    In your mind’ s eye, in the future, at what point in time will e cat and his cousins out produce heat and electricity being consumed in the world ? About the equlidrium point of their joined production: do you believe coal will be replaced before solar and nuclear? Thank you again for your great and hard work,
    John Atkinson

  2. Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    The industrial plants are entered slowly in production, as for the domestic we are working on the tech and the certification issues. About the other energy sources, as I always said, they will be all integrated at the service of mankind. About coal: the E-Cat is fit to be integrated with it.

    Tom Conover’s Multiple Reactor Meltdowns (Hank Mills)

    The following article has been submitted by Hank Mills

    Another individual has emerged who seems to be producing anomalous heat while utilizing combinations of fuel similar to that used in Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat. Tom Conover has reported performing close to two hundred test runs utilizing nickel powder, lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4), and sometimes other lithium compounds. Although he has not claimed to produce quantifiable excess heat over any significant period of time, he has witnessed dramatic surges in temperature that have repeatedly destroyed his reactors.

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems like you are focusing your efforts on getting the plant to behave by itself without the constant need of human supervision and intervention.
    Without this your 1MW would not be cost effective.

    1) What areas of expertise are you mostly making use of to solve this problem? Plumbers, electricians, electronics, computer programming, etc?

    2) Also, a typical 1000MW Natural Gas power station is manned by about 30 employees. Does it make sense to operate multiple of your 1MW plants from the same location and sell power to the grid, to reduce the manning costs?

    Best regards,
    Patrick

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    1) All of them
    2) This is a very intelligent consideration. Makes sense.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Today in Ancona, Italy, they are talking at University level, about LENR: exactly as you said, after your immense work LENR are discussed about seriously in places where before you they were not considered at all. This is a strong legacy of your efforts, beyond any doubt.

  9. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you tell us at what stage the work with manufacturing the 1MW plants is?

    I know you said you had to redesign the plants based on the experience with the 1MW plant used in the year long test. Have you tested the new design yet, and if so, how has it performed compared to the pilot?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  10. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The construction is going on. The difficulty and the improvement are generated from the necessity to make a subject that does not need Andrea Rossi inside 16- 18 hours per day, and the engineer and the technician of IH for 8 hours per day. We need a subject able to work alone, with nobody, but a certified operator that has to check tha gauges now and again.
    To write this is easy, to imagine that it is not simple is easy too, but to understand really the difficulties is impossible for anybody that has not lived with the plant, inside the plant, for one year of his own life, attending and listening to the plant with his body inside it. The problems we had during the year have been multiple, have been resolved by our great team because we were there immediately when something was gone wrong.
    Now the E-Cat must be able to work alone.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Rossi,
    You are under very strong pressure, for the litigation from one side and the tests and your enterpreneurial engagements from the other: are you under regular clinical control ? How is your health in this period ? I saw worrying photos recently.
    God bless you,

    Dear Andrea,

    For the wafer type Ecat utilising a boiler to encompass a slot and be used at higher pressures, it would have to be stayed similar to a conventional steam engine firebox, this would be complex and expensive to produce.

    As a higher pressure alternative to the enclosing boiler with the slot entry, it may be possible to use two conventional dimple jacket panels, flat faces towards each other with enclosure plates on three sides to form a non-pressurised open slot, this assembly would be positioned with the slot vertically on the side, the slot gap would be dimensioned to provide a close side fitting Ecat wafer for good heat transfer, but still easily installed and removed on recharging.

    Alternatively the gap between faces to be adjustable to accommodate wafer thickness tolerance variation or faces adjustable to open then close to clamp against the wafer surfaces on installation / recharge, both versions providing a smaller air gap and better heat transfer, flexible pipe connections required in both cases.

    Each dimple jacket could have controlled amounts of water injected internally through single or multiple connections in the lower edge, with heat from the Ecat wafer then turning it into steam, the steam then extracted from a single connection on the upper edge.

    Depending on design, dimple jackets can be produced for up to 20 barg / 300 psig = 215 deg C steam, or possibly higher, all depending on material of construction / tensile values at temperature / design code, against trade-offs on plate thickness for heat transfer and the various heat transfer coefficients.

