    Can you give us information about the charges of the 1 MW plant:
    1- did you recover the charges?
    2- are you analyzing them?
    3- can you share the results?

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi.
    My grandson went to college yesterday in the specialty “Heat engineering and heat supply”, I am glad that this is your influence!
    I read your blog from the first day (since September 2015) (remember, I sometimes ask questions).
    Thank you for taking the time to respond.
    You somehow praised my Italian, thank you, but in English I only write with Google!
    I’m glad if you read it, and I’ll be happy to answer:
    1. Everything you said about E-Cat and the Carnot cycle, you can forget? But why? In the end, physics does not change, our perception is dying.
    2. Can we forget about E-Cat for internal needs for many years because of problems with certification?
    But what is left ?!
    (security?)

    Yrka:
    I am very glad to have inspired a young man to study scientific matters! Good luck to him for his education. Russia has great scientific schools, they are among the best of the world and I am sure your grandson will become a great engineer if he will put all of himself in the cursus studiorum.
    Answers:
    1- I did not forget the Carnot Cycle, on the contrary I said it is still the best way to make electric energy with heat in general
    2- The industrial applications have already been certified. We have to be patient for the domestic ones.

  10. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Does your reply to Colin Watters regarding the dolphins killing the sharks that try to kill them mean you are building some kind of self-destruct mechanism into the E-Cats if they are tampered with?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  11. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, I was talking of reliability.
    Warm Regards,

  12. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    Can you explain what you mean by “5 sigma” in the context of the QX? As I recall it means different things if you are talking about reliability (less than one defect in about 4000 units) or the chance of a result occurring by accident (<1 in 3.5million). Are you cycling a QX on and off 3.5 million times? Is that what is needed to claim 5 sigma? Thanks.

  13. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    We are cycling QX with different cycles a number of times that is due to reach Sigma 5 without issues that need more than several hours to be fixed and without exceeding a due frequency. Everytime we find a problem, we do not just fix it, but we make modifications to prevent it to to return. I calculated the parameters that make me sure before accepting the risk to send E-Cats out of home to enjoy their freedom of life. Since they will be dolphins among sharks, they must be genetically modified to be able to kill the sharks that will try to kill them.

    Svein Henrik,

    The conversion of energy is well known to all. Solar Cells convert sunlight to electricity. Hydroelectric (falling water) convert potential energy from gravity to electricity. Burning coal also produces electricity and, in addition, excess heat and carbon dioxide plus other pollutants, nuclear produces electricity and excess heat plus nuclear waste storage issues, wind powered generates produce electricity plus dead birds. A theoretical E-Cat powered plant will likely produce electricity plus unknown pollutants? Who knows until it changes from the theoretical into reality.

    The question is what is the effect on the environment (good or bad) for the benefit of the usable power generated for mankind? E-Cat technology, if real, looks very promising. If it really words, if it can be scaled up to commercial levels, if it is really controllable and safe. Unlike wind or solar, E-Cat based power generation looks promising for baseload electric power generation – constant output power, day and night, with a relatively low cost of operation. As Andrea has pointed out many, many times, the energy solution will be an integrated approach.

  16. Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea
    Your answer to Ing M. De Meo of 08.13.2017 at 2:29 PM is of great important to all energy consumers.
    The fact that no powerplants do produce energy but only transform the energy to a different form than originally, seems to be unknown for most of the environmentalists.
    By doing this most powerplants consume a lot of energy and partly transform great parts of the original energy to non-usable forms. Even the electricity itself is not energy. Electricity is only an energy carrier. We will not get a single watt from the wires without an input of more watts in the other end simultaneously.
    All forms of energy transportation do consume energy and thereby represents expensive losses.
    Energy are mainly consumed in small quantities, as by lightbulbs, room heaters, cars, machinery etc.
    That makes small energy sources very interesting. The grid and other transport may thereby be possible to be partly avoided. In this context is the E-catQX favorable like small batteries and solar power cells.
    The QX will be far more important for the mankind than the transistors and the LED-lamps and will, by the time, change the world more than these have done.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Your measurement system described in the Gullstrom-Rossi paper is perfect. The circuit is very simple, the plasma is a conductor, as everybody knows, therefore placing a resistance with a known ohmage and measuring the voltage across it, the current is obtained by the Ohm equation, as well as the wattage.
    Godspeed
    Silver

  22. Andrea Rossi

    Silver:
    Correct.

  23. Giorgio

    Dear Dr. Rossi

    In your paper “Nucleon polarizability and long range strong force from σI=2 meson exchange potential”, I have noted an interesting point on the role of electron as “carrier of the nucleon”:

    “A less probable alternative to the long range potential is if the e-N coupling
    in the special EM field environment would create a strong enough binding to
    compare an electron with a full nuclide. In this hypothesis, no constraints on
    the target nuclide are set, and nucleon transition to excited states in the target
    nuclide should be possible.
    In other words these two views deals with the electrons role. One is as a
    carrier of the nucleon and the other is as a trigger for a long range potential
    of the nucleon”.

    Now, in the Iwamura experiment the CaO layer is hundreds of atomic layers far from the area near the surface where the atoms to be transmuted are deposited or implanted. Therefore, it is important to find a mechanism that explains the action at a distance and the role of CaO, the breaking of the Coulomb barrier and the usual absence of intense nuclear radiation typical of the LENR.

    An interesting hypothesis might arise from considering the formation of ultra-dense deuterium near the calcium oxide layer, where the high difference in work function between Pd and CaO favors the formation of a dense electron layer (SEL).

    Ultra-dense deuterium “atoms” are picometric structures, formed by a deuteron and an electron, that can easily migrate to the area where the nuclei to be transmuted (Cs or Sr) have been implanted. In this case the electrons can be seen as the “carriers” of the deuterons. A quite similar concept has been proposed by G. Bettini in the JONP paper “How can 30% of nickel in Rossi’s reactor be transmuted into copper?”

    This hypothesis seems to me more realistic than the hypothesis of formation of di-neutrons from a nuclear capture of the electron, considering that the neutron mass is much higher than the sum of proton and electron masses.
    Ultra-dense deuterium “mini-atoms”, having no charge but a relatively “long range” high magnetic momentum, according to this hypothesis, may be considered good candidates as the very cause of the transmutation of Cs in Pr and Sr in Mo.

  28. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I guess you must have thought of it by now, so maybe you can give us some insight how you see the Leonardo Company developing.
    1. Do you want to limit the production just to E-cat QX modules of different sizes and shapes and have other companies developing it to e.g. heating units (industrial, domestic), power generation units, car drive units, etc. or
    2 Do you want to do all this yourself or
    3. Combination of these?
    Thank you for sharing this with your followers.

  30. domenico canino

    Dear Andrea,
    The journalist Steven Greer says on his blog, disclosure project:
    “We believe … there’s a fellow name Rossi, in Italy, who has a device that generates apparently overunity excess energy and heat, although no one knows the mechanism and action. He’s keeping it a trade secret. Very big, and probably fatal, fatal error.
    “And so I would say, yes, there are people out there who are working on it, some who I believe have. I have a friend at Stanford University who knows a man at the National Security Agency who confided that they are tracking what Rossi is doing very carefully, which indicates to me that where there’s smoke, there’s fire”.

  34. Lars

    Dear Dr. Rossi.
    Did the now resolved problems with E-Cat QX you mentioned, caused the goal of reaching sigma 5 to be interrupted?
    Can you say anything of what kind of problem it was?
    Thank you.

  35. Colin Watters

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    If your work succeeds then surely it won’t be long before most power stations stop using hydrocarbon based fuel?

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    It depends which meaning you couple the word “long” with.
    I must repeat that it will be necessary to integrate all the existing systems, along a dynamic dialectic evolution of synthesis made by series of thesis and antithesis.
    Consider that the CEO of a great company told me several years ago that only to get the certifications for my technology to be applied to cars and trucks it will take at least 20 years from the time when the product is ready at least as a prototype.

  38. Andrea Rossi

    Ing Michelangelo De Meo:
    I am not as much convinced. Besides, I am confused: to charge the batteries you need to plug them to the grid. The electric energy that you draw from the grid comes from the power plants. The power plants use mostly hydrocarbons. Add the fact that the efficiency of the entire cycle of processes to charge the batteries is low and tell me: what’s the point? What’s the advantage for the environment, if any? Forgot to say: the taxpayer will pay for the unavoidable low efficiency of this system.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Had you to explain to freshmen of Physics why the Sun shines, what would you say in a nutshell along the Rossi-simplified-style?
    Cheers

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Noah Monzingo:
    “The sun is made of elementary particles that crash against each other with enough energy to stick together, converting at least some of them into different particles by emitting yet new particles. These last particles would be massless if it was not for a field lurking everywhere that breaks the symmetry that affects the associated force. The fusion of the original particles releases energy that we perceive as sunlight”

  43. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    Suppose, like a burned out light bulb, that one of the possible failure modes of a single QX was an “open circuit” (across what you described as the zero-resistance plasma-like region):
    would that particular failure mode cause the failure of the entire cluster, given the way that you’re thinking of designing it?
    Thanks, WaltC

  44. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    I don’t think so.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  45. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Just a few questions, if you allow me.
    1. For the demo in October you have been testing the E-cat QX20 cluster for some time now. Are you satisfied with their multiple performance?
    2. You have said that the E-cat QX has a very low resistance. From control point of view I would assume that you operate a cluster with all QX’s in series. I that assumption correct?
    3. Is reaching 5 sigma essential for the demonstration?
    4. Is cluster testing a part of the 5 sigma test?
    I hope you and your team can soon selebrate the succesful finish of the 5 sigma test!
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea,

    In my previous question, I meant the power consumption compared to when only one QX was being operated by the control system.

    Thank you!

  48. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Depends on many factors that now I cannot explain.
    In general, the answer is no.

  49. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Is the power consumption of the control system affected when you combine multiple E-Cat QX units together (you have mentioned you can run 100 QXs from one controller)?

    Dear Andrea,

    Based on your comment to Prof about the resistance of the E-Cat QX, would it be accurate to say that the E-Cat QX is a superconductor?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  62. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No.
    Superconductivity is a completely different thing.
    Obviously my “zero” was not absolute, it was jargon for good conductor ( otherwise I wouldn’t write it in letters). I just wanted to say that it is a good conductor, like copper, so that its resistance ( that cannot be R = 0 ) does not affect the circuit.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  63. Rick

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Can you explain in your way a model how the Higgs field breaks the symmetry and gives mass to elementary particles?
    You did it already years ago, but I forgot and have to explain to young kids
    Thanks if you can help

  64. Andrea Rossi

    Rick:
    Tom Conover has reminded me what I wrote in past ( I had forgot ).
    Let me try something maybe simpler.
    Imagine a lake inside a big sphere wherein vacuum has been made.
    Inside these sphere you have, floating upon the surface of the lake, sailboats. Some of the boats have big sails, some no sails at all ( forgot them at home), some small sails.
    Until there is the vacuum and perfect still, you have a perfect symmetry, every boat moves as every one else, same speed, same energy. Symmetry!
    Now imagine this: for some reasons ( for example the wrath of gods ) air enters in the sphere, vacuum is lost and physical effects are introduced, like differences of temperature, pressure, electricity. All symmetries are broken and every break of a symmetry generates particular fields, like electromagnetic field, temperature field, pressure field…and Higgs field. Every field gives birth to forces, for example temperature makes hot air go up, cold air go down, e.m. makes positive charges go one way, negative the opposite, lower pressure makes objects get loose, high pressure makes objects get closer, etc. The Higgs makes the small sailed boats don’t give a dam about it, the big sailed boats get stuck in it, becoming massive, because they now are subject to the wind and “feel” their mass.
    Put this in analogy with electromagnetic fields , strong force fields, weak force fields and gravitational fields with the elementary particles and remember that these models are very superficial. Obviously “temperature fields” do not exist, as well as pressure fields and, most of all, they do not generate what in Physics is rigorously considered a “force”. But I hope the model can help to understand what is Simmetry and what means to break a Simmetry and why it is so important. In nuclear Physics we have four fudsamental fields that when their symmetry is broken work as follows::
    electromagnetic field, affects positive e.p. one way, negative the opposite
    gravitational field, affect every e.p. the same way
    strong interactions field: affects quarks and gluons
    weak interactions field, affects all the fermions of the standard model and the Higgs boson
    Should the symmetries not get broken, life in this Universe would be very boring. Like LENR without me. I am a simmetry breaker ( and not only symmetries).

    @ Rick (I thought I should review too, so here is what I found.)

    Here are two of Andrea’s comments on symmetry and mass for you.
    ———–
    From: Andrea Rossi
    April 17, 2017 at 8:34 AM
    Jackson Sweeney:
    You must make a distinction between Global Symmetry and Local Symmetry.
    The G.S. is shown uniformly, everywhere, at the same time and makes
    us aware of interactions on course, but its role is passive, it does
    not bring new forces in the fields.
    L.S. shows up separately, at every point and leads to new forces:
    without it the Universe as it is could not exist, because e.p. would
    remain as they are, without interactions: the life ( if any) would
    be very boring. Master in local symmetry breaking is the Higgs
    field, that with its waves ( Higgs Bosons) makes a storm in the
    Universe Ocean, and this storm makes a mess through the fields of
    the elementary particles fiving mass to some of them, rupturing
    symmetries around…imagine the perfest symmetry of a cloud of black
    ink cenospheres be turned into the Guernica of Picasso ! That’s life !
    Warm Regards,

    April 4, 2017 at 7:38 AM
    Minh:
    I do not remember which model I described, but let’s try this, the
    same of before or not as it might be: think to an empty tube filled
    by clean and calm water: we’ll call it “value zero tube”, because
    the water is clean and calm, there is nothing inside except the
    water molecules. If you distribute grains of nanometric metal powder
    uniformly on the surface of this water, the grains will sink
    uniformly and symmetrically from the top to the bottom of the tube.
    This is the model of a zero value field in vacuum through which
    elementary particles pass through without breaking any symmetry,
    without changing their status.
    Now imagine to repeat the experiment in the same tube, but this time
    with strong waves inside that pervade the volume of the water inside
    the tube. This is the model of the Higgs field: now the tube has not
    zero value, because now the water is not calm, the waves build up a
    “value”. Repeat the experiment of before with the same powder, and
    you’ll see that this time the grains do not sink uniformly, but they
    “break the symmetry”, they are slowed down by the opposing waves,
    they crash against each other, they make up bigger grains adhering
    to each other: in a word, they “get mass”. As we said, the tube with
    wavery water, in this case, is the model of the Higgs field, while
    the waves are the models of the Higgs Bosons that arise from the
    Higgs field.

    If elemental particles consist of waves in fields, just like wifi, then possibly the Higgs Bosons are the wifi-routers.
    But what information are they transmitting ? Is there a time or place where the information is going or where it comes from ?
    Can we receive or send information via the Higgs Bosons ?

    Dear Andrea,
    What I was trying to suggest when I indicated that GE could be helpful to your program, is that they have constructed the means to produce large quantities of small alumina tubes that are sealed and undergo high temperatures that are capable of thousands of hours of use. I assume that they use an automated line for their production. They may be able to either aid you in the assembly of your production line, or perhaps construct your device in large quantities with a high degree of quality control.
    Product assurance regards.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Your measurement system to define the wattage in the circuit of the E-Cat QX, made by a power source plus 2 resistances is correct:
    https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/measuring-resistance-in-circuit-and-out/
    In pag. 5 is drawn exactly the schematic of your circuit.
    If the E-Cat has no resistance, the circuit becomes just a circuit with one resistance.
    Godspeed

  78. Andrea Rossi

    Electric Engineer:
    Correct.
    Warm Regards

  79. Dear Andrea.
    If you have ever watched the live Royal Institution Christmas lectures you will be convinced that they are very professional in their visual presentation and have a gift for making difficult concepts simple to understand and to show fascinating and stimulating demonstrations with their apparatus.

    It occurs to me that you may find it very useful to approach them for ideas for your October 2017 Qx demonstration. It is possible that you and your team may overlook some wonderful aspect of presentation that will really enhance your show.

    They have had so much experience with this type of thing that their participation/advice would, I’m sure, be very valuable to you. Naturally ,there are very good people in the USA too and extra input will help you to provide a first class presentation that everyone will understand easily throughout the English-speaking world. A lot is riding on this event.

    I hope this thought has been helpful. Best wishes for the future. Jean Pierre

    First of all, congratulations for your work, I’ve been following this story for six years now and I hope it’s the energy revolution I dream of.
    A question, with a new, cheap source of energy, is not the risk that we will considerably increase the thermal energy released into the environment?
    Of course, with new energy limits, there will also be applications to overcome this.
    Or are my expectations too high and your invention will not be so life-changing?
    Best Regards.

  82. Andrea Rossi

    The heat is produced where and when it is necessary, independently from the heat source. Our source does not produce carbon dioxyde and other pollutants, though.

    “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things, because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old condition, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new. – Machiavelli, 1513

    Dear Andrea
    Have you ever consulted with GE about their work with a product they call Lucalox?
    It is a material made of alumina that they form into a tube to produce a light source containing Sodium, Xenon, and a bit of Mercury that results in a high efficiency light output.
    I used their material in 1965 in a project to successfully produce large quantities of Infra red using Cesium as a fill material. The tube had nickel end caps and was powered by RF energy.
    GE claims long life for their device.
    Best wishes for your efforts.

    In Japan your effect has been repeatedly replicated!
    See below:

    Interim Report for the H28 fiscal year of H-27-29 program
    R&D Subjective: Leading Program for Energy and Environment
    Sub-theme: Analysis and control of new thermal energy by metal-hydrogen
    interaction
    Reporters: The 6 parties of teams from Technova Inc., Nissan Motors Co, Kyushu University,
    Tohoku University, Nagoya University and Kobe University
    To re-confirm and obtain basic data on the previously claimed anomalously high-energydensity
    heat release effect (AHE) by the interaction of hydrogen gas and Ni-based nanometal
    composite samples, the following program was implemented by the 6 parties for the
    H28(2016 Oct to 2017 March) period. The target to obtain thermal energy density more than
    2 MJ/mol-H has been cleared with much enhanced energy density (ca. 200 MJ/mol-D for
    instance), by collaboration studies for CNS (Cu-Ni/ silica), CNZ(Cu-Ni/zirconia) and PNZ
    (Pd-Ni/zirconia) series samples at 200-300 degree C operation temperatures.
    1) New experimental calorimetry system (new MHE facility) for metal hydrogen-gas
    interaction was installed in June H28 in Tohoku University, and the initial running tests in
    July and implemented the first experiment with PNZ-type sample to observe and confirm
    the previously claimed Technova-Kobe results of AHE, with less than 1.5% error in
    calorimetry. The new experimental system was totally established in August 2016 (H28).
    Collaboration study by the 6 parties was implemented with 10 test experiments in the
    H28 period, using the MHE facilities at Kobe University and Tohoku University, for
    metal nano-composite samples which were fabricated by the meltspinning/oxidation
    technique to have provided PNZ-type and CNZ-type samples.
    PS-type (Pd /silica) and CNS-type samples provided by the wet technique at
    Kyushu University, Nagoya University and Kobe University were also tested. AHE
    phenomena were observed in most experiments except for using PS-type samples.
    Observed AHE data showed ca. 5-200 MJ/mol-H(or D for PNZ-type) level high
    thermal energy density for several days sustaining power (ca.4-20 W level) .
    Material analyses by XRD, SEM and STEM/EDS for every sample before and after the hydrogencharge
    run have been done by the 6 parties. Interesting nano-structure data have been obtained
    in the view of controlling the sustainable AHE phenomena of nano-composite metal and
    hydrogen gas interaction.

