  1. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    nice to read that problems has been mainly solved.
    I would like to do a question regarding the safety certification.
    Wich are the differences in terms of rules, and the issues that you are experiencing between the industrial and the home certification.
    Best Regards, Giuseppe

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    The rules are the same, the difference is that industrial applications can sustain them, domestic do not, so far. For example: the apparatus must be attended to by a certified expert: this fact can be easily accomplished in an industry, not in a household.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  3. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Recently you replied on my question about that the assumed reaction would cause a lot of radiation and would be killing for people working with it. The patent application however says that these group has never noticed radiation.
    I believe you are saying that the patent does not work and that the nuclear route you are taking with the Ecat/QuarkX is totally different and as you have said many times: “it does not emit any harmful radiation”.
    The process in the Ecat/QuarkX is a LENR process and you are able to generate large quantities of heat, light and even electricity but without harmful radiation.
    Can you tell us:
    1. Is the nuclear LENR reaction that is taking place in the ‘Rossi Effect’ without any harmful internal (within the fuel) radiation?
    2. Does that reaction simply not cause any harmful external radiation?
    3. Have you taken measures to avoid harmful external radiation?
    I hope you will be able to answer these question, but I realize that ithese may hit the IP boundaries.
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  4. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    If this group has never seen radiations is because they never obtained any effect ( as the patent examiner wrote, which probably is the reason why the patent application has been abandoned ).
    The kind of reactions reported in that patent cannot, by definition, avoid to emit high energy ionizing radiations. If it does not, it is because it does not work.
    I confirm that the E-Cat does not cause any ionizing external radiation above the limits tolerated by Law. Safety certification is on course about this fundamental issue.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  6. Gabriel

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Can you tell us how are going on the certifications for the industrial and the domestic QuarkX?
    Thank you,
    Gabriel

  7. Andrea Rossi

    Gabriel:
    For the industrial we are very well set, for the domestic there are still issues.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  8. ESG

    Do you think your E-Cat will be able to work in combination with solar energy systems?

  9. Andrea Rossi

    ESG:
    Of course! The E-Cat is designed to be able to be integrated with any energy source.
    Warm Regards

  10. Ralf

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is the COP of the QuarkX higher than the one measured by the ERV during the test of the 1MW plant?
    Can you answer?
    Cheers
    Ralf

  11. Andrea Rossi

    Ralf:
    Yes, F8.

    How is the progress of the industrial H/cat coming along. Is it in the process of manufacture and when is your best guess as to the delivery date. Best wishes and as always, may God bless you and yours. J. Atkinson

  28. Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    For the industrial application it will perhaps ready by this or the next year.
    Thank you for your kindness.

  29. Jacques

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I just need help to be able to read a paper…if you can: I find this in a text: 3^2/3
    What does mean? How can I calculate it?
    Thanks,
    Jacques

  30. Andrea Rossi

    Jacques:
    It is a fractional exponent.
    The number at the denominator of the exponent is the rate of the root of the base, while the number at the numerator is the exponent of the base.
    Therefore 3^2/3 is the cubic root of 3^2
    Warm Regards,

  32. John C Evans

    Mr Rossi
    It’s not my intention to be tedious but please suffer me these follow up questions. Seeing Mr Gerard MkEk’s comments on my last query at e-cat world made me think to be more precise.
    1. Does the thermal peak damage the reactor vessel?
    2. Does the thermal peak damage the reactor fuel?
    3. Are safe operations recoverable after the thermal peak?
    4. Does a thermal peak cause catastrophic failure?
    5. Are you working to anticipate the thermal peaks or react to them?
    6. Can the thermal peaks be controlled or avoided by modulating input power?

    Thank you for all your hard work

    John Evans

    Dear Andrea:
    I like your answer to Tom Conover.

  34. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    We miss the stories you have told us that make us devoted readers of your blog, and starry eyed dreamers that pray that you are truly able to stretch your imagination beyond today’s reach of physics. (perhaps sooner than later?) Anyway, tell us the story of your journey with the sigma 5 testing, that will confirm your new process that runs all the quarks in the universe, or at least in your lab.

