    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    For natural gas furnaces we measure and record the gas therm input and pay the gas bill according to the number of input therms used. For propane gas usage we pay by the gallon. For oil furnaces we measure the fuel in gallons and pay for the heat used.

    For electrical heating needs we measure and record the input energy in kilowatt hours and pay the electric bill.

    Will the E-Cats have a way of measuring and recording the heat output for control and billing purposes?
    Best regards,

    Hugh DeVries

    Dear Andrea,
    update?

  • Albret Ellul

    Dear Ing. Rossi,

    Assuming that F9 turns to F1, (total success = the Formula one of energy), would you produce one home heater as a space heater and another one for hot water or would such requirements for the domestic e-Cat unit be combined into one single heater?

    Can one unit be designed in combination with an absorption refrigeration system for air-conditioning units?

    Thanks for your hard work. May you succeed in your great venture.

    Andrea,
    you just commented that the E-CatX resist with the new material.
    Is it a matter of temperature?
    Grazie, Giuseppe

    Dr Rossi:
    1- It seems that MIT and Broullin-Godes have joined their forces to compete against you: are you worried?
    2- Behind them there is an unvisible backer that could be very surprising for you: comments?

    Caro Dr Rossi:
    Can we know the nature of the new materials you are using in the E-Cat X’?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:

    The 1 MW E-Cat has a problem that we are repairing. The E-Cat X is operating well, still very promising. The new materials resist.
    Warm Regards,

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Could you provide an update on how the 1MW plant is doing? E-Cat X also?

    Many thanks,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    A version of this article (See links below) was sent to me by Frank Acland. (Thanks, Frank.)

    (Phys.org)—A team of researchers with The University of Tokyo and Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute has created a type of glass that is stronger than many metals. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers describe how they overcame one of the major hurdles in creating glass imbued with extra amounts of an oxide of aluminum, by using what they call aerodynamic levitation.

    Similar articles are on many Internet sites especially on the Phys.org site.

    It might be possible, someday, for people (or more likely instruments) to use a version of this Alumina-Glass to look inside the outer walls of the E-Cat.

    There is additional information in the Nature article.

    J.C. Renoir:
    Who wrote this has understood nothing of the Relativity, or of the Rossi Effect, or of both.
    It is tragicomic to see how persons that barely have been able to go beyond the middle schools talk of Relativity with the same “souplesse” with which they talk of soccer in coffee shops every Monday morning. Our matter is extremely difficult and the more I study, the more I understand I need to learn.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    D. Travchenko:
    Yes, I agree. We at the Journal of Nuclear Physics have also received a paper of Dr Vitaly Uzikov and Dr Irina Uzikova related to the treatment of radioactive wastes ( Dr Uzikov has a strong experience in Nuclear Power plants) that is under our peer review; I read it and I think it is a breakthrough in this field.

    Curiosone:
    I am making a very strong and paramount job with my patents. I have in preparation and pending right now a total of 146 patents, all strictly related to the E-Cat. Honestly, I think that 84 will be granted, based on the experience I made in these years working on patents, and the others will not, but I will try all the same, even if I don’t think they will go through. But 84 will go through, I am very confident.

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    Next years? Most proper to say “next decades”. The big problem there is the confinement by the magnetic field, which is very unstable and you have to take millions of Kelvins away from any material you can conceive. It is like buiding a house shooting the brinks with a gun instead of putting them one upon the other manually. Good Luck to these guys anyway: as I always said, any source is precious. In this case, very precious.

    Dear Andrea:
    I appreciated very much the comment of Irina Uzikova. By the way: she and her father, they are nuclear physicists of the mainstream scientific world of Moscow. Her father, Vitaly Uzikov, has an enormous experience related to nuclear energy. I am glad to see that you are in contact with them.

    Hello Dr. Rossi,
    the Germans built a prototype “Wendelstein 7-x” nuclear fusion to produce clean energy that will come into operation in next years perhaps.
    Scientists spend a lot of money to look for complex solutions while you have found the most economical solutions.

    Dear Andrea,

    it was interesting to see this Huffington Post interview on
    the http://andrea-rossi.com/interviews/ website, we can expect to see
    more mainstream media participating in this clean energy revolution
    in the coming months.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    That has been just from Sifferkoll. In total, from all the sources ( JoNP, Arxiv, Elforsk, Andrea-Rossi, Leonardo website, etc) the downloads have been about one million.

    hello Dr. Rossi, the ratio of Lugano is having a great success.
    #LENR Interest Per Capita is Big in Bulgaria, Netherlands and Sweden

    More than a year after releasing the Lugano Report there are still thousands of downloads per month. In total it has been downloaded about 200,000 times from sifferkoll.se. Looking at download statistics it is interesting to notice that some countries seem to have a much bigger interest per capita than others. Especially Bulgaria, Netherlands and Sweden closely followed by Austria, Germany, Ukraine and Switzerland.

    Irina Uzikova:
    Thank you very much for your intelligent comment.
    For us is an honour to get the attention of your father, Dr Vitaly Uzikov, and you, from the great Russian Academy of Science.
    Good luck to you and your father for the important work you are doing with your method to reduce the radioactive wastes: your technology is the game changer in that crucial sector.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Irina Uzikova

    Dear Andrea,
    Here is a very interesting article about the most common comments of LENR “critics” and answers on it written by Talgat Zayniev: http://talgaton.livejournal.com/129480.html#comments
    And its translation in English: http://uva62.livejournal.com/18445.html

    Wish You all the best, and good luck with working on Your amazing invention!