    Hi Andrea,

    I recall that you hope to industrialize the production late 2017 or early 2018, from earlier posts. That is great and inspires your readers and scientists throughout the world in fact.

    Thank you again for the time you take to respond in this blog. It is very unusual to find such an open attitude about research in this complex world we live in. Re your reply earlier: ‘Proceed the R&D finalized to the industrialization.’ is hard for me to understand, sorry.

    Perhaps you could help me out with these two questions.
    A) Do you think the R&D will become finalized (by November 15,2017 or sooner) for the first product launch immediately if the presentation in October this year if the R&D is now acceptable to investors? (Y/N)

    B) Do you think the manufacturing begin immediately (before April of 2018 or sooner) if the presentation in October this year is successful in getting one or more large investors? (Y/N)

    Thank you for your kindness if you can answer these questions to help me to understand better!

    Warm Regards,

    Tom

  113. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    What I meant is that to complete the process of industrialization is necessary more R&D for the many complex issues that have to be resolved. If your question is: “when the heck will start this hecking industrialization?” the answer is: I can guess within 2018. In the meantime industrial plants will be made, albeit at higher costs and prices compared to a massive production. This is, as far as I know, an honest answer.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A point design for your October demonstration

    1. Use a Stenner Peristatic pump running at 17 gpd or 0.7448 ml/sec
    2. Assume +75C temperature change (inlet temperature around 20C) for the water
    3. Power needed = 75C * 4.184 J/(K*ml) * 0.7448 ml / sec = 233W of thermal power
    4. Assume maximum ECAT-QX output of 23W, so 10 reactors running in parallel from a single controller.

  125. Michael S

    Dear Andrea,

    First off all congrats for settling your lawsuit with IH – These legal procedures drain much spiritual capacity and you need all of it for much more important things.

    I dont know if this has already been discussed but could I suggest you to do a public « Hot coffee off the grid demonstration », maybe in parallel to the more scientific one you are planning.

    From what I read in your recent posts Ecat QX could go off the grid working with 2 x 12V batteries. In order to convince the public that there is no manipulation (big 12V batteries could be fiddled with and have quite some W/h in storage – see hereunder) I suggest the setup could be 3 x 9 volt alkaline or lithium–ion batteries in line feeding 27V Dc. The total Watt/h in a standard alkaline 9V batteries is about 500ma x 9 = 4,5 Wh. With three such batteries in line you would have a total of max 13,5 Wh at your disposal which is maybe enough to power the Ecat QX(’s). It needs about 600 W/h to cook the Bialetti 12 cups of coffee (775 Milliliters; https://www.amazon.com/Original-Bialetti-Stovetop-Espresso-Patented/dp/B000FDL588 ). So there is no way these three 9V batteries could boil this coffee if not thanks to the ecat-heat.

    Max energy content in a 9V battery : it weighs 35-45 grams. Max energy content if Lithium Ion bat. is 300 W/h/KG x 0,045 = 13,5 W/h (I presume +-same mass weight of chemistries). 3 batteries in line therefore +-40 W/h => still far off 600W/h needed to cook the coffee.
    Max energy content in 12V battery : 12V 45 Amp lead-acid battery stores 540 Wh. Two in line store 1080 W/h. Its much more with Lithium ion of the same size. So you could be able to cook the 775 milliliters coffee at least with lithium Ion battery and induction plates.

    You could invite your guests to a very special Italian coffee which will be remembered.… If nicely/professionally filmed and edited it would make for a Video capsule that could go viral on youtube.
    You could ask your guests to bring new sealed 9V Alkaline packs with them and then use randomly three of these.

    If you like the idea and it is realistic dont publish it, but I would love to be invited to such a historic moment ;-). And of course meet and exchange ideas with you !

    All the best in these coming months & best regards,

    Michael S.

  126. Andrea Rossi

    Michael S.:
    First and foremost, thank you for your kindness and attention to our work.
    Answer: the energy consumed will be measured AFTER the power source, which means between the power source and the E-Cat !
    From where arrives the energy to the power source or IN it doesn’t matter to the COP: what matters is only the amount of it. If it arrives from a battery, or a series of batteries, or a multiple sandwich of batteries, or from a magician, or from the grid, therefore from a dam, or a nuclear plant, or a thermoelectric plant, or yourself in parallel and series with friends of yours rubbing frenziedly, even with the help of me hidden behind black courtains, a stock of amber sticks, it couldn’t affect the COP. What counts is how many Wh/h arrive to the E-Cat, not their origin.
    About the plat you suggest, it will be fun when the E-Cat will go commercial.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  127. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,
    Back on the topic of neutrinos– according to your current LENR theory, do you think that LENR might produce neutrinos?

    It seems possible; one of the dominant reactions in the sun is: 2 protons –> deuteron + positron + electron neutrino.

    If so, the E-Cat QX could become a highly compact device for generating neutrinos, which could have all sorts of interesting applications (especially given the newly announced low energy neutrino detection device).

    Interesting to think about, at the least.
    Thanks, WaltC

  128. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    The temperature of the E-Cat QX reaches above the mass of neutrinos, therefore, theoretically, in the fields of neutrinos waves could be formed corresponding to neutrinos and antineutrinos ( antimatter ).

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    To measure the amount of energy that flows in a circuit composed by the power source and two resistances of which one has a known ohmage and one has not, you have to measure the voltage across the known R and once you have the voltage, you make V/R and you have the amps. Then, making V x A, you know how much energy you have in the circuit. By the first principle of thermodynamics, the energy cannot be more than that in any point of the circuit, but it can be less if the resistances dissipate energy in form of heat.
    Is it this you are doing?

  133. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    Early E-Cat designs had a resistor heating the charge, triggering the reaction.
    Now it seems that the ECat QX has the resistor in series with the charge.
    It seems that the resistor act as a current limiter and the charge is mostly metallic, with low resistance.
    So it seems that the reaction is now triggered by electrical current flowing in the charge.
    The old mechanism was triggered by heat, so I suppose that a part of the reaction is triggered by resistor heat, a part from direct resistive heat of the charge and (this is new) a part from direct electrical current flowing in the charge.
    Old ECat was stimulated by “frequencies”, that indeed produced induced currents in the charge, but AC, so the only difference is than now the current in the charge is DC (a DC current can’t be induced by coils)
    1) Am I correct saying that the QX is in series with the 1 ohm resistor and the charge resistance is very low?
    2) Is the electrical current in the charge the main stimulation source for the reaction?
    3) In what percentage?
    4) Is DC current in the charge more effective (in terms of COP, stability, etc) than induced AC current?
    5) Further thoughts?

  139. Dr. Rossi:
    The question by Mario Mariani is valid if and only if the load is resistive, for example before the E-Cat QX enters the excited state. There the load resistance may be negative, or the QX better modeled as a current source negative in comparison to that flowing into a resistive load. Is the voltage drop across the 1 ohm positive or negative? If the latter, the battery would be recharged at 0.105 amps into 24 volts, or 2.52 watts.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

    some time ago, you wrote that SSM mode was not used in E-Cat QX.
    Now I remember that you wrote somewhere that SSM is used 2/3 of the cycle of the E-Cat QX

    Is this new or improved design ? Is it stable and robust like QX without SSM ? Doesn’t is complicate the power control system in the longer terms ?

    It would be nice if you could say something about this.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Looking at the paper Gullstrom Rossi I understand you measured the wattage across the 1 Ohm resistance to determine the wattage in the circuit, based on the rule of the circuit with two resistances of which one has a known value in Ohm, the other has not. I learned this at the school of electrotecnics: when a circuit is made by a power source and 2 reasistances, to know how much is the energy in the circuit you can measure the voltage across a resistance with well known ohms and get the amps from the ohm’s equation. Multiplying V x A you know the amount of energy in the circuit, less the dissipation caused by the resistance.
    Am I correct?

    Dear Andrea,
    There’s an interesting article in Scientific American that talks about the (much simpler) detection of Low Energy Neutrinos. This leads me to the question– do you think that LENR produces Low Energy Neutrinos?

    Title: “Ever-Elusive Neutrinos Spotted Bouncing Off Nuclei for the First Time”.

    Very interesting. When the temperature in a field reaches a temperature equal to the mass of an elementary particle, waves corresponding to that particle in the field are formed. The cross section of an interaction is very small, though.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    You have got my great respect for your achievements.
    I have an practical question.

    Assumption: The whole apparatus E-cat QX consist of: array of E-cat QX, heat exchanger, control system, cooling system, converter AC/DC, cables and the pumps.
    Each of these components consumes energy.
    Assumption: For the user of E-cat QX apparatus, Energy emitted from the other components than heat exchanger, is not usable. Usable Energy is only Thermal Energy from the outlet of the heat exchanger, and the E-Cat QX works at max power = 20 W each cell.
    COP = Usable Thermal Energy Produced, to the Energy Consumed by the whole E-cat QX apparatus.

    Question:
    How many E-cat QX cells in the array is needed to make COP of the whole apparatus bigger than 1?
    I know, it depends on the efficiency of the heat exchanger, but for example, how many E-cat QX cells in the array is needed to make COP of the whole apparatus bigger than 1 in your demonstration set?

    Best regards,
    Jaroslaw Bem

  161. Andrea Rossi

    Jaroslaw Bem:
    The COP is given from the ratio between the energy produced by the E-Cat and the energy consumed by the E-Cat, independently from the energy consumed by the control system.
    The control system consume is made by the heat in which the flowing electricity is dissipated, that obviously cannot be accounted for the COP of the reactor.
    The thermal energy in which the electricity of the control system is converted can be recovered itself, with a COP close to 1, if opportune, because the heated air can be sent in a preheater of the water before it goes to the reactor. It is just standard air/water heat exchange and it can recover practically all the energy dissipated by the control system. This, obviously, does not change the COP of the reactor.
    To reach a COP>1 adding the energy consumed by the control system is enough 1 E-Cat QX.

    New result of anomalous heat production in hydrogen-loaded metals at high temperature

    Ni-H Research Group
    China Institute of Atomic Energy, Beijing, China
    Written by Songsheng Jiang E-mail: jiang@ihep.ac.cn

    Summary:

    The anomalous heat production in the Ni+LiAlH
    4
    fuels has been observed repeatedly. The heat production can be controlled by input power and can last for a long time. The T2 temperature placed on the outer surface of the fuel cell is about 405
    0
    C greater than the T1 temperature, T1 is placed on the outer surface of the reaction chamber and near the heater. An estimate power of excess heat is about 600 W. The ratio of excess heat of 600 W to input power of 780 W is 0.77. Considering
    self-sustaining effect, the input power might be significantly decreased if a chopper supply can be used to keep excess heat production. How to calculate the ratio of total produced heat energy to electrical input energy remains a question in present work. The consumption of nickel container and Ni + LiAl4
    powders is checked to be less than 1 g after experiment. The calculated energy density is 4 orders of magnitude greater than the value of gasoline.
    Therefore, the origin of excess heat cannot be explained by any chemical energy. The isotope abundances of nickel and lithium in the fuels after experiment will be analyzed by mass spectrometry technique. A further experiment will be carried out.

    Dear Andrea,

    From the Rossi-Gullstrom paper, it seems than an ECat QX requires about 0.1V and 0.1A to work.

    I know that a series is not the best in terms of dependability, but a series of, say, N elements, instead of a parallel, cut by N the current and let you lose less in the DC/DC converter: if you use a 24V DC as you stated, you can have maximum efficiency with a series of about 200 elements.
    A series let you use smaller cables, because the current is always 0.1A.
    To compensate the inferior dependability, one can think of more spare “stripes” of Ecats…

    What do you think? Could you tell us the series and/or parallel connecting scheme of the ecats?

    Regards,
    Marco.

    I’ve often thought that in leading-edge science, good experiments provide insights that lead to better theories and good theories provide insights that lead to better experiments. It’s clear that your experimental results have shaped your past and present theoretical work. Is the reverse also true?–

    1) Have your theories shaped your experiments in directions that you might not have otherwise discovered?
    2) And if so, do you think that those new experimental directions yielded new and even more positive outcomes?

    This paper summarizes some of successful experiments by which excess heats were produced in nickel-hydrogen systems. The experiments were carried out at different laboratories by using different experimental devices and techniques in Italy, USA, Russian and China. In the most of the experiments the fuel was mixture of nickel powder and lithium aluminum hydride. Hydrogen is formed after decomposition of lithium aluminum hydride. The COP factors (ratio of sum of excess heat and input power to input power) are 1.2-2.7 normally, however,COP factors were estimated to be about 3.2-3.6 in the E-Cat test in 2014. The temperature in the reactors was about 1100-1400 0C.

    Dear Andrea,
    I have two questions if I can:

    1 – What was the motivations for the choice of a size of 20W that looks quite small ? Was the stability and/or reliability of the reactor a main concern in the decision ?

    2 – Yesterday I had a dinner with a friend that works for a very big industry near Modena, where having a lot of heat (at 1200°C) is the main cost of their huge production. I’ve told him about the QX and its performance. He was obviously skeptical but because he trusts in me started to be very interested. The only trouble he raised was about the timing. When would he receive his big heat generators if he order it tomorrow ? The answer is of top importance. Can you give a conservative estimate ?

    God bless you

  191. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Without any doubt the E-Cat QX is a sensitive approach, even if the situarion is changed, because at that time I thought to make light directly with the E-Cat QX, while eventually we learnt that it is more simple to produce heat and then electricity with the Carnot cycle, for many reasons.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  192. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    The old E-cat gives 10Kw thermal power, based on a reliable single cell reactor.
    The new Quark requires a thousand cores (assuming 10W each) to get the same output power:
    apart from an obvious problem of reliability when assembling so many elements to make them work properly together, i dont see the advantage of the new E-cat compare to the old one ? I hope there will be a data comparison between the two versions during the presentation.

    Michel

  193. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    There is a big difference that makes the old E-Cat obsolete respect the QX. The QX is the result of years of experiments and of the 1 year test with the 1 MW plant, an enormous amount of information that has generated a strong improvement.
    Warm Regards,

  194. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I have learned in my lifetime that what is possible is mostly limited by what I can imagine.

    ## Please at least consider trying to put 50 or 100 units on a single platform in order to demonstrate INDUSTRIAL POTENTIAL, in order that you do not tempt your attendees to diminish your efforts based on your demonstration concepts.

    Your industrial license requires that the MINIMUM QuarkX configuration produce 10kW. This would currently require 500 QuarkX units to be assembled into a single device of some sort. Allow me to envision the use of {5(100 QuarkX units @20 watts)} per 10kW module as the basic design concept for your first Industrial QuarkX device.

    Obviously, 100 of these would produce a 1MW device.

    I present this to you in the hopes that you would understand (that in my opinion) an industrialist would require this construction logic at a minimum to be able to envision putting $5M or $10M or more into a project to manufacture the QuarkX technology.

    I fear that the presentation of a 200-400w device would discourage anything more than the funding of additional research grants, as it would not appear to be industrial at less than 10kW.

    All of the above is a preamble to my request of you today.

    ## Please at least try to put 50 or 100 units on a single platform in order to demonstrate INDUSTRIAL POTENTIAL, do not tempt your attendees to diminish your efforts.

    I apologize in advance, as I understand I have no business providing this council to a man who is obviously quantum leaps ahead of me in science and technology pursuits. I present this from a “strictly business” perspective and that I do indeed have experience in overcoming more than once in my career of software systems and design for nationwide deployment.

    I think it is not improper to mention that a basic building block of 100 QuarkX components into a single device would make an even more ideal concept, and provide for the fundamentals required for both industrial and home use.

    Thus configured, an industrial unit would be a single unit (QuarkX-10kW), and 100 of these would build a 1MW unit. !!

    I have designed functional systems that extend across the entire United States and endured for 5-10 years or more in my past experience, using this type of logic. The extension of my logic appears to require a bare bones QuarkX model rated at 10kW to be presented to any serious investors that might consider funding the “Eve of Industrialization” for the QuarkX.

    Dear Andrea,
    It is good to hear that you are progressing well and are testing clustered E-cat QX.
    Just some questions about that.
    1. You contol this using one contol unit that can master a maximum of 100 QX’s. Is it right to assume that this unit cannot control each QX individually, but all in true parallel meaning you switch them all on and off at the same time?
    2. Are you also able to contol the output power of the clustered unit in some way, (because you said that the output power would be between 200 and 500 Watt)?
    3. Will a clustered E-cat QX still be called a E-cat QX or will you add a number for power or something?
    4. Is this cluster test part of the sigma 5 qualification test?
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard

  225. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Let me rephrase Iars’ question. While current nuclear power plants control the reaction within the enriched uranium by control rod position, among other techniques, it is conceptually possible to replace each uranium fuel rod assembly with an equivalent number of ECAT-QX reactors and to electrically control their thermal output. However, the current nuclear power plant is most likely contaminated with lingering nuclear active by products. SO:

    1. Theoretically – would this harsh environment be so bad as to affect the theoretical ECAT-QX functionality?
    2. This assumes, if the ECAT-QX could so operate, that its equivalent power density could match that of the uranium fuel rod. Would that be a problem, keeping in mind that the enrichment is below 50% — reactor grade, not weapons grade.
    3. Does it make more sense to build numerous, smaller output and physical size units to decentralize the power generation?

    I agree that an integrated energy approach is most likely to be used, but uranium fuel rod assemblies present, in my opinion, an interesting alternative, if possible.

    At this moment I think we are simply not ready for that application.

    Dear Andrea,
    How long does it take you to manually build a working QX assuming you had all materials at hand?
    It sounds like you’ve had to build a few for the demo.
    Good thing that you will robotize the production line when you’re ready to ship orders.
    Brest regards

  235. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Impossible answer.
    Obviously the manufacturing will be robotized.

