    This company claimed mass production of Stirling engines, although these are ideal for not-here-prefered home use 1kW range.
    For Your industrial use or demo there will need 50 devices in spherical positions:

    Design life 50.000 hours, efficiency 26%:

    Hello Andrea:

    regarding your interest in Stirling Engines, it sounds like you have hit several dead-ends. It is my hope is that you have had luck reaching out to Dean Kamen of Deka Research regarding their Beacon 10. Here are some good links to the Deka.

    Perhaps they only possess intellectual property on a good stirling, and wait for a person who owns intellectual property on an energy source to drink coffee together. Best that we do not have to pay a license to Jesus Christ to give someone forgiveness.

    Ownership is the cement of the current tower of babel. Currently, the biggest stones are at the top, so everything starts to collapse.

    We must serve, not win.

    Having said that, a thermal engine that works optimally with the Ecat QX needs to be designed. Something with needles with heated diamonds pushed into a supercritical CO2 chamber. Varied with ice-cold diamonds.

    As long as there is no Ecat Qx on the market, it does not make sense to develop such a motor.

    Might I suggest the below for a possible 50kW solution. They use the United Stirling 4-275 with heat from from a solar concentrator. I would think heat from an E-Cat would work as well.

    Dear Andrea,
    to produce chips with ARM technology, as Qualcom does with foundry company, need fabs that costs some billion dollars each, so is very easy for them to knows who is doing what and how much.
    I think once the Ecat IP is public and everybody can buy one, thousand of small company around all the world will try to replicate and produce it and you will not have any control of the business.
    On my opinion your business model is the best one.

    TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor) is in reality producing famous Qualcomm chips, which are based on ARM license. For years I promote ARM business model for Dr.Rossi/Leonardo and fast E-Cat saturation of markets.

    There are some funny hypothesis, for example: Some folks thinks, that when media will be informed about E-Cat and demo one year later, that big energy companies will not going bankrupt 3-8 years later, which of course is false hope. If media will informed at November demo, these companies will also go to bankrupt within 3-8 years and if media will informed X years later, these companies again will go bankrupt 3-8 years later.

    THere is only one difference, if media will informed later, damages from unfinished abandoned projects will few hundreds billion USD higher. For example in our country is 70% state owned equivalent of Vattenfall – Czech powerplat company CEZ a.s., these heavily bought every piece of abandoned “assets” from others and CEZ management fanatically want build new blocks of nuclear powerplant (cost 300 billion CZK). As this management is not informed, they have information assymetry against Vattenfall and they continued in buying every another abandoned energy assets. As state owned company – this is heavy pain for ordinary citizens. So I really “love” here approach with as much late delayed media attention about E-Cat. For a few billion more private profit there will hundreds billion more public and private damages (costs).

    Dear Andrea,

    Raoul and Kurt have made interesting suggestions for you to make a business model similar to Qualcomm, which has many patents and makes much of its income licensing them to other manufacturers.

    It would seem advantages in licensing patents would be that the E-Cat technology could be diffused more rapidly across many industries, and you would not be required to build massive manufacturing facilities, if other companies would be responsible for producing products licensed from you.

    Disadvantages might be you spend more time in court dealing with legal issues and challenges which could come.

    However, Qualcomm is not just a licensing company, it also has a manufacturing side, making chips and other electrical components.

    Which track do you think makes most sense in your case, or maybe both could work?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

    Good Day Andrea:

    I hope this finds you well and far a long the path towards the upcoming demonstration.

    With your revived interest in Stirling engines, an idea has floated . . . that you will present two distinct demonstrations of Rossi effect. The first is the basic irrefutable water calorimetric setup proving the essentials of the theory that LENR does have the capacity of a COP far greater than 1. The second would be with the ~50KW Stirling engine; a demonstration acting as a bridge from the theoretical proof of the 1st setup to an extremely practical demonstration of what the Rossi effect can do in an industrial setting.

    It is my hope that your plans reflect this idea . . . I believe you can see how it will effect the conclusions of those observing the demonstration. Strangely, I see it like the Lugano report’s ability to disarm the doubters. The two parts (energy input/output measurement and elemental/isotopic analysis) overwhelmed the possible scenarios of fakery.

    My best to you, your team, and your tennis instructor.

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    In your reply to Rudy you said: “If any Stirling engine manufacturer has a 50 kW engine ready to be bought, this is the very right moment to contact me.”

    Having been following alternative power generation for more than a decade, your appeal reminded me of the FLEXGEN 43, a ready to go Stirling engine that is designed for an electrical power output ranging between 43 kW and 55 kW. Their website says:

    STIRLING BIOPOWER INC.
    PGL, FLAVEX has been authorized product distributor for the FLEXGEN 43 manufactured in Ann Arbor MI. this unique Stirling cycle grid power generator is capable to produce from 43 to 55 KW of prime power at 480Volt, 3 Phase, 60Hz, capable of using a wide variety of standard and non standard gaseous fuels as well as waste heat sources.

    With more than 30 years of research and development in the Stirling Engine field Stirling Biopower Inc. is pioneer in green power generators, for more information please visit:

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Kochum’s Stirling engine is much more than a prototype: it is used to power a Swedish submarine: see
    http://saabgroup.com/sv/media/stories-listings/2015-02/the-secret-to-the-worlds-most-silent-submarine/
    The engine is a closed system that uses heat from liquid oxygen and Diesel oil, so that it can run under water without need of combustion air.
    The manufacturer states that it can use any heat source, so it is a perfect match for the E-Cat QX, I suppose.

    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!

    @Supporter of Focardi’s Legacy:
    I presume you are somewhat stumped as to why LENR’s are refuted by the mainstream establishment. And I guess that you believe that if the LENR process was kept to a simple Nickel/ Hydrogen reaction then this process would have more chance of being accepted as a viable method of replacing conventional methods of generating heat. The sad facts are that any technology that is revolutionary i.e. not an old technology that has been simply tweaked is very, very difficult to introduce to the general public by public broadcasting due to the continual backlash from the established mainstream powers that be. Any technology/process that is labeled destructive or ‘before its time’ can be looked upon as a ‘hot potato’ and for those who investigate or even acknowledge such such a scientific breakthrough risk upsetting their peers and jeopardizing their careers. LENR’s I believe falls into the category of a ‘hot potato’. There are many people who are aware of this problem regarding the introduction of any groundbreaking technology but unfortunately there are more people who are totally unaware due to there none involvement in such matters. Joe Bob if he worked for a government run research establishment would find himself out of work if he went against his peers, proved LENR’s and proceeded to inform the general public

  60. Supporter of Focardi's Legacy

    Dear Andrea,

    (Here is a question I hope you can answer. First, I must setup the scenario with “Joe Bob” representing any ordinary researcher in the field.)

    Joe Bob reads the earliest papers of Focardi’s early work with just nickel and hydrogen in which excess heat was repeatedly produced up to a COP of around 3. This interests him because it was performed repeatedly and accomplished with no LiAlH4 and no extra elements added. So not only was it a more primitive setup than the early E-Cats (capable of infinite COP and huge excess heat due to added elements) but compared to the super advanced Quark utilizing plasma was not much more than a camp fire stove, figuratively speaking.

    He goes on to learn that in those systems, excess heat depended on the quantity and rate of hydrogen absorption and desorption — into and out of the nickel. The more anomalously fast and/or large the absorption or desorption the more vigorous the “excited state” of the fuel would be. He realizes that due to all the money and intellectual property involved, no party successfully replicating more advanced LENR systems utilizing LiAlH4 as a source of atomic hydrogen, reverse spillover catalysts, radio frequency generators, or other enhancements will share enough information for meticulous and serious replicators to produce results every single time. Although there have been and will continue to be occasional huge successes proving the absolute, hard reality of the effect, nothing will be proven to the world. Simply put: until billions of dollars are already in someone’s bank account, the more advanced forms of the technology will not be capable of being *easily* replicated by just any scientist, due to proprietary know how being withheld. Fair enough, Joe Bob figures. Inventors deserve reward for their hard labor.

    However, Joe Bob wonders if any replicator out there would be willing to share details, in a more concise and easily digestible format, about how to get the “cave man style” (compared to any E-Cat ever demonstrated) original Focardi system to produce excess heat. A specific set of details of how to process nickel (even wire or bulk nickel) to absorb and then desorb hydrogen to become “excited” could awaken the entire world to reality of the basic reality of nickel-hydrogen LENR.

    Ridicule, mocking, taunting, veiled threats of various kinds: those that have supported the reality of Focardi’s early work and the reality of the Rossi Effect have been subjected to incredibly cruel treatment over the last year or so. We’ve been shouted down on various sites for daring to claim that nickel-hydrogen reactions were a reality. The relentless demonization of us came from both the naysayers who dismiss all LENR and those that sought to erase Ni-H LENR from history — pushing palladium deuterium reactions as seemingly part of their agenda.

    The information to make basic Ni-H systems (no extra elements from the periodic table, no lithium hydrides, no RFGs, no plasma, no electrical current running through the fuel, no special high surface area powder) produce excess heat could refute these attempts at destroying a dedicated scientist’s hard earned legacy and excite the world about the tremendously evolved version that could change the world.

    Is there anyway you could provide advice about how to get plain hydrogen into plain nickel (even bulk) to produce the heat Focardi saw in his early experiments before he ever met you? Not a word about elements, not a phrase about lithium, not a hint at electromagnetic stimulation, not a sentence about electrical discharges: only the physical prep of bulk nickel and application of ordinary hydrogen from a tank to allow the humble COPs Focardi witnessed.

    Thank you regardless if you can provide any info or not.

    Dear Andrea,

    In regards to MHD generators – brilliantlightpower talk about using either photovoltaic cells or magnetohydrodynamic generators to convert the heat / light from their proposed 500kw generator. If interested I suggest going to brilliantlight power.com, there is a PDF link to a powerpoint presentation under “Society for Cable & Telecoms… Conference” towards the bottom of the home page. It may give you some ideas to explore for your e-cats. Anyway, I wish you all the best Andrea! I know you are extremely busy. Personally I think you try to do too much of the work yourself and would benefit form a team of helpers. I sincerely wish you well.

  65. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Your system architecture choice for large scale systems is an important consideration. For instance, suppose you wanted to power a 1 GW electrical generation unit (such units do exist). Assuming a Carnot efficiency of 40% means a thermal generation capacity of 2.5 GW. Assuming you select 250kW as the output of a “area” collection of reactors, roughly 12,500+ reactors would be needed for a 250kW module. These 10,000+ “area” modules would be running in parallel to produce the 2.5GW of thermal power to generate the 1GW of electrical power.

