  • Mr H

    Thank you (and your colleagues) for all your hard work on this very important field. I understand it must be difficult to deal with all the scepticism but you should know that many of us are incredibly excited and happy about your fantastic progress. This will change the world in a lot of ways and it will probably be quite turbulent but in the end it’s going to be very very positive for mankind, even if it takes a while and we need to take one careful step at a time.

    Thank you.

    Dear Sig. Alessandro Passi:
    We tried water, heavy water and it doesn’t work.

    Dear Dr Fine:
    Defkalion is a highly ethical motivated Company. We are absolutely contrary to any military application, and, sincerely, I do not think it is possible, for many reasons (speed of reaction).
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Joseph Fine

    Dr. Rossi,

    I read somewhere that Defkalion Green Technologies will only produce catalyzer modules for heat or combined heat-power (CHP) purposes.

    Defkalion G.T. and your group are developing commercial systems which are to be operated with high performance, reliability and safety standards. Have you thought about how to protect this technology from being misdirected to less noble purposes?

    Can you protect users from making unauthorized redesigns with unintended consequences? (For example, an attempt to get a higher power gain.) Can this technology be kept away from those who would deliberately design systems that would lead to meltdowns or other calamities.

    J.F.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    Just a thought. If the energy catalizer device you have tested is indepentent of chemical reactions and involves interactions in the nuclei of the components, it should be possible to implement it using heated distilled water under pressure instead of hydrogen. I don’t know whether this would have any practical advantages, but it would be another pointer in the direction of LENR.
    Best wishes,
    Alex Passi

    non sprechi energie arrabbiandosi con i ciarlatani, purtroppo anche su internet siamo affollati da questi personaggi, conservi le energie e continui, grazie mille per i suoi sforzi, ne abbiamo bisogno davvero, ormai questo mondo è divenuto una discarica..rendiamo onore all’Anima umana.

    The setup reminds me of the Shipstones in the Heinlein book “Friday”.

    In that book the inventor had a different way of playing his cards, key being to omit the patent step.

  • Andrea Rossi

    I RECEIVED AND LOST FROM THE SITE TWO COMMENTS, BASICALLY EQUIVALENT FROM:
    MR JOSHUA CUDE AND MR. MURRAY.
    TO BOTH I ANSWER THAT ALL THEIR ISSUES WILL BE RESOLVED IN THE 1 MW PLANT. WE CONTINUE OUR TESTS CLOSED DOORS UNTIL THEN. AT THAT POINT, AS I SAID, THE OPERATION OF THE PLANT EVERY DAY WILL GIVE ALL THE NECESSARY INFORMATION.
    NO MORE PUBLIC TESTS UNTIL THAT DAY.
    WARM REGARDS,

    Dear Mr Antonio Brignoli:
    Thank you for your support. Yesterday night, after a 18 hours working day I was very tired, and let go out a comment probably too hard. Anyway, let’s go to work.

    Egregio ing. Rossi,
    Non si preoccupi più di tanto dei denigratori, ciarlatani che popolano la rete perchè ci sono anche molte persone che come me seguono, sulla rete, il suo lavoro, i suoi progressi e pongono in Lei le speranze per un futuro migliore. Certo nella foresta (rete) fa più rumore un albero che cade(il ciarlatano) che 100 che crescono(osservatori sostenitori). Il tempo è galantuomo e la verità viene sempre a galla.
    L’unica politica corretta è quella del fare, sono pienamente d’accordo con lei. Tiri diritto e faccia in modo che il suo lavoro, nei dovuti tempi e modi, venga svelato al mondo.
    Io non sono nessuno ma spero che queste parole servano a farle sentire il sostegno anche del popolo dei silenziosi.
    Con fede e ammirazione.
    Antonio Brignoli

