Rafael Ben

Chariman & CEO

World Power Production Energy Corporation (WPP), which owns and controls several important advanced energy technology patents, is led by President Mr. Rafael Ben with 30+ years experience in the sector and is an established guest speaker and lecturer at international Green Energy Summits.

Mr. Ben heads a team leadership engineers and experts in the waste to energy power generation with the latest modern technologies, well recognized on a global scale, having an extensive technical and business experience conducting business ventures across the globe.

In 1972 WPP President, Mr. Rafael Ben became concerned about the energy and fuel futures of the U.S. and began working on researching alternate fuel technology. He was the first person to use alcohol blends during this period and when he wrote “Methanol – A Clean Fuel for the 21st century”.

In 1986 WPP President, Mr. Ben worked various aspects of developmental technology for biomass and gasification.

In 1990 WPP President Mr. Ben, traveled to India for FAO in 1990 and evaluated conversion of agricultural wastes to fuels. In 1992 Mr. Ben traveled to China for the Rockefeller Foundation to evaluate two new gasifiers built there.

In 1996 WPP President Mr. Ben, travelled around the world, visiting various gasification sites, gathering information for the book “Survey of Biomass Gasification”.

In 1997 WPP President Mr. Ben, and his engineering team started the first prototype of a 1 Mega Watt per hour Biomass Plant in Chandpur near New Delhi the testing of the smallest unit that produces a 24MW power generation per day that could power a small village with great success.

In 1998 WPP President Mr. Ben’s team in conjunction with partner CPG, deployed the first power plant in a remote village in Ghana, West Africa, which was installed successfully and commissioned using Biomass. A new power source to 24,000 homes, avoiding the cost of underground cables with great success.

In 1999 WPP President Mr. Ben started the first testing device that converts water into Hydrogen via a small unit with Mr. Ben’s proprietary science developed in Belarus. The first model to extract water into Hydrogen and Oxygen with membrane electrodes by electrical pulse in a small chamber that generates fire at 2500 degree to heat boilers in a small scale, with the vision to convert large thermal power plants to reduce operating costs by 75% while increasing efficiency by 35% while running the entire power station at zero pollution, removing the chimney while saving huge amounts on oil and gas costs.

Since 2000 WPP President Mr. Ben and his team of engineers conducted ongoing research and development, partnering with world leaders in power generation sectors focussing on the world’s most advanced technology to reach the highest possible capacity of power production, and at the same time to reducing the cost of operations with the vision to run only clean energy sources to address the global warming issue and to bring to power producers around the world a viable solution to produce power in an environmentally friendly way, resulting in clean air for the benefit of generations to come.

In 2004 WPP President Mr. Ben became one of the world’s VIP speakers in green summits, speaking about the need to convert and upgrade power generation throughout the world to advance the use of new technologies as an alternative to the oil and gas sectors starting at Sydney Australia, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Macedonia, Crete, Greece, Saint Petersburg, and others.

From 2006-2008 WPP President Mr. Ben had power plants in Managua, Nicaragua for upgrading into Biomass plants. The conversion was to adopt new advanced Pyrolysis, combining Plasma Gasification with the Pyrolysis using tires and biomass combination to increase the amount of BTU’s converting the plants to run on a clean energy, with much higher profits on the sale of the Carbon Black, and Stainless Steel by products using the Kremsmuler exhaust system that eliminate the gases and fumes used as a second cycle, increasing power production by 18%.

2009 World Power Production Energy Corporation was formally formed (WPP Energy) to solve Municipal Solid Waste problems around the world using the advanced zero pollution technology, converting waste into power.

Dr. David J. Nagel

PhD, Chief Science Advisor

David J. Nagel received a BS degree in Engineering Science (Magna Cum Laude) from the University of Notre Dame (1960), and an MS degree in Physics (1969) and a PhD in Materials Engineering (1977), both from the University of Maryland at College Park.  During more than six decades of supporting, performing and leading Research and Development projects, Dave has had multiple successful careers:

Officer in the U.S. Navy. After graduating first in his Naval ROTC class at Notre Dame, he served four years on active duty, starting as Navigator on an Antarctic supply ship.  He then had 26 years of reserve service, including three tours as a Commanding Officer.  He retired in 1990 with the rank of Captain in the U. S. Naval Reserve.

Federal Research Scientist.  After his active duty, Dave joined the civilian staff of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) as an experimental physicist.  He measured the x-ray emissions from nuclear weapons at the Nevada Test Site, other multi-million degree terawatt plasmas, and energetic atomic collisions in which core energy levels formed transient molecular orbitals.  He co-invented and patented plasma x-ray lithography.  During those 20 years, Dave published in top journals, such as Physical Review Letters.

