    Dear Andrea,

    This is why humanity needs home e-Cats so badly: How a solar storm two years ago nearly caused a catastrophe on Earth.

    Best wishes and keep up with good work with ending the “Fossil Fuels Age”!

    Italo R.:
    Yes, you are absolutely right. The People of the E-Cat are extremely important . It maintains us constantly under a positive pressure. I am very disappointed not to be able to give information about the TIP-R2, of which I know nothing, and also for the 1 MW plant, about which we will give information only after a period of consolidation of the operation. That’s why now we talk of the rumors of Harley Davidsons. By the way, I read that many fans of this motorcycles are angry about the electric Harley, since its characteristic noise is an iconic heritage of these ouvres d’art. Anyway, it will not take long before we will have to talk about specific things.

    Dear Andrea,

    So do you feel that if you were to step away from your work now (I do not expect this), that the team at IH would be able to continue along developing E-Cat technology very well without you?

    Many thanks,

    Harley Davidson is now testing a prototype electric powered motorcycle. Perhaps, in the future, an eCat powered motorcycle? So many possible eCat applications and so little time to think of them all.

  17. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding the first public 1 MW plant. As you have designed, built and tested it, do you now see ways it can be improved? Can the masterpiece be surpassed by an even better masterpiece?

    The work of the Third Independent Party does not depend on me, as I wrote repeatedly. I must ask that the discussions about the report are put on hold until it will be published.

    We find the work of our competitors to be anyway respectable and noteworthy.
    LENR as a field is rapidly pursuing cleaner and more affordable sources of energy. Making the world a better place through cleaner and more affordable energy is why we are working so hard with our R&D testing.
    This is a good thing and would be of great benefit to Society.

    Curwin,

    If eCat can use 3He AND it is economical to mine it on the moon, it would be less costly to use it rather than transporting hydrogen from the Earth. Probably hydrogen will be transported to the moon but for water unless vast quantities can be found during mining.

  28. curwin

    Steven N Karels:

    Even with the *astronomical cost of space launches, there seems to be enough energy in a kilo of H/D/Ni (or whatever) to perhaps make 3He a moot question?

  29. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you, anyway interesting as an idea. Obviously I cannot give information, in positive, or in negative, regarding the materials I use or do not use in the reactor, even if projected in the future.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  30. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Helium-3 is readily available on the Moon’s regolith. It is also commercially available, albeit rather expensive. If you could obtain a sufficient quantity, you could test it. If it proves successful, you could then patent the process. That might serve you well but, of course, patents are limited in time and we do not know when a lunar colony will be viable. Use of lunar 3He would be much more economical than transporting hydrogen to the moon.

    There was conjecture that 3He might be the fusion fuel in the near future, be mined on the moon and transported to the Earth. If eCat is successful with nickel and ordinary hydrogen, there will be no need for lunar mining for Earth’s fuel needs.

    Honestly, I am not able to answer. Being an experimentalist, I will answer you when I will go to the moon, try it with a series of tests and I will satellite you the results, positive or negative as they might be.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  33. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Looking to the future – do you think eCat technology could be employed on the Earth’s moon, but using 3He instead of 1H? Please let me know if the result could be positive or negative (LOL)

  38. Just a funny question (the rest is either positive or negative).

    Do you plan to build a tea kettle ? (even if it boils 10 tons of lyophilized tea)

    It seems that from old expert of Los Alamos I heard of, only a tea kettle can make them change their position.

    Scientific papers seems to have no value for most scientists. (experimental observation).

  39. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The analysis I presented was regarding what would happen if the world population increased to 10 billion AND the per capita energy consumption of everyone reached the current USA level. Other than solar or hydro, energy production uses the energy stored within the fuel (nuclear, coal, natural gas or eCat). Since eCat emits no greenhouse gases nor dangerous residuals as in nuclear power generation, eCat could replace most other fuel-based systems without adversely affecting the Earth.

    Dear Mr. Rossi, as there is very little info coming, could you confirm that you prefer British tea to American coffee.
    I hope that is not covered by a NDA.

    Too Much Heat?

    If the world switched to eCat technology for all of its energy needs, would the planet become too warm?