    Don’t tell us anything about your trade secrets, just the testing required to move towards the astonishing proof of discovery that you seek. How far have you traveled, how far remains?

    Your first reaction will be that you cannot without disclosure, but then you will realize that you can tell us a story that doesn’t threaten your IP or legal actions in any way at all. It is just the adventure that each worthy scientist travels that seeks the proof that treasures we cannot yet see truly exist, just yet. There must be joy in this journey, that accompanies the heroic effort that you now embody in this tale of tomorrow. Tell us of your joy. Tell us about this dream of yours.

    Thanks for considering this request. We still dream about the city of lights with you!

    Tom

  35. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I understand and sympathize with you.
    The work we are making in this period with the QuarkX is a continuous measurement of these kinds: spectrometric, calorimetric, endurance, on/off timing, selection and testing of materials, production of materials that are not in commerce…all this not with a well defined calendar, apart a summary strategy of R&D: it is not classic music, it’s jazz: you start with an idea of the musical theme you are going to play on, then measure by measure notes arrive unexpected and you have to play with them. Another good model is the one of a military battle: you start with an idea of the strategy, but then the battlefield continues to change dynamically and you have to adapt your strategy to the new unexpected events that necessarily arrive.
    We had a major problem, basically connected with the reliability and the safety of the apparatus, days ago, emerged after time, and I lacked the knowledge necessary to resolve the problem, so I asked help from a top level specialist I knew 5 years ago and he taught me the science necessary to go through the mud I was stuck in.
    I cannot disclose the particulars, for obvious reasons, until the product will be duly protected.
    Anyway: I’ll see what I will be able to do to not to be boring…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  36. Zoe

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you sure about the safety of the QuarkX?

  37. Andrea Rossi

    Zoe:

  38. Giannino Lodovico Ferro Casagrande

    Caro Andrea sono tornato dall’ospedale e subito ho cominciato a spulciare il Tuo sito !!! Come sono belle spesso le Tue parole ma molto ed ancor più belle quelle del nostro lettore Tom Conover !!! Sono già 5 anni che il Tuo primo impegno lavora !!! l’ ECAT che ho visto a Pordenone ! Perché hai abbandonato quel Tuo meraviglioso immenso sublime congegno andando a studiare ECATQUARK che mi pare qualcosa di non ben comprensibile !! Un millimetro x 30 millimetri !!!????? Buh ??? Perché ???
    Mah non capisco !!! Avevi quasi finito quel Tuo primo lavoro !!!
    Il (non troppo ) vecchio Giannino di Udin Ti sprona a lavorare con sempre più intensità !!! Saluti cari Giannino !!!! ;-))
    ENGLISH SINOPSYS: why did you do the QuarkX after you already had made the E-Cat?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you seen this youtube video from MFMP?

    Faithfully yours

    Rip Van Winkle

  49. Andrea Rossi

    Rip Van Winkle:
    Yes, I just saw it. I already responded on this issue minutes ago on this blog to Gerard MkEk. who put the same question.
    This having been said, I continue to wish success to the MFMP to succeed to replicate my effect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  50. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard MkEk:
    As you know, I never comment the work of my competitors.
    Just two obvious considerations: this patent application has not been allowed because the system cannot work. Should this patent application and its theoretical implications be someway related to my effect, I would be dead many years ago, due to the high energy gamma rays that this theoretical hypothesys implies. Obviously the theoretical bases I am working with are totally strange to this proposal.
    Warm Regards,

  55. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure you will have been asked by more people on your blog about the ‘thoughts’of Bob Greenyer of the MFMP that he put on a video and in presentations today.
    See e.g.: http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/09/26/mfmp-prepares-for-an-announcement/
    1. Can you tell us if he is close in the assumed working of LENR?
    2. Are you aware of the patent mentioned?
    Thank you,
    Kind regards, Gerard

  56. H

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you oriented to define LENR your technology, or you think it belongs to other fields?
    Thank you

  57. Andrea Rossi

    H:
    We belong to te LENR field.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  58. Rino

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    Can you explain which has been the inspiration that made you arrive to the present results?
    Cheers,
    Rino

  59. Andrea Rossi

    Rino:
    The spark has been started from the first announcement of F&P. Eventually, after I reaized that the electrolysis was conducting nowhere, the idea to use nickel as a catalyzer of compounds with hydrogen came from the enormous work, and experience, I made with Ni as a chemical catalyzer in hydrogenation processes when I made experiments for my thermolytic plants from 1976 to 1994. Obviously the matter was totally different, but ideas and intuitions make tunnels between arguments apparently strange to each other.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  60. PG

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Which can be so far the lowest possible power of a QuarkX module?

