    Hi, You probably saw how Bitcoin increased over 900 over the course of last year. It was wild – but not totally unprecedented if you’d been watching cryptocurrency over the last several years. And here’s the crazy thing; There are many other coins that still have tons of room to grow. You may have heard of Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, and others… …but there are more coins – and many more opportunities – Follow this link to get the full story. http://bit.ly/-cryptocurrency Best regards

    In economics terms the explanation is simple: The recent rise in crytocurrency values has occurred purely because demand for them has recently exceeded supply. When enough new crytocurrencies have emerged and the supply of them rises to exceed demand, their values will all fall to the incremental cost of producing more of them. Which is negligible. It might be under one dollar. I bet the inventor of BitCoin has already cashed in, and is sitting in his newly-acquired mansion on the IntraCoastal Waterway laughing.

    Buying them at these prices is participating in what in investment circles has long been known as “The Greater Fool Theory”. That refers to the situation when a belief arises that if you buy something at a totally silly price today, an even bigger fool will be happy to buy it from you, at an even more ridiculous price, later.

    Have fun.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, electric cars use battery energy not only for locomotion, but also to condition the temperature inside the car.
    In summer they have to cool off, and on cold days they have to heat the cockpit.
    All this reduces the battery charge.

    When in the future the E-Cat will also be certified for private use, it could be installed on all electric cars (an immense global market).
    The heat generated by E-Cat could in fact be used to heat the car and, in summer, it will be able to power an air conditioner to cool the car.

    Moreover, if the E-Cat could also generate electricity, it could supply the car battery, considerably increasing its charge and autonomy.

    Is this hypothesis a dream or do you think it could happen in the future?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  8. Jerry

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think that the “Dark Matter” exists?

  9. Andrea Rossi

    Jerry:
    There are theoretical issues that make its existence probable, but we do not yet have a proof of its existence. It is a pity that the project of NASA to launch an observatory in the space specifically focused on the search of the DM has been now put on hold for financial issues, but…as they say, a project is not serious until its financing is put on hold.

  10. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    Those who propose desalination by distillation using the E-cat either do not consider or are not aware of the mineral scaling issues of the boiler vessel. Maintaining and descaling these vessels is an ongoing labor intensive process without which they become inefficient and soon fail. Scaling of reverse osmosis membranes is much cheaper and manageable.

    The cost of water by R.O. in the latest plants has dropped to less then 50 cents to produce 1 cubic meter of potable water or 264 gallons. That’s less then 0.0018 per gallon. This is still about double traditional potable water, but they continue to improve the process.

    They are also working on extraction of minerals from the R.O. rejected brine. It was estimated that the market value of just Na, Ca, Mg, and K, if successfully extracted from the rejected brine of a desalination plant in Saudi Arabia, would be approximately $US18 billion per year.

    Note R.O. is still energy intensive for operating equipment such as the pumps etc… Should E-cat technology provide cheap electricity, the cost would decline further.

    Dan C,:
    Very interesting. Thank you for your explication. As I thought, reverse osmosis is very competitive.

  12. Steven N. Karels

    Raffaele Bongo,

    One of the disadvantages of using an oscilloscope for voltage measurements is the display of higher voltages is limited by the screen. For example, if I have 10 vertical divisions on an oscilloscope and the zero voltage setting is in the middle, and the scale factor is 1V per vertical division, then the maximum voltage I can display is 5 Volts. The plasma could be formed by a very short pulse with very high voltage and the oscilloscope would only show a vary narrow vertical line to +5 Volts. I do not know this for a fact as the information is confidential to Andrea Rossi. But this could address your question.

  13. Tristan

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    Did you already reached an agreement with a strong financial partner?

  16. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello Mr. Rossi

    At the November 24 presentation the observed voltage was less than one volt and the intensity also lower than the ampere.

    Can you explain how plasma is obtained with such low value?

    All my support for your work and forgiveness if this information is confidential.

    Raffaele

  17. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    No, this is a confidential information. No reason to ask for forgiveness: curiosity is allowed, confidentiality is demanded, both are legitimate.

    Dr Rossi,
    In the 6 minutes summary of the Stockholm video at last I found the core of the Gullstrom-Rossi theory: much easier to understand in the summary than in the full video.

  20. Eric Ashworth

    Rodney Nicholson, Very interesting information with regards the dynamics of the system/systems and the two opposing camps. The expansion theory I am doubtful of but the existence of the two camps I am well aware of by experience and I agree the study has nothing to offer for the possible existence of dark matter. For me one camp prefers theory alone whereas the other camp prefers theory with demonstrable principles Regards Eric Ashworth

  21. Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

    Dear Andrea!

    I wrote an article in the Russian magazine “Atomic Strategy” and on the website “ProATom”, in which I cited an analogy with the development of your invention with the work of the Wright brothers in creating an airplane. The magazine should be out soon, but for now I am sending you a link to the article. I can say with confidence that the attitude towards your great work has begun to change in the direction of trust and recognition.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you use a magnetic field to protect the materials of the reactor from the high temperatures reached by the QX?
    Thank you if you can answer,

  24. Andrea Rossi

    John Scott:
    I cannot answer in positive or in negative to this question, but it is true that around the plasma a magnetic field is generated

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The forum http://www.galileoprincipia.org/no-universe-expansion.php has received a number of posts suggesting that the Dark Matter is fake science.
    Maybe this can be of interest for the readers of this blog.
    R.M. Santilli
    = = = = = = = = =

    My understanding is that a team at Oxford University started a project a couple of years ago to measure the red shifts of distant galaxies ten years apart. If the universe’s expansion is truly accelerating – as proposed by those postulating the existence of dark energy – then the equipment being used should be sensitive enough to detect the change in red shift ten years later. But I don’t think this study will have any relevance for dark matter.

    To All:
    By googling ”reverse osmosis water temperature” I came across this link: https://www.aquaticlife.com/blog/how-temperature-affects-ro-water-production-/
    Here, the author clearly makes a connection between the efficiency in smaller plants, and water temperature (up to 100F).
    If correct, Your product would definately be of interest to owners of R-O plants.
    Since there are a number of bright inventors/entrepreneurs out there, I’m sure they’ll take notice once your product is introduced.

  33. Greg Leonard

    Italo R,
    The current energy industry would love AR to make all his IP available. The result would be the fragmentation and delay in developments – Big Oil would continue to make its millions for years to come.
    The parallels with Elon Musk are not valid, as electric cars are so much more expensive to make – the real drive there is to develop common standards to which all manufacturers can work towards.
    AR’s proposal of massive production at a price which makes copycat development not worthwhile,is the way most likely to get the results we all want at the earliest date.
    regards
    GL

  34. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    I totally agree with you.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  35. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, did you read Elon Musk’s biography book?
    He is an exceptional and admirable man.
    Among the various things that have struck me is his desire to do good to humanity.
    Here on Earth with electric cars, and in space to make the man multiplanetary aspiring to colonize Mars.
    He managed with Tesla to compete with all the automakers who are now trying to do the same things but without the same success, since they are about 8 years away, especially in the production of electric batteries.
    However, Musk decided to make Tesla patents open source. He did it because he wants electric cars spreading more and more, even if they are manufactured by others.
    And this is admirable. He did not want to think only about his personal gain, but he really wants to do good to humanity.
    And even so doing, he is still getting great riches and honors, and his name will be anyway written on the History books.

    I was thinking about your E-Cat. Have you ever thought that if the E-Cat were open source there could be a faster development and an easier diffusion in the world, so starting to alleviate so much suffering in humans?

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    If I put my IP in open source my technology will lose all the financing partners present and future. Nobody invests seriously in techs without IP in our sector.
    I cannot speak for the choices related to situations that I do not know.

  38. Andrea Rossi

    John Hawthorne:
    As I said before, I am not an expert of water depuration or desalination. The key question is: how much costs per liter the desalination of water with the existing widely employed technologies, like for example reverse osmosis?
    Knowing this, I could answer properly.

  42. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Follow up to my previous information.

    Mass Defect = Economy Force = force of an organized system). The mechanism as previously explained has an internal flow that I referred to as an ‘economy flow’ that I now realize is due to a mass defect. The mechanism organizes a system of flow unlike anatomic/sub atomic physics whereby potentials of energy are organized into systems of force. This phenomena, regarding force potentials, I believe is within every system whether micro or macro. The E-Cat being an artificial system cannot produce hydrogen but is able to reduce it to its base components. However when within the micro world of the macro state the phenomena of fusion is induced in a contained environment/planet unlike when in the macro state, that which has been fused is introduced/neutralized with a reaction opposite to that of fusion being fission and thereby producing neutrals with a release of a quantity of energy.

    The following requires a novel understanding that applies to many situations notably the LENR process but, why, the resistance it seems to incur?. Also the mechanism is subjected to the same resistance.

    Quarks I consider to be the building blocks of all matter. Neutrinos and the Higgs are integral to the quark but should not be considered vital at this stage of intro understanding. Lets assume that free quarks, unbound in matter, have a very weak gravity value, are a neutral unit of x6 component parts and that fill all empty space in our solar macro system. The system being systemic of nature could be referred to as a ‘time capsule’ when related to distance as a value of time i.e. distance between the integral parts/planets. Earth is an integral part of a system in a state of evolution thereby an integral part of the capsule and if so, I believe, we are not alone, if not, then fission and fusion are processes that can be understood as energy cycles of an interacting system whether it be micro or macro. Both a micro and a macro interaction involving mass defect are required to maintain a neutral/gap between all structures. A fission state can be artificially induced because this state is within nature of which we area part. The fusion state is not possible as it requires the internal pressures of a planet. It is the natural state of the process with regards recycling in the macro system that is important to being able to project the process into the micro so as to understand a concept whether it be artificially induced or of a natural phenomena. Thereby the LENR conundrum may be able to be explained as an artificially induced recycling natural process with regards quarks into hydrogen and hydrogen into quarks (LENRs being a part of the natural reaction omitting the fusion process).

    This will require a degree of consideration: Quarks as mentioned are neutrals that contain a degree of gravity because they have a composite vital structure. Thereby there is no empty space except at zero points within structure. If there is no exterior empty space we must exist in a solid system of a low density structure that exhibits mass defect. Planets are solid bodies with there central point of zero gravity between two gates that supply the zero gravity with a constant supply quarks from each gate. When quarks compress they glow. Within a planet they are in a contained environment. Around the zero point under extreme pressure they form into hydrogen structures containing potentials as previously described (maybe I have overlooked this point, if so I shall deal with it) and undergo mass defect. Thereby x2 quarks within one section of 120 degrees of the hydrogen atom overlap to a degree gaining mass defect and so too does the other x2 120 degrees. The mass defect represents two potentials of two quarks that because of unequal potentials form a neutral with a degree of binding between two neutrinos (the unequal potentials are due to the inner quark having more size than the outer quark that’s more volume. The neutral represents a stable potential between two points of zero gravity within the two quarks. Any quarks that descend deeper within than the hydrogen quarks form neutrons that display a more intensive reaction, when unbound, due to containing more mass defect. Hydrogen formed within theEarth is formed by the zero point of gravity within the Earth. Any hydrogen formed within another planet within the same 120 degree section section as planet Earth but deeper within the ‘time capsule’ will be more positive due to its dimension differential and thereby produce hydrogen of a more positive potential from the quarks of the outer system. Thereby the interaction of these two planetary systems will produce a mass defect with regards there individual exterior potentials. The Earth because of its more negative position displays a majoring.minor neg exterior whereas the more positive planet will display a major neg/minor pos exterior. Thereby the mass defect of the interaction between two gravity masses/planets would be able to fission any hydrogen from planet Earth back into quarks but not the hydrogen from the more positive planet, its hydrogen would require the body/planet in front ie. deeper within and being more positive to provide its potential spas to fission its hydrogen into quarks.

    The E-Cat has its two potentials of empty vessel and stable cubic neutral. Hydrogen is introduced. Hydrogen is fused from paired quarks into a 120 degree segment, one segment at a time i.e. over a period of time. The empty vessel within the E-Cat strips of the outer Major neg/minor neg potential of the hydrogen. As the potential approaches the empty vessel it becomes Major neg/minor pos. its paired partner the Major pos/minor pos. follows its partner becoming Major pos/minor neg creating a potential of a neutral between two quarks. 240 degrees is not a stable neutral so a chain reaction occurs. The reaction is a controlled break down over a period of time in a sequence of events. Thereby a low energy recycling process.

    Because there is no such thing as empty space, because of quarks, the entire system/’time capsule’ can be considered as a solid displaying a minute degree of mass defect. If mass defect is a phenomena of compression then a vibration must be a neutral activity that involves both time and space. The positive is the compression force, the neutral is the product/mass defect and the negative force is the readjustment which being within a solid translates as a positive force of transmission i.e. a reflective force producing an identical mass defect at the target area. Thereby does light travel within a space over a distance in a period of time? Maybe it is a transfer of force within a solid object that impacts a receptor producing amass defect of equal force. Sonoluminescence could demonstrate the thereof mass defect with regards quark matter vibration and reflex force.

    With regards the E-Cat. The production of quarks creates a pressure from the readjustment of the mass defect of the hydrogen. When quarks readjust they impact the quarks in the surrounding material substance and create pressure. The pressure can be measured as a degree of heat. The reason why LENRs create no harmful energies is because the reactions occur on the sub atomic level in a low impact controlled process over a period of time. In the opposite way in which the hydrogen atom was formed. I believe the hydrogen atom needs an explanation with regards its manufacture of potentials within each 120 degrees. In the meantime I hope this information is useful, if only for consideration. Regards Eric Ashworth

    E-Cat there would be no need for the “sun” or the “storage” 😰
    POMPANO BEACH, FL, February 16, 2018, CYCLONE POWER TECHNOLOGIES
    INC., (OTCPK: CYPW) The heart of the Microgrid system is the new Mark 10 engine producing 1500 plus horsepower at 7′ X 7′ footprint. We are currently in
    discussions with a few OEM’s to manufacture and supply customers with
    the new systems. Our Microgrid system will allow customers to generate
    their own power from the sun. They can then store the heat for a
    longer period of time than is currently available in the marketplace
    through our new thermal storage unit. The stored heat is used in the
    Mark 10 engine to produce power to the generator which can then be
    used or sell it back to the grid using the latest technology
    available.

  52. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    Any machine induces risks related to its use. I remember the problems that occurred during the Apollo 13 mission. Nuclear power stations, which were very secure, unfortunately caused some dramas.
    Can you tell us what are the possible incidents and accidents related to normal use of a 1 MW E-Cat? breakdowns, malfunctions, fire, poisoning, etc.

    All my support for your work

    Raffaele

  53. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    The issue is very complex. We got the certification for the industrial applications, based on the respect of all the items listed in the manual of operation.
    To answer I’d have to enter in details that are reserved to the Customers. Obviously for the domestic units the problem is exponentially more difficult, because the apparatus has to be safe even if the Customer does not read the operation manuals: remember the case of the company that has been held liable, together with the certificator, because a Customer put a cat in the microwave oven sold by that company to dry the cat after a shampoo.

    Dr. Rossi,
    about the answer to Daniel G. Zavela Feb 16 at 8:43 P
    I don’t think you answered his question:
    What is holding up the certification of the home unit ?
    My answer is:
    When a device is ready to use in a home, this means that anyone that lives in a home can buy this device.
    This will include Joe SixPack.
    As a safety measure it must pass tests by UL.
    They have to make sure no matter what dumb thing
    Joe SixPack does, it will not harm him.
    Is this correct ?

  63. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Earlier you mentioned the reactor could run with a secondary temperature of 600C.

    Will the industrial reactor be rated for 600C or is that just a theoretical limit for the QX reactor in general?

    I think 600C equates to over 250 bar if water is used.

  64. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    It is a technological suggested limit.
    600 C can yield 55 Bars, that can give an efficiency of 35-40% by means of the Carnot cycle.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  65. Dear Dr. Rossi:

    I am puzzled about the delay in certifying home units.
    Previously you stated that the need for a skilled operator is why industrial units could only be certified now for sale. Recently you stated “interventions are not made during a normal operation of the Ecat QX, during which the Ecat is completely autonomous.”

    What is holding back certification of home units?
    I would like to see your venture successful on a grand scale.
    Wishing you continued good luck with your product work.

    Tank you for your kind support to the work of my Team.
    To vaporize 1 kg of water at room pressure you need about 0.7 kWh of energy.
    I am not an expert of water treatment, therefore I do not know if this is competitive. I have been told in past that desalination is performed with reverse osmosys, that appears to be more competitive.

    Dr. Rossi: Here is the latest from Cyclone Power, it still sounds like a fit with the current E-Cat. Forget the “sun” and “storage unit”.

    POMPANO BEACH, FL, February 16, 2018, CYCLONE POWER TECHNOLOGIES INC., (OTCPK: CYPW) The heart of the Microgrid system is the new Mark 10 engine producing 1500 plus horsepower at 7′ X 7′ footprint. We are currently in discussions with a few OEM’s to manufacture and supply customers with the new systems. Our Microgrid system will allow customers to generate their own power from the sun. They can then store the heat for a longer period of time than is currently available in the marketplace through our new thermal storage unit. The stored heat is used in the Mark 10 engine to produce power to the generator which can then be used or sell it back to the grid using the latest technology available.
    Cyclone is introducing a Pioneer program for the first Microgrid systems and generators. Please watch for the details and updates.

  75. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, During your earlier explanation of LENR theory both yourself and Prof. Focardi mentioned the interior of stars as a comparison and I believe you to be right. Having considered the reaction, if as I previously outlined with regards ratios of Na/Li andPd/Ni, there could be a correlation between your micro LENR process and the exterior macro reaction of our system. This explanation does require a degree of consideration as it is based upon a hypothesis with regards a new understanding of mass defect and if we consider the Earth to be a fusion reactor and the sun to be a fission reactor. It has been proven that oil is not from surface decay but is a manufactured product of an inner Earth reaction known as abiotic oil. Thereby if correct, the sun may not be making helium, it maybe breaking helium into hydrogen and then down to quarks. This hypothesis I will submit later.

    The cubic neutrals as described earlier i.e. Ni/Pd = 6.8 – but 280 divide by 6 = 46.666666 thereby 1/2charge cannot fill, thereby the Ni/Pd cubic neutral remains a constant empty vessel. The cubic neutral of Na/Li is a stable six.

    If as described: The micro system of the e-cat has a vessel that cannot be filled representing the sun and the stable neutral six representing the Earth. Same effect but different dynamics due to e-cat being micro using an existing manufactured substance, hydrogen and the other being the macro system that manufactures and recycles.

    The hydrogen has to be introduced allowing the Na/Pd cubic neutral to gravitate the major neg/minor neg from the hydrogen atom towards. This could transform the hydrogen potential into a major neg/minor pos putting it into a state of flux. Its positive partner is displaced becoming a major pos.minor neg and these two paired quarks set off a chain reaction creating plasma that involves the other x2 120 degrees. 240 degrees is not neutral.

    I use the phrase paired quarks because this I believe can answer a problematic area with regards mass defect and sonoluminescence. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your reply to Elliot about the max temperature you can reach on a secondary circuit, specifically, you replied that the max temperature is 600 C degrees on a “secondary circuit”.

    (Q) Does your prototype design include this “secondary circuit”?

    Perhaps you whispered a secret to us, and I would like to thank you for the bold statement above, I was somewhat concerned that the industrial prototype might be limited to a very low temperature as demonstrated in Sweden.

    I found some very interesting encouragement recently, in Romans 16:25-27, that I would like to share about the “sacred secret” that has been disclosed to those that have faith (including you!).
    I hope you enjoy this information. It warmed my heart.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Hello A. Rossi

    At the November 24th presentation, the E-Cat demo did not seem autonomous yet. It seemed to me that you were adjusting some parameters.
    Can you tell us if the E-cat 1MW will work in self-monitoring without supervision or human intervention outside the combustible change?

    Best regards

    Raffaele

  80. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    As a matter of fact, it was autonomus: I just had to stop it and restart it when we had to prepare it for the spectrometer or to substitute the Ecat with the dummies; the other intervention has been made when I opened an air intake window to change the air inside during the interruptions to keep it cool.
    These interventions are not made during a normal operation of the Ecat QX, during which the Ecat is completely autonomous.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Hi dott. Rossi,
    I want to inform you that there is a blog on Facebook in Italian language that every single day sustains your efforts in the LENR field. If any of your Italian readers wants information about LENR in Italian language, this is a group on Facebook called
    E-Cat del dott. Andrea Rossi (LENR)

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/235806719875659/

  82. Andrea Rossi

    Dario:
    Thank you for the link. Ing Michelangelo De Meo is an Italian high level engineer specialized in environmantal engineering.

    Did you see this blog?
    http://www.ecat-thenewfire.com
    There is also a conference you made in Italian from Sweden after the IVA event in Stockholm on Nov 24th.
    I like it.
    Ciao,

  91. Andrea Rossi

    Gus:
    Thank you for the link. Yes, I saw it, I would like to make that conference, organized by Dr Vessela Nikolova with Prof Vassallo of the University of Palermo and Prof Neri Accornero of the Univesrity La Sapienza of Rome, who participated to the Stockholm event.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is the technology of the Ecat QX an evolution of the technology of the classic Ecat of 2011, or it is a revolution after it?
    Ruby

  93. Andrea Rossi

    Ruby:
    The QX is strictly bound to the 2011 E-Cat. The know how related to it brings to the know how of the Ecat QX as a logic evolution.

    Dear Andrea,

    I am pleased to learn you are making progress. Would you say that your faster progress is due to:

    a) Having more people with relevant expertise to work on the issues at hand?
    b) Having more resources (funds and equipment) at your disposal?
    c) The prototype is completed, and now you are dealing with standard engineering?
    d) Having more experience with the E-Cat QX?
    e) Problems being less difficult to resolve nowadays?
    f) Having the support of a cooperative partner?

    Thank you very much,

    Dear Andrea,

    Four days ago you said you were 70% sure that you would start the commercialization of industrial E-Cat plants in 2018; today you say you are 80-90% sure. Can you explain why your confidence has increased?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  98. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I am progressing at an exponential speed in these days, because issues that needed months to be resolved a couple of months ago now need less time. I give you a model from Dan Brown: to pass from the discovery of fire to the invention of wheel has taken millions years, but to pass from the invention of the wheel to the invention of an internal combustion engine it has taken thousands of years, and so on.
    Obviously I can be wrong and find some unforeseen obstacle, by I am optimist: if you are not an optimist guy, you cannot be either an inventor or an enterpreneur, while I am both.

  112. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote: “we are working with assemblies and they act just as an aritmetic summatory.”

    1. Does this mean that when you combine individual E-Cat QX reactors together in an assembly, the heat from one or more individual E-Cat(s) does not interfere with the performance of others E-Cats in the same unit?

    2. When you have multiple E-Cat QXs operating inside one assembly, is the operation of the control system that drives them adversely affected (compared to when only one E-Cat QX reactor is driven)

    3. Do you mean that if you have 100 E-Cat QX reactors in one assembly, and each is rated (hypothetically) at 40W, that the overall output would be 4000W?

    Thank you if you can answer,

    Frank Acland

    4. Do you mean that

  113. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- no
    3- yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  114. Dino

    Caro Rossi,
    In the blog 22 Passi of Daniele Passerini in a comment is said that the probability that you will be able to start the production of the Ecats within the year 2018 is non real.
    Can you comment?
    Dino

  115. Andrea Rossi

    Dino:
    22 Passi, the Italian blog of Daniele Passerini, is an honest and equilibrated forum, wherein Mr Passerini publishes pros and cons. I think it is among the best Italian generalistic blogs that deal also with LENR issues, because it is driven without an agenda.
    Obviously, any comments author is free to give his opinion, but when a marathon runner is racing, the opinions of the spectators are not going to change the results of the race for better or worse.
    We ( my team and I ) are running to succeed to start the delivery of industrialized industrial plants within the year 2018 and if I will succeed it is not a matter of opinions, it is a matter of facts that will be done or not. The target is difficult, the effort is brutal, but I hope to win this marathon, while the sceptics can enjoy the race sitting on comfortable sofas, munching on pop-corn and sipping Coca-Cola.
    Warm Regards,

    You wrote your intellectual property has been patented in the world by 39 attorneys: can you disclose which Countries are they in?

  120. L.MD

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You are right to focus on heat production, which is the real duty of the Ecat, and leave the customers make with the heat what they need.
    Stay focused on the presentation of the product by end 2018.
    All the best,

    Dear Andrea,
    You replied to Frank Ackland that you do not yet develop Ecats for generating electricity, but if a customer wants to use an E-cat QX for generating electricity, would you be able/willing to deliver one with the right properties (i.e. High pressure steam/ 500 deg C) in relatively short terms after you have industrialized the QX modules?
    Thanks for answering our questions.

  126. Angelo V.

    Dr. Rossi, did you already try to assemble a large number of E-Cat QX together? Beyond the problems related to heat dissipation and temperature management, did you note if the operating parameters of the individual units are influenced by the proximity of the others? Thanks.

    Dear Andrea,

    With the E-Cat QX plants, will it be possible to use the output of the E-Cat to drive a generator which will produce electrical power to drive the E-Cat plant itself? In other words, have a self-looped system, with no external electrical supply necessary.

