    Dr. Rossi, I’m completely confident that the demo will deliver amazing results, and I hope that this may finally be the beginning of marketing.
    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Beginning of the marketing no, beginning of the process of industrializaton I think yes.

    Andrea,

    Glad to see I’m still on your list. We are looking to power up our new facilities with alternative energy, and you continue to be on our list as well.

    Did you ever get the information you needed on Sterling Engines? I’m 77 now, and I still have my old old Cessna in need of a good reliable engine for my Atlantic Crossing before I croak. :-)

    Hello Mr. Rossi

    i see there is some demo coming in the next days.
    What will the device show? Some ‘heat’ measured by some infra-red-device (remote thermometer)?
    Or will it produce steam ? Will the steam be made visible? Or will you just say ‘we have 105’C,
    so inside this pipe there *must* be steam’ and therefore the COP is…

    Greetings from cold Europe

  16. Andrea Rossi

    DvH:
    You see there is some demo coming up in the next days? Really? Wow! That’s some mouthful!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I saw this article this morning.

    Perhaps you may be interested in an inexpensive Muon Detector.

    https://phys.org/news/2017-11-physicists-handheld-muon-detector.html

    It may be useful as well as important to use multiple detectors to measure Muon levels in the vicinity of the E-Cat QX.

    Even if few or zero Muons are detected, that would be reassuring to those concerned about possible high Muon levels.

    Best wishes for the Nov 24th Demo and Happy Thanksgiving,

    Joseph Fine

    @Gabriel Berra,

    I agree that the green turbine maybe is a better option to co-operate with the E-cat:

    Green Turbine 15kW:

    Green Turbine 1.5kW:

    http://www.greenturbine.eu/GT1.html

    Kind Regards,

  19. Gabriel Berra

    Hi Andrea. http://www.greenturbine.eu sell a 15 KW steam powered turbine that only weighs 9kg for about 16,000 euro. Lighter and cheaper than a sterling engine and I suspect of similar efficiency. Best of luck on Friday.

  25. Alfonso Troisi Lopez

    Hello Mr. Rossi,

    Congratulations to you for reaching 5 Sigma and in bocca al lupo for the presentation on friday.

    I’ve been following your progress through this blog and I hope soon you can see your golden baby at work in many places. Hopefully the home units will follow soon.

    I am curious to know about the factories where the e-cat QXs are going to be built.

    a. the factories are ready
    b. the robotized lines are under construction
    c. the robots are being built
    d. the robots are being ordered

    May God bless you, your crew and your family. Your gift to humanity is precious.

    @Nereo Miconi,

    Some time ago on this blog, you asked about the possibility to produce hydrogen with the E-cat.

    Well, you can do that by electrolysis. If the heat energy of E-cat QuarkX is transformed to electrical energy (for big units probably by Carnot-cycle, using steam turbines coupled with electrical generators; and for small units probably by sterling engines coupled with electrical generators in small units), you can make hydrogen by electrolysis of water.

    In the past (more than ten years ago) “Hydrogensystems” (then a Belgian company, but also many years ago absorbed by the Canadian Company “Stuart Engineering”) selled small and completely stand-alone electrolysis units, producing hydrogen (H2) by electrolysis, out of water (H2O), that possibly could co-operate with wind turbines, so it also could co-operate with the E-cat if the heat energy of the E-cat is transformed to electrical energy (via Carnot for big units, or via Sterling engines for smaller units).

    With the E-cat, and especially with the E-cat QuarkX, everything is possible! 😉

    Kind Regards,

  31. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    i) Congratulations to you and your team for attaining sigma 5 with your Ecat-QuarkX!

    ii) Many thanks for organizing a demo (about the E-cat QuarkX) next friday. I hope to see it on lifestream.

    iii) Some time ago and because of your interest in it, there were a lot of messages about Sterling engines on this forum, and therefore this Question:

    1) Did you already get the necessary certification for the home-unit, and therefore your interest in the possible use of Sterling engines in it?

    2) Or do you also focus on the use of the E-cat in the automotive industry, because of the fact that an E-cat combined with a Sterling engine coupled to an electrical motor loading the battery of an electrical car is a better way to drive an electrical car without the need of very expensive batteries with very big capacity? (I agree, contineously loading a small battery is much better than using big batteries, so this is a very interesting future application of the E-cat, because present application of big batteries in electrical cars: is expensive; still doesn’t have a good actiradius; and still takes a lot of loading time).

    3) Or do you left the idea and only focus on producing heat at this moment?

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

  32. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea
    I have two questions:
    1. As there may be several reports and written comments from attendees present at the demo and from others watching the streaming. May you encourage anyone to send their comment also to eCat.com?
    2. Regarding the demo, will the specifications shown in the website at ecat-technology be revised to match the specifications which applies to the eCat QX?
    My hopes are you may turn Black Friday to Bright Friday.
    Regards Svein Henrik

  33. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    1- Sure: after the test, questions and comments can be sent also to eCat.com, as well as to this blog and the blogs of Mats Lewan and Frank Acland.
    2- Yes, in due time.
    Warm Regards,

  44. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    To clarify your response to Dr. Joseph Fine — N number of eCat reactors will be all running at 30% of their maximum output value? So if N = 1, the overall thermal output would be 6W, while if N = 100, the overall thermal output would be 600W, assuming the rated maximum output power of a single reactor is 20W. Is my understanding correct?

  45. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    All I said is that the E-Cat QX will run at 30% of its power. Like when you drive your car, supposedly with a rating of 100 HP, at 30 HP.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  46. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    The press release put out yesterday has this part:

    “Andrea Rossi, in his search for a Fusion based clean energy source, can also confirm that Sigma 5 has been reached in preparation for the eCat QX.

    “The Leonardo Corporation has been monumental in developing LENR technology that can turn fusion into a reality, to manufacture a truly renewable energy source that far outperforms all other current options.”

    http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/ecatcom-announces-live-video-demonstration-of-the-ecat-qx-november-24-2017-12-pm-est–live-video-20171116-01068

    In the past you have rejected the term cold fusion or fusion, but stated that the E-Cat is LENR. This press release talks of fusion, so have you changed your thinking on this subject?

    Thank you, and best of luck with the upcoming events!

    Frank Acland

  47. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I did not make that release and I have no idea about who generated it.
    I stick to my position. Problem is that under a journalistic point of view LENR is ostic to digest, let alone Rossi effect.
    Just keep in mind that we did not make press releases and we are not going to do any of the sort before the test is done.
    Probably the journalist that wrote this article has taken information from this blog and elaborated it in a journalistic feature.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  48. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    That’s SOME idea!!!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  49. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With reference to Question 8 of my previous message, I meant that if you can control the COP, by adjusting temperature, pressure , power level etc., maybe you could set up the COP (Coefficient of performance) to be a significant number. For example, if the COP were 5.0, it could indicate Sigma 5; if the COP were 11.24, it would indicate the date 11/24 or the European version COP = 24.11. And even, if the COP were set up to be 12.25, it would be an early wish for a Merry Christmas.

    Anyway that was not an important question. More of a fun question.

    Significant regards,

    Joseph Fine

  50. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    1- the description will be given during the test
    2- it will work at 30% of its power
    3- see 1
    4- see 1
    5- the attendants will have to bring up their cups from home and put a name on them otherwise they will be stolen ( the cups, not the attendants ) and if they will want to wash the cups, they will receive the bills for the consumption of the water ( so much precious, after the global warming stuff ); if they think will get hungry, not even think they will find food, albeit we will allow them to put on the floor clean sheets to picnic on them the food from home.
    6- fingers crossed
    7- see 1
    8- I do not understand: can you rephrase?

  53. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I know you have been looking for jets to be driven by ECat QX. Today I heard Siemens is closing factories producing industrial gas turbines. This closing of factories is very costly, so I would assume that they may be interested to find a new task for turbines. Maybe they are interested in a test with the ECat QX?
    Kind regards, Gerard

  54. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for the suggestion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  55. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If you can answer,

    1) Next week, will you be demonstrating a single 20 W E-Cat QX module or a unit with 3 QX Modules?
    2) Will the unit be set to output at full power or nominal power, e.g. 5-10%?
    3) During the demo, do you expect there will be a time interval when the unit will be in Self Sustaining Mode?
    4) Do you plan to change the output temperature during the demo? (e.g. constant T, ramp up T, constant, ramp down, constant)
    5) Will you provide teacups for attendees (showing the E-Cat CAN produce hot tea), or will they have to bring their own cups?
    6) Congratulations in advance!!!!
    7) Will core temperature be recorded and shown? (e.g. 500 deg C, 800 deg C, etc.)
    8) Can you set the COP so it will be related to the date? For example, COP = 11.24, 112.4 or 1,124 ? Perhaps even 2,018?

    Looking forward to the demo,

    Joseph Fine

  56. Hergen

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I read your very important announcement of the coming presentation on eCAT.com. In this announcement you speak of hydrogen-nickel systems, you use the words “lenr”, “cold fusion” and “fusion”. It seems, the eCatQX is a fusion machine. Is the result of the fusion process helium?

    As always, thank you for your answer and
    hot regards,

    E.H.

  57. Andrea Rossi

    Hergen:
    No. Ionizing radiations are not emitted from the E-Cat, as multiple tests have given proof of, therefore
    I prefer to use the term “Effect”, or ” Rossi effect “, from my patent, until a solid theory will be defined. At the end of the demo we will propose ideas for the construction of a theory.
    Thank you for your attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  58. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Totally focused on the preparation of the demo. We are at the count down: -7!

    Congrats with the sigma 5!

    I do not know if you realize that day sigma 5 was reached it was Saint Martins day 11 November.
    Children in the Netherlands go around the houses with a self made light!

    “Saint Martin of Tours was a Roman soldier who was baptised as an adult and became a monk. The most famous legend concerning him was that he had once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the latter from the cold. That night, he dreamt of Jesus, wearing the half-cloak and saying to the angels, “Here is Martin, the Roman soldier who is now baptised; he has clothed me.” [4] Saint Martin died on November 8, 397.”

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure that many look forward to the E-cat QX presentation 11/24 after 12 o’clock Miami, Florida time.
    Can you give some impression of what will be revealed. I read you will tell about the status of the theory you are developing.
    1. Will you explain which reactions are taking place, how it is possible that the Coulomb barrier is overcome and why no radiation is measured?
    2. Will you explain which reaction(s) produce the heat/light/electricity?
    3. Will you reveal the minimum and maximum COP?
    4. Will you reveal details about the way the QX is being controlled (on/off or in some analogue way like: off- cool- warmer- warm- hot- very hot-)
    5. Will you explain how heat should be removed from the QX (with water, steam, air, inert gas, liquid metal; using natural flow, pumps, fans)
    6. Will you explain how a cluster can be controlled?
    7. Will you tell how far you are with your R&D in integrating the QX into an apparatus like a jet, hot air machine or whatever?
    8. Will you give an impression how you see the world adapting to the E-cat QX (industrial processes, room heating, automotive and aerospace) including a prognosis of its assumed development (quantities, integration in society)?
    9. Will you also reveal aspects of the QX that have never been mentioned?
    10. Will you reveal how the operational details of the QX (operational life, refill fuel or replace QuarkX -clusters, maintenance requirements, safety aspects etc. etc.)

    I know I ask a lot, but you know, we have been waiting so long for this and these questions are just some of the many more details where we have been waiting for.
    I hope the demonstration will be great. Good luck to you and your team
    Kind regards, Gerard

    With no answer to 1, does this mean you now have found a theoretical explanation how this heat occurs, and by this the heat may no longer be regarded as anomalous?
    Will such a theory be presented at the demo?
    Best regards Svein Henrik

  87. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    We will present the status of our theoretical research. Much study remains to be done, though.

    Dear Andrea, Congratulations on sigma 5 ! For the industrialization phase I imagine starting with the production of the Ecat QX as a heater will be the first priority. There is a trillion dollar market for heat and steam. A greater proportion of the $8 trillion annual global energy market is used on heat than transport or electricity generation. 3/4 of this heat is from fossil fuels. Generation of electricity will be a natural evolution of the device but generating heat will be enough to validate your technology and to generate whatever income you and your partners are hoping to achieve. Others can then adapt your technology for electricity generation and transport. Once again – congratulations and good luck.

    And specifically with reference to: ” ……. generating heat will be enough to validate your technology and to generate whatever income you and your partners are hoping to achieve. …..” I would like to add that:

    Most importantly, it will provide the financial wherewithal needed to support the cost of the research and development efforts required to bring all the other applications speedily to reality. Which everyone on the planet, if they know about it, is looking forward to.

    Howdy,

    Congratulations on your upcoming demonstration. I couldn’t find your sign up sheet for the Home Cat, so I decided to start where I left off a Year or so ago.

    So, sign me up for one of your Home Cats. I probably am already on your list, but I would like to make sure.

    All the best,

    Dear Andrea.
    Do you mean 2-11 yes?
    Regards Svein Henrik.

  94. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    Congratulations for achieving Sigma 5. I am unsure what this compromise.
    Do it means that this super high security counts for:
    1. The observation of an anomalous heat is real?
    2. The COP of the heat is higher than 6?
    3. Or COP is higher than 50?
    4. The QX tested, will supply 20W continuously in a year?
    5. The QX do function totally at least in 8760 hours with an interrupted use?
    6. The QX will function in 10 years with 10% intermittent?
    7. A robotic production will be of the same quality or better?
    8. The possibility to control the units?
    9. No harmful radiation is present?
    10. No risk for run off or melt down?
    11. Or all the 10 above?
    I hope you may answer 11 and this is a result of all the different tests you have performed.
    Best wishes for the demo and a soon coming mass production as the world is full of “San Tommaso Apostolo”.
    Regards Svein Henrik.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Just to avoid misunderstandings, when you say “sigma 5”, you mean what is more commonly referred to as “5-sigma”?

    Thank you very much.

    Where will can I see the test?
    Is it possible to have here the link?
    Thanks

  100. Italo R.

    Dr. Rossi, I’m afraid that because of the need to keep Quark X running secret, the result of the demo will remain in the end obscure and incomplete, and this will cause many doubts and criticisms to many observers.
    However, I am aware that this is not very important, because the main priority is to convince potential investors and partners. Am I wrong?
    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Andrea,

    A tremendous victory reaching sigma 5 —
    a result of the perseverence of you and your team!

    I agree that this technology will probably meet some hostility — it’s a disruptive technology that will make a lot of impact on a global economic scale.

    Probably it’s a good idea to plan for any possible eventualities. There are some strong economic incentives to keep this new fire “in the dark”.

  105. Andrea Rossi

    Mattias Andersson:
    No dark if the product is enlightening.

    Andrea,

    Congrads on 5 Sigma. Most products come to market without such development efforts. This should go a long way in making the acceptability of the product more commonplace. Plus, it is a testimony to the dedication and the integrity of not only you but your entire team.

  115. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Our product will have to confront with strong hostility from some center of power, therefore we must be very careful. We are not going to introduce a new kind of trolley…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  116. Dear Dr. Rossi:

    To clarify your E-Cat QuarkX status. Is both research and development complete and the next step is to make a pre-production unit? Or is there more development work ahead?

    Wishing you the best of luck with your progress toward future products.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  117. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G. Zavela:
    R&D will never end, but at this point we are ready to go to the next step, that is the industrialization. The experience made during the one year test of the 1 MW plant combined with the evolution up to the E-Cat QX are a very strong background. Attention, I am not saying that the most is done: an enormous work is waiting for us.

    Dear Andrea,

    Fantastic news on achieving your important goal of Sigma 5! Especially just at this important time just under two weeks from the demonstration of the E-Cat QX. When I think about the obstacles that were being thrown in your path this past year or so I see it as a huge achievement! It’s a demonstration of focus, self disaplin and courage that we can all learn from what ever we do in life.