  61. Andrea Rossi

    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  62. Jacques Ransick

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    You said you are going to have about 60 patents of the E-Cat and the QuarkX: are you aware of all the taxes you will have to pay every year to maintain the rights on all those patents?
    Is it worth? Is it not better to have one only patent with all inside?
    Jacques

  63. Andrea Rossi

    Jacques Ransick:
    Obviously we are aware of the costs to maintain in good standing our patents. Our Patent Attorneys are taking care of this issue.Yes, it is very much worth. It is not possible to concentrate everything in one sole patent and we already have consolidated what was possible to.
    Warm Regards,

    It is premature, now, to release the description of the QuarkX.

    Andrea Rossi

  107. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I read from Wikipedia:

    …Robert Watson-Watt, who developed early warning radar in Britain to counter the rapid growth of the Luftwaffe, propounded a “cult of the imperfect”, which he described as, “Give them the third best to go on with; the second best comes too late, the best never comes..

    So, it is better having an imperfect Quark-X NOW, instead of having a perfect one NEVER.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  108. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    It depends on the issues to be perfectioned, but I got the core of the argument. Anyway the definition of “nth” best is situational indeed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  109. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I didn’t follow your forum for several months, so I probably missed a lot, but yesterday I’ve read that you have a problem with high temperature spots in the Ecat-X and Quark-X versions of your Ecats.

    Because you have many (scientific and technological) secrets, also how you increased temperature in Ecat-X en Quark-X versions, I don’t think I really can help you, but when I read about the problems, I had following thoughts:

    Isn’t it so that in the first versions of het E-Cat, that the reaction only occurred within a certain temperature range, so that not only you need a minimum temperature (Tmin) to start (heating up with the resistor), but also that the reaction automatically stops at a higher level of the temperature (Tmax), and therefore your first reactors were intrinsically save, because in the case when cooling fails (falls away), the reaction automatically and completely stops at Tmax. I even thought that sometimes you worked with a negative feedback system, i.e. that sometimes you had to add heat with the resistor to bring the reaction back into the desired temperature range, but I can be wrong.

    But in the later versions (E-CatX and QuarkX) you see hot spots that you can’t control down? Does this mean that maybe other reactions occur at these points (dislocations and/or impurities in the Ni-cristal structure and/or fuel), so that your general control mechanism cannot influence these points? Maybe than you have to measure what’s really happening (i.e. also what reactions do occur) at these points (hot spots)?

    As I’m sure you know much more than we do, I don’t think this remark could be of any help, but I just posted it.

    I further wish you all success in solving this problem.

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel De Caluwé

    P.S. Immediately after posting this message, I leave this place for an area where I have no internet connection (and I don’t use smart-phones 😉 for several days, So I cannot react nor read reactions for several days, but I read it later.

    Dear Andrea Rossi and readers:

    The “Giacometti principle” is apparently widespread:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_is_the_enemy_of_good

    The phrase is found in Italian as Il meglio è nemico del bene (The better is enemy of the good), attested since the 1603 Proverbi italiani (Italian Proverbs), by Orlando Pescetti.[2]

    The phrase was popularized by Voltaire. He first used the saying in Italian in the article “Art Dramatique” in the 1770 edition of the Dictionnaire philosophique.[3] It subsequently appeared in French in his moral poem, “La Bégueule”, in Contes (Tales), 1772, which starts, ascribing it to an unnamed “Italian sage” or “wise Italian”:[4]

    Dans ses écrits, un sage Italien
    Dit que le mieux est l’ennemi du bien.

