    Dear Andrea,

    Is the original idea of a Gas-Cat yours, based on an industrial need that you have knowledge of ? Or was it an initiative of one of your (potential) customers ?

    It differs a lot from the original E-Cat and the Hot-Cat.

    Hello Dr. Rossi ,
    I enclose a very interesting article on one of the first applications that could have the Hot Cat in Italy ie DISTRICT HEATING .
    3 million inhabitants in Italy using heat .
    The Hot Cat would be the ideal system to reduce the cost of heating, cooling and domestic hot water .

    Wrong.
    Photons carry electromagnetic force, but they are electrically neutral, therefore cannot interact with the electromagnetic force!

    Dear Mr Rossi, you say that you are far ahead of most of your competition.
    Are you taking into account that for many years you had a very small team working on your Research and that now, those who are clever enough to see the potential of your discovery can put many hands to work.
    Would this not mean that the competition could catch you up in a very short time.
    Best wishes

  8. Andrea Rossi

    Georgehants:
    You are right, but we are working at the maximum of our possibilities, independently from what can happen outside. We must think that our competition is as strong as we are, if not better, and act consequently, true or not as it may be.

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    Concerning the longevity of the fuel – have you tried vibrating the fuel contents during self-sustain mode to see what effect this vibration has on the reaction. For some reason I have this vision of it only being the surface atoms facing the Hydrogen that are reacting (due to the relatively small amount of powder charge actually consumed) and thought that vibrations may bring fresh material to the top. If the vibration does lengthen the overall output time of a single charge, in the 1MW reactor, single charges could be vibrated in sequence (say one individual charge per day) without decreasing the overall real-time output of the whole 1MW plant significantly whilst extending the charge longevity of all the individual e-cat units.

    Of course all this would depend on vibration making a beneficial difference to longevity of charge power output :¬)

    Just a rambling(and no doubt ignorant)thought; a little different from the usual questions you get these days though!

    Dear Andrea,
    What amazes me is the fact that you have been able to keep the recipient and the location of your delivered unit a secret this long. Even the Manhattan project, one of the most guarded government secrets, had a Russian spy who was divulging information about the atomic project back to Moscow. You must have a very loyal crew(at least 25 indicated by your blogs)who have not succumbed to the possible temptation of easy money or sharing information with an intimate acquaintance. Almost as miraculous as your machine!

    For those of us who love to do independent analyses — Can you tell us the approximate mass of the fuel going into the 100+ reactors for the 1 MW thermal unit? Can we assume a 1 gram fuel mass per reactor?

  30. Robert Curto

    Dear Wladimir Guglinski,
    I read in some blogs you are complaining that Dr. Andrea Rossi has spammed your comments to sway the attention to the fact that you have discovered how the E-Cat works, you also have accused him of giving wrong information, to not allow anybody to explain how the E-Cat works !
    Excuse me, but all this is ridiculous. First of all Dr. Andrea Rossi has always
    said he does not want , or cannot talk about the mechanism that makes the
    Rossi Effect, so he swayed nothing, just said he cannot give this kind of information, secondly he repeatedly said that he does not agree with your theories and that they have nothing to do with the E-Cat, and also he has repeatedly said he adheres to the Standard Model.
    He always gently hosted your comments and published your articles, that all the other Magazines have always refused. He offered you unlimited space on his blog.
    Now he spams several comments of yours, and you insult him !
    I think that anyone with thinking faculty can understand that he spammed your comments because, as I read on the other blog, you have mixed up your theories and the E-Cat connected theory.
    With the E-Cat he probably wants not to involve your theories.
    I would like to hear from Dr. Andrea Rossi, if I have guessed correctly.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    For the 1 MW plant now in operation, can you tell us whether:

    1. Fuel has been added or removed since the plant began operation.

    2. If there has been no fuel added or removed, is there a time before the expiration of the one year operating period when fuel addition or removal is planned.

    3. Whether the quantity of fuel used has met or not met your expectations for fuel consumed.

    Thanks

    Bob

  32. Andrea Rossi

    Bob:
    One of the things we have to test is the duration of a charge under the stress of a 1 MW plant in a long period. We plan not to change the charge until we have a decrease of efficiency, to check which is its real duration under stress. Due information about this issue will be given at the end of the test, probably within one year. Good question.

