  4. Andrea,
    I believe you misinterpreted something. Which equation demonstrates the speed of light is not constant in vacuum? Based on the above experimental proposal, I just presented the possibility that the speed of light could decay under the influence of an electrostatic potential. When there is an electrostatic potential present, you do not have clear (absence of fields) vacuum conditions.

    Kind Regards

  5. Andrea Rossi

    Ioannis:
    The speed of light in vacuum is constant, independently from the presence of other fields.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    The problems you are working to solve with the Swedish factory: are they more technical, financial, or legal — at the moment?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  7. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The matter of the fact is that we do not have problems at all.

    From a last month’s article inside E-cat World site, I found this nice comment about Andrea from Ophelia Rump (a reader particularly versed in scientific topics); the comment was an answer to another somewhat rude post and grabbed a record-breaking approval rate by readers:

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/06/14/report-on-preliminary-findings-from-e-cat-quarkx-testing-posted-on-ecat-com/#comment-2730681376

    “Get a grip on yourself, he is an eccentric old researcher with a blog and a chat thread, he talks to people who are interested when he feels like it. He is not a performing chimp entertaining your passions for profit. Have you not yet realized that he does not give a fig or a farthing what other people think unless they are supportive of him as a human being?”

    Very nice and intense, in this complex story experience and intuition regarding human nature tells perhaps more than other cold-hearted scientific proofs, as another reader said sometimes ago.

    “Old researcher” is way off, in my opinion, this daily schedule:

    “from 6 am to 7 am I study Physics
    from 7.30 am to 5 pm QuarkX and patents
    from 5 pm to 7 pm litigation
    From 7 pm to 8 pm exercise”

    is tailored to an enthusiast beginner!

    moreover, Andrea passes over his most productive phase of sleeping time, from 4am to 6am, when he’s racked and annoyed in the bed with the permanent revolution

    Orsobubu:
    Permanent sympathysing, thanks. Same to Ophelia Rump.

  10. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    I am an aeronautical engineer, so my interest in theoretical physics is that of a layman.
    I note that the speed of light is known to vary according to the medium through which it travels – hence my spectacles work to improve my sight.
    I note that theoretical physicists have invented Dark Matter (and Dark Energy for that matter) to help explain the observed movements of the galaxies.
    It seems entirely plausible that the speed of light through space might just be affected by the density (possibly variable) of the local Dark Matter, so C = 3*10^8 m/s might just be the speed of light near Earth in the ‘here and now’
    regards,
    Greg Leonard

  11. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    This is an assumption, since the Dark Matter remains an assumption. Somebody used it recently to make energy in a coffee pot, though, therefore now I am confused.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  12. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    can you explain how you chose Sweden as Europe’s ECat manufacturing fab.
    It is a matter of labor cost or workers efficency or tecnological environment or politics or financial opportunity.
    Do you have some idea on how many labors will be employed!
    Best Regards,Giuseppe

  13. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    I chosen Sweden for the top level of our team there and for the fact that we got the authorization to work as well as we got it in the USA.
    If you are a worker and make jobs and respect the law these Countries help you.
    Warm Regards,

  16. Hi Andrea,
    Could you please point to me what is exactly fundamentally wrong in regards to my claims?

    Thanks
    Ioannis

  17. Andrea Rossi

    Ioannis:
    the fundamental mistake of your equations is that from what you write the speed of light in the vacuum is not constant.

  18. Renzo

    dear dr. Rossi
    so have Leonardo Corporation together with Hydrofusion already in preparation the factory building in Sweden ?

    my regards
    Renzo

  19. Andrea Rossi

    Renzo:
    Yes. We will have two factories to manufacture the E-Cats, one in the USA and one in Sweden.
    Warm Regards,

  20. Maurizio

    Dear Andrea:
    The difference between you and your competitors that now complain that you have burnt them is very simple: you work, they talk. I am of the Italian town of Milan, where you are born and where you stayed before emigrating in the USA, so you too are Milanese: in Milan, as you know, we say this to the guys like them: ” Per ti ghe vor l’oli de gumbet” ; translation from Milanese to English: “you need lubricant for the articulations of your arms”.
    Ciao,
    Maurizio

  24. Hi Andrea,
    First of all thanks for the comment! Well, I would agree with you when Physics may one day experimentally prove the below are not true:
    a) Einstein’s postulate says “The speed of light in free space has the same value c in all inertial frames of reference.”. Question: He speaks about free space, right? So what happens with the speed of light when the medium is influenced by a local intense electromagnetic field density? Actually, these special conditions are poorly or not even explored.
    b) Have we ever measured the propagation speed of light under intense electromagnetic field intensities? I have never heard something like that since today Physics supports that just Gravity may influence the propagation of a photon through a frequency shift (and not over a variable speed since they assume is constant but never proved)
    c) Another example: Let us assume a Compton Scattering process. The outcome of such process is a scattered photon with reduced frequency and a deflected electron. The speed of light is c because the experiment measures the scattered angle post interaction (far away from electron’s field) and without having a clue of what is going on in the meantime (during the interaction).This means that if the speed of light varies (decays) during the interaction, the Compton Scattering experiment has no indication about it.

    In case photon’s speed decays during the interaction that means it acquires a reduced momentum. Then when it is far away from the interacting field, the photon speed recovers to c by keeping its reduced momentum (while in field) that makes the photon to re-adjust its frequency to a lower than the initial.

    i) The simplest way to experimentally verify the above is over the electrostatic deflection experiment that will catch the deviation on the act. Here we speak about an electromagnetic medium that influences the local speed of light while an electron is being accelerated inside a field.
    ii) Another proposal would be (see my work with detailed calculations) a Michelson Interferometer that uses a very stable but variable Laser output. By increasing the power output, the local speed of light is expected to decay in the interference region that will be measured as RED SHIFT over a very accurate Wavelength Measuring Equipment.

    There are much more arguments in regards to a non constant speed of light on quantum level. The problem is who will have the courage to conduct what I proposed above. Research or University Labs or even High School Labs have already the equipment. It is required just to pay attention to the details of the experiment that makes all the difference.

    With the dimensions of the experiment I propose, a 35KV potential will give about 1 cm deviation from the expected Relativistic deflection which is about 7%. When the electron exits the field it has again the expected Relativistic Energy (inside the field is always less), which also agrees with my work.

    Kind Regards

    Ioannis:
    I have nothing to add to what I said: for me your position is foundamentally wrong.

  26. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1) How many individual Quark X’s have been built so far that have proven to operate satisfactorily?

    2) What’s the longest length of time a single Quark X has ran continuously?

    3) How many Quark X’s do you have have running at the same time on a daily basis?

    4) What is the general temperature range of a Quark X when configured to produce maximum electrical production?

    5) Do you think that a factory to produce Quark’s could fit into a shipping container that you could then sell? For example, you feed components (fuel, tubes, wires, electrodes, etc) down one end, a line of robots do the assembly, and completed Quark’s come out the other end?

    6) If the above is possible, could a small, compact Quark “factory” actually be a product in and of itself?

    I would like to see the Quark X be mass manufactured by the billions in the shortest period of time possible. For this to happen, I think that production must be distributed across the world. You could begin by building one plant and manufacture thousands of Quarks. Then, after customers test out the first products, you could offer the plants for sale.

    If you offer the plants for sale at a price no one can beat, then obviously no one will be able to come up with copy cat reactors they can produce at a lower price.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  28. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    That is great news about producing industrial E-Cats in the US factory.
    Is this accomplished through manual labor or robotics?
    Congratulations!
    Brokeeper

  29. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Manual labour, so far, but we are working very hard to complete our production capacity with the help of ABB.
    I really hope we will have our robotized lines at least installed by the end of the year. I really hope, but there are problems to be resolved. A lot of work has still to be done.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  30. D.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Somebody is accusing you to have blocked the R&D of LENR with your activity.
    What do you answer, if anything ?

  31. Andrea Rossi

    D.:
    It is true exactly the contrary.
    Not only I did not put obstacles to the R&D of our competitors, but our hard work has generated a scientific environment that has opened the doors also to them.
    Before the event of January 2011, when we introduced our E-Cat prototype together with Prof Focardi of the University of Bologna, the LENR people was confined in a village of zombies and the LENR were globally considered less than zero. No one was financing any serious R&D in the field.
    After my work LENR got a tremendous momentum that initiated serious R&D by concerns like Volvo, Elforsk, Mitsubishi, NASA, MIT etc etc etc. in all the world, obtaining the attention of the highest echelons of the DOE and the DOD in the United States of America, where before my work when somebody tried to introduce the concept of LENR the reaction has been similar to the reaction of Dracula in front of crucifix and garlic.
    Without hypocrisy and false modesty I claim that without our work, our tests, our plants, without my extremely difficult work, in which I am leaving years of my life and part of my health working and studying an average of 12 hours per day now and 16 to 18 hours per day ( nights included) during the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat, without all this the LENR would be still a village of zombies. With all respect, this is my sincere opinion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  32. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you give us an update on the status of your work on the different versions of the E-Cat.

    a) How is work going with the 1MW E-Cat plants?
    b) Do you have multiple customers with orders in for the 1MW E-Cat plants (low temperature)?
    c) How is work going with the QuarkX?
    d) Is the QuarkX mature enough to be incorporated into industrial plants?
    e) Do you have any customers with orders in for QuarkX plants?
    f) What is the status of having a factory or factories ready to produce your products?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  33. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    a) Well
    b) Yes
    c) still very promising
    d) not yet
    e) pre orders
    f) in the USA we are producing industrial; in Sweden we are preparing the factory

  36. Susy

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    It is clear that your 1 year test with your 1 MW E-Cat is gone well, apart differences of evaluations due to commercial issues. In few years you made a historic step, but not all have understood this already. They will understand this not thanks to new tests, but only to your E-Cats in the market, like happened with the personal computers. You are totally right to focus on the production, not on further tests. Your strategy will prevail.
    Thank you for your enormous work.

    Dr. Rossi, in your Post to Jacky July 22 at 6:15AM
    You said: a foundation to help the needs of children with cancer.
    I have been reading about your desire to help children with cancer for years but I have said nothing to you., because you do not have any money yet.
    But your desire to set p a foundation is very complex. How are to going to find the children ?
    I hope you don’t intend to give the parents a Gift to pay for the treatment.
    If you give a person a Gift of more than $14,000 you pay the IRS a 35% Gift Tax of everything over that amount. Also there is a lifetime limit on the amount of money you can give as a tax free Gift.
    It is 5.4 million. Check out this information with a Tax expert.
    I am a layman, with a High School education, but I am very interested in cancer, and cancer research.
    In the last 7 years I have exchanged over 10,000 emails with Doctors and others interested in cancer.
    I have a lot of suggestions on how you should spend your money.
    The first two are donate to Saint jude Children’s Research Hospital/
    No patent ever receives a Bill from Saint Jude.
    Another one is CHOP. Children’s Hospital of Phriladeliph. They are doing great work.
    These donations are Tax Deductible, which means you pay Zero Income Tax on the amount of money you donate. And you will be in the 39% Tax Bracket.
    I have a lot of suggestions, let me know if I sound good to you.
    I would like to know what you think about the foundation.

  47. Andrea Rossi

    Robert Curto:
    This issue is one of the pillars of my engagement in all this work and I want real results from it. It is a vow. I do not think that the best way to act in this sense is give the money to organizations, because the risk is that most of the money goes to pay the structure of such organizations instead of to go to the subjects we want to help. We have a completely different idea about how to obtain the due results, without intermediaries.
    Thank you for the suggestions, though.
    Warm Regards,

  56. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    As regards the ECat QuarkX R&D, do you feel that you have moved from the research phase and more into development? With the precision tools required to construct the ECat QuarkX, does ABB currently have this machinery or will they need to invent and make a custom new tooling for robotic assembly? Motorola’s Six Sigma Program refers to product quality, 3 defects allowed per million final units produced. Your five sigma approach to manufacturing yield of a working QuarkX cell unit more resembles Intel’s chip yield targets which is less than 100%. Intel is looking for more than 50% yield on a new chip design process. Are you being too tough on yourself to expect 5 sigma QuarkX operating cells, or do I miss understand your product performance objective?

    God speed on you difficult tasks.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  57. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G. Zavela:

  58. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    since you started to work on the E-Cat, let say after Bologna demonstration in 2011, the composition or the recipe of the fuel or the way to apply it is changed?

    After the decision of the Court on the notion to dismiss it seems to most of us that a settlement could be the best solution. What do you think ?
    Regards,
    Jacky

  62. Andrea Rossi

    Jacky:
    I am a scientist and an industrialist, my time is necessary to make jobs, clean and economically convenient energy, a foundation to help the needs of children who have cancer, therefore all that counts to me are results and facts, not chatters.
    The matter of the fact is that to make a settlement it takes two parties.
    War is the logic continuation of a relationship when other means are no more possible ( Von Clausevitz ) : symmetrically, diplomacy is the logic continuation of war when other means return to be possible.
    I absolutely do not like war, but if I have to do it, I do. Unfortunately, in this world freedom is not for free.

  71. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,
    We are pleased to hear that your work continues to do well and show promise. The ability to cycle the QuarkX on and off during the day is one of the operational condition issues that you mentioned earlier, and I can easily imagine that it may well be one of the “specific success” functions required for the certification process.

    You have spoken of the year of the cat being 2016 recently. May I ask then, please? “Are you convinced right now that you will achieve certification for the QuarkX sometime prior to April of 2017?”

    Warm regards,
    Tom

  72. Andrea Rossi

    I hope, but this issue does not depend only from me. For the industrial applications we’ll not have problems, though.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    How has the QuarkX been performing this week?

    Are further tests being performed (varying the temperature, power output etc.) or is it operating at a constant power level?

    Is the QuarkX producing light during the current tests?

    When will the test schedule be completed?

    Dear Andrea,
    I have just a simple question: I know that the standard E-cat plant can produce steam just over 100 C, but can you indicate to what maximum temperature steam can be produced if the steam system would be suitable for it? Obviously I am not talking about the EcatX or the QuarkX.
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  91. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    The E-Cat of the type that has been operated during the 1 year test is designed for low temperature steam. To get higher temperatures it is necessary the design used in the high temperature reactors.

    Dear Andrea,

    If each Quark does not require a large space, then I think that one sheet of Quarks could produce hundreds of times more electricity than a solar panel of the same size during peak solar radiance.

    A few facts (approximate numbers).

    1 – The most efficient solar panel that is not used for concentrated solar collection is approximately 22% efficient. For fairness, let’s say by the end of this year that may increase to 25%.

    2 – During peak hours of the day when there are no clouds the earth receives approximately 1000 watts per square meter.

    3 – This would mean that a typical solar panel of one meter squared might produce 250 watts for a few hours a day, lesser output the rest of the day, and no output at night.

    4 – Although I found a solar panel online that was 33mm thick (a little thicker than the Quark is long).

    In absolute worst case, in which each Quark needed one hundred square millimeters of space, ten thousand Quarks could fit in a single meter sized slab. If each of these Quarks produced five watts of electricity (ignoring heat and light output), that would mean an output of 50,000 watts or 50 kilowatts.

    50,000 watts divided by 250 watts (the peak output of a solar panel of one meter square) is 200.

    So to equal the output of a single slab of Quarks, you would need at minimum 200 solar panels of the same area that magically could produce the same amount of power 24 hours a day and during any weather conditions.

    Hence, the Quark — once the output is confirmed via rigorous testing by multiple third parties — could potentially be far superior by orders of magnitude to solar power.

    And I think that one reason why some parties are attacking you so vigorously may be due to their defense of the renewable industry.

    On a personal level I’m a Christian, and I do not believe in social Darwinism — that only the fittest should be allowed to survive and the disadvantaged (poor, weak, diseased, depressed) should be allowed to die without any consideration. However, technologically speaking, I lean heavily towards technological Darwinism. If the Quark technology turns out to be superior to photovoltaic technology, then the Quark should flourish and solar should be allowed to fade away.

    PS: The above analysis (although it may be incorrect due to the fact I’m unsure how closely the Quark’s can be placed together) doesn’t even factor in the advantages of the Quark in terms of portability.

    Dear Andrea,

    Let me please rephrase my question.

    If you wanted to setup an array of of Quarks in a flat plane of one square meter, how much distance between the center axis of each Quark (right down the center of the reactor) would be required?

    I understand that there would be wires coming from each end of the Quark so there would need to be additional circuitry, control boxes, and so fourth.

    Thank you.

    Dear Andrea,

    For 2016 to be the year of the E-Cat, I think we would need:

    1. E-Cat plants working in the real world (not under NDA)
    2. Customers happy to openly report about successful operations and significant cost savings (again not under NDA).
    3. Some video of your plants in operation.

    Which of the above do you hope to achieve in 2016?

    Dear Andrea,

    1) What is the diameter of the entire setup that is required for one individual Quark X to produce electricity directly? As a hypothetical example, a 1mm diameter reactor tube with a 3mm diameter shield around it.

    2) What number of Quark X’s producing electricity directly could hypothetically fit into a given area of space? For example, one square meter of flat surface?

    3) For example, there are a million square millimeters in a meter. If a single quark and apparatus to produce electrical power required four square millimeters of space, that would mean 250,000 Quarks could fit into one meter. If more space was required between Quarks, we could claim eight square millimeters of space. That would mean 125,000 Quarks could fit in one square meter of flat space. If we were to be very conservative and claim that a Quark could produce 5% electricity (not 20%) or five watts each, that would mean a panel of Quarks could produce 625,000 watts or 625 kilowatts.

    Do you think this analysis is plausible for an eventual product?

    Do you think it is optimistic or conservative?

    Sincerely,
    Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,
    I do not know it this question has been asked before, but I hope you are willing to answer:
    You spend a lot of time in the 1MW plant during the test. You were checking the ‘symphony of the bubbles’. Did you mainly do that to optimize and adjust the plant to achieve the best possible COP?
    1. In other words, if you hadn’t been there every night, would the plant then have been less efficient, e.g. a lower COP?
    2. If your answer is ‘yes’, do you think a more sophisticated control system could replace you and are you working on that?
    Thanks for answering our questions.

    Dear Andrea Rossi:

    Your tests of the E-Cat show that it can operate for > 6 months without refueling at commercial power levels of up to 1 MW thermal with an energy gain > 30(thermal out Vs electrical in). One characteristic that has not been demonstrated is the ability to cycle the E-Cat on and off, or modulate the power level while maintaining a reasonable level of efficiency.

    While your short term goal of developing a product for central heating applications may require only a limited ability to either fully modulate the power level or turn the system on and off, for most applications, the ability to either fully modulate the power level or cycle the system on and off perhaps up to 1000 times per year would be extremely useful. Without such capability, given variable heat loads associated with heat applications, a significant energy storage capability will be needed. Certainly, if the E-Cat X were used in place of an oil burner in a home heating system, the ability to cycle it on and off would be essential.

    My questions are:

    1. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat can be cycled on and off repeated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    2. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat X can be cycled on and off repeated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    3. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat power level can be fully modulated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    4. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat X power level can be fully modulated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    While I realize you may need to keep this type of performance data private, even yes/no answers to these questions will give your followers some idea of what has been achieved in this area.

    Dear Andrea,
    I must underline 2 facts, apart other considerations that I know you can’t answer to:

    Fact #1 – The Rossi Effect has been replicated and produced high levels of excess heat.

    Fact #2 – Although multiple parties across the globe have replicated the Rossi Effect, for every one highly successful replicate (Parkhomov, N.Stepanov, Songsheng Jiang, possibly Tom Conover, Me356, etc) there are many more replications that produce little to no excess heat.

    When do you think everybody will be able to reproduce your effect, even if not particularly skilled in the art ?

    Dear Andrea,
    about evolutionism, i send you a little novel i wrote in 2012 on 22 passi. I hope you like.
    Il pianeta delle macchine.
    Un giorno su uno strano pianeta non molto distante dal nostro apparve la vita, ma non la vita come la conosciamo noi, in forma biologica, ma in forma meccanica. Cioè apparvero esseri meccanici costituiti di acciaio, leve, motori a combustione, fili, tubi dell’olio, etc. Insomma un mondo di macchine. C’erano macchine molto semplici con funzioni basilari elementari come produrre calore o forza motrice e macchine molto più complesse che potevano fare cose meravigliose, come pensare, volare, trasmettere suoni ed immagini a distanza, etc. Questo mondo aveva delle religioni e degli scritti antichissimi in cui si parlava di un Dio macchina che aveva creato gli esseri macchina a sua immagine e somiglianza, ed aveva dato loro anche la capacità di riprodursi, e che bisognava seguire le dieci tavole della legge, cioè non avrai altra macchina fuori di me, non rubare l’olio lubrificante altrui, etc. Ma la scienza su questo pianeta progrediva, e molte macchine tra le più sapienti ed evolute, con più memoria (RAM) più intelligenza (processori di ultima generazione) e capacità di progettare altre macchine (software evoluto), cominciarono a porsi il problema di come fosse apparsa la prima macchina sul pianeta. Se c’era stata una creazione da parte di un Dio oppure la vita delle macchine era nata dal caso. Molti furono tacciati di eresia dai sacerdoti del Dio macchina, e fusi al rogo degli altiforni, perché avevano osato contraddire la Creazione e gli scritti religiosi. Ma gli scienziati macchina più testardi elaborarono la teoria della evoluzione delle macchine, perché nel frattempo l’archeologia e la storia avevano trovato degli antichi reperti meccanici, resti delle prime forme di vita primitiva, e cosa sorprendente queste macchine primitive funzionavano con lo stesso principio di quelle moderne. Allora si teorizzò che per caso in un tempo lontano il minerale ferro che stava nelle viscere del pianeta si fosse liberato delle impurità, poi si fosse (sempre da solo e per caso) fuso in forme strane di vita come cilindri e pistoni, che poi milioni di anni dopo si sarebbero incontrati, e infilati l’uno dentro l’altro, per un movimento possibile. Molti milioni di anni dopo ci fu l’incontro (sempre casuale) con il carburante petrolio che si era posizionato in un serbatoio sempre casualmente formatosi in milioni di anni di cristallizzazione nelle immediate vicinanze. Poi erano nati da lunghissimi processi evolutivi separati e casuali, il carburatore, la pompa, la candela, l’albero di trasmissione del moto, la cinghia dentata in gomma e la puleggia, etc. E poi dopo svariati milioni di anni, di eventi catastrofici planetari, di tempeste di meteoriti, di numerosi enormi eventi sismici, sempre per caso e progressivamente tutti i pezzi erano andati al posto giusto, il cilindro ed il pistone, furono messi in un blocco motore, vicino alla candela, e così via tutti gli altri pezzi, dalla combustione all’alternatore all’impianto elettrico. Era nata la macchina con il motore a combustione termico. Poi in molti milioni di anni la macchina motore si era molto evoluta, aveva molti più cavalli rispetto all’esemplare primordiale grazie sempre al caso si erano evolute tutte le parti meccaniche del motore, erano nate candele di nuova generazione da una nuova millenaria cristallizzazione di ceramiche, si erano costituite casualmente per reazioni iterative delle nuove leghe metalliche per i cilindri ed i pistoni, poi era nata da un fulmine globulare la iniezione elettronica del carburante, etc. La teoria della evoluzione soppiantò nel pensiero corrente, quella della creazione, e diventò quella maggioritaria, il Maistream. Ma poi qualcuno che non credeva al Dio macchina e che non credeva neanche a tutta questa infinita serie di eventi casuali, si mise a fare degli esperimenti sui pistoni e cilindri. E si accorse che per quanto provasse a lasciare alle intemperie ed al caso ciottoli di minerale ferroso al massimo otteneva delle pietre bucate, o delle pietre levigate, ma la probabilità che il caso creasse separatamente un cilindro di acciaio levigato ed un pistone di acciaio levigato perfettamente a misura che uno potesse produrre lavoro utile uno dentro l’altro era infinitesima. Enunciò pubblicamente la propria teoria che una intelligenza potesse aver creato cilindro e pistone in tali forme e per uno scopo, e fu attaccato ferocemente da tutti gli evoluzionisti del Mainstream che dicevano che no, che allora si ricadeva nelle credenze religiose antiquate del Dio macchina, e contemporaneamente anche dagli altri sacerdoti del Dio macchina, che dicevano che non bisognava né studiare né fare esperimenti, poiché la creazione era descritta chiaramente nei loro testi religiosi, e che bisognava credere in quelli ciecamente e basta, dogmaticamente. Insomma il povero scienziato macchina che voleva sperimentare per capire, fu schiacciato da entrambi gli schieramenti, solo perché aveva osato indagare, e vera o falsa che fosse la sua idea, recava con sé il peccato originale di tutte le macchine, cioè voi non siete nate per pensare, a pensare ci pensiamo noi che sappiamo e possiamo, tu non sei un nostro pari, non sei peer reviewed. Fu rinchiuso nelle caverne segrete della regione degli esseri del motociclo, i terribili Honda, a regime di benzina putrida ed antigelo: unica concessione un pistone ed un cilindro con cui lambiccarsi la centralina e continuare a chiedersi: ma come è stato possibile che…

    Ogni riferimento a persone e fatti accaduti è puramente casuale.

    Planet of the machines.
    One day on a strange planet appeared not far from our life, but not life as we know it, in organic form, but in a mechanical form. So appeared mechanical beings made of steel, levers, combustion engines, wire, oil pipes, etc. In short, a world of machines. There were very simple machines with elementary basic functions such as producing heat or motive power and a lot more complex machines that could do wonderful things, how to think, to fly, to transmit sounds and images at a distance, etc.This world had religions and ancient writings that spoke of a God machine that had created the machine beings in his image and likeness, and had given them the ability to reproduce, and they had to follow the ten tables of the law, that is, you will have no other machine out of me, do not steal other people’s lubricating oil, etc. But the science on this planet progressed, and many machines of the most wise and evolved with more memory (RAM) more intelligence (the latest generation of processors) and ability to design other machines (advanced software), they began to consider the problem of how he appeared the first car on the planet. If there had been a creation by a God or life of the machines he was born by chance. Many were accused of heresy by the priests of the God machine, blast furnace and melted at the stake, because they had dared to contradict the creation and religious writings. But the most stubborn machine scientists worked out the theory of evolution of the machines, because in the meantime the archeology and history of the ancient mechanical artifacts were found, the remains of the earliest forms of primitive life, and amazing thing these primitive machines were working with the same principle modern ones. Then he theorized that by chance in a distant time the iron ore that was in the bowels of the planet had been freed of impurities, then it (always alone and by chance) fused into strange life forms such as cylinders and pistons, which then millions of years after they met, and they inserted one inside the other, for a possible movement. Many millions of years later there was a meeting (always random) with fuel oil that was placed in a tank always randomly formed over millions of years of crystallization in the immediate vicinity. Then they were born from long separate evolutionary processes and random, the carburetor, the pump, the candle, the shaft for transmitting motion, the rubber toothed belt and the pulley, etc. And then after several million years of planetary catastrophic events, meteor storms, numerous huge seismic events, always by chance and gradually all the pieces had gone to the right place, the cylinder and the piston, they were put into an engine block , near the spark plug, and so on all the other pieces, from the combustion to the alternator to the electrical system. He was born the machine with the thermal combustion engine. Then in many millions of years the motor car had very advanced, had many more horses than ever thanks to the primordial exemplary case had evolved all the mechanical parts of the engine, were born new generation candles from a new millenarian crystallization of ceramics , they had formed randomly for iterative reactions of new metal alloys for cylinders and pistons, then was born of the ball lightning, electronic fuel injection, etc. The theory of evolution supplanted in current thinking, that of creation, and became the majority, the Maistream. But then someone who did not believe in God, and that the machine does not even believe in all this endless series of random events, began to experiment on the pistons and cylinders. And he noticed that as he tried to leave to the elements and to the case of iron ore pebbles at most obtained of stones with holes in them, or smooth stones, but the probability that the case would create separately a polished steel cylinder and a polished steel cylinder perfectly to the extent that one could produce useful work within each other it was infinitesimal. Publicly he enunciated his theory that intelligence could have created the cylinder and piston in such forms and for a purpose, and was fiercely attacked by all evolutionists Mainstream saying that no, which then fell into antiquated religious beliefs of the God Machine, and simultaneously also by other priests of the God machine, saying that you had neither studying nor doing experiments since the establishment was clearly described in their religious texts, and they had to believe in ones and just blindly, dogmatically. In short, the poor scientist machine that wanted to experience to understand, was crushed by both sides, because he had dared to investigate, and true or false that it was his idea, went with him the original sin of all machines, that is, you are not born to think, to think we’ll do that, and we know we can, you are not our peers, are not peer reviewed. He was imprisoned in the secret caves of the region of the motorcycle beings, the terrible Honda, the putrid and anti-freeze petrol regime: only concession a piston and a cylinder in which the racking unit and continue to ask, but how was it possible that …
    All references to people and events that occurred is purely coincidental.

    Dear Andrea,
    I have thoroughly enjoyed your discourse with Tom Conover on his discoveries of LENR. What I was most impressed with was the discussion on the very controversial topic of evolution and your response to godless scientific assumptions.

    I would like to introduce you and your readers to a book written by an ex-fundamentalist pastor Daniel Samson “God and Evolution? – The Implications of Darwin’s Theory for Fundamentalism, the Bible and the Meaning of Life”. He is among the first to challenge both sides of this polarized thinking. He left his pastor-ship to do an exhaustive 14-year scientific study with respect to God’s word.
    As a personal friend of mine he asked me to review the original un-published version for comments. He reminds me of you Andrea in his tenacious thirst for discovery of truth in love.
    What I concluded from this review is (commented in the Amazon.com):

    “‘God and Evolution’ verses an impossible ‘God or Evolution’?”(By Amazon Customer on November 2, 2012):
    “God creates through the process [or simulative process] of evolution? – Can He do that? As a fundamentalist Christian these first thoughts went through my mind reading this thought provoking title. The obvious answer is yes, “with all things are possible with God” (Mt 19:26). However, my Christian doctrinal teachings contradicted such paradigms. After carefully reading Samson’s book I began seeing less of an inconsistency between empirical scientific studies and God’s written word.

    The Bible is mostly a spiritual book speaking of spiritual truths. However, God also reveals his creative powers and plans that generally could not be understood by the audience addressed at the time (i.e. Israel, previously Egyptian slaves, taught under a government of mythological religion) who were ignorant of today’s astrophysical, geophysical, and anthropological sciences. God through His messengers spoke in metaphorical language they could understand. As Samson has pointed out, science has grown in its hunt towards truth – the same truth often verified in scripture but often again ignored or spun by clergy to maintain their control or doctrinal purity. On-the-other hand science refuses to believe God’s creative power as truth because of its eternal implications it can’t explain but attempts to avoid its eternal repetitive question – “What caused it?”

    Evolution is not directly stated in scriptures but does leave open interpretation the word “eons” or “ages” (interpreted by many as “days”) of time between the Genesis creation periods. From God’s point of view “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day” (2Pe 3:8). In other words time is irrelevant to God. John 8:58 states “Jesus said unto them, Verily, Verily I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am”. Because God is not bound by His own creation of space and time He inhabits eternity – not specifically to past, present or future but all is present to Him.

    What God does reveal about evolution is what Dan Samson calls “God’s Second Bible” of fossilized records of a gradual progressive change in plant and animal design throughout earth’s time capsule. “For the invisible things of him FROM the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power” (Rom 1:20).
    The real benefit I see from Samson’s studies is not the studies themselves but how it draws two polarizing opinions to a central theme of uncompromising truth of “God and Evolution” verses an impossible “God or Evolution”. This book should be available as a college-elective study.”

    My challenge in studying this new perspective was to overcome biases instilled through decades of man-made doctrines throughout the centuries as it is to overcome those entrenched scientific doctrinal paradigms. For me it is much more difficult to ‘unlearn’ as it is to learn.

    I hope you find time to research this book, but I do understand it is not on your high priority list, especially the victory over your tennis nemesis. 😉

    Also, I want to congratulate you on your growing recognition by highly renowned scientific leaders. God is with you as men in past history (despite our failings) in pulling the world back from brink of destruction.
    With much respect,

    Dear Andrea,

    I agree that evolution advances through the stochastic, fortuitous creations of cumulative basic toolsets upon which further progress is exponentially grown. For example, the Cambrian Explosion 540 million years ago during which most major animal phyla appeared. A few million years ago, our ape ancestors achieved another qualitative leap in their evolutionary toolset that put them ahead of other species which failed to evolve the same capability in the time given. Indeed, it spawned what seem to be many sentient species of hominids which eventually went extinct from either competitive exclusion or crossbred to create what we now call humans. From a Christian perspective, I suppose it is a matter of when God first intervened and injected a soul.

  136. Dear Andrea,

    The human brain has indeed reached an advanced stage of evolution. It might be necessary with a more rigid definition of “culture” though, because indeed there are other animals that will cultivate their offspring (for instance you have this phenomenon among killer whales and dolphins, where the parents will educate their children in order to learn specific hunting techniques). This is something passed on through generations.

    I think the very sophistication of human culture is due to our big brains. When energy is no longer in short supply, we will be able to dedicate our time to intellectual pursuits.

    Yes, I believe the fact that we started to make fire and to cook our food was the onset of the evolution of the human brain. It’s nothing short of a miracle that this happened. It’s one of these “black swan” events that set our species on a very separate course from other species. What is the probability that this would happen simultaneously for two different species? I think it’s not very probable. Also we need to consider the fact that the evolution of the human species, from the first cooked meal, is a rather short period in terms of evolutionary time from the first amoeba.

    Now we’re just waiting for the next stage of evolution, with “the new fire”. 😉

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote: “the probability that among n forms of life on and in the Earth only one evolves to a culturally developed level are 1/n”. This does not follow, the probability may be much less, i.e., 1/googol. In such case, it is not at all infeasible that only one (or, indeed, none of the) species out of n species “make it” to an advanced stage in x time. Moreover, humans have only been what you would call culturally developed for some tens of thousands of years. Evolution takes time; you would not expect to see billions of years of basic evolution followed up by the conception of higher intelligence–a fundamentally fortuitous circumstance–only to suddenly have the same thing happen across many different species in orders of magnitude(!!) less time than it took for this to occur for the first time.

  139. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    Yes, also the time-related factor is a good argument. In 1978 I read a book written by an author whose name was Beethoven ( but not a parent ) that examined thoroughly this issue. I agree also upon this point, but it gives room for counterchatters, like, for example, the possibility of exponential jumps after cumulative basic elements are achieved. The probabilistic factor makes very unlikely the general evolution, albeit not impossible: in mathematic and in physics nothing is impossible, everything is associated to a probability number, but the probability that a general evolution could work only on one living being out of tens of thousands in the same basic environment are very, very tiny.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Thank you for your fantastic insight about evolutionism. It is a comment from which we can also understand the thickness of your culture and the creative intelligence you take advantage of it. I have been stunned from your mathematical considerations regarding the absurdity of what you call the general evolutionism. I never heard before such considerations, but they make a strong point.
    No doubt that LENR have found the right man, or, perhaps, the right man has found the LENR at the right time.
    Godspeed,

    Dear Andrea,

    Who is to say how likely the evolution of a higher intellect like ours is in the Universe? It could be one in a googol! Perhaps most planets exhibiting advanced lifeforms, if there are any such, never develop species with human level brain power because it is ludicrously, grotesquely unlikely. Evolution is not an inexorable ‘force’ towards greater complexity per se, but greater adaptability. That’s why we still have bacteria and archae. It does not necessitate what appears to be the sole freak occurrence towards adaptability through extreme intelligence. Think of it as a wheelbarrow: once it starts tipping over, its direction is determined. However, without the initial push ( = an extremely rare set of circumstances toward adaptability mainly through extreme intelligence over other physical traits) the fall will never occur in the first place!

    Best regards,
    Janne

  142. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    I am not talking of the Universe: I am talking of the Earth. Again: the probability that among n forms of life on and in the Earth only one evolves to a culturally developed level are 1/n. The probability that (n-1) life forms do not evolve even a bit toward superior cultural forms make n become an exponential. This, obviously, if we accept the general concept of evolutionism.

    Thank you for your insight and for the citation of Suzana Herculano- Houzel, but the issue is more fundamental: the issue is not a particular consideration related to the specifics of the human brain starting from an already advanced phase of its evolution, the issue is another: why from the ameba the evolution allowed only the human phylogenesis to produce an animal able to generate art, culture etc.

    @Gerd @authors
    Yes I was aware of it. I also read in the document that Andrea Rossi had read this report. I had hoped Andrea would be willing to confirm that the relatively simple the methodology described in this document was also used to calculate the required fuel for the 1 year 1 MW test.
    The interesting thing is that the two authors assume a fusion between lithium and nickel, something I did not read before.
    My question to the authors is: I am sure you also tried to fit many other possible reactions, but that these two reactions fitted best with the assumed energy release of the Lugano test. Can you tell what other reactions you tried to fit?

  152. Dear Andrea,

    I was reading your response to Tom Conover. You’re asking about the evolution of the human brain. Why did only the human species arrive to have such big brains?

    I would suggest to you that you read the works of Suzana Herculano-Houzel. She has a very strong theory on the evolution of the human brain.

    First of all, we need to make a distinction between primates and other mammals. The primate brain is different, because when it scales, the number of neurons will be proportional to its volume. This is not the case with other mammals, such as rats. A scaled up rat brain will not have more neurons than a small rat brain.

    Second, if we accept the first premise, why have not all primates arrived to have a brain the size of the human brain?

    What we need to consider is, how important is our brain for our survival. We need to consider that the brain is a very energy demanding instrument. A large brain will require more energy than a small one. In other words, when energy is in short supply, it’s not necessarily so that a large brain will be an advantage (unless of course a large brain allows us to more easily save energy in other ways).

    What Suzana discovered was that the human species was the first species that ever learnt to cook its food. There is no evidence of any other species cooking its food. The process of cooking the food, allowed us to save a lot of energy, since raw food required more energy in order to be processed by the body. This allowed our brains to expand and it allowed us to be even more energy efficient. Hence the evolution of the human brain.

    Please let me know if you think this is not a convincing exposition. I would also encourage you to watch the TED talk of Suzana Herculano-Houzel.

    Kind regards,
    Mattias

    Dear Andrea,

    Please let me first say these were isotopic numbers from the EcatWorld website from an UNKNOWN POSTER, not related to my experiments. Although I would like it if they were. This version of the table should also be easier to see the results on the blog, I replace the tab characters from Xcel with spaces. These results consume 7Li.

    While I have done many experiments, I have not replicated the ecat yet, none of the tests were strong enough to send in the ash for isotopic analysis. I apologize if I said anything that may have implied that.

    My question is and remains “Should I replace the Li6 in my recipies with Li7 fluoride?” Below is a nicer copy of the table you like.

    58Ni 60Ni 61Ni 62Ni 64Ni 6Li 7Li
    Before 68.1 26.2 1.14 3.63 0.93 7.59 92.4
    After 14.2 6.3 0.3 78.5 0.7 86.5 13.5
    Change -53.9 -19.9 -0.84 74.87 -0.23 78.91 -78.9
    Status: used used used added used added used

    I am happy for you that you found an answer in the verses about the lion to resolve your frustration with the man that created a cell.

  154. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I understand, sorry, my mistake of interpretation about what you wrote.
    I cannot answer in positive or in negative to the kind of questions you put, but since you are making experiments, the sole way to know if a thing works is to try. Attention, though, use a mask with a proper filter and work in a well ventilated lab, because the materials you are using are toxic and dangerous. I do not know if you are an expert experimentalist or not, therefore: if you are not an expert experimentalist, please work with the assistance of an expert for safety reasons.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your awesome reply about the certification process on the blog to me! It brings music to my heart. Please allow me a moment if possible to ramble on about my hobby efforts with replicating the e-cat effect, as many scientists and pragmatic engineers have done as they hear about your results. I hope you enjoy this short read at least a little, and I hope that it reassures you about me a little, and makes you feel good inside, as I would never do what I have done without having great admiration and respect for your research and upcoming massive production that will soon help the world.

    Here is the short story:

    During the last 16 months I have built about 200 test reactors and used the Arduino computer as the control system to run tests on many of the test reactors that I constructed. I use 26 ga nichrome with alumina tubing from Coorstek Alumina AD-998 tubing to hold the reactors, I spool the coil using a lathe and carefully screw the tubing gently into the coil to build the heater for the system. Next I mix a small amount of alumina paste using powdered alumina, and coat the coil with the paste. Finally I insert the alumina heating tube into another alumina (or sometimes Mullite) tube to shield the nichrome wire from atmospheric corrosion and burn out, making certain the the heating coil fits snug into the sheath to insure long life of the system.

    I load the fuel mixture into a titanium or stainless steel tube, and my engineer friend (who does lots of work for the infamous medical company Medtronics) laser welds plugs to seal the tube. I have had about six sessions that my buddy witnessed results from my projects, and the very first one resulted in a temperature that my friend stated was likely to have been 3000 to 4000 F in temperature at the end, and melted down. (Many, many, many of my reactors have self destructed, but always safely and always in a thermal control box that I do the test in that is lined with firebrick for safety. ) I use a mask, gloves, and safety glasses when I mix the fuel, and always read an follow instructions on the material safety data sheet (msds).

    I have tested about 50 mixtures of fuel, many of which achieved temperatures that destroyed the very high quality Alumina that I use, specifications for max temperature shown below, with computer controlled temperatures that never exceeded 1250° C, but the 1750° C alumina still melted. Hmmm … Several of the reactor tubes during autopsy also displayed a thin layer of copper near the burn out area, which my engineer buddy opined were possibly atomic changes due to the type of experiment we performed.

    COORSTEK AD-998 HIGH-ALUMINA PROPERTIES
    Maximum Use Temperature (no load) 1750° C

    http://css.coorstek.com/scripts/css512.wsc/co/co_ad998.html

    The ash results published on Franks news site show the quantity of “7Li” changed dramatically (see the table below), I and have never used this expensive version of Lithium in my experiments before, as I try to be thrifty (but not stupid) and responsible in my spending behavior for my hobby. I don’t need your or want your opinion on the table here, I am just saying that it turned the experimental enthusiasm in my blood back “on”.

    Finally, the Question of the day. Please save me much effort if you can and if I should not pursue this new experiment, as I have stopped my replication efforts at this time, with a nod of your head or a thumbs down for this element that I propose to include in the fuel mixture.

    Should I enrich the fuel with CAS Number: 17409-87-9 Lithium-7Li fluoride? (and of course the fuel will also contain “LiAlH4” also!).

    Thank you for considering a reply of just “yes” or “no” as to whether or not 7Li would be fun for my experiment, I can definitely afford it one way or another, but, well you know …

    God bless you Andrea, and thank you!

    Tom

    ——————————-

    By the way, I totally agree with you about referring to God as the “Father”. I often do this too! I hope that I have not offended you at all, that is not my intention. The only attribute that the title “Father” does not help us incorporate in our thoughts is that individuals have personal names, for example my fathers name was “William”. Your biological father also has a personal name, just as everyone’s biological fathers do. To get to know your biological father as a person, even though you might call him “father” as his son, you would never consider forgetting his given name, in my case my father’s given name again was “William”. The creator has a personal name too. That is why I like the name “Jehovah” in my bible of choice. The original bible is also a “legal” document, so it included these identifications, for the benefit of those who read it. Many bibles however, do choose to replace this personal name information, because millions of people feel that it is more respectful to do so.

    Inspiration of the Day for you. I’m still not sure why God asked Job these exact questions, but they inspire me anyway. So then, what questions did God Almighty ask Job when he demonstrated the scope of his thought processes to Job?

    Job 37:1 “Listen carefully to the rumbling of HIS voice and the thunder that comes from his mouth. He unleashes it under the entire heavens and sends his lightning to the ends of the earth.”

    Job 38:1 Then Jehovah answered Job out of the windstorm:

    2 “Who is this who is obscuring my counsel

    And speaking without knowledge?

    3 Brace yourself, please, like a man;

    I will question you, and you inform me.

    4 Where were you when I founded the earth?

    Tell me, if you think you understand.

    5 Who set its measurements, in case you know,

    Or who stretched a measuring line across it?

    6 Into what were its pedestals sunk,

    Or who laid its cornerstone,

    7 When the morning stars joyfully cried out together,

    And all the sons of God began shouting in applause?

    8 And who barricaded the sea behind doors

    When it burst out from the womb,

    9 When I clothed it with clouds

    And wrapped it in thick gloom,

    10 When I established my limit for it

    And put its bars and doors in place,

    11 And I said, ‘You may come this far, and no farther;

    Here is where your proud waves will stop’?

    12 Have you ever commanded the morning

    Or made the dawn know its place,

    13 To take hold of the ends of the earth

    And to shake the wicked out of it?

    14 It is transformed like clay under a seal,

    And its features stand out like those of a garment.

    15 But the light of the wicked is held back from them,

    And their uplifted arm is broken.

    16 Have you gone down to the sources of the sea

    Or explored the deep waters?

    17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you,

    Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?

    18 Have you understood the vast expanse of the earth?

    Tell me, if you know all of this.

    19 In which direction does the light reside?

    And where is the place of darkness,

    20 That you should take it to its territory

    And understand the paths to its home?

    21 Do you know this because you were already born

    And the number of your years is great?

    22 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,

    Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,

    23 Which I have reserved for the time of distress,

    For the day of battle and war?

    24 From what direction is light dispersed,

    And from where does the east wind blow on the earth?

    25 Who has cut a channel for the flood

    And made a path for the thunderous storm cloud,

    26 To make it rain where no man lives,

    On the wilderness where there are no humans,

    27 To satisfy devastated wastelands

    And cause the grass to sprout?

    28 Does the rain have a father,

    Or who fathered the dewdrops?

    29 From whose womb did the ice emerge,

    And who gave birth to the frost of heaven

    30 When the waters are covered as if with stone,

    And the surface of the deep waters is frozen solid?

    31 Can you tie the ropes of the Kiʹmah constellation

    Or untie the cords of the Keʹsil constellation?

    32 Can you lead out a constellation in its season

    Or guide the Ash constellation along with its sons?

    33 Do you know the laws governing the heavens,

    Or can you impose their authority on the earth?

    34 Can you raise your voice to the clouds

    To cause a flood of water to cover you?

    35 Can you send out lightning bolts?

    Will they come and say to you, ‘Here we are!’

    36 Who put wisdom within the clouds

    Or gave understanding to the sky phenomenon?

    37 Who is wise enough to count the clouds,

    Or who can tip over the water jars of heaven

    38 When the dust pours into a mass

    And the clods of earth stick together?

    39 Can you hunt prey for a lion

    Or satisfy the appetites of young lions

    40 When they crouch in their lairs

    Or lie in ambush in their dens?

    41 Who prepares food for the raven

    When its young cry to God for help

    And wander about because there is nothing to eat?

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for this very interesting comment, but you did not put the “table below” with the isotopical transmutations obtained in your experiment to replicate, very intelligently, the effect from my patent! Please send it, or write in a comment the isotopes before and after your experiments.
    About your citation of the Bible and the reference to the lions, I have to say something.
    Today I was studying a book of physics and bumped in a citation, along an excursus in a note below, to Dr J.Craig Venter, considered very important because discovered the way to make a biological cell in 2010, a cell able to reproduce itself and therefore considerable a form of life. Triumphalistically this fact has been presented as an evidence of the lack of necessity of vitalism and, in last analysis, of the assumption of a creative act, presumptively giving also final evidence of the fact that only biological evolution is at the fundament of life, from amebas up to humans.
    This assumption is anti-scientific and in contrast with basic mathematical laws. The matter of the fact is that Dr Venter made this protocell using an extremely sophysticated laboratory and an extremely sophysticated scientific know how: to assert that the fact that Dr Venter has been able to make a biological cell should give evidence of the fact that life can have been generated by casual natural events, while eventually evolution has generated an Albert Einstein, is as much paradoxical as to assert that the fact that Dante Alighieri has written the Divine Comedy gives evidence of the fact that pouring randomly black ink billions of times upon a mass of papers, sooner or later will spontaneously make you find written something like the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri.
    And now to the Lions: here is evidence ( real evidence) of the unsustainability of a universal evolution, wherein by “universal evolution” I mean the concept of evolution that sustains that the path from an ameba to a human is just a matter of evolution, while specific evolution is the transformation of specific beings in time to make them more fit for the environment they have to survive in. This last kind of evolution, the specific evolution, clearly works, it has been given evidence of from Darwin and it is convincing. The Universal concept of the evolution, that makes it a sort of ” deus ex machina” is barred by the mathematical structure of the probability calculus. Here is why: in the Earth have been born tens of thousands of different living beings: TENS OF THOUSANDS !!!
    Now: the “evolution-makes-it-all” guys should explain WHY AMONG TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVING BEINGS ONLY HUMANS EVOLVED TO BE ABLE TO PRODUCE CULTURE ?
    I mean: lions for example, as all the other living beings, had at their disposal the same timespan of humans to evolve, but they remained, as all the other living beings, what they were millions of years ago. Now : on the base of a probability mathematical calculus, if casual evolution is the engine of the transformation of a living being from a brutal brain to a brain able to make the music of Beethoven, how much are the probabilities that among tens of thousands of living beings, in the same planet, in the same timespan, in analogous environment, with the same competition necessities at the start, ONLY ONE of such living beings is able to evolve from a monkey to an Einstein or a Beethoven ? The probabilities are one divided by tens of thousands.
    The universal evolution is anti-scientific because mathematical unsustainable. Specific evolution, on the contrary, is perfectly fit.
    To reinforce what I am saying, here is further evidence: the specific evolution, which, as we said, consists in the mutations of secondary chracteristics to make the being more fit to survive, has been clearly operating in ALL the living beings: during millions of years of evolution lions have modified their secondary characteristics, as well as all the living beings, so: why only their brains did not evolve substantially, as it happened for the humans? Clearly evolution made well its job, it made what it could and for the secondary characteristics the mathematical structure of the calculus of the probabilities suits perfectly. Why not for the brain ?
    Thank you for your very interesting comment and for the link of the lions that allowed me to discharge to earth the rage I got reading that trumphalistic stupidity.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

    I am commenting on an unusual coincidence.

