    Gherardo:
    Yes, I am in my factory, working with the QuarkX ( pretty good ).
    No inconveniences at all, because the hurricane Matthew did not hit the area we are working in. All we got here has just been a long storm, not a hurricane. We have been lucky, while, disgracefully, a strong hit has been made few miles north of us.
    Thank you for your concern,

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    I like very much the comment of Rainer Rander: do you know who is he ? There are rumors is a physicist of CERN.
    Cheers,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/10/08/some-points-regarding-a-recent-presentation-at-iccf20-on-the-lugano-report-rainer-rander/
    At last it arrived on EW a past due answer to the amateurs that criticized the work of the scientists that made the Lugano Report. What is bizarre is that uneducated guys come out to lecture Prof who worked in CERN, teach Physics in some among the most prestigious universities of Europe. In analogy, we have also drop outs from the colleges that lecture nuclear engineers about how to install a flowmeter and measure a temperature…
    Go ahead, Andrea, keep on with your good work for the good of all of us.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    A scientist with the nickname of “Randombit” has published on Ecatworld the following comment:

    “Recently Mr. Robert Greenyer from the so called “MFMP Project” attacked, during a presentation done at ICCF20, the results of the “Lugano Report”, a technical report written, more than two years ago, by an international group of scientist that clearly shows that o prototype of the your High Temperature Reactor, was producing Energy with a COP of about 3.6.
    The harsh critical statements, claiming that the whole analysis was wrong and that just a tiny effect was observed, was spread over the net without any details and this behavior pattern seemed immediately to me, and other colleagues from European Universities and Research Centers, quite unscientific and unprofessional.
    In fact, I was able to retrieve from the Internet a document, dated August 2016, http://magicsound.us/MFMP/MFMP_Research-August2016.pdf, written by the same person in name of the
    MFMP where substantially the same declarations are made adding that:
    “the Optris thermal camera needed an emissivity in the range of 0.95 to match temperatures seen
    by the thermocouples”.
    This statement is absolutely surprising and disappointing. We should remember that Alumina total integrated emissivity is, at low temperature, about 0.64 and that this figure di decreases with increasing temperatures.
    Supposing that there was no problem with the thermal contact of the Thermocouple, that is not trivial due to the fact that Alumina
    is a good thermal insulator, the figure obtained by MFMP simply means that the material used by them was not pure Alumina.
    Even a small fraction of Mg as found in common “Alumina” cements as “Durapot”, can change material emissivity dramatically.
    So with that result MFMP has simply demonstrated that:
    1) The material they used was NOT the same of the Lugano measure, or
    2) Thermocouple positioning and/or thermal contact was not correct.
    In both cases we must conclude that their results are NOT significant in any way.
    The MFMP report also does not include a real energy calibration, just temperatures being reported, that is necessary in order to know how much power is really injected in the coils.
    We should note also that MFMP is ignoring the fact that the Lugano group had measured emissivity of Alumina on the pipes and also calibrated the empty reactor up to 450 °C obtaining a perfect agreement with the measured power and the known values of Alumina emissivity.
    This also rules out any of the fanciful considerations about “spectral emissivity” of Alumina that do not consider the fact that any IR detector is factory calibrated in order to permit usage of total emissivity values during measure.

    In conclusion we think that the points raised by MFMP against the Lugano Report lack of any foundation and have no scientific value.

    Replications of my Effect made in a laboratory for a scientific purpose are not a violation of patent.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    Thank you for the information and best wishes to the team that is replicating my effect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Dr. Rossi,
    More about the replications on course:

    “First, the need for a vacuum pump is obvious. Oxygen, carbon monoxide, and other trapped gases must be removed from the nickel lattice. They fill up space that hydrogen needs. Until the oxygen, carbon, and other gases are removed, very little hydrogen will be able to enter the lattice. This has been mentioned repeatedly by different individuals.

    Secondly, the need for a second source of hydrogen is obvious. Focardi and others have discovered that hydrogen can be best absorbed by utilization of steps of pressure. You allow a quantity of hydrogen to be absorbed and then you add more hydrogen pressure so even more can be absorbed. Focardi utilized many steps of hydrogen absorption. When it comes to systems utilizing LiAlH4, a very slow ramp up in the hydrogen release temperature range may simulate this. However, having a supplemental source of hydrogen pressure like Songsheng utilized will allow you to increase the hydrogen pressure at temperatures far beyond that of hydrogen release by LiAlH4.

    Thirdly, Me356 has mentioned how areas of clean nickel seemed to irradiate heat much more powerfully than oxidized nickel. Utilizing an initial stage of nickel cleaning is very important.

