Andrea Rossi – Leonardo Corp. (USA) – Inventor of the Patent


A process (international patent publication n° WO 2009/125444 A1) capable of producing large amounts of energy by a nuclear fusion process between nickel and hidrogen, occurring below 1000 K, is described. Experimental values of the ratios between output and input energies obtained in a certain number of experiments are reported. The occurrence of the effect is justified on the basis of existing experimental and theoretical results. Measurements performed during the experiments allow to exclude neutron and gamma rays emissions.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can you confirm that all is written on
    is true ?

  • Andrea Rossi

  • Nancy

    Dr Rossi,
    Which is the percentage of probability that you will achieve success with the direct production of electricity from the plasma of the Ecat SK we saw in http://www.ecatskdemo.com ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Roger Sokolsky:
    Theoretically yes.
    Warm Regards,

  • Roger Sokolsky

    Dr Rossi,
    Do you think that the Ecat SK, producing directly electric energy, will be able to supply also the energy to power itself?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Thank you for your attention to the work of our Team!
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I think that your paper
    combined with the video
    are among the most important publications of the last years, both for the LENR and for the Physics in general.
    Best Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Yes, the signature 437.2 nm is very important to give evidence of the theoretical principle in par. 4 of my paper.
    As for the video on Youtube and Vimeo
    we are making it more easy to watch. The job is on course, should finish tomorrow.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I noticed that the enlarged photo of the spectrometer shown from you during the presentation on January 31st is the signature at 437.2 nm that gives evidence of the validity of your theory in paragraph 4 of your paper published on January 24th on Researchgate.
    By the way: I noticed that the presentation now on youtube and vimeo http://www.ecatskdemo.com has been upgraded: very nice!

  • Andrea Rossi

    Thank you! The update, anyway, is good, I am in contact with the factory through my cell phone. The update for my health is that next week I will be back in the factory and with my Attorneys, the health issues will have to be addressed. At the end I will win also this battle.
    Warm Regards,

  • JPR

    Dear Dr Rossi: now I ask the update from you for your health: it is important for all of us, without you the LENR today would be what they were before you: nothing at work.
    We all prey for you

  • Andrea Rossi

    Yes, it is a masterpiece.

    Dear Andrea:
    Did you see the movie “Hidden Figures”?
    If yes, what do you think about it?

    J’ai élaboré une théorie très simple (niveau bac+2 maxi) qui explique bien mieux les phénomènes les plus courants de la physique.
    Par exemple, le fait que la lumière réfracte sur un dioptre, c’est-à-dire change de direction d’autant plus qu’elle est rasante, est dû au fait que ma lumière, bien que satisfaisant aux équations de Maxwell, n’est pas une particule élémentaire, mais un assemblage en forme de tore et a une surface, un maitre couple, qui s’immerge progressivement dans le nouveau milieu, d’où le basculement.
    Avec ces photons en colliers, je dessine facilement un électron qui ressemble alors à une sorte de roulement à billes et j’ai une compréhension des forces électriques et magnétiques. J’illustre le spin de l’électron et découvre la force fondamentale de l’univers : le parallélisme des rotations qui permet au photon de réfracter sans se briser.
    En poursuivant l’empilement, je dessine des sortes de longs vilebrequins. Arrivés à une certaine taille, ces milliers d’empilements peuvent se boucler sur eux-mêmes, en intercalant un électron et en cachant ainsi leur charge. Ils peuvent alors coexister dans les noyaux les plus lourds…
    Cette forme peut justifier de s’affranchir de la force coulombienne et donne le mode d’emploi d’une fusion froide ?
    Ma théorie tient en 17 pages qui devraient vous intéresser

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    First of all, I would like to thank you for your last reply. Congratulations on your 600-degree version of the E-cat! I have some questions about this product.

    1.) Does this version also run half a year on 1 fuel cell?

    2.) How big is the fuel cell for this version?

    3.) Are there any mechanical parts inside the E-cat?

    4.) Will the temperature be controllable?

    5.) Will the amount of steam be controllable?

    Thank you very much for your time.
    I wish you all the best and support

    Dear Gediminas:
    We are close to deliver a 1 MW plant to an European Customer.
    We will give information about this plant when it will be in operation at least for some month, not before. We want not to be disturbed, as well as our Customer, from meaningless noise until the operation is well consolidated. As you have seen , we are not reacting to all the stupidities said in the hostile blogs and in the blogs of the wannabe competitors: they talk, we work. But we need to work in peace.
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Andrea Rossi,
    According news from ecat com 1 mw plant will start energy production in Europe customer site in July . Dear Andrea , will it realy hapenz next month !?!?! Could You tell us more about this plant place and customer ? Will it start in planed time or will be some delays ? Is it possible to contact customer and buy tickets to see this reactor in motion ? I’m ready to get some free days from work and go and see by myself working E-cat here in Europe. It is much better one time to see than one thousand time to hear about E-cat !

