    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    So, you decided to couple the E-Cat with a Stirling engine?

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Ken:
    I have decided that within one year I want an engine. We will test all the possibilities, also the Stirling engine and decide which one suits better the E-Cat QX.

    Good luck for you and your team of course.
    Please allow the follwing questions on the upcoming demo:
    1.) Will a third party participate?
    2.) Will You be able to convince the skeptics, as far as you believe today?
    3.) Will it in your opinion change the LENR recognition in the media?
    4.) Is Magnus Holm still on board?

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Willi:
    1- yes
    2- I am an industrialist, not a phylosopher
    3- I do not know
    4- Yes, of course, as well as all the great Team of Hydrofusion

    So you think to put the E-Cat QX in the place of the burner in a gas turbine?

  20. Andrea Rossi

  21. Sven-Erik

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Did you think about applying the Ecat QX to a gas turbine in place of the burner, or in combination with it?
    That could be a game changer in the transportation field.

  23. Alessandro Coppi

    Why do not start from the basis?
    a simple steam engine, even if with a very low efficiency could be the right first step forward the electric energy generation.
    Are available steam engines by 10 KW to 100 , on youtube it is simple find them.

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    We are evaluating all the possibilities. Steam engines can be a good solution for naval applications.

  25. Gennady

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The Brenmiller Energy http://www.bren-energy.com is not a power generation technology, but an energy storage solution. Working together with eCat may have interesting applications.

    One example comes to mind is to store some of the heat produced by eCat to run eCat, thus closing the loop or running multiple other eCats.

    But may be I am totally off base here.

    Regards,

    Gennady

    Dear Dr. Rossi, can you tell us which are the issues (in this period of your R&D) for reaching a good compatibility between QX and a Stirling motor?

    Thank you for your time to reply.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  28. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    The Stirling Engine theoretically would be a good partner, but we still have not been able to get the offer for a real product. There has been in the nineties a fantastic test made by NASA, but there has not been realized a real follow up. I am grateful to all our readers that have sent me many links related to this issue, but I still did not have a concrete response.

    Dear Andrea,

    I like Qnergy … 10 units = 54000 watts electrical output … modular … up to 100kw? 500kw? I called the phone number on the web site, (801) 752-0100, and a representative answered the phone. I asked him if he was able to deliver 10 units of product for prompt deployment, and he said he was able to deliver from stock. I told him I would have you call him back.

    https://www.qnergy.com/snowbasin-resort-partners-with-qnergy-to-install-the-smartgen-remote-power-unit/

    “Snowbasin, UT – February 3, 2017 – Snowbasin Resort is proud to partner with Qnergy on the installation of Qnergy’s first pilot installation of its Remote-Power unit, the “Smart Gen.” This independent, uninterruptible electrical-power-supply producing unit continuously produces and supplies electricity to the facility’s grid as well as provides emergency power, utilizing Snowbasin’s expanding natural gas infrastructure. The unit converts the energy in natural gas into electricity.

    The SmartGen provides two electrical outlets of 120V AC 45A power for independent continuously 24/7, 365 days a year. It also serves as a backup, off –grid power supply in case the site loses grid power during any harsh storm.

    “At a 6,000ft elevation and with weather conditions way below freezing temperatures, Snowbasin Resort is a perfect location for the pilot of our SmartGen remote-power unit. The SmartGen will be able to experience real world conditions that match the expectation of many industries that need to rely on remote-power applications,” commented Dan Nadav Qnergy’s VP Sales & Marketing. “We are thankful for the opportunity to test our unique solution and look forward to enhance our relationship with the local E&P community with more pilots in the next 6 months.”

    Could this be an ally for you to court?

    Might be too small for you but i think a number of boiler/furnace manufacturers make small commercial and even domestic combined heat and power (CHP) units. These run on gas and provide hot water for heating/bathing plus a small amount of electricity. The electricity is produced using a Sterling engine.

    Examples..
    Commercial scale
    https://www.viessmann.co.uk/en/commerce/combined-heat-and-power-generation/chp-unit.html

    Residential scale
    https://www.viessmann.co.uk/en/residential-buildings/combined-heat-and-power-generation.html

    I think Baxi also have a residential scale unit.

    I don’t have any contacts with these companies but it seems to me they would be idea partners and would be great to see one of their standard CHP boilers converted to LENR.

