    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi
    Whattaya think of the replication of Me356?
    You didn’t answer.
    Godspeed,
    Irving

    Dear Andrea,

    reading some of me356 posts, give me an idea. To extend SSM time, the ECats or the QuarkX can be operated in a molten salt bath, the kind used in solar concentration plants (or others if 550C is not enough). The high thermal capacity of the bath can extend the SSM period, by not letting the fuel cool down. I don’t know if you already found a way to have long SSM with load (e.g. heating water up to steam), but if not, this can be a mean.

    Marco

  5. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    We already had a long SSM with a load. Thank you for your suggestion.

  26. Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I discovered in the internet that you have been allowed a patent from the USPTO in 2000, precisely the patent US6051110, allowed on April 18th 2000.
    The title of the patent is “Thermolytic distillationof carbonaceous material”. It is interesting that in the year 2000 you were working in the USA with your original “Rossi Process” to turn wastes into fuel and you have been granted a patent in the USA for it! This gives further evidence of how your work was serious.
    Godspeed,
    Jack

  27. Andrea Rossi

    Jack:
    Yes, but that for me is archeology…I am focused exclusively on LENR stuff since 2008.
    Thank you anyway for offering me a good memory: I made that patent and after that Leonardo Corp manufactured and sold a plant based on that patent. The patent has been co-authored between me and Mr William Dellorfano, who was the owner of the business that eventually used the technology.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  28. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Thank you for your answer to Miguel. Please allow me another question about that:
    You must have done this test in the expectation that it would lead to further commercial activities for the Leonardo Company. Is it right to assume that the following test and sold first 1MW plant was a result of that successful preliminary test?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  30. Miguel

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is it true that during a day in 2010 you made a test with the NRL in a laboratory of Washington, DC?
    A top level officer of the NRL has written recently that the test was impressive ad that if it was a hoax it was a damn good one!
    Can you describe?
    Cheers,
    Miguel

  31. Andrea Rossi

    Miguel:
    Yes, the day you are referring to happened in the Summer of 2011, in a Laboratory connected with NRL. I brought there my E-Cat and they mounted it in a rack of theirs to make their calorimetric measurements. A specialist of NRL measured the electricity consume by means of an oscilloscope of NRL, while several thermocouples set up by them measured the temperature of the water before and after the E-Cat. A flowmeter measured the flow of water. The test during the first day measured a difference of temperature that corresponded to a production of about 1 kWh/h of energy, while after half an hour from the start up ( around 9 A.M.) the system is gone in SSM ( Self Sustained Mode ) and the amount of the input of electricity consumed by the E-Cat has been zero for all the day.
    The electricity consumed amount has been measured exclusively by means of the oscilloscope brought there by the specialist of NRL.
    This is what happened during that day.

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure you will like beautiful modern cars like almost every Italian. Please read this:
    http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-geneva-motor-show/techrules-turbine-recharging-ev-supercar-confirmed-geneva
    The issue is though, that the Cinese seem to have succeded in developing an efficient micro turbine/ generator combination. This in combination with a battery system and six electro motors gives them a car with very interesting properties. (Just look to the fuel consumption of 80 liters for 1200 miles!!)
    I am sure that if the QuarkX can be build into this micro turbine the properties of this car will allow you to drive multiple times around the world without refueling (if you can find the time for it). Maybe a chat with the Chinese developers leads to a wonderful future…
    Kind regards, Gerard

  38. Frederic Maillard

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    When your E-Cats are on the market for massive distribution :

    1) will your company be the sole supplier of the E-Cat manufacturers with the necessary fuel ?

    2) will your company be the sole buyer of nickel from nickel producers, in order to prepare the fuel for E-Cats ?

    3) will the nickel producers have to do some transformations of characteristics you will request on the nickel you will purchase from them ?

    4) do you think the price of nickel per unit bought from the nickel producers will be significantly higher than its standard market price due to the transformations made by them ?

    5) do you have any idea to what extent for 4) ?

    Thank you in advance for your answers,
    Best wishes

  49. Jean Pierre

    Dear Andrea.
    Thank you for your reply. For the demonstration of the Qx in both dummy and active modes, might I suggest that both systems have tanks, pipes ,heat exchangers, etc made from transparent materials?
    The heat exchangers will certainly require good insulation.
    Perhaps they could be enclosed in a box-like structure that can be quickly and easily removed at the end of the experiment so that the tv observers can see through the heat exchanger itself to the Qx. The box could have a hinged flap that could be easily opened. I am thinking of the sort of thing that the Searle’s Bar experiment utilises—–the experiment done by students of pre-university. Perhaps this notion has already occurred to you; if so, I apologise to you for this unnecessary email.
    Best wishes. Jean Pierre.

  50. Andrea Rossi

    Jean Pierre:
    I do not think it will be possible, because the test will be made by means of calorimetry measuring the temperature difference of a fluid inside the heat exchanger and the QuarkX is inside the heat exchanger that must be externally well insulated and shielded.

    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Reading the interview in the link below with Dr. Focardi very is interesting. From what he recounts it sounds like you and he worked very closely for some years. Where do you think your progress with the E-Cat and QuarkX would be at the moment without his contributions?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  59. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    I learnt very much from the 4 years I worked with Prof Sergio Focardi, especially in terms of nuclear physics. He also has given to me confiance in myself: before our collaboration I was simply convinced that I had necessarily to be wrong, since nobody agreed with me. The matter of the fact is that initially I simply asked him to explain to me why I was wrong, thinking I did not know that why, but surely there was one.
    Probably, without his collaboration I would have not abandoned my traditional work in that period ( make oil and electricity with vegetables ), starting to dedicate 100% of my time to the LENR R&D.
    Then, thanks to him we had the possibility to make experiments with ENEL, the main electric power provider of Italy: from ENEL I learnt how to measure the energy produced by a water heating system ( see the first paper Focardi-Rossi ).
    Prof Focardi was a giant: Professor of mathematics at the Normale of Pisa, Prof of nuclear physics at the University of Bologna, Dean of Scientific Matters at the University of Bologna, where he founded the Department of the Unibo of Cesena, director of a group at the CERN of Geneva, where he also worked with the Nobel laureate Prof Carlo Rubbia, etc, etc.

    Gravitons are produced by the gravitational interactions, which are too weak to be detected even in a collider as powerful as the CERN’s LHC. In some exotic theories, though, gravity is effectively strong at high energies, albeit unlikely as this might be.

  71. domenico canino

    Dear Andrea,

    what do you think about this opinion of Sergio Focardi on atomic hydrogen in your e cat?
    From 22 passi di Daniele Passerini.

    [Male interviewer] Isn’t that the famous powder mentioned earlier?

    Yes, there is the nickel powder, then there’s hydrogen and then there’s this chemical compound. The issue came up during that demonstration because, when some people tried to measure the gamma rays, Rossi objected, because by measuring the gamma rays they would have also measured the gamma rays emitted by this secret compound, and so they would have understood what it was, what was in it.

    [Male interviewer] What was in the compound…

    Yes, and it’s part of the patent. And the purpose of this secret compound is, I believe, to facilitate the formation of atomic hydrogen instead of molecular hydrogen, because hydrogen typically settles down in molecules, but if one has a molecule, it can not penetrate into the nucleus. So I think the additive is used to this purpose: it forms atomic hydrogen, which penetrates into the nucleus.

    [Male interviewer] It penetrates into the nucleus…This is my interpretation, because Rossi did not tell me, nor have I asked him.Of course, looking at the [gamma] rays one can recognize it (and it will be a chemical compound, not just an element) and find out its components … this perhaps is still not enough … there may be more than two … perhaps in different proportions.

    Thanks if you can answer
    regards

    Dear Andrea,

    Recently, someone said on another forum that no one has been able to replicate your effect. In my opinion, this is totally false. In response to this certain person’s comment that no had been able to replicate the Rossi Effect, another poster mentioned the replication performed by the Russian group of Stepanov, Malahov, and Quoc. In addition to the replications by Parkhomov, Songsheng, and others, this replication provides additional evidence countering the assertion the Rossi Effect has never been replicated.

  87. Hank Mills

    Gilda,

    My hope is that these replication trials will not only show massive excess heat, but the report writers will describe in detail what they feel enabled the excess heat effect. Basically, they need to not only produce excess heat but run a series of tests to see what parameters improve and/or kill the effect. Songsheng already produced hours of self sustained operation at extremely high temperatures; his results were the most impressive yet. However, his lack of continual repetitive follow up testing to nail down WHY he was able to achieve such great results (when most replicators do not) didn’t assist the replicator community. Basically, his test confirmed that excess heat CAN be generated with a combination of Ni, LiAlH4, and in his case sometimes added H2 from a tank. It also confirmed the reality that even with only HEAT and DC power (without fancy stimulation techniques) the nature of the Ni-H technology is to SELF SUSTAIN. What would have been a hundred times better, however, would have been for him to perform more tests that would show HOW it was working instead of just THAT it was working. If the information on HOW to get it working were to be shared in detail, many more replicators could have success. And with something as controversial as LENR/Cold Fusion, it takes many successful results to break through the walls of cynicism and intentional denial.

  88. Hank Mills

    Andrea,

    Nuances, or subtle changes to one parameter, influence countless other factors in an experiment. While some basic themes of a system seem to be permanently fixed, in reality making a change to another element of the test can require a whole series of new considerations that will influence decision making processes. If a test element (figuratively or literally) is adjusted or replaced, the usage of pressure, heat, and stimulation may have to be re-thought. A seemingly overall solid system can otherwise fail to perform. Duration and magnitudes of pressure, vacuum, temperature, mixing, and pulsating may all require significant tweaking. Without experience and know how from extensive testing, resulting in an in-depth understanding of the interactions between the components of a complex system, success can be scarce.

    I conclude that your ability to design and build working Ni-H devices is a direct consequence of the work you’ve put into testing them for the last decade. A binder of detailed auto-repair instructions cannot transform a person with a broken down car into a professional service mechanic. Likewise, an E-Cat replicator performing a couple of one-off tests is unlikely to achieve excess heat. For a single individual to master proper selection of powders, fuel handling, preparation, mixing, loading, thermal cycling, and stimulation (while avoiding a dozen possible pitfalls) requires the extreme dedication and work ethic that you’ve demonstrated. I’ve came to the conclusion that your level of intense concentrated focus is particularly difficult to find.

    My hope is that not-for-profit replicators with the desire to openly share their methods and findings will emerge that have even a portion of your work ethic. Regardless of the arguments, fighting, and verbal bar room brawls taking place on various forums, I still feel a deep desire to see your technology accepted as concrete reality by the world. There’s a hundred different side issues I’m unsure about. And with the air thick with hostility with accusations flying in all directions, the increasing acrid environment seems to etch away at every untainted patch of innocence on the clothing of everyone involved: from the litigants, to forum participants with agendas, to ordinary forum users who feel bewildered and confused. I’m no different. On multiple occasions, I’ve found myself caught up in heated discussions, letting the emotions of the crowd influence me in ways I later realized were unacceptable. Primarily, because there is no excuse for disrespect and coarse, hurtful words. Secondly, because like almost everyone else except the principles involved, I have few facts to go on. In June, that may change when we on the outside see the full picture — not only a handful of emails.

    Then reality strikes me. Through the layers of dirt and grime falling from the sky (raining down and adhering the clothing of the just, the unjust, and everyone in between) I see a silvery letter “E” on the back of a man’s jacket. As I approach, I see that this bold capital letter seems to repel the falling dust and ash, remaining bright and reflective. The highly polished nickel letter turns out to be part of a word, “E-Cat.” A moment later, the man turns around, and I recognize him to be you. Notebook in one hand, vial of powder in the other, and a stethoscope around his neck, the man simply nods before saying, “Thank you for your continued attention. I must get back to work now — my reactors must be attended.” The figure then walks through the midst of an angry crowd, opens a door revealing a laboratory inside, and enters. For a moment, through the crack of the door, I believe I see an elderly figure standing at one of the lab benches, taking a measurement. The second I am reminded of Sergio Focardi’s early dedication to the testing of your technology, you secure the entrance.

    The bright letter “E” is all that matters now. Enormously Energetic, Extremely Economical, Enviously Environmentally Friendly: regardless of any outcome or future scenario, the reality of the E-Cat technology must be demonstrated for the sake of the entire world. My hope is that this happens in the very near future via repeated replications by multiple parties, showing self sustained production of heat.

    Please forgive this rambling from someone who feels torn and pulled in multiple directions, with only the overall reality of your nickel-hydrogen technology to keep him hanging on. It literally has turned into the sole source of light in a gloomy cave, filled with angry bitter souls scratching at each other. By keeping focused on that light, I hope I can avoid losing what remains of myself and becoming one of them.

    Hank

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    The puppets paid by IH are writing that the ERV has used a water flowmeter that is not fit for the flow at the temperature it has been used for.
    Can you comment?
    Warm Regards,
    DT

  110. Andrea Rossi

    DT:
    In pursue of precise directions from my Attorneys, I cannot comment on issues that will find due evidence in Court.
    Also this issue will find the due answers and evidence in Court; any comment before such disclosure is simply a tongue-air-displacing system, like disputing about the gender of the angels. Not having serious evidence to present in Court, IH is trying to make the trial in the blogs instead, trying to create a negatively oriented bias against us. Everybody is free to choose the strategy he deems more appropriate for the situations he has to deal with. We have chosen to give base to our litigation exclusively on the evidence that will be disclosed in Court.

    Dear Andrea,
    Just speculating: It may be possible that combining the QuarkX with a heat storage device you can make it much more efficient for some applications or maybe it can help it to start-up and make it independent of the grid: The molten silicon heat storage device: http://www.motoring.com.au/adelaide-firm-claims-battery-breakthrough-105950/

    In respect to your statement: “we do not need an intermittent operation” appears to state a continuous input power and signal is applied to the QX and its power output is controlled by adjusting:
    1.) input amplitude power?
    2.) input signal amplitude?
    3.) input signal frequency?
    4.) flow rate through modules?
    5.) Combination of the above?
    6.) Other?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you familiar with the leptonic Magnetic Monopole concept of Georges Lochak, (Fondation Louis De Broglie Paris, France)?

    I must apologize to you because you are quite busy with your QuarkX validation work and your extensive legal efforts in Florida.

    Nevertheless, I found the article about the effect of the Lochak ‘Monopole’ on atoms to be quite unusual (presuming it to be true) and something you or Professor Norman Cook may have encountered while studying LENR theories, the Reverse Mossbauer Effect et cetera.

    http://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/LochakGlowenergyn.pdf

    Do you think reports of Titanium 48 (or other isotopes) disappearance/transmutation are credible and do you have to take the existence of such an exotic particle seriously to protect against power excursions or overheating?