    (In his writings, a wise Italian
    says that the best is the enemy of good.)

    …….
    Robert Watson-Watt, who developed early warning radar in Britain to counter the rapid growth of the Luftwaffe, propounded a “cult of the imperfect”, which he described as, “Give them the third best to go on with; the second best comes too late, the best never comes.”[
    …..

    And the Russian version:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Gorshkov

    Gorshkov is often associated with the phrase “‘Better’ is the enemy of ‘Good Enough'” (“Лучшее – враг хорошего”) which is reputed to have hung on the wall of his office as a motto.

    Better (and Better) Regards,

    Joseph Fine

  112. Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: Your question about “Jacometti”. I sent this to you in a previous posting, it is my opinion you are doing the same with your reactors. “Dr. Rossi: Your question to me about Giacometti, the story goes, his wife had to take his sculptures away to sell them because he would carve until there was nothing left, striving for perfection.” It seems to me you are trying to incorporate non ending improvements in your reactors trying to reach perfection. It is my fear you will continue to do this and possibly miss the fame and money you deserve when competitors will reach the market with proof of LENR before you.

  113. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Koppenhofer:
    What a stupid I am ! I had forgotten, you are right, now I remember perfectly…
    Anyway: thank you for reminding, I will try not to fall into the Jacometti Syndrome.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  118. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Are the micro-cavities produced during the baking and processing of your fuel visible with an optical microscope or is a SEM required?

    2 – Will the baking process that produces micro-cavities on the surface of nickel powder produce the same or similar features on the surface of a nickel wire?

    3 – Have you detected the presence of alpha particles (or helium atoms after losing their kinetic energy) inside or being emitted from a Quark?

    4 – What is the most unexpected event you have ever observed or detected while monitoring an active Quark?

    5 – Will you ever show us a zoomed in image of a micro-cavity or “reaction site” in a future paper written by yourself or with another author (such as Dr. Cook)?

    6 – Do you feel that hydrogen/lithium is the most optimum fuel for an LERN system in terms of MeV released per reaction and lack of harmful or ionizing emissions?

    7 – Have you allowed any third party scientist, not an employee of Leonardo Corporation, to observe a test of a Quark?

    8 – Are there any complexities in the construction of a Quark that would inhibit automated manufacturing of the device?

    9 – Are you satisfied with the heat resistant materials you are utilizing in the Quark, or are you searching for better materials?

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Hank Mills

  119. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,
    All your followers are willing to support you in the technical difficulties you are having now, however non of us really know what is going on so a suggestion that would help you is pure luck.
    You told us about high temperature peaks. If it are hot spots then doping the fuel/ reactor interior with halogen material (used in filament spotlights) may help, but I am sure you are aware of that and I have no idea if those materials influence the LENR reaction as well.
    Just a few questions which I hope you will be able to answer:
    1. Can you tell us if this problem with the QuarkX is relatively new or did it appear already from the start?
    2. Is it right to assume that this problem was one the reasons that you went from E-catX to QuarkX?
    I hope you will find a solution soon!
    Thank you for blogging with us.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Hi Andrea,

    QSI fused quartz products can be heated to 1500 degrees C, or higher, and immersed in cold water without resultant physical damage.

    PHYSICAL & THERMAL PROPERTIES OF FUSED QUARTZ / SILICA
    Fused quartz and silica have an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion which imparts a high resistance to thermal shock. QSI fused quartz products can be heated to 1500 degrees C, or higher, and immersed in cold water without resultant physical damage. Annealing point is 1140 degrees C, strain point is 1070 degrees C, fusion point is between 1700 and 1800 degrees C.

    Have you ever tested it? http://www.qsiquartz.com/techinfo.html

    Look forward to your reply,

    It is approximately* the 15th anniversary of the Interview of (Retired) Cal Tech Professor Carver Mead by American Spectator Magazine.

    * Uncertainty Principle, of course.

    http://worrydream.com/refs/Mead%20-%20American%20Spectator%20Interview.html

    The interview may be of interest to you and your readers.

    On a less serious note, a new game has been developed by the University of Waterloo (Canada), Institute of Quantum Computing. It is called “Quantum Cats”.

