    Steven N Karels:

    Even with the *astronomical cost of space launches, there seems to be enough energy in a kilo of H/D/Ni (or whatever) to perhaps make 3He a moot question?

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you, anyway interesting as an idea. Obviously I cannot give information, in positive, or in negative, regarding the materials I use or do not use in the reactor, even if projected in the future.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Helium-3 is readily available on the Moon’s regolith. It is also commercially available, albeit rather expensive. If you could obtain a sufficient quantity, you could test it. If it proves successful, you could then patent the process. That might serve you well but, of course, patents are limited in time and we do not know when a lunar colony will be viable. Use of lunar 3He would be much more economical than transporting hydrogen to the moon.

    There was conjecture that 3He might be the fusion fuel in the near future, be mined on the moon and transported to the Earth. If eCat is successful with nickel and ordinary hydrogen, there will be no need for lunar mining for Earth’s fuel needs.

    Honestly, I am not able to answer. Being an experimentalist, I will answer you when I will go to the moon, try it with a series of tests and I will satellite you the results, positive or negative as they might be.
    Warm Regards,

  6. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Looking to the future – do you think eCat technology could be employed on the Earth’s moon, but using 3He instead of 1H? Please let me know if the result could be positive or negative (LOL)

  9. While we wait for the independent report, here is an exclusive radio interview with Andrea Rossi. He discusses his feelings about music, and his experience playing the drums. This appears this week’s “Tom and Doug Show” which is broadcast on WOOL-FM, KHOI-FM and other stations on the Pacifica Network.

  11. Just a funny question (the rest is either positive or negative).

    Do you plan to build a tea kettle ? (even if it boils 10 tons of lyophilized tea)

    It seems that from old expert of Los Alamos I heard of, only a tea kettle can make them change their position.

    Scientific papers seems to have no value for most scientists. (experimental observation).

  12. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The analysis I presented was regarding what would happen if the world population increased to 10 billion AND the per capita energy consumption of everyone reached the current USA level. Other than solar or hydro, energy production uses the energy stored within the fuel (nuclear, coal, natural gas or eCat). Since eCat emits no greenhouse gases nor dangerous residuals as in nuclear power generation, eCat could replace most other fuel-based systems without adversely affecting the Earth.

    Dear Mr. Rossi, as there is very little info coming, could you confirm that you prefer British tea to American coffee.
    I hope that is not covered by a NDA.
    Ha.

    Too Much Heat?

    If the world switched to eCat technology for all of its energy needs, would the planet become too warm?

    Assumptions:

    1. ECat technology used to generate electricity for all forms of energy produced (heating, cars, electrical).
    2. World population of 10 billion (10,000,000,000) people
    3. All people consume at the USA per capita level.
    4. Effective conversion efficiency is 30% (Carnot of 45% plus COP of 6)
    5. If the total man-made energy release is less than 1% of the solar insolation, then no excessive heating should be observed

    Given:
    1. The total solar energy absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere, oceans and land masses is approximately 3,850,000 exajoules (EJ) per year or 3.85 * 10^^24 Joules
    2. USA per capita energy consumption per year = 300 GJ or 3 * 10^^11 J per year per person (USA)

    Computation:
    1.0 * 10^^10 people * 3 * 10^^9 J/(year – person) = 3 * 10^^19 J per year
    Accounting for a 30% efficiency means the amount of heat released per year is 1.0 * 10^^20 J

    Therefore, since the amount of energy released, (with everyone on the planet consuming as much energy as the average American), the net increase is less than 1% of 1% of the solar insolation and excess heating should not be a problem. This, without the release of greenhouse gases.

    Hi Andrea:

    I predict that, while the original design (your ‘Bologna model’) had many E-cat units set up ‘in parallel’, the design of the newest industrial model has multiple E-cat modules set up ‘in series’, with the coolant temperature rising step by step as it passes each unit.

    As an economist I enjoy predicting things. Of course my predictions are not always correct!