    If not, can you explain why not?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  141. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    To make electricity we need the Carnot Cycle, then we can use the electricity to run the Ecat. Theoretically possible, but economically useless and complicated, so far.
    What counts is the COP, with or without longer or shorted SSM. In future, after the launch of the product, we will spend time on this possibility, but I think in the short term our core business will remain to make heat, with which our Customers will make what they need.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  142. Harvey

    Dr. Rossi,

    Have you considered using 3D printing in your manufacturing process. The following article posted today in phys.org discusses 3D printing of nanoscale nickel lattices. Not sure if this would apply in your process.

    https://phys.org/news/2018-02-d-nanoscale-metal.html

    Best Regards,
    Harvey

  143. Andrea Rossi

    Harvey:
    I have consulted many 3D printing presumptive manufacturers, but the prices are not competitive yet, either for what concerns the cost of the manufactured objects or for the cost of the 3D printers. They still cannot be taken in considerations for manufacturing processes and not even for the cost of prototypes. The technology is in evolution, though, therefore maybe eventually it will become competitive.

    Warm Regards,

  146. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, I was reading the report sent in by Prof David Shea January 13th 2018 regarding Prof Atiko Takahashi.

    I understand physics from a geometry/maths perspective and have recently been investigating mass deficit because of the mechanism which I referred to as a compressed atom, being not aware of mass deficit. It has therefore been for me a curiosity. My understanding is that six is a cubic number and therefore related to octahedral cavities. In the report Prof Atiko mentions that ratios are important to COP. My understanding is that six is important to stability.

    Stability: Nickel 28 x 10 = 280 divide by Pd 46 = 6.086 10 x .086 = .86 of gap

    Lithium 3 x 22 = 66 divide by Na 11 = 6.00

    Therefore two cubic neutrals of opposite potential.

    Thereby each Pd electron is surrounded by x 6 Nickel electrons and each Na electron is surrounded by x6 Lithium electrons providing two cubic neutrals of differing potentials.

    Thereby Pd – major neg/minor neg (periodic table) is connected to Nickel being major neg/minor pos (periodic table). Every Pd electron is surrounded by x 6 Nickel electrons that are more positive than the Pd electron. This creates a cubic neutral with outside potential of negative major/positive minor. The inner potential is negative major/negative minor.

    Thereby Na – major pos/minor neg (periodic table) is connected to Lithium being major pos/minor pos (periodic table). Every Na electron is by x 6 Lithium electrons that are more positive than the Na electron. This creates a cubic neutral with outside potential of major positive/minor positive. The inner potential is major positive/minor negative.

    360 degrees represents a neutral. Therefore 22 parts of Lithium with one part Na provides a neutral 33 degrees. 280 parts of Ni with one part of Pd provides a neutral 326 degrees. Thereby there combined combination represents a neutral of 359 degrees. The 359 degrees requires two half potentials of positive and negative. The only way to provide such is one potential that resonates between the two cubic potentials i.e. hydrogen atom. What in theory the hydrogen atom would do is expand and contract with regards to its space, in a given time between the cubic neutrals because of being unattached. This activity in theory could shake the hydrogen atom to pieces by transforming its latent energy into kinetic energy that would produce plasma and thereby the heat without strong radiation.

    Dear Andrea:
    On the New York Times has been published today an interesting report about the fact that in China the government has prohibited the use of coal in households and small businesses, to comply with the requirements to reduce pollution and comply with the anti-global warming policy. The result has been that in places like Qiaoli, in the Shanxi region, where coal was the paramount fuel for everything, after it became an outlaw gas is too expensive and/or not sufficiently distributed, so that people suffers for insufficient heating. In China your Ecat could be really important.

  149. Andrea Rossi

    Chu:
    Very interesting.

    Dear Rossi
    In 1972 the famous book “The limits of development” of the Club of Rome came out. In recent years, these forecasts have been verified and updated with very worrying results.

    I give you two references
    in English: Is Global Collapse Imminent? -Turner_
    http://www.sustainable.unimelb.edu.au/files/mssi/MSSI-ResearchPaper-4_Turner_2014.pdf

    and in Italian: I veri limiti dello sviluppo (The true limits of development)
    http://www.aspoitalia.it/index.php/articoli/archivio-articoli-italiano-1/339-il-vero-limite-dello-sviluppo

    Although much criticism has been made of these forecasts, it is undeniable that they are the result of serious scientific work and that there are many confirmations today on their correctness and that the forecast that in the next 20-50 years there will be a serious global crisis must be taken seriously. The first crunches are already evident.

    If you do not already know these articles I hope you will read them and I am sure they will be important to you too because the ENERGY voice conditions these predictions a lot even though it is neither the only nor the most important element that will determine the future of humanity.

    Best wishes to you and your work

    Dear Andrea,

    It sounds like you have made very good progress. Congratulations on your recent successes! One question for you this morning …

    How are you holding up lately? Do you get enough sleep?

    Will (some, none, all) of the sales this year from the automated line have NDA non disclosure agreements as in the past?

    If there will be “some”, about what percentage of the sales do you think will have NDA agreements?

    Thank you for your replies,

    Tom

  153. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I am working very hard, but sleep enough. Luckily, God is allowing a good health to all of us.
    About the NDAs: surely some will allow us a presentation, also because the presentation will be better if made where a plant is working. We’ll see what we will be able to do.
    We will try to present 100% facts, 0% chatters.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Raffaele and Andrea Rossi,

    Raffaele, you said – “It is December 2, 1918, at 3:25 pm, Rossi pressing button “On” reactor LENR indistrual. Without any harmful radiation and without noise the boiler is gaining power. A new energy area is born.”

    As far as I know, E-Cats have not yet become Time Machines. However, LENR Industrialization (or Industrialisation) may very well begin during December 2018. Perhaps, even November of 2018 in time for Thanksgiving.

    Hopeful regards,

    Joseph Fine

  158. DvH

    Hello Mr. Rossi,

    posts in this blog indicate that you are working on the manufacturing of some E-Cat QX.
    Is it public, what that device will deliver? Hot water? Steam? Electricity ?
    While working day and night on the manufacturing, you should not forget to setup a sales-network…

    In the last few years, whenever an Ecat-device or module or prototype was in action, Andrea R. was not far
    away to keep watch, turn the knobs and explain things. Somewhen quite soon after you have manufacturing and running plants, there will be Ecats running without Andrea Rossi in the vincinity. It will be like kids leaving the parent’s house.
    Are you prepared for this??

    It is December 2, 1918, at 3:25 pm, in a secret place so far.
    76 years earlier in Chicago Enrico Fermi launches the first chain reaction of the uranium reactor.
    It is December 2, 1918, at 3:25 pm, Rossi pressing button “On” reactor LENR indistrual. Without any harmful radiation and without noise the boiler is gaining power. A new energy area is born …
    I hope to be part of the first earthlings to thank you

    Hi, Caleb Warf again here, with another question: can the Ecats reach a production of 3 GigaJoules per second?
    Thank you so much: you inspired me to study Physics. When I will reach a PhD will I be able to work with you?
    Thank you Sir

  163. Andrea Rossi

    Caleb Warf:
    3 GigaJoules is an enormous amount of energy! To produce this amount of energy you need a power of 3000 MW !
    Nonetheless, theoretically you can reach any number, so far you put enough modules in series and parallels to reach that number. Practically, things become more complicated and not convenient.
    When you will be a PhD in Physics contact me.
    Again Good Luck!

    I think it was a missunderstanding of my question about the audiences silence after the demo in Stockholm. I wondered if they were skeptic or chocked of that the whole world´s energy supply will be both simplier and cheaper.
    It was even sent viral on internet but nothing was written or sent in media.

    My name is Caleb Warf from Evans, Georgia and I am currently in high school.
    I have been studying LENR since 2013 and have a massive passion for this subject. I admire and respect Andrea Rossi for his revolutionary work.
    For a high school research paper I am making, please answer this question: is it possible to miniaturize the Ecat also below the dimension of a home reactor?
    Please answer me: your response means so much for me.
    Caleb Warf

  178. Andrea Rossi

    Caleb Warf:
    First of all, the answer: yes, we are working on the miniaturization.
    After the execution of my duty to give you the answer, allow me to give you a suggestion. The education that you are getting in your high school and the education that you will get in a college afterwards are the most important pillars of your future. During this education period what is extremely important is that you study as well as you can what your Professors teach to you. In this period it is more important that you learn very well the fundamentals of Physics and Mathematics. LENR are a complex matter, also very controversial: it is fine that you read about them, but this is a matter that has to be studied seriously only after you will have full intellectual property of the fundamentals of Physics and Mathematics, otherwise you risk to build constructions upon the surface of an ocean. Don’t loose too much time with LENR and Andrea Rossi, spend most of your time to study as well as you can what your Professors teach to you. This is very important.
    Good Luck!

    Dear Andrea,

    I realize you cannot give precise values yet, but when you say a 1 MW E-Cat QX would cost “much less” than the old plants quoted at $1.5 million each, which of the following would be closest:

    a) 1/2 the cost
    b) 1/4 the cost
    c) 1/10 the cost

  205. Stefano

    Dear Andrea,

    In the demonstration of last November the “weak” point was the cooling system inside the power regulator for the reactor.

    I said “weak” meaning that most of the energy consumed by the power supply/regulator went for cooling. To my eyes, it is like to have a super-technological electric car with all the best instrumentation and driving assistance inside but powered by batteries large as a truck. it is like an electric Ferrari pluged to a truck on the back.
    I am following with enthusiasm your work and I really hope you reach all the targets you aim to. I need to ask a few questions:

    1) is there any better control system (less volume, less need for cooling)?
    2) if a better control system is available, why you did not show it at the presentation?

    3) if the control is difficult and no better controller is available, why the power of the reactor was limited at its 30% or so? In other words, why you did not show the full power of the reactor, then making the measurements of COP simpler. In fact, if the reactor would have been pushed at its 100%, the output power would have been much higher than the input power EVEN considering the enery wasted for cooling. In this case, also the measurements of the input could have been simpler. In asking this, I assume that the output power of the reactor is by far much higher as compared to the power adsorbed by the cooling system, that it could have been neglectable as respect to the power output of the reactor

    5) Following my considerations on the cooling system, it seems to me (I hope to be wrong) that QX, as presented, is not really ready for the industrialization. Therefore, as I assume you have a cleaver plan, I expect you did not show (on purpose) the best of the QX. Then my question: why not showing QX at its best (avoiding any scoop of course)?
    6) As the cooling is not needed for cooling the heat coming from the reactor, I assume the cooling is needed to cool some electronic components going to fry when high frequency pulses are given to the reactor. Could you prepare a different power supply with more passive dissipation of the heat? It seems to me that inside the power supply there must be some overheating similar to the processor working at high frequencies in the domestic personal computers. So, most of the times a fan is applied on the top of the processor for dissipation. However, for silent computers, there are passive dissipators. I do not think the frequencies I saw in the oscilloscope for the reactor were so high in frequency as compared to those inside a PC (a PCs goes easily to 1, 2 o 4 GHz), so I assume the passive cooling should work very well as the frequencies in the oscilloscope were not in the order of GHz for sure. I would appreciate some comments on the frequencies and the related heating showed on the oscilloscope at the demo.
    Thank you very much,
    Cari saluti,

    Stefano

    You have a business plan, share what is planned in the coming months and until the end of the year (in the context of the calendar plan).
    Give some time frames, not dates but months.

    1. When do you plan to start assembling the robots on the assembly line?
    2. When do you plan to manufacture the first unit?

    I think that’s what’s worried about all your supporters now.

    Sorry, may questions distract you from work, but for years we’ve got used to reading your answers, they then get into blogs and forums. They are read by thousands of interested people.

    Dear Andrea,

    I want to apologize for the previous misleading question in response to an earlier question about the “material the reactor that contains the plasma” (not the plasma itself), which may have confused a few readers. I was thinking about the pill size fuel, once used in the past, that released the hydrogen within the catalyst. I guess a sign of ageing. 😊
    This helps me appreciate some of what you are having to deal with especially in this crucial time of industrialization. Your patience is exemplary that must come from another source: “Pro Christo Omnia in Deo” (your quote from ‘An Impossible Invention’ by Mats Lewan). Thank you!

    I am sure that the E-Kat cause as much explosive development of engineering and technology.
    Do you think we are already in the “1900” year?

    And another question (I think this should not be a secret, because in the previous experiments you have repeatedly called), the number (weight) of the “fuel” loaded in the Quark QX.
    And the second question (the actual variation of the first), what is the specific energy intensity of the “fuel”?

    Dear Andrea,

    As you open first automated factory to produce 1 MW eCat QX.

    1. How many units are you anticipating to produce per day, week, month, year?
    2. Also, since the units are going to be much smaller than original container size, what is the pricing that you anticipate per unit?
    3. What would be the cost of recharging a unit on the annual bases?
    4. Do you also have a forecast of the total cost of operating a unit per year (human operator, maintenance, input energy, etc)?

    Regards,

    Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    It is fascinating that you have invented a new alloy as the QX plasma catalyst. Was this alloy essential for the need to resist the melting point of the high temperatures required for full operation or melt into a plasma state when a required temperature is met. Could you explain further if neither? Will you patent the alloy if within patent criteria or would that be too risky with patent rogue nations? Thank you.
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m sure you’ve considered this long ago and figured out the answer:
    1) is there any commercial value to be gained as a result of the byproducts of transmutations that occur within the E-Cat– that is from reselling rare, more valuable, elements that are produced by the transmutation of common, less valuable, elements?
    2) Or would the net quantity produced– even with large numbers (I’m thinking ahead) of Multi-MW commercial installations– still be too small to consider?

    Thanks,
    Walt C.

    Dear A. Rossi

    We can pricize for Mr.Gennady the following thing. Steam tubines have a 60% efficiency and alternators 95%. The conversion of heat into electricity shows a loss of 45% and that without counting the energy expenses of the condenser, pumps etc …
    I guess with an E-Cat as a heat source, a 45% yield would already be a good performance, 50% is unlikely and 55% impossible.

    Best regards

    Raffaele

    The COP of the Ecat comes from the ratio between the thermal energy made and the electric energy consumed. After that, all the conversion efficiency are common.

    Dear Andrea,

    there is nothing more enjoyable than seeing you in such a positive mood after the Stockholm demonstration. You appear to have a clear path to your goal: the E-Cat QX in the marketplace.

    You’ve suggested that your expanded complex team has substantially modified the QX in preparation for market release. You’ve shared with Frank Acland the ‘new’ E-Cat QX will be a highly adaptable heat source capable of meeting the needs of many industrial applications. And, of course you’ve stated that the IPO of E-Cat company would come on the initial success in the industrial marketplace.

    All of this suggests a business development plan that will greatly and positively impact the IPO’s acceptance by investors: You can and will work with different OEM’s supplying E-Cats to different industries having very different performance requirements. These OEMs will then configure and build the ‘interface’ between the E-Cat and the particular industrial application’s heat/steam requirements.

    Does this fairly represent your path to your IPO? If it is, I think the market for your IPO will be enormous and you will easily obtain the financing for the massive attack upon the “heat source” market you envision.

    Of course, my best to you, your complex team, and your tennis coach.

    ps. Does your tennis coach still feel that you don’t bring enough heat to your game?

    Dear Andrea,
    Today it was concluded that the production of natural gas in the Netherlands must be halfed. It caused increasing Earthquakes in the north of the country. As non of the buildings in tha large area can withstand these Earthquakes this decision will be taken. This has a huge consequence for the heating of houses (and the industry), because almost all the houses are heated with this gas from our National resource.
    You can imagen that this will cause a huge change, because it is nearly impossible to change the boilers to another type of gas overnight. There is a large market waiting for you there.
    I know you are working as hard as you can to bring the Ecat QX on the market ASAP, but can you tell us if in your view the QX is, apart from getting the licenses, also ready for the domestic market if your production factory is ready to go?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  277. Dear Andrea,

    Oggi sono stato all’ Accademia dei Lincei a Roma dove si è tenuto un convegno sulle “Grandi Imprese Italiane “. Era prevista una sezione sull’energia alla quale avrebbero dovuto partecipare le presidentesse ENEL ed ENI che invece sono state sostituite da due rappresentanti di alto livello delle due società. Come prevedevo gran discorsi su oleodotti, gasdotti, molto su petrolio e carbone e un pò meno su nucleare (fissione), fotovoltaico ed eolico e assolutamente nulla sulla fusione fredda. Ma quel che è peggio che costoro parlano del futuro, i prossimi 50 anni, come se nulla dovesse cambiare se non nella modalità di distribuzione dell’energia e negli accordi tra i paesi per gestirla. Nel pubblico tra varie personalità accademiche e governative ho notato Prodi e Rubbia. Purtroppo nonostante abbia sventolato la mano per intervenire mi è stato fatto osservare che non era prevista alcuna discussione ( ipse dixit !). Tornato a casa davvero disgustato ho scritto questa mail, che trovate in calce, al professor Alberto Clò, economista, ex ministro dell’industria nel governo Dini, che ha moderato la sessione con sagacia ma allineato con quanto riferito dalle due suddette società.

    Cari saluti a tutti

    Gentile Professore Clò

    Ho ascoltato il suo discorso all’Accademia del Lincei oggi 1° febbraio, le faccio i miei complimenti per la quantità e qualità delle informazioni che ha trasmesso e per la sagacia del suo discorso. Mi spiace però che non ci sia stata la possibilità di un dibattito perché, dopo gli interventi dei due rappresentanti ENEL ed ENI, avrei voluto intervenire sul fatto che ancora in ambienti così prestigiosi nessuno voglia parlare di Fusione Fredda che è già una realtà commerciale.

    L’argomento è trattato da almeno un centinaio di laboratori nel mondo e tra questi la NASA, l’ MIT, e la NISSAN che hanno depositato brevetti internazionali. Andrea Rossi poi, in US Florida nel 2016 ha fatto funzionare ininterrottamente il suo sistema ECAT da 1 Mw termico per un anno consecutivo senza interruzioni. Il sistema è brevettato internazionalmente ed è già commerciale per cifre di gran lunga inferiori, a parità di produzione, ai sistemi attuali (nucleare fissione, eolico e fotovoltaico). Occupa lo spazio di un container, consuma quantità irrisorie di Nickel Litio e Idrogeno per un anno intero senza ricarica, senza emissioni radioattive né scorie. Nel 2017 Rossi ha reso modulare e miniaturizzato il suo dispositivo che ha presentato presso la Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences il 24/11/2017 al cospetto di una settantina di fisici ed ingegneri di tutto il mondo, tra i quali la presidentessa del comitato per il premio Nobel.

    Ho avuto l’onore di essere invitato alla presentazione durante la quale Rossi ha messo in funzione, davanti a tutti, il suo micromodulo da 20W delle dimensioni di un fusibile elettrico, che ha aumentato la temperatura di un litro d’acqua da 20° a 40° in circa un ora con COP di 500 , 500 volte più energia in uscita rispetto a quella in entrata per mantenere la reazione !

    Rossi afferma di essere prossimo alla commercializzazione su larghissima scala nel corso di questo anno. Ovviamente più moduli possono essere connessi in parallelo per raggiungere la potenza termica richiesta dall’utente, anche oltre 1 Mw.

    Informazioni inconfutabili sulla fusione Fredda sono in rete già da parecchi anni, non credo possibile che in ambienti come ENEL ed ENI nessuno ne abbia sentito parlare, credo piuttosto che non se ne VOGLIA parlare per paura del profondo cambiamento dell’economia mondiale che sta per avvenire, ma fare gli struzzi certo non giova. In una prospettiva molto prossima le uniche reti che sopravviveranno saranno quella idrica e quella fognaria, niente TRASPORTO di energia !

    Da qualche anno ho cercato di coinvolgere autorità accademiche, personalità governative e giornalisti senza il minimo riscontro. Se l’argomento interessa, e dovrebbe…, posso fornirle della bibliografia internazionale o metterla in contatto con Andrea Rossi, che avrà capito essere il più avanti di tutti, ma talmente scoraggiato in Italia da essersi dovuto recare all’estero per proseguire il suo lavoro.

    Lei dirà perché un neurologo parla di queste cose ? Semplicemente perché nonostante in pensione non mi sono ancora fritto il cervello.

    Cordiali saluti.

    Dear Andrea,

    If I understood it correctly, the question from Raffaele Bongo was about efficiency ratio of converting heat to electricity. Do you mean that the 1 MW eCat QX plant will have a higher ration than 40%? Is it going to be 45%, 50%, 55% …?

  290. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Further to my previous explanation that I believe incomplete due to an exclusion of Lithium I shall now attempt to complete it. Also I think I should mention that I believe Hydrogen in the periodic table is in the wrong position. It is a unique pure neutral withers zero point of gravity, central to its proton, providing its proton with an absolute maximum size positive potential (absolute by being not off centre) and its negative with an absolute maximum volume negative potential. This provides the Hydrogen atom with its superior bonding properties. In the periodic table, I believe, Hydrogen should be positioned above Nickel inline with Helium.

    Lithium is a size positive element in comparison to Nickel which can be considered as the volume negative element. T diagram the LENR process, as I see it, Draw a small circle for Lithium, leave a gap and draw a bigger circle for Nickel. Draw a series of smaller circles attached to the Lithium, these being the Hydrogen atoms, attached by there electrons which distorts the Hydrogen atom by pushing the proton off centre. Do the same for the Nickel, except these are attached by there protons which are pulled off centre by attraction and which also distorts the Hydrogen atom in an opposing direction to that of the Lithium. In the exact middle position between the Lithium and Nickel draw a small circle, this is an undistorted neutral Hydrogen atom. Then using two chains of Hydrogen atoms connect the central neutral hydrogen atom to the Nickel and Lithium by distorted atoms. One more thing is needed, I believe, to get the reaction started and this is photons. To generate the photons you need current to jump gaps between metals. Once the photons are generated by the current they are neutrals that stick to mass and acquire the charge of the particular mass, becoming charge particles (my previous explanation describes photons). The photons of the Nickel are stemless goblet shaped being negatively charged (its base facing the Nickel). The photons of the Lithium are pyramid shaped being positively charged (its apex facing the Lithium). The base of the stemless goblet and the apex of the pyramid are both of positivity but being of differing neutrals are of different charge dimensions. Thereby, to become equal in neutrality both charges travel to the middle position on there hydrogen chain where they neutralize as a potential of a photon. This activity creates an event horizon of a gravity value at some point around the central undistorted Hydrogen atom causing it to display a degree of kinetic energy which throws the proton into its electron cloud whereupon plasma is manufactured, creating photons that sustain the LENR process. If indeed this process is correct, or almost, there is, I believe, a back up method to demonstrate in a different way how a LENR process is produced. Your method uses gas which is highly energized. Flieshchman and Pons used a liquid which is less energized. Take the set up that Flieshchman and Pons used and activate the process in the dark for a duration of time then expose both the cathode and the anode to photons at the same time. This in theory will displace the absorbed Deuterium from the two plates simultaneously and create heat. I would suggest various durations regarding process and photon stimulation.

    @Marco, Regarding

    “……characteristics in a scientific theory?”

    In my opinion the most important thing in a new theory of any sort is that it makes predictions that can be proven by physical experiments.

    When the various predictions are confirmed by several experiments we may conclude that the theory is right.

    So for any LENR theory to be valid, it must be able to make some predictions that can be confirmed by experiments.

    > The Kilopower by NASA uses radioactivity for generating heat, then converted to electricity using a Stirling system. It could use a QuarkX for heat instead of radioactivity

    Yes! And again about space news, SpaceX will attempt the first launch of its new giant rocket, the Falcon Heavy, on Feb. 6, from the historic Launch Pad 39A — the same one used for NASA’s Apollo moon missions and space shuttle flights — at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, window opening 1:30 p.m. EST (1830 GMT). For its debut flight, the Falcon Heavy is carrying Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster into space. If successful (not easy), will deliver a Tesla Roadster into a heliocentric orbit that will eventually send the midnight-cherry-red electric car by Mars.

    It seemed Andrea and Musk were in contact

    http://e-catworld.com/2015/05/07/rossi-on-telsla-motors-and-elon-musk-we-are-in-contact/

    so i wonder if Andrea will take the time to go to the show…

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    You recently used the term: “Fluid Heater Basic Version” in a response to a question. I was wondering if the fluid heater is your prototype industrial product (basic version) and that it consists of the integration of 100 QX devices mounted on a heat-exchanger platform and electrical wiring connections to the QX devices, plus a cable that connects to an external electronics controller?

    a. Is this an accurate description of a Fluid Heater Basic Version?

    b. What will you call individual QX units: QX Reactor, QX Module, QX Unit, or QX device?

    c. What will you call the integrated array of 100 QX reactors mounted on a heat-exchanger and associated wiring: Fluid Heater, Fluid Heater Module, or Fluid Heater Assembly?

    d. Are you planning to call these system components by different names in the future?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions, if you can at this time.

    Bill Hayes

  320. Andrea Rossi

    Bill Hayes:
    a- the description will be given at the presentation of the product
    b,c,d- the name will be for all the Ecats followed by the number in Watts of the power

  335. John

    Dear Andrea,
    Is it true that your US Patent has been granted also by the European Patent office and from the Canada Patent Office? The success with all these three patent offices would make your patent very solid, because they are the most selective patent offices of the world and it is very difficult to be approved by all of them…it is a veritable “Triple Crown”!
    Cheers
    John

  336. Andrea Rossi

    John:
    Yes, it is absolutely true. Many other Countries have granted the patent: the area where our patent has been approved covers the 90% of the world’s GDP. The investments in this sector of our IP have been intense, as well as the work to arrive to this result, but at the end we got it.
    Warm Regards,

    Yes, in general it is absolutely like a ponzi scheme, but some part of this critique could be made nowadays for the value of a large number of other financial assets, like hyperinflated currencies or stock shares. It is evident that in these days, ie, the fall of dollar, the institutional purchase of bonds and suppression of gold price are instrumental to artificially inflate wall street and sustain the debt financing. In my opinion, this is also a dangerous scheme where many people will enter the market and eventually be burned.

