    Norway’s massive wealth fund worth around $794 billion – have now
    pulled investments out of fossil fuels and seeking investment
    in environmentally sound companies.

    Billions are waiting in the winds for LENRs entry to the market.

    Dear Andrea,
    At the end of the 1MW plant test, will you be free to tell us your own estimation of how much energy the plant consumed and produced during the test?
    Best Regards

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I appreciate your patents strategy: an enormous work to produce many patent applications, sustain them all to get allowed the best and abandone the others. This is why you win: you have a strategy and this explains how has been generated that masterpiece that is your US Patent, because it comes from a selection from many applications.
    Godspeed,
    Ted

    Ted:
    Thank you for your attention.

  7. Pierre Carbonnelle

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    Patents are very important in your project, and it is good news that you have already been granted one. You said earlier that you still have many other pending patent applications : do you expect their approval soon (i.e. in a couple of months) ? If not, can you start selling the ECat without those pending patents ?

    Thanks in advance,
    PC

  8. Andrea Rossi

    Pierre Carbonnelle:
    The US Patent that has been granted to us gives enough protection to our IP.
    Besides, as I already said, I have more than 200 patents pending and in preparation; the pending ones grant anyway a priority date. Among them I am confident that about 140 will be allowed and about 60 will be possibly rejected.
    Warm Regards

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Which destiny had the original US Patent application you made a couple of years before the application of the US Patent that has been approved by the USPTO on August 2015?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    JCR

  13. Andrea Rossi

    JC Renoir:
    It has not been approved by the USPTO and eventually it has been abandoned from us because obsolete.
    Many of the patents application I made have been rejected and eventually abandoned.

    1- the taxpayer has nothing to complain about, since we did not use money of the taxpayer
    2- hot fusion plants are eating (without heating) tens of billions of the taxpayer since 50 years now, and counting, with no results at all: maybe you could turn your anonymous attention to that kind of fusion
    3- how do I explain? Simple: it is difficult.

  22. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you think your R&D has brought theE-Cat to a point where it can now be safely be used in products that will work reliably? Or is there more R&D needed?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  23. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    R&D will never end, but if the results of the tests on course will be positive we will be ready to work on the preparation of a massive production, I think.
    Nevertheless, we must use caution when we make forecasts.

    Dear ANdrea Rossi,

    I saw this article recently on the Vortex-l website and am trying to read it.

    Perhaps, you may be better able to understand it.

    http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BiberianJPjcondensedq.pdf

    Here is the editorial from the Editor in Chief:

    Editorial

    “Volume 18 of the Journal of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science includes only four papers that I believe are important.”

    “In particular, the theoretical paper by Frederic Henry-Couannier shines a new light on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) theories. So far, most of the well-known theories are based on quantum mechanics, classical physics or the introduction of new particles. For the first time, Henry-Couannier has developed a theory of Cold Fusion based on an extension of General Relativity. This is an interesting approach, since it is hard to believe that what aims at explaining the Universe can also explain what is happening at the nuclear level. The future will confirm or not the validity of such an approach.”

    Interesting ideas,

    Joseph Fine

  25. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You have mentioned that there have been many repairs required on the 1MW plant over the course of the year so far. This is of course understandable running a machine that has never been built before constantly for a year.

    You have also said that there needs to be a redesign based on things you have learned from this test. Once you have redesigned, do you expect another long-term test, similar to the one you are now doing will have to be done for the next model?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  28. Antonio

    Hello Mr. Rossi,
    i have two questions.

    1) it is february now, the test phase of your 1MW plant should be almost over. When do you think it will be done?

    2) what is going to happen, if everything is successfull, soon after the end of the test? Will we get to know who the Costumer is? Will we see new demos? Will other Costumers be able to buy a new plant? What?

    Thank you,
    Antonio

  29. Andrea Rossi

    Antonio:
    1- Still do not know, up to the end. Anything can happen anytime to cause a delay.
    2- If all will go well, we will start the industrialization process. No more demos will be made. Other plants will be sold. I do not know if the Customer will want to expose himself or not and this, obviously, will not depend on me.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  45. Bruce B

    Hi Andrea,

    I always wonder what would possess you to think that Cold Fusion was possible discredited in the mainstream as impossible? What was it you found about the entire idea that clicked in your mind so that you just had to try what seemed to be foolishness. Can you please provide us any insights?