  • Traditionally, business has been done on an group to group basis, individual to individual or group relationships. We are in the internet revolution; use it. Set up you websites so that others can easily contract with you and your company. If an individual wants to build your system for his individual use, he must pay you a negotiated fee under a specific contract, available on your website, to obtain the specifications and plans to build your produce or system. He is prohibited from sharing and building for resale. If a company wants to become a manufacturer of your product or system, than they must sign that specific agreement, at a specific percentage of the resale or lease price negotiated by the parties to do that. If an individual or company wants to market equipment produced by you or your designated entities, then have a specific contract for that. Enforcement is easy since the systems will be available for all to see, especially those that are abiding by their contracts. Have a comprehensive application process that requires various information to insure the verification of the party(ies). Let the competition in the market place compete to build the best and most affordable systems or products. If you own the IP either on the patent of the produce, copy write of the plans or both, you can easily control your manufacturers, DYIs and marketing groups so that you can make sure that quality and reliability meet your standards and most of all get paid for your efforts and assistance in all aspects of the various methods of production. Now go kick some ass and eliminate the oligarchs from prohibiting your progress

  • Andrea Rossi

    A LOT OF BLOGS ARE SAYING, AMONG INSULTS TO ME, THAT THERE ARE IN THE WORLD SOME LOTS OF “COLD FUSION” PROCESSES WHICH WORK PERFECTLY AND WHICH ARE FAR BETTER THAN THE ONE THAT, MODESTLY, I MADE. GOOD. SOME SAY THAT HIS PROCESS IS THE SAME OF MINE, BUT THAT HE MADE IT MANY YEARS AGO. GOOD. I APPRECIATE THIS. WHAT I WANT TO SAY TO ALL THOSE GUYS IS: PLEASE, INSTEAD OF CHATTERING , MAKE A REAL REACTOR, PUT IT IN OPERATION, PRODUCE kWhS, AS WE ARE DOING. AND DO ALL THIS, AS I DID, WITH YOUR MONEY, WITHOUT ASKING FOR FINANCING. IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN YOUR WORK YOU DO NOT NEED MONEY, YOU HAVE JUST TO WORK, WORK, WORK. WHEN YOU WILL HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PUT IN THE MARKET REAL AND OPERATIONAL REACTORS,ONLY AT THAT POINT YOU WILL QUALIFY TO BE COMPETITORS.
    FOR NOW YOU ARE JUST GT&FMS (GOOD TALKERS & FREE MONEY SEEKERS).
    ALL I DID I DID WITH MY MONEY, NO HELP FROM ANYWHERE. THIS MUST BE CLEAR. TO MAKE WHAT I MADE I HAD TO SELL ALL I HAD. THIS HAS TO BE VERY CLEAR TO THE IMBECILES WHO ARE INSULTING MY WORK.
    IN OCTOBER I WILL PUT IN OPERATION A 1 MW PLANT. DO NOT CHATTER, IF YOU WANT TO COMPETE, GO TO STUDY AND WORK, AS I DO, AND DO THE SAME.

    “we have found a topological (geometric) relationship between the dual torus spacetime manifold of our solution and the structure of subatomic particles described by group theoretical models, typically used to describe subatomic particle interactions. The relationship involves a very specific geometric structure called a cubeoctahedron o in other case a vector equilibrium, which can be constructed from eight edge-bounded tetrahedrons generating twelve radiating vectors and twenty-four edge vectors.”

    I do not deal with commercial issues, sorry.
    Thank you for your kind attention,

  • Daniel

    Questions…

    1. Where can I buy stocks in your company ? :)
    2. Do you have any timeplan when you can have a commercial product ready to sell ? Powerplant size ?
    3. How will you deal with all the orders ? When this thing starts running it’s gonna be a rampage. Will you be able to deliver to all who wants the device ?

    This invention has to be dealt with in a political sense, becourse the whole world is gonna turn upside down.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr. “Propagare”:
    Yes, I have taken all my precautions.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Assuming you were the one out of billions, “The Millenium Physic” who bring the “Cold Fusion” in industrial grade to all of us, one question is of an extra ordinary important beyond all commercial thoughts:

    Did you arrange for a reveal of the detail process in case of e.g. an accident, force majeure, economic forces beyond your control?

    Surly many of us here truly appreciate your answer to this question.

    Anyway, congratulations. Excellent development.

