    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    Have the people who suppress your technology ever explained to you why they want it that way?

    Never buy a quantum computer without an appropriate virus scanner!

    And how do we protect Artificial Intelligence from Artificial Corruption?

    Somewhere in a distant past, people have chosen a wrong path. In view of the freedom of man to make choices, (Genesis, damn!) We will have to recursively tackle all past mistakes. It does not surprise me that many are looking for a virgin planet somewhere far away in the universe.

    I just planned to send you an email to ask you to become a dealer / seller of the heat that your appliances make. Given the daily hostile fire that you are experiencing, I will burn my fingers to that, I fear.

    Koen, (which according to name experts means “brave.” Unfortunately, these too die sometimes more quickly than desired, unless they wear a suit of armor – or Harness ??- adapted to the circumstances)

  3. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Since the event on Jan 31st, can you say which of the following you have done?

    a) Responded to inquiries from potential customers.
    b) Made agreements with new customers.
    c) Built E-Cat SK plants for new customers.
    d) Delivered new E-Cat SK plants to new customers.
    e) Monitored E-Cat SK installations remotely.

    Many thanks, and best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  4. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    a) yes
    b) on course
    c) on course
    d) on course
    e) yes
    After these 18 days from the presentation of January 31st I can say that momentous events happened that are strongly reinforcing our situation. This allows me to confirm that the presentation of http://www.ecatskdemo.com has been very successful and that our target has been fully reached in perfect equilibrium with our possibilities.
    Thanks also to the magnificent work made by you and Thomas Florek. Before the presentation , if you remember, I told you both ” Acland at the piano, Florek at the guitar and concertina, Rossi at the drums: if the Ecat doesn’t work, we have a plan B”: it appears the plan B will not be necessary.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  5. George Dvorak

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Considering the importance of your discovery, I think it is important to diversify the manufacturing locations: where are you organizing the production of the Ecat?
    George Dvorak

    George Dvorak:
    Are you parent of the great musicist? I listened to the”New World Symphony” hundreds of times…
    Answer: USA, Scandinavia, Japan.

  7. Dear Andrea,
    Just for the record, I understood that you meant “harnessed” etc., that they were not a spelling errors. I guess sometimes a non-native understands another non-native better, because both have similar deficiencies in language.

    Pekka Janhunen:
    He,he,he…besides, the world is united by the different ways to speak and sing English, so this beautiful language is in continuous evolution, therefore leaves us room for inventive neologisms.

  9. Elsa Keppner

    Dear Andrea,
    I watched http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Observing the plasma I got the idea that you continue to change the opoles and it is this that makes the “ballerina” dance; am I right?

  11. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Readers, Andrea,
    I have just recently been reading up on virtual particles as described on revolve.com. Quote “virtual particles only exist temporarily as they are exchanged between ordinary particles”. This statement I find is misleading because I believe there is nothing given or received in the creation of a virtual particle, that is to say virtual particles are formed by forces alone. The virtual particle is a creation of spin between the positive and the negative charge. When two particles spin in the same direction a void is created between and into which a creation occurs i.e. an image of the progenitors/virtual particle. When constructed it spins in a counter direction, contains its own identity due to its oscillating feature, another product of its progenitors. Its substance I believe is from an external source that serves as a buffer zone between its progenitors so as to maintain a viable system of existence or you could say a created life force involving three identifiable aspects not two. This creation in the case of the E-cat represents a life force that benefits due to the soft free energy that it produces by the decay of the constructed virtual particles. No doubt some people would refute this information especially those that have denied a demonstration of a mechanism labeled a ‘Unifying field oscillator’ in both universities and government research establishments where it was able to demonstrate that which I have described. This mechanism has been acknowledged as before its time. Only in physics, I believe, such a statement could be made with the sole purpose of trying to prevent future understanding and progress in our much needed developing world, especially with our reliance upon energy and the available E Cat technology, able to provide that which is so desperately needed. Regards Eric Ashworth
    P.S. As I have previously stated I know nothing of nuclear physics but I do believe the mechanical parallels the nuclear with regards energy interaction.

  13. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Thank you for the corrections…but I really meant HARNESSED, not harassed…like horses harnessed…; besides: DYNOSAURS are dinosaurs that work in the energy field, from DYNAMO!
    I prefer not to correct, but thank you for the intent: please do also in future help me to correct my Italian-English ( we call it Italish ), albeit, in this case, it was just art-licensed English.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  14. Dear Andrea,

    Where does the E-cat energy come from, in your opinion? If we list the options, since the source cannot be chemical, it must be either some Nuclear process or some uNclear process. Among Nuclear processes, one can make a division into processes where the weak interaction plays a role (protons change to neutrons or vice versa) and where it doesn’t play a role (that is, only electromagnetic and strong interactions play a role, protons stay protons and neutrons stay neutrons and they are somehow exchanged between nuclei). My favourite answer to this question is “I don’t know”, but how about you?
    best regards, /pekka

    Pekka Janhunen:
    I have written a paper that is an update of our theoretical R&D:

    Caro Rossi
    Sono un fisico teorico troppo avanti negli anni per pensare di poter affrontare l’enorme lavoro che le nuove conoscenze della fisica stanno dischiudendo.
    Credo che nei prossimi decenni l’interpretazione della realtà sarà completamente rivoluzionata per lasciare il posto ad una visione che sorpasserà di molto non solo l’attuale fisica classica e relativistica ma anche la fisica quantistica e le più nuove ed audaci teorie. Come al solito la realtà quando si rivela sorpassa qualsiasi immaginazione .
    Infiniti indizi sono già stati sparsi nel lavoro di migliaia di laboratori, perlopiù dimenticati o non compresi: semplicemente non eravamo pronti. Ma ora si stanno rivelando altri spiragli, molti stanno lavorando a questo perché è evidente che l’attuale fisica non soddisfa più.
    Tu stai aprendo una piccola finestra ed anche altri stanno cominciando a vedere i nuovi panorami anche se in modo nebbioso ed incerto; manca per ora lo scatto in avanti risolutivo che illumina e rende chiaro il grande quadro d’insieme.
    Sei d’accordo che siamo alle porte di una grande rivoluzione o pensi ( intuisci )che tutto si risolverà in un ampliamento della fisica attuale nella salvaguardia delle basi già note ?
    Un affettuoso augurio.
    ————————————————————————–
    Dear Rossi
    I am a theoretical physicist too late in the years to think to face the enormous work that the new knowledges of physics are opening up.
    I believe that in the coming decades the interpretation of reality will be completely revolutionized to give way to a vision that will surpass not only the current classical and relativistic physics but also quantum physics and the newest and most daring theories. As usual, what it is revealed by reality, surpasses always any imagination.
    Infinite clues have already been scattered in the work of thousands of laboratories, mostly forgotten or not understood: we simply were not ready. But now there are more glimpses, many are working on this because it is clear that current physics no longer satisfies.
    You are opening a small window and others are beginning to see the new landscapes even if in a hazy and uncertain way; missing for now the decisive forward shot that illuminates and makes clear the big picture.
    Do you agree that we are at the gates of a great revolution (especially in subatomic physics) or do you think (foresee-intuit) that everything will be resolved in an expansion of the current physics in the safeguarding of the already known bases?
    An affectionate greeting.

  24. Andrea Rossi

    E. Volpe:
    Substantially I agree with you. I think we are at the eve of a Renaissance of Physics; we had with Newton the antique physics era, with Einstein, Fermi the modern Physics Era, then we had the Middle Age of the Physics, limited by the financing oriented within the limits allowed by military and politic interests that have enslaved the R&D where there was money or power to share; during this Middle Age all the researchers, inventors who dared to find the nonsense hidden in certain areas of the guru-consolidated standard, where multiple dei ex machinis had to be invented to cover titanic holes of logic and mathematics, have been attacked with a brutality that in some case has been slandering; very intelligent physics professors have been harnessed and limited in their careers simply cutting funds to their researches, to give money to finance R&D that have produced nothing ( think to the so called Hot Fusion ). I personally am attacked on daily basis by trolls paid to disseminate false information about my past ( fortunately my team has been able to arrive to the industrialized level notwithstanding the daily fire that hits our ship ). Now we are at the eve of a Renaissance thanks to the fact that reality is giving evidence that the king is naked.

  25. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As you are found of saying – “an integrated solution.” Desalinization is needed where salt or other impurities are present in the source water. There is a program in India to pump the cold, deep sea water up to a ship to condense fresh, drinkable water from the vapors of the warm, surface sea water. The cost is the electricity needed to pump the water.

    Imagine a large ship powered by eCat reactors to generate electricity for the needs of the ship and the pumps. The eCat reactor would be powered by solar cells (and batteries during darkness). The ship (or barge) is stationary as it pumps, fresh, potable water to the shore and to the thirsty cities.

    On-shore eCat powered electrical generation plants provide inexpensive electricity to pump the precious potable water to the rural area and to improve the quality of life of the citizens. These could also be solar/battery powered. All done with no carbon footprint.

    Other technologies (e.g., inverse osmosis, etc.) would be applied in other environments. Imagine! To dream, per chance to do?

  26. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Yes, these are interesting dreams. But the best available technology now is reverse osmosis, honestly.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  29. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    During the cold weather, was the E-Cat operating at maximum capacity to heat the industrial premises at 25 ° Celsius, or was it still possible to provide more heat?

    I wish you a lot of MW to install in the coming months
    Best regards and good health
    Raffaele

  30. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    The Ecat SK was and is at maximum power.
    Warm Regards,

  31. Richard

    Dr Rossi:
    About electron capture, I would add:
    Experimental Physics for Dummies: nobody has ever observed or measured any kind of electron capture by stable elements.
    Have a nice Sunday,
    Rick

  32. Andrea Rossi

    Richard:
    Obvious.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  33. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    I have not competence in desalinization, but, as far as I know, inverse osmosis is very cheap and is the worldwide technology.
    The Ecat is not a specific tool to make something specific, it is a generalistic tool: it makes heat, then with its heat you can make what you want. We sell the heat at a price, so it is the price that makes it fit or not for specific utilization.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  34. Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

    Dear Andrea!

    It is obvious that references to new scientific works of Russian authors sent to you show that there are true scientists in Russia who do not hold onto dogmas and prohibitions and for whom the criterion of truth is a scientific experiment and results of practical activity.

    With warm feelings,

    Irina and Vitaly Uzikovs

  35. Andrea Rossi

    Irina and Vitaly Uzikov:
    These references are important. Thank you very much for the links.

    Dear Andrea!

    Today I received two articles in Russian. One of them is published in the Open Access Library Journal, 3: e2833.
    http://dx.doi.ore/10.4236/oalib.1102833 :

    “Andrea Rossi’s Mysterious E-Cat and Unitary Quantum Theory”
    Leo G. Sapogini, Vladimir A. Dzhanibekc, Yuri A. Rvabov

    Abstract: The nature and mechanism of the origin of a huge amount of heat in Andrea Rossi’s megawatt installations, which can change the entire energy of civilization, is considered. The ongoing processes are new effects of the unitary quantum theory and are in no way connected with chemical or nuclear reactions and phase transitions.

    Another article:
    http://www.ijsciences.com/pub/issue/2018-06/

    International Journal of Sciences, Research Article, Volume 7-June 2018 (06), General Problems of Science for Pedestrian, Leo G. Sapogin, V. A. Dzhanibekov, Yu. A. Ryabov,

    “General Problems of Science for Pedestrians”
    Abstract: The article proposes a model of unitary quantum field theory, in which a particle is represented as a wave packet from waves of a certain unified field. The dispersion equation for the waves is chosen so that the packet periodically appears and disappears without changing the shape. This process is associated with a standard wave function. The equation of such a field is nonlinear and relativistically invariant.
    Under certain conditions, it is possible to obtain the Schrödinger, Dirac, and Hamilton-Jacobi equations from it.
    Many new experimental effects predict for both high and low energies.

    With deep respect and warm feelings,

    Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

  37. Andrea Rossi

    Irina and Vitaly Uzikov:
    Thank you for your very appreciated information. Thanks also to its deep cultural roots, Russia is contributing to the scientific renaissance that the LENR community is promoting in nuclear physics.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  38. Oscar

    DR Andrea Rossi:
    I noticed that in http://www.researchgate.com, where is published your last theoretical contribution ( https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions ) going to your profile in the list of your publication there is also the article you co-authored with Norman Cook on Arxiv “On the nuclear interactions underlying the heat production by the Ecat”: what is exactly your position respect the work of Norman Cook after your last publication?
    Oscar

  39. Andrea Rossi

    Oscar:
    My position is the same of always: the nuclear model of Prof Norman Cook is the sole that can be taken seriously in consideration and is the sole that puts remedy to the absurdities of the alternative models. The nuclear model of Norman Cook is a fundamental tool to exit the middle age of nuclear physics, that began in the fifties and is turning now into a scientific renaissance. Also thanks to the LENR.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  40. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    New Idea:

    I just read this article in Scientific American/Observations (See link below) about a proposal for an Energy/Water Corridor between the US and Mexico.

    At first I thought this idea was a bit crazy, as did the author of the article. But if energy costs can be kept down, while industrial, commercial and municipal developments can flourish – along with security on both sides of the border – something good could come out of all the attention to the US-Mexico border issue.

    https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/bold-plan-replace-the-border-wall-with-an-energy-water-corridor/

    1) The article stated that 600 MW is required to desalinate 2.3 Million Acre feet per year of Fresh water. (or 7.5 * 10^11 gallons/year).
    Assuming the project were started in the next year or two, would you consider using the current E-Cat SK system (about 20-25 kW) for a large
    scale developments, or would you wait until you can build and test a larger module e.g. 100 kW – 200 kW?

    2) How much energy would it really take to desalinate all this water? I don’t think it will happen if they just use wind turbines.

    Joseph Fine

  41. Bob

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Can you explain why you are ignoring the possibility that electron capture could be at the base of some type of LENR?

  42. Andrea Rossi

    Bob:
    Physics for dummies: electron capture is made only by atoms that have an excess of protons: all the atoms with an excess of protons are radioactive and in LENR cannot be used radioactive atoms. As far as I am aware of.
    Mathematics for dummies: to induce an electron capture from atoms that do not have an excess of protons needs about 750 keV ; 1 eV = 12 227 K
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  43. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    Just an observation. With a COP>50, there are those on the blogs who clamor for ever higher COP numbers.

    At the point of COP>50 is akin to filling your car up for 20 cents. The real cost now falls to paying your car payments. If you can’t handle a 20 cent fill up, probably you can’t afford a car to begin with. :-)

    Warm regards to you and your team,

    Dan C.

    On the top of the Ecat you can see a silver-black box attached to the Ecat in the left and a white box with a white cable seat in the right.
    The white box is the etyhernet hub, connected to a router by means of the white ethernet cable. The hub receives the information from the internet by means of the router and transmits them to the silver-black control panel connected with the circuitry inside the Ecat SK.

    Dear Andrea

    Thanks for sharing with us your Ballerina in the demonstration.

    How amazing it is to think we were glimpsing the dance of new understaings in physics..

    She surely deserves Carlen’s valentine….

    Thanks also for sharing the spectrum like many my minds a buzz about what it means and represents but it was wonderful to me at least to be able to see that thanks.

    May I ask how the spectrometer was setup.

    1. I suppose to prevent over heating of the device and prevent saturation of the sensor from the light source it was out side the device but looking through a small window rather inside the Heat exchanger cavity it self. Is this right or was it actually inside?

    If it was looking through a window like that was it close to that window or also distant from it in the room? If it was liking through a window .

    2. would you be able to say it’s size for example if the window is also 1 cm
    3. Would you be able to indicate the distance of the sensor from the window?

    All the best now for this venture moving forward and for your ballerina joining a ballet company… will she be the prima ballerina?

    Stepho

  60. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    1- it depends on what we mean by “inside”. The set up of the spectrometer has been made by an engineer who is a specialist of spectometry. He put the eye of the spectrometer adjacent to a window inside the external body of the Ecat, but outside the area of the rector, to allow a precise view on the focus we looked for, but, at the same time, as you correctly say, avoid overheating and saturation.
    2- we changed these measures, to compare the results. We also changed the position, to make other measurements that have not been published because confidential
    3- same as above
    The “ballerina” shown on http://www.ecatskdemo.com is by definition the prima ballerina, properly defined also “etoile”…I hope the first of a firmament.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  63. Eric Ashworth

    Hi Carlen and Andrea, With regards Andreas remarks with regards the ballerina and her having a zitterbewegung I agree entirely. what she is saying is look at me because it is the frequency of the vibration that provides the entity with its identity i.e. a stand alone unit in a field of energy. This vibrational frequency occurs on every event horizon because of a curve because there is no such thing as a straight line. This is something difficult to comprehend unless you think of energy contained within a sphere and the event horizon having a degree of thickness. This phenomena is really to do with pi and its two values one regarding physical geometry and the other regarding none physical energy or you could say the difference between the static and mobile mechanics of energy when comparing each. Pi actually has two values depending upon that which you are applying it. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Are you already using the remote system with the ecat in operation we saw on http://www.ecatskdemo.com ? If yes, how is it working ?
    GG

  68. Andrea Rossi

    GG:
    Yes, we started few days ago. So far works well. The main concern, obviously, are the internet defaults, but this issue is covered by the backup; I am very confident about the fact that the reverse engineering is practically impossible.

    you cited a paper of Celani: has it been important for the study of your publication?
    Thanks,

  77. Eva

    Dear Andrea,
    The astrophysic Angelo Adamo in his book “Pianeti tra le note” (Springer 2010) has written that some planets, like Jupiter, emit more thermal energy than they receive from the sun: do you think this could be the result of not man-induced LENR?
    Eva

  78. Andrea Rossi

    Eva:
    I do not think so: I am not an astrophysic, but I suppose that if a planet emits more energy than the sun radiates to it, the reason could be that the planet observed makes heat from nuclear or chemical reactions intrinsic in it. For example our planet, the Earth, emits from volcanoes thermal energy that comes from chemical reactions made in its core.

    B. For mobile applications

    C. Both

    2. What is the ecat power range (if any) for your present work with gas turbines.

    3. Is any information developed in the U.S. program to build a nuclear powered airplane of use in your present work with gas turbines.

    4. Are any present customers intending to use ecat heat for pavements (streets, sidewalks)?

    Dear Andrea,

    Would you keep us apprised of the milestones that you reach with customers? Such as, 10, 50, 100 customers signed contractual agreement. Or 10, 50, 100, 500 customers operating eCat full time. Or any other kind of customer related statistics you could share with us, without naming customers.

    Kind regards,

  89. Lotr Mileikowsky

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    as for example motorcycles cannot use a standard batteries, they must use “gel” filled batteries necause motorcycles sometimes are riding in low angle,

    there is question: As the same is valid for example for small yachts, boats etc. may be E-Cat SK on full duty at some angled, unstable platform without need of costly stabilisation device?

    Best Regards

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The image of the plasma in the eCat-SK appears to be vertically oriented.

    1. Are the electrodes vertical (their axial axis is vertical)?
    2. Will the plasma discharge be positionally stable when the electrodes are oriented horizontally)?
    3. How do you keep the plasma centered between the electrodes?
    4. Is the positive and negative going triangular pulses key?
    5. Will the eCat-SK properly function in a different orientation (e.g., laying on its side)?

  95. WaltC

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    – Has any manufacturer contacted you to explore the possibility of incorporating your E-Cat SK into their product (presumably an industrial product that utilizes heat) so that they could then sell the combined product to others?

    Analogous to “Intel Inside”, this would be “E-Cat Inside”.

    Thanks,

  97. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Congratulations on you and your teams endeavours to get the E-cat technology the recognition that it so rightly deserves. This you do not need to answer but should a large enough company come forward and offer to manufacture and distribute E-Cats to industry and provide you and your team with a research establishment within the company would you accept the offer if the financial conditions met your requirements. I ask this question because you are 1st and foremost a nuclear scientist not an industrialist. by industrialist I mean not driven by financial reward alone but by a passion to understand the dynamics of energy. I wish you and your team all the best. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have stated the effective area of the eCat-SK was 330 square cm but only used the 1 square cm in your thermal calculations.
    1. Is the 330 square cm the size of the transparent window enclosing the plasma or the area of the plasma itself?
    2. If it is the window dimensions, is the window approximately 10cm in length with a diameter of 10cm?

  104. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    If you have a 17″ video, you can measure directly these dimensions with a ruler, because with that diagonal the scale is 1:1

    Caro Dr. Rossi, ho aspettato qualche giorno (in modo da far passare la buriana della presentazione dell’SK) per confidarle tutta la mia preoccupazione per la sua salute.
    Non le nascondo che durante lo streaming, ascoltando il suo modo sofferente di parlare e tossire, ad un certo punto non riuscivo più a concentrarmi su quel gioiello del nuovo reattore di sua invenzione.
    La prego di trovare dieci minuti di tempo e dare un’occhiata a questo link https://22passi.blogspot.com/2017/01/considerazioni-personale-su.html nella speranza che possa esserle utile e convinto come sono che il mondo abbia tanto bisogno di geniali visionari come Lei ancora per molti anni.

    1. Can you tell us if you are happy with the number of orders so far?
    2. Can we help to improve on that? How?
    3. When do you think to deliver the first after-launch E-cat system to a customer?
    4. Are you already producing the maximum numbers of E-Cat SK based on your initial production capacity?
    5. Do you intend do enlarge your production capacity already?
    6. Is there any chance that we may hear of a customer that they are satisfied with the heat delivery of the Leonardo Corp. in this year?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  121. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    I don’t speak Russian, so I asked to a Russian friend of mine ( Dr Vitaly Uzikov ) to write for me a 20 lines synopsis of the video.
    He told me it is a report of the presentation I made of the Ecat SK on January 31st ( http://www.ecatskdemo.com ); the journalist that made this report, Mr Igor Danailov, is a mainstream Russian journalist. He says I am looking for a strong partner for the diffusion of our technology also in Russia and this is true, because Russia is one of the Countries where our patent has been granted and my effect has been repeatedly replicated.
    Warm Regards,

  122. George Prazak

    DR Rossi,
    1- What is the temperature that the Ecat SK can deliver to the secondary of a heat exchanger?
    2- how to convert 1 kWh into BTUs ?
    May the Good Lord forever bless you and your dedicated Team,
    George Prazak

  123. Andrea Rossi

    George Prazak:
    1- our primary reaches so high temperatures, that we can deliver any temperature a secondary needs
    2- 1 kWh = 3412.14 BTU
    Thank you for your kind wishes to our Team,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  124. Dear Andrea,
    about your warning of today February 11, 2019 at 3:56 AM.
    I think you should have at least specify the address of official Leonardo Corporate site, that I think is
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    Right?
    I think you shoud urgently update the site ecat.com removing old devices (maybe obsolete?) from “products” section and in main section. The only mention about the E-Cat SK is about the recent presentation of 31/01/2019.
    In my modest opinion this is no good. And also, less important but not negligible, the site ecat.com need a deep graphic restyling

    It’s good to see that the EcatSK is now in production and customers are signing up to obtain heat at reduced prices. Is the factory that is fabricating the EcatSKs the same factory that produced the ECAT units that were used in the 1 MW Doral demonstration? Continued success and provide any delivery numbers when you feel you can.

  131. Dear Mr Andrea Rossi,
    In your paper
    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I think that the paragraph 1, about the casimir effect, is the less convincing, while the paragraphs 2,3,4 are intertwined , the 3 deriving from the 2 and reinforced by the 4 and corroborated by the experiment with the Ecat SK. Do you agree?
    Best Regards,
    Sandra

  132. Andrea Rossi

    Sandra:
    I agree. I added the theoretical possibility that the Casimir could be effective in particular conditions, but it is weak.
    Warm Regards,

  133. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Please clarify. If the plasma temperature is 8,111K with an emissivity of 0.9 and the effective plasma shape from your presentation was a length of 1.1cm and a diameter of 0.3cm (this was on the presentation), the effective area is about 1.04 cm squared and the computed radiative power would be 26.17kW. However, if you state the real effective area is 330cm squared, then the computed radiative power will be about 8.6MW. (Thermal Model of a horizontal cylinder in a 20C ambient surrounding, radiative only).

    For a series of reasons only the core of 1 sq cm can be used to be safe.

  137. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea
    That understanding put forward by Patty and confirmed as correct by yourself could confirm something I have considered with regards the energy produced by electrical charge. This involves transitions i.e. negatives becoming neutrals or a volume of mass becoming more of a size of mass i.e. a reduction of a volume. Positives and negatives are comprised of the same material. The length of the wave is different but the waves are comprised of the same substance. They could be considered to be interchangeable. However when a positive short wave neutralizes a negative long wave there is a gain on the positive and a loss on the negative with regards a volume and size interaction so as to create a neutral. Negative is always at the event horizon with regards the interaction i.e. exterior to the positive. Virtual particles take up space but when they annihilate the the negative implodes and the positive explodes so as to become neutrals. It is during this interchange that the particles becomes neutrals and the exterior of the negatives produce an active event horizon producing an added amount of energy. Caused by exterior neutrinos being dragged in to fill the void and consequently creating an added source of energy. That is if there is no such thing as empty space. This theory I have considered for some time but not considered its implications with regards virtual particles and their annihilation. Just something I think could be worth considering.

    I understand that you calculated the power radiated from 1 square centimeter of the plasma and, to be conservative, you have not calculated the power radiated from the remaininf 329 square centimeters of the plasma surface: did I understand well?

  143. Andrea Rossi

    Patty:
    Yes, you have understood correctly: to stay in the safe side, we calculated only the very small part wherein the density of the plasma is at its maximum.
    There I think it happens the effect I described in par 3 of my paper: if curious, this is the link:

  144. Dear Andrea,
    Or you could add fluorescent glass (the same what exists in fluorescent lamps) to turn the UV into visible photons and then use ordinary silicon PV. That might give better efficiency than illuminating silicon-PV with UV directly. The silicon-PV should be cooled by the heat transfer fluid because at high temperature its efficiency goes down. If cool enough fluid is not available, one can use gallium-arsenide instead of silicon, because it tolerates warm temperature better. GaAs is more expensive than Si, but I don’t know how much.

