    One of my former employers, when I asked before we started a test of a new machine ” Bill, will this machine work ?”, he always used to answer: ” Casey, we have to believe it will work”. And he was right.:)

    Mr. Rossi

    I hope that you are well and are taking it easy after your surgery. I had two questions.

    1. Is there any progress or news on generation of electricity from traditional mechanisms, such as steam engines?

    2. Is there anything you can tell us in general terms about what makes the new hot-cat different? Different temperature? Different control mechanism? Different reactor geometry?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Fyodor:
    1- not so far. We are working on it with the new Hot Cat.
    2- too soon to enter in details, but all of those issues have been revolutionized.

    Dear Mr. Rossi

    I have just read that you underwent a surgical operation. As I told you before, take care. When in doubt, work out. Your health is the most valuable thing you’ll ever possess. Anyway the 400 days term has not expired.

    Greetings

  12. Andrea Rossi

    Alexvs:
    Thank you for your care: I got surgery exactly 7 days ago, now it’s archeology. No more pain. No more pain-killers. The only thing that makes me nervous is that I cannot swim and bike for a month, but I can sustain my work shift from 6.30 p.m. to 10.30 a.m., provided I do not lift weights higher than 1 kg ( 2-3 pounds). So said the surgeon: ipse dixit.
    Warm Regards,

    Robert Curto:
    Symmetry is relative to specific situations and the parity it has not to violate to allow interactions can be positive or negative, depending if when the spacial coordinates are inverted the sign of the wave function changes or not: maybe the smiling face typed by KD is the one of a boxeur immediately after a hard fight, which also implies the introduction of a deformation factor.
    Warm Regards,

  14. Paul

    Andrea,

    Did you monitor the electrical power output of the hot cat during start-up?

    If so, at what temperature did electrical power generation commence?

    Paul

  15. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    I understand and sympathize with your thirst of knowledge, but it is too soon to answer. We are collecting data. I cannot even confirm that we will be able to harness and make useful the electric signals we are getting from inside the reactor. She is a completely new concept, I have no idea if it will last and how much will last. If it will go we will have made a gigantic step forward toward a massive application.

    KD, i did not expect the smily face to come out like this.
    If you follow the instructions, and send it in an email to yourself.
    You should get it as you typed it.
    There is a lot I don’t understand about Computers.
    I have been sending the smily face for years, it never came out like in my post ????

    What will you be able to tell us at the end of tomorrow?

    That the start up was successful? (or not)
    That a superior ssm mode was achieved? (or not)

    That you are producing more electrical power than you are consuming? (or not)

    KD, Paul:
    Here is a first update.
    Here the time is now 05.00 p.m. of July 26. The 1 MW E-Cat is stable and regular. The New Hot Cat has worked out his first day of operation and so far the components have operated well. The efficiency so far is the same of the classic Hot Cat, but I am giving Her time to assess all the components. Anyway: it works. How well it works has to be seen yet.
    Warm Regards,

    Andrea,

    That should be the srtandard by which all other R&D is judged.

    Paul

  22. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    In this moment here it is 01.20 a.m. of Sunday July 26.
    The new Hot Cat is just started. She is promising well, but obviously before saying anything worth to be listened is necessary a period of several days.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  23. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    The aim of our R&D is to prepare an industrial massive production of a product that must have a very competitive price; if the new version will work ( I cannot know if it works or not before due R&D) it will have higher COP, more energy density, lower price, but, again, it has even to be started up for the first time. If it does not work, we’ll base the industral production on the Hot Cat concept we already have and that has been tested in Lugano by the Independent Third Party.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Gian Luca:
    The new version is smaller, I hope it will have a higher energy density.

    1- confidential
    2- it could, maybe
    3- no, I wait for published reports
    4- I will be able to answer when the new Hot Cat will have operated. We are assembling it, the start up will be tomorrow ( I hope)
    5- confidential

    Frank Acland:
    The term “stable” is referred also to not ssm status. Stable, in a nutshell, means without temperature and pressure relevant variations, either in ssm or in not ssm, with a constant flow of water.
    Here is the update: now, 05.00 p.m. of Saturday July 25th, we are stable in ssm. We are working on the assembly of the new Hot Cat, that, as I said, tomorrow will be sterted up. “We”, obviously, means my Team and me.