    Warm regards,

    Good day to you esteemed Mr Sergio Focardi , Mr Andrea Rossi ,

    I need such an device for my drying wood chambers who need to be heated . I am producing passive wooden houses with integrated sistems for heat recuperation and during the winter we must rise the level of fresh air temperature pomped to the house .Outside the air has -20 celsius and we need your device for it . Any ideea about costs ? I would be interrested to integrate your product in some devices who actually consume a lot of electricity . Any ideea about becoming your reseller/partner ? Thanks and best regards ,

    Cristian Ioan .

  • Dear Mr. Rossi,
    When it would be possible to present your device running for longer time? Like a few days?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Mark:
    It is not possible, because this patent is still non disclosed to the public.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Mark

    Dear Mr. Rossi, in a previous post you said that there is a specific patent for the catalyzers.
    I searched the patent in the “WIPO” site but I wasn’t able to find it. I found only the patent WO/2009/125444 already referenced in your site. Would be possible for you to tell us the patent number of the catalyzers patent ?

    Thank you,

    Kind regards

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Gediminas:
    I do not think so, also because Nickel is very common, easy to mine and cheap to refine.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • Gediminas

    Dear Sirs

    If You claim that produce 1 kw/h costs about 1 cnt and main fuel is nickel and for comparison to produce 1 kw/h from wind power cost about 5 cnt , it is possible that in near future nickel price will increase at least 4 times and Your project will not be so competitive ?

    Best wishes and success for project !
    and ready to buy from 20 kw to 1 MW device for our factory need :)

    Dear Mr Henk Bakker:
    What is necessary every 6 mo is a periodic maintainance, made by an expert. The reasons are comparable to the necessity of regular maintainance in any kind of heating system, also connected with safety devices control. We also have to check catalizers.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Joseph Fine

    Henk

    My guess is the catalyst has to be replaced, or physically reprocessed.

  • Henk Bakker

    If hardly any Ni is consumed, and the reaction does not depend on a specific and rare isotope of Ni, and the resultant Cu does not significantly pollute the Ni, what exactly needs replacing after 6 months and why?

  • Engineer Rossi:

    I suggest you look at these two papers.

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

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

    Without betraying too much of my background, let us just say that I’ve been paid professionally $150K per year for contract work relating to the effects of ambient radiation (nuclear) sources on complex (LSI, custom computational devices, medical or avionic) devices.

    In one case, calculations of 54 bit error on 300 devices run for 6 months was matched by 52 observed bit errors.

    I’d say my knowledge of the sources of environmental ionizing radiation are “par excellence”.

    Please note that Oriani used polarized light and calculated the “source point” for the “burst” shown in his paper as about 1.7 CM away from the CR-39. (Giving a total burst of >150,000 particles.

    Since we can assume about 4 MeV energy (tracks same depth as Th or U Alpha tracks, we’d have something putting out 1000 GeV of energy at one time.

    NO KNOWN SOURCE OF THAT ENERGY LEVEL FROM ANY NUCLEAR REACTION.

    Now there is therefore evidence of something “extraordinary” in these systems.

    If one were repeating such reactions continuously there would only need to be 10^7 per second to give one watt. Your device would only need 10^10 per second to do 10KW.

    As a comparison with Hydrogen fusion, needing 10^16 reactions per second for one watt, this would mean 1 million times the power density.

    Thus whereas one gram of D2 fused gives about 1000 gallons gasoline equivalent, this would mean one microgram of “whatever” would supply the equivalent of the 1000 gallons of gas (which would run your 10KW device for a few months.

    THUS you’d have a hard time tracing reaction products unless you can find the showers of alpha or the like on some detecting material.

    Interesting to say the least.

  • DEFKALION Energy Group

    On behalf of Defkalion, we wοuld like to clarify the following:

    The full name of Defkalion comapny is: Defkalion Green Technologies S.A. registered in Athens Greece.

    A photovoltaic comapny by the name Defkalion has no connection with us nor do they know anything on this technology.

  • Dear Dr. Rossi,

    The amount of heat your Rossi Energy Amplifier can produce is impressive indeed.
    Did you know at the level of 750C (if you can maintain it) you can replace natural gas
    as the fuel source in currently available micro-turbine electric generators?

    Here’s some information on the WhisperGen Sterling Engine
    power generator. It requires 750 C heat source input versus
    1500 C for the USA Capstone microturbine unit.

