    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Do you have plans for a domestic E-Cat, following the successful outcome of your latest version of the e-Cat?

    I hope and pray that you have a great success in the industrial and commercial applications of the e-Cat, but please make our dream, the domesticated tiger, come true.

  8. Andrea Rossi

    Watcher of the road:
    Yes.
    Thank you for your sustain,

    Saju Abraham et Al.:
    They forgot to say that such a reaction needs deuterium and that forcibly there would be strong neutron emissions, which will make it a quite deadly device. Anyway, until there is not an experimental prototype at work, any opinion is useless. As for the ITER, I already expressed my opinion and I did not change it.
    Warm Regards

  15. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Showing a photo of Ecat SKL in its case is today worthless.
    It could be anything.

    The only really important thing will be when, during the presentation, we will finally see this “Blue Cube” feeding for a long, long time, an electrical load without being powered by the grid.

    And we will be able to read the Report of the Independent Third Party Verifiers showing all the examinations, controls performed and measurements carried out.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  19. Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, I feel That Physics Fan did bring up an important point regarding None Disclosure Agreements (NDA’s). I am sure that many readers of the JONP realize the value and importance of an NDA but some may not.

    You, as stated have used NDA’s to protect your intellectual property from being disclosed to the general public by the experts you have recruited to help solve an important problem of yours. But as you are aware certain subjects can be of a controversial nature and can therefore create problems for people by association unlike the independent researcher who is free to investigate any subject he feels important and interested in. Consequently people bound by an NDA have an allegiance to the provider of the NDA and can if necessary remain anonymous if they feel it necessary. This an important point.

    This is something many people are unaware of with regards technologies that can be considered disruptive even though necessary to overcome a present day problem. The NDA therefore protects intellectual property prior to the issue of a patent, protects individuals from disclosing, thereby maintaining privacy and also of importance allows for independent researchers to share information of a confidential nature regarding a researchers project. Andrea for instance requires or has put his E Cat SKL into a self sustain mode (s.s.m.) in order to complete his project but if not, I for instance being an independent researcher can explain how to put his E Cat into a s.s.m. using my intellectual property. In this instance Andrea, would you sign an NDA offered by myself? but as you know once you sign an NDA the technology offered is under the terms of the agreement contained within the NDA but if the NDA contains useless information there is nothing lost and nothing gained. It depends upon the quality of the information contained within the NDA because if the NDA contains quality information able to perform as that required then both parties stand to gain according to the agreement. So the question is Andrea have you achieved the self sustained mode and if not would you sign an NDA to be given the information in accordance to an agreement provided by myself or do you consider it early days to sign an NDA?.
    Regards Eric Ashworth

  20. Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth:
    Every agreement bears an NDA. Nobody signs any agreement if not covered by an NDA. All the rest are opinions that I respect, but do not have room in the reality of the existing market.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  21. Physics Fan

    Mr Rossi, Sarah asked about a picture. You mentioned espionage. I don’t think there are such groups outside of a James Bond movie. To be more serious for a second, your technology is so important to the world that I would think you would want to do everything possible to publish everything you know about it rather than keeping secrets. Like me, you are not a young man, I would hope your goal at this stage of life is less about self enrichment and more about sharing your miraculous technology. You could win the Nobel prize easily if you just share the details. That is why I don’t understand your strategy. My question is simple. Are you in it for money or for the science? If you are in it for the science, your approach “sucks”, to be brutally honest

  22. Andrea Rossi

    Physics Fan:
    Thank you for your opinion.
    I want this technology developed by important concerns and nobody would put money without an intellectual property. Also medicines are essential for surviving any kind of illness, but without intellectual property most of medicines would not have been invented and developed and would not be invented and developed.
    Your amateurish approach does not help real and necessary investments from serious professionals, if we want really to have a worldwide diffusion of this technology.
    Not to mention the risks that an open source would generate and that every intelligent person can imagine.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  23. Saju Abraham

    Dear Dr Andrea:
    Do you think this patent below will starve to death the Eater (ITER) ?
    https://newatlas.com/energy/hb11-hydrogen-boron-fusion-clean-energy/

  24. Sarah Waldhof

    May I ask, why You will not share a picture now ?

  25. Andrea Rossi

    Sarah Waldhof:
    Because now there is not the body and the Ecat without body shows particulars that are confidential. We are not going to release photos that can facilitate espionage.
    We will be happy to show the Ecat with its beautiful body and in operation. I want not to publish fake photos.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  26. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Do I understand correctly that the presentation will be made showing a prototype of the E-Cat SKL in operation?