    Hi Andrea,
    As a mother of two little kids, I must reprimand you for constantly saying results will be positive or negative. It is like showing a kid a candy wrapper. When the kid gets interested, you say candy may or may not be in there. I believe you must be a grandfather. It is not very grandfatherly for you to be teasing your followers :-)

    Regards and Good Luck,
    Lata

  21. Andrea Rossi

    Lata:
    I am sorry for your feeling, but I am not playing with candies. For what concerns the Third Independent Party report, there is nothing I can do but waiting the publication, which does not depend on me and I cannot have more information. Regarding the 1 MW plant, we cannot give any specific information before we are allowed to publish the data of its operations. We cannot risk to give data that eventually could become substantially different. Imagine you have candies you do not know what are they made with and you have to say to your children “I cannot give you these candies until I am not sure they are positive for you”.
    Thank you for your kind attention,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Reading between lines, it seems to me that the 1MW plant 001 is an evolution from the bologna container, while the TIP report is about the hot-cat cylinder module.
    This could explain why the positive or negative results of the last has no direct relation with the results of the first…
    My idea is that the goal of the last is to study the “rossi effect” by itself, while the object of the first is the industrial application of the effect…
    To make an automotive metafora: can we say hot-cat is like a “formula 1″ car while 1MW plant is like a “rally” car?

  23. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Of course. As I said, photos and data will be published when the visits will be allowed.

    Angel Blume:
    We will publish, from now on, only results of plants in operation. The Third Independent Report will be the last report published regarding an experiment on the current E-Cat or Hot Cat, , at least until we will not introduce significant modifications. We cannot give any further information about our plants until the opening of visits to our industrial plant in operation. About the TIP Report: it is not “so long delayed”, it is running through the normal reviewing period of any important scientific publication. There is no doubt that the results will be important, positive or negative as they might be.

    He,he,he…good question. As a matter of fact these are two separated issues. Both are under exam.
    Theoretically, if one goes well there is no reason why the other go bad, and viceversa. Both results will arrive after a long term run, so both results will be reliable, positive or negative as they might be.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    If the third party test comes out negative, what are the chances that the one MW plant that you are so busy building will work?

  43. Curiosone

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The 1 MW plant that you are making now is still a remake of the one we saw in the 2012 test of Bologna?
    Thank you,

  44. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone:
    I can say this: the 1 MW plant we are working upon has been manufactured in the USA, in the factory of Industrial Heat. It is substantially different from the one we made the test of in Bologna, because during these 2 years I did not sleep too much and because I am working with a top class Team.

    Andrea Rossi,

    Today, I received a paper from Drs. Fred Mayer and John Reitz which discusses Compton Composite Particles (i.e. Tresinos) in the early Universe. The message below is self-explanatory, but I am saddened that one of papers’ co-authors is no longer with us. The paper discusses their cosmological theories and the topic of dark matter. This subject may be of interest to astrophysicists, but may also be of interest to many others.

    Composite Regards,

    Dear Colleagues,
    It is my pleasure to forward our new (open source) paper “Compton Composites Late in the Early Universe” to you. Unfortunately, it is also a sad moment because my mentor, colleague, and co-author, John Reitz, passed away just a few days before our paper was to appear.

  57. Curiosone

    Sorry, another question I forgot to ask for an answer: is it true that in the CERN accelerator protons speed makes them become smaller?
    Again, thank you,
    W.G.

  58. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone,
    Here are the answers to both comments of yours.
    Protons and neutrons are both made by 3 quarks; a proton is made by 2 UP quarks, each with an electric charge of +2/3 and a DOWN quark, with a charge of -1/3, so that the resulting charge is +1;
    neutrons are made by 2 DOWN and 1 UP, so that the resulting charge is 0.
    These quarks that make up the protons and the neutrons are called the “valence quarks”. The valence quarks are sorrounded by means of virtual particles, which are gluons, quark-antiquark pairs, so that the rest mass of protons and neutrons is much higher than the bare sum of the rest mass of the valence quarks. While the virtual particles around the valence quarks are in permanent revolution to make glad my friend Orsobubu, the number of the valence quarks remains fixed, so that if you add the total # of quark inside a proton, UP are always 2 more than the antiUP while likewise the # of DOWN is always 1 more than antiDOWN; in neutrons, DOWN are always 2 more than antiDOWN, UP are always 1 more than antiUP.
    Richard Feynmann named all these particles PARTONS.
    When protons ride around the Large Hadron Collider of CERN they reach a speed very close to the speed of the light; this fact, along the laws of the Relativity, make them become thinner: imagine a ball that becomes a subtle disk.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  59. Curiosone

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Another question of Physics, if you have time: of what are made protons and neutrons? I know, they are made by quarks, but can you explain some more ?
    Thank you for your patience,
    W.G.