    It should be relatively easy to verify or deny the existence of this particle and its possible effects. In view of the fact that it may have contributed to the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986 (despite official accident reports), it may be of some importance.

    https://arxiv.org/ftp/nucl-ex/papers/0304/0304024.pdf

    Curious regards,

  157. Andrea Rossi

    Arnulfo Gradillas:
    Italy is a wonderful Country, with three thousand years of History. Wherever you go in Italy you are at walk distance from a site worth to be visited. I am from Milan and in Milan there is the most beautiful Gothic Cathedral of Europe, but if this is your first trip to Italy and you have only 4 days, my suggestion is to visit Venice, Florence and Rome, whose artistic and cultural legacy is infinite. You can travel between these towns with high speed trains that can transport you from Venice to Florence in 2 hours, from Florence to Rome in 1 hour, from Venice to Rome in 3 hours, leaving you in the center of each of these towns.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    when an elementary particle travels at the speed of light, does it change shape?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Olene

  161. Andrea Rossi

    Olene Goetz:
    You must make a distinction between Fermions and Bosons.
    Bosons ( like gravitons, photons ) to not carry matter, they carry force, therefore they have not shape. They travel at the speed of light.
    Fermions ( like protons, neutrons, electrons ) carry matter and cannot reach the speed of light, can just go close to it; when they reach a speed close to c, based on the Relativity theory their shape flattens, like a ball that becomes a disk, with the line of the direction perpendicular to the center of the disk.

    I think that the patent is the worst invention of mankind’s history.
    There is also a book : Against Intellectual Monopoly – by Michele Boldrin and David K. Levine.

    (stubborn and obstinate make lawyers rich).
    Are you sure that the road is this?

  181. Dear Andrea:

    I think what may be lurking in the background in the minds of Bernie and Gerard in their very recent posts here has been lurking in my mind also:

    When we hear from an arms-length customer of yours that he has been operating one of your devices for several months and it has been generating multiple times more energy than the input energy applied, we will all be heading out to celebrate, not just with Champagne, but with VINTAGE Champagne! We are all looking forward very much to this event, and certainly hope it will be soon.

    While I understand that such an event will not depend solely on you, is there reason why it would need to be delayed until after the legal issues have been resolved? Indeed, might it not constitute a trump card in the legal proceedings? Or perhaps an ‘ace’ of a type of which only your wife is capable?

    Wishing you God’s assistance on your side, and God’s speed, in all the activities currently taking up your time.

    Dr Rossi, Now there comes a new claim that Boeing tested the Ecat for/with IH, and it did not work for them, were you present during this demonstration?

  196. Andrea Rossi

    Darius:
    I never knew of this demo and I do not know with which apparatus it has been done. I apprehended of it during the litigation. The replications and tests I have been informed of from September 2013 through February 2016 are the ones on the base of which Cherokee Fund Partners-IH have collected 250 millions in UK and China. No further comment.
    Warm Regards,

    Hello dr. Rossi:
    it seems that even the Boing is working on cold fusion.
    Boeing patents laser-powered fusion-fission jet engine (that’s truly impossible)
    Lasers fuse hydrogen, causing uranium to fission, which generates electricity.
    Boeing has received a patent for, I kid you not, a laser-powered fusion-fission jet propulsion system. Boeing envisions that this system could replace both rocket and turbofan engines, powering everything from spacecraft to missiles to airplanes.
    The patent, US 9,068,562, combines inertial confinement fusion, fission, and a turbine that generates electricity. It sounds completely crazy because it is.

  215. Kraig

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    IH has published reports that say that the data measured by Fabiani are equal to the data measured from the ERV, which gives evidence that the data are fake.
    Can you comment?

  216. Andrea Rossi

    Kraig:
    I think everybody has noticed that we do not comment issues to be discussed in Court, while IH- Cherokee Fund Partners try to raise mud in the blogs. Any comment on this fact is useless.
    In general, let me say that if you measure data with two certified instrumentations on the same thing in the same point or close, obviously the data are the same, unless one of the instruments is nuts.
    I am not referring to the specific case, but in general. The specific case will be discussed upon in Court.
    As I said, we have plenty of evidence to confirm the data of the report in Court and I am very optimist about what is emerging in evidence in the proper site.

  225. Abdul Siebenthal

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About “fundamental fields” in Physics, being the electromagnetic field, the weak force field, the strong force field, the gravitational field: can you explain by one of your simple models ho we can visualize these fields and the forces through which they work? Why are they called “fundamental”?
    Thank you if you have the time to answer,
    Abdul

  226. Andrea Rossi

    Abdul Siebenthal:
    It is not easy to give a visual model of concepts that are rigorously mathematics, but let’s try this: consider the Universe like an ocean, initially flat-calm, inside which there are lurking different kinds of currents whose force interacts with different entities. Imagine that when a current appears, it breaks the symmetry that kept the water calm, so that masses of current produce waves in a specific “field”.
    We have Currents in the gravitational field of this ocean, that affect all the particles contained in the ocean; we have Currents in the weak force field, that affect all the elementary particles of the Standard Model and the Higgs Boson; we have Currents in the strong force field, that affect gluons and quarks; finally we have Currents in the electromagnetic field, that affect the positive particles one way and the negative the opposite way. The bumps of the waves correspond to the stable elementary particles; when the waves resonate, they generate the virtual particles.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  248. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Without replying about specific performance of your current or previous ecat reactors, do you consider units operating under your design to have the performance function that the difficulty of control remains the same though out the fuel time of the reactor. Specifically:

    a. Control is easier at the beginning of the fuel consumption and then more difficult as fuel is consumed?
    b. The difficulty of control remains about constant over the life of the fuel?
    c. The difficulty of control is the most at the beginning and end of the fuel life and relatively easier in the middle of the fuel consumption?
    d. none of the above?

  249. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The difficulty of control is intrinsic of the matter, in every phase.

    A.R.

    Good Day Andrea:

    I wish to congratulate you on your efforts towards 5-Sigma.

    I suggest the following as part of your defense at the upcoming trial.

    I believe you understand the essentials of TQM and Process Control.
    A few days ago, a Gerard McEk posted a graphical display of the daily COPs from the 1-year test at E-Cat World.
    Link>> https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e24379d910aa9c0fbad649586cf21aa04d3181335f2008b3384a7f77d5d8dc65.png

    You have over the years spoken of your daily effort to improve the control (software & hardware) of the original e-Cat and the QuarkX.

    As you lived the 1-year test, you likely have seen the apparent change in value of the standard deviation at about day 175 of the 1-year test. And you likely recognize that there are only 3 major transitions from one average COP to another before the end of the 1-year test starting at day 175; one can visually assess a dramatic reduction in the COP variability as compared to the first 175 days.

    I point this out as a form of proof of the real change in the performance criteria of controllability and stability. If memory serves me, you have repeatedly mentioned every so often real improvements in the e-Cat performance.

    This reduction in the variability and the standard deviation is an example of TQM and Process Control . . . and consequently is a strong example of your and your team’s successful efforts towards 5-Sigma ! ! !

    Best wishes,

    Buck

    Hello dr. Red a few days ago the Commission of Production Activities of the Italian Chamber of Deputies has discussed the financing of DTT.
    Specifically, the ITER is a deuterium-tritium reactor in which the plasma confinement is obtained in a magnetic field inside a machine called Tokamak. Initially the project included the lighting of tokamak (the so-called ignition of the First Plasma) for 2019, to a total estimated construction cost of 10 billion euros. ITER is an experimental reactor, whose main purpose is the achievement of a stable fusion reaction (500 MW products for a period of about 60 minutes) validating and, if possible, increasing the current knowledge on plasma physics.

    Your Hot Cat is easier to build, cheaper and has a much higher COP.

    In regards to the switch from intermittent to constant…

    1) Did the COP go up, down, or stay the same?
    2) Did the operating temperature go up, down, or stay the same?
    3) Is it now possible to operate the Quark for a period of time with zero input (true self sustain)?

    Thanks,

    Dear Andrea,
    I am very much impressed of the performance of the 1 MW plant. I know you are not allowed to say anything about this, but I wonder why you have not started the full speed production of these plants, as they are really a goldmine. Instead you are developing a QuarkX, which has probably even more potential, but may require also much more time to get it into production. Can you please give us some insight of what moves you in this?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  265. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    The E-Cat is not an alternative to the QuarkX.

    Cheers,

  267. Chris Beall

    Dr. Rossi,

    Setting aside IP issues for the moment, what are the barriers for someone to replicate the QuarkX?

    For example: If you were to arrive at a small mid-western town, with your memory intact but no equipment, none of the members of your current team, and a budget of, say $10,000, would you be able to create a QuarkX using local talent and tools and materials available from the local hardware store, pharmacy, etc.?

    Or are exotic materials, processes not readily available, or exotic skills required?

  268. Andrea Rossi

    Chris Beall:
    to make an experimental apparatus just to replicate the effect I could settle for what you are proposing somewhere, doesn’t matter where.
    To make an industrial product the situation is totally different and, obviously, what I am engaged now with is in projection of an industrial production.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  269. D.T.

    Dear Andrea:
    Tom Darden has fooled his investors saying IH now has a portfolio of LENR technologies in substitution of your IP, but didn’t say that your technology is real and working, while all he has without the license of your patents is worth zero. This way he is trying to steal the money he owes you, paying peanuts to other guys, or paying them with “millions” in shares that are worth nothing. But I think he is strongly underestimating his foe.

  274. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Koen Vandewalle brings to bear many enlightenment’s in his thoughts on time/benefit/investor/value concepts. I have never been able to present my own opinion that your power is truly to be found in distributed marketing vs industrial marketing.

    You are currently imprisoned by Industrial Heat, aka Cherokee et al, and cannot even function as an inventor for the foreseeable future. This is common in the USA. You will not be allowed by the wealthy to succeed. It costs them money. If they convince you to “integrate your product into all of the existing energy patterns”, they can stop you by not buying the product, and continuing to deny that it works – regardless of the fact that it really works or how many lawsuits you may win (or lose).

    Enslaved populations today must find freedom through new corporations. New corporations in our time era can prevail in revolutions, look at Apple Computer, and Tesla Automotive as examples.

    Elon Musk (aka Tesla) is bringing us into space travel and off world colonization on his bare back. Nothing else, just faith that his ideas provide the greater good for the population at large, not just the wealthy monsters in this world.

    Tesla’s funding was stopped. His equipment and lab was burned down by J.P Morgan together with the related intellectual property because it posed a threat to undercutting the cost of the conventional electricity grid system. If Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower Project had been allowed to flourish and not be destroyed then today we could well be living in a utopia.

    These same forces fight to prevent you from being ‘certified’ right now to change the world, because the rulers like JP Morgan (aka Cherokee) forbid this to happen – EVER.

    The Wright brothers fled to France, where their invention was welcome. I think you know right now at least one country where your invention is welcomed with open arms. (psst “Sweden perhaps?”)

    As always, may we remember that “In God we Trust”. I do mean that literally. Nothing we do in our lives has any meaning if we do not put faith in our Almighty Father, and act in accord with HIS laws.

    None of this really has to do with your court case, Andrea. It has to do with fundamental concepts. Do not let the ruler of this system fool you into failing because of his power over this world (see Ephesians 2:1-9). Allow yourself instead to do good works that befit righteousness – even if you fail you will find that you will succeed in making for yourself a good name known to God.

    Please excuse my rant.

    Respectfully,

    Tom

  275. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for your insight, but I have full trust in the American judicial system and our strategy is not gonna change. We will develope the manufacturing in the USA and in Sweden.

  276. DT

    Dear Andrea:
    In some blog the puppets of IH are saying that the fact that the temperatures measured by the ERV are equal to the temperatures measured by their consultant Fabiani give evidence that the measurements were wrong; but if the probes were at a distance of few centimeters, as you described in past, it is obvious that the temperatures are the same, it is like to measure the fever of the same person with two different thermometers, provided the thermometers are both good. I wonder what they would write if the temperatures measured by their consultant Fabiani were different! The more I read what they write, the more I think they just lie.
    From Russia, with love

    Dear dr. Andrea Rossi.

    I’ve watched the numbers in the report of the yearlong MW operation, and compared them to the actual cost of heat from coal, diesel, and solar. It is still not easy to compete with those. The price of the license demands enormous efforts during a very long time to develop the optimized product and sales and then compete with other already settled energy sources. The market will be difficult. It demands ideology.

    There is one remark that has nothing to do with the litigation or the specific results of the test: Industrial heat consumption is mostly located in factories that can easily be provided with the cheapest and easy to transport forms of energy. Coal by ship and railway, and oil and gas by pipelines. In fact, original “factories”, were built around steam and later diesel engines. Before the age of the factories, most production was done by decentralized home-working weavers, blacksmiths, farmers… but because of the price of the steam machines and the central energy production, the workers were concentrated around those machines. Of course, concentration of labour had other advantages too, but that, for now, I will not discuss.

    So therefore your invention, as a source that is more dense in power and dense in energy and very constant in quality, should find some advantage in decentralized or mobile applications, where the transportation of large amounts of continuous energy sources suffers from a bottleneck. But also there is a limitation with the energy that is needed: If solar panels and solar boilers can provide convenient energy, then people will not buy too expensive yearlong lasting batteries.

    But there is also something else:

    You’re 10 to 50 years ahead of your time. Just like the insights of Leonardo Da Vinci were 500 years ahead at that time.

    Most of the fruits of the E-Cat will be eaten by those who have no vote and no voice yet. So, while in their interest, they cannot invest. Nowadays, the power of decision is in the hands of the people of the oil-era, and the people of the era of the conventional renewables, and in the systems and structures created by them. And there seems to be enough energy for what we do now and what will be done in the near future.

    People who invest large amounts of money (and time) in your invention now, have some short term disadvantages according to the most efficient users of conventional technologies and systems.

    I will make a comparison, exagerated of course, to make it more fun and clear:

    Compare it to the laboratory-based development of cruise missiles in the ages of…. 1492.
    The armies, and later the armada of the Spanish king, would have no advantage from cruise missiles: capabilities to demolish the gate of a fortress at hundred miles distance. I believe he would continue his investments in armor, and conventional weapons.

    So the price one can ask for a technology depends on the cost and the dimensions of the problems it can solve. I do not know many grandfathers who invest lots of their money only to solve the problems of the unborn grandchildren at the risk of loosing the profit for themselves or even losing everything because of a competitor that takes advantage of the temporarily weakened position of the grandfathers due to his long-term investments.

    That is where the taxpayers money comes into place and the government-owned resources: To build the roads, the harbors, the bridges, the schools and universities and the first nuclear power plants, and to build an army to protect all that. All things of common interest. Later, when all are in place, maybe some of those important things can be transferred to private ownership and industry to improve efficiency. “Ownership” of a good, a piece of land, an idea, is a system that is invented by man in order to make sure that the “owner” treats that good with his best possible effort and responsability. Some things that are from nature and serve everyone on the planet, like water, air, sun, but also finite resources like forests, oil fields, rivers and some rights on the use of energy sources and the disposal of waste should be governed by the countries, not the market and not by individuals.

    But my point is that you might be ahead of your time if you want to make an industry that profits from your invention. Unless the QuarkX is soon able to fulfill all the needs for heat of the common man, because there is al lot of unefficiënt use of distributed low quality heat for now I think.
    Also the common man wants to invest some hundreds or even a couple of thousand Dollars or Euro’s for his own device, even if the financial return comes after twenty years, or worse. Some -like me- even believe in ideology to save the planet. That is something that the market will not easily do, although it may be important for all future generations.