    Many thanks,

  27. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes,of course !

  30. Khashayar Shatti

    Dear Dr. Rossi
    Now that you have developed a device to generate heat and electricity, I hope you will eventually get successful results to commercialize it. However due to the importance of future of engineering I have sent an email to WHO to request China’s emergency department to urgently develop a hot air ventilating system equipped with hot electric elements for hospitals, restaurants, hotels and all public places to reduce and prevent the outbreak of coronavirus. Hot electric elements could kill viruses at incoming and outgoing air vents. Obviously outgoing air could also be burnt by fuel spray and fire, however devices like yours create clean hot air at reduced prices for those with limited energy resources.
    I hope your device could be used in current and future engineering developments and even in personal masks to purge air from all kinds of viruses.
    With all the best wishes
    Khashayar Shatti

  31. Andrea Rossi

    Khashayar Shatti:
    Thank you for your kind attention to our work: I hope the Ecat will be useful also in emergency situations like the one you are putting under focus.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  32. Sarah Waldhof

    Hello Mr. Rossi.

    Can You perhaps post some pictures of the current new e-cat-sk-leonardo ?

  33. Andrea Rossi

    Sarah Waldhof:
    Sure: when we will make the presentation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  34. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you already tested the automated production system for manufacturing E-Cat SKLs? If so, how is the performance of the manufacturing process?

    Many thanks,

    Dear Andrea,

    With the E-Cat SKL, do you expect the first product to be industrial, or for domestic consumer use?

    Kind regards,

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Industrial.
    Warm Regards,

  42. Chris Bernard

    Hi Mr Rossi,

    you told Mr Frank Acland, that you and your company are close to a
    reliable product.
    Let’s assume the E-Cat is ready and completely reliable tomorrow…:
    How long would it take you and your partners getting to mass
    production? How long do I have to wait seeing it on the shelfes? Any
    numbers you can tell us?
    Let’s assume the E-Cat SK is ready tomorrow… Can you tell us a little
    bit about the obstacles that are necessary to get the permission for
    domestic use of it? Do the agencies tell you exactly which
    specifications you have to fulfill? Or ist it just a “no, we need to
    test it just longer”?
    Chris

  43. Andrea Rossi

    Chris Bernard:
    Sorry, it is premature for to give precise answers at the moment.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  44. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    You were close in 2011.

    Proxima Centauri is the closest star to Solar System and is orbited by the planet Proxima b. Many things are close. Do you tease us? I continue to hope that you do not tease us.

    A: Will you have a product by June 1st? Please reply with “yes, no” or “I have no idea”.

    Otherwise, you are not being honest with yourself, good sir.

    Sincerely, and thank you for your dedication.

    Tom

  45. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I am convinced that the answer is yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  46. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    In your estimation, how close are you to having a completely reliable product?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  48. Mimosa

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is there a continuity between the experimental and theoretical demo published on Google “Ecat QX Presentation 24 November 2017”
    and the paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    in particular between the long range interactions cited in the lecture of Carl-Oscar Gullstrom and the long range interactions of the paper on Researchgate ?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Mimosa

  49. Andrea Rossi

    Mimosa:
    Albeit in the lecture made in Stockholm the long range interactions are referred to different particles, the concept of “long range interactions” is a common denominator.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  50. Physics Fan

    Hello again Mr. Rossi. I recently asked you about having one of your employees corroborate that they are working with you. You mentioned NDA’s but obviously you could waive this aspect in order to be supported by your team members. Some people might say you are making things up since there is nobody but you making claims on JONP. The same goes for any information about partners, or in fact anything about the SKL’s existence. If you wish to be taken more seriously, please take my advice and have someone who really exists corroborate your claims.

  51. Andrea Rossi

    Physics Fan:
    The NDAs must be respected. This is so to be considered seriously from serious persons.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea,

    The E-Cat SK design is now over a year old, you likely have a number of them with customers, these likely have some form of certification, even if you did want to upgrade, it may depend on what the certification body would allow.

    There may be recent upgraded versions of the E-Cat SK now tested or undergoing tests, but the designs are now frozen and it is too late to fit further improvements without a new cycle of design and testing.

    Sometimes with certification you can have a minor upgrade with supplementary documentation, sometimes the upgrade is regarded by a notified body as a major change and requires complete new certification and testing, so you end up with designs that become frozen at a certain stage.

