    Giuseppe:
    The commercial units will have all the necessary characteristics not to explode.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea,
    just for curiosity: if a Quark melt or explode and it is very near to a second Quark where the safety system switched off the input power, can this second Quark explode?
    Best Regards, Giuseppe

    I have had all but the Noah’s Ark occur at once, bad day indeed. I live in Southeastern USA. I almost have the animals for the Ark. Love your since of humor, without it we all would go insane in this crazy world. Thank you Sebastian for clarifying my question. Good luck Andrea, and may God bless.

    Salve Andrea. Scrivo dall’ Italia. Per caso sono andato a leggere delle energie alternative, e ho trovato una risposta ideale, la e-cat.
    Complimenti per enorme lavoro.non ho approfondito ancora molto, ma volevo capire se le l’impianto per casa e già elaborato, funzionante ed è in vendita. Grazie mille.
    Complimenti ancora.

    Is ready the domestic E-Cat ?
    Congratulation for your work.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For years (I think) you have been saying that the output of an eCat cannot (ever) be used as the input to the same eCat reactor, citing safety concerns.

    Yet you do run an eCat off the local electricity grid, which at least theoretically, the eCat reactor could provide power to that grid. The saving grace is the immense capacity of that electgricity grid, so it can absorb any short term power fluctuations generated by the eCat.

    This could be modeled as an RC network performing as a low-pass filter. The resistance is the related to the amount of power being generated. C is the capacitance of the energy storage device. Batteries have been used for years as both energy storage devices and as transient suppressors. So given a large enough battery, it should be possible to power an eCat from a battery and use the eCat to power the battery with sufficient protective circuitry between the eCat output and the eCat input. OR AM I MISSING SOMETHING MORE FUNDAMENTAL TO THE ECAT THEORY OF OPERATION?

    For agricultural uses, many companies make quantum dots that convert blue light into the red spectrum required for plants. Most companies use toxic cadmium for this purpose. This company has a cadmium free plastic film with quantum dots specifically tailored for agriculture: http://www.nanocotechnologies.com/what-we-do/products/cfqd-quantum-dot-films . Combining this film with the QuarkX light could create a single light/heat source for indoor agriculture.

    Sebastian:
    Obviously with John Atkinson I was joking.
    Surely a back up generator resolves the problem.
    The answer is yes to the questions 1 2 3 4.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I think John Atkinson had an interesting question. Where I live, power goes down very frequently, sometimes for days.

    1) If you’re running a quark, and the power goes down, will it just turn off safely?

    2) If power is out for a few days, can you run a quark on back up generator?

    3) can you run it on a backup battery system safely?

    4) If yes to 3, can you use the same Quark to charge the battery it is running on?

    5) If no to 4, can you run a quark on battery, use it to charge a second battery, and switch batteries when needed?

    Thanks!

  • Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    If the E-Cat doesn’w work, the grid is down, snow storm, lightning, tree limbs, Noah’s Ark sinking, generator without fuel…that’s not your lucky day.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • John Atkinson

    What would happen if the QuartX lost its power source, grid was down, snow storm, lightning, tree limbs during operation? Would a back up generator suffice. Thank you and your team for all your work and perseverance. God bless you all and keep you safe.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Given the reputation of the Source of Inspiration and Energy, we expect profound harmony between different systems between which we previously could not suspect any connection.

    When you come home with a pot of flowers – grown under your lamp – your wife will perhaps even let you win a game of tennis.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Let’s walk on solid ground and, for now, make basic experiments on the specific field, then see what happens. This branch of R&D is very interesting, this is a fact.

    Giannino Lodovico Ferro Casagrande:
    The QuarkX is not a substitute of the former E-Cat: it is another product. I can’t abswer to technical related details, so far. Verification activity is on course.
    Still many problems have to be resolved.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Giannino Lodovico Ferro Casagrande

    Caro Andrea ho cercato di immaginare del perché Tu abbia scelto di modificare il più che collaudato E-CAT con uno ( E-CAT – QUARK _ X ) di così modeste dimensioni ma non mi so dare una risposta . Ora Ti pregherei , se è possibile , di dirmi pure di che spessore è il contenitore ( “ DI UN MATERIALE ADEGUATO ? “ ) “ QUARK_X “ dato che fuori tutto la grossezza è di un millimetro ! Il tubicino avrà pure uno spessore per poter contenere H2 + Nichel + qualcosa altro !
    Ringrazio infinitamente per una qualche risposta !!! Giannino da Udin ;-))

  • Engineer48

    Dear Andrea,

    Is a battery operated QuarkX reactor a possibility? If so what a wonderful application to provide heat, light and electrical power in remote locations or where a disaster has occurred and normal services are not available.

    Appreciate all your great replies.

  • Luis Navarro

    Dear Andrea,
    I have read with interest the comments by Sebastian, and your interest in the answer, regarding the heating and lighting of greenhouses in northern latitudes for the production of fresh fruit & vegetables. The worlds leaders in greenhouse technology and production for fresh fruit & vegetables are the Dutch. They are the worldwide leaders and export their technology throughout the world. I am sure you will find them very receptive to any suggestions for heating and lighting as it would make them number 1 in the world in exports 12 months of the year, at present they are limited by the expense, though subsidized, heating and lighting in the winter months.
    Best regards
    Luis

  • Koen Vandewalle

    @Sebastian,

    imagine that the spectrum of the blue light is appropriate for plants. Then life, as we know it, does not depend on sunlight in the universe.

    Andrea, you can do a preliminary test in a few days to weeks. Do you want to do that ? Or did you test it already ? (Few months ago you wrote that you watched the movie “the martian”. QuarkX, could have a role in the remake 😉

    This is far more important than electric cars, house heating etc… Even in the desert, plants could be grown underground or indoors, when outdoors conditions are not fit to grow plants.

    Living Regards,
    Koen

  • Dear Andrea Rossi, I admire your work – but, don´t develop endlessly. Focus at least for some month on sales and production of the 1-MW – Plant. Your trustful follower W. Meinders, fehnblog.de

  • Aka

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    From what I read the QuarkX test recently performed consist of a reactor with 30mm x 1mm dimension.
    Can you tell whether this is hollow cylinder filled with fuel or is it a solid cylinder?
    Thanks,
    Aka

  • Physicist

    Dear Andrea:
    You are right: the blue light of the photo of the quarkx is a theoretical clue and also is evidence of the immensity of your discovery. When you will disclose it everybody will understand.
    Congratulations,
    Physicist

  • Sebastian

    Andrea,

    According to the examples in this link:

    http://www.cps.gov.on.ca/english/plans/E6000/6701/M-6701L.pdf

    Heating needs for a 360 m2 greenhouse are 10 to 15W per (m2 * deltaT)

    So assuming a max deltaT of 50 degrees, you would go with a 200 or 300kW unit for a 360m2 greenhouse.

    That’s if you want to grow tomatoes/cucumbers most of the year at 15 degrees C + and temperatures drop to -35. So it’s more of an upper bound, as deltaT will typically be smaller.

    Canada has 14 million m2 of commercial vegetable greenhouses. They mostly use natural gas. I’d bet that surface would grow if heating was cheaper.

    In a small greenhouse, I could do a lot more if I had 5 kW of cheap heat. Right now it seems wasteful to use fossil fuels to do so.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sebastian:
    Now, this is a very interesting application.
    Can you give me numbers ?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Sebastian

    Dear Andrea,

    I believe light and heat will be useful to grow food in heated greenhouses in northern regions.

    I hope to be the first customer to install a Quark in a small hoophouse. My community imports more than 80% of its produce from far away; hopefully with your help we will be able to change that.

    Now get back to work! :)

    Don:
    It’s not a typo, it’s because I can count only up to three: as a consequence of this fact, I count as follows: ” one, two, three, three, three, …etc to the infinite. By the way: maybe it’s sustainable philosophically on the base that 3 is the perfect number, therefore it contains the Infinite.

