|Per MW plant output, minimum size 20.0 liters|
The process uses water with an high dose of deuterium (a heavy isotope of hydrogen) as a fuel supply. The deuterium is extracted via electrolysis and fused producing tritium (a triple-heavy form of hydrogen appearing only as a byproduct of nuclear reactions) and eventually helium-4 (a byproduct of deuterium-tritium fusion).
The Fusion+ is an efficient (producing very little waste heat) energy output through catalyzed fusion of hydrogen. Cold fusion is distinguished from Fusion by its small size: Fusion is suitable for large multi-kiloton installations; Fusion Plus is a small, relatively portable installation suitable for vehicles and homes.
The units are small, sealed, self-contained cold fusion power sources. Virtually maintenance free, they are sited throughout many ships and installations as independent power sources. Powered by water, they are inspected and cleaned annually, at which time their small water tank is refilled.
Larger Fusion+ plants are composed of a number of smaller, independent cells.
These power plants, once perfected, almost always transform earlier societies into interstellar ones.