  305. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    So let’s examine the probable characteristics of your experiment:

    Given: a 20W thermal output QuarkX unit operating for one hour within an enclosed (insulated) container using temperature change as the metric.

    20W * 3,600 sec = 76 kJ of energy

    Assume water as the working fluid, no phase change. Starting temperature around +20C.

    Specific Heat of water is 4.186 J/ (gram degC).

    So the 76 kJ of energy will affect 17,200 grams * degC of water

    Example, a one liter of water is 1 kilogram = 1,000 grams, so the temperature change will be about +17.2 degC. or a +20C container of water will go to +37.2 degC.

    A good digital temperature measurement system has a precision of at least 0.1 degC. So you can measure better than 1% of the expected total temperature change.

    Likewise, the amount of water may be measured with a digital scale to better than 1 gram so the water mass will be known to better than 0.1%.

    If the effective COP is 200, than the input power will average around 0.1W or 100 mW. So the input power must be measured to better than 1 mW to retain 1% accuracy. This is also doable.

    The parallel notation suggests a dummy load using a resistive heater to simulate the QuarkX reactor. Two separate contains of fluid would be needed with parallel instrumentation, all calibrated. This is all very doable. Comments?

  306. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your suggestions.

  310. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    That sounds like a very simple and solid setup for measuring the power produced by the Quark X. Here are a couple thoughts that have came to mind.

    1) The temperature of the Quark X and the dummy should be measured by multiple measurement devices. For example, a thermocouple made for ultra high temperatures (probably B-type) and an IR device.

    2) To keep the calculation as constant as possible, the water supply should held in a large insulated tank so that it will remain at the same exact temperature regardless of temperature changes in the room. A thermocouple should be placed in the tank and another in the line to the Quark X. A stirer should also be placed in the tank to make sure there are no thermal gradients in the tank so the feed water to the Quark remains as constant in temperature as possible. With the temperature and quantity of water to both the Quark and the dummy exactly the same, the output is only a function of output water temperature.

    3) It should be possible to have someone write a computer program that would take the live data and calculate the COP and show it on the screen.

    I will look forward to the day when such a setup can be demonstrated.

    Hank

  312. Roberto Baldi

    Caro dott. Rossi,
    ho appena ammirato un documentario trasmesso da Focus Channel e prodotto da ENI sulle energie alternative. Tra i vari progetti, il colosso italiano dell’ energia si pregia di mostrare un metodo alquanto semplice per produrre carburante dai rifiuti organici:
    basta sottoporli a temperature intorno ai 300 gradi ad una pressione di x atmosfere ed eliminare eventuale azoto presente. Lo chiamano Waste to fuel e lo stanno perfezionando in un loro centro ricerche a Novara. Le ricorda qualcosa di familiare? Le stesse lobby petrolifere che hanno affossato le sue geniali intuizioni ora le fanno proprie?
    Il tempo è gentiluomo….
    ENGLISH
    I just appreciated a transmission made by ENI on Focus Channel, regarding the alternative energies. Among other projects, they introduced a system to produce fuel from organic wastes: they call this system “Waste to fuel” and it is based upon heating wastes around 300 Celsius at certain pressures. Thay are making the R&D on this in the town of Novara and it is very similar to the process you patented in 1978: as usual, time is gentleman…

  313. Andrea Rossi

    Roberto Baldi:
    Nice to know…that patent of mine has been applied for in 1978, so its validity is expired in 1998: this allows anybody to exploit it. I am glad to know ENI is doing it.
    Thank you for your kindness,

  315. Hans

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Can you explain better the calorimetric measures you are making with the QuarkX, after your quite essential answer to maria?

  316. Andrea Rossi

    Hans:
    The QuarkX is a very small thing with a rating of circa 20 W.
    It is inside a heat exchanger where a fluid exchanges heat with the QuarkX. The fluid remains in the liquid phase, no steam to make it easier. The amount of fluid heated is measured with precision.
    The difference of temperature obtained in one hour is measured with a precise thermometer. The energy consumed by the QuarkX is measured with precision. A dummy is measured in parallel.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  317. Thomas

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I watched a report on Focus Channel where has been shown a plant of ENI that turns wastes into fuel with your Petroldragon patent, now expired: wastes are coked (not cooked) at 300-400 Celsius Degrees at high pressure.
    After 20 years the truth about your invention is emerging.
    I know you now operate in a totally different field, but I think this can be a satisfaction for you all the same.

What is really going on and the related situation will be understandable only at the end of the trial. Persons talking of it now are just displacing air with their tongues.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    In Yesterdays news: “It’s the first-ever sample of metallic hydrogen on Earth, so when you’re looking at it, you’re looking at something that’s never existed before.”

    I was always thinking, that You turned hydrogen into metal long time ago. So my question is: Are they right ?

    Also: Is it better to run say 300 reactors, each with slightly different desing than 3 reactors and after next 10 months realize, that 298 designs failed and 2 designs succeed, than runs 3 reactors and after 10 months start again with 3 reactors (which again fails) ?

    A couple questions please?
    1. Do you continue now again with three QuarkX units (or do you use more?).
    2. Do you consider that the Sigma testing will again take 10 months to achieve 3.5 Sigma or might it be sooner this time for 3.5 Sigma.

    Thank you,

    Tom

  342. Livio

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:

    Livio:
    Thank you.
    Warm Regards,

  344. Dear Andrea,
    If the Quark has high power/mass ratio, why not do the following: Make a large set of them, for example with 12-fold redundancy, then run them in shifts so that each quark runs during 12 month calendar time only 1 month active time. Then the quark has to be qualified by running it for only 1 month (probably you have already accomplished this in 2016). From the user point of view, servicing and unit replacement still happens only once per year. The system is economical if producing the quarks is cheap.

    Hello Dr. Rossi:
    Hungarian scientists have replicated the effect: see this publication on Arxiv:

    Charged particle assisted nuclear reactions in solid state environment: renaissance of low energy nuclear physics

    Peter Kalman and Tamas Keszthelyi Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Institute of Physics, Budafoki ´ut 8. F., H-1521 Budapest, Hungary

    The features of electron assisted neutron exchange processes in crystalline solids are surveyed.
    It is found that, contrary to expectations, the cross section of these processes may reach an observable magnitude even in the very low energy case because of the extremely huge increment caused by the Coulomb factor of the electron assisted processes and by the effect of the crystal-lattice. The features of electron assisted heavy charged particle exchange processes, electron assisted nuclear capture processes and heavy charged particle assisted nuclear processes are also overviewed. Experimental observations, which may be related to our theoretical findings, are dealt with. A possible explanation of observations by Fleischmann and Pons is presented. The possibility of the phenomenon of nuclear transmutation is qualitatively explained with the aid of usual and charged particle assisted reactions. The electron assisted neutron exchange processes in pure Ni, Pd and Li−Ni composite systems (in the Rossi-type E-Cat) are analyzed and it is concluded that the electron assisted neutron exchange reactions in pure Ni and Li − Ni composite systems may be responsible for recent experimental observations.

    Summarizing, the theoretical results expounded and their successful applications in explaining some unresolved experimental facts inspire us to say that the studying of charged particles electron assisted nuclear reactions, especially the electron assisted neutron exchange processes may start a renaissance in the field of low energy nuclear physics.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is the energy of every massive object given by its rest mass?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    W.

  357. Andrea Rossi

    W.Y.:
    In a nutshell: by the Relativity theory, the energy of a massive object, whatever it is, is given, as you correctly say, by its rest mass, but you have to add to it its kinetic energy, that depends on how fast it is moving in respect to the system it is inside. If the speed is considerable in respect to the speed of light, the energy increases substantially, but at the speed we experiment in our life the increase of mass is irrelevant: for example, if the speed goes close to c ( a massive object cannot reach the value of c ) the kinetic energy is far greater than its energy at rest, but at the speed of an aeroplane the increase of energy is about one hundred billionth of its energy at rest.

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say the QuarkX is acting a ‘little different’ now, does this mean:

    1) You had to repair the reactor
    2) You had to adjust the control system
    3) The power output is lower
    4) The COP is lower
    5) The QuarkX is less stable
    6) You had to start over on your quest for Sigma 5
    7) Something else

    Thank you for what you can tell us.

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Dr Rossi,

    Interesting post regarding IH and their position:

    character assassinations do not bolster IH’s credibility. Let’s see what actually happened between IH and Rossi. Let’s see your lab records and notebooks. Let’s see how IH reps behaved when showing the 1 MW plant to investors. Let’s see the evidence, and then we shall all decide.

  377. Tom Conover

    Andrea,

    I hope you are well and pray that you sustain yourself though 2017. “The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. For the true God will judge every deed, including every hidden thing, as to whether it is good or bad.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

    Godspeed,

    Tom

  381. Eric Ashworth

    Andrea, Regards your recent comment stating you have/had a problem with regards the control of the quark X. This is just a thought but maybe your activating system should blink i.e. on off at a specific rate. I say this because everything in nature seems to need to pulse at various rates in order to maintain a balance. And also all the best with regards your upcoming court case. Regards E.A.

    @ Harvey,

    I think the experiment performed is clear enough for other physicists to consider clearly and likely to be able to reproduce the results. The output of the experiment appears to be comparable to or greater than lenr, but as it is laser stimulated it seems to me to be a bit more like the Tomahawk project, on a very small scale with functional results for what I would estimate to be under $1,000,000 of testing (guessing). Franks comment on E-Cat World describes it this way “If Holmlid’s conclusions are correct here, then this would be a very important contribution to the body of LENR/cold fusion research.”

    I think Andrea would say thank you for the link, it is a very interesting indeed experiment.

    Tom

  386. Harvey

    Dear Andrea,

    On January 20th, I posted a link to the recent paper by Leif Holmlid and as of this moment you have not responded. Is there any problem?

    Andrea
    please, please, in order not to diminish your credibility, TRY to not postpone the announced demo in February….
    Every delay will be seen as a sign of inconsistency of what you say and pretend.

    If you will not publish this post of mine, never mind. I just wanted to let you know the mood of the LENR enthusiasts and believers.

    Ciao

  397. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Gio:
    I strongly sympathyze with you and all the persons that counted on the QuarkX presentation, but it is better to recess a little now and triumph later, then the contrary.

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the latest issue with your QuarkX:
    a) related to the fuel
    b) related to the reaction
    c) related to the control
    d) related to heat exchange / dissipation
    ?

    Best regards.
    Patrick

  399. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    The latest issue is related to the overheating, therefore to the control.
    I think we have understood and we are ready to restart. Tonight , in this very moment, I am working on it with the engineers of my great Team. We will win also this time. We have to.

  407. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Good luck on the planning, implementation of the Demonstration. It takes a lot of work to make a smooth, predictable public demonstration. Some thoughts and things to consider for such a demonstration:

    a. Repeatability: During my 48 years as an engineer, when I presented a radical new idea or product to Management or to a customer, I would practice run the complete demonstration around 10 times, to refine it, detect any unusual results, and to make sure the demonstration “behaved” properly.
    b. Numerosity: I understand you have up to three QuarkX units. If so, a decision needs to be made how many do you simultaneously run for the demonstration? More than one adds validity to the demonstration, but then the results will likely be different so you will need to address the differences. If the results are exactly the same, that may decrease the audience’s perception of validity.
    c. Accuracy: All input, output and measurements must be calibrated. The calibration data must be made available and preformed in a manner that is simple, yet highly accurate. Since you are proposing a water-based demonstration (heating water without a phase transition), you will need to calibrate the electrical input measurement system, the temperature measurement devices (each one), the water flow instrumentation, and any other measurement devices I may have failed to mention.
    d. Enclosure: The experiment should be a closed system that is visible so the viewers can see that no hidden (cheats) are in use. Plus no external energy transfer devices are affecting the experiment.
    e. Dummy or Unfueled system: You need to decide if a simultaneous “dummy” or unfueled unit is run under the same conditions to demonstrate the difference. The positives are that it presents a clearer image of the excess energy that actual unit is producing. The downsides are more likelihood of errors and unforeseen differences that need to be explained.
    f. Environment: The demonstration area needs to be large, clean, with chairs for the attendees, a single source of input power (an extension cord running from the wall, etc. Attendees should be able to walk around the demonstration unit. It should not have the “feel” of a laboratory experiment or a garage project.
    g. Documentation: professional quality handouts should be available in sufficient quantities for more than the number of attendees. USB drives should be provided for the calibration and other pre-demonstration tests that will be released.
    h. Legal: Your lawyers need to review all documents and statements for public release.
    i. Oral presentation: Prepared and practiced many, many times so the presentation is viewed as professional and may be clearly understood. This takes a lot of time and practice. Practice in front of an actual audience, preferably trusted outsiders who can critically advise as to what is not working in the presentation.
    j. Personnel Depth: Have an alternative presenter prepared in case the primary presenter becomes sick or not available.
    k. Attendees: Invite them early with a fixed date for the demonstration. Try not to “slip” the date. Invite persons of importance to gain credibility for the demonstration. Trained and well-recognized industry leaders (e.g., SRI, professors involved with LENR). Request RSVP. Have some small, but adequate meal or food and drink (non-alcoholic), especially if the length of the demonstration is over 30 minutes.
    l. Duration: Consider how long a demonstration is appropriate. 8 hours is way too long for the attendees to observe. A few minutes is not credible. Be long enough to capture the effect without being boring.
    m. Automation: If possible, automate the demonstration to smoothly run the demonstration. Consider multiple startups, operation and shutdowns if possible, although it adds more risk that something unusual will occur. The operation time length should be of sufficient duration to demonstrate the effect.
    n. COP Selection: Don’t run the demonstration at an unusually high COP (i.e. 200) or too low a COP (e.g. 2). Choose some target value that clearly demonstrates excess energy even assuming worst case calibration errors but ‘feels” adequate. I would suggest a COP range of 5 to 20.
    o. Water: Consider using a clear water container using store-bought distilled water that you periodically pour into the container to keep the supply of water both visible and observable. Using tap water, critics might suggest you used something another fluid and dispute the results. Allow a random participant to taste the water and to pour it into the source tank. On the input and output side, weigh and record the water weights as a secondary check on the flow rate measurements, as you did in the 2010 demonstration.

    A successful public demonstration takes a lot of work and time (months to properly prepare) but will be invaluable. Do all that you can do to quash the inevitable critics.

    My thoughts. Good luck on a successful demonstration. You get one chance to make a good first impression.

  420. Jude Rabalais

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi
    Is it confirmed your demo in the next couple if months?

  421. Andrea Rossi

    Jude Rabalais:
    It depends upon the amount of work we do for the litigation, that in these last days has escalated enormously. The organization of a demo well done takes a lot of time and work.
    Probably we will have to delay the presentation of the QuarkX until after the verdict of the litigation, that is expected by July. I matured this thought today returning from Raleigh, where work for the litigation has been made.
    The presentation of the QuarkX must be perfect and to make it perfect I have to work on it with maximum focus, that now I have not. I am under too much pressure. I must first win one battle, then make the next and the litigation is now.
    Probably we will start in March to receive visits of experts to make together with them closed doors measurements and tests.
    This is the idea I formulated today examining the situation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Got it, the core of it is that gravity is a byproduct of quantum interactions, so that the Dark Matter is substituted by the Dark Energy.