    Now the interesting part. With a one year reactor lifetime, this means the average number of “area” modules which will require replacement for refueling is about 27 units per day. Since the initial start-up condition will be all fresh reactors, this means you need to be able to replace up to 54 units per day — run 6 months without “area” module change out and then a uniform replacement during a 6 month “maintenance” period — still being capable of maximum electrical plant power generation. This means, ideally, a replacement time of an “area” module of about 30 minutes, performed 24 hours per day. Such “exhausted” modules would then be shipped to your maintenance facility for refueling and clean-up.

    If you grouped the 250kW “area” units into 10 unit collections, thus capable of producing 2.5MW of thermal power as a subsystem, then the number of subsystems would be 1,000+. Such a subsystem could be brought down for refueling maintenance for a period of 5 hours to replace all of the “area” modules. 1,000+ subsystems would give you a 0.1% control by turning on or off a subsystem for adjustment of the overall plant output. 5 hours is likely a reasonable time period to cool down the system, replace the components with refueled components, perform system testing, make any adjustments and restart the subsystem unit.

    Have you ever considered magnetohydrodynamic generators as a way of converting the thermal energy your e-cats produce into electricity. If not it may be worth looking into it.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I just saw that Georgia Tech researchers are experimenting with Ceramic pumps which can pump molten Tin at temperatures greater than 1400 Celsius (1673 Kelvin). Future developments in materials technology may produce parts with greater strength and that should be less brittle, have more wear resistance and, therefore, have longer operational lifetimes.

    Perhaps you may find a use for this type of pump.

    Obviously I know the results, I have been informed about them by the Professors under NDA, but I cannot talk of them before they will publish a report, if ever, since they worked with the funding of a third party that wanted to know if the Rossi Effect exists beyond any doubt.
    For this reason, they reproduced the reactor in the laboratories of the Uppsala University and followed the instructions contained in my patent. They wanted to avoid the complications generated by the infrared temperature measurement and measured the energy produced by simple calorimetry, by means of a heat exchanger and with liquid water.
    I know the measurements have been very conservative, always considering only the lower values of the margin of error of the instrumentation.
    I think I can say all this, because obvious.
    I cannot absolutely add any further information. I will be able to comment the results only after such results will have been made public.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Very informed source told me that a team of professors of the University of Uppsala has replicated successfully in July 2017 the Lugano test of March 2014. Is that true?
    Godspeed,

  82. Andrea Rossi

    Viking:
    I will be able to answer only after I will have read a report about this.
    Warm Regards,

  83. Mick Neren

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Plasma has a temperature of at least 2,000 Celsius. During the demonstration you will make a calorimetric measurement of the energy, therefore the temperature that will be observed will not overcome 100 Celsius, if the water will not change phase. In the paper Gullstroem-Rossi you used a spectrometer to measure the temperature of plasma: will you use spectrometry also during the demonstration? It is important to be sure that the temperature is at least 2,000 Celsius, to be sure that there is plasma in the reactor, because if it is plasma it is obviously a good conductor of current.
    Thank you if you can answer,
    Cheers

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “the modularity allows a substitution per area”. Can you tell us:
    1. The (maximum) number of individual reactors in an “area” or the total thermal output per “area”?
    2. Within an “area”, is each reactor controlled individually by an “area” controller?
    3. Within an “area”, is each reactor monitored for health or performance?
    4. Within a deployed system, is there a theoretical limit to the number of “areas” that could be run in parallel (e.g. 2**16)?
    5. Within a deployed system, is each “area” controller monitored by the deployed system for individual reactor health?
    6. For a deployed system, can your company remotely monitor the deployed system for health and performance?

  88. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- the number of reactors/area
    2- yes
    3- no, is checked the area
    4- no

    Dear Andrea,

    If you have an E-Cat plant consisting of thousands of E-Cat QX reactors, will each reactor need to be replaced every year, and if so, will they all have to replaced at the same time (requiring the shutdown of the plant)?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  91. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    No, the modularity allows a substitution per area, maintaining the full power in operation if the power is redundant in proportion.

  92. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    When I read the discussion about the 1 year usage of fuel, it make me curious. 1 year seems pretty trivial. Are you able to extend that time to 1.5, 2, 3 years or any duration?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Gerard McEk:
    As trivial as it might be, let it be 1 year, so far.
    Warm Regards,

  94. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Can you say anything on why the limitation of one year? For example, in uranium-based fission, there are by-products that “poison” the basic reaction. You, obviously, could add more active components to your reactor during refueling if depletion were the only issue. Is control of the fueled reactor a function of the amount of fuel within the reactor? Please clarify what you can.

  99. Andrea Rossi

    Barry Chaiken:
    As politically uncorrect as it might seem, I agree with him, because most of the other Countries were just cheating on this issue, pretending to change everything to change nothing and getting strong competitivity against the USA, while the United States had serious damages in terms of loss of jobs. Besides: coal can be used with respect for the environment, provided proper BACT are adopted.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A previous post had mentioned 1100 days and you did correct it. My post had estimated 1200 days and did not correct it. 3 years contains about 1100 to 1200 days. That is where the 3 years came from.

    So, for the record, how long have the reactors been running without refueling?

  108. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Sorry, but I did not say that it worked continuously for 3 years. There have been interruptions, the last refueling has been made one year ago.

  109. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are saying that the reactor(s) being tested have been running essentially continuously for over 3 years without refueling? If so, is the published one year refueling time just a Management position, only done to assure end-of-fuel does not occur?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Assuming you have been running the 5-Sigma test for the last 3+ years, and you will be achieving your test result in about 1,200 days of operation…. A 5 sigma test means one (or less) failures in 3,500,000 cycles. There are approximately 103.8 million seconds in 1,200 days. A test cycle should be around 30 seconds.

    1. Does your test essentially consist of turning on a reactor, achieving a stable output, and then turning off the reactor over an approximately 30 second period?
    2. If this essentially captures the repeated test sequence, what length of time, over the operating period, was the output stable?

    Even if this envisioned test methodology is not correct, the achievement of 5 sigma is exceptionally challenging – having the reactor containment environment not fail at eCat reactor temperatures over this test period (~3 years) is amazing.

  126. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    1- no
    2- the “uninterrupted” operation has been subdivided in virtual segments

    Il prof. Sergio Focardi era mio relatore alla tesi, e mi mostrò il suo laboratorio e i risultati dei suoi esperimenti.
    In seguito ci siamo rivisti per una conferenza a Bologna sul vostro lavoro, che ho sempre seguito con grandi speranze.
    Mi raccontò anche qualcosa sui vostri primi esperimenti.
    Qualcuno suggeriva di tenere il primo prototipo da 1MW per esporlo.
    Sarebbe anche bello avere i primi prototipi in assoluto, quelli che avete usato qui.

    Dear Anonymous,

    Will the report, when eventually published, include details on all processes and treatments of the nickel powder to allow for such a high COP? Hit and miss, finicky, challenging, enigmatic: making excess heat with nickel and a source of hydrogen (such as LiAlH4) is currently unrepeatable by the majority of replicators. Although a few highly credible respected scientists like Alexander Parkhomov and Songsheng Jiang have reported tremendous success (with rumors of positive results from other parties such as Nissan), there has yet to be an instructional guide published for serious parties interested in reproducing the effect to follow. Until such step by step details are provided, the series of successful replications that will be required for universal acceptance of the reality of the technology won’t happen.

    With enough time, effort, and determination, I’m confident any competent researcher can produce undeniable excess heat; unfortunately, individuals with the work ethic of Andrea Rossi are rarities. Most people want reasonably quick results and are unwilling to perform long series of tests. But to change the mindset of official science about the Rossi Effect, such a “cheat sheet” with the details of how to process the nickel powder, how to provide electromagnetic stimulation, and how to trigger the anomalous heat events will be needed.

    Sincerely,
    A Long Time Reader Of The JONP

    According with a person with sure knowledge of the facts, the Swedish team of Professors has replicated the experiment of Lugano. They built a reactor copying your patent and made the measurements with regular calorimetry with water in liquid state, instead of with the Boltzmann equation used in Lugano.

The market offers any kind of back up generators of electricity and heat and the difference of efficiency is a very minor issue in those situations: I think nobody gives a damn if during or in the aftermath of a hurricane or an earthquake the electricity or the heat generated by a mobile apparatus costs less.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will, during the demo of November, be also given any information about the progress as for what concerns the development of the theory behind the Rossi effect?
    Godspeed

  180. Andrea Rossi

    Prof:
    I think yes, also because in these days I am working with Carl-Oscar Gullstrom very thoroughly on it. He will attend the November presentation and after the test we will also talk of the theoretical developments, after our last paper published on Arxiv Physics.

    Hello Dr Rossi

    Dont know if you have seen this from Peter Gluck

    Kind request for an opened question

    My dear friends,

    I am old and very ill and I want to take some conclusions of my life.

    The most important question I know is if cold fusion has become a technology or not.

    Years ago in a phone conversation with Arthur C. Clark, who called me from Sri Lanka I have predicted that the cold fusion will be a useful source of energy that is a technology.
    Today I have no idea if I was right or not.

    It depends first on Andrea Rossi. If Andrea has indeed a working technology then I was right. If not then we have to wait. I don’t know who has the absolute correct answer. Please convey this to Andrea and I am waiting he should tell that to our mentor and friend, A.C. Clark, genius of the first rank, I told the truth or not. This is the most important question for me. Andrea and others can inform people and give any details and publish them in my blog Ego-out which is now administered by my blog associate Georgina and who takes care of my intellectual inheritance.

    I can see only with my left eye and I cannot read and cannot write. I am very sorry but my career has ended. Please help me. My daughter will inform me about the situation.

    Thank you,
    Peter

  182. Andrea Rossi

    Sam:
    Thank you for this message from Peter Gluck.
    I am very sorry for what happened to his eyes and I strongly hope that he can have the possibility to improve his view. I strongly hope.
    As for what concerns the status of my technology, I gave and am giving all the possible information about our working technology here and in our website
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    Peter has direct access to me and he does not need to send for me by anybody: he can contact me personally when he wants: I will be delighted to give him first hand news. I sent to him many emails in the last four months, also for personal communications.
    Please forward him my best wishes and my strong appreciation for his intellectual honesty.