  236. Alex

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I was happy to know that you and your team found a solution to the problem of the control system overheating.
    Could you specify which systems were modified to improve the reliability of control in such a harsh environment?
    1. cooling system
    2. control system
    3. both
    4. other
    And one thought about the control system. Its reliability and heat resistance can be improved (even dramatically!) by using high-temperature electronics based on wide-bandgap semiconductors (I mean, primarily, silicon carbide) instead of conventional electronics, based on silicon. I’m sure that you know about it very well, but what if the cost of both solutions will be pretty close? Simply put, would you be interested in silicon carbide electronics if its price would be competitive?

    Best wishes!
    Alex

  237. Andrea Rossi

    Alex:
    Both.
    Thank you for your suggestion,
    Warm Regards

    Dear Andrea,
    now when you master to put a lot of QXs in parallell, do you think your E-Cat QX can replace uranium in the nuclear power plants?

  239. Andrea Rossi

  242. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Sounds great. You could have approached the boiling point by reducing the flow rate of the fluid (e.g., water). But the test will be more impressive at larger output thermal powers and the baseline or fixed power consumption of the controller becomes less significant.

    As always, I want to stress the necessity of calibration and calibration checks of calibration. Don’t directly rely on a manufacturer’s calibration but verify it yourself. Also run the calibration routines beyond the power level expected for the demonstration using your resistive dummy loads so you are not operating on the edge of calibration but in its center.

    Sounds like a lot of work and great fun!

  243. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for the suggestions,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  244. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    In other LENR experiments, it seemed that surface/volume ratio was important for the COP. Nickel wires had higher COP than bulk material and powdered nickel even higher.

    Is for this same reason, that you passed from big bulky modules in the order of KW to small modules in the order of W?

    From the specs it would seem so: LT E-Cat 6-50/80 COP with big elements and QX E-Cat 2000 COP with very small elements.

    You also said that the control is easier. This seems reasonable since the bigger the module, the bigger the chance of inhomogeneity and thus hot spots… If the hot spot is far from the surface, there could be problems. But with the tiny size of the QX, an eventual hot-spot is very near to the surface…

    Also the two properties could be correlated: high instability means that you must keep the throttle down to avoid meltdown… Low instability means that you can push higher the throttle, and if the reaction is non linear, at higher “throttle” the COP could be higher…

    Thoughts?

    Regards,
    Marco.

    2. All controlled by a single controller?
    3. Still no phase change?

  252. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    1- we’ll see. Our module at average, not risky operation, has a power of 10 W, now we are working to pile them up in a tiny space.
    2- yes
    3- yes, we’ll increase the flow to maintain the T below 100 Celsius degrees, just to make measurements simpler.
    Direct current, liquid phase
    make the test a simpler case

    Dr. Rossi,

    I have been following your progress since your public demonstration will Dr. Sergio Focardi. Your progress has been amazing to watch.

    You stated earlier: “Today we are making substantial improvements to raise the power of the apparatus that will be presented in the demonstration.”

    1. Is this increase in power due to adding more QX reactors to the demonstration setup or due to a changes to the QX and its control system?
    2. If due to increase in the quantity of reactors, do you have a ballpark figure for what you are shooting for on the output power?

    May God speed you in your endeavor!

  263. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    1- we are putting more modules in parallel
    2- between 200 and 500 W

  265. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    From a multitude of answers you gave here, I have the impression that you are working to simplify the control to make it as cheap as possible, and that no scientific or technological secrets can actually be deduced from the operation of the control.

    A bit like God created the universe: First, it is thought that it all works according to fixed rules that are derived from direct observations, but the more someone begins to investigate, the more he realizes that it is more complex, nested and recursive than what a human brain can understand.
    Although the latter may be due to our way of fragmenting the knowledge, and pass these pieces into education in a serial way. It is rather because of coincidence and analogies that our brain makes it a universe again. If at least the brain continues to work well for long enough, which is a bit of a nasty limitation of a human being which also limits humanity in different ways.

    Suppose that no pay should be counted, just the materials. How much would 100 E-Cat QX cost, along with a controller in the current state of development and without life-span requirements?

    The reason for my question is not to deceive secrets, but because I have seen that both you and some people who make replicas, it is a fact that the experiments look extremely non-tax-paid. This is unlike others who want to impress with expensive looking laboratory arrangements. Is that just practical or is there a philosophy behind?

    Experi-mental regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea:

    Regarding your response to Silvio Caggia, It seems that everyone looks to you to solve all of our environmental issues. Nearly free electricity powering everything. The coal mines will close, the oil and gas rigs will stop and the wells capped. Great, maybe in time we can eliminate our energy dependence on oil but what about our chemical dependence? What about our need for coal in our metals industries? We’ll still need coal. I believe the Ecat Qx to be a great step forward in energy production and it will positively impact our society in ways we can not yet imagine. The Ecat Qx is not, however, a panacea. Even if it were, I think we humans will continue to invent new ills as quickly as we invent cures.
    Good luck and thank you.

    John C Evans

  270. Andrea Rossi

    John C. Evans:
    I agree with you.

    Dear Andrea, I was wondering what, in your own mind, should be result of the coming demonstration of the e-cat QX.
    1. Provide hints to all the labs and individuals trying to replicate your effect
    2. Convince some nay-sayers (uhm…)
    3. Please your existing supporters (uhm…)
    4. Attract potential customers
    5. Attract potential investors
    6. Attract industrial partners (car manufacturers, utility companies, you name it ….)
    7. Revamp the interest of the (still skeptical) scientific community
    8. Make a splash with the general public through the media (CNN, CBS, WSJ…)
    Thanks, all the best

  272. Andrea Rossi

    Piero:
    We want just make a demo of our E-Cat QX.
    Period.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  273. Dear Andrea.
    Perhaps I am not thinking clearly or strategically enough but there is something that is bothering me.

    With regard to the Qx that has an output of 20W. You have stated that one control unit (shall we call it a mother board?) can control 100 Qx. The combined output of this amount is 2000W or 2kW. To produce a 1000kW (1MW) plant you will need 500 mother boards ,presumably stacked in some way so as to make it easy to remove one if a failure of a board occurs.

    This seems to me to be a waste of valuable space when so many boards are to be used. Would it not, therefore, be sensible to also offer to a customer a small range of Qx output,for example 100W, 500W, 1kW, 10 kW so that a much smaller amount of mother boards can be associated with any given total output?

    This idea will only be sensible if one universal mother board could be arranged electrically to accommodate all 4 types of Qx previously mentioned with slight adjustment of a component on the board.

    I accept that for mass production this might require relevant flexibility in the line construction in order to make this range, but there could be advantages to industrial buyers.
    For example, one difficult- to- find fault in one board in a stack of a huge number would be annoying and time consuming to identify and remove/replace. In fact, the repair engineer might be thinking that the fault was in a mother board when it was really in one of the Qx. Less boards; better for the engineer. Just a thought.

    Best wishes. Jean Pierre

    Jean Pierre:
    Thank you for your insight,

  275. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “Flow heating: 1.58 C / 1.8″ x 11 g”

    Just to make sure we understand your nomenclature:

    11 grams of water flowed over 1.8 seconds causing a change in temperature of the water of 1.58C.

    Water flow rate past the reactor = 11 grams / 1.8 sec = 6.1 grams of water per second

    The thermal change rate was 1.58C in 1.8 seconds or 0.88C/sec

    Therefore, the amount of water raised 1C in one second was 6.1 grams of water raising 0.88C in one second or 5.4 grams of water was raised 1C in one second

    A Calorie is defined as raising 1 gram of water at normal pressure 1 C and 1 Calorie = 4.186 Joules

    So raising 5.4 grams of water 1 C in one second required 5.4 Calories or 22.47W

    Is this interpretation correct?

  276. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your insight,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  277. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks very much — makes sense now. (I do wonder why pick a seemingly arbitrary time period like 1.8 seconds)

    Best wishes,

    Frank

  278. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The choice of a period of 1.8 seconds is due to our kind of calculations.
    Warm Regards,
    Andrea

  279. Frank Acland

    Hi Andrea,

    Sorry, it may have been a misinterpretation from the Gullstroem-Rossi paper”

    Flow heating: 1.58 C / 1.8″ x 11 g

    What does (“) represent?

    Thank you!

    Frank

  280. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    It is a formula to calculate the speed of heating: it means that we measured a speed of heating of 1.58 Celsius degree every 1,8 seconds in a mass of 11 grams of water.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Reading that you are meeting an oil refiner makes your product not so game changer…
    Ok, “all sources of energy must integrate”…
    But… Oil?!?
    Regards

  284. Andrea Rossi

    Silvio Caggia:
    Your comment seems to me affected by whateverism.
    If you make a more thoroughly thinking, you cannot miss that:
    1- without oil we could not survive today and we would not survive for many decades from now.
    A logic consequence of 1 is:
    2- better try to make oil with non polluting sources, if and when possible, at least until oil will becomes history ( probably several centuries, unless we take in serious consideration the mental masturbations of the usual coffe-shop scientists and of the energetic trolls ).
    And yes, all the energy sources have to be integrated.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  285. Steve Swatman

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    Thank you for the answer to my last question.

    If I may ask,
    Approximately how quickly (if possible) could a single Qx bring 1 ltr of water to boiling point?

  286. Andrea Rossi

    Steve Swatman:
    The vaporization heat of water is 540 Kcal
    1 kcal= 1.14 W
    Plus you need 1 kcal/Celsius degree to raise the T of water from the initial T up to 99.9 C degrees
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  287. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you explain why the test cited in the recent Gullstroem-Rossi paper ran for only 1.8 seconds? It seems quite short to me.

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  288. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Come on, Frank: 1.8 seconds is a very nonsensical time at all: where did you find it?
    I never said this obvious nonsense. If you found it somewhere, please tell me, it is obviously a typo waiting to be corrected.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    What is your sincere opinion of the so called “Supersymmetry”? How can be taken seriously a simmetry between Bosons and Fermions? It is like find a symmetry between men and elephants!
    Cheers
    Prof

  293. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    In part I agree with you, in part I do not. Supersymmetry is researched for presently by the LHC of the CERN, and it could be a tremendous achievement if the scientists focused on this research would find evidence of a Supersymmetry, because it could resolve the “hierarchy problem” bound to the impossibility to reconcile the expected value of the Higgs field in empty space and the observed value of it, which puts in serious crisis the fundamentals of the Standard Model; the weakly interacting massive particles that could be allowed by the Supersymmetry could explain also the acceleration of the galaxies in the Universe and could give an identity to the “dark matter”.
    Think about this: the guys that not so many centuries ago thought that beyond the Hercules Columns there was another continent, that the Earth was orbiting around the Sun and was a sphere were alternatively burnt alive or confined in a recovery for fools…Supersymmetry could just be an analogy ( mutatis mutandis ).

    Dear Andrea,

    In your interview with Frank Acland(ECW) July 20th, you said you were to meet with an oil refiner day after tomorrow. That would be July 22nd. On JONP on July 22nd, you posted to JPR, Today great internal test.
    Warm Regards, A.R.

    Would it be safe to assume the 2 are related?
    If so, do you think further meetings with the oil refiner will take place?

    In the interview, you also mentioned,

    Dear Andrea,

    The upcoming presentation has many of us encouraged, and again, congratulations to you and your team on this schedule. My wife is also very interested in your progress, and sends her regards to you.

    It appears that my inquiry about the demonstration earlier was over enthusiastic, a common fault of mine, but one that often in my lifetime has spurred me on to exceptional results… I think perhaps a golf ball was sitting on the “tee” in my last inquiry. Oops … (ouch!)

    I have a couple questions though, if you can respond please.

    1) Is Sigma 5 prior to the presentation very likely (10%, 50%, 95%?) ?
    2) Is the presentation to be hosted at
    A) your work facility,
    B) an industrial work area (or “other”), or
    C) a typical hotel seminar venue?

    Luke 12:29-31 may provide you with some peace today if you have a moment.

  301. Dear Andrea Rossi,

    as you pointed out, you need 24V DC (eg from two series-connected 12V car batteries) to keep the reactor of the E-Cat QX in operation, my question is, do you plan for the presentation in October also a demonstration of a Self Sustain Mode, so that the E-Cat QX reactor (or several reactors in series) generates sufficient charging current to maintain the 24V operating voltage of the car batteries?

    Thanks in advance and all the best!

    Dear Andrea,
    It is a relieve for us that you write more openly about your E-cats. The pressure of the NDA must have been heavy on you and I am sure it is also a pleasure for you not being limited in your words anymore.
    Just a few questions if you will allow me:
    1. Is the 1 Ohm resistor essential for the operation of the E-cat QX?
    2. If the E-cat QX reaches the 5 sigma, will you then still consider making low temperature E-cats, or will all future E-cats be based on E-cat QX or further developed E-cats in the ‘hot series’?
    Thank you, kind regards, Gerard

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The resistance of the E-Cat QX is close to zero, because it id an electric conductor, correct? Did you measure its resistance?

  308. Andrea Rossi

    Peter:
    Yes, it is a conductor, same conductivity of the silver, more or less. Yes, we measured its resistance.
    Warm Regards,

  309. Hi Dr. Rossi,

    It sounds like you are saying that a 24 volt battery can drive both the control system and power the Ecat.

    Can you tell us how many watts the control system consumes?

  310. Andrea Rossi

    Mike Phalen:
    No and it is not relevant to the COP of the E-Cat QX. By the way, I can say that such consume mainly is due to the cooling system and the heat can be recovered. We have a strong overheating of the electronic components due to the high temperature of the reactor that by conductivity through the copper cables reaches the circuitry. It has been a struggle against the time: how to exchange heat soon enough and efficiently enough to avoid the burn of some essential component. We burnt a lot of control systems before finding the solution, because the normal thermostatic systems were useless, due to the time lapsed between the set and the real exchange of enough heat to save the components. It seems stupid, but it was not. We tried without success all the traditional systems, but for one reason or another, they were either not efficient or too “dirt” ( like immersing all in dielectric oil). Most of our unreliability issues came from this problem. At the end we found the solution.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  311. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    How many 20W E-Cat QX reactors would you be able to operate from a single control box like the one you used in the recent Gullstroem-Rossi paper?

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    From the picture in the Gullstroem-Rossi paper, and your information that E-Cat QX is fed by plain DC, I should derive that She has a heartbeat.
    Which explains the other picture of you with the stethoscope !
    And from the beating of her heart, you can know how hot or excited she is.
    Maybe 5 sigma corresponds a number of hearbeats ?

    Heartfull regards,

    Dear mr Rossi,

    Regarding the Rossi-Gullstrom paper:

    The total power supply was not mentioned, but some say you used a 24 V battery?

    If this is correct your total input power to the experiment setup would be 24V * 0,1 A = 2,4 Watts.

    Can you confirm the battery voltage?

    Regards
    Lande

  320. Andrea Rossi

    Oystein Lande:
    Our power source can be either 120 or 220 V AC, or we can use 24V DC batteries.
    Obviously your calculation is wrong, because one thing is the voltage at the power source, a totally different thing is the voltage that goes to the E-Cat through the circuitry of the control system.
    In the same Gullstroem-Rossi paper you can read the voltage measured by the 2 voltmeters.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  321. Koen Vandewalle

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    You write that the performance and the installation dimensions depend on the heat exchanger. Does this mean that the E-cat QX is a one-size-fits-all product, for which you make an adapter for the heated medium and temperature range depending on the application?

    To make it conclusive: Imagine that I want to build a cooking pot to bake fries or fondue in 180 ° C vegetable oil. Then I have to leave with a series of 100 E-cat QX that I build in a housing with a surface of 150cm² that is then immersed in the oil in the cooking pot. The operating regime will then be: 5 minutes full of power, to heat the cooking pot with 2 litres of oil, then on average one and a half minutes “on” and half a minute “turned off” during baking. Normally this is regulated with a simple thermostat, and the cooktop manufacturer should not be concerned with the operation and control of the E-cat QX. The E-Cat QX is then integrated in a blackbox that can deliver to a maximum temperature (200°C) and maximum power (2000 Watt) on a set surface (150cm²).

    The same device I can use, with other on / off times, to cook soup and potatoes or rice.

    For the meat and the fish I would suggest a kind of grill. Someone of your team will think about something based on the experiments that work with heat radiation.

    After the meal, I can use the cooker to heat water to wash the dishes.

    I think everybody in the world wants such a device.

    If we live a little bit sober, we can fulfill 90% of our basic household energy requirement with such a heater.

    The blackbox and standalone character of the application must allow to get certification and to put the device quickly and easily in every supermarket.

    Even if the whole world would have cheap energy, that cookie would still be useful. I do not like to throw away devices because someone else thinks I need to buy a new one.

    In the developed world, we can then use the grid for other useful things, and manage this grid intelligently to pay off the current heavy investment in renewable energy.

    Now a few tricky questions, because it tells about the performance of the E-cat QX: Would I have enough of 7.4 watt-hour small power bank (USB 5V output) to cook a meal (4kWh) with my cooking pot? Or should I buy a larger power bank? Or can’t we use a standard 1 Ampere USB plug to produce 2000 Watt with the 100-array E-cat QX ? Anyway, I would like the device with external power and without integrated batteries.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  322. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    The heat exchangers can be different, depending on their employment.
    The COP of the E-Cat does not depend on the efficiency of the heat exchanger. The COP of the system depends on it.
    The E-Cat QX can use as a power source either a regular AC plug or series of batteries able to supply 24 V. In the first case we apply an inverter to get DC. The E-Cat QX works only with DC.

    Dear Mr Rossi,

    You are now analysing the small 20 kW reactors that failed immediately after the beginning of the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat, so that you had to make the test with the 4 big reactors of 250 kW each of power.
    I know the 4 259 kW reactors had been made and charged by you.

    Were the 20 kW reactors made and charged by IH?

    Do you suspect intentional sabotage? incorrect methods of manufacture? plain stupidity?

  326. Andrea Rossi

    Steve Swatman:
    Yes, the 20 kW E-Cats LT had been charged by IH while I was in Doral to prepare the factory. We have to investigate the reactors to understand.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    LENR Forum is full of comments of Jed Rothwell and Dewey Weaver that continue to insult your work.
    We all know, because it has been put in evidence by the papers of the trial of the litigation Rossi Vs Darden, that Jed Rothwell is an Advisor of IH and Dewey Weaver is a consultant of IH and also we read on the papers of the litigation that these two individuals combined cashed from IH hundreds thousand dollars from IH, but they continue to represent themselves as neutral experts of LENR. Note: none of them has an education beyond the middle schools, none of them has education in Physics, being one of them a translator of English language and the other some sort of a patent consultant, not being anyway a patent attorney or a patent engineer…
    This having been said, I have the following questions to put, if you can answer:
    1) what do you think of the LENR Forum?
    2) why you do not sue them for damages?
    3) why do you not respond or react to their comments?

  336. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Just asking for a clarification, if you don’t mind:

    In the latest Rossi-Gullstrom paper you report under energy input: V=0.1 R=1 Ohm → W=0.01

    You explained to me in our interview that the E-Cat has a resistance, but you did not include it to keep the resistance of the E-Cat confidential, and this meant that the COP was conservative.

    My question: does this mean that the 0.1 V is the voltage across the resistance of the E-Cat and the 1 Ohm resistor combined?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  337. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    What I said is that should the E-Cat have an R the measurements would be conservative.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  338. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    You answered to Michel:
    “Actually, the resistor is at room temperature.”

    This is reasonable since the input power is about 0.01W. But the Ecat QX output power is about 20W.
    Does this means that
    1) the coil is bigger and far away from the Ecat surface?
    2) the fluid circulates in contact with the Ecat, taking away the heat and leaving the coil at almost room temperature (or at most at water temperature)?
    3) the only stimulation is the constant magnetic field?
    4) or that a pulsed current to generate RF pulses is superimposed as I suggested many times, to replicate in small scale a magnetic resonance gantry?
    5) if the answer to 4) is no, could you please try to superimpose some RF train to test my theory? A sinusoidal pulse, convoluted with a sinc pulse, with main frequency 43.5*B MHz is the best, calculating B with the known formula of a solenoid…

    -your settlement with IH and your sole IP ownership
    – your health recovery
    – and your E-Cat QX development with a COP = 2000
    Questions:
    1- will this COP be confirmed for the industrial applications?
    2- if you stacc the E-Cat QXes together what could be the dimensions, for example for a 1 MW plant, including the heat exchanger?
    3- if the diameter of a module is 10 mm, could it be possible to include 10 x 10 modules in a 10 x 10 cm?
    Thank you for your answers,
    Ulrich W.A.Kranz

  341. Andrea Rossi

    Ulrich W.A. Kranz:
    1- It has to be experimented
    2- depends on the kind of the heat exchanging system. The generator itself can stay in less than a cubic meter
    3- no, because you must leave the room necessary to the heat exchange. All the dimensions depend on the kind of the heat exchanging system

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    About the Rossi-Gullstrom paper, input power measurment:

    To be perfect, it would be preferable to serialise an ammeter with the input while measuring the input voltage: a resistor is temperature dependant, so it can lead to a false input power measurement.
    P=U²/R supposes the brown resistor is stable, which is not certain. People could ask you about this during the presentation.

    The picture of an E-Cat QX was recently posted in the Rossi-Gullstrom paper. It appears much larger than the dimensions you presented earlier. i.e. (length 2 cm Diam 0.6 cm Rating 20 W Warm Regards A.R.) Was this a different version of the reactor with different dimensions for purposes of the experiment?

  356. Andrea Rossi

    Drew G.:
    The dimensions you see are the dimensions of the calorimeter. The E-Cat QX is inside and has the dimensions you correctly reported.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  357. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Your latest paper you made with Gullström cause many discussions on ECW.
    My assumption is that the E-cat QX generates a voltage while in operation. This voltage is being used to control the current through the QX. If the QX is off and you want to switch it on the control system needs to supply a voltage, which is about to be reduced to zero when the QX is started.
    Just to end these discussions: Does this describe the control of the QX close enough?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    “Now we are dismounting all the reactors, the bigger ones and the small ones that did not work.” My impression had been that all the reactors were the same size, had been made according to the Lugano design, and that they all had worked? What were the “small ones”?
    And why did you decide to vary your cell design for such an important test?

    Dear Andrea,
    I like the idea to make the demonstration as simple as possible, just heating water. It can then be possible to use a closed water system, an aquarium of eg 40 liters. The heated water is poured out above the water surface so it is possible to put a cup and measure the time it will take to fill the cup, thus eleminating discussions of flow measurements. It is also easy to put an extra thermometer in the cup to determine the output temperature.
    It is also good to use a standard lead car battery as the only power source.
    So when the E-Cat QX heats the water tank more then 15 C and there is still power in the battery everyone should be convinced of a COP >1

    Greetings, Andrea!

    Your willpower appears to be as powerful as the science you produce. Congratulations for your decision to host the presentation for industrialists. Plain and simple calorimetry, with output beyond mankind’s ability at this moment to even dream about! The water will flow through “THE PLANT”. I am frequently guilty of overstatements, so I just want to say that if what I read is really capitalized like I just wrote, it will be one heck of a rodeo at the show! Even if the water flows through “the plant”, I am sure it will be mesmerizing.

    Be sure to have some T-Shirts for sale (or free) at the show. You know what to print on them! Just one more thought, based on the link and reference below, be sure to give “Popular Science” a reason to print another 5 page spread about you after your presentation, they would be sure to appreciate it if you served a cup of tea to any of your guests that would enjoy one. You can use a regular teapot plugged into an outlet if you want, but it just might be a good idea to feature an “E-Cat QX” logo on the teapot too. Brewed with just the right “QX”.

    Light ’em up! Go Rossi Team!

    Warming Up to Cold Fusion

    When the August 2004 issue of Popular Mechanics, the magazine for hobbyists and car enthusiasts, ran a cover story claiming cold fusion could allow terrorists to build homemade hydrogen bombs, Park derided the magazine and the science. “A nuke? The cold fusion guys can’t brew a cup of tea,” the column teased.

    Park’s reference to tea was a throwback to another cold fusion critic with a humorous edge. Douglas Morrison, a Scottish physicist, was for years the lone critic to attend the annual cold fusion conferences. Every year he would ask the group, “Please can I have a cup of tea?” — a sardonic way of pointing out that cold fusion had yet to produce even the simplest heating device capable of boiling water. Morrison died in 2001, still without his cup of tea.

    No, It will be plain and simple calorimetry. We will have a flow of water that will not change phase, well below 100 Celsius degrees, a measurement of the water flowing through the plant and a measurement of the delta T and of the electric energy consumed by the E-Cat QX. Plain and simple.

    Dr Rossi,

    Congratulations on both the settlement and your medical recovery, I am very much looking forward to the presentation on the E-cat QX in October. I selfishly request the 27th October for the presentation. After so many faithful years following your progress, it would be a very nice birthday present!!

    I would say good luck, but you do not need it :)

    Dear Andrea,
    If even the great Prof. Focardi was convinced that the solution of the LENR is the resonance, I am more and more convinced that magnetic resonance can be a topic worth to explore… Hydrogen atoms aligned in a nickel lattice and pushed in sync by a calibrated RF pulse… I wonder what that hydrogen atoms will experience in that condition…
    You don’t even need costly magnetic resonace apparatus. Just measure or calculate or calibrate magnetic field generated by the coil, and add an RF pulse of frequency 43.5 * B MHz over the DC component…

    Regards,
    Marco.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I read the interview you allowed to Mats Lewan on https://animpossibleinvention.com/blog/
    In the photos there is, behind you, a painting with a tiny sailboat in a stormy sea, a very beautiful painting. Who is the painter?
    Cheers
    Fulco

  403. Andrea Rossi

    Fulco:
    The painter is Silvia Magnani, a milanese painter, laureate of the Accademia di Brera of Milan, probably among the best living Italian painters.
    She knows me since when I was 25 years old and I always asked her to paint for me boats in a stormy sea, a subject that I love, I do not know why. Two years ago I asked her to paint for me a sail boat in a stormy sea, trying to survive a tsunami made by waves piled one upon the other, like resonances of virtual particles ( Prof Sergio Focardi told me ” the theoretical solution of the LENR will come from resonances” and I can’t forget that phrase ). She asked me: ” So, you still are a boat in the storm ? All right, I paint you your boat ” and I keep it where I have my desk where I study. It represents a stormy sea, with a tsunami made by many waves one upon the other, with a tiny and small sailboat, barely visible, but floating upon the tsunami, with a Sun in the horizon that begins to shine among the clouds. I love this painting.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  404. Dear Andrea.
    I am pleased to read the results of the trial. This will allow you to move forward unimpeded, which is a wonderful thing.

    Someone raised in the past the notion that you should make sure that the whole of the Doral set up should be protected and remain as a physical testament and example for future generations to gaze upon; like the horizontal Saturn 5 rocket
    is today on show for all to visit and see for themselves the enormity of the achievement Of course, this will involve the consideration of the 1MW plant’s permanent housing. Please give this some thought fairly soon as undesired actions can be disastrous and rued if the matter is delayed.

    It has also been expressed in the past that, in the future, a full length movie should be made of your life and of your long struggle against the resistance to your hard work and aspirations. Should this idea be realised, then you or an actor could be filmed in the actual freight containers used. There is nothing like reality in a film. Again, keeping the plant would seem invaluable in an historical sense.

    Thank you for your very long efforts in attempting to bring a new baby into the world.

    Very best wishes. Jean Pierre

Why not simply give, loan, lease your E-Cat Qx to a company needing heat and let them tell the world how much money they are saving?

    could you please clarify what is the correct spelling of your trademark, because I want to use the correct version in my reporting. On ecat.com and on e-cat.com (with leads to hydrofusion.com) it is a mixture of both but mostly called ECAT, but there are also Version with E-Cat or E-CAT and on your journal here you use e-cat. Thanks in advance!

  449. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I have no doubt the presentation of the Quark-X will be a great success, but what suite do you plan to give?

    – Will you have the ability to produce on a large scale, perhaps are you already in touch with an industrialist for whom production is the job?

    – Don’t you fear that certification will be very delayed for domestic versions, as it is for the old Ecat (2012), which themselves depend on feedback from a possible industrial version of the Quark-X?

    Michel

    First i am happy for you the trial is closed. Now you can focus again on the new reactor.

    My questions :

    – How will you organize the presentation of the Quark-X, do you plan to invite some Scientists or Scientific Media? Despite its obvious interest, the Lugano report still stay unknown for most of them.

    – About the quark-X: did you evaluated the effect of a pure DC constant current versus DC constant voltage ?

    “July 12, 2017 at 10:04 AM
    The Dark Matter is necessary to explain the gravitational pull that makes the universe to expand, but it is not conciliated with the Standard Model, as well as the Rossi effect.”

    Dark Matter is a binding force, it does not make the universe expand! It’s binding stars to rotating galaxies, as the simplest explanation.

    What you are describing is Dark Energy:
    Dark Energy is defined as a force, making the universe expanding.
    Dark energy makes up approximately 68% of the universe and appears to be associated with the vacuum in space. It is distributed evenly throughout the universe, not only in space but also in time – in other words, its effect is not diluted as the universe expands. The even distribution means that dark energy does not have any local gravitational effects, but rather a global effect on the universe as a whole. This leads to a repulsive force, which tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe.
    The rate of expansion and its acceleration can be measured by observations based on the Hubble law.

    Dear Andrea,

    There are some who are a little disappointed in your statement you intend to start by selling heat. All I can say is don’t be disappointed. If all Leonardo sells is a device the produces that lowly product heat, you can power the world.

    Our combustion engines that power our vehicles and machines are but heat engines. The heat is provided by the combustion of fossil fuel that super heats the compressed air that drives the engine. Jet engines and gas turbines are also heat engines that greatly expand compressed air. Keep in mind, air is a gas. Rocket engines are the same principle except the burning oxygen/hydrogen also acts as the expanded gases. E-cat QX may have a place in rockets as well. Just superheated hydrogen as the propellant. No burning necessary.

    All accomplished by the lowly heat.

  477. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say “my Great Team has recovered a full time trouble maker and we are very efficient in our work in these days” does that mean that you recovered (in QuarkX mode) the 10kw E-Cat and have got your 20w up to a 10kw now?

    The E-Cat Qx really the old gal in a new dress?

    I hope so, it would be grand.

    It seems that now you, being back from court, move forward much more quickly.
    “E-cat QX, prototype, new production method, demo in October”, it surely gives us the feeling you are moving full speed ahead and we are all very pleased with this.
    Just a few questions, if you allow me:
    1. Has the way in how demo is to be done changed or still as planned in the past?
    2. What power level will the E-cat QX prototype be?
    3. The ‘new production method’: is that related to a. Fuel, b. The reactor housing, c. Assambley of housing and fuel, d. Producing clusters?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  491. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Sure. Because “E-Cat” is a strong trade mark, already registered in America and Europe and because I consider the QuarkX an evolution of the E-Cat.
    “QuarkX” has been used just as the name of the project: “quark” because ir is very small and fundamental and “X” because it had not a name, so we put a variable.
    Now we decided it is our lead product and it will be the E-Cat, while QX will indicate the type of E-Cat.

    Thank you for your kind words.
    Yes, the E-Cat QX will be presented within the end of October.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  494. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The point I was making on the use of the E-Cat QX technology is that you will have no choice. Assuming you produce industrial modules that supply heat or electricity, there will be integrators that will take your technology and use it in ways and in techniques that you never considered, nor even approved of. That is a consequence of the free market and technology. If you produce units that eventually someone integrates into a commercial marine power unit, that will find its way into military applications. With your success, the genie will be out of the bottle.

  495. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Obviously, it is unavoidable that anybody can use a product for any task it is fit for.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  496. Dear Andrea,

    Firstly, I wish you and your associates all good things following the
    Industrial Heat litigation.

    As I saw mention of coupling E-Cat with turbines recently, I wanted to
    remind you of a fine company in your neighborhood.

    I would ask that you look into a marriage of your heat source with
    their Rankine Cycle Engines.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I believe QuarkX technology could be used in military applications when such applications are “joint use”. Examples might be ship propulsion and environmental heating. Applications where the military adapts a commercial product for their own use. The high power density and long times between refueling have obvious advantages over conventional fuels. Imagine a tank that did not need to be refueled every day…

  499. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    Honestly, I prefer to focus on civilian applications.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Hello Andrea,

    Nice to read that the stress is reduced after making the deal.

    Now maybe a joke about the technique itself;

    The simplest way to produce QuarkX: By cell division while it is in operation? Or can it lay eggs?

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  502. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    He,he,he…
    I will answer when I will be able to discover if it has been born first the egg or the hen.

    Do you think that the so called “dark matter” can interact with the zoo of the elementary particles of the Standard Model?

  506. Andrea Rossi

    It has been made a hypothesys of dark matter particles scattering off quarksby exchanging Higgs bosons. But this is theoretical, not experimental achievement.

  507. Italo R.

    Dr. Rossi, you have written:

    “…The matter of the fact is that our Clients are all waiting for the E-Cat in the QX version….”

    This is why you have focused exclusively on the QX. And the Customers know very well what is better for them!

    But, as the regular (old) E-Cat is already ready for the market, I am afraid that the industrial version of QX could need too much time to be ready.

    What do you think?

    Best regards,
    Italo R.

  508. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    No, we’ll be ready with the industrial application of the E-Cat QX by the next year. We are already building a prototype.
    Warm Regards,

  511. John Dash June 29, 1933 ~ April 13, 2016 (age 82)

    John Dash passed away at about 4:30 in the afternoon on Wednesday, April 13th. He was born on June 29th, 1933. He believed strongly in work. His work in the old days was all about metal, better titanium, better, harder chromium plating, better chainsaw blades, Harley parts, Stanley tools, Navy ships. Then, around 1989, he got interested in LENR or low energy fusion. He was able to use metal techniques on the electrodes in his experiments to get different results such as massive heat, transmutation of elements, and emission of X-rays in enough quantity to expose dental film. He loved electron microscopes and loved to use them on sample plates of strange metal out of his experiments. He also enjoyed getting his experiments down to suitcase size and taking them on travels. Similarly, he would participate in outreach to high school students. He really liked outdoor activities, such as hiking, climbing, and skiing. Indoors, at Portland State University, he liked to swim every day.

    John Dash is survived by his son, William Dash, stepson, Anthony Kyles, stepdaughters, Karen Kyles, Kathy Kyles, and Cynthia Kyles, brother, Lawrence Dash, his sister, Martha Artz, Heather Kennel, daughter in law, Connor Dash, and Ryan Dash, grandsons,and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

    The other day you said that a Carnot cycle engine was needed to produce electricity and this was only possible for an industrial scale unit. Are you aware that domestic scale combined heat and power (CHP) have been produced? I believe they run on natural gas so i think it should be easy to adapt that tech to Quarkx.

  537. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    Thank you for the suggestion. What I knew is that those devices do not make electricity with heat, but maybe I need an update.

    Dear Dottore,
    I hope this mail finds you well.
    Congratulations with the settlement. I can imagine that you feel greatly relieved now you can work on your beloved technology again.
    The more blog posts I read, the more I believe that you at some point should embrace the term “Planet Rossi”. More and more I find the term, although initially it meant negative, very powerful.
    Perhaps one can compare the term to Singapore’s “Red Dot”. A minister from Malaysia once used the term while pointing at a map and tried to be funny. Now it is the strong nickname of Singapore.
    All the best and continuing supporting you in the blogosphere.
    JB
    P.S.
    I hope you can continue with the E-Cat naming, also for the QuarkX.

  539. Andrea Rossi

    John Bull:
    Thank you for your sustain!
    Yes, I am very happy to be able to stay with my E-Cat: yes, the registered trademark “E-Cat” is the name of all our products, independently from the model: we’ll have the E-Cat QuarkX, the E-Cat LT, HT etc, depending on the kind.
    I did not know about the fact that there is around the definition “Planet Rossi”: interesting your parallel with the ” Red Dot “, he, he, he. Well, I will make acquainted my team of the fact that we are the Planet Rossi. In this case we have to decide which star we orbit around: let’s think our Sun is the will of God.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I am glad you reached a settlement in the litigation. (Now you can spend more time in the Tennis Court.) 😉

    Your recent comment to JPR made me curious. Have you reached or exceeded Sigma 5 in your tests of the QuarkX?

    Why else would you be so happy with your QuarkX? (If you can answer.)

    A higher COP? A verification of the Theory of Operation of the QuarkX (Rossi-Cook-Gullstrom et al)?
    A path to Certification based on enhanced stability?

    Or, are you in a good mood because you won a Tennis game with your Wife?

    Very Happy regards,

    A few questions, if you don’t mind:

    1. What needs to be accomplished before you can bring you QuarkX to market?
    2. When do you expect to start production of QuarkX devices for customers?
    3. Are you currently working with outside partners in the development of the QuarkX?
    4. Will there still be a joint statement released from both parties in the litgation regarding general terms of the settlement?