    About bitcoin, usually, they answer that there is an intrinsic value due to the “scarcity” of the mined cons (after a projected amount, it is not possible extract coins any more); this is ridiculous, because the inflation of countless coins is there to show the absurdity of that supposed ingrained “deflation”.

    If you run through my post, I think that there are some applications, linked to the blockchain concept, that could some day bring some, very few of these coins to be adopted in market exchanges. I could not exclude at all, that there is some possible application in your market sector too. There were some people discussing it also in Frank Acland’s site.

  340. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Interesting.

  341. Dear Andrea:

    Most of my background is in economics, but I do have some basic background in the sciences …… Dr. Gullstrom is functioning at a level a few orders of magnitude above my capabilities.

    Nevertheless, here is a thought: The conventional wisdom appears to be that E=MC^2 is the ultimate source of energy. As if it is believed there could not be a better way of generating energy than H + H = He, simply because that is how the sun is believed to generate its energy. But it is known, for example, that quasars produce(d) huge quantities of energy by some method or other, and it is not clear to me that the method by which they produced energy is fully understood.

    Previously it was posted here (I forget who it was) that the energy claimed to be produced by the E-cat QX in one year appears to be the equivalent of converting 20% of the mass of the E-cat’s tiny fuel charge into energy which, the poster suggested, seemed surprising high.

    So here is my point/question: Is it possible that the mechanism by which the E-cat produces energy might be unrelated to the conversion of mass to energy, and is by a completely different, new, process.

    So in summary, perhaps your E-cat LENR isn’t fusion at all. Perhaps it is a method far superior to mere fusion. If this were the case it would, among other things, explain the absence of harmful radiations.

    Thank you for tolerating dumb questions like this one on your blog!

    And also, needless to say, when you Andrea note that “what is the principal of their value?
    A currency incorporates work and assets of the Countries it is coined from, but a bitcoin what incorporates, apart the algorythm it comes from?”, as usual you’re focusing the exact, most important issues of all in a very short and condensed sentence, as only you are capable of doing. The “incorporated assets of the countries” is the key to understand why these coins could make some people very rich, but will surely fail their original supreme purpose of democratize society in a capitalistic, imperialistic-centered economy.

  346. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Thank you for the explication, but allow me: if I run like crazy around a pillar with enormous efforts to reach the distance of 10 thousand miles remaining in the same point, this has too an intrinsic value, because this is made by an enormous expense of Joules. Think how many steaks, spaghetti, you name it, I eat it, to complete 10 thousand miles around the circumference of a pillar, not to mention the shoes. Problem is that this incorporated value has no worth because does not incorporate any value of use, therefore its objective value of exchange is purely virtual. To me it looks like a ponzi scheme: the ones that will remain with the bitcoins in their hands at the end of the speculation process, will be able to sell to nobody their bitcoins, as expensive to be made as they might have been.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  347. orsobubu

    Hi Andrea, as usual I’m flattened for the huge progress of your work! Fantastic, I’m very optimistic!

    About bitcoin, perhaps I can help you to understand it a little. I have some friends who left their work to dedicate to these cryptocurrencies exchanges instead (!). Imagine you deciding overnight to leave the Ecat project forever and starting trade in digital coins with your little laptop in your bedroom, closing this blog and saying goodbye Fabiani, ABB and all of your team!! Crazy!!

    When some reader suggest you bitcoin as a financial system, this is interesting, think about it in this way.

    Start assuming there are more than 1500 digital coins today, with at large the same concepts, so when I say bitcoin I intend any coin of them. First there is bitcoin as a storage of value, like gold. Really, the system of “extracting” them by very complex calculations is similar to the huge effort of mining gold, so you have an intrinsic value of the needed human work (computer construction, computer running, etc). Then, the value floats up and down like gold in the market. And similarly you have moments of wild speculation, so that in december cryptocurrencies hit an highest price 30 times the peak of the biggest previous speculation bubble in history, the famous Tulip bubble in 1637, which was itself at least double in size of the previous biggest, the NASDAQ dot com bubble in 2001. Apart from this, on the long time you can consider valuable or not bitcoin as a storage value like any other financial asset.

    Then there is the blockchain function, a really interesting concept I’m sure it will adopted in infinite cases in every sector of human activity in the future (also in energy production) because it is a virtual register where all types of transaction can be written down forever without any mean of frauds, errors, corruption, etc. It is a game changing technology and it will wipe out numberless of manual clerk workers in the same way of Ecat, robots, automation etc will wipe out countless old wage workers around the world. It is, intrinsecally, an absolute “communist” instrument of production, it generates enormous quantity of user value, intended as usefulness for mankind, but containing absolute thin quantities of human work (it needs a programmer and a very small staff to create and run a blockchain), so having the potentiality to destroy huge quantities of exchange value (money, in averaged cycle, is only produced with human work).

    This is very good for a communist society (no more 8 hours daily work shifts, only robots, no more scammers, thieves, every sector of human activity planned and controlled by blockchain nodes around the world without need of market, banks, money, etc, only the efficiency and correctness of transactions and scientific procedures for everybody. But this is also useful in capitalism of course. Imagine ie the mechanism of payment of ecat consumption. With a blockchain you are in perfect control of the process of production and distribution. Or imagine Andrea Rossi making a donation of some million dollars in bitcoin to charity and to the orsobubu. No more fear of being stolen or mismanaged by thieves or boureaucracy.

    Of course, you will ask what is the need of bitcoins if we can use blockchain marxistically without need of money at all. But this is another fantastic example of contradiction in our capitalistic societies. So, bitcoin was born as a reaction of some very clever people to the economic crisis due to subprimes in US in 2008: no more banks, state centralization, taxation, etc, a sort of rebellion, also mistakenly called a revolution, against these enemies of the people, in need to reappropriate of their finances. But they invented blockchain inside a capitalistic economy, and they ruined it at all. Because with bitcoin, which is money, you replicates all the faults of fiat money, dollar, euro, etc. and you can clearly see the financial bubbles, the bitcoin robberies, the scams in cryptocurrencies, the speculation, the extreme social inequality in favor of whealthy people after they collected hundreds of bitcoins without having any merit for this. Not to mention the obvious fact that banks and states are organizing to reinstall the control over the digital coins.

    Bitcoins are designed to work hand in hand with blockchain, but obviously we could imagine an analogue system without the need of any coin at all. In this sense, bitcoin, as money, reflects the same concept of any other real world coin, because it is the transformation of surplus value – exploited surplus human work – in capital. Exactly for these reasons, in these months new astonishing capitalistic applications of bitcoin and blockchain are rising. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of new startups in this field. There are start ups also in the energy sector.

    I will make an example. Take indahash, it is a new coin based on a blockchain, working this way. There is a firm wanting to advertise his products via an “influencer”, a well known guy appearing on social media, facebook, etc; the influencer is no more contacted, hired and payed in dollars directly by the firm; instead, the firm contacts indahash, which contacts the influencer: and both of them are payed in indahash coins so there is a circulation of indahash coins between 3 different users: the influencers, the brands and their audience. Brands use indahash coins for marketing campaigns. When an influencer receives the indahash coin, he has the possibility to exchange them for products of a brand, to get discounts on the purchase of the product and to be always informed about the news. The influencers can also create their own coins and use them to increase their number of followers through the use of prizes and games. The influencers’ audience can use thecoins received and exchange them for exclusive prizes, such as gadgets signed by influencers, meetings and social activities. The blockchain assures the absolute correctness and intangibility of all these transactions.

    You can only start to imagine the infinite, parasitic variety of – in my opinion – absolutely useless ways (I call them the degradation of a rotten, imperialistic society) of application of this system in overall markets, with the absurdity of a duplication of money systems instead of a unique medium such the dollar. Nations grew through centuries of wars and millions of deaths to centralize the markets and the respective coins, to create a geographical space with an uniform profit rate, and now some programmers, thinking they are semi-gods holding the key to create worldwide distributed wealthness , aim to decentralize everything and duplicate the procedures. Very weird and perverse!

    But why some one of your readers propose cryptos as a way of finance your corporation? You could find incredibly creative ways to apply them to such an important industry as yours, but in strict regard to financing, I see it this way. In the “old” system, a company needing to collect big funds, needed to go public in stock markets, with all the difficulties and problems with it. A more modern way was the concept of crowdfunding, collect fund from voluntary sustainers, or ask business angels, like in your case with IH. With cryptos, you can make a Leonardo corp digital coin (symbol: ECAT, you always have to design a symbol and a 3-4 letter shortcut for your coin hehe) based on a public blockchain, then start “mining” it in the millions, then start a public sell of these undervalued coins to the public. Since your business model is light-years ahead of the generality of other cryptocurrency startups, and based on ultra-solid products, your coin will capitalize in very short time billions of value: the sustainers will be rich (not the orsobubu, because he is marxist and dont collects coins – but accepts donations), Leonardo corp will have all the funds it needs without going public, and all of your customers will have extra premium services, ie to pay their heat without any glitch (for example, there is a coin designed to make micro-payments on a fly, such consumption going into electrical bills, where the system is embedded inside bulb lamps without the need of an electric company, since the production of electricity could be decentralized as well, thank to the ecat of course!).

    Dear Andrea,

    thank you for the openness of your reply to my “stress test” question. I appreciate the guiding force of “speed to market”.

    To me, this suggests that the post-Stockholm enhanced QX might be “over-engineered” as I, a non-engineer, understand it . . . where the materials and specifications include a margin of comfort of say 25%, or 50%, or 100% to ensure speedy extraction of 40W heat and inordinate durability of materials over a specified time frame, such as 2 years for the singlet module, or 10-15 years for the super-structure of heat transfer materials of the 100QX 4kW unit and/or miniaturized controller module.

    Am I suggesting too much about the decision to delay “stress testing”?

    As always, my best to you and the team.

    Dear Andrea,

    I wish for you in 2018 success with bringing a product to the market. However I also wish for you some time for relaxation. It seems to me that you’re working with some limited resources under a lot of pressure. Chronical stress is not the solution, however bright the invention might be!

  357. Andrea Rossi

    Mattias Andersson:
    The horse has been harnessed, now has to pull. Thank you for your concern!
    Warm Regards,

  358. Buck

    Dear Andrea,

    I can imagine you are very encouraged with the enhanced design of the QX reactor + controller arising after your successful Stockholm demonstration. That and the decision to rate and run the QX at 40W for the singlet, for the unit configuration of 100 QX’s, and for the 1MW plant configuration.

    Do you and your partner see it as prudent to “stress test” all this redesign work for the different configurations so as to confirm expected operational limits? All this before you go through the expense of programming the robots? Who knows what you and your engineering team might observe during this stress test . . . certainly refinements to software and hardware may spring from this experience.

  359. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    Thank you for your suggestion, but at this point we have to deliver first, eventually we will stress test the evolution.
    Thank you for your kind attention to our work,

    Regarding applications in space: Actually a 1MW ECat QX power plant on the moon in a moon base or some or some other deap space application could be immensely useful even just as a thermal source during the long nights or dark periods or in deep space at or beyond mars orbit. Even more so if it could provide electrical power or support propulsion etc especially if it was small and light enough to launch could be configured to run at say 50kW for 20 years.

    I know at this time the focus is on the product and it’s early to think of these kinds of applications. But once the product is released some of these organizations and new space technology companies should be really considering the E-Cat-QX for future mission planning. These missions can take a decade or two to plan design and build. In that time frame these applications could be really viable I think.

    I see the focus now is on the product and your past presentation was focused on this and it’s eventual presentation as a product. I wonder will there be some point in the future where you will be presenting the product more generally after the initial product release with a view to find and develop its use in specific potential applications or its development and optimization to fulfill these particular uses like this and others?

    I think that will be an important moment for many could generate huge interest ion people who are quitely waitin for that moment and could be the next key milestone once the product itself is released.

    Dear Andrea, Kinetic energy etc. with regards LENRs. This explanations complex regarding neutrals and photons but I am giving it a go from my unacademic understanding of a mechanism and I hope it can help explain LENRs in some way. Tried to condense it as much as possible.

    We all know that kinetic energy is that which keeps a body in motion even when the force that moved it is removed but what is the mechanism that induces kinetic energy into an object?. My understanding is simply displacement of the internal structure of the object, brought about by an object travelling over a distance in a given time. One attribute that all structures contain is gravity being the binding force that maintains the structure over a given period of time with regards a change in environment. [The mechanical mechanism previously described contains an inner binding force that can be considered as an economy flow. This flow circulates as two helical trajectories produced upon contact of the two unequal oscillating masses of structured air that rotate in the same direction but do subsequently come into contact in the centripetal position of the mechanism. Thereby two vibrating helical trajectories of flow return back across the inner flow and combine within the inner oscillating mass of the inner structure. The two unequal masses, that create the helical trajectories upon contact, readjust becoming of the same dimensions and these also oscillate around a common axis as they exit the mechanism, only to return on a macro loop that surrounds the mechanism and that because of a vibrational frequency of the manufactured circuits they insulate the manufactured structured field by creating a push/pull force of neutrality (this frequency could be responsible for a valency value) prevents the mechanism from having an attractive force. This information is relevant to the explanation. To create any structure a binary activity has to exist either between two masses of size/volume dimensions, or multiples such, such as a proton or electron or two particles that constitute a structure of no mass (I refer to a photon). Hydrogen has a weak binding force between its proton and electron bond. The proton and electron rotate in the same direction and thereby maintain a necessary given distance within its atomic structure. The electron circumnavigates the proton by an oscillating activity that maintains separation by an undetectable neutral force. Every structure with mass has the potential to become neutral. In the LENR process, it could be that this distance between the proton and electron is increased creating a more distinct void/point of gravity to occur between these two masses. One comprised of particles of size/positivity and one of particles of volume/negativity. The proton being of size dimension could be drawn into a fissure of nickel by gravity created by an applied current. The created void/gravity value between each mass i.e. proton/electron, creates a structure comprised of an admixture of charges of size and charges taken from the two hosts. This manufactured structure is a neutral between two hosts/masses of opposite charges. The neutral, can be considered as one event horizon between two gravity masses, that contains an inner point of zero gravity and an outer environmental gravity value. The donated charges being within an event horizon that is a constructed neutral, are mobile charge potentials that over a distance in space and time continually alternate to become size positive, volume negative and intermediate neutral (this configuration I shall explain later). The hydrogen atom at this time does not exist as such. What exists is a size mass of a proton, volume mass of an electron and a neutral mass that rotates counter to that of the proton and electron, vibrates and pulsates because it is a neutral between two potentials. All current produces interregnums whether artificially induced or not. If the fissure suffers an interregnum of current, it loses a gravity value. A neutral is a structure of photons only, so when the proton is released from the fissure the neutral collapses due to a lack of necessary space releasing photons into its volume negative environment causing the negative cloud to expand because photons have no mass but do take up space (explanation later). The proton because of its release incurs velocity that displaces its gravity, inducing kinetic energy allowing the proton to penetrate the electron cloud and reacts by producing neutrals on its now 360degree event horizon. I suspect plasma is formed by the condensing of neutrals formed around a zero point of gravity within a negative environment. Neutrals are formed of photons, therefore when the neutrals are discharged from the manufactured plasma, the integral photons are released into the negative environment where they take up a degree of space. With regards the self sustain mode of a LENR, it could be that if a photon lodged itself within a fissure, it could in theory set up a pulse/vibration creating heat then cold due to the activity of the two neutrals within a restricted area, this could pull in a proton and propel out the proton to maintain a continuous reaction without the need of an applied current.
    Photons are massless. To have mass, I believe, you need a minimum of one proton and one electron. Photons are comprised of just two particles that in space and time alternate to become size positive, volume negative and neutral intermediate. They are closely associated to the pyramid being within the event horizon of a neutral. Photons could be visioned as such. Draw a triangle, cut off the apex, make it flat because of it being of a zero point of gravity. The base being an environmental gravity value. The sides of the triangle represent the tangential forces within the horizon. Only one of the sides should be considered because of particle activity. The volume negative particle descends on the outer slope of the wall towards the apex its tangential curve, at the same instant from the apex a size positive particle ascends on the inner side of the wall towards the base on an inner tangential curve. The volume and the size of each charge will adjust in accordance upon its position with that of the wall. Consequently at the midway point both charges are of the same dimension of neutrality and occupy two spaces, that equal that of half the area of that of the base of the pyramid,( being geometrically balanced) this causes an outward pressure of one particle and an inward pressure of the other particle (this activity occurs in the mechanism). The two particles are on helical trajectories of a structure with no mass (Mass is definitive, alternating charges are neither one thing or another). Because the two helical trajectories are both spinning around the same central axis of there pyramid, an illusion of shape is produced. Thereby the photon in time and space would alternate its shape between that of a stemless goblet and that of a pyramid. The goblet would appear when the two neutrals exist. The pyramid would exist when the two opposite charges exist out of there midway position. Thereby in time and space the photon would vibrate to maintain its two shapes. It could be said that the zero point of gravity and the environmental gravity value are connected by an intermediate gravity value being an event horizon. The two charges never lose contact because they represent the neutral value of a given space. Resistance of a structure to expand when subjected to an influx of positive and negative potentials of neutrals or photons constitutes as a measure of a containment of energy in degrees of measurable heat. When a charge is occupying a large area like on a circumferential dimension, a charge is active and free to move over its area of existence as a negative. When a charge is occupying a confined area like in a central position around a point of zero gravity, a charge is restrained in its movement within its area of existence as a positive. Thereby when a positive increases its velocity by entering a larger area and the negative decreases its velocity because of less space due to an uninvited guest, two displacements can register as a value of electrical energy, heat energy or light energy dependent upon the value of the attained neutral and that of resistance. This subject could be said to be endless but one thing is certain, LENR do occur and they occur by means of an induced process. Lets hope that one day this process will be explainable and comprehensive.

    Andrea,
    I hate to bother you with silly stuff, but my curiosity has led me in a lots of different directions. This, however, might be interesting to you and very well may give your enterprise a new purpose.

    I have been following solar activity for about 11 years now – just as a hobby. It is now beginning to appear that our sun may be heading into substantially less activity and subsequently we are very likely heading into much cooler times.

    I was introducing a friend to another of my interests (David LaPoint’s theory of primer fields) and stumbled upon some more information that has been added (Part #4) to his series of arguments:
    http://www.ice-age-ahead-iaa.ca/h264/Ice_Age_Startup_45.mp4

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    are you aware of the “Kilopower” project at NASA? They are realizing a very small scale (about 10-40Kw) fission reactor coupled to heat pipes and a stirling generator for producing electricity. It has many similarities to your technologies and/or it has potential synergies. Note that the thermal and conversion parts of that reactor are ready, and they are made of commercially available parts.
    Please check out the project site for more info:
    https://www.nasa.gov/directorates/spacetech/kilopower

  394. Andrea Rossi

    James:
    It is a mini nuclear reactor that uses uranium and plutonium.
    For obvious reasons, it is destined to be employed in Space or in planets like the moon or Mars…certainly not in populated areas. Can you imagine the probability to obtain the authorizations to disseminate our planet of mini-nuclear reactors working with Uranium 235 and Plutonium? The similarities with the E-Cat are zero. We do not use radioactive materials and do not generate radioactive materials.

  407. >> Some time ago you had mentioned that eventually Leonardo would become a publicly traded company.
    > Yes, it will happen

    I am wondering if it might be worth considering to make Leonardo a not-for-profit corporation. I have worked for a very large not-for-profit with many many patents and products. The advantage (as an employee) are that there are no stockholders to cause problems and instability. Also it appears that Leonardo is focused on science and discovery as much as it is on profit. It appears that Leonardo has done well so far without needing a huge influx of stockholder cash.

    Perhaps something to consider, perhaps not.

  408. Andrea Rossi

    Thomas Florek:
    Now Leonardo is projected toward a massive industralization and nobody would invest enough in a non profit company. So far we have been a boat, now we must become a carrier. At least, it is what we are thinking of.

    Dear Andrea.

    Could a 1MW plant be configured in such a way to supply say 100kW over 10 years or 50 kW over 20 years for example?

    I’m curious if it could be used in remote locations with a suitable external power supply over long durations.

    If it is also quite small and light this would potentially be quite useful in some applications.

    Best Regards

    Stephen

  418. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Yes, theoretically it is possible. In reality, it has to be done to be verified. We can say whatever we want, but at the end what will be real will be what will have been made and sold and it will be sold only if it will be economically convenient and environmentally sustainable. I am optimist, based on what I am seeing, but what count are facts, not words.

  432. Buck

    Good Day Andrea

    Your recent comments suggest a modularization of the QXs into several larger standard configurations: 1 QX @ 40W = singlet, 100 QXs @ 4kW = unit, 250 units @ 1MW = ?, 25 ? @ 25MW = ??

    Have you and your engineering team come to an understanding that there are rational sizes for the E-Cat product line from the customer perspective, ie, the marketing perspective?

    Best regards to you and your growing team

  434. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I understand that the QX is integrated with the controller(s), but theoretically if you consider both of these components at the same time for a moment, which of the two is more complex, the cluster of 100 QX modules or the cluster of 250 controllers that could each run 100 QX? (25,000 QX units)

    Great progress!
    Thank you for your updates.

    Tom

    ………….

    It would probably be more exciting to know that you are moving into perfecting the controller master-boxes at this point, and that the QX modules are “simply stable” at this point.

    Hopefully, you are not having issues with both the QX and the Controllers …

    As I wrote this, it occurs to me to wonder if you are writing the code for controllers in machine language instead of compiling a high level language into a much larger unit of logic. Machine language would run very much faster, and frequency control would be simplified… The physical management of larger code blocks would also be slightly more expensive to manufacture – unless done very professionally.

  435. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    The cluster of 100 QX is more complex.
    Thank you for the insight,
    Warm Regards

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I suppose that the 100 QXs inside the cluster are electrically connected in parallel. Is it right?

    Dear Andrea,

    In your answer to Frank Acland you mentioned that each 4 kW unit or “section” has its own control system. A heater of 1MW therefore consists of around 250 smaller “sections” with their own seperate control systems.
    Is this correct?
    I am a Little bit puzzled of the number of controllers?
    Could you comment, please.

    Warm regards and thank you for your important work,
    Mats Heijkenskjold

  439. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,

    1. From your recent comments, it seems that your large E-Cat QX plants will be made up of smaller “sections” of approximately 4kW — is this correct?
    2. Will each section be driven by one control sytem?
    3. Does this mean that one section could one day be used independently as a small domestic heating unit?
    4. Is there any limit to the number of sections that could be combined to make a heater of any rating (e.g. 1MW, 10MW, etc.)?

    Dear Andrea, With regards a possible cause of a LENR: To create a LENR I believe it requires a vacuum being a point of gravity, two unequal potentials with regards two dimensions of unequal mass plus specific mechanisms to create and control the desired effect. This process can be found active on various levels within nature from the macro to the micro. Electrical generating produces a vacuum on the atomic level (Two unequal potentials within one material separated by a resistance) Browns gas requires a vacuum on the molecular level (between two unequal potentials of mass). Solar illumination requires a vacuum but on the macro level. Unifying field oscillations require a vacuum on a mechanically induced level that generates two unequal mass potentials. All these reactions seem to produce a degree of energy that relates to a potential of a generated neutral structure containing a degree of of gravity. In the case of a manufactured induced system regarding air, the energies are that of manufactured helical trajectories containing gravity thereby providing an added state of solidity to an otherwise none solid state being air but which contains a degree of gravity that adds to an overall improvement of an effect.

    The LENR is thereby produced I believe by a necessary host being the nickel fissure/cavity. To strengthen the gravity value of the fissure, current is applied. Thereby, on each side of the fissure an unequal potential exists. Thereby two potentials of gravity from one within to one without and two potentials of charge on each side the fissure being one of a size potential and one of a volume potential. Then two unequal masses need to be introduced into the environment. Hydrogen no doubt being ideal with its proton mass of size and its electron mass of volume. Hydrogen having a weak bond can be easily stretched. Thereby the proton is gravitated into the fissure more so than the electron because of its dimensional discrepancy. Both the proton and electron contain gravity and rotate in the same direction due to there creator force being of the same environment. With an increase in the gap between the proton and electron a distinct event horizon appears that contains a gravity value providing for the manufacture of a rotating neutral, that rotates counter to that of the proton and electron so as to be in sync. The neutral contains a gravity value and a manufactured event horizon that contains charges that also have gravity values, dependent upon the strength of the manufactured neutral. Photons I believe are manufactured within the event horizon of a neutral and are dependent upon the intensity of the horizon.

    Every structure contains a binding force. Hydrogen very weak. Every structure contains a size positive charge structure and a volume negative charge structure, thereby two gravity values separated by an event horizon that contains the binding force. To create a reaction all that is required is a degree of displacement. The greater the force to displace, the more kinetic energy is generated and a more dynamic is the overall reaction. For now I shall take a break and return to explain kinetic energy with regards LENRs. Regards Eric Ashworth.

    Also, what will the power rating of the first product be?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  465. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    If it will be a 100 modules, the rating will be 4 kW, but we did not decide yet.It will depend on many factors.

    Dear Andrea,

    Here’s a comment from E-Cat World today by DocSiders. What do you think of it?

    “If the QX works, it will be disruptive on a scale never seen before. It will touch and effect everything…EVERYTHING. It could and should unseat the (illegitimatly) powerful and spread freedom and wealth to ALL. This will be a hard fought battle against entrenched powers. A slow and guarded entry into the fray makes no sense in this instance. It’s a revolution.

    “We are not talking about cautious expansion into existing markets with a “newish” product — where cautious business development would be prudent.

    “Sales could be in the $Billions per week for decades…so best to raise enough capital fast enough IN ORDER TO RAMP UP PRODUCTION FAST ENOUGH to bludgeon your way into dominance.”

    Best regards,

    Frank Acland

  467. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We will show the operation of the product. We have to decide the rating, but it will be probably at least a 100 modules Ecat.

    The 6 minutes summary of the Stockholm event is a precious cameo. Done by a master, for sure and it was past due for the mass that cannot watch the 3 hours complete video plus the 1 hour lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom. In these 6 min there is the essence of both.

    I suspect that building the Ecat home will basically be a downscaling of the industrial plant and once the Ecat home has been certified it will be manufactured in the same production lines. It is customary to select the “Man of the year”, however I nominate you as “The Man”!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KkYMPp4c68&feature=youtu.be

  488. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, The following information involves the design of a mechanism. The mechanism is a constructed metallic plasm able to demonstrate a geometric principle with regards energy interactions of curvature forces.

    Geometry of structure: We have all read of the event horizon but what do we know about it?. The event horizon is actually a neutral position sandwiched between a potential a size dimension and that of a volume dimension and therefore relates to a structure, dependent upon the structure and its location, the horizon will be distinct or vague. A dimension of size is positive when compared to a dimension of volume. Zero gravity of a structure is surrounded by the positivity of the structure. The event horizon is surrounded by the negativity of the volume of the structure. The event horizon is a variable attribute dependent upon the exterior influence of the environment with regards an exterior environmental gravity value and the point of zero gravity within, intensity of the horizon is thereby a variable due to a pull between two gravity values involving one structure of a size/volume dimension and the term event horizon could in some instances be a misnomer due too an unrecognizable event, hydrogen having such an unrecognizable event. This is important: Every object is spherical and contains a positive dimension, a negative dimension and a neutral dimension of a structure due to there being an event horizon. There has to be an event horizon to provide the necessary separation created by the two masses rotating in the same direction, of being in the same environment. This configuration can be diagrammed. Draw a square and connect each corner with a line through the middle which represents zero point. Put the compass point at zero and draw a circle just inside the four flats of the square. Each corner represents a 90 degree angle. The area outside of the circle/event horizon represents the volume mass negative of the structure and that within represents degrees of a size positive mass. As that circle moves within, negativity increases and so too does the positivity, it’s a variable ratio and the gravity fixes the ratio. However, when a circle rotates it does not do so in jerky 90 degree angles but by two smooth forces being an outward and an inward tangential but such a diagram is described is able to explain the concept.
    Thereby it can be seen that three symbols are required to explain a structure/energy unit of three potentials. These being a cube, being the square, a sphere being the circle/variable horizon and a pyramid, being a triangle, the apex of which represents zero gravity and the base of which is in contact with an outer environmental gravity value. Once this set-up is understood and projected into various situations it becomes apparent that structures on various levels can be created from the micro to the macro. To create structure thereby requires a structure, in my case being a mechanism requires a metallic plasm to provide the required dimensions which contain the potentials of a created gravity value. In LENRs I believe the nickel structure together with an applied current provides a controllable gravity value. No structure can be created within the zero point of gravity. It can only be created as a potential of a power within an event horizon. It therefore has to that of a centripetal force and being centripetal it contains its own gravity value. Any created structure that sits between two unequal forces/potentials such as two unequal mass potentials has to rotate, oscillate and pulsate to adjust its dimension to become that of a size dimension and that of a volume dimension in space and time so as to be a true neutral. Being between two rotating masses the neutral has to counter rotate to compliment spin.
    I shall now take a break and return to explain the possible cause of a LENR. Regards Eric Ashworth.

    Dear Andrea,

    To good to be true, perhaps? Many readers of JONP may have the impression that you have completed a working prototype that “has been assigned to the production team.” I am not so sure yet, and while you know I am all in with you and your team, I have not seen a clear statement from you that you have signed off on the prototype you described to David in the JONP blog on January 11, 2018.

    A) Have you already passed this prototype to your industrial team with the intent of building at least 100 – 1000 units using robotic manufacturing?

    or

    B) Will you soon be hoping to pass this design to your team with the intent of building at least 100 – 1000 units using the robotic manufacturing?

    I am hoping that you will reply “A” as the answer, but we have waited along time, and it is not stated clearly in the blog what you meant to say, “A” or “B”.

    Regardless of your reply, I am happy to hear that you have made progress, and that at least within a few months you may have the prototype ready.

    Thank you for keeping the line of communications wide open with us on JONP.

    Warm regards,

    Tom

  497. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:

    Dear Andrea, I shall share some of my thoughts with regards a unified structured field that is able to be demonstrated by a mechanism. I shall not elaborate on the mechanism it is complex but my findings could help explain LENRs. I shall use four sections to help explain over time. These sections will be dealt with separately. LENRs with regards structure – Geometry of structure – Possible cause of a LENR – Kinetic energy with regards LENRs.

    LENRs with regards structure: The LENR paradox I believe could be caused by a none understanding of how structure comes into being. Only recently have I come into contact with the term EOV (exotic vacuum object). My understanding and research has been with regards structure and thereby for me, the study of EVOs could be termed the study of structures of potential according to the vacuum. This understanding of mine is not that complicated and has been embodied into a mechanism but nevertheless it requires a degree of consideration and thought because it is novel. The mechanism is able to demonstrate the static and mobile mechanics of energy interaction. The mechanism itself has a mobile aspect and a static aspect that compliments to achieve a static and mobile unified field of a two part structure from a fluid which in this instance is air. Nature I believe has a basic law with regards to achieving a structure and depending upon the vacuum which is created by a source of power/current, not potential, the structure will exhibit a quality reflected in its potential to exist over a specific duration. I shall not go into the mechanism but say it involves understanding interactions as geometric volumes and sizes within a pre existent structure which provides the power field containing an inner point of zero gravity surrounded by an outer region of spacial gravity between which two necessary unequal potentials (hydrogen of which) form a structure that contains an event horizon which represents the separation between the positive and negative mss of the structure, these being the potentials that respond to the power. Thereby an inner zero gravity with regards nickel an outer spacial gravity and a variable centripetal point of gravity between two unequal mass potentials being the proton/electron of the hydrogen (the mechanism generates two unique corpuscles of a a flow representative of). This centripetal point of gravity is of a variable dependent upon its location which depends upon the strength of the zero point of gravity induced by a current and thereby the neutral structure able to be formed within the centripetal position is also of a variable with regards its point of zero gravity. Being between two unequals proton/electron the neutral responds in various ways and it too has its event horizon. Motion of a neutral: Rotates around its zero point of gravity, vibrates in time and space, pulsates in accordance to position. These three actions are required to compliment the two alternative pro generative states of its being. The proton and electron mass of the hydrogen rotate in the same direction being of the same environment, thereby the neutral has to counter rotate being a hybrid of the two established states. I shall take a break and return to help explain the geometry of structure. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea,

    1. Does the “prototype to be industrialized” include both the E-Cat QX and the controller?

    2. Does this mean you have solved the controller overheating problems?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  504. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    To make an Ecat QX. The robots are already there, it’s just matter to adjust the specific software, but there are strong analogies with applications in the electronic and pharmaceutical fields.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  505. Dr. Mike

    Andrea,
    Congratulations on achieving an improved controller design so quickly. I have a few questions about the new controller and the QX devices:
    1. What is the most QX devices that you have actually operated at one time with the new controller?
    2. What is the input power to the new controller when it was driving that number of QX devices from (1)?
    3. Has the final design and specifications for the QX device been established?
    4. How many QX devices have been manufactured (by hand) that were made to the exact specifications of the three QX devices that were used in the demonstration?

    Thank you for your time in answering these questions.
    Dr. Mike

  506. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Mike:
    1- 100
    2- the same as when driving one module; its consume is recovered with COP 0.9 as heat, so that it does not affect the COP of the Ecat QX and the heat it produces can also be employed for uses different from the energy produced by the Ecat QX. By the way, the COP of the Ecat QX ( ratio between the energy at the output of the QX and the energy at the input of the QX ) is substantially higher.
    3- in the evolution of a technology nothing is final. I can answer that as it is now the Ecat QX, I think we are ready to pass to the industrialization phase. As a matter of fact, we will make a strong pressing on the industrialization phase now.
    4- several hundreds, but the term “exact” is quite optimistic: better couple it with “almost” to make it closer to reality, not only because I make many errors, but also because I am prone to make trials also when I have to replicate. This is also the reason for which we made substantial progress in these last 60 days.
    Thank you for your attention to our work,

    The big guys in energy know who you are. ABB can build you the best production line, but keep a close eye on them, and you will beat all the big guys.

    Automation and QX are the keys. The big guys are watching us as well. We are world wide and have been #1 on Amazon for 5 years.

    When you are ready, we would love to see how we can incorporate your E-Cats in our production and advertising.

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m trying to get a clearer understanding of your plans for the commercialization E-Cat.

    1. Will the presentation of the first E-Cat QX product be made at the time you announce the launch of the E-Cat QX?

    2. Where will the presentation take place?

    3. Will the presentation take place after the planned robotized lines have started operating?

    4. Where will the first robotized lines be operating?

    5. Once you announce the launch and make the presentation, will industrial products be available immediately to buy and use, or will customers have to pre-order them and wait for them to be built?

    6. Will the robotized lines be making only the insides of the plants (i.e. E-Cats and controllers), or fully functioning completed plants ready to use?

    7. Do you plan for expansion of manufacturing following the product presentation?

    8. Do you think it is realistic to expect for this to all begin in 2018?

    Thank you for your responses,

    Frank Acland

The PNZ6r sample is a re-oxidized sample of PNZ6 after finishing a series of D(H) gas charging/calorificationexperimental runs at RT and ET with repeated sample baking. The PNZ6 and PNZ6r samples contain Pd and Ni with atomic ratio of Pd/Ni = 1/10, while the PNZ7k sample contains them with Pd/Ni = 1/7. About 100 gram of the sample containing about 20 gram of Ni was used in each case.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Still about the replications inspired from your work:
    Interim Report for the H28 fiscal year of H-27-29 program
    R&D Subjective: Leading Program for Energy and Environment
    Sub-theme: Analysis and control of new thermal energy by metal-hydrogen
    interaction
    Reporters: The 6 parties of teams from Technova Inc., Nissan Motors Co, Kyushu University,
    Tohoku University, Nagoya University and Kobe University
    To re-confirm and obtain basic data on the previously claimed anomalously high-energydensity
    heat release effect (AHE) by the interaction of hydrogen gas and Ni-based nanometal
    composite samples, the following program was implemented by the 6 parties for the
    H28(2016 Oct to 2017 March) period. The target to obtain thermal energy density more than
    2 MJ/mol-H has been cleared with much enhanced energy density (ca. 200 MJ/mol-D for
    instance), by collaboration studies for CNS (Cu-Ni/ silica), CNZ(Cu-Ni/zirconia) and PNZ
    (Pd-Ni/zirconia) series samples at 200-300 degree C operation temperatures.
    1) New experimental calorimetry system (new MHE facility) for metal hydrogen-gas
    interaction was installed in June H28 in Tohoku University, and the initial running tests in
    July and implemented the first experiment with PNZ-type sample to observe and confirm
    the previously claimed Technova-Kobe results of AHE, with less than 1.5% error in
    calorimetry. The new experimental system was totally established in August 2016 (H28).
    Collaboration study by the 6 parties was implemented with 10 test experiments in the
    H28 period, using the MHE facilities at Kobe University and Tohoku University, for
    metal nano-composite samples which were fabricated by the meltspinning/oxidation
    technique to have provided PNZ-type and CNZ-type samples.
    PS-type (Pd /silica) and CNS-type samples provided by the wet technique at
    Kyushu University, Nagoya University and Kobe University were also tested. AHE
    phenomena were observed in most experiments except for using PS-type samples.
    Observed AHE data showed ca. 5-200 MJ/mol-H(or D for PNZ-type) level high
    thermal energy density for several days sustaining power (ca.4-20 W level) .
    Material analyses by XRD, SEM and STEM/EDS for every sample before and after the hydrogencharge
    run have been done by the 6 parties. Interesting nano-structure data have been obtained
    in the view of controlling the sustainable AHE phenomena of nano-composite metal and
    hydrogen gas interaction.

    Dear Andrea,
    In terms of Design Models, here’s a “thought experiment” (in other words, it may not be literally possible, but it might lead to alternative physical design approaches):

    Analogous to the design of a nuclear reactor, if small pellet-like “quark assemblies” could be stacked vertically inside a cylindrical casing (like nuclear fuel pellets in a fuel rod) (you’d also need some sort of “power rail system” inside the rod casing), then those cylinders assembled into bundles & those bundles immersed in the heat-transfer fluid, you’d have a physically dense structure with some of the positives of nuclear reactor designs (e.g., reduced likelihood of coolant leaks, plenty of heat-transfer surface area…) and without the massive negatives of radiation and shielding.

    If such an approach were possible, I would think the Quark-pellets, Quark-Rods & Quark-Bundles would all lend themselves to robotic assembly.

    A big downside of such an approach (that I can’t figure a way around) is it’s hard to replace a Quark-pellet, Quark-Rod or Quark-Bundle without shutting down and depressurizing the entire system (or sub-portion of a system).

    Anyway, no questions from me today, just wild & crazy thought experiments. 😉

    Have a fun day,
    WaltC

  547. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Can you explain what you mean by a module? Are you expecting industrial customers to buy modules and turn them into completed industrial or even consumer products?

    For example currently one company might make gas burners and another builds them into water heaters/furnaces.

    Is that the business model you are planning?

  548. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    Also.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  549. LarryJ

    Dear Dr Rossi

    Before the Stockholm demo you were on record as saying that your plan was to sell heat. This made great sense to me for several reasons.

    1. It would allow an earlier entry into the market since any reliability problems would only be known by Leonardo Corp. and could be dealt with privately. Reliability would not be an issue for the customer with a grid power backup.

    2. It would prevent your technology from being reverse engineered until you were firmly established.

    3. It would deny your competitors and enemies a rallying point to hinder your development since there would be no absolute proof your technology was real. Skeptics would claim you were just selling grid power at a loss.

    4. The major disadvantage would be a large initial capital cost to build the reactors.

    My question is are you still planning to only sell heat or will you only sell reactors or will you sell both. If you sell both will you sell heat first, then reactors.

    Thank you for your kind attention to my question and I eagerly await the massive industrialization of your technology and wish you every success with it.

    LarryJ

    LarryJ:
    We will make both.

    Dear Andrea
    Few questions:
    1 How many modules of the Ecat QX do you have now?
    2 How many of them can be operated by a single controller?
    3 Ratio good vs not good?
    4 Are you getting rest or is this not in your nature?
    Suggestion: eat more salads and less carbohydrates: your health is important.
    Kind regards,

  554. Andrea Rossi

    Mike Robinson:
    1 in this period we are working on prototypes to prepare the industrialization of the Ecat QX
    2 up to 100
    3 premature to make a statistic, for which at least thousands have to be made
    4 of course yes!

  561. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    You mentioned using a design like the 1 MW artist’s model on the http://www.ecat.com website– At the 10,000 foot level, I like the model. However, at the detailed level, it seems as if there are too many flexible pipes and connectors– each one of which could be a potential source of failure and a headache to repair.

    For an industrial environment, robotic manufacturability, high pressure & temperature, long lifetimes, long MTBF (“Meantime Between Failures”) and short “Time to Repair”, I would expect to see something like the engine of a car (or a truck)– lots of metal, manifolds, and bolt-on interconnections– especially in the path of the steam/hot water.

    Tell me: I’m reading too much into the fine details of the artist’s rendition, aren’t I?

  562. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    Thank you for your insight and suggestion. You are not reading too much and I appreciate your goodwill to help.
    Warm Regards,

    Have you determined a location for your US robotic manufacturing facility? I.E. (City and State) Elon Musk was able to obtain significant financial advantage by the location of his battery manufacturing plant in Nevada. I would suppose that you could do the same by site selection. I’m not a fan of corporate welfare, but why not use all legal means available to determine an optimal location for this manufacturing enterprise to provide maximum financial returns to Leonardo. I’m sure President Trump will welcome your domestic manufacturing facility to provide more jobs to make America great again.

  570. Mario Marini

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Prof Suffritti et Al. of the University of Sassari (Italy) have published on Science Direct (November 2017) the paper “Reverse Mossbauer Effect as a possible source of ‘hot’ protons in hydrogen absorbing metals”, which substantially confirms your intuition about the reverse Mossbauer effect published in 2015 in the paper Cook-Rossi. What is disturbing is that he copies your intuition without citing your paper in references and in the text, along with the Lugano report, from which his paper is clearly inspired. The authors generically say in the introduction of their article that there is some experiment around related to the Mossbauer effect, as if it is some kind of a common knowledge, while the sole paper that has introduced this idea is the Cook-Rossi publication on Arxive. Did you read this paper?
    Have you any comment about it?

    Good morning Andrea,

    I peeked at your website again this morning, and I like one of the models shown a little more than the others, this is the image I liked best:

    https://113452-323143-raikfcquaxqncofqfm.stackpathdns.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Heating-System-e1512736404253.jpg

    Quick question for you.

    Your industrial certification requires a “core” model that produces 10kw, is that still your requirement for the basic module of the Quark? (using an assembly of course.)

    (and one more please)

    When do you hope to have your first prototype from the robots to duty test, 6 months, 3 months, 1 month, sooner?

    Thank you for your open communication channel on JONP.

    Keep up the great work!

    Tom

  575. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    We are not bound on a specific “core power” for the certification, we have to certify a module and its assembly systems.
    I hope we will have our first sprout from the robots within 2018 year ( attention: NOT 2018 years !!! )
    Thank you for your permanent attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- USA and Sweden
    3- yes
    4- USA and Sweden
    5- The launch will be made when the product will be ready to buy and use
    6- it depends on the kind of applications
    7- yes
    8- I dream of it and it is not impossible, albeit it will be very hard. But I am optimistic ( actually I always am and many times I am wrong ) after the developments we made from the Stockholm event up to now: I can assure you we have not spent this timeframe combing the puppets of my friend Thomas Florek.

    I spam only the comments sent by the trolls. Luckily they are very few, for sure less that the 0.2% of the comments we publish. This blog has published more than forty thousand comments, the trollades have been several tens. When I say trolls, I mean persons that ignore what we say and do and continue to repeat the same stupidities, sometime disguised as friends with false appreciation or sustain. Kind of false violin players. We simply ignore them and, obviously, spam their comments, as well as their emails.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    The number of different industrial applications for your reactor is vast. I would suggest you can’t hope to meet world demand even with 1000 automated factories. So even if you have a cost advantage by being first to market by a few years many customers will happily pay for more expensive third party copies because you won’t be able to meet demand. Sorry but I think you are taking the wrong approach.

  595. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    It depends on how our approach will be realized. Thank you for your insight, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  596. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    As regards your desire to have a commercial home unit available in 2019 after the necessary certification, will there be a need to field test pre-production models prior to receiving certification?

    Will different locals be required such as desert, tropical, and winter zones? Do you anticipate needing volunteers to provide testing locations and monitoring the certification test results?

    Best of luck with industrialization in 2018.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    You say the theory you are working on is audacious and could be wrong. Is it coherent with the Standard Model?

  599. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    Yes, we start from the fact, coherent with the Standard Model, that when in a field is reached a temperature equal to the mass of an elementary particle of that field, waves are formed corresponding to those particles. The fact that such particles are not observable can be explained with the fact that these particles are virtual, just resonances, probably with a lifespan around 10^-23s.

  601. Andrea Rossi

    Dawn:
    No, this sector of R&D is very “green”. We have been able to measure electricity produced by the Ecat QX, but we are very far from being able to make it in continuous, efficient and utilizable way.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  602. Richard

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    When the Ecat production will be industrialized, the production will have to be immediately distributed: are you already organizing a distribution and sales circuit?

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When will be able to read the results of the theoretical experiments you are making with Gullstrom?

  611. Andrea Rossi

    Joseph:
    It will take time. Probably our idea is wrong, but we will try all to find it out, positive or negative as the results of the experiment might be. The theory we are trying to give evidence of is very audacious.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  612. Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I saw the list of tools for your theoretical R&D with Gullstrom: be careful, Neodymium, which I know for my job, is very fragile and above 70 Celsius ita magnetic properties are compromised.
    Cheers,
    Johan

  613. Andrea Rossi

    Johan:
    You are right, we know the problem. It is for this reason that we use thermometers and thermostats.About the fragility, there is not reason to hurt or make abrasive actions on neodymium during our experiment.

    I watched three times the 3 hours video of the Stockholm demo: with exception of the defaillance of the spectrometry, that can be justified if we consider that you never experienced before a spectrometry in a room illuminated by a big screen, the test has been very convincing. My opinion is that we really will see in the market your industrial plants made by means of an industrialized manufacturing process.

    I’m glad you and Oscar are pursuing the theory behind the E-Cat QX . I see it as the last piece in the puzzlle in the story of the development of the E-cat QX after its invention. It’s development and production and industrialization. Although I think the pursuit of industrialization should not be hindered As the device is ready. .In away ithink the theory the last piece that finally makes the story complete.

    It’s intriguing your approach in the testing of the theory. I’m looking forward to it. I wonder if in this he end it will give us a window on what underlies the standard model.

    I’m sure many have considered the following thoughts but the rules of 3 In fundamental physics have always intrigued me 3 leptons 3 neutrinos 3 pairs of quarks along with the 3 spatial dimension in space. I wonder if locality and the fundemental nature of particles their axis and spin dimensionally, their isospin in their creation in a “local frame of reference” and how this resonates interacts and propagates with an external frame of reference of space time. Could there be a geometric interpretation of the particles in the standard model in a local frame of reference with orthogonal axis in that frame bosons being associated changes in geometric expression. If your approach works and can be applied more generally I wonder what it shows and can give a window on this or what really underlies the standard model and all the expression of states it contains. Well a bit philosophical I guess but your approach does stimulate the thinking.

    Good luck with this and your much more thorough and vigorous theoretical and experimental approach than my speculations..

    I’m looking forward to see what comes up.

    Cheers

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Again congratulations for the well done demo of Stockholm.
    About the experiment you are preparing with Gullstrom: will it be useful also for your intuition regarding the virtual particles arising from the T of the plasma?
    Cheers

  623. Andrea Rossi

    Christian:
    We will work on the concept that when the temperature reaches the mass of a particle, in the field of that particle are formed waves corresponding to that particle and the corresponding anti-particles.

  635. Marco Comerci

    Dear Andrea,

    First of all, Happy new year.

    Regarding electricity production. I don’t know which method or modifications are needed to extract current from the Ecat, and probabily you can’t confirm or deny if what i am going to suggest is similar to your method, but here my thoughts: a third electrode, near the plasma or, if the plasma is not too hot/dense, a grid like the old vacuum tubes that gather electrons from the plasma. With an electrode near or in the plasma, a tension should be produced between that electrode and at least one of the other two. The only thing is to see if the tension is high enough to extract useful energy, because the tension between the two main electrodes is supposedly very low.

    Regards,
    Marco.

  636. Andrea Rossi

    Marco Comerci:
    Correct.
    Warm Regards,

  639. Drew G.

    Dr. Rossi:

    Three questions concerning the industrialization of the ECAT QX:

    1. Have you frozen the design for the final version of the ECAT QX to be manufactured on your robotic assembly lines?

    2. Have you identified the industrial suppliers of all materials and components needed to assemble the ECAT QX on the robotic manufacturing line?

    3. Do you have a new design of the controller using low power miniaturized components and circuitry?

    All of the above items must be in place if 2018 is to be the year for product introduction.

    Happy new year and a very successful 2018!

  649. Hello Andrea,

    On November 24 you showed us a beautiful work of art. Or perhaps it was more like “The Concert” where a grand symphony was played. The quarkX is a masterpiece, and it seems now to be completed and elegant. The power-source is like a pedestal that needs to be created for a great sculpture (or a frame for a completed painting).

    In 2011, people were dismissing your work. I wonder if any of those people managed to learn as much as you have learned, or create anything as ambitious as what you have accomplished in this time-frame.

    All based on an intuition you had in an Italian prison.

    I wonder if people celebrating and accepting your work will provide more challenges for you than people dismissing it. Each artist eventually lets their masterpiece go out into the world on its own.

    During this New Year time, I wish you much joy and comfort, and great excitement and good things for 2018.

    We look forward to further implementation and advancement of your work and also the work of people all over the world who have been inspired by your artistry to make great things for the world.

  650. Andrea Rossi

    Thomas Florek:
    If I reached what I reached the merit is also of persons like you, that gave us the energy of their enthusiasm and the force of their sustain.
    I am optimistic about the fact that in 2018 we will reach the massive industrialization phase. In these 2 months after the demo at the IVA of Stockholm we have added much progress to the Ecat QX in the direction of its industrialization.
    Let’s stay in touch.
    We will succeed together and, as I said during the event of Stockholm, if things will go badly I will be the sole person responsible, being the director, but if things will go well, the merit will be of all of you and of my Team and Partners. As it happens in a battlefield ( what we are doing is a veritable battle ) the commander is the person responsible of a defeat, but if he wins, the merit is mainly of his Army, without which nothing could have been done.
    P.S.
    Can you make a gift for all of us? Can you send here a comment with all the links of your puppets you made in these years? He,he,he…

    Frank Acland

    Frank Acland:
    The theoretical work is not stealing time from the efforts finalized to the massive industrialization, because I am working on it with Carl Oscar Gullstrom, who is not engaged in the technological development. The laboratory for the theoretical research is independent from the industrial development, even if its results will affect, if any, the industrial production.