    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    I think the new development with the E-cat producing electricity is very interesting.
    I understand it is easier to produce heat than electricity with the E-cat, but the potential with producing electricity is of cource mind blowing.
    A) Have you reached a point where it is meaningful to produce electricity?
    I remember you said you could produce small amounts of electricity directly from the E-cat before.
    B) Is producing electricity directly something you still try to achive?
    C) Is your new partner most interested in producing heat or electricity or both?

    Kind regards,

    Lars

  184. Andrea Rossi

    Lars:
    A- premature
    B- yes
    C- both

    Dear Andrea, Dear all,

    the ECat QX can emit energy in three forms, as far as i understand: heat, electricity and light.

    Obviously electricity does not need conversion, apart (A/D)C/(A/D)C conversion.

    Heat requires the Carnot cycle.

    Light? Photovoltaic panel! This can be the third mean…

    Obviously current Carnot cycle has higher efficiency than current Photovoltaic (and as Andrea said in the past also better yield than the ECat QX itself when used to produce electricity), so the only reason i see to have all three form of energy, is that driving the ECat QX to emit a certain mix of energies is the best in terms of COP and/or stability, and it’s best not forcing the ECat to emit only heat or only light or only electricity…

    Am I right?

    Regards,
    Marco.

  186. Andrea Rossi

    Marco:
    It depends in the specific situations.
    Thanks for your insight.

    You said you are many years ahead your competitors in LENR.
    Why?
    1) Higher Cop
    2) You think to have reached a level of knowlegde in LENR, that allows you can understand and use in a reliable way this tech.

  188. Andrea Rossi

    Domenico Canino:
    As a matter of fact, I never comment the work of our competitors.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you still able to directly produce electricity from the current version of your reactor?

    If so, what are the variable ranges (percentages)?

    Same questions for the production of light.

  190. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Premature to answer, but the QX version of the E-Cat majes efficient ststems inefficient with the former version.

    Hello Andrea,

    We live in the country, and we have a mamma bear that nests in our backyard on the river shoreline. Your anecdote was particularly interesting in that light. Your reply correlates with 2 kings 2:23-24, quoted below:

    As he was going along the way, some young boys came out from the city and began to jeer at him, and they kept saying to him: “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” 24 Finally he turned around and looked at them and cursed them in the name of Jehovah. Then two she-bears came out of the forest and tore 42 of the children to pieces. 25 He kept going from there to Mount Carʹmel, and from there he returned to Sa·marʹi·a.

    https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/nwt/books/2-kings/2/

    So then, your reply was in context with the bible, but it’s nice to have proof from the scriptures.

    Question of the Day …
    Re: September 21 … “Yes. It has been great, but with necessity of some improvements.”

    Q1: Will the improvements be completed before the presentation?
    Q2: Are the improvements for 1) Manufacturing; 2) Functionality; 3) Sigma 5; 4) All of the above.
    Q3: Your partner expresses interest in making electricity. Will this be directly from the 1) QuarkX or using the 2) Carnot cycle?

    Looking forward very much to your upcoming presentation.

    Tom

    ps: I hope your partner is ABB, it would be exciting.

  210. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you for your insight.
    Answers:
    1- yes
    2- 4

    HI, want to let ya know that gravity is impossible by mass that produces gravity itself, so the bigger mass, the bigger gravity that holds us; the smaller mass, the smaller gravity. But that means small and big mass does have gravity that holds small mass within a big mass. Each different position of mass is a battle if big to small, except the same level of two, so it cancels out gravity. But what about the middle of mass, the empty space, there is energy in empty space. So, it is same as magnet that produces gravity which it is a pressure field from Aether, so it can’t be all elements because within element there is a process like magnet with electricity, which both combine to density, well, magnet as energy as potential energy, and electricity as mass-energy, like current. Not all mass is a gravity that pulls or push unless it is enough magnet-density to produce the felt of energy which it is pushed or pull.

    So, Aether is low density, mass is high density, depends the density of mass, if high enough, then pressure from Aether outward from a high density of mass can’t be felt, unless it is a resonate, the closest to Aether, zero density or very low density.

    Like a feather is a density of solid, an air is a density of a gas, so solid is higher density than gas. Yet air can push and repel air, because that high density is very close to low density, and that low density is many in space that causes a push or pulls to higher density. Everywhere that meets specific place.

    So, the gravity that can’t hold the air because it is a low density of gravity from earth that pull gravity to holds us, so air should except gravity since it is weaker in further distance from a surface of the earth, that match law of science. Not opposite. So, there must be a dome that holds air that matches the high density of energy which can be felt, which if a magnet is big enough, we can feel the pressure, right. The movies and assume the real life of space that you feel is fake from NASA and do not match the reality of real science, which you provide better science than mainstream science, which they ignore and lie. If lie about science, so can lie about physical reality.

    So, it is not gravity, but pressure, but pressure can be felt outward at the macro level if it is a resonate, a low density that can go thru a tunnel to macro level to high density and still can be felt. So, it has to be closest or at exactly in balance that matches law of balance, or Newton’s law, the 3rd law for motion. I am sure ya think gravity is a mistake in your mind when you thought about it since not make sense? I got the idea from Flat Earth, so it expands science in my mind, so science expands in your mind that you create QRT that is better than mainstream QT. It is about density, heat means higher density as there is more current; cold means lower density as there is more potential, well, there is a ratio of potential and mass-energy. So, there are two things: low density to high density. So, not need gravity, it is just electricity and aether in a ratio and balance for everything.

    Plus Gravity does depend on mass that holds us, so if there is no big gravity, then we float up, so the low density can pull up higher density, which it is illogical since high density is stronger than low density. So, the magnet that produces gravity-like an energy that holds us, so it is on a side that is high density that pulls Aether from low density, as it travels as it is still a low density, without canceling out from high density that reduces Aether, like a current. A tunnel of low density with a side that is high density, the mass. It does match a ring, the center is empty, and the outer ring is a mass. I am sure inner edge of the ring to outer edge of the ring is important for energy and mass. I am sure everything in an atom is important for what makes an atom. So, I guess Aether can be felt if it is high density from a magnet, or can’t because low density will go thru high density. Ya can explain in a book if ya did for how pressure-energy that is invisible that can cause push and pull the mass that is visible. Since mass is higher density as we can see and weight, to invisible which has no weight and can’t be see-thru high degree microscope.

    So, can update so not include gravity, but pressure and they are looking for gravity like gravity is a mass, but the magnet that produces energy that pressures you, so it is not a mass, but aether. So, mainstream rejects Aether to the mass, for technology and everything.

    So, can ya explain on website what is different between centripetal acceleration and Helical trajectory that is an emission from an electron as photon. There is two dynamic motion, but both are different right, so Helical is expanding in vertical in series as it goes horizontal motion. So, it is a series of motion. Two motion, forward motion from a source that pushes, and Aether motion that pushes upward vertical, as Aether get higher in density so it pushes further in vertical at each series of horizontal motion. So, where Helical come from? Does it come from motion of source that is moving, so the forward motion from source will turn as a wave or there is an expand and contract of source so the mass narrow and expand. Can put a picture for centripetal acceleration, like ya did for Helical trajectory.

    I was thinking there is two source of helical motion that is if source is moving up and down, so forward motion from source move up and down as a wave. Or if source as static is contracting, then to starting diameter, so not expanding, so photons do create a wave. But I might be wrong because it is the wrong source, so can’t be an electron that contract to starting diameter, then contract again, so is there any source in an atom that does that?? Any source in an atom that can move up and down? It is just static, if there is motion, then the motion is union of all source within an atom, so they all move in a union, so there is no visual wave or anything, but horizontal, because it is smooth. Or curve if all source within atom moves in a curve.

    You mention anti-particle, but it is not anti, but aether particle since it is from Aether as energy that causes push and pulls that cause visual motion of mass to move. Mass particle vs. Aether particle. So, Anti is negative mass, from the aether, so not an imaginary number, but a negative real number. It would be better than imaginary as not real unless you are God that image can be caused to be real.

    Hugh,

    A Christian does forgive his enemies but he is not called to be stupid. Not inviting your enemies to the demonstration is not a sign of lack of forgiveness, only a sign of wisdom. Why rub Andrea’s success in the face of those that opposed and ridiculed him. To seek such revenge would be truly non-Christian.

  235. Davina

    Dr Rossi,

    Question please:

    Q: will the demonstration benefit the media interest in LENR?

    or will this demonstration be intended for the scientific
    community to draw its own conclusions, to be further
    discussed on internet boards to make determinations.

    Best Regards,

    Davina

  236. Andrea Rossi

    Davina:
    None of both.
    It is intended to realize my will to present the E-Cat QX working. I think it is interesting.
    Before her introduction in the market, better take these demos minimalistically. We will not be able to give any information useful to the competition before being ready to make a mass production, which means before we will be able to make pointless the competition.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  237. Hugh Maguire

    Dear Readers:
    I asked Rossi by email why he does not pardon his enemies and invite them to the presentation of the E-Cat QX: I told him as a Christian he has the duty to pardon and maybe also to disclose confidential data so that his competitors could at last do something working.
    Here is what he answered:

    “An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. ‘What majestic trees!
    What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals: behold, all this from Evolution!’, he said to himself.

    As he was walking along side the river he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He
    turned to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him.

    He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and
    saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder
    again and the bear was even closer. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over
    to pick himself up but saw the bear right on him, reaching for him with
    his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant the atheist cried out: ‘Oh My God!’

    Time stopped, the bear froze and the forest was silent.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky: ‘You
    deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don’t exist,
    and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this
    predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?’

    The atheist looked directly into the light, ‘It would be hypocritical of
    me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you
    could make the BEAR a Christian?’

    ‘Very well’, said the voice. The light went out, and the forest resumed.

    He looked at the bear and the bear dropped his right paw, brought both
    paws together and bowed his head and spoke these words:

    ‘Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty
    through Christ our Lord, Amen.’ “

  244. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. Given that we are now within 30 to 60 days of the demonstration, may I assume that the procedures, methodologies and reporting parameters are well defined?
    2. When you say you will “give input power”, will this be averaged power? If so, over what period of time will you be averaging, milliseconds, seconds, hours?
    3. Will an oscope capture of the input power going to the controller be made available?
    4. Will data associated with the output power determination be made available — temperature change, mass flow rate. If so, over what resolution of time?
    5. Will calibration data of measurement devices be made available?

  245. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    The information about the test will be given just before the test itself.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  246. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, do you think that among the data you will give at the end of the presentation there will also be the values of input power, output power and COP?

    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

  247. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    We will give input energy, output energy.