    I suppose things can only move forward now after such an important measure. I’m very curious about the road ahead. I’m looking forward to the day we find out what new ideas this technology brings us its new applications and also what it teaches us about science. But first I hope to see your technology succeed and distributed the way you want and think you are taking the right path with this with the e-cat.

    Looks like we have some Fantastic times ahead to look forward to

    All the best to you and your team in the next phase of this important work.

    And all the best for the up coming presentation.

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations to you and your team on this world changing achievement! This will certainly accentuate the E-Cat QX portfolio of attributes at the presentation.

    If you are at liberty to answer, during the demonstration:
    1. Will there be representatives from any of the top Fortune 100 companies present?
    2. Will you also demonstrate its direct electrical capabilities?
    3. Because visual effects enhances ones impressions, will any work output be performed?
    (Boiling water or small heat engine driving a mechanical apparatus, a small generator
    for light, miniature hot air balloons hovering over unsuspected observers :), etc.)
    Thank you.
    God bless you and your team,

  142. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Joseph Fine,

    Thank you for the link with the extremely interesting insights.

    This puts me, as a responsible parent, in a bit of a dilemma:
    To the very extent in the education of young people, it is learned that matter and mass are somewhat unchangeable. Most courses of physics and chemistry are built up in this way, and these insights are embedded in the reasoning, laws and formulas.

    Later, when young people have studied a lot and those things are “limited” anchored in their memory, a group of elected higher talents must learn that all these laws apply only in normal, earthly circumstances, but that there is a lot of other features and interactions that are totally incompatible with all that we learned earlier.
    This even bothered the better educated people to accept nuclear energy as something positive. Interactions in atomic nuclei are in fact contrary to the image they have about the functioning of the natural forces.

    Now my question, inspired by the article you referred: I’m here with a young lady who has some time left in school, and whom I would like to give the right insights as a basis. Would there already exist works that use particle physics at the level of young children? To begin with, I have sketched sketches of quarks and down quarks and electrons, how to attract each other, and how to create remaining attraction fields that hold electrons like a kind of satellite or moon in a orbit around the core.
    She replied that she understood that, and could compare with the “blue side and the red side” of the magnets she used in school. The concept of remote exercise is thus already understandable for young children.
    Hence the idea to get started right away, and the interest in learning resources that might be suitable for younger people.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  143. Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi, Many congratulations to yourself and your excellent team on reaching Sigma 5. You have worked extremely hard for a long time to achieve this landmark event.

    Dear Andrea,

    5 sigma — 99.9999% certainty, or more correctly a 0.00001% chance that you have made a faulty observation — is the threshold for an observation to be labeled a scientific discovery. CERN crossed the 5 sigma threshold in 2012.

    Welcome to the parlor of the big boys.
    After the “5”, it’ll be a fun ride.

    Perhaps even a nobel prize!

    Experimental Observations of Nuclear Activity in Deuterated
    Materials Subjected to a Low-Energy Photon Beam

    Summary
    Exposure of highly deuterated materials to a low-energy (nom. 2 MeV) photon beam resulted in nuclear activity
    of both the parent metals of hafnium and erbium and a witness material (molybdenum) mixed with the reactants.
    Gamma spectral analysis of all deuterated materials, ErD2.8+C36D74+Mo and HfD2+C36D74+Mo, showed that nuclear
    processes had occurred as shown by unique gamma signatures. For the deuterated erbium specimens, posttest
    gamma spectra showed evidence of radioisotopes of erbium (163Er and 171Er) and of molybdenum (99Mo and 101Mo)
    and by beta decay, technetium (99mTc and 101Tc). For the deuterated hafnium specimens, posttest gamma spectra
    showed evidence of radioisotopes of hafnium (180mHf and 181Hf) and molybdenum (99Mo and 101Mo), and by beta
    decay, technetium (99mTc and 101Tc). In contrast, when either the hydrogenated or non-gas-loaded erbium or hafnium
    materials were exposed to the gamma flux, the gamma spectra revealed no new isotopes. Neutron activation
    materials showed evidence of thermal and epithermal neutrons. CR–39 solid-state nuclear track detectors showed
    evidence of fast neutrons with energies between 1.4 and 2.5 MeV and several instances of triple tracks, indicating
    >10 MeV neutrons. Further study is required to determine the mechanism causing the nuclear activity.

  161. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Do you especially invite people from industry whose technical integration is possible between E-Cat QX and their existing products?

    Are you going to negotiate technical exclusive information with NDA? Or is the world going to learn the most important techspecs?

    I can imagine that the press has no business with it.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  162. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    1- in part, yes
    2- to get technical exclusive information it is necessary much more than an NDA, for obvious reasons.

    Hello Andrea,

    Will you please confirm that you will achieve Sigma 5 results on or before the day of the presentation scheduled for November 24th and that you are on course for this result now …

    A: We will achieve Sigma 5 before the presentation.
    B: We are not required to achieve Sigma 5 before the presentation.
    C: Both A “&” B.

    We look forward to hearing that Sigma 5 will be achieved in just a few more days before the conference.

    Dear Andrea. I suspect that the source of heat from your ecat QX is either in the form of alpha particles or electromagnetic radiation eg x rays. There are several companies that talk about the possibility of cheap/simple direct conversion of both these forms of radiation into electricity. For example proponents of aneutronuc fusion such as “focus fusion”, “tri alpha”, all the companies following from the work of the late Robert Bussard and his polywell fusion device, helion energy. Some of the main selling points of aneutronic fusion is safety ( no neutrons ) and the ease of direct energy conversion thus removing the need for expensive turbines etc. Similarly “unified gravity” who claim to have a small lenr based reactor with lithium and hydrogen also claim to be working on direct conversion of the alpha particles to electricity. My point is that once you have shown that your Ecat QX works as claimed then there seems to be technologies available to convert the products of the reaction directly to electricity. Good luck with the presentation 24/11

    Dear Andrea:

    I was surprised to hear it has been decided not to invite representatives of at least a few of the main-stream media to your 24th November presentation. Presumably the presentation’s purpose is to reveal some of your most recent innovations to a wider audience. Many of your fans reading this blog have been surprised and disappointed, given the truly astonishing implications of your discoveries, that they are not being discussed in the news media on a daily basis. (For a start it would be nice to read some good news occasionally, interspersed within the regular torrent of bad news.)

    Is there a reason you do not seem to want to bring awareness of your progress to the entire world?

    Rodney Nicholson.

    Dear Andrea,
    From your answer that you do not know if the main stream media will attend the demonstration I conclude you did invite them but that you did not yet received a message that they would come. Is my conclusion right?
    Nevertheless, when they come you still have to wait and see if something is published and, more exiting, if they do how they write about it.
    I hope that it will be a perfect presentation and that you do everything you can to satisfy the curiosity of the attendees. I wish you all the success and hope that you will be able to demonstrate the E-cat QX in the Netherlands as well in the near future.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In case the subject gets discussed, Quarks can react with quarks. And produce a lot of energy.

    Although it will be difficult be to make use of this discovery, God and Nature have made it essentially

    impossible to make it dangerous. Except, of course, by God and Nature!

    Nevertheless, I understand why the scientists who discovered this phenomenon were and should have been concerned.

    The Oil industry uses large amounts of steam to try to extract more oil from their oil wells. Similarly the tar sand industry in Canada uses massive amounts of hot water / steam to extract oil. This is a multi billion dollar industry that would love to use a cheaper source of steam / hot water. Maybe this would be an easier early use for the E-cat technology prior to developing electricity generators. All the best.

    The results of the 1 year 1 MW test seem impressive ! I appreciate that you think the QX will me much better but with COP of about 80 it would appear that the original ECat set up was good enough to be attractive and marketable. All the best

  232. Andrea Rossi

    Gabriel Berra:
    No, because to get that result I had to live 352 days inside it 16 hours per day, from 6 P.M. to 10 A.M of the following day, and two other persons, one engineer and one electrician, had to cover from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M., not to mention when I had to stay for 20 hours and the others of the Team had to reach me in the middle of the night for problems . It was a prototype, not a product, but the experience we made with it has generated the QX. We had strong problems and probably, from what we analyzed after the stop from all the components, it was close to die in short time after the end of the test. It was not ready to be a product, but it was a dam good prototype, by means of which an enormous experience has been made.
    Warm Regards,

  233. Dear Dr. Rossi:

    Did I read the conclusion of the 1MW 1-Year E-Cat Plant Operation Report correctly that with an output target of 6 COP the plant was measured at an average of 80 COP?

    “Daily Coefficient Of Performance (COP) factors ranging from 63 to 139 with an average of around COP 80 for the whole 350 day period.”

    If, “Yes”, this is an astounding result.

    With an output of 20 kW from the Sterling engine you need approx. 60 kW from the E-Cat due to the low efficiency of the Carnot-cycle. This provides you with 40 kWh/h energy through hot “engine cooling water” for free, and your own electricity and gas consumption may be far lower than today.
    The electricity you provide to the grid will first deduct the metering of your own consumption and by this the cost of your own electricity. You may sure end up with no electricity or gas bill.
    The price you may charge for each kWh -day and night- locally supplied clean energy, may in many areas/countries be 5 cents or more.
    Whit an average of 10 kWh supplied every hour in a year, you may charge: 5 cent/kwh x 10 kW x 8.760 h = $ 4.380. With two cars in the household you may exceed the average supply to 15 kWh/h from each. This makes your total sales of electricity to $ 4.380 x 2 x 1,5 = $ 13.400 in addition to free energy supply to your own household.
    I wonder which price A. Rossi may charge for using his Quarks and IP?
    Regards Svein Henrik

  240. Steven N. Karels

    Svein Henrik,

    An interesting idea. While the Rossi powered automobile is parked, it charges its small battery (few kW-Hr) and then the excess is fed into the national power grid. Even if electricity reimbursement rate drops to 2 cents per kW-Hr, a continuously operating car could produce about $170 per year for its owner. And with no carbon footprint. So make the eCat equipped automobile a continuously operating power source — either operating the car or selling electricity on the grid. The income generated from the electricity production could pay for the annual eCat refueling costs. A constant output eCat is likely the optimal configuration for an eCat reactor. Assuming a 40kW eCat reactor would consist of 2,000 20W reactors, assuming 50% efficiency.

    To Steven N. Karels
    Thank you for a praising word. I apologies for the missing first link member on the E-Cat-Sterling-electric-drivetrain link, or Rossi-Sterling-electric-drivetrain that may be more correct.
    I do not see any cooling problems just tasks and possibilities.
    Now with your RSE-car in the garage you just connect it electrically to the grid and let the Rossi-Stirling-electric-drive be in function, and you may bill the grid Company for 20 kWh/h for the electricity delivery when connected. This happens automatically by your new 2-way power meter.
    For cooling you also need to use a twin water-hose-quick-coupling to the cooling water circuit in the engine. (To an additional heat exchanger in the car, solely for this purpose.)
    The cooling Water will supply your home with 40 kWh/h (Due to the negative efficiency of the Carnot cycle.) for free. This may heat your house and your consumption of hot water, melt ice in your yard if necessary, heat your greenhouse and keep your swimming pool at the desired temperature, all for free.

  246. Steven N. Karels

    Svein Henrik,

    A good posting. One possible problem is the cooling of the Stirling Engine – eCat – batteries when parked after a long trip. Assuming a 20kW Stirling output level is needed for continuous driving at high speed, then the onboard batteries really only need to have enough capacity to handle the startup time/response time of the Stirling (and perhaps the eCat startup time), which other posts have mentioned as less than a couple of minutes.

    My 2015 Chevy Volt is known as being an electric car with gasoline backup. But when I drive from New Hampshire to Florida, it acts as a gasoline to electric car. The proposed Stirling implementation is really a Stirling car with battery back-up, powered by an eCat. While the car is parked, perhaps in the hot sun or in an enclosed area (garage), the eCat must be operating at its lowest output setting so the heat may be dissipated. Alternatively, the battery energy storage capacity may be increased sufficiently so the car can fully function over the period of the eCat startup combine with the Stirling startup times.

    Andrea Rossi – Assuming an eCat system capable of supporting a 20kW Stirling engine, what is the worst case startup time for the eCat from a cold start to full operation? 4 minutes?

    Assuming 2 minutes for the Stirling startup time and 4 minutes for the eCat suggests a required battery capacity of 2kW-Hr. Doubling it to handle lifetime degradation suggests a 4 kW-Hr battery is sufficient. If the stationary vehicle can nominally output 20 kW of electric power, then even a fully discharged 4 kW-Hr battery may be recharged in about 12 minutes, assuming it can accommodate that charging rate. So the car would need a means of removing the waste energy from up to 12 minutes of operation, by fans or heat capacity.

  247. Albert Ellul

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    November is here and another year of progress is coming to an end. Hopefully this month will be a milestone in more ways than one; sigma 5 will most probably be reached, and the live demo of the E-Cat QX will show the world your ‘new fire’ in action.

    My wish is to see a roll out of the E-Cat QX selling like hot cakes all around the world.

  248. Andrea Rossi

    Albert Ellul:
    Mine wish too.
    Warm Regards,

  249. Svein Henrik

    To K-H Malmqvist and Readers.
    The problems you describe regarding the postponed response from a Stirling engine is not present in a Stirling-electric-drive-train. Such a solution is the most favorable way to use a Sterling engine in a vehicle. This will probably give the lowest weight and highest reliability to the vehicle.
    The Sterling engine doesn’t need to be larger than an average of the energy need in normal drive. Output of 20 kWh for a Tesla are enough. (As A.R. confirm the COP of the E-cat QX)
    The engine is charging the batteries continuously if they are lower than, may be 85-90% of fully loaded. The Stirling engine is running by a constant speed when charging.
    A response delay of 20 second or one minute, by a start now or then, are negligible according to power reserves in the batteries, good for ½ an hour normal drive without charging.

    Best regards Svein Henrik.

    More stuff about stirlings. If the working gas is hydrogen the efficiency will be higher than for helium. However hydrogen has a habit to escape into metal and that is not good for stirling cylinders (but essential for LENR).
    Thus, I think, most of the stirling designs use helium.

    However the manufacturer Inresol uses nitrogen as the working gas and dry lubrication. In case you need to refill the stirling, Inresol has made a nitrogen extractor that extracts nitrogen from the air (air consists of 78% nitrogen).

    My friend that worked for United Stirling in the 80’s said that there was a demand for cars of a max time of 20 sec from you pressed the start button until you could drive away. Due to this very fast heating and different temperature expansion coefficients of the pipes containing the gas and the metal of the cylinder wall, there was an endurance problem.

    Tip: When starting a stirling don’t apply full heat from the beginning.

    Karl-Henrik

    Here’s The Settlement—Getting The License Back Was Rossi’s Top Priority

    In the settlement between Rossi and his US licensee IH, Rossi got the license back together with all E-Cat equipment and materials, while none of the parties will have to pay damages to the other. Getting the license back was his top priority all the time, Rossi explains in this interview.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted that the demo will include a configuration of 3 Ecat reactor units, each, I assume, have a nominal thermal output of 20W.

    1. Will you be monitoring the average input power going to the single controller unit?
    2. Can you command the Ecat ensemble to run at a different output level, say, 3x15W, 3x20W and 3x25W?
    3. Can you individually control each Ecat reactor (i.e., turn it off and on)?
    4. If so to #3, can you run with all three reactors active, two reactors active, 1 reactor active, and all reactors inactive?
    5. Will you be also measuring the fluid flow by periodically collecting and weighing it?

    If you can measure the total input power consumed as you vary reactor output, then it is reasonable to estimate the effective COP of each reactor without directly measuring the power input to a reactor. Thoughts?

  261. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The description of the protocol will be explained at the beginning of the test.