  44. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    To round out a potential contact list, there’s also the “JTEC” device. It doesn’t sound like the “JTEC” is ready for prime-time yet, but if it were it would be an amazing match for the E-Cat. (And it’s an interesting science concept all by itself.)

    To use their words: “The JTEC is a Thermo-Electrochemical Convertor that converts heat directly into electricity.” And: “The Johnson Thermo-Electrochemical Convertor (JTEC) is an all solid-state device that operates on the Ericsson cycle.”

    The inventor is Lonnie Johnson & he seems like a sharp guy (he’s also the inventor of the “Super Soaker” which is where he got his early seed money).

    Food for future consideration perhaps…

    The link has a TED video, and other descriptive information.: http://johnsonems.com/our-technology/

    Arvid:
    Thank you for the information,
    Warm Regards,

  51. BH

    Dear Andrea,

    I think Ripasso Energy would be a good Stirling engine provider.
    The last decade they have refined and adapted the Kockums engine to suit electricity production.
    The solar to power efficiency of their units is 32%. They also have a product that combines solar power with an alternative heat source for power production 24/7.

    Their factory is located in southern Sweden so there might be some synergies with your future production plans.

    https://ripassoenergy.com/en/

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Andrea,

    With regards to Stirling engines, I think Ripasso Energy has licensed the technology of Kockums (https://ripassoenergy.com/).

    As far as I remember, their application is solar energy in e.g. Sahara, with big parabolas concentrating the light towards the engines.

  54. Andrea Rossi

    Hello Andrea:

    Perhaps they only possess intellectual property on a good stirling, and wait for a person who owns intellectual property on an energy source to drink coffee together. Best that we do not have to pay a license to Jesus Christ to give someone forgiveness.

    Ownership is the cement of the current tower of babel. Currently, the biggest stones are at the top, so everything starts to collapse.

    We must serve, not win.

    Having said that, a thermal engine that works optimally with the Ecat QX needs to be designed. Something with needles with heated diamonds pushed into a supercritical CO2 chamber. Varied with ice-cold diamonds.

    As long as there is no Ecat Qx on the market, it does not make sense to develop such a motor.

    Within one year I want to see an engine operated by the E-Cat QX.

    Dear Andrea,
    to produce chips with ARM technology, as Qualcom does with foundry company, need fabs that costs some billion dollars each, so is very easy for them to knows who is doing what and how much.
    I think once the Ecat IP is public and everybody can buy one, thousand of small company around all the world will try to replicate and produce it and you will not have any control of the business.
    On my opinion your business model is the best one.
    Regards, Giuseppe

  71. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    Thank you for your insight,

  72. Samec

    TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor) is in reality producing famous Qualcomm chips, which are based on ARM license. For years I promote ARM business model for Dr.Rossi/Leonardo and fast E-Cat saturation of markets.

    There are some funny hypothesis, for example: Some folks thinks, that when media will be informed about E-Cat and demo one year later, that big energy companies will not going bankrupt 3-8 years later, which of course is false hope. If media will informed at November demo, these companies will also go to bankrupt within 3-8 years and if media will informed X years later, these companies again will go bankrupt 3-8 years later.

    THere is only one difference, if media will informed later, damages from unfinished abandoned projects will few hundreds billion USD higher. For example in our country is 70% state owned equivalent of Vattenfall – Czech powerplat company CEZ a.s., these heavily bought every piece of abandoned “assets” from others and CEZ management fanatically want build new blocks of nuclear powerplant (cost 300 billion CZK). As this management is not informed, they have information assymetry against Vattenfall and they continued in buying every another abandoned energy assets. As state owned company – this is heavy pain for ordinary citizens. So I really “love” here approach with as much late delayed media attention about E-Cat. For a few billion more private profit there will hundreds billion more public and private damages (costs).

    Thank you for the information, but the Qualcomm model worked differently.

  76. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Raoul and Kurt have made interesting suggestions for you to make a business model similar to Qualcomm, which has many patents and makes much of its income licensing them to other manufacturers.

    It would seem advantages in licensing patents would be that the E-Cat technology could be diffused more rapidly across many industries, and you would not be required to build massive manufacturing facilities, if other companies would be responsible for producing products licensed from you.

    Disadvantages might be you spend more time in court dealing with legal issues and challenges which could come.