  148. Eric Ashworth

    Daniel,
    An interesting debate between Rodney and Orsobubu and your response. I think as Rodney and Orsobubu point out in contrasting ways with regards the E-Cat technology , I feel that this is not a major problem to deal with at this time of introducing this technology. We must consider a third factor which is difficult to understand without actually being involved with a new technology that involves understanding how energy interacts without producing a product with a situation that is able to demonstrate a complex mystery. Yes both Rodney and Orsobubu have valid points of view with regards world politics and industrial competitiveness but this is not the reason why LENRs are shunned by the establishment and a consequential knock on effect by research establishments that are one step beneath their partners in charge. What is missing in the big picture with regards this newly discovered cheap, clean source of energy is the silence from the people who control propaganda at the highest level and why this should be?. From my own personal experience I believe it to be the technology and the understanding of it, when projected into an understanding of energy interaction that then becomes the crux to the problem. Basically it’s about how positive and negative structures interact to form a life sustaining neutral. Also it can refer to human evolution and its necessary interaction within a chain of events that requires a degree of understanding with intelligence able to project and understand cycles of evolution. Intuition represents the only form of real intelligence, reading from books and repeating format represents a good memory. Both are essential for a planet to evolve onto a higher level. Regards Eric Ashworth

  149. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    in the eCat SK demonstration, the radiometric spectrum showed energy output at wavelengths of about 450(nm?) or shorter wavelengths. Blackbody radiation would typically extend into the longer wavelengths? Is this an instrument limitation (radiometer was not sensitive to longer wavelengths, or optical filtering was used) or is the actual output spectrum only at wavelengths of 450nm or shorter?

  150. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    A “Black Body” is a hypothetical absorber and radiator of energy, with no reflecting power. It radiates at all frequencies with a spectral energy distribution dependent on its temperature in Kelvin. Our calculation is focused only in 1 cm^2 where the plasma has the max density, while the plasma has a surface of about 330 cm^2, so to measure the power we consider only 1/330 of the plasma surface focusing conservatively only where there is the max density and the max absolute temperature. As you can see, the spectrum is more complex.
    Obviously it radiates only at the frequencies with a spectral energy distribution corresponding to the temperature in K
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  151. Dear Andrea,
    Concerning how to make electricity using PV. Since the SK makes UV, in theory the most well suited would be a high-bandgap semiconductor like silicon carbide. But probably such PV devices don’t exist in the market, because thus far there hasn’t been a need to convert UV into electricity. In principle it’s the reverse of a blue LED, which does exist in the market.

    @Orsobubu,

    What I liked about the second last message of Rodney Nicholson is that he emphasized that, especially for energy intensive companies, a 20% reduction in energy cost could make the difference between surviving or losing the (according to me exaggerated but very realistic) economical competition battle between companies. I think what he wrote is very realistic and true, but I agree with you that the fierce competition in the world economy in fact is ‘a nightmare’ and ‘a grim perspective for workers’, like you wrote in your reaction.

    I’m certainly not a (hard) capitalist, but also not a Bolshevist (although we have to come up (and protect) for the poor/weak people and countries, in a co-operative and solidary way, I don’t like the (extreme) Bolshevist ‘struggle/battle of the classes’ against each other, nor in the ‘dictatorship of the working class’, that created a horrible society (with dictators like Stalin) in the former Sovjet Union, but I do think that our world economy is too competitive, and should be more co-operative. I agree with you that the situation of the present world economy, with its exaggerated competition, creates a ‘nightmare’ and a ‘grim perspective’ for many countries and most people, and therefore I would prefer a more co-operative world, with less exploitation and, for instance, also less (political and economical) refugees. If I reflect on it, many problems are caused by the exaggerated competition (and lack of co-operation) in our present world-economy. So, for instance, political refugees are caused by the pernicious/nefarious geopolitics of the superpowers (US, Russia and China), that, as permanent members with veto’s, dominate the UN Security Council with their veto’s, to maintain their egoistic geopolitical agenda, like we have seen in the Second Gulf War (in Irak in 2003, for which the US was responsible) and the recent conflict in Syria (were Russia supports Assad). These conflicts, caused by the battle of the superpowers for (economical) supremacy, that also divides the world and the nations against each other (think f.i. of the present conflict in Jemen), caused many refugees fleeing to Europe. And my reaction as a European is that I want a better world for everybody on this planet, and therefore we need a co-operative world economy, based on human rights for everybody (so that nobody is exploited), with a working class protected by a more powerful ILO (International Labour Organisation, that is the part of the UN that is necessary to protect the rights of working class people everywhere), and even a more co-operative and democratic UN (a more democratic UN Security Council without veto’s for permanent members, but with special majorities (like 2/3 or 3/4) for important decisions). In this 21th century, also the beginning of the ‘Aquarian Age’;-), we need a better working, more democratic (no veto’s but special majorities) and more powerful UN to resolve world wide problems like exaggerated competition and pernicious/nefarious geopolitics, with all their bad consequences. In name of all who suffer, we need a more co-operative world, with a co-operative world economy, serving all people in every country, worldwide. And of course, the UN also needs to organize information campaigns to counter overpopulation.

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    the website http://www.ecatskdemo.com as it is now is very well done. The subdivision in links to the main highlights is very useful, as well as the link to your theoretical publication on Researchgate. Very well done, congrats to the guys that did it. Also the problem of your voice has been remarkably improved.
    Thanks for all your work and thank you for not forgetting us, the household Ecat followers,
    Luz

    To Michel:
    The explanation is simple: since the plasma is an electrical conductor with almost zero electrical resistance, the electric current that flows through it (3.2 mA) causes in it a practically null voltage drop.
    So the reactor alone consumes negligible energy.
    This is the reason why only the power absorbed by the resistance (0.8 mW) is used in the calculations.
    The COP value of the reactor alone is therefore incredibly high, not even measurable.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  157. Hi Orsobubu:

    Regarding your: February 7, 2019 at 7:34 PM:

    “ …….. Now, his post looks to me as a realistic picture of a nightmare (!), a grim perspective for workers, for managers, for industrialists, for US economy, for LENR, for Rossi, in short, for everything we love.

    “Rodney, I hope you’ll add a final chapter on possible future adoption of new, more advanced production systems getting rid of Capital and Money, possibly linking this revolution to the New Fire Age.

    “And don’t forget to specify that all energy forms must be integrated.”
    = = = = = = = = = = =
    Thank you for the kind words. At the risk of taking up an unreasonable amount of space on this blog, this is categorically to be my final post here on the subject of economics! Please feel free to delete this if you wish, Andrea. Please reply to this if you wish, Orsobubu, but if you do, I shall not respond. I will leave you the fun of administering a ‘parting shot’.

    Since you decided to share with the good people here the nature of the project I am presently working on, it seems only fair that I let them know that you are involved in a project to republish the entire writings of Karl Marx.

    I have explained to you what a sad waste of resources that will represent. Not only a waste of the paper (and the trees) it will have to be printed on, but also of the, hopefully, intelligent manpower and other resources involved, which could have been devoted to doing something productive instead.

    As for the nightmare you refer to, the only people who might find ‘capitalism’ a nightmare are the owners of businesses producing poor quality products and/or carelessly wasting resources in producing them. For everyone else, on a scale ranging from nightmare to utopia, capitalism rates much, much closer to utopia. This is true especially in the case of consumers, and we are all consumers. When free markets are allowed to flourish, truly massive improvements in living standards are enjoyed by the overwhelming majority of the population. In contrast, wherever socialism is inflicted on people, living standards do not rise, they fall. Often PRECIPITOUSLY.

    A sample among more prominent recent examples of this include the nations of Eastern Europe where many considered it preferable to be shot dead climbing the Berlin Wall rather than to continue living in East Germany.

    Or take Zimbabwe, once one of the more economically successful countries in Africa and a net exporter of food, where today more than 90% of the population (some estimates say 96%) are subsistence farmers while the country has become a net importer of food. (And where the government’s marxist statisticians hilariously classify subsistence farmers as ’employed’!) Have you not asked yourself why it is all the migrants currently trying to exit Africa are taking the highly risky trip across the Mediterranean to capitalist Europe, rather than simply taking the safer land route to marxist utopia Zimbabwe?

    Or take Cuba, where those able to, have fled the country to live, most often, in the United States, and have no desire to return (providing a broad hint you would do well to take note of, in my opinion).

    Or most recently there is, of course, Venezuela where the socialist policies of Chavez and Maduro have transformed the country from being one of the most prosperous in a generally poor South America, to a level at which several million have already had to flee, to any country other than Venezuela, to avoid starvation. Given the views you hold, has it never occurred to you to spend some time figuring out why it is all the emigrants from Latin America are moving in hordes north to the United States, not south to Maduro’s marxist paradise?

    As I may have said to you before, Mr. Orsobubu, I am surprised you seem unable to process all this evidence staring you in the face. Whenever the economic system you say you prefer is introduced, poverty rapidly follows. And the reasons for this are not rocket science, but I am not going to take up yet more blog space elaborating about it here.

    Regarding your comments about money and capital: you would win a Nobel Prize if you could find a way to run a prosperous economy either: A) without a medium of exchange, which is money’s principal function. The alternative, barter, has never been celebrated on account of its convenience. Or, B) without capital. Capital is used in large amounts in all types of economies, including marxist ones. Even some animals use it: apes, for example, fashion small tree limbs to use to extract termites from their mounds for food; some dolphin species spend time finding sponges to use them when they need them to protect their noses when scrounging for food just below the sea bed; and of course almost all birds, and many squirrels and other animals, devote considerable resources to building nests or digging burrows – the human equivalent of the capital stock of housing.

    But most important regarding capital: since the level of living standards depends on the quantity of useful output created, improvement in living standards is impossible without adding to the stock of capital, with which additional output can be produced.

    Finally, in a market economy all forms of energy become integrated automatically.

    Beyond the above I will not comment further. But both Mr. Orsobubu and Mr. Rossi are on my list to receive a free copy, when it gets published, of what I am currently working on. But that is not likely to happen very soon.

    And now I shall return to my cave trying to remember that I have given an undertaking not to be induced into wasting any more space discussing the economy here, no matter the provocation!

    Rodney.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Could you clarify the E2 calculation:

    If i understand well, the 250mV are not the input voltage of the reactor, but the voltage accross a shunt resistor (78 Ohms). The video indicates the input power of the reactor is 800µW, in fact it is the power dissipated by the resistor.

    I agree the oscilloscope shows the input current, but to be rigorous it misses the voltage at the entrance of the reactor.
    As an exemple, if the input voltage of the reactor is 1KV, then the true input power is 1000 x 0.25/78 = 3W, despit you still have 800µW on the resistor.

    Regards,

    Michel

  159. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    The plasma is a conductor. As you have seen in the video, the plasma has not gaps along the circuit. When you have a circuit whose sole load is a resistance, if you measure the resistance , by means of an Ohm-meter and the voltage across the resistance, you obtain by the equation of Ohm the current of the circuit ( whole of it ). Since the plasma, as we said, is a conductor, the current of the circuit is the same across the whole circuit.
    Therefore when you obtain with the equations of Ohm:
    1- V/R = A
    2- A x V = W
    1 and 2 are valid across the whole circuit.
    Anyway: you have in the video the calculations both of the COP with E2 and E1 + E2, so you can choose what you prefer, just consider that E1 pays in full for itself, because its heat is not dissipated, but recovered almost in full, either to make heat for the room or to preheat the secondary circuit. So, choose the solution you prefer. This is why I put both the calculations.
    By the way, if you have the patience, after digesting the video of January 31st, to watch also the video of the demo made with the E-Cat QX in Stockhom on November 24th 2017, this issue has been detailed making a comparative analysis with a dummy ( go to http://www.ecat.com and choose the link to the video of the November 24 Stockholm Demo ).
    Thank you for your attention to the work of our Team,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I’m sure you already have in mind the home Ecat. I’m sure you will launch it as soon as the induatrial applications wil have matured enough experience to alow it.
    Can you antivipate if:
    1- it will make only heat or also electricity?
    2- if also electricity, with which system?
    3- for example: thermoelectric by the Seebeck effect?
    Warm Regards,
    Chuck Davis

  161. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Surely I have it in mind, we will not betray the idea of the househod applications.
    Production of heat is at this point easy: the Ecat should be a 20 kW module as you saw her in
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Production of lectricity is much more complicated, because the direct production from the “ballerina” is still not reliable and efficient, the Seebeck effect could be a way, as well as the photovoltaic effect, it will be a matter of efficiency. Probably their evolution will improve their efficiency, mainly for the P.V.
    We’ll see.

    Dear Andrea,
    It happened to me to read today this: http://www.classe.cornell.edu/research/CesrTA/ElectronCloud.html
    In particular I noted the incipit of the paper (page 1):
    “It wasn’t until the 1990’s that the BUILD UP OF HIGH DENSITIES OF LOW ENERGY ELECTRONS was identified as the reason behind performance limitations in many types of particles accelerators over the preceding decades…(OMISSIS)…THESE ELECTRONS CAUSE A WIDE VARIETY OF UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS”
    Now, comparing this paper to your paper published on Researchgate on January 24 2019
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    it comes up to me this consideration: SOMEBODY SEES IN THE MOULD ONLY A DIRT, SOMEBODY ELSE DISCOVERS THE PENICILLIN.

    Dt. Rossi,

    for an industrial plant a highly reliable heat supply is usually more important than a bit of energy cost saving.
    You said that all e-catSK will be controlled from Leonardo’s headquater.
    Will this be done from a 24h/7d occupied control room?
    And in case that an e-catSK needs repair work, will you gurantee a maximum response time for one of your maintenance guys to be dispatched?

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    On February 1, 2019 at 3:43 PM, I wrote:

    ‘I was able to look at the whole presentation now, and I also agree with your calculations (except maybe with the ‘calorimetric comparision’, where I found another result for the Power needed to heat up the air from 0°C to 16°C: As the Cp of air is 1 J/(kg*K), I found: Power = 6700(kg/h)*1(J/(kg*K))*16K = 107200J/H = (107200/3600)Watt = 29.78 Watt, but I was quick, and maybe I’m wrong?)’

    As I was very busy, I only now found the time to recheck what I wrote above (in the quote), and I saw that I made a mistake because of a wrong table in my polytechnical thumb book, where the Cp of air was given as 1 J/(kg*K), where it is 1 kJ/(kg*K) (Baehr), but this means that I have to correct my result as 29.78 kWatt (and not 29.78 Watt). But of course that is more than the 20.5 kWatt that you calculated.

    But in the case of gases like air, the Cp and the Cv are not equal. The Cp (specific heat at constant pressure) always is bigger than the Cv (specific heat at constant volume), because in the first case (Cp) also work is delivered. (Imagine a closed bottle with air that has to be heated (Cv) and compare it with a bottle with a piston, where the pressure is held constant (at the other side of the piston = (for instance) atmospheric pressure), and some of the heat is used to move the piston, so work is done, and that means less energy to heat up the air, so the Cp of gases always is bigger than the Cv of gases.

    And although a room is never completely closed (there are always leaks and losses to the environment, especially when, from time to time, doors are opened ;-), we could consider a room (filled with air) as a recipient with constant volume, isn’t it?

    Well, lets calculate again with the Cv (at constant volume) of air instead of the Cp (at constant pressure) or air. This link gives the properties of air>:

    https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/air-properties-d_156.html

    And there we found: Cv of air = 0.7171 kJ/kgK (instead of the Cp that is 1 kJ/kgK)

    Calculating with Cv instead of the Cp, I find:

    Power = 6700(kg/h)*0.7171(kJ/(kg*K))*16K = 76873.12 kJ/h = (76873.12/3600) kJ/s = 21.35 kW, what is very close to your result…

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Congratulations on the important milestone on January 31st. I’ve been following your work since the Lugano test, and it’s great to see the commercialization phase has finally begun.

    I was wondering if you can answer the following without disclosing anything confidential: You say the control panel consumes 380Wh/h, but only a small part of that energy is actually fed to the E-cat, the rest is lost as waste heat (that can be recuperated). Is there basically a powerful computer in the control panel, doing complex calculations to keep the reaction going and generating all that waste heat in the process, like all powerful computers do? Or is there some complex and inefficient energy transformation process going on in the control panel, a process that turns only a small part of the 380WH/h into a form the e-Cat can use, while the rest of the energy is “wasted”? Is reducing the control panel’s power consumption one of your current priorities? Thank you if you can answer and godspeed!

    People,

    Rodney is a great folk who is writing a deep study about capitalism, and you can see it from the knowledges he has. Now, his post looks to me as a realistic picture of a nightmare (!), a grim perspective for workers, for managers, for industrialists, for US economy, for LENR, for Rossi, in short, for everything we love.

    Rodney, I hope you’ll add a final chapter on possible future adoption of new, more advanced production systems getting rid of Capital and Money, possibly linking this revolution to the New Fire Age.

    And don’t forget to specify that all energy forms must be integrated.

  181. Correction:

    In the fifth from last line in my February 7, 2019 at 2:24 PM message, the word ‘customers’ should instead have been ‘competitors’. Sorry about that.

    Rodney.

  182. Hi folks:

    Regarding the prompt, or otherwise, adoption of E-Cat technology by businesses using large quantities of heat, there is a simple answer: The reality is that competition is fierce in the great majority of industries in North America. In consequence, profit margins are narrow enough that, among companies using large quantities of heat, the difference between one that achieves a 20% reduction in its costs of heat and one that does not, can mean the difference between being healthily profitable or bankrupt.

    So, if I owned a business in which one quarter of my expenses were the cost of heat, and I was able to reduce that cost from one quarter to 20% by renting my heat from Leonardo Corporation, the very last thing I would want to do is let my competitors know what I was doing. I would suddenly find myself, because I was more alert than they were, at a huge competitive advantage. So it does not surprise me at all that those who switch to E-Cat heat would be keen that there be an NDA, effectively delaying for as long as possible their competitors realizing what was happening.

    This would be simply another example of what has been going on for centuries: a highly alert company outwitting others that were just a little less alert. For example: during the course of the 20th Century, 1,637 american companies were in the business of manufacturing automobiles. As we all know, 1,634 of them went broke because only three remain in business today. The others had to close down either because they didn’t do quite as good a job of creating products that impressed customers, or because they didn’t do quite as good a job of keeping their costs down.

    In a highly competitive economy like that of the US, finding ways to cut costs just a couple of percent more effectively than your competitors is essential to remaining in business. So the E-Cat can make a huge difference to the economic viability of an alert company using large quantities of heat. And the management would be crazy to make their customers aware of it. Staying in business is difficult enough as it is.

    By the same token, once people become aware of E-Cat technology, if they do not immediately adopt it they will be competed out of business by those that do.

    Rodney.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Summarizing your answers:

    – Who is imposing the NDA, a) your company or b) the customers?
    > answer a+b
    – In case the answer [the above] is b). Can a customer disclose they are using your product if they decide so?
    > answer yes

    I wanted to ask you some additional questions:

    1. In case of an NDA imposed by both your company and your customers (the a+b case of your answer), could your customers still disclose they are using your product if they decided to do so?

    2. Don’t you think that sealing the outcome of the COP of the Ecat behind an NDA could hinder rather then promote the diffusion of the Ecat?

    3. Is there any entry fee that your customers need to pay to use your product?

    4. If a car brand advertised that a certain model could run for 20000 miles without refueling, due to a proprietary new and yet unknown and undisclosed phenomenon, but sealed the actual performances of such car behind a strong NDA, would you buy that car?

    Dear Andrea, While viewing the plasma I can see what I understand as energy interaction. It is of three distinct parts within a magnetic flow from positive to negative. The positive being at the top but looking down as it is side ways on and the negative at the base with the manufactured neutral central position. The neutral being a free agent is able to escape, the negative forms the containment providing an ’economy flow’ i.e. an exterior feed back to the positive due to the internal flow from positive to negative. The colours are representative of the pressures. The yellow bands entering the positive represent the ‘economy flow’ re entering full pressure. The plasma is a manufactured three part structure with short life lifespans of its manufactured neutral i.e. virtual particles. What I can see is the same activity of the plasma as I have observed in the mechanical unifying field oscillator. I believe energy interaction whether on the atomic scale or the sub atomic produces similar effects with regards its interaction. The sub atomic being of course more intense, volatile and active but because hydrogen is the manipulated medium of the sk e-cat, the energy of the neutral is soft compared to the energy of a conventional nuclear power plant. I realize there is no technical value in this information but to inform you that from my observations and understanding your technology is providing visual confirmation of energy interaction and a resultant produced product being a manufactured neutral and it has to be remembered that the heat produced is from two dimensions, one of which being positive and the other being negative.

    Hi Andrea,
    I see a great business, perhaps the bigger in the first phase of the spreading of the e-cat technology: introducing a bit more of COP in the range of appliances “heat generators”, in the simplest way possible.
    Pizza and bread ovens, stove both electrically supplied and methane, etc.
    Nobody would purchase an appliance without this plus that will make save for instance also only 20 percent of the bill like now make the condensation methane boilers that have made obsolete the non condensating technology.

    Dear mr Rossi. My home from 1915 in south of Norway has a winter requirement of 10-15 kW. There is currently 3 generations of water heat equipment connected to the system: A coal furnace from 1960, an electrical element from about the same time and a recent low-priced air to water heat pump.

    With a degree in physics I am waiting to upgrade to an ecat device and I have been avoiding costly upgrades. So I am wondering how long it will take until such a product can be available for home use, and I would be honored to be an early customer.

    I have registered on your waiting list some years ago.

  197. Andrea Rossi

    Anders Rosnes:
    Your reservation is safe. When? Honestly, I do not know. Surely after a massive consolidated use in industries. Thank you for your sustain!

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I don’t understand your answers, probably because I don’t know which answer applies to you which question.
    I will rephrase them numbering the questions:

    1. Who is imposing the NDA, a) your company or b) the customers?
    2. In case the answer to 1. Is b). Can a customer disclose they are using your product if they decide so?
    3. What are the terms of the NDA? (In general)
    4. Is the total COP of the apparatus part of the NDA?
    5. If the answer to 4. Is yes, why has this inclosed in the NDA? (not being the COP intellectual property)
    6. From your statement I understand that you have been contacted from America, EUrope, Cina, Russia and Africa after the presentation. Can you tell us how many contracts are currently being discussed?

    Kind Regards,

    Lib

    Hi Andrea,
    theoretically, using a bit of your technology would be possible to realize a simple 1 or 2 kW stove, with a COP limited to about 1.5 with none, or a simplified control panel? a such appliance would be a great improvement in reducing CO2 emissions and energy bill.
    Please, answer if theoretically this would be possible, independently if you are not interested in.

  203. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    Yes, it is theoretically possible.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    From the question of Michel of Feb 5th, it seems that your customers will be subject to an NDA. Then you answered that this is because customers don’t want to be harassed.
    Who is imposing the NDA? Your company or the customers?
    What happens in the case a customer actually wants to be arassed?
    What are the terms of the NDA?
    Is the apparatus total energy input/output part of the NDA?

    If your company has imposed the NDA over energy input/output , not being that info intellectual property can you then explain us why?

    Kind Regards,

  206. Mario Menichella

    Dear Andrea,
    my congratulations for the “Ballerina concerto”, which I appreciated in a special way due to my physical background. In my view, it is the best conclusion of a cycle of about 14 years of your experiments / refinements / efforts of various type, which would deserve a major public recognition (I mean not only by Brian…).

    I have read your blog since 2011, but in the last 12 months you still gave with generosity in terms of time and committement so many answers that probably I missed some of them. So I beg your pardon if my following question has already been posted before by others (may be not).

    I read in the Appendix of your paper with Gullstrom (July 2017) that in the ractor (at the time a QuarkX prototype) that the ractor contained LiAlH4. As I imagine that you need to vacuum the tube and it is not clear to me how you can insert a powder in an evacuated tube, I imagined that the presence of LiAlH4 was a Gullstrom’s hypothesis and not an “official” info you was giving to him/us.

    So, my question is: (1) in such old paper, did you officially – I mean as Andrea Rossi – (a) say that in the QuarkX you tested there is LiAl4 or (b) is it only a Gullstrom’s hypothesis? And (2), if you can say it or at least let us imagine in some way, is the LiAlH4 present also in your marvelous E-Cat SK, being apparently, to our old aficionados, a quite similar reactor (except for the nice “dancing”, hehe)? :-)

    Thank you in advance for your answers, and my best wishes for your work and health!

    Mario

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Did you have a reaction from any potential buyer after the presentation of your product?Any new customer approached you after the launch?
    You said that you would publish the number of new contracts or customers on your site, but you didn’t. Why not? Could you number to us the amount of new customers you have so far?
    Could you tell us from which countries the customers are contacting you from?

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    The introduction of the E-Cat in the market will soon allow you to supply heat and/or steam at prices much lower than those of the market.
    Although at the beginning there will be relatively few plants that hopefully will grow in number, this will not significantly change the current economic and political balance in the world.
    But the disruptive capacity of the E-Cat is immense, and sooner or later it could bother someone.
    I know you’ve said many times that all energy can work together, but others may not agree.
    If I have a pebble in the shoe that bothers me to walk, I remove the pebble in order to continue doing my business.
    I’m a little worried …

    Dear Andrea,
    you wrote Aftenposten that you expect SK heat to be 50% cheaper than any other heat source. I thought that you would guarantee only 20%. Does that mean that you guarantee 20% but expect savings to be higher? Or do you mean that you could reach 50% in the future?

  224. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    would you like to tell us what is being cooled by the cooling system?

    I find it intriguing that you count it for heat production. To heat a building or a greenhouse, that is certainly relevant. But to heat a liquid through a heat exchanger, the heat from the cooling system will not really be useful.

    Not that I see a problem there, because inverters of solar panels also achieve efficiencies of 98% at best.

    But I would like your vision on that.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  225. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Yes, if the air is directly used to heat the room the COP of the cooling system heat recovery is the same of the solar panels.

  228. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    From your description, it seems that the ECat is similar to the old fashioned neons: a starter (the control panel), a resistor (actually a reactance in the case of the neon) in series and a plasma.