    Assumptions:

    1. ECat technology used to generate electricity for all forms of energy produced (heating, cars, electrical).
    2. World population of 10 billion (10,000,000,000) people
    3. All people consume at the USA per capita level.
    4. Effective conversion efficiency is 30% (Carnot of 45% plus COP of 6)
    5. If the total man-made energy release is less than 1% of the solar insolation, then no excessive heating should be observed

    Given:
    1. The total solar energy absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere, oceans and land masses is approximately 3,850,000 exajoules (EJ) per year or 3.85 * 10^^24 Joules
    2. USA per capita energy consumption per year = 300 GJ or 3 * 10^^11 J per year per person (USA)

    Computation:
    1.0 * 10^^10 people * 3 * 10^^9 J/(year – person) = 3 * 10^^19 J per year
    Accounting for a 30% efficiency means the amount of heat released per year is 1.0 * 10^^20 J

    Therefore, since the amount of energy released, (with everyone on the planet consuming as much energy as the average American), the net increase is less than 1% of 1% of the solar insolation and excess heating should not be a problem. This, without the release of greenhouse gases.

    Hi Andrea:

    I predict that, while the original design (your ‘Bologna model’) had many E-cat units set up ‘in parallel’, the design of the newest industrial model has multiple E-cat modules set up ‘in series’, with the coolant temperature rising step by step as it passes each unit.

    As an economist I enjoy predicting things. Of course my predictions are not always correct!

    Hi Andrea,
    As a mother of two little kids, I must reprimand you for constantly saying results will be positive or negative. It is like showing a kid a candy wrapper. When the kid gets interested, you say candy may or may not be in there. I believe you must be a grandfather. It is not very grandfatherly for you to be teasing your followers :-)

    Regards and Good Luck,
    Lata

  48. Andrea Rossi

    Lata:
    I am sorry for your feeling, but I am not playing with candies. For what concerns the Third Independent Party report, there is nothing I can do but waiting the publication, which does not depend on me and I cannot have more information. Regarding the 1 MW plant, we cannot give any specific information before we are allowed to publish the data of its operations. We cannot risk to give data that eventually could become substantially different. Imagine you have candies you do not know what are they made with and you have to say to your children “I cannot give you these candies until I am not sure they are positive for you”.
    Thank you for your kind attention,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Reading between lines, it seems to me that the 1MW plant 001 is an evolution from the bologna container, while the TIP report is about the hot-cat cylinder module.
    This could explain why the positive or negative results of the last has no direct relation with the results of the first…
    My idea is that the goal of the last is to study the “rossi effect” by itself, while the object of the first is the industrial application of the effect…
    To make an automotive metafora: can we say hot-cat is like a “formula 1″ car while 1MW plant is like a “rally” car?

  50. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Of course. As I said, photos and data will be published when the visits will be allowed.

    We will publish, from now on, only results of plants in operation. The Third Independent Report will be the last report published regarding an experiment on the current E-Cat or Hot Cat, , at least until we will not introduce significant modifications. We cannot give any further information about our plants until the opening of visits to our industrial plant in operation. About the TIP Report: it is not “so long delayed”, it is running through the normal reviewing period of any important scientific publication. There is no doubt that the results will be important, positive or negative as they might be.

    The 1 MW plant that you are making now is still a remake of the one we saw in the 2012 test of Bologna?
    Thank you,

  71. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone:
    I can say this: the 1 MW plant we are working upon has been manufactured in the USA, in the factory of Industrial Heat. It is substantially different from the one we made the test of in Bologna, because during these 2 years I did not sleep too much and because I am working with a top class Team.

    Andrea Rossi,

    Today, I received a paper from Drs. Fred Mayer and John Reitz which discusses Compton Composite Particles (i.e. Tresinos) in the early Universe. The message below is self-explanatory, but I am saddened that one of papers’ co-authors is no longer with us. The paper discusses their cosmological theories and the topic of dark matter. This subject may be of interest to astrophysicists, but may also be of interest to many others.

    Composite Regards,

    Joseph Fine

    //////

    Dear Colleagues,
    It is my pleasure to forward our new (open source) paper “Compton Composites Late in the Early Universe” to you. Unfortunately, it is also a sad moment because my mentor, colleague, and co-author, John Reitz, passed away just a few days before our paper was to appear.

    Sorry, another question I forgot to ask for an answer: is it true that in the CERN accelerator protons speed makes them become smaller?
    Again, thank you,
    W.G.