    Abstract
    Hydrogen isotope absorption characteristics of nanoparticles supported by silica, Pd/SiO2 (“PSf1”) and CuNi10/SiO2 (“CNS3”), have been examined. Large absorption energy (1.3±0.3 eV/Pd) with large apparent loading ratio (LM = 2.6) was observed in the initial phase of the D-PSf1#1 run with D2 at room temperature, which could be ascribed to reduction of PdO and hydrogen absorption by Pd nanoparticles. To reduce the NiO in the CNS3 sample, heating up to around 200 °C was necessary. The excess heat was observed in the elevated temperature phases of the runs with CNS3, while no excess heat was observed with PSf1. Taking also into account the experimental results obtained previously for other samples, we can conclude that the excess heat is observed only in the elevated temperature phases of the runs with binary nanocomposite samples, but not with single-element nanoparticles. In the H-CNS3#2 run, the excess heat amounts to 200 eV/Ni or more than 0.9 keV/H without detectable dose rate of hard radiations, which cannot be explained by any chemical process. Index Terms − Silica supported nanoparticles, Cu⋅Ni/SiO2, Pd/SiO2, hydrogen gas absorption, excess power, 200 eV/Ni, 0.9 keV/H.

    While waiting for the E-CatQX heat demonstration, here is some stirling history.
    The modern Stirling Engine was developed by Philips in Holland during the 1950’s and 1960’s. The design was then bought and further developed by United Stirling in Sweden. The smaller stirling was put in an Opel (GM) test car and the bigger one in a Volvo Truck. A friend of mine used to work for United Stirling in the late 70’s early 80’s and has driven the Opel. I talked to him the other day and he remenbered that there was a small delay when hitting the throttle until you got the power, like a turbo lag.
    United Stirling ceased to exist and the small stirling design was sold to Solo Kleinmotoren in Germany. The big stirling was developed to a submarine engine by Kockums.

    Some years ago the swedish company Cleanergy bought back the small stirling design from Solo.

    A couple of former stirling developers at Kockums/SAAB Defence started the company Ripasso and got the license for the bigger Stirling for non military applications.

    Of course there are many other manufacturers for smaller stirlings as has been mentioned in the blog.

    Best Regards,

  273. Hi Andrea, near where I live in Australia there has been a 150 MW coal fired power station that has recently been shut down and further away a 2 GW coal fired power station shut down. Both these assetskoomi have all the boilers , turbines , transformers and all other infrastructure already in place yet are both close to worthless due to the view on coal here in Australia. My question is such – would the Ecat be able to be used to retro fit disused coal powered power plants ? If so wouldn’t these be 2 examples of being able to purchase potentially very valuable assets for next to nothing and 1) make a large profit selling electricity 2) end all speculation on your technology 3) provide a great service to the environment and local business prior to expanding internationally. Surely this situation is not unique to Australia. All the best

    Dear Andrea,
    It seems that, over the past year, you’ve made a fair number of improvements in the area of E-Cat control. I realize your current plans are to build assemblies of small E-Cats (the Quark) to give you scaleability for very large systems, but I was wondering if there is anything in what you’ve learned during the past year that could be applied towards revisiting (from a controllability and COP point of view) larger E-Cat devices– for instance, 100W or 1KW devices?

    Abstract. At the interaction of hydrogen with a number of metals, including Nickel, are observed not only mechanical and chemical changes, but also such extraordinary phenomena as the anomalously large heat generation and the change in isotopic and elemental composition. An overview of experiments that explore these phenomena is presented. Also the results of analysis of the isotopic and elemental composition of the fuel and substances near the active zone of nickel-hydrogen reactors before and after work with the production of excess energy to 790 MJ are presented. Reliable changes in the isotopic composition of nickel and lithium are not detected. A significant increase in the concentration of impurities of a number of nuclides discovered, not only in fuel but also in structural elements adjacent to the active zones of reactors.

    11. CONCLUSION Numerous experiments conducted in different laboratories, confirm the allocation in Nickel-hydrogen systems, thermal energy, many times exceeding the heat dissipation possible in chemical processes. The level of accumulated empirical knowledge in this area allows us to reflect on the transition from experimental models to a variety of practical applications, extremely efficient and environmentally friendly technologies. In the course of processes in nickel-hydrogen systems, the changes of the elemental and isotopic composition of matter are detected. This indicates that an anomalously high heat generation in these systems is probably related to transformations at the nuclear level. The fact that such transformations occur at very low nuclear standards, temperatures, and the lack of hard nuclear radiations and radioactivity, indicates the need to look for unusual approaches to explain the detected effects. The problem is that the explanation is not confined to finding ways of overcoming the Coulomb barrier to the close approach and merging of the nuclei [13]. The most mysterious is the absence (or very small intensity) of nuclear radiation in the process of cold transmutations and education only isotopes that do not exhibit radioactivity. 1. The isotopic and elemental composition of the substance in four nickel-hydrogen reactors of various designs with an excess energy output from 100 to 790 MJ has been analyzed. Not only the changes in fuel, but also the materials adjacent to the active zone have been investigated. In addition, the composition of the substance accumulating in the cavity of the reactor near the active zone has been studied. 2. There were no significant changes in the isotopic composition of nickel and lithium, except for the analysis of the fuel of the AP2 reactor at Uppsala University (Sweden). 3. A significant increase in the concentration of impurities of a number of nuclides has been detected not only in fuel, but also in structural elements adjacent to the active zones of the reactors. In addition to tungsten and rhenium, the appearance of which can be explained by migration from the heater coil, the content of boron increased greatly, as well as nuclides with atomic masses of 43-53, 64-83, 107-130, 198-208. 4. In the substance that was found in the cavity of the reactor near the active zone, in addition to tungsten, a lot of iron, sodium, potassium, nickel, silicon, calcium, scandium and a number of other elements accumulated.

  285. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    I think you’re better off with an open flow of ambient air, possibly supplemented by vapor or steam to achieve better reception of the IR spectrum.

    The problem of cooling, combined with the simultaneous heating and cooling of one and the same mass of gases, makes it difficult, heavy and expensive to develop large powers with stirling machines.

    I think it’s best to start the heating only after the compression phase, which may even be cooled by atomizing cold water. During the compression phase I would isolate the heat source. Or make the heat exchanger as small as possible, and during the heated expansion I would make the surface as big as possible. Hence my previous suggestion to work with plungers that can be pushed very quickly into the medium to be heated, altered with cavities of the same volume.

    This will be a multi-million R & D project. Also to material properties and durability. I will not build a working prototype in my basement.

    I do not think there is any similarity already. We could only develop it with electrical heating elements, apart from the E-Cat QX. But a heavy electric, thermal engine, with a return of 30% seems to me a stupid invention.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  287. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea
    As your demonstration now are approaching and you have expressed interest in Stirling engines, why not invite two or three of the most interesting manufacturers to this event?
    The Sterling engines on the marked today are not designed for a vehicle marked. They are far too heavy. Engines for use in airplanes or for use in ship/powerplants, have a total different power/weight ratio.
    It may be possible to produce a Sterling engine for vehicle marked to ¼ of the weight of the units of today. The cost of the material may be significantly higher, but the production processes may not be more expensive. A higher price will quickly be saved through the operating expenses.
    The Sterling engine with a generator is, due to its low noise and very small vibrations, superb in combination with the possibilities of energy storage in batteries to suit all types of vehicles.
    Being on your presentation may surely be triggering of the creativity to a Sterling engine designer.
    If the room space is limited, why not extend the demonstration with a day 2, specially for OEM’s, also in other fields where you see possibilities?
    The OEM’s may then work in parallel with your work for the automated production of the QX and a far larger marked will then be ready for the “kittens” when born.
    All the best for an important event within the next 30 days! Regards: Svein Henrik.

  288. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Sorry, but we are making an R&D on the Stirling engines that is too premature for what you say.
    The scope of the demo is to introduce the E-Cat QX as a heat maker, not to show particular applications that at the moment are not ready.

  304. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea
    I agree in your answer to K. Wandewalle. October 28.
    I also believe a free piston Stirling engine may be the best solution for electricity production.
    It contains only one moveable part. It is hermetically sealed, as a refrigeration compressor.
    This may grant a sigma 5 solution for the total unit, and minimal need for maintenance.
    I suppose the most efficient, cheapest and most secure heat exchanger may be constructed as a bloc of metal with the necessary micro tubes for the gas and cylinders that matches the QX. The less material in the bloc, the better performance. There may be more than 20 separate ways to shape such a heat exchanger and to customize it to the QX and an efficient fabrication. These will function without need for steam or hot liquid for transition of the heat from the QX to the gas in the engine.

    Mankind’s need for electricity varies a lot. A Stirling engine may cover the need from less than 1 kW to the largest plants for aluminum production. The best price for electricity may be in the smaller part of the marked and for use in areas without a grid. Here is it probably vise to start the marketing.
    Vehicles are also a high price part of the marked. As pointed earlier, the average need of energy for driving a car is low.
    Fitted with a Stirling generator at 20 kW, and a battery of 10% of today’s size, will give a Tesla infinity mileage and heat or AC to the cabin. If the cars low point of gravity may be kept it may function equivalent to today’s models. Cars are not the most important marked, but probably the part that will give you most attention in a brief time.
    A question at the end: When will we be informed of the date of the presentation?
    Best regards Svein Henrik.

  305. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Thank you for your insight.

    Perhaps a small SCO2 (Super-critical Carbon Dioxide) engine may be a candidate. See “The Mighty Mite” article, below.

    http://www.supercritical.tech/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Mechanial-Engineering-SuperCritical-CO2-Overview-by-Steven-Wright.pdf

    Note: The typo “Mechanial” instead of Mechanical is actually the correct link address.

    On a larger scale, hundreds of Megawatts of electricity can and will be produced.

    But at a smaller scale, about 40-80 kW mechanical and/or electrical power could be produced.

    Miniaturizing a SCO2 engine to approx. 40+ kW should be possible. As usual, the Design Size, Weight and Power (SWAP) details

    have to be worked out. (” It’s only an Engineering problem. ” 😀 )

    Dear Andrea and blog readers,
    Steam engines are not relevant as E-cat engines for the present, but maybe in the future.
    In 1974 SAAB in Sweden made a 250 HP 9 cylinder steam engine prototype that could be fit in a car. http://www.saabhistory.com/2008/04/04/the-nine-cylinder-saab-steam-engine/
    If Leonardocorp just puts together an E-CatQX driven Stirling engine with a generator as a prototype, maybe the development of steam engines will start again in the future.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,
    Can you provide us with the precise dimensions, optimal surface temperature and heat conductivity, radiant power, and electrical connections of the E-Cat QX?

    Dear Andrea,
    Speaking of Jay Leno’s cars, he has a nice video of his 1925 Doble Series E Steam Car– Lots of good high-pressure-steam discussion in the video: 850 degree (Fahrenheit, I assume) 1000 PSI steam, closed system, 3000 degree firebox, steam whistle (it has to have one of those!). Link:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACO-HXvrRz8

    Also, on the subject of steam cars, ExtremeTech has an article: “Are steam cars poised for an epic comeback?”:

    Dear Dottore Rossi

    Can many of Ecat-QX be mounted in one plane to an IR panel?
    That will increase efficiency of a panel and since there is no moving part can be produced quicker and last longer then and is installed simpler then engine or plumbing requiring technology.
    If Ecat-QX is made transparent for light an additional layer of light controlling foil can be added similar to LCD screen to regulate light emission from 0 to 100%. Please consider this option.

    Best regards

  317. Andrea Rossi

    Branivoj:
    I will consider it.

    Dear Andrea,

    the considerations of Karl-Henrik Malmqvist are very important and interesting.
    With standard heat sources, by combustion, you must necessarily put in fresh and cold air and put out warm exaust gases. THis is a waste, because this waste head does not flow through the stirling engine. ECat QX does not have this problem. If you isolate very well the heat pad of a stirling engine, in contact with an ECat, instead of wasting heat heating the fresh air getting in and wasting heat putting out the warm exaust gases, the only way for the heat to go out is through the stirling engine, thus producing electricity… This mean that an ecat driven stirling engine, if properly isolated, should have much more efficiency… With an ecat driven turbine you must follow the classical working of putting in hot fluid and wasting the heat with warm output gas…

    Think on it: just construct a very well insulated box in which the ecat and the hot side of the stirling engine are coupled and isolated. The heat can only flow through the stirling engine, producing electricity and then the waste heat that flow toward the cold side of the stirling engine can be used for other things, like industrial processes or ambient heating… But now all the heat produced by the ecat has flow through the stirling engine, and not just a portion, producing electricity… In a standard carnot cycle turbine or in a stirling engine with a standard heat source this is not possible: a portion of the heat is always wasted to heat the fresh inlet cold air and in the warm residual fumes…

    Regards, Marco

    Dear Andrea,
    Reading your blog, it seems you are moving in the direction of domestic heating and electricity production.
    I believe that REMEHA.NL would be an interesting partner. They make domestic heating and warm water boilers. The eVita boiler generates max. 25 kW of heat and additionally 1kW electrical power using a maintenance free Stirling motor/generator combination. I am not sure if you were able to interest them in a combination with a E-cat QX. If not, I would be willing to try for you.

  324. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    In an internal combustion engine about 30% of the energy in the fuel disappears with the hot exhausts.
    For an external combustion engine like the stirling the percentage of the heat disappearing with the exhaust should be of the same magnitude.

    However, with an E-CatQX driven stirling there is no exhaust and therefor no exhaust heat dissipation!
    Thus an E-CatQX driven stirling has a much higher efficiency than a stirling driven by natural gas!

    A natural gas driven turbine has a higher efficiency than a natural gas driven stirling.

    An E-CatQX driven turbine would have the same efficiency as a gas driven turbine with a lot of heat going out with the hot exhaust/air.

    Conclusion: An E-CatQX fueled stirling should have a higher efficiency than an E-CatQX fueled turbine!!

    For electricity production, go with the stirling. For a combined electricity/heat production you could still use a turbine if you take care of the energy in the hot “exhaust” air.

    Regarding cars, all car manufacturers are looking for electrification with batteries. What they want is a “range extender” (series hybrid) that is a compact engine-generator not bigger than an ordinary combustion engine that charges the batteries. The power of this engine-generator can be much smaller than an ordinary engine.

    The range extender in BMW i3 REx is 25 kW. Renault Kangoo has a version with a 5 kW fuel cell range extender. So there is a huge demand for this size of engine-generator sets.

    Electric cars in cold weather will have a much shorter range because a big percentage of the battery power is used for heating the air inside the car. Here is a big opportunity for a simple 5kW E-CatQX air heater. This product could be in every electrical car.

    Is your interest in coupling the Ecat-Qx with a Sterling Engine based on safety certification for the small or household market? Steam systems require certification, testing and periodic retesting of the pressure vessels I can’t imagine having one in every home. However an Ecat-Qx providing heat to the home for climate control and hot water coupled with a sterling engine and generator for electrical power contained in a cute little dog house out back is something we’ll all want.

    Good luck and thank you.

  354. Dear Andrea – you have mentioned using the seebeck effect which is only 5-8% efficient. Other generators mentioned are bulky, expensive and in the order of 25% efficient – eg the stirling engine. You have mentioned previously that 0-50% of the ecat QX ‘s energy can be produced in the form of light energy. “Brilliantlightpower” talk about using silicon photovoltaic cells at a light intensity of 300 x natural sunlight ( ie 300 Kw of light energy per 1 metre square of silicon solar cells). At a more conservative 100x Suns light intensity sunlight, ( 100 Kw / metre square), tge I internet suggests it’s possible to rely on passive cooling ( ceramic fins on back of cells ). Silicon cells convert at 20% efficiency = 10% overall efficiency if 50% of the ecat QX’s energy is on the form of light. I think This would be much cheaper and smaller than the heat engines you are looking at. Brilliant light power were originally planning to use newer multijunction photovoltaic cells that are 40% efficient at 3000x suns intensity but decided it would be easier to go with the more tried and proven silicon cell technology at lower intensity, with easier cooling, lower risk and lower cost. You may not be interested in going down the path of converting light energy from the ECat QX to electrical energy using photovoltaic cells but I thought I would at least mention it as a posdibilty considering you mentioned the seebeck effect. All the best Andrea !