    Dear Andrea,
    You have told us that the QuarkX may be demonstrated next month. I have some questions regarding this:
    1. How likely is that going to happen in February?: a. Very; b. Probably; c. Maybe not; d. Do not know
    2. Are the locations selected?
    3. Are you preparing these demonstrations already?
    4. Are you considering to demonstrate an 1 MW ‘low temperature’ plant in the future too?
    5. If ‘Yes’, when roughly may that happen?
    6. If ‘No’, why not?
    Thank you for answering our questions, we very much appriciate this!
    Good luck with the QuarkX tests and I hope you will survive this endless reading of the boring trial documents.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  486. Fulco

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    the “peripathetics on the bankroll of IH”, as correctly DT called them, are trying to force you to make the process in the blogs, in particular in LENR forum, that is their blog, instead of in court.
    Your attorneys correctly want you to confine any discussion in court and you correctly respect this. Anyway, this attempt of IH gives evidence of their weakness in court. Do you agree?
    Godspeed,
    Fulco

  487. Andrea Rossi

    Fulco:
    As you correctly say, my Attorneys told me not to talk in any blog of issues to be discussed in Court.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  488. Hank Mills

    DT,

    You mention that JM Products could have been producing the chemicals that were needed by Leonardo Corporation. My thinking is that JM Products could have used the platinum black (platinum sponge) in a pressurized hydrogen environment — UTILIZING THE HEAT FROM THE PLANT — as a spillover catalyst to produce atomic hydrogen that could hydrogenate nickel. Hence, the product being produced (which would be very useful to Leonardo Corporation) could have been optimally hydrogenated nickel.

    Do you think this is a likely scenario?

    What are your thoughts on this possibility?

    To me, regardless of any other considerations, it would seem to have been a beneficial arrangement between JM Products and Leonardo Corporation. Moreover, it would show that both manufacturing was taking place and the heat from the plant was being utilized.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  489. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    My Attorneys ordered me not to talk in the blogs of issues to be discussed in Court.

  498. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I agree with you that it would be a better demonstration to do a non-radiative demonstration, instead using a heat transfer by conduction and/or convection into the working fluid.

    If we assume a QuarkX of dimensions of 10cm in length, and a cylinder diameter of 7.5mm with a surface temperature of 300degC and an ambient of 20degC, the rough calculations are Qconv = 8.7W and Qrad = 11.4W (total of 20.1W)for a horizontal cylinder in free air with a surface emissivity of 0.85. Such a small diameter cylinder would make remote temperature sensing very challenging. Measuring the temperature change of a flowing working fluid seems much more accurate and a more sensible way to proceed. Thoughts?

  499. DT

    Dear Andrea:
    the well known peripathetics on the bankroll of Cherokee-IH have made comments about presumptive emails between you and JM: apart the fact that for me it is normal that between you anf JM could have been a private business, if they produced chemicals and you used chemicals, but I’d like a comment from you: I think Cherokee-IH are scratching the bottom of the barrell to invent something against you: probably it is for this reason that they have also asked to delay the term to find evidence against you.
    Warm Regards,
    DT

  500. Andrea Rossi

    DT:
    Here is the release allowed by my Attorneys:
    I have not reviewed any emails which are supposedly reduced, but I can say that we are confident that the evidence we have uncovered is more than enough to support our claims.
    While I cannot comment on emails I have not seen, I question the authenticity of such emails as the Court has entered a protective order prohibiting the release of that type of document in this case.

    Lashwana:
    1- the publication of the emails or the diffusion or of their content is in violation of the confidentiality put from the Court. The matter of the pre-trial research is strictly confidential and I cannot make any comment, while our Attorneys will take care of the matter.
    2- in general, the publication of pieces of evidence abstract from the specific context is misleading and nonsensical: I cannot speak of the specifics of this case, because they have to be brought first in Court
    3- I am more than convinced that we have all the necessary evidence to sustain our case and our evidence does not belong to the blogs, but to the due place
    4- our Counterpart has asked for a delay of the term to present evidence against us, we do not need any delay because we have all the necessary evidence already.

  509. Chimico

    Gent.mo Andrea Rossi,
    Sono un professore di chimica, da anni seguo lo sviluppo dell’ E-Cat e sono fortemente convinto dell’efficacia, dei fondamenti scientifici e delle enormi prospettive di sviluppo e utilizzo di questo dispositivo. Avrei piacere a poterLa invitare per tenere una conferenza/lectio magistralis nel mio istituto internazionale in Italia, più precisamente in Lombardia. Se fosse interessato La pregherei di segnalarmelo, anche tramite email. La ringrazio. Cordiali saluti.

    English: I am a Professor of Chemistry and I follow your work since several years. I am convinced that the E-Cat technology and its scientific ground are valid and have an important future. For this reason I am inviting you to make a Lectio Magistralis in my international institute in Lombardia (Italy). Please let me know your availability.

  510. Andrea Rossi

    Chimico:
    Thank you for your very kind and appreciated proposal, I surely am honoured by it. I cannot move from the USA in this period, due to the overwhelming engagements on two fronts: the development of the QuarkX and the litigation. The two combined draw at least 14 hours per day of my time and the litigation demands my personal availability for the Attorneys every day. For example, in the last 2 days I had to go through 7 000 ( seven thousand) pages of documents, the whole during a 4 hours hearing in Court in Miami the day before yesterday and an 8 hours hearing in Raleigh, NC, between the counterparts yesterday, while this morning I am in Miami to work with the QuarkX: can you imagine the fun?
    In a short term we can organize it by Skype, while to make possible for me to leave the “battlefield” is necessary to wait for the end of the litigation, that we expect to be within September: the justice in the USA is very efficient, albeit it demands a tremendous effort economical, intellectual and physical.

    Dear Andrea,
    First, best wishes for good health; yesterday I bought ”Le Scienze” January 2017 (italian edition of Scientific American): the cover title is: “The private road to nuclear fusion” !. I think I can finally read a something on E-cat and Andrea Rossi. No, they speak of many private companies as an alternative to ITER with lasers and plasmas for nuclear fusion. They say: “Situated just a few billion dollars of funding to get in a few years perhaps to concrete results.” How usually my friend Andrea Rossi says: “No Comment”.

  521. Andrea Rossi

  524. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear dr. Andrea Rossi and team,

    Nowadays, fake news is an important issue. The big names of the Internet now claim that they are going to introduce journalistic checks on the goods that are distributed through their channels.

    Given the size and origin of the opposition that you might encounter, I think it is appropriate not to wait with presentations and publications.

    I fear that new systematic forms of censorship will limit the power of the free word of dishonest people.

    Only it remains to be seen who will be elected as honest and who will be marked as dishonest.

    It has been since 2010-2011 that major stakeholders are aware of the reality of your invention.

    When Goliath has good intelligence, David will never have a chance.

    I fear that time is already gone for a surprise attack.

  530. Dear Dr Rossi,

    Congratulations on the design of the quarkX cell, the use of printed circuits on ceramic is very clever since the reactor is supposed to work around 1000 °C, for heat exchanges it’s perfect!

    I can not help thinking of a Peltier effect when I see the photo of the “cell”. (Cold side, hot side)

    I look forward to seeing the official presentation, is it still scheduled for the beginning of this year?

    Regards,

    Michel

  531. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    The drawing in that “photo” is just a joke of the Reader! It is a paste of the original photo, in which I was showing the diploma of the US Patent, with a drawing of a presumptive QuarkX design that has been totally invented by the Reader, just to joke with us…look well, you will see that the drawing contains the character of a cartoon, he,he,he…
    Speaking seriously: yes, this year the official presentation should be done.

    Dear Mr. Andrea Rossi

    To Fusionguy you said: “The domestic apparatuses did not yet receive the necessary certification”.
    We very much look forward to.
    What is the reason for such a long certification?
    1. There is no time and energy to do it?
    2. Design?
    3. Management?
    4. Lack of theory?
    5. Instability work?
    6.lack of security guarantees?
    8. Other.
    9. Or just nitpicking?

    Did you receive the evidence a Reader talked about the fact that Mr Weaver, Mr Jed Rothwell, Mr Abdul Lomax have been paid from IH to assassinate your character and libel your sustainers, or persons positively oriented toward you, after the beginning of the litigation? Do you have evidence of money that changed hands in this context?

    L.:
    Same answer I just gave to Robert.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    1- did IH know from the beginning (2014) that you were going to be a consultant of JM to set up their plant for the performance test?
    2- did IH know that you were in daily contact with JM during the test?
    3- did IH know that between Leonardo Corporation and JM there was a strict collaboration?
    4- did you respect the confidentiality with both IH and JM not giving technological information about JM to IH and about IH and Leonardo to JM?
    5- did Leonardo pay issues that had to be paid by JM (from IH accolites came chatters about this fact)

  559. Dear Andrea Rossi. Long ago many of us signed up for delivery of one or more ECATS. According to you the waiting list is still valid. But at that time we expected a cat in the order of 10 kW. If one of these days you are able to deliver QUARK-X’es.
    1. Will we receive an assembly of Quarks producing 10 kW together for each ECAT ordered or
    2. Just one Quark of 10 W for each Cat ordered?
    I wish you stellar success in 2017 !

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I know that you will design and implement a demonstration to meet your own objectives but this is my suggestion which you are free to ignore or to implement on whole or in part.

    Run two Quark units in series, electrically. Pump water at a controlled rate pass the first active Quark unit and then the dummy Quark unit (order is not important). The second Quark unit is a “dummy”, no fuel but the identical to the first unit without the fuel.

    Assume T0 is the inlet temperature of the fluid being heated. The output of the active Quark will result in the fluid being heated to temperature T1. The fluid is immediately sent as the input to the “dummy” Quark. The output temperature of the “dummy” Quark is measured and is designated as T2. The fluid flow rate is recorded. In addition, the fluid is disposed into a container whose weight is continuously recorded against time.

    This approach removes many error sources as they will be common to both the active and the dummy Quarks. The temperature sensors may be calibrated by pumping the fluid with both devices unpowered and with the inlet fluid at a known temperature (e.g., room temperature, 0deg C, and some very warm temperature — say +40deg C and then +80degC). Thus calibration curves for the temperature sensors for inlet, the intermediate and the final units could be established. The calibration on the pumping device could be calibrated using the increase in the collection container mass over time (e.g., a 10 cc per second over 100 seconds will show an increase corresponding to a 1000 cc of fluid). An inline reporting ammeter that measures the power that flows through the active and dummy Quark circuit and that allows for recording of the current flowing through the circuit is also suggested. The effective COP would be related to the difference in fluid temperatures between T1 and T0 and T2 and T1. The other check would be the current in the circuit compared to the fluid energy increase based on flow rate, the specific heat of the fluid and the temperature measurements. The COP values should be consistent between the two approaches. My thoughts.

    Dear Andrea,
    As Thomas Edison implied, “You can kill an elephant with high voltage A.C. but not with low voltage D.C.” He was promoting his DC power generators citing their much better safety features. He was defeated by the fact that AC was much cheaper and less loss sensitive to long distance transmission. If the devices you are preparing can produce DC electric power and can be located near the usage site, there are many advantages they possess other than low production costs. They are, safety, elimination of long transmission lines and the need to maintain the present delivery systems, with their high voltage transformers, which are subject to weather disruptions. The need for insulation materials will be greatly reduced and the need for AC to DC converters required by today’s communication devices eliminated.
    Future improvement regards.

  577. Andrea Rossi

    Eernie1:
    Our apparatuses will produce heat, not electricity.
    The heat will be used for the Carnot cycle, if electricity will have to be produced.

  578. arjen

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I was just wondering, would it be possible to enter the market with small ecat parts without a safety license, approval, authorization. Reason I ask because there a many materials that you can acquire in a regular shop that in itself are harmless but only when put together could be potential dangerous. Would it not be possible to provide small harmless ecat modules, that you would need no approval for? Did you ever thought about this and did research about the legal possibility to do this?

    I wish you and your family and your colleagues all the best for the coming year.

    Yes: the matter of the fact is that we use much more sophisticated measurement systems, but I have learnt that the demos must be made with a much more simple system, even if it is, obviously, less sophisticated.

    Hello Dr Rossi.
    I know you are a very busy man. and i want take to much of your time.as you know i have been around since your first public demo and before, I have had an excellent time following your every move, and can say you have handled each move with brilliance and well thought through experiments, i have always believed in your work.
    We have all been waiting for so long to see your new QUARK X, could you give us a little on how you envision how this test will be performed, how big it will be, what part of the world it will take place, you said it will be streaming that’s nice, please take some time and give us a little more about the demo. as it will be coming up fast. who will be in charge of the details, surly that is not to secret. how time fly’s huh .
    Sorry if you have already answered these ? will it be powering something, will it be a new device or one that has already been in use. can your most loyal fans get a preview if we keep it quit for a while, private group of course. of your choice of course, but a private viewing would be great do you have anyone that can manage such a thing. thanks sir and may the Father always have his hand on your shoulder. — from Oklahoma with great admiration.

    Dear Andrea
    Around 90% of the worlds electricity is produced by using steam as the energy carrier.
    Roughly 50% of this steam is made by burning coal. 25% by burning gas and 25% by nuclear power.
    All this energy sources are polluting one way or another.
    An invention that may produce steam without pollution and to a lower price than the sources mentioned above, is what most of the world is dreaming of. A change of the steam generating parts of the powerworks may then be possible without any major interruptions.
    Individuals, companies and societies that benefits of the business of supplying the energy sources of today will strongly fight against a change. These forces are economical heavy and well organized.
    Your presentation in February must trigger stronger forces to succeed. You need to show the owners of the electricity power works, the OEM’s that produce steam generators and politicians this new possibility.
    As you often repeat there are much outstanding work to be done before the QuarkX is ready for the marked. To do all this work at many levels and in time, you need far more staff. To hire all the staff necessary, you need funding. My hope is that you may get the funding necessary without losing your controlling position.
    In your quest for funding and attention, your now present partners name is of high importance. I hope he will stay forward in conjunction with the February presentation and that new individuals and companies of importance, will join your goals.

    Dear Andrea:
    I saw the last HHT of Brillouin, but it is just the copy of your old Hot cat, while their supposed “Q Pulse”, that pretends to be an invention, is nothing but a normal wave used in all the gensets of the world! It is a real bogus, not an IP!
    In the electronic jargon this is called a “rectified square wave”, because it is used in the gensets that from direct current they first get a square wave, then they pass to a rectified square wave, then by a series of integrals they recreate a sinusoidal wave.
    This smartasses have just invented a trade mark for a device that is one century old and that every electrician learns in his first year of school.
    The COP they got comes only after their agreement with Industrial heat. Before that agreement Brillouin was just losing his time with electrolitic bullshit, as it clearly appears from their publications.
    About what they call a “third party”: we have discovered that all the members of the “third party” that made their Washington test are members of their company…
    My suspect is that they are just trying to fool the investors of IH, like Woodford, with smoke in the eyes, after they lost your license.

