    Good day Mr. Rossi

    Me and my affiliates are wondering, if You are healthy

    Best whishes

  5. Andrea Rossi

    Dr R. Nicholson:
    I am perfectly healthy and I am working hard on the Ecat SKL.
    Thank you for your concern,

  6. Prof

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think that the corona virus anomalies respect the normal flu viruses can be caused by the global warming and other environmental damages caused by human activity, as somebody is supposing ?

  7. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    I am not able to answer.

  8. Mark U

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for sharing some of the history of your Ecat progression. I can understand that your first production of excess energy in March of 1999 in Manchester, New Hampshire was especially emotional. The first kiss is not forgotten, nor the details around the birth of one’s first child. Also, fittingly, March 1999 would have been the ten year anniversary of the announcement by Drs. Pons and Fleischmann.

    Thank you again for your perseverance and inspiration and perspiration in the quest for clean energy!
    Cheers from Canada

    My guess for the EcatSKL properties at the upcoming demo:

    Total power out: 175W
    Electrical conversion efficiency: 80%
    Electrical power out: 175W * .8 = 140W
    Dimension: Cube with side length of 8 cm
    Mass: 400 grams, including wafer charge.
    Colour: blue
    Electrical power in, when required: 10W.

    output: 160 W
    conv. efficiency : 71%
    dimension :98 x 98 x 98 mm
    weight : 480 g.
    Good luck to you and to me :-)

  14. Sven B

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Several times you confirmed that you were
    preparing to use ABB robots in the manufacturing of E-Cat modules.
    1. Is this still the plan?
    2. If Yes, did you already test to make an E-Cat SKL module with the help of a robot?

    Kind Regards
    Sven B

  15. Andrea Rossi

    Sven B:
    1 yes
    2 no

    Dear Readers. Lets make a brief scientific analysis of ECat SKL cube. In comparison with well known previous thermal ECats versions (thanks Andrea later repeated in many countries), novel device produced also electricity. We don’t know much about its prototype ECat SK, only about its very small dimensions (like tube) and 100W produced electricity (if my memory doesn’t
    fail me). Therefore, Andrea Rossi with his team moved away from his standard scheme of obtaining energy with AlLiH -Ni powder fuel.
    Novel design can be implemented using Shoulders and others electromagnetic effects. This device is not need large sizes as the main part is the electrical contacts between which plasma is created and external winding for removing electricity. Plasma itself has low heat capacity in comparison with AlLiH Ni fuel and cooling system can be minimized. Moreover, generated photons can be focused by mirrows and send to solar battery for obtaining additional electricity.
    Of course, the excess of energy that partly transforms to electricity needs hydrogen in the system, saturated in Ni or in other way inside the system. Better to use nanostructured Ni as electrodes.
    All these parts should be inside sealed container to avoid hydrogen to escape.
    In general it is the main parts in the box since electric converter may be placed in the control block cigarette pack.
    As usual control system is one third of the main part (dimentions).
    Much electricity production needs more complicated cooling system, for example Rank tube, so the electricity power is not large (100_200W) as well as conversion efficiency ( not more than in electric power statioms) as it is thefirst step of developments.
    The cube or similar form is not heavy.
    That is all fot the first approximation.
    I believe my fantasy will give Rossi team a reason for humor
    In a few days I will give additional information on improving this design using my rich imagination. I hope I haven’t confused you all.
    Best regards and good luck.

  17. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi
    Small positive remark in these difficult times: Air pollution fell sharply in cities. This is a very good sign for our future with cars powered by an E-Cat SKL and houses without chimneys.
    Can you specify if you can accommodate several SKL reactors in the 10 cm cube side?
    Good health to you, your team and your supporters.
    Best regards
    Raffaele

  18. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    No, it is not possible to insert more than one Ecat SKL in that volume.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  19. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the E-Cat SKL electrical output voltage determined by design, i.e. a specific voltage can be chosen, or is the output voltage determined by the function of the charge energy to electrical output extraction mechanism?

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson

  20. Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    The voltage can be adjusted making it fit for the necessity of the Client
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  21. E. Hergen

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    you said, that your team is still testing different configuations of the e-cat skl. Do you already have a configuration, which is “good enough” for commercialisation?

    Kind regards,

    E.Hergen

  22. Andrea Rossi

    E. Hergen:
    I think so.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  23. Mason

    Dear Andrea,

    this is a simple wish to you, your team, the team of the testing agency, as well as all the clients who have their own team members present:

    Stay well, be healthy.

    Respectfully,
    Mason

    ps. My guess:

    – Electrical Power Output: 1 kiloWatt
    – Conversion Efficiency: 85%
    – Dimensions: 90x90x90 mm
    – Unit weight (excluding the control unit): 95 grams

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Mason:
    Thank you for your kind wishes.
    Taken notice of your data,
    Warm Regards,

  25. Chuck Davis

    Dear Andrea, Since we are into speculation, I predict that the ecat will be certified by no later than June 01, 2020!

  27. Buck

    THx for the quick reply.

    Now it is clear, how You measure netto win.

    Your conclusions of Yur measurement are based on a very common effect, which is called “Dunning Kruger Effect”.

    You can read about it.

    Regards

    Buck

  28. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    You did not understand my comments. I am talking of definition of Energy in general, not of measurements of the energy consumed and the energy generated by the Ecat ! The theoretical concept of the definition of Energy is one thing, the measurement of Wh consumed and generated by an apparatus are a totally different issue. You correctly cite the Dunning Kruger Effect, but your text gives evidence that such psychological effect is referred to you: the matter of the fact is that you really have not been able to understand what I wrote while, along the Dunning Kruger Effect, at the same time you are not able to recognize this and introject in others your different way to be intelligent.