    Have you tried to study the well known (i think) physics of an old fashioned neon to see if it fits for the ECat? This because modern energy saving light bulbs, pre-LED, have substituted starter and reactance with a switching circuit, much more efficient. Could this be the key to increase the efficiency of the ECat driver? What do you think?

    Reactive regards,
    Marco.

  229. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    I don’t think so.
    Warm Regards,

  230. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Would you be willing to cooperate with the following:
    Assume the readers of ECW will hire an attorney who should ask of some customers of you the input energy and output energy over a period of an E-Cat plant in operation. The attorney keeps the names of your customers secret and he is free to pick some of your customers from a list, of customers that have agreed with you to cooperate with the attorney. You will show the attorney that picklist. To persuade customers to cooperate, you may offer them a reduction in price for the delivered heat during the first year or so.
    In this way the performance is verified by an independent body and the NDA is not violated (customer has agreed with it). The readers of ECW will provide you an official certificate that we have verified the performance of your Ecat with regards to COP. That should boost the sales, we expect, and we have our long wanted official verification of your LENR technology. Then the Era of the New Fire has finally begun.
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  232. Dear Dr Rossi

    I am still a little confused on the COP of the system when you have more than one reactor. From what I have gathered is that one controller can operate up to 10 ecat reactors. If we assume the power consumption is 0 watts or very close to it for the reactors and the controller consumes approx 380watts, does this mean that 10 Ecat units each producing 20Kw giving a total of 200Kw and one controller is the COP of the total system now 200/0.38 = 526.

    Thank you

  237. Hi Andrea:

    OK. So an E-Cat SK reactor operating in SSM consumes a microscopically small quantity of continuous electric power?

    Am I right in assuming that to start up an E-Cat SK from cold requires more electric input than SSM? And that this start up amount is trivial where a reactor operates in SSM pretty much continuously 350 days of the year?

    Thank you.

    Rodney.

  238. Andrea Rossi

    Rodney Nicholson:
    Yes, you are correct.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  239. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Some people ask for details about the reactor’s COP.
    Your calculations are clearly readable, but I made a brief summary as I have understood.
    The reactor without plasma has infinite electrical resistance, it is an open circuit.
    When there is the plasma, its resistance becomes almost zero, a negligible value.
    When the reactor is operating, a very low current of 3.2 mA passes, and there is almost no electrical consumption in the reactor.
    In fact, with a very low current in a resistance tending to zero, the consumption is practically nothing.
    The only measurable consumption is in the electrical resistance put in series with the reactor (78 ohms), that is 0.0008 W.
    The necessity of this resistance is to limit the current when there is the plasma, otherwise, there would be a short-circuit.

    This fact shows that in reality, the reactor alone has an incredibly own high COP, not even measurable, since in input it consumes almost nothing, while in output it supplies kW of power.
    In such circumstances, the reactor is in self-sustaining mode.
    Am I correct?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  240. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Let me repeat: I stick on what I wrote on

  241. Hi Andrea:

    At risk of becoming irritating – I hope I am not, I certainly do not mean to be:

    I now see – sorry, silly me – that the current moving from the control panel to the reactor must be 0.0032 amps. So the watts consumed by the reactor must be just 0.0008, as the presentation had pointed out.

    Since the reactor’s heat output is 21,942 watts, the CoP of the reactor itself must be 27.4 million, before any adjustment for the length of time spent in SSM.

    Have I gotten it right this time?

    And clarification of the definition of SSM would be much appreciated.

    Thank you for your patience with me about this.

    27.4 million kindest regards.

    Rodney.

  242. Andrea Rossi

    Rodney Nicholson:
    You are absolutely not irritating, why should you be ?

    = = = = = = = =
    Hi Andrea:

    Now I see I am confused again.

    I had imagined that SSM was defined as periods during which the **reactor** did not need any electric power, and continued to generate heat without it.

    I thought that when the reactor was not in SSM it needed electic current in order to continue to function as intended.

    Your post above seems to suggest otherwise. And may also contradict much of the contents of a message I had posted earlier today.

    Clarification about the meaning of ‘self-sustaining mode’ would be helpful to me. Thank you.

    There exists a well-known James Bond song “You only live twice”, performed by Nancy Sinatra. I notice, that if one substitutes “LENR” for “love” in the lyrics, one gets something:

    You only live twice, or so it seems.
    One life for yourself, and one for your dreams.
    You drift through the years and life seems tame.
    Till one dream appears and LENR is its name.
    And LENR is a stranger who’ll beckon you on.
    Don’t think of the danger or the stranger is gone.
    This dream is for you, so pay the price.

  249. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Whoa! “The E-Cat SSM mode is always on: the consume you saw in the presentation is constant and stable” is a huge revelation from what we are accustomed too. It has been understood up to this time the control system was required to excite and maintain the E-Cat at a certain level of operation with periodic excitation intervals. Now it is always in Self-Sustained Mode, meaning (at least to me) it does not require the control system to maintain its ‘on’ or operational mode. The only limited conclusion I can imagine now for the control system’s use is to either keep the E-Cat from running away or to shut it down when required or both. Could you share any other information without violating confidentiality to help clarify this new paradigm? Thank you!
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  250. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    I honestly think that in all the links published on http://www.ecarskdemo.com I released all the non confidential information.

  251. Hello.
    Can you explain to a person that is not an engineer what does it means in the video:
    1) the controller input voltage (upper left)
    2) the spectrometer input (down left)

    Thanks,
    Bye Luca

  252. Andrea Rossi

    Luca:
    1) UPPER LEFT is not the controller input Voltage, it is the ECAT SK input Voltage ( 250 mV ). The controller input Voltage is the one indicated by the Amperometer/Voltmeter in the UPPER CENTER frame, where are indicated 20 A and 19 V ( by default you read the A, while the V appear when you can see the operator that presses a switch )
    2) the spectrometer indicates the wavelength of the photons in function of their intensity: in the Cartesian axis system you can read along the x axis the wavelength and along the y axis you can read the density
    Warm Regards,

  253. Andrea Rossi

    Dan Gilburt:
    We will give the data that will be possible to make public: as you correctly write, without releasing confidential information.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  254. Hi Andrea:

    In the 31 January video, the CoP was conservatively calculated as 57.7. In a commercial presentation it is important that the seller not overstate his case, so in my opinion it was entirely appropriate that you take this conservative approach.

    However, another statistic which may be almost as interesting as the one you presented – indeed, perhaps even more so – is the CoP of the reactor itself. The control panel, while an essential component of the E-Cat SK, is not an integral part of the mechanism by which the reactor generates heat.

    You mentioned that the heat output of the E-Cat SK’s reactor was 21,942 watts. You also mentioned that the voltage of the power fed to the reactor was 250 millivolts. If the information is not confidential, it would be really interesting to know how many Amps are applied to the reactor when it is not in self-sustain mode, and what percentage of the time, on average, the reactor spends in self-sustain mode. With these two data points it would be possible to calculate the CoP of just the reactor itself.

    If I am not mistaken, if the above data were available, the CoP of the reactor could be calculated as follows:

    CoP = (21,942 ÷ (0.25 x Ar)) ÷ (1 – SSMf) , where

    21,942 is the reactor’s watts of heat output
    0.25 is the voltage of the power fed into the reactor
    Ar is the Amps of the current fed into the reactor
    SSMf is the factor for the proportion of the time the reactor functions is self-sustain mode

    Regarding SSMf, if the reactor is in self-sustain mode for 40% of the time SSMf would be 0.4.

    Taking some arbitrary figures as an example, if the reactor’s current is one amp, and the unit averages self-sustain mode for 40% of the time, then the CoP *** of the reactor *** could be calculated as follows:

    CoP = (21,942 ÷ (0.25 x 1)) ÷ (1 – 0.4) = 146,280

    Now, that 146,280 number is just an example. But if the number were to come out merely a little in excess of 10,000 that would be quite impressive. And a little better, I think, than the results of those struggling to achieve ‘hot fusion’ (!)

    Is the number for the reactor’s CoP – whatever it actually turns out to be – something that people following the LENR story would find of interest?

    With ≈146,280 kind regards,

    Rodney.

    Now that the E-Cat-SKs are going to generate heat for commercial customers would it be possible for you to publish on your web site the total E-CAT-SK energy (KWH) that all your customers receive and are billed for after each month of operation?

    This single number would give a very good indication of how the E-Cat SK is doing in the marketplace, hopefully, without releasing confidential information.

    has been significantly improved, the graphics are now very clear, besides the original row video there are many links that focus on the highlights of the presentation, the volume of your voivce has been worked upon to make it clearer, a link to the paper you published on Researchgate has been put…in few words, now it is a pleasure to go through it.
    Congratulations to your collaborators that made this transformation.

  265. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Your e- cat sk demo is excellent. Why do you not post the link http://wwwecatskdemo.com on the header of this web site?
    As it contains so much valuable information. Also maybe explain why e-cat i.e. energy catalyzer. Just a suggestion Regards Eric Ashworth

  271. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi, You said most of the power consumed by the SK is used for cooling. Do you mean a) the controller cooling system? or b) the reactor cooling system or c) the pump that extracts heat from the reactor and sends it to the customers heat exchanger)? Thanks.

  272. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    the controller cooling system.
    Warm Regards,

  273. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you considered there might be an optical inversion occurring within the plasma? This might be evidenced by the optical spectra in the UV portion of the spectra.

    If you were to set up a resonator mirror system, you might get optical gain and a coherent UV beam might form.

    To do this you would need highly reflecting mirrors at the wavelength(s), a mean of adjusting the mirrors (alignment) and a means for the beam to exit (partially reflecting on one side or a small hole in one mirror). You would also need to provide optical access to the plasma from both sides.

    If you use an Argon or similar inert gas inside the eCat-SK, perhaps you could construct the experiment in a similar gas environment (mirrors within the gas environment but outside of the eCat-SK)..

    Of course, suitable safety measures would need to be taken, eye protection, etc.

  274. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for the suggestion,

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    here is very nice Stirling engine for your E-Cat SK (for 6-25kW thermal input) and 10kWe output:

    https://www.inresol.se/uploaded_files/V2-6-datasheet.pdf?v20180316093302

    Needed temp is 750°C and higher, so query is:

    How much difficult is reach output temp 750°C instead mentioned max 600°C at E-Cat SK?

    Best Regards

  281. Andrea Rossi

    Lotr Mileikowsky:
    Thank you for the information. It is useful.
    We do not have problems to deliver 750 Celsius degrees.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  282. Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    While you mention an essential wavelength of 437.2 nm in your recent paper, in the demo the spectrometer did not show a clear peak at this position. Could you perhaps explain?

    I wish you a speedy recovery.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

  283. Andrea Rossi

    Andreas Moraitis:
    If you go now to the updated http://www.ecatskdemo.com and on youtube, you will find initially 6 links with several particulars in evidence from the whole video and, obviously, also the link to the whole video, that has been edited. Unfortunately my voice is what it is and there is nothing I can do, anyway the volume of my voice has been raised as much as possible.
    You will find a link to the signature 437.2 nm put in evidence from the spectrometer’s graph: it is the one in the bottom of the links series.
    Warm Regards,

  286. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Looking at the spectra from the Jan 31 demo, I noticed several spectral lines on the left (shorter wavelength) side. Have you looked at the spectra in detail?

    1. If you have looked, have you been able to associate any of the spectral lines to elements?
    2. If so, I would expect to see spectral broadening based on thermal (Doppler) or pressure effects. Have you observed these?
    3, How stable are these spectral lines in terms of wavelength and/or integrated power?

  287. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I gave all the information about the spectrum that I deem not confidential. To other information I prefer not to answer in positive or in negative. I underlined the signature at 437.2 because it is strictly related to the theorical considerations published in my paper on Researchgate. The cideo is there and everybody can get from it the information he wants or is able to.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  288. Patrick Ellul

    To all your readers that keep asking about the COP of multiple e-cats under same controller:

    It is obvious to me from the information that you give that most of the power is used for the cooling system, and not the controller itself, and definitely not to feed the actual reactor. So for 10 ecats, you still need 10 times the cooling power. Hence why the ballpark COP remains the same.
    Best regards
    Patrick

  289. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea,

    Bravo on your E-CAT SK Demo.

    And thanks to Tom Florek for his new Stanza in the video of ” I believe in the E-Cat SK. ”

    I was thinking about all the progress that you and your team have made over many years. A fantastic voyage!
    ( Counting from 1996, that would be almost 23 years! )

    I also remember the saying that “If you are not moving forward, you risk starting to go backwards.”

    Here is a recent (September 2018) article on Supercritical CO2 turbines.

    You already have made a giant step on “The Path to Less Expensive “Greener” Energy”, but you may now be able to use Supercritical CO2 as a thermodynamic fluid, instead of steam, in your future efforts.

    https://www.machinedesign.com/mechanical/supercritical-co2-path-less-expensive-greener-energy

    These new challenges are of a different type and on a larger scale. You may be on your way to building up an organization from one Ballerina to a Super Electric/Ballet Company.

    I hope you exert some of this effort in maintaining your health, your voice, your JONP blog and, when you have time, your tennis games!!

    My continued regards and …all regards ‘back from the future’ Ballerinas,

    Joseph Fine

  290. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding the thermal output of the eCat-SK, have you verified that the thermal output levels as measured by radiometric means closely corresponds to measurements using:
    1. change in flowing water temperature without phase transition; and
    2. change in water phase (i.e., production of steam)?
    3. If so, have you also made measurements of either or both of the above at some reduced output power?

  291. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The power do not change changing the fluid or phases of it
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  292. Hi Andrea:

    Thank you for the presentation. There is one point on which I am confused (or perhaps I should say: ” …. about which I know I am confused.”):

    At 10:35 in the video, the oscilloscope showed that the voltage – to quote the commentator – “of the electric energy that enters the E-Cat SK” is 250 millivolts. That, I thought I understood.

    But later in the video – at 12:25 – the same commentator says that the volt meter “……. is displaying the voltage that is going into the E-Cat.” He then says that is 19 volts.

    It would be helpful to me if my confusion about this could be disentangled (and I am hoping that a knowledge of quantum mechanics will not be a pre-requisite for understanding it!)

    Thank you.

    Entangled regards,

    Rodney.

  293. Andrea Rossi

    Rodney Nicholson:
    The commentator is right in both cases. If you listen carefully the video (that today has been updated and made easier to listen, just go to http://www.ecatskdemo.com ), you will see that when the commentator reads the oscilloscope he specifies that that is the voltage of the current that enters the E-Cat SK; when he reads the voltage of the Amperometer-Voltmeter he specifies that it measures the voltage that enters the control panel: only a very small part of the energy that is consumed by the control panel is consumed by the E-Cat, because most of it goes to the cooling system.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  296. Dario

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I noticed that the enlarged photo of the spectrometer shown from you during the presentation on January 31st is the signature at 437.2 nm that gives evidence of the validity of your theory in paragraph 4 of your paper published on January 24th on Researchgate.
    By the way: I noticed that the presentation now on youtube and vimeo http://www.ecatskdemo.com has been upgraded: very nice!
    Godspeed,
    Dario

  297. Andrea Rossi

    Dario:
    Yes, the signature 437.2 nm is very important to give evidence of the theoretical principle in par. 4 of my paper.

    Hi Andrea,
    I saw the whole presentation of the E-CAT SK on the 31st january, and congratulate for the big effort and success in bringing this technology to the market, but looking at the streaming, a question is bouncing: why a so raw realization? no presentation of the persons involved in, only one instead of at least two cameras for different and more detailed images … your face appears in the video, only one second because you lowered yourself.
    Today I believe to know the motivation of this choice: your target is to not to reach too many clients, perhaps because your production capacity, the logistic and installation organization does not support a gigantic volume of requests, and perhaps the E-CAT SK need of test for more time for reliability.
    This is your approach, and I respect this, also because everyone has to take the step according to the leg, unluckily, this way will take more time for the global diffusion, and the world needs it as soon as possible.
    By the way, do not worry much for IP, there is enough room for everybody in this field, and you are the one that named this technology with his first name and surname.

    Very honoured to have sharing with you the same time over this earth.
    Alessandro Coppi

  307. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    Thank you for your opinion, but the presentation has been organized by me in the fashion I decided was the right one. The rawness was a precise choice and the fact that I have not been filmed was a precise choice too.
    I wanted to avoid any embellishment and render the situation such that nothing could attract the attendant but the core of the issue, also to avoid to lose time with persons that have not been able to get the core of the issue. We are in the pioneer phase of the marketing, not in the mass phase.
    Sincerely, from the feedback in the aftermath, I can see that most of the audience, especially the one that was the target of the presentation, appreciated it as it was, but it is correct to respect all the opinions. Maybe I am wrong.
    Thank you for your attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,

    I saw your online advertising, and I like it, many compliments.
    I would still like that those ads like this would be widespread everywhere. It seems in fact that this time the media (newspapers, TV, etc.) have not been aware of your presentation, except for a few isolated cases.
    I hope anyway that you have been satisfied with the response of the market. This is the main thing.

    Kind Regards,

  317. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I have compiled here the list of questions that I have received since the presentation last week that we were not able to cover during the live event.

    1. About production capacity — how many reactors can you produce per month and how quickly he can double the production of reactors?
    (Remember Tesla’s “production hell”)

    2. I understand that the E-Cat SK module installed as a room heater is probably in the North Central United State. As opposed to the reported outside temperature of around 0 C or 32F, nearly that entire region was reporting numbers like -20 to -30F. Did the SK module, responding to the demands of a thermostat, manage say the day of the presentation?

    3. Has the presentation of Thursday so far generated interest from potential new customers?

    4. What happens with the used fuel? Is a kind of recycling possible?

    5. When will be the first test of the SK with a flow calorimeter (as done in the Stockholm demonstration) ?

    6. Is the blue plasma in the center of the two orange plasma’s a “fireball” with a double layer? If so, are the two orange plasma’s the cathode and anode? If not, please explain what we are seeing.

    7. Is Lithium Aluminum Hydride the only fuel component of the SK?

    8. Is there any ordinary atmosphere in the fuel mixture?

  318. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    First of all, let me remind that the whole presentation video is on youtube and here
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Answers:
    1- we can produce the Ecat SK that we will need
    2- the Ecat SK gives the T that is demanded by means of a thermostat
    3- yes
    4- it is totally recyclable
    5- it is done every day by the Customers. See the video.
    6- I explained in the video all the information that we do not deem confidential. Our clients do not need further technological particulars.
    7- see our US Patent
    8- confidential
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  319. Fern Sievert

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Surely you had a precise target when you organized the presentation of the Ecat SK: did you reach your target?

  322. Michel

    Dear Rodney,

    Time is running out to counter climate change, we must go fast and strong in the deployment of the E-Cat. I really think that only an industrialist of international rank will be able to ensure promotion and massive diffusion of the reactor, potentially millions of units per month.

    Just look at the YouTube counter: at this moment 4804 views, against millions around the world when an a new car is launched.
    The fact that the current client does not communicate is also a drag on diffusion: I hope that future customers will be less cautious.

    I have no doubt that many captains of industry would be interested in this technology, energy being a major theme for humanity.
    If an invention has a large sales potential, it will undoubtedly interest the industry. IP purchases are often traded in billion$

    “Dear Dr Rossi,

    “Have you considered selling the invention to an industrialist? This is common in the industry, I am thinking of biotechnology, where innovative molecules are often bought at very high prices to start-ups.”
    = = = = = = = = =
    I think the two principal answers to the above suggestion are rather straightforward:

    A) No one has several trillion dollars to spare, with which to make payment for it.

    B) No doubt also, Mr. Rossi derives so much enjoyment from his continuing quest to perfect the products he is developing from his invention, why would he want to give that up? I can imagine that when he runs out of ideas he might change his mind. But it doesn’t appear likely that that will happen any time soon!

  328. John C Evans

    Dear Andrea:
    I have to admit I was wanting to see a more dramatic presentation. I had hoped excitement could generate more attention to your work. I do understand though this may not have been your purpose for the event, it was mainly for potential buyers. But I have one question on the math. If 1 controller using 380 wh/h for 1 ecatsk has a cop of 57 what is the power consumption of 1 controller managing multiple units? if its power usage is not increased by 380 wh/h for each ecatsk unit and the controller can operate many units wouldn’t the cop be much greater?
    Good luck and thank you.
    John C Evans

  329. Andrea Rossi

    John C. Evans:
    No, the COP would not be increased in assemblies.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  330. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Have you considered selling the invention to an industrialist? This is common in the industry, I am thinking of biotechnology, where innovative molecules are often bought at very high prices to start-ups.

    On the presentation itself I regret that your client did not intervene, figures in hand. It would have given resonance to your presentation.

  332. Tom Monroe

    Thanks for the demo. As a relative layman (I’m just an IT guy with an electronics technician background), I’m wondering if my untrained observations are a way to help illustrate what was shown in the demo: Most people will understand the amount of heat that comes off of a 1500 watt hairdryer (enough to go from a headfull of wet hair to dry in maybe 5 minutes). What the demo shows is the consumption of about 1/3 the power of a hairdryer, but more than 10 times as much heat. Looking at the critical comments, some of them (specifically those of the flavor of “it’s a heater, meh”) didn’t understand that one type of energy = another type of energy, and it’s impossible to make a more efficient electrical heater because by the first law of thermodynamics, it’s impossible to create (or destroy) energy (IE when you trade electrical energy for heat energy that whatever amount of power you consume, that’s exactly how much you get back).

  333. Andrea Rossi

    There are many parts of this world that need heat only for one portion of the year, but doesn’t need a lot of heat during the rest of the year for their commercial buildings. My home town of Chicago is an example. Can you install a profitable system in a location that for instance only needs heat for 25% of the year?

    We have been looking forward to the presentation of the commercial product E-Cat SK for a very long time.
    The expectations were therefore very high.

    It continues to amaze me how erudite our friend Andrea Rossi and his entourage are.

    Nowadays product presentations are often held with lots of blingbling, big stages and immense video and spectacle.

    None of this was used here.

    An old, hoarse man, who comes into the picture even without a head but with a yellow tie, calmly says that this blue pedal bin is a hypermodern, nuclear plasma reactor that multiplies the incoming energy at least fifty times.

    Then we get some technical images, where 99% of the population will click away after one minute.

    And so it goes on.

    Regardless of IT high-tech times, the calculations are done with pencil and paper, which even contains an error, and half of the explanation goes to conversion from the metric to the imperial system. In addition, corrections have been made with corrector fluid. I would not know where to buy that.

    A person would not dare to forward such a video to his family or friends.

    But …. appearances are deceiving.

    If you pay attention, and you have sufficient knowledge and insight to look through this seeming clumsy, you will see a following wonder of the world.

    “clumsiness” is with a wink: “Hand made by Andrea Rossi”, I think will go into history in the same way as Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso, Michelangelo or P.P. Rubens.

    He had once promised me in a distant past that I would get some of his discarded prototypes, but he seems to forget that over and over again.

    In addition, a technical manager will immediately recognize all the essential characteristics of the product: efficiency, robustness, simplicity, service.
    Another important aspect: this is about nuclear energy, so wannabe youtube jokers will never get to such a device. This is for professionals.

    There was no better way to make this presentation for the right target group.

    Thanks and once again a sincere congratulations,

    Koen

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Great presentation!
    The world will thank you forever.
    Man, what a weight I saw on your shoulders after these year of work, that now has unveiled itself magnificent.
    I pray for your health and for your family.
    Be well,

    @Tom Monroe,

    The reason is that there’s a Ballerina inside that makes the difference. And only a little bit of electrical energy is needed to trigger her.

    P.S. Here is a link to the first version of Van Morrisons’ song ‘Ballerina'(On Astral Weeks, 1968):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdB5N4meH9g

  344. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    – I was able to look at the whole presentation now, and I also agree with your calculations (except maybe with the ‘calorimetric comparision’, where I found another result for the Power needed to heat up the air from 0°C to 16°C: As the Cp of air is 1 J/(kg*K), I found: Power = 6700(kg/h)*1(J/(kg*K))*16K = 107200J/H = (107200/3600)Watt = 29.78 Watt, but I was quick, and maybe I’m wrong?)

    – But in the youtube video, at about 22 minutes and 45 seconds, you said something special about the 437.2nm (nanometer) signature, where you said that that possibly is the origin of the energy gain. Could you elaborate on that?

    – Many congratulations because you succeeded to let a plasma dance like a ballerina, while the hot fusion community still (and maybe never) will be able to do so. I wish you all success with your further work and the commercialization of the E-Cat SK!

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

    P.S. Although I more like the first version on his first solo LP (‘Astral Weeks’), here a link to a live version of Van Morrisons’ song ‘Ballerina’ 😉 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfaaaDX_Uh0

  345. orsobubu

    Dear Andrea, I would have stared at the beautiful plasma dancing for hours… and actually I stared at it for two hours… I suggest that in one of the next iteration of the design of the external case, you could add (as a luxury option) a 12″-13″ LED screen projecting a video captured in real time by a little camera inside the reactor, in the same way you made at the presentation.

  346. Andrea Rossi

    Good morning Andrea.

    I hope the vocal “crisis” has passed and I hope it is nothing serious. Interesting what he said about the management of the SK that will be installed around the world.
    As I had already expressed in previous emails, when the time comes, I would be interested in obtaining the “license-patent (abilitazione)” for the management of chargers. I do not deny that I see very well, in this phase of heat sales, the installation also in large structures such as: schools, universities, hospitals, shopping centers, large residential buildings with a unified thermal power plant, service companies (offices only) ), where there is a specialized company to manage the “boiler room” …..

    I always follow her with affection and esteem.

    PS: when you will make the ecat SF (Sergio Focardi)?

  356. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    The movement starts after a while.

  359. Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Congratulations on bringing your Ecat SK Heat Product to the market. The Ecat SK unit is impressively compact and very neat.

    Please confirm, if you are able to answer:

    1. Do both the input and the output pipes enter and exit the casing through the gold coloured collar at the top of the unit?

    2. When multiple Ecat SK units are in use together at the same location, is there a minimum distance required between the working units?