    I suspect you are rarely too far wrong when you get these ideas in your head that you have to work on, but i wonder what about this one made you need to try?

    Thanks
    All the best.

    The demand of lithium in the last year is strongly increased: the price of Li carbonate has gone from 5k to 14 k$ in 12 months. Is it the case that you buy a good reserve of Li?
    Not related: the primary elements after the Big Bang have been Li, H, He, which arethe main elements acting in the E-Cat: odd coincidence, isn’t it?

    Dear Andrea,
    I know there is much work to be done on the E-Cat X before it is possible to determine if it will become a product, but is it possible to glimpse a photo of the E-Cat X in its current or an earlier state?
    Apologies if my patience is not what it should be.
    Thanks for all your work.

    No, I am sorry, we cannot show it until it is ready. By the way: should we show a photo now, it would be so much disguised, that it could be totally insignificant.

  58. Alex

    Dear Andrea,

    first of all, let me congratulate you and your team on the remarkable and long-expected patent acquisition and rapid progress with E-CATs. And here is my question/opinion.

    It is evident, that you use semiconductor-based elements (diodes, transistors etc) for such important subsystems of E-Cat as control of reactor heating/cooling/heat transfer, power/voltage/current conversion and possibly others. And it is clear that the significant part of such elements works in a harsh environment (high temperatures, pressures, reactive medium etc). With all this in mind – do you use silicon-based elements only? Do you use solutions, based on a wide-bandgap semiconductors (WBG, such as silicon carbide SiC, aluminium and gallium nitrides AlN and GaN, and others)? WBG-solutions can be much more stable/reliable and effective in such conditions than the conventional silicon electronics. It can ensure more stable and effective work of E-Cat as a whole – and this is only thing that we all are wishing!

    Yours Sincerely, Alex

  59. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your insight and suggestion.

    With respect to the ECT-X electricity output could you tell us in what form the electricity is available:
    1. is it AC or DC?
    2. Is voltage fixed or variable? in what range?
    3. Is current fixed or variable? In what range?
    4. Is power variation variable due to voltage or amperage or both?
    5. Does it need conditioning (e.g. buffering, filtering etc.)?

    Thank you.

  72. Andrea Rossi

  77. Andrea,

    Since you have mentioned in the past that, besides being a hard
    working engineer, you are a musician and often find inspiration or
    solutions to problems in dreams… I thought I would share a recent
    dream with you.

    As a music/science person I have always recognized the profound link
    between concepts of music and physics. Everything is related to time,
    frequency, amplitude.

    Something I very much enjoy is teaching piano lessons to young
    students. A fascinating thing about “jazzy” chords that sound so
    soothing, mellow, and beautiful… is that they have very dissonant,
    harsh notes hidden in them. For example, within an F Maj7 chord the
    notes E and F are close together, and like two school boys fighting,
    are harsh and irritating when played by themselves.

    Here’s is an example from physics page:
    http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/beatdemo.mp3 [1]

    Some nice charts here also: http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/beats.html
    [2]

    So, my dream was that I was teaching “Jazzy Chords” and somehow they
    were affecting electrical systems. It was a persistent dream with
    variations (as with music) but I woke up thinking… Hmmm, in an
    LENR device, instead of “tuning” for a perfect sweet spot to excite
    metal lattice structure with electric current, magnetism, radio
    frequency, even acoustic energy… more than one signal, perhaps
    several… would create complex, chaotic “jazzy chords” that might
    better “excite the system”.

    Barbershop quartet singers and listeners often speak of notes (higher
    and lower) that occur because of “interaction among the singers”,
    making a quartet sound like a quintet. The interacting “new note” can
    even be louder/stronger than any of it’s contributing voices.
    Sometimes it is interaction of not the fundamental frequency but the
    “overtones/harmonics”.

    Something to ponder as you “watch your pets” late at night. With your
    stethoscope, you can hear them “sing”.

    Richard J. Pollack

  78. Pierre Carbonnelle

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Could you tell us how many visitors (people and/or entities) came to see the 1M ECat so far ? From how many countries ? (I suppose they all had non-disclosure agreement)

    Thanks in advance,
    Pierre C.