  250. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    With my over 45 years of experience in engineering and product development, it is not unusual to see a presentation slip to the right. If you complete the demonstration within this calendar year, you will have accomplished a major event. Best wishes. My advice – don’t present until you are 100% ready. You have one chance to make a good impression.

  251. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I agree.

    Dear Andrea,

    Kindly allow me one more nugget.

    “Every coal fired generator in Australia was built, not just partially subsidised, entirely with taxpayer funds.

    When they were privatised, many were given state owned coal mines with contract prices way below market, effectively a further subsidy.

    Then there are the health costs.”

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you an ardent follower of solar technologies and energy technologies in general? Perhaps in that case you know that the cheapest ordinary power you can buy in the US today is natural gas at 5-6 cents per kWh, correct?

    Here are some recent solar prices from new installations/auctions around the world — some subsidized, others not:

    Gobi Desert: 1 GW solar plant, 6 c/kWh
    Palo Alto: 3.6 c/kWh with subsidies, 5.1 c/kWh with no subsidies
    India: Rewa Ultra Mega Solar, 4.5 c/kWh, no subsidies
    Mexico: Average bid 5.1 c/kWh, lowest bid 3.5 c/kWh by Enel (an Italian company), unsubsidized
    Chile: 5.1 c/kWh average bid, lowest bid 2.91 c/kWh (in August 2016, the cheapest unsubsidized contract for electricity of ANY SORT, EVER!)
    Then, in September 2016 Dubai had a 1.3 GW plant for 2.42 c/kWh; less than half the price of natural gas in the US; dramatically lower than natural gas in Middle East or Africa; four companies came out with bids of less than 3 cents per kWh!

    As you know, there are 1.3 billion people without electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, and the cheapest energy in the future will be in the sunny parts of the world. This will have major geopolitical ramifications, whether people choose to believe in or not.

Is it better to give your work as a gift to the world, or to take it to the grave with you? Tesla took his work to the grave. Will you continue to wait, refine, R&D, and partner, until the day you die? They will burn your papers at your funeral, and toast their success.

    The wealthy rulers of this world have put a cork in the bottle of your genie, and thrown it out to sea.

    Dr. Rossi: Below find an email exchange with Frankie Fruge President of Cyclone Power asking if they are interested in mating their Cyclone engines with your E-Cat. She responded saying she contacted you and you did not respond. She apparently thinks it is a good idea. Is there a reason you do not want to pursue this obvious benefit for both companies?

    Dear Bernie,

    Yes it is and I have contacted them in the past as we are the only real game in town to use this. They have not responded. I told them to bring it here and we will run the Cyclone engine on it.

    People are more interested in advertising and getting money. We went down the wrong trail with the public company that has cost us 60% of all of our income and the rest on product, no advertising and no real money.

    I am in the process of trying to change that as we need those two things to get the product into production.

    Dear Andrea
    Waiting for the October ‘demonstration’ (do you have a date?) I was thinking on how can be a huge E-Cat based Power Plant.
    Lets imagine that you are ready for the industrialization and someone ask you for a 1GW Electrical output Plant; based on your actual knowledge how you imagine it will be structured.
    Will it be a huge concentration of Quarks that generates heat and 1-3 big turbines, or maybe an array of many 1MW plant, or something different.

  291. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    That YouTube on using solar photovoltaics to pump water uphill into a large holding area and then using it as a hydroelectric plant to generate electricity – what a truly great idea. Substitute an eCat to continuously provide power to pump the water to a large area when the demand is low and they supplement the electrical power during the peak load times. You might ask your applications team to run an analysis to see if it makes economic sense. Probably not if you are in an area where land is expensive.

Please see this article for further information regarding the current cost of just about all types of energy generation modalities.

    Please have a look at this article. “https://cleantechnica.com/2017/05/24/tucson-utility-inks-deal-solar-power-costs-less-3-cents-per-kilowatt-hour/”

    Dear Andrea.
    Steven N. Karels is correct in pointing that solar energy is totally dependent of a storage facility.
    The price of the storing devices must be added to cost of the sun collectors.
    Solar energy may be used as a supply to a coal fired plant, which is almost impossible to regulate as the sun shifts trough a day and even day/night. The sun-plant must then be able to cover the costs of the high idle charge of the coal-plant.
    A gas fired plant is far easier to regulate, but the cost of having such a plant ready without production must be covered by the solar plant since this is dependent of the gas fire for supply in nights and days with a low solar intensity, and not vice versa.
    How nuclear power plants functions in cooperation with solar plants is not a part of my knowledge.

    Solar energy functions best in cooperation with hydropower, as this is quick and easy to regulate and there are a “build in” function of power-storage in the dam. To save water in dry periods with lots of sunshine is a benefit for owners of a hydropower works. (A surpluss of solar energy may also be used to pump back water to the dam.)
    To calculate the actual price of solar energy is not an easy target.
    For a E-cat powered plant calculation will be far easier when the details of performance and the price of the E-cats are available and sigma 5 dependability is achieved.

  314. Dear Mr. Rossi,

    The worship of solar energy, windmills, and the irrational fear of carbon have become a religion and a powerful political force. Members of this new religion make false posts all over the Internet about how cheap solar and wind power are, yet they all still insist solar and wind must be mandated and subsidized. Obviously, if they were telling the truth about the low cost and efficiency of wind and solar projects, you would not have to force and bribe anyone to buy them. They have no respect for free markets and free choice.

    A great mental antidote to this new false religion is to watch “THE GLOBAL WARMING FAD – Paleoclimatologist Bob Carter: Climate Context As A Basis For Better Policy” on YouTube. The professor is truly brilliant and quite funny as well.

    I worked since when I was 20 years old to when I was 40 years old in the field of the BACT ( Best Available Control Technologies) to make sustainable the emissons from the combustion of polluting fuels, among which coal. As a consequence of this experience I assure you that, with proper technologies, coal can be burnt in a sustainable way. On the contrary, so far the gurus of the solar stuff have still to give evidence of the fact that the solar-religion-sustained apparatuses are able to compete in the field of energy production without the funding coming from the bills paid to the taxpayers.
    The MWh produced with thermoelectric generators fueled by coal supplied by BACT anti-pollution plants costs 35-50 $.
    The MWh produced with solar devices costs between 300 and 400 $ (the energy produced by solar apparatuses is a small fraction of their power, because the sun shines only a small portion of a day, as an average, on this planet) and the difference is paid by the taxpayer ( look carefully at your bills ).
    This is the fact and the hypocrisy that makes the halo around the solar myth is destroying jobs. I have nothing to earn to write this, but I can’t stand persons that try to destroy honest people only because the “destroyers” are not able to compete on a fair ground.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    The use of solar technology to generate electricity is viable as only a member of an integrated approach. Obviously, solar does not work at night. So energy storage during the daylight hours for later use to provide electricity during the evening hours would be required if solar were to be used for Baseload (continuous) purposes. Some techniques propose to use molten salts (heated by solar power during the day and tapped that heat during the evening) but there are many inefficiencies involved (turn solar electricity to heat tp warm the molten salts, cooling losses, then the Carnot cycle to generate steam and then to produce electricity). A solar-only approach is not compatible with our current electrical society.

    Ecat Technology (if it is real and can be economically implemented) suggests Baseload operation – 24 x 7 operation for a year, continuous output level power. The energy solution requires an integrated approach. Solar could drop to near $0 per MWhr and Solar would still be so limited.

    Australia is a great place to produce solar electricity — lots of unused land, desert, with an abundance of sunlight (insolation). They could become the solar electricity source for the world if there was a way to transport the electrical power to other places. But they are 1/2 a world away from the US and Europe. So their day time is our night time. If economical and environmentally safe electrical power transmission technologies were developed, then a world wide solar-based electrical system might be feasible. But, as of now, it is for sci-fi writers only to dream of. But there would be transmission losses and likely environmental impacts.

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect, may I recommend you review your knowledge about solar and government subsidy. This is now falling a lot and in fact the fossil fuel power generation industry is the one heavily subsidised.

    Best regards,
    Patrick

    Quote from http://www.solarcitizens.org.au/myths


    MYTH: Renewable energy can’t compete economically with burning coal for power.

    FACT: The fossil fuel industry is heavily subsidised.

    The energy market in Australia is not a level playing field. The fossil fuel-based electricity system we have today is built on government subsidies, and fossil fuels continue to enjoy government assistance. For example, the Tamberlin Inquiry in NSW revealed that the government-owned Cobbora coal mine sold coal to power stations ‘at cost price’ (roughly 30 per cent of the price paid by other generators on the open market), which meant that: ‘…State-owned generators and gentraders [had] access to coal at a lower price than would have been available to them had they had to source such coal through a tender process.’

    This amounts to a subsidy of around $4 billion over the life of the contracts, and it is just one example of where taxpayers are footing the bill.

    On top of that, fossil fuels have been subsidised by not having to pay for the greenhouse gases they produce, and for the other health and environmental impacts they cause.

    Analysis published in the American Economic Review calculated that the economic damage caused by air pollutants from coal burning (in terms of health impacts and local pollution) exceeds the value of the electricity produced.”

    Dear Andrea,
    With respect to your E-Cat jet engine experiments– it seems that there would be some commonality between jet engines (for aircraft) and microturbines (for a relatively compact form of power generation), do you think that your jet engine experiments could someday open the way towards generating electric power in that fashion?

    Dear Andrea,

    I know you have been seeking for 5 sigma for many months now, and I hope you are able to achieve this goal. It is clearly very important to you; however, I am still a bit unclear about what the significance of 5 sigma is — can you explain what the benefit will be to you if you finally reach the point of 5 sigma.

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Ophelia quote on ECW –

    “Rossi is doing the right thing selling the power.

    That should be required for anyone claiming to be able
    to produce energy from some new technology, sell the energy.
    Delivering energy below market cost is very convincing.”

This is why we will go on the shelves only when we will be able to be unbeatable in the competition. In the meantime, we will manufacture only industrial plants that will be managed directly by us.

    Dear Andrea,

    You say that you are now ready to produce electricity via Carnot cycle on an industrial scale.

    As you know, every year multi-megawatt coal plants are retired, having passed their useful lifespan, and thus we lose a source of grid power, while our world’s thirst for energy increases.

    Is the E-Cat QX developed enough now to be able to fuel a power station generating 500 MW of electricity (the average size of a US coal plant)?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  387. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Attention: I did not say that we are ready now to produce on industrial scale the E-Cat: I said that we are ready to produce industrial plants able to be coupled with the Carnot cycle system.
    Our construction and delivery time is not yet comparable to the time allowed by a massive industrial production, that is our target, but not our present capacity.