    Heaven forbid you should spend (or waste) time on this game away from your important work in the lab or with legal discussions. Or whatever time you may find to play tennis with your worthy opponent. Hopefully, You may someday have a few moments in the near future to try out ‘Quantum Cats’.

    Dear Andrea

    Regarding the thermal peaks you mentioned:

    I wonder if the device it self is robust to these high peaks in temperature and if so if the problem more with the supporting apparatus handling the temperament of the device safely or is it the external usage safety that is the issue.

    If thermal buffering is helpful I was wondering if the following articles about thermal control using spinning super atoms would be interesting I hope it can help in some way but even if not or the technology is too new I think the technology itself is quite interesting:

    You’ve mentioned that the quarkX has material problems and operates at 1400 degrees C. Single crystal sapphire has a maximum useful operating temperature of 2000 degrees C. See: http://www.crystals.saint-gobain.com/uploadedFiles/SG-Crystals/Documents/sapphire-material-products-properties.pdf It can also be obtained in various shapes. Are you currently using this material?

  138. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Is the E-Cat QuarkX experiencing hot spots that burn through the cell or sudden excess heating causing cell failure or both?

    Dr. Patterson had problems with hot spots with his thin film disc-shaped cell and excess heating with his rod shaped cell.

    Would a hollow shaped cell help dissipate the excess heat, do you think?

    Best of luck with you cell control challenges.

    Dear Andrea,

    Even though I am still a bit embarrassed at asking you if you knew about “vanadium” I risk yet another such encounter with such outcome by offering you this material for your attention. It is from 2012, and you have been very busy since then, so maybe it slipped through the cracks. The paper addresses improving hydrogen storage behavior of LiAlH4 using dopants, specifically TiO2 and TiCl3-doped samples.

    If you google this title of the paper exactly:
    “Improved Dehydrogenation Properties of TiDoped LiAlH4”

    you will find links to the paper for easy downloading. I was working on loading hydrogen onto 5 of my test fuel cells (this takes awhile) and I found the paper “interesting” and hope that it might be of use to you and others that are working with LENR.

    Here is the conclusion of the 10 page paper:

    “CONCLUSIONS
    The results reported herein elucidate the influence of the different Ti dopants (Ti, TiO2, and TiCl3) on stability and the dehydrogenation properties (Tdec and EA). A distinguishing feature of our work is that, unlike previous studies whereby the influence of Ti-based additives on the dehydrogenation properties of LiAlH4 were studied individually or with other transition metal additives, here we have focused on the effects of various types and amounts of Ti precursors (Ti, TiO2, and TiCl3) under identical conditions to allow for meaningful comparison. The efficiency of the Ti precursors in improving the dehydrogenation properties decreases in the order: TiCl3 > TiO2 > Ti. Interestingly, the Al/Li ratio of samples doped with 10 mol % additives decreases in the same order, indicating that the efficiency of the Ti precursor is correlated with the amount of Li segregated to the surface or the number of Li vacancies created during ball milling. In terms of short-term stability, as received and milled LiAlH4 are quite stable; however, Li3AlH6 is formed after milling LiAlH4 with any of the Ti precursors, suggesting the occurrence of reaction R1b. The effect of the dopant on the stability of LiAlH4 increased in the following order: TiCl3 < TiO2 < Ti . Our work has revealed the relative benefits of TiO2 as a dopant for LiAlH4. TiO2-doped LiAlH4 has a higher stability than TiCl3-doped samples, and the activity of TiO2 in decreasing Tdec and EA of LiAlH4 is comparable to TiCl3. The XPS results reveal significant reduction of TiO2 and TiCl3, and the segregation of Li cations to the surface of LiAlH4 during ball milling. We propose that both phenomena, which were not observed in samples doped with Ti, appear to work in concert and are the underlying mechanisms for the improvement in the dehydrogenation properties observed in TiO2-doped and TiCl3-doped samples."

    I wish you and your team success in the many directions of your efforts!

    Tom

    Do you know that the books “An Impossible Invention” of Mats Lewan and “E-Cat il Nuovo Fuoco” are among the most sold by Amazon of their cathegory ?
    Cheers,
    Regina

  194. Andrea Rossi

    Regina:
    I am glad to read this.
    Congratulations to the Authors.

  197. James

    Mr Rossi:
    The puppets continue to say that the production of 1 MW was impossible in the restricted area of JM factory, but this is ridiculous, the area is more than sufficient for the production and the use of such energy. They know this, but continue to say the contrary: why?
    Cheers,
    James

  198. Andrea Rossi

    James:
    They know nothing of the issue they are talking about.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  199. Claudio Ferrara

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Going back to some posts ago, you mentioned the fact that the QuarkX is also producing some kind of thrust, Is it possible that it is generated by the blue light emitted by the QuarkX?
    Your follower and future customer
    Claudio Ferrara

  200. Andrea Rossi

    Claudio Ferrara:
    The thrust issue is far to be resolved technologically. Anyway it is not generated by the light.
    Thank you for your sustain.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  201. Anshel

    Dr Rossi,

    I heard from reliable source that you are recently in communication with
    certain US Government officials.

    * can you verify this, please?

    Best,

    Anshel

  202. Andrea Rossi

    Anshel:
    I do not answer in positive or in negative to this genre of questions.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  203. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Sorry if you already answered, but do you think hydrino theory is consistent, and can it explain the Rossi effect since the domestic E-cat uses Hydrogen?

    Regards,

    Michel

  204. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    Hydrinos do not exist.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  205. Renato Dantonio

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    What does take for you and IH find a way to make a settlement?
    Cari saluti,
    Renato

  206. Andrea Rossi

    Renato Dantonio:
    Two Parties.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  207. Jamar Thomsen

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is the Quarkx continuing to be in good standing?
    Thanks,
    Jamar

  208. Andrea Rossi

    Jamar Thomsen:
    Yes, also in this very moment.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  209. Mats

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Are you working on the Quarkx also during this weekend?
    Cheers,
    Mats

  210. Andrea Rossi

    Mats:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,

  211. Jan

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    When the E-Cat will be massively produced will it be distributed also in Germany?

  212. Andrea Rossi

    Jan:
    Of course !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  213. Martin Clevette

    Dr Rossi,
    You probably have noticed that the attention on the LENR is decreased in these last months. Does this worry you?
    Cheers,
    Martin

  214. Andrea Rossi

    Martin Clevette:
    In this period my focus is on the development of the QuarkX and the litigation. Honestly, I have not time for other.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  215. Isaev Irka

    Dear Mr Rossi:
    At which point is the 10 kW domestic E-Cat? When is the production scheduled to begin: 2016? 2017? Or?
    Thanks,
    Isaev Irka, Engineer

  216. Andrea Rossi

    Isaev Irka:
    I am nor ready to make a scheduling for the domestic, because they do not depend only on us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  217. Cynthia

    Kara:
    The meaning of the last papers is simple: when Rossi said that the countercomplaints were tragicomic he was not totally wrong.
    Cheers,
    Cynthia

  218. Andrea Rossi

    Cynthia:
    No comment.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  219. Haywood

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which is the difference between virtual particles and real particles, in a simple nutshell as you are so good to explain?
    Thank you,
    Haywood

  220. Andrea Rossi

    Haywood:
    Real particles are stable and they are:
    Among Bosons: photons and gravitons
    Among Fermions: quarks, protons, electrons, neutrinos
    Virtual particles are unstable and have a half life of about 10^-23s
    Virtual particles, as a matter of fact, are not real particles, but resonances of waves from the fields of the stable particles that are interacting: they indicate how quantum fields are vibrating during the interactions between stable elementary particles.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  221. Lara

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The COP that you are getting from the QuarkX continues to be very high, as we could imagine from the blue halo of the photo you published several months ago?

  222. Andrea Rossi

    Lara:
    Yes.
    F8.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  225. Kara

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can you explain the meaning of all the documents deposited in Court this morning? It seems that IH has retreated their countercomplaints because they recognize were wrong, but we do not understand the legalese. Can you explain?
    Thanks,

  226. Andrea Rossi

    Kara:
    I cannot comment any issue related to the litigation in Court, in pursue of precise directions I got from my Attorneys.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “our technology could retrofit efficiently the coal powered plants.”