    Thank you if you can answer,

    Best regards,

    Frank Acland

  547. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- more R&D
    2- possibly this year for industrial plants. Probably next year. For non industrial I do not know, because the certification issue does not depend on us, while for the industrial applications we already have the certifications
    3- no
    4- my attorneys told me so

    Thank you for your sustain.
    Obviously I am satisfied: should I not have been satisfied, I would not accept the settlement.
    About the E-Cat QuarkX: when the domestic model will have been certified, it will make heat, not electricity. To make electricity you need a Carnot Cycle, that can be set up only in industrial plants.
    So far.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  557. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,
    I’m very glad the case ended in a satisfied settlement and that you can now get back to what you love most. Wait, no, I’m overjoyed with its implication for the whole world. So much is dependent on this New Fire. Just one issue alone, I may have cited before, is with filthy water causing 4500 children’s deaths daily where little heat or electricity is accessible to purify it.

    Question: Do you have any plans to provide charitable provisions/discounts for such humanitarian needs?
    Praying there are no more delays directed by the Advisory.

    On Bloomberg Businessweek of July 3 2017 has been published a very interesting article: “Re-creating the Sun on Earth”, wherein is written that the ITER in Europe and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s multiple lasers system will reach a self sustained hot fusion by 2025. Both combined are going to ask for about 30 billion dollars more for their R&D.
    What is your opinion?
    Cheers,
    Prof

  560. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Interesting. Thanks for the citation.
    My opinion is that this is an important R&D. Just allow me to say that: these concerns related to the Hot Fusion are in construction since decades and have been funded by billions. Perhaps they who think that our R&D is lasted too much ( without public funding ) can understand better, reading this piece, how difficult are things.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The posted operating point of the QuarkX reactor is about 2700 degC. This above the melting point of almost all metals. How does one heat the QuarkX and sustain that temperature?

    a. Use of tungsten wire for resistive heating? If so, oxidation is of a concern.
    b. Inductive heating? If so, then it requires the interior (fuel) container to be transparent to RF waves.
    c. A special ceramic (or similar) material with the tungsten wires embedded within the material?
    d. Other technique?

    Thank goodness that it was resolved. I went to sleep relieved and very happy last night. And I’m just s bystander!.. I guess for all of you directly involved it must be a great relief that it’s finally dealt with and that now you can get on with the real work regarding the ECat and quarkx etc with out distractions.

    Caro Andrea
    (English in the footer)
    sono molto contento che questa fase sia finalmente terminata. Ho pregato spesso per te. Tu sei una pedina fondamentale che l’umanità non può perdere.
    Ormai siamo rassegnati al tuo riserbo e soffrendo lo accettiamo ma tutti quanti vorremmo sapere di più. Ecco quindi le mie solite domande vagamente vaghe che rivelano senza svelare:

    1 – Consideri questo risultato una vittoria ?

    2 – Hai brindato a Champagne ?

    3 – Sei soddisfatto dell’accordo raggiunto o in qualche modo pensi di aver concesso troppo ?

    4 – Avevi detto che una vittoria avrebbe determinato una più rapida partenza della fase industriale per via del capitale (100M$) in gioco. Per come è finita avremo questa rapida industrializzazione o una meno rapida del previsto ?

    E ora avanti per il prossimo step, cioè la demo. Ti faccio presente che ho già scommesso una cena di pesce con diversi scettici che la demo si farà entro l’anno, quindi …. 😉

    Che Dio ti benedica
    Marco Serra

    ENGLISH:
    I’m very glad this parenthesis is now close. I’ve prayed for you. You are too important.
    We all know you cannot reveal anything about the settlement so I would like to ask some questions that don’t infringe any NDA:

    1 – Do you feel like you have win ?

    2 – Did you have a champagne toast ?

    3 – Are you satisfied with the settlement or do you feel you rolled over a bit ?

    4 – You said that the industrial phases would have been faster in case of your victory due to the 100M$ you are contending to IH. At the conditions of this settlement will the industrialization be faster or slower than you would like it to be ?

    God bless you

    = = = = = = =

    Yes, there is every reason to believe LENR should be able to eliminate China’s atmospheric pollution issues.

    However, in the past there have been repeated problems with China failing to respect intellectual property rights. Your country seems to possess huge quantities of financial resources to invest in the development of truly massive investments in new infrastructure, but has acquired a reputation for cheating when it comes to paying rather small amounts of royalties for use of the intellectual property of others. Can you tell us if this will be different in the case of LENR?

    @Chinese Rossi Fan
    No I don’t think so. According to the granted patent (see top of the JONP pages, read the pdf), it is only a electrical boiler, heating some water. Needs electricity (made mostly from coal in China, makes hot water. Can’t solve the Chinese smog/pollution problem.

  632. Prof

    @KayM:
    Probably you did not read the patent granted to Andrea Rossi from the USPTO (United States Patent Office): it is not a normal water heater, due to its COP.
    Also, probably you have not sufficient knowledge about how electricity is produced by means of the Carnot cycle: in fact, it is produced by means of heat, turning water into steam and making steam turn an alternator to generate electric power.

    Test Unifying field oscillation technology

  644. Eric Ashworth

    I know we all want Andrea to win his case against I.H. but my own feelings are that he not just up against I.H. but a lot of powerful people behind I.H.. Any technology that challenges big industry has major hurdles to jump over. The control that industry has on new technology is unbelievable unless you have come up against it yourself. While Andrea is out of commission with regards ourselves I think it a good time to inform a few people interested in physics the difficulty of introducing certain technologies that are labeled disruptive or before there time. The June 29th post by Cashmemorz regarding Randell Mills I found extremely interesting. Randell Mills puts forward a theory regarding oscillations within the atom. Unifying Field Oscillation technology also acknowledges that the atom contains oscillations and that these oscillations maintain identity by creating a static barrier that surrounds the unit. Something Einstein could not explain, when he said how is it that atoms do not flow together. Well it’s the internal oscillations that create the barrier. Unifying Field Oscillation technology is I believe as close as you can get to a mechanical Atom with unique capabilities especially in the aero industry whereby you can construct a building that can fly. A fire station, hospital etc. The embodied technology, although aroused a lot of interest with regards physicists at universities and research establishments was banned from being demonstrated by the powers that be. Big industries refused to comment and to develop a technology takes money and that’s where you get caught out because without the finance and required expertise the best technologies are dead in the water. To get an idea of the technology go to Unifying Field Oscillation Technology. So when people want to get into physics it’s best to remember that you are only told what certain people want you to know.

  645. Philip

    After reading the last work of Dr Parkhomov, I wonder if it is possible to use the Rossi effect just to produce different isotopes and if this technology, combined with the technology of the Russian nuclear scientists Dr Vitaly Uzikov and Dr Irina Uzikova can help to reduce the radioactive wastes.

    I have been inspired from the work of Andrea Rossi and want to study Physics. Can somebody suggest me the best college to study Physics in the USA?
    Tyson”

    Based on their forward looking attitude regarding open science especially physics, I strongly recommend Fresno State University

    http://www.fresnostate.edu/alumni/about/contact.html

    The following is how I came to the decision for recommending this University

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dCzVUnnL00

    Einstein felt there was something wrong with the underpinnings and implications of “action at a distance”. Schrodinger tried to tie it all together with just classical physics. When his resources prevented his attempt at that method, he tried, as a last resort, to interpret the understanding of physics, at that time, with waves and functions thereof. What he produced, he laughed at. He said so, with the cat in two states at the same time. Instead of getting the joke everyone decided to look at it with serious intent and this is why we are in such a mess of ever higher layers of trying to correct what is wrong with the whole quantum and wave function picture. When the Standard Model is only able to give a very rough construction of atoms and molecules based on calculations of its theory, then another way of looking at reality has to be done. Math, as done using quantum and wave functions, does not seem to have the answer. When the electron’s point structure was not enough to develop the free electron laser for the USA military, Haus and Randell Mills used good old classical physics, which included Maxwellian electro-dynamic, Einsteinian General and Special Relativity and a few others whose expertise was applicable. Mills was able to put together a Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics (GUTCP)that works without extra layers of explanatory methods and further theories such as is necessary to make QFT and the like to barely start explaining the real world. GUTCP explains with answers to what SM cannot, makes numerous predictions that have not only been confirmed, with barely significant error bars, but has allowed development of several devices that, according to SM and QFT, should not work or are very difficult to explain in SM and QFT. Like an anti-gravity device of all things. This device is based on not only full details about gravity but several forms of gravity where SM is struggling with just getting to the first usually felt version, positive gravity. The Microwave Background Radiation experiment shows three peaks that are difficult to explain in SM while GUT-CP not only explains them fully, but shows three more peaks and exactly why they exist and what they mean in terms of what is causing the expansion of the universe. There are many other points on which GUT-CP has firm ground but SM and QFT and other versions, such as String Theory are all struggling to explain wave functions and other unfounded features of quantum mechanics.

    That is how quantum theory developed. It has to be accepted like a religion needs to be believed because someone said so. Then there is the Grand Unified Theory -Classical Physics of Randell Mills. Its power is in its predictions, some of which were used to make practical devices. One is an anti-gravity device, another produces a thousand times more energy than is put in, another predicts the molecular structures with virtually no error, bars for molecules as large as DNA and proteins. Existing competing modelling software is nowhere near as accurate or powerful when based on quantum mechanics of any version.

    What if Randell Mills is right and Quantum Physics and the Standard Model,
    that depends on QP is wrong, very wrong. Then those using SM and QP are
    shooting in the dark as far as getting answers of any kind. This means
    that there are no quantum fields, waves, or wave function. The only thing that can be considered
    as quantified or as a discrete piece, is the photon and particles that
    derive from it, such as the electron and neutrino. The theory of Randell
    Mills, Grand Unified Theory Classical Physics has too much going for it
    to be discarded as just another fraud or attempt at correcting the
    Standard Model. It answers all questions that are still open and which are
    extremely difficult to answer in the SM, it predicts many phenomena, several of
    which have been confirmed several years after the GUTCP predicted
    them, it has allowed the development of devices that work but, either
    should not work, or are extremely difficult, if not impossible to explain
    according to the SM or QM. At least 4 devices have reached commercial
    status or are in development by Randell Mills and others working with him
    based on GUTCP. So pick which side you want to be on. For lectures on
    GUTCP given by universities and other important aspects developing from
    Randell Mills’ company, Brilliant Light and Power, see:

    Dear Jonp:
    Now we saw in Sifferkoll’s blog how Cherokee Investment Fund sets up the issues: by corruption.

  655. orsobubu

    The irony is that from these documents it would seem at Cherokee they get inspiration for their “tricks” directly from unfortunate Rossi’s personal history when, back in the 80s, he was supposed to fool governments with his environment-friendly Petroldragon oil refining cycle project, leading to land contamination (today it is well known Rossi himself was scammed instead, and totally acquitted in trials): “they purchase some toxic land for peanuts – thereby relieving previous owners of cleaning-up liabilities, then they borrow money from various tax payer funded entities (or other investors) and then file the projects under chapter 11 – and leaving the toxic land as toxic as ever” … They definitely always try to eclipse the master, not only in LENR field!!!

    FROM TODAY UNTIL JULY 24TH, DAY OF TRIAL END, ANDREA ROSSI WILL NOT COMMENT ON THIS BLOG, THAT REMAINS AT YOUR DISPOSAL AS A FORUM .

  667. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I understand from your posts that you had a custom material prepared to be the containment housing for the QuarkX reactor. The operating temperature of around 2700C are expected. With that temperature range, I assume that tungsten could have been used. Why was it necessary to use a custom developed material?

    a. Because the tungsten would not be transparent to RF “vibrations” needed to control the QuarkX reaction rate?
    b. Because tungsten is susceptible to hydrogen adsorption and thereby causing associated mechanical problems?
    c. Other issues?

    I hope that you will prevail in your efforts during the next few weeks, and I will pray for a positive outcome. An account in 1 Kings chapter 18 verses 18-40 describes Elijah vs 450 Baal profits, with divine intervention on behalf of His prophet Elijah where an unusual form of fire is invoked near the end of the account. Perhaps if you ask the Almighty for a little help lighting the new fire he might assist. Regardless, the account is very interesting and only 22 verses long. I hope it inspires you. The sun will rise.

    Warm regards,

    Tom

    After the last exciting, but few, revelations on the E-Cat X, discussions on blogs seem to be geared mainly to the imagination of medium or high power stations, or even power stations “spread” on the street lamps; but I think the real innovation is the separation from the grid: antone can have electricity, light and heat independently on site.

    What ever happens these next weeks, the story of the e-cat is epic. I think in future years once the technology is better understood we will look back on these events with far better clarity and hindsight. Maybe then we will understand well the events of these days and what the time mportant knowledge of the circumstances as well as the technology revealed in this time informs a better future.

    All the best for success for you especially in these coming weeks in this important landmark event. And my greatest hopes for everyone are for a good honest resolution and at last high respect and greater understanding.

    Bernie,

    A quick search of the internet suggests that a 4 engine large commercial jet will require about 20 – 50 MW per engine. So if we assume an “combustion” size of 1m in length and 2m in diameter, or 3.14 cubic meters and a power density of 20MW/cubic meter, it might be possible. Peak exhaust temperature is around 2000C so if the eCat can produce 2300C, it might be possible. But a lot of good engineering would be required.

    Great to hear that your efforts on assembly theory and design are coming together with the new breakthrough that you mentioned today. Very nice indeed!

    Perhaps do you think that a 1MW plant with heat transfer technology included
    A) Would fit into a 1 cubic meter?

    What you did not say is they do produce radioactive fuel rods, that remain radioactive tor 10,000 years. About 2,000 tons a year ate added to the 72,000 tons we already have.
    After 70 years we have no plan where to store them for 10,000 years.

    I am very interested in your beginning in the LENR research.
    Can you please answer to the following questions?
    1- when you worked with Prof Sergio Focardi, did your R&D start with only Ni+H?
    2- were you able to obtain the effect without any catalyst?
    3- do you think it is possible to reach a COP 6 with only Ni and H?
    4- Can you explain why Prof Sergio Focardi measured neutrons activity with some of his experiments?
    Many thanks from a strong sustainer of your work,
    Michael

  747. Andrea Rossi

    Michael Loundry:
    1- no
    2- no
    3- no
    4- we had traces of such activity, but within the limits of the margins of error of the instrumentation, therefore not convincing: the count of neutrons has always been higher than the background, it never has been less, but always within the margin of error of the instrumentation. Therefore, we decided that it was not this the path to go through to formulate a theory of the effect.

    Isotopic and Elemental Composition of Substance in Nickel-Hydrogen Heat Generators

    CONCLUSIONS
    The analysis of the isotopic and elemental composition of the substance in four
    nickel-hydrogen reactors of various designs with the development of excess energy
    from 100 to 790 MJ was done. Not only the changes in fuel, but also in materials
    adjacent to the core have been investigated. In addition, the composition of the
    substance accumulating in the cavity of the reactor near the core has been studied.
    There were no significant changes in the isotopic composition of nickel and lithium,
    except for the analysis of the fuel of the AP2 reactor at Uppsala University (Sweden).
    Significant increase in the concentration of impurities in a number of nuclides has
    been observed not only in fuel, but also in structural elements adjacent to the active
    zones of the reactors. In addition to tungsten and rhenium, the appearance of which
    can be explained by migration from the helix of the heater, the content of boron
    increases greatly in them, as well as nuclides with atomic masses of 43-53, 64-83,
    107-130, 198-208.
    In substance accumulated in the cavity of the reactor near the core, in addition to
    tungsten, a lot of iron, sodium, potassium, nickel, silicon, calcium, scandium and a
    number of other elements accumulated.

    Dear Andrea,

    I am very disappointed.

    I did’t know that Lenr forum was a bait by IH and about two years ago i made an account on it.

    Then i gave for free some of my ideas that i wrote also here, like the test of a reactor in a magnetic resonance gantry or in a strong magnetic field.

    This is not so bad, because i wrote moreless the same here, that is a public journal, so my considerations would have been read by them anyway, but i feel defrauded of my trust.

    There was someone interested in my words… I hope that i didn’t give them some ideas at least to mock up a pseudo scientific theory to drag other money or worse, if my idea work, i could have given them help to make a working device…

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In a previous post you answered “Correct” to a question of an operating temperature of around 2700C.

    1. If this is true, then that means the nickel within the reactor must be in a liquid state since 2700C is between the boiling point of 2913C and the melting point of 1455C. Is this correct?
    2. If 1.) is correct, then the LENR process is not using the metal structure to hold the hydrogen atoms. Is the presence of some other elements, such as lithium, the key to the reaction? Note lithium has a melting point of 357C and a boiling point of 1330C.
    3. Or perhaps, something else is occurring?

    About Smith and Murray you are totally right: they made trivial calculation mistakes in their expertise.

  782. Prof

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I have found in the papers of the litigation the references of the ERV, Dr Fabio Penon, who made the measurements of the 1 year long test, and it is impressive: he got his doctorate in nuclear engineering rated 110/110 cum laude in the university of Bologna (the oldest university of the world, Copernicus was a Prof of it); after the doctorate he has been employed by ENI to work as a nuclear engineer in a nuclear power plant; after his employment with ENI he became an expert in certification of industrial plants, his main engagement being in the field of energy production.
    In all his lifelong career he never had negative notes of any kind.
    IH appreciated all his quarterly reports, paid for them invoices that clearly stated he was making the performance test and refused to pay only the last report, after which IH would have to pay Leonardo, but the fourth and last report was equal to the former three reports…odd, isn’t it?
    Now IH has produced counter reports by Mr Murray (an employee of IH and a shareholder of it) and Mr Smith (an expert of boilers without any background in nuclear physics) wherein are so many basic errors, that should a student of mine bring me something like that during an exam, I surely would not allow him to continue the exam… both of them show to have not scientific background in basic concepts like thermodynamic principles, energy calculation, definition of COP, relativity, complex plant design and so on. More disgusting the fact that to compensate their evident professional limits, they insult Dr Penon repeatedly in a supposedly scientific report, showing they not only lack of scientific background, but also of professional correctness.

  786. Joanne

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Let me inform the readers of the JONP of what is happening in the blog paid by IH ( Lenr Forum): a guy presented himself as an attorney of the USA, expert of litigations like yours with IH. He wrote a lot of stupidities, like you will lose the case because of a lot of issues that still have to be discussed in court. Since no serious attorney would ever discuss publicly about a litigation on course of which he is not part, I asked an attorney my friend if he could check if this guy is really an attorney. My attorney, after one hour, informed me that:
    1- in the USA does not exist any person with that name that has ever participated to a case in a court
    2- this fake attorney has stolen the identity of a person that never appeared in any court (this is why I prefer not to name him)
    3- at the address indicated on Lenr Forum of this “attorney”, there is a post office!
    This having been said, since he cites particulars that only the gang of the ventriloquist of Raleigh can know, it is clear that this clownerie has been organized by IH in their home-blog.
    Certainly IH must be scratching the bottom of their barrel… The comic aspect of this squalid thing is that a puppet of the ventriloquist -obviously on Lenr Forum- has commented that a NEUTRAL (!!!) attorney, at last, has explained to us the truth about the litigation.

