Company expects to bring cold fusion technology to market as early as Summer, 2007 first in the form of some kind of home heater technology, then with electrical generators for homes. Scientific evidence for supporting this company's claims appears weak, and numerous representations by its founder appear to be highly questionable. (See report by cold fusion expert Steven Krivit in New Energy Times May 10, 2006 article.)
Note: As of January, 2008, the D2Fusion site has been down and the project appears to have fizzled. (

Russ George's D2Fusion Disappears Planktos Runs Aground - The D2Fusion site has been down since Mid-January and the Planktos site has posted a notice of cessation of that project. Previous coverage included de-listing of its stock, allegations of fraud, and the halting of the ocean fertilization project as reported in The New York Times on Feb. 13.

Just before a Canadian Broadcast Corp special aired, talking about Russ George's questionable campaign to seed the oceans with dumping of small iron particles to restore the plankton, his unarmed research office was raided with overwhelming force.

D2Fusion looks like it is in storage mode - It was "sold" this summer (2007) to another dormant-looking company, Enwin Resources. Well actually, just like the earlier attempted sale of D2Fusion to "Shadow Marketing" - this is a provisional sale. Enwin Resources gets D2Fusion, if it can come up with $2 million.
Enwin Signs Agreement to Acquire D2Fusion - Operations are focused on the engineering and development of practical solid-state fusion thermal energy devices derived from work sometimes referred to as LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) or CANR (Chemically Assisted Nuclear Reactions).

On Sept. 18, 2007, a New Energy Congress member said:
Based upon the New Energy Times article and my
experience with various scientists in the CF arena,
Russ and D2 Fusion are slippery and should be handled
with great care. I suggest that D2 Fusion be rated low
on the Congress:Top 100 Technologies -- RD list because they are not doing ethical
business and could easily crash in one way or another
along their way. As usual, the inventor is his own
worst enemy. Worse than that, Russ is not even an
inventor, to the best of my knowledge. He's
hoodwinking people all along the way. Not good in my
estimation. I like Russ' enthusiasm, but honesty is an
essential piece of the puzzle. Like Abe Lincoln said,
a dishonest man can't keep his story straight forever.
Russ will crash don't join him.
On May 17, 2006, New Energy Congress Member, Congress:Member:Robert Indech, PE, wrote:
Numerous people have recognized the critical significance of
solving our nation's and the world's energy problems by use of a
controlled form of hydrogen fusion. As is known in elementary
nuclear physics, such fusion produces about a 4% mass to energy
conversion, compared to 0.01% for oil and its derivatives. It's a
different ball park.
Unfortunately, no one has managed to create a system for
controlled hydrogen microfusion, to extract this energy and use it
in a nondestructive and productive manner. That hydrogen fusion
exists has been conclusively proven in our exploding thermonuclear
bombs but these bombs will not provide usable power.
D2 Fusion has set up an excellent organization for research and
commercialization of a method to do hydrogen microfusion. The
problem is, quite simply, that they do not know how to do it. Their
technology is undisclosed and by reading into their website appears
to be centered about the Pons effect (i.e. see the "Infinite Energy"
website for more info). This effect, denoted LENR ("low energy
nuclear reactions") utilizes the shielding effects of the electrons
about the platinum and palladium atoms metallic matrix in the
electrodes to Coulombically shield two deuterium nuclie from each
other until they are close enough for the strong nuclear attraction
force to take over, producing fusion. As is noted in the LENR field
by numerous researchers, this effect is transient, not subject to
repeated verification, and many other researchers consider the
experimental results illusory. In fact, the Japanese, who funded
Pons and company for about 10 years have pulled out of such funding
as there would appear to be no commercial results at present.
This company does not gloss over these facts, and recognizes that
there may not be a return on investment for many years. That said,
however, I do not dismiss the possibility that such an effect could
occur, simply that these boys have been going about it the wrong
way. But, as in any well run company I'm sure that they will not
remain locked into nonproductive technology, but will use their
assembled talent and capital to try other more productive routes.
Thus, I do not ascribe this D2 Fusion to technical oblivion w/r to
our group, but rather to "not enough information at present".
For those forward thinkers in this field, try to imagine just
what kind of surface WOULD create sufficient electrostatic shielding
to allow deuterium fusion to occur, and given such parameters, how
would you construct the surface? It's an exercise in electrostatics,
nuclear engineering, and very modern materials science.