    Dear Andrea.
    I do agree with Aillas Troice in his suggestion, but to make a quick demo of QX producing electricity may be important. The Qnergy’s PCK-80 seems to me to be a perfect solution for this task. This will be a Sterlig-Rossi Energy Mashine.
    I will also again advocate for direct use of the heat: A stove directly heated by QX in the oven and in the hotplates. This will reduce the need in a home for a high installed electricity capacity. The different part of such a stove may only be used less than one hour each day on high effect, the QX may then last in the live-time of the device. A replacement of elements seems thereby unnecessary. LED-lights and electronic devises are easy to gratify. The PCK-80 will then easily fulfill the need in a home for electricity, heating rooms and all needs for hot and warm water.

  368. Aillas Troice

    @Fred
    No, I agree wholeheartedly that all sorts of ecat-powered engines are extremely important. I just don’t see why the world has to wait for Dr. Rossi and his small team to develop them. Once you have a power source, coupling it with an engine is a trivial engineering task. It’s just a matter of man-hours and R&D capital. Dr. Rossi has struck gold – that doesn’t mean he has to do the actual digging all by himself. Others can do the heavy lifting much more quickly and efficiently, while he can focus on the really complex stuff for which only he is qualified, i.e. the fundamentals of the Rossi process.

  369. Fred

    @Aillas Troice:
    You are forgetting that an engine fueled by the E-Cat is of paramount importance.
    Fred

  370. Aillas Troice

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Please allow me to make a humble suggestion.

    The greatest value of your technology is the Rossi process itself, the actual means of generating energy by means of completely new physics. It is that process that you should get to market as soon as possible. But you seem to be devoting a great deal of time to trivial matters (like coupling the Rossi energy generator with an engine). These are mundane engineering tasks that will be done much more quickly and effectively by the international scientific/engineering community once you have licensed the Rossi process.

    What you are doing now is akin to having invented a magic chemical formula that cures all cancer – but instead if selling that formula to the highest bidder to get it to market as soon as possible (and start earning billions in license payments), you insist on building your own hospitals and making your own syringes (all with the very limited financial and engineering resources available to you) before patients can be treated with the magic formula.

    You have already done by far the most important bit of work. You have discovered and perfected the Rossi process. Now let others take it further, because surely millions of engineers working for the leading international companies (who are ready to spend hundreds of billions on the necessary R&D) will do a better job of it than you and the 20-30 staff you have at your disposal. In the meantime, you will be free to focus on perfecting the Rossi process, which is your most valuable area of expertise – instead of wasting your time on menial work (like looking for Stirling engine suppliers) that any student can do.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

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

    But may be I am totally off base here.

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

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

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

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

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

    Could this be an ally for you to court?

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

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

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

    I think Baxi also have a residential scale unit.

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

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

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

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

    Food for future consideration perhaps…

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

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

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

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

    We must serve, not win.

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

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

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

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

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

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

  454. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

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

    Best wishes,

    Good Day Andrea:

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

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

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

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

    The engine is a closed system that uses heat from liquid oxygen and Diesel oil, so that it can run under water without need of combustion air.
    The manufacturer states that it can use any heat source, so it is a perfect match for the E-Cat QX, I suppose.

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

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

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

  500. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

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

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

  503. Hi Andrea,
    Have you ever considered magnetohydrodynamic generators as a way of converting the thermal energy your e-cats produce into electricity. If not it may be worth looking into it. There are plenty of power point presentations available via google on MHD generators to get you started ( if you are interested ). All the best Andrea !

    I still hold a patent that the USPTO allowed me in the year 1998, in which I pumped lead in a chemical thermolytic reactor ( Google Rossi Dellorfano US Patent ) to turn carbonaceous wastes into fuel; at those times this invention would have been gold!
    Thank you for the information,

  506. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

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

    Colin Watters:
    We do not sell reactors to make experiments or replications. All the replications have been made by scientists that have reproduced the apparatus described in my patent and made R&D with it, completely independent from us.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Still about the replication made by the Professors of Uppsala: you said you can’t comment before they publish a report, but do you know the results of their trial to replicate the results of Lugano by themselves in a laboratory of the University of Uppsala?
    Thank you if you can answer

  515. Andrea Rossi

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

  516. Viking

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

  517. Andrea Rossi

    Viking:
    I will be able to answer only after I will have read a report about this.
    Warm Regards,

  518. Mick Neren

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

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

  523. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- the number of reactors/area
    2- yes
    3- no, is checked the area

    6- yes

    Dear Andrea,

    If you have an E-Cat plant consisting of thousands of E-Cat QX reactors, will each reactor need to be replaced every year, and if so, will they all have to replaced at the same time (requiring the shutdown of the plant)?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  526. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, the modularity allows a substitution per area, maintaining the full power in operation if the power is redundant in proportion.
    Warm Regards,

  527. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    You have been very positive about the tests of the E-cat QX up and until Thursday. Can you confirm that the system has now succeded for the 5 sigma tests and is ready to conquer the world? Can we congratulate you and your team?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  529. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

    Barry

  534. Andrea Rossi

    Barry Chaiken:
    As politically uncorrect as it might seem, I agree with him, because most of the other Countries were just cheating on this issue, pretending to change everything to change nothing and getting strong competitivity against the USA, while the United States had serious damages in terms of loss of jobs. Besides: coal can be used with respect for the environment, provided proper BACT are adopted.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A previous post had mentioned 1100 days and you did correct it. My post had estimated 1200 days and did not correct it. 3 years contains about 1100 to 1200 days. That is where the 3 years came from.

    So, for the record, how long have the reactors been running without refueling?

  543. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Sorry, but I did not say that it worked continuously for 3 years. There have been interruptions, the last refueling has been made one year ago.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  544. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are saying that the reactor(s) being tested have been running essentially continuously for over 3 years without refueling? If so, is the published one year refueling time just a Management position, only done to assure end-of-fuel does not occur?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

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

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

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

  561. Andrea Rossi

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

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

Did you already obtain interesting data? Besides: will these data help also the E-Cat QX?

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

    Dear Anonymous,

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

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

    Sincerely,
    A Long Time Reader Of The JONP

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

    When you hear about natural disasters (and live through them in Miami), do you ever think about how E-Cat technology could be used to help people affected by them? If so, how would you like to see E-Cats used in those situations?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland:
    Honestly, I think the E-Cat will not make any difference in those dramatic, but exceptional and short timed situations. The market offers any kind of back up generators of electricity and heat and the difference of efficiency is a very minor issue in those situations: I think nobody gives a damn if during or in the aftermath of a hurricane or an earthquake the electricity or the heat generated by a mobile apparatus costs less.

    Dont know if you have seen this from Peter Gluck

    Monday, September 25, 2017
    Kind request for an opened question

    My dear friends,

    I am old and very ill and I want to take some conclusions of my life.

    The most important question I know is if cold fusion has become a technology or not.

    Years ago in a phone conversation with Arthur C. Clark, who called me from Sri Lanka I have predicted that the cold fusion will be a useful source of energy that is a technology.
    Today I have no idea if I was right or not.

    It depends first on Andrea Rossi. If Andrea has indeed a working technology then I was right. If not then we have to wait. I don’t know who has the absolute correct answer. Please convey this to Andrea and I am waiting he should tell that to our mentor and friend, A.C. Clark, genius of the first rank, I told the truth or not. This is the most important question for me. Andrea and others can inform people and give any details and publish them in my blog Ego-out which is now administered by my blog associate Georgina and who takes care of my intellectual inheritance.

    I can see only with my left eye and I cannot read and cannot write. I am very sorry but my career has ended. Please help me. My daughter will inform me about the situation.

    Thank you,
    Peter

  617. Andrea Rossi

    Sam:

    I am very sorry for what happened to his eyes and I strongly hope that he can have the possibility to improve his view. I strongly hope.
    As for what concerns the status of my technology, I gave and am giving all the possible information about our working technology here and in our website
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    Peter has direct access to me and he does not need to send for me by anybody: he can contact me personally when he wants: I will be delighted to give him first hand news. I sent to him many emails in the last four months, also for personal communications.
    Please forward him my best wishes and my strong appreciation for his intellectual honesty.

    Dear Andrea,

    I think the new development with the E-cat producing electricity is very interesting.
    I understand it is easier to produce heat than electricity with the E-cat, but the potential with producing electricity is of cource mind blowing.
    A) Have you reached a point where it is meaningful to produce electricity?
    I remember you said you could produce small amounts of electricity directly from the E-cat before.
    B) Is producing electricity directly something you still try to achive?
    C) Is your new partner most interested in producing heat or electricity or both?

    Kind regards,

    Dear Andrea, Dear all,

    the ECat QX can emit energy in three forms, as far as i understand: heat, electricity and light.

    Obviously electricity does not need conversion, apart (A/D)C/(A/D)C conversion.

    Heat requires the Carnot cycle.

    Light? Photovoltaic panel! This can be the third mean…

    Obviously current Carnot cycle has higher efficiency than current Photovoltaic (and as Andrea said in the past also better yield than the ECat QX itself when used to produce electricity), so the only reason i see to have all three form of energy, is that driving the ECat QX to emit a certain mix of energies is the best in terms of COP and/or stability, and it’s best not forcing the ECat to emit only heat or only light or only electricity…

    Am I right?

    Regards,
    Marco.

    Hello Andrea,

    We live in the country, and we have a mamma bear that nests in our backyard on the river shoreline. Your anecdote was particularly interesting in that light. Your reply correlates with 2 kings 2:23-24, quoted below:

    As he was going along the way, some young boys came out from the city and began to jeer at him, and they kept saying to him: “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” 24 Finally he turned around and looked at them and cursed them in the name of Jehovah. Then two she-bears came out of the forest and tore 42 of the children to pieces. 25 He kept going from there to Mount Carʹmel, and from there he returned to Sa·marʹi·a.

    https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/nwt/books/2-kings/2/

    So then, your reply was in context with the bible, but it’s nice to have proof from the scriptures.

    Question of the Day …
    Re: September 21 … “Yes. It has been great, but with necessity of some improvements.”

    Q1: Will the improvements be completed before the presentation?
    Q2: Are the improvements for 1) Manufacturing; 2) Functionality; 3) Sigma 5; 4) All of the above.
    Q3: Your partner expresses interest in making electricity. Will this be directly from the 1) QuarkX or using the 2) Carnot cycle?

    Looking forward very much to your upcoming presentation.

    Tom

    ps: I hope your partner is ABB, it would be exciting.

    HI, want to let ya know that gravity is impossible by mass that produces gravity itself, so the bigger mass, the bigger gravity that holds us; the smaller mass, the smaller gravity. But that means small and big mass does have gravity that holds small mass within a big mass. Each different position of mass is a battle if big to small, except the same level of two, so it cancels out gravity. But what about the middle of mass, the empty space, there is energy in empty space. So, it is same as magnet that produces gravity which it is a pressure field from Aether, so it can’t be all elements because within element there is a process like magnet with electricity, which both combine to density, well, magnet as energy as potential energy, and electricity as mass-energy, like current. Not all mass is a gravity that pulls or push unless it is enough magnet-density to produce the felt of energy which it is pushed or pull.

    So, Aether is low density, mass is high density, depends the density of mass, if high enough, then pressure from Aether outward from a high density of mass can’t be felt, unless it is a resonate, the closest to Aether, zero density or very low density.

    Like a feather is a density of solid, an air is a density of a gas, so solid is higher density than gas. Yet air can push and repel air, because that high density is very close to low density, and that low density is many in space that causes a push or pulls to higher density. Everywhere that meets specific place.

    So, the gravity that can’t hold the air because it is a low density of gravity from earth that pull gravity to holds us, so air should except gravity since it is weaker in further distance from a surface of the earth, that match law of science. Not opposite. So, there must be a dome that holds air that matches the high density of energy which can be felt, which if a magnet is big enough, we can feel the pressure, right. The movies and assume the real life of space that you feel is fake from NASA and do not match the reality of real science, which you provide better science than mainstream science, which they ignore and lie. If lie about science, so can lie about physical reality.

    So, it is not gravity, but pressure, but pressure can be felt outward at the macro level if it is a resonate, a low density that can go thru a tunnel to macro level to high density and still can be felt. So, it has to be closest or at exactly in balance that matches law of balance, or Newton’s law, the 3rd law for motion. I am sure ya think gravity is a mistake in your mind when you thought about it since not make sense? I got the idea from Flat Earth, so it expands science in my mind, so science expands in your mind that you create QRT that is better than mainstream QT. It is about density, heat means higher density as there is more current; cold means lower density as there is more potential, well, there is a ratio of potential and mass-energy. So, there are two things: low density to high density. So, not need gravity, it is just electricity and aether in a ratio and balance for everything.

    Plus Gravity does depend on mass that holds us, so if there is no big gravity, then we float up, so the low density can pull up higher density, which it is illogical since high density is stronger than low density. So, the magnet that produces gravity-like an energy that holds us, so it is on a side that is high density that pulls Aether from low density, as it travels as it is still a low density, without canceling out from high density that reduces Aether, like a current. A tunnel of low density with a side that is high density, the mass. It does match a ring, the center is empty, and the outer ring is a mass. I am sure inner edge of the ring to outer edge of the ring is important for energy and mass. I am sure everything in an atom is important for what makes an atom. So, I guess Aether can be felt if it is high density from a magnet, or can’t because low density will go thru high density. Ya can explain in a book if ya did for how pressure-energy that is invisible that can cause push and pull the mass that is visible. Since mass is higher density as we can see and weight, to invisible which has no weight and can’t be see-thru high degree microscope.

    So, can update so not include gravity, but pressure and they are looking for gravity like gravity is a mass, but the magnet that produces energy that pressures you, so it is not a mass, but aether. So, mainstream rejects Aether to the mass, for technology and everything.

    So, can ya explain on website what is different between centripetal acceleration and Helical trajectory that is an emission from an electron as photon. There is two dynamic motion, but both are different right, so Helical is expanding in vertical in series as it goes horizontal motion. So, it is a series of motion. Two motion, forward motion from a source that pushes, and Aether motion that pushes upward vertical, as Aether get higher in density so it pushes further in vertical at each series of horizontal motion. So, where Helical come from? Does it come from motion of source that is moving, so the forward motion from source will turn as a wave or there is an expand and contract of source so the mass narrow and expand. Can put a picture for centripetal acceleration, like ya did for Helical trajectory.

    I was thinking there is two source of helical motion that is if source is moving up and down, so forward motion from source move up and down as a wave. Or if source as static is contracting, then to starting diameter, so not expanding, so photons do create a wave. But I might be wrong because it is the wrong source, so can’t be an electron that contract to starting diameter, then contract again, so is there any source in an atom that does that?? Any source in an atom that can move up and down? It is just static, if there is motion, then the motion is union of all source within an atom, so they all move in a union, so there is no visual wave or anything, but horizontal, because it is smooth. Or curve if all source within atom moves in a curve.

    You mention anti-particle, but it is not anti, but aether particle since it is from Aether as energy that causes push and pulls that cause visual motion of mass to move. Mass particle vs. Aether particle. So, Anti is negative mass, from the aether, so not an imaginary number, but a negative real number. It would be better than imaginary as not real unless you are God that image can be caused to be real.

    Hi Mr Rossi,

    do you intend to inform the public (us) as soon as you have reached 5 Sigma? Or do you have a different strategy?

    Warm regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congratulations to you following the outcome of the litigation which was sensibly resolved by an out of court agreement. I trust that you are satisfied with the outcome. I would be happy to know that you are happy.

    Take good care of your health and your Quark-X too.