  29. Aleksei Savchenko

    Dear Rick 57, dear Andrea,
    Thank you for opportunity to start a game (quest) especially it is very cold in Moscow country forest, where I am now living having escaped from the corona virus city carantine to feel free.
    Before starting the game some input data should be precised.
    1. First, are the ECat SKL parameters include controller (a pack of cigarettes) inserted inside or only separate arrangement?
    2. Second, ECat SKL announced in January is continiously improving. What version we are going to determine – January, current one or future will be shown at your presentation?.
    3. Third, we are all in unequal conditions as among the Readers are the members of Andrea Rossi team, Frank Acland, for example, knowing parameters of your device (may be). His questions were composed in such a way that Andrea could somehow inadvertently convey the necessary information to us.
    If he win he can make some kind of bisiness to sell to extra invitation (the first one he will recieve as a member of the team).
    In order not to freeze at my country dacha I will also take part in the competition (although I have already invitation- Andrea promised).
    4. To everybody. There are two approaches to the parameters of ECat SKL device. First one – to analyze information from Andrea Rossy blog, especially his answers to Frank Acland questions, taking into account a great sense of Andrea humour.
    The second approach scientific one – try to understand the principal of novel version. It is not dublicate the previous and I guess based on Shoulders and others electromagnetic effects with modifications using thermal Ecat expsriments. At least I will try to go this way and my decision will be in the next letter.
    I am sorry for possible grammar mistakes as I write from the phone.
    Best regards and good luck to everybody.
    Aleksei Savchenko

    Aleksei Savchenko
    The winner of this quest will be invited to the presentation, but you already have been invited, as a Russian scientist I esteem. So I see you more as a support of our Readers that participate to this quest: maybe they can ask you suggestions or help: this would be suicy !
    Obviously you are more than free to send your data, but independently from them you will be anyway invited to attend the presentation.
    Second suggestion: even if you are in a less populated countryside, please do not lower the guard: stay home ! Use all the individual protection devices and follow all the direction of the Government, don’t brave this virus: it is extremely dangerous.
    Answers:
    1. the “cigarette pack” ( the control system ) is separated
    2.the Ecat SKL is still the same, we are just continuing to change configurations of the same object, same components: the confuguration is extremely important
    3. Ha,ha,ha !
    No, the members of our Team are not participating to the quest: you have my honour word: that would be very unfair to our beloved Readers ! Frank Acland is the director of the best blog of the LENR sector, but he is not and has never been a member of our Team, besides, all the information I gave and give him is immediately published on E-Catworld, so all the Readers of the JoNP have access to the same information, just reading http://www.e-catworld.com as most of them already do.
    I envy your dacha in the countryside of Moscow: you surely can make cross country skiing there, which is my passion
    4. Very well, as I suggested, you anticipated me and already are giving good suggestions to our Readers that make this competition.
    Enjoy Easter in your winter paradise !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea. I really like reading these guesses the parameters of the Ecat SKL. You start at the beginning and read each one and by the end you can’t help smiling. Isn’t that something to treasure in these days.

    I’d be happy with almost any one of these. And if any of those is correct how amazing that will be!

    I can’t my self wager a guess. I like to guess how it could be sometimes to understand it’s potential. But in this I like to keep it in mind as a work if art as well as science and engineering that evolves and surprises us until the day it comes to view.

    However all these guesses give such hope and optimism in these days I love to read them. I really feel wonder and hope at what I see there.

  38. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    Thank you for your delighting comment: we really need smiles in this difficult period of pandemy.

  39. Buck

    Hi, Mr. Rossi.

    You said, that Your reference of measuring energy is “amount of information per unit space time”.

    Do You reference both directions ( input and output ) with the same definition of energy ?

    Regards

    Buck

    Hello Andrea!
    Am I right when I think that E-catSK at a customer from 19 november 2018 is producing heat energy for about 200000 KW-hours on about one teaspoon of powder? Unbelievable!

    Dear Andrea, fellow guessers,

    This is what I have in mind :

    Module :
    ————————————————————-
    Volume : 5cm * 5cm * 5cm = 125cm³ / module
    Power : 1 kW / module –> 8 modules / dm³ –> 8 kW/dm³
    Weight : 100g / module –> 8 modules / dm³ –> 800g/dm³
    Ee/Et ratio : 90% / 10%

    Controller :
    ————————————————————-
    90mm / 60mm / 20mm, weight 50g (approx. like a raspberry pi)
    + 200g for enclosure & interfacing HW to the module(s)

    Dear Andrea,

    Praying for your’s and your staff’s families good health through this awful pandemic.

    Since a December 15, 2015 response, it appears you have maintained a “higher economy scale” strategy with a snap-together heat/electrical output ports with a ‘LEGO’-type scheme.
    If so, has corrosion between the cube’s electrical connections over time proven to be a challenge?

    Assuming successful test results, will you have reached the final SKL version for public demonstration and initial production? Can you estimate how long that may be? Thank you.