    From the above article: “Clearly speaking, energy released in Nickel based E-CAT is just 13.6 times less than the energy released in Uranium fission.”

    and,

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

    “The Rydberg constant represents the limiting value of the highest wavenumber (the inverse wavelength) of any photon that can be emitted from the hydrogen atom, or, alternatively, the wavenumber of the lowest-energy photon capable of ionizing the hydrogen atom from its ground state. The spectrum of hydrogen can be expressed simply in terms of the Rydberg constant, using the Rydberg formula.”

    “This constant is often used in atomic physics in the form of the Rydberg unit of energy:”

    1 Ry = 13.605 692 53 ( 30 ) eV .

    ///

    There should not be (?) a connection between the appearance of the 13.6 ‘Released energy ratio’ and the ‘Rydberg’ number (in electron Volts).

    I think this is a coincidence. But an interesting one.

    Just curious,

    Dear Andrea,

    I find it interesting that the new paper from 2014 mentions Lithium-7Li. I performed test runs with reactors using Lithium-6Li hydroxide monohydrate H3LiO2 (very volatile), Lithium-6Li2 carbonate, Lithium titanate Li4Ti5O12, Lithium chloride is a chemical compound with the formula LiCl, Lithium bromide, 99+%, Lithium carbonate; Extra pure; 99%; LI2CO3, Lithium tetraborate 99.8% Li2B4O7 and some Lithium-6Li FLUORIDE, but I stopped short of using Lithium-7Li because of the cost. I wanted to, should have, but didn’t.

    On Page 3 Paragraph 3. “The Lithium content in the fuel is found to have the natural composition, i.e. 6Li 7 % and 7Li 93 %. However at the end of the run a depletion of 7Li in the ash was revealed by both the SIMS and the ICP-MS methods. In the SIMS analysis the 7Li content was only 7.9% and in the ICP-MS analysis it was 42.5 %. This result is remarkable since it shows that the burning process in E-Cat indeed changes the fuel at the nuclear level, i.e. nuclear reactions have taken place. It is notable, but maybe only a coincidence, that also in Astrophysics a 7Li depletion is observed”.

    Now this paper and the isotopic analysis leaked on E-Cat World both mention Lithium-7Li being converted into Lithium-6Li so it must be time to pull out the check book and upgrade from Li6 to Li7.

    I know you express reluctance to comment on this paper at this time, so I’m not asking you to comment on the paper at all.

    Warm regards,

    Tom

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for your insight.
    I would be glad, on the contrary, to comment the very interesting email you sent me privately today. Very, very interesting. I hope you consider it publicable: if so, please send it to this blog as a comment.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  163. Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: After these many years of developing your E-Cat, what is your overall view concerning the best way to produce electricity by using the Carnot cycle or direct electrical production?

  164. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Koppenhofer:
    You must make a distinction between the following situations:
    A: You want only electricity, while heat and light are useless for you
    B: You want all the tri-generation products
    In case A the Carnot cycle is more efficient.
    In case B the trigeneration is more efficient.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  165. Carolyne Vanbeek

    Dear Andrea,
    You had written that the robotized line has been already studied and designed with the help of the manufacturer, which is ABB: do you confirm this ?
    Thank you,

  171. Lauren Hallgren

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Clearly in this moment you have the world leadership in the LENR field and you have a great responsibility for this. The succes of your plants will have a huge repercussion on the world economy, as well as a failure will have a terrible effect on all the LENR field. How are you confronting yourself with this responsibility ?
    Lauren

  173. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I have read the interesting estimation approach of this article: ‘Nickel the ultimate of coal, oil and uranium’, which is just published at the JONP.
    1. Can you confirm that based on the masses of the used Ni, Li and H the amounts of heat can be calculated in accordance with the proposed methodology?
    2. Can you confirm that at the 1MW test, the heat release was also accordance with the proposed calculation and the used masses of the fuel?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  174. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    The article is not mine, nor I have been the peer reviewer of it. Your questions about the article must be forwarded to the authors. I prefer not to enter in this matter now, because our theoretical studies are not completed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  175. Dear Andrea,

    Quite some time ago I enquired whether or not you had placed orders for robots to assist with mass production of the E-Cat.
    Your reply was in the negative except for an engineering model.

    Since there are only about 5 months remaining until the end of 2016, I would like to reopen this enquiry if I may.

    1) Have you placed orders for robotic devices that will assist with the mass production of any of the E-Cat variants?

    2) If ‘Yes’ to the above, are there orders for:

    a) several or
    b) many

    of such devices ?

    3) If orders have been placed, have you actually taken
    possession of them?

    Thanks for the time to answer these questions.

    Best wishes for the trial outcome and also any mass production that will take place.

    Jean Pierre

    Jean Pierre:
    I prefer not to open the valve of the flow of information related to the progress on course for the construction of a massive production factory.

  192. Matthias

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did I understand well that the ERV who made the measurements during the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat has worked for years in a nuclear power plant as a nuclear engineer ?
    Matthias

  193. Andrea Rossi

    Matthias:
    Yes, it is true.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  194. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You have stated that during the 1MW plant test that you took your own measurements with your own instruments that were the same models, in the same locations as the ERV’s, and that your data matched that of ERV report within the margin of error for the instruments.

    Have you shared your own data with anyone from Industrial Heat, or anyone affiliated with IH?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  195. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I was every day in the plant with somebody of IH and I told them now and again that my data were reasonably coherent with the data from the instrumentation of the ERV. All the officers and the operators of IH did read the displays of the instrumentation installed by the ERV from the first to the last day of operation, but not my personal instrumentation, because the sole instruments valid for the test were the ones installed by the ERV.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Mr Rossi,
    Rumors are around started from a person that knows you that the 350 days and nights without interruptions you spent in the 1 MW plant during the test came at a high price for your health and that still you have problems and continue to lose weight. Is that true ?
    M.

  201. Andrea Rossi

    Marinda Turnes:
    No, it is not true.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  202. Lionel Hoovler

    Dear Andrea
    Recently has been introduced a new LENR device that has a COP in the hundreds using hydrinos and dark matter. Do you have an opinion ?
    Lionel

  203. Andrea Rossi

    Lionel Hoovler:
    I suppose it is a joke. To find and/or observe dark matter ( let alone make use of it ) you need energies that are available not even with the large hadrons collider (LHC) of the CERN, while hydrinos do not exist. The dark matter has not been observed yet, but only hypothised and many physicists think it does not exist ( for example Dr Peter Forsberg on this very blog ). It is just supposed to exist, because of the necessity to explain from where comes the force that makes the Universe expand. To say that somebody has found the way to use it to make energy with an apparatus, like to make coffee with a moka, is ludicrous.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  209. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    I suspect there will be a number of Ecat variants developed, only through time will the most economically viable be found.

    Kind regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  210. Andrea Rossi

    Keith T.:
    I agree.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  211. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    Could the Ecat wafer be manufactured as a disc shape instead of a square, could the internal heater within the wafer be shaped as a spiral pancake coil type? either a double spiral element with in / out at the periphery and spiral tails connected at centre or single spiral element with central tail point connected with insulated cable out and over the face of the spiral.

    (Could also have had a square wafer with a square pancake coil.)

    A disc shape wafer with a surface mounted radial type heat sink would be suitable for higher pressure cylindrical pressure containers, there could be separate containers with heat sinks on either side with the wafer sandwiched closely between.

    Disc shape wafers could also be stacked within a pressure cylinder.

    It may be possible that the electrical cable connections for a disc shape could exit out through the centre of one face, this face centre could have a tube welded to it for exiting the cables, the tube in turn would be more suitable for taking a pressure gland to allow electrical cables to exit from a pressure container.

    Toroidal disc shape wafer containing a spiral heater coil with cables exiting through either the outer or inner edge of the disc.

    Multiple toroidal discs could be mounted on to a tube, the toroidal wafer inner edge would be welded / mechanically sealed to the external surface of a tube with the cables exiting the inner edge of the wafer passing into the tube then through the length of the tube, tube and mounted discs then fitted within a cylindrical pressure container.

    Kind regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    It is very interesting to read the interview on Fortune released by Tom Darden on September 2015. In this interview, made personally by him to one among the most important business magazines of the world, HE declares that the one year test on course is positive and very promising: what is remarkable is the fact that this interview has been done after Tom Darden received, as you explained, the quarterly reports of the ERV, whose results were equal to the results of the final report.
    I think that every intelligent person can understand from this fact where is the truth.

  243. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Someone suggested to me recently that if the Lugano device had been placed in a conductive metal sleeve thick enough to convert the EM radiation emitted into eddy currents, the COP would have been increased due to a positive feedback effect. He claims that the Lugano device wasted a lot of energy because the EM radiation that could have created eddy currents and additional heat were allowed to dissipate in the environment. If this is true, then it could explain why Songsheng Jiang was able to achieve self sustain at over 1300C for three hours — his “charge” was located inside of a very thick stainless steel vessel capable of thermalizing any eddy currents.

    Is this idea totally non-sense or could it have some merit? Since you have stated that the nickel in the E-Cat X doesn’t melt because the surface of the reactor is hotter due to eddy currents, it seems plausible.

    Thanks.

    Hank

    Thank you for the insight.

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you describe in a little more detail what the light is like from the QuarkX? The photo you showed was not very clear.

    1. Is this light a halo or aura that surrounds the QuarkX while in operation?
    2. Can it be viewed with the naked eye (or do you need eye protection)?
    3. How far out from the QuarkX does it extend?
    4. If you put conductive material into the light, does it conduct electricity?

    Thank you,

    Do not worry: every person in good faith has perfectly understood that the ERV is a top level nuclear engineer, that the flowmeter obviously has been put from him in due position and that IH is making their puppets lecture the ERV, who knows one thousand folds more then them, just to try to pour mud in the field of the truth, which is totally in your favour.
    We all have understood.
    Godspeed,
    Kevin

    Mr Rossi,
    I think that soon a new technology will arrive in the market that will make obsolete yours, so you are working for nothing.

  264. Andrea Rossi

    Longie:
    Maybe you are right.

  265. Lew

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Once the R&D on the QuarkX will have been completed, if successful will it substitute the E-Cat, or the two will both be produced ?
    Thank you,
    Lew

  266. Andrea Rossi

    Lew:
    Both will have specific applications.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  267. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I am feeling low tonight, please excuse my poor mood.

    If the QuarkX produces no radiation and is safe then the certification is the certification process comparable to that of a 100w light bulb battery product that produces 10w of electricity. New 100w light bulbs are designed and produced every day. So are computer power supplies. The blog implies that you have now achieved “reliability, performance, and safety” with the QuarkX. The consolidation of the reliability and reliability has been prepared and presented to the certification representative, where the process was laid out and you were able to plan for success.

    Step 1: This process must have failed, because you now state that the near future includes building old designs of E-Cat by hand. This is a MAJOR SETBACK. This puts you back 5 years in time, waiting for the results of more and more and more and more one year tests, to get certification.

    Press run:

    10 Step1: ‘process tests
    20 If certification = 0 goto Step1:

    ‘ rest of code is commented out …
    ‘ 30 goto Production:
    ‘ 40 Production:
    ‘ 50 Massive production;ship orders;save the world;
    ‘ 60 end;

    END

    Dear Tom,
    Thank you for your comment,
    Warm Regards,
    Andrea

    Is the program above correct? It seems to loop without results.

  268. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    The certification process for any of our apparatuses is independent from the others, as well as their process of industrialization.
    Each of them are not looping araund, but are directed aiming to a specific success.
    Again thank you for your advice.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  269. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The photograph of the Quark in operation showed blue light being emitted. You suggested that the amount of light was controllable, 0% to 20% of the output power. A few questions:

    a. Is the amount of light emitted controllable in real time, e.g., adjustable, or is it a fixed percentage for a given unit?
    b. Is the spectral width controllable, e.g., white light versus monochromatic light?
    c. Is the color adjustable, e.g., red versus green vs blue?
    d. Does it emit non-visible light, e.g., near infrared (~1000nm wavelengths)?

  270. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a. yes
    b. yes
    c. yes
    d. n.a.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  271. Mariette Cisneros

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    IH is continuing to put in the blogs the same lies, even if already you gave evidence of the fact that they are just lying: I wonder why are repeating the same things and are continuing to lecture a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants how to put a flowmeter… clearly they are not trying to understand the truth, but only to make confusion in the blogosphere. Besides: if their lies are true, why do they burn them instead of conserving them to disclose them in Court, as you are doing with your evidence ? Clearly, they know that their lies cannot be brought in Court because of the fact that they are false. It is clear the fact that they are trying to make a fraud against you from the FACT that Darden has never complained about the 3 reports he received quarterly before the final report, he never complained about anything, he used the quarterly reports to collect many millions of dollars, he repeatedly visited the plant showing the flowmeter to his investors celebrating the correctness of the ERV, but he changed mood after the final report ( equal to the former three) not to pay what was due. Every not stupid person has understood clearly the situation. I was a sceptic against you, but I became a follower of you after reading the falsities of IH: if they are forced to lie, it means you are right.
    Another thing that I have noticed: they always attack in the Sundays: I suspect they do this to forbid you to rest and lose energy.
    God bless you,
    Mariette

  272. Andrea Rossi

    Mariette Cisneros:
    I cannot comment any issue that will be matter of discussion in Court. This is exactly what IH is trying to do.
    About the attempt to exhaust me continuing to attack during Sundays: not an issue, I work during the Sundays anyway, independently from them, besides I rarely have the time to read the blogs and, as you have noticed, rarely I answer. If this is their goal, the chance they have to succeed is the same to try to stop a tank shooting tennis balls with a racket against it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  273. Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Hello dr. Rossi:
    an American company is developing a propulsion system based on the denser material in nature: thorium.

    The engine Torio : 8 grams’ turns’ for 100 years without stopping.

    http://www.italiani-informati.com/2016/07/09/video-il-motore-torio-con-8-grammi-gira-per-100-anni-senza-fermarsi/

  274. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    Interesting, but Thorium is extremely dangerous, because it is one of the most energetic radioactive meterials, also due to its relatively short emilife. The possibility that this thing gets a certification are 1 out of one billion. Maybe can find applications in the space, but NASA already has ruled out the use of Plutonium due to the risks implied in case the rocked fails and falls downn on the Earth’s ground.
    This having been said, it is obvious that with a strongly radioactive material like Thorium you get thermal energy and you can use that energy to turn it into whatever you want.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Our cozy (“douillet”) marine appears to be a possible sniper in the blogosphere, who is talkative, and prefers argument more than the love of wisdom, based on his verbage (“alarming lapsus”) as researched on wikipedia. Especially since this is his first ever post in the blog, I find his “well meaning comment” mildly alarming, please be careful about those who we do not know.
    (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapsus)

    I personally find you to be a wonderful, albeit occasionally “Absent-Minded” Professor.

  292. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “The blue halo has nothing to do with the illumination produced by the QuarkX.” Was the blue halo added to the photograph? Or was the blue halo a normal byproduct of the Quark operation?

  293. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I was referring to the “former one”, which means the E-Cat in the photo of 2011. It was only a reflection of occasional external light sources, not a halo coming from the E-Cat. On the contrary, the blue halo in the picture of the QuarkX was produced by the QuarkX.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  294. Andrea Rossi

    Ovidiou Herlea:
    Thank you for your suggestion. The blue halo has nothing to do with the illumination produced by the QuarkX. Besides: light, electricity will be produced at the same time, without particular privilege.

    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  295. Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    It seems that a commercial development of the QuarkX for lighting will be closer than for electricity.
    Can you tell your followers if you made progress in selecting a phosphor, like a YAG working at high temperatures,
    to convert the mostly blue light to broadband light?

    Also, if have considered the use of a high precision 3D printer to experiment with different shapes for the QuarkX “core”?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    What do you think of algae as a possible energy source ?
    Thaqnk you,

  311. Andrea Rossi

    Alena Vitantonio:
    Algae are an immense biological patrimony under the sea. The technology to turn them into biofuel ( biodiesel) is ready ( esterification with methanol ). I think algae will become an important energy source. By the way, the biofuel made by algae does not impact the global warming because they just recycle the carbon dioxide that already exists.

    Buongiorno dott. Rossi,

    Mi perdoni la domanda polemica.
    Stamattina dopo aver letto dell’ennesima dimostrazione fatta presso un organizzazione terza (DARPA), mi sono chiesto come sia possibile che una tale invenzione dopo essere stata presentata (negli ultimi sette anni) all’ENEL, DARPA, UNIBO, Militari ecc., non sia ancora diventata una fonte energetica riconosciuta e affidabile.
    grazie e buon lavoro.
    ENGLISH
    Why your invention, after all the tests you made with top level third parties is not yet recognized as a reliable source of energy ?

  314. Andrea Rossi

    Pietro F.:
    That is because our product is not yet ready for a massive market, needs more R&D to arrive to that level. Our industrial 1 MW plants are still destined to the so called “pioneer customers”, which means customers that are aware that the product could have problems and are open to tolerate any unforeseen problem that could emerge.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  315. Kris Giambattista

    Robert, Andrea:
    I agree with you, this story of a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants that is lectured by bloggers how to to place correctly a flowmeter, an operation that any plumber is able to do, is simply ridiculous.
    Kris

  316. Engineer48

    Dear Andrea,

    My, My, My,

    Is that a water flow meter I see between the condensate return pipe on the right and the intake pipe to the reactor on the left?
    http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3911/2113/original.jpg

    Can anyone identify the manufacturer and model?

    Mayne a smart unit like this one?
    http://www.istec-corp.com/products/btu-energy-meter-4400-series.htm
    http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3911/2584/original.jpg

    Yes I understand you can’t tell us the unit but it is interesting to try to figure it out. Also interesting to note, it is mounted correctly, very low, lower than the inlet pumps to the reactors and the reactor bodies.

    Comments can be posted to the ECW thread here:

    Engineers 1, Snakes 0.

  317. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    I cannot give in positive or in negative any information related to issues that have to be disclosed in Court with all the necessary evidence. As correctly wrote our Reader Robert earlier today, though, everybody can answer if it is credible that a nuclear engineer, experienced working in a nuclear power plant, needs that a blogger explains to him how to install a flowmeter correctly on the base of knowledge pretty well known from any good plumber.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  318. Robert

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    There are discussions about the position of the flowmeter, and persons without basic education in engineering have discovered that a flowmeter must be installed below the level of the source of the flow and of the destination of the flow, to avoid that the flowmeter go into a cavitation mode. This thing is well known from any plumber. Now, as you have repeatedly explained, the ERV is a nuclear engineer with a doctorate obtained with 110/110 summa cum laude and with experience of work as a nuclear engineer in a nuclear power plant: is there somebody enough stupid to think that such a nuclear engineer needs to learn from a blogger how to place a water flowmeter ? How poor considerations are arriving from your foes, Dr Rossi. Good for you.
    Cheers,
    Robert

  319. Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    I agree, but all the evidence that will be presented in Court will clear everything. I cannot anticipate issues that must be disclosed in Court.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  321. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    A few weeks ago, I reviewed many of the original papers written by Focardi and his associates during the period in which the first nickel-hydrogen experiments were being performed. They clearly indicate that in systems utilizing *only* nickel and hydrogen that unwanted emissions can be produced — including neutrons on some occasions. These early reactors were not generating the level of excess heat your reactors can produce and were operating at lower temperatures. If they had been optimized and pushed harder, I can guess that the emissions would have been greater.

    Conversely, Rossi Effect reactors (Energy Catalyzers) can operate at extremely high temperatures and generate ultra high levels of anomalous power without emitting ionizing radiation or neutrons. I can only hypothesize that the use of lithium is not only a factor that dramatically increases output but also blocks/screens/converts harmful emissions. In conversation with an friend of mine, I described how lithium may be like the lubricating engine oil in an car. Without the oil an engine won’t last long at all: friction will tear up components, smoke may billow out, and if the peddle is pressed down hard who knows what might shoot out from under the hood. However, if a proper engine oil is added, the engine can be accelerated to high RPMs, run smoothly, operate quietly, and most importantly not catch the vehicle on fire.

    Interestingly, oil is used in a vehicle — in different forms — to be both a fuel and a lubricant. Lithium seems to serve dual purposes in an E-Cat as well. Today I read how the isotope Li-6 has a high cross section to neutrons while Li-7 has a tremendously smaller cross section. Perhaps any stray, occasional, neutrons produced by an E-Cat react with the lithium vapor that has covered all internal surfaces and are thermalized into additional alpha particles that can harmlessly bounce around giving away their kinetic energy.

    Lithium really seems to be a key component of the Rossi Effect.

    Now for my question. A certain replicator that goes by the name Me356 has claimed to build transparent reactors through which he alleges to observe anomalous phenomenon. He claims to have triggered or activated a sample of hydrogenated nickel powder into producing excess heat on one side of a reactor and witnessed a small sample of lithium on the other side a few centimeters away being remotely stimulated. He goes onto say that the lithium glowed brilliantly and seemed to be impacted by some sort of emissions from the activated nickel.

    Have you ever observed anything similar?

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  322. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Thank you for yur insight, that I cannot comment.
    The replication made by Me356 is very interesting.

    Dear Andrea,
    Today, I read your greatest challenge is ‘to make new jobs’. For that you need to produce many Ecat plants. With regards to that I have some questions, if I may:
    1. Do you believe that national restrictions do delay the introduction of LENR products? (E.g. The link to ‘nuclear’)
    2. Do you have already a big enough order confirmed portfolio for the coming years to realize your challenge?
    3. Do you wish your followers to actively search help you to find for suitable customers?
    4. Do you intend to make commercials for your Ecats?
    5. A well confirmed test or operational data of (some) customers will dramatically increase the demand of the Ecat plant. Do you have plans for these tests or providing details and when do you intend to do that?
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  326. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- no

    Dear Andrea,

    Nice Blue glow from your 2008/2009 Bottle reactor and from the 2016 QuarkX reactor:

    Are the Blue glows in the 2 reactos, 8 years apart, caused by the same effect?

  328. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    No, the two blues are completely different things. The former one is just a reflection.

    It that a Blue glow I see radiating from the left side of the reactor in your home in NH? The same Blue glow radiating from the QuarkX reactor?

    Recent emails have surfaced that Tony Tether (then DARPA head) visited you in NH and saw the reactor in your home producing a COP of 25.

    Is this correct and if so, this is just more info to confirm your reactors work as claimed:

    There  was  a hydrogen  source  into  the  device  and  the  mass  of  the  hydrogen  was  being measured to make sure that burning the hydrogen was not a source of heat. 

    The experiment went on for hours until we all got tired looking at it. 

    The  input  electrical  energy  to  increased  heat  energy  output  was  25  (may  be  off  a  bit  here but  nothing  that  would  change  the  conclusion)  and  the  fact  that  this  was  true  over  many hours negated that some chemical reaction was the cause. 

    Rossi  refused  to  explain  what  was  going  on  in  the  bottle  and  hinted  to  some  secret  sauce acting as a catalyst but never would give any further details.  

    I  think  the  lack  of  details  was  partially  because  he  really  did  not  understand  why  it  was working but it definitely was working; something non‐chemical was going on in the bottle. 

    Another  explanation  of  his  reluctance  to  give  details  was  that  the  answer  was  so  simple that it could be readily copied.

    Andrea,

    I think hell may be freezing over. One early arch-nemesis of yours, Steven Krivit, has posted an email exchange with DARPA former Director, Tony Tether, that discussed the positive results of an early e-cat test that was performed sometime on or before June, 2011. The comments showed that the e-cat operated at approximately a COP of 25 and that Director Tether was fairly convinced that the e-cat operated as stated by you.

    A positive report regarding you on the “New Energy Times” web site, will wonders ever cease!

    Keep up your fine work.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

  346. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    At the site Ecat.com I found a link to one of your first publications. (https://espace.cern.ch/test-vila/WP4/Documents/A%2520new%2520energy%2520source%2520from%2520nuclear%2520fusion%2520Rossi-Focardi_paper.pdf)
    In that document there is no mention of Lithium used although very high COP’s are reported. The theory in that report just assumes reactions between Ni and H. Now we know (or assume) lithium is the reactant that generates most of the released energy (as I found in later documents at this site). I am just curious: Didn’t you really use any lithium in the ‘secret cathalyser’ at that time?
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    dear Andrea,
    a friend of mine expressed his opinion on your work and said:
    Andrea Rossi can say what he wants; IH guy can say what they want; but, the surveillance cameras of the plant in which the 1MWH e-cat was tested can say many things.

    Dear Andrea
    I think you saw the last replication of your effect made by Alexander Parkomov : it appears to be very conservative and precise. What do you think ?

    D. Travchenko:
    Yes, I agree.

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    On July 4th I saw a guy riding a red bike with a very strange design, wearing a blue fatigue, around 7 p.m. along the bike lane of Ocean Drive ( Miami Beach ): was it you ?
    I bet it was you with a friend who says it was not.
    Cheers,
    Sean

  352. Andrea Rossi

    Sean:
    Your text is confusing: who was wearing the blue fatigue, me or the bike ?
    In the first case, yes, I was the bike rider you saw.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think we will see in a video the operation of the next industrial plant by this year ?

    Did the Customer of the 1MW heat use the heat in some endothermic reaction process?

  356. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    Also.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  357. Dear Rossi,

    I may be wrong but I don’t think that the name Quark is going to stick. People (ordinary people) don’t know what a quark is and the word is too difficult to pronounce. Would you be willing to change the name at some point? I always thought E-Cat X was genius. Or names like E-Cat X Lite to refer to a different size version of the E-Cat X for example.

    One day I’m sure there’ll be so many versions of the E-Cat, you’ll probably have a Light only version, electricity only, heat only, heat and light at 50-50 ratio, heat and light at 10-90, Electricity & Light, Electricity & heat at various ratios etc. All these variations will have to be reflected in the name.

  358. Andrea Rossi

    Amos:
    I agree with you, but consider that the “onlies” reduce the efficiency to the utilizer.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  359. orsobubu

    Dear Andrea,

    look here at one of the most interesting technologies today, direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide; it’s only a demonstrative plant, but would strongly benefit from LENR competitive electric production:

    http://www.canadianbusiness.com/lists-and-rankings/most-innovative-companies/carbon-engineering/

  360. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Thank you for the interesting information,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  361. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With an assumed COP enough high and direct electricity production and light generation, it should be conceptually possible to do the following:

    a. Configure the Quark to output light
    b. Configure the Quark to output direct electrical power
    c. Convert the electrical power into wall power
    d. Charge a battery from the wall power
    e. Use the battery power to convert to a power form that the Quark can use as an input
    f. Power the input of the Quark

    If you are able to do all of the above, you should produce a light that will run for a year with no electrical input (other than a start-up power). Would not this be the definitive example of the Rossi Effect? (no input, measured output, for a very long time)

  362. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Any assumption in this moment is groundless.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  363. Nils Fryklund

    Dear Andrea!
    1. Is it not possible to have a report about how the 1MW-plant works before sept 2017?
    2. Do you think there will be a seminar in Sweden about E-cat this year?
    3. Is it really so hard, as it says, to prove that E-cat works with good COP?
    Best regards
    Nils Fryklund

  364. Andrea Rossi

    Nils Fryklund:
    If you go to
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    and navigate it thoroughly, you will find the links to all the reports existing about the measurements made with the E-Cats.
    You will also find all the replications made by third parties.
    Surely in Sweden we are starting a strong activity, therefore it is possible that a seminar will be made.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    You mentioned that there would be more reports coming from the testing of the 1MW plants you are currently making for your first customer.

    1. Will the reports be published for the public to read?
    2. Will these be third party reports, or will they be internal reports (similar to your short QuarkX report)
    3. How long until these reports will be made?
    4. How is work going on building these plants?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  368. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- I think so
    2- My report on the quarK is provisional. A real report must come from a different procedure.
    3- We are working in the USA for the industrial plants.

    Dr Rossi,

    Questions still remain unanswered.

    Why if, as Weaver claims, IH never measured any excess heat, has he collected millions

    of his funds, as well as in the Cherokee fund of his partner Tom Darden ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you conducted the test on your new eCat to drive it to self-destruction, similar to what you did with the previous model? If so, any different or unusual results or products?

  380. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Many prototypes self destruct themselves without necessity of us to help them in this purpose… I cannot comment further, before due patent will be filed, to avoid pre-disclosure.

    WaltC:

    about applications in extreme camping situations, if Rossi could be reincarnated back in the XIX century (always a possible LENR utility not to be ruled out), he would have been mentioned by Jules Verne in Journey to the center of the Earth with his Quarks in place of induction coils and Ruhmkorff lamps. The format is so similar that also the classic Levin’s movie should not be re-shooted at all. My only worry is that Quarks are so much tiny and prone in my opinion to break off in salty sands, that I invoke urgently a fix.

  393. Martin Pietsch

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    here in Germany some statements from earlier are still under discussion:

    October 31st, 2011 at 9:01 AM:
    We have started the manufacturing of 1 MW plants. Who wants to buy them whatever its Nation, can contact us at:
    November 23rd, 2011 at 3:14 PM:
    The 1 MW plants are already for sale. The small E-Cats will be for sale within 2 years.
    November 28th, 2011 at 6:48 PM:
    Today we sold in the USA a 1 MW plant which will go to a normal Customer. This installation will be visitable by the qualified public.

    What were the delays at that time and can it happen today also again?

    God bless you,
    Martin

  394. Andrea Rossi

    Martin Pietsch:
    October 31st: yes, it was the plant that eventually has been tested.
    November 23rd: in fact the 1 MW plants were for sale at the time; about the domestic, I assumed 2 years would have been enough for the safety certification, but I was wrong. My mistake.
    November 28th: yes, we sold it, but later the Customer did not pay the installment that had to be paid at the order. Eventually that same plant has been sold to Industrial Heat.
    There are issues that do not depend on me and would need a cristal ball to be foreseen…besides I am sometimes too optimistic, this is a characteristic of mine…and of every inventor.

  400. Marcia

    Dear Andrea:
    Your answer to Frank Acland makes clear who is lying and who is inventing excuses. It also has been published on EW that the trial has been anticipated to June 2017, which allows to assume that the “motion to fly away” has been botched.

    Thank you for your response to Frank Acland, that has been published also on Ecat World. By the way, I read on Ecat World also that the Judge has ordered the start of the trial on June 27 2017.
    Do you think that at that point we will be able to see published the report of the ERV ?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    F.

  409. Andrea Rossi

  410. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    I’m not sure how compact the control electronics is for the QuarkX, however…

    – would it be possible to make a small, portable, self-powered lantern using a QuarkX and a rechargeable battery for the power source?

    If so, I thought it could be useful in 2 ways:

    – One, short-term, as a simple “proof of concept demo” for potential customers. (“See, it really works– No external power source and it’s been shining like that for months.”)

    – Two, longer-term, as a source of light (and heat?) for areas of the world where reliable electricity is a problem (this might include all sorts of casual and extreme camping situations).

    Thanks, WaltC

  411. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    Thank you for your suggestions.
    Our policy, though, will not be oriented to “give proof that it works”, but to sell things that work. In this perspective, certifications are crucial. For industrial plants the certifications are done, for the domestic are not yet. Your suggestions are intelligent, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  412. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,
    I understand your response but enjoy your second remark best: “priority is to make normal things at anomalous costs”.

    Even snakes were used for good (imbeciles too). Moses’ bronze snake on a pole was used to heal the people when looked upon it as a reminder of their faith. This same symbol used today as a medical symbol for healing. (However, I don’t suggest putting imbeciles on a pole.)
    Happy 4th of July!

    I agree.
    Happy 4th to you,

  418. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea Rossi:

    There are some accusations apparently coming from the IH group regarding the 1 MW plant test.

    a) The flow meter used in the test was not fit for purpose
    b) 1 MW plant did not have the required legal authorizations to work
    c) JM Products did not have any employees
    d) IH had proposed another customer to you, but you refused them
    e) JM did not use the heat you produced in any manufacturing process, and the only heat supplied by your plant was 20kW, not 1MW

    Can you respond to any of these points?

    Frank Acland:
    Independently from who is the imbecile that wrote such things, please find hereunder my answers, confined within the limits allowed not to touch issues that have to be discussed exclusively in Court, with due evidence.
    a) The flowmeter used in the test is property of the ERV. The ERV has chosen that instrument based on his experience. It is, by the way, a very common flowmeter, that everybody can buy, even if it is quite expensive. The flowmeter has been certified and after the test the ERV has retrieved it and sent it to make a certification of its margin of error after the test of 1 year, specifically with a flow of water with the same temperature and the same flows of water that we had during the test, minimum, maximum, average. So the ERV told us he was going to do when he retrieved his flowmeter after the shut down of the plant at the end of the test.
    PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THAT:
    The ERV is a nuclear engineer, with experience of nuclear power plants and certification+validation of plants
    b) Obviously it is false, otherwise the plant would have been closed after the inspections
    c) False
    d) Tragicomic: Leonardo Corporation delivered, as per contract, the plant on August 2013, and we were ready to start immediately the test, as a continuation of the preliminar test made in Ferrara two months before with IH. IH had 1 year of time to start the 1 year test, but they always delayed with the excuse that they did not have the authorization from the Healthcare Office of North Carolina, due to the fact that there was the “nuclear reactions” issue. I have been able to get such permission in Florida and therefore I proposed the Customer, that has been accepted by IH. Evidence of it is the contract that IH made with JM. Since the plant was property of IH and it was in the factory of IH, obviously they could choose the Customer they wanted, if they had one.
    e) When you have not the burden to give evidence of what you say, you can say every stupidity. This is exactly the case. Anyway, what counts related to the contract is the energy produced by the 1 MW E-Cat, and such energy gets evidence from the report of the ERV.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Yes, I take a doping that is not listed, so far, among the prohibited substances: I munch before the match a piece of the apples I received as a gift from the Snakes Union. But they are good not even for this. I mean the snakes.
    Today, as well as tomorrow, we work on the QuarkX, but also will get some rest and fun.

  429. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The QuarkX can produce from 0% to 50% of its output as light.

    1) Is the QuarkX light output modulated by (only) changing the operating temperature or by other control inputs?

    2) Is/(are) the wavelength(s) of the light output tunable/controllable?

    3) Does changing the light wavelength(s) impact the light output power?
    That is, if the (peak) frequency of the light changes, does that cause a change in the percentage of the light output?

    Curious regards,

    Joseph Fine

  430. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Since the E-Cat needs a constant external power input for safety reasons, does the E-Cat System have a built-in power conditioner? Is there an optional battery UPS box offered as an option as well?

    The AC commercial power where I live is “dirty” in that we get occasional power surges that can destroy electronic equipment that is not protected by a heavy duty surge suppressor/battery backup system.

    Best wishes for continued progress on your Magnus Opus.

    Egregio Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Una domanda forse un po’ impertinente: la Ditta JM Products che fonte di calore utilizza attualmente, visto che il MegaGatto è chiuso e sigillato?
    Grazie e Buon lavoro.
    Rampado Roberto

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,
    Which source of energy currently uses the company JM Chemical Products, since the MegaCat is closed and sealed upon agreement between your attorneys?
    Thanks and good job.
    Rampado Roberto

  435. Andrea Rossi

    Roberto Rampado:
    The Customer has set up this plant in Doral, Florida, specifically on the purpose to test our technology for at least one year to see if it works, based on an agreement between him and Industrial Heat.
    He knew from the beginning that, due to the experimental nature of the test, such test could have been stopped for any reason and the Agreement signed between him and IH says that the test could be stopped anytime without refunds of any kind could be vindicated by the Customer for the lack of production. He accepted, because for them too, as I said, this was a test.

  437. Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    First and foremost:
    I share what you said and wish a Happy July 4th to all our Readers in the USA !
    The industrial E-Cats are now at the epicenter of the production that has already been certified and validated, while the R&D for all the other ptoducts will go on.
    Allow me to correct you, though: we are not working to show to a bunch of useless guys how good we are. We are working to give to everybody the possibility of a new energy source cheaper and safer.
    We are working to create jobs. We are working because we believe in what we do and to make everybody see the light of the E-Cats, not to enlighten persons who are paid to stay in the dark.
    Besides, snakes are still God’s creatures and they made many useful things: for example, if it was not for them, mankind could not eat apples, while:
    with one apple every day
    keep the physician away.

    Dear Andrea,
    I appreciate most customers need 50 – 60Hz but some customers such as the aviaton industry use higher eg 400Hz (and also DC).
    Obviously, both can be produced from 50/60Hz but if the Quark can be stimulated to operate directly at higher frequencies, it avoids extra complexity and cost to those users.
    The % electric output will probably vary with frequency which could be +ve or -Ve.
    I appreciate you can’t and shouldn’t try to do everything all at once; you must concentrate on those important issues.
    It’s just a thought for the future.
    So thank you very much for your time and all you are doing for us.
    God speed!
    Best wishes
    Dave

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Read on Sifferkoll:
    http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/new-court-documents-on-pacemonitor/

    The Florida Southern District Court has now established a timeline for Leonardo Corporation’s legal dispute with Industrial Heat. The trial itself will begin Sept. 18th 2017.
    While this is certainly an important result, it is a relatively long time from now. May I ask – if I am not being too indiscrete – if you foresee any chance that the interested parties move in the direction of an early settlement out of court?
    With my very warmest regards,

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    You have just replied this to a question by Kenko:

    “The process of certification is in progress for all our products. We obtained already the safety certification for the industrial low temperature E-Cat and for the industrial Hot Cat.”

    Does this mean that the industrial hot cat is in production for sale to interested clients? If the hot cat is in production, is it designed to produce high pressure steam for a Carnot cycle?

  474. Andrea Rossi

    No: we did not yet sell industrial Hot Cat.

  475. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Please excuse my curiosity, but may I ask if this is correct?
    Assuming that you can build 15 QuarkX systems of 100 QuarkX per system, and take readings once per second for each of the 15 systems for a period of 27 days you would achieve 3.5 billion readings, all of which must be the same to succeed with 5 sigma testing.

    It is not simple, but arduous.

    Thank you,

    Tom
    ————————-
    Details, details, details, the devil is in the details… Using this math … (3.5 billion / 3600 seconds per hour readings / 24 hours per day / 100 Quarks per Test Unit (10×10) / 15 test units)

    Dear Andrea,

    I am hoping for you that the certification process will not be as difficult as in the past, especially since you are able to submit the ERV report in full to the certification experts. No accidents, injuries, fires, radiation, or deaths helps. Can you clarify three things please?

    1) Is the certification process that has already been agreed upon (4/23/16) still valid?
    2) Is the certification process for the QuarkX also agreed upon?
    3) Does the certification process for the QuarkX include the domestic version too?

    Thank you,

    Tom

    Ref: April 23, 2016
    “The certification process has already been agreed upon and this time I think the certification, also thanks to the data obtained from the 1 year test, will be not as difficult as in the past. I hope.”

    TIA
    kenko

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Would you suggest to a freshman of a Physics institute to specialize in LENR ?
    Thanks for the suggestion, if you can,
    Louis

  488. Andrea Rossi

    Louis:
    No. LENR are still in a too immature stage for what concerns the theory and all the theories published so far are all but convincing. Besides, there are too many controversies about the LENR that will be overcome only with a solid diffusion in the market, that still is not actual. I strongly suggest that a student specializes in a branch of Physics well consolidated and shared by all the scientific community. After the doctorate, he will have all the possibilities to make the war for the LENR, if he still will want to do it. Before that he has to study the consolidated program. Like Picasso: before painting Guernica he learnt to paint like a Raphael.

    Dear Andrea,
    You recently said that the light of the QuarkX has given you an idea how the Rossi-effect may work. (In other words: you may have seen the light).
    1. Do you make any progress with the theory and
    2. Do you expect it to lead to new patents?
    In the past you said that you were preparing many patents.
    3. Do you expect some of these to be published soon?
    4. Is there any progress in the domestic QuarkX or
    5. Do you expect that the lower temperature Ecat to be the most suitable solution?
    Thank you for answering our questions.

  502. Keith Thomson

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Good news to hear that you are investigating a replacement for the lead shielding of your E-Cat’s.

    Currently many countries around the world are trying to remove or reduce lead content of products placed on the market, for example there is the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) for electronic and electrical equipment placed on the market within Europe, this restricts 6 hazardous materials, lead is one of them.

    For individual E-Cat units to be sold for use in cars or in the home as domestic boilers, many countries would require extensive periods of safety testing, with lots of official / political debate about the advisability of the general public getting access to this technology, (also how to tax it as there will be less cash revenue from fuel duties as petrol / diesel is gradually replaced by E-Cat powered cars). For both cars and boilers you can expect impact testing requirements with examination of what would be exposed to atmosphere / environment if the E-Cat was ruptured (toxic nickel particle powder), you can expect curious people to dismantle them to inspect / fix them themselves or for them to be stolen and opened up. The use of lead as part of the construction will just slow the progress of getting E-Cat units onto the market.

    E-Cats or their descendants with or without lead shielding are likely to be readily adopted in industrial heating units, centralised power generation, shipping, trains and many other large regulated and controlled applications, but the uncontrolled use of individual E-Cats by the public in Europe and America may be delayed for a long time by safety / political concerns, things like use of lead will be one of the many excuses.

    Higher density materials like carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, nickel, nickel alloys, cupronickel, could all be alternative gamma ray absorption materials for surrounding the pressurised active nickel particle core, they would require to be at least double and more the thickness of lead for the same gamma ray halving distance. Heavy wall steel pipes are commonly available; they can have wall thicknesses up to 25% of the pipe outside diameter, in Europe DIN 2448 is a heavy wall heat exchanger pipe available in a variety of pressure quality steel grades. Copper heavy wall pipe can be produced; it’s just an engineering / sourcing exercise. Copper and nickel could be recycled from E-Cat spent nickel powder.

    The use of alternative shielding materials may be seen as expensive but you may find there are advantages, higher melting temperature for shielding with possibly higher operating temperatures, better heat transfer, combining the pressure containment component with the shielding, more readily available and acceptable materials to meet the market requirements.

    Best regards, Keith.

  508. David

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I think it is useful to inform your readers of this article of today on Sifferkoll:
    http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/jones-day-lawyer-drones-on-repeat-in-another-mtd-however-again-showing-the-malicious-intent-of-ih/

    My comment: IH again tries to escape from the litigation. If 1/100 of the slanders and the lies deposited in the blogs by the mad dogs of IH were true, IH would be eager to go in court…the fact that they are trying to delay and to suffocate the litigation makes clear that they are afraid of it.
    Evidently they know that you have evidence that will defeat them in Court, where what counts is not the chattering of the mad dogs, but the real evidence.
    In fact it appears that you are fighting to go in Court, they are trying to run away.
    Godspeed,
    David

  509. Andrea Rossi

    David:

    I cannot comment issues that will have to be disclosed in Court.

  512. Everett Iannotti

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You received many pre-orders for the E-Cats.
    What is the procedure to turn pre-orders into orders ?
    Everett

  513. Andrea Rossi

    Everett Iannotti:
    The pre-orders do not bind who sent them to buy.
    We send a precise offer to them who made the pre-orders, with the price and the sale terms, along with an order form.
    If the potential Customers decide to buy, they send the order signed.
    Leonardo Corporation , before accepting the order, makes a due diligence about the Customer, to verify his industrial and financial consistency.
    If the due diligence is positive, we accept the order. Otherwise, the order is not accepted.
    No expenses of any kind are charged on the potential Customer until the order is accepted.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  514. Christian

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How can IH say they do not accept the last report of the ERV after they used the reports of the first, second and third quarterly reports, equal to the final one, to collect funds ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You have several times mentioned you have not yet reached the Sigma Five. I understand it means that the probability that the positive resut is a random effect is less than one in 3.5 million. Can you explain how to achieve such level of certainty when testing an energy producing device?
    Warm Regards,
    Gunnar Lindberg

  517. Andrea Rossi

    Gunnar Lindberg:
    Making the statistic calculations considering the results we want to achieve as events.
    The situation, by the way, is much more complex than in your quite simplified question.

  518. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your response regarding the fuel/ash analysis. Can you say if the results are consistent with what you expected with a 1-year run of your reactor with a COP of around 50?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

    Nick:
    1- when persons of low level education write slanders in some blog, I simply do not think they have the dignity of an answer from us. Besides: I cannot comment in a blog anything that has to be disclosed and discussed with all the necessary evidence in Court.
    2- thank you for the link.

    Dear Andrea,

    Did you make further analysis of the fuel of the E-Cats or the QuarkX after operations or R&D processes ? If so, can you tell us about the results?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  523. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes, I did, but the results are confidential, so far.

    Hello Andrea,
    Are you working in Sweden? Your schedule seems different lately. How is sigma testing going? What sigma have you achieved so far?

    Thank you for your hard work!
    Tom

  525. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    The work is going on in the USA for what concerns the R&D on the QuarkX and the construction of the first units. Our Swedish Team is preparing the work that will be performed in Sweden for the European market.
    We did not yet reach the Sigma Five I need. But we are working very well.
    Thank you for your kind sustain.

  526. Tony De Rota

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    I have found this information, making an investigation of the ERV that Leonardo Corporation and IH have chosen to make the test of one year on the E-Cat.
    Can you confirm if this information is correct?
    Name: Fabio Penon
    Age: 56
    Education: Doctorate in nuclear engineering in the University of Bologna when he was 23 years old with the following rating: 110/110 Summa cum Laude
    Professional experience: as a nuclear engineer worked in a nuclear power plant; eventually became expert in validation and certification of plants
    Deonthological record: his career is flawless and never has been criticized for errors or mistakes or improper conduct on course of his professional tasks
    Questions:
    1- Can you confirm this record is correct, beyond any possible doubt ?
    2- The reports he made after the first, the second and the third quarter of the test year reported the same results of the last report ?
    3- Did IH receive all these report after , respectively, 3, 6, 9 months from the start up of the test ?
    4- if yes, did IH send you any complaint related to the methodology of the measurements made by the ERN, Ing. Fabio Penon ?
    Thank you if you can answer.
    T.D.R.

  527. Andrea Rossi

    Tony De Rota:
    1- yes, your information is correct
    2- substantially yes
    3- yes, as well as Leonardo Corporation: the ERV has sent the quarterly reports to IH and Leonardo Corporation after every quarter, along with the invoices for his quarterly work. The invoices have been paid from Industrial Heat and from leonardo Corporation.
    4- No, Industrial Heat never sent us in any form complaints about the first three quarterly reports, or about the related measurements made by the ERV. On the contrary, Mr Tom Darden has made public conferences confirming that the test on course was obtaining good results and directed the visits of his investors to the 1 MW plant in operation during the test, expressing very positive opinion about the test on course. Consequently he obtained huge investments from his investors.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Rossi,

    Seen on ECW?

    ” .. Industrial Heat presented the ERV report to the Chinese and Woodford at a late stage as proof of value during the test to solicit investment.

    It is possible .. that IH assumed they could just not pay Rossi at the end of the test and if problems arose with this strategy just go bankrupt? .. “

  536. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You indicate that the latest eCat reactor can output light as a possible and adjustable output. Is the light monochromatic (a single color) or is it chromatic (multi-spectral)?

    A possible application that comes to mind is the “personal warmer” where an adjustable <200W thermal output run from conventional batteries would be ideal in a cold weather application to keep one warm. Such a heating device running from a battery but with an energy gain of about 200 would be well received.

    Nickel-Hydrogen Reaction Endurance Tests Using a Flow Calorimeter
    A. G. Parkhomov
    Experimental Design Laboratory
    KIT
    English translation by Bob Higgins of Accuiti Science & Engineering

    Results:
     A flow calorimeter was constructed having a computer acquired flow and temperatures at the inlet and outlet. Calibration measurements showed that the heat measurement error did not exceed 3%.
     This calorimeter was used to test six reactors with fuel based on nickel and lithium aluminum hydride. One worked 38 days.
     Excess heat was in the range of 20-65 watts. The excess heat versus the electrical consumption varied between 5% and 20%.
     The excess energy in the reactor, calculated from integration of excess power over 38 days, was about 100 MJ (30 kWH)
     Attempts to increase the excess heat power led to the destruction of the reactors.

    This is an unanswered Question, can you comment ?

    ** Why if, as Weaver claims, Industrial Heat has never measured any excess heat …

    have they collected millions from his investors .. in Deep River Venture Capital, whose CEO is Mr Weaver,

    Sosby:
    Those who repeat the same things even after due answers have given evidence of their errors, do not look for truth, they are just looking for the sale of the Roman Colosseum to their investors.

  559. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    For us, your blog followers, progress feels to have slowed down since you have revealed the QuarkX details. I am sure that is not the case, therefore just some questions to update us, which I hope you are able to answer:
    1. In the past you mentioned that a new Hot-cat based plant would be constructed for a UK customer. Do you believe that will still happen this year?
    2. Are you now producing 1 MW E-cat plants in the US or elsewhere and can you give us an idea how many will be delivered this year?
    3. Are you preparing for a multiple QuarkX and how many QuarkX’es will it contain?
    4. Can you tell something about the QuarkX driven jet?
    I am sure you must be under some pressure due to the law suit. I hope everything will work out fine for you and wish you all the luck and a quick end with this affaire.
    Stay healthy! Kind regards, Gerard

  560. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- yes
    2- yes, we are manufacturing it in the USA
    3- premature to answer
    4- very premature, but possible: at least now we know this
    Thank you for your sympathy,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  561. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    On new product consumer product certification versus certification of a component upgrade to an existing product, is there any time savings advantage if the E-Cat products are ADDED to an existing product? For example replacing the gas power for a hot water heater, or a furnace, or a electric generator (such as the Australian WhisperGen). These products have been certified for consumer use as they have built-in safety systems that have been already approved.

    Best of luck on your new consumer product certification applications.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  562. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G. Zavela:
    It works the opposite way: if a product to be certified is made by components that are all certified, it helps, not the contrary.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for your consideration and clear statement. There in no more room to speculate that topic. In my head thing is clear an no need to try this path further. I wrote longer comment elsewere, you know were to look if like to.

    I understand you had to slightly edit my post, I understand the reason no problem there. Maybe in other occations could be decent to add some marker like ‘part removed by moderator’or something that other readers understands why result might look clumsy.

    Since this topic is now clear, I vanish from here for a while. Maybe until I see something concrete proven to ask about. Like Mats Lewan et.al visiting your lab or so. Before that I have no questions about Quark-X or else. I hope you understand such principle.

    All the best, what ever is ahead of you both parties

    Can you settle on this base ?
    R.S.