    Forward to that day when we will all be able to purchase a Quark-X for our industrial, commercial and domestic needs.

    Hugh,

    A Christian does forgive his enemies but he is not called to be stupid. Not inviting your enemies to the demonstration is not a sign of lack of forgiveness, only a sign of wisdom. Why rub Andrea’s success in the face of those that opposed and ridiculed him. To seek such revenge would be truly non-Christian.

  670. Davina

    Dr Rossi,

    Question please:

    Q: will the demonstration benefit the media interest in LENR?

    or will this demonstration be intended for the scientific
    community to draw its own conclusions, to be further
    discussed on internet boards to make determinations.

    Best Regards,

    Davina

  671. Andrea Rossi

    Davina:
    None of both.
    It is intended to realize my will to present the E-Cat QX working. I think it is interesting.
    Before her introduction in the market, better take these demos minimalistically. We will not be able to give any information useful to the competition before being ready to make a mass production, which means before we will be able to make pointless the competition.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  672. Hugh Maguire

    Dear Readers:
    I asked Rossi by email why he does not pardon his enemies and invite them to the presentation of the E-Cat QX: I told him as a Christian he has the duty to pardon and maybe also to disclose confidential data so that his competitors could at last do something working.
    Here is what he answered:

    “An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. ‘What majestic trees!
    What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals: behold, all this from Evolution!’, he said to himself.

    As he was walking along side the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He
    turned to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him.

    He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and
    saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder
    again and the bear was even closer. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over
    to pick himself up but saw the bear right on him, reaching for him with
    his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant the atheist cried out: ‘Oh My God!’

    Time stopped, the bear froze and the forest was silent.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky: ‘You
    deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don’t exist,
    and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this
    predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?’

    The atheist looked directly into the light, ‘It would be hypocritical of
    me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you
    could make the BEAR a Christian?’

    ‘Very well’, said the voice. The light went out, and the forest resumed.

    He looked at the bear and the bear dropped his right paw, brought both
    paws together and bowed his head and spoke these words:

    ‘Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty
    through Christ our Lord, Amen.’ “

    Hugh Maguire:
    That WAS confidential!

    Rodney Nicholson:
    This issue does not depend on me.

    Dear Andrea,

    I would guess that the presentation doesn’t just depend on when you are ready, but on the schedules of the few select invited guests. Right?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. Given that we are now within 30 to 60 days of the demonstration, may I assume that the procedures, methodologies and reporting parameters are well defined?
    2. When you say you will “give input power”, will this be averaged power? If so, over what period of time will you be averaging, milliseconds, seconds, hours?
    3. Will an oscope capture of the input power going to the controller be made available?
    4. Will data associated with the output power determination be made available — temperature change, mass flow rate. If so, over what resolution of time?
    5. Will calibration data of measurement devices be made available?

  680. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The information about the test will be given just before the test itself.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  681. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, do you think that among the data you will give at the end of the presentation there will also be the values of input power, output power and COP?

    Best Regards,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With my over 45 years of experience in engineering and product development, it is not unusual to see a presentation slip to the right. If you complete the demonstration within this calendar year, you will have accomplished a major event. Best wishes. My advice – don’t present until you are 100% ready. You have one chance to make a good impression.

    Dear Andrea,

    Kindly allow me one more nugget.

    “Every coal fired generator in Australia was built, not just partially subsidised, entirely with taxpayer funds.

    When they were privatised, many were given state owned coal mines with contract prices way below market, effectively a further subsidy.

    Then there are the health costs.”

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you an ardent follower of solar technologies and energy technologies in general? Perhaps in that case you know that the cheapest ordinary power you can buy in the US today is natural gas at 5-6 cents per kWh, correct?

    Here are some recent solar prices from new installations/auctions around the world — some subsidized, others not:

    Gobi Desert: 1 GW solar plant, 6 c/kWh
    Palo Alto: 3.6 c/kWh with subsidies, 5.1 c/kWh with no subsidies
    India: Rewa Ultra Mega Solar, 4.5 c/kWh, no subsidies
    Mexico: Average bid 5.1 c/kWh, lowest bid 3.5 c/kWh by Enel (an Italian company), unsubsidized
    Chile: 5.1 c/kWh average bid, lowest bid 2.91 c/kWh (in August 2016, the cheapest unsubsidized contract for electricity of ANY SORT, EVER!)
    Then, in September 2016 Dubai had a 1.3 GW plant for 2.42 c/kWh; less than half the price of natural gas in the US; dramatically lower than natural gas in Middle East or Africa; four companies came out with bids of less than 3 cents per kWh!

    As you know, there are 1.3 billion people without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and the cheapest energy in the future will be in the sunny parts of the world. This will have major geopolitical ramifications, whether people choose to believe in or not.

    A close friend of mine is dying of cancer this month, at age 67. He quoted to me the verse found at Luke 12:20. His exact worlds were “I have more money than time.” I am worried about you. Is it better to give your work as a gift to the world, or to take it to the grave with you? Tesla took his work to the grave. Will you continue to wait, refine, R&D, and partner, until the day you die? They will burn your papers at your funeral, and toast their success.

    The wealthy rulers of this world have put a cork in the bottle of your genie, and thrown it out to sea.

    Can you explain to me why I am wrong to feel this way?

    Dr. Rossi: Below find an email exchange with Frankie Fruge President of Cyclone Power asking if they are interested in mating their Cyclone engines with your E-Cat. She responded saying she contacted you and you did not respond. She apparently thinks it is a good idea. Is there a reason you do not want to pursue this obvious benefit for both companies?

    Dear Bernie,

    Yes it is and I have contacted them in the past as we are the only real game in town to use this. They have not responded. I told them to bring it here and we will run the Cyclone engine on it.

    People are more interested in advertising and getting money. We went down the wrong trail with the public company that has cost us 60% of all of our income and the rest on product, no advertising and no real money.

    I am in the process of trying to change that as we need those two things to get the product into production.

    Dear Andrea
    Waiting for the October ‘demonstration’ (do you have a date?) I was thinking on how can be a huge E-Cat based Power Plant.
    Lets imagine that you are ready for the industrialization and someone ask you for a 1GW Electrical output Plant; based on your actual knowledge how you imagine it will be structured.
    Will it be a huge concentration of Quarks that generates heat and 1-3 big turbines, or maybe an array of many 1MW plant, or something different.

  725. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    That YouTube on using solar photovoltaics to pump water uphill into a large holding area and then using it as a hydroelectric plant to generate electricity – what a truly great idea. Substitute an eCat to continuously provide power to pump the water to a large area when the demand is low and they supplement the electrical power during the peak load times. You might ask your applications team to run an analysis to see if it makes economic sense. Probably not if you are in an area where land is expensive.

    In the first release of information about the ECAT=Qx, you showed the optical emission from the device (in low resolution). In the upcoming October demonstration, will you demonstrate optical emission as well as making optical measurements of the spectra, wavelengths, output power, emission patterns etc. Good luck on the demonstration and future industrialization.

    I respect your opinions greatly, but you and others are very mistaken about the current cost of solar generation. The current cost of unsubsidized solar generation is between 35 and 55 dollars per MWh. Please see this article for further information regarding the current cost of just about all types of energy generation modalities.

    Please have a look at this article. “https://cleantechnica.com/2017/05/24/tucson-utility-inks-deal-solar-power-costs-less-3-cents-per-kilowatt-hour/”

    Dear Andrea.
    Steven N. Karels is correct in pointing that solar energy is totally dependent of a storage facility.
    The price of the storing devices must be added to cost of the sun collectors.
    Solar energy may be used as a supply to a coal fired plant, which is almost impossible to regulate as the sun shifts trough a day and even day/night. The sun-plant must then be able to cover the costs of the high idle charge of the coal-plant.
    A gas fired plant is far easier to regulate, but the cost of having such a plant ready without production must be covered by the solar plant since this is dependent of the gas fire for supply in nights and days with a low solar intensity, and not vice versa.
    How nuclear power plants functions in cooperation with solar plants is not a part of my knowledge.

    Solar energy functions best in cooperation with hydropower, as this is quick and easy to regulate and there are a “build in” function of power-storage in the dam. To save water in dry periods with lots of sunshine is a benefit for owners of a hydropower works. (A surpluss of solar energy may also be used to pump back water to the dam.)
    To calculate the actual price of solar energy is not an easy target.
    For a E-cat powered plant calculation will be far easier when the details of performance and the price of the E-cats are available and sigma 5 dependability is achieved.

  748. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    The worship of solar energy, windmills, and the irrational fear of carbon have become a religion and a powerful political force. Members of this new religion make false posts all over the Internet about how cheap solar and wind power are, yet they all still insist solar and wind must be mandated and subsidized. Obviously, if they were telling the truth about the low cost and efficiency of wind and solar projects, you would not have to force and bribe anyone to buy them. They have no respect for free markets and free choice.

    A great mental antidote to this new false religion is to watch “THE GLOBAL WARMING FAD – Paleoclimatologist Bob Carter: Climate Context As A Basis For Better Policy” on YouTube. The professor is truly brilliant and quite funny as well.

    Christopher Calder:
    I worked since when I was 20 years old to when I was 40 years old in the field of the BACT ( Best Available Control Technologies) to make sustainable the emissons from the combustion of polluting fuels, among which coal. As a consequence of this experience I assure you that, with proper technologies, coal can be burnt in a sustainable way. On the contrary, so far the gurus of the solar stuff have still to give evidence of the fact that the solar-religion-sustained apparatuses are able to compete in the field of energy production without the funding coming from the bills paid to the taxpayers.
    The MWh produced with thermoelectric generators fueled by coal supplied by BACT anti-pollution plants costs 35-50 $.
    The MWh produced with solar devices costs between 300 and 400 $ (the energy produced by solar apparatuses is a small fraction of their power, because the sun shines only a small portion of a day, as an average, on this planet) and the difference is paid by the taxpayer ( look carefully at your bills ).
    This is the fact and the hypocrisy that makes the halo around the solar myth is destroying jobs. I have nothing to earn to write this, but I can’t stand persons that try to destroy honest people only because the “destroyers” are not able to compete on a fair ground.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The use of solar technology to generate electricity is viable as only a member of an integrated approach. Obviously, solar does not work at night. So energy storage during the daylight hours for later use to provide electricity during the evening hours would be required if solar were to be used for Baseload (continuous) purposes. Some techniques propose to use molten salts (heated by solar power during the day and tapped that heat during the evening) but there are many inefficiencies involved (turn solar electricity to heat tp warm the molten salts, cooling losses, then the Carnot cycle to generate steam and then to produce electricity). A solar-only approach is not compatible with our current electrical society.

    Ecat Technology (if it is real and can be economically implemented) suggests Baseload operation – 24 x 7 operation for a year, continuous output level power. The energy solution requires an integrated approach. Solar could drop to near $0 per MWhr and Solar would still be so limited.

    Australia is a great place to produce solar electricity — lots of unused land, desert, with an abundance of sunlight (insolation). They could become the solar electricity source for the world if there was a way to transport the electrical power to other places. But they are 1/2 a world away from the US and Europe. So their day time is our night time. If economical and environmentally safe electrical power transmission technologies were developed, then a world wide solar-based electrical system might be feasible. But, as of now, it is for sci-fi writers only to dream of. But there would be transmission losses and likely environmental impacts.

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect, may I recommend you review your knowledge about solar and government subsidy. This is now falling a lot and in fact the fossil fuel power generation industry is the one heavily subsidised.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Quote from http://www.solarcitizens.org.au/myths


    MYTH: Renewable energy can’t compete economically with burning coal for power.

    FACT: The fossil fuel industry is heavily subsidised.

    The energy market in Australia is not a level playing field. The fossil fuel-based electricity system we have today is built on government subsidies, and fossil fuels continue to enjoy government assistance. For example, the Tamberlin Inquiry in NSW revealed that the government-owned Cobbora coal mine sold coal to power stations ‘at cost price’ (roughly 30 per cent of the price paid by other generators on the open market), which meant that: ‘…State-owned generators and gentraders [had] access to coal at a lower price than would have been available to them had they had to source such coal through a tender process.’

    This amounts to a subsidy of around $4 billion over the life of the contracts, and it is just one example of where taxpayers are footing the bill.

    On top of that, fossil fuels have been subsidised by not having to pay for the greenhouse gases they produce, and for the other health and environmental impacts they cause.

    Analysis published in the American Economic Review calculated that the economic damage caused by air pollutants from coal burning (in terms of health impacts and local pollution) exceeds the value of the electricity produced.”

    Do you need a certificate to sell me all these “Lego cubes”?
    Maybe I’ll make two power stations or two million home heaters.
    Are you going to sell houses, or materials for building houses?

    Thank you for your work.

    Dear Andrea.
    I reckon the test today will turn out very well.
    I also think there may be some important officials present.
    As your strategy is to sell heat until the very affordably QX are ready for the marked, I have two questions:
    1-When do you anticipate such a robotized production line are ready for mass production?
    2-Will OEMs in different industries be informed of the possibilities in the period before the mass production occurs?
    Regards: Svein Henrik

  766. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Yes, the test has been very positive.

    Dear Andrea,

    I know you have been seeking for 5 sigma for many months now, and I hope you are able to achieve this goal. It is clearly very important to you; however, I am still a bit unclear about what the significance of 5 sigma is — can you explain what the benefit will be to you if you finally reach the point of 5 sigma.

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Ophelia quote on ECW –

    “Rossi is doing the right thing selling the power.

    That should be required for anyone claiming to be able
    to produce energy from some new technology, sell the energy.
    Delivering energy below market cost is very convincing.”

    Dear Andea,
    Sorry that I continue asking about this further, but as an electrical engineer I find this highly intriguing. When you say that an electrical power plant with an E-cat QX is expected “much earlier” in operation than within 10 years, then plans must be quite developed.
    Can you expand a bit on that e.g.:
    1. Is the power level a: 0.1-1MW; b: 1-5 MW; c: >5 MW?
    2. Will it be in operation in a. 4 years?
    3. Is it based on a steam cycle or an other medium?
    Thanks!

    Dear Andrea,

    You say that you are now ready to produce electricity via Carnot cycle on an industrial scale.

    As you know, every year multi-megawatt coal plants are retired, having passed their useful lifespan, and thus we lose a source of grid power, while our world’s thirst for energy increases.

    Is the E-Cat QX developed enough now to be able to fuel a power station generating 500 MW of electricity (the average size of a US coal plant)?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  821. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Attention: I did not say that we are ready now to produce on industrial scale the E-Cat: I said that we are ready to produce industrial plants able to be coupled with the Carnot cycle system.
    Our construction and delivery time is not yet comparable to the time allowed by a massive industrial production, that is our target, but not our present capacity.

    Robert Curto,

    The U.S. electrical generation system is composed of four types of generation; baseload; seasonal baseload; intermrdiate; and peak. The heaviest consumption of electricity occurs seasonally during the summer and winter months. There is about a 60% variation over a single day in the consumption of electricity – heaviest in the late afternoon and lowest in the early morning hours.

    Since a Carnot cycle is used to generate the electricity (heat water to steam, turbines, etc.), the baseload generation unit is run continuously at the optimum efficiency setting for the overall generation unit. Then intermediate and peak generation is added to meet increased demand. Examples of baseload generation are coal-fired and nuclear plants. I believe this is where Ecat technology will most likely find its first power generation application.

  832. Dr. Rossi, if you can produce heat and electricity for 90% less cost, with zero emissions, who is going to compete with that ?
    Coal Plants kill, that is a fact.
    Nuke Plants produce Radioactive Rods, that have to be watched for over 100,000 YEARS.
    Solar and Wind work part time.
    I don’t know much about Natural Gas, but it cannot be less expensive then E-Cat.

    Can E-Cat produce electricity for a Condo, with each Apt. using what they need true a Meter ?