    Dear Andrea Rossi
    Am I wrong or your dream of midnight on the New year’s Eve is getting closer to its realization?

  80. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    On the path towards a potential (F9) 50/50 split between electrical and heat output, in these early, preliminary tests does it seem you have made it half way towards that goal?

    Since your fuel is so incredibly cheap (probably a penny per gram in bulk), the truth is that a 1MW plant that only operated for 100 days (not even 400) between refuelings would be an enormous success and economically viable. To produce the same quantity of megawatt hours of power would cost a thousand times more using any conventional fuel. Maybe a kilogram of fuel in the 1MW plant, even after only 100 days, would have produced more energy than 1000 kilograms (or more) of oil or coal. Operating a year between replacing charges simply makes maintenance easier.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  81. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    I am still not able to answer to questions related to the efficiency of the E-Cat X, but I can say that in these very days we are making substantial progress in the field of direct production of electricity.
    This having been said, thank you for your insight, but add F9.

  82. Silvio Caggia

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is it a wrong impression or most of e-cat’s problems arise during night times?
    And if it were true… Do you exclude any connection with solar neutrinos flux?

  83. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    nightime is the 50% of daytime, therefore there are 50% of probability that troubles occur during the night. Moreless I would say this statistic is respected.
    I am pretty sure neutrinos have nothing to do with the E-Cat.

    Dear Andrea,

    what is the outcome of the destructive tests of the ECat X? Melting, vaporization, explosion? Is there the release of any dangerous byproduct during the final phases of the destructive tests, namely dangerous chemicals, UVA/B, X-rays, gamma rays, alpha particles, beta particles, protons, neutrons, high temperature plasma/ions steam, stATIC magnetic/electric fields, RF impulses?

    Regards,
    Marco.

  89. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    The destructive tests are made in a safe environment, for obvious reasons.
    The outcome of destructive tests is melting, plus other phenomenons that are restricted.
    Warm Regards,

    Hello, Mr. Rossi. I would like to ask the following question: Was there an updated analysis of the ash of spent fuel? He confirmed the phenomenon of isotopic shift of nickel to 62 ?. Are there any plans to reprocess spent fuel, sales of nickel isotope 62 for use in the battery Nickel betavoltaiks 63.

  93. Andrea Rossi

    Fedir Mykhaylov:
    1- yes

  102. Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    I’m still very excited about the expectations of the ECat-X. You said that you can adjust her behaviour in order to select how the output is fractioned between heat and electricity. May I ask you some question about that?
    I will assume yes 😉
    1 – How fine the adjustment of that fraction can be done ? (I don’t need numbers that you probably not yet know. It’s enough if you can say that theoretically you can reach a high fine tuning or only a raw approximative adjustment of the fraction heat/electricity)
    2 – When the output is switched to full electricity does it still require a heat dissipation system ?
    3 – Is the light emission you reported due to the incandescence of the core ?
    4 – You said that ECat-X SSM is in the order of hours. Is the SSM also present when she’s producing electricity ? This would mean it’s a device that produce hours of electricity without any input and any storage. It sound too good to be true.
    5 – Please please please hurry up with the processing of the results of the 1 year test. My wait muscle is its end :)

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

  103. Andrea Rossi

    Marco Serra:
    I cannot give this information yet, since we are still in a preliminar tests phase.
    We still do not know if this will become a product, let alone how it will be.
    This kind of information will be possible only at the eve of the launch of the product, but right now all I can say is:
    F9 = the final results could be either positive or negative and for the domestic unit there are still issues related to the certification.
    Warm Regards,

  108. Andrea Rossi

    Kevin Evans:
    You asked me, by a comment I have not been able to recover, if the fact that the charges of the 1 MW E-Cat had a lifespan of almost one year now makes our expectation of charges lifespan of one year also for the next E-Cats we’ll produce, either industrial or domestic.
    The answer is yes, probably, F9.