    I was quite enthralled by the plasma “Ballerina”, very wonderful.
    You have come a long way since I started following your work in 2011.

    Kind Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

  360. Andrea Rossi

    Martyn Aubrey:
    1- yes
    2- no
    Thank you for your sustain, but attention: I am a jealous lover of the Ballerina!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  361. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You asked me to re-phrase the following:
    4. How quickly does the output thermal power go to a “No thermal output condition” from a full output power condition?
    5. How are spent assemblies changed and how long, if any, is the system down time?

    The intent of question #4 was to determine the time it takes to shut-down the thermal output after the eCat-SK has been operating at full output power. Specifically, if the eCat-SK is operating in an SSM mode, how long until its output is zero? Ignore heat exchanger latent heat considerations. The desired answer is in units of seconds, not an answer of “not very long”.

    Question #5 deals with maintainability aspects of the eCat-SK assembly. Is your maintenance philosophy one of “remove and replace” an entire delivered system? If so, who does this and how long would the lack of heat time period be (hours, days)? Assume a scheduled maintenance period. The eCat-SK reactor units, allegedly, have an operating lifetime of at least 6 months, perhaps a year. If no other system failure occurs, only spent reactors, do you send a replacement eCat-SK reactor to the customer’s location and have him replace it, or do you supply technicians to replace the unit(s), or do you ship out a replacement system and replace the entire system?

    The analogy is my residential furnace that once a year (or twice) I have an air filter changed. I could do this myself, I could hire a serviceman through a local company to do this (and also service the furnace), or I could have the entire furnace replaced. During the servicing or the replacement, I would not have heat, so I would schedule it for an appropriate time of the year. But the time without heating would be understood by all.

  362. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    4- the stop is instantaneous, the transitory of the stop is minutes
    5- it depends on the situation. Both options are open.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  363. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea,
    Would it be possible to use photocells to produce electricity by the light of the Ecat SK plasma?
    Warm Regards,
    Chuck Davis

  364. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Yes, but the efficiency is terribly low. Better thermalize. Obviously if you turn into electricity the light, yu will pay for it, based in the 1st T.P., with a decrease of heat very high, due to the low efficiency of the conversion. Much more efficient the Carnot cycle.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Mr Rossi:
    About the bubble columns shown yesterday in the video : one of the two was not operating, it was closed with a cap ! besides, the bubble columns must be recalibrated: who and when makes the calibration?

  372. Andrea Rossi

    Jim:
    One column is operating, the other is spare, Every 90 days the bubble column must be recalibrated, so the client puts the spare one in operation ( just turns the cap ) and sends the other for recalibration to us.
    I remind to you and all the Readers that the whole presentation can be reviewed here:

    The audio has been raised to make my bad voice easy to be heard and errors have been eliminated, like my mistake of adding 273 to turn K into C instead of subtracting…luckily this did not compromise the calculations, because in the equation of Boltzmann are considered K, not C. I have been very stupid not to second check the paper board… I was under pressure and made an error.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding the eCat-SK 22kW unit and Controller:

    1. What is the power consumption of an eCat-SK assembly when it is operating but no thermal output is needed?
    2. How long does it take to go from a “no thermal Power required” condition to full output power?
    3. What is the maximum power consumption during going to maximum output power?
    4. How quickly does the output thermal power go to a “No thermal output condition” from a full output power condition?
    5. How are spent assemblies changed and how long, if any, is the system down time?
    6. Are there any additional costs or charges beside that for the delivered thermal output energy?
    7. How long after a fully executed contract will full operation occur?
    8. If and when a failure in the eCat-SK system occurs, what is the down time? Weekend support? 24/7 support?
    9. How are conflicts resolved if there is a good faith disagreement between what amount of energy has been provided as determined by the User and that claimed by eCat-SK supplier?
    10. What warranty provisions/guarantees are applicable/provided?

  377. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- zero, because when energy is not needed the Ecat is shut down
    2- the Ecat reaches rapidly the average energy output, longer transitories will be due from the heat exchangers, but this is not our turf
    3- for the Ecat SK 380 Wh/h
    4- I do not understand the question: can you rephrase it ?
    5- same as in 4
    6- no
    7- depends on the power
    8- the down time depends on the kind of problem, the intervention is immediate
    9- this issue is duly foreseen in the contracts
    10- same as in 9
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  378. Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on officially putting the E-Cat SK on the market.

    Three questions if I may:

    1. Do you plan to update the official E-Cat website (https://ecat.com/) with the SK product specifications for potential customers to analyse?

    2. Would you consider having an industrialised E-Cat SK operational in a Leonardo Corporation owned show-room, for the purpose of inviting potential clients to observe it? This would have an operational cost for you, but it would be the best marketing money can buy.

    3. What sounds come out of the E-Cat SK blue box?

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Daniel De Caluwe’:
    The plasma is in the high density area around the lower wavelength, which has a surface of 1 cm^2. In the spectrometer graph is clearly visible the spectrum of the plasma.
    About the parts you lost, no problem: within max 1 hour you will be able to see the whole presentation on Youtube and on Vimeo; by the way, I also corrected the stupidity I have written ( excess of pressure at the moment) where I added 273 to convert K into C, instead of subtracting 273. It is a mistake that I always do when I am tired, I do not know why…obviously I have corrected it. Anyway, this is an error that has not at all affected the calculations, because in the Boltzmann equation we used the Kelvin, not the Celsius. The conversion in Celsius was a useless protuberance…

    Because of a wrong setting in my browser (not the most common one), I missed the beginning of the demonstration, and therefore I don’t know if it was right to send my question to your info@leonardocorp1996.com address, that probably is more intended for commercial contacts. If so, I apologize (The reason was that I missed the beginning of the demonstration). Here is my question, about the beautiful plasma shown in life stream video: (But first a remark in advance: Now I think the spot at the top was the head of ‘the ballerina’ plasma, isn’t it?, but at the moment I wrote this message I didn’t notice): I wrote: I see two spots of light. The one below is the ‘ballerina’ in a more or less cylindric form (or like a pinda nut). And on top is a second (more circular or elliptical) spot, with in the middle a white glow, with a yellow glow and orange glow around it. Is this a reflection of the plasma (the ‘ballerina’) below it, or is it real like it is? Or is it another view from above, while the ‘ballerina’ form is seen from aside? On the top of the pinda nut (= the head of the ‘ballerina’) there is a blue glow around the white one. The part below of the pinda nut also has a yellow and orange glow around it. Can you explain these colours? (Anyway, I like the plasma 😉

    Many thanks in advance,

    And a lot of success with your work!

    Daniel

  384. Hi Andrea:

    Regarding my ‘mountain time’ comment: Still, right now – here in Alberta, Canada – I have seen nothing at E-catSKdemo. All I see is still the draped mystery object. Although it did play the music from ‘2001’ exactly at 9:00AM ET.

    Just so you are aware of this.

    I look forward to watching it on Youtube.

  395. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have a rare opportunity that very few people will ever have. With the E-Cat SK, you have a technology that could not only supply the planet with a plentiful and clean source of energy, but the most profound discovery made in perhaps the last century. Today, at the presentation, it will be your choice whether or not to disclose the information needed to forever awaken the world to the fact it exists: or, on the other hand, continue down a strategic path of limited disclosure that keeps virtually all of mankind ignorant of the breakthrough you’ve made and the potential it holds. As you indicate, the SK is at this time a commercial product, already beyond the stages of theory, experiment, and prototype. This puts you ahead of your competitors, most of whom are still tinkering with powder based systems. But to serve the true purpose of your discovery so that it will be universally accepted and utilized by all humanity, you must have faith that the source of all knowledge will make sure it shines brightly if you let the world see what you have discovered.

    Matthew 5

    Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

    15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

    16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Technologically speaking, the SK is the brightest light on God’s Earth, and he gave you the intellect, work ethic, and inspiration to create it in the first place. If you take it out from under the bushel of secrecy to reveal its wonder and potential, I have confidence God will allow it’s potential to finally be revealed to humanity and your many years of sacrifice and hard work to be recognized and rewarded. It’s time humanity learns that not only is LENR a reality, but a refined, commercial system is already completed. Not a few clients, not a few followers of your journal, not the currently minuscule LENR community: but every last living soul on this planet. All it will take is faith.

    This is your chance to walk on water.

    Let go. Let God.

    Today the E-Cat is being introduced,
    The start of a new era begins
    People can never be excused
    Not to use its energy, since

    It is powerful and very clean
    It uses only little resources
    No CO2, what does it mean?
    It may stop global warming causes

    Running out of polluting energy
    May now be stopped forever
    No reason for future anarchy
    Yes, this product is clever

    So people, promote the E-Cat now
    Help to bring it into the market
    You know it gives future, that’s why and how
    It really must be your primary target.

    Dear Andrea!

    We believe that you have chosen the only right tactics and strategy for the smooth entry of the revolutionary E-Cat energy technology into the global energy system. By ensuring the sustainability of the energy source market when switching to an environmentally friendly, safe, cheap and limitless source of energy, you take into account the interests of all market participants and thereby protect the economies of different countries from possible shocks and crises, giving time for a smooth restructuring of energy systems. Fully controlled by Leonardo and its partners, the transition to a new energy production technology will allow for a thoughtful and calculated from all sides replacement of obsolete energy sources with new ones according to the developed plan. We are confident in the success of the implementation of the ambitious plans of LEONARDO and wish you good health, dear Andrea!

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I suspect that the video will be fairly boring, showing an inanimate object with various gauges that one must squint at to read.

    Why not introduce a little drama by splashing a bit of water on some of the bared heat pipes. In other words, show some steam.

    Giuseppe, someone says exactly the same with me. In an answer to his readers, the (most) famous italian contemporary journalist Indro Montanelli recalled his interviews with recognized geniuses around the world during his career; about physicist Enrico Fermi, he described him as a totally dumb person, up to the point that it was completely useless try a conversation with him on general topics. He also extended this characteristic to almost all the scientific geniuses he met, apart from Einstein, who described as an amazingly interesting personality. So probably you and me became pure asinine geniuses after following Andrea; and Andrea himself, who was already a genius, is supposedly at high risk in my opinion.

  415. Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for your answer to my Casimir force consideration. Now, I have another point. I looked at Parkhomov’s isotope data, it’s tables in his paper. Many new elements seem to appear, but I don’t find evidence for changed isotope ratios. That is suspicious. Maybe it’s chemical enrichment and not transmutation, in his case. There is, I think, a mechanism how such enrichment could occur, with LENR: Local ionization breaks up molecules in fluid. It also creates free radicals. Those radicals react with the nearby solid surface. In this way, minor impurities might get enriched at the surface near LENR hotspots. (Not sure if hotspots occur in your case, but that’s not the point.) So I say this: when researching the transmutation signal, beware of false positives.

    Earlier I took for granted that the energy must come from the nuclei, because where else could it come from. Now I am not quite so sure any more. Maybe (just maybe) it is something more exotic, like creation of negative mass stuff. Since dark matter and dark energy exist, we know that the standard model is not quite complete. Recently there was science news that X-ray telescope quasar data indicates that dark energy has depended on time. If true, it indicates that dark energy is not vacuum energy, but some “stuff” that has some dynamics. Maybe negative energy particles, like Jamie Farnes recently suggested in his recent controversial paper. The point regarding the E-cat: If you see evidence for genuine transmutation, good. If not, maybe it’s not necessarily a measurement error.

    Pekka Janhunen:….. elecrons are current rings.

    Are photons also some kind of rings ? If they are, is it reasonable that they do not have a higgs-boson-core, but can add up to an electron or be substracted from an electron ?

    I’m just trying to study and understand things.

  430. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I was watching a Science Channel documentary on space junk orbiting around the Earth. There are thousands of pieces in orbit. It comes to mind that eCat SK technology might have an application.

    I suggest a robotic spacecraft, powered by an eCat-SK reactor (once in orbit around the Earth), that is directed to search out small space junk (screws, broken pieces of solar cells, etc.) and then uses the intense UV light to vaporize the space junk both towards the Earth or away from the Earth, effectively lowering the particulate mass of the space junk (vaporizing it) and bringing it out of orbit (to be consumed in the Earth’s atmosphere) or to reach escape velocity to leave the Earth. Some of the space junk could also be used to propel the robotic ship to capture the next assigned piece of space junk.
    I assume you are very busy with the demonstration. I hope it goes well.

  431. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Interesting, but for now we must stay on the Earth.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks for your answer regarding investment. You are right that the SEC regulates “crowdfunding”. It is possible and many companies much less mature than yours do it already. I do understand that for you it has little benefits and this would probably be a distraction. You don’t need the money. You would only do it for your supporters.

    For your readers, here is the official regulation from the
    SEC website. https://www.sec.gov/smallbusiness/exemptofferings/regcrowdfunding

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    First of all, thank you for the theoretical update you promised !
    380W is a significant consumption for the control system, given that the input power of the reactor is comparatively very low. The question is where does the difference go:
    – Is this regulator built from a PC chassis, or have you created your own electronic circuitry?
    – Do you use additional RF heating for plasma (as is the case for hot melting)?

    A commercial solution for the controller is attractive for the software aspect, but is generally not optimized for consumption. If the design has been developed internally, there may be room to improve the regulator’s power consumption (some microcontrollers, FPGA) what do you think?
    Anyway, the overall COP of x58 is already impressive !

    Michel

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You replied:
    “1- wrong. This is the maximum power sustainable for a single control panel
    2- confidential
    3- what do you mean?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    1. So I understand the maximum current eCat-SK reactor assembly will output a total of approximately 1/4 MW of thermal power?
    2. I assume the Controller interface will be the same as the single unit?
    3. Although the Controller itself may be of a different size/capability?”

    Could you please clarify, consistent with your confidentiality requirements, on the following?

    It appears on the current eCat-SK variant, that you have stated that up to 10 of the eCat-SK reactors could be combined within a single assembly. You also indicated that a Controller would be required to control the operation of one or more reactors. You also used the term “single control panel”. I believe you had also stated that a different Controller would be required between the 20kW eCat-SK reactor and the 100kW eCat-SK reactor, although I could be in error here.

    1. Is a “Single Control Panel” equivalent to a Controller?
    2. Assuming a delivered system may consist of a single eCat-SK (current variant) or a number (up to 10) of these reactors, may the same Single Control Panel be used to control the one or the many reactor(s)?
    3. If possible, it would nice to receive a narrative description as how different power levels are provided, changed in the field, maintained, troubleshot, replaced, modified in capacity, etc., consistent with your Confidentiality requirements.

  441. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- yes
    2- the many reactors
    3- This is not an information that interests our customers. We just deduct the price of the energy we consume from the price of the heat we sell.

    Dr. Rossi,
    I could be interpreting this wrong (clearly), but your Researchgate paper seems to hint at the possibility that a functioning deuterium based E-Cat is possible with calculateable shifts in the input NMR frequency and output emission spectrum frequency. If true:
    – would that be considered additional confirmation of your paper’s thesis?
    – Is that something you’ve tried or plan to try?

    Interesting paper, by the way. It’s very much beyond my level of physics training, but I found it very readable and quite intriguing, nonetheless.

    Dear Andrea,

    With regard to getting your early adopter customers to come forward and admit they are successfully using your technology, I suspect that very few if any would want to openly admit to this, I think they would see very little gain from the publicity, and far greater profit from keeping quiet.

    Gain From publicising:

    To be seen as an innovative company, a market leader and an early adopter.
    Showing green credentials on having lowered carbon emissions.

    Profit from NOT publicising and keeping secret for as long as possible:

    Not tying up resources and time dealing with and fending off the news media.
    Keep prices same, less costs, more profits for shareholders.
    With less costs, ability to marginally undercut competition and control market prices.
    If competition learns of the company adopting new tech, they may in turn adopt to compete back on a level field.
    Workers / unions may demand wage rises if the company openly states it has more profits.
    E-Cat technology may alarm workforce, neighbours or customers.
    E-Cat technology may attract attention and scrutiny from local authorities.
    Customers of the company may pressurise for discounts if they know there is room for manoeuvre.

    Dear Andrea,
    As of this Thursday, you will have an industrialised product officially on the market. Congratulations. Do you intend to allow your long time supporters to participate in this success by allowing them to buy some shares in Leonardo Corp? There are ways you can do this without the need to go public, as I’m sure your lawyers would be able to advise to you. I know you say that investment is risky, but that is the nature of any investment. Even money in a bank are not perfectly safe. You could even set a maximum that each person can buy. It’s just a nominal token that would allow your long time supporters to participate in your success.
    Best regards,
    Patrick

  453. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    I thank you very much for your trust in our work, but what you are proposing would put us against the law. To collect money from the public, whatever the amount, is necessary the authorization of the SEC and we are not mature for this, so far.

  454. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Within a few years you will have produced TWh of heat and the first reactors return for refurbishment. I am sure you will recover the materials that come out to make place for new. These recovered materials may be Helium, Nickel 62 and possibly others elements.
    I am sure, now you are going commercial, you must have some idea what to do with it, therefore:
    Just some questions about those recovered materials:
    1. Do you think that the recovered materials have increased in market value in comparison to the original materials?
    2. Can they be sold or is it just waste, which you would trash?
    3. Can you give us an overview of the produced elements including their isotopic distribution?
    4. If not, would you consider publishing it in the future for commercial purposes?
    Thanks, Kind regards, Gerard

    to you and to those who have sensitivity for peoples suffering from hunger, thirst, medicines, lack of what is useful for survival, from Italy isolated from a Europe insensitive to the needs of the so-called Third World, I propose:

    we open minds and hearts and form a “Chain of solidarity” to finance an organization that finances and promotes the dissemination of Ecat modules for distressed communities.
    In the group of people who are certainly endowed with culture and intelligence that follows you, there should not be missing those who with managerial skills and generous heart can lead this initiative.
    May God help you for your work. We must pray for you and your team.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The world will be different.
    The solutions that you will make available are of a different shape and size so that different, independent investments become possible. Both large and small, and suitable for all terrains.

    Humanity is not yet able to make integrated, global investments that would be needed without this technology to provide an answer to some of the global problems that people have caused themselves.

    Since you always keep talking about the market, I assume that you follow this reasoning. The market is an outdated concept because nowadays people can not adequately assess the long-term consequences and the indirect consequences of their choices. If at least they would want to take this into account at the expense of foreseeable benefits.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    I wish you good luck and success in the commercial presentation.

    I am really curious on what scale this technology will begin to conquer the world.

    I find it a bit unfortunate that no drawings or visualizations have been included in the scientific publications. I do not understand much about all those formulas.
    What I do understand is that resonances are generated, so that electrons and protons are coupled to each other in an extraordinary way, and as far as I can understand, it comes down to the fact that only the hydrogen transforms into something else, where the difference in energy beams and bumps away.

    After your presentation we wake up in a different world.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  475. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    After the presentation the world will be exactly the same, but, in time, our contribution will increase the moment exponentially.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  476. Dear Andrea,
    Concerning your paper. Using Puthoff-Piestrup (2004) formulas, I get that the voltage of such hollow electron shell is very high if the number of electrons in the shell is large, such as N=1e11 as Rossi exemplifies in Section 1. I get that the voltage is 2*sqrt(N)*3.7 kV. If N=1e11, then the voltage is 3.4 gigavolts, which does not sound realistic because it would release strong gamma radiation when the state somehow decays. At the same time the energy content of the shell state would be only 37 J. In such shell, the number of electrons per area is independent of the size, so the diameter grows as proportional to sqrt(N). It seems to me that if such hollow shells play a role, they must be smaller than the atom in size and the number of electrons per object must be modest.
    regards, /pekka

  477. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    As I wrote in my paper, ” At this scale the electron should not be modeled as a point-like-particle, NOT EVEN AT A FIRST APPROXIMATION”. In your calculation, you consider only the electrostatic potential of N points like particles on the surface of a charged sphere. THE ELECTRONS DEFINITELY ARE NOT POINT-LIKE CHARGED OBJECTS, but current rings with an associated magnetic field, that cannot be ignored in electron interactions. By the way, should the electron be a point shaped particle, the associated electromagnetic field would be infinite, like to say that with one electron you could make the universe. In certain cases ( for example in vacuum tube space-charge ) magnetic interactions may play a fundamental role also at very long distances.
    I think in the Ecat Lorentz and Coulomb forces speak between them the language of phases that allow them to “understand and compensate” each other.
    This said, energy is not necessarily conveyed by a single type of radiation and can also be thermalized by means of kinetic energy, that I suppose could also be due to the reduction of electrons speed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Thank you!
    Just some questions about the presentation:
    1. Will you present it alone?
    2. Will you be able to tell how you measured the electrical power that runs into the SK. (800 uW)
    3. Will you be able to explain what atomic reaction(s) produce the generated heat?
    4. BTW: Did you analyze the isotopic distribution and elements of the E-Cat SK reactants after different durations of operation.?
    I wish you and your team a perfect presentation of the E-Cat SK next @ 1/31.

    If we talk about theorie during the presentation I miss the target. The correct room to talk of theory is in contexts like Researchgate, Arxiv etc., where the publication can be made fast and familiar to the scientific echelons.
    4- yes

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Can you tell us something about your marketing plans after the presentation?
    Have you got any customers lined up already? Are you going to embark on wide marketing campaign?
    Alternatively, are you just going to wait for customers convinced in the economic advantage of using your E-Cat plants, to come to you?

    I wish you success in all your endeavors!

    Obro

  483. Andrea Rossi

    Obro:
    Let us talk about this during the presentation. Even questions like this can be forwarded during the presentation.
    Thank you for the wish!
    Warm Regards,

  484. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    The experiment you describe in your ResearchGate paper, was this done on the E-Cat at your customer’s site, or was this done in a laboratory?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  485. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Was done in a laboratory What we will see in the video is not the one decribed in the experiment.
    Warm Regards,

    JPR Your comment January 27th 2019 is absolutely ridiculous. I am amazed that considering how busy Andrea and his team is that he actually replied to your post. Consider yourself lucky that he did but what puzzles me is who is paying you to put your name to such nonsense. Regards Eric Ashworth

  487. Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth:
    Sorry, but JPR just wanted to say that our paper has risen more attention than a paper about the ITER. What’s wrong?

    People is not stupid. When their Engineering Gurus go around in TV broadcasting, saying that the hot nuclear fusion does not emit radiations or produce radioactive materials everybody understands that this is pure B.S. and that during a nuclear fusion at millions of Kelvin you produce radioactive atoms with short emilife, therefore extremely dangerous. I have been disgusted to watch recently a guru talk in TV with an anchor- pseudo- scientific journalist feed the audience with this phrase, showing a model of a plant that will never work: ” the ITER [for which had just received another funding for 500 million euro from the taxpayer (NDR)] makes fusion between atoms of hydrogen to make helium, so no radioactivity is made and it is safe, no pollution” and the pseudo-scientific journalist was smiling and approving…usque tandem do you think you can fool people like that ? The numbers you cite speak the answer.

    Hello A. Rossi

    When the thermostat turns the reactor “off”, is the controller completely shut down or does it consume power to perform certain functions essential to boiler operation?
    Best regards

  493. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    It consumes power for the coling system for several minutes.

  498. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding your last response and the eCat-SK series:

    1. Does the eCat-SK controller handle only one eCat-SK reactor unit? If multiple, what is the maximum number controlled by one Controller?
    2. Do the thermal output measurements by Infrared measurements closely match those determined by water flow rate and change in water temperature measurements?
    3. Regarding your Jan 31 presentation, will live measurements be presented or only a video recording of the measurements?

  499. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Have you thought about contacting Tesla to assist you in manufacturing your devices? They are the leaders in battery construction using automated assembly devices and make more Lithium batteries than any other manufacturer. I think many procedures they employ can be used for your purpose.

    Greater output regards.

  501. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    From your paper you indicate a Controller power consumption of nominally 380W and a very small average power consumption of an eCat SK reactor. Questions:

    1. Can the Controller still control up to 50 (or more) eCat SK reactors?
    2. Are the eCat SK reactors connected serially with respect to the Controller unit control cabling?
    3. Does the Controller power consumption significantly (assume significantly means more than 10% change from 1 eCat SK reactor to the maximum number of eCat SK reactors) change as more eCat SK reactors are added under its control?

  502. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- no
    2- no
    3- the proportion does not change

    Dear Andrea,

    Does the reduction of the spectral line for the pico-metric aggregate when deuterium is utilized instead of protium also produce a reduction in excess energy production?

    During the test mentioned in your most recent paper, you state that theromocouples were used to measure the delta t of the cooling air. Did you also measure the volume of cooling air and use the delta t to calculate the output power via air flow calorimetry? If so, what were the results?

  513. Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    1- confidential
    2- this matter will be dealt with during the presentation
    Warm Regards,

  514. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    A question, if it has not been asked yet.
    In the E-Cat SK, is it possible for a Customer to vary by hand the heat flow rate (decrease, increase) at a constant temperature, using, for example, a knob or something similar?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  515. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    The temperature is maintained by means of a thermostat, as it happens in all the standard heaters. Once set the target T, the thermostat maintains it turning on and off the Ecat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  516. Hergen

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    in your scientific paper the power consumption of the control panel is 380W for one e-cat. We know that one control panel can control much more than one e-cat. Is the relation of power consumtion of the control panel and the number of e-cats linear? I mean: If a contol panel controls 10 e-cats, will the power consumtion increase 10-fold?

    If the relation is sublinear, the COP will increase with the number of e-cats.

    Thank you for your answer,

    E. Hergen

    In assemblies the per-unit consume decreases.

    Dear Andrea.
    I fully agree in your decision to only provide heat. The world is full of companies that are experts on transforming heat to other useful services.
    As supplier of a new heat source, is it important for you to show all the benefits of this heat source.
    Are you looking at the possibility of combining SK and by supercritical CO2 in the recompression closed Brayton Cycle? These two technologies seem to be able to bring forward the benefits of both in a superior combination. Also, for minor installations and possibly for use in the transport sector.
    I am truly looking forward to January 31.

    The impressive test made with the Ecat QX on November 24 2017 has been made with calorimetry only, because you could not use the spectrometer for the light from the screen. Will you make both measurements with calorimetry and spectrometry on January 31st? It could be very interesting to compare.