    As heating of homes are of considerable important for some billion peoples living in cold parts of the world, have you considered in which form the heating devices may be produced?
    1 May small units as radiators or fan heaters be actual?
    2 May such units be possible to operate without an electrical grid, only support from batteries preferably with thermoelectrical loading devices?
    (Today there is on the marked thermoelectrical fans operating on wood fired furnaces, and units for loading cellphones.)

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As we fret about carbon footprints, I am almost positive some government agency will start restricting wood-based campfires because of their CO2 output. So why not an Ecat based “camp fire”, for keeping warm, a soft glow, roasting marshmellows, etc. I would assume the control unit could be in the tent and the Quark reactor in the fire pit. With suitable “crackling noises” added for ambiance, plus the absolute control of the Quark temperature, and thus its blackbody radiation, a suitable simulated wood campfire could be produced. Plus no worry about starting the fire because of rain or throwing gasoline on the wood to start the fire. When can you produce these — LOL?

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    I understand that at the first stage you will manage the units yourself and sell energy.
    1. When do you plan to switch to selling finished products? (one, three, five years?)
    2. Do you plan to separately separate Quark X in the future, separate control systems, for further assembly by the client of various installations for different purposes? Or just finished products?
    3. Will the certification of the installations you use be different and which customers will use or not?
    4. Do you need additional certification for the sale of individual items (Lego)?
    Sorry, maybe it’s too early to ask such questions.
    Presentation at the end of October? Look forward.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions.

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I am sure you are aware of this project, I would ask your thoughts on the possibility of pairing a Quark X array with this.

    http://www.ge.com/reports/call-ecomagination-ge-building-co2-powered-turbine-generates-10-megawatts-fits-table/

    It would seem, to my laymans imagination, that this would be within the Quark X’s range of operation and quite a good match up as the current generator schematic requires about 1/2 of the generated electricity to be used to heat the gas.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    The sale of household heaters E-Cat requires many years for certification. This is true?
    When will you start mass production of Quark X elements and management systems, can a company in a country with simpler certification requirements buy these elements, collect small units (5-10-15 kW) and sell in its market?

    Svein Henrik,

    The conversion of energy is well known to all. Solar Cells convert sunlight to electricity. Hydroelectric (falling water) convert potential energy from gravity to electricity. Burning coal also produces electricity and, in addition, excess heat and carbon dioxide plus other pollutants, nuclear produces electricity and excess heat plus nuclear waste storage issues, wind powered generates produce electricity plus dead birds. A theoretical E-Cat powered plant will likely produce electricity plus unknown pollutants? Who knows until it changes from the theoretical into reality.

    The question is what is the effect on the environment (good or bad) for the benefit of the usable power generated for mankind? E-Cat technology, if real, looks very promising. If it really words, if it can be scaled up to commercial levels, if it is really controllable and safe. Unlike wind or solar, E-Cat based power generation looks promising for baseload electric power generation – constant output power, day and night, with a relatively low cost of operation. As Andrea has pointed out many, many times, the energy solution will be an integrated approach.

    Dear Andrea Rossi and readers,

    The 54 Cats at Hemingway House in Key West survived Hurricane Irma. These cats have 6 toes (per paw) and apparently have more lives as well. Unfortunately, in the overall area affected by Hurricane Irma, there was considerable property damage and, tragically, loss of life and serious injuries. I am posting this, because it may provide a lighter note to this event.

    I hope you allow me to expand on the question if customers that want to generate electricity had approached you for using the E-cat QX and that you answered positive. Is it likely that within 10 years a E-cat QX plant generates heat for a operational power station?

    Dear Andrea,
    I have never experienced anything like a cat 4 or 5 Hurricane but after following the story of Irma I was quite stricken by the force of nature and how broad ranging and powerful it can be.

    It occurs to me that In many ways with the e-cat you are looking at the maximum power of nature in the very small while outside nature was showing her strength in the very large.

    I only saw some news pictures of the storm at Cat 3 and already it had awesome power. For those communities that experienced Cat 5 it must have been devastating. I hope despite the obvious damage those communities in the Caribean and Florida are able to recover relatively soon.

    I wonder how responses to these kind of situations can be improved and maybe if one day some technology based on the e-cat can help that. It seemed to me the things most needed quickly are food water and shelter, along with fuel and power. Maybe be a generator that can be brought by Helicopter, boat or truck along with tents and dehydrated food that can make use that generator would help a lot with those things. I know these things can’t happen fast but I have hope that maybe they will be possible someday.

    My best regards to you, your family and team especially those of you who went through this storm.

    Dear Andrea,
    Thanks God you have survived Irma. I hope you did not have many difficulties with any services like power, water, telephone etc. or flooding around the building during her passage?
    Just another question crossed my mind lately. There are many customers approaching you. Were there any customers that have asked you to deliver heat for an electrical power generation unit? Would you be prepared to go into a joined venture with such a customer in short terms?

  871. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your concern.
    All the issues from Irma have been overcome.
    Answer:

    Warm Regards

  872. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    Whether Irma was a result of global warming or not, may be difficult to confirm.
    Chines authorities are now considering possibilities to ban vehicles driven by hydrocarbons.
    The most obvious alternative is vehicles with electric motors.
    One of the most prominent benefits of the QX is the high energy content versus weight.
    One QX, with the approximately weight of 2,5 grams, may submit 200 kWh within a life span of 10 000 hours of use. This is about the same amount of energy as in 20 kg gasoline.
    A bundle of 6 kg QX (2400 pieces) may submit a continuous heat of 48 kWh.
    This may be enough to produce 16 kWh electricity through the Carnot cycle.
    With help from a battery of the size of 1/10 of a standard Tesla battery, a lightweight car may function well with this power source.
    (When not on the road, such a car may also provide the owners house with electricity.)
    For the drive alone, in average 2 hours a day, the QX bundle will last for 14 years and reduced the CO2-pollution directly with approx. 120 tons. (The lack of need for production and transport of hydrocarbons will increase this amount.)
    This may not reduce the price of cars or the cost of using cars since the cost of the roads will still be the same, but the global warming and local air-pollutions may be reduced very much.
    I hope your decision of selling energy do not prevents developing solutions for such a use.

    So that we may acquire a heart of wisdom.
    13 Return, O Jehovah! How long will this last?
    Have pity on your servants.
    14 Satisfy us with your loyal love in the morning,
    So that we may shout joyfully and rejoice during all our days.
    15 Make us rejoice in proportion to the days you have afflicted us,
    For as many years as we have experienced calamity.
    16 May your servants see your activity,
    And may their sons see your splendor.
    17 May the favor of Jehovah our God be upon us;
    May you prosper the work of our hands.
    Yes, prosper the work of our hands.

    Our factory is hurricane resistant, my family is safely lodged, I am hurricane proof: as a matter of fact, I am more hurricane than Irma ( he,he,he ).
    Speaking seriously: the storm is increasing right now (12.10 P.M.), wind and rain are surging, but the core of it is moving west, saving to our place the harder part. So far. We all are worried for the people in the Keys, where it seems the hurricane will unleash all its power. They need our prayers.

    JPR:
    Also today the E-Cat QX is making properly his job.
    So far Irma did not hit, in this moment we are just experiencing guts of wind and some rain typical of the average storms in the Miami area in this season.
    The hit is foreseen by this afternoon, by the route of the events cone has changed, in the sense that the hurricane cyclon is rotating toward west, so that it should not hit frontally our area.
    The part of Florida that is supposed to be frontally stricken by the hurricane is now the area of the Keys, between Key West and Marathon.

  898. Lucio Martini

    Dear Ing. Rossi;

    Let me explain to you why the Carnot cycle can not be obtained with steam

    Because you do not waste time, I’m sending you a sketch on which I designed the Rankine cycle that develops between points: 1-2-2′-3-4, to which I have superimposed the cycle of Carnot that develops in points 2 “-2′-3-4 The two cycles, obviously working at the same temperatures and pressures I hope that both visible I hypothesized that the two cycles will develop between:
    T1 = T4 = 40 ° C p1 = p4 = 0.07375 bar = 7.375 kPa
    T2 = T3 = 250.33 ° C p2 = p3 = 40 bar = 4000 kPa
    I save the calculations, the results are:
    ηR = 0.345 (Rankine)
    ηC = 0.402 (Carnot’s)
    with x=71.5% in point 4 stop expiation steam (x is the ratio of the steam that mean 71.5% steam and 28.5%water in a wet steam)
    As expected, Carnot wins.
    However, the problem to realize this loop is in point 2 ” (where x=30.55%)
    It is impossible (or almost impossible) stop the condensation with a steam with x=30.55% title (at counts). In addition compress the steam wet would cause serious cavitation problems and finally in boiler where we have the steam at 250 ° temperature it would enter steam at 40°C with predictable thermodynamic mismatches.
    In the point 3 last problem is this: after turbine expansion, the value obtained x = 71.5% is low, should be x= 90% (but better more) to avoid problems of damage to the turbine.
    To avoid turbine problems, the saturated steam must be overheated in step 3. Saturated steam (in both cycles). But overheating would not get Carnot’s cycle. The overheated part is an isobaric, not isothermal transformation!
    Dear Ing. Rossi, I had, Ihave, and always will have it maximum esteem for you and how much you is doing.
    I also hope that the new E-TIGER QX directly produces electricity.
    Steam would be a problem in special way for the domestic plants
    While I am waiting “my” E-CAT, I have been one the first subscribers.
    Sincerely, and wish you all the best.
    Lucio Martini.

    P.S. I also calculated what happens by moving points 2 – 3 to 30 and 50 bar
    maintaining the condensation at points 1 – 4 at 40 ° C
    obtaining ηR = 0,355 ηC = 0,583 for 50 bar and ηR = 0,332 ηC = 0.382 for 30 bar but point 2 “keeps changing only slightly (x=30%: x=27% in stop condensation 2” Carnot very hight for the pump. But: x=70.3% ; x=73% in both cycles, very low for the turbine)

    Dear Readers:
    I decided to remain close to our factory, where probably the hurricane Irma will hit Saturday and Sunday. Therefore I do not know if the internet broadcasting will work: nobody has idea about this.
    As a consequence of this consideration, I am not sure if I will be able to publish and respond on this blog next Saturday and Sunday “throughout the ordeal” as Frank Acland wrote hereunder.
    If the internet will work, I will do as usual, otherwise I will keep again blogging as soon as the internet will be fixed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems like whatever the exact path that Irene takes, south Florida will experience some very severe weather. I wish you the best, and hope that you, your family, your colleagues and the E-Cats are secure throughout the ordeal!

    The NRL in 2011 made in Washington a test of the E-Cat during which the reactor remained practically for the 90% of the time in SSM. An officer of the DOE gave testimony of this fact in this very blog about a year ago.
    Can you talk us more about that experiment?

    Dear Andrea:

    You have shared that some in the crude oil distillation industry have or will visit you to presumably learn more about the E-Cat QX and possibly enter into a business arrangement.

    Also, you have responded to Gerard McEk saying that the E-Cat QX plant you are currently constructing for industry will produce heat in the range of 100-200C.

    The following link outlines the temperatures applicable to crude oil distillation, showing a peak operating temperature of about 400C. Does this support the assumption that your targeted industrial customer(s) are not in the oil refinery industry?

    Again, thank you for your willingness to share.

    It is exciting to hear that you have already started to construct plants of a considerable capacity (> 1MW). Please allow me to ask some questions about it:
    1. You will deliver energy and I assume it will be heat energy. Is that right?
    2. If so will it be a. low level heat (100-200 C); b. medium level heat (200-600 C) or c. > 600 C?
    3. May these also plants be used as a demonstration facility for the E-cat QX if everything goes well?
    Thanks.

    Dear Rossi

    Recent lowest bid on a solar farm

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-08-18/chile-s-energy-industry-a-spot-of-light-in-a-darkening-economy

    In last week’s energy auction, Chile accepted a bid from Spanish developer Solarpack Corp. Tecnologica for 120 megawatts of solar at the stunning price of $29.10 per megawatt-hour (2.91 cents per kilowatt-hour or kwh). This beats the 2.99 cents/kwh bid Dubai received recently for 800 megawatts. For context, the average residential price for electricity in the United States is 12 cents per kilowatt-hour.

    Will the ecat qx be as competitive as above offer?

  935. Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    As I always said, all the energy sources must be integrated. When you give data related to solar, you always must consider that the efficiency is not a number, but an integral wherein it is in function of the sun irradiation.
    This said, congratulations to the Chilean solar industry!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    While you continue progress toward Sigma-5, you must certainly be aware that Hurricane Irma, a very dangerous Category-5 Hurricane, is heading in the direction of Florida.

    My/(Our familly’s) best wishes for the safety of you and your team during the next several days and weeks.

    Have you protected yourself and your crew, the facility equipment and the E-Cat QX system itself? Or in other words, do you think the E-Cat QX system will be able to operate during the arival and departure of IRMA…..

    Can you reduce power output for 24 hours without impacting the SIGMA-5 test?

    Be well, stay safe and, following the storm, Full Speed Ahead!

    What is your goal for E-Cat adoption in the marketplace: fast, slow, or somewhere in the middle? Whatever your answer, can you explain why?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland:
    Slow. The reason is: to resolve with calm all the unavoidable problems that will come up. The model is the strategy of George Washington during the Independence war: he has been enormously and repeatedly criticized for his continue delay of the important crucial battles, but he accepted the fight only when he was sure his heroic voluntary patriots were ready to fight against the professional forces of the United Kingdom.

    Climate change is a fact, if they say change is abnormal. I would suggest that anything that not changes is more likely to be looked at from a narrow point of view, especially with large scientific and touchable (e.g. oil) evidence that climate has been changing as far as we can tell. Going into deeper detail than media outlets and sponsored research there is scientific evidence for and against climate change and clear scientific and touchable evidence for negative effects of pollution on living beeings.
    In my point of view scientific thinking works very beautifully in a narrow scientific set up with limited variables involved and fails miserably in almost any real world interpretation.

    For example big bang theory is very unlikely from a logical point of view as we are here, so everything created from a single vibration is not very feasible.
    Also expansion of the universe is very unlikely, because where is the universe expanding into and where are it’s boundaries at the first place?
    From a scientific point of view the given explanations are very logical, but from worldly thinking there is just no telling I believe.

    Scientific thinking is very likely to be paradoxical at it’s root, but for a paradoxical thinker to notice his paradoxical thinking is not very easy, as he would have to recognize himself outside of scientific thinking.
    I think modern society has been fooling itself by the science god from time to time

    Dr Rossi –

    This statement by Stephen on eCatWorld pretty much sums it up for us:

    “Personally I think Andrea Rossi is obviously a thoughtful person has his own strong views and opinions and In my view has a good moral compass. I think he wants the ECat to be something beautiful and helpful that’s why he wants to take care of its distribution. I think it has little to do with personal enrichment through money or even fame but everything to do with taking care his invention is for good and is in good hands. Sometimes it’s hard to let something like that free into the world but eventually its time”

    @Frank Acland,

    i) Human induced climate change is a fact, so fossil fuels have to be phased out as soon as possible.

    ii) Present nuclear technology is not clean enough, especially because of the problem of the high radioactive and long lasting waste (caused by the actinides in the waste, that have to be stored and isolated from the environment for more than 200.000 years, which is a geological time scale, knowing also that every 100.000 years there’s an ice age, which puts lot of pressure (masses of ice) on the geological layers they want to store the nuclear waste in, accompanied with big see level change, so geological layers could crack, and geological water could wash out the dangerous actinides.

    iii) In Belgium and in whole Europe, also in the USA, almost all nuclear power plants are old and are operated beyond their normal lifespan. This gives extra costs (and makes them less competitive) and is dangerous.

    iv) Solar and wind energy are variable and destabilize the grid, so we need the E-Cat Quark X as well in stand by for the renewable sources, as well as base load in the energy mix to replace present old nuclear power plants.

    v) In Europa we plan to phase out combustion engines in cars, and want to replace them by electrical driven cars, so we need more electricity from the grid.

    vi) Because of the phasing out of present old nuclear power plants, we will have problems to produce enough energy, so we need the E-Cat Quark X ASAP to take over (as base load and as well as stand-by for the renewable sources).