  658. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,
    Last week you wrote that you are 100% busy with preparations for mass production.

    And now you seem to be hunting again for direct electricity production? Is not that something for a large research center where they have all that equipment and analysis material at their disposal?

    Regards,
    Koen

  659. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Direct production of electricity remains one of our goals, but now it is not a priority. Our priority now is to industrialize the Ecat we already have.
    At the same time, our R&D is focused on the theoretical research, that goes on in parallel with the strong efforts to reach a massive industrialization.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  660. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Eric Ashworth,
    Thank you for your feedback.

    I think the historical denial of LENR is primarily a “political choice”. Sometimes even driven by fear of the blamage not to have invented it as respected scientists. Curious thinkers usually see the opportunity of a new discovery or invention in an inexplicable phenomenon.

    The way to present things easily and visually comprehensively is useful to as many people as possible, including politicians, financial decision-makers, industrialists, who probably all have not studied nuclear physics. Not the theoretical knowledge of the nuclear physicists but the insights of the world’s policymakers will have a final impact on the future of the world.

    The primary school teacher has millions of times more influence on the minds and insights of humanity than most scientific publications.

    We are going to make dipole and quadrupole measurements of currents deflections.
    For the H/Li ion current we need a magnetic field of circa 0.1 T
    To achieve a measurable electromagnetic field we will sorround the plasma with a quadrupole magnet with an angle of 67 degrees with the oscillating the field between 695 and 710 MHz and then measure if an opposite magnetic dipole field gets induced on the z- axis of the quadrupole.
    The numbers come from cos30 degrees times hyperfine splitting of 7L1 S2 level and cos60 degrees times the H 1420 MHz line, combined with the spin-speed tilt of the assumed spin of the positive ions and the spin tilt interaction due to the 3 quark structure of the nucleon and the Sigma meson.
    From an experimental point of view it will be also good to measure a variety of quadrupole field parameters, both for static and dynamic QM ( quadrupole measurements ), wherein dynamic means adjustable electromagnets around the E-Cat QX to generate a field and static means neodym magnets.
    Basic instrumentation:
    Oscilloscope
    IR thermometers
    Thermostats
    Adjustable frame able to allow assembly modifications

  674. Eric Ashworth

    @Koen Vandewalle Dec 29th.
    I agree building physical models is a good way to gain insight. The difference being models prove whereas theory speculates. So which is most important?. All theories are nothing other than ideas, concepts of the imagination on the plane of mind, so to prove the concept we embody it into the physical world and if it performs then the concept was correct but the question could be asked, where did the idea come from?. If it came out of a book then it cannot be an idea, so the only other place from where an idea can originate is by means of the intuition which is directly related to a persons acumen and it is this quality which is responsible for creating a debate even when a model is presented. So it seems that where there is no theory, a model that demonstrates a principle is able to be rejected but a theory without a concrete model is able to be accepted. Seems to me that specific intuitive truisms are denied. LENRs being one such truism. Therefore because of this apparent anomaly of the system, within physics, I can now see why Andrea is keen to also acquire an accepted theory. I will continue to share some of my own thoughts from time to time which I hope could help in some way.
    Regards Eric Ashworth

  675. Vince

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Can you explain the experiment you are preparing with Carl-Oscar Gullstrom to work on the theoretical bases of the Rossi effect?
    Vince

  676. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Friends,

    When we look at the texts and formulas of theoretical scientific papers and try to read them, many people like myself have to admit that we usually do not understand much of it.

    However, our brains are perfectly capable of dealing with complex models, provided they have the necessary training. Just think of a good football player who can kick the ball into a corner of the goal from a random place on the field. Think of surfers who can continue to surf in the ocean under a tilting wave.
    However, these people are not necessarily the best students when it comes to mathematical models and formulas.

    To gain better insight into some processes, visual support with a graphic computer model is a good tool because it helps support our intuitive talents.

    If there are enormous variables in the processes, and if small micro-level variations cause large variations at the macro level in the long term, computer models can not always satisfy. SpaceX can let a rocket land vertically on a platform, using measurement techniques and permanent corrective steering techniques, but they can not throw a glass marble on the landing spot from space.

    That is why building physical experiments is a good solution to improve insight, allowing us to intuitively develop new systems or applications where it is far too difficult to make theoretical, mathematical or computer models. Real physical experiments take into account billions of interactions, large and small, fast and slow, where no mathematical, simplified but perfect formula will ever be able to describe the actual physical processes.

    On the link to a video from the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, very interesting experiments can be seen.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WffR6HrEqTA

    The experiment “the spike” shows that with very limited potential energy: a few dozen centimeters of water pressure, but using specific waves in a confined volume, can create enormous explosions of kinetic energy.
    Only the fields of gravity, viscosity, mass density and an amount of added kinetic energy apply here.

    Only a small amount of imagination is needed to realize that in nanostructures, such as the nickel powder that Andrea Rossi used in his first experiments, there are also many waves that can concentrate energy. In larger structures, such as metal plates and wires, you get less of those special waveforms, and the waves are more random as in an oceans.

    When I want to tell someone about Andrea Rossi’s work in an enthusiastic mood, I explain what happens in this video first, and then I suggest adding a few boxes of chicken eggs and goose eggs to that experiment. Everyone can imagine that eggs are regularly beaten hard against each other, and that even eggs are catapulted to the ceiling of the building.
    A little the same effect as what happens in a particle accelerator in a more controlled way. The same reactions as in the sun, but then one by one.

    For most people, this is sufficient to never doubt the functioning of LENR again.

    The fact that many more fields are involved, such as electric fields, magnetism, mass, but also strong and weak nuclear forces that are then directionally sensitive, makes it plausible that it is very difficult to understand these processes, to control them, stimulate them and optimize them.

    It is by analogy, very difficult to make the eggs to be in the right place when a peak wave passes to shoot them away. An excess of eggs makes that it is no longer possible to make the right waves.

    For our friends here on this forum, this is a fun and comprehensible analogy to tell at the table during the many New Year receptions that we will soon be able to experience again.
    Where the tenor is rather negatively charged in many aspects of the world, this year we get the chance to announce that Andrea Rossi will bring these real solutions to the market massively in 2018, and that from now on there is hope that we will have an abundance of cheap and environmentally friendly energy to help us solve all major physical world problems.

    Best wishes for 2018 !

  678. Dear Andrea,
    If by waves and antiwaves you mean phonons, remember that phonon is an uncharged boson so it’s equal to its own antiparticle and when two such waves meet, nothing happens i.e. there is no annihilation. Similarly to photons.
    regards, /pekka

  679. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    I agree.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  680. Dear Andrea,
    My generic comments regarding theories:

    One needs some high energy quanta because one needs something that can absorb the energy released by a nuclear state change as quickly as it happens. In other words, one needs something that absorb the high instantaneous “power” that the nucleus produces when it undergoes a reaction. And those high-energy quanta must couple to low-energy chemical degrees of freedom so that they can release their energy gradually. I don’t think that the nucleus itself can be lured to releasing its energy slowly because there is no way it could store the energy temporarily. So one needs something else that can do the mediating trick.

    In other words, one needs something that couples to the MeV scale nuclear degrees of freedom, and at the same time couple with eV-scale chemical degrees of freedom.

    I have speculated that the object that fulfils these criteria might be plasma oscillations of an effectively massless fermion (electron pseudoparticle) population that for some reason exists in the material. Massless, because then the plasma frequency is in principle infinite so that the medium couples strongly to electromagnetic waves of all frequencies, including gammas.

    Such proposition is difficult, but other propositions seem impossible to me at the moment. There are no high-energy particles in the material, so the necessary coupler modes cannot be any material particles. So the only possibility, as far as I can see, are collective oscillations, such as plasmons i.e. plasma oscillations.

    Needless to say, one needs observational data of isotopes, i.e. data on which reactions actually happen. Then things would start to clear out.

    regards, /pekka

  681. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Interesting insight. Remains the fact that around 2900 K we could raise virtual waves and antiwaves of that mass. I dare to imagine this is the primordial source of heat, whatever happens eventually. We are preparing experiments to track the “fossils”.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Nowadays in Belgium (and I guess also in whole Europe and probably also in the US), as many of our big nuclear power plants are old and (normally) have to be replaced in the near future, we have very important discussions about the strategy we have to follow in the near future. In Belgium there are many voices to get rid of our nuclear power plants, and to use as much as possible (variable) renewable energy sources (wind and solar), in combination with gas powered plants to take over when there’s no wind nor sun. But replacing our big old nuclear power plants like that, and because the (variable!) renewable sources are limited to a certain percentage of the total energy need, gas powered plants will have to take over a lot of the electrical power production, and so CO2 emission will increase. This is only acceptable if your technology can take over very soon. Therefore these questions:

    i) Will it be possible to replace the steam production of the steam generators of present gas powered plants (lets say production units of 100MW; 250MW up to 500MW), with your technology, by placing many 1MW-containers in parallel, and so producing the same amount of steam to the existing turbines and alternators, so that the mechanical and electrical installations of present and future gas powered plants can remain the same?

    ii) Could there be problems if too many 1MW units have to work well in parallel? (For instance steam flowing from one 1MW unit to another in the wrong direction because of pressure differences? Probably can be avoided by installing minimum pressure valves in the outlet steam circuit in your 1MW units?).

    iii) I guess you would prefer smaller production units, but i) and ii) is necessary to replace the thermal installation of present power plants.

    iv) Your technology is ideal for delivering the base load (= constant thermal energy production), but is it also possible to modulate, so it can co-operate with variable renewable power sources or a variable consumption of (electrical or thermal) energy?

    v), vi) en vii), same questions as i), ii) and iii) but for – even bigger (up to 1000MWatt and more) – nuclear power plants. (Here the equivalent of question iv) is not necessary, because they only deliver base load = constant electrical energy production which means also constant thermal energy production).

    General Remark: Considering the necessary replacement of old nuclear power plants, we need your technology as soon as possible. I hope you will be able to mass produce in 2019? 😉

    Thanks in advance to answer these questions. I hope you understand the urgency, because I think this is a problem in whole Europe and probably in the USA as well?

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Yesterday in Milan, Italy, I was in a cinema to see a movie (Dickens) and during the commercials I saw a spot of ENI, wherein they informed that they are realizing a technology to make fuels from organic wastes: they say “fuels from apple peels”. Practically, they are copying your patent of 1978, without giving you merit of it. Your comment?
    Happy new year,
    Mario

  712. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your focus on that so important part of the Carl-Oscar Gullstrom lecture from the Stockholm event. Those apparently superficial statements about virtual particles arising as resonances at the temperature of the plasma could be a revolution.
    S.

  716. Dear Andrea,
    Space applications get mentioned every now and then. Here is my subjective opinion:

    1) Launch vehicles: would be need, but difficult to apply E-cat because would need enormous power density.
    2) Spacecraft around Earth, Moon, Mars, Venus: not much need for E-cat because solar panels do their job well (100 W/kg whole power system).
    3) Moon landers: strong need (2 weeks long night).
    4) Mars landers: rather strong need (night, winter, dust).
    5) Venus landers: no need for E-cat.
    6) Asteroids, scientific and commercial: moderate need (sun rather far away, shadow side exists).
    7) Probes to outer solar system: strong need because solar panels do not work.

    For 3, 7, 4 and 6, the QX seems better suited than the old E-cat because has high COP and is small scale.

  718. Harvey

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I have been following your development of the Rossi Effect for the past 5 years and I am very encouraged and excited from the results of your recent demonstration of the QuarkX in Stockholm. I fully understand that you are intensely focused on mass production of the industrial systems for heat production. Although I’m now retired and not formally educated in the sciences, I have an intense interest in leading edge technologies, so please excuse me if this is an inappropriate question at this time:

    I’ve recently read that NASA is considering launching a probe to Alpha Centauri by 2069 and are thinking about using ground based laser arrays with a large sail to propel the probe, which, although may be technically possible, seems to me to be very inefficient and expensive. They estimate this trip would take approximately 44 years. Do you feel that your QuarkX or its future generations might be capable of providing the propulsion and/or systems energy for such a probe?

    Thank you for your consideration and your dedication toward advancing our understanding about the workings of our universe.

    Dear Andrea.
    A 60 W incandescent bulb with a tungsten filament diam. of 0,046 mm a length of 580 mm, have a tungsten volume of less than 1 mm^3. The volume of QX giving 60 W is 3 mm^3.
    The power density of the bulb filament is then more than 3 times of the QX, which is common.
    The difference is that QX is an energy source not energy consuming. The heat production in a year of the QX is about the same as from 50 liters of common fuel. The theoretical energy density by volume of QX is then 16 x 10^6 of fuel. In practice the rod of QX may need a space for heat transfer and support. If a space of 160 times the volume of the QX-rod is sufficient, the volume energy density of the QX-reactor, may be 100 000 times of common fuel measured by the reactors lifetime. By weight it may be the same.
    The volume of a reactor producing heat of 100 kWh/h may then be as small as only 500 cm^3, if my calculations are correct. The construction of such compact heat exchangers may be a challenge.
    The electronic controllers may need the same or more space. The change of reactors, when needed, may not be more difficult than changing a light bulb or a fuel filter.
    (The atom bomb dropped at Hiroshima converted only 0,7 g mass to energy.)

  728. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Just a thought. In your search for the theory and a formulae relating to the LENR process would you think that an increasing impedance caused by a restriction of mobility could in some way have a direct relation to the release of a quantity of energy. The equation E=Mc2 is accepted and well established being true. But what is mass, is it a tiny compressed volume or an expanded tiny mass into volume?. Time could therefore become a relevant factor. If the LENR process does involve a dual activity this could in theory render a one formulae explanation almost impossible. Maybe, two theories using both maths and geometry which brings in mechanics could solve a paradox but then and I don’t know whether two theories would be allowed to explain a single phenomena in physics. All the best, Regards Eric Ashworth

  729. Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth:
    Mass has sense if it is referred to a body. The mass of a body is the measure of its inertia, in other words of its resistance to any variation of motion. Obviously the motion can be limited by other bodies if they are close enough. Volume is the measurement of the space occupied by a body. Time is a distance between events, therefore it has sense only if referred to the space in which events occur.
    The equation of Einstein involves space, time, mass, energy.
    Geometry is the measurement of all that concerns the forms of bodies and, being a measurement, it is necessarily bound to Mathematics, without which it couldn’t have any sense, therefore a geometric formula is intrinsecally a mathematical formula.

    A.R.

    Can you tell us how much energy 1 g of the E-Cat QX charge could be turned in?

  735. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    By the Einstein equation, theoretically 1 g of matter could be turned into 25 x 10^6 kWh, therefore every 1 mg of matter could be turned into 25 x 10^3 kWh of energy. Obviously, only one fraction of this conversion is possible.

    Dear Andrea,

    2017 has been an incredible year in the story of the e-cat. Look where we were this time last year and where we are now with the beautiful engineering behind the E-Cat QX. It’s an amazing story this and it’s developing fast.

    I have the feeling now things have got to the next level of industrialization for most of us out side it’s going to take some degee of patience but behind the scenes the work will be going on as much as before if not even harder.

    I was so happy that we were able to see some of the capabilities of the E-CatQX in video presentations of the demonstration in November. What a way to end this incredible year.

    I’m personally really looking forward to the days we can clearly understand the science and physics behind this amazing phenomenon. Which will come in the not to distant future I think. Maybe in 2018.

    All the best for Christmas and the new year season to you and all the ecat team.

    Luke 2:6-14

    6 While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her son, the firstborn, and she wrapped him in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the lodging place.8 There were also in the same region shepherds living out of doors and keeping watch in the night over their flocks. 9 Suddenly Jehovah’s angel stood before them, and Jehovah’s glory gleamed around them, and they became very fearful. 10 But the angel said to them: “Do not be afraid, for look! I am declaring to you good news of a great joy that all the people will have. 11 For today there was born to you in David’s city a savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this is a sign for you: You will find an infant wrapped in strips of cloth and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying: 14 “Glory in the heights above to God, and on earth peace among men of goodwill.”

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I assume that you and your team are working on developing an initial production prototype of an Industrial Product that will be based on a configuration of multiple Quark X modules and an integrated heat-exchanger assembly. If it would be possible, could you indicate whether the Industrial Product might have the following general specifications:
    1.Configuration Nr. 1: An Industrial Product that consists of the integration of two main system components – that includes multiple Quark X units mounted on a standardized heat-exchanger module.
    2.Configuration Nr. 2: An Industrial Product that consists of the integration of three main system components – that includes multiple Quark X units mounted on a standardized heat-exchanger module with an integrated electronics control sub-unit.
    3.Since the physical dimensions of the Industrial Product will be dictated by the number of Quark X modules mounted on the standardized heat-exchanger assembly, could the x and y dimensions the initial Industrial Product be one of the following:
    a)25 cm x 25 cm (or less)
    b)50 cm x 50 cm (or less)
    c)1-meter x 1-meter (or less)
    d)More than 1-meter square
    4.Could the initial Industrial Product assembly contain:
    a)50 Quark X modules (or less)
    b)100 Quark X modules (or less)
    c)500 Quark X modules (or less)
    d)More than 500 Quark X modules
    It is understandable if you cannot reveal this information at this time. However, I want to thank you for your extraordinary dedication and hard work in creating a revolutionary product that will be of benefit to the whole world. I wish you great success in your endeavor.

    Giuseppe Ungaretti is an Italian Poet and I consider him the best Italian poet of the last century ( google Giuseppe Ungaretti ). His masterpiece is the poetry “Mattina” (Morning), whose text is:

    M’illumino
    d’immenso

    The greatness of this poetry is in the density of meaning. In Italian “m’illumino” means “I enlighten myself” and “d’immenso” means ” by the immense”.
    Therefore a ( bad ) translation could be

    I enlighten myself
    by the immense

    Useless to explain, who wants to understand understands, who wants not to understand can turn to videogames.
    My answer was just a joke:

    “M’illumino
    di denso”

    means “I enlighten myself by the dense”, which is just a paraphrase of the poetry of Ungaretti playing with the similar sound of “immense” and “dense”, playing also with the fact that the essence of Ungaretti’s genius was in his talent to condense universal meanings with few words.
    Letting poetry alone, the density of power of the E-Cat QX is very high and yes, I think that jet engines or gas engines can be born by this technology. The numbers are what they are.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I understood that the E-Cat reactor has a diameter of 0.08 cm and a length of 0.6 cm. This makes a volume of 0.04^2 x Pi x 0.6 cm^3, which makes 0.003 cubic centimeters. The power that has been measured during the Stockolm test is 20 W. These two numbers make the power density of the E-Cat QX 20 W/0.003 cm^3. This energy density is stunning, it makes a power density of 333 x 20 W/cm^3= 6.6kW/cm^3
    Now I understand why you are thinking to a jet engine operated by the E-Cat QX. We are at the eve of a new industrial revolution.
    God bless your work

    Dear Andrea,

    I would agree that from the information you have shared, you have a very ambitious business plan.

    1. Do you now have the expertise at your disposal to make a sophisticated robotic production line?
    2. Is the goal of mass production in 2018 yours alone, or is it something your whole team is working towards?
    3. Is it realistic to expect the presentation of the first product in 2018?

    Best wishes,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    the robots are able to perform interventions even on very small parts such as, for example, in electronic integrated circuits. I think that initially there will be a clear design of what and how to make the object. So the first robot will be programmed to build the first prototype and then test the result. And with subsequent tests to eliminate errors and defects, you will reach the optimal result. And finally, this robot will be multiplied to start large-scale production.
    Is it roughly right?

    It’s amazing what you are doing!

    Kind regards,
    Italo R.

  787. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    You are correct about the robotization.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, after some folks catch moment during Stockholm demo when first “trigger” signal from control box into reactors was not successfull, I had such laic idea: Maybe in Stockholm is slightly different humidity of air than is humidity in Miami. Because now it is clear that “fuel” is not nickel powder, is it possible that different humidity in “fuel” is reason of this first moment faux pas ?

  791. Andrea Rossi

    Ivan Samec:
    The phenomenons you are referring to are normal and commanded by the control system. There has not been any faux pas and the atmospheric conditions do not affect the operation of the E-Cat.

    Hi Andrea, the issue of the overheating of the electronic could depend from the impedance of the load that does not match with the One of the output stage.
    This is a well known issue in ham radio world.
    Any OM can analyze the situation, and hopefully find a solution.
    The phenomena I am writing of is the STATIONARY WAVE RATIO (SWR).

  809. Dear Andrea,
    You have stated that the original ECat was falling apart and going to fail by the end of the 1 year test. With the Ecat QX – 1)How long is the longest you have run one? 2) Do you have reason to believe it will be more durable than the Ecat ? 3) Are you confident that it will work for 1 year before being “recharged ” considering what occurred with the original Ecat ?

  823. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    As time goes on, I feel that my understanding of what’s happening inside the Quark my be improving — if I’m not mistaken on many issues or deluding myself.

    Here is my latest step by step thought process (my personal best estimate at this time).

    Note: First, to understand the fundamental electron cluster generating effect, I’ll consider a scenario in which the electrodes are either not hydrogenated (loaded to the point of embrittlement) or somehow protected by a barrier such as a diamond like carbon film to reduce the energy required for field emission. I’ll propose how hydrogenation could enhance energy production near the end.

    1) A high voltage pulse of DC current is applied to the cathode. This application of current is carefully controlled (by the use of a resistor and the basic parameters of the device) to push past the point of ordinary glow discharge into “Abnormal Glow Discharge” without moving beyond to a high current “arc discharge.” At some point before an arc discharge is established, an “EVO: Exotic Vacuum Object” (a torodial structure composed of a flow of electrons) is emitted from the cathode.

    2) The emitted EVO — likely with heavy ions trapped inside the body of the torus — formed starts to move forward towards the anode. At this moment multiple phenomena are occurring.

    a) The heavy ions in the core of the EVO are being anomalously accelerated towards the anode. This is probably due to the manipulation of the zero point energy field by the seemingly impossible concentration of electrons, producing a “warp drive” like effect that can screen the properties of mass/inertia.

    b) A spray of nano-particles, likely metal nuclei from the “ecton” explosion on the cathode surface, is anomalously accelerated forward. This is due to a longitudinal force or LINEAR “magnetic vector potential” imparting a powerful motive force towards the anode.

    c) A powerful anomalous acceleration of ions onto the cathode (in the opposite direction of the EVO and spray of nano-particles) takes place. This is due to a motive force or vector potential in the opposite direction.

    3) We have one large (still a small fraction of a micrometer in diameter) or many smaller (perhaps hundredths of a micrometer in diameter) moving towards the anode. Likely, as described by Kenneth Shoulders, they are being guided along by the dielectric wall of the reactor (likely quartz in this case). Because of the hydrogen/lithium gas mixture in the capillary tube forming the reactor, they don’t usually travel along the walls and etch channels in the surface. (Of course, if they did, they would continually use these channels on each subsequent cycle.) They are now being accelerated even faster to potentially a fraction of the speed of light, with the KE of their entrained heavy ions much higher than the input energy used to accelerate them. The longitudinal, linear magnetic vector potential they are generating is still being directed in the forward direction. This re-enforces the movement of negatively charged ions, single electrons, and other EVOs towards the anode.

    4) The EVOs crash into the anode. Not even considering the multiple ways that the anomalous KE could induce fusion reactions, the electrons released creates a pulse of current. Likewise, only a brief moment before, other ions (including protons) were accelerated into the cathode. This could also produce a pulse that could be picked up on an oscilloscope. From this reactions, energy extracted from the active vacuum can be turned into real world power in the circuit. Sometimes, these overunity pulses may be in the form of an alternating current (depending upon which electrode is being impacted) that can be rectified into direct current.

    5) This overunity electrical energy could potentially be the source of the overheating in your control box. I expect the engineering to reduce the overheating is challenging because the electrical power being generated is of a strange nature due to fast rate of change (powerful spikes) and the magnitude of the current produced.

    6) In addition to the power in your circuit leading back to the control box, I expect that longitudinal wave emissions (magnetic vector potential) or what’s called — using the slang-like jargon of the free energy field — “scalar waves.” If you placed an appropriately designed antenna near either end of the Quark (perhaps a hollow metal sphere or linear length of conductive rod) you could pick up even more power that’s being produced but is currently escaping collection.

    7) If the circuit is properly setup with the proper impedance to prevent an arc discharge from forming, trains of repeating EVO generating pulses can be produced from a single trigger event. If they start to decline, another can be applied.

    Addendum #1

    I’d like to add that utilizing hydrogen embrittled electrodes and lithium in the interior of the reactor may change everything — dramatically enhancing power production. This is because the powerful impact of anomalously accelerated heavy ions on both the cathode and anode (sprayed out of the cathode towards the anode, carried in the interior of the EVO towards the anode, or accelerated in the reverse direction onto the cathode) may induce powerful nuclear reactions. Here are the types I see being possible.

    0) There are papers online indicating that while !ACTUALLY IN FLIGHT BETWEEN ELECTRODES! EVO’s may pull in positive ions, accelerate them to high energies in the MeV range, make them collide with other ions in their interior, and produce nuclear reactions. This energy may help sustain or even grow the EVO in size, but the majority of the KE would not be deposited until impact on the anode when the structure of the electron cluster is destroyed. Note, the high magnetic fields inside the body of the torus where the positive ions are contained during transit may somehow screen the coulomb barrier.

    1) Upon impact with the anode or cathode, the anomalously accelerated heavy ions (even those not contained in an EVO) may have enough kinetic energy to produce traditional nuclear reactions on the atoms they impact.

    2) Upon impact with the hydrogen embrittled anode or cathode, structural damage inflicted upon the brittle metal lattice may cleave bonds that result in fracto-emission of electrons resulting in the production of additional EVOs! These EVOs will produce structural damage in both directions, ahead of them and behind them, thus, doing more damage to the lattice. This creates a self-sustaining cycle of additional EVO production, extraction of energy from the vacuum that may be thermalized, and continuous nuclear events.

    a) Some EVOs produced by fracto-emission in the lattice may accelerate easily available protons and produce nuclear reactions by simple collisions.

    b) Some EVOs produce by fracto-emission may be small enough borough through the electron shells of nickel atoms (because the protons are being disguised by the electron cluster), get close to the nucleus, and when not ejected produce fusion reactions.

    3) The use of very highly loaded and embrittled, perhaps even supersaturated, nickel-manganese electrodes would increase the production of energy in the reactor. The one drawback to this could be the production, depending upon the fuel components utilized, of unwanted radiation (for example if you were utilizing a deuterium atmosphere instead of light hydrogen). By minimizing hydrogenation of the the electrodes, zero point energy could be tapped with less radiation emitted. Or, maybe, you have tuned the reaction to maximize the fusion of protium and lithium, resulting only in alpha particles with only a low incidence of other reactions.

    Addendum #2

    Here I’d like to express how marveled I am at your invention. If my thinking is correct, which it may or may not be, you’ve created a device that harnesses vacuum energy to catalyze the production of nuclear reactions — with the energy extracted from both processes expressed as heat, light, or electricity. Moreover, with proper configuration, the reaction force against the cathode could easily be made into a source of thrust for space craft propulsion. And, as I’ve said before, I think most of your output energy is being lost to the environment in the form of longitudinal broadcasts of magnetic vector potential that are not being captured.

    If this is the case, Bravo!

    Sincerely,
    Hank

    Dear Andrea,

    If you recall our discussions in June 2016 about the QX reactor based Remote Area / Emergency power plant that I planned to build in 8ft containers. Please refer to the discussion on ECW: https://e-catworld.com/2016/06/22/remote-area-disaster-relief-acdc-power-heated-air-warm-water-and-clean-water-e-cat-quarkx-system-concept-engineer48/ and the plant schematic: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/aee048a84a8998a39ebced0c5ead6fc90504f58983946fd90df23c257890acd0.jpg

    I’m still keen to move forward with this project as I believe these plants can deliver life saving energy and clean water to many of the world’s population that are energy and clean water poor. I’m sure many storm damaged areas of the planet would also benefit from drop in QX reactor based power plants delivering electricity, clean water, hot water and steam.

    Back then you shared the QX could output 10% of total energy as electricity and that you had a goal to achieve at least 20% by product launch. Is the 10% still available and have you achieved the 20% goal?

    I look forward to receiving my 1st QX reactor and building a pilot plant.

    Rodney Nicholson, I cannot agree more as the world does evolve and this is something that the teacher was totally unaware of. Similarities of vibration, group together and consequently form two antagonistic groups that cannot agree with regards that of intelligence which verses consciousness . However, fortunately for the the forces of nature positive penetrates the negative and is able to wave it good bye. It is the time transition that is aggravating but also it can be looked upon as the comical situation. Would you jeopardize your source of income for nothing other than an idea even if the idea was grounded in common sense. This is the problem but life is a challenge and this is what makes it exciting, especially from the intelligent dimension. Regards Eric Ashworth.

    Very interesting the Carl-Oscar part of lecture that is seeable in the video from 26’40” to 27’15”
    Congratulations for the successful demo of Stockolm.
    Cheers

    Dear Andrea, My thoughts are that to try and explain the LENR process as a unique stand alone process that requires an understanding outside of known physics is a detriment to its acceptance within the academic establishment. Therefore, to project the LENR phenomena into the accepted world of physical phenomena will help clear many of its present day obstacles. This I believe can be done but only by the study of certain phenomenas outside of the LENR process. I will attempt to explain what I mean. My source of study is the Wikipedia web site but I am sure there are other places of equal value or more.

    There are two dimensions of existence. There is the dimensionless state being the ‘Time Crystal’ from which no energy can be extracted whereas the dimensional state is able to donate degrees of energy. By keeping these two dimensions in mind we are able to explore the many avenues regarding various phenomenas that originate as a direct result of the existence of these two states.

    For instance:- Fraunhoferlines – Dark lines in the Solar Spectrum (could be termed ‘Time Lines’) – Telluric currents Telluric corrections – Contaminates/corrections and there effect, being the producing of a vibration.

    Any substance that enters a ‘Time Crystal’ or a Fraunhoferline can be considered a contaminant and thereby subjected to a degree of force which can result in a very minute vibration/hum to that of a crackle or as in some instances a very loud bang. This phenomena depends upon the specific degree of intensity i.e. whether on the micro scale or the macro scale of existence.

    The current understanding with regards what is termed the ‘world hum’ is none existent because there is a lack of knowledge regarding the full understanding of these two distinct dimensions with regards how they can come into being both in nature and by artificial means and how they interact. I suspect the ‘world hum’ is caused by natural voids within the oceans. Islands and land masses create deep voids between them that contain a soft energy content/water. Obviously some people are susceptible to these vibrations whereas others are not. This is because it depends upon the density of the receptor. The Earth is an evolving entity that responds to the forces it encounters on its path of evolution.

    If we can investigate these phenomenas without just blindly accepting them as an occurrence, the LENR process could become recognized and accepted as just another avenue of a known cause. These two dimensions I believe are the foundations required in the understanding of physics and can I believe be represented using geometry and I am sure mathematics but it needs specialists willing to collaborate which of course requires finance. This could be something to consider but in the meantime I wish you all the best.

    Regards Eric Ashworth.
    P.S. I am sure there are more phenomenas in existence that I am not aware of that could help unravel this LENR paradox.

    In response to Hugh Maguire’s December 13 at 3:06 AM: “…. This characteristic alone is basis enough for an attack from the academic camp, as it demonstrates nonconformity, an incorrigible act.”….

    The quote reminds me of one of my father’s school reports as a young boy. The teacher wrote: “This boy shows signs of independent thinking, which must be supressed at all costs.”

    For anyone not familiar with Ken Shoulders, your time will not be wasted by googling his name.

    Congratulations

  857. Andrea Rossi

    Ira:
    Thank you from me and from our great team,
    Warm Regards,

  858. Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    There has been much discussion (here and on E-Cat World) about whether the RF signal across the QX is generated in the control unit box or originates within the QX itself.

    Is it possible that the frequency of the signal is dependent on, or is caused by, the distance between the two opposing faces of the nickel electrodes of the E-Cat QX, in much the same way that the frequency of a crystal oscillator is decided by the distance across the two faces of the slice of crystal?

    I hope that you are able to answer this (Please not publish this if it asks too much).

    Good luck for your path towards industrialisation into the New Year.

    Kind Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

  859. Andrea Rossi

    Martyn Aubrey:
    I am sorry, but I cannot answer to this in positive or in negative.
    Warm regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote: “We are working also on the measurement of the electricity directly produced in the reactor, but it is not easy. So far we just let it be thermalized.”

    1. Does this mean you have the ability to turn off or minimize the electricity produced in the reactor and somehow transform it to heat?

    2. Is the electricity produced directly by the QX problematic for you, if all you want is heat?

    3. Is the electricity produced directly by the QX responsible for the overheating of the control box?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  861. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  862. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    thank you for your clear answers and information, that directly and indirectly teach me how to think about these and other important issues.
    I believe that the kind of problems that you and your team have solved, are more complex than we can imagine. In fact some orders of magnitude more complicated.
    This also proves -to me- that this invention and this proceedings are a divine intervention. Salvation for the human race. At least for the forseeable time. Another chance.
    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  863. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Thank you for your kind attention to the work of our Team,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  864. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Last year you gave the following dimensions for the E-Cat Quark cell:
    November 4, 2016 at 11:35 AM
    Wilson Ramos:
    length 2 cm
    Diam 0.6 cm
    Rating 20 W
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

    This week the QX cell is reported by you to be length 0.6 cm and diameter 0.08 cm.

    Are these cells constructed differently? What is the advantage in reducing the size of the QX cell? Would’t this make assembly very difficult?

    Best of luck with your industrialization process.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  865. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G.Zavela:
    Yes, the design had an evolution.
    The advantage is a higher energy density.
    For a robot the assembly is not particularly difficult. For a human, it takes a lot of more time and errors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  866. E. Volpe

    I amplify the question of Chuck Davis
    The E-Cat QX system formed by the reactor and the control system:
    1) emit electromagnetic noise?
    2) emits neutrons, gamma rays or other particles and radiation of any kind outside the thermal and light band?
    3) Is a sort of shielding necessary, particularly in power systems?
    Best wishes

  867. Andrea Rossi

    E.Volpe:
    1- no
    2- all the measurements made did not find the presence outside the Ecat of ionizing radiations above the background, within the margin of error of the instrumentation
    3- the heat exchangers are designed to be intrinsecally a shielding. You need a heat exchanger, whatever use of the heat you want to do.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  868. Hugh Maguire

    Hello Dr. Rossi,
    A good friend recently sent me this. He things it’s important and I heartily agree. A thought on what it’s like to be a “scientific explorer”, from the late Ken Shoulders.

    “An Explorer is the human tip of an arrow-like probe into the future where no teachers have gone before. They say explorers are easily recognized as one rides along the frontier in a comfortable Calistoga wagon. Explorers are the ones beside the trail whose face is in the mud and have an arrow in the back. That illusion is not too far from the truth as they are frequently attacked while crossing treacherous territory all alone. For the scientific explorer, attacks most often come from the most benign looking sources—academic institutions. Explorers must be natural, self-motivated leaders and possibly those that cannot be taught, as they must learn new things for themselves instead of being taught. This characteristic alone is basis enough for an attack from the academic camp as it demonstrates nonconformity, an incorrigible act.”

    Thank you for the demo the other day it is always exciting to see the ecats out and about. Do you have commercial licensees in Australia?

    Thank you

    Dear AR,
    Congratulations on your results – very well deserved. The new Hydrofusion web pages look very convincing. One small typo in the LENR Technology drop down is the omission of a number in ‘Heat, CHP, Power, Ships, Trains > kW/kg’
    regards
    Greg leonard

  873. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    We updated our website, making it still better: thank you for noticing it.
    Thank you also for the errata corrige of the typo !
    Warm Regards,

  874. arjen

    Dear Rossi

    Your role is mostly research and development, it always has, so my guess is, you will be mainly involved in RD also in the future?
    What is your role in the industrialization part of the ecat , in time %?
    A new or existing colleague is leading the industrialization operation? How many FTE are dedicated to this?

    kind regards
    Arjen

  875. Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    My role so far has not been only R&D. I directed the construction of the industrial 1 MW plant and the factories of Bondeno, Bologna, Ferrara, Miami. In my life I directed factories arriving to have more than 200 employees in Milan from 1972 through 2007, when I turned my job 100% to the LENR field of operation.
    Now my focus is 100% on the industrialization of the product, together with all the members of out Great team, along two main threads:
    1- upgrade the control system ( we already made importantant progress from Nov 24th 17 through today )
    2- make the production robotized lines
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  876. Brian

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will you make other public demonstrations before the presentation of the Ecat QX?

  877. Andrea Rossi

    Brian:
    No.
    All our time now is dedicated exclusively to the industrialization.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  878. Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Today in Paris the world is deciding to go toward new energy sources ant to no more fund traditional sources. Are you ready?

    Dania:
    Yes, we are. With the help of God, by the year 2018 we could enter massively the market.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  880. Chuck Davis

    Andrea Rossi,
    Do you have an estimate how much noise is present while the Ecat is operating?
    I ask this because some applications like residential, military, recreational vehicles and airplanes would be satisfied with a quiet power source.
    Regards
    Chuck Davis

  881. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    The E-Cat does not emit acoustic waves, therefore the E-Cat does not raise the acoustic background where it operates.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  882. Adam Lepczak

    Dr Rossi,
    Congratulations on successful presentation and rapid advancement of the industrialization phase of your project. As you move forward do not disregard the idea of creating your own cryptocurrency that is based around the LENR reaction.
    Every action in our universe involves the exchange of the energy and as such the energy seems to be the only “real” currency of the universe. Creating a symbolic currency that is tied to your system is much better of an idea (and gives an easy to understand link and value) than current money (both crypto and paper). Why use dollar if your system could be tied to an actual energy value? For the first time ever? Versus Bitcoins, dollars, and euros that are printed out of thin air.

  883. Andrea Rossi

    Adam Lepczak:
    Thank you for your suggestion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  884. Robert

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you know that Nissan has replicated your effect and is oriented to apply your technology to heat the electric cars? By the way: is your IP patented also in Japan?
    Cheers,
    Robert

  885. Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    I know.
    Our patent has been granted also in Japan, and we are very proud of it.
    War Regards,
    A.R.

  886. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    as it seems that the electrical power generated by the QX goes back to the control box where it is thermalized, the real total COP of the QX is much greater.

    The problem is, I think, to separate this generated electrical power from control box without disturbing the signal feeding the QX. Is it right?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  887. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Intelligent insight, but I cannot answer in positive or in negative.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  888. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    This question came up on E-Cat World and I thought I’d pass it along to you”

    “Would like to ask Dr Rossi if the control box in the demo of 60W cooling is suitable for the control of an array ( series / parallel) of QX of 1kW heat output?”

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  889. Andrea Rossi

  890. Eric Ashworth

    Daniel De Caluwe, As you are aware evolution moves forward, language will change but the immutable knowledge remains forever. Matter is controlled by force and force is that which is not matter. Spirit I believe is an admixture which provides a paradox for that which thinks and tries to discern in order to understand. The Master Koothumi does not mention ‘Time Crystals’ but understands the subject implicitly.
    To understand force is to understand the governor i.e. both the big chief and the little chiefs.
    P.S. This manuscript is news to me, thanks for broadcasting it.
    Regards Eric Ashworth

  891. Dear Andrea,

    Yes, the big black hole story is interesting. There is a small anecdote related to it. MIT’s press release writes “…the black hole took shape just as the universe was undergoing a fundamental shift, from an opaque environment dominated by neutral hydrogen to one in which the first stars started to blink on.” ‘Opaqueness’ here refers to opaqueness in hydrogen Lyman alpha wavelength, not optical, but the press release does not mention this fact. Consequently, the story was wrongly publicised in some Finnish news outlet, which I corrected to them. In optical, the situation is the reverse because neutral hydrogen is transparent and ionised hydrogen scatters light to some extent.

    Concerning the topic, my colleague Peter Johansson published earlier this year a model that tries to explain such fast growth of black holes. See https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-03/uoh-nme031417.php . The key is that in the early universe, only molecular hydrogen was available to cool compressing gas clouds radiatively. If hydrogen molecules were split into atoms by radiation of another nearby galaxy, a large gas cloud can stay warm while undergoing gravitational collapse, and consequently it may collapse into a large black hole directly. If star formation manages to take place, collapse stops because a “star fluid” has no viscosity (the individual stars move in ballistic trajectories without friction with other stars or interstellar gas). Thus such mechanism can only work in the early universe where the universe did not contain heavier elements, and even then requires special conditions (existence of two nearby galaxies). Which suits in the picture because although they exist, the massive early black holes seem to be rare.

    Dear Andrea, Thank you for your recent reply which prompted me to do some brief study on the Wikipedia web site regarding Systemic systems, Time Crystals and Symmetry regarding physics. As you stated you are seeking a mathematical formulae for the LENR process. In the Time Crystal section there is mention of Experiments October 2016 Christopher Monroe in which a formulae is provided and maybe this could help you in some way. In 2016 Mikhail Lukiu did more research and maybe both your information and theirs could shed some light on the LENR process. In the meantime I wish you and your colleagues well and successful with your technology.

  895. orsobubu

    Dear Andrea, thank you for the fantastic developments you and your Team showed us in Stockholm.

    To Emilio “Fox” Volpe, I like to remember some years ago, when I asked Andrea more or less the same question, and he answered that, when the huge amount of work for the industrial product will be firmly on track, he will consider to write or co-write some memories, and surely (!!) he will tour the world with conferences and similar well deserved rock-star shows and hologram-televised appearances. I feel that all the material collected in these years should be preserved and organized to enter in science annals and “the social media supporters” too and also the orsobubu will have a role too in the history-telling of this epic fight.

    Situation is way worse in regard to the actual condition of Leonardo Corp. institutional landing page; I fear that not only the super-massive black hole ULAS J 1342+0928 is going back 690 million years in time, but also the dear old twin galaxies image as we remember it:

    https://web.archive.org/web/20160303165715/http://ecat.com/

    is fading and shrinking into the obscurity of the Dark Ages of the Universe where the revolutionary information is hidden:

  897. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

    You know that I always respond as a friend, and admire your work and art.

    Yet some critical remarks that rage through my mind.

    I think that the operation of an Ecat-QX between 30% and 100% of its power is very interesting:
    It is your own words that once declared that this invention generated direct propulsion and direct electric current.
    I would like to see the oscilloscope on the Ecat-QX itself, keep a compass on it, and see the bottom plate with the test set up on four marbles on a flat surface.

    Finally, I do not know whether the temperature formulas of a black body can be applied to a nuclear reactor.

    Curious regards,
    Koen

  898. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    We are working also on the measurement of the electricity directly produced in the reactor, but it is not easy. So far we just let it be thermalized. About the direct propulsion I suppose you mean jet engine: it is another pet project of us. But presently we are focusing on the massive industrialization of the product that is ready to go, which is the fluid heater.
    About ” temperature formulas of a black body “: do not exist specific formulas for the black body, exists the Boltzmann equation, that measures the thermal energy irradiated from a body independently from what it is. What changes for the different kinds of body is the Epsilon, which is the value of the emissivity that appears in the equation. A black body has Epsilon = 1 and this value does not depend from the nature of the source.

    Thanks for the time you took to speak with the Energy 2.0 Society today. There are some more questions that got posted on this page on E-Cat World here: http://e-catworld.com/2017/12/09/energy-2-0-society-to-hold-webcast-with-andrea-rossi-as-guest-december-9-2017/

    This question was sent to me, but I did not see this morning, but I thought I would post it here for your consideration:

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I don’t follow this forum contineously, and I only visit it from time to time, but as I just read your post about the super-massive black hole in the early universe, I can give you a link (from the popular website ‘space.com’) with more explanation how it could happen:

    (It’s the mysterious dark matter that steers the cosmos, and that let them grow much quicker than previously thought. The mechanism is explained in the article below):

    2 Bizarre Ancient Galaxies Found in a Colossal Sea of Dark Matter (space.com):

    https://www.space.com/39008-bizarre-ancient-galaxies-in-dark-matter-sea.html?utm_source=sdc-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20171207-sdc

    When the universe was in its infancy, the very first galaxies were tiny “dwarf galaxies” that clumped together to form the larger galaxies seen today. Known as hierarchical formation, this theory suggests that galaxies form in a step-by-step process as smaller galaxies are pulled together by their mutual gravitational attraction.

    But now, the recent discovery of two distant galaxies that are abnormally huge has led astronomers to rethink that theory because it suggests that those dwarf galaxies assembled into large galaxies a lot faster than previously thought.

    Astronomers at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile were surprised to find that these gigantic galaxies existed when the universe was only 780 million years old, or about 5 percent of its current age of 13.8 billion years. Because the light from those galaxies takes about 13 billion years to reach Earth, astronomers observing those galaxies are looking back in time at how the galaxies appeared 13 billion years ago…

    … Around that same time in the ancient universe, dark matter — a mysterious, invisible form of matter that accounts for about a quarter of the universe’s mass — also began to form clumps. As gravity pulled together clumps of both visible matter and dark matter, galaxies were born inside “halos” of dark matter. In a way, dark matter acts as scaffolding for young galaxies as they form by providing the gravity needed to pull mass together.

    In this case, astronomers saw that both giant galaxies reside inside one even more enormous dark-matter halo. The researchers said that this is one of the largest examples of a dark-matter halo ever discovered…

    …”This discovery provides new details about the emergence of large galaxies and the role that dark matter plays in assembling the most massive structures in the universe.”…

    At het end of the article there’s also a beautiful video that shows/simulates how these galaxies quickly merge by the influence of massive dark matter. But sometimes, smaller galaxies are protected by dark matter, as is explained in this article ( https://www.space.com/6407-galaxies-protected-dark-matter.html ). And as long as we don’t understand it fully, dark matter and dark energy behave as an hidden hand that steers the cosmos, like if it’s a living entity… 😉

    See also:

    Galaxies Protected by Dark Matter :

    https://www.space.com/6407-galaxies-protected-dark-matter.html

    P.S. This phenomenem was predicted by the theosofical master Koothumi in 1881-82, where he wrote of ‘invisible matter’ as ‘invisible omnipresent omnipotent Proteus with its unceasing motion which is its life’ See:

    http://www.theosophy-nw.org/theosnw/evol/ev-kh.htm

    …Then what do we believe in? Well, we believe in matter alone, in matter as visible nature and matter in its invisibility as the invisible omnipresent omnipotent Proteus with its unceasing motion which is its life, and which nature draws from herself since she is the great whole outside of which nothing can exist. For as [d’Holbach] truly asserts “motion is a manner of existence that flows necessarily out of the essence of matter; that matter moves by its own peculiar energies; that its motion is due to the force which is inherent in itself; that the variety of motion and the phenomena that result proceed from the diversity of the properties of the qualities and of the combinations which are originally found in the primitive matter” of which nature is the assemblage and of which your science knows less than one of our Tibetan Yak-drivers of Kant’s metaphysics….

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

    Dear Readers:
    In an article published on Nature on December 6th ir reported a very important discovery made by the team of the astronomer Eduardo Banados of the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile: they discovered a super-massive black hole, dubbed ULAS J 1342+0928, 800 million times more massive than our sun. The importance of the discovery stays in the fact that it existed only 690 million years after the Big Bang, which means at the very dawn of the formation of the Universe. This timing does not fit with the supposed amount of matter that was ready at that time. This puts in crisis the existing knowledge about the matter. It appears that in the Dark Ages of the Universe revolutionary information is hidden.
    Fascinating, isn’t it?
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea

    You are right. I have yesterday afternoon reviewed that video of the presentation. And between 02:26 and 02:28 where you formally discuss the point it is fully clear there.

    I would say the point regarding the size of the reaction zone was raised to Energy 2.0 as a question to try clarify this point due some misunderstanding about its size being in fractions mm being mentioned by other people elsewhere and being widely quoted as the actual size in the blogs. I’m sorry if that caused unintended confusion.

    I think you clarified the point here in response to that question perfectly. And it makes total sence now too.

    My overwhelming amazement about the E-Cat QX comes from how all these things fit together once they are correctly understood. Especially when some insight pice of the puzzle comes later which fits perfectly It’s remarkable.

    Could you please give some explanation for the fact that your Boltzmann calculation is for the surface area of one QX, but at the demo you said there were three of them inside?

  912. Andrea Rossi

    Matt:
    The calculation made by means of the spectrometer and the equations of Wien and Boltzmann that I described corresponds either to three QX at 30% circa of their potential rating, or one QX at his full rating.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    You have repeatedly said that your IP is in good hands and this is a guarantee for the future of LENR.
    It would also be interesting to have a detailed history of all the work you have done including failed attempts, abandoned roads, interesting ideas and speculations but which not developed for the most varied reasons. In short, a laboratory diary, or a scientific biography that collects and transmits all the work and experience you have done.
    The field of LENR seems very varied and seems to have many different aspects and may have unexpected developments, perhaps for something that you could not investigate today and that perhaps in the future for someone else could be valuable.
    Best wishes for your work and a friendly Merry Christmas

    Dear Readers:
    To be honest, I must report that this morning Frank Acland has told me that during the interview with him they put a question asking if the numbers I gave (0.08 x 0.6) were mm, but I understood cm, because the audio for me was very bad and I understood cm because for me it was obvious that we were talking of cm…I answered “yes” because I believed we were talking of cm and this has created the ambiguity.
    I understand.
    By the way, yesterday night when I wrote my comment I was very nervous and tired and my comment was full of errors and typos that I corrected this morning when I woke up and read it again: Dr Jeckill has corrected Mr Hyde.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  923. Stephen

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks very much for clearly clearing up the question about the Stefan Boltzmann equation.it completely makes sense now.

    To me that it is cm rather than mm fully reconciles the issue. Calorimetry always clearly and definitely showed 20W output. So the original discrepancy when we were thinking in mm was clearly missing something.

    The point about the size was hinted at very early in the presentation and returned to several times during it

    When talking about fractions of a cm and being amazed by how small that is it’s easy in conversation for one person to get confused between mm and fractions of a cm and fractions of a mm.

    I have made the same mistake myself.

    I have a suspicion that early in the conversation possibly even during the presentation that Andrea Rossi mentioned fractions of a cm then this got reinterpreted by someone in mm and then by someone else in fractions of a mm and this then got propagated. Andrea was acknowledging it was really small in his later response with out realizing people had changed cm for mm.