    Andrea have you given any thought to using neural networks to correlate learning process into control system design? For one you could use acoustic probes like in Tesla self driving cars Now? They learn as one drives more & get better with time. I like your use of the stethoscope to tell how your E- Cats are progressing or staying away from thermal failure I presume?

    Just a few thoughts to see what your ideas in this area have been !

    Shortly before I retired many moons ago I was impressed with the neural networks ability to learn & mimic nonlinear systems & tried to use them in control & protection systems but that was long ago!

    Elon Musk uses them now I presume in his self driving vehicles which I have looked at in his local sales shops now where I live!

    Just curious! Your friend & long ally Jim

    PS Congradulation to you & team on the newest E Cat Quark X! I like specs you were able to share!

  • eernie1

    Dear Andrea,
    when can we expect more information about your future plans for the devices under development? Can you give us a possible approximate date for production? Where will they be produced? How much time will be necessary for the devices to be received after ordering? And most important, when can we expect more information about the science and technology of the devices?
    Inquisitive regards.

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    congratulations for the huge results with the QuarkX, the incredibile small dimension, the extremely high temperature of the surface, and the large amount of light produced, make me even more convinced that the site of the “miracle” of the reaction be the external, like if something from the environment reacts with it, I do not believe that this “something” be necessarily present in the environment, but it could resonate from somewhere, for instance another dimension.
    Let me do some dreams, after so long time on this blog without lose never a post.
    Crazy? The starship Enterprise generator works in the same manner from decades eh eh.

    Best regards
    Alessandro Coppi

  • Don

    Dear Andrea:
    In your answer to LookMoo you put twice the point # 3: why ? Is it a typo?
    Cheers,
    Don

  • Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I am not specialized in optics, but a programmer, specialized in security printing, and I have been keeping
    an eye on interesting discoveries, that’s how I found about your work (BTW, congratulations for the last test) in 2011.
    About the “lighting device”, I believe that a torchlight that would last “forever” could be an interesting product
    using a QuarkX inside, and would sell like hot cakes to certain professionals.
    Such a torchlight would need to get rid of the extra heat, that can’t be converted to visible light,
    and the electricity generated should probably be enough to drive a small fan.

    Best Regards,
    Ovidiu Herlea

    Dear Andrea,

    Please pass my congratulations and praise on to your team for me, would you?
    Does the 0.5 Wh/h drive power still need 240v three phase power to run the QuarkX?

    Thank you,

    LookMoo:
    New secretary.
    (he,he,he)
    To be serious now and again:
    1- it is true, the little Leonardo has made an enormous mole of work in a relatively short time and with a very limited budget: we got COPs in 5 years that in classic hot fusion have not been achieved in 50 years and spending fifty billions or more. The secret? Work like beasts, without limitations, with high risks, never giving up and, if you allow me, also a particular skill.
    2- about my English: I love English and do my best to improve it, even if for me it is very frustrating when most taxists, after I explain them where I have to go in the particulars, most times answer “you are Italian, aren’t you?” So long for my correct pronunciation endeavours.
    3- In Leonardo we are not many persons, but I choose very top level guys: one Messi is better that 100 normal players.
    3- for the massive production we will have all the necessary personnel and our business plan has been studied in the particulars. An enormous work is waiting for us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    In order to increase the amount of light output of a lighting device that uses the QuarkX, it may be possible to use
    a material that emits broadband visible light when exposed to infrared radiation. Such a material has recently been found,
    and it may be worth for you to contact those who developed it (it still needs work, but seems promising). Link to article:
    http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/news/2016/jun/13/lasers-transform-infrared-into-broadband-white-light

    Normally, Its not possible for a small company like Leonardo Corp. to alone develope this kind of advanced products at this speed (and several version of them) as it requires thousands of engineering hours. Besides accessories like rubber-hammers (my remark :-) you have said that the control system is imperative for success).

    During the last 6 months you have moved faster than you did the previous 5 year period. Your English have gone through a similar development.

    So, Rossi.. what is the secret??? hidden partners?? new secretary??