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

  949. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    StudentG suggests that the E-Cat’s impact will be minimal because of the human habit to ignore anything new, and the wide saturation of solar It would seem to me that for the E-Cat to break out, there would be a need for publicity of its benefits. How do you expect to generate widespread interest in the E-Cat?

    Hi,

    I would suggest that both NCY and Rossi are not necessarly right, because both rely on theory.
    What is actually observed is millions of people working in solar, wind and other “renewable” or “recycleable” resources by the day, reducing prices and increasing efficiencies multiple times a year.
    I hope that this technology will be understood from a scientific point of view, but it´s actual importance and usefullness in this mighty market economy will be minimal, not because it´s not a great invention, but time is running way to fast and there is not enough interest because of human habit to neglect anything out of the box for potentially a very long time.
    Current solar technologies are in most places more competetiv than coal and gas beginning from this year, with still very very high potential for example in hetero junction solar cells and thin film such as perovskite cells etc. Similar is true for wind and in a few years with fuell cells. Creative thinking is just way to powerful.

    I also hope that I will be wrong with this opinion 😉

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I have watched your story for many years now, and am disappointed. While progress is being made, it is being made by you alone, because you alone have the secret to highly efficient LENR.
    If others had the knowledge you have, much more progress could have been made.
    Your recent comments on the topic of the difficulties of commercialization, and the difficulties of producing to market without reverse engineering of your products, are concerning. These comments give the impression that you intend to hold your knowledge hostage until you alone can get this technology to a high level of commercial production by yourself, and only licence commercial plants, all for the sole purpose of making money before this eventual reverse engineering and copying by the chinese.
    This is barely feasible, and the reverse engineering will occur anyway. All it results in is a delay in LENR getting to market.

    LENR is the technology mankind needs NOW, not in five years when you’ve figured out a way to make money off of it. We are all getting old, and there comes a time that you have to ask, “How do I want to be remembered?”

    At the moment it seems that you are well on the track to being remembered as a man who discovered the golden goose, but hid it in his basement until the day he died for fear that someone else would steal his golden eggs and raise a flock of golden geese. While the pursuit of entrepreneurship is admirable, and you feel that something is owed to you for this discovery, your actions have directly led to the delayed development of LENR by holding these secrets to yourself.

    You could be remembered as the man who invented the technology that solved the world’s energy crisis, and saved the world by gifting this technology to it, but you won’t be able to do this by trying to commercialize the device yourself. Take a leaf out of Elon Musk’s book and release your secrets to the world, so that researchers around the globe can join you in your tinkering and develop the next wave of clean energy devices.

    Money is just money, you can’t take it with you to the grave, but respect lasts forever. Which do you want?

    Caro Ing. Rossi
    la pregherei di non pubblicare questa mia riflessione, comunque lascio a lei la decisione.
    Cerco di darle qui la motivazione da ingegnere a ingegnere della difficoltà ad ottenere il ciclo di Carnot con il vapore e quindi la necessità di adottare il ciclo Rankine. Sarebbe più semplice e più facilmente comprensibile se le potessi disegnare il tutto.
    Se lei vorrà disegnare il rettangolo del ciclo di Carnot sotto la campana di Andrews con coordinate T/S (Temperatura/Entropia) iniziando dal punto più alto (per temperatura e pressione) alla sinistra (inizio vaporizzazione ad alta pressione) riscaldando raggiungerà, muovendosi orizzontalmente la completa vaporizzazione (con una trasformazione isotermica), quindi scenderà con una traformazione a entropia costante, riducendo la pressione e la temperatura raggiungendo la temperatura più bassa del ciclo. A questo punto inizia la condensazione che sarà a temperatura costante. Condensazione che dovrebbe arrestarsi, sotto la verticale del primo punto, alla stessa entropia dello stesso primo punto. Da lì il ciclo deve completarsi con una trasformazione a entropia costante, muovendosi in verticale aumentando di pressione e temperatura.
    Ebbene in questo ultimo punto si ha vapore umido, (circa 10% vapore e 90% acqua) ed è difficile arrestare la condensazione (direi impossibile) inoltre pompare il vapore umido dalla bassa pressione alla pressione iniziale distruggerebbe il compressore nel giro di poche ore.
    Si deve pertanto condensare completamente il vapore trasformandolo completamente in acqua e pomparla fino al primo punto, in modo da riprendere il ciclo. In tal modo si ha il ciclo di Rankine. Con rendimento certamente inferiore al ciclo di Carnot. Tuttavia con uno o due surriscaldamenti il rendimento migliora arrivando a un 35%.

    If you want to draw the rectangle of the Carnot cycle under the Andrews bell with T / S (Temperature / Entropy) coordinates starting from the highest point (for high temperature and pressure) to the left (start vaporization of high pressure) heating you will reach, moving horizontally, complete vaporization (with an isothermal transformation), then you will come down with a constant entropy transformation, reducing the pressure and temperature reaching the lowest temperature of the cycle. At this point, the condensation begins at a constant temperature. Condensation that should stop, under the vertical of the first point of the cycle, to the same entropy of the same first point. From there, the cycle must be completed with a constant entropy transformation, moving vertically by increasing pressure and temperature. Well at this third point you have wet steam (about 10% steam and 90% water) and it is difficult to stop the condensation (I think imposible), in addiction pump the wet steam from the low pressure to the initial pressure would destroy the compressor within a few hours. You must therefore completely condense the steam by turning it completely into water and pump it up to the first point, so that you can resume the cycle. This is how the Rankine cycle is. With performance certainly lower than the Carnot cycle. However, with one or two overheating, the performance improves more or less until 35%.
    Con immutata stima.
    Lucio Martini

  973. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini:
    Thank you for your insight, that is interesting and there is no reason not to publish it. I have studied the possibility to couple the E-Cats with the Rankine cycle technology. I did it thoroughly in 2012 with an engineer that manufactures Rankine boilers.
    We arrived to the conclusion that the Carnot cycle is 5% more efficient even with optimal data from the E-Cat. Rankine is better at lower temperatures, but at 550 C is not competitive.
    Disclaimer: I am talking of 2012 and I am not informed about improvements that can have been made in the last 5 years. If you operate in the field and want to make proposals, I am curious and I am here:

    Frank Acland:
    Premature to answer.
    Sharks are around ( especially the most vociferous competitors, whose vociferity is inversally proportional to their capacity to make something real by themselves, otherwise they’d have not time to vociferate ) waiting for the availability of our products to copy them. It is true that our patents cover our IP, but litigations have a huge cost. The best protection will be our economy scale. This makes unlikely that we will put for sale our mass products before we will have completed the industrialization of the manufacturing, to put for sale the E-Cat at a price able to restrain the competition from the beginning. We will continue to sell only big industrial plants, directly managed by us until we will be ready to put in commerce our E-Cats at a price for which the competition will not be encouraged, or able, to proceed against us.

    Dear Andrea,

    I appreciate your effort to answer Chung’s question.

    Respectfully, here is PBS’s effort to answer in response to hurricane Harvey the question: “did climate change make recent storms worse?” It looks to be a good even-handed response.

  996. Chung

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think that what happened in Houston, Texas, has the global warming as a cause ? If yes, don’t you think such hurricanes never happened before the industrialization of mankind?

  997. Andrea Rossi

    Chung:
    Hard to answer. My opinion is that the changes that are happening in the global climate are probably due to a displacement of the magnetic poles of our planet. I also think that hurricanes like the one of the present tragedy in Texas always happened during the last two centuries. About the relevance of the industrialization of mankind on the climate change on course, I do not think the evidence given so far is convincing. Earth had dramatic changes along its eons, think that the Sahara desert was geographically similar to the Amazon jungle in a former eon. This said, I think it is educating to say ” maybe we can help to reduce the global warming reducing pollution caused by industrialization”: if a wrong opinion can generate a right behavior, it is a good thing; to reduce pollution, if not useful to change the course of the global warming, surely is necessary to improve the health of mankind.

  998. Lucio Martini

    Dear Ing. Rossi
    In response to Manuel Cilia you mentioned the cycle of Carnot. However if the cycle is, as I think, realized using steam, this cycle can not be realized, so it will have to opt for the Rankine cycle with any overheating. However, the yield will be slightly lower.
    Kind regards
    Lucio Martini

  999. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini:
    Why should not be realized? It is surely realizable. The efficiency of the Rankine cycle is max 20%, the efficiency of the Carnot cycle at 50 Bars is 40%.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1000. Dear Dr Rossi

    I my mind your reactor is already working and your part of that will change history. I am a simple engineer and I am trying to couple your tech to work in the world. have you tried high temp experiments, steam turbines are great for very large scale industrial >10Mw scale but for smaller commercial and industrial scale 0.5-1Mw ORC generator seem simpler and less maintenance. What are your intentions for generating electricity or are you getting electricity directly from the reactor

    Thank you

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m guessing that after Sigma 5 on a single Quark, you might be putting increased effort into the R&D for making clusters of Quarks. I have a few questions about clusters that I hope you can answer at some level (high or low):

    1) Have you built and begun testing a small cluster of more than 5 or 10 quarks?
    2) On paper, or in your head, do you have a high-level mechanical and electrical design for what a cluster of quarks would look like?
    3) Do you have a physical “mockup” of what a cluster might look like?
    4) Do you think that a cluster intended for “liquid heat transfer” would be the same as a cluster intended for “air heat transfer”?
    5) Off topic: In English, a group of cats is called a clowder (something I just now learned)– not very catchy; is there perhaps an Italian word for a group of cats?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  1019. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- yes, with different heat exchangers
    5- a group of animals is in general defined “branco”: as far as I know, there is not a specific vocabule for a “branco” of cats. In Italian, we’d say ” un branco di gatti” to translate the English vocabule ” clowder “.

My question: Although you are not sharpening the tips of the pyramids, does 5 Sigma do more than just sharpening your confidence in the E-cat QX? Is it also required for your next steps as well?
    Anyway, I congratulate you and your team that now the control of the QX is completely satisfying! I hope the rest will follow soon and that you proudly can show the world you hard-born child E-cat QX.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Frank Acland:
    The answer to this question is very complex. I can say that we are resolving problems, also for what concerns the partnerships necessary for the financial issues bound to the industrialization.
    Basically, we are very close to Sigma 5 level of reliablity of the basic module and putting modules in parallel we can reach any power.
    Hard work is on course. Our Team is getting greater by the day. As Maurizio Crozza says: ” We are not sharpening the tips of the Pyramids”.

    Evidence of nuclear fusion neutrons in an extremely small plasma focus device operating at 0.1 Joules

    ABSTRACT
    We report on D-D fusion neutron emission in a plasma device with an energy input of only 0.1 J, within a range where fusion events have been considered very improbable. The results presented here are the consequence of scaling rules we have derived, thus being the key point to assure the same energy density plasma in smaller devices than in large machines. The Nanofocus (NF)—our device—was designed and constructed at the P4 Lab of the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission. Two sets of independent measurements, with different instrumentation, were made at two laboratories, in Chile and Argentina. The neutron events observed are 20σ greater than the background. The NF plasma is produced from a pulsed electrical discharge using a submillimetric anode, in a deuterium atmosphere, showing empirically that it is, in fact, possible to heat and compress the plasma. The strong evidence presented here stretches the limits beyond what was expected. A thorough understanding of this could possibly tell us where the theoretical limits actually lie, beyond conjectures. Notwithstanding, a window is thus open for low cost endeavours for basic fusion research. In addition, the development of small, portable, safe nonradioactive neutron sources becomes a feasible issue

  1047. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    To have max safety and stability a control system with integrative term (PID like if standard) should have also and anti wind-up mechanism.

    Does your control system have an integrative term and so zero error control?
    In the positive case, does your control system have an anti wind-up mechanism?
    If so, please highlight this in every technical documentation: this should increase the possibility and the speed of acceptance for the safety certification.

    If not, please consider to include such features in the control system: integrative term means precise control of the output variable (in this case, temperature) and anti wind-up mechanism means maximum stability.

    Best Regards,
    Marco.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    It’s a fact that cold fusion never managed to get out of the labs: do you trust that one day it will be possible with the E-cat, to make it a product that can be bought?

    By saying that I think of the first E-cat (Bologne 2012, 10KW thermal single unit) that we all expect and that has been waiting for its certification for years.

    Subsidiary question: Is the old E-act still relevant, and if so, do you think it will be proposed at the same time as the new QX?

    Regards,

    Michel

  1051. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    Of course I think that the E-Cat will enter in the industrialization phase, otherwise I would not spend my life for this R&D.
    About the certification: we have obtained it for the industrial plants, while for the domestic I think the time will not be short, for the reasons I have explained many times in this blog, but I am sure that, after a sound diffusion of the industrial applications, also the domestic applications will obtain the safety certification.
    About the QX: it is the last evolution of the E-Cat, there is no reason to return to the past, because the QX is more efficient.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Have you ever tried a small amount of Cesium in your device? One advantage is the low ionization energy of this atom, which makes the transfer of higher energies in your device into the infrared spectrum very efficient. Perhaps this would aid you in removing generated internal energies from the internal part of your system. The Alumina tube is quite transparent to infrared frequencies.

    Mizuno is replicating the experiment shown in the Gullstrom-Rossi paper, but with a much lower cop:

    Observation of excess heat by activated metal
    and deuterium gas
    Tadahiko Mizuno
    Hydrogen Engineering Application & Development Company, Kita 12 Nishi 4, Kita-ku, Sapporo
    001-0012, Japan
    ABSTRACT
    Reports of heat-generating cold fusion reactions in the nickel–hydrogen system have been
    increasing. The reactions mainly involve nickel with other additive elements. The authors of
    these reports emphasized the importance of an extremely clean system in the electrolytic tests
    in which excess heat was generated. Therefore, we attempted to detect excess heat after
    reducing impurities to a minimum by cleaning the electrode carefully and then fabricating
    nanoparticles in situ in our test system, without ever exposing them to air. As a result, energy
    far exceeding input was continuously obtained. In the best results obtained thus far, the output
    thermal energy is double the input electrical energy, amounting to several hundred watts. The
    generated thermal energy follows an exponential temperature function. When the reactor
    temperature is 300°C, the generated energy is 1 kW. An increase of the temperature is expected
    to greatly increase the output energy.
    We have recently improved the preparation of the electrode material. This enhanced
    reproducibility and increased excess heat. The new methods are described in an appendix.

  1076. Dear Andrea Rossi,
    concerning the presentation of the E-Cat-QX in October I have a question. As I understand the presentation made by specialists will central be more or less for commercial purpose, where the scientific background plays a role, but is not the main topic of the event.

    My question, are you planning some kind of advertising effects during the event, for example (what comes to my mind) placing one E-Cat-QX on a glass table where you can (visible and indisputable for all) disconnect the device from the grid, while it is running in self sustain mode, or something like that?

    All the best!

    Dear Andrea,

    I have a question about the SSM that may sound odd to some.

    You have described the SSM as that time frame when the power driving control is turned off. And, you currently are pushing the envelope of the percentage of time in SSM, currently about 70%.

    I am not an engineer/physicist and so I am guessing that the LENR effect is a quantum level effect. If this is so, then my question is this:

    At what scale do you measure the %SSM? At the level of seconds, or at the level of something like nano-seconds? Does it occur at a scale which overlaps the control signals going into the E-Cat QX module?

    If the answer is part of the IP, then of course ignore the question.

    Dear Andrea,

    You stated that the SSM now can be 70% of the time. I wonder if this result can be achieved also under load.

    Let me explain.

    You have a nail sized object that produce about 20W, reaching, supposedly in air, a certain temperature.