    Thank you for your kind attention.
    BUT: it is very strange that an expert of the matter makes a mistake like this, because when I repeated by heart the Boltzmann equation during the demo of Stockholm, it is obvious that I spoke of cm, not mm, from the fact that in the Boltzmann equation I calculated Sigma with 10^-12, instead of 10^-8: it is a cm^2 that is equal to 1/10^4 m^2, not a mm^2 !

    Frank Acland ( second answer):
    I checked your link and read that a guy has written that, based on the surface of the reactor, he has “calculated” that by the equation of Boltzmann the energy emitted by a reactor is 0.4 W.
    I think your Readers merit a serious application of the rules of Physics and of Mathematics, to avoid to assume wrong scientific information.
    First of all, it is opportune to remember that the measurements at the IVA of Stockholm have been made by means of calorimetry, not by means of spectrometry and following Wien and Boltzmann equations.
    Nevertheless, it is interesting to compare the results obtained by calorimetry ( based on the delta T and the flow rate of water) vs the theoretical energy produced by the reactor using spectrometry and the equations of Wien and Boltzmann.
    Here are the numbers if we respect the rules of mathematic:
    The first step is to calculate the temperature of the plasma. Since do not exist thermocouples able to resist to temperatures above the melting point of platinum and rhodium, to measure the temperature of a plasma is necessary to measure the wavelength of the radiation from the plasma in microns; the measurements I made give a wavelength between 1 and 1.1 microns.
    Now we can use the equation of Wien
    T = 2900/lambda
    wherein
    T= temperature in K
    2900 = Wien constant
    lambda = wavelength in microns
    By substitution we have
    T= 2900/1.1 ( to be conservative we take the longest lambda )
    Therefore T= 2636 K
    Now that we have found the T, we can proceed to calculate the power using the equation of Boltzmann, whose definition is:
    W = Sigma x Epsilon x T^4 x A(in m^2)
    Wherein:
    Sigma = 5.67 x 10^-8 BUT ATTENTION: we will use 10^-12, because the Area will be calculated in cm^2, not in m^2 and 1 cm^2=10^-4 m^2
    Epsilon= emissivity: being plasma a black body the emissivity is = 1
    T^4= fourth power of the temperature of the surface in K = 4.8 x 10^13
    A= area of the surface of the plasma= 2rPiL= cm 0.08 x 3.14 x cm 0.6 = cm^2 0.15
    Now, we have all the data necessary to resolve the equation of Boltzmann per W:
    W = 5.67 x 10^-12 x 1 x 4.8 x 10^13 x 0.15
    Make the series of multiplications, apply the rules of the exponentials and find the result:
    W = 40.82
    This result is the theoretical thermal power of our plasma. As we have seen from the demo of Stockolm, the calorimetry has given a result that is about the 30% of the total power, because I was afraid of errors and kept the E-Cat QX at low profile.
    Besides, the spectrometry is an immediate measurement that gives the theoretical power, while the calorimetry is made on the actual production of heat through a heat exchanger whose efficiency obviously is not 100%. It is interesting, though, to note that the order of magnitude is reconciled.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  929. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    With the very high COP of the E-Cat QX reactors, what is the reason you are working so hard on recovering heat from the control system, which I would assume would be somewhat insignificant compared to the heat produced by many E-Cats powered by the controller?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    There are significant worldwide efforts toward replacing electric power generation based on steam turbines (Rankine Thermodynamic Cycle) with Natural Gas-fired Turbo-generators or Super-Critical Carbon Dioxide (S-CO2) based Turbo-generators (Brayton Thermodynamic Cycle).

    Natural Gas Turbines (essentially, Jet Engines that produce electricity) have high conversion efficiency (50-60%) and are replacing power plants currently using steam turbines heated by fossil fuels.

    http://www.powermag.com/market-challenged-ge-continues-to-improve-gas-turbine-efficiency/

    Nuclear reactors and Solar Thermal Plants (e.g SunShot Initiative) do not use fossil fuels but still need a working fluid.

    https://energy.gov/eere/solar/sunshot-initiative

    Heat Sources such as the E-CAT QX also need a working fluid to produce electricity.

    That working fluid, someday soon, may be compressed (Supercritical) Carbon Dioxide.

    Here are some links describing some recent work in Korea and the US in the S-CO2 area.

    http://www.orc2017.com/uploads/File/Presentations/234.pdf (Includes fossil fuel heat sources)

    In the next several years, perhaps you and your team could work together with one of the SCO2 turbine developers to prototype a system in the 20 kWe -40 kWe range that would be operationally compatible with the QX.

    Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year,

    Dear Mr. Rossi, have you ever think to develop a new crypto-money (like bitcoin or something similar) that could be grows following the development of your ecat…? The energy production given from any device could be logged using its blockchain and making its performances auto-self-certified (but even public)… The system could be useful to support the development of the ecat in a new, rapid and most unconditionated way. Your project could also resolve, totally or partially, the problem of the extremely high costs of the ‘mining activity’ that is typical of the crypto-money creation. Anyway, most of people, or better ‘all the people’, that follows your project can’t wait to put their hands on your device. What do you think about? Wish you all the best so your dream will come true (as soon as possible).

  943. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Can you tell me if Carl-Oscar Gullstrom’s theory explains why your reactor has to be at a certain temperature? Does it explain why it doesn’t work at room temperature or colder? Thank you.

  944. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    You do not need a theory to answer this: the E-Cat is a fluid heater, therefore it is the E-Cat that makes the heat, not the heat that makes the E-Cat.
    The E-Cat starts at any temperature, then it heats up everything it is in contact with.

  945. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Is the time spent waiting for the certification of the old domestic version (10KW) is included in the domestic QX certification process, or do you have to completely start the certification process from the beginning ? Do you have a plan in order to accelerate the process for the domestic reactor?
    The fact is that the certification of the old domestic E-cat (10KW) has never been successful after 4 years, including the 1 year test of the 1MW industrial version.
    On the certification of the domestic version, perhaps i am wrong, but i do not believe you, i am sorry. You probably do not say everything to us for a reason I do not know.
    If we have to wait for new long-term tests for the industrial version of the QX, I’m afraid that the certification of the domestic version of the QX, the one we are interested in, does not happen for years, if it ever happens.

    Best regards,

    Michel

  946. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    I respect your opinion. Also in this case, facts will speak. The domestic Ecat certification process is on course. I think until the industrial applications will have built up positive statistics we will not complete this process. All the experience of operations so far has been done upon prototypes attended to by our specialists every day: this opens the door of industrial applications attended by certified operators, but it is not sufficient for domestic applications, for obvious reasons.

    Dear Andrea,
    Just to be clear on nomenclature–
    – Do you expect that it is the “reactor” that will be the replaceable unit when it comes time to refresh the charge (say, at the end of 1 year) or will it be a sub-component of the reactor (for instance, an assembly or cluster) that is replaced and recharged?

    – Or put another way, if your current goal for the reactor is $10/KWt, do you have a lesser goal for the recharge cost?

    thanks, WaltC

  950. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    The recharge cost should be 1/10 of the cost of the reactor.

  951. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I believe marine propulsion will be the most likely Quark technology application for commercial use in transportation. Marine propulsion requires long duration operation with incentives to minimize fuel costs while taking advantage of higher operating speeds. Output powers of 100MW to 1,000MW may be needed for marine propulsion of large cargo ships. Imagine a cargo carrier that could maintain 30 knots without significantly increasing fuel operating costs. The same ship could transport 3 to 4 times the cargo in a single year, only needing to be refueled once per year. Thoughts?

    Dear Andrea, Thank you for your in depth reply regarding the possible mechanisms behind the LENR process and you links. I find your thoughts most interesting and as many people are aware you are dealing on a subject at the sub atomic level. I have limited knowledge with regards atomic physics but have you considered gravity a a constituent of the LENR process. We all know the effect of gravity but very little about its cause. I believe there are two types of gravity with regards its manufacture, there is the static standing form as found in a lattice created by the surrounding units of gravity and a mobile fleeting form produced by the breaking of molecular bonds/waves which creates a fleeting type of gravity due to the break in the waves that form the bond and which in turn, upon being broken produces a gap or a zone of gravity which then draws within that which is without which are the long and short wave makeup of the original molecular bond. These waves being drawn together into the gravity zone are first transformed into virtual particles of substance This transformation of wave into particle could be the result of the wave making itself neutral with regard the two exterior gravity masses that have broken apart, a particle can spin and by doing so remain neutral. The short wave transforms into a positive virtual particle, the long wave transforms into a long wave negative particle which upon there eventual contact neutralize that generates a repelling force that enables both virtual particles to escape from the gravity zone. These being soft virtual particles of artificial origin that create chaos in the surrounding area measurable by a degree heat. I suspect that once the virtual particles lose there gravity by imploding due to there ability to raise both temperature and pressure they transform back to there original wave format. If so, it could be said gravity is responsible for electrical phenomena, atomic phenomena, solar and LENR phenomena. It was your mention of virtual particles that got my attention. I believe all you need are two dissimilar charges to create a zone of gravity and thereby produce energy by a neutralizing of that which is brought together by the action of the produced gravity. My own thoughts are that wherever energy exists gravity is the key ingredient. Energy as is well known can be latent or kinetic. Energy requires a degree of disturbance to transform itself from latent to kinetic, thereby if gravity is produced kinetic energy must be manufactured. Just some of my own thoughts. Hope you get the maths to solidify the LENR theory.
    All the best Eric Ashworth

    Letter to the Editor: Major advance in cold fusion touted as energy solution

    It is hard to overestimate the effect LENR will have on our civilization. First use will be supplying industrial heat. Probably 10 years to start getting vehicles powered by LENR. That will be everything: cars, trucks, trains and ships. Imagine being able to drive a car continuously for a year without refueling or 2.4 hours a day for 10 years. Robots will be fully mobile. Airplanes will take longer but Dr. Rossi is already looking at the possibility of LENR turbines. Don’t throw away your household furnace and water heater yet: it will take years to get UL approval.

    How much is the energy consumed by the E-Cat QX and for what is used the energy consumed by the control system that is not consumed by the E-Cat QX itself?

  974. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    Let’s take the numbers obtained during the Stockolm test.
    To produce 20 Wh/h the E-Cat QX consumed 0.16 x 3/7 = 0.07 Wh/h, operating at about the 30% of its continuous operation rating. This is the amount of energy that the control board supplied to the E-Cat QX. Actually, considering the integrals of the waves, the consume is considerably less, but this makes things complicated, so just forget the integrals.
    The control box produces also heat, the amount of which varies depending on many factors and this heat can be fully recovered for other uses, with a COP close to 1 ( it will be 1 minus the energy consumed by the E-Cat, circa). The by product obtained will be heated fluid, for example air or water, that can be used for other purposes not necessarily connected to the E-Cat. For example ( just one example among an endless series) : the E-Cat, with its COP, supplies energy to make electricity or steam, while the control box supplies heat to help a heating system or an air conditioned circuit.
    The energy by-produced by means of the control box, anyway, is destined to fade in time, because the engineering we are developing for the industrialization will reduce dramatically the heat dissipation of the components.

    Eric Ashworth:
    Good question.
    Please go to the lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom ( video available also on http://www.ecat.com and paper published on the Journal of Nuclear Physics) and there is a crucial point of our theoretical work, where we write that when the temperature in a field raises the mass of a particle, waves are formed that correspond to virtual particles with the mass corresponding to that temperature. Such waves, at our temperatures, can have a mass of 1-2 eV and must be waves and antiwaves. When I suggested to Carl-Oscar this model, we decided to put it under the proof of mathematical calculations in the context of the mechanism of the spin polarizability; it could result to be wrong: it is borderline, but still inside the Standard Model if we consider that we are talking of virtual particles, that are not actual elementary particles, but resonances of waves with a lifespan in the order of 10^-18 to 10^-23 s. Their low mass could justify the absence of strong radiations, while the waves-antiwaves annihilation could explain the effect. It will be very difficult to proof, but we are studying on this. It is something that could reconcile the behavior of the E-Cat QX and I believe I am right, but I know that probably I am wrong. We’ll see.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Carissimo Andrea,
    about customer service can you say something? I imagine that the device can not be replaced by the customers themselves.
    thanks and good job

    Gian Luca:
    You are correct.
    We will organize the necessary assistance in all the areas wherein we will sell our products,

    Toussaint Francois:
    No, it is irrelevant to the COP of the E-Cat QX. The COP of the E-Cat QX is given by the ratio between the energy that enters the E-Cat QX and the energy that the same E-Cat QX generates.
    Warm Regards,

  983. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you say what was the average power output of the reactor you did the 5 Sigma testing on? And for how long it ran in total?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  984. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Because I hate to waste the warm air that exits from the control box. It is not a fundamental issue, but still there is energy to recover at COP 1, easy to be recovered, whatever the power of the plant and whatever the utilization, just preheating the fluid before it enters the reactors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  985. Toussaint françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    One question please,when you will optimise the recovery of the energy consumed by the cooling system, do you think it will increase the COP of your E-CAT QX ?

    Warm Regards

    Toussaint françois

  986. JPR

    Can we have an update of your present activity and where is it on course?

  987. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    In these days we are in the USA doing work related to the control system, to miniaturize it and also I am making measurements related to the recovery of all the energy consumed by the cooling system.
    Both in the USA and in Sweden we are working on the industrialization issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  988. Prof

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The more I watch the video of the Stockolm demo, the more I consider the Ecat QX a masterpiece. By the way, the energy consumed by the control system to cool the component and the heat dissipation of the components is almost totally recoverable by means of a heat exchanger.
    Congratulations,
    Prof

  989. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes, the energy consumed by the control system is entirely recovered with a heat exchanger. We are measuring the thermal energy recovered by means of an air/air heat exchanger and we are recovering almost totally the energy consumed by the circuitry and the fans of the control system. Obviously the same energy can be recovered by an air/water heat exchanger, preheating the water at the inlet of the E-Cat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The science journal NATURE reports that lightning can trigger nuclear reactions and create isotopic changes in the atmosphere.

    https://www.nature.com/news/lightning-makes-new-isotopes-1.23033

    Teruaki Enoto, an astrophysicist at Kyoto University in Japan reports:

    “On 6 February, the detectors sensed an unusual event. A double lightning bolt just off the coast shot out an initial, one-millisecond spike of γ-rays, with relatively high energies of up to 10 megaelectronvolts. This was followed by a γ-ray afterglow of less than half a second. Then there was a telltale signal — γ-rays concentrated at 511 kiloelectronvolt ??s of energy, which lasted for about a minute. Physicists say this is the unmistakable signature of positrons annihilating in a puff of energy as they hit electrons in the surrounding matter.”

    You have not reported production of high energy gamma rays (10 MeV) in the E-Cat QX (or its previous generations).

    If lightning can produce isotopic changes or even electron-positron reactions in the atmosphere, it is even more remarkable that the E-Cat can do so on a much smaller scale. Of course, there is little if any Nickel or Lithium in the air.

    Besides the existing Trade Mark – “The New Fire”, what do you think of the terms “Bottled Lightning”, “Leonardo’s Lightning” or even “Rossi’s-Lightning”?

    Congratulations on your successful demonstration at the IVA on Friday, Nov 24th.

    I/(We) wish you and your team success in the build-up of the Industrialization phase.

    As you already know, ‘SUCCESS’ only comes before ‘WORK’ in the Dictionary.

    Best regards,

    Joseph Fine

    Dr Rossi,
    We are still shocked for what you have given evidence of in Stockolm. When will we be able to buy a domestic E-Cat QX?
    Thomas

  993. Andrea Rossi

    Thomas:
    Whereas we are sure of the industrialization of the industrial E-Cat QX, for the domestic we still do not have a certification.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Some questions:
    1- how long is the charge of the QX enough for?
    2- how will be made the recharge?
    3- how much will it cost?
    Thanks,
    George Dvorak

  997. Andrea Rossi

    George Dvorak:
    1- from 6 to 12 months
    2- we will change the modules ( as it happens when you change batteries )
    3- a price irrelevant to the worth of the energy produced, to be determined
    Thank you for your attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,

  1004. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on a very persuasive demonstration!
    With the advent of new interests from corporations, the launch of industrialization of the product and industrialization of the production, do you currently have plans for future facility expansion beyond the two plants?

    You have mentioned previously that once the E-Cats will be on the market, “very likely there will be made all the necessary financial operations to have an exponential diffusion of the product”. My thought is, once that happens competition for the E-Cat QX will be fierce vying for the obvious profit margin advantage and will stress production demand beyond the current two plants.
    Would doubling of the production output per year reasonably reflect its massive exponential distribution?
    Thank you and God bless.
    Brokeeper

  1005. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for your kind expressions.
    The production, as well as the financial expansion, will follow the demand from the market. Surely local manufacturing concerns will be necessary, but iit is opportune not to put the cart ahead of the horses.

I believe within one, two years the Ecat QX will be in the market.

    Opinions.

  1018. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Considering the size and nominal power output of the Quark reactors, I suggest a 100 Quark unit could be of the dimensions of 50mm x 12mm diameter, cylindrical tube. Conceptually, this would consist of 4 grouping of 25 Quark reactors located along the longitudinal axis of the cylinder. Each 25 Quark grouping would be equal distance from the longitudinal axis of the cylinder near the outside and equally distributed, located just below the surface of the cylinder.

    A thermal modeling of such a unit, producing 2kW of thermal power, as a horizontal cylinder in air would result in a surface temperature of about 2,000 degC, assuming 100C ambient and convective and radiative transfer only.

    This roughly 2″ by 1/2″ cylinder would be relatively easy to handle, produce a reasonable amount of power and could allegedly be controlled by a single control unit.

    So, as an example, for a 1GW electrical power generating plant, assuming 50% Carnot efficiency, you would need 1 million of these cylinders to power the plant. Thoughts?

  1019. Andrea Rossi

  1022. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    Some more questions.

    You said that the temperature of the ecat was 2600K, I imagine derived by spectrometry, because few material and I think no termocouple resist at this temperature.
    Melting point of the nickel is about 1600C, but certainly below 2600K.
    So this is the temperature of a plasma.

    Plasma of what?
    How did you manage to not melt the reactor fuel?
    What is the maximum temperature that it reaches?
    How far is the discharge from the fuel?
    Have you tried to get a clean spectrum to infer the plasma material from the peaks emitted by the plasma?

    Regards,
    Marco.

  1023. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    Yes the T has been obtained by spectrometry.
    The max T it reaches is about 3,000 K.
    We try to obtain a clean spectrum, but it is very difficult. Obviously impossible in the situation we were in Stockolm, due to the light from the big screen.
    Sorry, I cannot give information to the other questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1024. Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    congratulations for the great demo you did of your invention. The world is no more the same. I was waiting this moment for years and now that it’s happened it seems to me impossible that everything still go on the same way. I was expecting a great emphasis and a global media coverage. First pages in newspapers and TV news and things like that. But …. nothing! Mah?! We must be patient Andrea, the world don’t really understand the relevance of this event. Wasn’t there scientific reporters attending the demo in Stockholm ?
    Another technical question, you stated that the QuarkX was at 30% of its potential and it was reported a COP near 500. Does it means that the COP con be over 1500 when QuarkX operates at its full power ?

    God Bless you
    Marco Serra

  1025. Andrea Rossi

    Marco Serra:
    We want not to have a great emphasis while the product is not on the shelves. Then we will apply the necessary force to the emphasis.
    Yes, the COP raises proportionally with the percentage of power.
    Thank you for your kind attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1026. Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    You said to Italo R. “That the power of the E-Cat is proportional to the number of modules. The heat dissipated by the control system decreases. In a nutshell: increasing the number of modules the heat produced by the E-Cat increases proportionally, while the heat to be dissipated ( or recovered ) from the control box decreases substantially.”.

    ASSUMING THAT:
    1. The cross-sectional area of the electrical conductor from the control unit to the E-Cat QX cluster remains the same.

    2. The temperature difference between the QX reactors and the control unit actually remains the same (in the region of 2600 degrees C), even though more power is generated in the cluster.

    3. As you increase the number of QX elements in the cluster, you will also increase the size of the surface area of the heat exchanger between the QX reactors and the load,

    THEN:
    4. The ratio of the sizes of the two heat conducting surface areas, (Heat Exchanger:Control Unit Conductor X-section) becomes greater as you add more QX elements, more so as you add a very large number of elements.

    5. This has the effect that even though the level of heat in the control unit would remain the same, the proportion of heat travelling back to the control unit would decrease with respect to the total heat generated by the whole E-Cat QX system.

    6. However, if you do then manage to cool down the control unit, the temperature difference will also increase again and the flow of lost heat will increase proportionately. So, would it still be best to try to prevent the heat being lost from the E-Cat at source, or as you said, to utilize any lost heat usefully?

    7. Is this roughly how you see the situation?

    Thoughtful Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

    Martyn Aubrey:
    Thank you for you insight. I cannot comment.

  1028. Colin Watters

    Dr Mr Rossi,

    Just for information it takes about 3 years to design a new car and put it into production. Details here..

    https://www.quora.com/Automobile-Design-How-long-does-it-take-to-develop-a-car-design-from-scratch

    Timescales are much shorter in the electronics industry. For something as complicated as a DVD player or TV box it’s possible to go from prototype to automated production in under 1 year.

  1029. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    You must distinguish the specific situations if you want to make a serious analysis.
    One thing is to make a new car or a new electronic device in the context of an already well consolidated industry that already produces massively cars or electronic devices. A completely different situation is to make an industry to produce massively a new apparatus starting from zero. By the way, your information is very particular, because the CEO of one of the major car manufacturer of the world told me that to put on the road a new concept car it takes between 10 and 20 years ( from a consolidated car manufacturer ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Congratulations! Even more exciting, the industrialization that
    you now arrange, with an accelerated schedule. The choice of venue
    for the presentation was of an exceptionally high caliber, world
    class. The attendees were very respectful during the
    presentation, your best presentation ever (but we still love Sergio

  1032. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    What you have achieved so far with the Quark seems phenomenally amazing: thank you for all the work you have put into the device! Moreover, I expect that the E-Cat QX has far more potential than mentioned in the presentation.

    Are you familiar with the phenomenon of EVOs (Exotic Vacuum Objects) intensely studied by Ken R. Shoulders, a holder of many patents, a man who was once named scientist of the year, and is known as the “Father of Micro-electrons” for his earlier work?

    Ken Shoulders

    http://www.infinite-energy.com/iemagazine/issue61/chargeclusters.html

    http://www.keelynet.com/shoulders/pdfs.html

    Paper on Ectons

    https://hal.inria.fr/file/index/docid/255563/filename/ajp-jp4199707C407.pdf

    The same phenomenon he studied is also referred to by other names such as high density charged clusters, ectons (by several Russian teams), micro-ball lightning, condensed plasmoids, and a few others. Basically, they represent a well documented phenomenon in which electrons can overcome their mutual repulsion and cluster together in close proximity. They exist throughout nature and are at the heart of many different phenomena. A simple explanation of one method by which they can be produced is by a discharge between electrodes. The ultra high electrical gradients that occur at surface irregularities and protrusions on a cathode produce very high fields and current densities. A series of events take place, over a precariously short time-frame, that leads to a sudden temperature rise and a micro-explosion of the region of high field density. This releases not only a spray of particles but also a high density of electrons in a small volume. A portion of these electrons can cluster together, overcoming their repulsion, and form an EVO or “charged cluster.”

    These charged clusters can behave quite anomalously. For instance, they often pull in and encapsulate positive ions from the environment or particles from their creation. Ken R. Shoulders and others have been able to document that for no additional input kinetic energy beyond what would be required to accelerate the electron cluster, the “screened” or “shielded” interior heavy ion (such as a number of protons as one example) can be hurled onto a target anode at high speeds. Upon impacting the target, the transported heavy ion can possess millions of electron-volts: enough energy to produce nuclear events and transmutations. Ken Shoulders and other teams were able to document such transmutations. In addition, the passage of the EVO or charged cluster through metals can leave a path in which matter seems to be de-molecularized, as if the electron bonds holding the lattice together had been disrupted. SEM images of these boreholes and resulting slag are available on the net.

    There are two additional mechanisms I’ve came across that could allow these charged clusters to produce nuclear reactions.

    First, is that when these EVOs (which can assume different geometric configurations) orient themselves into torus shapes the electrical attract to pull exterior ions inwards can become intense, to the point that the pull can impart millions of electron volts to the tractored ions. Basically, these torus shaped EVOs could be considered atom grinders as new ions are smashed against those already present in the interior. The very nature of the EVO shields any hard radiation from escaping this electric “singularity” and the KE produced by the interior nuclear reactions is released upon impact on the anode.

    Secondly, is that an EVO (perhaps with a proton at the core) could take the place of an electron in the orbit of a typical atom, reduce the barriers that inhibit nuclear reactions, and trigger LENR.

    I expect that the Quark is producing EVOs via one of many mechanisms: including emission from the cathode during “ecton” explosions, in the plasma itself due to pumping with waveforms, or in the nickel cathode when a high loading of nickel results in the production of interior cracks/fissures in the lattice triggering fracto-emission. Moreover, the bombardment of the cathode by protons and other ions could not only produce the high loading ratios but also the physical impulses required to produce interior cracking. Basically, several of these mechanisms could work together, self re-inforcing each other, to produce the enormous COPs produced by the Quark.