    Daniel De Caluwè:
    If a LENR system works, it does not need public funding. If anything that works well needs funding, money arrives from investors. Think to Microsoft, Apple, etc. There are things that need public funding because they are important but do not produce profit, or the perspective of profits are too much distant in time to make them appealing for capital investments; in those cases is necessary that governments make funding: for example CERN, the conquer of Space, things like these. But it is not the case of LENR.
    This is my opinion, obviously it can be wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  61. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear dr. Rossi,

    Regarding the discussion about public or private funding of LENR, I can image that, in your case, you got a lot of dishonnest competition from wannebee competitors that are payed by taxpayer money (public funding), or by people who don’t play it very honestly, and was that the reason why, in your answer to Lande (who gave examples of the necessity of public funding in other fields), you wrote that LENR is a totally different thing.

    But why? I personally strongly believe that we, the people of the world (and we’re already with 7 billion on this globe, and we will be with 10 billion in 2050 or so), need very much LENR, because, (although there still are sceptics, especially in the United States), I studied very deeply the present climate change, and I know there is a problem (mainly caused by human activities), and also I know our nuclear power industry and its plants very well, and I know we need a better solution. So, as the present technologies are not good enough and could bring us in danger on the longer term (as well fossil fuels as present nuclear industry), do you agree that there should be (and probably will be an increasing) intrest and even demand from the public, maybe already in the near future? I personally think this will legitimate public funding, for the simple reason that the world needs it.

    Kind Regards,

  62. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,

    If the scientists performing the third party report figure out how the E-Cat works on their own – perhaps confirming by replicating the E-Cat – would you allow them to publish the details?

  64. Lande

    Dear mr Rossi,

    regarding your statement
    “I am totally contrary to public funding of LENR. It is a high risk field, that must be funded by enterpreneurs, not by taxpayers. Taxpayers must not be exposed to industrial risks.”

    I believe we have many industrial fields that started with public scientific research funding and which later was beneficial for humand kind. Like the Space and Moon race in the 1950′s and 60′s. Or the public funded research of Nuclear power for peaceful use, which have given us the Nuclear Power industry. So I don’t think it’s necessary a bad thing for the Public to fund high risk ventures, when the possible reward for the society are very high.

    And I may add that Public actually are exposed to industrial risks every day from the present Nuclear power plants, which have only limited liability against major Nuclear accidents….

    regards
    Lande

    >I am totally contrary to public funding of LENR. It is a high risk field, that must be funded by enterpreneurs, not by taxpayers. Taxpayers must not be exposed to industrial risks

    Perhaps you could agree at least about public funding of basic, fundamental research; this is widespread policy also in United States. This way, the capitalistic state can boost the national competitivity in global markets, employ and specialize large masses of workers and at the same time replace the capitalists when they cannot risk big capitals in long term programs. Then, when there are some results, capitalists can take advantage of this generous public help, exploit the discoveries and bring them to market and make the bucks. Obviously, I’m not a keynesian, so I don’t agree either, but this is a common political economy that gave impressive results in the past. Mr Guerrini asks you to turn keynesian, but I know that we’re for the revolution and will resist the temptation.

    About Ikegami-Petterson system and Brian Ahern System: do you think they use different technologies from your e-cat but share the same phisical effect or we are admiring an incredible series of new phisical discoveries?

    Dear Wlad,
    I am looking forward to the publication of your latest ansazt concerning the interaction of energy-matter.

    REPLY:
    Dear eernie1, the latest comment of mine concerning the interaction matter-energy is the item 11 of my paper AETHER STRUCTURE FOR UNIFICATION BETWEEN GRAVITY AND ELECTROMAGNETISM, submitted for publication two months ago to JoNP.
    I hope the paper will be published in Nov-2014

    2) ————————————
    I assume you are attempting to also explain the involvement of gravitational effects in your dissertation.

    REPLY:
    Yes

    3)—————————————-
    Do you present a different argument for the presence of only an attractive gravitational effect?

    REPLY:
    The paper proposes how strings formed by fluxes of gravitons, electricitons, and magnetons, are criated within the structures of the electron and proton, responsible for their electro-magnetic-gravitaty field

    4)——————————————–
    Also what have you decided for the speed of the effect? Is it instantaneous or does it propagate at the speed of light as determined by a Chinese experimenter who measured the speed by using tidal effects caused by the moons mass?

    REPLY:
    The speed of light

    I did not say “I made a strong investment in time, money and manpower trying to replicate all LENR processes of the competitors”: I wrote “WE ( etc)”. We have set up a team of specialists for this purpose, to learn exactly what our competition does. I am not involved in this work, because, as you correctly say, I have other priorities, but I Always read the results to keep me informed and updated.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    You have mentioned that you have made a strong investment in time, money and manpower in trying to replicate all LENR processes you can learn about from others through their available patent applications.

    Can you explain why this is such a priority for you when you have a huge job ahead of you in developing your own products?