    Robert Curto,

    The U.S. electrical generation system is composed of four types of generation; baseload; seasonal baseload; intermrdiate; and peak. The heaviest consumption of electricity occurs seasonally during the summer and winter months. There is about a 60% variation over a single day in the consumption of electricity – heaviest in the late afternoon and lowest in the early morning hours.

    Since a Carnot cycle is used to generate the electricity (heat water to steam, turbines, etc.), the baseload generation unit is run continuously at the optimum efficiency setting for the overall generation unit. Then intermediate and peak generation is added to meet increased demand. Examples of baseload generation are coal-fired and nuclear plants. I believe this is where Ecat technology will most likely find its first power generation application.

  398. Dr. Rossi, if you can produce heat and electricity for 90% less cost, with zero emissions, who is going to compete with that ?
    Coal Plants kill, that is a fact.
    Nuke Plants produce Radioactive Rods, that have to be watched for over 100,000 YEARS.
    Solar and Wind work part time.
    I don’t know much about Natural Gas, but it cannot be less expensive then E-Cat.

    Can E-Cat produce electricity for a Condo, with each Apt. using what they need true a Meter ?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As we fret about carbon footprints, I am almost positive some government agency will start restricting wood-based campfires because of their CO2 output. So why not an Ecat based “camp fire”, for keeping warm, a soft glow, roasting marshmellows, etc. I would assume the control unit could be in the tent and the Quark reactor in the fire pit. With suitable “crackling noises” added for ambiance, plus the absolute control of the Quark temperature, and thus its blackbody radiation, a suitable simulated wood campfire could be produced. Plus no worry about starting the fire because of rain or throwing gasoline on the wood to start the fire. When can you produce these — LOL?

    I understand that at the first stage you will manage the units yourself and sell energy.
    1. When do you plan to switch to selling finished products? (one, three, five years?)
    2. Do you plan to separately separate Quark X in the future, separate control systems, for further assembly by the client of various installations for different purposes? Or just finished products?
    3. Will the certification of the installations you use be different and which customers will use or not?
    4. Do you need additional certification for the sale of individual items (Lego)?
    Sorry, maybe it’s too early to ask such questions.
    Presentation at the end of October? Look forward.

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I am sure you are aware of this project, I would ask your thoughts on the possibility of pairing a Quark X array with this.

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

    It would seem, to my laymans imagination, that this would be within the Quark X’s range of operation and quite a good match up as the current generator schematic requires about 1/2 of the generated electricity to be used to heat the gas.

    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.

    The 54 Cats at Hemingway House in Key West survived Hurricane Irma. These cats have 6 toes (per paw) and apparently have more lives as well. Unfortunately, in the overall area affected by Hurricane Irma, there was considerable property damage and, tragically, loss of life and serious injuries. I am posting this, because it may provide a lighter note to this event.

    Dear Andea,
    Sorry that I continue asking about this further, but as an electrical engineer I find this highly intriguing. When you say that an electrical power plant with an E-cat QX is expected “much earlier” in operation than within 10 years, then plans must be quite developed.
    Can you expand a bit on that e.g.:
    1. Is the power level a: 0.1-1MW; b: 1-5 MW; c: >5 MW?
    2. Will it be in operation in a. 4 years?
    3. Is it based on a steam cycle or an other medium?
    Thanks!

    Dear Andrea,
    I have never experienced anything like a cat 4 or 5 Hurricane but after following the story of Irma I was quite stricken by the force of nature and how broad ranging and powerful it can be.

    It occurs to me that In many ways with the e-cat you are looking at the maximum power of nature in the very small while outside nature was showing her strength in the very large.

    I only saw some news pictures of the storm at Cat 3 and already it had awesome power. For those communities that experienced Cat 5 it must have been devastating. I hope despite the obvious damage those communities in the Caribean and Florida are able to recover relatively soon.

    I wonder how responses to these kind of situations can be improved and maybe if one day some technology based on the e-cat can help that. It seemed to me the things most needed quickly are food water and shelter, along with fuel and power. Maybe be a generator that can be brought by Helicopter, boat or truck along with tents and dehydrated food that can make use that generator would help a lot with those things. I know these things can’t happen fast but I have hope that maybe they will be possible someday.

    My best regards to you, your family and team especially those of you who went through this storm.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, you have been the witness of very inusual and dangerous phenomenons as you have written:
    “..We have a tornado now.
    I can see from a small window a very interesting pattern of vortexes produced from some geometries. Very interesting…”

    “…It has been a very interesting experience, under many points of view.
    I learnt many things in these days…”

    Is it possible for you, having time, to tell us more details? Thank you
    Kind regards,
    Italo R.

    Italo R.:
    Infinite particilars very difficult to explain briefly.
    In a nutshell: observatoons of turnolences of ait at 180 km/h in a real asymmetryc field; observation of my reaction in front of this totally new kind of fear and consequent corrections; learnt all the shortcomings should the hurrican have really been of the expected cath 5 (300 km/h): what to do to be safe also in that case.

  437. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Thanks God you have survived Irma. I hope you did not have many difficulties with any services like power, water, telephone etc. or flooding around the building during her passage?
    Just another question crossed my mind lately. There are many customers approaching you. Were there any customers that have asked you to deliver heat for an electrical power generation unit? Would you be prepared to go into a joined venture with such a customer in short terms?

  438. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for your concern.
    All the issues from Irma have been overcome.
    Answer:
    Yes
    Warm Regards

    Dear Andrea.
    Whether Irma was a result of global warming or not, may be difficult to confirm.
    Chines authorities are now considering possibilities to ban vehicles driven by hydrocarbons.
    The most obvious alternative is vehicles with electric motors.
    One of the most prominent benefits of the QX is the high energy content versus weight.
    One QX, with the approximately weight of 2,5 grams, may submit 200 kWh within a life span of 10 000 hours of use. This is about the same amount of energy as in 20 kg gasoline.
    A bundle of 6 kg QX (2400 pieces) may submit a continuous heat of 48 kWh.
    This may be enough to produce 16 kWh electricity through the Carnot cycle.
    With help from a battery of the size of 1/10 of a standard Tesla battery, a lightweight car may function well with this power source.
    (When not on the road, such a car may also provide the owners house with electricity.)
    For the drive alone, in average 2 hours a day, the QX bundle will last for 14 years and reduced the CO2-pollution directly with approx. 120 tons. (The lack of need for production and transport of hydrocarbons will increase this amount.)
    This may not reduce the price of cars or the cost of using cars since the cost of the roads will still be the same, but the global warming and local air-pollutions may be reduced very much.
    I hope your decision of selling energy do not prevents developing solutions for such a use.
    Regards: Svein Henrik.

    To All concerned about:
    at 6.30 PM Irma is gone from the area around Miami; she moved toward west.
    We have not been damaged, but now we will have to manage the flooding. In my specific situation I did not have any damage or delay and I worked all the time through during these 2 days.
    Unfortunately the hit has been tremendous in the Keys.
    I want to thank all of you that sent explicit or spiritual sustain.

    I am working .
    We have a tornado now.
    I can see from a small window a very interesting pattern of vortexes produced from some geometries. Very inreresting.
    I am safe, well shielded.
    This morning the force here is higher, winds at 85 miles per hour ( about 135 km/h ).
    Obviously curfew has been ordered. The flooding here is foreseen between 5 and 10 ft ( 1.5 to 3 m ).
    The E-cat QX is hurricane proved now ( he he he ). Things are going to get worse, though.

    Dear Andrea,

    My wife and I are praying for you and all those suffering from these atypical storm systems. I understand your decision to stay at your work place, but … well, we are praying. I am at a loss for scripture to share for the last few days, but this morning, I hope, I have something of value to share. We all have you in our prayers, my friend.

    Tom

    Ps 90:12-17;
    12 Teach us how to count our days
    So that we may acquire a heart of wisdom.
    13 Return, O Jehovah! How long will this last?
    Have pity on your servants.
    14 Satisfy us with your loyal love in the morning,
    So that we may shout joyfully and rejoice during all our days.
    15 Make us rejoice in proportion to the days you have afflicted us,
    For as many years as we have experienced calamity.
    16 May your servants see your activity,
    And may their sons see your splendor.
    17 May the favor of Jehovah our God be upon us;
    May you prosper the work of our hands.
    Yes, prosper the work of our hands.

  462. Steve

    Andrea,
    I’ll be praying for you and for your family’s and team’s safety.
    I trust you are in a safe location, high enough not to be overcome by the water surge.
    I have been too busy with the Law School to routinely post on JONP, but I still read it most every day.
    Please keep up yur most important work,
    Steve

  463. Andrea Rossi

    Steve:
    Thank you for ypur concern.
    Our factory is hurricane resistant, my family is safely lodged, I am hurricane proof: as a matter of fact, I am more hurricane than Irma ( he,he,he ).
    Speaking seriously: the storm is increasing right now (12.10 P.M.), wind and rain are surging, but the core of it is moving west, saving to our place the harder part. So far. We all are worried for the people in the Keys, where it seems the hurricane will unleash all its power. They need our prayers.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  464. Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Also today the E-Cat QX is making properly his job.
    So far Irma did not hit, in this moment we are just experiencing guts of wind and some rain typical of the average storms in the Miami area in this season.
    The hit is foreseen by this afternoon, by the route of the events cone has changed, in the sense that the hurricane cyclon is rotating toward west, so that it should not hit frontally our area.
    The part of Florida that is supposed to be frontally stricken by the hurricane is now the area of the Keys, between Key West and Marathon.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  465. Lucio Martini

    Dear Ing. Rossi;

    Let me explain to you why the Carnot cycle can not be obtained with steam

    Because you do not waste time, I’m sending you a sketch on which I designed the Rankine cycle that develops between points: 1-2-2′-3-4, to which I have superimposed the cycle of Carnot that develops in points 2 “-2′-3-4 The two cycles, obviously working at the same temperatures and pressures I hope that both visible I hypothesized that the two cycles will develop between:
    T1 = T4 = 40 ° C p1 = p4 = 0.07375 bar = 7.375 kPa
    T2 = T3 = 250.33 ° C p2 = p3 = 40 bar = 4000 kPa
    I save the calculations, the results are:
    ηR = 0.345 (Rankine)
    ηC = 0.402 (Carnot’s)
    with x=71.5% in point 4 stop expiation steam (x is the ratio of the steam that mean 71.5% steam and 28.5%water in a wet steam)
    As expected, Carnot wins.
    However, the problem to realize this loop is in point 2 ” (where x=30.55%)
    It is impossible (or almost impossible) stop the condensation with a steam with x=30.55% title (at counts). In addition compress the steam wet would cause serious cavitation problems and finally in boiler where we have the steam at 250 ° temperature it would enter steam at 40°C with predictable thermodynamic mismatches.
    In the point 3 last problem is this: after turbine expansion, the value obtained x = 71.5% is low, should be x= 90% (but better more) to avoid problems of damage to the turbine.
    To avoid turbine problems, the saturated steam must be overheated in step 3. Saturated steam (in both cycles). But overheating would not get Carnot’s cycle. The overheated part is an isobaric, not isothermal transformation!
    Dear Ing. Rossi, I had, Ihave, and always will have it maximum esteem for you and how much you is doing.
    I also hope that the new E-TIGER QX directly produces electricity.
    Steam would be a problem in special way for the domestic plants
    While I am waiting “my” E-CAT, I have been one the first subscribers.
    Sincerely, and wish you all the best.
    Lucio Martini.