    However, Qualcomm is not just a licensing company, it also has a manufacturing side, making chips and other electrical components.

    Which track do you think makes most sense in your case, or maybe both could work?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Good Day Andrea:

    I hope this finds you well and far a long the path towards the upcoming demonstration.

    With your revived interest in Stirling engines, an idea has floated . . . that you will present two distinct demonstrations of Rossi effect. The first is the basic irrefutable water calorimetric setup proving the essentials of the theory that LENR does have the capacity of a COP far greater than 1. The second would be with the ~50KW Stirling engine; a demonstration acting as a bridge from the theoretical proof of the 1st setup to an extremely practical demonstration of what the Rossi effect can do in an industrial setting.

    It is my hope that your plans reflect this idea . . . I believe you can see how it will effect the conclusions of those observing the demonstration. Strangely, I see it like the Lugano report’s ability to disarm the doubters. The two parts (energy input/output measurement and elemental/isotopic analysis) overwhelmed the possible scenarios of fakery.

    My best to you, your team, and your tennis instructor.

    Buck

  81. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    The demo of November will not be made by means of a Stirling Engine.
    The R&D for an application to engines ( not necessarily Stirling) has been due to other factors.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    In your reply to Rudy you said: “If any Stirling engine manufacturer has a 50 kW engine ready to be bought, this is the very right moment to contact me.”

    Having been following alternative power generation for more than a decade, your appeal reminded me of the FLEXGEN 43, a ready to go Stirling engine that is designed for an electrical power output ranging between 43 kW and 55 kW. Their website says:

    STIRLING BIOPOWER INC.
    PGL, FLAVEX has been authorized product distributor for the FLEXGEN 43 manufactured in Ann Arbor MI. this unique Stirling cycle grid power generator is capable to produce from 43 to 55 KW of prime power at 480Volt, 3 Phase, 60Hz, capable of using a wide variety of standard and non standard gaseous fuels as well as waste heat sources.

    With more than 30 years of research and development in the Stirling Engine field Stirling Biopower Inc. is pioneer in green power generators, for more information please visit:

    http://saabgroup.com/sv/media/stories-listings/2015-02/the-secret-to-the-worlds-most-silent-submarine/
    The engine is a closed system that uses heat from liquid oxygen and Diesel oil, so that it can run under water without need of combustion air.
    The manufacturer states that it can use any heat source, so it is a perfect match for the E-Cat QX, I suppose.

    Dr. Rossi,

    I have been following your progress since your public demonstration will Dr. Sergio Focardi. Your progress has been amazing to watch.

    You stated earlier: “Today we are making substantial improvements to raise the power of the apparatus that will be presented in the demonstration.”

    1. Is this increase in power due to adding more QX reactors to the demonstration setup or due to a changes to the QX and its control system?
    2. If due to increase in the quantity of reactors, do you have a ballpark figure for what you are shooting for on the output power?

    May God speed you in your endeavor!

    @Supporter of Focardi’s Legacy:
    I presume you are somewhat stumped as to why LENR’s are refuted by the mainstream establishment. And I guess that you believe that if the LENR process was kept to a simple Nickel/ Hydrogen reaction then this process would have more chance of being accepted as a viable method of replacing conventional methods of generating heat. The sad facts are that any technology that is revolutionary i.e. not an old technology that has been simply tweaked is very, very difficult to introduce to the general public by public broadcasting due to the continual backlash from the established mainstream powers that be. Any technology/process that is labeled destructive or ‘before its time’ can be looked upon as a ‘hot potato’ and for those who investigate or even acknowledge such such a scientific breakthrough risk upsetting their peers and jeopardizing their careers. LENR’s I believe falls into the category of a ‘hot potato’. There are many people who are aware of this problem regarding the introduction of any groundbreaking technology but unfortunately there are more people who are totally unaware due to there none involvement in such matters. Joe Bob if he worked for a government run research establishment would find himself out of work if he went against his peers, proved LENR’s and proceeded to inform the general public

    For reasons that are obvious and that I explained many times, I have no more information to disclose after what I already disclosed, on the base of which experts of the art have replicated the patented effect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  117. Supporter of Focardi's Legacy

    Dear Andrea,

    (Here is a question I hope you can answer. First, I must setup the scenario with “Joe Bob” representing any ordinary researcher in the field.)