    In the past few years, there have been a number of articles posted here about SCO2 (super-critical CO2).

    I just saw this update on Super-Critical Carbon Dioxide turbines. (See link below.)

    http://www.gereports.com/call-ecomagination-ge-building-co2-powered-turbine-generates-10-megawatts-fits-table/

    If this 10 MW-e turbogenerator has approx. 40% efficiency, over 1 million (1.25+ million) 20 W Quarxes (and spares)

    would be needed to test this reactor::heat exchangers::SCO2-system::turbogenerator combination at full power.

    Obviously, a 1 MW-e generator would use “ONLY” 100,000+ Quarx systems for a smaller-scale system test.

    (And also smaller-scale costs.)

    1) Assuming that future results both in the court and in the lab are excellent, will it be possible to manufacture 100,000+

    QuarkX systems for a small-scale (or large-scale) system test in the next 2-3 years?

    2) If you consider this project as being feasible, do you think you will still be be able to find time to play Tennis?

    Super regards,

    Joseph Fine

  791. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    We all hope that the legal proceedings can be ended much before the end of July, hopefully within the two weeks that was originally planned. Even though many issues have been raised by both sides, it still remains that you sent a bill for services delivered, and they didn’t pay. Yet. Even a blind jury can recognize that, and the trial may simply end at that point. Perhaps I am a fool to think that anything can be that simple. You certainly have my best wishes for the positive outcome of the upcoming litigation. Many of us will dearly miss you until you return to your blog to chat with us.

    Please do not comment on my thoughts about the upcoming trial! I only try to offer support to you.

    Howerver, on another note, @ 2700`C operational temperature, based on my brief experience in working with LENR experimentation, it occurs to me that you may be holding a bit of a cloth in front of the candle here.

    Please kind sir, is it possible that you have rated the QuarkX at substantially below the measured output? (Y/N)

    I’m pretty sure that if many of your blog readers might have had this very question cross their mind more than once.

    Kudos to you and your TEAM!

    Warmest Regards,

    Tom

    About your question: I will answer with facts when we will present the apparatus.
    Thank you for your kindness and support,

  793. Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    I see where you have devised new materials at where the Quark can operate somewhere around 2700`C.

    Is this a natural steady state where the Rossi effect is stabilized(thrives) where it neither tends to spontaneously stop nor tries to runaway without constant monitoring and intervention of the controls.

    If so, then the final piece of the puzzle is a long lived material(At least exceeding the life of the fuel charge) to a marketable product.

    Wishing you the best.
    Dan C.

  794. Andrea Rossi

    Dan C.:
    Correct.

    Dear Mr. Rossi!
    In your answers you mentioned that having a rare free time you go play tennis. How would you rate your level basing on NTRP? How long have you been playing: since you were a kid or started recently?

  796. Andrea Rossi

    VGera:

  808. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    About the Arxiv publication, could you clarify the input power ?

    I suppose the 1 Ohm refers to a shunt resistor, the 0.105V beeing the voltage between the terminals of the resistor.
    This voltage would give the input current measurement, so 0.105A.
    If correct, then we need the input voltage to get the input power, for example 24V DC. Could you give the correct value?
    In this example (24V x 0.105A) would give 2.52W input power.

    If the 1 Ohm is the input impedance of the reactor, then ok the input power is 0.105×0.105/1 = 11mW

    Michel

  820. Bene

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Assuming the QuarkX commercial unit would be used irregularly, is there a way to tell how much charge is still left (besides counting hours in operation or input power consumed)?

  821. Andrea Rossi

    Bene:
    No. Theoretically, the sign should be a lowering of the efficiency.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  822. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Assuming the QuarkX commercial unit has a nominal lifetime of one year of continuous operation and an application requires only one month of continuous operation per year, will the lifetime of a single QuarkX unit then be good for 12 years? Are there other lifetime limiting restrictions besides fuel exhaustion?

  823. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Good point. It should last 12 years, as far as I know, but I do not have experience about this issue, I can only make projections on the base of what I can theorize.

    Half of 2017 will soon be over, Sigma 5 is still not achieved and the promised industrial roll out of the Quark X seems to be getting further and further away. This is my pessimistic view.

    My optimistic view is an imminent sigma 5 achievement and a Quark X product rolling out in 2018.

    Which of my two views is the closest to reality?

    Dear Andrea,

    Greetings to you and your team!

    Things are heating up. It has been said that just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. After all, if bumble bees were meant to fly, they would have to have wings, wouldn’t they?
    http://www.snopes.com/science/bumblebees.asp

    A simple question, “In order to fund your manufacturing project with $100 million, could the QuarkX stable enough to endure private viewing during the dates from 06/26/17 through 07/10/17 with a 99.9% of operating in stable format for this entire period?” Naturally, a 24/7 guard would be kept, and it would probably be more comfortable than a shipping container …

    This is a theoretical question, a simple thought experiment like Einstein used to do.

    Could the QuarkX show up? (Y/N)

    Warm Regards,

    Tom

  857. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    On 6-26-17 will start the trial with the Jury and it will last until end of July…during this period I will be totally focused on the trial.
    I still believe that the QuarkX will show up within this year and a test like the one you cite is normal in a case like that.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I discovered that Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, the company that owns Industrial Heat and is owned principally by Tom Darden and John Mazzarino, is liable for the catastrophic environmental disaster happened during the remediation and re-vitalization of a brownfield named “ZENECA SYTE- CAMPUS BAY”, in Richmond, California.
    What happened is that they got financing for enormous amounts of money of the Taxpayer and after getting this big money they remedied nothing, re-vitalized nothing, but built houses upon the poisoned land of the brownfield.
    In that field, upon which they built houses, the Department of Toxic Substances Control has found carcinogenic substances, hidden under the houses. I knew this from a person of a Citizens Committee, made after cases of cancer appeared with anomalous statistics in the area. This person informed me that Cherokee Investment Partners LLC, after the Department of Toxics Substances Control has published a report with the results of the discovery of the risk of cancer for the population, has filed for Chapter 11 (bankruptcy) in the State of Delaware of their “front company”, named Cherokee Simeon Venture I LLC, that they used for the “job”. Obviously the money collected from the Taxpayer disappeared.
    Now: I wonder how Cherokee Investment Partners LLC can still be qualified to receive public funding by means of their their society ” Brownfield Revitalization LLC”.

    can tell you the results I have had with this
    are nothing less than spectacular.

    I have since recommended it to other friends
    and they have had the very same results.

    I use only the “Jarrow” brand, as this is what was

  877. Dr. Rossi, there are 83,000 coal miners in the US and the number is declining.
    There are 143,000 in Solar Energy in the US and the number is increasing.
    There are 80,000 in Wind Power in the US and the number is increasing.

    It is my opinion that E-Cat will produce more energy then the 3 of them combined.
    If the E-Cat can produce more energy then any one of them at less cost ?
    Who is going to spend more money to produce less energy ?

    Dear Andrea,

    It has been a long time since you announced the E-Cat (January 2011), and it has been through a number of models (e.g Low Temperature E-Cat, Hot Cat, Tiger)

    When you say that you are ‘satisfied’ with the COP and temperature stability, does this mean that you have reached a point of E-Cat/QuarkX development that you feel can go to market with, without the need for a new improved version.

    What do you think of the policy of the President of the USA about the use of coal?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Prof

  884. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    I think that coal can be used in an environmentally sustainable way applyng the BACT ( Best Available Control Technologies ), saving hundreds thousands of jobs and exploiting an immense reserve of energy.
    This is a fact. All the rest are assumptions.

    Hello Andrea,

    The QuarkX (now contained inside the heat exchanger for testing) could possibly allow you to calculate approximate dimensions for the planned version of the 1MW plants your customers have on order. Would you choose one of the guestimates below for us as the closest size that you envision please?

    The one megawatt QuarkX with heat exchangers and controls is likely to require:
    A: Less than 1 cubic meter; B: 1-4 cubic meters; or C:4 or more cubic meters.

    Thank you for all that you share with us, even if you can’t help with this inquiry, and congratulations on holding strong in during the litigation. Only a few more weeks remain until the sun shines again.

  921. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With a spectral maximum of 750 nm, the color emitted should appear to be a deep red. Yet this is inconsistent with the blue-white color previously photographed. A spectral maximum of 750 nm would correspond to a equivalent blackbody temperature of almost 4000 degK, which is probably too high for the likely exterior surfaces of the reactor. Yet the reported spectral width (700 nm to 1000 nm) seems too wide to be an emission line. Most curious. I will await your theory of operation when you are free to disclose it.

    Dear Sir,

    To a question releted to the possibility of the solar energy to solve the global warming your reply was:

    “Andrea Rossi

    June 3, 2017 at 10:35 AM

    Deb:
    In the last 20 years the installations of solar and wind apparatuses has been multiplicated by at least 1000 folds. The global warming in the same period is increased.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.”

    I do not find that the answer is a proper one from a “scientific” point of view or maybe because I do not fully get your point.

    Been true the two assertions that you made, they are not correlated directly. On the same period of time the green house emissions has increased too, what would explain the increase of the global warming if the theory of the human activity as the cause of the global warming is accepted, that I assume that is not your case given former comments from your side.

    Therefore, the increase that you mention, that has been done from a very low starting point, has not been enough to reduce the emissions jet.

    I could agree that the solar and wind energy are not the only paths to follow to reduce the pollution, but are important for sure. Living in the more polluted Capital City in the world for the last two consecutive years I do not care much about the global warming on the next 50 year as for my health in the next five, and feel, some times, that the global warming discussion is a way to make the pollution not such a urgent matter as it should be, talking of periods of decades or even a century even if is accepted as real, what make many people been not such concert of the problem.

    This is because I would request you to clarify your point that could be understood as an attack to this kind of energies when other times I have read you that all the energies should by the in future mix, including these.

    Please, keep working, mine and many others health will benefit from such a new technology if finally reach the market.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You were asked a question about the QuarkX visible spectrum and posted. “Yes, we measure the wavelength specter and it is between 700 and 1000 nm.”

    This spectral area is in the near-infrared portion and not in the visible spectrum. Yet I recall pictures showing a bluish-white emission from the QuarkX device in operation.

    Can you please clarify this discrepancy?

    1. The limits you posted, is this the half-max, full width spectral width?
    2. How far does the spectrum spread into the visible?
    3. How far does the spectrum spread into the infrared?

  926. Andrea Rossi

    The area includes visible spectrum, whose max is around 750 nm.

    @ Pekka Janhunen
    An important issue with the hydrogen cycle is its efficiency. The cycle to make ammonia requires gaseous hydrogen. At this moment in time that is made of fossile fuels as an left-over for other products. The vast quantities that are needed for the energy industry can only be made of water and at this moment there is no efficient process to separate water into hydrogen and oxigen, although scientist are fiercely trying to find a better method than hydrolysis.
    Also the amount of wind and solar power required would be vast, much more than the ‘environmentalists’ often often say.
    Using ammonia would lead to vast world-wide transports of this poisonous liquid and I doubt that it would be really a solution, although I admit ammonia is probably better than hydrogen under high pressure.
    I know you know all this and that you would prefer the way Andrea is seeing the future, so let us just hope that Andrea can bring the E-cat and QuarkX on the market soon.

    @Andrea: a very happy birthday. I believe you have finally reached my age. Keep on doing that for many, many healty and prosper years.

    For any difficult but necessary adjustment, any child or country or group of interests can make an excuse for not having to participate.

    However, it is important that we stop wasting and polluting. We are with more and more people on this planet, and we have more and more technical means to produce, exploit and break things. Anyone looking good around can see that everyone else has to change something.

    Due to geographical location or natural resources, some may be favored and, therefore, prefer not to participate. For the time being.

    The system of a worldwide binding agreement, with controllable and non-fraudulent parameters, was a whole achievement. Financial fraudsters can not be controlled with satellites. But a country that uses too many ships filled with oil, coal, LNG…, can be hampered by a small military operation in international waters, or something equivalent. Immediately it is clear where the biggest problem is with the most recent turn.

    Thus, such agreements are both well-controllable and reasonably enforceable if there is a global agreement.

    The reason for all this need not be called “climate change”. “Common sense” has always been good enough for me. Most people need something visible and tangible to understand. That’s why I think climate change is a very good incentive.

    Keeping discussions and doubting the truth have always been a fantastic retardants. For example, in case of litigations, which are a waste of time and energy.

    Sir,
    Don’t you think that the solar energy could resolve the problem of the global warming? Say it clearly.

  948. Andrea Rossi

    Deb:
    In the last 20 years the installations of solar and wind apparatuses has been multiplicated by at least 1000 folds. The global warming in the same period is increased.
    Warm Regards,

  949. Dear Andrea,

    I just wanted to describe an alternative way how fossil fuels could be eliminated, which one could call ammonia economy. It has four parts:

    1) Production of hydrogen from water, using solar electric power or solar heat.

    2) Production of NH3 from hydrogen and atmospheric nitrogen by the Haber-Bosch process, using solar heat. This happens in the same site as the hydrogen production so hydrogen need not be transported and not much stored either.

    3) Transportation of the obtained liquid NH3 to any location where energy is needed. One transports liquid NH3 in the same way as we now transport oil, gasoline, diesel and natural gas, that is, by trucks, railroads, tanker ships and pipelines. Ammonia is poisonous, but it is already now transported in large amounts for the fertilizer industry. It might be possible to further reduce the potential danger of NH3 by some type of gelling agent, perhaps nanocellulose fibre gelling.

    4) Burning of ammonia in internal combustion engines. This can be done by minor modification to the engine; this has been known for at least half a century. Alternatively, burn NH3 in a fuel cell to obtain electricity for an electric car.

    Ammonia is made of water and atmospheric nitrogen, and when combusted, it returns to water and nitrogen. No carbon is involved so the process does not interfere with the biosphere (no CO2 into atmosphere, no need to kill and burn plants). I believe that it would be possible to run the world using this process. Energy would be somewhat more expensive than it is today and there might be occasional ammonia accidents, but it would keep the world running. The required amount of solar electric power and heat would be large, but it could be done in places and times where there is optimal sunshine since ammonia would put the gathered energy is easily storable and transportable form.

    Needless to say, the E-cat would be a more elegant and more cheap solution. But I think it’s good to have some alternatives, even if only at conceptual level.

  953. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding global warming.
    You are right that in the past we already had these temperatures or even higher, that is that mean temperature of today is not the history record.
    But the variations were very slow, with a period of 22000 years given from the tilt of the earth axis and small variation given by natural phenomenon.
    This comic ( https://xkcd.com/1732/ ) shows this very well, along with an exponential acceleration of the warming in the last century, a phenomenon that is not happened before…

    Very warm regards,
    Marco.

  954. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    There are contrasting theories about the fact that changes are exponential. Changes happens along eras whose modifications are not aritmetically increasing, but exponentially increasing and I didn’ see convincing mathematical models. But again, I agree upon the fact that anyway we have to do what we can to increase what we can do, albeit without opportunistic and superficial considerations.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  955. Dear Andrea,
    If the E-cat wouldn’t work, one can replace fossil fuels by NH3 and make it using solar energy in sunny regions. Like the proposed “hydrogen economy”, but with ammonia replacing hydrogen as the energy carrier because ammonia is much easier to store.

    Dear Andrea, you say:”the solar energy is not economically profitable”…”the wind energy is not profitable as well”…
    Many people thinks this way, but the “cost” of a technology is mostly a political choice. Should we ascribe even a minor part of the expenses sustained for the cure of cancer to the fuels that produce pollution, the actual price (the cost) of the oil, coal etc. would change radically.
    This is why we’re also sustaining your work; isn’t it?

  973. Andrea Rossi

    Claud:
    Solar energy can exist thanks to the funding that comes from the bills from the energy produced with traditional sources. Without those funds nobody could sustain the real costs of alternative energies, that are circa three times the costs of traditional energies. About the costs for the cure of cancer, that is a hypothesys that needs a much more profound analysis. Obviously, as I said, I still think that alternative energies must be funded and must be object of R&D.

    You must admit that without the finding of the E-Cat and the underlying science, we were really doomed. As an engineer, I have long suspected that we could make it impossible with our wastefulness and growth-dependent economic structures, with the conventional renewable systems.

    For me, my worldview has changed immediately after I first read about your nickel powder, your hydrogen gas and your resistance.
    All the rest is evolution, development, optimization and commercialization. No pilgrimage is organized to the birthplace of Thomas Newcomen and Etienne Lenoir. However, they are their inventions that transformed the world from an agricultural society into an industrial society. All the others have talked a lot and written all history books between the fights for land.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    So, what do you think of the withdrawal from the Paris pact about the global warming?

  983. Andrea Rossi

    Kevin:
    There is a lot of hypocrisy and superficiality on this issue.
    I am sure of the fact that the more we research in new environmentally friendly and renewable energies, the better, but:
    1- the solar energy is not economically profitable and is funded exclusively and by the taxpayer
    2- the wind energy ( that indirectly is solar ) is not profitable as well as the solar and it too is economically sustainable only if funded by the taxpayer
    3- both of them are profitable only in restricted areas, where sun and wind are particularly strong all the year around, not relevant in the global energy market: when you read that “30% of the energy is made by solar” it is a lie that takes advantage of the fact that laymen do not know the difference between power and energy: the solar represents 30% of the installed power, but for the 90% the solar plants and the wind towers produce no energy, therefore the energy actually produced is barely the 10% of the power installed
    4- all the jobs created by the alternative energies are funded by the taxpayer, otherwise could not be paid for
    5- the phrase ” all the scientific community is sure that the global warming is generated by human activities” is a lie: no serious statistic has been made on this issue and the phrase ” all the more vociferous guys in the scientific community are sure that the global warming is induced by human activities” would be more proper
    6- the Earth has had dramatic climate changes along its eons, totally independent from humans: the Sahara desert was a gigantic forest, as big as the Amazonic area and the oil is the product of the decomposition of enormous amounts of organic residue degenerated underground during the “global warming” of a precedent era: in this case, not only it has not been oil to cause the global warming, but, on the contrary, it has been the global warming that has generated the oil…
    7- nevertheless, I sustain that R&D in the alternative energies must be done, but without hypocrital opportunism and with serious scientific and economic approach and without the distruction of the patrimony of plants and jobs created by the traditional energies.
    When I read that China and India are lecturing the USA about pollution, I take it seriously, but only as an epiphany of hypocrisy and opportunism.