    Frank Acland:
    It is not a complete description, nor it is a consolidated idea about a theory of which I am preparing together with Prof Norman Cook something more structured under a mathematical point of view. Call it a first approach, very superficial. Much deeper considerations are coming, albeit I don’t know how soon.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Thank you for your insight, but, as you know, I never comment the work of our competitors.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Recently, Peter Hagelstein of MIT gave a presentation about LENR, the slides are at http://coldfusionnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Hagelstein-Talk-09-2015.pdf . On slides 32-40 he shows that in PdD, because no neutrons are observed, produced alphas must have lower than 20 keV energy. Otherwise an alpha would occasionally hit a deuteron that would receive energy, collide with another deuteron, cause hot fusion and produce a neutron with 50% probability. Since those neutrons are not seen, the alphas must have relatively low energy.

    A similar consideration can be made for the E-cat, but with higher alpha energy upper limit because deuterons make up only 0.0115% of natural hydrogen. The neutron yield should be proportional to deuteron density squared, so it is suppressed by factor of 1.3e-8 relative to pure deuteron. I do not know how high energy limit this corresponds to, because Hagelstein’s curves do not reach that far in energy. If the E-cat uses deuterium-depleted hydrogen, neutron production is suppressed even more.

    I have said earlier that some upper limit for alpha energy exists because high-energy alphas can strip neutrons from lithium-7. I realised only now, when reading Hagelstein, that in case of Pd-D there is a much stricter limit coming from deuterons. In case of natural hydrogen plus lithium, I do not know which alpha energy limit is stricter: that coming from lithium-7 or that coming from deuterium.

    Hagelstein’s good insight is that he uses the Pd-D itself as an alpha detector (by noting that alphas produce neutrons from it, which travel outside the reactor and are possible to detect by other means), thus avoiding the problem of how to operate a detector in the hot conditions of the reactor core.

    In all cases, deriving (from measurements) an upper limit for alphas constrains possible theories of LENR in a strong way.

    Dear Andrea,

    I have just come across this page on the ecat.com website titled “The Rossi Effect” :http://ecat.com/ecat-science/the-rossi-effect

    Are you the author of this document, and is it a complete description of the Rossi Effect?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    A. Bhatt:
    Yes, we already talked of it on this blog. Doubtless, it is an interesting cover story. IH too is cited, which confirms that our work is under the radar of important concerns. The story is focused on hot fusion. Interesting, it surely is worth the price of the magazine.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • A. Bhatt

    Dear Andrea,

    Not sure if this has been posted but the cover of Time magazine is called Fusion. Going to grab it today and give it a read.

  • Dear Sir,

    For your information: Russian floating nuclear power station details. A potential partner for ECAT to design and build ECAT power stations for fast instillation in developing nations. Please note the modular desalinisation plant. I will write to educate them about ECAT and to propose an exploration. ECAT would save them a lot of money and problems.

    Steven N. Karels:
    Mostly yes, it’a a matter of manufacturing that is under examination.

  • Steven N Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Larger eCat reactors become more difficult to control? Perhaps it is a geometry issue? The Thermal output power grows as the cube of the change while the thermal dissipation only grows as the square of the change. However, going to n-number of smaller reactors allows the volume to area ratio to approximately remain the same. Thoughts?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Honestly, it has been put on hold when the tests on the 1 MW plant has been started, but that work will be resumed asap.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Many months ago you mentioned that there was R&D going on with a jet engine — can you say if this is still ongoing, and if there is any progress in this area?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- The more you raise the more difficult the control
    2- yes
    3- I am always hopeful; I fall many times.

    Dear Dr Rossi

    Do the non-management employees of your customer know that they are involved in the one year test of a radical and controversial new source of power or do you suppose they believe you are just testing some new type of super efficient electrical boiler?

    Good luck with your ongoing test.

    Larry

  • Jürgen Schmitt

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Thank you for your info about the 250kW reactors. Since yesterday I have learnt that they are called E-Tigers. Now that you have a patent and all, would it be totally out of question to introduce this new member of the E-Cat family by letting us see a portrait of it? I am sure that this would be very appreciated by many of your faithful fans.
    /Kind regards, Jürgen

  • Steven N Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    From previous postings it seems you have functionally demonstrated eCat technology in a single reactor with thermal output ranges from 3 kW to 250kW.
    1. Are there theoretical reasons for limiting the thermal output to 250kW?
    2. Can reactors below 3 kW thermal output be produced and functioning?
    3. Are your estimates of an effective COP of 6 (several years ago) going to be adjusted, hopefully upward?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    So is it a case of the journey being so far so good, but there’s still a chance of a blizzard, tornado, or earthquake causing your car to crash before you reach your destination?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

    Gerard McEk:
    It depends on the kind of insurgent troubles affecting the reliability. The problem is that if something troublesome happens that affects the reliability after, say, 10 months, maybe a kind of phenomenon that could happen anytime, not necessarily after 10 months: this could put a serious bump in the scheduling. Things are very complex, it is not as easy as to say ” if it worked well 9 months, then it means it can work at all times”. I agree with you on the point that what we reached so far fulfills our plans, but still the situation is fluid and the final results coud be either positive or negative.
    I am working very, very hard, but still I cannot promise anything, because an enormous work has still to be done.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
