Proof-of-Concept BiMBy Device. On-going effort to build a Proof-of-Concept BiMBy device to test, refine, and prove the mathematical model of the BiMBy device that BPC has developed. That mathematical model indicates that materials needed to build safe, effective, and long-lasting (50-100+ years?) BiMBy devices may be had at most mine sites. Success with this project will be a working Proof-of-Concept BiMBy device and experimental data collected from operating the device.