    The issue is much more complex than you say; isotopic shifts are caused by reactions and themselves cause further reactions, about which, obviously, I cannot give information, as I wrote many times.
    The role of hydrogen is foundamental. All I meant is just that the main nuclear reactions are not necessarily fusion.

    Andrea Rossi:
    Since you believe the energy source in the Ecat is isotopic shifts, can you give us any guidance at all about the role the hydrogen plays? Do you think that at some point the hydrogen could be eliminated?

    What do you suggest, regarding the LENR, to a university student of Phyisics? What would you suggest him to read?
    W.G.

  40. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone:
    To a University student of Physics I suggest to let alone LENR and study Physics as his Professors teach the matter to him. What a student has to do is to learn as much as possible and as well as possible . Most University Prof of Physics are very good teachers; I have known many of them, even many that think LENR can’t work, and all of them have a very solid knowledge of Physics foundamentals. The period students spend in University is one of the foundamental pillars of their future, and they have not to play with this fact. First of all they have to learn, and to learn they have to study. I would say that to study at least 6 hours per day, plus the time of the lessons is a good rythm. This does not leave much time to make other things seriously. After they will have got the degree, at that point they can look for diversifications. Example: Picasso has been able to become the Picasso we usually refer to after learning to paint as a Raffaello in the Art Academy he attended; that’s how eventually he became Picasso.

    Herb Gillis,

    If Flame temperature were the primary consideration, you might use Magnegas instead of Acetylene. You can also listen to this awful musical background. Perhaps the flame temperature of Magnegas is too high! (You could melt everything!!)

    Independent tests have established that MagneGas™ with a flame temperature of 5,819°C / 10,560°F (Verified by CCNY and the Institue of Ultraspectroscopy http://www.magnegas.com/docs/MG-Flame-report.pdf) is the fastest, most precise and most energy efficient cutting fuel available today.

    Joe,
    I think I finally discovered how occurs the capture of the pair electron-positron by the proton when it is accelerated toward the Ni nucleus in the Rossi-Effect.

    The mechanism is caused by a combination between the disturbance in the helical trajectory of the proton and a shrinkage-dilation in the orbit of the electron 2s1.

    It happens as shown in the Figure bellow:
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Shrinkage_of_the_electron%27s_orbit_in_the_Ni-3Li7.png

    FIG. 1:
    Before the Ni and 3Li7 are coupled along the z-axis, the orbit of the 2s1 electron has a small radius, because the orbit is situated in the 3Li7.

    FIG. 2:
    When Ni and 3Li7 are coupled, the orbit of the 2s1 is shared by the two electrospheres of Ni and 3Li7. As the electrosphere of Ni is larger, the orbit of 2s1 has a dilation.

    FIG. 3:
    The orbit 2s1 begins to attract the proton, and the proton begins to attract the orbit 2s1, and therefore the proton is pulling the orbit toward the 3Li7 nucleus.
    At the same time, the component Ft begins to cause a shrinkage in the orbit 2s1:
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png
    Therefore the orbit 2s1 has displacement toward the 3Li7 nucleus, while the orbit also experiences a shrinkage.

    FIG. 4:
    The orbit 2s1 continues to have shrinkage, and a displacement along the 3Li7 nucleus. The shrinkage and the displacement occur discretely (proportional to multiples of Planck’s constant)

    FIG. 5:
    Finally, the proton crosses the plane of the orbit 2s1.
    Well, then now the proton is pulling the orbit 2s1 toward the Ni nucleus.
    So immediately the orbit 2s1 experiences a large displacement going to take its initial position, like it had earlier in the FIG. 2, and therefore the orbit experiences a very big dilation.
    The large dilation of the orbit 2s1 captures a pair positron-electron from the aether, the proton captures the electron, and the positron is emitted.

    The phenomenon occurs similarly as happens in the atom, when the electron jumps from an energy level to another one. When the elecron jumps, the atom captures a pair “particle-antiparticle” from the aether (the photon), and the atom emits the photon.

    wlad

    Wladimir,

    You write,
    “And when the proton crosses this point where Ft = Fz, the force Ft becomes stronger, and finally the proton decays in a neutron.”