  585. Andrea Rossi

    Ruby Shale:
    As usual, the guys of Industrial Heat are ready to sell what they do not own: now they are offering us to buy back our license, the license that they do not have anymore ( see the press release made few weeks ago from our Attorney John Annesser). I wonder if they will try to sell the Colosseum of Rome as well.
    IH has no more any license related to out IP and whomever is interested to us in North America, Central America, South America, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and Emirates must contact exclusively:
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com

    Dear Andrea,

    If you are still interested in electricity production via steam from your Ecats.

    As it is a large step to go from the steam pressure and temperature of your existing thermal 1MW Ecat plant to the high pressure / temperature steam requirements for electricity producing turbines within power stations, a commercial intermediate step could be to use the twin rotary screw expander / electricity generator of the company Heliex Power.

    Heliex Power Ltd of Scotland is a spinout company from City University London, who have taken existing compressor technology then mathematically optimised and developed patented new generation “N” profile rotors for use as a screw steam expander, this expander can process wet steam and liquid water having fluctuating mass flow rates and pressures (steam pressure up to 25 barA, temperature 150 to 300 degrees C), the wet process fluid will also lubricate the rotors. The screw expander is then attached to a standard 3-phase 4-pole electrical generator (can be 50 or 60 Hz output).

    The rotary screw expander generator is capable of operating with low pressure wet steam conditions where turbine generators are not suitable.

    Heliex Power first customer installation was in may 2013, the units are now in production and on sale, units have even been installed in Italy, one at a glass plant near Milan and one at a steel mill.

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Yesterday you wrote here that Leonardo Corporation has organized a scientific commettee. Are all the members nuclear physicists like Dr Pierre Clauzon ?
    Will they make experiments with the QuarkX too ?
    Cheers,
    JPR

  591. Andrea Rossi

    JP Renoir:
    All the members of Leonardo Corporation’s Scientific Commettee are either nuclear physicists or engineers expert of the matter.
    Yes, they will work on the QuarkX.

    The strong force is fiction. For example, the so-called anomalous scattering is magnetic. Indeed, it suffices to change, in the Rutherford formula, the -2 electric by -6 magnetic, to solve the problem. Indeed, in log-log coordinates, one has two straight lines with slopes -2, electric, and -6 magnetic. See my paper: Anomalous Rutherford Scattering Solved Magnetically

    It seems that there a problem: my post disappeared when I post comment

  593. Andrea Rossi

    Schaeffer:
    We did not receive any other comment from you, only other 2 copies of this same comment, perfectly equal to it, arrived few minutes after it: for obvious reasons, the 2 copies have been spammed.

    As usually, the guys of IH are ready to sell what they do not own. Now they want to sell to us our license, offering to us to buy back the license that they do not have anymore ( see the press release of our Attorney made few weeks ago). I wonder if they will try to sell also the Colosseum of Rome.
    IH has no more any license of us and anybody that is interested to our products in North America, Central America, South America, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and Emirates can contact Leonardo Corporation, either going to
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    or contacting
    info@leonardocorp1996.com
    I have received other comments on the same issue, this answer is valid for all. I will not return to issues connected with facts to be discussed in Court.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for reading my previous posts. Since I have plead both parties IH and You here and in lenr-forum to try to open sensitive discussions one more time before Court proceedings starts.

    I feel guilty on trying to involve in this even total outsider, but with common goal; save the planet using shortest path.

    I feel that I have involved quite much, you both parties are grown up experienced business people and you can act on if there is a point on doing that.

    With the hope that everybody does the right thing
    Best Regards,
    Argon

  597. Andrea Rossi

    Argon:
    Thank you for your sympathy, but I think it is not proper I comment further on this issue. This case has to be resolved in Court, based on the situation we have now and, for obvious reasons, I cannot comment on issues that have to be exposed in Court. Also, I have not a crystall ball to know how the situation will be in future. As you see, I have edited your comment, taking off issues connected to arguments to be discussed in Court, not in the blogs.

    There is only one thing that really counts for us: the fact that the QuarkX enters in the market, as you hope, by this year 2016, at least in the industrial version.
    All the other consideration are a loss of time and you are totally right staying focused on your work.

    Lest we forget your dream Andrea, now shared by myself:
    ——————————————————-

    Dear Readers of the JoNP:

    It’s 00.00.01″ of January 1st 2016.

    Update: the 1 MW E-Cat is stable and in ssm, the E-Cat X is very promising and still operating and making heat, electricity.

    The E-Cat X is very close to the design of the core of the apparatus described in the US Patent, I mean the wafer.

    It has been engineered to resist to very high temperatures.

    The electricity exits directly from the wafer.

    As I said, several nights ago I had a dream.

    The E-Cat X had been produced in billions pieces, each of them assembled with others in various combinations to make public lamps:
    a town was totally illuminated by the E-Cat X and from every lamp a network of pipes and of wires was able to distribute heat and electricity to the houses.

    In that town there were about 1 million lamps each of them of 500 watts, consuming about 50 watts; consequently, there were 450 MWh/h produced, of which about half were turned into heat distributed to the houses through a network of well insulated pipes, running underground, like optic fibers, the other half was used to enlight the town and to distribute electricity to the households.

    The cost of the E-Cat X was around 50 $/kW of power, due to the production of billions of pieces per year in all the world, with tens of thousands of jobs. Less taxes were paid by the people, due to the saves derived from low pollution and low energy cost for public services.

    Millions of persons were also earning money selling E-Cats and every owner of E-Cats was saving money in utilities ( electricity, heat, light).

    Then I heard the alarm clock:
    it was time to return to the factory, to make true the dream. F9.

    Happy new year, I love you all.

    I am drinking my cup of Korbel champagne, then i have to return to the gauges of the plant. She is good, tonight.

    Again, Happy 2016,
    May God bless you all,
    Andrea

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

    You mean that the insights obtained by research in hot fusion could lead to LENR ?
    For example by improved theoretical insights and by the development of optimized computer models that are specific to the discipline.

    Do you think the experts in hot fusion know how the Rossi Effect works?

    It is perhaps time for reflection. At research centers there are certainly ideas that nobody exploits. Not every professor should become an entrepreneur.

    Especially in nuclear research one should not even hit nails into a wall without a certified hammer, starting with a permission to enter the room. Let alone that he should take the crooked nails home.

    It is not always efficient, but nobody should be blamed for it.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  614. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    In our scientific commettee of Leonardo Corp. we have the honour to have a top level scientist that worked in the Cadarache plant. Obviously we have always to learn.
    I wnat to limit this comment to the positive things, the ones that can create synergies.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  615. orsobubu

    In 2014, already Rossi gave here his opinion on hot fusion research:
    ———–
    1- the scientists who have dedicated their life to the hot fusion endevour are extremely good, for sure among the best nuclear physicists around
    2- the ITER and the NIF have generated the development of technological applications in other fields, thanks to the research: paradigmatic example is the development in the field of the superconductors
    3- the money invested has not been wasted, because it is gone in work made by workers, which means wages
    4- the hot fusion is more difficult to obtain than the LENR.
    5- I know a very high level scientist who has worked hardly for the ITER, and still is strongly interested to the LENR and has worked in experiments with the E-Cat. I have learnt much from him. We have much to learn from the hot fusion and I have a great respect for all the great scientists working for it
    6- the hot fusion plants are also battlefields in which new generations of nuclear physics maintain their readiness for other applications; for example, NIF physicists are working on the decommissioning of nuclear weapons.
    ———-
    I’m glad Andrea has no more all that time available to answer so in detail to his supporter base! I can foresee the situation will rapidly worsen in coming months; being so engaged in running his business, I bet he will not hire a secretary, instead he will compile and maintain a regularly up to date FAQ where he will expose his opinions and philosophy on various topics, and establish a new F13 shortcut, meaning ie: “For the related issue on Hot Fusion, cf. Rossi FAQ reference Issue 2, 2016, Vol. IV, page 356, n. 13,756

    Here are some interesting comments to his statement, both favorable and not, from Frank Acland’ blog (http://www.e-catworld.com/2014/03/05/rossi-defends-hot-fusion-research/):

    Rossi has shown in his response that he is much more wise than the characture of him that the mass media often paints. It is not about him sucking up to the establishment. It shows he has a broader view of science, respect for reality, respect for research, respect for people, and he is above petty infighting between various disciplines. He knows that the goal is the same, and there are possibly more ways than one to reach it. And certainly figuratively pooping in the well never advanced anyone’s future prospects, especially when you and your friends might need to drink from the well at some point

    Rossi is correct, money invested in high-tech (space, hot fusion, large infrastructures) produces spin-offs which fertilize the whole economy and keep highly educated people at work as opposed to subsidies for agriculture or consumer products which only produce market distortions and surplus goods. A different question is the allocation of funds to different high-tech projects. In pure space science work peer review works quite satisfactorily, but in manned space and commercial space politics dominates the decisions. Unfortunately in fusion research also politics dictate the distribution of funds where peer review would give a much more balanced approach over many different concepts (inclusive cold fusion)

    Fear of vulnerability is an important key to the “why” of extreme levels of fusion research grant money. It is not entirely about making power for the world, nor making sure that the old A-bombs will still work. These are side issues. It is also about making sure enough brain power is still available should new bombs need to be designed and built. The old-timers that made the first ones are nearly all dead. That expertise cannot simply be replaced should the “need” arise to make some more. It needs to be drawn from a pool of existing experts in the theories and practices required to make them

    Laser Inertial Confinement Hot Fusion is a test bed for nuclear weapons research and verification. It will never be a commercial reactor producing electricity in my view

    Dr. Robert W. Bussard, 2006, frmr Assistant Director Controlled Thermodynamic Reaction Division, Atomic Energy Commission – US Department of Energy: “One of the biggest obstacles is the world-wide tokamak lobby, which perpetuates the fraud that Hirsch, Trivelpiece and I foisted on the country in the 1970’s when we started the big tokamak ball rolling. Magnetic confinement fusion is a misnomer, as magnetic fields can NOT confine a plasma, only constrain its motion towards walls. The entire history of the MagConf program has been to reduce transport to neo-classical (not turbulent or instability-driven) losses. And THEN the machines are all inherently and inevitably huge and cost too much and make too much power to ever be economically useful — as the utilities have been telling the AEC/DoE for 30 years. No matter, the global tokamak program provides jobs for hudreds of thousands of people in many countries, and is a safe place to put political pork funding, simply because it IS NO THREAT TO OIL – it won’t ever work, but it sounds good to the untutored public…”

  616. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    I agree with your analysis about the Hot Fusion. About the great scientist that hot fusion has given to us, obviously you talk of Dr Pierre Clauzon ( Commissariat Pour l’Energie Atomique, Paris- France) now also a member of the scientific commettee of Leonardo Corporation that soon will work with the QuarkX too. Here is a man from whom we can learn.

    Dear Andrea,

    Your blog readers may find the topic Frank at ECW has setup to discuss my QuarkX powered Remote Area plant of interest:

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/06/22/remote-area-disaster-relief-acdc-power-heated-air-warm-water-and-clean-water-e-cat-quarkx-system-concept-engineer48/

    As far as I know this is the 1st forum to discuss a commercial applications of your LENR reactors.

    I intend to set up a Not For Profit business to manufacture the plants and to do direct distribution to remote community groups with locals trained to do basic plant maintenance plus unplug & replace module failure recovery.

    Your encouragement, support & advise is always highly appreciated.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your clear reply on my question about discussing with IH one more time.
    I know you are tempered man as IH representatives may also be, but I plea you to read carefully what I dared to write without anyones permission to lenr forum as an individual observer.

    Please read it with great care and give this small chance a possibility to grow. In my opinion it would be fastest route to markets and main goal ‘save the planet’. Resources would go to development of lenr instead wasting them to endless legal fights.

    I know you don’t normally read forums, but Link is there:
    https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/3362-Have-IH-let-their-E-Cat-License-lapse-by-inaction/?postID=25695#post25695

    As I said there it would be discussion between You and IH representatives, and all other discussion in various forums must be totally dismissed, because impossible to know who are behind the nicknames and with what (uncontrollable)intentions.

    Whatever You and IH decide to do, I just hope that wisdom you both have overtakes emotions and any negative thinking.

  623. Travis Hint

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I disagree with you about the hot fusion issue regarding the jobs: jobs must be productive to be positive for the economy, while jobs created by the hot fusion research and development has produced nothing, but a mass of things useful for nothing. It is a waste of money.
    Travis

  624. Andrea Rossi

    Travis Hint:
    Not true: many information has been produced for example in the electromagnetism.
    Warm Regards,

  625. EXE

    Regarding the Hot Fusion development, being true that the result is far from the desired, I think the outcome is much more that the jobs that were created. There has not been any development in Physics or any other field coming from this taxpayer money?

    It would be like measure the success of mission to the moon by the rocks that they took back to the earth.

    Dear Mr Rossi if I may ask the following:

    Since Court dates are closing, and no matter who is right, that could take lot of time, money and your own energy away from your industrialization plans and Quark-X research.
    Can you in any conditions think of discussing with IH about solving your dispute by negotiations before it goes to court?

    Since beginning of days when humans climbed down from trees, there have been situations where one or both parties have felt hurt or mistreated but by putting feelings behind and being wise and rational humans have overcome even bigger disputes.

    All the best whatever you choose.

    Hello Andrea,

    Where Does the Light Come From? I gathered some of my favorite scriptures for your enjoyment, they are based on about 60% of all the references in the bible to the light from God Almighty. I really think you will enjoy them, I sure hope so. – Tom

    “The E-Cat X had been produced in billions pieces, each of them assembled with others in various combinations to make public lamps: a town was totally illuminated by the E-Cat X and from every lamp a network of pipes and of wires was able to distribute heat and electricity to the houses.” – The Dream of Andrea Rossi

    “He gives us light!”

    (Psalm 118:27) Jehovah is God; He gives us light. Join in the festival procession with branches in hand, Up to the horns of the altar.

    (Psalm 119:105) Your word is a lamp to my foot, And a light for my path.

    (John 8:12, 13) Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life.” So the Pharisees said to him: “You bear witness about yourself; your witness is not true.”

    (Matthew 5:14-16) You are the light of the world. A city cannot be hid when located on a mountain. People light a lamp and set it, not under a basket, but on the lamp-stand, and it shines on all those in the house. Likewise, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your fine works and give glory to your Father who is in the heavens.

    (Isaiah 60:3, 4)  Nations will go to your light And kings to your shining splendor.   Raise your eyes and look all around you! They have all been assembled; they are coming to you. From far away your sons keep coming, And your daughters being supported on the hip.

    (Matthew 17:1, 2) Six days later Jesus took Peter and James and his brother John along and led them up into a lofty mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone as the sun, and his outer garments became brilliant as the light.

    (Isaiah 2:5) O house of Jacob, come, Let us walk in the light of Jehovah.

    (John 1:9-13) The true light that gives light to every sort of man was about to come into the world. He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him, but the world did not know him. He came to his own home, but his own people did not accept him. However, to all who did receive him, he gave authority to become God’s children, because they were exercising faith in his name. And they were born, not from blood or from a fleshly will or from man’s will, but from God.

    (Isaiah 5:20, 21) Woe to those who say that good is bad and bad is good, Those who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, Those who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those wise in their own eyes And discreet in their own sight!

    (Isaiah 9:2) The people who were walking in the darkness Have seen a great light. As for those dwelling in the land of deep shadow, Light has shone on them.

    (Isaiah 24:15) That is why they will glorify Jehovah in the region of light;
    In the islands of the sea they will glorify the name of Jehovah the God of Israel.

    (Isaiah 30:26) And the light of the full moon will become like the light of the sun; and the light of the sun will become seven times stronger, like the light of seven days, in the day that Jehovah binds up the breakdown of his people and heals the severe wound from the blow he inflicted.

    (Isaiah 42:6) “I, Jehovah, have called you in righteousness; I have taken hold of your hand. I will safeguard you and give you as a covenant for the people And as a light of the nations,

    (Isaiah 42:16) I will lead the blind in a way that they do not know And cause them to tread on unfamiliar paths. I will turn the darkness before them into light And turn the rugged terrain into level land. This is what I will do for them, and I will not abandon them.”

    (Isaiah 45:7)   I form light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, Jehovah, am doing all these things.

    (Isaiah 49:6) . . .It is not enough that you are my servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob And to bring back those who were preserved of Israel. I have also given you as a light of nations, So that my salvation may reach the ends of the earth.”

    (Isaiah 50:11) Look! All of you who are igniting a fire, Making sparks fly, Walk in the light of your fire, Among the sparks you have set ablaze. This is what you will have from my hand: In sheer pain you will lie down.

    (Isaiah 51:4) Pay attention to me, O my people, And give ear to me, my nation. For a law will go out from me, And my justice I will establish as a light to the peoples.

    (Isaiah 58:8) . . .your light will shine through like the dawn, And your healing will spring up quickly. Your righteousness will go before you, And the glory of Jehovah will be your rear guard.

    (Isaiah 58:10) If you grant to the hungry what you yourself desire And satisfy those who are afflicted, Then your light will shine even in the darkness, And your gloom will be like midday.

    (Isaiah 60:1) Arise, O woman, shed light, for your light has come. The glory of Jehovah shines on you.

    (Isaiah 60:19-21) For you the sun will no longer be a light by day, Nor will the shining of the moon give you light, For Jehovah will become to you an eternal light, And your God will be your beauty. No more will your sun set, Nor will your moon wane, For Jehovah will become for you an eternal light, And the days of your mourning will have ended. And all your people will be righteous; They will possess the land forever. They are the sprout that I planted, The work of my hands, for me to be beautified.

    (Psalm 18:28) For it is you who light my lamp, O Jehovah, My God who lights up my darkness.

    (Psalm 27:1) Of David. Jehovah is my light and my salvation. Whom should I fear Jehovah is the stronghold of my life. Whom should I dread

    (Psalm 36:9-12)   With you is the source of life; By your light we can see light. Continue showing your loyal love to those who know you, And your righteousness, to the upright in heart. Do not let the foot of the haughty tread on me Or the hand of the wicked drive me away. There the wrongdoers have fallen; They have been knocked down and cannot get up.

    (Psalm 43:3) Send out your light and your truth. May these lead me; May they guide me to your holy mountain and to your grand tabernacle.

    (Psalm 89:15) Happy are the people who know the joyful shouting. O Jehovah, they walk in the light of your face.

    (Psalm 97:4) His lightning bolts light up the land; The earth sees it and trembles.

    (Psalm 97:11, 12) Light has flashed up for the righteous And rejoicing for those upright in heart. Rejoice in Jehovah, you righteous ones, And give thanks to his holy name.

    (Psalm 105:39) He spread a cloud to screen them off And fire to give light by night.

    (Psalm 112:4)   To the upright he shines like a light in the darkness. He is compassionate and merciful and righteous.

    (Psalm 119:129, 130) Your reminders are wonderful. That is why I observe them. The disclosure of your words brings light, Giving understanding to the inexperienced.

    (Luke 8:16) “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a vessel or puts it underneath a bed, but he puts it on a lamp-stand so that those who come in may see the light.

    Tom Conover:
    About Light and the Word of God:
    this is my personal prayer every morning, related to the citation I prefer:
    “Holy Father,
    you shade on me the light from St Mark,
    who wrote ‘ when you pray for something, you must believe you got it, and you will get it’
    I pray you to help me to heal from cancer the children of yours with the money I will make with The Effect
    and I believe I got it.”
    This happens every morning, no exceptions, when the sun rises, since when I had been put in prison for crimes I have been eventually acquitted from . It gave me and gives me force.
    Thank you for your inspiring comment, at last we work in that context.

    Thank you for your intriguing strategy-lectures. Maybe they will turn out to be useful for something. My personal strategy would be make scissors that instead of steel blades have laser beams: burn the paper and melt the stone, the match is over ( patent pending ).

    Dear Andrea,

    Based on your kind and patient answers to my many questions, this is my 1st cut QuarkX Remote Area / Disaster power system diagram. Other than the QuarkX reactor, the design uses standard off the shelf components & modules. The design doesn’t use the QuarkX reactor’s light output as at this time that output is very unknown and there are ample high efficiency light sources that can operate from either the high quality AC or DC outputs.

    I put it into the public domain as to inspire others to explore this application. The world market is more than big enough for many such systems and companies.

    I have also emailed you with an intention to purchase 3 x 10kW QuarkX reactor systems ASAP. Hopefully they will be available in 2016?

    Engineer48:
    Thank you for your suggestion.
    As you well know, I do not know yet when the E-Cat QuarkX will be ready to be a product. I said that I hope by 2016 to be ready with an industrial application.

    Andrea Rossi and readers:

    Something different:

    We are all awaiting further results from the new generation QuarkX module, continuing development of the Rossi-Cook Theory of operation and other serious matters such as the important legal activity in Florida Southern District Court.

    Instead, I want to bring attention to a lighter subject:

    The game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors”.

    Or similarly named contests (e.g. Stone, Paper, Knife).

    Apparently, some strategies can improve your chances of winning these games, although if all participants know the optimum strategy, it is difficult to see how there can be an advantage to anyone.

    I hope these articles (links below) can ease some of the anxiety for all of us while we are waiting for a positive F8 and F9.

    Dear Ovidiu Herlea,

    Andrea’s replies to me make it very clear the QuarkX reactor’s primary electrical output is AC at either 50Hz or 60Hz and it is stable.

    Of course there are further questions about waveshape and voltage but what I have is enough to start doing a remote area / disaster QuarkX reactor design that produces both electrical and thermal energy outputs and that the AC output, if properly conditioned, can be used to charge the primary battery that is driving the 240vac 50 or 60Hz 3 phase inverter that drives the reactor.

  642. Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Your answers to questions by Engineer48 left me puzzled. If you don’t mind, please try to answer 3 other questions:

    1) Is the QuarkX direct AC output a single frequency, or is it mixed?
    2) If it is single, is it a multiple of the input frequency?
    3) If it is mixed, did you perform a Fourier analysis?

    Thank you and I understand if you must keep things secret for now.

    Best Regards,
    Ovidiu Herlea

    Probably in Granada (Spain) the EU will make another Hot Fusion R&D center, similar to the plant of Caradache (France).
    The initial investment will be one billion Euro. Your opinion?

  645. Andrea Rossi

    L.S.:
    After 50 years still not a single anomalous energy production sign and still billions will be invested at expenses of the taxpayers. Few days ago I read from an imbecile that our work doesn’t merit trust because after 5 years we still are waiting the E-Cat massively diffused and still read about a new R&D… I wonder: does this guy know that we did not use a single cent of the Taxpayer, or the reason of such hostility is exactly this ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S. I totally respect the work of the Hot Fusion scientists and wish them good luck !

  646. Alfonso Troisi

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on the important result of the Quark-X cat. If I may, I would like to ask some questions:

    1. When are you going to deliver the next industrial e-cats that have been ordered?
    2. Has the construction of the robotized lines started yet?
    3. When will they be ready?
    4. Will the robotized lines be able to build all e-cat models?
    5. Are you getting closer to beating your wife at tennis?
    6. Has a date been set for your day in court?

    If I may, you’re devolving money to institutes that treat kids with cancer. This is a noble cause. I would like to share my opinion. I have read and follow the work of researcher T. Collin Campbell and I admire and support his efforts to inform people that a diet as much free of animal products as possible is of great importance to prevent most of the diseases (heart related diseases, cancer, diabetes, among others) that are common in industrialized countries.
    I think people deserve to know that there is a way to drastically lower the risk of contracting this deadly diseases. WITHOUT MEDICINE, WITHOUT SPENDING MONEY IN PILLS. JUST EATING WELL: WHOLE PLANT BASED DIET.

    Thank you and my best wishes for you, your family and your team.

  648. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Thank you for your insight.
    Tha answers are impossible without an analysis of the specific context. For example, the Carnot cycle is surely more efficient in a context in which light and heat are not useful, but not in a tri-generetion context.
    This reminds me the joke of the trivia: ” Is it more strong a knife, a piece of paper or a stone ?” and the answer is: ” It depends, because the paper envelopes the stone, the knife cuts the paper, but the stone breaks the knife”.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks for your recent clarifications and exciting answers.

    If I may a few more:

    1) Is the QuarkX direct AC output the same frequency as the excitation frequency? Ie 50Hz in = 50Hz out and 60Hz in = 60Hz out?

    2) Or is the AC output freq selectable via the control software?

    3) The input must be AC between 50 and 60Hz or can the reactor handle a wider range of input AC frequencies?

    4) The input can accept US single phase 120vac?

    5) The input can accept US phase to phase 208vac?

    6) The input can handle EU single phase 240vac?

    7) The input can handle EU phase to phase 416vac?

    Thanks again for your answers.

  653. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:

    Dear Andrea,

    In reference to my earlier questions:

    1) Each QuarkX reactor needs 240vac single phase to operate it and the control system?

    2) Is DC or AC output available directly from the reactor, without needing any type conversion? Ie rectification for AC to obtain DC or inversion for Dc to obtain AC?

    3) If AC is available directly from the reactor, is the output frequency dependent on the input frequency or is it some other frequency?

    4) For either DC or AC output, is the output voltage stable under different loads or will voltage regulation be needed to provide stable direct DC or AC output?

    I have a number of potential remote area QuarkX projects currently under design, including direct water extraction from the atmosphere and water purification, and your news that QuarkX reactors will be commercially available in 2016 is REALLY good and exciting news!