  109. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    I hope that what you are proposing will be possible. Theoretically it could be, but we have to experiment it. F9.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  110. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea:

    Can multiple E-Cat X’s be configured such that the electrical output from one E-Cat X can ‘drive’ (via thermal heating) one or more second-level E-Cat X’s? That is, if you can generate enough electricity from one E-Cat X to drive two (or more) second-level E-Cat X’s, could this concept be extended so that enough electricity can be generated from two second-level E-Cat X’s to drive four (or more) third level E-Cat X’s. Et cetera?

    I am NOT suggesting a 64-level system!

    If possible, could there be a multiple-level system design (in which E-Cat X systems can be “switched-into or out-from”) that is both productive and robust to outages/down time?

    For example, first-level systems could be changed in/out as required since a first level system/systems would be the major input(s) to this entire concept.

    ( Maybe systems in SSM could be switched into the first level systems, to minimize total input power demand. )

    The idea is that with limited external electrical power, a multi-level system could reliably and flexibly produce electricity and/or heat as required.

    Powerful regards,

    Joseph Fine

    2 – change in operating conditions
    3 – both

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  117. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:

    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  118. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    It would appear that you have been operational at least 353 days, and possibly up to 386 days out of the 396 (today is #396) day test! Thank you for your hard work!

    Optimistically yours,

    Tom

    ps: the due diligence is below:
    Based on blog entries dated 12/31/14, 9/19/15, and 1/29/16 it would appear that the duration of the test lasted 394 days to date. As of 9/19/15 you had experienced less than or equal to 28 days of down time, or 0.106464 days per day of down time. Extrapolating the above, you may have experienced an additional 14 days of downtime from 9/19/15 through 1/29/2016, for a total of 42 down days. The time range from 12/31/14 through 1/29/2016 is 395 days of operation, of which approximately 42 days of time the plant may have been down, meaning that you experienced operational status for 353 days out of 400 days during the testing period.

    The 28 days is a maximum number per your blog, with a possible reality of as little as 8 actual days down, which would dramatically change this estimated time of operational status. Also the period from 9/19/15 through 1/29/2016 had almost daily operational status reports, NONE of which indicated an operational status that required flagging as a “non operational” day …

    So, unless the worst case was experienced, and your blog reporting was severely biased in the positive, may I congratulate you on achieving the 350 of 400 days of operation that the contract with the customer required?

    I think you and your team might want to throw your hats in the air and shout hurrah! It really shouldn’t matter if you had some troubles during the test period, the bugs can be worked out and like you said, the redesign process will correct most if not all of them.

  119. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Not so.
    The count is different.
    Thank you anyway from the sympathy that perspires from your comment.
    The real test started in February, when we thought we were ready to start to count the days of the official test.

  131. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    With you I am very disappointed with the early stop of the plant. I can understand that the fuel did last less long as expected, but that should not be a criterium for disqualification. 1. Do you agree?
    I am sure that when the efficiency is high more fuel (and less energy) is used.
    2. Do you agree?
    3. Is there another reason than exhaustion of the fuel that has stopped the plant?
    4. Have you already taken the plant apart to examine what has gone wrong?
    5. Have all four E-cats failed, or were supporting system failing?
    I am sure you will find a way out and I will keep on supporting you!

    Buongiorno Andrea.
    A friend of mine wrote (we all are very curious…):
    “I think the type of destruction will provide us with answers. Past destructions were explosive and indicated perhaps a runaway nuclear reaction. If the destruction is relatively slow (melt down or arcing) it would indicate thermal or electrical effects.”
    How is the E-Cat X dead?
    Respectful greetings
    Giuliano Bettini.

  144. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, some assumptions. On the end of the test (as it will be positive, I am sure), the Plant will remain in operation for the Customer, but I do not think that you will still be 18 hours a day inside the container. I think that the Plant will be managed by some of your team and you will use most of your efforts and time to continue the research and development especially on the E-Cat X.
    Am I far from reality?

  154. Dave K

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I understand the demands on your time, so I try not to clutter your blog too often. I appreciate the courtesy and patience with which you answer questions (some of them over and over again), and I find I generally agree with your actions and with what I understand is your path forward.

    I have worked on products (both in R&D and Manufacturing) that were produced in high volume. The products were complex and required precision, but the technology was fairly well understood. Even so, I remember being told that it took a tool maker a full year to make a certain mold for a single plastic gear. Well understood technology is not necessarily easy, and moving to production can be a very slow process! In our products, after testing a few hundred
    units for almost a year, final design decisions were made. From that point, it took about another year before the product could be introduced to the public. Manufacturing lines (which are almost always prototype in nature) had to be tested, channels stocked, worldwide marketing efforts started, etc. I am proud to say that our products were best in class and dominant in market share.

    The point I would like to raise with you is simply whether you feel the size of your team and the resources being brought to bear are well matched to the magnitude of the problems you face. For example, to test reliability, a rudimentary Weibull plot requires at least five units be tested to first failure. This seems to require 5 containers of E-cats instead of one. Since the product must be very reliable for industrial use, the first failure must not occur for many months, if not years (assuming burn-in is not required and the shape factor, usually called Beta, is not << 1).

    In short, it would seem many more units and probably two or more years of work are needed before the 1MW E-Cat can go on the market in volume. That could create competitive openings.

    There are strategies that can shorten the timing of the process a bit, but they require even more resources. As important as this product could be, I would think massive resources should be brought to bear. Market windows can close quickly and unexpectedly. You need to be best in class and first to market to establish brand awareness. The press won’t care about who is number two!

    Buona fortuna!

    Dave

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I don’t know what the new theory is (see below link), but since it has to do with changes in the internal structure of the proton, and by implication may affect the neutron, it may have results that relate to your work with Prof. Norman Cook.

    http://phys.org/news/2016-01-physics-theory-rewrite-textbooks.html

    ” Scientists are closer to changing everything we know about one of the basic building blocks of the universe, according to an international group of physics experts involving the University of Adelaide.

    If the theory is correct, it would force years of experiments to be reinterpreted, and would see the textbooks on nuclear physics rewritten.

    In a paper published online in the prestigious journal Physical Review Letters, a team of three physicists from the United States, Japan and Australia have predicted that the structure of protons could be proven to change inside the nucleus of an atom under certain conditions.

    Dr Rossi, an interesting thought by Buck on ECW, could you comment?

    Wow ! ! !

    “I can only wonder what prompted Rossi to actually answer the question . . . and to answer the question bluntly pointing towards the world of power politics. Certainly, his history of power politics in Italy gives him the personal understanding of the consequences of standing on the toes of other economic interests.

    As a thought, I think this answer reflects a fundamental change in outlook by Rossi/IH, prompting him to think from this perspective. They are reaching the end of the Pilot Plant study. Despite his F9’s, they (Rossi & IH) are nearing a time when the rubber hits the road . . . the future is no longer that far away and consequences are becoming real.

    I have been at the center of a storm a few times in my life. However, my experiences were nothing compared to what Rossi et. al. will be experiencing.”

    Dear Andrea,
    How do you add more heat to the e-catx in the stress test? Do you add more power to the heaters by increasing the voltage or the amperage or do you insulate and contain the heat generated in normal use?
    Curious regards.

  194. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1
    It is much more complicated.

  197. Hugh DeVries

    Dear Andrea,
    In regards to the E-Cat X electrical output characteristics:
    1. Is there an existing theory that explains the source of the electrical output?
    2. What is the value of the open circuit voltage?
    3. What is the internal impedance of the voltage source?
    4. Does the output voltage vary with different power settings of the E-Cat X?
    5. Will the electrical outputs of E-Cats be able to be placed in parallel and series?
    Best regards,

  199. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Andrea,

    Please, if you have some time, can you explain why “all” energy sources should be integrated ?
    With abundant fossil fuels available in the 1960’s to early 2000, most of the industrialized world did not consider wind and solar as important energy sources, besides some experimental setups.
    One of the reasons is that the number of square meters of land needed, per kW and per kWh, to produce renewable energy is huge. E-Cat technology requires less space consumption. Especially in cities, the concentration of energy production is important.

    Some more tech questions:
    Does 500 W E-Cat X produce ligt ? Its size is about a pencil. This makes me think of a 500 Watt halogen lamp.

    E-Cat has already been weighed (very precisely) while it was in operation ? If Yes, could you see the mass dissappear, or something else ?

    Kind Regards,

    Koen

    Koen Vandewalle:
    All the sources must be integrated otherwise LENR will be killed.