    P.S. I also calculated what happens by moving points 2 – 3 to 30 and 50 bar
    maintaining the condensation at points 1 – 4 at 40 ° C
    obtaining ηR = 0,355 ηC = 0,583 for 50 bar and ηR = 0,332 ηC = 0.382 for 30 bar but point 2 “keeps changing only slightly (x=30%: x=27% in stop condensation 2” Carnot very hight for the pump. But: x=70.3% ; x=73% in both cycles, very low for the turbine)

  466. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini,
    Thank you for your insight.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    It is obvious enemies abound to see your work’s destruction, especially those who: ”walked according to the course of this world, according to the PRINCE of the POWER of the AIR, the spirit that now works in the (those) children of disobedience:” (Eph 2:2). What his children have not yet been able to do; he is now targeting you directly as ground zero. He does not want your vision for this world to succeed. I and those here (I am sure) will be praying for those remaining in southern Florida but also specifically for you and your team’s family’s safety.
    May God protect and bless you all.
    Brokeeper

  468. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for your protection. Don’t worry. I saw much more difficult situations than this.
    I am just working with the E-Cat QX and happy to. Nobody is going to stop us, if our work is useful and well done, as difficult as it might be ( it is ).
    Warm Regards,

    Abd ulRahman Lomax:
    I strongly appreciate your candor.
    Your prayers in this specific situation will be useful not only to me, but to all the Floridians. Let’s hope for the best, after we have prepared for the worse. Anyway now, at the eve of the hit, I am working on the E-Cat QX, albeit I sent away all the rest of the team several hours ago. The hit will arrive tomorrow starting at 3 PM Miami time. I am most curious than worried, though. Never seen anything of the kind before, therefore something will have to be learnt, positive or negative as it might be.

    Dear Andrea:

    You have shared that some in the crude oil distillation industry have or will visit you to presumably learn more about the E-Cat QX and possibly enter into a business arrangement.

    Also, you have responded to Gerard McEk saying that the E-Cat QX plant you are currently constructing for industry will produce heat in the range of 100-200C.

    The following link outlines the temperatures applicable to crude oil distillation, showing a peak operating temperature of about 400C. Does this support the assumption that your targeted industrial customer(s) are not in the oil refinery industry?

    Again, thank you for your willingness to share.

    Dear Andrea,
    It is exciting to hear that you have already started to construct plants of a considerable capacity (> 1MW). Please allow me to ask some questions about it:
    1. You will deliver energy and I assume it will be heat energy. Is that right?
    2. If so will it be a. low level heat (100-200 C); b. medium level heat (200-600 C) or c. > 600 C?
    3. May these also plants be used as a demonstration facility for the E-cat QX if everything goes well?
    Thanks.

    Dear Rossi

    Recent lowest bid on a solar farm

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-08-18/chile-s-energy-industry-a-spot-of-light-in-a-darkening-economy

    In last week’s energy auction, Chile accepted a bid from Spanish developer Solarpack Corp. Tecnologica for 120 megawatts of solar at the stunning price of $29.10 per megawatt-hour (2.91 cents per kilowatt-hour or kwh). This beats the 2.99 cents/kwh bid Dubai received recently for 800 megawatts. For context, the average residential price for electricity in the United States is 12 cents per kilowatt-hour.

    Will the ecat qx be as competitive as above offer?

  502. Andrea Rossi

    Arjen:
    As I always said, all the energy sources must be integrated. When you give data related to solar, you always must consider that the efficiency is not a number, but an integral wherein it is in function of the sun irradiation.
    This said, congratulations to the Chilean solar industry!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    While you continue progress toward Sigma-5, you must certainly be aware that Hurricane Irma, a very dangerous Category-5 Hurricane, is heading in the direction of Florida.

    My/(Our familly’s) best wishes for the safety of you and your team during the next several days and weeks.

    Have you protected yourself and your crew, the facility equipment and the E-Cat QX system itself? Or in other words, do you think the E-Cat QX system will be able to operate during the arival and departure of IRMA…..

    Can you reduce power output for 24 hours without impacting the SIGMA-5 test?

    Be well, stay safe and, following the storm, Full Speed Ahead!

The model is the strategy of George Washington during the Independence war: he has been enormously and repeatedly criticized for his continue delay of the important crucial battles, but he accepted the fight only when he was sure his heroic voluntary patriots were ready to fight against the professional forces of the United Kingdom.

    Climate change is a fact, if they say change is abnormal. I would suggest that anything that not changes is more likely to be looked at from a narrow point of view, especially with large scientific and touchable (e.g. oil) evidence that climate has been changing as far as we can tell. Going into deeper detail than media outlets and sponsored research there is scientific evidence for and against climate change and clear scientific and touchable evidence for negative effects of pollution on living beeings.
    In my point of view scientific thinking works very beautifully in a narrow scientific set up with limited variables involved and fails miserably in almost any real world interpretation.

    For example big bang theory is very unlikely from a logical point of view as we are here, so everything created from a single vibration is not very feasible.
    Also expansion of the universe is very unlikely, because where is the universe expanding into and where are it’s boundaries at the first place?
    From a scientific point of view the given explanations are very logical, but from worldly thinking there is just no telling I believe.

    Scientific thinking is very likely to be paradoxical at it’s root, but for a paradoxical thinker to notice his paradoxical thinking is not very easy, as he would have to recognize himself outside of scientific thinking.
    I think modern society has been fooling itself by the science god from time to time

    Dr Rossi –

    This statement by Stephen on eCatWorld pretty much sums it up for us:

    “Personally I think Andrea Rossi is obviously a thoughtful person has his own strong views and opinions and In my view has a good moral compass. I think he wants the ECat to be something beautiful and helpful that’s why he wants to take care of its distribution. I think it has little to do with personal enrichment through money or even fame but everything to do with taking care his invention is for good and is in good hands. Sometimes it’s hard to let something like that free into the world but eventually its time”

    @Frank Acland,

    i) Human induced climate change is a fact, so fossil fuels have to be phased out as soon as possible.

    ii) Present nuclear technology is not clean enough, especially because of the problem of the high radioactive and long lasting waste (caused by the actinides in the waste, that have to be stored and isolated from the environment for more than 200.000 years, which is a geological time scale, knowing also that every 100.000 years there’s an ice age, which puts lot of pressure (masses of ice) on the geological layers they want to store the nuclear waste in, accompanied with big see level change, so geological layers could crack, and geological water could wash out the dangerous actinides.

    iii) In Belgium and in whole Europe, also in the USA, almost all nuclear power plants are old and are operated beyond their normal lifespan. This gives extra costs (and makes them less competitive) and is dangerous.

    iv) Solar and wind energy are variable and destabilize the grid, so we need the E-Cat Quark X as well in stand by for the renewable sources, as well as base load in the energy mix to replace present old nuclear power plants.

    v) In Europa we plan to phase out combustion engines in cars, and want to replace them by electrical driven cars, so we need more electricity from the grid.

    vi) Because of the phasing out of present old nuclear power plants, we will have problems to produce enough energy, so we need the E-Cat Quark X ASAP to take over (as base load and as well as stand-by for the renewable sources).

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel.

  516. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    StudentG suggests that the E-Cat’s impact will be minimal because of the human habit to ignore anything new, and the wide saturation of solar It would seem to me that for the E-Cat to break out, there would be a need for publicity of its benefits. How do you expect to generate widespread interest in the E-Cat?

    Thank you very much,

    Hi,

    I would suggest that both NCY and Rossi are not necessarly right, because both rely on theory.
    What is actually observed is millions of people working in solar, wind and other “renewable” or “recycleable” resources by the day, reducing prices and increasing efficiencies multiple times a year.
    I hope that this technology will be understood from a scientific point of view, but it´s actual importance and usefullness in this mighty market economy will be minimal, not because it´s not a great invention, but time is running way to fast and there is not enough interest because of human habit to neglect anything out of the box for potentially a very long time.
    Current solar technologies are in most places more competetiv than coal and gas beginning from this year, with still very very high potential for example in hetero junction solar cells and thin film such as perovskite cells etc. Similar is true for wind and in a few years with fuell cells. Creative thinking is just way to powerful.

    I also hope that I will be wrong with this opinion 😉

    Dear Mr Rossi,
    I have watched your story for many years now, and am disappointed. While progress is being made, it is being made by you alone, because you alone have the secret to highly efficient LENR.
    If others had the knowledge you have, much more progress could have been made.
    Your recent comments on the topic of the difficulties of commercialization, and the difficulties of producing to market without reverse engineering of your products, are concerning. These comments give the impression that you intend to hold your knowledge hostage until you alone can get this technology to a high level of commercial production by yourself, and only licence commercial plants, all for the sole purpose of making money before this eventual reverse engineering and copying by the chinese.
    This is barely feasible, and the reverse engineering will occur anyway. All it results in is a delay in LENR getting to market.

    LENR is the technology mankind needs NOW, not in five years when you’ve figured out a way to make money off of it. We are all getting old, and there comes a time that you have to ask, “How do I want to be remembered?”

    At the moment it seems that you are well on the track to being remembered as a man who discovered the golden goose, but hid it in his basement until the day he died for fear that someone else would steal his golden eggs and raise a flock of golden geese. While the pursuit of entrepreneurship is admirable, and you feel that something is owed to you for this discovery, your actions have directly led to the delayed development of LENR by holding these secrets to yourself.

