  • Dear Dr. Rossi,

    The tools you use to produce a precision 1 mm diameter by 3 cm complex device is beyond my imagination. Are these tools more related to surgery or advanced metallurgy?

    I wish that the availability of precision tools can keep up with your laser-like imagination.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Obviously it was a typo.
    Carbon Dioxide is what I meant.
    Thank you for the correction!

  • Joseph Fine

    Andrea Rossi, Alena Vitantonio,

    I have been wrong before, but I believe A.R. meant greenhouse gases such as Carbon Dioxide or Methane, not Carbon Hydroxide.

    Alena Vitantonio:
    Algae are an immense biological patrimony under the sea. The technology to turn them into biofuel ( biodiesel) is ready ( esterification with methanol ). I think algae will become an important energy source. By the way, the biofuel made by algae does not impact the global warming because they just recycle the carbon dioxide that already exists.

    Pietro F.:
    That is because our product is not yet ready for a massive market, needs more R&D to arrive to that level. Our industrial 1 MW plants are still destined to the so called “pioneer customers”, which means customers that are aware that the product could have problems and are open to tolerate any unforeseen problem that could emerge.

    Buongiorno dott. Rossi,

    Mi perdoni la domanda polemica.
    Stamattina dopo aver letto dell’ennesima dimostrazione fatta presso un organizzazione terza (DARPA), mi sono chiesto come sia possibile che una tale invenzione dopo essere stata presentata (negli ultimi sette anni) all’ENEL, DARPA, UNIBO, Militari ecc., non sia ancora diventata una fonte energetica riconosciuta e affidabile.
    grazie e buon lavoro.
    ENGLISH
    Why your invention, after all the tests you made with top level third parties is not yet recognized as a reliable source of energy ?

  • Kris Giambattista

    Robert, Andrea:
    I agree with you, this story of a nuclear engineer expert of nuclear power plants that is lectured by bloggers how to to place correctly a flowmeter, an operation that any plumber is able to do, is simply ridiculous.
    Kris

  • Alena Vitantonio

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    What do you think of algae as a possible energy source ?
    Thaqnk you,
    Alena

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you consider the E-Cat a product mature to be massively sold in the market ?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Engineer48:
    I cannot give in positive or in negative any information related to issues that have to be disclosed in Court with all the necessary evidence. As correctly wrote our Reader Robert earlier today, though, everybody can answer if it is credible that a nuclear engineer, experienced working in a nuclear power plant, needs that a blogger explains to him how to install a flowmeter correctly on the base of knowledge pretty well known from any good plumber.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Robert:
    I agree, but all the evidence that will be presented in Court will clear everything. I cannot anticipate issues that must be disclosed in Court.

    Lara:
    Yes, is a book solid technically and very well documented.

  • Lara

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I received as a gift the book ‘An impossible invention’ of Mats Lewan: is one of the best books I have read in the last 10 years.
    Cheers,
    Lara

  • Robert

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    There are discussions about the position of the flowmeter, and persons without basic education in engineering have discovered that a flowmeter must be installed below the level of the source of the flow and of the destination of the flow, to avoid that the flowmeter go into a cavitation mode. This thing is well known from any plumber. Now, as you have repeatedly explained, the ERV is a nuclear engineer with a doctorate obtained with 110/110 summa cum laude and with experience of work as a nuclear engineer in a nuclear power plant: is there somebody enough stupid to think that such a nuclear engineer needs to learn from a blogger how to place a water flowmeter ? How poor considerations are arriving from your foes, Dr Rossi. Good for you.
    Cheers,
    Robert

    Dear Andrea,

    My, My, My,

    Is that a water flow meter I see between the condensate return pipe on the right and the intake pipe to the reactor on the left?
    http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3911/2113/original.jpg

    Can anyone identify the manufacturer and model?

    Mayne a smart unit like this one?

    http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/3911/2584/original.jpg

    Yes I understand you can’t tell us the unit but it is interesting to try to figure it out. Also interesting to note, it is mounted correctly, very low, lower than the inlet pumps to the reactors and the reactor bodies.

    Comments can be posted to the ECW thread here:

    Dear Andrea,

    A few weeks ago, I reviewed many of the original papers written by Focardi and his associates during the period in which the first nickel-hydrogen experiments were being performed. They clearly indicate that in systems utilizing *only* nickel and hydrogen that unwanted emissions can be produced — including neutrons on some occasions. These early reactors were not generating the level of excess heat your reactors can produce and were operating at lower temperatures. If they had been optimized and pushed harder, I can guess that the emissions would have been greater.

    Conversely, Rossi Effect reactors (Energy Catalyzers) can operate at extremely high temperatures and generate ultra high levels of anomalous power without emitting ionizing radiation or neutrons. I can only hypothesize that the use of lithium is not only a factor that dramatically increases output but also blocks/screens/converts harmful emissions. In conversation with an friend of mine, I described how lithium may be like the lubricating engine oil in an car. Without the oil an engine won’t last long at all: friction will tear up components, smoke may billow out, and if the peddle is pressed down hard who knows what might shoot out from under the hood. However, if a proper engine oil is added, the engine can be accelerated to high RPMs, run smoothly, operate quietly, and most importantly not catch the vehicle on fire.