  201. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Let me be the first to congratulate you on the successful tests of both the low temp cat and the high temp cat. I base my comment on the fact that you have completed over 90% of the scheduled format of the low temp cat with positive results otherwise the test would have been terminated, and you have completed a significant period of test time with positive results in the case of the high temp cat. I like the 9 to 1 odds that you will announce a positive outcome in both tests, and I await the details with great anticipation.
    Confident regards.

    I am sorry, but I cannot answer.

  203. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have a Chevy Volt (electric car with gasoline range extender). I understand that the battery energy output of about 14 kWhr will drive the car around 30 miles (maybe 50 miles on the 2016 unit?). The car speed is computer limited to 100 mph. So a rough estimate of the power output of an eCat-X would be about 30 kW of electrical power (after filtering and conditioning).

    You would still need a large battery onboard to handle any startup or transient issues. You would be a better judge of the battery required capacity.

    My concern is the thermal heat generated when the car is parked. If you completely shut-off the eCat-X reactor, then you have the start-up time and therefore a larger battery capacity is needed. If you run the eCat-X continuously (to charge the onboard battery) then you may need to run the eCat-X at much less than its capacity to avoid overheating in confined placed (such as a parking garage) or in direct sunlight condition. My guess is that you might have to throttle the eCat-X down to 10% of its maximum output.

    Do you believe that you can throttle an eCat-X to such a low level?

  204. Stephen

    I understand that part of the ecat-x stress test is to apply more heating to the device. Is this right? If so may ask some clarifications?

    1. Does this generate more or less heat and electricity in equal measure as a result?
    2. Does this generate more heat than electricity as a result?
    3. Does this generate more electricity compared to heat as a result?

    4. If 3 is the case is it possible to have a situation where we get less heat out than that applied but more electricity electricity out? If so it could possibly be useful to a) control heat flow and b) to generate electricity from excess heat.

    I guess 4 is not the case but If 4 is the case Im curious how this fits with the 2nd law of thermodynamics but perhaps the process of electricity generation conserves this somehow which may give some insight into the mechanism.

  205. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    The purposes of the stress test are many.
    Answers:
    1- we’ll see
    2- we’ll see
    3- we’ll see
    4- n.a.
    Results out of thermodynamics laws, if any, are signals that the measurements are wrong.
    Warm Regards,

    Mr Rossi:
    From what I read in your responses, I understand that the E-Cat X will never exist as a real product.

    Were you able to destroy the E-Cat X during your destructive testing?

    If not, is there a point were adding more power in does not increase the power out?

  219. Byron McDonald

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    By ECatX 1.1 I mean the next iterative model of ECatX incorporating any improvements or advancements arising from operation of the current which I assumed to be ECatx 1.0.

    But, if we hold true to the software version number analogy it is perhaps more appropriate to call the current ECatX a beta version number below 1.0 (E.G. ver. 0.8) to reflect its status as a beta version product. Version number 1.0 typically indicates the first commercial model of a product or software rather than a prototype.

    In any case, my question is whether or not you have prepared a new version of the ECatX to replace this current unit and whether this new version contains any advancements arising from the experience with this present model undergoing destructive testing.

  220. Andrea Rossi

    Byron McDonald:
    Not yet.
    Warm Regards

  221. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Please build me a YouBoo that I can buy for $1200 today. It would be a chemical battery (typical lithium computer battery) with extended life, capable of output of 3 ampere at 12 volts for up to a guaranteed period of at least 12 months. It is just a battery, no special materials …, perhaps includes nickel, lithium, etc etc and would be fun to play with. There is an joker down the block that is selling something like this to blokes near me, and I want to buy a product from you, ANY PRODUCT. (Google “Orbo Product Launch”).

    There are standard procedures for batteries for UL listing, (but I don’t even think that a UL listing would be required!) for such a product, and it would be a nice toy for me to have.

    Actually, I trust you, and I wouldn’t even need a 12 month guarantee.