    Good luck,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Burkhard Kiehne:
    1- yes
    2- no
    3- improvement must be permanent
    4- Because this size is very well controlled: why are houses made by same size bricks?
    5- no
    6- NASA yes, is a competitor of us and I did not get information from them ( the contrary is true: they applied for a patent which in part copies my patent application). CERN and SPAWAR are not our competitor. I learnt from SPAWAR and from scientists who worked in CERN.
    Good luck to your Blog and greetings to your Readers!
    Warm Regards,

  • Burkhard Kiehne

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    My name is Burkhard Kiehne and I am writing (for Madri) the blogs on http://kalte-fusion.com http://kaltefusion.ch and http://kaltefusion.at . As you know, those blogs are intended to promote your E-cat and its system. The articles rank very high (number 1 on Google). At this time I would kindly ask you for some input by yourself and I put some questions together. If I could receive some short answers from you with the permission to use those for the articles, I think the readers will be extremely delighted. May I ask you:
    • Is the project still on track (delivery of the first E-cats end of this year)?
    • If there are difficulties, do they concern the system or the production?
    • Do you believe that the first E-cats will provide the optimal output or will you still research to improve the efficiency?
    • Why does the E-cat always have the same size? More powerful units (like the 1 MW unit) consist of more E-cats instead of one larger unit, why?
    • Are you planning of supplying also the turbines and generators?
    • Do you consider NASA, CERN and SPAWAR as your competition or are you able to gain from them?
    For any comment I truly thank you in advance and wish you all the best!

    Sincerely yours,

    Burkhard Kiehne

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear John Tobey:
    I agree.
    Warm regards,

  • Thank you for repeating the answer once more. Indeed, I have a lot to read.

    So, as I understand, either you enrich the Ni to remove the 58 (I thought you denied this in another comment) or you have a method that results in only the 62 and 64 reacting in natural nickel. Marvellous! Yes, I know, I must await the patent issuance for details.

    I now turn my attention to why escaping gamma rays are not detected. Don’t tell me, I’m sure it’s been discussed in here somewhere, and a measurement trumps a theory anyway.


  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear John Tobey:
    You missed all the explication I gave many times regarding the Ni in our E-Cat, and I cannot repeat many times the same thing. In our process only Ni 62 and 64 react, and therefore out nickel powder is enrched consequently.More info than this I cannot give, because I cannot give information regarding what happens inside the reactor. I can confirm, though, that all the measurements made be experts have evidenced that we do not have radioactive residuals when the E-Cat is turned off.
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Mr. Rossi:
    Thank you very much for publishing this information!

    You have mentioned the lack of detected radiation OUTSIDE the reactor. This is good news, but what is inside will eventually come out. A look at the isotope table shows Nickel-59, a beta+ emitter with a 76,000-year half-life. If your theory is correct, I expect the E-Cat to produce 59Ni via 58Ni(68% abundance) + 1H -> 59Cu -> 59Ni.

    1. Does the E-Cat produce 59Ni or another long-lived radionuclide in appreciable quantities?
    2. Is not the inevitable leakage of such material a threat to the environment and a subject worthy of regulation?
    3. Once your company starts to receive 6-month-old fuel modules, what will you do with the 59Ni?

    Best regards,

  • Mr. Rossi,

    Suffice it to say that Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi have joined the ranks of Galileo, Tesla, Edison, the Wright brothers, and the rest of the immortals…too many to count and give credit to for their lasting contribution to mankind.

    I, and speaking on behalf of the entire team at Virtual Organization Management Institute, would be very honored to have you as a member of VOMI Global Think Tank and Advisory Board.