    Must beta+ decay occur exactly at the point in space where Ft = Fz? If so, why? If not, does this mean that Ft = Fz is just a rough estimate?
    ————————————————-

    Joe,
    actually it is more complex than shown in the figure.
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png

    Because that situation shown in the figure occurs when the proton and the electon are in phase (both them are in the right side regarding the center of the helical trajectory).
    In this case Ft tries to increase the radius of the proton’s helical trajectory.

    But as the proton has acceleration, it means that the proton and the electron are not always in phase.

    When the proton and the electron are out of phase (the proton at right, and the eletron at left side of the center of the helical trajectory).
    In this case Ft tries to shrinkage the radius of the proton’s helical trajectory.

    So,
    as the proton progresses in its motion, actually the radius of the helical trajectory experiences a very fast dilation-shrinkage.

    When the proton hits the plane of the orbit, Fz= 0, and Ft is maximum. And therefore the maximum dilation-shrinkage in the radius of the helical trajectory occurs when the proton is crossing the plane of the orbit.

    I dont know where is the point where the proton captures the pair electron-positron. But probable it is when the proton hits the plane of the electron’s orbit, because it is the point where occurs the maximum dilation-shrinkage of the cross-section of the proton’s orbit around the center of its helical trajectory.

    Joe,
    also note that, as the proton progresses in its motion toward the plane of the orbit, we have:

    1- The component Ft increases

    2- The component Ft is maximum when the proton hits the plane of the electron’s orbit

    It means that while the proton is moving, the radius of the electron’s orbit also is submitted to a shrinkage.
    So, it is reasonable to suppose that the radius of the electron’s orbit experiencies discrete contractions (discrete shrinkages in the radius, multiples of the Planck’s constant).
    The components Fz and Fm contribute for the shrinkage of the radius of the electron’s orbit.

    But when the proton crosses the plane of the orbit, the components Fz and Fm change their action, and now they contribute for the expansion of the radius of the electron’s orbit.

    Therefore, when the proton crosses the plane, the radius of the electron’s orbit can experience a big expansion (multiple of the Planck’s constant), and such expansion on the surface of the electron’s orbit is responsible for extracting the pair electron-positron from the aether (a similar phenomenon as occurs in the atom, when the electron emits photons extracting them from the aether because the electron changed its orbit from one energy level to another in the electrosphere of the atom).

    wlad

    Felix, OMG that’s an amazing, professional elaboration. It is a long time I would propose to Nikolova a movie script of The New Fire, but lacked an actor and director up to the task. I have to say that the face measures do match very well, but the most interesting fact is the matching during the face animated movements, where the mind of the observers automatically fills and compensates the less than perfect details. You could make a great service to art, to the comprension of the head of the inventor and, ultimately, to the comprension of the inner reactor and science itself, if you posted the video elaborated in such a way to hide the left side with a black matter or something. We cannot elaborate on the E-cat features, because they are not disclosed, so we are forced to twiddle with its inventor’s features. I think we’re into something big here.

    Joe,
    I think that the proton transmute to neutron in a fraction of second after crossing the plane of the orbit of the elecron, because:

    1- Beyond the Coulomb force Fz acting in the helical trajectory shown in the figure, there is also a magnetic force Fm due to the attraction between the magnetic field of the proton and the magnetic field of the electron’s orbit.
    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png

    2- Therefore the compoment accelerating the proton is Fz + Fm.

    3- The component Ft trying to increse the radius of the helical trajectory is never stronger than Fz + Fm before the proton to hit the plane of the orbit.

    4- In the instant when the proton crosses the plane of the orbit Ft is maximum, and Fz= 0.

    5- When the proton crosses the plane, Fz and Fm change their direction, and so the force trying to increase the radius of the helical trajectory is Fz + Fm + Ft. In this instant the proton captures a pair positron-electron from the aether, and it becomes a neutron emitting a positron.