Federal Research Leader.  Still at the NRL, he served as a head of a materials physics group for 13 years.  He then became a member of the Senior Executive Service (ES-4), and was the leader of a nuclear and solid-state physics division for another 13 years.  As a Division Superintendent, Dave managed the global experimental and theoretical efforts of 150 government, contractor and other personnel, including 80 PhDs ($30M/year).  He was responsible for a cyclotron facility and two accelerators, an electron LINAC and a Tandem Van de Graaff ion system configured for Trace Element Accelerator Mass Spectrometry.  The division performed research and development on satellite, terrestrial and oceanic programs, on time scales from picoseconds to decades, temperature scales from a few degrees to multi-million degrees, and pressures from high vacuum to many atmospheres.  He led work on “cold fusion” (now Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, that is, LENR) from the start of the field in March of 1989.

University Teacher and Researcher.  For the last 22 years, Dave has been a Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of The George Washington University (GWU).  He taught courses on MEMS and NanoTechnology (2000-2006), mentored undergraduates on their senior projects (2007-2015), taught Physical Electronics (2015), and taught Sensors, Networks and Applications (2018-9).  Dave has mentored about one hundred undergraduate and graduate students on diverse topics.  His research now centers on LENR, especially spectroscopy of electrochemical LENR experiments.  He leads work in the GWU LENR Energy and Spectroscopy Laboratory.  Recently, he managed a team of senior GWU scientists, which developed advanced solar cells at the NRL.

Business Developer.  In 2011, Dave founded two companies.  The first, NUCAT Energy LLC, provides consulting, instruction and educational materials on LENR (nucat-energy.com).  The second is OptoBioSense LLC, a spin-off from the GWU.  It sought to develop inventions, which were made with a Computer Engineering PhD student, into a commercial point-of-care analyzer for uric acid in clinical samples.  In 2015, a successful businessman from Los Angeles and Dave formed LENRIA, an Industrial Association for LENR (lenria.org).  It provides information on LENR, and promotes interest in the field.  LENRIA has sponsored conferences and a multi-laboratory experiment.

Lecturer.  In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, Dave has given hundreds of technical presentations at conferences, in seminars and for senior management. He has presented over 100 talks on LENR in six countries on three continents to more than 4500 people.  Effective communication of technical topics to broad audiences is one of his major interests.

Writer.  During his careers, Dave has written or co-authored many refereed papers, conference proceedings, sponsor reports, book chapters, encyclopedia entries and magazine articles.  He has a few patents.  Dave has written extensively on LENR, both for the open literature and consulting reports.  He is writing a book on LENR science and business.

Traveler.  For business and personal reasons, Dave has been in over fifty countries on all continents.  He has had four round-the-world trips, one on a Navy ship (westbound in 1962) and three in the air: eastbound to Japan (1978), eastbound to Russia and Japan (1992), and westbound to Malaysia and Singapore (2008).

Malaysian Addendum: Research Professor David J. Nagel, Visits to Malaysia in the Years 2004 through 2011.

After working for the U. S. Navy for 38 years, I became a Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of The George Washington University in 1998. My initial specialty was MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS). A student from Malaysia, Faisal Mohd Yasin, asked me to help him with some measurements of a MEMS accelerometer. That work resulted in a publication. When he completed his M. S. degrees, Faisal returned to Malaysia to become a Ph. D. student at the MultiMedia University (MMU). I was appointed as his adviser, which required that I visit MMU annually. Given those yearly visits, I was also asked to serve as an External Examiner for the M. Eng. in Microelectronics Program. In that role, I interviewed Faculty and Students both on the main campus in Cyberjaya and also at the satellite campus in Penang, reviewed examinations, and provided reports on what I learned.

During those years, I interacted repeatedly with the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics in the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), headed by Prof. Dato’ Dr. Burhanuddin Yeop Majlis. I mentored one of his Ph. D. students, Fatima Lina Ayatollahi. I also visited the campuses of University Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).

While in Malaysia, I gave lectures on MEMS at MMU and UKM, and on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) at the Malaysian Institute for Nuclear Technology Research (MINT). I participated in a MEMS conference in Johor Bahru in 2008 and the 2nd International Conference on Energy and Environment in Malacca in 2009.

My recollections of the eight trips to Malaysia are very pleasant. I met many capable and interesting people at the excellent universities and elsewhere, and enjoyed the pleasant weather and good food.

Jodie Jacobson

Regional Director Australia

As an experienced manager Jodie brings to the team a wealth of knowledge, integrity, and strategic proficiency. With significant and varied roles in multiple industries including telecommunications, real estate and renewable energy Jodie understands the complexities of managing several stakeholders, including government, whilst achieving planned outcomes.

Jodie’s determination and ability to recognise opportunities and strategic alliances, combined with her excellent negotiation skills, ensures she exceeds expectations and creates mutually beneficial and long-term partnerships.

Whilst recognising and understanding the environmental challenges we face globally Jodie is excited that not only do we have technologies that can and will make a significant positive difference now and into the future, but, for the first time there is no longer a debate on environment versus economics as economically the opportunities are impressive independent of the significant environmental advantages.

Australia, with its internationally recognised high standards and integrity combined with its strategic location, vast geography, and varied climates creates an ideal synergy both technologically and philosophically. Jodie is prepared and ready for the challenges ahead and looks forward to realising the shared objectives.