    My SKL parameter guess:
    125 Watts
    87%
    5x5x5 cm per side
    100 grams

    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  54. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Corrosion should not be an issue
    I prefer not to set times so far.
    Data taken: thanks,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  55. Manfred

    My estimate to the Ecat SKL:
    cube length 101.6 mm
    efficiency 81%
    power 508 W
    weight 780 g
    I wish you all the best: stay healthy and thanks for the recommendations to fight the corona virus.
    If the Ecat SKL will do well, after the corona virus tragedy the world will be twice best

    Eric Ashworth,

    You posted “Drink Gin and Tonic with a slice of lemon and also Brandy. These drinks I believe helps to ward off the virus.” Since the virus is a respiratory one, I do not see how consuming alcohol will “ward off” the virus. It might make you temporarily feel better or to not care. But I doubt it has an anti-viral property. Better to maximize your immune system – by staying away from alcohol, cigarettes, etc.

  60. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    How are the tests going? Are you happy about the progress?
    About the SKL details:

    85% of the total power generated by the SKL can effectively be used as electrical output power in SSM
    Cube sizes: 10x10x10 cm
    Weight: 800 grams
    Please stay healthy, Kind regards Gerard.

  61. Andrea Rossi

  64. Rick 57

    Dear Andrea,

    I propose to all the Readers a little game to have some fun in these days we have to STAY@HOME…

    Try to guess the main E-CAT SKL parameters, that is:

    – Electrical Power Output in Watts
    – Conversion Efficiency in % (Electrical Power / Total Power)
    – Cube dimensions in millimeters
    – Unit weight in grams (excluding the control unit)

    When the true numbers will be disclosed, everybody will be able to easily calculate his score as the sum of the absolute differences between his guess and the actual value for each of the above parameters (only one attempt is allowed per Reader).

    Of course, who gets the minimum score wins! Maybe, Andrea, you could invite him to the first public product demo…

    And now, my numbers:

    Electrical Power: 283 W
    Conversion Efficiency: 78 %
    Cube Dimension: 80 mm
    Unit Weight: 475 g

    Thanks a lot for your attention and good luck !

    Riccardo

  65. Andrea Rossi

    Rick 57:
    OK, the game is on !

    Readers of the JONP, with regards the Corona virus/ Covid-19 pandemic. Go to flue virus, study Type A, Type B and Type C. This virus is a Type A flue virus, same as Spanish flue and Hong Kong flue. This Corona virus is a Chinese Type A flue. Flue vaccines are of no value with a Type A. They have to be treated as a very contagious flue that affects the respiratory system as they have occurred in the past and will continue into the future. My suggestion is the same as that of a British medical doctor that contracted the virus which is isolate one self, eat chicken soup, take paracetamol and stay in bed. Myself even though I do not have the virus I wash my hands, use alcohol to sterilize my hands, Drink Gin and Tonic with a slice of lemon and also Brandy. These drinks I believe helps to ward off the virus. As of today I feel fine. Stay safe, don’t panic it will pass as it always does. Obviously the elderly and those with a compromised immune system must take every precaution possible. Regards Eric Ashworth

  67. Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth:
    I’d refrain from suggestions not coming from the specialists, that are the physitians expert of the matter and from the directions consequently imposed or suggested by the competent Authorities.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “Nonetheless, perhaps the most emotional moment has been in 1999 in Manchester, New Hampshire, where Leonardo Corp has been born in 1996, it was March and for the first time I measured an excess of energy in the very first prototype, a very small thing, with several Watts of power.”

    Can you describe the excess heat measurement methodology for that first experiment. Did you use nickel or palladium, deuterium gas or hydrogen gas? What temperatures did you reach?

  69. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The structure of that prototype is contained in the patent of this post.

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m curious: which of your Ecat developments (hot Cat, QuarkX, EcatSK, EcatSKL ) have been the most gratifying to you, while you were working on them?
    Also, and if you are inclined, could you summarize in a few words what you have felt for each one of your Ecat iterations?

    You mentioned in a recent post about Thomas Florek’s music in
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    Personally I was quite delighted by the music and light humorous touch of the EcatSK video. Also, seeing the Ballerina was the highlight of the last demo for me. I look forward to your demonstration of the EcatSK Leonardo and hope your voice has recovered well.

    Cheers from Canada

    PS I am a new poster and up until today I have only read your blog at rossilivecat.com . Now that I see the posts here on journal-of-nuclear-physics.com , I notice that your answer to Kory earlier today appeared as “No” on rossilivecat.com, but “Yes” on journal-of-nuclear-physics.com !

  73. Andrea Rossi

    Mark U:
    All of them are my sons, but , as Ferrari used to say about his cars, “the best is always the next”. As a consequense of this consideration, the best is the SKL, albeit each of them has gratified our Team with a strong emotion. But now we are completely absorbed by the SKL, that I consider our masterpiece.
    Nonetheless, perhaps the most emotional moment has been in 1999 in Manchester, New Hampshire, where Leonardo Corp has been born in 1996, it was March and for the first time I measured an excess of energy in the very first prototype, a very small thing, with several Watts of power.

  76. Grazie Andrea;
    non mi attendevo notizie migliori di queste.
    In un giorno di grande depressione mi sento molto più sollevato.
    Per consolare la tua Signora falla vincere con le carte da gioco (se trovi il tempo)…
    Grazie e ancora grazie. Ti consoli il pensiero che tanti ti sono, almeno spiritualmente,vicini.
    Nella depressione ascolto su youtube Vivaldi, Zipoli, Sammartini, … e Morricone.
    Consiglio : di Vivaldi il Credo dell’orchestra Armena,il Dixit Dominus del Ghislieri Consort di Pavia, di Zipoli L’elevazione.
    E poi c’è tanto jazz… Brinderemo in tempi migliori.