    The WhisperGen™ is a co-generation (heat and power) system based on a
    small four cylinder Stirling engine.

    The WhisperGen™, first released commercially in 1998, produces hot
    water suitable for water or space heating and electrical power through
    an innovative system known as the Wobble Yoke, which drives a
    generator.

    The heat to the engine is provided by a single point burner. This
    burner, developed by Whisper Tech™ specifically for the WhisperGen™,
    allows different models to operate on a variety of fuels including
    diesel, kerosene, natural gas or LPG.

    Dear Mr George M Hebbard PE:
    Putting in series the reactors ( remember that we always use 10 kW modules connected in series and parallels, to avoid to scale up the reactors remaining in the total safety well known area) we can reach up to 500-550 °C.
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  • George M Hebbard PE

    Thank you for your continued patient, polite answers to our queries.

    Since the maximum efficiency of a heat engine is defined by the ratio of the absolute temperatures of the Source divided by the Sink, it is of interest what maximum temperature your devices produce. Without divulging confidential information, what is a logical Maximum Operating Temperature, and does an Over-temperature Excursion (loss of heat removal) cause irreparable damage?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Charles Richer:
    We are working on that. Probably we will make a publication about this important issue.
    Warm regards,

    Salutations and again congratulations.
    Can you publish a list of the gamma radiation observed emanating from the nickel powder.
    It sounds that you have an amazing engineering challenge in front of you.

    I am planning a new heating system for my greenhouse plant.
    Do you have any ideas of how long time it can take to launch a commercial product?
    Will this system be more suitable for heating or producing electricity?

    Answer to “Aurora”:
    The cost to produce the catalyzer is 1 cent per MWh generayed; the life expectancy is 20 years; the cost impact is between 1 and 1.5 cents per MWh
    Warm regards,

  • aurora

    Dear ing. Rossi,
    the results you obtained are really amazing.
    I have only one doubt. What is the energetic cost of producing the “catalyzer material” and what is its life expectancy? In other words, how much can the production of this material impact of the total energy cost?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Mr Luca Marchini,
    We made a specific patent for the catalyzers.
    Our patent system is quite complex.

    The Energetic Vacuum: Implications For Energy Research
    by H.E. Puthoff, PhD
    “As an interesting aside, in my conversation with Dr. Puthoff recently, he believed that anomalous heat generation observed in several “cold fusion” experiments was not fusion, rather it was vacuum energy extraction (either net energy extraction from vacuum energy “excess”, or vacuum energy charging and later extraction similar to a battery). This could explain why any anomalous heat generation was not accompanied by a neutron and radiation signature indicating nuclear fusion. ..”

    Dear Mr Mark Hugo:
    Thank you for this question, very important: the volume of the reactor, taken off the insulation and the shielding, is 1 liter.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Power to the People!!! Good luck to the People of Egypt…someone in Africa has to set an example. These corrupt Leaders take us for granted.

  • “By the way: do you know the volume and weight of a battery able to deliver 10 kWh in 45 minutes?”

    A standard automobile battery can deliver a Kilowatt for about 3 minutes. 10 Kilowatts would take 10 standard automobile batteries.

    45 minutes would take 9 times that. Or 90 standard automobile batteries. About two batteries per cubic foot, or 45 cubic feet, or a volume about one meter by one meter by one meter.

    Was the Rossi device that BIG?

    M.H.

  • Luca

    Dear Ing. Rossi,
    I read the patent concerning your device – (WO/2009/125444) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CARRYING OUT NICKEL AND HYDROGEN EXOTHERMAL REACTIONS.
    In the patent are mentioned nickel, hydrogen and an unspecified “catalyzer material”.
    Now it seems clear that the catalyzer is a key element, otherwise it would be really easy for anybody to reproduce this process, that going by the patent is quite simple.
    I can’t imagine how it is possible to patent a process where a key element is unspecified.
    I mean that even if the patent request will be accepted, I do not think it will protect your invention.
    Imagine that a person that will succesfully reproduce your process, identifing the correct “catalyzer” to be used. This person could claim that the substance he uses as “catalyzer” is an his own discover, and he could also patent it, given that in your patent it is not specified what it is.
    Really puzzling, at least for me…
    Best wishes, Luca