    In your reply to me I think you meant 2s1 instead of 1s1.How can an electron electrosphere(in the eV range)accelerate the neutron up to 14 MeV?
    ————————————————————–

    Eernie,
    I would like to calculate the energy of the proton when it crosses the plane of the orbit of the electron.
    However the calculation is very complex, because:

    1- The attraction force on the proton increases proportional to the inverse of the square of the distance.
    So, as the proton progresses, the force on it increases quickly.

    2- With the acceleration of the proton, the magnetic field induced by the motion of the proton increases with the growth of its speed. And therefore the attraction force between the magnetic field of the proton and the magnetic field of the electron orbit also increases.

    .

    Therefore the kinetic energy of the proton grows quickly and strongly, and when the proton crosses the orbit of the electron its kinetic energy had a very big increase.

    Wladimir,

    A decrease in radius could be expected in the absence of the Coulomb interaction. But since this interaction exists and would be trying to increase the radius of the helical trajectory, what law of Nature are you using to explain how the Coulomb interaction can be countered?
    ————————————————————-

    Joe,
    the attraction force between the proton and the electron is shown in the figure, where it is decomposed in two components Fz and Ft:

    http://peswiki.com/index.php/Image:Acceleration_on_the_proton_by_electron_orbit_in_Rossi-Effect.png

    The component Fz accelerates the proton, and therefore the action of Fz decreases the radius orbit of the helical trajectory of the proton.

    The component Ft tries to increase the radius of the helical trajectory.

    As Fz is very larger than Ft when the proton is far away of the plane of the electron’s orbit, then Ft is not able to increase the radius of the helical trajectory.

    The distance between the nucleus 3Li7 and the plane of the orbit is about 10^-11m.
    Consider that the radius of the electron’s orbit is 0,5×10-10m (20 times shorter than the distance 10^-11m). In this case the proton will move 95% of its trajectory with the condition Fz > Ft.

    But when the proton arrives to a position near to the plane of the orbit, the condition is Ft = Fz (the proton already has travelled 95% of its displacement).
    And when the proton crosses this point where Ft = Fz, the force Ft becomes stronger, and finally the proton decays in a neutron.

    Eernie,
    the proton and the neutron are not accelerated by the energy of the electron orbit, they actually are accelerated by the magnetic field produced by the orbit.

    The proton moves along the distance between the nucleus and the orbit, in the order of 10^-11m, which is a very big distance ( 10.000 times larger than the radius of the nucleus )

    —————————————-

    Eernie,
    as I already had explained with the help of many figures, when two nuclei align their magnetic fields along the z-axis direction, the outter electron orbit is shared by the electrosphere of the two nuclei, and so the orbit takes the position perpendicular to the z-axis.

    In the case Pd-D2, the orbit 1s1 takes the position perpendicular to the z-axis, and so we have:

    1- Firstly the proton has a big acceleration due to its attraction with the orbit 1s1

    2- After the proton transmutation to neutron, the neutron is accelerated due to its repulsion with the orbit 1s1.

    I had shown it to Joe, in the case of Ni-3Li7:

    In your model, as the proton approaches the plane of rotation, does the radius of its helical trajectory increase, decrease, or remain constant?
    ————————————————–

    Joe,
    when a particle is accelerated, the radius of the HT decreases (tends to zero when the velocity aproach to the velocity of light).

    when a paritcle is disaccelerated, the radius of the HT increases (tends to infinite when the velocity tends to zero).

    Therefore as the proton approaches the plane of rotation the radius of its helical trajectory decreases.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    In next years we will have:
    A) Free (or near free) energy (e-cat and other competitors)
    B) Artificial Intelligence
    The combination of A) and B) will give always more services and goods with always less human work.
    We have to resign to the idea that work will be limited to only a small percentage of “work-addicted” people.
    The real challenge will be to invent new ways to distribute services and goods to everyone on the earth according to their needs.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    to have a job for earning money is very important for the majority of man. But from a general point of view this discussion is a little bit on the surface. What man needs is food, clothing, heat, electricity, transportation, education, information, health care and so on and so on. To generate these things in a higher amount, higher quality and with a smaller amount of costs and work is the goal of every tecnical progress and developement. An also very hard problem is, to give all people, willing to contibute, the chance to contribute and to earn money in this way for her life.
    Nevertheless,I think the developement of E-cat will bring about also large impulses for employment of many people.

    Andrea, this is a great answer to an important question. You should go and explain something yourself in Frank’s E-cat World site, where he posted another very good article titled “When Robots Replace Human Workers”. They would not listen to me. In average, people commenting the article (who are, without almost any exclusion, big fans of your achievements) are totally unaware of the relationship between work and capital/money.

    They sincerely think various incredible fantasies like this: every future, single, independent worker will free himself from current wage system buying a robot and putting it to work, and he is compensated for it: “People don’t have to have economic value. All they need is credit. If someone has no money, he takes out a loan, just like he is a student. Instead of investing the money in a diploma for which there is no market, he buys robots that stand in a factory somewhere. The robots earn an income, and the income goes to the owner’s bank account. The only limiting factor will be the demand for robots and the products they manufacture.”

    Thank you for this important question. The mass production of E-Cats will generate a miscellanea of jobs: blue collars, white collars, chemical engineers, physicists, infomatics, electronic engineers…industrial E-Cats are very complex machines, demanding many integrated disciplines; I hope this work of us will be a game changer in the employment sector. I really hope that we will be able to create jobs in massive measure, directly and indirectly. I have been born as an enterpreneur, and the essence of enterpreneurship is to create jobs. Unfortunately in our present times money is made principally by means of financial speculations and it is not good, because this kind of richness is made without producing things with real value; real value can be conferred only by the work incorporated in it. In this sense we hope to help the game changing. Industry and production of real things redistributes welfare and make shared richness, while financial speculation concentrates richness in few parasitic organizations without making jobs and therefore without sharing richness. Financial speculation is the real liability of contemporary economy; is made by persons that want to earn money without producing anything useful, just making money with money, so that the money loses its original nature, which is the incorporation of work. Banks are using money to make more money in more or less borderline speculations, instead of financing the industries properly.To return to the sound economy based on the production of real things we must invent products worth to be made; the E-Cat, if it works well, can help. In the meantime the law should forbid ( really) to the banks to act as financial speculators, using the money to speculate instead of financing really productive activities that create jobs and produce shared welfare.

    No, Joe.
    There are two orbits:

    1- The orbit of the electron 2s1. Let’s call its radius Re

    2- The orbit of the helical trajectory of the proton. Let’s call it Rp.

    The rotation of the electron 2s1 in the orbit with radius Re changes the radius Rp of the helical trajectory of the proton, from Rp to Rc. (“c” of change, and not of charge).

    The orbit of 2s1 changes the radius Rp because there is Coulomb attraction between the electron and the proton.
    While the proton is trying to keep its trajectory along the z-axis, the centripetal force of the electron (transmited via Coulomb attraction) tries to open the helical trajectory of the proton, by increasing the radius Rp.
    But as the proton moves is moving with acceleration, its radius Rp actually has tendency to decrease, and not to increase.

    You cannot get 1T3+1D2 = 2He4+n(14.1MeV) directly by cold fusion.

    In Mosier-Boss cold fusion, there is a sandwich Pd-D2-T3

    We have:
    1- The neutron of D2 exits the D2 with 2,2MeV and it is captured by T3. The neutron decays, and T3 transmutes to 2He4.
    2- The proton exits the D2 with 2.2MeV and it is pulled by the orbit 1s1, moving with acceleration toward the 1s1 orbit. When it is crossing the orbit 1s1, the proton transmutes to a neutron, and the neutron is pushed by the orbit 1s1 with acceleration toward the Pd nucleus, getting energy up to 14MeV before to hit the Pd nucleus.

    I see no down side for e-cat if oil prices continue to fall.I believe the cost of oil is primarilly controlled by OPEC.They have desided to not reduce their oil out put to the world market even though North America and other countries are producing more of their on oil which also furnishs the world oil.Opecs stratigy, I believe , is to allow the world market supply to continue to exceed the market demand for oil and drive the prices lower to the point where it is no longer profitable for the north American continent and other regions in the world to pump it out of the ground.Once it reachs this price and is sustain for some time, oil prices will again come up.Once e-cat is introduced into the market and is proven to be a reliable, clean and cheap energy alternative to oil, the oil prices will decline to the point where its supply will equel its demand which will continually drop. I believe the e-cat will remain much cheaper than oil to produce energy and the e-cat will control the oil prices and not the oil prices control the e- cat. Is this not what all this is about?