    Many thanks,

    Dear Dott Rossi,
    if I should be in your clothes I’d not be worried,because in the market there is the true.
    When you give an E-CAT to a scientist,he wants know how it works,when you give it to an industrialist he wants to see a good performance that gives him a lot of money.
    So he is very happy and this is the greatest evidence that the E-CAT works well.
    I think this is a synthesis,because the E-CAT could “save the world” exploiting a human “fault”,but this is a personal thinking.

    Mark,
    for “a lot of people” I was talking about the “man of the street”, the people who ,3-4 years ago,did’n know anything about lenr or “cold fusion”,now I have noticed that a lot of them say “oh,now there is the cold fusion!”.They are the same persons who said to me “cold fusion? Ah,it doesn’t work..”
    This could be a cultural effect of another “Rossi’s effect”.
    It seems that they have lost their memory,and I enjoy myself saying “oh,is it true?!”.
    Everyone enjoy himself as he can. eh eh.

    Todd Burkett:
    We have made substantial investments to replicate ALL the experiments reported in patents and publications. I repeat : ALL. I am sure that, at least in some cases, we know those Technologies better than the inventors themselves. We are taking LENR of our potential competitors very seriously and I confrm what I answered to Giovanni Guerrini today.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    If you not only tested patented concepts but also know how, does that mean Ikegami’s proposal for a “lithium permeated grain metal” system – using not only nickel but also lithium and magnesium – may have validity or may work? The paper which details the concept can be found here.

    http://www.roxit.ax/CN.pdf

    The above paper also explains a theory of how transmutations of nickel into copper may not be the primary energy source. It actually goes into a lot of detail in what reactions may be taking place. I’m very curious to know if you consider the paper and proposal clownery, or something potentially real and worthy of being studied.

  91. Koen Vandewalle

    Andrea,
    Why would anyone in his right mind try to compete with you ?
    It is extremely pointless. A waste of time and effort.

    If your tech were open-sourced, then there would be some contest.
    If the music is the same, the dancers can compete.

    I’ve been watching “Le Concert”.
    I still wonder what role would suit me.
    Do you know what role suits you ?

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    @GG
    “People”? There are people still literally believe that the earth is only 6000 year-old. Depending on who you are talking to I suppose. “A lot”??? Where???. Other horses could be Mitsubishi heavy industries……end of the day from the consumers perspective, the more genuine competitors to the field the better.

  93. Todd Burkett

    Hello Andrea
    Did your replication efforts include Blacklight powers suncell tech?
    As Dr.Mills hydrino is not a LENR, but a possible competing energy source?

  94. Andrea Rossi

    Giovanni Guerrini:
    I agree with you, but I am very worried of the wannabe competitors that now are presenting clowneries, like did Defkalion: they are very dangerous, because their failures will spray dirt on our work, as well as defkalion did: our enemies are eager to find another defkocones to say that all LENR world is a clownerie. Therefore I want to say sound and clear: we have replicated all the existing patents and know hows regarding the LENR existing in the world and no one of them has manifested a real heat excess with the following exceptions: Ikegami-Petterson system and Brian Ahern System. These are the only two systems that actually gave us evidence of a heat excess. All the other systems that we have reproduced ( and we have reproduced, with huge investments, all of the systems that have been proposed in all the world in the last 20 years, with particular attention on the experiments made in the last 4 years, that have been analyzed with extreme endeavour) have not given any heat excess evidence. One of them had put in the market a “kit” that has turned out to be a joke. I have to say this to make well clear that any future failure coming from all the burlesque reactors persented recently have nothing to do with our work and has not any right to cite our work as a reference without our explicit permission.
    I hope this has been understood sound and clear, because I have been strongly disturbed form all the insults I had to sustain after the clownerie of the def… has been put in evidence, even if I had said from the beginning that def… was a clownerie. Much before Others have put it in evidence.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    I enjoy myself very much ! eh eh .

    It is all about “could be positive or negative” at this stage and I generously give 3 figures. If Andrea is all out on “positive” I will gladly add a few more zeros on.
    There are other horses in the market and Andrea , you don’t want to be too late!

    We are working under a tremendous pressure, but we are working well. Other horses? That’s what competition is!

    Andrea,

    Someone suggested that the first 1MW plant has a serial number of 001. Should you not reserve at least twelve digits for the serial number, like 000 000 000 001. If everyone in the world had an e-cat, nine digits won’t be enough. Long time ago, Bill Gates allegedly said, “who needs more than 640K of memory?”! You don’t want to make that kind of mistake.

    Regards and Good Luck,