    In the last two months of research and testing it is likely that there is a clearer understanding of the underlying physics and the ability to control, this has likely been incorporated into the E-Cat SKL controller, you may now want to incorporate a complete new improved controller into the E-Cat SK or maybe just minor software upgrades, but may be limited by time for testing or existing certification, all improvements then have to pass onto the next generation of E-Cat design and testing.

    So any upgrades for the current generation or do we have to wait for the next generation.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  61. Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    All we have to wait is a completely reliable product.
    Warm Regards

  62. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    I second the request of Nils Fryklund! It would be very interesting to all people interested in you work if you could provide data from the 22 kW E-Cat SK about heat output, energy consumption, etc. Maybe your customer could comment!

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    With the development of the small control unit for the E-Cat SKL, does this mean that the control unit for the current E-Cat SK may also in part or whole be improved, or will any improvement be reserved for a future design replacement of the E-Cat SK.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Can you kindly rephrase your question more precisely ?

    Your text has been edited by me because it was very ineducated. Maybe you cannot understand it, but your terms were very offensive, so I rephrased your comment using educated words and saving the core meaning of it.
    Anyway, I take advice of your complaint and I kindly invite you, from now on, to turn your attention to other blogs: plenty of them share your standards.

    Obviously the Ecat cannot be used as a sterilyzer: it is not designed for this task and does not have the specific certifications.

  75. CC

    Reading for the umpth time your hit paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I discovered another important information: the energy gain is given by the increase of entropy generated by the passage of the energy from the electrons in phase from the ZBW and the Aharonov-Bohm effect to the electrons not in phase. Your paper is a gold mine, the more one reads it, the more understands the importance of the theoretical system incorporated in it.

    Hot News:
    Chinese Central Bank PBOC demands currency deposited at banks must be disinfected with ultraviolet light and then held for a week or longer before being released back into the wilds of the economy. The Chinese central bank will provide new bills worth 600 billion yuan to banks.

    “Why does the cash have to be quarantined for 14 days after it’s been disinfected?… Do they fear that it will have a fever?”

    Such mystery about need for 14 days quarantine after being disinfected provoke some hypothesis:

    For example that todays usual 20 Watt UV lamps used for disinfection are too weak.

    In this context there is one question for Dr. Rossi:

    Is your 22kW E-Cat SK producing a lot of UV photons hypothetically capable for using as disinfection device?

  84. Hermes

    Dear Andrea,

    Is it possible to use E-Cat SKL to split water in an on-board water reactor to use hydrogen as fuel?

    Can the heat from E-Cat SKL be used to heat the water tank and water pipes so that the water does not freeze in winter?

    Good Luck with improvments of the E-Cat SKL

  85. Andrea Rossi

    The energy made by the Ecat SKL would be useful for any use the other energy generators could be used for.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, Dear Readers,

    I recently executed a few (very wild) economical calculations and results are:

    It will be far more profitable for Leonardo Corp. as if they not sold E-Cat SKL. Because if they sell E-Cat SKL, they may have profit around 133,825,800% per year. Assuming 80% higher production every 14 days with nice profit margin.

    As alternative: Not selling their SKL, there may be even higher profitability wit such business model:
    Hey prospective industrial customer, if you pay to us EX ANTE 2 or 3 months price of your usually consummed electricity, we will install a few thousands SKLs at your factory within cca 3 weeks and we will sell to your factory electricity for 30-50% discount.

    With such business model Leonardo Corp. don’t need operating credit from bank, don’t need investors, Venture Capital, etc.
    Because profitability percentage with such model is approaching infinity.
    After 2-3 years of operation launch IPO with P/E = Amazon (i.e. 92) which translated will a few Trillions dollars.

    And one extra premium: Intellectual Property secured all the time.

    Note: At rare cases where prospective customer refuses pay EX ANTE, there will only 400 to 500% annual profit for Leonardo Corp. (from such rare deal).

    And now I have 2 queries for Dr. Rossi:

    1) Are my calculations too much wild or close to future possibilities?

    2) One control module size of cigarette pack may control more E-Cat SKLs or only one SKL?

    Best Regards

    Gerard McEk,

    One can be an Optimist in development activities. One believes in the ultimate success of his/her development. But setbacks do occur and when there is no immediate, obvious solution, it is human to become pessimistic for a period of time. There is where faith comes to play. Not necessarily religious faith but faith in the underlying theory of the process and faith in your team to solve the problem. Once the problem appears to be solved or has a definite solution, then optimism returns. It is not a matter of lying or deceit.

  89. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Nice that you have returned to being optimistic. Was there a time when you were not optimistic?