    Andrew,

    From the time you conceived of the new design, how long did it take for your team to build it?

    I am just doing my best to make my duty, as well as all the components of my Team.
    Warm Regards,

  31. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m glad to hear that you have had an idea of how to build a hot cat with a longer self sustain mode. I hope the test is a success.

    1 – Does the new design still utilize nickel powder?

    2 – Does the new design incorporate changes that could allow for a greater production of electricity directly?

    3 – Have you heard any updates from teams that are successfully replicating the classic hot cat?

    4 – How successful were the changes you made to the classic hot cat?

    5 – You have stated in the Cook paper and else where that most of the heat production of the hot cat comes from proton-lithium interactions. What percentage of heat do you guess comes from other reactions?

    6 – Have you ever tested lithium hydroxide instead of LiAlH4? If so, did it work?

    7 – Could you take a video of the new hot cat glowing in self sustain mode while maintaining the same temperature? You could cover up everything but the glowing cylinder. This would give some of us a morale boost who know the E-Cat works, but are getting bummed out by how it is challenging to replicate.

  32. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Just a quick question if you don’t mind. Sometimes you refer to the E-Cat as being ‘Stable’, sometimes you mention it is in SSM. Are these two different states of operation, or does Stable mean ‘Stable in SSM’?

    And so how is the plant at the moment: stable, ssm, both, or something else?

    Thanks very much. Glad you are healing fast!

    Kind regards,

    Frank

  33. Paul

    Andrea,

    Is there an optimal reactor temperature for the production of electricity, or is it the hotter the reactor the more electric power generated?

    Paul

  34. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    I have been under surgery on Monday 20 at 10 a.m., the operation has been terminated around 11, I woke up from total anesthesia at 11.30, at 4 p.m. I was in a bed in the computer container giving instructions to the Team about what to do ( stuffed with strong pain killers) , the new Hot Cat will be ready tomorrow morning to be started, so, in total, in a week it will have been designed, made, put in operation. It is not bad, is it?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  35. eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    Was your new approach to the design of the hot-cat inspired by data you received from further ash analysis performed on hot-cat experimental residues? Does your reference to Madam Curie constitute a clue that low energy radioactive interactions can play a part in the refinement of the present device?
    Inquisitive regards.

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    1- Yes, it has been inspired by the experiments and R&D that we made in the computer container on the Hot Cat that was the same type used in the Lugano test.
    2- No, the reference to M.me Curie was just referred to an absolute paradigm of excellence.

    Albert N.:
    Because I made a revolution in it. It is a completely new thing that, by my calculatons, should ( SHOULD) improve the “classic” one. It is an attempt: if it goes, the improvement, in term of ssm, will be strong. Otherwise, it is a wrong idea. The only way to know is to make an experiment. The funny part is how I got this idea: after the hernia surgery, when I woke up from the total anesthesy I got through, I had to stay some hour in a room, with pain. I am used to overcome pain relaxing and focusing strongly in something; obviously I focused on a new reactor and it came out. Now we did it, tomorrow goes in action. We’ll see if she is an abort or a baby. If she is a baby, is a M.me Curie!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  40. AlbertN

    Dear Dr.Rossi,

    You mention that a new version of the Hot Cat will be put in operation in a few days. You sound very excited. My question is why? You have done literally hundreds of tests on various reactors in the last few years. Why so excited about this particular one?

    Warm Regards,
    AlbertN

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Obviously, I am sure you already know that I cannot comment this insight of yours. Thank you, anyway, for your interesting lines. What is important is not if a theory is right or wrong ( sooner or later any theory turns out to be wrong), what is important is that a theory produces useful results during its lifespan. A good result can be derivated from different points of theoretical interpretations.
    About my “life in the container”: it’s now 09.20 p.m. of Friday July 25 where I am, and She is working stable.Sunday, the day after tomorrow, the new version of the Hot Cat will be put in operation too, and, honestly, I am very excited about it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  42. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    I’ve been doing extensive reading about lithium, lithium vapor, and the ionization of lithium (creation of plasma). A few interesting tidbits:

    1) In “heat pipe ovens” Lithium vapor starts to form at 750C.

    2) The lithium vapor can be ionized and turned into a plasma via several methods: lasers, solenoid induction coils, microwaves, or even ultra hot tungsten rods.