    Then, again, there could very well be other phenomenon at play: there could be more than one energy producing phenomena. But if EVOs are at play, it could explain some issues and yield even more possibilities. For example, the abnormal heating of your power supply (requiring active cooling). Also, if EVOs are being continuously created and destroyed, I expect a great deal of “longitudinal” — rather than traditional transverse — impulses to be emitted from your reactor. Instead of being idealy received by a traditionally oriented antenna, a long antenna positioned coaxially to the vector of propagation would optimally receive them. Or, with an antenna similar to what Nikola Tesla utilized, a circular metal sphere may intercept them. After reception, the power could be rectified in a number of ways and added to the output total.

    My guess is that there’s more of this longitudinal impulse “power” being emitted (which travels through virtually all matter without producing a counter EMF via Lenz Law because of a lack of a magnetic component) than the heat you are able to produce. I expect these impulses may be most intense directly behind the electrodes where EVOs may be impacting, on either side of your reactor.

    Again, if you’re not familiar with EVOs (charged clusters, ectons, charged plasmoids, etc) then please let me know and I can provide you with a multitude of links and papers.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day.

    Hank

    You posted “The heat dissipated by the control system decreases. In a nutshell: increasing the number of modules the heat produced by the E-Cat increases proportionally, while the heat to be dissipated ( or recovered ) from the control box decreases substantially.”

    Are you saying that for the same module power setting, increasing the number of modules from 3 to 100, the total power consumed (and dissipated or recovered) from the Control box will decrease?

  1039. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    I am saying exactly what I said.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1040. Julian

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Again about the Stockolm test at the IVA of Nov 24th:
    The fact that during the operation with the dummy with the 1 Ohm R instead of the Ecat the voltage of the circuit remained moreless the same indicates that the Ecat did not have resistance, therefore to measure the energy consumed by the Ecat finding the voltage across the 1 Ohm R also during the operation with the Ecat and eventually apply the Ohm equations is correct, because that is a way to measure indicated in all the manuals.
    Godspeed,

    @Steven N. Karels,

    I think the energy dissipated by the control system will remain more or less the same, independent of the fact if only 3 E-Cats or up to 100 are controlled by it, so the net produced useful energy of the E-cats increases proportional to the number used, while the energy dissipated by the control system will remain more or less the same (not reduced I think). But, of course, this means that the ratio of dissipated energy by the control system per net energy produced, decreases when the number of E-cats increases.

    Kind Regards,

  1050. Mattias Andersson

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems to me that a substantial amount of R&D involves the development of the controller unit. Do you anticipate that this will be an area that needs to be explored further within the scientific research community?

    Kind regards,
    Mattias

    Will there ever be a time when the little guys, like myself, will ever be able to invest with you in the development of your e-cat line of products?

    Dear Dr. Rossi, you wrote:

    “…The increase of power is proportional to the quantity of modules…”

    in the Stockholm demo the controller produced about 60 watts of heat to be dissipated for feeding 3 modules.
    But does it mean that feeding 100 modules, the power to be dissipated would be about 60/3 * 100 = 2000 watts?

    Kind Regards,

    Italo R.

  1053. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    No. I said that the power of the E-Cat is proportional to the number of modules. The heat dissipated by the control system decreases. In a nutshell: increasing the number of modules the heat produced by the E-Cat increases proportionally, while the heat to be dissipated ( or recovered ) from the control box decreases substantially.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Remember that all the heat dissipated by the control box can be recovered with COP 1.

  1054. John C Evans

    Dear Andrea:
    As you move toward industrial applications of the Qx have you defined the optimum output, x volume of water at a given temperature or x volume of dry steam at a given pressure and temperature?
    Good luck and thank you.

    Andrea,

    You mention that you can control up to around 100 of your QX devices with the same controller that you used in the demonstration. If you were to drive that many devices would your power supply produce appreciably more heat or would it be roughly the same amount of heat as was produced driving the three QX ecats in the demo. I am very happy to hear that your demonstration has produced potential associations or partnerships that will accelerate the industrialization of your technology.I can only say, the sooner, the better. Congratulations!

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When the E-Cat QX will be industrialized, how much do you the COP will be affected by the consume of the control box?
    Cheers
    John

  1059. Andrea Rossi

    John:
    The COP will not be affected by the control system by means of a heat recovery system. The recovery system can recover the heat dissipated by the circuitry. Without the heat recovery system not more that 10%.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    The video is very interesting. I do have one question about something you said on it:

    ” Because the real dimensions of the reactor are 0.08 mm of diameter, and 0.6 mm in length.”

    Surely it is not so small! Maybe you meant cm?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  1067. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    It has been a direct result of the Stockolm event: it has been attended by very high level persons, either from the scientific and the industrial point: the IVA conference room acted just like a reactor containing strongly reactive elements…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1068. Dear Dr. Rossi:

    The COP of 550 you demonstrated at Stockholm with the E-Cat QX at 30% power was amazing!
    Do you anticipate running the commercial E-Cat QX units at greater than 30% power or will you limit their operation to 30% for safety reasons? Does the internal fuel last significantly longer if the E-Cat QX is run at 30% power versus 100% power?

    Looking forward to more good news from the Leonardo Corporation in 2018.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  1069. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G.Zavela:
    Thank you for your kind attention.
    During the test at the IVA I put the power at 30% to put the probability of breaks at zero point. The product will perform better, also because now we are focusing on the industrialization and this means also eliminate the overheating problem. We are working along two lines: 1- industrialization of the product, 2- industrialization of the production. These two processes normally are completed up to 10 years ( the CEO of a car industry told me up to 20 years), but we think it will take less than 2 years in our case. I hope one year, but it will be rude.
    The charge was standard.

    May me ask some questions:
    a) are you working on international certification for the QX ?
    b) if yes, have you any idea how long does it take ?
    b) you mentioned now you are focused on industrialization, what is the first market you will approch ? Industrial or Consumer ?

    Many thanks in advace. I whish you big things.

    Dear Andrea,

    congrats for the astonishing results presented on Nov 24th.

    A COP over 500 is really an achievement I couldn’t expect even if I am following your work since the beginnings !

    In order to solve the issue of the control system cooling did you consider (or think it is feasible) to use other means to ignite the plasma like a pulsed laser beam ?

    Warmest Regards,

    A self-critical attitude can be stimulating and can produce a high level of self-correction.
    But still I think that sometimes you really exaggerate. I would expect a bit more mildness from a scientist and entrepreneur with your track record.

    The negative reactions and the attacks in all possible ways, were also a form of respect: they see you as an avid opponent.

    Your presentation was a hit.

    Now it’s up to the radar technicians and the microprocessor experts.

    Why the spectrometry did not work?

    Jack:
    My fault. I did not consider that a giant screen would have spread too much light to allow the spectrometer focus on the eye of the E-Cat. I never experienced this situation and stupidly did not understand it by myself. The light from the big screen interfered with the optic line between the reactor and the optic fibers end.
    I had to bring with me some black cover to hide the light of the screen from the spectrometer.

    Carissimo Andrea,

    oltre ad averla vista in ottima forma e molto attento a tutto quanto succedeva intorno al “SUO” QX
    ho avuto l’impressione che in realtà ciò che Lei (Voi) sapete sul Qx sia già ben oltre a quello mostratoci
    nel video girato a Stoccolma. Quanto detto deriva anche dall’estrema sicurezza con cui l’ing. Fabiani si muoveva
    e commentava.
    Sono sicuro che presto ci saprà stupire con altre grosse novità.

    Grazie e buon lavoro.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I am the CTO of an important company in the aerospace field. I am following your publications and tests since the Bologna event of January 2011 and I think the test at the IVA of Stockolm has been a masterpiece. The measurements made are all fully satisfactory to us and it is clear to me that you made a technological miracle. I am reading in the blogosphere many comments of amateurs lecturing about this and that without knowledge of the matter, but I can assure you that our experts I am talking with are extremely impressed, even shocked, by what they saw in the video, that we scrutinized second by second.
    We can help you to resolve the overheating of the control box easily.
    We will contact you next Monday, so you will know me. I cannot expose myself in a blog.

    Hello DR Rossi

    This is part of a comment from
    Thomas Kaminski on ECat World.

    It is clear that the controller is pretty fancy — however, over the years, I have seen large motor control racks be replaced by small devices as high voltage IGBT’s replaced older components. The efficiencies have also gone way up, reducing thermal cooling requirements. I suspect that the power electronics industry could help Rossi with the controller size and efficiency. He needs to find the right partner. He might try this consortium:

    https://wempec.wisc.edu/

    I have taken courses from them — excellent content in power electronics.

    Thought it might interest you.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    What has impressed me more about the test made in the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering is the consumption of electricity actually supplied to the E-Cat. The dummies gave evidence that the E-Cat has a resistance more or less equal to the resistance of the copper- actually plasma is a very good conductor- therefore your measurement system is correct. You got a stunning COP of 500 or more.
    Fantastic.
    Infinite congratulations.

    Congratulations on a successful demonstration! In your presentation you mentioned that the controller has cooling problems. Have you thought about submersing the entire control system in 3M’s Novec cooling fluid? See https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/novec-us/applications/immersion-cooling for more info and http://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/65495O/3mtm-thermal-management-fluids.pdf for properties of the different coolants. The liquid coolants are high voltage compatible, with a 0.1″ gap breakdown of around 40Kv.

    https://ecat.com/news/carl-oscar-gullstrom-working-with-theory-about-the-rossi-effect

  1112. Dear Andrea,
    The standard way to create a short high-voltage pulse (to ignite a plasma arc) is to load a capacitor to the wanted high voltage and then discharge it. Loading of the capacitor can be done slowly so it can be done by a small high-voltage source (commercial manufacturers: Picoelectronics, EMCO, or use custom-made “charge pump” systems https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_pump ). Another benefit is that the energy of the “shot” i.e. the energy of the capacitor, is precisely known (=0.5*C*V^2 where C=capacitance, V=voltage).

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    I very much enjoyed following the reports of and watching your presentation of the E-Cat QX.

    As always with these things a lot of answers were answered and of course also new ones arise. But it’s definitely moving forward incredibly.

    As a bystander and observer in this story It’s amazing to think some years back I would have been amazed to see a basic large device Even produce COP 3. Whoever produced it. Even a cop of 1.001 would have made me smile from a scientific curiosity point of view. But now we are talking about devices that can produce COPs in the hundreds and thousands. and thes are tiny devices tat can be combined and scaled an all kinds of concievable ways. It’s astonishing. And easy to forget where we were in our hopes and expectation even a few years ago. And you talk about a Moores Law for LENR devices… My mind boggles where we wil be in a few years time.

    About the presentation may I ask you about the spectra measurements? If they are confidential at this time I understand.

    1. Was the spectra measurement of the 0.08mm * 6mm plasma in the reactor itself?
    2. Or was it from a Secondary plasma around the reactor.
    3. Or was it from a separate component in the device tharpt surrounded the reactor that radiated the heat.
    4. If 3 did the secondary component generated its own plasma in surrounding gas.

    5.Are the dimensions of the reactor given the dimensions of the plasma in the reactor gap.
    6. Or the whole device. (I suppose is correct)
    7. If 5 is correct can you give some dimensions of the whole device… Is this the same as those previously mentioned here and elsewhere before the presentation.

    A lot of questions, which I must apologise for. I don’t want to swamp you in questions.

    All the best with the way forward. I hope have fast progress with resolving the thermal control issues and miniturisation of the controller. I have the feeling it is remarkable in its own right and may have other intersting uses in power control and distribution for all kinds of reactive devices in the future… May be even how how power is distributed. who knows…

    Good luck to all the team… I was happy to see Fabiani taking part again… It’s a good team

    Best Regards

    Andrew ( second answer ):
    You made me curious and now I had the time to watch with focused attention the part of the video you refer to. Please you too watch with attention the segment between 2h30′ and 2h32′: it is very interesting about your issue. Before I open the air window, that is on the side of the control box in front of me, Fabiani says to me absolutely nothing either before or during the action of opening the air window; after the action is finished and the box has been lowered in normal position, Fabiani says me to turn the switch, and at that point I go to the side of the box at my right, where the switch is, and make the switching action.
    Just to be clear and precise.

  1126. andrew

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    You said you opened an air Window to help air circulating, but Fabiani clearly tells you to push a Switch. It’s clear from the audio… Can you clarify?

  1127. Andrea Rossi

    Andrew:
    When Fabiani is saying me to turn the switch, he refers to the switch that turns off and on the power. We had to turn off/on the power when we passed from calorimetry to spectrometry, and when we passed from spectrometry to dummy 1 Ohm and when we passed from the dummy with 1 Ohm to the dummy with 800 Ohms. It is obvious that when we had to substitute the components of the circuit we had to turn the power off, make the substitution and, after that, turn the power on again. The switch is in the right side of the control box from my point of view, left side from the point of view of the public. The air window is in my side of the box. The window gives access to the circuitry.
    When I opened the air window, obviously, Fabiani said nothing, because in that moment I was not operating with any switch.

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    There are so many people following your story, cheering for you, supporting you, praing for you, and yet the only thing you have given back in these last years are some ‘Rossi says’ that most of the time are followed by ‘someone says not ‘ . And I mean.. you don’t owe them anyhing, you are not supposed to satisfy the general public curiosity just in exchange of some sort of cybernetic support. But seriously, we are not talking about telenovelas curiosity, we are talking about people worried about the future of energy, the future of this planet, the future of their children, because hey, don’t try to give me the ‘all energy sources will be integrated’ joke, your tech. is kind of last hope.
    And I understand your worries about the competition, I understand the very long time needed to a such unconventional tech to be developed properly.
    But there are soooo many ways you could put an end to the skeptics chatters, that you could prove without any doubt that your tech does what ‘Rossi says’ . And yet you don’t do it.
    Once again it’s just Secret customers secret deals, secret results of reports..
    You are a good man I’m sure of that. Just think that it would cost you nothing to give something back to those that have been defending your name for this long time

    Andrew:
    When Fabiani is saying me to turn the switch, he refers to the switch that turns off and on the power. We had to turn off/on the power when we passed from calorimetry to spectrometry, and when we passed from spectrometry to dummy 1 Ohm and when we passed from the dummy with 1 Ohm to the dummy with 800 Ohms. It is obvious that when we had to substitute the components of the circuit we had to turn the power off, make the substitution and, after that, turn the power on again. The switch is in the right side of the control box from my point of view, left side from the point of view of the public. The air window is in my side of the box. The window gives access to the circuitry.
    When I opened the air window, obviously, Fabiani said nothing, because in that moment I was not operating with any switch.

    Hello Andrea,

    One question about the cooling system: have you considered using Peltier cells?

    Thanks.

    Hello DR Rossi

    I seen this comment from E48 on ECat World
    Blog.
    Engineer48
    11 hours ago
    Just before Mats starts the tests with different resistor values, Rossi lifts the cover on the White control box and apparently switches a switch or two:

    E cat QX presentation 24 November 2017 — disq.us
    Which to this observer casts a big shadow over the validity of the tests Mats conducted.

    Apparently Mats did not see this occur as he was looking at the data from Hurley.

    As Rossi did not explain what he did nor why he did it, to me this killed any credibility on the input power claims.

    Could you comment on it?
    Enjoyed your QX demonstration.
    Regards
    Sam

  1132. Andrea Rossi

    Sam:
    I checked what you say, it is between the time 2h 30′ and 2h 31′.
    I opened an air window to help the air circulation since when the E-Cat has been turned off the cooling system was disconnected. After 2 hours of work and after the operation of the spectrometer without cooling circulation in the heat exchanger I wanted to help the hot air out.
    This has nothing to do with the measurements we were making.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congratulations on the successful E-Cat QX demo! You have mentioned in the past possibly partnering with third party heat-based engines. Have you considered Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc.? They have developed an efficient heat-based engine that has won several awards from prominent science magazines and have contracts in the defense industry. They claim that their engine can use any heat source as fuel such as solar or syngas, and they have talked publicly of leveraging LENR in the past. http://m.marketwired.com/press-release/cyclone-power-technologies-delivers-engine-militarization-fsds-releases-2017-q1-worldwide-otc-pink-cypw-2229112.htm

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Some questions:

    – Is the output of the “black box” supply floating ? (=not connected to Earth). Inputs of TBS1052B oscilloscope are not isolated, then probe’s ground makes the 1 Ohm resistor to be refered to the Earth.

    – Can we summarize the situation by saying that a roughly 10mW injected at the entrance raises progressively the temperature of the core to 2600 °C ?

    I take this opportunity to wish you a complete cure for your skin cancer, forza !

    Regards,

    Michel

    Dear Andrea, Thank you for your reply to my last post. I am not here to make your life difficult or to discredit you, but what you have said in your last response to me is not possible according to my calculations and e=mc2 therefore I believe you have made a mistake – either the e-cat Qx reactor is bigger eg 0.8mm x 6mm, or it can’t release 20W or it doesn’t last for 1 year. We don’t know the density of your reactor but we know that it contains nickel – 9 kg/L and liAlH4 – density 1 kg /L. For argument sake lets assume the whole reactor is Nickel and has a density of 9kg/L. The reactor you describe is 0.08mm diameter x 0.6 mm = 0.003mm cubed in volume, even if it was pure nickel at a density of 9kg / L,= a mass of 0.003x 9kg x 0.000001 L = 0.000000027 kg of mass using E=MC2 then 0.000000027kg x 300,000,000 x 300,000,000 ( c2 ) = 2,440,000,000 joules if converted entirely to energy. 20 W x 3600 seconds x 24 hours x 365 days = 630,720,000 joules. So if the reactor was pure nickel 630,720,000 / 2,440,000,000 = 25.8 % of the mass would need to be converted to energy to work as you describe !! I don’t believe this is possible and this figure would go up if we take into account that the reactor is not pure nickel and has LiAlH4 which has a much lower density and thus the reactors mass is actually less than the mass in the calculations. Sorry if I have made a mistake. All the best.

  1139. Hi Andrea, congratulations on your demo. You state the actual reactor component is minuscule- 0.08mm diameter x 0.6 mm. In the past you have said that each ecat QX can produce energy for 1 year before being exhausted. My previous understanding was the Ecat QX was approximately 1 mm diameter x 20mm. Are you still claiming that the Ecat QX 0.08mm x 0.6mm is able to realease energy for approximately 1 year ? All the best !

  1142. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congrats on a successful demo. However, I wish that you had demonstrated the same with the 800 Ohm resister in series with the eCat reactor. The demonstration could have proceeded with:
    a. The 800 Ohm resister shunted across it – resulting in the basic test configuration.
    b. Then the eCat reactor could be shunted across for the 0 Ohm test configuration.
    c. Then the shunt across the 800 Ohm resistor removed and the shunt across the eCat removed for the 800 Ohm test configuration.

    No change in waveform should have occurred. You would have made only one configuration change per step. No long dead time reconfiguring the experimental setup.

    It would have been nice to measure the total input power and to have demonstrated a 3 eCat, 5 eCat and 11 eCat reactor configurations. Once stable thermal output had been achieved, the additional time demonstrated little new information. With three different eCat reactor configurations, one could back out the effect of the power controller through linear regression techniques.

    The pump rate could have been adjusted to handle the different eCat configurations for a constant delta temperature.

    Also, if you had measured the temperature of the pump output, your would not have to disassemble the pump to show there was no heating within the pump. Demonstrations tend to be more meaningful when they go smoothly and with minimal required assumptions. Still, it was a successful demonstration. Good job.

  1143. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your opinion and for your attention to our demo.

  1144. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea, With a view from a distance, I would dare to think that analog signal detection and integration might be enough. Lightning fast sampling is then no longer necessary.

    If you also have a group of different oscillators that you can send their power to the QX as required, you can only manage that link according to the integrals of the detectors via a computer. Then the computer has to process much less.

    In my profession I also see a draconian increase in computers and communication interfaces, for sometimes simple things that we used to solve with much less resources.

    If there is an electric surplus somewhere, you can always stock it.

    Nice presentation !

    Best Regards,
    Koen

  1148. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for the QX presentation yesterday. One thing you could do next time, without revealing any secrets, is to first feed the water from the pump into the control box and use if for cooling the components there, and then feed the water into the reactor. By using a third thermocouple to measure the water temperature right befor the reactor it is easy to add the delta T over the control box and delta T over the reactor.
    Then you can use a powermeter on the cable feeding the control box.
    Just google “CPU water cooler” to find components suitable to mount in the control box for water cooling.
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    First of all:
    Congrats for Your big sucsess!
    And many Thanks for Your quick answer to my question.

    After the impressive demo many followers speculate about the source of the heat in the controls.

    Do You have a hint for us what the reason may be, after the possibiliy of heat traveling trouh the wires was excluded?

  1150. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I found all the answers to my questions in the new video (good quality) on Youtube.
    I understand the input current is not just DC as i thought, so an oscilloscope is effectively more suitable for observing high frequency components of the current across the 1 ohm shunt resistor.
    Without betraying a secret, can you simply explain how you went from COP x6 (old Ecat) to x488 for the QX ?

    Regards,

    Michel

  1152. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    1- to do what I have done
    2- it has been explained . What you saw is partial report. Please watch a more complete report (you tube ” Ecat Stockolm” or Ecatworld )
    3- we had an oscilloscope
    4- thank you for your encouragement to our Team!
    Warm Regards,

    Hi Andrea:

    I am hoping that, when the full video becomes available, a link to it will be provided on the blog right here.

    Second, from what I have seen of the presentation so far, it appears you have made another profound new discovery, which may be worth more to humanity than the Ecat. How did you grow all that new hair?!

    All the best,

    Rodney.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I just watch a video of the QX presentation on the “ecatworld” website, but the sound was very weak, so it was hard to understand what people said.

    Could you clarify some details:

    – What was the purpose of the presentation ?

    – On a slide, the QX input current is low enough to put a true RMS ammeter in series : why measuring voltage accross a 1 Ohm resistor to get the current ?

    – On the same slide, i see no RMS voltmeter at the QX inputs ?

    From what i understood, the COP is impressive, surely a great success for you and your team !

  1168. Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    Some more questions, regarding the test:
    1) The three ECats were in series, or in parallel?
    2) I assume that there are some metal electrodes that are in contact with the ECat, that is a small elongated conductor similar to a piece of hair. What material is (the electrodes)?
    3) How are positioned the electrode? I mean: if the ECat is a small cylinder of 0.6mm heigth and 0.08mm diameter, the electrodes are in contact with the bases?
    4) Is the ECat polarized or not? I mean: if you invert the polarity and so the current flow (starting from a cold ECat), it works the same? What if you let the current flow perpendicularly the cylinder axis or diagonally? In short, is the ECat anysotropic, so that it can be made a sphere? If it can be made in sphere or peeble shape, then you can throw a bunch of Ecat in a bowl and let the current flow between the two extremes, like if the ECats were a bunch of pellets in a wood stove or a bunch of peebles in a peeble nuclear plant… So probabily the delta V could be much higher than few millivolt and you can use a 10-20V/1A waveform generator for thousands of ECats!

    Regards,
    Marco

  1169. Andrea Rossi

    You are right, but too complex to be accepted easily, so we preferred the more conservative way: it is just…enough.

    Jenny:
    Thank you for your feeling: the final whisper came from the solace after several days of extreme tension.
    Notwithstanding the long period of tests and the 5 Sigma reached, I was afraid that something for some unforeseeable reason could go wrong. Between a success and a catastrophe there can be just a whisper.

  1172. Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    At about 1:28:00 of the video, there is an extreme close-up of the reactor. When the relais is turned on, starting the 3 seconds pulse train, a flash can be seen near the electrode. You have put black tape to cover, but a small fraction of the light, quite white-bluish, as you said many time ago, can be seen…

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Congratulations to you and your team for the immense demo of Stockolm. I appreciated the genial application of a dummy of 1 Ohm and a dummy of 800 Ohms, to proof the obvious fact that the plasma is a conductor, since with the dummies instead of the Ecat we saw that the resistance of the copper was the same of the plasma, since with 1 Ohm the voltage was moreless the same, while with the 800 Ohm dummy we saw that the source was not an I-constant source. This was genial.
    Congratulations for the clarity of the measurements.
    And now…Godspeed to the industrialization !

    You have discussed before that the demo would be doable with batteries as the only sorce. Would such a configuration have the same need for massive cooling?

  1179. Andrea Rossi

    Sommer:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1180. Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    I see the problem for the control box: if the ECat has low resistance, it requires low voltage to have less than one ampere. This is very difficult to obtain with high efficiency from high voltage. The current is also pulsed, so a switching power supply must have a very high sample frequency, not feasible if Mats Lewans calculations of 100KHz is accurate. I think that the high heat of the control box is because it’s a linear circuit, an amplifier, that has awful efficiency if it must supply low voltage abd high current…

    You can put in series tens or hundreds of ECat-QX, like christmas bulbs, to increase the required voltage and use a more efficient power supply that must only provide pulsed voltage with a more reasonable value, in the order of 10-20 volts… This can be done with a normal linear circuit, morelike an audio amplifier, with efficiency of 30-40% depending on the pulse waveform.

    Also putting the ECats in series eliminates the 1 Ohm resistance and so also this loss of power…

    Regarsd,
    Marco.

  1181. Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    A quick note while watching your video.
    The peak current flowing through the ECat is 0.28A. The duty cycle of the driving current is 3/7. But the current is also pulsed, so the mean power is well below .28^2, that you are using for the fast power calculation at 36:00. You have at least the 3/7 factor. But also another factor given by the fact that the current is still pulsed in the 3/7 of the cycle. So the power is well below 0.08W (.28^2), probabily well below 0.035W (.08*3/7), with an output power of 15W and rising, with a COP of at least 400.
    Excuse me if later in the video you gave the precise numbers, but while watching the video i urged to write you some considerations…

    Regards,
    Marco.