    OPEC does this over and over.
    They try to do as much damage as possible to:

    Natural gas production, they already have enough tree huggers claiming dirty water, earthquakes, etc.

    Alternative Energy, Wind, Solar, etc.

    Fuel made from waste, wood, etc.

    After they do as much damage as possible the price will go back up.

    You have to remember God made the Oil.
    All they have to do is pump it out of the Well for thirty years, at very little cost.
    SOMEDAY E-Cat will make them happy to sell their oil for $10 a barrel, and make a nice profit.

    I too believe that the fall in oil prices has nothing to do with the recent developments of LENR on the media. Rather it has to do with the global recession, with new climate change policies, with the price war (the Arabs could plan to make non-competitive the american shale) and with speculation. Oil traders are among the most informed people in the world about everything that happens in the world, in any sector can influence prices. Look at these sites, for example:

    In the price of hydrocarbons should be also calculated the cost of global warming,but it is very difficoult because it is a factor in future which we don’t know the amount.

    You imagine that the proton loses its electric field by becoming a neutron in order to avoid this “disturbance”.
    —————————————————————————

    Joe,
    let us speak about what the proton enjoys.

    We know from the Newton’s laws that Nature does not appreciate changes:
    1- If a body is at rest, it continues at rest, unless a force is applied on it
    2- If a body movies with constant linear velocity, it continues moving with constant velocity unless a force is applied on it

    A particle moves with helical trajectory (zitterbewegung).
    When the particle is near to be at rest regarding the aether, the radius of its helical trajectory tends to infinitum.
    When the velocity of the particle is near to the speed of light, the radius of its helical trajectory tends to zero

    When a particle is being accelerated (as happens with the proton in the LHC), the radius of its helical trajectory is changing (decreasing).

    Consider the proton being accelerated in the LHC.
    The Nature does not appreciate changes. Therefore, the Nature tries to avoid the change in the radius of the helical trajectory , and (in order to avoid that “disturbance” due to the change in the radius of the helical trajectory) the zitterbewegung of the proton extracts particles of the aether, and emits them in the form of photons (Maxwell’s law).

    In the Rossi-Effect, the proton is accelerated by the orbit of the electron 2s1, and therefore the proton is extracting particles from the aether, and it emits them as photons, in order to avoid the “disturbance” in the radius of its helical trajectory.

    To each absolute velocity of the proton in the aether correspond a specific radius of the helical trajectory.

    Then a second disturbance appears, when the proton is near to cross the plane of the 2s1 orbit: the electron tries to change the radius of the helical trajectory of the proton.
    We have:

    1- in a determined instant “t” the proton has a determined instantaneous velocity V and a radius R of the helical trajectory.

    2- But the action of the electron 2s1 changes the radius R, and now the orbit has a new radius Rc. However, with that instantaneous velocity V the proton cannot have another different radius. With the velocity V the radius must be kept as R.

    3- That discrepancy between the instantaneous velocity V and the new radius Rc requires an extraction of an electron from the aether, so that to transform the proton in a neutron

    Wlad,
    In the Mosier-Boss reaction, have you forgotten about the energy used to cause the fusion of the deuterons or the mass change which can be translated as energy that must be accounted for? More than enough to create the energetic particles. the contribution of the strong force is just a part of the overall energy balance.
    I think the 2s1 electron must be more energized so it can sling shot the neutron past the influence of the 2px electron much like the influence of gravity on the space vehicles as they pass a massive body.

    I agree with Andrea Rossi and Robert Cuerto. The fall in the price of oil has nothing to do with ECat. I wish it did. It has more to do with world politics and international economic trends.

    But I’m concerned about the fall in the price of oil, since it makes the ECat less competitive in different ways. If this is a problem depends on how far the price will fall, and for how long it will stay low.