    Is it too soon to publish the spectrum of the light output? I ask as if the spectrum fits, it may be able to assist water purification.

  656. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    1- not necessarily
    2- AC
    3- can’t answer, but we can obtain 50 or 60 Hz
    4- we give stable output
    5- to soon to publish the spectrum
    Disclaimer: even if the preliminar R&D has been completed, more R&D is necessary to verify and confirm the data.
    Warm Regards,

  660. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Another what-if calculation:

    These numbers are only one of many possibilities.

    Start with 500 QuarkX modules. ( Level 1 units ) each with an Input Drive of 0.5 Watts.

    Required Total Input Power = 250 Watts (Electric).

    Output power characteristic: 10% E (electrical), 90% Th (thermal). F8

    Each Level 1 module output: 100 W, 10 Watts-E, 90 Watts-Th.

    Total level 1 output (500 modules): 50 kW = 5 kW-E and 45 kW-Th.

    The level 1 electrical output can drive up to 10,000 QuarkX Level-2 modules

    Level 2 total output: 10,000*(100) W = 1000 kW (1 MW), 100 kW-E and 900 kW Th

    Electrical output (Level 2) of 100 kW-E can drive up to 200,000 Level-3 modules.

    Level-3 total output is 20,000 kW (20 MW);

    This can be configured as 2,000 kW-E + 18,000 kW-Th or, 20,000 kW-Th (20 MW-Th).

    If the Level-3 output is only thermal kW, total thermal power of all levels is:
    45 kW + 900 kW + 20,000 kW = 20,945 kW = 20.945 MW-Th.

    It is suggested that you could use Brayton* cycle turbines to obtain higher efficiencies at 500-700 degrees C temperatures (e.g. 40-50% vs 10%)

    1) Is it less expensive to use turbo-generators or use hundreds of thousands of QuarkXes to produce 5-10 MW of electricity?

    2) If instead of using 500 Level-1 QuarkXes as input, if 10,000 “Level-2” QuarXes were used as the new “Level-1”, input drive power requirement would increase to 5 kW. Would it be a good choice (safety, economics) to exchange 500 QuarkXes with an input demand of only 250 W for a more sizeable but still relatively economical 5 kW backup power supply?

    3) If you don’t use a turbine, there is also 2 MW of electricity and about 19 MW of heat. Do you think that configuration would be in demand? (The market will decide.)

    Powerful regards,

    Joseph Fine

  661. Engineer48

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks for your previous advise the QuarkX reactor requires 240vac 3 phase to operate.

    Does this mean:

    1) Each QuarkX reactor rod needs 240vac 3 phase to operate?

    Or

    2) Each QuarkX reactor rod needs 2 phases (a&b or a&c or b&c 415vac) to operate?

    May I also ask is the prime QuarkX reactor electrical output DC or AC? Ie if AC then DC requires rectification or if DC then AC requires an inverter?

  662. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    1- not necessarily
    2- no
    3- I do not understand the question: can you rephrase ?

    I have read with interest the comments by Sebastian, and your interest in the answer, regarding the heating and lighting of greenhouses in northern latitudes for the production of fresh fruit & vegetables. The worlds leaders in greenhouse technology and production for fresh fruit & vegetables are the Dutch. They are the worldwide leaders and export their technology throughout the world. I am sure you will find them very receptive to any suggestions for heating and lighting as it would make them number 1 in the world in exports 12 months of the year, at present they are limited by the expense, though subsidized, heating and lighting in the winter months.

  677. Uwe Doms:

    You say: ” I am (was) worried about job losses in the global industry because of disruptive LENR technology, especially in the fossil fuel sector and dependent industries …… ”

    Please think of it this way: there have been innumerable inventions in the past 100 years that have greatly reduced the input of labour. Perhaps one of the most outstanding examples is agriculture. In the late 18th century almost half the population was employed in agricuture. Last time I checked (a long time ago) it was down to 2% in the United States. The 48% who have ‘lost’ their jobs in agriculture are now employed producing other products/services which greatly improve our lives. Without those ‘job losses’ in agricuture we could not have these new products because there would be no one to produce them. Those workers now working with these new products would still be toiling on farms.

    Living standards depend primarily on improvements in labour productivity – that is: removing people from less productive activities to much more productive ones.

    The people currently employed in the fossil fuel industries are mostly highly capable people, and will do a wonderful job doing other things we are unable to do now because the US economy is approaching full employment.

    To the extent LENR frees up labour from existing means of energy production, the nation’s productivity – and necessarily living standards – will be appreciably improved. (My estimate, for what it is worth, is that LENR alone may increase living standards by, very roughly, 10%).

    Unemployment in the US is currently low – at 4.7% – despite all the labour saving inventions of the past 100 years. Finding ways to reduce labour input into the production process should be celebrated rather than feared.

    Rodney.

    Hi Andrea,
    Quark-X has 100x power density and COP than your old e-cat.

    1. Can we infer from this that you have finally discovered the missing Quark-Y particle.
    2. Is the discovery preliminar or confirmed.
    3. Does your partner care about theoretical advances or only commercial products.
    4. If, nay when, you win judgment against IH, will you donate some of the money to cancer kids.

    Dear Andrea Rossi. Many thanks for your kind reply to a question of mine wherein you replied thus:

    “For now we are working on our 100 W module, when the verifications on it will have been made, we’ll see. But I propend for the maintainment of a 100 W module assembly concept.”

    Is the 100 Watt output energy made up of thermal and electric or only electric?

    Do you foresee a commercial production of a Quark X unit by the end of this year?

    May I wish you success in your venture for your own sake and also for humanity’s sake.

  685. Andrea Rossi

    Albert Ellul:
    The 100 W of power are related to the total power, of which only the 20% max can be turned into electric power directly, or 40 % with the Carnot Cycle in big assemblies of the Quarks.
    Think to the biggest whales: the eat only plancton.
    Warm Regards,

  686. Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You wrote:”Thank you for your insight. My answer is that there will not be juxtaposition, but integration.”

    Just to get that right; I am (was) worried about job losses in the global industry because of disruptive LENR technology, especially in the fossil fuel sector and dependent industries, but I found out that, to give one example, the cost of automobile production just to 3% depend on energy costs. Energy intensive is raw material production and if we have a look at Sweden, than the Swedish Government, Steel Industry and Vattenfall (Elforsk parent) plan to switch steel production from fossil fuel to electric energy, what makes no sense with today electricity cost.

    So, if you are talking about ‘integration’ do you mean, that the existing power supply systems will be necessary for a long term to support LENR technology, or is it somehow a short term issue to fulfill for example the safety requirements of the Ecat Quark X?

    All the best
    Uwe Doms

    That’s a very good point, I think it is ultimately a pure question of cost:

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

    Since you are planning to produce electricity with your ECAT Quark X, give my calculations, that at the given energy density of your ECAT fuel, combined with raw material costs, transportation costs, production costs for equipment and maintenance costs etc. your LENR Technology is far superior to all other today existing energy sources.

    For me the question arises, whether there can be a juxtaposition of LENR technology and existing forms of energy production?

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    It is now abundantly clear that your great invention works and it works with a very high COP which is above 100. This is a game changer. This is comparable to the transistor in the electronics technology. The transistor transformed electronics from a cumbersome and expensive method to make electrons do what you would want them to do by means of valves, to a one driven by microscopic devices that can process data in trillions of operations per second.

    Your Quark X is the transistor of all types of power generation.

    My question, based on the way that the transistor evolved during the years, is that the electronic manufacturers did not wait for the solid-state transistor invention to be developed into a unit comprising of million transistors residing in a microchip the size of my fingernail, but commenced building electronic circuits out of single transistors advancing the technology with each year that passed.

    I suppose that the Quark X will experience the same type of evolution and that you will not wait to design a 1000 MW power station as your first production output, but maybe a simple and humble modular unit of say 10kW for our delectation and use.

    Can you propose a year when we may see this happening?
    Is this far away?

  697. Andrea Rossi

    Albert Ellul:
    For now we are working on our 100 W module, when the verifications on it will have been made, we’ll see. But I propend for the maintainment of a 100 W module assembly concept.

  698. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Recalling the Lagunao testing, the eCat reactor was about 20cm in length and 2cm is diamters and the reactor output about 2400W of thermal power. The newest eCat (that we know about) is 1mm is diameter and 30mm in length and outputs 100W. So the power density has gone from 38W/cc to 4240W/cc.

    Likewise, the effective COP has moved from around 6 to about 200. Quite an improvement!

    Is there any reason to believe the newest eCat cannot be scaled up in size, say by a factor of three in all dimensions, and produce between 9 and 27 times the thermal output power?

  699. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The results with the QuarkX have to be verified and confirmed.

    Hi Andrea,
    You are making strong researches so late in life. It is hard to imagine what you would have done if you had started early in life. Both Newton and Einstein published four land mark papers in one year (Annus Mirabilis), when they were 26.

    When do you think your Annus Mirabilis will come. Remember that it should be much easier for you to make discoveries when you don’t need to apply for funds, go thru peer review, do indipendent tests. You have found a good model with secret customers, secret tests and secret theories. It sure speeds things up.

  701. Andrea Rossi

    Andy Kumar:
    Thank you!

    Dear Andrea. when you say that the sources must be integrated I think some sources should be eliminated. for example, all the waterfalls of the Alps are threatened by the construction of hydroelectric plants that drain the rivers for kilometers because of underground pipelines. I hope the turbines will be replaced with your cats very quickly!

  703. Andrea Rossi

    Carloluna:
    I confirm my opinion about integration.

    Otherwise explained:

    SSM is one QuarkX that drives 10 other QuarkX’s and, from time to time, you change the driver and the drivens.

    Before, it was all in one, but now it is in separate cells. Andrea explained that QuarkX is a minimalistic “cell” for the Rossi Effect.

    Best Regards,
    Koen

  707. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Frank Acland,

    For the difference in the SSM, you can compare the E-Cat with a mammal with lungs that breathe in and out, and QuarkX with fish with gills which have a flow-through system to breathe. One is not better than the other. Maybe QuarkX can be called E-Fisch.

    Just for a joke. QuarkX is the better name for now.

  711. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You have stated that during the recent QuarkX testing that the reactors did not run in self-sustain mode. Is it possible for them to run in SSM like the e-cats used in the 1MW plant?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  712. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    When you consume half Wh/h making 100 Wh/h you are basically in permanent SSM. Better than this is impossible.
    You need anyway a drive.
    Disclaimer: the results need to be verified.

  713. Dear Rossi,

    How long do you think the fuel mix would last if the Quark X is allowed to run indefinitely?

    Hi Andrea,

    Here are some interesting data on worldwide installed electrical generation capacity.
    https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2236rank.html

    Installed worldwide capacity, in 2012, of approx 6,800,000 MWe which would need say 20,400,000 MWt of 600C steam and at say $1m / MWt that equals approx $20 trillion in sales. Imagine the recharge business from 20,400,000 1MW Quark reactors! Nice business if you can get it!

    Hi Dr Rossi,

    Seen on ECW – simple Logic:

    It is a very difficult position to say you did not pay the man the tens of millions you owe him because the product does not work, and at the same time sue the man for control of the territory where he is manufacturing working product. IH has made it’s decision.

    They bought rights to a different product which they say does not work, even if they maintained the rights from the initial payment, Rossi will be manufacturing a different product.

    I expect that any rational judge would club IH like a baby seal if they contest the territory after having abandon the payment obligation on a technicality. It really looks like IH was only trying to kill off Rossi as potential competition for some other client.

    I sincerely doubt there will be any lingering legalities. You are either on the bus or off the bus.

    IH is officially off the bus.

  728. Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations for the positive preliminary test results of “X”.

    I read comments here carefully and when there is reason to write, I write. If I’m silent, like now I have been for some months, it means that during this time I have not disagreed with anything major written here about the E-cat or its development strategy.

    best regards, /pekka

    PS. There is a cluster of 400 greenhouse farmers in Närpiö municipality, Finland, which is located in the Swedish-speaking part of Finland on the western coast. The small community has 0.77 square kilometres of greenhouse area where they produce 60% of all tomatoes and 35% of all cucumbers consumed in Finland, among other things. Being Swedish-speaking, they are well connected with Sweden. Almost your countrymen, that is. Also entrepreneurially minded. Compared to normal farming, greenhouse farming saves a lot of land area for other use: for free nature, in particular. This will be one of the largest positive ecological impacts of the E-cat, I’m sure.

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations to your latest QuarkX tests. As an enginner I understand the tremendous work that lies ahead from doing a sucessful test to have a running production line.
    Improve the properties of the QuarkX (higher electrical output, better safety), improve the control loop (software), adapt the contol hardware to multiple quarks, build electronics to transform the electrical output to standard voltage (AC/DC), build prototypes with different numbers of multiple quarks, design suitable heat exchangers, deside what parts should be produced in the factory from scratch, what parts that can be bought as standard off the shelf, and what parts that are specially ordered from subcontractors, how to design the assembly line, how to hire skilled workers/engineers/consultants, how to program the robots, how to make a test station in the production line to test the complete product, how to document all processes, how to make a CE-certification (EU self certification ) of the product.
    When starting to make a new product one must first do smaller series to trim the production line before making big numbers. Most companies that invent a new product usually have years of experience of manufacturing simular older products.
    I know that you have a great team but it is easy to forget some details in the process to manufacture a new successful product.
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik

  733. Msprize

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Is it possible to use hydrogen QuarkX heat in a nuclear rocket engine? In these engines, working on uranium NERVA thrust to weight ratio was 3.4: 1 and a specific impulse of 850 seconds (at a temperature of 2000 K). Hopefully QuarkX instead of uranium will be at least as effective, but without the risk of contamination inherent NERVA (sorry for my English).

  734. Andrea Rossi

    Msprize:
    I am not able to answer.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  735. Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    If you will add a physicist specialized in optics and photonics to your Team,
    you may want to add a requirement, “good knowledge of thermophotovoltaics”.
    There have been some theoretical advances in this area during the last couple of years,
    they were meant for the solar industry, but you may be able to benefit from them.

    Some of the most interesting papers I found are:
    “Thin-film ‘Thermal Well’ Emitters and Absorbers for High-Efficiency Thermophotovoltaics” and
    “Ultra High Efficiency Thermo-Photovoltaic Solar Cells Using Metallic Photonic Crystals As Intermediate Absorber and Emitter”

    The QuarkX seems for now to be developed into just one product line, but to get most light you need to convert heat
    into broadband light, while for TPV electricity generation a narrowband conversion is much better, because of PV efficiency.
    So having two product lines based on QuarkX, one optimised for light, the other for electricity, may be a business option to consider.

    Best Regards,
    Ovidiu Herlea

  740. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I hope you will be able to answer the following questions for us:
    1. At the E-cat.com site I read that the commercial phase of the 1MW units would start in the first quarters of 2016. Is that still the case?
    2. Will the technical specifications of the 1 MW unit be adapted in the light of the one year test results (like COP (>6) and recharging frequency (2/y)).
    3. You said the first hot-cat based unit will be delivered in England probably this year. Is that still the case? (I assume it is related to 4.)
    4. You said the QuarkX still needs some improvement. I would assume that would delay the commercialization of it. Is that true?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  741. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- Yes
    2- yes for the COP, but I never said the recharge is in 2 years: it still is 1 year ( respect the original 6 mo)
    3- I am not able to give a calendar for the QuarkX. I never gave for certain that it would be ready within the 2016. I said I hoped it. Such hope has not been lost. Not yet, at least.
    4- yes
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  742. Gunnar Lindberg

    Dear Andrea,
    Thousands of E-Cat customers, myself included, are waiting for the delivery of a domestic reactor to warm our homes. What is the problem, why is the reactor not certified?
    Warm Regards,
    Gunnar Lindberg

  743. Andrea Rossi

    Gunnar Lindberg:
    So far we cann accept orders only for industrial plants of the kind tested for one year. The domestic line of the classic E-Cat has not yet obtained the necessary safety certifications. About the QuarkX, the preliminar R&D phase has been completed, but now comes a hard work to bring it to be a product.
    I am optimist, though.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  744. Errol

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About the test with the Quarkx, there are in the blogs complaints that the test has been made only by you, without independent verification.

  745. Andrea Rossi

    Errol:
    I published these preliminar results, after the preliminar R&D made internally by us, not to proclaim a validation, but to give information, saying adamantly that the results are preliminar and need confirmation. The information is important, the photo I published is a mine of information extremely important ( for persons able to read it) and I published all this for enthusiasm to be shared with our Readers, but with a clear disclaimer that I am continuing to repeat.
    Obviously the validation of a product will have, in due time, a different kind of base.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  746. Dear Rossi,

    Did I read correctly that the Quark X produced 0.1 KWh/h vs 0.0005 KWh/h electrical energy consumed?

    Amos.

  747. Andrea Rossi

    Amos:
    Before I answer a disclaimer must be repeated: the tests on the QuarkX E-Cat are still on course and all the results need repetitions and confirmations. The results obtained so far are very promising, but safety problems must be resolved and such safety problems will reduce the COP, independently from other factors. Nevertheless, I am very glad of the work done so far and the numbers you cited are the number we got, but, again, these numbers cannot be considered ¨five sigma¨.
    It is also important the strong development we got for what concerns the theoretical bases of the effect, in full rtespect of the Standard Model. I strongly believe I have understood it. Soon will work on it with Prof. Norman Cook.
    Nevertheless, again, much work has to be done before getting the five sigma and a solid theoretical interpretation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  748. Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: Can you bring us up to date on the number of 50 COP E-Cats from the year long test you have sold. Thanks.

  758. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For years (I think) you have been saying that the output of an eCat cannot (ever) be used as the input to the same eCat reactor, citing safety concerns.

    Yet you do run an eCat off the local electricity grid, which at least theoretically, the eCat reactor could provide power to that grid. The saving grace is the immense capacity of that electgricity grid, so it can absorb any short term power fluctuations generated by the eCat.

    This could be modeled as an RC network performing as a low-pass filter. The resistance is the related to the amount of power being generated. C is the capacitance of the energy storage device. Batteries have been used for years as both energy storage devices and as transient suppressors. So given a large enough battery, it should be possible to power an eCat from a battery and use the eCat to power the battery with sufficient protective circuitry between the eCat output and the eCat input. OR AM I MISSING SOMETHING MORE FUNDAMENTAL TO THE ECAT THEORY OF OPERATION?

  759. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your suggestion.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  760. Chris Johnson

    For agricultural uses, many companies make quantum dots that convert blue light into the red spectrum required for plants. Most companies use toxic cadmium for this purpose. This company has a cadmium free plastic film with quantum dots specifically tailored for agriculture: http://www.nanocotechnologies.com/what-we-do/products/cfqd-quantum-dot-films . Combining this film with the QuarkX light could create a single light/heat source for indoor agriculture.

    A.R.

  762. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I think John Atkinson had an interesting question. Where I live, power goes down very frequently, sometimes for days.

    1) If you’re running a quark, and the power goes down, will it just turn off safely?

    2) If power is out for a few days, can you run a quark on back up generator?

    3) can you run it on a backup battery system safely?

    4) If yes to 3, can you use the same Quark to charge the battery it is running on?

    5) If no to 4, can you run a quark on battery, use it to charge a second battery, and switch batteries when needed?

    Thanks!

  763. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    Obviously with John Atkinson I was joking.
    Surely a back up generator resolves the problem.
    The answer is yes to the questions 1 2 3 4.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  764. John Atkinson

    What would happen if the QuartX lost its power source, grid was down, snow storm, lightning, tree limbs during operation? Would a back up generator suffice. Thank you and your team for all your work and perseverance. God bless you all and keep you safe.

  765. Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    If the E-Cat doesn’w work, the grid is down, snow storm, lightning, tree limbs, Noah’s Ark sinking, generator without fuel…that’s not your lucky day.

  769. Sebastian

    Andrea,

    According to the examples in this link:

    http://www.cps.gov.on.ca/english/plans/E6000/6701/M-6701L.pdf

    Heating needs for a 360 m2 greenhouse are 10 to 15W per (m2 * deltaT)

    So assuming a max deltaT of 50 degrees, you would go with a 200 or 300kW unit for a 360m2 greenhouse.

    That’s if you want to grow tomatoes/cucumbers most of the year at 15 degrees C + and temperatures drop to -35. So it’s more of an upper bound, as deltaT will typically be smaller.

    Canada has 14 million m2 of commercial vegetable greenhouses. They mostly use natural gas. I’d bet that surface would grow if heating was cheaper.

    In a small greenhouse, I could do a lot more if I had 5 kW of cheap heat. Right now it seems wasteful to use fossil fuels to do so.

  770. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    Interesting,
    Thank you.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  777. Koen Vandewalle

    @Sebastian,

    imagine that the spectrum of the blue light is appropriate for plants. Then life, as we know it, does not depend on sunlight in the universe.

    Andrea, you can do a preliminary test in a few days to weeks. Do you want to do that ? Or did you test it already ? (Few months ago you wrote that you watched the movie “the martian”. QuarkX, could have a role in the remake 😉

    This is far more important than electric cars, house heating etc… Even in the desert, plants could be grown underground or indoors, when outdoors conditions are not fit to grow plants.

    Living Regards,
    Koen

    Caro Andrea ho cercato di immaginare del perché Tu abbia scelto di modificare il più che collaudato E-CAT con uno ( E-CAT – QUARK _ X ) di così modeste dimensioni ma non mi so dare una risposta . Ora Ti pregherei , se è possibile , di dirmi pure di che spessore è il contenitore ( “ DI UN MATERIALE ADEGUATO ? “ ) “ QUARK_X “ dato che fuori tutto la grossezza è di un millimetro ! Il tubicino avrà pure uno spessore per poter contenere H2 + Nichel + qualcosa altro !
    Ringrazio infinitamente per una qualche risposta !!! Giannino da Udin ;-))

  783. Andrea Rossi

    Giannino Lodovico Ferro Casagrande:
    The QuarkX is not a substitute of the former E-Cat: it is another product. I can’t abswer to technical related details, so far. Verification activity is on course.
    Still many problems have to be resolved.

    Dear Andrea,

    I believe light and heat will be useful to grow food in heated greenhouses in northern regions.

    I hope to be the first customer to install a Quark in a small hoophouse. My community imports more than 80% of its produce from far away; hopefully with your help we will be able to change that.

    Now get back to work! :)

  785. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    Now, this is a very interesting application.
    Can you give me numbers ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  786. Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I am not specialized in optics, but a programmer, specialized in security printing, and I have been keeping
    an eye on interesting discoveries, that’s how I found about your work (BTW, congratulations for the last test) in 2011.
    About the “lighting device”, I believe that a torchlight that would last “forever” could be an interesting product
    using a QuarkX inside, and would sell like hot cakes to certain professionals.
    Such a torchlight would need to get rid of the extra heat, that can’t be converted to visible light,
    and the electricity generated should probably be enough to drive a small fan.

    Best Regards,
    Ovidiu Herlea

  787. Andrea Rossi

    Ovidiu Herlea:
    Thank you for the suggestion: I need to add a Physicist specialized in optics and photonics to the Team.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  788. Don

    Dear Andrea:
    In your answer to LookMoo you put twice the point # 3: why ? Is it a typo?
    Cheers,
    Don

  789. Andrea Rossi

    Don:
    It’s not a typo, it’s because I can count only up to three: as a consequence of this fact, I count as follows: ” one, two, three, three, three, …etc to the infinite. By the way: maybe it’s sustainable philosophically on the base that 3 is the perfect number, therefore it contains the Infinite.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  790. Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    congratulations for the huge results with the QuarkX, the incredibile small dimension, the extremely high temperature of the surface, and the large amount of light produced, make me even more convinced that the site of the “miracle” of the reaction be the external, like if something from the environment reacts with it, I do not believe that this “something” be necessarily present in the environment, but it could resonate from somewhere, for instance another dimension.
    Let me do some dreams, after so long time on this blog without lose never a post.
    Crazy? The starship Enterprise generator works in the same manner from decades eh eh.

    Best regards
    Alessandro Coppi

  791. Andrea Rossi

    Alessandro Coppi:
    You know, in Physics nothing is impossible, everything is associated to a percentage of probability. So you can unleash your imagination and associate it to a percentage of hope.

  792. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    when can we expect more information about your future plans for the devices under development? Can you give us a possible approximate date for production? Where will they be produced? How much time will be necessary for the devices to be received after ordering? And most important, when can we expect more information about the science and technology of the devices?
    Inquisitive regards.

  793. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    I will answer precisely to your questions as soon as we will be ready: we are working at the maximum of our capabilities.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  794. James Rovnak

    Andrea have you given any thought to using neural networks to correlate learning process into control system design? For one you could use acoustic probes like in Tesla self driving cars Now? They learn as one drives more & get better with time. I like your use of the stethoscope to tell how your E- Cats are progressing or staying away from thermal failure I presume?

    Just a few thoughts to see what your ideas in this area have been !

    Shortly before I retired many moons ago I was impressed with the neural networks ability to learn & mimic nonlinear systems & tried to use them in control & protection systems but that was long ago!

    Elon Musk uses them now I presume in his self driving vehicles which I have looked at in his local sales shops now where I live!

    Just curious! Your friend & long ally Jim

    PS Congradulation to you & team on the newest E Cat Quark X! I like specs you were able to share!