    In the English version of Wikipedia the article “Andrea Rossi” is managed by powerful editors paid by your foes. We tried many times to correct all the slanders contained in it, but after few seconds all the corrections are erased. In that article all the updates against you, usually totally false, are accepted, while all the corrections are sistematically erased within seconds. We think that a corrupted editor controls it full time. The text reports all the comments of your well known foes and rejects all the comments that can contain anything non negative related to you. Why don’t you sue them?
    Thank you for your important job,

  635. Andrea Rossi

    Ike:
    I know perfectly the Wikipedia issue, because we too have tried to correct the falsities, but, as you say, after few seconds the corrections are canceled: this fact gives evidence of the fact that there is a team of powerful editors that full time takes care of it, otherwise the corrections would be made now and again, as it happens normally. Probably you too have experienced the fact that when we tried to insist in the due corrections on this page, the guy who tries to correct is banned from the editing system. This gives evidence that there is an organized gang of editors, not just candid guys.
    Now I have better to do than take care of Wikipedia, its turn will arrive in due time, in due place, in due ways.
    By the way: the probabilities that our Customers will not buy our products because of the stupidities written by our foes on Wiki are 0%, therefore it is not a priority. They damage my personal image, but not our product and what counts here is not my person ( I myself do not take myself seriously in the global context ), what counts here is the product I am working upon.

  641. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    If the QuarkX unit is generating a nominal 20W of excess thermal power, then I would recommend a water calorimetric test, with no phase transition (no boiling). This is the type of testing that Andrea Rossi performed more than 5 years ago and he is quite proficient in the conduct of the testing. Obviously, electrical input must be simultaneously measured (all phases). Properly conducted, it should be very accurate. I would like to see a 20C to 40C temperature differential between the input water and the output water but some variations in range is acceptable. My two cents worth.

    If I were to design the test, I would use a live QuarkX and a dummy unit (no fuel), electrically attached in series so each unit receives identical input power and the water input and water output temperatures precisely measured along with the flow rate for each. Each unit would be in its own insulated container. In this way, the amount of input power is precisely known to be identical for the dummy unit and the actual unit. Any differences in excess heat produced must therefore be due to the QuarkX unit’s activity. However, there may be control issues that could preclude this approach to testing. I am confident Andrea Rossi will design and implement a carefully engineered test methodology.

    Dan C,

    Based on Andrea’s historic comments (a long time ago), I would guess that each Quark is controlled. Furthermore, it is likely that Andrea has determined the “sweet zone” where the Quark optimally performs, whereby it be optimal stability, optimal COP, etc. And the “sweet zone” has some range of operation, say 25% of full power, e.g., the zone might range from a 50% of full power to 75% of full power where the desired average output is 62.5% of its full power capability. So a single nominal 100W Quark unit, in my hypothetical, would be capable of generating 160W of power. Again, this is just my guess.

    So in your hypothetical 100 Quark system, the minimal power adjustment might be 0.1% change or even smaller, not an on/off condition of a single Quark unit. This assumes independent operation of the ensemble of Quarks. It is also possible that a change in operating parameters of adjacent Quarks affect the operation of a Quark and thus, the control logic becomes more complex and challenging. Andrea Rossi is free to correct me if I have mis-stated his design or implementation. It is likely much more complex that my simple statement or model suggests.

  652. Lars Lindberg

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    have you improved the amout of fuel the QuarkX needs to run compared to the earlier ecats?
    How much fuel do you calculate a QuarkX needs to run for 6 months?

    I suspect the electrons required to drive the QuarkX are of a different type to those being produced :-)

  659. Steven N. Karels

    Patrick,

    Thanks for the response. But the underlying ASSUMPTION is that of isolation between the Ecat output and the Ecat input. Only Andrea can specifically address this assumption as to its validity. The “safety concern” could be another phenomena not related to input/output power isolation.

    I agree that the typical application for electricity power generation will be an integrated approach. Andrea Rossi has stated this many times over the past few years. But there are applications in remote locations were it may be more economical to be isolated from the electrical grid (too expensive or difficult to run). Or there is no electrical grid – e.g. the Artic. The more conventional applications will come first. But a power input free demonstration would be so nice to see!

    If one wants, they can go off grid today. Install a combination of a small wind turbine, solar panels, several Tesla Power-Wall batteries and for good measure, a diesel storage tank and gen-set.

    Few go off grid because it simply isn’t economical. The advent of the E-cat won’t change that. We make use of the grid because it provides multiple economic advantages.

    I see E-cats providing home heating, but electrical needs will still come from a grid system. Maybe just less centralized.

    Steven N. Karels,
    Your post makes perfect sense.
    Thank you for asking the question “how large of a battery/energy storage device is needed to eliminate the safety issue?”
    That is the crux.
    Regards
    Patrick

  663. Steven N. Karels

    Tom Conover,

    Scientists and engineers use to believe that aircraft could not possibly fly faster than the speed of sound, until it was done. There are always reasons why something cannot or should not be done.

    The engineer in me wonders why safety considerations indicate an ecat cannot power itself? A gasoline engine can and does run for a long period of time generating the electricity to charge the battery that eventually provides the spark that fires the spark plugs in the cylinders. It runs until the fuel is exhausted. It is not a perpetual motion machine. Neither is an ecat. It will run until its fuel is exhausted.

    So hiding behind a mis-statement that somehow self-powering an ecat transforms it into a perpetual motion machine is both illogical and disingenuous. No, I do not have such a patent.

    This is a matter of understanding and extending logic. If we agree that an ecat can produce excess energy when the input electrical power is supplied by the national grid or some other independent source of power, and there is no safety issue, then how much can we replace the grid with a large enough battery and suitable electrical control to allow tapping a portion of the produced excess energy, converting it to electricity, as the quark ecat is alleged to do, storing that energy in a battery and then using the battery power to run the control of the ecat?

    The ecat concept may be modeled as an energy amplifier and the battery as a large capacitor. If the safety concerns are related to a thermal runaway potential problem due to a transient, a common source of problems in a high gain amplification (energy out versus energy in), then the time constant of the effective network must be long enough to eliminate the possibility of oscillation and runaway. So providing a large enough energy storage device should eventually eliminate any safety concerns due to thermal runaway caused by an output energy transient. It is assumed that an infinite energy source (effectively), such as the national electrical grid provides a stable condition. So how large of a battery/energy storage device is needed to eliminate the safety issue. Unless the safety issue is not a thermal runaway due to the ecat output being used for its own input. That was the question I was asking.

    Andrea Rossi may choose not to answer or even to mask the answer in some obscure response – that is his right. But I know and believe he will not deceive us. But saying it can’t be done because Andrea said so is unsatisfying without a valid, understandable explanation. But proprietary information may require him not to directly answer. Still I ask.

    Would you consider a successful presentation of the QuarkX one of the factors that could help with your goal for mass production?

    Thank you very much for answering our questions.

    Dear Andrea,
    You replied to my question that the COP of a cluster of QuarkX’s cannot be higher than the individual COP’s. Previously you have also said that to control a QuarkX cluster the control system does not necessarily need to be connected to all the individual QuarkX’s of that cluster.
    My conclusion was that QuarkX’s can somehow be controlled by another QuarkX.
    1. Is this conclusion right?
    2. If so, then somehow the QuarkX’s that are controlled must deliver some energy to those other that are not direct controlled, to control them indirectly. Is that right?
    I hope these questions do not impede the IP and that you will be able to answer these. Thank you for relentlessly replying to questions!
    Again, good luck with the tests!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Kind regards,

  671. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Potentially yes. Actually it depends on many factors.
    Warm Regards

  672. Tom Conover

    Dear Steven N. Karels,

    Perhaps it is likely that closing the loop to run the QuarkX from it’s own output is possible and even trivial to perform, but creates other issues that you may not perceive. Have you considered the reputation of individuals who have claimed to invent perpetual motion devices in your persistent inquiries?

    Of what merit do you value safety certification compared to the obvious answers to your inquiries?

    Andrea says the device cannot be self powered because of safety issues. That should be the end of it, don’t you agree? I agree with Andrea. The device cannot be self powered because of safety issues. Do you have a patent for a perpetual motion machine, Steven?

    Tom

  673. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I asked in a previous posting if your “safety concerns” were related to a “feedback” issues. I had previously assumed that your concerns of using the output of power or heat generated from an ecat to control or assist the operation of the same ecat unit was related to a “feedback” condition, where a thermal runaway condition might exist or might be a potential problem. I may have misunderstood your concerns or position. Please clarify. If there are no current “safety concerns” with the current Ecat generation regarding output power being used as an input to the same Ecat, please state so.

  674. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The issue remains consistent.

  677. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    a. I know in the past you have eluded to “safety considerations” in using the output of an ecat reactor to drive itself or other ecat reactors… Has your position changed or been modified given the increased knowledge you have obtained on the newest generation of ecats?

    b. If a hypothetical ecat-based system were generating electricity to feed the national grid, and that grid was the source of power for the input energy for the ecat reactor, does this configuration in itself represent a safety issue? One could argue that because of the massive capacity of the national electrical grid, that an output variation of an ecat-based generator would have little effect on the national electrical grid and therefore the national electrical grid would be a suitable stable source for the control of such an ecat-based system.

    c. The next hypothetical would be the same configuration except some of the ecat-based electrical output power is sent to a local battery unit with sufficient energy storage capacity to isolate the ecat input from the ecat output. Does this represent your safety concern?

    d. Please clarify if your safety concerns are of a feed-back type of problem.

  678. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a- no
    b- this is a completely different issue, because the grid is redundant respect intrinsecal safety issues of our apparatus
    c- no
    d- I do not understand what you mean
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  679. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    I suppose that for your first production of industrial QuarkX heating systems you will supply the complete plant like the 1 MW plant that included heat exchangers. One of the biggest companies for heat exchangers is the swedish company Alfa Laval with over 18000 employees. http://www.alfalaval.com/ Maybe they have some products that could be useful for you.

  681. Lars Lindberg

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    to produce heat is great but do you think you can make a QuarkX that can produce electricity in the future?

  682. Andrea Rossi

    Lars Lindberg:
    With the heat you make steam, with the steam you can make electricity.
    Direct production of electricity will be possible, we did it, but the efficiency is low.
    Warm Regards,

  683. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Will/can a cluster of QuarkX’s as a whole have a higher COP than individual ones?

    Dear Dr. Rossi, have you ever tried to feed an E-Cat with heat or electricity provided by another E-Cat? And with the thermal or electrical output of this one feeding the first?
    So realizing a closed loop with very very high COP.
    But I know you’ve said many times that there are safety problems. Only to know if you have made that kind of test some times.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    E-catworld.com reports China are experimenting with an EM Drive – a reactionless rocket propulsion system. Looking into the not too distant future, if a self-sustaining ecat reactor could produce electricity to run an EM Drive, this could be the propulsion system for interplanetary cargo ships (much too slow for limited lifetime humans). At least until Faster The Light drives are developed, if ever.

    I look forward to 2017 with the hope fostered by your upcoming demonstration.

    Do you think your demonstration will result in main stream media attention and follow through stories on the e-Cat and QuarkX? Are you structuring the demonstration with sufficient information such as COP, $/kw, and $/kwh to point towards how compelling LENR and the QuarkX is to the market?

    my best wishes for all on this first day of the new year.

    And of course I meant to say “I know the feeling!”

  720. Ron Stringer

    An interesting dream! Strange things happen at the intersection of wakefulness and sleep.
    I wish you (and your team) all the best for the new year. It would be nice to hear more about (from?) your team, at some point. It must be very exciting for them to be part of something of this magnitude, working with new phenomena, seeing such extraordinary things.
    I have long wondered why you keep up this website, answering so many questions, some of them impertinent or disrespectful, many of them naive. But I have learned that you usually answer questions truthfully and respectfully, and you generally find a way to say what you mean, despite being limited in what you can say. And you have repeatedly said “Thank you for your sustain.” Which I take to mean that you appreciate the interest and support from your readers, that our support of you is valuable to you. If that is our real contribution, then it is a pleasure to be able to make it.
    While most of us are not able to make technical contributions, it is within our grasp to make sure that you are supported and appreciated while you do your work, that you have some grounding in a community of people who want you to succeed. Dr. Victor Frankl once said something along the lines of “I want to be a doctor, but remain a person.” I think you want to be an inventor, and are therefore consumed by your work, but want to remain a person, which means you need to be in touch with other people, that you can’t give away too much information but you still need to talk about what you do. Science is, paradoxically, an area where one spends a lot of time immersed in work, and is at the same time an intensely social activity. It doesn’t work if one doesn’t read and talk about what others are doing, and it won’t work if one doesn’t get the social support one needs.
    Anyway, a lot of words to say that when you say “Thank you for your sustain,” I say “I know what you mean!”

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    In 2016 you published here your New year Eve dream: what did you dream during this New Year Eve night?

  722. Andrea Rossi

    Vance Neitzke:
    This New Year Eve night I didn’t sleep, too many issues to think about, but, during that limbo status between to be awake and to be sleeping, I attended this dialogue by two characters: Galileo (G) and Andrea (A).
    G- what the heck are you doing ?
    A- testing the QuarkX
    G- what is it ?
    A- not your business
    G- don’t worry, I am not a spy, just curious: what is it for ?
    A- make heat
    G- not much of an invention
    A- make a lot of heat
    G- still not much of an invention
    A- make a lot of heat with a bit of energy respect the heat produced
    G- now, that’s interesting
    A- yep
    G- for example, how much units of heat with , say, ten of the same units of supply ?
    A- more than one hundred
    G- that’s crazy: you kidding ?
    A- nope
    G- how did you invent it ?
    A- mainly try and error, lot of work
    G- I know the feeling
    A- what do you do in the life ?
    G- my life in this Earth is long past. At those times I discovered that the Earth was orbiting around the Sun, not viceversa, but most of all I estabilished a new scientific method to make science, based on experiments instead of speculations
    A- that’s nice
    G- official science tried to roast me for all that
    A- I know the feeling
    G- what do you dream to do with that gadget ?
    A- make billions of them to make energy without pollution and with strong economic advantages: also, to reduce the global warming
    G- what the heck is the global warming ?
    A- forget it
    G- when do you think you will start to produce that gadget, to start the route that will bring to make billions of them?
    A- in this very beginning year, this is my very strong dream right now
    G- how are going the experiments ?
    A- well
    G- do you know the theoretical bases the gadget works upon ?
    A- working on that, I got good ideas, but I privilege the experimental activity
    G- I know the feeling. Fire has been used for thousands of years before its chemical and physical theoretical bases have been discovered
    A- yeah, but you know what Dante wrote: ” fatti non foste a viver come bruti, ma per seguir virtute e conoscienza”
    G- all right, good luck and beware not to be roasted
    A- you bet

    Dear Andrea I wish all the best to you, your team, your various supportive contacts both for theory and engineering and your all your steady supporters who follow your work a great Christmas Season and a special new year.

    I think 2016 has been amazing there have been burdens and difficulties but I get the feeling that deep down in the important real technology huge progress has been made.

    I hope 2017 brings more amazing insights.

    I have a couple questions if I may. You mentioned that current testing has been with 3 ecat quarkXs. This makes good sense to me in initial development when fine tuning your device and to simplify testing and reduce potential variables.