    Thank you and best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  90. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes, but nevertheless working hard to return optimistic.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  91. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am a bit confused. You told us many times that you are an optimist. Now suddenly you said to Frank Ackland that you ‘returned optimist’. We’re you lying or had things become so difficult, that even your always optimistic mood was fainting in the past month?
    Anyway, you must be a lot more happy and so we are!

    Robert Luk, Reply to your February 11th posting. Yes I agree with your reasoning. There are many various types of experiments. Chemical such as Andreas can be more temperamental due to combinations and set-ups so obviously you need to sometimes make many adjustments but once you have established the method, the experiment should be repeatable if conducted properly to the instructions provided to any qualified person. It’s really the presentation of the technology that has to be perfect and repeatable but I agree with your considerations i.e. it has to perform with consistent reliability and preferably be backed up with good solid theory to help explain the phenomena.

    May I ask you if during the presentation:

    1 – The Ecat SKL will be shown powered by the grid.
    2 – The Ecat SKL will be shown not powered by the grid.
    3 – Measuring instruments for voltages and currents will be inserted and shown.
    4 – All the above information will only be provided during the presentation.

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    I have been following the progress of the E-cat technology for several years and I believe it is very promising. Recently, I have been thinking about sharing it with my employer as a possible replacement for their energy needs. However, after reviewing the E-cat site to be sure of what I would be endorsing I came across a couple of videos with hand puppets in them promoting the technology. This is very unprofessional and even embarrassing. If you want your invention to be taken seriously you cannot be presenting it to potential clients with hand puppets. Please remove and avoid such things so that people can have confidence that this technology is worthy of their attention and money.

    Thank you for your time,

    – Shane

    Dear Andrea,

    Within your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    you mention creation of neutral proton-electron structures. And later you refer to pico-metric neutral aggregates when referring to the Vassallo paper “Electron Structure, Ultra-Dense Hydrogen and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions” in JCMNS Vol 29.

    Do you believe the pico-metric neutral aggregate structures created are potentially stable over a long time period until further acted on to force a change in state, i.e. after initial formation do not subsequently change state spontaneously?

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  102. Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    The energy of the pico-metric electron-proton aggregates should be very stable, if we consider only the binding energy, but the very low entropy of these hypothetical structures, with phase-locked electrons, is however a possible source of instability.

    A.R.

    Dear Andrea

    I imagine you are very focused on the e-cat SKL these days. But.

    The recent issues with the Corona virus makes me wonder if the e-cat or one of its derivatives could help mitigate these kinds of issues in the future.

    This might be best targeted at medical use or where people are dense clusters.

    Obviously readily available power and thermal heat when and where it is needed is already a plus.

    But thinking about the E-cat SK. If I recall right It generates a lot of Intense and localized UV that is then thermalised.

    Could we have a e-cat derivative a kind of e-cat SK UV. That generates this intense UV that can then be used to sterilize equipment and the environment.

    It would depend I suppose if it was better to have this UV source directly. Or indirectly generated from a UV lamp generated by electricity. The advantage of the e-cat might be greater intensity more localized source that is also broad spectrum rather than at particular wave lengths.

    How could it be used:

    1. Doctors are in the frontline doing a critical job. That we depend on. Their equipment and clothing could be regularly and easily sterilized with a small local and portable device. Hope fully protecting them and reducing the risk of contamination in a vulnerable environment.

    2. It could be incorporated in air conditioning to clean the air which would be important if it’s air born.

    3. It could be included in water supply and sanitary piping hopefully reducing the risk of contamination in appartment blocks or other places such as working environments, schools and hospitals where water born contamination through piping could occur.

    4. Food could be treated especially where it is centrally processed, in a canteen or th food manufactur.

    I guess there are others.

    It might have other benefits outside this Health type crisis especially when combined with heat and power for waste management and recycling. Whether that’s food, water, air, or materials such as plastics and metals. Perhaps even Carbon dioxide splitting that might be useful in some cases such as in the Space station or nano carbon production technologies.

    I wonder if it worth considering? Or even possible?

    Best Regards

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Great news! So after updating the software with the new component, there should be no obstacles to running the test.

    1 – Has the test already started?
    2 – At the end of the test (presumably by the end of March as said), will a generic statement on the outcome (positive, negative) be issued before the demonstration?
    3 – Will the demonstration physically show the SKL?
    4 – In this case, will the reactor be shown switched off or in operation?