    Hi Andrea:

    I understand your need right now to concentrate marketing efforts in one main direction to generate a cash flow sufficient to finance expansion of production capacity to match demand as needed and develop new ‘products’.

    But it seems to me that the best E-Cat solution to supplying most of the world’s retail electricity market might be to couple your most efficient E-Cat with whatever turns out to be the most appropriate carnot cycle equipment, for installation as a single unit to provide power for communities with populations of, say, 50,000 or more.

    This would mean selling electric power – in competition with the present electric utility companies – to the communities themselves, which would then be distributed over existing local transmission lines.

    It is not difficult to imagine that many of the world’s less capable local governments could make a huge mess of trying to figure out themselves how to buy your heat and convert it efficiently to electricity.

    In my opinion, being able to provide a ‘turnkey’ unit of this kind could act as a huge marketing inducement, since the major utility companies are effectively doing this already. And the unit could be set up to sell power back to the grid (if the grid still exists!) whenever local power demand is below capacity.

    I am not suggesting that you should be working on this today. But I think it should be near the top of your list of priorities for development of future products.

    Rodney.

  543. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I asked about the production of electricity in your plants, as you have written about it.
    I was asking if you were already ready to sell also electricity.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  544. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:

    P,

    A heat pump is a very efficient mechanism for both heating and cooling a house. I had one installed in my son’s Florida house. Unfortunately, as I live in New Hampshire, it is too cold here for a heat pump to work efficiently (for heating). So if you live in a warm climate, it makes more sense to move the heat in or out of your home than to generate heat or to generate heat for electricity and then for cooling your home. Bottomline: It is generally more energy efficient to move the heat around than to generate it.

  551. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I thought you would demonstrate an E-Cat heating a the factory hall of your partner or a customer. If so, I would assume the cloak under which the E-Cat is now covered (on http://www.ecatskdemo.com/) should be evaporated by now, or not?
    What is wrong in my thinking?
    Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

  552. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    He,he,he…no, the Ecat SK of the recorded video that will be shown in operation during the direct streaming on http://www.ecatskdemo.com is not the same that is now hidden under the veil like a ghost and that will be unveiled at the beginning of the direct streaming: this one will be shown and described in a studio and will not be in operation. You will see two E-Cat SK then, one in operation and one in the show room of the above mentioned website.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Ghosts don’t evaporate

  553. P

    Dear Dr. Rossi
    I need to change the heat source for my house in a few years. Should I wait for E-CAT domestic or should I invest in a heat pump that my neighbors do?

    Dear Andrea

    This forgotten 1996 interview with M. Fleischmann seems illuminating

    https://www.infinite-energy.com/iemagazine/issue11/fleishmann2.html

    T: I’m happy to say I’m at least beginning to make some progress in the direction of not understanding…

    F: Well, you have worked in this field, haven’t you. Just think of the space charge around a cathode, you understand that?

    T: Well I must admit, to be honest, I’ve rather tended to take things like the thermionic diode pretty much for granted.

    F: Well, before our next meeting try to tell me whether you understand the space charge around a cathode.

    G.

  558. Andrea Rossi

    Giorgio:
    Thank you for this memo from Infinite Energy.
    Warm Regards,

  559. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I assume, when clients ask what fuel is used, the environmental impact of using eCat technology, etc., you will tell them:

    1. The fuel is a trade secret, or similar statement
    2. There is no environmental pollution due to refueling.
    3. No emitted radiation higher than normal background radiation levels.
    4. In summary, other than heat, no environmental impact to operating the eCat.

    If all the above is correct, then potential clients have all necessary assurances, in my opinion.

  560. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I agree.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  561. Sven

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your answer “my IT guys say so” makes me a bit worried.
    Public live streaming on the web demands a heavy and expensive setup if you should safely reach a very large audience.
    Are you using YouTube Live function behind your own domain?
    If not I really suggest you reconsider, there is still a good time to change.
    YouTube Live is easy and has all the infrastructure to meet any demand for viewing while keeping out all possible attacks from your opponents.

    Best Regards and Good Luck on January 31.

    Dear Andrea,

    1) Do you pledge that the pre-recorded video that is broadcast will not be manipulated or edited in anyway whatsoever? In other words, for the segments shown, the viewer will see the same exact scene (within the limits of the camera equipment) that a person on site would have seen with the naked eye.

    2) Will you reveal for how long the SK unit demonstrated and/or other units have been operating without a re-fill or addition of hydrogen or other fuels?

    3) If the purpose of this presentation is to attract clients, I believe that they would like to know what elements of fuel are being used in a device that is allegedly producing enormous energy from nuclear reactions. Will you reveal, with no details on proportions or processing, all components in the plasma?

    4) Will you present the details of your plan to ensure that the QX/SK proliferates around the world as rapidly as possible? For example, to have an immediate, significant benefit, millions of units will need to be manufactured within the coming year.

    1- this is not a question, this is an insult
    2- I already did in this blog
    3- the clients are interested only to the cost of the energy, they buy energy, not licenses or plants
    4- thank you for the suggestion

    Dear Andrea,
    Sorry for the unconveniance, my IPad didn’t warn for any phishing.
    The YouTube link shows two volleyball teams in which one player in white clothings does the most fabulous savings to keep his team in the game. It is spectacular how they made it.
    I thought that it must be you that guy in white, preparing for the presentation on 1/31.
    I just hope my IPad isn’t infected.
    Good presentation, kind regards, Gerard.

    A very big request for the video player version to have the function of subtitles, with a built-in translator.
    I (and probably very many) find it difficult to perceive English by ear.
    Thank you very much.
    Do not allow discrimination on the basis of language! (joke).

    Dear Angelo V.,

    it is not good idea: masmedia (press, TV etc.) at such important event as presentation of stunning breakthrough new clear technology – new energy device.

    If such masmedia was involved, there hundreds thousands companies would be prepare for next era. They stop waste investment into obsolete dirty tech (coal, oil etc.) and save a few hundreds billion immediately.

    This is BAD, BAD and BAD. It is far better doing such important presentation without masmedia. Some 1000 companies is already aware of Dr. Rossi tech and these hundreds thousands other companies must be keep in IGNORANCE, so they may continue to invest in obsolete tech. In such way these waste investment may be in 300-900 Billion per year. I love such attitude.

    Roughly one third of these owners of mid and smaller companies in IGNORANCE mode will later conduct suicide, because they will owe these wasted money, wasted into obsolete tech and will capable to compete against these, who stopped investment into old tech soon enough.

    Do You know better scenario for high quality drama?

  589. Kim

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Will you also show a measurement made by means of the spectrometer, that failed in Stockholm on November 2017 due to the light emitted from the big screen?

  591. Dear Andrea,
    are you already using standard advertising channels (internet, media, social) to publicize your energy supply?
    I have read that potential buyers must meet many requirements in order to become your customers, but in addition to a discount on the energy market price, what does you offer them? Are they involved in some sort of mission against global pollution or is only an economic deal?
    Will future customers be free to publicly express their judgment on the service/product received?

    Best regards
    Angelo V.

  592. Andrea Rossi

    Angelo V.:
    We sell the heat to our Customers. They can do in their factories what they want. The sole restriction we put is that they cannot open the black boxes of the Ecat. Particular agreements can be made in specific situations, but a Customer is the sole sovereign of his concern.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  593. Steven N. Karels

    Jim Rosenbur,

    If AR sells heat to his customers, then it should not matter whether the internal reactors are an ensemble of 20kW or 100kW reactors. It may make a difference to AR in terms of his cost model but I assume it will be transparent to the customer who is only buying heat.

  594. Bernie Morrissey

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    How long will it take from when you get an order for an
    E-Cat SK until it is delivered on site.

    Thanks
    Bernie Morrissey

  595. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Morrissey:
    It depends on the specific situations.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  596. Jim Rosenbur

    Dr Rossi,
    if you discuss the 100 kW Ecat at the event of the end of January, do you think customers will be tempted to delay orders for the 20 kW units?

  597. Andrea Rossi

    Jim Rosenbur:
    The 100 kW Ecat is far from being ready to be installed to sell heat to our Customers.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  598. Steven N. Karels

    P,

    Given your desired target goal of replacing 259GW of electrical power generating plants, it seems doable to me (and perhaps to AR).

    A 1GW electrical power plant will require 2.5GW of thermal power assuming a Carnot efficiency of 40% (modern power plants are reporting a 40 – 45% efficiency)

    Assuming the 100kW eCat reactor is successful, then a 1GW electrical power plant will require 25,000 of the 100kW eCat reactors.

    To meet your target of 259GW, a total of about 6.5 million reactors will be needed. The transition time (changing coal to LENR) will likely be 10 to 20 years so the average production requirement will be between 300,000 and 700,000 units per year, or roughly one new reactor every minute.

    If the eCat works and if high yield, automated production can be achieved, I think it is doable.

  599. Italo R.

    Dr. Rossi,
    are the dimensions of SK 100 kW much larger than the actual E-Cat?
    How big could a 1 MW plant be using 10 E-Cat SK 100?
    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  603. P

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I’m concerned about the global warming for my children and the environmental problems at the local level regarding extraction of coal and oil. Unfortunately it looks hopeless to reach the UN climate panel IPCC’s target with maximum 1.5 -2.0 ° C. Recently, I read that 2,400 new coal power plants are being planned in the world until 2030 and satellite imagery today shows that China will add new coal-fired capacity to its grid with an estimated power of 259 GW.
    How much capacity do you and your team have for this big market?
    It has been an exciting journey to follow your work throughout the years and I’m looking forward to January 31st.
    Best regards
    P

    Good morning.
    Andrea, I do not know anything about January 31st presentation. Nevertheless, I am asking you a “favour”: should you plan to have (in this presentation)a phase change of a coolant fluid, please manage to gauge steam phase quality. Just to silence critics and avoid lenghty (and pointless) discussions in the aftermath.

    With all my best wishes,
    Carlo

  617. Andrea Rossi

    Carlo Marcena:
    Our target are the potential clients, not the rock and troll musicians.
    It is time for LENR to exit the frogs pond and look at the business ocean, where commercial results are the meter of facts. The aftermath that counts for us are the contracts to sell heat, not the chatters of a bunch of imbeciles with a paid for agenda.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  618. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your current stated approach is to generate heat for sale with the requirement that control be maintained by your company using the Internet. Eventually, as applications shift to mobile (aviation, marine and automotive) where Internet connectivity may be non-existent or intermittent, your control scheme will have to change.

  619. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Probably.

    the mind and the imagination gallop forward over the years, and I imagined the future domestic E-Cats in our houses.

    Dear Andrea,

    Please review this paper.

    https://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9506023

    Basically, it provides an explanation for the light produced by sonoluminescence. According to this theory, the abrupt collapse of the bubble induces vacuum polarization of electron positron pairs that then emits radiation. I think that the sudden in surges and collisions in the SK could be extracting energy from the vacuum in this manner.

    Hi all, I tried to organize a micro-social-meeting in Italy, near Milan, between supporters (but eventually open to the deniers) to enjoy together the E-cat presentation by Andrea and his collaborators, especially with the aim of having the presence of some expert (and also not to stay in solitude. ..) but I found only a general indifference. I obviously also tried with some traditional media and a researcher. Now I will try with a last contact I have at an important company of distribution of thermal energy near the metropolitan area, but with little hope. If there is anyone, especially in connection with research institutions, companies, schools, etc. who thinks about organizing something, please let us know in time with a message! Thank you!

  638. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    I thank you very much for your enthusiasm, but, please, do not insist with persons that are not interested. Before a mass interest is achieved we need a mass of plants in operation.

    Hi Andrea,

    I’m Looking forward to the upcoming presentation.

    A few weeks ago I mentioned the possibility of the resurgence of helium airships, and how your tech would dovetail with that nicely.

    I guess you are pretty busy at the moment, but if you want a diversion for 15 mins, head on over to https://www.hybridairvehicles.com where they are just bringing very large airships to market. I understand they are using large V8 auto engines. If you can enter this market in its infancy (say over the next 5 years), you will be well placed for transitioning the other existing combustion engine based markets (20 years).

  660. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    Here is another awesome paper that describes the phenomena that is taking place in the QX/SK.

    In short, it explains how the fireball through the double layer produces ion acoustic oscillations that distribute energy and matter throughout the plasma.

    http://epsppd.epfl.ch/Buda/pdf/p3_058.pdf

    My guess is that you have optimized the gap between electrodes (made it larger), optimized the pressure in the reactor (near atmospheric), optimized the gaseous atmosphere (using a noble gas mixture of mostly argon and perhaps a percentage of neon), and optimized the fuel (the lithium and deuterium) to produce nuclear reactions that provide heat that the fireball can convert into electrical current which power the oscillations that transport ions. These ion acoustic oscillations then go on to produce additional excess heat by polarizing the active vacuum and extracting electron positron pairs. In addition, through controlling the impulses applied after the initial higher voltage/current impulse OR using permanent magnets to produce a “magnetic mirror effect” you are able to keep the fireball off the surface of the electrodes to reduce the erosion rate.

    Hello Andrea,

    Please read the following article entitled, “Macroscopic Vacuum Polarization.”

    https://books.google.com/books?id=hrS_5o60YAMC&pg=PA58&lpg=PA58&dq=%22Quantum+electrodynamics+shows+that+the+basis+of+all+electrical+phenomena+is+the+vacuum%22&source=bl&ots=IR8WU0hYSx&sig=2INGhN7LbXgBAGk7mHYzh_TLS1Q&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiH1_eeie7fAhVKneAKHbA7D8sQ6AEwAHoECAAQAQ#v=onepage&q=%22Quantum%20electrodynamics%20shows%20that%20the%20basis%20of%20all%20electrical%20phenomena%20is%20the%20vacuum%22&f=false

    The author, Moray B. King, explains how ion acoustic oscillations in a plasma can polarize the positron-electron pairs already present in the vacuum and release energy. These oscillations are the exact same type you are producing in the QX and SK if you have created a “fireball” with a double layer that is continually exchanging matter and energy with the general plasma.

    Alternatively, are you just going to wait for customers convinced in the economic advantage of using your E-Cat plants, to come to you?

    I wish you success in all your endeavors!

    Andrea,

    Please read the series of articles called, “Dirac’s Equation and the Sea of Negative Energy” by Don Hotson (who is now deceased). The documents can be found in a simple google search. He describes how it is incorrect that only virtual particles exist in the vacuum. Instead, completely REAL electron-positron pairs exist in the vacuum and these electron-positron pairs are what actually compose photons. The simple truth is that if something is REAL then it must exist: there’s nothing virtual. The electron-positron pairs in the negative sea are every bit as real as they are when they emerge into our “positive” sea of energy, except that they are in a condition which hinders our ability to observe them.

  667. Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    Thank you for sending the point of view of Don Hotson.
    Warm Regards,

    Hi dott. Rossi, will you officially start selling the heat from the 31st of January?
    Is it possible to know the cost and the economic convenience of buying your heat?
    how much is a thermal Kwh?

  669. Andrea Rossi

    De Meo Michelangelo:
    We will talk of these issues during the presentation: http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  670. Valentine Senti

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think that vacuum can facilitate LENR?

  671. Andrea Rossi

    Valentine Senti:
    Vacuum is not an absolute concept: as a matter of fact, vacuum is full of fields of virtual particles that can act as real in certain situations. As a consequence of this fact, it is impossible to give an absolute answer.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  672. Muhammad Kathrada

    About the Ecat Home:
    1-is its output only thermal energy?
    2- if yes, can this thermal energy be converted into electricity?
    3- if yes, at what efficiency?
    Thank you
    Muhammad Kathrada

  673. Andrea Rossi

    Muhammad Kathrada:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- with the Carnot cycle the efficiency can reach the 35%, less with other cycles or methods technologically available as of today.
    Attention, though: the Ecat Home does not exist yet, because we do not have yet the safety certification. Only the industrial Ecat is available.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  674. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    1. Is my assumption right that the heat, generated by the control system, is somehow added to the heat production side of the Ecat?
    2. If this is true, will you be able to do that also if a customer wants closed loop high level heat (say 500 deg. C minimum input temp.; 1000 deg.C. Maximum output temp.)?
    3. What instrument(s) will you use to determine the produced quantity of heat during the test @1-31?
    4. Have you already found a customer willing to openly publish the performance of the E-Cat SK during the first year?
    Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

  675. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- the heat dissipated by the control system can be recovered independently for independent use, or integrated with the heat generation of the Ecat, for example pre-heating the the secondary flow, with an energy recovery with a COP close to 1.
    2- see point 1
    3- this will be explained during the demonstration
    4- not yet, but in time this is expected to be possible
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    We have three possible scenarios after January 31st 2019 presentation http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    1- the presentation will confirm success, but the society as a whole will continue to ignore it
    2- there will be a strong hostile and disparaging activity against Andrea Rossi: oil, coal, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, hot fusion are going to continue to get enormous funds and they can easily kill this technology and the man behind it
    3- a large majority of educated world decides to help the development of this technology to fight against the degradation of our environment.
    My question is: which is the best scenario for the wellness of mankind?
    Best Regards,
    Tobbe

    Tobbe:
    Thank you for your sustain: I hope all the energy source will be integrated in the common interest.
    Warm Regards,

  679. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    A complete, uncensored measurement of the electrical input power is required, which method will you use :
    – power measured at the input of the control system (true rms Watt Meter)
    – power measured at the reactor inlet (simultaneous acquisition of U and I)
    – during this presentation, will there be an oscilloscope, showing both the input voltage and the input current of the reactor?
    – since your reactor is in operation, the customer probably made his own measurements: will he make a communication about these measurements, and therefore the real gain on the electricity bill for the thermal energy produced ?

    I will follow with interest the presentation of the new reactor, January 31, hoping that my questions will be retained. I think there will be many from all those who follow the development of the “E-cat”.
    Sincere wishes for your project, humanity urgently needs low-carbon energy sources (By the way, did you evaluate the carbon footprint of the reacteur, manufacturing/while running ?

    Michel

  680. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    The measurements will be shown during the presentation.
    The carbon dioxide produced by the Ecat during its operation is zero.
    The amount of carbon dioxide produced to manufacture an Ecat ( the so called “grey energy” ) is the same that a 20 kW Ecat saves in a couple of days of operation, vs a supposed life of 20 years.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  681. W

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Will the plants that you will install in the factories of your customers consume electricity from the outlet of the customers or from the grid with your own accounts?
    If from the client’s plug, how will be calculated the bill?
    W

  682. Andrea Rossi

    W:
    We will draw the electricity needed from the Ecats from the outlet of the Clients, since we cannot make contracts with the providers to sell us electricity in a place that is not ours or rented by us.
    Our billing system will be very simple and clear: we and the Customer will put a wattmeter along the line that supplies electric energy to the control system, to read the Wh per month consumed by the whole Ecat System ( control panels plus Ecats ), so that we will have the worth of the electricity consumed by the Ecats; the bill will compute the price of the thermal Wh generated by the Ecats and the price of the electric Wh consumed by the same Ecats: the Customer will obviously pay the difference between the price of the thermal energy generated by the Ecats and the price of the electric energy consumed from the same Ecats.
    Note: we will bill also the thermal energy recovered from the cooling system of the control panel: such energy is recovered with a COP close to 1.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  683. Mike Casbon

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I appreciate the strategy you defend your IP with.
    I also hope a sequel book after “An impossible invention” will be published with the description of the incremental improvements until the realization of the Ecat SK.
    I think such a book will inspire future generations of technicians and scientists.

    Dear Andrea,

    Here is a link to an article about the “Super Tube” concept. The author combines a number of different principles from various inventors to come up with what he believes would be an optimum design for a device that taps into the vacuum by producing fast ion surges in the “negative resistance” regime. He incorporates ideas such as a hollow cathode (the Russian psudospark discharge concept), radioactive electrodes (for pre-ionization of the gas to allow a lower starting voltage and transition to the negative resistance phase), and even specific circuits to capture the back spikes and convert them into electricity. In other papers he documents how the same concept of extracting positron-electron pairs has been theorized to take place in cavitation of argon filled bubbles in a liquid during ultrasound which produces a blue light.

    Eric Ashworth,

    I do not believe in the vacuum truly being empty. I subscribe to the Dirac Sea concept in which space devoid of what we consider ordinary matter to be full of electron positron pairs (some scientists simply refer to them as photon pairs). This sea of electron positron pairs constitutes a kind of superfluid “aether” which contains tremendous potential energy.

    I’m also fascinated by the concept of vacuum polarization in which electron-positron pairs can be made to emerge from the aether.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_polarization

    I tend to think that it’s plausible that in the SK could be extracting electron positron pairs from the Dirac Sea (or aether) as a source of energy. For example, rapid accelerations of charged particles can create powerful electric fields that can polarize electron-positron pairs, pull them out of the aether, and make them appear as ordinary particles. Since it’s accepted scientific fact that the double layer of a plasmoid such as those produced in a pulsed direct current discharge can suddenly accelerate ions, I’m thinking that during this process positron-electron pairs could appear. The positrons would annihilate with electrons in the plasma producing a source of energy.

    If some quantity of electron positron pairs are being extracted from the vacuum, then a certain percentage of the power output of an SK would be from nuclear reactions occurring between the fuel placed inside and another percentage would be from the electron positron pairs extracted from the aether.

    Here is a totally made up and hypothetical example.

    Percentage of the energy output resulting from fusion reactions between H, D, Li, Al, Ni: 50%

    Percentage of energy out resulting from the extraction and annihilation of electron positron pairs from the Dirac Sea: 50%

    I would like to ask you for your wild guess as to the proper percentage, if any energy is coming from the vacuum at all.

    If I haven’t made myself clear I apologize.

  700. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Supposing you get a new customer that have an existing own system of heating in his facility. Installing the new system with E-Cat will requires costs.
    Question: who pays for these costs:
    1. Leonardo
    2. The customer
    3. Both, in fractions depending on the contract.

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    As it is important writing correctly the name of things and symbols (ie we must write kW and not KW or Kw), I think that we should yet determine the right way to write the name of your invention:

    1 – E-Cat
    2 – E-cat
    3 – ECat
    4 – Ecat

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

  709. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In the past you have said the ‘temperature’ of the core of the E-Cat reaches 1 eV (or about 11,600 deg K).

    1) Is this an average temperature during normal operation, self-sustained operation or a maximum temperature that should not be exceeded?

    2) What is the initial temperature following normal startup (for example, ten minutes after you push the START button) ?

    3) Does core temperature reach 1 eV if the E-Cat produces only 10% of rated power, or is this temperature reached at 90-110% (??) of rated power?

    Happy and Healthy New Year,

    Joseph Fine

  710. Eric Ashworth

    @TheFutureIsNow ,
    Although the question was not directed towards myself but I am fascinated by LENRs and your question is with regards an interesting topic. Energy from the vacuum. Vacuum refers to total emptiness, which I do not agree with, with regards sub atomic physics. As the sub atomic runs out to the absolute plank length with regards the Astro and not the terrestrial, which does not do so, the enclosures within on the Astro become identity systems due to like repels like i.e. event horizons maintain stability/identity within the overriding Astro systems, which thereby provides energy from the the vacuum being Astro, LENRs are not Astro physical events but are within the confines of the terrestrial physical and therefore LE Nuclear reactions are lower reactions being more negative i.e. long wave but nevertheless very energy efficient with regards the length of their wave and the subsequent velocity and interactions of the wave. LENRs are soft sub atomic energy reactions. Regards Eric Ashworth
    P.S. I do appreciate being corrected because this subject at present is a learning curve.

  711. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    If you had to make a guess, what percentage of the power produced by the SK is from LENR and what percentage is extracted from the vacuum?

    BIG DISCLAIMER: If Andrea Rossi answers this question I am asking him for a guess and his answer should not be taken as proven fact.

    If the QX does extract power from the vacuum, it is even a more significant discovery because it proves the vacuum can be harnessed for the benefit of humanity.

  717. Dan C.

    @ Brian and Leanne Balding

    Recall when Video Cassette Recorders came to market, there was the Betamax vs VHS format wars. VHS won and Betamax lost everything.

    Elon Musk opened his battery charging technology patents to those(including Big Auto) who wish to copy it without legal consequence. Not his Tesla car.

    Why would Elon Musk do this? It was “Self Interest” of course. Having no standard for charging stations and Big Auto likely to set that standard eventually(Tesla being the small fish), Musk was making a preemptive strike to influence that standard.

    In the details. One must copy the charging technology precisely with no deviation what so ever to avoid legal consequences. Thus by setting a standard, He avoids becoming the Betamax of charging technology.

    In addition, Tesla has been building charging stations for their cars around the country. It’s an expensive tho necessary process. Allowing others to copy his technology spreads that cost and increases the number of charging locations at a faster pace. Note Elon Musk is in the EV business, not charging stations. These will eventually be provided by 3rd parties, the current gas station/convenience stores.

    Bear in mind, If Big Auto sets the standard different from Tesla’s, Tesla could be crushed. No one wants a car that can only be charged at home. And bear in mind, Big Auto is a competitive market. Crushing competitors is just business. Tho this sounds harsh(and IS), without these competitive markets, likely we wouldn’t be on the internet. Your $400 laptop would be near $5000. There would be no reason to find cheaper ways to produce product or cut costs.

    Andrea offers heat at a 20% discount. When competitors come along, he will need to find ways to become even cheaper to survive in business. Rossi is very aware of this.

    Wishing you and Andrea and his team team all the best,

    Hot regards,

    Dan C.

  720. Yuri

    In the list you put in the answer to Eike we must consider another point: the customer must accept that the control is made from your company in remote mode.
    How do you concile this if in case of emergency not dependent from the Ecat, the same Ecat has to be stopped immediately?

  721. Andrea Rossi

    Yuri:
    You are right, the Customer must accept the remote control made from us. Every Ecat is supplied by a red mushroom emergency botton by which it can be stopped onsite, independently from the reason. The operator that will stop the Ecat will send us immediately a warning and will ask us when to restart it.

