacts.
Water can be safely recycled using AquaBlaze, thus reducing stress on water sources. Due to its design, the cooking process by itself is more efficient than traditional ways thus reducing fuel requirements, while also providing the additional benefit of safe, potable water and hot water. This is achieved from the same energy input that normally would be required for the cooking process alone.
AquaBlaze was designed by Brenton Blue on behalf of Gamikon, and a provisional patent application has now been filed. The design is now completed, and the product is being formally released to market.
Please take a look at our video demonstrating the prototype version.