    Kind Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    One strange idea came to my mind after a heady weekend that is not directly connected with scientific issues but with your future presentation.
    There are two options exists. The first option. You are tired to wait when ECAT SKL will be fully ready for industrial implementation, and you are ready to present the most preliminary positive results just now, and only then, without haste, bring it to mind. This is quite enough for the scientific community. For greater effect and to gather more interested parties, including those who can finance your development, the presentation can be held in some more convenient place – in France or Italy (Switzerland is also suitable), preferably on the coast, in Nice, for example.
    After all, the most important thing you have already done by creating the previous version of the ECAT, and the novel one. Thereby you have removed psychological clamps from all of us and now we can potentially create something similar or even better by other methods and in other scientific areas (transmutation of elements, antigravity, generation of anti-entropic flows, novel materials, etc.) And we don’t even need to know all your know-how at that case. We thank you for that.
    The second option – everything is ready and independent expert commission conducted successful tests of ECAT SKL and gave a positive conclusion for the start of production and industrial implementation. In this case you do not need to conduct any public presentation in Stockholm to receive additional support – it will be enough presentation on the internet. Especially, if you show your top secret team from afar. In addition you will save a lot of money.
    Best regards,
    Aleksei

  134. Hi Andrea, I know that you haven’t used the term “F9” for a while, but you coined the term on this blog, and it was shorthand to mean “the results of the test could be positive or negative.”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wqu2D2ae8U

    Anyway the silly short musical film written about the term “F9” will be screened at the Toronto GeekFest Festival on Friday evening, and they were nice enough to invite me to attend. I wanted to extend the invitation to any Toronto-based readers of your blog.

    Dear Andrea,

    Is there any chance we could get a very brief interim report from the testing group before the final presentation is made?

    Basically, something like..

    “We verify that for x amount of time we measured x amount of power going into the E-Cat SKL and x amount going out for a COP of x.”

    PlasmaFan:

    Thank you Andrea for you great efforts.
    I am having trouble understanding how software can be running in your 10x10x10cm cube.
    This would require a tiny microcontroller of FPGA module which must be supplied with constant voltage.
    That seems at odds with the fact that it runs closed loop, as you say.
    Such a device would be revolutionary, even forgetting the energy generation aspects.
    You must have the very finest engineers on the planet.
    I believe these people must be very proud of your collective work, and would be anxious to make their contributions known.
    Will you ask at least one of your team to come public and vouch for the fact that they are working for you?
    That would do wonders to help progress your acceptance.
    If I was working for you I would be so proud and would do anything to help.

    @Eric Ashworth: My reply is “I think we are in agreement that one successful demonstration is enough for claiming the phenomenon exists. My concern is when the first demonstration results in a failure, the expert or person has to consider how many times further demonstrations result in failure that the expert declare not to wait and claim the demonstration is a failure. My paper says that if the expert starts from not knowing whether the phenomenon exists or not (with a probability of a half), then for 95% confidence level, the expert should wait for at least 5 trials for a successful demonstration. If none of the 5 trials result in any successful demonstration, then the expert is entitled to claim that the demonstration has failed with 95% confidence level and leave. Otherwise, if any one of the 5 trials is a success, then the demonstration is considered as a success. I hope this clarifies the issue. Thank you.”

    Keith T,

    Thank you for your reply and your reference to the Aharonov- Bohm effect. Now I understand. My own understanding is that magnetic fields at the level of field density can be considered physical to that which operates at that same particular level of density i.e. relativity.

    The Aharonov-Bohm effect demonstrates the ability of a magnetic field to act as a barrier/deflector towards incoming particles. It could be referred to as a ’buckler’ as it can buckle particles out of the way (the term buckler is a very ancient reference to a magnetic shield and its use is described in a very ancient book to help describe the make-up of a mechanism).

    There are two types of drive systems that stem from the understanding of nuclear physics, one is mechanical and the other electro magnetic allowing one vehicle to have a binary system of propulsion, necessity for any vehicle that enters and exits the Earths atmosphere. To understand how to manufacture such a vehicle it is necessary to understand atomic physics at the nuclear level i.e. the make-up of the atom which is, as known, comprised of electrical potential. The E.M. drive i.e. electro magnetic, the U.F.O. i.e. unifying field oscillator and LENRs i.e. low energy nuclear reactions are all of the same subject i.e. physical/atomic and the wave i.e. none physical in comparison to the atom as understood. However, the atom is an admixture and thereby represents a neutral. Everything in our existence i.e. tangible to us has to be neutral because we are a product of neutrality and therefore being intelligent we can investigate this neutral world but only in the physical which is neutral i.e. the now. Basically it’s the purpose of life i.e. to investigate. The subject is too deep to discuss here but anything that is neutral has to exist in two dimensions at once and believe it or not does exist in two different dimensions regarding densities which relate to time zones within alternating occasions. Anyway your line of investigation is relevant to this subject being nuclear physics. The Coulomb Barrier is a magnetic shield that oscillates to insulate the proton/protons and provide the atom i.e. proton/s and electron/s being the Coulomb Barrier with a system of identity i.e. a stand alone unit in a sea of similar units.

