  1. Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

    Dear Andrea!

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

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

  4. Andrea Rossi

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

  5. Enrico

    Dear Andrea,
    The perfect module would be an Ecat QX of 10 kW, easy to combine to reach industrial needs, but ready for domestic use.
    Do you agree?
    Cheers
    Enrico

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Enrico:
    I agree

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

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

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

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

  14. Andrea Rossi

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

  15. Italo R.

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

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

  16. Andrea Rossi

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

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    can this article be useful to suggest Ecat applications related to water scarcity?

  18. Andrea Rossi

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

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Your story and the words Prof Sergio Focardi said in an interview- google “Focardi: why Andrea Rossi made what all the others did not”- make me think to the character of Wagner’s Parsifal.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you still teying to make a single reactor of the Ecat QX with a high power?
    Thank you if you find the time to answer,

  22. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Follow up to my previous information.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  32. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

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

    All my support for your work

    Raffaele

  33. Andrea Rossi

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

    Is it not better the Rankine cycle for the Ecat, respect the Carnot cycle?

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Karl:
    No, the Rankine cycle can turn useful at low temperatures, but thoroughly studies we made years ago have convinced us that the Carnot is always more efficient if the primary is water steam.

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

  43. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

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

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

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

  44. Andrea Rossi

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

  45. Dear Dr. Rossi:

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

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

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  46. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G.Zavela:
    During a normal operation is one thing, but you have to make a distinction between a normal operation and an emergency operation or a wrong operation. Anyway this chapter is not depending on my decisions.I sympathyze with you.

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

  51. Eric Ashworth

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

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

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

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

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

    Hello A. Rossi

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

    Best regards

    Raffaele

  56. Andrea Rossi

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

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

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

  58. Andrea Rossi

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

  59. A.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    How much long you think will be the payback period of an indistrial Ecat?

  60. Andrea Rossi

    A.:
    less than 2 years.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  61. Elliot

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which is the max temperature you can reach on a secondary circuit?
    Cheers
    Elliot

  62. Andrea Rossi

    Elliot:
    600 C degrees.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  63. Andrea Rossi

    To all our Chinese Readers:
    Happy New Year Of The Dog!
    Andrea Rossi

  64. Andrea Rossi

    Martin, Ruby:
    Correct.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  65. Martin

    @Ruby:
    probably this is the reason why Dr Rossi cannot give away the IP of the old Ecat.

  66. Gus

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

  67. Andrea Rossi

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

  68. Ruby

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

  69. Andrea Rossi

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

  70. Claudio

    @Gus:
    Thank you for the link, very interesting conference and blog.
    Claudio

  71. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  72. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    a- also
    b- also
    c- yes
    d- also
    e- do you have a ctistal ball at hand?
    f- also
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  73. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

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

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  74. Andrea Rossi

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

  77. Sven

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    How is proceeding the development of your work in Sweden?

  78. Andrea Rossi

    Sven:
    Well.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  79. Toussaint françois

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    You are progressing fast in the industrialisation of the E-CAT QX , in the past it was more complicated how does it feel to be running at your pace ?

    Warm regards,

    Toussaint françois

  80. Priscilla

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    As of today how many probabilities you think are there, that within this year the first industrialized product will be put in the market?

  81. Andrea Rossi

    Priscilla:
    Today I think between 80 and 90%.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  82. Kira Grau

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    In the video of the Stockholm event at IVA of November 24 I noticed that the Ecat QX had a sticker with a black cat silhouette and a red ball: is that the trade mark that will be put on the Ecats?
    Cheers
    Kira

  83. Andrea Rossi

    Kira Grau:
    Yes, that is our registered trade mark.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  84. Lindsey

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Where do you foresee the first presentation of the industrialized product will be made?
    Godspeed,
    Lindsey

  85. Andrea Rossi

    Lindsey:
    As things have developed now, I think the first presentation of the product will be made in the USA.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  86. Bernie Morrissey

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Would a jet engine driven by E-cat QX make less noise than one driven by combustion?

    Bernie Morrissey

  87. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Morrissey:
    All I can say is that the Ecat does not emit noise.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  88. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

    Thank you if you can answer,

    Frank Acland

    4. Do you mean that

  89. Andrea Rossi

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

  90. Dino

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

  91. Andrea Rossi

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

  93. Raffaele Bongo

    Dear A. Rossi

    Thank you very much for the humorous little nod on my recent remarks. I am a fervent supporter and as such I can not imagine anything other than your success. So like any supporter I make predictions and dreams. It would be a nice success 76 years to the day after our great countryman Enrico Fermi.
    Is an E-Cat radiator with one or two KWs economically feasible in the future to replace the current electric radiators of our homes?
    Best regards
    Raffaele

  94. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    Yes.
    Thank you for your support.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  95. Philip Tolson

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

  96. L.MD

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

  97. Andrea Rossi

    L.MD:
    Thanks, I agree.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  98. Gerard McEk

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

  99. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  100. Luann Luers

    Dear Andrea,
    I read on EW that both the patents of Piantelli have been revoked by the European Patent Office upon request of Leonardo Corporation. Is such revoke useful to your company?
    L.L.

  101. Andrea Rossi

    Luann Luers:
    The issues of the defense of our intellectual property is left to our patent attorneys. Our patents have been worked upon by 39 ( Thirtynine ) patent attorneys.
    My role in regard of the patents is just to give a detailed description of my inventions, all the other issues are up to the attorneys.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  102. Angelo V.

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

  103. Andrea Rossi

    Angelo V.:
    Yes, we are working with assemblies and they act just as an aritmetic summatory.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  104. Alan

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you still working on the jet engine fueled by the Ecat QX?

  105. Andrea Rossi

    Alan:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  106. Key

    I’m impressed, I must say, after watching the video of the IVA-Stockholm demo of Nov 24 on http://www.ecat.com

  108. Bedy

    Dear Andrea,
    How many women have worked with you during the last 10 years on the LENR in percentage respect men?
    Bedy

  109. Andrea Rossi

    Bedy:
    About 30%.
    But qualitatively their importance is 50%.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  110. SK

    Mr Rossi,
    I think the Ecat does not exist.

  111. Andrea Rossi

    SK:
    Thank you for your opinion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  112. Dr Rossi, consider this:Bitcoin has increased in value by over 3000 in the last few years alone. The Crypto World is exploding with potential right now – this is the time to start and profit! Find out more; http://bit.ly/-cryptocurrency

  113. Andrea Rossi

    Nila Nikirk:
    I am convinced that bitcoins are a ponzi scheme vehicles. Sorry.
    Warm Regards,

  114. Merlyn

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for the Stockholm event videos published on http://www.ecat.com
    Probably the most important demo on LENR of the last 20 years.
    Godspeed,
    Merlyn

  115. Andrea Rossi

    Merlyn:
    Thank you for your attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  116. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

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

    If not, can you explain why not?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  117. Andrea Rossi

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

  118. Harvey

    Dr. Rossi,

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

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

    Best Regards,
    Harvey

  119. Andrea Rossi

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

  120. Attilio Gandi

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    When will you start to sell the Ecats in France?

  121. Andrea Rossi

    Attilio Gandi:
    The sales will probably start within 2018.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  122. Eric Ashworth

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

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

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

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

    Therefore two cubic neutrals of opposite potential.

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

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

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

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

  123. Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth,
    Thank you for your insight,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  124. Chu

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

  125. Andrea Rossi

    Chu:
    Very interesting.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  126. Fox

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

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

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

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

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

    Best wishes to you and your work
    Fox

  127. Andrea Rossi

    Fox:
    Thank you for the links and the insight.

  128. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

    Thank you for your replies,

    Tom

  129. Andrea Rossi

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

  130. Albert

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I strongly suggest you to make the basic industrial module with a power of 100 kW, not 1 MW: you will enlarge enormously the market.
    Godspeed,

  131. Andrea Rossi

    Albert:
    Thank you for the intelligent suggestion,

  133. Joseph Fine

    Dear Raffaele and Andrea Rossi,

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

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

    Hopeful regards,

    Joseph Fine

  134. DvH

    Hello Mr. Rossi,

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

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

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

  138. Caleb Warf

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

  139. Andrea Rossi

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

  147. Julian

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Why are you not giving more information or demos before the product presentation?

  148. Andrea Rossi

    Julian:
    Read carefully all the presentations, demos, publications made by Leonardo Corporation, all published on
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    and tell me who has given more information than 1/100 of the information we published.
    Let’s be serious.
    No more information or demos will be given before the presentation of our products for two reasons:
    1- protection of our IP
    2- lack of time, because we now are exclusively focused on the industrialization

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

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

  154. Andrea Rossi

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

    Thank you if you can answer,

  179. Stefano

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

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

    Stefano

    Give some time frames, not dates but months.

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

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

    Dear Andrea,

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

    Thanks,

    Dear A. Rossi

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

    Best regards

    Raffaele

  237. Andrea Rossi

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

  238. Buck

    Dear Andrea,

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Interesting, but I think the authorization process either for this or for the suggestion to use thorium have still a big problem to resolve for what concerns the authorizations, since there they are talking of radioactive fuels that will still remain as nuclear wastes for long periods. They have a solution to the problem of the global warming that could turn out to be worse than the problem they resolve.

    Dear Andrea,

    1. Will the first E-Cat Plants be equipped with heat exchangers and plumbing that will allow them to produce easily hot water/steam?

    2. Will customers be able to easily attach the plant to existing hot water/steam systems?

    3. Will the first E-Cat Plants be capable of delivering supercritical steam?

    4. Will it be possible for plant operators to adjust the temperature of the plant to meet their needs?

    5. What will be the approximate cost of a 1MW plant?

    Many thanks for being willing to answer questions on the JONP,

    Frank Acland

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