  733. Andrea Rossi

    Eike:
    1- must be an industrial concern or a centralized heat distribution facility
    2- must give evidence that really already consumes the thermal energy he claims to need
    3- must give financial references to guarantee to be able to pay the bills
    4- must be in a geographic area where we are organized to serve
    5- must be a well consolidated activity
    6- must have all the necessary authorizations, certifications and permits necessary to make their activity
    7- must have a back up in case of malfunction of the Ecat
    This is the preliminar screening, after which specific situations must be analyzed.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    When you develop an eCat to turbine engine, why not couple it into an automobile and do a non-stop for refueling trip from the East Coast to the West Coast – a Cannonball run, but at normal highway speeds. Include GPS real-time tracking and notify the news media. A proof of the long term supply of power. Alternatively, an eCat to electrical generation with an electric car. Have a documentary film made of the trip.

    No need FAA approval for demonstrating an aircraft flight. But common people would believe the technology by making a cross-country trip without refueling. Solar can’t provide enough energy for highway speeds, or at night.

    All that having been said, electric cars are anyway an important resource IF their columns are connected with solar plants, eolic plants or other sources not dependent on fossil fuels. It is just important to separate the myth from the reality.

    Dear Andrea,
    1- will it be possible for industries to have an E-Cat and buy the heat from it now or soon after the demonstration?
    2- how much heat do they have to buy to be allowed to have an E-Cat?
    3- Will you say yes to most costumers?
    4- do you expect many requests?
    Thank you for this blog and all the honest answers.

  749. Andrea Rossi

    Lars:
    1- yes
    2- depends on the specific situations
    3- we will say yes to all the Customers that will be fit for the Ecat
    4- yes

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding your question about electric cars. Even if all energy is produced with fossil fuels at 35% efficiency, electric cars reduce pollution because of efficiency:
    1) Energy recover during braking
    2) Maximum efficiency at every speed and regime (an hybryd Porsche of 700HP does 30Km/lt just recharghing the batteries with the 500HP low efficiency motor)
    3) Engine efficiency is at most 20% and only at half the maximum power. At low speed (50km/h) you need 3Kw of power. At this power all engines have awful efficiency (probabily less than 5%) and moreover all energy is lost when you brake
    4) No gear losses

    At low speeds (25-30km/h, a common speed in traffic) an electric car can do 1Km with 85wh of power. The energy of 7g of gasoline (45MJ/kg the energy of gasoline, 85Wh=85*3600J=0.306MJ)… This because the energy required at low speed is cubically less than high speeds and engines at low power have awful efficiency, as i said, plus the losses in the gears, water and oil pumping, air inlet and exhaust gas outlets etc… Electric car instead have high efficiency also at low speeds.

    To summarize: even not considering regenerative braking, an electric car can extract about 35%(conversion)*80%(transport)*80%(recharge)*80%(discharge+DC/AC conversion+electric motor+mechanical losses) of the energy. A petrol car at most 20% (at half the power: a 40kw car must go at 100km/h to have maximum efficiency, but for the cubic formula of the energy versus speed, it’s better to go slow, but at slow speed the efficiency is not 20%!), plus gear losses, plus other losses. Most of the time the efficiency is way under 5%…

    Regards,
    Marco.

  751. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    Sorry, you missed the point: the loss of efficiency is not just from the car, it is mainly from the power station that feeds the car. Therefore the pollution that is not made by the car is made on its behalf from the power station that burns fossil fuel to feed the car. The problem has not been resolved, has just been displaced from one site to the other.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    If I have understood well:
    On January 31st at 9 AM New York Time if I will go to
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    I will find a link to click upon and I will be in the presentation, correct?

  753. Andrea Rossi

    Karen:
    Yes, exactly.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  754. Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks for paraphrasing parts of my email and replying with valid points of course. I was mainly not talking about CO2 pollution. CO2 in itself is not a pollutant, especially if it comes from a burnt tree that regrows in a few years. It’s the particle pollution released from car exhausts that is very unhealthy.

    I encourage your readers to do the following experiment for themselves: Leave a clean tray at a busy car intersection when there is no wind. After a few hours you’ll notice a layer of pollution on the tray. This all ends up in people’s lungs. There is no such thing coming out from electric cars.

    Best regards.
    Patrick

  755. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Yes. Do the same experiment where are the power stations from which electric cars get their soup.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    I made a synthesis of your email to save time transferring it here, but I think I conserved genuinely its content. When a comment is sent by email instead of here as a comment, it takes time to me to transfer it, therefore when it is long I make a synopsis.

  756. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “Is somebody out there that can explain to me why electric cars save pollution, since to charge a battery we have to plug it in an outlet that gets electricity mainly from oil, gas and coal fueled plants with efficiencies that are never over 35% ?”

    Like everything else, there are exceptions.

    1. Imagine a home with a large solar collection farm. My sister-in-law in California has such a farm on her property. An electric car, and the household, can be powered during the day provided she doe not drive too far each day. She is retired and need only drive her car at night.

    2. You live near a conventional nuclear power plant or a hydroelectric dam. Its power goes to your immediate community. An electric car’s source of power would be non-polluting.

    3. An eCat local area electric power generation system, powering the businesses and home during the day and charging the electric vehicles at night, assuming eCat technology works AND is widely accepted/implemented. Time will tell.

    As you have pointed out, an integrated power solution is the best approach. Reducing carbon emissions is a societal goal. Solar, wind, hydro, nuclear, and possibly eCat technolgies can find their place in such an integrated system. Economics and public policy will dictate the mix of that integrated system.

  757. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    Good points, I agree on the fact that there are niches in which electric cars make sense. But we are talking of niches. I also agree on the point that all the energy sources must be integrated.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  758. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    In regards to your post about electric car patents, I’d like to say there is a huge difference between that sort of technology and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions.

    1) Electric cars have existed for well over a hundred years. If my history is correct, the first cars for a short period of time were all electric before the internal combustion engine began to dominate.

    2) All of the concepts of electric cars are absolutely established scientific reality – electric motors, batteries, and even on board computers. LENR, on the other hand, is considered absolute pseudo-science by mainstream scientists. To this day if you go to a random university and bring up the topic of LENR with a physics professor I’d wager that 95% of them claim it to be impossible, 4% of them claim it to be unproven, and 1% to be open minded if you promise everything they say will be off the record.

    3) There’s not a single technology in a Tesla Roadster or any other electric car on the market today that has any potential to dramatically change the world. They are a conglomeration of existing ordinary technologies and NOTHING MORE. They aren’t going to solve the energy crisis, help the environment to any significant degree, or provide any breakthrough in transportation (they don’t fly through the sky). However, LENR is a truly BREAKTHROUGH technology that holds the potential to change all aspects of human civilization. An unlimited source of dirt cheap and completely pollution free technology that’s both COMPACT and PORTABLE will have FAR reaching impacts. Moreover, even if you ignore the practical implications and potential of LENR, the scientific discoveries that explain how the reactions can take place could continue spawn a revolution in understanding of how our universe works.

    To be blunt, the SK is without exaggeration ten thousand times as important of a product than any electric car, any new lithographic process for producing computer chips, or even any pharmaceutical being developed. This puts it into a category that in my opinion gives you a moral obligation to ensure that the knowledge and know how is shared with the world. I’m in no way whatsoever opposed to you making money if the SK is what you have claimed. For goodness sakes, we live in a world where untalented, vulgar pop stars can do sickening things and end up making millions of dollars by profiting on the media attention. If they and others can make money for producing NOTHING, you deserve to make a FORTUNE (even more) for inventing the SK which could do so much good for the world. But I think regardless how it impacts the potential for profit, positively or negatively, the fact this technology is real MUST be proven beyond any doubt to the world and the basic phenomena behind it’s operation revealed.

    Holding back knowledge that could prove the reality of LENR is like being the first caveman to master fire yet instead of explaining the process to others, that caveman decides to have all his neighbors bring their meat to his cave where he will cook it in secret. If there were already a dozen ways to make fire keeping yet a new method confidential wouldn’t be an issue, but when all cavemen are ignorant that fire exists it’s an issue that must be resolved.

  760. @ Brian and Leanne Balding
    January 9, 2019 at 3:19 PM

    This is not the first time it has been suggested on this blog that the inventor who has spent many, many years conducting experiments to figure out how to make LENR a reality, should – now he has already accomplished all the most difficult work – donate his IP for free to everyone.

    I may be mistaken, but the impression I have had when this was previously suggested is that those making this suggestion – carefully worded, of course, not to give the game away – just cannot wait to get their hands on the rights in the expectation that they may be able to find a way to make a ton of money out of it themselves while, if that is the way it works out, leaving the inventor with nothing.

    Mr Rossi has been working very long hours, for many many years (I am under the impression he initiated this project nearly 30 years ago) to try to find a way to create, and finally now to perfect, an invention which will, in due course: A) appreciably reduce energy costs for everyone across the globe; B) help diminish substantially carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere; and C) raise productivity and living standards worldwide in a magnitude that may be unprecedented.

    In your opinion, Brian and Leanne Balding, is the above list of benefits inadequate for Mr. Rossi to bestow upon the world? Do you seriously think it is appropriate that he give away rights to his invention to those who have contributed NOTHING to its creation? Do you expect me to believe that you would do this had you invented the Ecat?

    I believe it is appropriate that those choosing to devote a substantial investment of their own personal ingenuity, time, effort and financial resources to provide the rest of us with benefits should, when successful, be rewarded. And rewarded very approximately in proportion to the size of their contribution. That is why the countries of western nations created patent protection. There are other political systems that ‘work’ on different principles but, in every case, all they have ever produced is poverty for all, other than for a few within their political leaderships:

    For example, not long ago the monthly salary of fully qualified and practising medical doctors in Cuba was $30. (Yes, MONTHLY.) A minority of them recently enjoyed a pay raise to a positively whopping $67 a month. Please read about it here:

    http://www.medicaldaily.com/cuban-doctors-get-salary-raises-67-month-after-government-cuts-100k-redundant-jobs-272310

    Or take the Ukraine – a nation with the potential to be massively productive in agriculture – where, after nearly a century under an alternate system, GDP per capita is approximately $2000, compared with a range generally between $50,000 and $80,000 among the nations of western Europe, the inhabitants of which, incidentally, are not materially different genetically (so that can not be used as an excuse): goo.gl/bgba7

    The message is clear: where there are no powerful incentives for innovation, resource conservation and impressing the hell out of customers, there will be no innovation, nor any inclination to pay attention either to customers or to the conservation of resources. The results are entirely predictable.

    I am fortunate to live where serious incentives encourage residents to exert effort in pursuit of reward, and where, in consequence, nearly everyone – not just doctors, inventors or CEOs – earns orders of magnitude more than medical doctors in Cuba: The incomes of coffee shop workers here are more than thirty times greater than those of the average Cuban physician.

    So, when the time comes, I will be more than happy to pay Mr. Rossi the royalty on my domestic E-cat. And I very much hope he will profit very substantially from his patent protection. He has, after all, devoted enormous effort and ingenuity to this task over a period of decades, outperforming, essentially on his own, legions of government-sponsored scientists, while enduring ridicule or, at best, incredulity, from perhaps a majority in the science professions, while at the same time incurring appreciable financial risk on a project which must, at the outset, have seemed to have only a tiny likelihood of success.

    Sincerely,

    Rodney Nicholson.

    Dear Andrea,
    Electric cars reduce pollution because the average power station is better equipped to filter and dispose of pollutants than the car engines; besides, electric cars reduce noise pollution.
    In future, electric cars will be fueled by alternative energy sources, among which the Ecat: I am very looking forward the presentation on http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Wishing you all the best,
    Patrick Ellul

  762. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    First and foremost, thank you for your continuous attention to the work of our Team.
    You say the average power stations are better provided of pollution control system; since I worked for many years in that sector, allow me to correct you, because:
    1- the power stations fueled by fossil fuels ( all of them, no exception) have not systems to reduce the percentage of carbon dioxide, therefore the main source of the so called “global warming” is not affected by their anti-pollution systems…yeah, I know, they talk of CO2 capture, but it’s not working, yet.
    2- it is much more easy to control the emissions of a car engine, because of the small amount of cfm, with the catalytic apparatuses, than the emissions of the power stations, because with the increase of the flow rate the problems increase exponentially ( I was an expert of electrostatic precipitators and made patents on this field in the seventies)
    3- when we read that enormous amounts of MW have been installed of eolic and solar plants, we always forget that a kW of power does not correspond to 1 kWh/h of energy when we talk of solar and wind, because the rate of service is, at the best, the 10% , because the sun is not always there enough to fulfill the power of the plant , as well as the wind. Be sure that the 90% or more of the electric energy pumped in an electric car comes from fossil fuels as an average in the world, the rest being mainly hydro and nuclear. The guys that write in the advertising ” We use only clean energy” are just kidding the dummies: they buy energy from plants fueled mainly by coal, oil, gas, then paint it green with a layer of a marginal amount of energy made with windmills and solar panels. This is the truth.
    But we live of myths, much easier than serious analysis and studies: ” electric cars do not pollute “, ” we must stop all the fossil fuel stuff and go only solar “, ” LENR is impossible ” ( lucky me that didn’t know ), like to say ” red sky in the evening, good weather tomorrow “. Yeah!

    You have taken as a model the Big Pharma to explain why the intellectual property cannot be given up, to avoid to lose the investments. Now, look at Elon Musk: he donated his Tesla patents to accelerate the diffusion of electric cars. This is the right model to follow, not the greed of Big Pharma.
    Best Regards,
    Brian and Leanne Balding

  766. Andrea Rossi

    Brian and Leanne Balding:
    Quite superficial analysis.
    Mr Elon Musk has first collected billions from investors and eventually, when the production of Tesla turned up to be much less than expected and invested for, made the move to say that he will not sue companies that will copy Tesla’s patents. This, obviously, is exactly the contrary of our situation. By the way, because made curious from your comment, I asked to an acquaintance of mine, that is the CEO of a company involved in the electric cars manufacturing, which company or companies manufacturing electric cars is/are using the patents of Tesla: he said “none”.
    I asked also to him: ” Why don’t you give for free to your competitors your patents, so you will be the good guy for the cause ?” When he finished to laugh, he answered: ” Had I done this, our shareholders would have made a class A action asking to be refunded by the billions “.
    This said, Elon Musk has all my respect and esteem for his courage and ingenuity and I wish him and Tesla a successful 2019.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Is somebody out there that can explain to me why electric cars save pollution, since to charge a battery we have to plug it in an outlet that gets electricity mainly from oil, gas and coal fueled plants with efficiencies that are never over 35% ? Mah!

  769. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    Through my online research I’ve discovered that the existence of a fire ball (plasma ball) with a double layer on the surface (protons in the enterior and electrons on the outside) is critical for the negative resistance phenomena to take place. The plasma ball acts almost as a capacitor or a source of energy to sustain the negative resistance. During this same time period, the plasma ball sustains itself by absorbing radiant energy (mostly heat) from the general plasma environment and begins to produce a self-generating oscillation. This oscillation is basically the conversion of heat into electrical current by the plasma ball.

    Due to the production of anomalous energy (in various forms) allegedly generated by a number of different devices producing plasma balls, it is logical to assume that in addition to zero point energy extraction LENR reactions are taking place near the double layers where positive ions and electrons can interact. If this is the case, this amazing self organizing plasma structure in the QX would take the heat generated, convert it to electrical current, and project this electricity through the discharge. A portion of this electrical current (perhaps a significant amount) is converted in the general plasma into heat and light! What remains can be collected as electricity.

    No steam boilers, no thermo-electric panels, no photothermalvotaic devices with tiny gaps: the plasma ball ON IT’S OWN converts the heat generated by LENR into electricity. The light and heat are primarily massive losses, but future versions of the QX could be designed to minimize the production of heat/light and boost direct electrical output.

    So fundamentally to maximize the energy produced by the plasma ball (if LENR produces a significant portion of the heat) the proper fuel mixture should be utilized. The first step seems to be choosing one or more noble gases. Argon is obvious the FIRST choice. However, additions of other gases like neon could also optimize the formation of the plasmoid.

    Next, once the noble gases have been selected, we need to look at the fuels that would be undergoing nuclear reactions. The two most obvious that come to mind are hydrogen (protium with no neutrons) and deuterium (with a neutron). My understanding is that deuterium has a higher cross section for nuclear reactions than hydrogen. Moreover, in spinning up the plasmoid, adding some quantity of deuterium would allow for another layer of positive ions to form with a different mass.

    Finally, we need to think about what the hydrogen and deuterium would interact with, in addition to possibly themselves. My guess is that lithium is an ideal fuel for a number of reasons. Basically, in a large number of experiments by different parties, it seems to be susceptible to nuclear reactions with hydrogen/deuterium at very low energies (a few hundred eV) far below what is predicted by traditional nuclear physics (hundreds of KeV minimum). Another fuel that should not be totally ignored are the NANO-PARTICLES produced via sputtering from the electrodes. These metal particles of nickel, manganese, or potentially even other metals such as platinum could also undergo nuclear reactions, although at a lower rate than lithium.

    Everything else is basically about helping sustain resonance (design of the power supply so it acts like a tank circuit), possibly applying low powered frequencies to the plasma ball after the initial pulse to help sustain it, and to keeping the plasmoid free floating and away from the electrode surfaces which would produce massive erosion.

    Any thoughts or comments?

    What must be the minimum conditions for having a plant with Ecat?
    Obviously excluding a single domestic service, would it be possible, for example, for non-industrial applications such as large condominiums or for a group of school buildings and so on?
    In these examples there is always a person responsible for common plants such as heating, water, conditioning, etc.

    Sincerely,

    Hello Andrea,

    I found the following paper very interesting. It details how the position of a “fireball” of plasma can be manipulated to be kept off the surface of an electrode with either a “magnetic mirror” or a “magnetic cusp” configuration.”

    http://www.physics.ucla.edu/plasma-exp/references/publications/PSSTechnol/PSST-21-2012.pdf

    If you utilize permanent or electromagnets to keep the “fireball” in the SK off the electrode, I hope you will discuss the details in the upcoming presentation.

    Hello Andrea,

    I think you have already tremendously optimized the QX/SK, and I’m sure there are optimizations we cannot even guess. However, looking back at the work of Winston Bostic on Plasmoids/Spheromaks, the work of Chernetsky on the Self Generating Discharge Tube (there were several variations), and the work of Paulo and Alexandra Correa on the Pulsed Abnormal Glow Discharge device, I have a few suggestions that you may or may not have already tested.

    1) Winston Bostic did extensive testing on plasmoids and specifically spheromaks – torodial vortexes of plasma that were being experimented with to produce nuclear fusion. These self sustaining spheromaks would become more stable, form easier, and produce up to ten times the x-rays when at least five percent of argon was added to the plasma. The key here is that the positive ions of the argon organize into layers within the inner body of the torus while the electrons remain on the exterior. By utilizing noble gases and other gases of various atomic weights, you can create a “whip” like effect which can more easily “spin up” the plasmoid. Even utilizing a certain percentage of deuterium which would be of a higher atomic weight than ordinary hydrogen due to the extra neutron could be useful.

    2) The correct application of external magnetic fields can help a spheromak or plasmoid form. Obviously, they can be produced at sharp tips or points on a cathode from the magnetic field they self generate. I’m guessing the only practical place to place external magnets (permanent or electromagnets) on the QX/SK would be axially directly behind the nickel electrodes.

    3) These types of structures when they self oscillate produce longitudinal electromagnetic waves which cannot effectively be received by ordinarily positioned antennas. Either a spherical antenna must be positioned nearby OR a straight length of conductive antenna needs to be positioned so that the longitudinal waves can travel down the entire length. If you have not done so already, I urge you to measure for longitudinal waves to determine if they are an additional source of energy you can tap into.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    If all your customers are secret, there are little chance of making Ecat known to the world in short time.
    If instead there were some customers (even small, even few, 3 or 4) who agreed to make themselves known and share with the world their experiences with Ecat, there would soon be a great and positive notoriety in the world. An explosion!
    Wouldn’t you like it?.

    In Italy we say, as you know “La pubblicità è l’anima del commercio” and also for the Ecat could be used that motto

    You could encourage these customers by giving them a discount higher than 20% (30%, 40% ??) for a limited period of time (6 months, one year?).
    This is a suggestion you’ve already received on JoNP and it seems you have liked it.
    In this case you could present this proposal during the next presentation.

    Ecat is a so GREAT invention that we all desire its diffusion in a time as short as possible.

    Obviously in the reality there could be circumstances, facts and things that you know (and we don’t), so the previous proposal couldn’t be acceptable in that way.
    Anyway we are sure that you will try to manage all things in the best way for you and for Ecat.

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

    Dear Andrea,

    I asked the question “For the Ecat SK 20 kW module, does it contain a single plasma zone or multiple plasma zones?”

    You answered “Multiple and complex”.

    As there was some discussion around the same time regarding balls of plasma, I am unsure if you interpreted what I was asking as being about multiple balls of plasma i.e. discrete higher energy plasma zones within an overall plasma zone.

    I would not be surprised that the plasma zone does not have a uniform appearance, as my understanding is that you have an cylindrical zone containing a plasma, and within this plasma you have your active ingredient (the magic sauce) spread along the length of the plasma, and within this active ingredient there will be random induced nuclear activity, the results would be random bursts of localised energy emissions further heating the pre-established plasma with possible miniature very localised magnetic field loops driving plasma movement, so that there would be an appearance (when magnified) all along the length of the plasma zone of plasma bubbling and writhing similar to the surface of the sun, i.e. the plasma zone could be viewed as one not of uniform appearance but one comprising of “multiple and complex” balls of plasma.

    However I was asking about the number of individual plasma zones inside a SK 20 kW module, i.e. like the plasma zone as described in the original Ecat QX, not what was inside an individual plasma zone. (Plasma zones whether they are in individual housings or a multicore housing and in turn within the SK housing).

    If it is possible for you to clarify that if your answer related to multiple balls of plasma within a zone or to multiple plasma zones within a SK 20 kW module.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea, I watched on http://www.ecatskdemo.com the teaser of the presentation scheduled for January 31st at 9 AM ETS.
    So, if I understood correctly: when the countdown of the watch will have reached ZERO on all counts we will have to click on a link that will appear and we will be in, right?
    Kim

  792. Andrea Rossi

    Kim:
    Correct.

    Dear Andrea,

    1) Can you tell us if you believe the plasma balls in the SK are the same phenomena as the “creatures of light” that were witnessed moving inside some of the powder based E-Cats of the past?

    2) It was stated that when these balls of lights appeared the output would increase dramatically and melt downs could take place. Does this mean that these plasma balls are producing energy?

    3) Do you think nano-versions of these plasma balls are present in the lattice of a hydrogen loaded metal when thermal or other stresses release and form cracks which produce charge separation?

    It seems to me these plasma balls on different scales could be a unifying mechanism of at least some forms of LENR.

  794. Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    1- I don’t know what are you referring to
    2- where has it been stated?
    3- this is a confidential field. I cannot answer in positive or in negative
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  795. Andrea Rossi

    Rod Walton:Thank you for the information,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  796. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    1. Regarding details about the plasma being “multiple and complex”: Are you familiar to the work of the Safire project? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IAiMpmGx-M&t=75s
    2. Do you believe that your theory about the LENR process of the E-cat SK matured sufficiently so it can be discussed at the presentation at the end of January?
    I look very much forward to the presentation!
    Kind regards, Gerard

  797. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- no
    2- I don’t think so
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  798. Brian and Leanne Bolding

    We are following your work long time since.
    1-Do you think your technology can help to limit the global warming?
    2-Which is the difference between the demo described on http://www.ecatskdemo.com and the former demos you made?
    3-If yes, why don’t you donate to the world your technology?
    Brian and Leanne Bolding

  799. Andrea Rossi

    Brian and Leanne Bolding:
    1- I think that all the technologies that limit emissions can help. Our tech is among them.
    2- All the former demos had were measurements with a scientific purpose. This is a commercial introduction of a product in the market.
    3- Because nobody would invest seriously in the development of a company without an intellectual property. Ask the same question to the pharmaceutical industries: why do not they donate their patents?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.

    My grandson, Denis, is an excellent student of college heating engineering, (maybe you remember, I wrote to you a couple of years ago, and you congratulated him).
    He told his grandson about the great meaning of your research. He nodded so politely, well, yes, interesting, cool. But I see he did not understand the applied meaning of the formula E = MC2. I do not pedogog.
    Advise where to continue education? In Milan, Bologna, or Sorbone, it’s probably expensive, we are not rich, but we are ready to pay for his desire to learn. Maybe German universities, or the USA? Advise. I’ll be very grateful.

    Yrka:
    All the Universities you cited are excellent, but let me say also, though, that for what concerns Physics and Engineering you have in Russia too Universities ranked among the best of the world: maybe your family can save money choosing one of the best Universities in Russia.
    I wish good luck to your grandson!

  811. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    One day I hope we can have a completely open and frank discussion about these technologies without the need for confidentiality. Please don’t wait so long that you pass away like the former head of Lockheed Skunkworks Ben Rich who had hinted of having extremely important information (claiming that they technologies that rivaled anything in Star Trek which could “take ET home” but it would take an act of God for them to ever be revealed to the public) and had been planning to have a long talk recorded with a friend, but ended up passing away before such a disclosure of information took place.

    I suspect the information you have could be equally as important to the future of humanity.

    BTW, I hope you live for many, many decades to come.

    Mystery, suspense, a great music!

    In the movie “2001 A Space Odyssey”, this music marked the transition between prehistory and the future.

    Just like the advent of the Ecat!

    I watched on http://www.ecatskdemo.com the spot of the presentation of the Ecat SK: enchanting.

  816. Andrea Rossi

    Mary:
    The presentation will be much more enchanting. After 40 years of ostracism LENR become a player in the industrial reality.
    Warm Regards,

  817. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Readers:
    This is the link from where to access the presentation of the Ecat SK.
    Please find inside the necessary information:
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  818. TheFutureIsNow

    Dear Andrea,

    The following document contains a wealth of information, but please specifically read the paper on page 172 entitled

    Comparative studies performed on “fireballs” formed in direct current and high
    frequency discharges
    M.Sanduloviciu, C.Borciat, V.Melnig and C.Gherman
    “Al.l. Cuza” University, Department of Plasma Physics, 6600 Iasi, Romania t
    present address: Universit6 Paris-Sud, L.P.G.P., bat. 212, 91405 Orsay cedex, France

    https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a357742.pdf

    The paper explains how plasma balls can be formed on electrodes during DC discharges and can then become free floating when exposed to high frequency electric currents.