    Do you plan in a later test phase to test performance with many concurrent quarkXs?
    Or would testing large numbers of quarks only be required to test certain configurations before manufacture of complete systems and deployment?

    I think 2017 has huge potential to be a breakthrough year for so many fields certainly in break through technologies but even in other well established fields of science. I’m looking forward to it.

    All,the best to all of you

    Stephen

  734. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    First and foremost, thank you for your sustain and your wishes, so precious.
    Yes, more tests with more series of QuarkX will follow, but if the test on course will end up well, we’ll push on the industrialization.

    Is there a relation between temperature and elementary particles, apart the nuclear fusion?

    Yes: when the temperature raises above the mass of an elementary particle waves are formed in its field corresponding to that elementary particle.

    Dr.Rossi and Readers, blood has 4 parts, red cells white cells Platelets and Plasma.
    At OneBlood Center I have donated Platelets 4 times.
    I received a Gift Card for 40 dollars.
    I am going to donate 6 more times, I will receive a 60 dollar Gift Card.
    For every 10 dollars I get a free large pizza with 4 toppings.
    You can buy other things, with the Gift Card.
    There is another center CSL Plasma, where you can donate Plasma only.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

      I did my graduate work study at USC under Dr. Hellworth and studied Q-Switch theory and Laser Theory. Very simply, if an optical gain media (properly pumped) is in a low-Q resonator and the resonator can be very rapidly switched to a high-Q resonator, then the stored available energy can be released in a very brief pulse, generating a so-called Q-Switched laser pulse. Such pulses are on the order of 20 nanoseconds depending on the laser material, the resonator design, etc. So, for example, if the optical energy released was 1 Joule over a 20 nanosecond pulse, then the effective optical power will be 50 MW.

    Similarly, a 100 W LENR, operating for a year will produce about 30+ MJ of energy. So there is a lot of energy within an LENR material.

    Analogously, if a LENR reaction can be controlled by the application of electromagnetic waves (the assumption) then it should be possible to delay the initiation of the LENR reaction, by either not applying the needed electromagnetic radiation or applying electromagnetic radiation at a specified frequency, with the result to drive the LENR media to near where it will yield an excess heat condition and then apply (or remove) the controlling electromagnetic waves at the correct frequency and with a large enough intensity to avalanche the reaction into a thermal “pulse” – that is, an immediate release of the available thermal energy in a short period of time. If a significant percentage of the available energy in the LENR reaction could be efficiently released in a few milliseconds of so, a significant event would occur. If the LENR response time is much faster than the time it takes for the LENR material to fail (e.g. to melt), then such an event might be possible.

    I understand that your control mechanisms and software will prevent such an event from occurring. My question comes down to whether the time responses of the Rossi Effect can lend themselves to such an event?

  748. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your insight. We work differently.
    Warm Regards,

    Victor Shipacev (vship32@mail.ru):
    I lost your comment in the spam, but here is its core: ” How long will it take, if we exclude thermal inertia, to initiate a lenr reaction ? For example by a laser pulse”.
    Answer: if you refer to the QuarkX, seconds. A laser pulse, anyway, has nothing to do with it. We do not use lasers.

    Hello Dr. Rossi:
    good news from the great Russia.
    23-12-2016
    EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES OF NICKEL – hydrogen reaction with abnormally high heat
    Alabin KA
    SN Andreev Zabavin
    SN Parkhomov AG
    Sobolev AG
    TURKISH Timerbulatov R & D laboratory KIT

    CONCLUSIONS
    • Numerous experiments conducted in different laboratories, confirm selection in the nickel-hydrogen thermal energy systems, many times greater than the possible heat in a chemical process.
    • In the course of the processes occurring in the nickel-hydrogen engines, changes are detected elemental and isotopic composition of the substance. This suggests that abnormally high heat dissipation in these systems, possibly due to the transformations at the nuclear level.
    • That such transformations occur at very low temperatures by nuclear standards, as well as the lack of strict nuclear radiation and radioactivity, it points to the need to look for unusual approaches to explain the observed effects.

    The matter of the fact is that the cooling process should be late respect the damages caused from the rise of the temperature. We invented another system, much more reliable.

  780. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With reports that your newest technology can produce an effective COP of around 200, then why would it not be possible to demonstrate a self-contained unit that produces heat and then electricity (via Carnot or thermo-electric generation), stores the produced energy within a suitable battery and then use the battery output as a stable and constant source of power to control the ecat unit? The purpose of the battery is to decouple the ecat input form the output for safety purposes. If a demonstration like this were held, where only external power was applied to first start the reaction, and then the unit runs continuously for several months. this demonstration would be hard to discredit. With an effective COP in excess of 20 or more, the combined losses in the conversions and storage should still produce an excess amount of energy. I have never understood the claim that for safety reasons, suitably buffered, that the ecat output cannot (indirectly) feed its input. Please clarify.

    If you are going to sell this technology commercially and eventually residentially, there must be no doubt it works. First adopters may except it under very favorable contract terms but the general market will require a conversion in their belief about LENR technology.

  781. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I did not say yet what is the COP of the QuarkX. About the other characteristics, they too will e disclosed during the presentation.
    Thank you for your insight.

    Mario Lorenzi:
    The COP will be communicated during the presentation.

    ‘Battolyser’ technology combines electricity storage and hydrogen production in a single system

    For the first time, TU Delft researchers led by Prof. Fokko Mulder have produced an integrated battery electrolysis system – known as a ‘battolyser’ – that can not only store or supply electricity efficiently as a battery but can also split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electrolysis. This week the first article about it was published Energy & Environmental Science, and a research program has been awarded funding by the Technology Foundation STW with the support of several companies.

    hello dr. Rossi this is a great discovery for enhancing your E CATx, you have easy access to temperatures higher than the current ones.

    Imperial College of London makes world’s most heat resistant material at 4232 kelvin

    Researchers have discovered that tantalum carbide and hafnium carbide materials can withstand scorching temperatures of nearly 4000 degrees Celsius.

    Being able to withstand temperatures of nearly 4000°C could pave the way for both materials to be used in ever more extreme environments, such as in heat resistant shielding for the next generation of hypersonic space vehicles.

    Tantalum carbide (TaC) and hafnium carbide (HfC) are refractory ceramics, meaning they are extraordinarily resistant to heat. Their ability to withstand extremely harsh environments means that refractory ceramics could be used in thermal protection systems on high-speed vehicles and as fuel cladding in the super-heated environments of nuclear reactors. However, there hasn’t been the technology available to test the melting point of TaC and HfC in the lab to determine how truly extreme an environment they could function in.

    Dear Andrea,
    I have some questions about the testing of the QuarkX, which I hope you can answer:
    1. For this 5 Sigma test: How many different QuarkX’es did you test till now: 10’s, 100’ds or 1000’ds of QuarkX’es?
    2. Do you make them all yourself?
    3. Are the tests (occasionally) being witnessed by others?
    4. When you speek of ‘Good standing’ or similar words, do you then refer to one of the three QuarkX’es in operation (e.g. The one in duty test) or to your progress towards 5 Sigma?
    Thank you for answering our questions!
    2017 Is quickly approaching now. Let that year be the year of the breakthrough for you and your team. All the best, Gerard.

    Who is XXX?
    To suppress all scientific development except for those deemed beneficial by the XXX. Especially targeted is nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Particularly hated are the fusion experiments currently being scorned and ridiculed by the XXX and its jackals of the press. Development of the fusion torch would blow the XXX’s conception of “limited natural resources” right out of the window. A fusion torch, properly used, could create unlimited and as yet untapped natural resources, even from the most ordinary substances. Fusion torch uses are legion, and would benefit mankind in a manner which, as yet, is not even remotely comprehended by the public.

    Hi Andrea,

    I’ve been following your posts and news about your discoveries for a few years now. Thank you for all of your hard work, kind responses to those who are short and unkind to you, efforts to explain all sorts of physics questions, and commitment to finding real solutions for this world.

    This day in age people are used to instantaneous change and simple solutions. You see right past their impatience. You have been working hard and keeping to your work challenge after challenge. Your devotion to science, and belief in your ideas and vision could offer a very needed disruptive technology. Thank you for the creativity, and steadfast determinism. It is important to science if you reach sigma 5 or not, make this product or not, for you are pushing the boundaries of what can be done. This is the spirit that has defined the better aspects of our humanity. It is an example for all of the brilliant minds out there to follow.

    Merry Christmas and good luck for an amazing 2017

    Hello, Mr. Rossi. Apparently the test of quark is near completion. For converting thermal energy into electrical energy for smaller plants with a capacity of tens to hundreds of kilowatts can be applied by Otto’s closed cycle. The plant will consist of a conventional spark ignition engine in an electrical generator set. Exhaust gases are directed to a chemical reactor consisting of several thousand x quark coated on their external surface with thermal and photo catalyst that convert carbon dioxide with water vapor in the gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons with oxygen. The resulting mixture of fuel and oxidizer is sent to the cooler where it gives excess heat for heating and water supply needs. Cooled mixture of fuel with the oxidant directed into the intake manifold of the engine.
    The engine starts by a propane cylinder with an exhaust into the atmosphere. Initial battery heating quark’s made from a battery or from the power grid. Gradually closing the exhaust cycle translate Quark’s power to it’s own generator. Using this method, the conversion of thermal energy into electric quark x has the following advantages: the working fluid is used at low pressure, simple equipment used included a standard – the spark ignition gas engine, an electric generator, a heat exchanger exhaust-water. It applies only to new equipment chemical reactor with battery quark’s and the installation control system. The disadvantage of this method is the low coefficient of conversion of heat into electricity. Such installations may be interested manufacturers of autonomous generators and automakers.
    I wish you a Merry Christmas!

    Dear Andrea

    I have a few questions on the E_cat Quark X.

    1. When individual Quark X’s are joined together to make a larger module, will the individual Quark X’s share a common heat sink?
    2. Are the individual Quark X very uniform in their characteristics from one to another.
    3. Will each individual Quark X have its own heating element?

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    But your QuarkX is not only a scientific discovery but an industrial product almost ready to be used as a low cost source of heat.

    Referring to this page of Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Sigma) can you give us an estimation of expected DMPO (Defects per million opportunities) giving also a definition of what is an opportunities in the specific case of QuarkX? (e.g “operating hours” rather than “produced units”)

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    reading various blogs, someone suggests, about the next test on QuankX, that the expert you choose will be important enough to attract investors, but not important enough to scare the economic and scientific world.

    In fact, if the test will appear absolutely confirmatory, there would be a race to massive funding towards your competitors.

    And soon they may overtake your research and could destroy what you’ve done, that till today requires more R&D.

    What do you think?

    Hello Dr. Rossi: here is an interesting document of the American DIA 2009.
    Defense Intelligence Agency
    Defense Analysis Report
    http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BarnhartBtechnology.pdf
    DIA-08-0911-003 13 November 2009
    Technology Forecast: Worldwide Research on Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions
    Increasing and Gaining Acceptance
    Scientists worldwide have been quietly investigating low-energy nuclear reactions
    (LENR) for the past 20 years. Researchers in this controversial field are now claiming
    paradigm-shifting results, including generation of large amounts of excess heat,
    nuclear activity and transmutation of ekments. Although no current theory exists
    to explain all the reported phenomena, some scientists now believe quantum-level
    nuclear reactions may be occurring. DIA assesses with high con fidence that if LENR
    can produce nuclear-origin energy at room temperatures, this disruptive technology
    could revolutionize energy production and storage, since nuclear reactions release
    millions of times more energy per unit mass than do any known chemical fuel.”

    It’s amazing what you can do with carbon and sodium.

    Continuing regards,

    Joseph Fine

  883. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    Do you think there is a link between the energy in the QuarkX and seemingly abnormal mass of galaxies?

    Especially since you write that QuarkX never ran out of fuel, which continues to intrigue.

    It seems appropriate that a common solution exists for all those phenomena that are difficult to explain. Especially now “infallible” is written: Simplicity in all the Complexity would be really Divine.

    You’re also very quiet about the propelling force that had occurred in some cases. It links both phenomena.

    We must take into account that those who have optimized the current models, were mainly concerned with explanations for other phenomena.

    I’d really like to know how you understand a basic electrical attraction, magnetic attraction, a photon and gravitation. Preferably expressed in two substances that interact: something and nothing.

    If you have time, of course.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  884. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    I am pretty sure there is no link between the QuarkX and the abnormal mass of the galaxies. About the interactions between something and nothing, I must confess to you I am not able to answer. About the basics of electrical and magnetic attraction, photons and gravitons all I know is what is explained in the Physics manuals.

    c) Six months

    e) Confidential

    Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

  887. Adam Yates

    Dear Andrea,

    Let me clarify my previous question: I am talking about an infallible QuarkX that has not been tested; therefore, no one knows that it is infallible. But as you test it, the Quarkx will never fail.

    How long would it then take for you to prove that you have reached 5 sigma for that version of the Quarkx?

    THanks

  888. Andrea Rossi

    Adam Yates:
    5Sigma is an R&D issue. The time of an R&D is difficult to foresee.
    Quality control of an industrial production is a different issue.

    Based on your documented E-Cat performance results, excess heat is indeed being produced.
    You current lab data shows that the operating parameters being measured are at about 99.8% of your target values. Can you give us a clue as to what needs to be improved in your E-Cat QuarkX to arrive at the five-sigma effect (99.99994% confidence)?

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you need another partner to fund manufacturing, or are you already partnered with somebody that can afford to light the new fire? Perhaps you might reply with “a new partner would be welcome” or “I am already partnered strongly enough to begin manufacturing immediately”.

    This would help give us better understanding of how long it might be until you begin production.

    Obviously it will be necessary for the industrial plants to have a certified operator for random controls.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About the defense of your intellectual property: you are totally right. I have never seen an important technology given graciously away; this also could be a breach of contract toward all your investors.

  942. Leonard Weinstein

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I am building an e-cat based on the published work of Parkhomov and Rossi, as a proof of concept model. If it works as I hope, I would be willing to sell modules (for a reasonable price), and if desired, accessory equipment to verify this technology. However, due to the patent, I would be libel to penalty if I sold these without a license or specific permission. I am only considering selling a modest number at most, of crude proof-of-concept models, and thus not worth getting a license that would cost too much. My question is: could I sell these modules without a license? I only expect about a kW of output in the form of boiling of water at ambient pressure.

  943. Andrea Rossi

    Mr Leonard Weinstein:
    You are not allowed to sell apparatuses that copy in all or in part our patents.
    You are obviously allowed to make replications in laboratory, for scientific purposes, but you will not be allowed or licensed from us to produce, manufacture and sell or put in commerce, in any form and quantity, products in violation of our Intellectual Property.

    From what we can see reading the papers in the “Pacemaker” of the litigation, it appears that all your points are substantiated with solid evidence, while the complaints of Cherokee Fund and IH are based on assumption without any evidence. Can you comment on this?

    Dr Rossi,

    I do not understand why the very first version of the e-cat (single 10kW reactor) is abandoned, at least you do not mention it anymore. From my point of view it would have been easier for you to consolidate the results of this old version that could have been on the market for a while.

    I hope you will succeed where all others have failed: making a product that can be bought instead of a laboratory curiosity.