  78. Dear Andrea,
    you are submitting your latest version of the Ecat system to the teams of third-party verifiers:
    an energy generator size 10x10x10 cm, connected to its power supply and control system the size of a pack of cigarettes.
    There are at least tree teams of verifiers:
    one of them paid by Leonardo,
    one in charge of official verification,
    one or more than one in charge of your possible customers.
    I assume that all teams are able to see and follow the entire instrumentation prepared by you to check all the parameters necessary for the validation of the test.
    1 Can they also continuously record the measured physical quantities?
    2 Can any stages in SSM be appreciated in size and duration?
    3 Have SSM phases already been achieved to date?
    Thank you if you can and want to respond to these requests of mine. Any answers will be a pleasant support in this sad period of forced isolation.
    4 Last but not least question: did you have the comfort of still letting yourself be gracefully beaten by your Lady in your tennis battles?

    Dear Andrea,

    Sorry for the lack of clarity, I was thinking along the route of increasing the power level, not with respect to what places a limit on the output lifespan.

    Do any of the scenarios I list in the previous post limit the ability to increase the existing electrical output of an E-Cat SKL to a higher output level?

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    KeithT:
    Thank you for the clarification.

  82. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With respect to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know a few things:

    1. It is highly contagious – it passes within 6 feet by air; or by touching a virus laden object and then we touch our face.
    2. Of the people who become infected, about 80% do not require hospitalization
    3. Of the 20% that require hospitalization, about 5% will require ICU support
    4. Those that require ICU support, about 1/2 will survive to be later released
    5. This assumes adequate hospital resources are available, otherwise, mortality rates will increase.

    The adequate hospital resources depend on not too many patients being in the medical system at any one time. The “flattening the curve” is done to stretch out the number of patients requiring hospital care at any one time.

    This can be achieved by:
    a. increasing hospital capabilities (more doctors, nurses, equipment, beds, supplies. etc.)
    b. Decreasing the number of infected persons at any one time (stay at home, 6 feet separation, washing hands, etc.)
    c. Improving the uninfected person’s natural resistance (lose weight, stop consuming alcohol, stop smoking, better diet, sleep more, etc.) So even though they become infected, they do not require hospitalization.

    COVID-19 starts out with the infection of a previously uninfected person. It appears previously infected persons are immune to subsequent infections. So the use of social distancing and stay-at-home requirements attempt to reduce the number of new infections per unit of time.

    The hospital capacity is augmented by adding hospitals, beds, supporting equipment, personnel, and by keeping support personnel from becoming infected. But this is limited in its ability to increase quickly – only so many doctors and nurses, even assuming infinite building and supply capabilities.

    Still, 20% of those infected will require hospitalization – unless, an improvement in the average person’s immune system is accomplished. Say, only 18% of those infected will require hospitalization? Perhaps 2% more might be able to fight off the infection without hospitalization because of an improved immune system?

    As you are often fond of saying, “the solution requires an integrated approach”.

    Social rules, increased hospital capacity, and optimization of the immunity of uninfected persons. All three, in my opinion, need to be addressed to effectively combat the disease.

    Eventually, as more people become infected and therefore immune, and the supply of uninfected persons decreases, the COVID-19 virus will fade away. Hopefully, permanently – like SARS. Otherwise, it might mutate like the flu and begin again. Time will tell. Hopefully, a vaccination will become available and widely employed before a new season comes.

    So home remedies, as long as they are not harmful, could be tried, given that there is no medically available alternative at this time. A vaccine is months away. Some drugs may be available to treat those requiring hospitalization but they have not yet been tested for being both safe and effective. So, for now, all three methods should be applied. Stay home (isolate); optimize your immune system; and for each society to improve its hospital capacity to handle “peak loading”.

    In a “perfect world”, we would all self-isolate for 15 or 30 days, the virus would find no uninfected persons and it would die out. It cannot live for long outside a human host. But we do not live in such a world. Humans disobey and they make poor choices. Working together, we can all get through this.

  84. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the electrical output of the E-Cat SKL currently limited by;

    A. The production of energy in the charge.

    B. As yet limited understanding of the science involved in the conversion of energy produced in the charge to electricity.

    C. The Science is known, but insufficient length of testing to provide statistically accurate empirical parameters for the control software or accurate redesign of the mechanism.

    D. The technology / tools available to manufacture the mechanism that converts the energy to electricity, i.e. machine manufacture vs. hand built.

    E. The shape or size of materials available on the market, to design the mechanism that converts the energy to electricity.

    F. Limitation of properties of available materials.

    G. Some combination of above.

    H. One or more other constraints.

    I think refining the items above to the most efficient state will provide many years of work for a large number of researchers.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I read an online blog from a medical doctor about what can be done to optimize our immune system – and inexpensively

    Finnish saunas or Japanese baths. The sequence of hot and cold exposure (within limits) increases the body’s production of certain antibody cells.

    Sounds like a way to relax after a long day of eCat research?

    Nobody knows now what can be useful and what is not to fight against this corona f…… virus: the sole things I am sure will work are:
    1- maintain at least 1.5 meters ( 5 ft ) from any other person when you are out of home
    2- wear a mask, eyeglasses, hat and gloves always when out of home
    3- stay home, unless you have authorizations for specific reasons, or when you need to buy foods or medicines
    About all the rest, I do not know, while we all are waiting for a vaccine.