    Joe Bob reads the earliest papers of Focardi’s early work with just nickel and hydrogen in which excess heat was repeatedly produced up to a COP of around 3. This interests him because it was performed repeatedly and accomplished with no LiAlH4 and no extra elements added. So not only was it a more primitive setup than the early E-Cats (capable of infinite COP and huge excess heat due to added elements) but compared to the super advanced Quark utilizing plasma was not much more than a camp fire stove, figuratively speaking.

    He goes on to learn that in those systems, excess heat depended on the quantity and rate of hydrogen absorption and desorption — into and out of the nickel. The more anomalously fast and/or large the absorption or desorption the more vigorous the “excited state” of the fuel would be. He realizes that due to all the money and intellectual property involved, no party successfully replicating more advanced LENR systems utilizing LiAlH4 as a source of atomic hydrogen, reverse spillover catalysts, radio frequency generators, or other enhancements will share enough information for meticulous and serious replicators to produce results every single time. Although there have been and will continue to be occasional huge successes proving the absolute, hard reality of the effect, nothing will be proven to the world. Simply put: until billions of dollars are already in someone’s bank account, the more advanced forms of the technology will not be capable of being *easily* replicated by just any scientist, due to proprietary know how being withheld. Fair enough, Joe Bob figures. Inventors deserve reward for their hard labor.

    However, Joe Bob wonders if any replicator out there would be willing to share details, in a more concise and easily digestible format, about how to get the “cave man style” (compared to any E-Cat ever demonstrated) original Focardi system to produce excess heat. A specific set of details of how to process nickel (even wire or bulk nickel) to absorb and then desorb hydrogen to become “excited” could awaken the entire world to reality of the basic reality of nickel-hydrogen LENR.

    Ridicule, mocking, taunting, veiled threats of various kinds: those that have supported the reality of Focardi’s early work and the reality of the Rossi Effect have been subjected to incredibly cruel treatment over the last year or so. We’ve been shouted down on various sites for daring to claim that nickel-hydrogen reactions were a reality. The relentless demonization of us came from both the naysayers who dismiss all LENR and those that sought to erase Ni-H LENR from history — pushing palladium deuterium reactions as seemingly part of their agenda.

    The information to make basic Ni-H systems (no extra elements from the periodic table, no lithium hydrides, no RFGs, no plasma, no electrical current running through the fuel, no special high surface area powder) produce excess heat could refute these attempts at destroying a dedicated scientist’s hard earned legacy and excite the world about the tremendously evolved version that could change the world.

    Is there anyway you could provide advice about how to get plain hydrogen into plain nickel (even bulk) to produce the heat Focardi saw in his early experiments before he ever met you? Not a word about elements, not a phrase about lithium, not a hint at electromagnetic stimulation, not a sentence about electrical discharges: only the physical prep of bulk nickel and application of ordinary hydrogen from a tank to allow the humble COPs Focardi witnessed.

    Thank you regardless if you can provide any info or not.

    Dear Andrea,

    In regards to MHD generators – brilliantlightpower talk about using either photovoltaic cells or magnetohydrodynamic generators to convert the heat / light from their proposed 500kw generator. If interested I suggest going to brilliantlight power.com, there is a PDF link to a powerpoint presentation under “Society for Cable & Telecoms… Conference” towards the bottom of the home page. It may give you some ideas to explore for your e-cats. Anyway, I wish you all the best Andrea! I know you are extremely busy. Personally I think you try to do too much of the work yourself and would benefit form a team of helpers. I sincerely wish you well.

  122. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your system architecture choice for large scale systems is an important consideration. For instance, suppose you wanted to power a 1 GW electrical generation unit (such units do exist). Assuming a Carnot efficiency of 40% means a thermal generation capacity of 2.5 GW. Assuming you select 250kW as the output of a “area” collection of reactors, roughly 12,500+ reactors would be needed for a 250kW module. These 10,000+ “area” modules would be running in parallel to produce the 2.5GW of thermal power to generate the 1GW of electrical power.

    Now the interesting part. With a one year reactor lifetime, this means the average number of “area” modules which will require replacement for refueling is about 27 units per day. Since the initial start-up condition will be all fresh reactors, this means you need to be able to replace up to 54 units per day — run 6 months without “area” module change out and then a uniform replacement during a 6 month “maintenance” period — still being capable of maximum electrical plant power generation. This means, ideally, a replacement time of an “area” module of about 30 minutes, performed 24 hours per day. Such “exhausted” modules would then be shipped to your maintenance facility for refueling and clean-up.