  85. Andrea Rossi

    Curiosone,
    Here are the answers to both comments of yours.
    Protons and neutrons are both made by 3 quarks; a proton is made by 2 UP quarks, each with an electric charge of +2/3 and a DOWN quark, with a charge of -1/3, so that the resulting charge is +1;
    neutrons are made by 2 DOWN and 1 UP, so that the resulting charge is 0.
    These quarks that make up the protons and the neutrons are called the “valence quarks”. The valence quarks are sorrounded by means of virtual particles, which are gluons, quark-antiquark pairs, so that the rest mass of protons and neutrons is much higher than the bare sum of the rest mass of the valence quarks. While the virtual particles around the valence quarks are in permanent revolution to make glad my friend Orsobubu, the number of the valence quarks remains fixed, so that if you add the total # of quark inside a proton, UP are always 2 more than the antiUP while likewise the # of DOWN is always 1 more than antiDOWN; in neutrons, DOWN are always 2 more than antiDOWN, UP are always 1 more than antiUP.
    Richard Feynmann named all these particles PARTONS.
    When protons ride around the Large Hadron Collider of CERN they reach a speed very close to the speed of the light; this fact, along the laws of the Relativity, make them become thinner: imagine a ball that becomes a subtle disk.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  86. Curiosone

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Another question of Physics, if you have time: of what are made protons and neutrons? I know, they are made by quarks, but can you explain some more ?
    Thank you for your patience,
    W.G.

    Daniel De Caluwè:
    If a LENR system works, it does not need public funding. If anything that works well needs funding, money arrives from investors. Think to Microsoft, Apple, etc. There are things that need public funding because they are important but do not produce profit, or the perspective of profits are too much distant in time to make them appealing for capital investments; in those cases is necessary that governments make funding: for example CERN, the conquer of Space, things like these. But it is not the case of LENR.
    This is my opinion, obviously it can be wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  88. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear dr. Rossi,

    Regarding the discussion about public or private funding of LENR, I can image that, in your case, you got a lot of dishonnest competition from wannebee competitors that are payed by taxpayer money (public funding), or by people who don’t play it very honestly, and was that the reason why, in your answer to Lande (who gave examples of the necessity of public funding in other fields), you wrote that LENR is a totally different thing.

    But why? I personally strongly believe that we, the people of the world (and we’re already with 7 billion on this globe, and we will be with 10 billion in 2050 or so), need very much LENR, because, (although there still are sceptics, especially in the United States), I studied very deeply the present climate change, and I know there is a problem (mainly caused by human activities), and also I know our nuclear power industry and its plants very well, and I know we need a better solution. So, as the present technologies are not good enough and could bring us in danger on the longer term (as well fossil fuels as present nuclear industry), do you agree that there should be (and probably will be an increasing) intrest and even demand from the public, maybe already in the near future? I personally think this will legitimate public funding, for the simple reason that the world needs it.

    Dear Andrea,

    If the scientists performing the third party report figure out how the E-Cat works on their own – perhaps confirming by replicating the E-Cat – would you allow them to publish the details?

    Dear mr Rossi,

    regarding your statement
    “I am totally contrary to public funding of LENR. It is a high risk field, that must be funded by enterpreneurs, not by taxpayers. Taxpayers must not be exposed to industrial risks.”

    I believe we have many industrial fields that started with public scientific research funding and which later was beneficial for humand kind. Like the Space and Moon race in the 1950′s and 60′s. Or the public funded research of Nuclear power for peaceful use, which have given us the Nuclear Power industry. So I don’t think it’s necessary a bad thing for the Public to fund high risk ventures, when the possible reward for the society are very high.

    And I may add that Public actually are exposed to industrial risks every day from the present Nuclear power plants, which have only limited liability against major Nuclear accidents….

    regards
    Lande

    Yes, the cases you cited are right, but LENR are a totally different thing.

    Dear Andrea Rossi, you wrote:

    “Yes, I agree about public funding of basic and foundamental research: without it the CERN could not exist. But the case of LENR is totally different.”

    Maybe when the second independent third party report is published it will not be totally different?

    Dear Andrea,

    Would you consider the installation of the initial 1MW plant the start of mass production?

    Best wishes,

    Sorry,but I am not a keinesians,my thinking is more close to Jean Baptiste Say’s thinking.
    Maybe I did not explain well my ideas.
    I think that humanity evolution mast go on and it happens through natural laws. We are the product of nature and the human system is a natural system. Included freedom of choice.
    I think that Thecnology is the first way for our evolution and revolution,givin us more time for loving,thinking and everything is aligned with ours desires and attitudes. In a word, freedom.

    Perhaps you could agree at least about public funding of basic, fundamental research; this is widespread policy also in United States. This way, the capitalistic state can boost the national competitivity in global markets, employ and specialize large masses of workers and at the same time replace the capitalists when they cannot risk big capitals in long term programs. Then, when there are some results, capitalists can take advantage of this generous public help, exploit the discoveries and bring them to market and make the bucks. Obviously, I’m not a keynesian, so I don’t agree either, but this is a common political economy that gave impressive results in the past. Mr Guerrini asks you to turn keynesian, but I know that we’re for the revolution and will resist the temptation.

    For to explain the theory behind its operation is necessary the start of the mass production.