    You could be remembered as the man who invented the technology that solved the world’s energy crisis, and saved the world by gifting this technology to it, but you won’t be able to do this by trying to commercialize the device yourself. Take a leaf out of Elon Musk’s book and release your secrets to the world, so that researchers around the globe can join you in your tinkering and develop the next wave of clean energy devices.

    Money is just money, you can’t take it with you to the grave, but respect lasts forever. Which do you want?

  528. Andrea Rossi

    NCY:
    Thank you for your attention to our work, but your theory is wrong for two reasons:

  539. Lucio Martini

    Caro Ing. Rossi
    la pregherei di non pubblicare questa mia riflessione, comunque lascio a lei la decisione.
    Cerco di darle qui la motivazione da ingegnere a ingegnere della difficoltà ad ottenere il ciclo di Carnot con il vapore e quindi la necessità di adottare il ciclo Rankine. Sarebbe più semplice e più facilmente comprensibile se le potessi disegnare il tutto.
    Se lei vorrà disegnare il rettangolo del ciclo di Carnot sotto la campana di Andrews con coordinate T/S (Temperatura/Entropia) iniziando dal punto più alto (per temperatura e pressione) alla sinistra (inizio vaporizzazione ad alta pressione) riscaldando raggiungerà, muovendosi orizzontalmente la completa vaporizzazione (con una trasformazione isotermica), quindi scenderà con una traformazione a entropia costante, riducendo la pressione e la temperatura raggiungendo la temperatura più bassa del ciclo. A questo punto inizia la condensazione che sarà a temperatura costante. Condensazione che dovrebbe arrestarsi, sotto la verticale del primo punto, alla stessa entropia dello stesso primo punto. Da lì il ciclo deve completarsi con una trasformazione a entropia costante, muovendosi in verticale aumentando di pressione e temperatura.
    Ebbene in questo ultimo punto si ha vapore umido, (circa 10% vapore e 90% acqua) ed è difficile arrestare la condensazione (direi impossibile) inoltre pompare il vapore umido dalla bassa pressione alla pressione iniziale distruggerebbe il compressore nel giro di poche ore.
    Si deve pertanto condensare completamente il vapore trasformandolo completamente in acqua e pomparla fino al primo punto, in modo da riprendere il ciclo. In tal modo si ha il ciclo di Rankine. Con rendimento certamente inferiore al ciclo di Carnot. Tuttavia con uno o due surriscaldamenti il rendimento migliora arrivando a un 35%.

    If you want to draw the rectangle of the Carnot cycle under the Andrews bell with T / S (Temperature / Entropy) coordinates starting from the highest point (for high temperature and pressure) to the left (start vaporization of high pressure) heating you will reach, moving horizontally, complete vaporization (with an isothermal transformation), then you will come down with a constant entropy transformation, reducing the pressure and temperature reaching the lowest temperature of the cycle. At this point, the condensation begins at a constant temperature. Condensation that should stop, under the vertical of the first point of the cycle, to the same entropy of the same first point. From there, the cycle must be completed with a constant entropy transformation, moving vertically by increasing pressure and temperature. Well at this third point you have wet steam (about 10% steam and 90% water) and it is difficult to stop the condensation (I think imposible), in addiction pump the wet steam from the low pressure to the initial pressure would destroy the compressor within a few hours. You must therefore completely condense the steam by turning it completely into water and pump it up to the first point, so that you can resume the cycle. This is how the Rankine cycle is. With performance certainly lower than the Carnot cycle. However, with one or two overheating, the performance improves more or less until 35%.
    Con immutata stima.

  540. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini:
    Thank you for your insight, that is interesting and there is no reason not to publish it. I have studied the possibility to couple the E-Cats with the Rankine cycle technology. I did it thoroughly in 2012 with an engineer that manufactures Rankine boilers.
    We arrived to the conclusion that the Carnot cycle is 5% more efficient even with optimal data from the E-Cat. Rankine is better at lower temperatures, but at 550 C is not competitive.
    Disclaimer: I am talking of 2012 and I am not informed about improvements that can have been made in the last 5 years. If you operate in the field and want to make proposals, I am curious and I am here:

  546. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Premature to answer.
    Sharks are around ( especially the most vociferous competitors, whose vociferity is inversally proportional to their capacity to make something real by themselves, otherwise they’d have not time to vociferate ) waiting for the availability of our products to copy them. It is true that our patents cover our IP, but litigations have a huge cost. The best protection will be our economy scale. This makes unlikely that we will put for sale our mass products before we will have completed the industrialization of the manufacturing, to put for sale the E-Cat at a price able to restrain the competition from the beginning. We will continue to sell only big industrial plants, directly managed by us until we will be ready to put in commerce our E-Cats at a price for which the competition will not be encouraged, or able, to proceed against us.

    Dear Andrea,

  563. Chung

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you think that what happened in Houston, Texas, has the global warming as a cause ? If yes, don’t you think such hurricanes never happened before the industrialization of mankind?

  564. Andrea Rossi

    Chung:
    Hard to answer. My opinion is that the changes that are happening in the global climate are probably due to a displacement of the magnetic poles of our planet. I also think that hurricanes like the one of the present tragedy in Texas always happened during the last two centuries. About the relevance of the industrialization of mankind on the climate change on course, I do not think the evidence given so far is convincing. Earth had dramatic changes along its eons, think that the Sahara desert was geographically similar to the Amazon jungle in a former eon. This said, I think it is educating to say ” maybe we can help to reduce the global warming reducing pollution caused by industrialization”: if a wrong opinion can generate a right behavior, it is a good thing; to reduce pollution, if not useful to change the course of the global warming, surely is necessary to improve the health of mankind.

  565. Lucio Martini

    Dear Ing. Rossi
    In response to Manuel Cilia you mentioned the cycle of Carnot. However if the cycle is, as I think, realized using steam, this cycle can not be realized, so it will have to opt for the Rankine cycle with any overheating. However, the yield will be slightly lower.
    Kind regards
    Lucio Martini

  566. Andrea Rossi

    Lucio Martini:
    Why should not be realized? It is surely realizable. The efficiency of the Rankine cycle is max 20%, the efficiency of the Carnot cycle at 50 Bars is 40%.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  567. Dear Dr Rossi

    I my mind your reactor is already working and your part of that will change history. I am a simple engineer and I am trying to couple your tech to work in the world. have you tried high temp experiments, steam turbines are great for very large scale industrial >10Mw scale but for smaller commercial and industrial scale 0.5-1Mw ORC generator seem simpler and less maintenance. What are your intentions for generating electricity or are you getting electricity directly from the reactor

  585. WaltC

    Dear Andrea,

    I’m guessing that after Sigma 5 on a single Quark, you might be putting increased effort into the R&D for making clusters of Quarks. I have a few questions about clusters that I hope you can answer at some level (high or low):

    1) Have you built and begun testing a small cluster of more than 5 or 10 quarks?
    2) On paper, or in your head, do you have a high-level mechanical and electrical design for what a cluster of quarks would look like?
    3) Do you have a physical “mockup” of what a cluster might look like?
    4) Do you think that a cluster intended for “liquid heat transfer” would be the same as a cluster intended for “air heat transfer”?
    5) Off topic: In English, a group of cats is called a clowder (something I just now learned)– not very catchy; is there perhaps an Italian word for a group of cats?

    Thanks,
    WaltC

  586. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- yes, with different heat exchangers
    5- a group of animals is in general defined “branco”: as far as I know, there is not a specific vocabule for a “branco” of cats. In Italian, we’d say ” un branco di gatti” to translate the English vocabule ” clowder “.

    You told Frank Ackland that you are still solving problems and not only technical ones, but als financial ones. You link that in some way to 5 Sigma. My question: Although you are not sharpening the tips of the pyramids, does 5 Sigma do more than just sharpening your confidence in the E-cat QX? Is it also required for your next steps as well?
    Anyway, I congratulate you and your team that now the control of the QX is completely satisfying! I hope the rest will follow soon and that you proudly can show the world you hard-born child E-cat QX.

    2. Do you think you will have the necessary financial backing to get your robotized factories to start producing E-Cats in 2018?
    3. Will your robotized factories produce the control units as well as the E-Cats?

    Here’s The Settlement—Getting The License Back Was Rossi’s Top Priority

    In the settlement between Rossi and his US licensee IH, Rossi got the license back together with all E-Cat equipment and materials, while none of the parties will have to pay damages to the other. Getting the license back was his top priority all the time, Rossi explains in this interview.

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

    Frank Acland:
    The answer to this question is very complex. I can say that we are resolving problems, also for what concerns the partnerships necessary for the financial issues bound to the industrialization.
    Basically, we are very close to Sigma 5 level of reliablity of the basic module and putting modules in parallel we can reach any power.
    Hard work is on course. Our Team is getting greater by the day. As Maurizio Crozza says: ” We are not sharpening the tips of the Pyramids”.

    Evidence of nuclear fusion neutrons in an extremely small plasma focus device operating at 0.1 Joules

    ABSTRACT
    We report on D-D fusion neutron emission in a plasma device with an energy input of only 0.1 J, within a range where fusion events have been considered very improbable. The results presented here are the consequence of scaling rules we have derived, thus being the key point to assure the same energy density plasma in smaller devices than in large machines. The Nanofocus (NF)—our device—was designed and constructed at the P4 Lab of the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission. Two sets of independent measurements, with different instrumentation, were made at two laboratories, in Chile and Argentina. The neutron events observed are 20σ greater than the background. The NF plasma is produced from a pulsed electrical discharge using a submillimetric anode, in a deuterium atmosphere, showing empirically that it is, in fact, possible to heat and compress the plasma. The strong evidence presented here stretches the limits beyond what was expected. A thorough understanding of this could possibly tell us where the theoretical limits actually lie, beyond conjectures. Notwithstanding, a window is thus open for low cost endeavours for basic fusion research. In addition, the development of small, portable, safe nonradioactive neutron sources becomes a feasible issue

    Dear Andrea,

    To have max safety and stability a control system with integrative term (PID like if standard) should have also and anti wind-up mechanism.

    Does your control system have an integrative term and so zero error control?
    In the positive case, does your control system have an anti wind-up mechanism?
    If so, please highlight this in every technical documentation: this should increase the possibility and the speed of acceptance for the safety certification.

    If not, please consider to include such features in the control system: integrative term means precise control of the output variable (in this case, temperature) and anti wind-up mechanism means maximum stability.

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    It’s a fact that cold fusion never managed to get out of the labs: do you trust that one day it will be possible with the E-cat, to make it a product that can be bought?