    The atom is a manufactured unit from the other dimension/time zone i.e. the outer wave dimension of its progenitors field and thereby this subject is directly related to the GOD concept and represents as stated the final frontier in physics which is why it cannot be revealed to the general public who have no use for the understanding and resultant technology. the understanding has to be used for a specific purpose/purposes and Andrea as far as I am aware is the only independent researcher who has such a purpose besides myself.
    Obviously there’ll be those who disagree and those that say it’s not possible to put the E Cat into a self sustain mode just as those before said you could not overcome the Coulomb Barrier. Such people should not be involved in science, physics or technology. All it takes is a mutual understanding between like minds who see to advance science and technology.
    Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    One other related question: if the plasma to electricity parts prove to be unreliable, but do sometimes work for long periods of time, would it be feasible to perform a public demonstration simultaneously of say 50 of your latest ecats that utilize plasma to electricity production, which most of those 50 ecats will likely malfunction during the public demonstration but it would also be likely at least some would complete the public demo (which would prove your technology beyond any doubt due to the closed loop nature of the demo), would that be beneficial for attracting investment funding for further refining the ecat from either public or private sources?

  162. Andrea Rossi

    @Eric Ashworth,

    I would agree that abbreviations should be avoided. Normally I am careful with my wording, obviously this time I failed. AB effect = Aharonov-Bohm effect, my post was a clarification of my previous post from the day before. I was referring to the possible nuclear influence of the magnetic vector potential, that if a sufficiently strong potential was present local to a Hydrogen atom, there may be interactions that lead to nuclear effect.

    A few weeks ago I posted speculation that on a far larger scale the magnetic vector potential may in some way interact with electromagnetics that could provide the propelling force of the EmDrive, my last post regarding the smallest of scales is unconnected with this.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If the longevity of the parts used for converting plasma to electricity cannot be attained, will you consider refocusing the ecat back to retro-fitting gas turbines for centralized grid electricity production?

    To all,
    I assume that Andrea has contracted a company very capable of doing these kind of tests and that there is no need to suggest the how to do it.
    In ALL cases they need to ensure there is no hidden battery of any kind, or if the can’t look inside, to ensure that the energy supplied exceeds any chemical reaction energy in the given volume.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea,

    1) There’s a stage of self organization of a complex space charge configuration in a DC electrical discharge in which new double layers are continuously ejected and re-formed. I’m thinking that this mode might amplify the power of the ion acoustic waves which could make it more suitable for harvesting. Have you ever observed this mode of a pulsating fireball?

    2) Have you considered attempting to harvest the longitudinal waves produced from the fireball by utilizing a similar sized spherical resonator cavity in close proximity to the device? This should work like a Tesla coil in that the pulsating fireball would act like the top globe of a Tesla transmitter. If an identically sized metal sphere with a tunable circuit was placed in proximity, you should be able to draw off power. You could even have multiple such receivers around the E-Cat SKL.

    Thanks.

    Dear Andrea,

    I agree with Long Time Follower. If you can have a third party verify a significant amount of thermal output with very little input in a non-closed loop mode, go ahead and have the presentation. Then after establishing that as an undeniable fact show some data from the run that collected electrical output. You don’t have to prove all the future (even near term) potential of the technology. Instead, just try to establish in the minds of the audience that the technology produces a massive excess of total energy beyond any doubt whatsoever.

    One request I would make of the third party is to show that each reaction (even if it is not nuclear) is producing more energy in eV than would be possible if the hydrogen was under going chemical reactions (a few eV) or even some sort of supra-chemical reaction (200+ eV). This would prove that your technology is clearly superior – even beyond LENR – because you are not consuming any significant amount of fuel over time. Even over a week of operation, I suspect that if you performed a calculation including the total number of hydrogen atoms and the energy produced by the reactor, the total energy per reaction would be in the millions of eV.

    Finally, I just wanted to ask if it is practical to extract energy from the plasma ball via the ion acoustic oscillations it produces that send current through the external circuit? If this is possible, I suspect it would be more practical for long term use than using sacrificial probes inserted into the plasma ball that would eventually be degraded by the unique conditions in the ballerina. I think what’s important is not to let any part of the reactor actually touch the plasma ball.