    A.R.

    And what if you can couple an e-cat to produce the required heat?

    It seems a win-win scenario

  996. Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your information.
    I am not able to answer because I do not know the particulars.
    In general, the E-Cat will be idoneous to be coupled with any heat producing system, though.

    Dear readers,

    The 65th Bilderberg Meeting to take place from 1 – 4 June 2017 in Chantilly, Virginia, USA

    Although LENR is not published in official agenda (key topics), there is invited also Gianotti, Fabiola (ITA), Director General, CERN. So maybe some spreading words about LENR will happen here.

    incomplete list of attendees (you know one country’s law forbid such meetings for their state officials, so some participants are in secret mode here):

  1001. Lago

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    What do you think about the Paris climate change accord? Do you think is right to remain or to withdraw?

  1002. Andrea Rossi

    Lago:
    To say “remain” is the an obvious response and it is politically correct too… but the issue is not that simple. The accord has been exploited so far in an unbalanced way, because some Countries have taken advantage of it to increase their competitiveness, by respecting it only formally, others suffered substantial economic sacrifices to actually apply it. I think rhetoric prevailed upon facts, so far. About the theoretical positivity of such agreement, it is obvious, albeit I do not think that climate changes are due to human activities. Climate changes happened also at the same speed when humans didn’t even exist; this having been said, humans can try to do what they can to avoid the situation worsen. More than this, we’d have positive side effects, like less pollution from humans, with obvious advantages for health and beauty of the environment.

  1004. Hi Dr Rossi,

    It’s been absolutely fascinating watching your story unfold. Thank you for your amazing effort!

    Speaking of names for your device. How about the name “ROAR Reactor”?

    ROAR stands for:

    R eaction
    O f
    A ndrea
    R ossi

    Your name is not as obvious but it is there. And it links to a cat.

    Warm Regards,

  1007. Andrea Rossi

    DT:
    I am not aware of anything published on the matter.
    Warm Regards,

  1008. Richard Hill

    Earlier you mentioned that you were not interested in explosive applications of the e-cat or related devices.
    However, surely your technology has military applications. If only for supply of hot water and/or steam to military bases and field hospitals. Many soldiers lose their lives bringing fuel closer to the conflict zone for these uses among others. Previously you mentioned advisers who had NATO connections. One has to assume that there is current defense interest in your work. If so, they must be extremely disappointed about delays. Is there a chance that your work will be taken over by defense interests?

  1009. Andrea Rossi

    Richard Hill:
    The uses you are talking of are civil, not military, even if applied to military concerns and the military can fulfill the tasks of those kind with all the existing technologies to make any kind of energy even in mobile modalities ( think to gensets).
    The hypothesys you make never happened and never will happen because totally groundless. Besides, when they will deem our products mature for them, they will buy the E-Cats, as well as they buy gensets.

  1012. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    i would like to talk about the name of your device.
    At the biginning it was E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) , i thing because of the secret component able to activate the energy production; than you had the intuition of the Quark-X, because “smaller is better” and the quark was the foundmental size to built bigger plant with any output power you want.
    This names were very good to let us intuite of what we are talking about.
    But, when you will be in the market peoples does not matter of this names, they will think only to the MAN who donate the mankind the way to save the world from pollution and (almost) free infinite energy: ANDREA ROSSI.
    So, on my opinion, your device has to be named “Rossi” or, something like “Rossi Cube” or “Rossi Device” or “Rossi Machine”, or maybe, “The Rossi One”
    This, always in my opinion, will identify immediately You, the device, the LENR and Energy.
    With a lot of symphaty, Giuseppe

  1013. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    Thank you for your suggestion, but I prefer to make the product independent from my person. I take very seriously my work, not my person.
    The industrial development of our products will abstract from my person: the small warship in the middle of a stormy ocean will leave room to a fleet of carriers.

    Prof,

    Definition: “Explosives are chemical compounds or mixtures that undergo rapid burning or decomposition with the generation of large amounts of gas and heat, leading to sudden pressure effects.”

    My understanding of the Rossi effect is a process characterized by relatively slow changes in output energy. Anything can be made to explode, e.g., air pumped into a balloon until it pops. But the Rossi effect does not produce gas and the energy it releases is done so in a relatively slow manner. So I would predict this is not an effective process relative to explosives.

    The maximum sigma is sigma 6. Does this mean that with sigma 6 there is tthe 100% of probabilities of success?
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Shannan

  1057. Andrea Rossi

    Shannan:
    No, in physics doesn’t exist anything that has 100% or 0% probabilities of success: any event is associated to a probability number, high or low as it might be. We had recently a paradigmatic example in the experiment denominated “OPERA” in the CERN, wherein in 2011 the team of the experiment discovered with a Sigma6 confirmation that neutrinos could travel at a speed higher than c. Eventually, it turned out that one of the thousands connection cables of the apparatus of the OPERA was loose and this had caused the error: the scientists operated in bona fide, but have been betrayed by an invisible error.

  1061. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Based on the reactor dimensions, it appears a reasonable estimate of the amount of nickel in the reactor is about 0.5 grams, which would contain about 5 x 10**21 nickel atoms.

    Likewise, generating 20W of thermal power for 300 days yields about 518 MJ.

    Assuming the 58Ni + 4H1 -> 62Ni and mass defect, suggests that about 10**20 reactions occur.

    So it looks like the fuel will be about 2% exhausted. This assumes some other necessary component, such as lithium, is not first exhausted.

    Question: is 300 days really the duration when fuel exhaustion occurs?

  1062. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I do not know yet, for lack of experience.

  1063. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I noticed that the size of the E-Cat QuarkX is identical to the small fuse in my electronic multimeter. Is there existing equipment that you designed the QuarkX to “plug-in” to, or is the “fuse” size of the QuarkX just a coincidence?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    The mass and volume of the quark have me confused. I understood you to report the dimensions of a Quark unit was a length of 10mm and a diameter of 5mm. As Dr. Fine computed, this yields a volume of 196.35 cubic millimeters or 0.19635 cc or 0.19635 ml. The density of nickel is 8.9 grams/ml. So the mass of the Quark should be about 1.75 grams but you stated tens of grams. Please clarify.

    Joseph Fine
    May 23, 2017 at 8:40 AM
    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    According to the QuarkX dimensions of D = 5 mm and L = 10 mm, the volume of each unit is approximately 196.35 cubic millimeters. For a rating of 20 W, power density is about 0.102 W/cubic millimeter (Or ~0.1 W/cu. mm).
    There are 10^9 cubic millimeters in a cubic meter, so a volume of 1 cubic meter might (ideally) enclose a system with a rating of about 10^8 Watts or 100 MW.
    Obviously, other components (Heat transfer, structural, instrumentation/control) must be incorporated into a system of 1000 modules or any other large scale system of systems.
    At this time, can you mention/estimate the volume of, for example, a complete 10 kW or 20 kW system?
    If better is the enemy of the good, you may have reached the best.
    Congratulations to you and your team for your/their achievements.
    Per aspera ad astra.

    As the QuarkX has changed over the last year, can you tell us the current approximate size and power of the QuarkX that is undergoing the Sigma 5 test?
    Is it the one you will be demonstrating this year?

    When Andrea said: “…. The weight is several tens of grams …..”

    I wonder if, because of language difficulties, he had meant to say: “….. several tenths of a gram” ?

    Rodney Nicholson.

    Rodney Nicholson:
    No, I meant what I wrote and I referred to the weight of the QuarkX, not of the charge.

  1079. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The mass and volume of the quark have me confused. I understood you to report the dimensions of a Quark unit was a length of 10mm and a diameter of 5mm. As Dr. Fine computed, this yields a volume of 196.35 cubic millimeters or 0.19635 cc or 0.19635 ml. The density of nickel is 8.9 grams/ml. So the mass of the Quark should be about 1.75 grams but you stated tens of grams. Please clarify.

  1080. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The weight I indicated is the weight of the QuarkX, as per request of the Reader.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1081. Ingemar

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Are there data available about the electricity made directly by the QuarkX?

    The weight is several tens of grams and is operating one year since the start. During this period has worked at least 300 days 24/7.

  1084. Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Of course, there will be no measureable mass difference as long as the casing remains intact. What I meant with my first question is that one might want to compare the reactor’s output with the amount of energy that could be released by the most gainful exothermic chemical reactions, related to the mass of the reactants. For example, the reaction of a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen will release about 4.4 Wh per gram. If the mass of the reactor were ten grams, it would have to produce more than 44 Wh to exceed this ‘chemical limit’.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

  1089. Andreas Moraitis

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I am glad to hear that you have recovered well from your surgery.

    Here are two questions regarding the QuarkX:

    1 – What is its approximate mass (important to know if one wants to exclude chemical reactions)?
    2 – In the presentation, would it be possible to use a battery or an ultracapacitor whose maximum energy content is lower than the expected output of the reactor? By recharging and discharging it once after the test (more convenient with the capacitor) you could make the experiment even more ‘watertight’.

    Best regards,
    Andreas Moraitis

  1090. Andrea Rossi

    Andreas Moraitis:
    1- the mass does not change during the operation, whatever the duration of the operation
    2- no, because such a device could not feed the control system. To measure the amount of direct current consumed by an apparatus is very easy
    Thank you for your kind words,

  1092. Anonymous

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Based on what you wrote, the QuarkX has a volume of about 0.1 cubic cm: since i liter contains 1000 cubic cm, the density of power of a QuarkX is:
    1000/0.1 = 10000 QuarkX per liter
    Each QuarkX is rated 20 W, therefore we have 20 x 10000 = 200 kW/liter !!!
    Am I correct?

    First Breakthrough for Future Air-Breathing
    Magneto-Plasma Propulsion Systems

    Abstract. A new breakthrough in jet propulsion technology since the invention of the jet engine is
    achieved. The first critical tests for future air-breathing magneto-plasma propulsion systems have
    been successfully completed. In this regard, it is also the first time that a pinching dense plasma focus
    discharge could be ignited at one atmosphere and driven in pulse mode using very fast, nanosecond
    electrostatic excitations to induce self-organized plasma channels for ignition of the propulsive main
    discharge. Depending on the capacitor voltage (200-600 V) the energy input at one atmosphere varies
    from 52-320 J/pulse corresponding to impulse bits from 1.2-8.0 mNs. Such a new pulsed plasma
    propulsion system driven with one thousand pulses per second would already have thrust-to-area
    ratios (50-150 kN/m²) of modern jet engines. An array of thrusters could enable future aircrafts and
    airships to start from ground and reach altitudes up to 50km and beyond. The needed high power
    could be provided by future compact plasma fusion reactors already in development by aerospace
    companies. The magneto-plasma compressor itself was originally developed by Russian scientists as
    plasma fusion device and was later miniaturized for supersonic flow control applications. So the first
    breakthrough is based on a spin-off plasma fusion technology.

    Dear Andrea,

    i have an idea to test my theory on RF pulses. You could rent or pay for use a Magnetic Resonance apparatus, not necessarily a medic one. There are also little high field MR for spectroscopy of chemicals, with a small gantry. There you could insert a QuarkX “pellet” and see if the scan triggers some LENR reaction… In those apparatus the field and the RF pulses are accurately calibrated to give the maximum energy to the atomic species of interest…

  1099. Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    I am using the term “cradle to cradle” loosely – it is a design philosophy that plans a product from its creation through to its recycling or re-use. Ideally, the materials gained from recycling the product would be used in the manufacture of the next generation of products.
    So, you design your products with the recycling and re-use of the materials in mind.
    I find the logic game of our interactions rather enjoyable – what I have learned thus far is that spent units will be returned to the factory. If you bother collecting them, it would seem that you have the intent on recycling of some kind. Two alternatives: you can use the materials to make new units, or you can refuel and reuse the units. The units will not be dismantled for the production of new units. But the spent units will not simply be refuelled in the same state they are returned from the users.
    So, it looks like the units will be dismantled , but not for the production of new units (yes or no?). The old quarkx units will be refuelled for reuse (yes or no?).
    All the best.
    Ron

  1100. Andrea Rossi

    Ron Stringer:
    I understand. We will just substitute the QuarkXes in the locations of the Customers and the retrieved units will be returned to our factories to be recharged and recycled. In this sense, we can define this a “cradle to cradle” cycle.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    I found that a typical Boeing 747-400 engine requires 63300 ft.lbf/s per engine to fly, and that 1 megawatt (MW) of power equals 737,562 foot pounds per second (ft lbf/s) in power. So a typical Boeing 747-400 would need about 4 megawatt (MW) of power onboard to fly … or about 250,000 ft.lbf/s.

    The Boeing 747-400 (aka Airbus A330) uses the CF6-80E1 jet engine which produces 68,000 to 72,000 lbf to power the Airbus A330 (with 4 engines).

    http://www.gravity.co/#tech
    Richard Browning has invented, built, flown and filed a patent for the suit, which he calls “Daedalus”, paving the way for an entirely new aviation category.

    Warmest Regards,

    Tom

    1 MW = 737562 ft.lbf/s (foot pound per sec.)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Electric_CF6
    The General Electric CF6 is a family of high-bypass turbofan engines produced by GE Aviation. …. The CF6-80A, which has a thrust rating of 48,000 to 50,000 lb (214 to 222 kN), powered two twinjets, the Boeing 767 and Airbus A310.

    https://www.quora.com/How-many-horsepower-is-a-Boeing-747-Jet
    The Boeing 747–400 needs a total of 63,300 lbf * of thrust to cruise at 567 mph or 49,896 feet/min. The work done in one minute is a force of 63,300 lbf over 49,896 feet in one minute or 3,158,416,800 lbf-ft per minute.

    http://www.traditionaloven.com/tutorials/power/convert-mega-watt-mw-to-ft-lbf-per-seconds.html
    Amount: 1 megawatt (MW) of power
    Equals: 737,562.15 foot pounds per second (ft lbf/s) in power

  1106. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for your insight.
    I am not expert of aerospace engineering, but I am not convinced of the numbers. As far as I know, a Boeing 747- 400 has 4 engines each of them having a thrust of 41,500 ft lbs/s.
    Making some math, we’d have 4 x 3 x 41,500 x 0.745 = 371.3 MW of power. Surely the conversion 1 lbf/s = 3 HP is variable, because depends on many factors, but the ballpark remains the same.

    Dear Andrea Rossi, the next weeks and months seem to be particularly important. I wish and all your team positive strength and good health over this period. I have the strong impression the time for this technology becoming better know and understood is soon upon us. I’m very hopeful about it.

    The QuarkX seems more and more interesting the more we hear about it and the technology of ECat and your other devices seem more and more intriguing as a consequence too.

    I wonder if I may ask a few questions about the thermal behavior of your devices (I apologize if some of them are a bit ignorant)

    1. I think you mentioned the QuarkX could be turned On quite quickly in a few seconds?
    2. Does the QuarkX reach the operational output temperature quickly too? If so does it a) instantly at temperature at switch on or b) takes a few seconds b) a few minutes c) longer
    3. Is the output temperature from the device directly from the LENR process it self?
    4. Or Does thermal and kinetic effects from sorbtion of Hydrogen have a significant role in the out put temperature of your ECat device?
    5. Or does the output heat of the device have some other origin.
    6. I think you mentioned the device thermal behavior is quite complex and is a matter of integration. May I ask Is this integration over time? Space (surface or volume) Both or something more complex?

    I wish you and your team the best over this important period. It must be amazing and fascinating seeing the technology develop and evolve.

  1108. Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    1. yes
    2. few minutes
    3. yes
    4. no
    5. no
    6. more complex
    Thank you for your kind wishes,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1109. Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Thank you for your reply. So, each Quarkx is physically connected to its control system, BUT, you don’t need to disconnect to recycle. That is interesting. Could we have a little clarification, please?
    I assume a “unit” to consist of a set of multiple quarkx devices, connected to some supporting hardware.
    For the user:
    1. spent units will be removed and replaced, with the spent units being returned to the manufacturer for recycling. Yes or No?
    For the manufacturer:
    1. spent units will be dismantled/destroyed and new units manufactured from the materials. Yes or No?
    2. spent units will be refuelled, without removing them from the support hardware. Yes or No?
    3. Some other arrangement. Yes or No?
    I am assuming you have designed with a “cradle to cradle” approach. Yes or No?
    All the best.
    Ron

  1110. Andrea Rossi

    Ron Stringer:
    1A: yes
    1B: no

    Bernie Koppenhofer:
    Sorry, I cannot discuss here issues related to the litigation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1113. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your comments are very interesting.

    1. For a projection of refueling once per year to be commercially meaningful, that implies that the majority of Quark units within a grouping are functioning over that refueling interval. For example, if a unit contains 1,000 Quark individual reactors, yielding 20 kW of thermal power capability, then one would expect that perhaps 90% of them would still be functioning at the end of one year. This suggests the failure rate (not fuel depletion but an actual fault occurring) must be much greater than one year. Do you agree?

    2. You stated that there are no wires connecting to the Quark, no need to unscrew the Quark. This suggests to me an electrical connection, similar to an electrical fuse or a fluorescent light tube. You apparently still need to provide some form of energy to the Quark individual reactor to control it, to activate it and to shut it down. Can you clarify your statement?

  1114. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- No
    2- No
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1115. Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    does the output temperature of a single quark is direct proportional to its dimension, lenght or diameter?
    Regards, Giuseppe

  1116. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    No, the issue is much more complicated. It derives from a system of integrals.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1117. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    The modules are independent. If a module fails there is no reason for others to fail. They are not interacting between them, they just sum up their heat. A shutdown happens in seconds. Every QuarkX can be shutdown independently.
    By the way, nothing exists that can never fail: remember the words of the commander of the Titanic: “This ship is unsinkable”.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1118. Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi,

    If you build and test a system with 100’s or 1000’s of modules, and one or several modules fail, it is presumed that individual units/modules fail safely. That is, all of the other modules will continue to function undamaged. At least that is the goal.

    Have you considered building/testing a multiple module system to see if a module can fail “gracefully”?

    Can you prevent a failing module from damaging the other ones? Or, can you shut down an individual module fast enough?

    How fast does each or all of the modules respond to a shutdown signal? (Minutes? Seconds, Milliseconds? etc.)

    Do all system modules have to be shutdown simultaneously, or can you operate a Quarkx with a few damaged modules?

    Or can the system be made so robust, that the individual modules will almost never fail?

    That might be the best way.

    Multiple regards,

    Joseph Fine

  1119. Andrea Rossi

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    You are right.
    I must be sincere: when I work on the QuarkX I am stunned myself.
    But it is working and spectrometry and calorimetry are conciliable.
    I am not ready to tell you the power density after the application of all the components, also because there are very different possibilities, also depending on the applications.