  95. Xavier Pitz

    Dear Andrea,

    As we won’t learn about the specifications of the current E-Cat SKL before the demo, and as we all need inspiration / good news during this hard time, I’d like to share the following “LEGO-related” video :
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-RtJOfFlZU

    This is a perfect example of what technology & ingenuity can achieve with small building blocks such as LEGOs.
    Also very interesting in this video, is how they managed to cluster 2.304 * from the small LEGO technics 2,8 W motors to obtain the cumulative 5.3 HPs necessary to power the 1.5 tons LEGO car to achieve the blistering speed of 19 km/h.

    Now, I was wondering, how much power would be generated by clustering 2.304 * E-Cat SKLs ?

    OK, I was just kidding :), we will all have to wait for the demo…

    Another question that you may answer :
    Compared to the E-Cat SK, does the E-Cat SKL requires any additional expensive materials/components which would make it only economically viable for electricity production at the grid level (almost always at full power), and make its prohibitive for on-demand electricity generation onboard vehicles (where heavy batteries will still be the norm for years to come) ?

    @All : be well, stay well,

    Best Regards,

    Xavier Pitz

  100. Dear Andrea,
    if you can tell us from which countries the verifiers for the preliminary tests must come, we could evaluate how long we will have to wait for the start of the official tests.
    I find it very positive that verifiers can already follow the operation of the Leonardo E-Cat SKL
    remotely.
    While regretting the delays, you seem optimistic and positive.
    Thanks for what you are doing, best and warm wishes

  104. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The question I would pose is whether a 1 hour demonstration of the eCat SKL (without any input power) is sufficient to show that a hidden Li Ion battery could not be the source of the observed power.

    Assumptions:
    1 eCat SKL: 100W total power output, mass = 100 grams, electrical efficiency of 80%, only electrical output is observed, observation time = 1 hour.
    (1 hour was assumed as that is the typical time (1 to 2 hours) in past demonstrations)

    Lithium Ion battery characteristics: (Lithium Ion battery assumed as the most promising candidate based on densities)
    Specific Power density: 200 – 330 W/kg
    Specific Energy density: 100 – 200 W-hr/kg

    Total Output of eCat SKL:
    Specific Power density: 1,000 W/kg (100W / 0.1kg)
    Specific Energy density: 1,000 W-hr/kg (100 W * 1 hour / 0.1 kg)

    Electrical Output of eCat SKL:
    Specific Power density: 800 W/kg (80% efficiency)
    Specific Energy density: 800 W-hr/kg (80% efficiency)

    Conclusion: Given the mass of the eCat SKL, the output power, and the 1 hour demonstration time, a Lithium Ion battery cannot supply the assumed observed power over a demonstration period of 1 hour or greater.

    Thoughts?

  105. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your amalysis. The duration of the demo will be surely long enough to avoid misunderstandings.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I derived joy from adding wheels to a single Lego brick and calling it a toy. I also collaborated with friends to build 1/4th scale car. They make tall giraffes and small castles out of legos.
    Q1. Does your LEGO analogy hold up at a household level or at a commercial storefront level as well? (I’ll be happy with either answer!)
    Q2. Once the safety certifications are made, and when you are financially comfortable, perhaps the evening before commercial launch, will you donate a large, stand alone ‘minestrone soup pot’ that can daily cook the soup for about 100 people, without any external energy source, to the church of your choice? (I’d love for them to be able to say that this was the first fruit of Andrea‘s efforts that changed humanity to kindness.)

    I have a question regarding the cubic shape of the E-Cat SKL:

    1) Is it required by some technical reason, or

    2) It can be modified (within some limits) respecting the total volume, like 16x16x4

    I’m thinking to applications, like notebooks, where a more “thin” shape is probably better…

    Thanks a lot,

    Dear Andrea,

    You reply to Daniel Galburt today is very interesting:

    That the E-Cat SKL has operated without external power for over 24 hours generation 100W + of net electrical power.

    1. Is this typical performance for the SKL nowadays, or was this an exception?
    2. Have other persons witnessed and verified this performance, or just you in your own lab?
    3. This performance, if safe and reliable, could make an extremely useful household product. Are you planning to launch the first SKL products for use in homes?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    you mentioned that the ECAT SKL is a small cube with a weight of 100g.

    This means the cube is approximately only 3*3*3 cm.

    1. Is this near the reality?
    2. How many ECAT SKL can be controlled by the control unit?
    3. You mentioned the control unit is as large as a pack cigarettes. Is that still the case?

    I’m very curious about power and electrical output.

    Some questions about that, if I may:
    1. Does each party have a separate E-cat for testing?
    2. Is/Are this/both E-cat(s) at your lab?
    3. Have both parties started testing?
    4. You said there is an ‘independent third party’ test entity, that is not payed by you. What makes them testing it anyway:
    A. Payed by another party
    B. Because they are curious
    C. Some other reason
    5. Are these 3rd party tests be done by a company specialized in this and doing this?
    6. Will the test/certification results be presented at the same time when both parties are finished or are they be presented separately?
    7. What is roughly the current estimate when both are finished?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, all the best and good health, Gerard

    Gerard McEk:
    There are more than two parties examining the SKL.
    1 no
    2 yes
    3 some has
    4 C ( Clients )
    5 obviously
    6 the certifications will be presented when the product will be for sale, the tests are under NDA, eventually it will depend on the situations
    7 with the corona virus restrictions nobody can schedule anything

    Dr Rossi:
    I studied with attention
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and I discovered that the electric enregy you extract from the plasma does not come from the nucleus, but from the electrons, therefore your theoretical system, as it is proposed in the paper, depends of the physic of the electron inspired by the model proposed from Hestenes, not from the usual models of the LENR. Am I correct ?