    This is due to the thermal equilibrium.

    Now if this nail has to heat a load, e.g. water, the equilibrium temperature will be much lower, provided that the nail produces the same 20W.

    Questions:

    – Is the produced power always the same, namely 20W, so the equilirium temperature depends on the load? Or is the equilibrium temperature that is maintained moreless the same and so with higher load the “nail” produces more energy?

    – In the likely case in which the power is moreless the same and so the equilibrium temperature depends on the load, does the percentage of the time in SSM lower, raise or remain the same at lower temperature?

    Best regards,
    Marco.

    WARNING: To avoid feeling ancient…
    Do not attempt to discuss “Cold Fusion” with a twenty-something year-old.

    I tried to converse with a 20+ year-old city planner last week at Tai Chi class who did not know what “Cold Fusion” was, and never heard of Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann. (I felt a bit ancient that day).

    28 years is a long time to wait for a commercial “Cold Fusion” (LENR) product.

    Best of luck with your R&D.

  1111. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    During a while now I have been wondering how it can be that you are able to get nuclear reactions in a plasma, as described in your and Carl-Oskar Gullström latest paper. Circumstances seem similar to hot fusion, only the temperature is many orders of magnitudes less. Most metals you are using are in vapor in your reactor, so ‘solid state physics’ seems impossible.
    1. Do you still think reactions are taking place in the lattice of a metal or some metals?
    The circumstances of the reaction in the E-cat and the E-cat QX seem to differ a lot. In the past, you said that the reaction would stop if the nickel would melt. Now you are operating it in vaporized nickel.
    2. Do you still believe that both types of reactors are functioning on the same principles?
    I hope that you can answer this in general terms.
    3. If not, will you explain these apparent differences between the two reactor types during/after your demonstration in October?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY ELECTRICITY GENERATION USING LOW ENERGY THERMAL HEAT GENERATION AND THERMIONIC DEVICES
    Document Type and Number:
    United States Patent Application 20170213611 Kind Code: A1
    Abstract:
    A system and method are provided for generating electric power from relatively low temperature energy sources at efficiency levels not previously available. The present system and method employ recent advances in low energy nuclear reaction technology and thermionic/thermotunneling device technology first to generate heat and then to convert a substantial portion of the heat generated to usable electrical power. Heat may be generated by a LENR system employing nuclear reactions that occur in readily available materials at ambient temperatures without a high energy input requirement and do not produce radioactive byproducts. The heat generated by the LENR system may be transferred through one or more thermionic converter devices in heat transfer relationship with the LENR system to generate electric power.

    Can you explain what you mean by “5 sigma” in the context of the QX? As I recall it means different things if you are talking about reliability (less than one defect in about 4000 units) or the chance of a result occurring by accident (<1 in 3.5million). Are you cycling a QX on and off 3.5 million times? Is that what is needed to claim 5 sigma? Thanks.

I calculated the parameters that make me sure before accepting the risk to send E-Cats out of home to enjoy their freedom of life.

    Dear Andrea
    Your answer to Ing M. De Meo of 08.13.2017 at 2:29 PM is of great important to all energy consumers.
    The fact that no powerplants do produce energy but only transform the energy to a different form than originally, seems to be unknown for most of the environmentalists.
    By doing this most powerplants consume a lot of energy and partly transform great parts of the original energy to non-usable forms. Even the electricity itself is not energy. Electricity is only an energy carrier. We will not get a single watt from the wires without an input of more watts in the other end simultaneously.
    All forms of energy transportation do consume energy and thereby represents expensive losses.
    Energy are mainly consumed in small quantities, as by lightbulbs, room heaters, cars, machinery etc.
    That makes small energy sources very interesting. The grid and other transport may thereby be possible to be partly avoided. In this context is the E-catQX favorable like small batteries and solar power cells.
    The QX will be far more important for the mankind than the transistors and the LED-lamps and will, by the time, change the world more than these have done.

    Your measurement system described in the Gullstrom-Rossi paper is perfect. The circuit is very simple, the plasma is a conductor, as everybody knows, therefore placing a resistance with a known ohmage and measuring the voltage across it, the current is obtained by the Ohm equation, as well as the wattage.

  1157. Giorgio

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    In your paper “Nucleon polarizability and long range strong force from σI=2 meson exchange potential”, I have noted an interesting point on the role of electron as “carrier of the nucleon”:

    “A less probable alternative to the long range potential is if the e-N coupling
    in the special EM field environment would create a strong enough binding to
    compare an electron with a full nuclide. In this hypothesis, no constraints on
    the target nuclide are set, and nucleon transition to excited states in the target
    nuclide should be possible.
    In other words these two views deals with the electrons role. One is as a
    carrier of the nucleon and the other is as a trigger for a long range potential
    of the nucleon”.

    Now, in the Iwamura experiment the CaO layer is hundreds of atomic layers far from the area near the surface where the atoms to be transmuted are deposited or implanted. Therefore, it is important to find a mechanism that explains the action at a distance and the role of CaO, the breaking of the Coulomb barrier and the usual absence of intense nuclear radiation typical of the LENR.

    An interesting hypothesis might arise from considering the formation of ultra-dense deuterium near the calcium oxide layer, where the high difference in work function between Pd and CaO favors the formation of a dense electron layer (SEL).

    Ultra-dense deuterium “atoms” are picometric structures, formed by a deuteron and an electron, that can easily migrate to the area where the nuclei to be transmuted (Cs or Sr) have been implanted. In this case the electrons can be seen as the “carriers” of the deuterons. A quite similar concept has been proposed by G. Bettini in the JONP paper “How can 30% of nickel in Rossi’s reactor be transmuted into copper?”

    This hypothesis seems to me more realistic than the hypothesis of formation of di-neutrons from a nuclear capture of the electron, considering that the neutron mass is much higher than the sum of proton and electron masses.
    Ultra-dense deuterium “mini-atoms”, having no charge but a relatively “long range” high magnetic momentum, according to this hypothesis, may be considered good candidates as the very cause of the transmutation of Cs in Pr and Sr in Mo.

    The journalist Steven Greer says on his blog, disclosure project:
    “We believe … there’s a fellow name Rossi, in Italy, who has a device that generates apparently overunity excess energy and heat, although no one knows the mechanism and action. He’s keeping it a trade secret. Very big, and probably fatal, fatal error.
    “And so I would say, yes, there are people out there who are working on it, some who I believe have. I have a friend at Stanford University who knows a man at the National Security Agency who confided that they are tracking what Rossi is doing very carefully, which indicates to me that where there’s smoke, there’s fire”.

    I am not as much convinced. Besides, I am confused: to charge the batteries you need to plug them to the grid. The electric energy that you draw from the grid comes from the power plants. The power plants use mostly hydrocarbons. Add the fact that the efficiency of the entire cycle of processes to charge the batteries is low and tell me: what’s the point? What’s the advantage for the environment, if any? Forgot to say: the taxpayer will pay for the unavoidable low efficiency of this system.

    Dear Andrea,
    Suppose, like a burned out light bulb, that one of the possible failure modes of a single QX was an “open circuit” (across what you described as the zero-resistance plasma-like region):
    would that particular failure mode cause the failure of the entire cluster, given the way that you’re thinking of designing it?
    Thanks, WaltC

  1177. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    I don’t think so.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1178. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Just a few questions, if you allow me.
    1. For the demo in October you have been testing the E-cat QX20 cluster for some time now. Are you satisfied with their multiple performance?
    2. You have said that the E-cat QX has a very low resistance. From control point of view I would assume that you operate a cluster with all QX’s in series. I that assumption correct?
    3. Is reaching 5 sigma essential for the demonstration?
    4. Is cluster testing a part of the 5 sigma test?
    I hope you and your team can soon selebrate the succesful finish of the 5 sigma test!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea,

    In my previous question, I meant the power consumption compared to when only one QX was being operated by the control system.

    Thank you!

    Frank

  1181. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Depends on many factors that now I cannot explain.
    In general, the answer is no.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  1182. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the power consumption of the control system affected when you combine multiple E-Cat QX units together (you have mentioned you can run 100 QXs from one controller)?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Science prescripts that LENR cannot exist.

  1185. Andrea Rossi

    Alain:
    Science is a descriptive enterprise, not a prescrictive one. If my effect has been replicated, as it has, it is not scientifically correct to say that LENR cannot exist.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    This is a Video about Additive Printing of metal parts.

    In this video the parts that are manufactured are for use in Gas Turbines.

    Perhaps they could also be used in Supercritical CO2 Turbines as well.

  1189. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You mentioned that you were working on reducing the power consumption of the control system.

    At the upcoming demonstration, would it be possible to measure and reveal the power consumption of the control system in a way that does not reveal any data that you want to keep confidential?

    Many thanks,

    Great comment to answer to Anonymous about Symmetry.
    You have the gift to make simple very complex issues.

  1192. Andrea Rossi

    Greg:
    I just made analogies, but attention, they are very superficial, just to supply a model of something that expressed rigorously is too complicated to be understood by persons that do not have a university background of Physics. Such models can be misleading.

  1194. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Based on your comment to Prof about the resistance of the E-Cat QX, would it be accurate to say that the E-Cat QX is a superconductor?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  1195. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No.
    Superconductivity is a completely different thing.
    Obviously my “zero” was not absolute, it was jargon for good conductor ( otherwise I wouldn’t write it in letters). I just wanted to say that it is a good conductor, like copper, so that its resistance ( that cannot be R = 0 ) does not affect the circuit.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1196. Rick

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Can you explain in your way a model how the Higgs field breaks the symmetry and gives mass to elementary particles?
    You did it already years ago, but I forgot and have to explain to young kids
    Thanks if you can help

  1197. Andrea Rossi

    Rick:
    Tom Conover has reminded me what I wrote in past ( I had forgot ).
    Let me try something maybe simpler.
    Imagine a lake inside a big sphere wherein vacuum has been made.
    Inside these sphere you have, floating upon the surface of the lake, sailboats. Some of the boats have big sails, some no sails at all ( forgot them at home), some small sails.
    Until there is the vacuum and perfect still, you have a perfect symmetry, every boat moves as every one else, same speed, same energy. Symmetry!
    Now imagine this: for some reasons ( for example the wrath of gods ) air enters in the sphere, vacuum is lost and physical effects are introduced, like differences of temperature, pressure, electricity. All symmetries are broken and every break of a symmetry generates particular fields, like electromagnetic field, temperature field, pressure field…and Higgs field. Every field gives birth to forces, for example temperature makes hot air go up, cold air go down, e.m. makes positive charges go one way, negative the opposite, lower pressure makes objects get loose, high pressure makes objects get closer, etc. The Higgs makes the small sailed boats don’t give a dam about it, the big sailed boats get stuck in it, becoming massive, because they now are subject to the wind and “feel” their mass.
    Put this in analogy with electromagnetic fields , strong force fields, weak force fields and gravitational fields with the elementary particles and remember that these models are very superficial. Obviously “temperature fields” do not exist, as well as pressure fields and, most of all, they do not generate what in Physics is rigorously considered a “force”. But I hope the model can help to understand what is Simmetry and what means to break a Simmetry and why it is so important. In nuclear Physics we have four fudsamental fields that when their symmetry is broken work as follows::
    electromagnetic field, affects positive e.p. one way, negative the opposite
    gravitational field, affect every e.p. the same way
    strong interactions field: affects quarks and gluons
    weak interactions field, affects all the fermions of the standard model and the Higgs boson
    Should the symmetries not get broken, life in this Universe would be very boring. Like LENR without me. I am a simmetry breaker ( and not only symmetries).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:

    @ Rick (I thought I should review too, so here is what I found.)

    Here are two of Andrea’s comments on symmetry and mass for you.

    Jackson Sweeney:
    You must make a distinction between Global Symmetry and Local Symmetry.
    The G.S. is shown uniformly, everywhere, at the same time and makes
    us aware of interactions on course, but its role is passive, it does
    not bring new forces in the fields.
    L.S. shows up separately, at every point and leads to new forces:
    without it the Universe as it is could not exist, because e.p. would
    remain as they are, without interactions: the life ( if any) would
    be very boring. Master in local symmetry breaking is the Higgs
    field, that with its waves ( Higgs Bosons) makes a storm in the
    Universe Ocean, and this storm makes a mess through the fields of
    the elementary particles fiving mass to some of them, rupturing
    symmetries around…imagine the perfest symmetry of a cloud of black
    ink cenospheres be turned into the Guernica of Picasso ! That’s life !

    Minh:
    I do not remember which model I described, but let’s try this, the
    same of before or not as it might be: think to an empty tube filled
    by clean and calm water: we’ll call it “value zero tube”, because
    the water is clean and calm, there is nothing inside except the
    water molecules. If you distribute grains of nanometric metal powder
    uniformly on the surface of this water, the grains will sink
    uniformly and symmetrically from the top to the bottom of the tube.
    This is the model of a zero value field in vacuum through which
    elementary particles pass through without breaking any symmetry,
    without changing their status.
    Now imagine to repeat the experiment in the same tube, but this time
    with strong waves inside that pervade the volume of the water inside
    the tube. This is the model of the Higgs field: now the tube has not
    zero value, because now the water is not calm, the waves build up a
    “value”. Repeat the experiment of before with the same powder, and
    you’ll see that this time the grains do not sink uniformly, but they
    “break the symmetry”, they are slowed down by the opposing waves,
    they crash against each other, they make up bigger grains adhering
    to each other: in a word, they “get mass”. As we said, the tube with
    wavery water, in this case, is the model of the Higgs field, while
    the waves are the models of the Higgs Bosons that arise from the
    Higgs field.

    If elemental particles consist of waves in fields, just like wifi, then possibly the Higgs Bosons are the wifi-routers.
    But what information are they transmitting ? Is there a time or place where the information is going or where it comes from ?
    Can we receive or send information via the Higgs Bosons ?

    Dear Andrea,
    What I was trying to suggest when I indicated that GE could be helpful to your program, is that they have constructed the means to produce large quantities of small alumina tubes that are sealed and undergo high temperatures that are capable of thousands of hours of use. I assume that they use an automated line for their production. They may be able to either aid you in the assembly of your production line, or perhaps construct your device in large quantities with a high degree of quality control.
    Product assurance regards.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Your measurement system to define the wattage in the circuit of the E-Cat QX, made by a power source plus 2 resistances is correct:
    https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/measuring-resistance-in-circuit-and-out/
    In pag. 5 is drawn exactly the schematic of your circuit.
    If the E-Cat has no resistance, the circuit becomes just a circuit with one resistance.
    Godspeed

  1211. Andrea Rossi

    Electric Engineer:
    Correct.

  1212. Dear Andrea.
    If you have ever watched the live Royal Institution Christmas lectures you will be convinced that they are very professional in their visual presentation and have a gift for making difficult concepts simple to understand and to show fascinating and stimulating demonstrations with their apparatus.

    It occurs to me that you may find it very useful to approach them for ideas for your October 2017 Qx demonstration. It is possible that you and your team may overlook some wonderful aspect of presentation that will really enhance your show.

    They have had so much experience with this type of thing that their participation/advice would, I’m sure, be very valuable to you. Naturally ,there are very good people in the USA too and extra input will help you to provide a first class presentation that everyone will understand easily throughout the English-speaking world. A lot is riding on this event.

    I hope this thought has been helpful. Best wishes for the future. Jean Pierre

    First of all, congratulations for your work, I’ve been following this story for six years now and I hope it’s the energy revolution I dream of.
    A question, with a new, cheap source of energy, is not the risk that we will considerably increase the thermal energy released into the environment?
    Of course, with new energy limits, there will also be applications to overcome this.
    Or are my expectations too high and your invention will not be so life-changing?
    Best Regards.

  1215. Andrea Rossi

    The heat is produced where and when it is necessary, independently from the heat source. Our source does not produce carbon dioxyde and other pollutants, though.