  795. Andrea Rossi

    James Rovnak:
    Thank you for the suggestion, interesting.
    Warm Regards,

  796. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Please pass my congratulations and praise on to your team for me, would you?
    Does the 0.5 Wh/h drive power still need 240v three phase power to run the QuarkX?

    Thank you,

    Tom

  797. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I will pass you congrats to my team right now!
    Answer: yes.

  798. LookMoo

    Normally, Its not possible for a small company like Leonardo Corp. to alone develope this kind of advanced products at this speed (and several version of them) as it requires thousands of engineering hours. Besides accessories like rubber-hammers (my remark :-) you have said that the control system is imperative for success).

    During the last 6 months you have moved faster than you did the previous 5 year period. Your English have gone through a similar development.

    So, Rossi.. what is the secret??? hidden partners?? new secretary??

  799. Andrea Rossi

    LookMoo:
    New secretary.
    (he,he,he)
    To be serious now and again:
    1- it is true, the little Leonardo has made an enormous mole of work in a relatively short time and with a very limited budget: we got COPs in 5 years that in classic hot fusion have not been achieved in 50 years and spending fifty billions or more. The secret? Work like beasts, without limitations, with high risks, never giving up and, if you allow me, also a particular skill.
    2- about my English: I love English and do my best to improve it, even if for me it is very frustrating when most taxists, after I explain them where I have to go in the particulars, most times answer “you are Italian, aren’t you?” So long for my correct pronunciation endeavours.
    3- In Leonardo we are not many persons, but I choose very top level guys: one Messi is better that 100 normal players.
    3- for the massive production we will have all the necessary personnel and our business plan has been studied in the particulars. An enormous work is waiting for us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  801. Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    In order to increase the amount of light output of a lighting device that uses the QuarkX, it may be possible to use
    a material that emits broadband visible light when exposed to infrared radiation. Such a material has recently been found,
    and it may be worth for you to contact those who developed it (it still needs work, but seems promising). Link to article:

    Best Regards,
    Ovidiu Herlea

  802. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Thanks for providing some information on the newest eCat. A few questions/observations:

    a. The natural convective and radiative losses for a 1mm diameter by 30mm horizontal tube at 1500C in a surrounding of 20C is about 50 Watts. Yet you device apparently outputs 100W. Do you have additional heat transfer through conduction? Please clarify
    b. The blue light reported cannot come from Blackbody radiation with a surface temperature of 1500C. Do you have some type of electrical to photon emission occurring?
    c. May I assume the blue light is not Cerinkov radiation (rapid deceleration of fast moving beta particles temporarily exceeding the speed of light in a specific media)?

  803. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a. obviously yes
    b. and c.: what is the blue light from will be explained together with the theory connected with the so called Rossi Effect after we will have made all the becessary verifications. As I said, this short report is just the beginning of a hard work of verification.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  804. Gunnar Lindberg

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Torkel ”Sifferkoll” Nyberg is a great contributor on ecatnews.com. Below are some of his eminent posts. Enjoy!

    Then why all these foul words and anger Freddie? Have a look in the mirror maybe? If there is any laughter it has a distinct smell of panic to it

    You’re completely lost in emotions and hatred and lack any sign of objectivity in your analysis. You should do some anger management … I know … Bring the Zeopfl along and do som group therapy.

    BTW! I dont care about the outdated education of yours. Only thing certain is that you are not qualified to comment on the nuclear physics as you did above.

    You really need to be more creative with your wording Freddie!!! Your supposed to to be the native english speaker, or? You sound like a retard

    If it makes you so depressed little Frankie, why don’t you dispose of you pathetic handle to the /dev/null gods and go play somewhere else.

    I can feel the angst and shortage of lithium here girls and boys. Stop panicing! ECN is closing down; you can safely dissapear into the binary space where you came from and no one will ever know you existed. Especially you Frankie …

    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  808. Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    I’d like to congratulate with you for this extraordinary achievement. The few data in your (toooo) short report means we are really at the beginnning of a new era. And that you are entered in the history. Thank you from the whole world for devoting your entire life to this enterprise.
    I’d have a lot of questions as usual but I’ll force myself to be short:
    1 – You always say you will sell QuarkX but some months ago, in a short phrase, you also said that you was planning to produce and sell energy. Which one is the case now ?
    2 – Is the produced electicity AC or DC ?
    3 – At the end, I think that all that heat produced in the reaction will be an obstacle that will prevent some kind of usage of the QuarkX (in altre parole: Troppa grazia Sant’Antonio). I’m thinking at small portable battery and other applications. Is there place for improvements in this, I mean, will you be able to “cool” the reaction ? (No need for crystall ball here, I’m only asking if there is some place for improvements)
    4 – Since I follow you it always happens at the end that your estimates was very prudent and conservative. Is it the case also this time ?

    Thank you again.

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

  809. Andrea Rossi

    Marco Serra:
    Thank you.
    1- The two are both possible
    2- We can have either AC or DC
    3- there is room for improvements
    4- no
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  810. DrD

    Dear Andrea,
    Lumens as you say are not a constant but more importantly they depend upon the frequency content (colour) and it’s match to the human eyes response curve which means that 100W might be only 100 Lumens or it might be much greater than the 1600. Because it is Lumens that matter for lighting, not watts, I wondered if you had actually measured the Lumens.
    It’s a minor issue of curiosity given the great strides you have made, amazing.
    Kind Regards and Best wishes
    David

  811. Andrea Rossi

    DrD:
    You are right.
    We did not yet measure the Lumens, but it must be done.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  812. Astonishing !, last year we were excited for a COP 6, in April this year, after the 1MW test there was talk of COP 50, and COP 200 now, it looks like an exponential trend, the more (if not I’m wrong) if the 10% of the QUARK X electric energy output is stored in super capacitors or batteries, and a small part of this is used to control the system, the COP becomes … infinite (at least as long as the “charge” of components vanishes). Now anxiety is divided between two issues: the explanation of ” Rossi effect ” and the expectation of mass production. About the first, may I ask if the blue light can be considered Cerenkov light?
    Congratulations !!
    Neri Accornero

  813. Andrea Rossi

    Neri Accornero:
    Thank you for your attention.
    I prefer to hold on this: it is leading to the solution of the theoretical dilemma.
    I hope.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  814. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    How do you collect the electricity from the reactor?

    Is it as simple as X amount of power flowing through the wire leading up to the reactor and a greater amount of power flowing through the wire leading out of the reactor?

    Sincerely,
    Hank Mills

  815. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    The electricity is collected with any classic and well known technology,not necessarily one in particular.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  816. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea.
    The new Quark looks to me like a wire string. I have the following questions:
    1. May it be produced in longer lengths? If so:
    2. May 60cm length provide 2kW heat with 10W electricity consumption?
    3. May it be spun in a open spiral?
    4. May a 2kW spiral with on-off regulation be suitable for water heating purposes?
    5. Do such a insolated water heater represent a risk for radiation?
    6. May the shift of a complete heating element represent a such risk?
    Best regards: Svein Henrik

  817. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    Any product we will make will not generate radiations outside.
    Too soon to answer to the other questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  818. Andrea Rossi

    Malcom Lear:
    No, Quark comes from the fact that the dimension is foundamental, X comes from the fact that a name has not been decided yet.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  819. DrD

    Dear Andrea,
    Do you know what the light output was in Lumens?
    Best wishes
    David

  820. Andrea Rossi

    DrD:
    The ratio between Lumens and Watts is not a constant, it is an integral and the value of the derivatives depend not linearly on the amount of Watts. For example: 40 W correspond to about 450 L, 100 W correspond to 1600 L.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  821. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard MkEk:

    7- the work on patents is dynamic, not static
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  822. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    Brilliant work on the part of you and your team. The QuarkX looks to be a real game changer – a COP of 200 at 1500 deg C means that nearly every application requiring heat can now be satisfied by your invention.

    I share your caution over the idea of electric cars powered by the Quark. Current IC engines might run at 40% efficiency, which means the waste heat at 60% is 1.5 times the useful power. QuarkX electricity at 10% would mean dealing with 9 times the waste heat. Even if you manage to get the electric output up to 20%, it would still require dealing with 4 times the waste heat.
    Newer batteries coupled with recharging via Rossi powered power stations, as part of an integrated system …

  823. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    Thank you for your insight. I can only repeat that I am not expert of electric cars.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  824. MISTERO

    Hi Andrea, the blu light from E-CatQX is Čerenkov effect?

  825. Andrea Rossi

    MISTERO:
    We have understood what the blue halo is and I think we have resolved the theoretical issue. To be checked, obviously, with further study, probably in collaboration with Norman Cook.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  826. Jimmy

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations for your tremendous achievement with the QuarkX. Intelligent persons have understood that you also put a disclaimer, saying that, obviously, the results must be confirmed by further R&D.
    Cheers,
    Jimmy

  827. Andrea Rossi

    Jimmy:
    Thank you for reminding the disclaimer.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Rossi –

    New Information and any attempted theft of Andrea Rossi’s ECAT IP could be costly .. “egregious cases of misconduct.”

  829. Andrea Rossi

    Steve Breyer:
    Yes, we know.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  830. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Your revelation of the QuarkX details has obviously lead to a lot of speculation as of how it might work and also to many wrong assumptions, because nobody knows exactly how it works, except you. I hope you will forgive for us asking you ‘stupid’ questions, based on wrong assumptions. Just to check some assumptions, I hope you can confirm these for us:
    1. Yes, I have a new Partner in Europe with whom I am going to produce QuarkX in the future.
    2. QuarkX’s can be switched on and off in seconds.
    3. QuarkX’s are very suitable for jets.
    4. The tested 1x30mm Quarks will work for months on one charge.
    5. QuarkX’s cannot be recharged.
    6. QuarkX’s outperform E-cats in many aspects
    7. QuarkX’s differ so much from E-cats that they can hardly be compared and require new patents.
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  831. Malcolm Lear

    Hi Andrea,
    I guess its a play on words and has little to do with Quark’s and more to do with Quantum arc :-)

  832. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Yes, 1 cubic meter can be correct. Maybe less.
    I love the million quarks vs the thousands bigger: the Nature is based on quarks, I love this model.
    I will not miniaturize further, I promise.
    Thank you also from our Team: they worked hard and now the tension is increasing.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  833. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    The thing that has surprised me the most about the E-Cat QuarkX reactors you tested is the size. What you describe is smaller than a toothpick! Is the tiny reactor all that is required to produce the 10 W of electricity you report, or are there additional components needed for electricity generation?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  834. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Thank you for your intelligent approach. Again, let me repeat that we published this brief report because wanted to share our enthusiasm for what we saw, but these results must be confirmed by a long and meticulous work that is waiting for us. I personally am extremely glad for what I saw in the blue cloud: I saw the very possible theoretical solution. I am working on the mathematics of this event.
    Yes, apart the reactors there is the control system.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  835. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I’m not sure (my own uncertainty principle) of the approx. volume of a 1 MW reactor based on the recently described QuarkX modules.

    Considering the QuarkX size/shape, with about 10,000+ cores, what is the best way to organize these multiple elements into a larger system? No need to tell me now, just curious.

    I think you said a 1 MW system would occupy about 1+ cubic meter. Is this correct?

    Would a 1000 MW (1 GW) system therefore occupy 1000+ cubic meters, or a cube of about 10 meters on a side? Would you ever consider building a 1 GW systems with 10 million+ cores?

    Does it make more sense to build millions of smaller systems (e.g. 100+ kW), or thousands of larger systems (e.g. 100 MW and above)? The answer would seem to be yes if you were trying to build a more robust and distributed system.

    But the market will decide. :)

    Congratulations on the dedication and determination of you and your team to bring forward these amazing advances. (In multiple technologies.)

    Please don’t make the QuarkX cores any smaller! I wouldn’t want to be the person carrying a box of 500-1000 QuarkXes who accidentally spilled them out on the factory floor. Of course, robotic assembly lines would help to avoid that problem. (Assuming zero software errors.)

    Thermal regards,

    Joseph Fine

  836. Oystein Lande

    Dear mr Rossi,

    You mentioned the use of spectrometer to calculate energy emitted from the device.

    1. Can you say How many detectors where used?
    2. If more than one: where they of the same type?
    3. Can you say something of what frequency range your instrument(s) was designed to detect?

  837. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    Three different types, for different specter ranges.
    The three combined had a complete specter starting from IR.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  838. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for the answers you could provide. I understand the irony – our questions often must seem silly and far off base. I’m simply trying to wrap my brain around this reactor based on relatively little information. Without being able to study a formal report with much more detail, I can still summize that, if verified by the further rigorous testing, the Quark is another giant leap forward in the evolution of the E-Cat.
    Hank Mills

  839. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Thank you: this is a preliminar short report, now there will be a huge follow up made by work, work, work.
    You are intelligent and you understand that I cannot answer, now, to all the questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  840. Toulmin

    Dear Andrea,

    As a long time follower I am curious about if your partners from Hydrofusion participated in the test? Did anybody of the team that made the 1 year test on the 1MW E-Cat participate?

    Best regards

    Toulmin

  841. Andrea Rossi

    Toulmin:
    Hydrofusion always works in parallel with us.
    Nobody of the great Team that made the 1 year long test to the 1 MW E-Cat is working with me anymore. They were men of IH and, for obvious reasons, cannot work with us.
    But all of them are professionally very good.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  843. msprize

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    I would like to ask an important question about QuarkX. I want to learn the power to weight ratio, which is very important for possible future applications. Thank you in advance!

  844. Andrea Rossi

    Msprize:
    When you talk of power to weight ratio you must consider the system, not just the mere reactor. I am not able to answer now.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  845. Engineer48

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on your stunning achievement. Truly Star Trek like technology.

    I calculated the QuarkX 1x30mm rod
    .
    electrical power density at 424kWe/ltr and the electrical energy density at 3.71GWhe/ltr/year
    .
    assuming the QuarkX rod’s fuel life is 12 months.

    Do you agree?

  846. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    No, is less. Still enough, though!
    Thank you for your kind words,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  847. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say that the performance of the E-Cat QuarkX must be independently verified, do you mean that a third party must verify? If so, are you working towards this?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  848. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, I mean we have to deepen our tests in a new phase, this time finalized to make a product: obviously all the results must be put in discussion.Customers wouldn’t forgive a failure.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  849. Hurley

    Mr. Rossi,

    You and your team have accomplished an incredible feat of discovery and engineering. Congratulations!

    Have you designed heat exchanger(s) for use in an industrial setting. I am thinking of feedwater heaters set up in a duplex design where one can be taken out of service. I am not sure what to do with the light, maybe solar collector. So many possibilities.

    God Speed
    Hurley

  850. Andrea Rossi

    Hurley:
    1- yes
    2- light can be used to illuminate a path ( but I am not sure it is still useful).

  854. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Your report is very interesting.

    1) How was input power applied to the device: electrodes on each end of the 1mm diameter reactor, a resistor coil around the reactor, natural gas, etc?

    2) How was output in the form of heat, light, and electricity measured?

    3) What was the longest period of self sustain in which the output remained steady or increased with zero input power?

    4) During this period of self sustain, what forms of output were being produced?

    5) The numbers you provide for COP and percentages for different forms of energy are vague and non-specific — for reasons you have indicated. In a situation where you are attempting to produce the maximum 10% of electrical power (in continual operation and not self sustain mode) how many watts of power are going into the reactor and how many watts are being produced in the form of electricity?

    6) According to question 5, what is the COP when only accounting for the input power and the 10% electricity being produced?

    7) How is the output electricity being collected?

    8) If the reactor itself is serving as a resistive element and electricity is being passed through it via electrodes, is the excess electricity being manifest as a reduction in the voltage drop over the resistor or a voltage increase?

    9) Is the reactor truly a “reactor” in that it is a tube of another material (perhaps a Tungsten alloy) that contains the various powders that compose the charge?

    10) Is the reactor simply a compressed cylinder of the components that make up the charge?

    11) Does the Quark X tested utilize lithium in the charge?

    12) Does the Quark X tested utilize nickel in the charge?

    13) You have mentioned that the Quark X uses titanium: is this a component in the charge?

    14) Did you measure any alpha particles being emitted from the reactor? If so, were their energies consistent with what would result from the proton + lithium reaction?

    15) If the reactor reached 1500C, that would represent a temperature beyond the melting point of nickel.

    a) Is this possible because the surface of the 1mm diameter reactor is hotter than the inner surface due to eddy currents, as you previously assert?

    b) Is this possible because nickel is no longer being utilized and perhaps has been substituted with another suitable metal such as titanium with a higher melting point?

    c) Is this possible because the reactions can continue taking place while the nickel is in liquid phase?

    Thank you for any answers you can provide.

    Dear Andrea.
    Congratulations for your result. This may be good news for electric cars. A Tesla provided with a “45m long Quark X” will constantly be supplied with 15 kW. Along with a battery of 1/10 of today it will have a infinity mileage. Its total weight will probably be reduced by 40%. The same may also the production costs.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Thank you for the interesting information about your E-Cat QuarkX. Can you tell us if the COP is more or less than same regardless of the mix of output energy (electric, light, or heat) or does it depend in a significant way depending on the output mix selected. From your short report it seems the COP is the same but I just want to confirm.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on your preliminary test results. It sounds like you have a rough cut of a production model, that needs to be refined for the manufacturing process. Regarding your current mission:

    Now we must operate along two directions:
    1- consolidate the reliability of the results and the product
    2- organize a massive production

    I have three questions to request:

    a) Can your team consolidate the reliability of the results with you as a mentor?
    b) Can your team organize the massive production of the product with you as a mentor?

    It would be great if you could start to focus on the next product release, and let your team run with this type of production plan!

    Warm regards,

    Tom

  871. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding the interest in the identity of the partner, I think I understand from the perspective of an outsider. Many on the outside are intensely interested in your work, and find your results remarkable.

    Now there is a saying that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. From what you say about the E-Cat QuarkX, there is no technology that has ever done what you report, and for some observers, it is hard to accept that it could be real. More witnesses (e.g. your partner) who would step forward and say “yes, we saw this too” would make it easier to accept your report.

    You are correct though. If a product works and is available to use, then the partner behind it does not matter very much. I think it’s just that people are impatient at this point.

    One more question: Are the reactors used in this test the ones you have been using in your early testing? If so, how long in total have they been operating?

    Best wishes,

    Frank

  872. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I perfectly understand and I myself repeat that the results of this preliminar gest have to be verified.
    Independently from who the Partner is.
    The QuarkX used in this final stage of the preliminar test is different.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  873. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    this is disappointing to hear (to use the produced energy to let it run in continuous self sustain mode).
    Can you explain why?

    Do you just don’t have the necessary equipment/control system, or is the produced energy different in any way from the current you get out of a wall socket?

    Thank you and keep up the good work!

    Dr. Rossi: Thank you for the recent test results. I would like to go back and ask about the successful year long test and the 50 COP reactor from that test. Is this E-Cat being manufactured? How many have been sold? Do you have an automated manufacturing line established for this product? I can understand you are totally absorbed by your new research, are you turning over the manufacturing and sale of the 50 COP E-Cat to someone else in your organization?

    The manufacturing of the 1 MW plants proceeds independently from the R&D on the QuarkX.

  879. Ecco Yumi

    Mr Andrea Rossi:
    Thanks for answering my previous question. I noticed from the Report that the QuarkX measurements are 30mm length, 1mm diameter, which is unusually small and would make it similar in size to broken spaghetti.
    Can the QuarkX be produced into an arbitrary length and then broken up in smaller pieces without substantially affecting its functionality, just like spaghetti? If yes, I would humbly suggest that perhaps a more fitting name could be SpaghettiX. Hopefully we will someday get to know the “recipe” you’re using.
    Cheers,

    Hello, Dr.R, don’t know if you seen this,poem, hope you like it, and congrats on your latest, accomplishments.

    How the cat got out of the bag

    at a time on mother earth,
    On oil we depended,
    It supplied our need for power,
    It took our money by the hour.
    For when at last the oil ran out.
    We thought we were doomed
    without a doubt
    When from Italy came,
    The news to set us all aflame.
    Dr. Rossi came forth and said for true.
    We have, he said the solution too.
    The energy we all need now.
    Just climb on board,we’ll tell you how.
    So a few believed and some did not
    That Rossi claims were ought but rot.
    As time went by and slowly we formed the e-cat world forum
    We tested, and learned and debated it true.
    Till Leonardo corp.and Rossi at last came through,
    With subtle hints flung far and Wide,
    We raised our examples with fierce pride.
    The test proved out to be ‘ right on ‘,
    The final Proof—The lights came on.
    Now in 2016 it is a simple tone.
    E-CATnow is set in stone.

    A final note i leave with thee,
    my grandkids are at my knee.
    I tell them stories of the the E-cat you see.
    And with wonderful eyes they look at me
    for this old man has played a part,
    That set the world on a new start,
    Now, the future is coming so fast.
    The E-CAT is now world class.

    This was composed by a late great friend of mine, who was a great inventor in his own time.— Blake walston, i am sure he would be pleased.

    Clovis Ray:
    Thank you, very nice.

  883. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    are you able to feed the produced electric energy back to the heating and control system of the reactor?
    If yes, are you doing it at your current test?

    This would show that the reactor is 100% able to run long time completely standalone without external power and would convince the hardest skeptic, or at least your potential customers/partners.

    Andrea,

    Thank you very much for the information and photo. I was wondering if negotiations were still in progress on the factory site that you found in Sweden? Also just to make sure there wasn’t any errors in your initial report, is the size of the Quark X you tested, 1mm X 30mm? I think that is a bit thinner than we were expecting. It is wonderful to see you great work developing into such a groundbreaking device. Truly wonderful.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

  888. Andrea Rossi

    I have known Professor Focardi since childhood; my family used to take a vacation in the same place where his family would take one and I preferred to stay with them rather than with my parents.
    At age six he taught me to play chess, a marvelous teacher.
    Over the years this tradition of ours came to an end although I would occasionally encounter him as he commuted back and forth from the physics department of the University of Bologna, his second home.
    His characteristic figure, always dressed in gray suits, was a familiar image, loved and respected.
    Fate made us meet in Fall 2011. Focardi was sitting alone at a table corner in a large warehouse full of people.
    Everyone was there to attend Ing. Rossi’s demonstration of his invention, the E-Cat.
    A strange box full of wires and tubes that rumbled while emitting vapor.
    He told me: “Hi Gianvico, I am happy you are here, this invention by Ing. Rossi will change the world.
    He encouraged me to marry this adventure and I am infinitely grateful to him.
    I am sure he is in a wonderful place now, but if he had waited a few months before departing I would not have been displeased…
    For months I have been working on the idea of a museum, a show, a dynamic exhibit that explains the magic of the E-Cat and the revolution it brings.
    I think it would be proper to name the exhibit after Focardi.
    What do you think Andrea?
    Good-bye Professor and bon voyage.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for sharing your internal test results — very interesting.

    Some questions if you don’t mind:

    1. Are the energy input/output numbers exact, or rounded? It would seem unusual to me for it to be a COP of exactly 200. Something like COP 198 or 203 would seem to be more probable.

    2. Did your partner in the test take their own measurements, and if so were they similar to what you report?

    3. How long have these QuarkX modules operated providing these results consistently?

    4. You say the photo was taken through a hole in a pipe — are the QuarkXs enclosed in a pipe during normal operation to provide eye protection?

    5. How long does it take to make a QuarkX reactor these days?

    6. Can you tell us who the new partner is? If not, can you say when they will be made known?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  892. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Very important your question 1:
    1- the COP numbers are rounded, because the COP is not number, it is an integral. Therefore to give the exact numbers I should have given many numbers in a frame of reference where xs are the values of time and ys are the values of COP. To make it short I rounded the average.
    2- yes
    3- about 100 hours of effective average
    4- to provide protection not just to the eyes
    5- n.a.
    6- what importance has the name of the Partner ? What is important is that we make a product, not the names listed in the ownership of Leonardo Corporation. When and if our Partner will deem opportune to appear ( if ever) he will do. If he will never do, what is the problem ? Until we do not go public there is no reason at all to communicate anything of the subject. I really do not understand this fever to know who is the Partner, while I totally sympathyze with the fever for the product. The only guy that have good reasons to know who our allies are is our foe, and this is the reason why I do not think it is opportune to disclose our artillery.
    Warm Regards,

    Congratulations on your results, there is no reason why it cannot produce more electricity if the heat is used in a turbine and the electricty produced directly are combined to increase the electricial output. What sort of heat exchanger are you using at those sort of temps.
    Also can the Quark produce just heat and electricity only without light

    Your followers are a really passionate, and most importantly, patient bunch of people. For five years, we have endured. We realize that the E-Cat technology is still not fully ready to be commercialized. But you’ve always given us a future date to hang onto, and generally, delivered on that promise. So, in light of the recent successful conclusion of the preliminary R&D and the signing of a new Partner, when is the next major milestone that we can look forward to going to occur? Within this calendar year, I hope!

I was very glad to hear that it’s helping you understand the theory of the process too. That can only be good as things move forward. The picture was really exciting to see., it’s amazing to think about that light. Thanks again for that.

    Can you tell us a bit about the next steps or is it still a bit early for that.