    3) The plasma is easier to ignite at low pressures of 1 bar or less all the way down to almost a vacuum.

    4) Ionized gases have different colors. Lithium plasma is reddish.

    From the Lugano test and the successful replications that have been made so far, I could see how maybe the lithium is transformed into a plasma via low pressures, high temperatures, field ionization by the square waves with lots of harmonics (which allow for a strong electric field), and the nickel tubercules that may allow for arcing between their tips where very high voltages may accumulate.

    Of course all of those conjecture could be pure bunk! I’ve learned that I’m often flat out wrong in my theorizing. However, after discussing a failed replication attempt that took place last night with someone who prepared for months (writing software, building a reactor core, setting up a power supply, etc), I’m very eager to figure out a general direction to follow that might lead to successful replications.

    My guess is that igniting a plasma in the high temp E-Cat is important. Most likely, you can’t say anything at all. But if you could just answer yes or no (if producing a plasma is needed in a high temp E-Cat) it would give replicators a small, tiny push in the right direction.

    And if I’m wrong in my speculation, it would prevent me from accidentally misleading people.

    Thank you for your time. And I hope you are able to get a small break from living in the container. You are more dedicated than Edison.

  43. Bob

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I have two questions about the time it takes to start the hot cat:

    1. How much time does it now take from start of the hot cat until it achieves COP >1?

    2. Is the amount of starting time staying the same, increasing or decreasing as you develop and improve the hot cat?

    Thanks

    Bob

  44. Andrea Rossi

    Bob:
    1- 1 hour circa
    2- this parameter is totally irrelevant, since the E-Cat has to work 24 hours per day. For this reason we do not care about it so far. Maybe for some kind of utilization a shorter time will be necessary, at that point we’ll take this issue in serious consideration.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    When the E-Cat is operating at rated output and experiences a complete electrical input failure, does the E-Cat experience an orderly shutdown.

    Mark Saker:
    1- some hint of direct electricity production has been measured
    2- too soon to know
    3- Direct production, I can’t comment further. It could not work, as well as it could. This is just one of the many targets we have in program with the R&D upon this new concept of Hot Cat; the main target remains an ssm as long as possible, to raise the COP as high as possible. Production of electricity can anyway and without any doubt made by means of well known cycles, mainly the Carnot cycle. Direct production remains intriguing, though, and we have measured direct current exiting from the Hot Cat in some amount, so that we want to know better the issue. So far it is not technology, it is just a pursue of knowledge: ” Fatti non foste a viver come bruti…”
    Warm Regards,

  52. Mark Saker

    Dear Andrea,

    Please give at least a tiny bit more information after such an exciting message.

    1. Have you performed any successful proof of concepts for the electricity generation?

    2. Is the aim for a single hotcat to provide enough energy to run a house both thermally and electrically or would more than one reactor be required?

    3. Can you give any indication as to the technology used for the electricity generation. Is it via an established conversion method such as a stirling engine or an exotic technology?

    Many Thanks and good luck with the new hot cat design.

    Mark Saker

  53. Italo R.

    Dear Dr Rossi, you have written that generating electricity is a target of the new Hot-Cat.

    I wonder (but probably you cannot enter in details) if that electricity could be generated by:

    1 – A pulsing magnetic field generated by Hot-Cat, or
    2 – Two electrodes inserted in some way inside the reactor, or
    3 – Using steam generated by the Hot-Cat ant a turbine, or
    4 – ??

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    I think you are the first case in the world of a guy that, operated by inguinal hernia, returns to work the next day and after 3 days has no more need of pain killers. I suspect that the secret element that makes your E-Cats work for months, or years, without breaking after several days as happened to the scientists that have replicated your effect is your blood: am I right?

  64. Larry

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    Can you say anything about how you would handle a power outage on the grid. Since you say power is required for safety I assume you must have some sort of backup to provide power so that you can make an orderly shutdown of the reactor in the event of a power grid failure. If you do have some sort of backup power would you use it to keep the reactor running/hot for a few hours in case the grid failure is relatively brief. I assume a power outage would immediately stop the customer’s production line.

    Exciting times.

    Thanks
    Larry

  65. Andrea Rossi

    Larry:
    Sure, we have a back up. I have to add, though, that the plant is installed in an important industrial area, therefore the power provider is very well structured, with a network of power distribution well differentiated, to by-pass the supply if a line goes in black out. As a matter of fact, no black outs happened since when we are working here.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “100% ssm is impossible for safety reasons.” While this is absolutely true, do you agree that with some sort of energy storage, e.g., a battery, the overall system could theoretically become self sustaining, i.e., require no external power other than startup? Or are there other reasons against it?

  73. Gian Luca

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Rice University scientists have been doing research on Boron Nitride structures to control heat flow in advanced electronics. Perhaps, this material technology may also prevent hot spots in heat sources of various kinds. :)

    Even though I have only commented on Carbon structures in the past, perhaps Boron Nitride materials should also be given some attention.

    Genevieve Lagrange:
    The final destination in which the 1 MW plant has been put in operation has not been disclosed, for obvious reasons.
    It will be disclosed after the completion of the tests on course.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea:
    Has the location in which the 1 MW plant is in operation been published somewhere ?
    Thanks,
    Genevieve

    Gli auguri più cari da Giannino di Udine e rammenta che finito un anno di prove nella pianta dobbiamo festeggiare !!!
    Best wishes from Giannino of Udine ( Italy) and remember that after the end of the tests we have to celebrate !

    Robert Curto:
    The surgeon prescribed to me very powerful pain killers.
    With the help of the Team I have to go in the reactors container now and again.
    Anyway is not a big deal, within a couple of days the situation should be normalized.
    Warm Regards

    Dr. Rossi, I’m no Doctor, but my guess is the bed is for you to relax your body, until you fully recover.
    You are certainly are not going to move into the Container.

    Frank Acland:
    Anyway my team brings me on the stretcher bed to the plant where I have to watch and listen to her, so I can work even if I can’t move the abdomen.

    Warmest Regards,

    Frank Acland:
    Yes until the pain is over and I can move.
    Just a couple of dsys the surgeon said, not a big issue.
    For me would be far more pdinful stay away from my plant.
    Warm Regards

    Dear Andrea,

    Sorry to hear about the hernia — I hope you have a speedy recovery! Will you now sleep in the container?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

    Frank Acland:
    By the way: today I had a surgery for a hernia due to physical stress.
    Tomorrow I return to the plant in full. After the surgery in hospital we put a bed in the container of the computers and the Hot Cat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    I recall that you were doing a 1-year test of the Hot Cat in your container. Is that test continuing following the changes you are making to the Hot Cat?

    How does the 1MW plant behave right now?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Frank Acland:
    Yes, the Hot Cat test will continue as scheduled.
    The 1 MW E-Cat is stable with no major problems
    Warm Regards

    Marco Serra:
    I am working on it. Data will be done when the R&D will have been completed.
    100% ssm is impossible for safety reasons.
    Warm Regards,

    Hi Andrea,
    What was the result of the “revolution” in the HotCat you mentioned 4 days ago, the one that should improve the ssm a lot ?
    Is it already completed ?
    Are there any data already available ?
    If not, how long will it take to complete the new setup ? And how long for the data to be available ?

    SSM is my obsession. Do you think it is theoretically possible to make a Cat that persist in ssm ? Or at least that ssm was >95% of the operation time ? (No crystal ball allowed here, just pure speculative unbinding thoughts)

    God bless you

    Marco

    I always do what my attorneys suggest me to do. Got the impression that to get counsel from Wikipedia upon legal issues is not on the manual of the wise enterpreneur.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    From Wikipedia on NDAs – an element of the agreement:

    “the disclosure period – information not disclosed during the disclosure period (e.g., one year after the date of the NDA) is not deemed confidential;”

    A disclosure period that is forever would be unusual. It might not be enforceable.

  95. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes, it is an easy application and absorption refrigeration processes are well known and reliable.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  96. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    If the 1MW plant test proves to be a success, how suitable do you think it would be for cooling using an absorption refrigeration process?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Steven N. Karels:
    Sorry, but NDAs do not work as you say. Once estabilished that nothing from a meeting can be disclosed, this is valid for ever, UNLESS there is written a precise time of expiration.
    I cannot add information to the issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “…with AIRBUS and BOEING , ‘The interest was serious, but I am bound to an NDA with both entities.”

    Non Disclosure Agreements are contracts and as such they have a limited time period, typically one year. So your NDA with those organizations have most likely expired. Can you reveal any more details of those discussions?