    If you grouped the 250kW “area” units into 10 unit collections, thus capable of producing 2.5MW of thermal power as a subsystem, then the number of subsystems would be 1,000+. Such a subsystem could be brought down for refueling maintenance for a period of 5 hours to replace all of the “area” modules. 1,000+ subsystems would give you a 0.1% control by turning on or off a subsystem for adjustment of the overall plant output. 5 hours is likely a reasonable time period to cool down the system, replace the components with refueled components, perform system testing, make any adjustments and restart the subsystem unit.

    I just saw that Georgia Tech researchers are experimenting with Ceramic pumps which can pump molten Tin at temperatures greater than 1400 Celsius (1673 Kelvin). Future developments in materials technology may produce parts with greater strength and that should be less brittle, have more wear resistance and, therefore, have longer operational lifetimes.

    Perhaps you may find a use for this type of pump.

    Thank you if you can answer

  137. Andrea Rossi

    Darrin:
    Obviously I know the results, I have been informed about them by the Professors under NDA, but I cannot talk of them before they will publish a report, if ever, since they worked with the funding of a third party that wanted to know if the Rossi Effect exists beyond any doubt.
    For this reason, they reproduced the reactor in the laboratories of the Uppsala University and followed the instructions contained in my patent. They wanted to avoid the complications generated by the infrared temperature measurement and measured the energy produced by simple calorimetry, by means of a heat exchanger and with liquid water.
    I know the measurements have been very conservative, always considering only the lower values of the margin of error of the instrumentation.
    I think I can say all this, because obvious.
    I cannot absolutely add any further information. I will be able to comment the results only after such results will have been made public.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Plasma has a temperature of at least 2,000 Celsius. During the demonstration you will make a calorimetric measurement of the energy, therefore the temperature that will be observed will not overcome 100 Celsius, if the water will not change phase. In the paper Gullstroem-Rossi you used a spectrometer to measure the temperature of plasma: will you use spectrometry also during the demonstration? It is important to be sure that the temperature is at least 2,000 Celsius, to be sure that there is plasma in the reactor, because if it is plasma it is obviously a good conductor of current.
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “the modularity allows a substitution per area”. Can you tell us:
    1. The (maximum) number of individual reactors in an “area” or the total thermal output per “area”?
    2. Within an “area”, is each reactor controlled individually by an “area” controller?
    3. Within an “area”, is each reactor monitored for health or performance?
    4. Within a deployed system, is there a theoretical limit to the number of “areas” that could be run in parallel (e.g. 2**16)?
    5. Within a deployed system, is each “area” controller monitored by the deployed system for individual reactor health?
    6. For a deployed system, can your company remotely monitor the deployed system for health and performance?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Can you say anything on why the limitation of one year? For example, in uranium-based fission, there are by-products that “poison” the basic reaction. You, obviously, could add more active components to your reactor during refueling if depletion were the only issue. Is control of the fueled reactor a function of the amount of fuel within the reactor? Please clarify what you can.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Assuming you have been running the 5-Sigma test for the last 3+ years, and you will be achieving your test result in about 1,200 days of operation…. A 5 sigma test means one (or less) failures in 3,500,000 cycles. There are approximately 103.8 million seconds in 1,200 days. A test cycle should be around 30 seconds.

    1. Does your test essentially consist of turning on a reactor, achieving a stable output, and then turning off the reactor over an approximately 30 second period?
    2. If this essentially captures the repeated test sequence, what length of time, over the operating period, was the output stable?

    Even if this envisioned test methodology is not correct, the achievement of 5 sigma is exceptionally challenging – having the reactor containment environment not fail at eCat reactor temperatures over this test period (~3 years) is amazing.

    1- no
    2- the “uninterrupted” operation has been subdivided in virtual segments

  185. The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!!

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    There is somebody that proposes Thorium recovered from radioactive wastes as a fuel useful to reduce the global warming.
    What is your opinion?
    Oppy

  188. Andrea Rossi

    Oppy:
    Thorium is a by-product of the Uranium decay. It is dangerous and, as all the actinoids, carcinogenic.
    To use Thorium as a fuel is very dangerous, let alone to consider it environmentally friendly.