    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1121. Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Marco has an interesting point – working with a device so small presents difficulties! I am really looking forward to seeing how you have dealt with this. Are the Quarkx units to be strung like beads, screwed into a fixture or mounted on a board, or just piled in a heap in a fancy high-tech bucket?
    Most of your engineering challenges are well beyond me, but this one I might understand!
    So, two questions, if you don’t mind.
    1. Does each Quarkx unit require a physical connection to the control system?
    2. When it comes time to recycle the spent units, will this require undoing that physical connection (cutting wires, desoldering or unscrewing from a fixture)?
    I wish you the best of luck with your court case, and look forward to seeing the presentation of the Quarkx!
    Ron Stringer

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    On your way to sigma 5, does it mean you still have to change the dimensions of the Quark X:
    i) from time to time?
    ii) every time?

    So, referring to the tale of the sculptor in a recent message of Italo R., he wrote: ‘…One day the sculptor went to his laboratory and didn’t find the statue’… because it became too small? 😉 (Just a joke). I wish you all good luck in finding the right dimensions and/or solving all remaining problems.

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel

    Dear Vic,
    For now the technology still wasn’t implemented, but we are always ready to cooperate with interested companies and to provide them necessary documents and information about the method of reducing of liquid radioactive waste. Dear Andrea , we are waiting impatiently the presentation of QuarkX
    Kind regards,
    Vitaly and Irina Uzikov

  1128. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    According to the QuarkX dimensions of D = 5 mm and L = 10 mm, the volume of each unit is approximately 196.35 cubic millimeters. For a rating of 20 W, power density is about 0.102 W/cubic millimeter (Or ~0.1 W/cu. mm).

    There are 10^9 cubic millimeters in a cubic meter, so a volume of 1 cubic meter might (ideally) enclose a system with a rating of about 10^8 Watts or 100 MW.

    Obviously, other components (Heat transfer, structural, instrumentation/control) must be incorporated into a system of 1000 modules or any other large scale system of systems.

    At this time, can you mention/estimate the volume of, for example, a complete 10 kW or 20 kW system?

    If better is the enemy of the good, you may have reached the best.

    Congratulations to you and your team for your/their achievements.

    Per aspera ad astra.

    Joseph Fine

  1129. Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    you shared the current size of the QuarkX. It seems similar to wood pellets. Is there a way to use them as wood pellets? I was thinking of a big coil, used as an oven/stove in which those “pellets” will be put, maybe with some type of conductive sand to avoid air voids, and then the reaction is triggered. Maybe with my idea of strong magnetic fields and calibrated RF pulse, the ignition temperature can be reduced and so single coils around one (or few) quarkX will not be needed anymore…

    Regards,
    Marco.

    A) QuarkX is under a long test which progression is a march toward 5-sigma
    B) QuarkX is under development and at each stage you reach a better sigma but you have to solve problems in order to reach 5-sigma

    Dr Rossi:
    As the QuarkX has changed over the last year, can you tell us the current approximate size and power of the QuarkX that is undergoing the Sigma 5 test?
    Is it the one you will be demonstrating this year?
    I wish you all the best for your endeavors,
    A. Ashfield

  1139. Andrea Rossi

    A.Ashfield:
    Now the dimensions are length 10 mm, diameter 5 mm, the rating is 20 W. It is the one that will be exposed in the demonstration that should happen this year.
    Thank you for your kind words,
    Warm Regards,

    You have not reached yet sigma 5 and this is your usual reply but the question is: do you see the finishing line and how much time it’s need to wait for watching some good result of your work ?
    Warm Regards
    Giorgio

  1145. Andrea Rossi

    Giorgio:
    Let me humbly remind you that “some good result” of our work has already been published. You can go to
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    to find publications, tests, demonstrations and replications.
    If you refer to the QuarkX, as I suppose since you cite the Sigma, I still think it will be presented within the current year.

    Dear AR
    Your answer to Dima Redko leads me to ask after the jet engine research. I believe you have quoted 2700C as a core temperature of the QuarkX – that would surely work well in powering a jet.
    How is that project proceeding?
    With many thanks for your inspiration and perspiration,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you use the oscilloscope to control the behavior of the QuarkX?

  1155. Andrea Rossi

    Fidel Skillman:
    The oscilloscope with the QuarkX is useless, because it works with direct current.

  1157. Dima Redko

    Dear Andrea Rossi!

    In the past you were also interested in coupling E-cat with external combustion engine. Can you please update us about this issue?

  1158. Andrea Rossi

    Dima Redko:
    Probably you refer to the Stirling Engine.
    There is no reason why the E-Cat could not fuel an external combustion engine, since what this kind of engines need is just enough heat to expand a fluid. We did not proceed with this kind of R&D, though, so far.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1159. Abram

    Dr Rossi,

    Could you comment on this:

    Axil Axil: IMHO, LENR is produced with the aid of monopole magnetic field lines.

    https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-05/au-doa051717.php

  1160. Andrea Rossi

    Abram:
    Magnetic monopoles do not exist: if you cut from a magnet the N pole or a S pole of it, the two pieces you obtain still will have N and S pole. Easy to experiment. There are around hypotheses about the existence of magnetic monopoles, but never they have been really observed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1161. Tracy

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which is the maintenance cost per kWh of the energy produced by means of the QuarkX?

  1162. Andrea Rossi

    Tracy:
    I cannot yet give the exact numbers, but I can assure that the maintenance costs are not higher than the maintenance costs of the most common heat generators.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1163. Samuel

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Yo have recently dismissed such “rumors”, but in the highest echelons of the scientific world they are talking of an extremely important replication of the Rossi Effect that has been financed by a giant of the industrial world: are you sure you know nothing about this fact? Are you expecting the publication of a very important replication?
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Hi Dr. Rossi
    I’m writing from Italy

    Buongiorno Dr. Rossi. Volevo porre un quesito. Mettendo da parte la questione della causa legale presso la corte americana, ho letto alcuni commenti in una pagina facebook o un blog che parlavano di problemi di manutenzione legati all’ecat. Ma è realmente così? Lo chiedo perché sono molti anni che seguo gli sviluppi di questo faticoso lavoro a cavallo tra invenzione e ricerca – che trovo tra l’altro interessantissimo e rivoluzionario – quindi vorrei capirci qualcosa di più e se davvero questi commenti sono da prendere in considerazione, poiché Lei e, a quel tempo, il Prof. Focardi non avevate mai posto questo problema. Mi spiacerebbe che rumors ostili mettano in cattiva luce i suoi sforzi.
    Sarebbe possibile avere delucidazioni?
    Grazie.

    Do your E-Cats have maintenance problems?
    Thank you

    Ruclimb:
    Our products will not have any particular maintenance issue, nor our prototypes and products made so far had any particular maintenance issue. The maintenance of our products is not more complicated that the maintenance of a normal heat production system.

  1177. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, a tale:
    Once upon a time there was a perfectionist sculptor that was never satisfied about the statue he was carveting. Day after day he was working on his object searching for a better and beautiful statue. And indeed it was becoming more beatiful and amazing during the months and years of hard work. He was getting old and becoming ill, and his wife was becoming very impatient and tired.
    One day the sculptor went to his laboratory and didn’t find the statue.
    His wife had taken it to show the statue to the world.
    Honors, moneys, prizes!!

    A question: is your wife impatient?

    (Obviously this is a joke, but in this planet there are a lot of people increasingly impatient – please, try to show to the world your QuarkX as soon as possible…).

    Kind regards,
    Italo R.

  1178. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    It is not a matter of patience or impatience, it is matter to be ready or not.

    Francesco M. Galloppa:
    I am glad to have been useful for something related to your life.
    If my sympathy is correct, I suggest you to watch the movie “The Concert” ( “Il Concerto”) of Mihaileanu: it is the story of a Russian Orchestra director.
    I think it is among the best movies of the last 50 years. Strangely, it has not got the attention of the big public, but I assure you: it is a masterpiece.

  1183. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    You know, we too were very sceptical when we found this new order of magnitude of COP and power density, so anytine we make measurements both with Wien and Boltzmann equations after spectrometry and get a certain COP, eventually we make calorimetric measurements and get the same order of magnitude of COP we are very enthusiast, also because now we are arrived at a Sigma rating very high, albeit lower than 5.

    Dear Andrea,

    Our vacation in Florida was indeed one of our best trips ever, especially our experiences with the very friendly manatees and the beautiful butterflies that we were able to visit with. Truly a special part of the earth, Florida is an exquisite delight.

    I would like to comment on Marco’s insightful comment, and encourage you indeed to setup most likely a complete branch of experiments to determine the proximity of his hypothesis to your work. I suspect he is head on to target.

    However, please also remember your morning of a couple days ago, as you watched the sun rise and told us that it made you realize that that will parallel in many ways the birth of the QuarkX. I will be a guiding light of sorts to the future of energy, as no doubt, the automobile industry is beginning to realize.

    I say this because you are gifted with such a creative spirit, that I must caution you not to get immersed in deep research (again) and delay the planned manufacturing of the Quark Technology. It may indeed be perfect for your next product line perhaps, and your history proves that you have no tolerance for less than the ultimate.

    We all hope that you will not delay for another two or three years because you get distracted with an important upgrade to your technology. The SUN needs to rise, Andrea.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart. May I ask you for an honest answer to the following two very important questions:

    Q1: Can you promise us today that you will not delay
    manufacturing because of a new discovery again? (Y/N)

    Q2: Will you let the SUN rise on schedule for the world? (Y/N)

    Thank you!

    Warmest Regards!

    Tom

  1185. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I agree about Florida.
    Thank you for your suggestion related to the comment of Marco.
    I agree on the fact that now we must make the industrialization as soon as possible, we are aiming at it.

    I am so glad to read about you happy with your QuarkX and healed, after the three difficult surgeries you sustained a month ago. I can’t wait to see the presentation of the QuarkX, but… I heard that an extremely important replication has been made of your Effect, just copying your patent and, if confirmed, it should be a dramatically important replication: have you knowledge of it?
    Godspeed,

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding magnetic fields I am very curious. I am a researcher in the medical field and have access to magnetic resonance devices, with fields up to 3 Tesla. I ever wondered if a strong magnetic field can increase the hydrogen loading in nickel lattice or reaction rate, since a strong magnetic field has a big effect on hydrogen atoms.

    Nickel is a ferromagnetic element, so it should further increase the local magnetic field.
    Hydrogen atoms subject to a magnetic field tend to align with it: the stronger, the lesser the casual orientation of the atoms spin. Another property of hydrogen (along with each atom with odd number of protons or neutrons) is the resonance. For hydrogen subject to a magnetic field of B Tesla, it is susceptible to an RF pulse of 43.5*B MHz center frequency. (43.5MGz is called the Gyromagnetic ratio).
    This means that an aligned hydrogen atom, can be excited with a such RF pulse. The more the intensity, the more the energy absorbed. Then the hydrogen atom returns to the quiescent state with a time constant depending on the material in which is immersed. This is exploited in the magnetic resonance devices to detect which material the hydrogen is immersed in.
    But we don’t care of this behaviour, becouse we care only of the fact that an RF pulse can give energy to hydrogen atoms. This can increase the reaction rate into an Ecat: excited atoms are more prone to reaction: we know tha temperature is one of the contro factor. But heat is unordered oscillation of the atoms, while an RF pulse on hydrogen aligned with a magnetic field is an ordered oscillation. If the nickel lattice is regular enough (i am thinking of a solid rod instead of a powder, but also in a powder there should be an effect), an ordered oscillation is better of a chaoitc oscillation. At worst it should have the same effect of heat.
    I don’t know if you have a codified method to calculate the frequency of the RF pulses to give to the Ecat, but here there is the possible theoretic background:
    A DC current in the coil, with nickel mixture in the inside, produce a magnetic field of B Tesla (you can measure it). Then, the best RF pulse to att to the DC component should have 43.5*B MHz as main frequency. The more the intensity, the more the “cadence”, the more energy you give to the hydrogen atoms. It can even happen that a strong enough RF pulse train can start the reactions even with cold reactor. This can be a method to trigger the reaction even at “low” temperature. Obviously the RF pulse intensity should be lowered with the increase of the reactor temperature.

    This can also explain the instabilities that you may have detected during the R&D phase and the increase of the reaction rate with some RF pulses: RF pulses have multiple frequency harmonics and probabily one of them excited hydrogen atoms immersed in the low magnetic field of the coil.

    Here i gave a theory and a possible direction of research…

    Regards,
    Marco

    Dear Andrea,

    We await the end of July with you! I am interested in the device you mentioned to Frank, and I am wondering a couple of things, if you don’t mind:

    A) Have you completed the final build and the actual device that is to be used at the presentation? (not just a testing setup)
    B) Do you hope to have more that one of these devices at the presentation?
    C) Do you hope to present a device with more than one QuarkX running as a single unit?

    You and your team warm our hearts and soon our factories and homes!

    Tom

    1. Will your eCat reactor start up even when at extremely low temperatures, such as a cold soak at the Earth’s poles?
    2. Will your eCat reactor start up in the presence of large constant or with changing magnetic fields?

  1199. Andrea Rossi

    I strongly hope this bad litigation ends as soon as possible to leave you free to work on the E-Cat. This litigation is stealing precious time to your work and you are the sole guy in the world, if any, we can expect from a real application of the LENR. All the competitors of yours have just prepared empty boxes to fill them up with copies of your products as soon as they will hit the market. How many time are you dedicating to your work in percentage, respect the engagements demanded by the litigation?
    God bless you,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I am very glad that you have chosen Sweden for the manufacturing of your products for Europe. In Sweden you have a strong support, as I can see among my friends.
    I remember you wrote here long time ago you wanted to make the Vasaloppett…next year, maybe?
    Godspeed,
    Sven

  1227. Andrea Rossi

    Sven:
    Yes, the manufacturing will be made in the USA and in Sweden.
    I hope to make the Vasaloppet next year!
    Thank you for your kind words.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you already designed and built the testing setup that you plan to use in the presentation of the QuarkX?

    Thank you,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You projected a refueling cost of $0.01 per kW and also stated that refueling would be done once per year.

    Assuming a conventional Carnot cycle electricity production plant of 1GW output capacity and a 40% Carnot efficiency means 2.5GW of thermal power generation. This suggests an annual fuel cost of $25,000. During that year, the plant, running continuously, would product 8,760 GWhr of electricity. Or about $3 per GWhr for fuel cost only. Obviously, other costs would add onto the actual delivered price. This assumes a very high COP so that no significant amount of output electricity is diverted to feed the input power.

  1231. Andrea Rossi

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

    Andrea,

    What percentage of the input power is consumed by the ballast resistor?

    Paul

  1234. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    We consider it irrelevant to be conservative, we put at the denominator of the COP the whole energy consumed by the QuarkX, but obviously some heat is dissipated; I measured a 2% loss.

    Are the specific heat and the density of the oil you are using as a fluid to cool down the QuarkX certan and precisely measured?

  1237. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    Good question, obviously related to the COP measurements.
    We have chosen a specific oil of Shell that has a precise data sheet supplied by the manufacturer.

    Can you tell us what is the COP of the QuarkX?
    I didn’t understand it, yet.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The puppets of the ventriloquist of Raleigh are continuing to talk in the blogs of your past, which makes two considerations pop up:
    First consideration: they use your past because they have not real evidence against you for the litigation, otherwise they would not lose time for archeology (they cite events of 25 years and more ago)
    Second: you have been completely cleared from your taxes issues in Italy and from all the accusations that caused you to go in jail and they know it, but pretend not to know to try to assassinate your character with fraudolent biased journalism
    Third: being the ventriloquist Tom Darden and the pious JT Vaughn so obstentatiously gracious guys, they should read the Gospel where Jesus says “Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”: I invite the Ventriloquist and the Pious to read the comment sent to this blog from Hugh H. Maguire about a week ago, where are reported the links to the criminal customary activity of Cherokee, that is the mother of Industrial Heat: there we can see that also the “charity” organizations of Cherokee are covers for criminal activity. I am sure that more investigation on this specific issue could reserve stunning surprises.
    And to them who want to know the real story about your past, I suggest to go to http://www.ingandrearossi.com

    Can you agree with this Statement:

    Rossi knows his technology works and along the way
    found out that IH are a bunch of unreliable guys
    that wanted to ditch him sooner or later?

    Mr Rossi,
    Don’t you think the classic “hot fusion” will be put in the market before your Ecat, after the interview released by ENEA about the fact that they already obtained the plasma?

    Franklin Poehler:
    We’ll see. ( We will be first by far ).

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Reading all the published papers of the litigation it seems your foe has brought no evidence at all for the reason they did not pay you and, on the contrary, you gave a lot of evidence of the fact that they have to pay you. I bet you will answer “no comment”.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How much you think will cost the QuarkX tech per kW installed?
    1- more than 1000 $
    2- between 1000 and 500 $
    3- between 300 and 500 $
    4- less than 300 $

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Commercial hydrogen production might be a future application for eCat technology. Using a Sulphur – Iodine cycle and 950 degC thermo source (i.e., an eCat reactor), hydrogen can be produced from water with the Sulphur Iodine being reused. So, at first glance, the eCat technology appears feasible. Perhaps an application in future cars, with hydrogen storage within the vehicle or at the filling stations?

  1258. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your suggestion. I am not able to answer, because we did not experiment this particular application, yet.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1259. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “substitution” for refueling an eCat reactor module. Do you envision:

    a. a throw away reactor (like a light bulb) or
    b. is it returned to the eCat factory for refurbishment and refueling (similar to an automotive battery)?
    c. Or does this depend on the size of the eCat reactor unit (20W, 100W, 1kW, 10kW)?

  1260. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    b.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear andrea

    seems like hydrogen can be distracted from water with high temperatures
    see http://www.iflscience.com/technology/scientists-in-germany-switched-on-the-worlds-largest-artificial-sun/

    Are you also looking into this possibility , to use the heat of the quarkx to produce hydrogen?
    or maybe they could use the heat of the quarkx to implement in their system?

    kind regards arjen

  1262. Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    All that mess to produce hydrogen from water? You can do the same with electrolysis ! I did it with a battery and a glass of water ( 2 $ ). Obviously the issue is how much energy is consumed to separate hydrogen from oxygen, but what you are linking to seems all but energy saving. It looks fit to produce funds from the taxpayer more than energy. With all respect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1263. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    How long do you theorize that a QuarkX can operate without the need for refueling?

    When the time for refueling comes, will a QuarkX actually be refueled, or just replaced with a new unit?

    What do you currently project that the cost of a 1MW QuarkX plant will be, once mass production begins?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  1264. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- one year
    2- substitution
    3- premature