    Interestingly, oil is used in a vehicle — in different forms — to be both a fuel and a lubricant. Lithium seems to serve dual purposes in an E-Cat as well. Today I read how the isotope Li-6 has a high cross section to neutrons while Li-7 has a tremendously smaller cross section. Perhaps any stray, occasional, neutrons produced by an E-Cat react with the lithium vapor that has covered all internal surfaces and are thermalized into additional alpha particles that can harmlessly bounce around giving away their kinetic energy.

    Lithium really seems to be a key component of the Rossi Effect.

    Now for my question. A certain replicator that goes by the name Me356 has claimed to build transparent reactors through which he alleges to observe anomalous phenomenon. He claims to have triggered or activated a sample of hydrogenated nickel powder into producing excess heat on one side of a reactor and witnessed a small sample of lithium on the other side a few centimeters away being remotely stimulated. He goes onto say that the lithium glowed brilliantly and seemed to be impacted by some sort of emissions from the activated nickel.

    Have you ever observed anything similar?

    Sincerely,
    Hank

    Dear Andrea,
    Today, I read your greatest challenge is ‘to make new jobs’. For that you need to produce many Ecat plants. With regards to that I have some questions, if I may:
    1. Do you believe that national restrictions do delay the introduction of LENR products? (E.g. The link to ‘nuclear’)
    2. Do you have already a big enough order confirmed portfolio for the coming years to realize your challenge?
    3. Do you wish your followers to actively search help you to find for suitable customers?
    4. Do you intend to make commercials for your Ecats?
    5. A well confirmed test or operational data of (some) customers will dramatically increase the demand of the Ecat plant. Do you have plans for these tests or providing details and when do you intend to do that?
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea,

    Nice Blue glow from your 2008/2009 Bottle reactor and from the 2016 QuarkX reactor:

    Are the Blue glows in the 2 reactos, 8 years apart, caused by the same effect?

    Dear Andrea,

    Here is a good TED video from your great friend Prof. Focardi, with English subtitles via CC:
    https://youtu.be/eGmgTo2Kw1U

    It that a Blue glow I see radiating from the left side of the reactor in your home in NH? The same Blue glow radiating from the QuarkX reactor?

    Recent emails have surfaced that Tony Tether (then DARPA head) visited you in NH and saw the reactor in your home producing a COP of 25.

    Is this correct and if so, this is just more info to confirm your reactors work as claimed:

    Tony,
     
    Can  you  check  your  records  and  see  if  your  visit  to  Rossi  in  NH  was  on  Nov.  20,  2009 please? 

    See encl., pg. 4

    That’s seems right. 
      
    I  would  really  have  to  dig  to  be  sure  like  find  a  hotel  and  rental  car  receipt  the  month  and year are right. 

    The  experiment  measured  input  electrical  power  (400 watts I believe), the flow rate of water and the temperature rise of the output to the input of the water. 

    There  was  a hydrogen  source  into  the  device  and  the  mass  of  the  hydrogen  was  being measured to make sure that burning the hydrogen was not a source of heat. 

    The experiment went on for hours until we all got tired looking at it. 

    The  input  electrical  energy  to  increased  heat  energy  output  was  25  (may  be  off  a  bit  here but  nothing  that  would  change  the  conclusion)  and  the  fact  that  this  was  true  over  many hours negated that some chemical reaction was the cause. 

    Rossi  refused  to  explain  what  was  going  on  in  the  bottle  and  hinted  to  some  secret  sauce acting as a catalyst but never would give any further details.  

    I  think  the  lack  of  details  was  partially  because  he  really  did  not  understand  why  it  was working but it definitely was working; something non‐chemical was going on in the bottle. 

    Another  explanation  of  his  reluctance  to  give  details  was  that  the  answer  was  so  simple that it could be readily copied.

    When your E-Cat will be produced massively will it be distributed also in Germany ?

    1- Are you working with the QuarkX today ?
    2- If yes, how is it working ?
    3- Are you working in the USA ?
    4- Is it far from reality the guess of Frank Acland that you will focus initially on centralized heating ?

    Andrea,

    I think hell may be freezing over. One early arch-nemesis of yours, Steven Krivit, has posted an email exchange with DARPA former Director, Tony Tether, that discussed the positive results of an early e-cat test that was performed sometime on or before June, 2011. The comments showed that the e-cat operated at approximately a COP of 25 and that Director Tether was fairly convinced that the e-cat operated as stated by you.

    A positive report regarding you on the “New Energy Times” web site, will wonders ever cease!

    Keep up your fine work.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

    Dear Andrea,
    the “JOURNAL OF CONDENSED MATTER NUCLEAR SCIENCE” (VOLUME 19, June 2016) reports the theory of “Electron-mediated Nuclear Reactions (EMNR)” (Formation of the hydronions: extreme ultraviolet emissions). Can you give us your opinion?

    Dear Andrea,
    At the site Ecat.com I found a link to one of your first publications. (https://espace.cern.ch/test-vila/WP4/Documents/A%2520new%2520energy%2520source%2520from%2520nuclear%2520fusion%2520Rossi-Focardi_paper.pdf)
    In that document there is no mention of Lithium used although very high COP’s are reported. The theory in that report just assumes reactions between Ni and H. Now we know (or assume) lithium is the reactant that generates most of the released energy (as I found in later documents at this site). I am just curious: Didn’t you really use any lithium in the ‘secret cathalyser’ at that time?
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard
