    Hello Mr Rossi,

    I just have a question:
    Is it possible to generate directly Hydrogen by making thermolysis of the water molecule in the Ecat?

    Normaly, thermolysis of water molecule starts when temperature is above 1200°C.
    It could be interesting to see if direct hydrogen generation is possible by water fractionning thanks to Ecat high temperature.

    A part of the hydrogen generated could be used to automatically refuel the ecat in hydrogen.

    Best regards.

    Frederic

  9. Andrea Rossi

    Frederic:
    Electrolysis is more convenient than thermolysis if you want to separate hydrogen from oxygen. The use of gas to fuel the E-Cat is problematic. We have worked very much on it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  10. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    Some of your detractors now think that I am just you talking to yourself… I quote:

    “Sebastian is yet another fake Rossi user.”

    “I am always amused by watching Rossi speak to himself through one of his sock puppets!!”

    I’m sure they will think this post was also posted by you! I find that quite funny.

  11. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    It’s a Freudian mechanism: is called “introjection”.

  18. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Here is a very simple question I wonder if you can answer.

    Did you find it easier to trigger massive excess heat utilizing hydrogen from external pressurized cylinders OR utilizing hydrogen from hydrides such as LiAlH4?

    My thinking is that with the cylinder you could more precisely and quickly change conditions inside of the reactor.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  20. Janice Bender

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    The more I read the critics of your foes, the more I am convinced you are going to win in the market and in Court. After a bombastic beginning to attack you, now they have lost all their credibility and I appreciate a lot the fact that you are basically turning a blind eye on them, ignoring most of their comments in your blog and continuing to focus on your great work.
    Godspeed,

  22. DTravchenko

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think your system can be useful for the treatment of radioactive waste ?
    Warm Regards,
    DT

  23. Andrea Rossi

    DTravchenko:
    I never used radioactive materials so I have not experience with this specific issue, but, obviously, the E-Cat produces thermal energy and any system that needs thermal energy can get profit from the E-Cat as a source of energy, independently from the use such energy is employed for.

  24. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Prof U.V.S.Seshavatharam,
    Dear Prof S. Lakshminarayana,

    This provides a way of thinking that allows to find an explanation for the thrust of the QuarkX.

    I wonder in which models is taken into account the absolute speed of elementary particles in the universe, and what could be the role of the influences caused by differences in speed of these particles.

    Sorry if I did not understand the paper. My optional Calculus co-processor was not included when I arrived in this world. So I’m stuck with the older graphics module.

    It seems to me that as the LHC can realize more powerfull collisions, then the more and heavier particles are to be found. Maybe the LHC creates these particles, just as a pump can create extra volume in a liquid when it cavitates.

    It makes all the calculations and models prevailing in approximately static state are not really valid at high speeds.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  25. James Santiago

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I am following your work since 2011, when you introduced the E-Cat together with Prof. Sergio Focardi in the University of Bologna. I am really inspired by your huge work, your perseverance and resiliency against any adversity.
    Waiting for my E-Cat…

  27. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I presume the ERV measured pressure of the vapor that exited the 1MW e-cat?

    Thanks

  28. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    I presume you keep your eyes open while you drive your car ?
    Thanks,

    P.S.
    Please do not make other questions related to the measurements made by the ERV: I cannot disclose further information about this issue before the report is disclosed in Court.

    Dear Andrea,

    Given the information that you gave recently (thank you!), it seems to me that power calculation would be very simple.
    Chers,
    Sebastian

  32. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    The power calculation was surely simple for a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants as the ERV is. To teach to him how to make the calorimetry of a boiler is naif, at the least.

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m really glad you invented and made the e-cat quark-x, the light it makes and its potential hope must be something beautiful in these times. This is a special gift I think, for all of us someday but especially now for you.

    I’m very much looking forward to reading Vessela’s book, I hope it is released in English soon.

    I pray it works out as the good all hope.

  37. Andrea Rossi

  40. Gennady

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    I wanted to follow up on the question I asked a month or so ago regarding the scalability of Quark X 1 MW. You mentioned that it can be scaled, such as half the size, 1/10th the size and so on.

    1. Will it produce heat proportional to the scale?
    2. Does COP remain constant, independent of the scale? (COP number was thrown around at 20+?)
    3. Since you are not ready to give us an answer on the ratio for heat to electrical conversion, can one assume a worse case scenario of 50%?

    Kind regards,

    Gennady

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- this datum will be published after the completion of the R&D on course.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  42. Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I have a question concerning the cost of electric power. Today the cost for the suppliers to provide their customers with electric power are in the range between 3.8 euro cents up to 21.5 euro cents per KW/h depending on the source (coal, oil, nuclear, renewable etc.). Could you approximately estimate the cost for one KW/h electric power (or provide me with a factor) out of ECAT technology that is produced as autarky local energy, for example in a CHP station in the basement, excluding the investment costs for the purchase of ECAT hardware.

    All the best
    Uwe Doms

  43. Andrea Rossi

    Uwe Doms:
    Too soon to answer.
    I will giove this information when the preliminar R&D on course will have been terminated.
    Thank you for your attention,

  46. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I have a hypothesis for where that whole 100.1 degrees C could come from.

    Given that the ERV only considered vaporisation for the COP , he used a dummy temperature output value of 100.1C. Possibly he used 99.9C as input temperature. Possibly there is an entire column full of 100.1C in the data. The title of the column is probably “output temperature used for COP calculation”. Possibly Penon didn’t remove that value from maintenance days.

    Most likely there is another column of data with the actual output temperature.

    I think some people at IH didn’t read the report closely and, instead of reading with an open mind, they looked for discrepancies.

    The 100.1C column must have looked a bit weird, but it makes perfect sense to me.

    Am I close to the truth?

    Thanks

  47. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    The 100.1 temperature is just a clownesque invention, nothing else. It simply does not belong to the Report.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  48. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    If I took 40 ounces of nickel powder (99.999% pure) mixed with 4 ounces of pure lithium powder, heated the mixture to 500 degrees C for two hours, then mixed in 4 ounces of potassium carbonate and two ounces of fine carbon powder, then put the entire mixture into a heavy steel Dewar for two days under complete vacuum, and then added hydrogen gas to the Dewar at two atmospheres, and then added a little heat, would there be a reaction? Is there a critical mass of nickel powder at which reactions are easier to start but more difficult to control? There is a rumor on the Internet of a similar experiment (simpler without my added details) using 40 ounces of nickel and hydrogen gas (without any heat added) that created so much unexplained spontaneous heat that the 300 pound Dewar glowed orange (800C) and the nickel powder melted into a solid mass.

    Do you think this is all just an Internet rumor, or could it be possible? The idea that using a larger mass of nickel powder might change the potential for reaction interests me and has some theoretical credibility.

    You can email me if you don’t want this discussion public.

    Sincerely, Christopher Calder

  50. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    The only way to continue your work is to start production before your opponents and political favors that are traded in the USA government are used to stop you … I think you have enough faith in God and in yourself to take this first step after your upcoming successful important meeting in June.

  54. LookMoo

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    If you read the court documents (your law suite) and your view on IH actions (or lack thereof) you notice that IH’ s action often goes hand-in-hand with IH meetings in Washington with policy makers and political advisers (of course this is only the tip of the iceberg as records of emails and phone calls have yet to surfaced).

    Mr. Mats Lewan wrote before these record surfaced,.. that there was no sign of political interference in the process.

    What do you think??

  55. Andrea Rossi

    LookMoo:
    I think there is not political interference.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  56. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you give us a range of temperature for the super heating without providing exact figures?

    For example, was the output steam always at least 110C or higher? 105C or higher?

  57. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    I cannot disclose data of the report before it is disclosed in Court.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  58. Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,
    Are you saying that you were generous and conservative enough to just account for the latent heat of vaporisation as the output energy? And even less an arbitrary 10%?

    The enthalpy of vaporization, (symbol ∆Hvap) also known as the (latent) heat of vaporization or heat of evaporation, is the energy (enthalpy) that must be added to the substance, typically a liquid, to transform a quantity of that substance into a gas.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

  59. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Not me, the ERV did this.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  62. Oystein Lande

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    I’m sorry. Was just curious of what principles were used. We will wait for later then.

    About your answer to Sebastian:

    Does this imply that heating was done in stages?
    I mean one core was boiling water and the next was superheating the steam from boiler section?

  63. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    It’s ok, thanks for your comprehension.
    The circuit was complex, but yes, the steam was superheated.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  64. Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your response earlier today. It clarifies things a bit.

    I do have one more question:

    You told Mats Lewan that to be conservative, the ERV ignored the energy corresponding to heating the inflowing cooled water (at about 60˚C) to boiling temperature.

    Did the ERV also ignore the energy corresponding to heating the vaporized water to temperatures above boiling point?

    Thank you!

  65. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    Good question. Yes, the ERV ignored also the energy spent to heat the steam above the boiling point, as well as the energy necessary to raise the temperature of the water from circa 60-70 °C to the boiling point, to be conservative.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  68. Bernie

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    It is very interesting to follow your progress with the QuarkX,along with following the story with IH and the lawsuit. Because LENR can be considered a disruptive technology I am sure it is in the best interest of many to stay aware of all you do. Can you tell us about contacts (if any) you have had with President Obama, Military officials, NASA, Wall street bankers etc..

    Did you see my question on steam quality?

    Was it measured?

  73. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    Let me repeat another time: I cannot disclose even parts of the Report of the ERV before it is disclosed in Court. All I can say is that the measurements have been made by a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants, certifications and validations. Do you think we ( or you ) have to explain to him how to measure the energy consumed and the energy produced by a boiler during one year ?

    Could you tell us if the output temperature of the 1MW plant was indeed 100.1 degrees C?

    This is the value that the IH people have been posting on the forums, so if you could confirm/deny, it would be helpful.

    Many thanks!

  77. Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    No, the value of 100.1 has been invented by the usual clowns.
    I repeat that I cannot disclose the data of the Report of the ERV before it is disclosed in Court.

  78. DvH

    Hello Mr Rossi,

    a few days ago (16th may) Frank Acland asked for some confirmation about the measurents during THE TEST : he asked and you confirmed that fluid flow and deltaT was measured to get the generated heat.
    Obviously electric input energy was also measured and logged…
    Did you measure fluid pressure at container inlet and at container outlet ? you know – as Shakespeare said: STEAM OR NO STEAM – THAT IS THE QUESTION ! if the customer (JM) REQUIRED HOT WATER, then you must take care to AVOID steam. If the customer REQUIRED STEAM, then you must avoid WATER.
    How was that done ?
    greetings
    dvh

  79. Andrea Rossi

    DvH:
    As you know, I cannot disclose the data of the ERV Report before it is disclosed in Court.
    Obviously the measurements necessary to calculate the energy output and the energy input have been made.
    I repeat that such measurements have been made by a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants.
    Warm Regards,

  80. Robert Dorr

    Andrea,

    I was just wondering if you had seen the newly found information that Tom Darden met with President Obama in January 2012 shortly before he contacted you in early 2012?

    Thank you for your hard work.

    Robert Dorr

  81. Andrea Rossi

    Robert Dorr:
    Yes, I saw it, but it was much time before we met, therefore surely LENR were not in his mind at that time, as I know. I am surprised he asked to meet the President, because I always talked very well to him of the President Obama, that I consider one of the most courageous and illuminated Presidents of the History of this Great Country, while Darden always was dismissive about the issue, and used to say that the President Obama is a “communist”.
    Not surprisingly, opportunism won versus sincerity.

    Dear Andrea,

    You mentioned that your R&D includes stability, safety, start/stop procedures and efficiency tasks for the Quark that you need to complete. Anything to add?

    Will this R&D be over before the important test with the potential customer/partner in June? (F8)

    You have been given vision that no man has ever had. We appreciate you sharing your journey with us. Thank you if you can inform us for this update, I know you updated us on May 12, 16 about these items.
    May your journey continue to be guided by deep insight,

  91. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Allow me to expand the question. Do you currently believe that the QuarkX technology can competitively be the source of energy to generate commercial electrical power as would be required to either be a source of electrical power for the grid or as a source of electrical power to support local electrical needs (such as appliances, lights, computers. etc.).

    If yes, do you believe this would be accomplished through the thermal output, the electrical output or both outputs of the QuarkX technology?

    Fees, Fees and More Fees:
    How Private Equity Abuses Its Limited Partners and U.S. Taxpayers
    By Eileen Appelbaum and Rosemary Batt*
    May 2016

    SEC Enforcement
    Despite the mounting evidence of private equity abuses and potentially illegal behavior, SEC enforcement actions have been minimal, with only six actions against PE general partners between 2014 and 2016. In 2014, the SEC targeted two small private equity firms — Lincolnshire Management and Clean Energy Capital — for infractions that were relatively minor. In 2015, KKR paid $30 million to settle an enforcement action for misallocating expenses in failed buyout deals; Blackstone paid $39 million to settle charges of improper fee allocation; Fenway Partners paid modest fines for failing to share fee income with investors; and Cherokee Investment Partners paid minimal fines for inappropriate expense charges. The SEC allowed the PE firms in these cases to pay fines with no admission of guilt.

    SEC Enforcement
    After Andrew Bowden’s shocking “sunshine” speech detailing private equity firms’ abuses of fee income, enforcement action was slow to follow — with only six actions brought between the spring of 2014 and 2016. In 2014, the SEC targeted two small private equity firms — Lincolnshire Management and Clean Energy Capital — for infractions that were relatively minor. More serious cases were filed in 2015, when the SEC brought enforcement actions against KKR, three Blackstone Group funds, Fenway Partners, and Cherokee Investment Partners

    Also in November 2015, the SEC settled an enforcement action against Cherokee Investment Partners for misallocation of expenses. The SEC charged the small PE firm with inappropriately charging its PE funds for expenses incurred in complying with SEC regulations without disclosing this to the fund’s investors. Cherokee Investment Partners neither admitted nor denied the SEC charges, but it reimbursed the funds for the full amount of expenses (a little over $456,000) and paid a fine of $100,000.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, can we make a rough comparison between a diode (vacuum tube) and the QuarkX?
    In both there are anode, cathode and an electric field between the two.

    In the diode the electrons are emitted by the incandescent cathode; in QuarkX the electrons are made available by the reaction.

    In both so there is an electric current in output. While in diode the output power is (at maximum) equal to the input power (COP = 1), in QuarkX the output power is superior to that input (COP >> 1).

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  103. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding your QuarkX development…

    If you used this emerging technology to generate heat by boiling a fluid (e.g., water) and running a turbine, the current industrial technology is around 40% efficient (Carnot plus turbine efficiency). That is, for around 2.5W of output thermal energy, 1W of electrical energy is generated.

    You have indicated that the QuarkX technology can produce direct electrical energy (plus some thermal energy). If this is correct, then there will still be a conversion efficiency to convert the electrical energy produced into useable electrical energy that can be sent on the grid and/or be used to run appliances, etc. Assuming an average conversion efficiency is say, 85%, the QuarkX must have an electrical generation efficiency of greater than 47% to be economically viable compared to the thermal approach suggested above.

    Questions:
    1. Is this analysis correct, given the assumptions stated?
    2. Is the electrical conversion efficiency stated above what you believe you can achieve or are you assuming something better?
    3. Are there overriding factors beside efficiency that would favor a QuarkX direct electrical mode of electrical power generation?

  104. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    All this information will be given after the completion of the preliminar R&D on course.
    Anyway, your assumptions are groundless, and this is understandable, due to your lack of information ( my “fault” ).

This had been agreed upon to defend the IP of both. This agreement has been signed by IH and JM, plus also me.
    The text of the agreement has been written by IH and accepted by JM.

  111. William Bell

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I read what the officer of Woodford wrote about the litigation between you and IH in a financial blog. They became now shareholders of IH LTD, so obviously they defend IH, but what is disgusting in that comment is that clearly they used your name and your technology to get enormous money from their investors, visited the 1 MW plant that IH made under your direction, collected further money after their technicians visited the 1 MW plant in operation in the customer’s factory and, after collecting all this money from their investors thanks to your work, they deliberately started an action to collect other technologies of the field – that never produced anything- to prepare their investors to the fact that they were going to lose your licence not paying you. Now: since they paid nuts in real cash to buy all that ridiculous “intellectual property” of your competitors, made by revoked patents, useless patent applications, unauthorized patent applications that are copies of your work, etc etc: where is in reality gone the money they got from we investors? From the available information it appears that now the sole asset of IH is a lot of sheres to which has been conferred a value of millions by very, very friendly fair value auditing, but this value is totally fake and such shares are unsellable in the real market, while the real money is disappeared and the license for the sole thing working, which is your E-Cat, is gone. Question: did ever Woodford give you money, or did you ask money from them ?
    God bless you for your work and for your fight against the fire you received from your front and from your back.
    William Bell
    P.S.
    What strongly surprises me is that they made business and gave more than 50 millions to Tom Darden, surely well knowing what is in the following links:

    Dear Andrea,
    It is good to read that you and your team are progressing well on the QuarkX and I hope with you that F8 will be equally to ‘excellent’. Good luck with it!
    I have some questions that may interest all of you followers:
    In reading your blog I’ve got the impression that you also seem to have made big steps in the theory.
    1. Is that due to the test you said you were going to do with professor Cook?
    2. Were the results of that test in line with the assumptions?
    3. Did you find behaviour that is new and still must be explained?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

  116. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- the work between Prof Cook and me is on course.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    What have you learned on the fuel lifetime for eCats? It seems they can go longer than 6 months with some additional demands on their control system. Is this correct?

    Is there a “poison” generated as the fuel is consumed and that degrades the efficiency or is it merely fuel depletion and geometry effects?

  134. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Yes, I think that the real endurance can be one year. The other questions are related to patents in preparation.

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    Dewey Weaver just admitted on Lenr-Forum that IH’s strategy was to hedge their investment from the start. In other words: buy up your competitors and file patents. That shows bad faith. Why would Dewey admit to this?

    “Woodford was aware of all possibilities with Rossi early on. The failure by Rossi to keep his side of the agreement was hedged by IH from the onset. Full speed ahead.”

    https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/3267-Citywire-UK-covers-Woodford-hitting-fraud-case/?postID=20454#post20454

    Dewey needs to get out of that fictional world and get back to reality, where people can see that there is a problem here. A very large, blockish, base-minded problem. To end on a more positive note: The confluence of nativism and tribalism in Mr. Dewey Weaver’s snow jobs ensures a swirling river of discontent upon which he so peremptorily rides.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    IH claims that your ECAT shows no COP. Meanwhile they have filed a patent application where you stands as co-inventor on a device that have a COP of 11.

    Can you tell us a little bit more about this??

  146. Andrea Rossi

    LookMoo:
    IH has filed applications for patents putting as a co-inventor their engineer T.Barker, who invented absolutely nothing, also because these patent applications copy slavely my patents. Thomas Barker is the engineer to whom I teached many things. I knew of these patent applications only after their publication on the internet and I never authorized IH to make such applications, let alone to ” invent the co-inventor”. What is interesting is the fact that they give evidence in these applications of their replications.

    Dear mr Rossi,

    I am a litle surprised that you needed no HVAC system in the e-cat container producing 1MW heat. If you only lost 1% of this inside the container, it still meant 10KW heating,…

    1. I Expect the container itself where not insulated? and therefore transferring effectively the lost heat to the outside surroundings.

    2. Did you have closed doors of the e-cat container during running?

  158. Andrea Rossi

    The data you are asking for are part of the report that we cannot make public before the disclosure of it in Court.

    The Clown, as you call it, forgot that I didn’t make any data of the report. The data for the report have been collected only by the ERV.
    We are talking of 12 millions of raw data, that, if printed, would make 66 000 pages. The exclusive holder of the raw data is the ERV.
    The temperature indicated by what you call The Clown is wrong, never cited that temperature in the report .

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding the ERV report:

    1. I have read rumors of the ERV report stating that steam output was constantly 100.1 C throughout the test, even when the plant was shut down — is this accurate? If not, can you say what the average temperature of the steam was?
    2. Was there any difference between the measurements by your own instruments and the ERV’s instruments of steam output?

    Thank you if you can answer,

    Frank Acland

  170. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- The ERV is a nuclear engineer, who worked in nuclear power plants and has a long career as an expert for validations and certifications. The imbecile that wrote such stupidities probably has introjected himself and his own culture in the brain of the ERV. Obviously what you report as a “rumor” is a nonsense. Also the number is wrong. I cannot disclose the data of the report until the report is disclosed in Court.
    2- As you know, I made my own measurements with my instrumentation and also I had access to the displays of the ERV’s instrumentation installed in the plant, so I was able to make a comparision. The data were coherent, within the normal margin of error of the instruments.

    Dear Andrea
    I read with great interest the article published by Mats Lewan regarding your visit to Sweden and your report of some of the details of the 1 year E-Cat test. I wonder if you could clarify a couple of points:

    1. From what I have read the customer’s work took place inside a sealed enclosure, maybe a shipping container also?
    2. Was the customer’s production facility positioned next to the plant in the same building?
    3. Mats wrote that “IH never had access to the customer’s area”, however you mentioned yesterday that Tom Darden and his investors spoke with the customer in his factory. Can you explain what Mats meant?
    4. Did you buy the building you looked at in Sweden for your factory?
    5. Mats said the 100 W QuarkX is the size of a pen — does each QuarkX include its own control system built in, or is that separate?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  178. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- it took place inside a plant about 20 meters long, 3 meters high, 3 meters wide, obviously closed
    2- it was in a separate area of the same building
    3- Darden and his investors met the Customer in the meeting room of the offices, that is separated from the production area
    4- we are in the process to find an agreement
    5- the control system is separate

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    You say you had 3KW HVAC coolest for the computer container.

    1. This is not the same as e-cat container?

    2. How much HVAC cooling did you supply to inside E-cat container to keep it at working conditions…?

  183. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    1. the container itself was not insulated, because this would have been useless, since all the hot bodies inside the container were thermally insulated
    2. The doors were open during the operation and there was a ventilation system that sent the warm air through the exhaust windows of the roof of the factory
    Besides: you correctly write that if the 1% of the heat produced was lost through the insulation, 10 thermal kW were emitted.
    As you well know, just to give an example that explains which amount of energy we are talking of and as any household knows, 10 kW of power are barely enough to maintain during a mild winter a temperature of 25 °C in a two rooms apartment with close windows.
    A 2 rooms apartment has a volume of about 200 cubic meters.
    We were in a factory with windows in the roof always open; by the way, as you know, warm air goes naturally toward the top being lighter than air colder than it; the volume of the factory is 6 000 cubic meters which means about 30 times the volume of a two rooms apartment.
    Now: if 10 kW of power are able to hold a 2 rooms apartment of 200 cubic meters at 22°C with closed windows, how much are able the same to heat a factory of 6 000 cubic meters with open windows on the roof and a ventilation system to exhaust it ? Obviously the temperature was warmer inside the reactors container, in fact I told you that there were about 40 °C, but, due to the fact that the doors of the container were open and that also inside the container there was a ventilation system, the internal temperature of the reactors container never is gone above the 40 °C.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  187. Micky

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Questions, if you can answer:
    1- before the beginning of the test did Tom Darden meet the president of the Customer (JM) ?
    2- did he know that the president of JM, the Customer, was also your attorney ?
    3- if yes, did he sign a contract with JM after knowing what in points 1 and 2 ?
    4- when he accompanied his investors to visit the plant of the Customer, did Tom Darden and his investors speak with the Customer in his factory ?
    5- during these visits did he say anything negative to you and to his investors, or he only said positive things ?
    6- is it true that Tom Darden collected substantial amounts of money from the investors after their visit to the plant to the Customer ?
    7- at the time Darden made the visits to the plant in the factory of the Customer, had he already received from the ERV the first quarter report ?
    8 if yes, were the results of the report with the data of the first quarter moreless equal to the results of the final report ?
    Thank you for your answers,
    Cheers,
    Micky

  188. Andrea Rossi

    Micky:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- yes

    6- yes
    7- yes
    8- yes

    Caro Andrea,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to Mats Lewan during your important visit to Sweden.

    His blog post about your meeting is well written and very revealing.

    Mats is like an escrow of trust in our community. I hope you can keep him in the loop as much as you can and let him attend some important events even if under NDA.
    Just focus on the quark-x.

    Thank you and best regards,

  191. Oystein Lande

    Dear mr. Rossi,

    what size of HVAC system did you use to keep the working conditions cool inside the 1MW container?

    I assume a few percent of the 1MW was lost as heat inside the container, which you would need to remove.

  192. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    1- No, we had two containers, one with the control systems, one with the E-Cats
    2- In the E-Cat container there was no air conditioned, because inside that container the temperature was the same you have in any industrial thermic central.
    The temperature was warm obviously, but not too much, because all the hot parts were well insulated, also to conserve the energy. Reactors, steam pipes and water pipes were very well insulated.
    There was also a ventilation system that conveyed the warm air toward the windows of the ceiling. Normally we were not inside the E-Cat container, where we had to go only in case of reparations or maintainance; here the temperature was around 40°C.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Hi Rossi

    This new technology should sound like something from the Star Trek universe. I think Quark Cell is a fitting name.
    I can hear Picard ask for some more Quark cells when he needs to refuel the hyperdrive.

    Thanks for considering Sweden for your new factory, it would be such an honor to have the first Quark cell factory on Swedish land.

    Greetings from northern Sweden, Hampus Ericsson

  196. Andrea Rossi

    It is an honour for me to make a factory there.
    I hope that Picard will not settle for a bicycle,

  197. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    According to the contract published in the court documents, this is the way that the ERV was to perform the measurements in the Validation test: “To make this measurement the ERV will measure the flow of the heated fluid and the Delta T between the temperature of the fluid before and after the E-Cat reaction”.

    Is this the measurement system used in the ERV report?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  198. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I confirm that the ERV has made the measurements coherently with the protocol signed in the Agreement between the two parties.
    He made all the measurements with his own certified instrumentation and at the end of the test the RRV has himself disconnected and retrieved his instrumentetion, to send it to the manufacturers of every instrument to re-certify every instrument to be sure that during the test none of them has changed the margin of error.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  199. Dear Andrea,

    One comment about the British 1956 patent mentioned by Greg Leonard. It uses O16, P31, Co59, Cd112 (O16 is not mentioned, but it’s there). What is common to these isotopes? They all have a number of neutrons which is a power of two: 8,16,32,64. The same holds for He4 (2), Li7 (4), Ni60 (32) and Pd110 (64). Such power-of-two neutron isotopes are rather rare, there are only a few others, namely N15 (8), Si30 (16), S32 (16), Fe58 (32), In113 (64), Sn114 (64). Some of these are very minor isotopes while some are common, like S32 which is 96% of natural sulfur.

    That said, I don’t know of any theoretical reason why a power of two neutron number would imply anything special in a nucleus.

  214. Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi, Sheba Malacara, Jaroslaw Bem:

    I accidentally opened up a “can of cubic centimeters or milliliters”.

    See “Can of Worms: http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/can+of+worms

    One milliliter (mL) is equivalent to 1 cubic centimeter.

    So, 10 W/mL is equivalent to 10,000 W/Liter. (My answer…)

    And, 10 kW/L = 1000 kW/100 Liters (That is, 1 MW/100 L)

    100 W/cc, on the other hand, is 100 kW/Liter, or 10 MW/100 Liters.

    So, at the risk of being wrong, the answer should be 10 W/cc or 10 W/mL.

    Thank you for making me think about this.

    I hope I have clarified this to you.

    But how did you reduce the volume to 100 Liters?!! (y) :) (y)

    Warm regards “Jag bara undrar?”

  223. Oystein Lande

    Dear mr Rossi,

    Will a public demonstration serve any good? I’m thinking it’s better to focus on getting it ready for the market:

    I think there may be two outcomes of a public test:
    1. Any advanced enough (like Alien 😉 ) technology will always be considered magic. If QuarkX is the real thing, the technology is far ahead of everyone. And any public demonstration of QuarkX will therefore be percieved as a magic trick.

    2. Sceptics: Rossi is pulling a practical joke on all of us. And his public demonstration will therefore be concluded a Nice magic trick.

  224. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    Inside the computer container we had a 3 kW air conditioner. Keeping the doors closed we could work well ( the computer container is m. 9 x 2.5 x 2.5 ).
    Of course some heat was lost inside the factory, but the ceiling of the factory had many air exhausts and the warm air, being lighter, goes toward the ceiling and the factory has a good height.

    I’m tired of the mud slinging, the fog machine, the missinformation, the misdirection and school playground manipulation. Honestly it’s like being 14 again. And I feel like that just as an observer. I can only begin to imagine how you must feel. I try to be open minded and I know I am ignorant of many things but I have not forgotten the detailed posts you have made this past year and seen there how they slowly developed and your confidence with the plant grew through careful care. After seeing all this mud and the direction it comes from I understand you more than before though and I am clear where the truth lies. A few weeks or a month of mud can’t undo what you have achieved. I hope you get your chance for justice and the due apologies you deserve and most of all I hope are able to continue peacefully your work with e-cat.

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding the 1-year 1MW E-Cat test:

    1. Is production data from the E-Cat customer recorded ?
    1-bis. if yes, is it available to you?
    2. If so, does the production data harmonize with the ERV report that apparently states that circa 1MW of steam was produced by the plant for the duration the test?
    3. Are the electricity bills paid by the customer retained, and are they available to you?
    4. If so, do these electricity bills harmonize with the data from the ERV report that (according to court documents) the plant operated at a COP of over 50 for the duration of the test?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  238. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1. yes
    1-bis. no
    2. they every month delivered a report restricted to the amount of steam they received and it has always been coherent with our production data
    3. yes, we have copy of all of them
    4. yes
    Warm Regards,

  239. Engineer48

    2016 IH patent application is basically a copy of 2014 Ecat Lugano report. Note image 18D showing claimed COP > 3.6.

    https://thenewfire.wordpress.com/2016-industrial-heat-patentapplication-is-a-copy-of-lugano-report/

    So IH now claim no excess heat from the reactor they designed, manufactured & had tested by the Lugano team, yet claimed excess heat in their patent application.

    Bit strange that.

  240. Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    very strange indeed. By the way: that patent application, where they put abusively their chief engineer as a co-inventor, while he has invented absolutely nothing, has been made without I knew anything about it. I knew of it only when it has been published.

    Dear Sheba Malacara Joseph Fine

    As Dr Rossi said (May 14, 2015 at 9:30 AM) he gain the power density in Quark X = 10 W/cL, then theoretical extrapolation of that power density to the power 1 MW gives volume of 1000 L. (one thousand Liters). Of course not counting the volume of the heat exchanger.
    Best regards,
    Jaroslaw B.

  242. J. Cunningham

    interesting post on EgoOut:

    Felix Rends

    “This is about calorimetry. As everyone knows, Rossi did bad calorimetry in previous tests.”

    I am very curious, I understand that it is even for specialists difficult to make an exact calorimetry on a single test devices in a laboratory, but is it really possible to incorrectly analyze a COP greater 50 using calorimetry on a device that (claimed) is producing 1MW/h thermal heat and is running 352 days in mostly self sustain mode?

    And if yes, could you please explain to me how do you think could such an incorrect measurement occur, is it a fundamental error out of unintentional ignorance and lack of professionalism, or are the data simply manipulated or falsified. So my question is, can someone incorrectly ‘measure’ a COP 50 on a device running 352 days in self sustain mode and how?”
    I like to add: can a team of paid puppets of Tom Darden, unable to make basic mathematics, continue to insult a nuclear engineer, expert of nuclear power plants, expert certificator, to be unable to measure a COP of a very small ( respect a nuclear power plant ) steam generator in 352 days of test of a plant working 24/7 ? How much are the chances that a bunch of semi-analphabete puppets can teach him to make a calorimetric measurement ? By the way: I made a search and in all the life of Dr Penon, the ERV, there has been not a silgle flaw related to his profession and his honesty. His professional record is immaculate.

    Unfortunately, in the blogosphere any imbecile can sell himself as a guru of any matter, so long his readers know nothing about the same matter: for example, a low level informatic can pass himself as a Physicist with the capital “P”: it is a sort of a masturbatory blogopopulism, an opportunity for an insignificant guy to crop a group celebration of his own narcissism, with the plus to get money from his puppeteer: guess who the puppeteer is in this case.

  244. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi, Sheba Malacara,

    Since 1 MW per 100 L is 10 kW/Liter, (or 10^4 W/L)

    The equivalent for 10 Watts should be 10 W/milliliter or 100 W/centiliter.

    Of course, I make mistakes too. Once I thought I made a mistake, but I was wrong.