    Dear Andrea,

    So is the current third party testing preliminary, before submitting the SKL for product certification, or can the two things occur simultaneously?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  155. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The two things are completely independent from each other.
    The certification entity is paid by us to make the product certification, while the independent third party is not paid by us.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As time goes on and you and your team has improved the eCat SKL, are you now in a position where you can definitively state the eCat SKL is operating:

    a. reliably
    b. within your desired output power range
    c. With a sufficiently high electrical energy conversion/generation ratio (compared to total energy produced)

  157. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I’d say all of them, reasonably balanced. So far.

  162. Dear Andrea,
    There are lots of opinions on which measures should be implemented to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important, however, to have a solid understanding to base the opinions on.
    Here’s a mathematical analysis of how the pandemic behaves, in China, Italy, Spain, and Sweden, with some attempts at forecasting, that I think could be interesting. I am looking at the number of deaths which is more reliable than the number of confirmed cases. The main take-away is that the daily number of deaths culminates ONLY when you manage to push down the daily growth of deaths below 10 percent, AND if you keep pushing it down.
    China and Italy have managed to do this. It is not entirely clear, however, that the decline of growth depends only of the lockdown, since the decline starts on the same day that the lockdown is implemented, which is not possible—the decline in the growth of deaths should be delayed by at least one week. So there might be other explanations, including herd immunity, if the true number of cases is much larger than the number of confirmed cases, most of them being without symptoms.

    Dear Andrea, I was very interested in your reply to KiethT on the 25th March.

    He asked if the current safety testing completed the certification requirements for E-Cat domestic use and you replied yes.

    Can expand on your reply? Which standards will the E-Cat be certified as compliant with?

    If it will be CE marked, which EN standards specifically will it meet?

    Thanks.

  169. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    Please read better: KeithT did not ask if we have completed the certifications, he asked if the certifications will include etc, and I answered yes to this, not to what you say.
    The certifications are on course and have not been completed. Obviously they will be completed before we put in commerce the product, which means when the Ecat SKL will be ready to be put in commerce, and it is not now. Obviously, when the product will be in commerce the certifications will be made public, not before, for reasons that are obvious; everybody familiar with the matter knows that the procedures for certifications of products are always covered by NDA until they are granted and the trolls that are making a mess about this issue are paid by guys that are shooting their usual tennis balls to try to stop the carrier of our work.

    Graded nanocomposite metamaterials for a double-sided radiative cooling architecture with a record breaking cooling power density.

    Abstract – As an emerging electricity-free cooling technology, radiative cooling employs outer space as the heat sink. With this, a sky-facing thermal emitter is usually required. Due to the blackbody radiation limit ambient temperature, the maximum cooling power density for a single-faced radiative cooling device is ~156.9W/m2. Here we report a double-sided radiative cooling architecture using graded nanocomposite metamaterials (GNM) designed for a vertically aligned thermal emitter. This GNM structure possesses an optical absorption of over 90% throughout the solar spectrum, and exceeds 90% reflection in the mid-infrared spectral region. With this configuration, both sides of a planar thermal emitter can be used to perform radiative cooling and a record cooling power density beyond 280 W/m2 was realized in a single thin-film thermal emitter. Under the standard pressure, we realized a temperature reduction of 14 C below the ambient temperature in the laboratory environment, and over 12 C in the outdoor test.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    “I do not understand your questions. Which atoms are you asking about?”

    The discharge that you have, I assume, in the eCat SKL from which you extract useful electrical energy. Your previous demonstration had a discharge, nicknamed the ballerina, and had a discharge of light energy whose spectrum included the ultraviolet.

    Does your current implementation of the eCat SKL include such light generation?

    If so, then my question refers to atoms within the “ballerina” that might show spectral lines indicative of certain atoms (e.g., hydrogen, helium, lithium, etc.).

    In regards to the current eCat SKL that you are testing:
    1. Did you observe spectral lines of atoms present within the “fuel” of the eCat?
    2. Did you observe spectral lines of atoms from the surrounding structure and containment of the eCat?
    3. Did you observes spectral lines of atoms produced by the eCat reaction?
    4. Or, alternatively, you have not yet measured the light spectrum of the SKL in operation?

    Dear Andrea

    I really appreciate your warnings about COVID 19. Social distancing is the most important thing we can do right now. It can make a huge difference.

    On a separate point could I ask something about the e-cat and your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions

    In its Section 1 you mention an example using Puthoff and Piestrup model of Shoulders like charge clusters containing 10^11 electrons would have a diameter of 0.12 um.

    If I understand right this would mean we would have about 100 or so electrons per cubic Angstrom (or approximately in an atom volume)? Or Did I make a silly miscalculation there?

    Just taking the mass of the electrons this would be about 0.05 the mass of a Hydrogen atom.

    Assuming they are neutral clusters also containing nuclei with equal numbers of protons (and neutrons). Then this would be the equivalent to the atomic number and mass of very heavy atoms in the periodic table heavier than lead.

    And .12 um cluster equivalent in mass and density to a 10^9 cluster of these heavy atoms.

    My questions if appropriate then are the following:

    1. Are these clusters very dense and heavy in terms of mass compared to the medium that contains them?

    2. If so is their inertia an important consideration during operation. Such as if the operating e-cat is under rotation or linear acceleration?

    3. If so is this a consideration when using it in vehicles?

    4. If so could it be controlled dynamically with magnetic fields say? Or perhaps by a geometric arrangement of e-cats allowing different units to be switched on and off depending on the direction of acceleration?