    Dear Jacopo Toja:
    We are on schedule with all our work.
    Thank you for your kind attention,
    Warm Regards,

  • Gentilissimo Sig. Rossi
    La ringrazio fortemente per le sue rassicuranti parole e ne gioisco. Mi permetta due osservazioni semantiche.
    Perchè chiude con “credo”? Non ha già più in mano il controllo della situazione? Una delle cose che il mio maestro delle elementari mi ha spiegato con indelebile chiarezza è di questionare l’uso di “certi” e in questo caso “giusti tempi”, sono parole troppo libere di interpretazione che riferendosi al criterio di giustizia hanno(dovrebbero avere) punti di riferimento. Può quantificare “giusti tempi”? E mi scusi se la sollecito alla fretta ma ogni giorno che passa è un giorno perso.
    E’ troppo l’entusiasmo e la speranza in una nuova era che il suo trovato ha generato in me.
    Mi piacerebbe inoltre sentire il suo personale parere riguardo alle implicazioni politiche del suo trovato.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Caro Jacopo Toja:
    L’evoluzione del prodotto andrà nei giusti tempi verso la direzione indicata da Lei, credo.
    Cordiali saluti,

  • Gentile Sig Rossi
    cos’è più importante? La ricchezza, la fama o l’aver fatto la cosa più giusta eticamente?
    Ho letto, con il beneficio del dubbio, che per motivi di patentabilità non sarà disponibile una unità per uso individuale fino a quando non avrete studiato un sistema di autodistruzione. Non capisco il motivo di questa assurdità. Lei e i suoi soci sarete ricchissimi, lei sarà famosissimo se (d’obbligo) la sua invenzione funziona.
    Ma è il modello industriale che non mi sembra logico. La domanda principale è, come produco questa invenzione nella maniera più economica possibile e la vendo ad un ricarico tale che non diventa economicamente valido per una seconda entità produrla?
    Quindi oltre ad essere ricchissimo, famosissimo, lei sarà anche giustissimo nei confronti dell’intera umanità, nel senso che farà la cosa giusta.

    Un caro saluto

    Dear John Sergovich:
    We are not going in the short term to sell small portable models, we will start with 1 MW plants.
    Warm Regards,

  • John Sergovich

    Dear Mr. Rossi,

    Your invention does look very promising. Now, instead of putting food in a microwave oven, we can “nuke it”:)
    It is hard to imagine any useful electrical power from it though. Who would have thought that the world’s first commercial fusion reactors would be used to boil water?
    I suspect that if the reaction will sustain itself at 500C then lots of people will still want one. It would also be more useful if the portable modules used a cheaper and more portable fuel such as propane to kick-start the reaction. If modules can be placed entirely off-grid then all the better.

    Good luck with your business!

    Dear Mr. Rossi. Congratulations on your incredible discovery and thank you for the years of effort that must have been invested in making it happen.

    I have worked with a large indigenous rain forest Indian population in Panama for the past 10 years. These very poor people can now have clean water and sanitation available using a green energy source like the E-Cat. The possibilities of helping those less fortunate and preserving what is left of our planets forests using your invention are unlimited!

    I look forward to all people having a better quality of life using your technology.

    Thank you once again and best wishes to you and yours in the future.

    Thank you very much for your comment. Please contact us in November for the commercial issues.

    Hello Mr Rossi,

    As I write this, here in Australia as in many parts of the world politicians are debating the introduction of a carbon tax whilst they have also have reduced incentives for households to purchase solar panels. They are also talking about subsidising the coal industry which is burnt here to generate power for the most part. Things desperately need to change and the e-cat seems to be the best way presently known to generate emission free energy. I assume its construction would have a carbon footprint far smaller than than of solar panels generating equivalent power output.

    The work you and your colleagues have done here is paradigm shifting and the e-cat is an idea whose time has come. I and a few friends here in Australia would very much like to buy an e-cat when they become available. I was wondering whether you had a distributor in Australia as yet lined up? If not, I would be more than happy to assist in its introduction here in whatever way possible.

    Of the many things I wish to achieve in my life, making a difference is one. I can think of no worthier cause than working with new technology such as this that can positively impact humanity and the environment in a multitude of ways.

    If there is anything that I can do here to assist feel free to forward my details to the relevant contacts.

    Regards and best wishes,

    Adam Parnis

    Dear Mr Mario Ricci,
    Yes, we write here in English because the 95% of our Readers speaks English.
    I confirm: who is interested to commercial issues is kindly invited to contact us in November, after the start up of the 1 MW plant in Greece.
    Warm Regards,

  • Good afternoon Mr Rossi,
    I’m personally quite conversant with English to be able to evaluate positively the paper “A new Energy Source from Nuclear Fusion” by Focardi and Rossi.
    To better explain things to my Italian friends I’ve been looking for a ready-made Italian translation to no avail.
    Does it exist somewhere?
    Wishing you the best in your enterprise (expected to benefit all)
    Best regards
    Mario Ricci

  • I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.