    Good morning, Andrea!

    I hope that your work is going well. If the Quark you are testing does not fail by (A:October 27) will Sigma 5 be achieved? (B. If by November 27th?) (C. I just don’t know)

    We hold our breath in expectation and hope for your success.

    Il prof. Sergio Focardi era mio relatore alla tesi, e mi mostrò il suo laboratorio e i risultati dei suoi esperimenti.
    In seguito ci siamo rivisti per una conferenza a Bologna sul vostro lavoro, che ho sempre seguito con grandi speranze.
    Mi raccontò anche qualcosa sui vostri primi esperimenti.
    Qualcuno suggeriva di tenere il primo prototipo da 1MW per esporlo.
    Sarebbe anche bello avere i primi prototipi in assoluto, quelli che avete usato qui.
    Spero sempre di potere tra poco tempo scaldare la casa con l’ecat! Mi ero messo in lista appena uscì la lista.
    Perdonate se non traduco, ma ho poco tempo, dormo troppo poco, con la bimba piccola…
    Buon lavoro ancora, grazie per quello che fate!

    Prof sergio Focardi has been the one I made my PhD with in Physics and he had shown me your experiments. Since then I followed your work and also I made a pre-order for a domestic E-Cat, that I hope to be able to get sooner or later.
    It would have been great to conserve in Bologna your original prototypes…
    Thank you for your work,

    Dear Andrea,
    I did a little math and, if my calculations are correct (and hopefully She continues to perfom very well), sigma 5 target should be achieved by October 23, my birthday !
    This would be the best present I could receive !
    Good Luck,

  201. Jean Yves Metivier

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Your sigma 5 quest is interesting, but your answer to JPR is pointless.
    What is your final goal, is it related to how much cycles you do, how many days without failures, or how many Watts without interruptions?
    How far are you from the goal in percentage?
    The answers to these questions will give the Readers a feel of your progress.
    Keep it up!

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    You said that the 1 MW plant that worked for one year in the performance test in Doral, Florida, has been disassembled to analyze all the parts of it to study in the particulars all the problems emerged during one year of operation. Did you already obtain interesting data? Besides: will these data help also the E-Cat QX?
    Cheers
    M.

  210. Andrea Rossi

    Maggie:
    Yes, we collected more than 1,000 pages of data in all the particulars of all the components. Yes, the E-Cat QX has been born based on the same principles of the patent, therefore the data we are collecting are very precious. It is a mine of knowledge.

    Dear Anonymous,

    Will the report, when eventually published, include details on all processes and treatments of the nickel powder to allow for such a high COP? Hit and miss, finicky, challenging, enigmatic: making excess heat with nickel and a source of hydrogen (such as LiAlH4) is currently unrepeatable by the majority of replicators. Although a few highly credible respected scientists like Alexander Parkhomov and Songsheng Jiang have reported tremendous success (with rumors of positive results from other parties such as Nissan), there has yet to be an instructional guide published for serious parties interested in reproducing the effect to follow. Until such step by step details are provided, the series of successful replications that will be required for universal acceptance of the reality of the technology won’t happen.

    With enough time, effort, and determination, I’m confident any competent researcher can produce undeniable excess heat; unfortunately, individuals with the work ethic of Andrea Rossi are rarities. Most people want reasonably quick results and are unwilling to perform long series of tests. But to change the mindset of official science about the Rossi Effect, such a “cheat sheet” with the details of how to process the nickel powder, how to provide electromagnetic stimulation, and how to trigger the anomalous heat events will be needed.

    Sincerely,
    A Long Time Reader Of The JONP

  225. Andrea Rossi

    Reader:
    You addressed to “Anonymous” a comment that in fact would have been proper address to me.
    The answer is: your comment, in a nutshell, asks me if in the report I will give graciously for free our IP. The answer is, obviously, no. My patent, as you correctly say, has been replicated by experts of the art.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    According with a person with sure knowledge of the facts, the Swedish team of Professors has replicated the experiment of Lugano. They built a reactor copying your patent and made the measurements with regular calorimetry with water in liquid state, instead of with the Boltzmann equation used in Lugano. The same person, that wants not to be identified because the report is secret being financed by a private entity that owns it, told me that the COP they reached makes certain the Effect beyond any possible doubt.
    Are you aware of this fact?