    Any way there is a big difference with e-cats and high velocity circular colliders. If such clusters are common in these devices and have such properties then it’s clear which environment is more manageable.

    My curiosity can be patient though. I suppose in the months ahead after your presentation we will all be clearer about it.

    Good luck to you and your team. And to all of them and all your readers stay safe for your selves, friends relatives and colleagues in these days ahead.

    Thanks and Best Regards
    Stephen.

    “Me too browsing around idle ideas during the forced otium coronavirus induced: do exist cases in which mainstream scientists considered seriously the possibility to travel back in time?”
    – – – – – – – –
    FWIW: My understanding is that Hawking’s view was that travelling back in time was not even theoretically possible. But travelling forward in time, he claimed, was certainly theoretically possible but probably impossibly difficult to achieve.

    To travel forward in time all you would have to do is travel at a young age to the nearest massive black hole, orbit around it for long enough (time passing more slowly under its gravity) so that, at an only-somewhat-older age, you could travel back to your planet – where time had been passing at ‘more normal’, low gravity, planetary rate – and arrive many years in the future.

    Unfortunately, however, once there you would be stuck. You wouldn’t be able to return home and back in time to tell your pals what your planet was going to be like in the future.

    I think that when I die I may have only two regrets. 1. Not being able to live for ever, and 2. Not knowing what Planet Earth will be like 1000 years from now. I would LOVE to know that.

    The only thing I know for sure about that is that Andrea will be almost as famous as Leonardo!

    Dear Andrea,
    this note is to share a sense of how deep the appreciation for the whole team’s work can delve into the heart and mind.

    I once worked for a wealthy man. One day as part of a conversation, I shared with him how my connection with nature would eventually bring me to his doorstep. When I was very young, there used to be a TV show called “Sunrise Farmer” with the topic just as you might guess and at a 4am time-slot way before my parents woke. As a 4 year old, I already loved running through the woods and sensing the deer that were not near. I was enamored with how man could work the land with the beautiful tractors and contour plowing.

    He, and now his son, has a beautiful vineyard & winery beyond what most might imagine. I would walk the vineyards and lakes as much as I could with my dogs. This place is barely a mile from one of the extreme fires in California that burned down the Soda Rock Winery. In many ways, the beauty of the area is exactly like the famed vineyard regions in Italy.

    The simple view of many, though with vastly different stories, is that the SKL will place humanity’s culture on a path for saving these places of beauty and restoring a sense of appreciation for the artistry that nature provides.

    Stay well and healthy.

    Dear Eric Ashworth,

    secure solution for communication exist, no need for defétism.

    For example: One cheap desktop with AMD CPU (no Intel because Intel CPU have mysterious unexplained “Management Engine” module), without Wi-Fi, without Bluetooth, without Ethernet connection, i.e. without internet (stand-alone PC). Linux Mint or other Linux OS on it, TrueCrypt or derivative VeraCrypt installed. Otherwise clean.

    You may wrote your texts and draw schemes on this stand-alone PC, encrypted these docs with VeraCrypt (recomended is use of triple encryption standards). After that move these encrypted docs to second PC with Linux OS and AMD CPU via some clean USB Flash. This second PC have internet connection, so You may send your encrypted docs via Signal Private Messenger which is end-to-end encrypted to your remote colleagues or counterparties.

    For symmetrical encryption in VeraCrypt You may use some phrase familiar only to You and colleague i.e. descripted it by roundabout way in communication, if You do not agreed this password ex ante.

    Don’t forget every time formatting Your USB Flash (may be infected via Your connected PC).

    It is simple and safe way. No need for thousands dollars costly proprietary machines as now infamous Crypto AG for decades compromised hardware.

  218. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Steven N Karels, I found your questions that you directed to Andrea most interesting and important with regards energy and the physical and I hope Andrea is O.K. with me putting in my two cents worth for what it’s worth.

    Question 1. Yes.

    Question 2. Extinction to me implies something becoming nothing but energy is neither created nor destroyed. When substance transmutes it releases energy and the gravity value of the substance diminishes due to one of two scenarios either the substance is acted upon by an exterior gravitational field of a greater magnitude or the gravitational field of the substance is invaded by a high velocity substance from an exterior source that dilutes the force of gravitational field. All substance relies upon a gravitational field to bind and hold, even a particle has its gravitational field. Gravity has magnitude which relates to its circumferential strength of its field, the greater its circumferential field the greater its strength which equates directly to the mass of substance it can bind and eventually release.

    I think question two answers question 3.

    Question 4. What is normal space?. I would say a laser beam would be bent by a gravitational field when in space between gravitational fields. The only thing in existence is gravity and substance. Anti matter, I believe is a misnomer. What is referred to as anti matter is substance unable to be detected by materials made of substance more dense than the substance referred to as anti matter. Consequently this negative expanded base substance becomes more positive and detectable as it gravitates onto, becoming space charge, and into becoming substance of an event horizon. If this so-called anti matter had no gravity it would not be able to be gravitated onto and into an event horizon as a pre existing unit with its very weak energy and its very weak gravitational force. Geometry of a unit of matter/energy exists in the dense physical and what is referred to as the anti matter state.

    Dr Rossi:
    I read now that this blog has reached 51,000 comments, which is a remarkable achievement.
    By the way, I noted that the JoNP’s blog has 2,550 pages, but considering the links it reached about 100,000 pages. It is a monumental contribution to the intelligence of this cultural-technological sector of knowledge.
    Thank you for having donated to us all this patrimony,
    All the best,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As I “Stay at Home” as my part of the coronavirus solution, my mind considers many things. I reach out to you for your opinion and, maybe, a diversion for you from issues of the eCat. This is a little off-topic.

    From Newton, we know there is a relationship between mass and gravity
    From Einstein, we know that energy and mass are interchangeable.

    Question 1: Is there a relationship between energy and gravity?

    We know that anti-matter does not exert anti-gravity. When anti-matter combines with matter, both are transformed into energy.

    Question 2: Does a gravitational wave form at the combination and extinction of an anti-matter and matter pair?

    Question 3: If such a gravitation wave is produced, is it because of the sudden disappearance of matter or is it produced because of the sudden release of energy?

    Question 4: Will a sufficiently high concentration of energy (e.g., a laser beam) “bend” normal space?

    Intelligent way to fight the corona f…… virus !
    Answers:
    1- yes: the gravitational potential represents negative energy
    2- the gravitational interaction of matter-antimatter annihilations has not been observed yet, as far as I am aware of
    3- see 2
    4- Yes, energy warps spacetime. Einstein’s field equations describe the relationship between energy and the curvature of spacetime

    Dear Lots Milekowsky, Your information is absolutely correct. From personal experience I have found that there is nothing secure when using a computer. My personal e mails have on several occasions been sent to addresses in London England when dealing with confidential information. Nothing you can do about it.

    Dear Dr Rossi
    Swedish regulations allow gathering below 500 people. I imagine sticking to the rules you can carry on your tests if you are already in Sweden.

    Hello DR Rossi

    Have you considered putting the
    SKL tests on hold due to the situation
    with the CV?

    If you make an Ecat SKL that is able to recharge the battery from which it takes all the energy it needs to operate and maintain undiminished the charge of the battery, you automatically have made an electric engine with infinite autonomy.

    That would be correct

  235. Dear Andrea,
    I think you are informed of the results of the Ecat Sk operating with your customers in the USA.
    What is the level of their operational functioning?
    If you deem it appropriate, express your satisfaction on a scale from 5 to 10.
    The few answers given in the last few days tell us that you are very busy for the next tests.
    Has an agreement been found on the methods and procedure to be performed in the tests?
    With the help of God go on.
    Thank you . Sincerely. Gian

  236. Andrea Rossi

    Gian:
    The level of the operational functioning is decent.
    The protocol for the tests has been defined.

    Hi dear Andrea,
    today we have good news in Italy: finally AIFA (the Italian pharmaceutical agency) has authorized the use of chloroquine, an old and well-known drug already used for malaria, arthritis and many other pathologies, such as a good therapy for Covid_19.
    The Chinese had highlighted the good results obtained with this drug to fight Covid_19, already a month ago!
    Now we hope that the immediate use of this drug will prove effective and useful also in Italy as it has been in China.
    ciao

    Dear Andrea,

    With regard to using the E-Cat SKL for powering mobile transport, although it may take many years to develop, crash test and certify for a unit physically attached and transported with the vehicle, is it possible that small mobile power pack could be developed, something that could be lifted by hand, taken from household storage say, plugged inside the vehicle for a period, (even if it was one or multiple power packs), returned to storage leaving the vehicle batteries charged for use, E-Cat power pack fitted with a unique Radio-frequency identification (RFID), vehicle interlocked so it will not start while the power pack is plugged in or on board the vehicle as detected from the proximity of the RFID.

    No E-Cat certification required for mobile transport, minor modification of existing electric vehicle, and no cables trailing from infrastructure to the vehicle. This can be a temporary measure until full mobile transport certification is obtained.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Dr Rossi
    Obviously you are quite right about the diffusion of fake news. My thread actually was”Engineering development to prevent virus outbreak”, focused on future developments.

    Just for your kind attention, 45 physicians died, and chief residents of hospital who also died here up to last week, and many more innocents who died, just because of ignorance of scientific facts and wrong directions given by the authorities of the health care belonging to the government(chief resident said before he died). Obviously it is not true for other governments that have given and taken the right directions and you are quite right. This is why I insisted on a new forum for not to extend discussions here.

    Also I recommend you could use UVC-LED at your laboratories and work place at nights for disinfection of your offices and equipment.(https://www.aquisense.com/technology).They are said to be effective for any size of viruses.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I dare one note about intentionally designed insecurity in Skype, as You mentioned Skype utilised for some comm/work.

    Long time ago, Skype was secure system. After Microsoft bought it, system architecture of Skype was changed.

    Two German IT security experts conducted such test:

    They established new totally clean server and one minute later one expert sent via Skype to second expert: the address, admin name and password for this new clean server.

    After this both experts monitored traffic to their new clean server. And what happened: 9 minutes later someone or something from Redmond IP address was trying to login into their new clean and known to nobody server with their right admin name and password.

    This very simple test is proof, that Skype is not ideal for transmitting Your very confidential info, data and drawings about Your world changing tech.

    If Your partners agree, You may try end-to-end encrypted comm systems as: Signal Private Messenger (recommended by Edward Snowden) or Status or Elixxir (XX Messenger) – both Status and Elixxir are capable to hide metadata, although are not capable to transmit attachments.

    Simply do not give to Microsoft your secrets.

    Thank you for the information,

    Dear AR and Frank Acland
    Despite what Microsoft may say, I regard Skype as a very insecure system. Recently when I was setting it up on my computer, I found Skype transmitted the whole of my brother’s Windows Desktop to my screen.
    Essential you never impart any IP via Skype.

  248. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    Thank you for the suggestion,