    Thank you very much for considering this inquiry,

    Yours truly,

    Thomas Conover

    Andrea Rossi,

    1. What is the most recent status of the 1 MW E-Cat System and the E-Cat X (following the recent test)?

    2. How long did the recent E-Cat X “Stress test” last?

    3. Did you try the E-Cat X “Stress test” more than once?

    4. Can you comment on the (approximate) maximum temperature achieved by the E-Cat X?

    5. What is the average duration of Self-Sustained- Mode (SSM) operation?

    “Curiouser and curiouser” Regards,

  227. Øystein Lande

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    If the test ends positive;

    1. Do you have a goal of sales numbers allready this year?

    2. How many units would your Company be able to construct and deliver in 2016 ?

  228. Robert Curto

    Dr. Rossi, In regards to the E-Cat Snow Removal Device, at the top of the Device it should have two Trap Doors that will remain closed, until they feel the weight of a Bucket of snow, then they will open and close automatically.
    This will keep the heat in the ‘Oven’ when no snow is being dumped in.
    Send this to your Whiz Kids.

  230. Giuliano Bettini

    Dear Andrea,
    maybe my questio is “naive” but…
    Trying to destroy the Cat, did you use:
    1 – too much heat
    or
    2 – too much electricity?
    (or none? or both?).
    Explosive regards,
    Giuliano Bettini.

  231. Andrea Rossi

    Giuliano Bettini:
    Too much heat.

  232. Ing. Albert Ellul

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    Do you have an operational prototype of the domestic e-Cat ready for to be cloned when the roll out (F7) commences?

  233. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Albert Ellul:
    F7 cannot be defined until F9 has been disclosed.
    Operational prototypes have been made.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  234. Byron McDonald

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    Kindly indicate if the electrical / heat output of E-Catx have met your expectations during this new state of operations? Specifically, have the outputs scaled in step with the increased state of the reaction? If they are scaling, do they scale proportionally or in a logarithmic manner?

    Further, it occurs to me it is possible you have created (whether in design only or in an operating prototype) an E-Catx 1.1 to replace this unit. Are you able to confirm whether this 1.1 exists and if not when?

    Thank you for your work…. I look forward to the day when every E-Cat does not have to come with a clone of Andrea Rossi :)

  235. Andrea Rossi

    Byron McDonald:
    So far the expectations have been achieved. I cannot give details yet, though.
    What do you mean exactly with E-Cat X 1.1 ? In which sense ?
    I share your hope.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  236. Dear Andrea,
    Have you performed on/off torture testing of E-cat X?

    A car’s normal service interval (let us assume it is 30000 km) corresponds to only about 2 weeks of continuous use of the engine (which the E-cat X has thus already bypassed by factor of four), but involves some 500-1000 cold starts. One could simulate cold starts by turning the device on and after it reaches operational temperature, immediately turn it off, wait until it cools completely, then turn on again, etc. In this way, one could probably simulate the required number of cold starts in about one week or so (number depends on how quickly the device warms and cools).

    I would guess that an E-cat car would already be a commercial success if the E-cat replacement interval is about 30000 km, that is, synchronised with the normal service interval of the car and corresponding to 2 weeks of continuous running plus 500-1000 cold starts.

  242. Stephen

    Could you tell us something about the disructive tests being performed on the ecat-x?

    1. Is this a test measuring robustness to high power and high tempt?
    2. Is the test imeasuring robustness to multiple power cycles?
    3. Is the test measuring robustness to external factors such as
    a) the external thermal environment? Both hot and cold and transients?
    b) multi axis vibrational and acoustic environment?
    c) external EM environment?

    I suppose 3 could be useful for the jet engine or other kinds of transportation constraints as well as use in uncontrolled environments. Perhaps those tests are more applicable to particular devices designed for those uses and built taking into account those constraints.

  243. Andrea Rossi

    Dr. Rossi, I know you are overwhelmed about possible uses for the E-Cat.
    But if this one is possible, it could make a huge amount of money.
    Snow removal today:
    A Front End Bucket Loader scoops up a Bucket of snow and dumps it into a Truck. Then they drive the Truck to a large empty space, not easy to find in a City, and dump it.
    Or if there is a nearby River, they dump it there. As you know this is very expensive.
    Every City has a Storm Drain, to Drain rain water from City Streets.

    Is this possible ?
    At the Storm Drain park an E-Cat with a very large and very hot Bin.
    Dump the Bucket Load into the Bin, where it will become water and flow down the Drain.
    Then move the E-Cat to the next Block.