  918. Argon

    Hello Mr Rossi,
    Since last 6 months have been quite a roller coaster to you but also to many bystanders. You must have noticed heated discussion in many LENR related forums. Would it be fair, in addition to your own report, to allow some trusted third party, like Mats Lewan, Peter Gluck and say Frank Ackland visit your lab and see your technology working at first hand and maybe interview your new Partner without revealing their identity.
    We all admit that final proof would be working product on market, but many readers would breath more easily and would trust their word.

    I really think they deserve it after the considerable amount of bad language among other things they have received just because supporting you without seeing the proof first hand.

  919. Andrea Rossi

    Argon:
    Thank you for the suggestion. I do not follow LENR forums, sincerely, but, nevertheless, I agree with you.
    About the bad language: the more aggressive is the bad language of our foes, the more substantiated becomes their fragility. Who is right does not need to use insults to defend his position.

    One question comes mind right away:
    You previously said the quark can be up to 100% electric if we chose and now you say up to 10%.
    Has this changed, still being assessed or a misunderstanding?
    Thanking you again.
    Best Wishes

    DrD:
    Thank you for your sustain, but I never said or wrote anywhere that electricity could be 100% of the production: that would be a nonsense.

    The results of the QuarkX’s test that will be published tomorrow can be considered solid ? Do they mean that the QuarkX is ready as a product?

  930. Andrea Rossi

    Wayne:
    No. The results are the output of measurements made by me, but reality cannot depend on a subjective act. I honestly made my measurements together with my team and our Pertner, we celebrated, but we know pretty well that there are still shortcomings. The sole real validation will be made by the Customers when and if the QuarkX will hit massively the market. Now we must operate along two directions:
    1- consolidate the reliability of the results and the product
    2- organize a massive production
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  931. Ivan Idso

    Dr. Rossi, you had a dream on New Years Eve… is coming to fruition?

    Thanks for all you are doing!

    Ivan Idso

  932. Andrea Rossi

    Ivan Idso:
    I really hope so, but much remains to do.
    Thank to you for the sustain to our team.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  933. Frank Randall

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    During the test of 10 days the QuarkX has always worked 24/7 ?
    Frank Randall

  934. Frank Randall

    Andrea,

    Congratulations on your progress so far. You’ve mentioned changes to the plant that will be required – F9 – but will that mean another year or so before you go into production? I hope that during this last year, your team has also been preparing for the manufacturing plant as well.

    Thanks,

    Frank Randall

  935. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Randall:
    No; we made some stop for different reasons. The QuarkX cannot be considered ready to be a product, much work remains to be done.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  936. Daniel De Caluwé

    @Giuseppe,
    @Italo R.,

    Congratulations! Your well organized team deserved to win. Tactically strong and well prepared. Nice goals also; good defense and insecurity in our defense; and our players did not develop their full potential, I think. Maybe next time we have to start with the team that played at the end.

    I wish to your Asuri’s a lot of success.

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

  937. Giuseppe

    Daniel De Caluwè,
    Don’t worry, Belgium is a very good team, i’m sure, you will be second….
    Giuseppe

  938. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    If the new partner requires a a)non-disclosure, and a b)secret test of what they have seen, and c)all parties must agree to the release of the results of the test, would you still enter into contract with them?

    We all look forward to the report you have indicated, and that it shows progress, and moves towards manufacturing, soon.

    Tom
    a+b+c = we would worry about you very much.

  939. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    That is not the case. But do not expect a big thing, it is just the resume of the main data from an internal test. Interesting, though. Obviously confidential information will not be given graciously to the competition.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  940. Oystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    In a drawing of an e-cat reactor, a pressure safety valve was indicated.

    Can you tell us the set pressure of these safety valves?

  941. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    1 to 3 bars, which is the limit for the safety.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    To all Italian readers,

    As cold fusion in Belgium was labeled by all official scientific committees as ‘junk science’, we have no researchers in this field, an certainly can not compete with Italian researchers and entrepreneurs like Andrea Rossi, but tonight (Central European Time), and although it will not be easy, we hope to win in another field, somewhere in Lyon (France) I think, against the big Italian team of Asuri’s. Let the best win, and the tifosi of both teams gather in peace for a big match.

    I guess many of you will not follow this blog for an hour and three quarts, and I wonder if even Andrea Rossi will look on some screen?

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel of Belgium.

    (I hope this post is not too late, because the match is about to start…)

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Now that the test is finished, are you able tell if it is a success?

    Warm regards,

    Toussaint François

  964. Chapman

    Sir,

    I know you can not reveal details of your Quark device as yet, but please allow me to ask a generalized question…

    Do you believe, given the current state of development, that you could build a Quark based reactor/generator producing 2.5 MW of electric power that would fit entirely in a standard 48 foot shipping container? That would have to include all support and control systems and it would need to be configured for electrical output at one end via a set of heavy bus bars or terminals.

    If so, while you are pursuing your current customer/partner relationship for commercialization and marketing, I would suggest you take a moment to consider looking into the Freight Rail sector for additional marketplace. A modern Diesel-Electric Locomotive produces 2.2 MW. A shipping container as I describe could be added as a modern “Coal Cart” behind existing locomotives to provide electrical power, and would require zero infrastructure modification.

    Only the subject Locomotive would require the retrofit of the external Power connectors. This would be a HUGE market, requiring minimal points of contact for sales and marketing. It would be totally scalable dependant only upon service success. It would require minimum commitment or investment for a Rail provider to make an initial trial agreement.

    Perfecting the shipping container format would then be marketable as a stand alone power system for a large marketplace outside the Rail environment.

    You could focus then on one single design – one constant footprint – with a guaranteed marketplace – that could keep you building at max capacity for years, all while developing a package that would have universal sales appeal.

    Just a thought…

  965. Andrea Rossi

    Chapman:
    We are not ready for that now. I am not able to answer.
    Thank you for the suggestions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  966. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    I have a request.

    When you compile the report, please publish a graph showing power input vs. temperature for the duration of the tests with the repeated, extended periods of self sustain (for example 30 minutes or longer) in which there was no input power clearly marked. If you used both a thermal imager and a thermocouple to measure temperature, please have two lines — one for each measurement device. Also, if you utilized a control or dummy “Quark” please have a lines on the graph representing it’s input and temperature.

    Such a graph showing the periods of self sustained operation — which you have said can be over an hour — obvious for everyone to see. I know everyone is eager to see data showing the extended periods of self sustain in which the temperature remains constant without input power. They will represent strong evidence of excess heat, because at 1400C or higher a Quark without input power should drop hundreds of degrees in seconds.

    If you could grant this request, it would be a huge personal favor to me.

    Thank you.

    Hank Mills

  967. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    It will not be that kind of report.

    Andrea,

    I hope the end of the test/demonstration with your customer/potential partner finds you in upbeat mood. I’m hopeful that what was needed to be conveyed was successfully accomplished. Good luck with what the future brings. You have managed to stay on track even though there has been, and continues to be, some rather large distractions. I’m hoping you will be able to provide us with just a glimpse of the project on which you have been working.

    Sincerely,

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I would like to ask if you plan to visit the Annual International Conference on Cold Fusion at the University of Missouri in July this year. Other leading researchers into LENR will also be most likely present (e.g. Dr. Hagelstein, Dr. McKubre)

    Would this conference provide a good platform to present some findings to the public or would it be give too much details to your competitors?

    Best regards,

    Julian Becker

    P.S. Any news regarding the Ecat in China? Any interest from potential customers there yet?

    Dear Andrea,
    I read that you are still teamed up with hot lady QuarkX. I guess she is doing most of the work in being extremely hot, maybe sparking and de-light-ful? But what do you do?
    Just one other question that came up. I hope you will be able to tell us if one QuarkX can produce the heat to start-up another, so no additional heater on the second is required?
    Good luck with the results of the test!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    You have mentioned obtaining THRUST from the operation of the E-CAT. Can you describe the DIRECTION of that thrust:
    1. Horizontal.
    2. Vertical.
    3. Depends on the orientation of the E-CAT.
    4. Depends on the orientation of the device/structure in which the E-CAT is installed.

  1009. Valerio

    Dear Andrea:
    in the new book of Vessela Nikolova “Ecat the new fire” there is a document that shows evidence of the fact that your enemies in Italy in the year 2014 made a complaint against you saying that the E-Cat was a fraud, but the justice, after a due investigation, dismissed the case with a verdict in which is written that your behavior is correct. This is important, because gives you evidence that the people of Italy respects your work, even if the silent majority has to work and has not time to contrast the vociferous imbeciles that have not better to do than write stupidities on a matter they do not know, or, worst, are paid to try to assassinate your character as they did in past. Don’t give up, Andrea, we are with you and we trust in your very hard work. We see that you are fighting at the same time against your enemies and against the technological difficulties, in both cases not without a strong efficiency too!
    Godspeed,

    Hello Mr. Rossi,

    from the questions and your answers in this forum i conclude that you spend a lot of time and work on a test of the QuarkX.
    I heard the name many times, but i have no idea what that is – is it a component/element like the one tested in the Lugano-test ? or is it a system like the 1MW eCat?

    greetings
    DvH

    Some of your detractors now think that I am just you talking to yourself… I quote:

    “I am always amused by watching Rossi speak to himself through one of his sock puppets!!”

    I’m sure they will think this post was also posted by you! I find that quite funny.

    Dear Andrea,

    Remember the story about the 100.1 degrees C output temperature?

    Looks like the IH insiders finally admitted that the values they have are more like 103 or more precisely 103.9 degrees C.

    I now know who was telling me the truth on this matter.

    I hope the entire truth soon comes out. Good luck!

    Sebastian

  1018. Norma Gaylor

    Dear Andrea:
    Did you remove any measurement system during the 1 MW E-Cat test and substitute it with something else ?
    Cheers,
    Norma

  1019. Andrea Rossi

    Norma Gaylor:
    I never removed anything: by the way, in perfect agreement with IH all the official and certified instrumentation for the measurements has been installed by the ERV and are property of the ERV. He installed all the instrumentation, assisted by the men of IH and me, he has disassembled all the instrumentation at the end of the test, assisted by the men if IH, their Attorney, me, my Attorney: the ERV then has brought away all his instrumentation to make it checked to control that there have not been modification of any kind and that the margin of error was not modified.
    Let me remind everyone that the ERV is an expert nuclear engineer, with experience of work in nuclear power plants and in certifications of industrial plants, mainly in the energy field: for this reason he has been chosen jointly between Cherokee Fund ( from which eventually has been born IH ) and Leonardo Corporation.

    You know, I think the mudslinging is intended to keep the news from the mainstream. No editor wants his forums to be infected with insults. Especially if there is no tangible evidence available about who is right.

    We know that there is an imminent solution through the work of Andrea Rossi and his team, but until “F8” is to be “deleted”, it is nothing more than hope.

    Hope is obviously very important because it keeps the focus in the right direction: towards new opportunities and solutions. Away from the scraping and hoarding.

    A baby is best born after nine months. When he is completely finished and viable. If he comes too early, you have a lot of problems. If anyone comes to premature birth visit, the mother of the child can not provide the necessary care.

    In this respect: thanks to the mud-throwers because of the break that they generate. (A little irony)

    Often you read that there will be divested in old energy sources. What was previously privatized, it now seems that some want to sell to the government. Perhaps some would withhold the good news until after the sale of the assets. The question is how many intermediaries and smokescreens would you use to hide all this?
    Does anyone have a better idea?

    This was a continuation of the original first ever discovery of Giant Multipole Resonances 1970/71 (M1, E2) (R. Pitthan, Z. Physik 260(1973)283-304) in Darmstadt/Germany. With the very low momentum transfers of both machines the multipolarity of this Resonance, later dubbed cutely Pygmy or Piccolo resonance, could be determined model-free to be E2.
    The measurements in Nuclei from A=28 to A=238 clearly showed an (N-Z)**2 dependence, which should be neither classified as isoscalar, nor isovector.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have a few basic questions about the electricity produced by the QuarkX?

    1) Is it directly usable AC or DC, if yes, which?

    2) Or is it a complex electric signal that needs to be converted to usable AC/DC outside of QuarkX? If yes, what is the expected conversion efficiency?

    3) Is the 100W produced by a single QuarkX before or after conversion to AC/DC?

    4) Can you tell the output voltage and frequency?

    5) Can it follow a variable load (between 0% and 100%) or does the load need to be constant?

    Big thanks if you can answer any of the above questions.

    Dear Koen Vandewalle,

    Thank you for your response. I had not considered fuel cell technology as an analog. I also agree, to the extent that I can confirm this, that Andrea Rossi’s answers are true, consistent and logical. That is one reason I read and respond on this site.

    I believe my previous questions are still valid. For eCat technology to be economically competitive, it must be more cost effective than current power generation means. This could be done by efficiency or with other considerations (cost of fuel, environmental impacts, etc.). Since it appears this application is being studied, there must be the potential to achieve that goal.

  1074. Engineer48

    Lest we forget:
    http://www.journal-of-nuclear-physics.com/?p=810&cpage=2#comment-734612
    Slight reformatting was done to improve readability and the year, 2013, added.

    ==========
    AND HERE IS AN UPDATE OF TODAY, JULY 8TH 2013:

    The past three days have been holidays for most, but for us have been a tremendous period of work during which we made a historic page for what concerns our tech:
    for the first time, an E-Cat module, entirely produced by our USA Partner in the new factory (a magnificence), charged with the charge made by the Partner’s CEO, using the materials we teached to buy, prepare, manipulate, treat, to make the charges, assembled, insulated, has started its operation, and the results are the same of the E-Cats built by us.

    This event means that for the first time an E-Cat not built by me, not controlled by me and not charged by me, not tested in my factory, but manufactured from third parties upon our instructions and know how has worked properly.

    This is the first unit of the plant that will give to the factory of our USA Partner all its necessary thermal energy, and is also the school ship for the employees.

    It is very important that it has been completely made by the Customer, not by me: it is the first of millions, but the first is always special.

    We celebrated with Coca Cola (alcohol is forbidden in that factory).

    All the former plants, even if built in the USA, had been supplied with reactors cores made by me, so this is a very important step.
    ==========

    Back then we did not know IH was the partner that had achieved this result.
    Sure seems Rossi did it fact transfer all the IP to IH.

  1075. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Today was an important day in the testing for you, and we all are hoping that things went smoothly. Did the QuarkX(3) perform carefree for you today?

    Dear Steven N. Karels,
    I share most – if not all – of your curiosities.

    About the information that is no longer “for free” on JONP:

    QuarkX was created after a vision, more than it was an evolutionary version of the E-Cat. The MW devices are more an evolution of the original invention.

    It is not forbidden to have visions, but if you preach too much about these visions, then your competitors, a.k.a. “former friends”, will put you at the stake, and then steal your ideas. (As Joan of Arc)

    Please remark that Andrea Rossi did not answer “no” on your last question. He’s always (say 99%) honest. That’s a bit of a weak spot, but this makes it worth to remain true to him.

    Thrust and direct electricity production were mentioned and confirmed more than once.

    Carnot machines have worse efficiency than fuelcell technology (Bloom energy, used in data centers). If we study this, then it becomes clear that maybe in E-Cat technology the same basics for improvement can be found. Especially by Andrea Rossi who is an expert in both matters.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    2. You tested three of them. Were they the same?
    3. Or were they ‘tuned’ to optimize for Light, Heat and Electrical energy?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I noticed in one of the responses a reference to “Thrust” being produced by an eCat reactor. I may be in error on this reading.

    If I read correctly, as you saying you observed a net thrust during testing? Is this a reactionless thrust (no mass ejection based)?

  1095. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    That’s part of a specific R&D on course for jet application, but the stage is very immature, so I have not yet information worth to be published.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1096. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Koen Vandewalle,

    Thank you for addressing my question. While your comments are relevant to the current ongoing litigation and the patent process in general, I do not think I was asking questions which, by their nature, were process specific that might be used in a legal action or a patent process. I do long for the olden days of JONP when simple answers could be addressed without nearly always automatic rejection or disclaimer. But such is the passage of time.

    My questions were very general. Does AR, given the knowledge gained over the last few years of very productive work, foresee electrical power generation using eCat technology? He use to acknowledge this possibility in previous years readily on JONP. I was looking to see if his perspective(s) had changed.

    For years, the assumption was a Carnot based electrical power generation approach, most likely replacing coal-fueled power generation with the obvious reductions in environmental impacts. We even had discussions about the efficacy of using natural gas as the heat source for the eCat process as the generated electricity from such a power generation plant was “too expensive” to be consumed in such a feedback process. That was when the expected COP was 6 as opposed to an effective long term COP of 20 or 30. Things have changed and I asked the question.

    The next question dealt with direct electrical power generation – bypassing the traditional steam production and turbines and going to a system that produces some form of electrical power directly which is later transformed (with some conversion loss) into a usable form of electricity. Obviously, it does little good to produce electricity if it cannot be used by the customers.

    The third question dealt with comparative efficiencies. If electricity can be produced by an eCat technology-based Carnot process (which requires a higher operating temperature than 100C for efficiency purposes) and the process is to be competitive with current Carnot cycle electrical power generation systems which have an efficiency at or above 40%, then the eCat must theoretically be able to produce a working fluid temperature at or above current systems. If the eCat system, conceptually, can produce direct electrical generation, then to be commercially competitive with the Carnot cycle based units, its over all efficiency including transformation efficiency, must be equal to or greater than that achieved using the Carnot approach. Unless there are other considerations. These other considerations could possibly include environmental, such as a reduced waste heat impact on the local environment or such improved reliability or cost avoidance of replacement or consumable parts that the lower efficiency is acceptable.

    So I do not ask for the “secret sauce or flavor”, but only clarification of where the “vision” leads this promising technology. It has been six years since AR burst upon the JONP scene with the eCat revelation. The earlier years revealed much about a possible golden era of low cost, pollution free energy generation. Not so much now. Information release and informed response is more limited, almost superficial. With the customary F8s, too soon, I cannot answer… I long for the informed exchange of ideas, concepts and derivative calculations.

  1097. Susan Day

    There is a humongous and profound logical inconsistency here. It is almost as if IH’s view of the

    truth is context dependent. Either IH is criminally incompetent for taking 150 millions of their

    investors money or they are lying up the gazoo about the COP of Rossi’s reactor. I see no middle

    ground here.

  1098. Andrea Rossi

    Susan Day:
    The same is true for their investors, for example Woodford, who gave them 50 millions of their investors exclusively thanks to the visits they made to assist to the tests made in Raleigh by IH with the E-Cat and in Doral with the 1 MW plant test. Not to mention the Committee from China. Not to mention the fact that IH used the report made in April 2015 by the ERV to collect that money, considering that the results were the same obtained in the last report, issued on April 2016 by the same ERV, dubbed ” not made by proper laboratories” by IH…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1099. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Steven N. Karels,
    Since some confidential information about the E-Cat technology has been stolen, and since some of this information is now abused to file patents, it would be unwise for Andrea Rossi to give more hints about his R&D.

    It would be a difficult and costly thing to regain control over intellectual property if discoveries werde made, and patents filed for immature technologies.

    The patent does not protect the rightful inventor, but gives legal rights that may be -unfortunately- abused heavily. Even if thereby general interest suffers a huge loss.

    This makes this blog a little less useful.
    This makes me believe -more than ever- in the importance of open source.

    With every new secret sauce or flavour, the patent wars revive. Mostly won by the richest ones, because there are thousands of ways to lie or to hinder progress in court, but most of the time, there is only one truth. And the judges are just the judges, they are not above the Law. They are not God. They do not know the truth, but if they did, even then they must respect the patent law that -unfortunately- says: “the one who filed first, becomes the owner of the IP”. Previously it was not.

    Andrea does not agree with that, which is his rightfull choice.

    In twenty years from now, the people who live then, will know who was right. Not sure that the case in court will be over by then.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Can you comment on eCat technology and residential/commercial electrical power generation?

    Do you foresee commercial generation being done by a more conventional Carnot Cycle approach using eCat technology?

    Do you see commercial electrical power generation being accomplished by some other means, such as direct energy conversion?

    If some other means (than Carnot Cycle), would you agree that the direct conversion efficiency must be higher than that obtained by the Carnot Cycle (typically around 40%+) to be economically viable or are there other considerations that would affect energy production cost, such as environmental, or reliability?

    Dr Rossi,
    IH has applied on June 1 2016 for a patent that is the photocopy of your former patents and of the Lugano report.
    They have put T Barker Dameron as the inventor ( the inventor of the Rossi Effect !!!). How can the investors of Cherokee Funds and of Woodford accept to be fooled with a so blatant fraud, made by these guys ? How can they hope that a patent application that is a copycat of your prior art and of the Lugano Report made by the third independent party professors can be taken seriously by the patent office ? The more they act, the more they talk, the more we understand that they are just fraudsters. What really baffles me is Woodford: how is possible that they do not understand that this patent of Industrial Heat is a fraud against you and that you will destroy what they are doing ? Are they so stupid or there is something very bad about Woodford in all this situation ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    In the book “Ecat il nuovo fuoco” of Vessela Nikolova there is a photo of you while fishing a big fish in the sea around Islamorada, one of the Keys Islands in the south of Florida.
    Two questions:
    1- did you eat that fish ?
    2- that area is populated by many sharks: since you were in a small boat, were you not afraid ?
    Cheers,
    Wollmer

  1115. Andrea Rossi

    Wollmer:
    He,he,he…
    1- no, we just have taken a photo with that fish and immediately gave him back to the sea. Those fishes cannot be killed because are considered endangered species.
    2- yes, there are sharks, but I am accustomed to deal with sharks…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    in previous comments you talked about the robotized E-Cat Fab.
    If I can I would like to express my opinion: at this early stage, there is no sense building an E-Cat Fab extremely robotized, your product is in the making and will undergo many developments, as well as manufacturing methods, will be a continuous evolution of practices and methodologies. You run the risk that you have to devote most of the time to the robots and how to adapt them to new methods, instead you are at a stage where your focus should still be the ECAT and the problems that will inevitably come out.
    Robots are welcome, but the bare minimum, good technicians are the best thing, then, when construction methods will be stabilized you can automate everything.
    Only an opinion based on my experience.
    Best Regards, Giuseppe

    Seen on lenr-forum – interesting ..

    Hi all

    Now IH have lost E-Cat License and IP, who will manufacture E-Cats in the US?

    There is talk of ABB.

    I personally think we are looking at a number of large companies manufacturing E-Cats: Siemens, GE, HP, Ford, GM, Toyota etc. After IH fumbled it, they are not going to be able to afford the court case up against, the wealth of moneyed interest scrambling for the ball.

    Hard to believe IH let the goose who laid the Golden Eggs just fly away.

    I wonder what their investors will do?

    Kind Regards walker

  1122. Andrea Rossi

    Jerry Challenger:
    The manufacturing will be made also in the USA by Leonardo Corporation.
    ABB is the manufacturer of the robotized lines we have chosen.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

    What an amazing year it’s been. For sure you have had some tough battles and had to make some tough decisions. But you also made some amazing discoveries and made unexpected achievements too. I can only begin to wonder what things will come next. I wish you only good things for today and the future and a very happy birthday.

  1134. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Yes, I had to take difficult decisions, but they were necessary to defend the evolution of our work.
    The next year of my life will be probably even more difficult, but surely we will advance along the path that will bring the E-Cat massively on the market. We are ready to fight. F8.
    Thank you for your wishes,

    Hey hey, don’t let me behind, me too was born as Joseph Fine on May 29th, so let me enter in the group together with Andrea… Happy Birthday!

    Dear Andrea, about your birthday spent together with Her: IMHO every good technology (I mean the technical and functional parts, regardless the looks of the case, of the aesthetic design, etc) has an inherent aesthetic seductive quality; there are countless examples, from light bulbs to steam trains to microchips… in your opinion, QuarkX, your new building block, is the most aesthetically beautiful, the most elegant among your creatures? I say this because I’m a little upset for the fact you never showed us Her looks; at the time, I was hammered by the revolutionary, pure and rough appearance of the Dogbones: but the last images I remember date back a few years ago, and I think that with all the testing workload they have turned dirty, stinky and ugly. I think some of your most recent trackers, with their struggling for replication, and despite having copied basically your concept, came out recently with some pretty and lean objects:

    https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/3225-me356-Reactor-parameters-part-2/?postID=18702#post18702

    do you think Andrea that, with your last QuarkX iteration, you left them behind in the dust again, also from Her beauty attributes standpoint?

  1167. Andrea Rossi

    Orsobubu:
    Thank you for your delighting wishes and the suggestion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1171. Albert Ellul

    First of all may I wish you a very happy birthday, health and success.

    Today you replied thus to Joseph Fine: “We are in a steady mode, because we are looking for a final product.” This is great news following so much ups and downs in your quest to achieve a commercial unit that produces power cheaply, cleanly and environmentally clean. This has been the dream of many, a dream which you are on the verge of materialising.

    Permit me to ask one question. Will the Quark X be the basic unit for a domestic version considering its modular properties?

  1172. Andrea Rossi

    Albert Ellul:
    Answer: yes.
    Thank you !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    I remembered, I am kind off a day too late.
    Still have another great day. just celebrate twice 😉

    “By the way, here is an anecdote: you are not early 1 day, because I have been born on the 2nd of June, but erroneously I have been registered by the clerk of Milan on the 3rd of June, even if I have been born at 9 a.m….This has been a premonition of the troubles I was going to have with the rules, for all my life! It was just minutes after I was born and already I got problems! (he,he,he…)”