  175. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I agree with the suggestion of an open loop vs a closed loop demonstration. A closed loop will require a long enough operation time to eliminate stored chemical energy, such as a battery. But an open loop, sufficiently monitored and engineered, will provide a fast, easy to understand demonstration. The effective COP and the output power must be such to preclude a battery or other “cheat” methods.

    I would suggest two levels of output, a low and high level. Differencing the outputs and inputs would suggest the amount of power consumed by the controller and other constant consumption devices.

  176. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for the suggestion,

  177. Eric Ashworth

    Keith T, Your explanation to Andrea February 7th. I presume this is what you are inferring. A magnetic vector potential is a propelling force of a physical existence i.e. a hydrogen atom producing a force. Is the interior of the atom shielded from influence? i.e. a type of barrier. You say the AB effect demonstrates that an electron can be influenced. This is where you lose me, why abbreviate and use the term AB effect. If you explain this effect i.e. none abbreviation I could understand what you mean. This subject is technical and I cannot emphasize the importance of not abbreviating phenomenas. Every phenomena has a none abbreviation. Why use it when the subject is technical. I mention this because you are not the only person to abbreviate. With regards your question, I believe you are referring to the electro magnetic propulsion unit i.e. E.M. drive which I agree has little published information and which I consider off subject with regards the self sustaining mode of the E Cat and the requirement of a propulsion unit but I agree the subject is interesting.
    Regards Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea,

    Anyone who wants to suspect that there are hidden batteries will do so irrespective of whether or not it is plugged in to the grid. Don’t fall for that. Your main feature is that SKL does not need the grid. Showcase it.
    Regards,
    Patrick

  179. Long Time Follower

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Maybe it is better if in your presentation of the Ecat SKL you do not make the closed loop, because almost surely voices will be raised that there are hidden batteries or the like. I suggest to plug a power source and measure both the electricity the Ecat draws from the grid and the electricity that it produces: then it will be obvious that the COP is infinite, if the electricity produced is more than the electricity consumed.

    Dear Andrea,

    I am trying to piece together and understand, for a magnetic vector potential that has physical existence, if a hydrogen atom as a whole can be influenced by a sufficiently strong magnetic vector potential, if within a hydrogen atom the relationship between electron and proton can be influenced or is the interior of an atom somehow shielded from influence, the AB effect demonstrates that an electron can be influenced, can it still be influenced within the confines of a hydrogen atom, can the proton and its contents be influenced.

    There is very little on this subject to be found within published papers, if there is possibility of influence from the magnetic vector potential (or electric scalar potential) how can this be detected.

    All of this may or may not be part of ongoing investigations, hopefully it is, and hopefully any results can be shared in future papers.

    Dear Andrea,

    A. Is it possible a magnetic vector potential can surround and permeate an atom.

    B. If a magnetic vector potential Aharonov-Bohm effect experiment was repeated using single hydrogen atoms passing a long solenoid instead of electrons, would the same effect of increase and decrease of speed be seen for the atoms as was for electrons, the phase shift then producing an interference pattern.

    2) If You cannot say, which function it shall provide or support, can You,

    Bob Luk, O.K. I do need information and I think everyone contributing to the JONP is on the same page and therefore we are in agreement but depending upon ones life experiences we have different view points. My question now is how many times does one need to demonstrate a mechanism or an experiment to convince someone of its worth regarding a new discovery?.

    I was of the opinion that once would be sufficient but maybe it requires a specific number of times. I am unaware of any academic rules but I am interested to learn. With regards my own experience in R&D a first time failure was sufficient for me to think again and redesign until I got the result I required. What is the golden rule?. For me this is the strength of the JONP. Where else could I get a response and where else could I ask such a question as I do appreciate interaction on this important subject which I have been involved in for over twenty years.

  202. KeithT

    Dear Andrea

    For development or future use, is it possible to observe the plasma zone using ultra high speed, high resolution video and photography, filtered for the emission wavelengths of interest, focusing at different scales and even down to microscopic contents if possible. Observing start-up, running, shutdown, and if particular faults are known to occur from particular triggers observe these events also.

    The observed results may of use in development, but would be good for future publicity, the recent images of the surface of the sun showing the top of the convection cells were for scientific use but the public has certainly shown interest.

    Is this reliability issue due to any of the following:

    b) Wear and tear on any part of the device caused by the ballerina herself.
    c) Contamination of the gaseous mixture.
    d) Leakage of the gaseous mixture.

    Dear Dr. David Haws, dear Andrea,
    Thank you both for clearly posed questions and your concrete answer to understand the status of ECat SKL issues and hence, arising from it presentation. I think that you know better than me how to deal with this problem and my advice may seem trivial. Nevertheless, at the risk of being annoying and not even knowing the principle of generating electricity in your device, I would dare to give some advice regarding the solution to the problem of long-term reliability.
    Usually the solution lies in achieving uniformity of everything, sizes of structural elements (outer and inner) – tubes, etc, materials, fuel length, supplied electricity and its parameters, rates of change of power, etc., even taking into account the daily cycle and annual cycle (Shnoll’s and Nicolay Lazarev’s experiments showed a change in all parameters, even beta decay of up to 5%). Moreover, that we all are still imperfect in a full theoretical understanding of the Lenr effects.
    But the main attention should be paid to fuel and its components. Components (if you used the same) should be from the same batch, powder of one form and one monofraction. They should be preliminary mixed with high uniformity before placing into tube with control operations. Maybe also preliminary pressed in order not to lose its uniformity before placing into the tube.
    And one more very strange advice. Many years ago I prepared everything, but did not have time to apply it at my experimental stand, when I wanted to catch the characteristics of so called strange radiation. According to my assumption (maybe I am mistaken), strange radiation, generated by any LENR processes, should influence the course of time (slow down or accelerate it). For this, I used a frequency shift from a crystal oscillator placed in different places near the stand and outside it.
    Best wishes to you and to your team.
    Bonne chance!

    Dear Robert Luk, I read your paper ‘How to handle risky experiments producing uncertain phenomenon’ and found the content most interesting from the perspective of an independent researcher

    The paper implies that there are experts capable of ascertaining the credibility of a previously unknown phenomena based upon known accepted scientific principles. Where I find this process is flawed is how the procedure of investigation is handled entirely by these self appointed experts. There is a very simple way to ascertain the true worth of any phenomena and this is to sit with the person or persons who engineered the phenomenon from the original idea. Have them explain to the experts how this idea came to them, why they did what they did and then let them reproduce the experiment as they originally did with the experts looking on but not being involved with any part of the demonstration. If the phenomena is unable to be reproduced then everyone goes home and no more time is wasted. If the experiment produces conclusive proof of a useful phenomena then the experiment should be credited as a breakthrough and the person or persons being recognized for helping to usher in a new field of scientific discovery. it’s really not that difficult of an operation.

    My own experience with regards an important new technology is for these experts to say, no you are not allowed to demonstrate it because it is before its time. So this rests my case with certain new technologies and these experts within the establishment. The eminent Ruggero Santilli discovered this flawed system and so too did Fleishman and Pons whose wrong labelling over their experiment as cold fusion sealed their fate. My bi-polar unifying field oscillation technology was patented. My other technology an outgrowth of my original technology has not been patented as this too I consider a technology before its time until Andrea informed readers of the JONP of his desire to put his E Cat into a self sustain mode. The required technology I doubt will not be allowed, certainly not on ResearchGate but it will be interesting if it is able to be demonstrated. My own thoughts are that the experts will come in so fast, even before the project becomes initiated because of the far reaching abilities of the technology

    As we all sit and wait (with baited breath) for the SKL presentation and results of the independent test, I wonder if it would not be advantageous to publish the results of the current customers units in action.

    Its not necessary to publish the actual customer, but the usage, costs, costs savings, general details, time up time down, heat produced, something for the fans to talk about, process, to deliberate on, to get excited about.

    “Dear Andrea,
    When it will be possible to use the Ecat as a main energy source do you think it will be opportune to maintain the grid as a backup ?
    Warm Regards,
    Chuck Davis”

    Given the problems with the grid, among them cost and terrorism, might it not be better to back up Ecats, where that is essential, with another, or several other, Ecats?

    It seems to me that one of the great advantages of Ecats is likely to be to dispense entirely, eventually, with the grid, and focus on local power generation. This way the supposed potential terrorist threat to bring the entire system down would be eliminated. Terrorists might succeed in bringing down one city, but not the entire country?

    Dear Andrea,
    In the reprocessing of spent fuel for either the E-Cat SK or E-Cat SKL:
    1. Would you know the percentage left of the spent fuel that could be recycled?
    2. Would it be more efficient and less costly to create from scratch new fuel or cheaper to supplement it with reprocessed spent fuel?
    3. You once mentioned you would reprocess spent fuel to collect isotopes. Do you still have plans for this should there be any accumulated isotopes? Thank you.