    Why did you plan (in February 2017) a public demonstration / presentation as you said several times a while ago that the next step for you is not another demo but the product launch on the market (“In mercato veritas”, as you said) ?
    Sorry for asking if you have already answered this question.

    Dear Andrea;

    When you do your demonstration for invited guests will you do anything spectacular for them, such as run the QuarkX in SSM without any power input?

    I think it will be interesting enough.
    Warm Regards,

  967. Henrik

    Tom Boonen:
    A short analogy makes clear what Dr Rossi is implying:
    When the Wright brothers made their public displays at Ft. Myers and Le Mans (France) respectively, they did not have spare copies standing on the runway missing different parts, say engines, propellers or flaps. While not useless, no one (maybe certain journalists) in the crowd would have taken notice, nor seen comparison fruitful.
    Please compare this to the “Versio Vulgata” needed concerning the real revelations during the Lugano test (I fondly dubbed this event The Lugano Tea Party, hope You appreciate that as a compliment):
    “A test was performed without fuel. The second test, where fuel was present, meant we had to open all windows in the middle of swiss (the swiss knows) winter, to be able to remain in facilities”.

    Andrea,

    So you did try using a dummy in your apparatus. As you saw, it did have a purpose as it satisfied your curiosity and added a level of confirmation to your results.

    I am sure some of your future business partners and all scientists will have the same curiosity…

    dummy= not so dummy after all!

    If a flux calorimeter is used even a simple resistance (COP=1 by definition) works as dummy. Agree?

    Again about the measurements of the QuarkX: did you make also a dummy to compare the data with the real thing?

  974. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    Not during the test with the independent engineer, but we made last week a dummy, just for curiosity: obviously a dummy has COP < 1, using the same instrumentation and methodology. Warm Regards, A.R.

    What do you think about the hot fusion R&D that ENEA will make in Piemonte, Italy?

    Was the instrumentation used in the test made by the third party engineer on the QuarkX calibrated? I mean: has it been calibrated on site with a known energy source before making the measurements on the QuarkX?

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Would you be willing to publish the original Rossi-Cook paper in unedited form, the way you intended it to be published all along?

    2 – The EM Drive seems to be picking up steam — the Chinese already have one in space and they are committed to developing the technology rapidly over the next five years to use it in all of their satellites. Once further developed, what do you think about using the Quark as a power source for this type of reactionless drive?

    Dear Andrea
    I am happy that your measurements are proven correct. This was no surprise when measuring a QuarkX must be 1 million times easier for anybody than inventing it.
    Whether the QuarkX provides 15 or 25 watts, or it has a cop of 20 or 60 is not important now.
    It will be important that day you have a product in competition with others. Then the best product will win.
    A stability so solid that it is possible to take the risk by selling it, is now essential. Only the investors are able to take this decision.
    What are now your specific main concern before a production may be initiated?

  989. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    My main concern is the nightmare of a massive distributed products that have shortcomings.
    It will pass.

    Dear Andrea,
    The end of the year is now approaching, another year year of hard working and a year that perhaps not brought what you expected. In your New Years Wish last year you gave us your vision of what the E-cat X would give us: Light, Heat and Electricity. Now you have made a lot of progress, do you still support that vision, or has it slightly changed?
    Can we expect a new vision for 2017 at the end of this year?
    Many followers hope with you that the design of the QuarkX’s in the 5 Sigma tests will be the One that will conquer the world next year. Avanti, Avanti and good luck!

    Dear Andrea,
    You said that you will have a factory in the south of Sweden. In some areas there are lots of small to medium sized factories, many family owned. They are making different types of products and some are subcontractors to the car and truck industry. Due to the competition from low-cost-countries the innovation and automation is very high. Some factories can run a complete shift unmanned.
    There is also a good spirit. If a company gets a too big order it is common to ask a neighboring competitor for help with production capacity. https://translate.google.se/translate?sl=sv&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=sv&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nyteknik.se%2Fautomation%2Flopande-bandet-gar-i-taket-6809963&edit-text=

    Dear Andrea,

    Your work and process management are facinating. Congratulations on your recent progress!

    Question #1:
    Does this mean you will now combine the two tests and present them to the board of directors for review in order to complete 5 Sigma?

    Question #2:
    Is more testing still needed to achieve 5 Sigma (after you combine and present)?

    Thank you for answering the above questions, and all of your hard work! Especially too for your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, AND faithfulness in your daily activities.

    Warm Regards,
    Tom

    — Relevant Discussion and references —
    Regarding your comment: “We go to close for the 5 Sigma”:

    If I am correct, this statement means that after both teams’ analyses are complete, the two teams will combine their observations. Although the two experiments are based on similar physical principles, it is not trivial to combine their data in a meaningful way. If your wallet were filled with both U.S. dollars and Euros (or Swiss Francs perhaps), you couldn’t simply add the numbers on the bills to find out how much money you had; you would have to perform some conversions first. The two groups might use something called “collaborative statistical modeling” to combine the results of the two experiments. When complete, these analyses will convey a more accurate sense of the strength of the new evidence and determine whether the observed data is consistent with the phenomena they observe.

  1026. Mario Lemieux

    Dear Andrea,

    If you don’t run control experiments, how do you know that your instrumentation is working properly? You might be measuring COP=20 on the QuarkX, but there’s nothing telling us that you wouldn’t be measuring COP=20 on a QuarkX with inert fuel.

    Without a control experiment, you will spend countless time trying to explain why you think your experiment has been designed flawlessly and all variables have been taken into account. It is way more productive to run the exact same experiment with one changed variable (inert fuel) and instantly show that this variable is the one causing your COP>1.

    I’m sure you must have calibrated your calorimetry setup to make sure it was working properly. Using a dummy is the same principle, but applied to your experiment as a whole.

    Regards

  1027. Andrea Rossi

    Mario Lemieux:
    Surely we have calibrated all the instrumentation!
    But calibration has nothing to do with dummies.

    Dear Andrea. With “control”/”dummy”, it is meant to be a quarkX without one of its crucial elements (like fuel) that is fed the same input and whose output is measured in the same way as your fuelled quarkX.
    This will cross check your calculations against another reference.
    Do you still think such experiment is useless at this stage?

    Dear Andrea,
    Yesterday you replied to me that you believe that Raydberg matter does not play a role in LENR for the Rossi effect. That makes me and many others curious how you think it does work.
    1. Do you think that you also have finalized the theory together with Pofessor Cook in February?
    2. If so, will you present the world also how the Rossi effect works then?
    It is good to read that your progress is excellent and others have confirmed your measurements. Please finish the work soon, but thoroughly; we look forward to see the light of the New Fire!

  1043. Irina and Vitaly Uzikov

    Dear Andrea!

    The most sincere congratulations on the successful conclusion of a very important stage of your great work! You’re too much work, so watch out your health! We look forward to the presentation in February

  1044. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulations on the successful test with the engineer, you must be very gratified. Can you say what you will do with the results of this test?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  1045. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    End of the test now, at 10.10 P.M. of Saturday December 12th.
    The results are confirmed. I was afraid that my results were too good to be true, so I said to the third party engineer that I was paying him to find my measurements’ errors. He is saying my measurements were not wrong, basically, with exception of minor errors, so the results are confirmed. I am very encouraged. We go to close for the 5Sigma.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1046. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you say if the engineer doing third party testing with you works for the US military itself, or for a company that does work with/for the military.

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  1047. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    This test was part of the path to the industrial application of the QuarkX.
    I feel more safe.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Congratulations for the successfull third party mesurement, can this result will speed up the industrialisation of the QUARK-X ?

    Warm regards,

  1050. Buck

    Happy Holidays Andrea.

    I am glad to hear that the just completed test with the independent engineer provided confirmation for your measurements.

    A question: Did this engineer assess the degree of statistical correlation for his measurements over three days with the measurements you gathered at the same time? This assumes that he set up measurement devices parallel and run concurrently to yours. Would you be able to share the measure of correlation?

  1051. Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    The measurements practically confirm each other within the margin of error of the instrumentation.
    Besides, the margin of error is insignificant in respect of the COP.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  1052. Dear Andrea,

    My pleasure to send you the daily edition, even if miniatural of my Blog:

  1054. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    There are some discussions going on at the different forums on how LENR exactly works. I would like to know your opinion about this too, so here is my question: Do you think that some form of Hydrogen Rydberg matter plays a role in LENR?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  1055. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    No.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1056. Rick

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Is it possible to separate quarkX? Do you think the LHC of CERN will be able to observe a single quark?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Cheers,
    Rick

  1057. Andrea Rossi

    Rick:
    It is impossible to separate the quarkx. The force that binds them, carried by gluons, increases with the distance you put between them. It is counterintuitive, to make it understandable, let me use this example: think to a spring: the more you pull it, the more force you feel that attracts the two ends; think to the ends as two quarks, bound by the spring and think to the spring as the force carried by the gluons. When you pull, pull, pull, here is what happens: the spring snaps and it turns into two springs, each of them made by two new ends ( quarks) bound by a new spring ( gluon ) each.
    Obviously the model I am proposing is trivial, but allows you to understand the concept.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1058. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Today we complete the test made by the independent engineer.
    We arr going very well, all my data have been confirmed, with minor corrections.

  1059. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the military engineer the same person who came to see you previously, and who helped you solve the problem with the QuarkX reactors overheating? I recall he was from California.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your responses — very interesting.

    I hope that the military will not seek to have exclusive access to your products. Do you think that is a possibility?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  1064. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, this one is another and I work with both of them.
    Warm Regards,

  1065. Ron Stringer

    Dr. Rossi, some people might have concerns about being involved with the military, clearly you do not feel this way. Obviously they can contribute enormously to the development of your reactors, though they might introduce complexities such as secrecy. What is your opinion on working with the military? Do you see them as simply customers like any other?

  1066. Andrea Rossi

    Ron Stringer:
    The engineer who is working with us is not a customer, he is a very skilled man from whom I am learning and that is making a fantastic job with the measurements.
    I prefer military engineers, because their preparation is superior in average.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1067. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    It’s interesting to learn about a third party visit to test the QuarkX.

    1. Is this third party a potential customer or partner?
    2. What was tested, and how long did the test take?
    3. What has been their response to what they have witnessed?
    4. What do you think will be impact on commercialization of your technology?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  1068. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:

    Warm Regards,

  1069. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Do you trust this third party individual implicitly and whole heartedly?

    2 – Will this individual witness the construction of the Quark (s) that are too be tested?

    3 – Will a control or “dummy” Quark be utilized in the testing as a real time comparison?

    4 – Will he be informed as to the fuel composition of the Quark?

    5 – Will he only be testing for thermal output or also electrical?

    6 – Will the test be recorded from start to finish on video?

    7 – Will he be writing a paper about the results of the test, positive or negative?

  1070. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- useless: every system with a COP = 1 or less is comparable
    4- no
    5- thermal
    6- no
    7- no: it is internal
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1071. Matt

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Which are the elementary particles that get mass from the Higgs boson?
    Thank you,
    Matt

  1072. Andrea Rossi

    Matt:
    The particles that get mass in the Higgs field are distinguishable in two cathegories:
    1- the Bosons W and Z: they carry force, as all the Bosons, and affect the weak interactions
    2- the electrically charged Fermions: electron, muon, tau and quarks ( all the flavours of them ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1073. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Why are you convinced that 2017 will be the year for industrial E-Cats to enter the marketplace?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  1074. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- no, he is an engineer from a military concern of the USA
    2- is on course a three days test of the COP and the stability, which means reliability
    3- so far so good ( hoping this is not a case in analogy with the guy arrived at the height of the 3rd floor after falling from the 10th floor )
    4- substantial
    Warm Regards,

  1086. Koen Vandewalle

    If we look at the world in terms of energy, there is complete anarchy. To date, this is still true. The people who had the crucial time of decision in this regard, will not undergo the worst effects.

    For land ownership, water rights, human labor, livestock, aviation, safety and even something virtual like money, copyright, contract law, religion, language … comprehensive fiscal and legal structures were established, nationally and internationally, but almost nothing about energy and very little on raw material consumption.

    Mankind has just implemented exhaustible energy sources and consumed them as acquired, often at the cost to develop them. The residues are dumped on equally anarchic way into the ground, sea and air. And now it appears that this mistake will ruin humanity and beautiful parts of this planet.

    It seems an anomaly in the history of the wisdom of man. How could we do this?

    I would like to contribute to mitigate the consequences. At the appropriate time. With proper preparation. With your technology. For the children.

    Koen

    Apart from the complications of the domestic QuarkX E-Cat product certification process requirements,
    are there more inventions needed to be made before you can produce a domestic heater/electric power home unit?
    Or has your R&D progressed to the point where you feel you can now make a prototype device for testing?

    (I’m looking for a Christmas present in the form of hope for great future product from your team.)

    Again, best of luck on your R&D.

    Dear Andrea,

    From the recent revealed Vessela interview you answered that the QuarkX has a COP 200. Before the resizing of the QuarkX last September it had an input of .5W with an output of 20W for a COP 40. Is this contributed to by the increase heat transfer coefficient of the QuarkX surface area and/or is it due to other factors? Could you give us some insight for this amazing improvement? Thank you.

    Why we had no news about ? :

    House Armed Services Committee Issues Defense Authorization Report – Title II (RDT&E) (Part 2 of 3)

    Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) Briefing

    The committee is aware of recent positive developments in developing low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), which produce ultra-clean, low-cost renewable energy that have strong national security implications. For example, according to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), if LENR works it will be a “disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage.” The committee is also aware of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s (DARPA) findings that other countries including China and India are moving forward with LENR programs of their own and that Japan has actually created its own investment fund to promote such technology. DIA has also assessed that Japan and Italy are leaders in the field and that Russia, China, Israel, and India are now devoting significant resources to LENR development. To better understand the national security implications of these developments, the committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a briefing on the military utility of recent U.S. industrial base LENR advancements to the House Committee on Armed Services by September 22, 2016. This briefing should examine the current state of research in the United States, how that compares to work being done internationally, and an assessment of the type of military applications where this technology could potentially be useful.

    Just one question: You mention that copper is the main ash leftover produced by the QuarkX (which I assume you were referring to). Does this mean that lithium is not the main fuel (and heat producing) component in the QuarkX?

    dear Andrea
    Nel numero precedente della rivista GSE dove sei stato intervistato di recente è comparsa una intervista all’ingegnere Sergio Orlandi (Capo dei lavori di costruzione di ITER!)
    E: Qual è la sua opinione sulla contestata fusione fredda?
    SO: Un approccio ridicolizzato fin dai tempi di Fleischmann e Pons. Il brevetto dell’E-Cat di Andrea Rossi, sta però modificando le cose. Personalmente tendo a dare fiducia a chi lavora e produce ricerca. A patto che si sia sempre trasparenti, nei risultati e nelle sperimentazioni. Forse in tale ambito, queste, non sono sempre state cristalline. Ma è una strada da tenere in grande considerazione.
    Se lo dice lui.
    In the previous issue of the journal GSE where have you been interviewed it appeared an interview with the engineer Sergio Orlandi (Head of the construction of ITER!)
    E: What is your opinion on the disputed cold fusion?
    OS: An approach from ridiculed by Fleischmann and Pons times. The E-Cat patent Andrea Rossi, however, is changing things. Personally I tend to give confidence to those who work and produce research. Provided that it is always transparent, in the results and in the trials. Perhaps in this respect, these have not always been clear. But it is a way to keep in high regard.
    If he says so.