    Can you provide any performance data on your current technology as to:

    a. How long in time from a cold start to full output power for such a plant?
    b. How long in time from 50% output to 100% output after initial startup for such a plant?
    c. How long in time from 100% output to 50% output after initial startup for such a plant?
    d. Do you believe that the units will run, without interruption, for months at a time?
    e. Do you envision a system design where individual units (or reactors) could be changed or maintained while the entire ensemble of reactors maintain maximum design output?

    Your proposed application, if implemented, would significantly reduce carbon emissions. China has built 1GW electrical generation systems. Even with a Carnot efficiency of 40%, you are looking at 2.5 GW of thermal output, unless your newer designs can produce electricity more efficiently.

  232. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a. we are working to make it very short. I am not yet able to give a number, because we have room to improve
    b. same as in a
    c. idem
    d. yes
    e. yes
    Thank you for your insight,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  233. Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When the E-Cat will enter the European market, will it be distributed also in Italy?

  234. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    Yes.

  235. Robert Curto

    Dr. Rossi, I am reading a book. Dark Money
    It is 380 pages. I hope you will read just 200 pages.
    It tells the story of how a group of Billionaires who have banded together to do great harm.
    They made their money in the Oil, Gas, and Coal Industry.
    One man who made his money in Oil, started to buy Coal Reserves.
    He now owns 22 Billion Tones of Coal.
    They will spend more then a Billion dollars on the 2016 Election.
    They BRIBE people to vote their way.
    The Subprime Court said there is no limit on how much money you can give as a
    “Campaign Contribution.”
    They of course do not believe that Global Warming is true.
    They are spending hundreds of millions of dollars, to tell the American people that Global
    Warming is not true.
    One Scientist tried to tell the American people the Truth.
    They went after him, he and his family received many Death Threats.
    He worked for Penn State University, They put such pressure on Penn State, that they had him investigated for God knows what.
    They made his Life a living Hell.
    It was also a heads up to other Scientist to keep their mouth shut.
    If they believe that E-Cat is a Threat to them, they will come after you with all their enormous Power.

    Robert Curto:
    These are the conspiracy theories that populated many books and movies like Bond, James Bond. Good sense tells me that smart people will invest in good technologies. I insist that all the valid energies sources will be integrated. For example, our technology could retrofit efficiently the coal powered plants.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  237. C.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How much of your time you have to spend every day for the litigation? Is this activity stealing time from the R&D on the E-Cat?
    Cheers,
    C.

  238. Andrea Rossi

    C.:
    In this very period the activity on the litigation is immense. I’d say it takes 50% of my time. For example yesterday I worked 8 hours for my Attorneys. I had to cut off all the other engagements, but stealing time to the sleep the activity on the E-Cat goes on as well as possible.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  239. Denis

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will you participate to the next ICCF in Japan ?
    Thanks,
    Denis

  240. Andrea Rossi

    Denis:
    I cannot, because I am too much engaged in my activity and cannot leave the battlefield. I know that Prof. Norman Cook will present a very important paper, not directly related to our work, but very important under the theoretical point of view. Obviously, I send my best wishes of success to all the participants to the next ICCF.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  241. Nikole

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think that the litigation between you and IH could end up with a settlement ?
    Cheers,
    Nikole

  242. Andrea Rossi

    Nikole:
    In Physics nothing is impossible, but everything must be associated to a number that corresponds to its probability. In this moment I am not able to define this number.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  243. Mitchel Dubon

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    I can’t wait to see the QuarkX in action at least in a video: do you think within this year it will be possible?
    Godspeed,
    Mitchel

  244. Andrea Rossi

    Mitchel Dubon:
    It is not impossible and it is not sure. All I can say is that we are working very hard on it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  245. Ja

    Dear Andrea,
    Do you think that electrolysis can still be a possible way to obtain LENR?

  246. Andrea Rossi

    Ja:
    Very difficult to answer. My humble opinion is: No. Bu I could be wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