    I really think that this paper is absolutely and directly applicable to the production of plasma balls in the SK.

    Would you please read the article and provide your thoughts on how it applies to what is happening inside the QX/SK?

    My guess is that you are producing a plasmoid with the initial high voltage and high current impulse when you cross the “negative resistance” zone of the abnormal glow discharge. Self generating oscillations at high frequency are produced that you re-inforce with additional signals that allow the plasmoid to exist free floating. This prevents the plasmoid from continually sitting on the electrodes and producing massive erosion.

  819. Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    Sorry, you are floating in a confidential field of information. I cannot answer in positive or in negative.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    will you notify the media of your product?

  829. Artur Klepacz

    This is slightly offtopic and not about Ecat directly, but highly interesting thing that maybe can be interesting to Mr. Rossi: It looks that somebody managed to replicate material somewhat like Starlite (famous lost invention of late M. Ward) from… cornstarch, baking soda, and glue (sic!). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqR4_UoBIzY (youtube user NightHawkInLight). I’m not sure that such a thing is useful, but certainly intriguing in its simplicity.

  830. Dear Dr Rossi
    When do you think we will be able to get more technical information about the reactor. As you know I would like to marry the Ecat to a steam turbine to made electricity and use the waste heat to run commerical Aquaponics farms. Information like pressure and temp of the water as it leaves the Ecat and of course the COP would be very help. Does the efficiency of the system drop as it gets larger e.g. the COP of a 20kw unit compared to a Mw unit.
    I can sign over my first born child HaHa.

    Thank you we are all getting very excited

  831. Andrea Rossi

    Manuel Cilia:
    During the presentation all the general data that can be of interest to our Clients will be given. Obviously, specific situations will need specific solutions. Please do participate to the discussion that will follow the video and the description of the Ecat SK.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  832. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    You stated that during the presentation there will be a person following the discussions with the people watching online. May I ask if will it be possible talking also with you?
    Sincerely
    Italo R.

  833. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Yes, I will answer the questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  834. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    In you answer to TheFutureIsNow, you stated that you have observed balls of plasma in the QX, can you tell us anything more about them?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  835. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    As you know, we will talk of this issue diffusely and we will see very interesting things during the presentation.
    This will be probably one of the more fascinating things we will see, so let’s wait for the presentation of the Ecat SK. We will see the Ecat SK in a show room and we will see a video that has been already made, as you know, in a factory heated by the Ecat SK, where we have placed a camera in a strategic position to look at the plasma. We placed seven cameras in seven crucial points and, honestly, I think it will be worth the while to watch the 2 hours of the direct streaming.
    Thank you for the continue attention and respect that your team, has always dedicated to the work of our team. I recognize that EW is a blog dedicated to the LENR that deals with neutrality and professionality this theme.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  836. Jim

    Can you define better who will attend personally the presentation of January 31st and why others cannot attend?

  837. Andrea Rossi

    Jim:
    The persons in the studio where the presentation will be made are exclusively the ones that will work for the presentation itself and they are:
    1- myself
    2- one my collaborator
    3- the director of the medium we have chosen to organize and broadcast the direct streaming; he will also direct the discussion with the persons that will want to put questions during the direct streaming.
    The team that prepared the presentation is wider, because we made a very beautiful video ( or, at least, it is very beautiful to me ) that will be shown during the presentation, where will be seen an Ecat SK in operation in a factory.
    Soon will be given information about where to go to watch the direct streaming, how to put questions etc.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  838. TheFutureIsNow

    Hello Andrea,

    1) Have you detected any longitudinal ampere forces produced by the QX?

    2) If any longitudinal ampere forces have been detected, can they produce a force that could act upon the entire apparatus to produce movement?

    3) Do you ever observe balls of plasma in the QX?

    4) Are you familiar with the concept of longitudinal electromagnetic waves (vector potential with no magnetic component) and have you attempted to detect any such forces? What were the results?

    5) Are you familiar with Eugene Podkletnov’s impulse beam generator? It utilizes an extremely high voltage and high power impulse to create a plasmoid that travels from a superconducting cathode to a super conducting target anode (all in a hydrogen atmosphere). The result is that a powerful beam of force is produced that can penetrate brick walls a kilometer or further away. I would say that the QX may actually produce similar phenomenon.

  839. Andrea Rossi

    TheFutureIsNow:
    1- no
    2- n.a.
    3- yes
    4- I know what they are, but I am not “familiar” with this issue. I did not deal with them
    5- I am not familiar with this issue either. Interesting, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  840. Prof

    Are you still measuring the electromagnetic fields emitted from the Ecat SK?

  841. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  842. Charlotte

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The fact that you are installing plants to sell heat, not to sell plants is a genial strategy, because:
    a. the credibility of your technology will depend only on the production of energy
    b. your competitors, so far able to realize nothing that works, will remain privy of models to copy. This is making them frenzy
    c. your profits will come exclusively from your production and this is more convincing than any other thing
    d. the pass-parole between your clients and potential clients will expand exponentially your business
    In one word: genial.
    Godspeed,
    Charlotte

  843. Andrea Rossi

    Charlotte:
    Thank you for your attention to our work. Yes, I think our strategy, for the time being, is the best possible, also considering that peobably we will have errors to correct and remaining the owners of the plant shields us, with agreements that foresee the possibility of errors and the fact that our Clients are aware of this fact: since they pay only the energy that is delivered and they have always a back-up makes us safe in the initial period.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  844. Todd Burkett

    What is the cost to manufacture an Ecat SK with a rating of 20 kW complete with everything necessary to operate?
    My guess is around 2000 $.

  845. Andrea Rossi

    Todd Burkett:
    Your guess makes sense.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  846. Dear Andrea,

    Firstly, happy New Year.

    Alexander Parkhomov and other Russian researchers have noticed that LENR experiments sometimes seem to cause strange-looking “tracks” or “scratches” on the surfaces of various test materials (see https://e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Strange-Radiation.pdf , slide 10 and forward). Parkhomov used old DVD disks as test materials, for example, and found that wrapping the DVD inside a metal foil from all sides prevented the occurrence of the strange tracks. To me, this indicates that the agent is some kind of electromagnetic wave; also, from the foil thickness versus skin depth one can derive a lower limit for its frequency. Maybe the emission is modulated, if LENR consists of micro-bursts of some sort, then the effect might even be rapid thermal expansion of the DVD plastic when a strong peak of EM radiation is absorbed by it… this is my speculation. Or maybe a wave peak is intense enough to cause local electric arcing in the vicinity of the plastic of the DVD, which is originally an insulator.

    With the E-cat, you have previously measured that it does not emit ionising radiation and no neutrons outside of the reactor. Have you tried to measure if it emits RF or microwaves that might cause similar remote material effects as Parkhomov had found?

    regards, /pekka

  847. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    As always, Dr Parkhomov is making interesting his work.
    Answer: no, I did not, but it is very interesting.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  848. CC

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you still convinced that the electron capture theory to explain the LENR is wrong?
    Cheers
    CC

  849. Andrea Rossi

    CC:
    Electron capture happens when radioactive atoms with excess of protons decay, if they have not enough energy to decay by a positron emission. I am not aware of LENR processes that use radioactive materials with excess of protons. To obtain “electron capture” starting from atoms that have not an excess of protons could be possible with energies that are unthinkable of in LENR. It’s basic mathematics. Very basic.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  850. Earl

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    During the presentation of the SK will it be possible to see the energy consume of the control panel, besides the consume of the Ecat?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Earl

  851. Andrea Rossi

    Earl:
    Yes and also how thie thermal energy dissipated is recoveredalmost entirely.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  852. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea,
    From your answer i imagine the Ecat SK could fit in the space 8 ft long. I will return on this during the discussion in direct streaming on January 31st.
    Chuck Davis

  853. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    Yes, during the presentation anybody will be allowed to put questions. They who will not make public their names can use pseudonyms.

  868. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    1. Would you consider a price reduction on delivered energy during the first year, if some preliminary customers would be willing to openly share details like used energy and received energy on the Web?
    Those customers would thus promote the energy savings and CO2 reduction using the ECat SK real time on the Web, something I believe many companies and governments would be very interested in, especially in Europe. This will help you to quickly and vastly increase your product sales.
    2. If not, why not?
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard.

  869. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    We can vet this proposal.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  870. Prof

    About your answer to Alain: the virtual particles do not respect that formula.

  871. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Yes, but I think that virtual particles, where the plasma has the due density,can behave like real particles for a time inversally proportional to their energy: if you have to make a wall, is it more efficient to cast the bricks delicately and slowly one upon the other, or try to cast them by a pitcher and a batter of the Red Sox ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  872. Alain

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    which is the equation consequent to the Restricted Relativity of Einstein that binds energy with the momentum of an elementary particle? I ask you this because it should be related to the theory you are working on, about which we had a hint at the Ecat QX presentation of Stockholm in November 2017.

  873. Andrea Rossi

    Alain:
    Yes, the equation is
    E = (m^2c^4 + p^2c^2)^1/2
    wherein:
    E = energy of the particle
    p = momentum of the particle
    m = mass of the particle
    c = speed of the light in vacuum
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  874. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    With regard to your initial Ecat business offering, so far you have stated that the customer will only pay for the energy used, are you then paying for all other costs? In the case of packaged heat supply units (whether in a cargo container or on a skid) supplying liquid or gas process heat via pipework, I would expect that your company would pay for the design, sourcing of material & manufacture of the packaged unit, then the ongoing monitoring & eventual replacement of Ecat modules, however as you will be well aware of, there are other costs that will be incurred.

    Upfront costs for the transportation & installation of packaged heat supply units (can be simple or very complex), i.e. on loading at your manufacturing facility by crane, hired transport to the end users site, an installation team for supervising the offloading by hired crane (can be expensive depending on weight & reach), then the manoeuvring into position by skates and jacks, levelling (required for venting / draining of liquid pipework), the connecting pipework or ductwork supply & installation (& possibly support structures) then hook-up into the end users system, hook-up of an electrical power supply, link to customer control system (DCS) for start-up / shutdown / demand usage (do they call your monitoring team to switch on or off or are they allowed to control this directly?), internet link for your monitoring team, eventual Ecat packaged unit start-up, commissioning to adjust to the end users thermal requirements, end user training on how to operate, then final handover.

    There will be ongoing costs in addition to your continuous monitoring team & installation / service team, you have your product development team and development costs, and you will likely require extra engineering personnel to answer ongoing regulatory / customer technical queries & occasionally be on site with modifications / adjustments & surveys for potential new business.

    With regard to customer usage, it would be good to find customers that have continuous demand for heating, however a lot of industry is cyclic, customers may run plant for a campaign until a target is met then shut down for a period, processes may operate on a cycle of upstream thermal processing use for a period before shutdown then downstream processing then back to upstream again, the customers use may be seasonal with winter usage then summer shutdown. During all of this you would have the ongoing costs of monitoring the plant when it was running producing heat, plus ongoing costs monitoring the plant when it was shutdown to ensure no one was tampering.

    It may be that you have to consider transportation and installation as a cost package that eventually has to be chargeable to a customer, also rental of equipment to cover ongoing monitoring and maintenance / service costs, then on top of this your tariff for heat supply. Also if the customer changes his mind or they are taken over by someone you consider as a competitor, or if the customer goes bust who will pay for the removal from site costs.

    For your commercial launch, will you be providing details of the kind of customer you are seeking i.e. is it large industrial customers who would use a heat supply package or would you accept smaller users of hot air i.e. HVAC in buildings, grain dryers for farmers, greenhouses, etc. Preferably it would be industrial customers with continuous usage of heat, customers that would be within easy transport reach of your current team (so unlikely at this time to be Alaska or McMurdo station in Antarctica). You may have to consider carefully some of the initial potential customers as some of the most eager customers seeking to reduce their costs may be the ones living on the edge of financial viability.

    Are you in contact with military concerns interested to your technology?

  877. Andrea Rossi

    Adrian Hereford:
    The cases are two: either yes, or not.
    Since in the first case there should be obviously a robust NDA, in both cases the answer would necessarily be “no”, with 50% of probability to be a “true” lie.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is the temperature of the plasma in the Ecat uniform, or are there different temperatures?

  879. Andrea Rossi

    RR:
    There are different temperatures in different zones. When applying the Boltzmann formula we consider only the surface of the core, that in an Ecat SK is about 0.5 cm^2 and is where all the energy id produced.

    From having helped launch a software-as-a-service product, I can tell you that testimonials from early adopters is very important for increasing your base of clients. If early adopters choose not to be identified or are self-identified but are not recognizable names in industry, adoption rates may not be optimal. I hope the demo client ultimately chooses to self-identify (even if their exact location remains unknown).

    A very simple, “yes or noo” kind question: do you think that nuclear fusions are made in the Ecat?

    I am excited to see what the new year will bring in the form of your upcoming demonstration. While we are waiting I was wondering if you could answer a question.

    In the past you had believed that the following was important to heat generation in your reactors.

    Li7 + p -> Be8 -> 2 He4 + E

    Is that still the case with the LX and its bigger brothers?

    Dear Andrea,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    You wrote on January 1st, 2016 at 00.00.01 AM about an inspiring dream you had days earlier:
    “Several nights ago, I had a dream. The E-Cat X had been produced in billions of pieces, each of them assembled with others in various combinations to make public lamps: a town was totally illuminated by the E-Cat X and from every lamp a network of pipes and of wires was able to distribute heat and electricity to the houses.

    In that town there were about 1 million lamps each of them of 500 watts, consuming about 50 watts; consequently, there were 450 MWh/h produced, of which about half were turned into heat distributed to the houses through a network of well insulated pipes, running underground, like optic fibers, the other half was used to light the town and to distribute electricity to the households. The cost of the E-Cat X was around 50 $/kW of power, due to the production of billions of pieces per year in all the world, with tens of thousands of jobs. Less taxes were paid by the people, due to the saves derived from low pollution and low energy cost for public services. Millions of persons were also earning money selling E-Cats and every owner of E-Cats was saving money in utilities (electricity, heat, light).”

    Now, three years later, are you and the team on course in fulfilling this dream? Have you developed a conceptual model how this city may look in the future? Any guesstimate on how long this vision may be fulfilled? Have you had any other revelations lately?

    Again, Happy New Year to you and your team!

    I think you underestimate the oil companies when you say what are you going to ignore?
    In my opinion, in the shadows, they are already trying to spy on your work and will not miss a single opportunity to put sticks in your wheels because that is their interest.

    I wish you, your family and your team, the E-Cat, Leonardo Corporation an excellent year 2019.
    – To you, your family and your team, a good health and a lot of happiness to share.To You personally have huge progress in tennis to finally succeed in snatching a game or maybe a small set to your wife
    – At E-Cat, long life and many future applications.
    – To Leonardo, a good business and perhaps, although my crystal ball is very pessimistic on this point, a first dollar of profit.

    Dear Andrea,
    what I ment was that you can make the electrcity of the heat and sell only the electrcity. And it will be up to the costumer to decide what to do with the electricity.

  922. Andrea Rossi

    Lars:
    That could surely be an eventual step, but in this first step we sell heat and the Client makes what he wants with it. We sell heat at the temperature the Customer wants, eventually the Customer can do electricity.

    I just read this Interesting article On applying Octonions to the physics behind the standard model:

    https://bigthink.com/surprising-science/physicists-puzzled-by-strange-numbers-that-could-explain-reality

    I found this work by someone called Cohl Furey particularly interesting.

    I thought it might be interesting to Carl Oscar Gulstrom or one of your other colleagues working on theoretical models. Carl in particular seems to have a very good grasp on the resonances involved with the standard model and what they mean. I’m curious if this work would fit with his ideas.

    Anyway happy New Year to all your team. 2019 should be quite a year I think. Certainly looks like it will start well.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    About your theoretical suggestion related to the annihilation of low energy virtual Fermions: when they annihilate they can only give back the energy necessary to form them: from where comes the gain?
    Happy New Year!
    Prof

  926. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    You made a very good point, but there is a way that explains the gain and we are studying it, also through a series of experiments. Maybe we will confirm it, but may also be that we find another solution.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  927. Lars

    Dear Andrea.
    Do you think that the Ecat eventually only will be used for electricity production? There is no limit of demand
    of electrcity so all your working efforts could go to produce electricity and sell that electricity to the grid.

  928. Andrea Rossi

    Lars:
    No, I think the Ecat will have its lead in the production of heat, that is a “fundamental field”, from which derive the other fields, like electricity.

  933. Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    you answer to CC remebered me something i said you some time ago.
    As you know, i work in the medical field, especially with magnetic resonance machines.
    I remembered you the magnetic resonance and the 42.58Mhz/Tesla gyromagnetic ratio for the Hydrogen atom in water. In other materials like the charge can be different but I don’t think too different. The frequency response of the charge has something to do with this effect? Remember that the earth magnetic field is about 5*10-4 Tesla. Are you using also a magnet/electromagnet to have a known magnetic field? If i have guessed right, it can be useful, from a paper point of view, to calculate the exact resonance frequency, so to estimate the gyromagnetic ratio in the contest of the charge material.

    Regards,
    Marco.

  934. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    Thank you for your suggestions.
    The frequency response has something to do with this effect.
    We use a magnet/electromagnet to have a known magnetic field.

    2- Experimentally, he has explained to me the role of Lithium, that formerly I had undervalued: read my first patent, granted in Italy in 2011 and my second patent, applied for in March 2012 and granted in the USA in 2015 and eventually granted in all North America, South America, all Europe, Japan, Russia, China, Australia, South Africa: the substantial difference is a heritage of what I learnt from Prof Sven Kullander.

    2. How do you think that oil- and coalcompanies will react after the 31:th of January?
    3. Are the E-cat still assembled by manual labour?
    4. Is there any factory for assembling in Sweden?
    All my friends are skeptic when I talk about E-cat.
    Good luck the 31:th of January. I am really looking forward to the live showing.

    @ Christopher Calder
    From your comment:

    …….. The straightforward mathematical discovery by Dr. Karl Zeller and Dr. Ned Nikolov ……… if their finding is proven accurate could bankrupt the wind and solar industries and put heavy pressure on politicians to end biofuel mandates ……. uses official NASA data to quantify the average temperatures of the hard surfaced satellite bodies orbiting our Sun. ”

    This is astonishingly interesting. And it is also astonishing that although this analysis seems to first have been brought to light in 2011, we have not heard of it until now. (It is not difficult to guess why.)

    There may also be an interesting analogy. While BILLIONS of dollars are being spent annually to promote the view that global temperatures are rising because of human activities, just two scientists working at the United States Department of Forestry – at the cost, at most, of merely their own salaries – appear to have demonstrated that human activity is causing a percentage of any perceived effects on climate that is in a quantity indistinguishable from zero.

    The analogy, of course, is that while many tens of BILLIONS of dollars have already been spent, with little if any evidence of success, to find methods for generating inexpensive and safe energy from non-fission nuclear reactions, a single individual – certainly with help from a team of assistants – appears to have done it pretty much on his own.

    This is testimany to the astonishing ability of governments to devote (waste) massive quantities of scarce resources to poorly thought out schemes, while the occasional genius proves able to outperform legions of government-sponsored scientists.

    Of course, let’s first see if these results prove to stand up to the test of time. Should they do so, it will show that the 97% of atmospheric scientists supposedly believing humans are materially affecting the climate, appear to be completely ignorant of even the most elementary details of climate science: the combined effect of solar irradiance and adiabatic temperature effects within the atmosphere.

    I really do welcome you taking a day off, after all, people need to relax once and a while.
    But torturing yourself in a tennis match against a crack like your wife during a whole day, I do not understand.
    So, when she continues beating you, I would advice to stop and taking some pleasant time to give us this glimpse of the LENR future.
    On the other hand, if the impossible thing happens and you keep on winning, then beat her once and for all!

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I watched the video on youtube od the November 24th demo of the Ecat QX in Stockholm. I resisted all the three hours through: remarkable. I tried to find flaws in the demo: I didn’t succeed. Will you industrialize also the production of that 20 W reactor?
    I wish you a New Year with the success you merit,
    Abraham

  965. Andrea Rossi

    Abraham:
    Not for the time being, because being focused on industrial installations we are working on higher ratings.
    Happy and successful new Year also to you and your family,
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    Is there any chance that you will reveal a small glimpse of your work at New Year’s Day, just to make us more curious?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  967. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Honestly, at New Year’s day I will not work. Will play tennis with my wife and enjoy the day.
    In these days we all are continuing our work to prepare the industrialization of a product I deem mature and also the theoretical Team is working very well on the front of the theoretical bases of the effect. Important experiments have been done, more have to be done.
    Warm Regards,

  968. Italo

    Dear Ing.Rossi,
    jointly with the MoD Italy we developed a NANOMATERIAL with the following tested characteristics: thickness half centimeter-one side 1300°C – the other side 500°C – as long as you need- not expensive -not heavy- easy to handle .Maybe it can be used as isolator for your E-Cat X?
    Italo

  969. Andrea Rossi

    Italo:
    We can test it if you send a small sample of at least 5 square cm, along with a data sheet and the price per square meter for 100 sq m to:
    Leonardo Corporation
    1331 Lincoln Rd S.te 601

  970. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    As you well know, nature created the fundamental mathematical relationship now known as E=mc2. Humans only discovered it; they didn’t invent it. The straightforward mathematical discovery by Dr. Karl Zeller and Dr. Ned Nikolov has many enemies. If their finding is proven accurate, it could bankrupt the wind and solar industries and put heavy pressure on politicians to end biofuel mandates. It would embarrass most politicians and almost all climate scientists, even those who believe carbon dioxide has no significant effect on Earth temperatures.

    The Zeller-Nikolov climate finding uses official NASA data to quantify the average temperatures of the hard surfaced satellite bodies orbiting our Sun. The formula is not applicable to the gas planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Zeller and Nikolov claim to be able to determine the long term average temperature of Venus, Earth, Mars, Titan (a moon of Saturn), and Triton (a moon of Neptune) by using just two informational values: their distance from the Sun and their atmospheric pressure.

    Zeller and Nikolov have found that the gaseous composition of atmospheres is immaterial to determining long term average temperatures. For example, the atmosphere of Venus is composed of 96.5% carbon dioxide, while Earth’s atmosphere contains only .04% carbon dioxide, yet those vast differences are irrelevant to the mathematical calculations required to determine average temperatures. This mathematical proof tells us that the atmosphere of Venus contains 2,412 times the percentage of carbon dioxide as Earth, yet that staggering amount of CO2 has no effect on the average temperature of Venus. Carbon dioxide and all the other atmospheric gases only contribute to temperature by their physical mass and resultant atmospheric pressure. Zeller and Nikolov claim that their predictions for planets and moons are accurate to within one degree Celsius, a finding so precise that coincidence can reasonably be ruled out.

    The Zeller-Nikolov discovery means that Earth’s atmosphere keeps us warm via gas compression heating under the weight of Earth’s approximately 300 mile thick atmosphere, not by any greenhouse effect. An actual greenhouse has a glass wall enclosing it. Earth has no enclosure and is open to space, so the two scientists suggest that the term “greenhouse effect” be replaced by “atmospheric thermal enhancement.” Heat is created by compressing atmospheric gases through the pull of gravity. Similarly, in a diesel engine a piston is used to compress gases to generate enough heat to eliminate the need for a spark plug. The tremendous gravitational pull on the enormous mass of Earth’s atmosphere combined with solar radiation warms our planet just enough to allow carbon based life forms to flourish.

    Despite multiple technical reviews by scientists around the world, no one has found error in their mathematical formula and specific computations. Objections raised against their discovery are largely that it does not fit accepted climate theories which are professionally and politically popular. Climate science has become a tool of Left Wing political power and an enormous money making profession for scientists, professors, universities, state and federal government employees, and a thousand and one green scam businesses. Just think of all the billions of dollars being spent on theories of climate change and the mandated false remedies. No doom equals no costly remedies and no profits for the salesmen of fear.

    Real science has proven that you cannot control the weather with windmills and solar panels any more than you can control the weather with bowling balls and statues of dead politicians, yet the climate fear business continues. Even Donald Trump sold out the long term security and affordability of the human food supply to the biofuel lobby. Science, reason, and common sense do not rule in Washington, D.C.. Special interests and bare-knuckle greed are still the fundamental emperors of America.

    The doomsday anti-carbon theories of Al Gore and Michael E. Mann have never been proven by empirical testing. Climate gurus keep pushing the date of catastrophe into the future because the global doom they keep predicting never arrives. What has arrived are ordinary and expected minor fluctuations in Earth’s climate that have been going on since Earth was formed. Ask yourself, when did the Earth have a climate that was more pleasant and beneficial to mankind than the climate we have today? The honest answer is simply *never*.

    Dr. Karl Zeller confesses to being a “bleeding heart liberal,” not a conservative or an agent of the fossil fuel industry. Zeller states that his only interested is in provable science, and that “This climate controversy is costing billions, making the wrong folks rich, and keeps us from solving real environmental problems.”

    I first heard about this discovery in September, 2018, and at first I thought it sounded crazy. Over time, and after doing background research, I have found their conclusions to be very credible, and the clarity of their mathematics difficult to argue with. If their gas compression theory is false, how did they get their mathematical formulas to work so precisely? Qualified scientists should either expose their mistakes or applaud their mathematical formulas and theory as useful tools for better understanding climate science. All science progresses through an open-minded peer review process, not through censorship of new ideas for political and financial reasons. Please remember that a mathematical finding, if proven valid, is a real phenomenon; as real as finding a diamond in a river bed. Nature creates fundamental mathematical relationships; humans only discover them.

    My personal interest is in saving the human food supply from myopic environmentalists who have unconsciously become enemies of affordably priced food. What good is food if it becomes too expensive for ordinary people to buy? All our food is made of carbon with the help of fossilized carbon based fuels. The inherently inefficient renewable energy schemes: wind, solar, and biofuels, have caused food cost inflation and increased environmental damage and economic destruction all over the world. A war on carbon is a war on food, a war on poor people, and a war on life itself. Carbon is the essential ingredient and energy source of all life on Earth. Carbon creatures fighting carbon equals suicide, not science.

    In a blog it has been written by somebody that he had been authorized by Prof Sergio Focardi, Professor Emeritus and dean of Physics of the University of Bologna, to use together with him the Ecat prototype in 2011 and it worked beyond any doubt. Prof Focardi allowed this test while you were not there and you have never been aware of this allowance. Is that possible?

  975. Andrea Rossi

    CC:
    I am not aware of this. Prof Sergio Focardi had the keys to enter my laboratory, but he had signed an NDA and I never authorized anything of the like. Maybe his enthusiasm has overcome the force of the NDA, but I do not believe it.
    He made a very important work with me, I learnt from him how to make the Ecat safe. We obtained our safety certifications thanks to what I learnt from him. If he cheated on me once, what can I say? ” Who is without sin, cast the first stone “. By the way, this is the proper Day to cite the Gospel.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Another very Future application(s):

    After watching the series MARS, where it is assumed that human life will be housed in lava tubes on the Moon and/or on Mars (to avoid cosmic radiation’s effect on humans. The temperature extremes range from 80F to extremely cold. So I could foresee an eCat-based heater being used to make the living quarters comfortable, and extracting water and other materials (oxygen, etc.) from local deposits. It would be powered by solar cells and a storage battery or by direct conversion to electricity from the eCat system. All without the nasty radioactive by-products of a conventional nuclear-based systems. Merry Christmas.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) is building a 10 MW Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) demonstration plant in San Antonio, Texas.

    ” Construction of the Supercritical Transformational Electric Power (STEP) pilot plant at the 15-acre facility at Southwest Research Institute’s (SwRI’s) San Antonio, Texas, campus, kicked off on October 15, and it is slated to wrap up in 2020. ”

    https://www.powermag.com/10-mw-supercritical-carbon-dioxide-demonstration-project-breaks-ground/?fbclid=IwAR1csFZKnw2iWkmpujk3nfo1-BRZc16W-wAg1_aksguxEDmf5eVS53ihe1E

    http://www.sco2symposium.com/www2/sco2/papers2018/testing/076_Paper.pdf

    “Among STEP’s most remarkable promises is that, owing to the efficiency of sCO2 as a thermal medium, its turbomachinery can be one tenth the size of conventional power plant components. ”

    The sCO2 turbine was developed for Concentrating Solar Power applications (DOE SunShot Initiative) and it should soon be ready to be used with other sources of thermal energy – e.g. E-CAT SK.

    Merry Christmas (again) and a Happy and Healthy New year.

    Hello Andrea Rossi,
    First of all, I want to apologize for my very weak English, we are French. Your research is truly amazing, as well as the culmination of your hard work. We are a young company, specified in the electrical production. We like to provide the least polluting energy possible. Coming to my question of your container ECAT 1MW, this product interests us a lot. But yet we do not know what energy is provided by it, it is electric energy or steam?
    In the end we would like to produce electricity with this type of product.
    Looking forward to your answer.
    Another big thank you for this scientific advance.

    Dear Andrea,
    i m reading here some proposal for the control system name, if you did not decided yet please consider “Minosse”, for sure you read the ‘Divina Commedia’ so you know that he was in Purgatory judging the souls:

    “Stavvi Minòs orribilmente, e ringhia:
    essamina le colpe ne l’intrata;
    giudica e manda secondo ch’avvinghia.“

    For his role is perfect and the name also sounds good.

    I Wish you and your family a Merry and pleasant Christmas

  1039. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In addition to my suggestion for the Control System – the Swedish word for harmony, ‘Harmoni’, there is also a synonym for harmony, ‘Samklang’.

    Even if it doesn’t win, Samklang has a nice ring to it.

    Just wanted to make another suggestion, 😉

    Joseph Fine

  1040. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    My suggestion for the Control System name is ‘Harmony’, or its Swedish version, ‘Harmoni’ because the last two letters are Ni – for Nickel.

    Our best wishes to you and your team for a wonderful Christmas, a successful demo in January and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

    All our best wishes,

    Joseph and Annette Fine and family

    Hi Andrea,

    This technology has an amazing potential to help support the worlds energy consumption with more sustainable methods. Thank you for your innovation and sustain through the long process of discovering and taking to market such a powerful technology. No simple task.

    You are also sitting on the cusp of a very strong business. I’m curious if there are social, environmental, or institutional campaigns or causes you have been waiting to have a bigger impact in beyond the energy innovations you work with directly. What are the ways you like to Serve and what are your favorite causes that you like to support?

    Dear Andrea,

    I have to say that that I “love” the name ECOS for the OS controller. Possible marketing implementation might include text similar to below:

    ————————-
    We are now pleased to offer our E-Cat heating service, complete with the control system ECOS. Finally, a service you can use that helps the world to improve it’s ECOSystem!

    Dr Andrea Rossi,

    Thanks for the reply. Your answer to my first question was a relief to hear.

    On my 2nd question, I understand your point with respect to ionizing radiations, neutrons, etc. I was wondering about a different issue– high temperature metals can have an oxidation or reduction catalytic effect on the component molecules of air. Take for instance a catalytic converter:

    “Catalytic converters require a temperature of 800 degrees Fahrenheit (426 °C) to efficiently convert harmful exhaust gases into inert gases, such as carbon dioxide and water vapor.”

    As with a catalytic converter, the effects of high temperatures can be beneficial.

    – To rephrase my 2nd question: Has the heated output of the E-Cat been analyzed (air and/or water) to verify that the heated fluid is essentially unchanged? (Or possibly changed in a beneficial way?)
    – Or maybe this is a non-issue? After all, people have been heating air and water with high temperature metals for quite some time, I’m just not sure how often they do that at the temperatures that the E-Cat is capable of achieving.

    Thanks again,
    WaltC

  1056. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    The answer to your question is that the analysis of the secondary fluid does not show any remarkable changement.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1057. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    The first month of operation of the heating system in the customer’s factory has passed.

    1 – Is it still running?
    2 – Did everything go well?
    3 – Did you find that the results were those expected?
    4 – Could we know the COP value during the demonstration?

    Sincerely,
    Italo R.

  1058. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- we will talk about this issue during the presentation of January 31st

    Buon giorno Andrea.

    E’ molto che non le scrivo ma ieri, mentre vedevo la
    trasmissione televisiva “Report” (giornalismo d’inchiesta),
    non ho potuto fare a meno di trovare un’analogia, al contrario, con la sua vicenda.
    Analogia al contrario perché, nel caso narrato dalla giornalista
    olandese, la semplicità e velocità di omologazione di un dispositivo per il contenimento delle viscere
    nel post operatorio chirurgico dell’addome, ha superato l’incredibile.

    Nel racconto della giornalista olandese è stato subito chiaro che, facendo appello
    al “criterio della similitudine” con altri oggetti già omologati, si possono portare all’uso comune
    cose che per quello non sono state create.

    Incredibile:
    il gruppo di giornalisti ha presentato, alla specifica commissione
    presso gli uffici della CE, la documentazione necessaria (e solo quella) la fine di
    omologare e autorizzare (come detto in precedenza) una rete da applicare come contenimento
    nel post operatorio chirurgico dell’addome, facendo semplicemente appello al criterio della similitudine.
    Peccato che la rete proposta nella documentazione era una di quelle usate per confezionare
    arance/limoni/patate. Ed è stata omologata!

    Ovvero. Le parole, spesso, sono più importanti dei fatti e questo è decisamente inaccettabile.

    Nel caso delle LENR non si è commesso l’errore iniziale di voler un riconoscimento scientifico
    prima di quello sociale/economico/ambientale?
    Quello che voglio dire è: non è stato commesso un errore allorché si sono iniziate le pratiche
    per l’omologazione inserendo nelle descrizioni parole come: radiazioni ionizzanti, fusione etc.…
    e questo abbia fatto si che il procedimento di omologazione si sia inceppato sulle questioni della sicurezza?

    Con notevole anticipo approfitto per farle i migliori auguri per un dicembre fantastico che
    spero la porterà, a fine gennaio, con una grande carica.

    Io sono cattolico praticamente e quindi mi auguro anche possa passare delle ottime giornate con la sua famiglia.

    (Mi scuso per non aver scritto in inglese, ma la mia padronanza della lingua non sarebbe stata
    in grado di tradurre esattamente il concetto che volevo esprimere)

    SYNOPSIS OF THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
    RECENTLY A GROUP OF JOURNALISTS, PRETENDING TO BE PHYSICIANS, PRESENTED TO A CERTIFICATION PROCEDURE A DUMMY, BUT USING A PROPER PROFESSIONAL JARGON AND THE DUMMY HAS BEEN CERTIFIED. MAYBE THE CERTIFICATIONS IN THE LENR FIELD HAVE BEEN PRESENTED IN A WRONG WAY? [SYNOPSIS MADE BY A.R.]

  1062. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    I do not think so, the LENR case is particular and there are liabilities concerning the domestic households.
    We obtained the certifications for the industrial applications. For the domestic, more statistics are necessary. The difference is enormous, because in industrial applications there are certified operators, not laymen.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1063. WaltC

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    A point of curiosity:

    1- Do the heated fluids, e.g., air or water, have contact with the interior regions of the E-Cat reactor, within the shielding where some level of ionizing radiation exists?
    2- Independent of the 1st question, have the heated fluids undergone testing for reactive, unexpected or unwanted contaminants, ozone, oxides, etc?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  1064. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    1- no
    2- always and in more than 11 years never have been detected ionizing radiations, neutrons or noxious emissions out of the reactors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Do you think the Ecat will affect the oil market?

  1068. Andrea Rossi

    Chuck Davis:
    In the short and middle term no. After that I’d need the crystal ball. I believe in a future synergy of all the available energy sources.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1069. BG

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    you say that the clients will pay only the energy that the Ecat will generate. Does this mean that the electric energy consumed by the Ecat will be paid by Leonardo Corporation?

  1070. Andrea Rossi

    BG:
    This depends on the specific terms of the agreements made with the specific Clients. Obviously this is a parameter that has to be considered when the profitability is calculated. Sometimes can be convenient we pay directly the energy consumed by the Ecat, sometimes, for example when the Client pays convenient fees, is better subtract the price the energy consumed by the Ecat from the price of the energy to be billed for.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1071. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    The January demonstration is intended to attract companies that can utilise heat; you will need to convince company owners and shareholders that heat from the Ecat is controllable, stable, can be supplied on a long term basis, can be produced in sufficient MW, and above all else that it will be profitable to them.

    However these same companies will have employees whose concern above all else will be SAFETY. The Ecat and supporting equipment will have to be transported by road to site, installed, commissioned, operated over time, maintained with new parts and used parts removed from site. During any of these operations, accidents can happen; offloading from transport things get dropped, personnel run forklifts into things, buildings burn down, companies go bust and the equipment gets scrapped. You need to show that the Ecat is safe before operation, during operation and after operation, safe to transport before and after use, safe during maintenance, safe to dispose, safe under as many circumstances as possible.

    Is it possible at the time of demonstration to release videos of Ecats being tested for as many types of emissions as possible? Testing Ecats before use, during use, and after use, examined for Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation, electromagnetic radiation, X-rays, magnetic fields, Neutron emission or any other emission that could be a safety concern. Use as high accuracy equipment as possible, provide the equipment specifications, provide up to date calibration certificates, if possible have an independent agency present to witness the safety testing. If it was possible crush an unused and a worked Ecat to small pieces and demonstrate that there is no unsafe emissions or radioactive materials. A visual demonstration of safety will be worth far more than any amount of declarations or statements.

    The more video information you can put out on the internet to demonstrate SAFETY at this point in time, the faster you will be able to proceed in future. The companies who will utilise the heat from your Ecats have employees, they will talk to their relatives, there will be neighbours to the companies, also local officials may enquire, these people may be curious or alarmed about this new technology, they certainly will go on the internet to learn, what they will find is a lot of speculation about the emissions, claims of exotic particles, strange radiation, and lots more. You will have to educate people on the reality of any Ecat emissions, and above all else the SAFETY.

    The world desperately needs a new power source, but before it can be adopted people will want to know it is safe.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  1072. Andrea Rossi

    Keith T.:
    Forgot to say: for industrial applications we have been granted the safety certification of the Ecat from Bureau Veritas and from CGS.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    I would agree with Iggy Dalrymple, contolling your Ecats appears about as difficult as the herding of cats.

    So HOCS = Herding Of Cats Software

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson

  1076. Andrea Rossi

    Keith T.:
    You raised good points.
    Obviously safety is necessary.
    We have always in operation detectors of ionizing radiations and neutrons when we have Ecats turned on. This has been so since we started our experiments with the Ecat 11 years ago. Prof Sergio Focardi has been hired by us as a consultant specifically for this issue.
    We also had plenty of measurements of radiation made by specialists from universities and independent laboratories.
    Never has been found ionizing radiation emitted from the Ecats toward the environment beyond the values of the background of the site.
    All our Ecats are supplied with ionizing radiations and neutrons detectors.
    Besides:
    1- we do not use radioactive materials
    2- we do not produce radioactive materials
    During the test of the 1 MW plant in Doral, Florida, in the year 2016 the specialists sent from the State of Florida to check the radiations found no radiations or neutron emission beyond the background and allowed us to proceed with our test without problems.
    About the profitability, the reliability and stability of the Ecats, the risks are all upon me, because the Clients will pay only the energy that the Ecat will generate. Our Clients must have a back up system that guarantees absence of damns in case of Ecats malfunctions, that during the initial period of our service must be expected, being a new technology.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    For a name of your operating software:

    EROS is the Greek god of sensual love and desire.

    Since eCat technology is your love and your desire to bring it into widespread usage, the name seems appropriate.

    Concerning the ‘naming E-cat software’ contest, I also liked ‘ECOS’, first mentioned by WaltC and further commented by Italo R.

    If you want to emphasize that the E-cats are remotely controlled, you could add an “R” to it:

    Then you get: ERCOS = E-cat Remote COntrol Software, but then you loose the ecological suggestion. With an “R” added to it, it becomes more ‘earthed’, as if you suggest a reference to earth. (‘ERde’)

    Here some further suggestions (most of them with the “R” of Remote in it):

    ERC = E-cat Remote Controller
    ERCS = E-cat Remote Control Software

    REC = Remote E-cat Controller
    RECS = Remote E-cat Control Software

    ET = E-cat Tuner (not ‘Turing’ 😉
    ETS = E-cat Tuning Software
    ET*2 = ETET = Extra Terrestrial E-cat Tuner 😉
    ET*2S = ETETS = Extra Terrestrial E-cat Tuning Software 😉

    ERT = E-cat Remote Tuner
    ERTS = E-cat Remote Tuning Software

    RET = Remote E-cat Tuner
    RETS = Remote E-cat Tuning Software

    ERAS = E-cat Remote Attuning Software

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel
    P.S. My intials = DDC = Direct Digital Control 😉

    Leonard

  1096. Andrea Rossi

    Leonard:
    Our strategy to sell heat, not plants and control the Ecats from remote has put our “army” in a stronghold with a solid defensive system and a ready to counterattack offensive system. We think we are ready to react even in the first critical phase, after a thoroughly-made due diligence upon the supposed sources of the attacks we will receive, as hidden behind a curtain of trolls as they, we anticipate, will be.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which criteria have been put at the base of the design of the industrialized Ecat SK, if any?

  1099. Henrik

    Dr Rossi &all.
    I believe I’ve found the source for confusion regarding the $1000 bet claimed to have been made by ”Anonymous” earlier:
    https://www.sofascore.com/sv/lag/tennis/rossi-andrea/199372
    Perhaps this could serve as a reminder never to confuse spear-head inventing with junior sports? And, that titles in front of names sometimes can be of great importance. Maybe instead, Anonymous should have put that money down for the surprise come-back of Domenico Fioravanti in the italian national swimming championshionships next year(see earlier posts here or search the e-catworld.com).
    Looking forward to january the 31st!

    Congratulations on the long distance you have run in this race. I am amazed. You have been given what would be seen as a miraculous performance overcoming obstacles of intellect, finance, health and, I suspect, spirit at times.
    I hope to be even more amazed after the presentation of January 31st.
    I think that “Maestro” would be the right name for the control software: a central coordinator of the orchestra of the Ecat instruments, combining their individual contribution into a harmonious whole, creating a symphony of power.
    Very much looking forward to the launch of your marvellous product!

  1105. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    In the past you have said you would not allow to use the Ecat to heat a residential area (many houses) centrally. E.g. distributing hot water or steam from a central ECat SK station to the different houses (1 MW for 50 houses, or 100 MW for 5000 houses).
    Now you know how the SK works and can be operated, would you reconsider this?

    Merry Christmas and a successful first commercial year for you and your team.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    This fall I had the opportunity to travel to North Dakota. While there I talked with the people at the local feed mill. I suggested that it must be their busy season but they said they didnt know what they should do because the price of grain was so low and the cost to dry the grain was so high there was little profit. I am sure that the E-cat will be a huge help to the farmers in drying grains and feeding our nation. Wishing you and your team greet success.

    SKUNC

    It can stand for either “SK Unassailable Network Controller” or “SK Universal Nerve Center”.

    I have been following your work since 2011 and feel that I am a witness to the start of something remarkable.

    It seems strange to thank someone for simply being who they are, but thank you for your unquenchable sense of wonder and your indomitable spirit. They are a potent combination and, I’m quite certain, an inspiration to many of your followers.

  1138. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A unique suggestion for an eCat application.

    Problem: The oceans and shoreline are polluted with plastic of all types. Manned clean-up is too slow and too costly.

    Solution: An unmanned ship, powered by an eCat system (which in turn is powered by solar cells and batteries), collects the plastic and burns it? The floating “raft” would slowly move on the surface of the deep oceans, occasionally reporting its location (for navigation safety purposes) and is refueled and serviced once per year. It would move slowly so that fish would not be trapped but the plastic collected, chopped up and burnt. Thoughts?

  1139. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N, Karels:
    It is a good idea. This is one of the many sectors of application of the Ecat.Enterpreneurs of all the world will surely invent and manufacture many different applications, as it happened with internet, an invention of the CERN of Geneva.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1140. Toussaint françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    The 19 November 2018 the first commercial LENR reactor in the world started heating a commercial building in the US makes me think of Enrico Fermi (another italian) started his Graphite Reactor the 4 November 1943 !

    Merry Christmas

  1141. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    If as you have stated “We did not yet run an Ecat to complete exhaustion”, how do you arrive at an operational lifespan for a Ecat?

    I would expect that through multiple testing at controlled kW outputs you would establish a kW vs lifespan curve / gradient, you could then approximately predict the time elapsed before the controlled output would drop below a specific kW, then using conservative factors determine both the kW rating and operational time span for a Ecat module.

    20 kW and one year are nice round numbers for a commercial launch.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  1142. Andrea Rossi

    Keith T.:
    Thank you for your suggestion,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1143. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    1) – I think that in the demonstration at the end of January, pictures and/or videos of ECAT in your workshop will be shown. Is it right?

    2) – It would also be very interesting to see your heating system in the customer’s factory, without the need to know his name or city. Will it be possible?

    In fact, seeing the E-Cat on a lab bench is a technical demonstration, but seeing it already working becomes a commercial demonstration.

    Kind Regards,

    Italo R.

  1144. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1145. Claud

    Dear Andrea, few days ago Sam asked you to endorse e-cat heating for the climatization of the Miami Airlines Stadium. Do you think that for Sport Centers open to public regulars the e-cat heathing could be presently allowed? Or is it restricted to manufacturing plants only?
    Best wishes of both type.

  1146. Andrea Rossi

    Claud:
    In Miami you do not need heating, with exception for several days during the Winter: for example, this year we had to turn on the heaters for one day so far, while today we have the air conditioners turned on, as well as most of the days during the Winter. Speaking in general, the idea could be good. I am not able to answer now, because I do not know the issues related to the authorizations in this particular field: at first sight, they do not seem to be a piece of cake.
    Thank you for the suggestion, though.
    Warm Regards,

    Hi Andrea,

    I’ve been following your progress for many years. Congratulations to you and your team for the fantastic work to bring this invention to life. I look forward to your presentation in January.

    I have a suggestion for the naming of the E-Cat control system – the E-Cat COLLAR, COntrol Link from the Labour of Andrea Rossi.

    Good luck with the next few years and I hope you change the world!

    Kind regards
    Peter

  1158. Tom Conover

    Hi Andrea,

    So you are looking for nominations to name the polling/management control software. My crystal ball thinks that “E-CAT.Unify” or “E-CAT.Unity” might be possible choices for the control software. Consolidation of the operation usage data would provide you with useful history data too!

    Hope you are enjoying the Florida weather, we have snow and cold weather in Wisconsin. We have a propane fireplace to aesthetically offset our geothermal heating system, but an e-cat would be even more enjoyable. Keep up the great work.

    Tom

  1159. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for the suggestions; yes, now I am working in Miami, the weather is nice, but during the last two weeks I was not far from where you are in a factory heated by the Ecat SK.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1160. WaltC

    Dr Andrea Rossi,

    With respect to naming subsystems– basic acronyms:

    ECS: E-Cat Control Software
    ECU: E-Cat Control Unit (for Hardware & software)

    Or, more appropriate for a new energy source:

    ECOS: E-Cat Control Operation Software)
    EMCC (EMC-squared): E-Cat Monitor, Command and Control (for H/W & S/W)

    To you, your family & your team, the best for the Holidays & for next month’s demo!

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I watched on youtube the video of the Ecat QX demo in Stockholm on November 24, with a power of 20 W: it is unbelievable that after one year you are able to deliver in the market an Ecat rated 20 kW and introduce it on January 31st.
    Are you sure you are not going to scretch?

  1165. Andrea Rossi

    Oscar:
    I am sure. We are ready already.

  1170. Stephen

    Hi Andrea,

    I was just wondering if you maybe needed a suit if SW. as well as the control SW at the other end.

    It seems to me you have also developed a lot in the communication handling between the on site and off site equipment so I was wondering if there I s a SW development for that.

    Maybe an app interface where the customer could select usage parameters such as temperature control requirements at different times if day and days of week periods of different activity etc. (but I suppose the simplest solution in the beginning is that’d just a default temperature range and may be this is more relevant to the bioler and equivalent if

    But probably in a burst of over enthusiasm I’m complicating things. Which I don’t want to do and I apologize for.. Its enough to think about the control SW it self. It’s a great idea to ask for ideas.

    Best Regards

    Stephen

  1171. Andrea Rossi

  1176. Optimist

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I know I am not alone expecting on Jan 31 to be witnessing the birth of an historic moment in science history .
    A similar moment was Dec 31 1879 when Edison showed his light bulb first time in public.
    He then stated “We will make electricity so cheap that only the rich will burn candles.”
    You could very well state the same just instead using “heat” and “fossils”.
    There are more similarities, Edison did not invent artifical light but was first to make it practical. Similar as you have made with heat from LENR.
    New York Times published their exclusive first main stream article already Dec28.
    (https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/learning/general/onthisday/big/1021.html#article)

    Could you also consider inviting NYT?

    To You and Your Team
    My Best Wishes for Jan 31 and rest of 2019

    Optimist

  1177. Andrea Rossi

    Optimist:
    We will invite nobody, the video will be made in our factory, as well as the broadcast and we want not to make it public so far, for security reasons.
    Anybody will be able to watch the streaming.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1178. Stephen

    Hi Andrea

    For data transfer I quote like “the name “Catapult” not sure if it’s been used before.

    Perhaps you need a series of SW an app at the client (cat Nap?) Control SW at head quarters and communication SW?

    Grear news it’s already out there being used officialy by a customer. The LENR revolution has already started quietly in the background it seems.

    All the best for Christmas and the extraordinary new year.

    Best Regards

    Stephen

    Hii Andrea Rossi

    I like Brokeeper’s idea but In case you need some others..

    If the SW controls when the cat sleeps how about cat nap?

    If it controls when and how the cat wakes up how about… WOOF! 😉

    Or perhaps it’s more the mouse it controls?

    Dear Andrea.
    Congratulations with Your first “heat customer” and the plant ready for automatic production of E-Cats. As for all your followers the presentations of COP and further information on January 31 is accomodated with great excitement.
    I do have some questions concerning the control units.
    1. What will the weight be for a unit able to control 10 off E-Cat SK, and for 50?
    2. Will the control units be more expensive to make than the E-Cats they operate?
    3. Do you assume the weight and cost, will fall considerably when a mass production is established also for these?
    Regards: Svein Henrik

  1191. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Thank you for your sustain.
    Answers:
    1. 10-20 lbs
    2. confidential
    3. the productions costs are inversally proportional to the numbers

  1196. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    I propose naming the software ‘Catnip’ from a description of its effects from a Scientific America artical ‘How Does Catnip Work Its Magic on Cats?’:

    “When cats smell catnip they exhibit several behaviors common to queens in season (females in heat): They may rub their heads and body on the herb or jump, roll around, vocalize and salivate. This response lasts for about 10 minutes, after which the cat becomes temporarily immune to catnip’s effects for roughly 30 minutes.”
    https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/experts-how-does-catnip-work-on-cats/

    Sounds like effects the software has on the E-Cat.
    With much respect

  1202. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    As we all can see, your business strategy presents the E-cat in silence and in a very soft way, waiting for the market to slowly notice what you have in your hand.

    At this point, one would instead expect great fanfares, presentations to a large audience of journalists and scientists, articles and broadcasts on all world media. And of course the right recognition of your work.

    After all, the E-cat is real and is the greatest revolution for humanity after the discovery of fire.

    Surely in your choices there are motivations that we do not know and that explain your actions.

    I know very well that this is a very sensitive subject and it is not possible to know more.

    Anyway, could you tell us your thought? Thank you.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.
