Biochemical technique for transmutation of elements announced

Thu Jun 30, 2016 4:32 pm

A team of Russian scientists has just announced that they have developed an efficient technique of transmuting elements into neighboring elements (either left OR right on the periodic table) using bacteria to achieve the result. Two of the significant applications of this approach are the production and destruction of nuclear materials. There are many others.

Here is the press conference in Russian (with English translation):



The group's website can be found here: BT Isotopes.

Probably about as promising as LENR... not holding my breath.

Here's a paper concerning this topic: Transmutation of stable isotopes and deactivation of radioactive waste in growing biological systems
Abstract

The report presents the results of qualifying examinations of stable and radioactive isotopes transmutation processes in growing microbiological cultures. It is shown that transmutation of stable isotopes during the process of growth of microbiological cultures, at optimal conditions in microbiological associations, is 20 times more effective than the same transmutation process in the form of “one-line” (pure) microbiological cultures. In the work, the process of direct, controlled decontamination of highly active intermediate lifetime and long-lived reactor isotopes (reactor waste) through the process of growing microbiological associations has been studied. In the control experiment (flask with active water but without microbiological associations), the “usual” law of nuclear decay applies, and the life-time of Cs137 isotope was about 30 years.

The most rapidly increasing decay rate, which occurred with a lifetime tau = 310 days (involving an increase in rate, and decrease in lifetime by a factor of 35 times) was observed in the presence of Ca salt in closed flask with active water contained Cs137 solution and optimal microbiological association.

Highlights
- The phenomena of isotope transmutation in growing microbiological cultures were investigated.
- Transmutation in microbiological associations is 20 times more effective than in pure cultures.
- Transmutation of radioactive nuclei to stable isotopes in such associations was investigated.
- The most accelerated rate of Cs137 to stable Ba138 isotope transmutation was 310 days.
- “Microbiological deactivation” may be used for deactivation of Chernobyl and Fukushima areas.

There is a detailed historical survey paper on the topic of biological transmutations on pages 16 through 30 of this journal. It contains references to both both positive and negative experiments into this topic.

If they turn Hydrogen into Helium, would that be "cold fusion"?
I noticed you're still working with polymers.