    Dear Andrea,
    It seems that Li-air (LiO2) batteries development have made some progress. It may be possible that within a few years electric cars can run on one charge as far as patrol cars on one tank of petrol, having a similar energy content per litre and per kg:
    http://phys.org/news/2016-07-lithium-oxygen-battery-greatly-energy-efficiency.html
    Do you think this type of development is a compatitor of the QuarkX or will it be an addition or even lead to a symbiosis with the QuarkX?
    Thank you for giving your insights.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Andrea,

    The size of the ever expanding universe is defined by the speed of light times the age of the universe. Nothing can exist out side that diameter. Everything inside this diameter is subject to the curved time-space of the gravitational fields of all matter created by the big bang. Gravity is accumulative, so there can never be true “zero gravity” in the expanding universe and thus there can never be flat time-space in the expanding universe. Since nothing can occupy flat time-space and no state can change in flat time-space, what is the meaning of time and space within flat time-space?

    Andrea,

    It comes down to the question:

    Does curved space-time create gravity or does gravity create space-time?

    The gravity wave caused by the big bang is also traveling at the speed of light.

    It would be interesting to note whether the first photons of the big bang occurred before or after the gravity wave.

    V/R,

    Paul

  34. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    The issue is that, by the General Relativity, gravity is curved space- time: this having been accepted, it is like to ask if it has been born first the egg or the hen.
    Warm Regards,

    Hello mr. Rossi,
    I am since many many years following the Information about LENR, I would like to ask you if it’s possible to tell when the E-Cat will come to Germany?

    btw: can you tell me what’s your opinion about Victor Klimovs research about nanocrystalline effects/solar cells?

  37. Judy

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I do not understand why you are receiving so many complaints about the fact that the E- Cat is not yet massively diffused: they do not understand the enormous importance of what you made with the 1 year test of the 1 WW E-Cat and the start of the production of the industrial plants. You made history.
    Thank you for your hard work, that’s what you merit to hear.
    Cheers,

    Andrea,

    The light that was generated by the first moments of the Big Bang is currently traveling through a space void of matter or energy. What does velocity mean when there is nothing to measure it against?

    V/R,

    Paul

  40. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    That’s Phylosophy, not Physics. In Physics ( General Relativity ) c in the vacuum is a constant independently from whatever is or is not there. Besides, nobody knows if there is or there is not “something” and here is anyway something to refer the speed to: the time during which the distance of the “FOSSIL” photons from us increases.
    Beyond this point, the discussion becomes phylosophycal.
    Warm Regards,

  50. 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

  51. Andrea Rossi

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

    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

  56. 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

  57. 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.

  58. 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

  59. 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.

    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”.

  70. 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

  71. Andrea Rossi

    Ioannis:
    I have nothing to add to what I said: for me your position is foundamentally wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  72. 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

    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

  75. 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,

  76. 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 ?

  77. 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.

  78. 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

  79. 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
    Warm Regards

    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.

  93. 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.

  102. 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

    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?
    If yes, it has been gradually or one or few steps and, you can consider this changes marginal or important.

  108. 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.

    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

    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

  137. 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.

  138. Hank Mills

    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.

    Hank

  147. Andrea Rossi

    These are constructive particulars I am not going to talk about here, for obvious reasons, because they would generate a cascade of questions leading to confidential information.

    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?

    Thank you,

    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

    No, because there are interspaces connected.

    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 Dr Andrea Rossi:
    As you explained, IH received every three months a quarterly report from the ERV and all the reports had moreless the same results, from the first to the fourth.
    You said that IH accepted deiighted the first, the second and the third reports, respectively after three, six and nine months after the start of the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat and collected many millions from their investors thanks to such reports.
    The question is: did IH pay the first, second and third report of the ERV ?
    Thank you id you can answer,

    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.

    Sincerely,

    Dan Galburt

    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,
    Brokeeper (or Rob)

    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.

  182. 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.

  185. 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.

  186. Hal Roth

    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,
    Hal

  187. Janne

    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

  188. 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.

    @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?

  198. 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

    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.

    Maximum Use Temperature (no load) 1750° C

    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.

    Andrea Rossi, Professor U.V.S. Seshavatharam, Professor S. Lakshminarayana

    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,

    Joseph Fine

    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:

  209. 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?

  210. 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.

    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 ?

    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

  220. Andrea Rossi

    Matthias:
    Yes, it is true.
    Warm Regards,

  238. 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

  239. 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.

  246. 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

  247. 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.