    By saying that I think of the first E-cat (Bologne 2012, 10KW thermal single unit) that we all expect and that has been waiting for its certification for years.

    Subsidiary question: Is the old E-act still relevant, and if so, do you think it will be proposed at the same time as the new QX?

    Regards,

    Michel

  618. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    Of course I think that the E-Cat will enter in the industrialization phase, otherwise I would not spend my life for this R&D.
    About the certification: we have obtained it for the industrial plants, while for the domestic I think the time will not be short, for the reasons I have explained many times in this blog, but I am sure that, after a sound diffusion of the industrial applications, also the domestic applications will obtain the safety certification.
    About the QX: it is the last evolution of the E-Cat, there is no reason to return to the past, because the QX is more efficient.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    Have you ever tried a small amount of Cesium in your device? One advantage is the low ionization energy of this atom, which makes the transfer of higher energies in your device into the infrared spectrum very efficient. Perhaps this would aid you in removing generated internal energies from the internal part of your system. The Alumina tube is quite transparent to infrared frequencies.
    Cool regards.

    Mizuno is replicating the experiment shown in the Gullstrom-Rossi paper, but with a much lower cop:

    Observation of excess heat by activated metal
    and deuterium gas
    Tadahiko Mizuno
    Hydrogen Engineering Application & Development Company, Kita 12 Nishi 4, Kita-ku, Sapporo
    001-0012, Japan
    ABSTRACT
    Reports of heat-generating cold fusion reactions in the nickel–hydrogen system have been
    increasing. The reactions mainly involve nickel with other additive elements. The authors of
    these reports emphasized the importance of an extremely clean system in the electrolytic tests
    in which excess heat was generated. Therefore, we attempted to detect excess heat after
    reducing impurities to a minimum by cleaning the electrode carefully and then fabricating
    nanoparticles in situ in our test system, without ever exposing them to air. As a result, energy
    far exceeding input was continuously obtained. In the best results obtained thus far, the output
    thermal energy is double the input electrical energy, amounting to several hundred watts. The
    generated thermal energy follows an exponential temperature function. When the reactor
    temperature is 300°C, the generated energy is 1 kW. An increase of the temperature is expected
    to greatly increase the output energy.
    We have recently improved the preparation of the electrode material. This enhanced
    reproducibility and increased excess heat. The new methods are described in an appendix.

  643. Dear Andrea Rossi,
    concerning the presentation of the E-Cat-QX in October I have a question. As I understand the presentation made by specialists will central be more or less for commercial purpose, where the scientific background plays a role, but is not the main topic of the event.

    My question, are you planning some kind of advertising effects during the event, for example (what comes to my mind) placing one E-Cat-QX on a glass table where you can (visible and indisputable for all) disconnect the device from the grid, while it is running in self sustain mode, or something like that?

    Dear Andrea,

    I have a question about the SSM that may sound odd to some.

    You have described the SSM as that time frame when the power driving control is turned off. And, you currently are pushing the envelope of the percentage of time in SSM, currently about 70%.

    I am not an engineer/physicist and so I am guessing that the LENR effect is a quantum level effect. If this is so, then my question is this:

    At what scale do you measure the %SSM? At the level of seconds, or at the level of something like nano-seconds? Does it occur at a scale which overlaps the control signals going into the E-Cat QX module?

    If the answer is part of the IP, then of course ignore the question.

    Dear Andrea,

    You stated that the SSM now can be 70% of the time. I wonder if this result can be achieved also under load.

    Let me explain.

    You have a nail sized object that produce about 20W, reaching, supposedly in air, a certain temperature.

    This is due to the thermal equilibrium.

    Now if this nail has to heat a load, e.g. water, the equilibrium temperature will be much lower, provided that the nail produces the same 20W.

    Questions:

    – Is the produced power always the same, namely 20W, so the equilirium temperature depends on the load? Or is the equilibrium temperature that is maintained moreless the same and so with higher load the “nail” produces more energy?

    – In the likely case in which the power is moreless the same and so the equilibrium temperature depends on the load, does the percentage of the time in SSM lower, raise or remain the same at lower temperature?

    Best regards,
    Marco.

    Dear Andrea,
    During a while now I have been wondering how it can be that you are able to get nuclear reactions in a plasma, as described in your and Carl-Oskar Gullström latest paper. Circumstances seem similar to hot fusion, only the temperature is many orders of magnitudes less. Most metals you are using are in vapor in your reactor, so ‘solid state physics’ seems impossible.
    1. Do you still think reactions are taking place in the lattice of a metal or some metals?
    The circumstances of the reaction in the E-cat and the E-cat QX seem to differ a lot. In the past, you said that the reaction would stop if the nickel would melt. Now you are operating it in vaporized nickel.
    2. Do you still believe that both types of reactors are functioning on the same principles?
    I hope that you can answer this in general terms.
    3. If not, will you explain these apparent differences between the two reactor types during/after your demonstration in October?
    Thank you.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY ELECTRICITY GENERATION USING LOW ENERGY THERMAL HEAT GENERATION AND THERMIONIC DEVICES
    Document Type and Number:
    United States Patent Application 20170213611 Kind Code: A1
    Abstract:
    A system and method are provided for generating electric power from relatively low temperature energy sources at efficiency levels not previously available. The present system and method employ recent advances in low energy nuclear reaction technology and thermionic/thermotunneling device technology first to generate heat and then to convert a substantial portion of the heat generated to usable electrical power. Heat may be generated by a LENR system employing nuclear reactions that occur in readily available materials at ambient temperatures without a high energy input requirement and do not produce radioactive byproducts. The heat generated by the LENR system may be transferred through one or more thermionic converter devices in heat transfer relationship with the LENR system to generate electric power.

    Thank you for the answer

  689. 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.

  690. Andrea Rossi

    Colin Watters:
    It does not matter what terminal is connected to the 1 Ohm resistance.

    Good morning, Andrea!

    With your permission please, a couple of questions for you today.

    Is the QuarkX with 20 units still scheduled for use in the presentation in October?
    Have you reduced the controller power enough to use in in the COP calculation?
    Thank you for sharing if you are able to do so.

    Warm regards,

    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?

    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.

    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.

  723. 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.

    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”.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

  763. 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 !

    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.

    https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/measuring-resistance-in-circuit-and-out/

  778. 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?

    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.

    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

  812. 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.

    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.

    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.

  825. 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.

  826. 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

  827. 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?

    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?

  838. 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.

  839. Andrea Rossi

    Donald Anderson:
    We are not recharging any battery.

    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.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

  845. Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    It has been an improvement.
    Warm Regards,

  846. Mario Marini

    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?
    Mario

  847. Andrea Rossi

    Mario Marini:
    Exactly.

    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.

  859. Jaroslaw Bem

    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

  860. 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.

    A.R.

    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.

  869. Marco

    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?

    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

  890. 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.

  891. 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

  892. 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,
    A.R.

  893. 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.

    On your order list since ?? 2011,

    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

    Dear Andrea,
    have you decided what will be the size of the 1 MW E-Cat QX plant (including heat exchangers) you are planning to manufacture and sell for industrial purpose?

    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.

  925. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    At this moment I think we are simply not ready for that application.

    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

    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!

  942. Andrea Rossi

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

  943. 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.

  964. 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,

    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.

    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

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

  971. 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.

  973. 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?

    Thank you for your insight,

    Hi Andrea,

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

    What does (“) represent?

    Thank you!

    Frank

  978. 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.

  982. 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.

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

  984. 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

    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

  991. 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,

    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?

    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?

    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

  1001. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- confidential
    2- premature
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    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?
    Regards,

  1006. Andrea Rossi

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

  1007. 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?

  1008. 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.

    Dear Andrea,

    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 ?

    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

  1018. 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.

  1019. 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

  1020. 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.
    Warm Regards,

    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?

  1024. Andrea Rossi

    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?

  1034. 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

  1035. 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.

  1036. 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…

    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:
    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.

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?

  1054. Andrea Rossi

    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,

  1055. 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.

    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!

    Thank you for all your hard work,

    Tom Conover

    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.

    Thank you,

  1089. Andrea Rossi

    Rick:
    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.

    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…

    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

  1101. 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.

  1102. 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

    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 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?

    “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.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I am glad to hear that you have recovered your health in full, I am am looking foward

    to see the E-Cat QX presentation.

    You mentioned that you are buiding a 1MW E-Cat QX prototype, will you eventually show some photos ?

  1174. 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.

    Warm regards,

    Tom

  1175. Franz

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi
    So, from now on the name of the QuarkX will be: “E-Cat QX”
    Correct?
    Thank you,
    Franz

  1176. Andrea Rossi

    Franz:
    Yes: E-Cat QX she is: a star is born.
    I recovered in full my health, I have recovered in full my time, my Great Team has recovered a full time trouble maker and we are very efficient in our work in these days.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Ok, we wait for the presentation of the Ecat QuarkX in October.
    Thank you for your titanic work,
    Rudy

  1178. Andrea Rossi

    Rudy:
    Yes, it is likely. We are reaching Sigma 5.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    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.
    Maybe a theoretical explication of your effect is difficult in a model that has to be modified, as the Dark Matter has given evidence of.

    Cheers

    Dear Andrea,
    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 for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard
    PS: I hope your relation with your wife didn’t suffer since you won a tennis game?

  1184. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk
    1- as in the past
    2- to be decided
    3- all of them

  1187. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you share why you decided on “E-Cat QX” as the final name?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  1188. 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.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1189. Nils Fryklund

    Dear Andrea!
    Congratulations to the concilliation, very positive. You said that you should delay the demonstration of E-cat QX to after the trial, probably to september. Is this still the plan?
    I am very curiose of how the world will react. I have been following you on the blog for ages and I can see that you are following the law of nature all the time, therefore I have always understood that E-cat is genuin.
    Best regards
    Nils Fryklund

    Nils Fryklund:
    Thank you for your kind words.
    Yes, the E-Cat QX will be presented within the end of October.

  1191. 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.

  1192. 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.

  1193. 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.

  1195. Steven N. Karels

    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…

  1196. Andrea Rossi

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

    JPR:
    Also today the E-Cat QX is in good standing. By the way: this is the final name: “E-Cat QX”

  1198. Koen Vandewalle

    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

  1199. 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.

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

  1203. Andrea Rossi

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

  1204. 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.

  1205. 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,
    A.R.

  1208. 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.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    What are your plans for the regular e-cat(not the QuarkX)?
    Do you still intend to produce it, and if yes, would it be this year?

    Kindest regards,