  1117. Andrea Rossi

    Domenico Canino:
    This is a very honest and balanced opinion of the head of the construction of ITER colossal endevour.
    Likewise, I have great respect for the enormous work of the men who are trying to realize the hot fusion. Their greatest challenge is to stabilize the magnetic field that has to confine the energy inside the torus where the nuclear fusion takes place.
    We all are a great team that finalizes the work to find new energy sources to be positively integrated in the energetic system of the mankind. The approach of Sergio Orlandi is intelligent.

    Dear Andrea,
    You have mentioned quite often that getting legislation for an E-cat domistic boiler is quite difficult and I can understand that, because it works on principles that are not known/proven/accepted yet. How can be theoretically proven that it is safe? At this moment in time, it can’t, so you need some other approach. You must have spoken with authorities about this numerous times. Can you tell us under what circumstances they would allow for a domestic E-cat?
    Thank you for answering our questions.

  1124. Dear Andrea,

    About conversion of gammas into electricity. The paper “Controlled extraction of energy from nuclear isomers” (http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a433348.pdf , which is reference number 18 in Wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_isomer ) contains the sentence (page 3, right column, near top): “…These gammas can be converted directly to electricity, by successive Compton scattering collisions in a rad-hard solid-state diode structure such as silicon-carbide (SiC).” In other words, it looks as if the authors think (rightly or wrongly) that converting gammas to electricity would be easy by such method.

    I don’t know if this is signal or noise, whether their insinuation is meaningful or not. Their report is short, scant in details and contains some typos, obscure language and inconsistencies. It wouldn’t pass a peer-review process without modifications. But maybe they wouldn’t write such sentence for nothing. I leave it at that: maybe the sentence rings some bells in your head or maybe not.

    Your smallest building block for the QuarkX is in the size of 20 W. Have you yet decided of what size the commercial building block of QuarkX that can be run separately will be? On the one hand you have experience of 250 kW units but on the other hand you don’t have experience of putting together over 10000 QuarkX units yet. My guess is that you first will work in your R&D with a couple of hundred QuarkX units put together to verify the control loops and the heat transfer.
    Smaller number of QuarkX units with its own temperature transducer, amplifier and control loop will be easier to control, larger number of QuarkX units for a single control loop will be cheaper but not as easy to control. I understand that the size of the QuarkX is also derived from the possibility to control multiple units with one control loop, but a lot of R&D must be done before having a commersial design.
    Of course you understand how much work is left, but I write this for the readers also to understand it and not to wish a Home QuarkX Heater for Christmas this year (or even next year). Realistically, QuarkX Home Heater for selected markets could be available Christmas 2018, if everything works well (F8). Am I right?
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik

    Your insight is intelligent, but we must make a distinction: for the industrial application I am convinced that 2017 will be the yesr, but for the domestic applications the situation is made much more difficult by the certification issues.

    I a blog has been put in discussion the authenticity of the names of many of the comments published in this blog. What do you say?

  1141. Andrea Rossi

    Honestly, I am obviously aware of the fact that many names are just pseudonymes, as it is custom in the blogs, but I do not think it is important. What counts is what a comment says, not what is the signature of it.

    Dear Andrea,

    The pressures you face each day are monumental and can damage you if you allow them to do so. I know you are very strong, and endure very well, but some of your family (here on JoNP) worry about you very much. Me included. One possible prescription would be a dose of holy spirit, served as prescribed below (in Italian). It’s how I deal with stress:

    Prescription: Matthew 18:18-20. (Quoted at the bottom for you.)

    Next: Pick a health care provider. Research the facility before you make the appointment. I recommend:
    https://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/meetings/video-kingdom-hall/

    Next: Pick the date. Preferably with a provider that speaks Italian, perhaps on Sunday at 10:00am, as in your neighborhood. Bring a friend if you like, or meet some new friends.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Hallandale+Beach+Italian+Congregation+of+Jehovah%27s+Witnesses&oq=Hallandale+Beach+Italian+Congregation+of+Jehovah%27s+Witnesses&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60l3&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Next: How far away is it? (answer: about 18 minutes)
    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Wynwood,+Miami,+FL/121+SW+10th+Ave,+Hallandale+Beach,+FL+33009/@25.8948816,-80.3072144,11z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x88d9b6ad484cd171:0x473f056dc3e10be9!2m2!1d-80.1989186!2d25.8042441!1m5!1m1!1s0x88d9ac74731e66cb:0x643dc767754644dc!2m2!1d-80.1611165!2d25.9837206

    Why are you telling me this, Tom? “For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst.” These are the words of Jesus Christ, recorded for us in the Holy Bible.

    Matthew 18:18-20
    18 “Truly I say to you, whatever things you may bind on earth will be things already bound in heaven, and whatever things you may loosen on earth will be things already loosened in heaven. 19 Again I tell you truly, if two of you on earth agree concerning anything of importance that they should request, it will take place for them on account of my Father in heaven. 20 For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst.”

    http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/s/r1/lp-e?q=PHILIPPIANS+4%3A6&fc%5B%5D=g&p=par
    Philippians 4:6, 7: “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers.” —Philippians 4:6, 7

    Try the above experiment. It works for me. It also works regularly for 8,220,000 people.

    We dare not hope yet again for the robots to begin manufacturing anymore, it seems to be the impossible dream after all this time. So then, I’ve tried to figure out what would be a gigantic step forward, and as of this moment I’m pretty sure your going to announce that you have figured out a new technique to allow you to achieve a probability of more than 3,499,999 out of 3,500,000 returns from you on the tennis court while playing against your wife will actually score a point, and generate lots of love.

    I hope I’m right, because all we need is love. I heard that in a song, and I read it in a book too. Don’t let me forget to thank you for finding time to respond to your blog readers, that is a wonderful kindness. Thank you!

    Dear Andrea,
    Europe is moving forward with new proposals on Clean Energy with far reaching implications.
    The full article:
    http://ec.europa.eu/news/2016/11/20161130_en.htm
    The actual Clean Energy proposals:
    Clean Energy for All Europeans
    The European Commission today presents a package of measures to keep the European Union competitive as the clean energy transition is changing the global energy markets.
    The European Commission wants the EU to lead the clean energy transition, not only to adapt to it. For this reason the EU has committed to cut CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 while modernising the EU’s economy and delivering on jobs and growth for all European citizens.
    Today’s proposals have three main goals:
    putting energy efficiency first,
    achieving global leadership in renewable energies, and
    providing a fair deal for consumers. 
    Consumers are active and central players on the energy markets of the future. Consumers across the EU will in the future have a better choice of supply, access to reliable energy price comparison tools and the possibility to produce and sell their own electricity. Increased transparency and better regulation give more opportunities for civil society to become more involved in the energy system and respond to price signals. The package also contains a number of measures aimed at protecting the most vulnerable consumers.
    The Clean Energy for All Europeans legislative proposals cover energy efficiency, renewable energy, the design of the electricity market, security of electricity supply and governance rules for the Energy Union. In addition the Commission proposes a new way forward for Ecodesign as well as a strategy for connected and automated mobility.  
    The package also includes actions to accelerate clean energy innovation and to renovate Europe’s buildings. It provides measures to encourage public and private investment, promote EU industrial competitiveness and mitigate the societal impact of the clean energy transition. We are also exploring ways in which the EU can show further leadership in clean energy technology and services to help third countries achieve their policy goals.
    The Commission’s “Clean Energy for All Europeans” proposals are designed to show that the clean energy transition is the growth sector of the future – that’s where the smart money is. Clean energies in 2015 attracted global investment of over 300 billion euros. The EU is well placed to use our research, development and innovation policies to turn this transition into a concrete industrial opportunity. By mobilising up to 177 billion euros of public and private investment per year from 2021, this package can generate up to 1% increase in GDP over the next decade and create 900,000 new jobs.

    Dear Andrea,
    I believe that reaching 5 sigma is very much time related but possibly also related to the test program you have to perform. I am sure that it may take more time in case things go wrong, but can you tell:
    1. Is February the shortest estimated time that you can perform the 5 Sigma test or
    If some things take shorter:
    2. The 5 Sigma may be reached earlier?
    In both cases assuming F8, of course
    Thank you for answering our questions and again good luck with the tests!

    It’s great to hear that you’re on the way to 5 sigma with the Quark(x). I know you are extremely busy with product development as well as the IH lawsuit. A fascinating read is “The Wright Brothers” by David McCullough,a NY Times best seller. After recently reading this documentary, I was amazed by the Wright brothers unending work ethic and their determination and perseverance to achieve human flight that was deemed impossible after centuries of futile attempts. Their successful journey appears to parallel both your efforts and obstacles incurred to date. If you haven’t read this historical chronicle, it might be something to provide mental relief after another losing tennis match.

    in Italy there is a passionate political campaign for the referendum. The question is to approve the constitutional reforms or not. I do not know if you will be in Italy on Sunday to vote, it would be nice, however what idea you’ve had, it’s time to do some reform and vote YES, or you see them as a problem and then vote NO.
    Of course, answer the question only if you want and if you like.

    ________________

    Janne,

    I believed in dangerous man-made climate change for over 30 years; then I realized it was all a big mistake. “Climate change” is now a powerful bandwagon and lobbying organization fueled by politics and many billions of dollars in profit motive for scientists, reporters writing scare stories, and windmill, solar, and biofuel companies. It has also become a new age nature worshipping religion, a replacement for Christianity in the West to at least some small degree. Man-made localized surface climate change due to land use change is 100% proven. Global dangerous climate change due to atmospheric CO2 levels is a million and one miles from being proven. Real scientists do not rely on wild speculation and they do not brand disbelievers as “heretics” and “traitors”. Those are the common terms of religious intolerance, not proper scientific language. When you dispose of the scientific method, you replace real science with junk science, which is of no use to any honest person. Please watch my compilation YouTube video from beginning to end and you may find good reason to relax a little.

    Dear Andrea,

    It has been confirmed straight from the horse’s mouth that climate change denial will be the official policy of Trump’s administration:

    https://thinkprogress.org/trump-climate-change-bunk-28c5c44cee

    We now need your E-Cat more than ever!

    I also find it opportune at this point to talk about solar. You’ve previously gone on record saying that if solar cannot stand on its own without subsidies, then per the laws of the free market economy it must be useless. Ignoring the massive subsidies already in place for fossil fuels and the unpriced CO2 emissions externalities, even unsubsidized solar is now becoming very competitive. However, this is not to say that solar wouldn’t benefit from an added push from which we could reap the benefits in the years to come. It’s all a question of: “Do we want a cleaner, more sustainable environment sooner or eventually?”

    Observe the following graph:

    http://c1cleantechnicacom-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/files/2014/09/cumulative-solar-power-growth-globally.png

    As you can see, in the past 15 years (!) we have gone from 1.4 GW to ~240 GW of global installed photovoltaic capacity–a factor of 170 increase! No other energy form on this planet, sans your E-Cat, has demonstrated the potential for similar exponential growth. However, at the start of this process solar panels were still extremely expensive. Related, there is something called “Swanson’s Law”, which states that for every doubling of cumulative shipped volume, the price of solar photovoltaic modules tends to drop 20 percent. We can infer from this that today’s solar panels cost only a fraction of what they cost in the year 2000. Had there been no subsidies early on, the point where solar is now hyper-competitive in sunny parts of the world–the latest record being the incredibly low bid of 2.42 cents/kwh for solar electricity in Abu Dhabi, which is an unsubsidized price by the way–would have been delayed by possibly decades.

    Soon at 1.5% of the world’s electricity production and doubling in capacity every 3 years (actually faster than that for the past 20 years), solar has the potential to be the great engine of prosperity for the 21st century–again, barring your E-Cat–but to reach its unparallelled power we must first manually prime the pump. This is not an inherent negative in the technology, but a normal law of industry and economics of scale, of which I am sure you are intimately familiar with.

    Best Regards,

    Janne

    Why it doesn’t surprise me at all?

    Dear Andrea,

    May or may not be relevant to your lawsuit. I know you cannot comment on this.

    The post (#2838) is captioned
    “Antonio LaGatta and John T Vaughn have incorporated HMRI R&D Inc in North Carolina”

    Google “lenr-forum 2838” or else click the link below, hopefully both work.

    Warm regards,
    Tom

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Probably you do not know that Mr La Gatta, of ENEA, Italian taxpayer maintained concern, is now working for IH in Raleigh. They are trying to make up a competition against you, using the information IH gave to La Gatta and ENEA to replicate your technology. This all is finalized to get from Italian Government funds graciously supplied from the taxpayer of Italy, to steal your technology, and, at the same time, to fool the investors of IH, Cherokee Fund Partners and Woodford, making them believe that there is a big team making big things, where big things stand for stealing your IP.
    From an insider,
    have a great week, Andrea!

    1- was property of the ERV the flowmeter by means of which have been made the measurements on the 1 MW plant?
    2- did the ERV himself install it?
    3- have ever been installed beside it any other flowmeters by IH or Leonardo?
    Cheers,

  1234. Gerald Cromwell

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    look at this: Chile’s government has started a R&D on LENR, Bill Gates has started an R&D on LENR, in Europe in Italy the association of engineers has started a permanent updating course on LENR, and in France Airbus has started an R&D on LENR, in Russia after Dr Parkhomov has been started an R&D on LENR, in China the Atomic Institute has started an R&D on LENR, in Japan Mitsubishi has started an R&D on LENR, in South Korea Hiunday has started an R&D on LENR, etc, etc: all this thanks to your immense work: before your test of January 2011 LENR were ridiculized from the very people that today are financing all these R&Ds. This too is a legacy of yours.
    Please continue your great job,
    Gerald

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with solving the control problem of one of the QuarkX’s. I hope with you that no other problems occur till 5 Sigma is reached.
    Just a few questions if I may:
    1. Does the LENR process causes EMC problems on its control system?
    2. You said that you would not produce electricity, just heat units. Does that mean that you leave the development of a QuarkX-turbine to others?
    3. Is there any sight on when the trial takes place?
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  1239. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- no
    2- the jet engine is still at an early stage
    3- the trial is already on course and it is in its preliminary stage
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea.
    Is it your intension to produce complete units for electrical power production? If so, witch type of machinery will be used to drive the generator?
    1, A steam turbine?
    2, A Rankine machine with other fluid than water?
    3, A Stirling engine?
    4, Other solutions?
    5, Will a larger battery capacity be included?
    Regards Svein Henrik

  1245. Andrea Rossi

    Svein Henrik:
    No, we will not produce electric generation plants, we’ll supply the heat generator.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1246. Roslyn Abrams

    Dr Rossi,

    Many still don’t understand Darden/IH’s move in not paying you your 90 million. It just doesn’t make business sense?

    Here is one scenario mentioned:

    “To get the data cheap and then kill off the technology path to public access and hide the technology behind a pay wall. The permanent enslavement of the human race to high-cost energy in a free energy world.”

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Best