    The first two of these secrets match up perfectly to Me356’s post in which he mentions there are two things that could boost the success rate of Rossi Effect replications to 90%. The use of a vacuum pump and the addition of extra hydrogen in addition to LiAlH4 (only Songsheng has done this) match perfectly!”

    Are they violating your patents?

  • Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Hello, Dr. Rossi:
    Here is a team that says is close to replicate your Effect:

    “I hope that in terms of weeks. More time mean a better COP. My goal is at least COP of 3 that should be convincing enough and quite useful for a real usage.
    There are many many things to try that could improve it dramatically, but it takes a lot of time to develop a new design that can utilize the improvement. And of course most of these are wrong.
    I am learning new things with each experiment so I have no recipe yet.

    What replicators really need is vacuum pump and some additional hydrogen source. This will solve many problems.

    I believe that MFMP will achieve higher COP very soon too, it is just matter of time.”
    What do you think?

    Mr Rossi:

    Gerard McEk:
    The matter of the fact is that the hurricane Matthew has not hit the area in which we are. All we got has just been a storm, not at all a hurricane. The area that has been hit hardly is north of us, around Orlando and now the hurricane is going toward north, north-east.
    We worked regularly, with no problem at all.
    Thank you for your concern,

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    After hearing the ICCF just finished in Japan, it is clear that the sole really working LENR device is your E-Cat.
    Everybody has understood that this last ICCF has been organized by IH to try to show to their investors that they have alternative IP after losing your license. Their “puppets”, as you called them, are saying that you should give for free your IP for the good of the world, ignoring that to give for free an IP means to lose the possibility to get real financing for its development. Summing up: go ahead with your good work, do not lose time with the stupidities said in the ICCF, we need your QuarkX in the market and you are the sole one that can do that.
    Godspeed,
    Bob

    Dear Andrea,
    Have you survived the hurricane? Still healthy?
    Did the building, power supply and QuarkX’s survive the enormous winds and flooding?
    Were you able to continue the tests?
    I hope it all worked out well.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Mr. Rossi,

    I’ve been browsing research regarding potential new energy sources for a few months now and LENR seems like a promising new source. I’ve glanced through some of the updates of different groups trying out different things and seems like progress is being made.

    I read the recent posting about your Quarkx going with many smaller generators to overcome safety concerns. A potential issue with this is the amount of time to switch out parts and replace with your substitution method even if they are circuit boards.

    Another issue is I’m not sure how you are going to handle pricing as in you rent them out or they buy it and you just refuel by switching etc but I’m sure there are many options.

    In terms of when you do refuel if you’re going with substitution, I would look at the freight containers you have pictures with on the original ecat. Just have a truck come by with a new container of fueled ecats and pick up the old container and take it to where you have your facility. Also I’d recommend looking at perhaps hemp plastic composite containers. They are lightweight and approach 10x the strength of steel for durability and easier loading offloading. Or some kind of container that can be moved easely and will last for some time.

    This also depends on where the customer stores their devices whether indoor or outdoor.

    Hopefully we’ll start seeing some advances in terms of LENR, fusion, or other methods start coming online to help bring our Earth greater sustainability. There seems to be several options brewing so we’ll see what happens.

    Best of luck and continue the good work
    -Chief

    Now, at 4.30 P.M., here we are hit by a storm, but not yet a hurricane. It is foreseen a hurricane with winds at 140 mph ( 226 km/h ). We’ll see, I am curious. At worst, I’ll sleep here in the factory, which is safe. No problem.

    Dear Andrea,

    Chapman has written the following in E-cat News five days ago. Would you be so kind to give us your comment (maybe not on all but on the basic assumption about dimensioning to avoid overheating) :

    “I believe (and I am only expressing my opinion based upon the reported facts and a few logical deductions) that the reduction in size is actually a direct control mechanism based upon critical mass cross-section.

    The primary LENR reaction causes SOME FORM of secondary emission which stimulates a secondary reaction in direct proximity to the site of the first. Now, we do not know WHAT that active emission is – could be protons, neutrons, muons… who knows – but we do KNOW that there is a transmission between points. This reaction sequence is both DRIVEN partially by heat and PRODUCES heat, which leads to SSM but, potentially, run-away breakdown. SSM and Run-Away are tied together and juggling them is walking a tightrope.

    Reduction of the cross section of the reactor mass reduces the percentage of that emission that initiates a secondary reaction versus that percentage which reaches the body surface and is thermalized. SSM and Run-Away can still be achieved mathematically, but at a higher temperature, which stimulates a higher primary reaction rate. There is a point where the cross section is reduced to the point that the required SSM temperature exceeds the melting point of the reactor material, which rules out thermal Run-Away, but sacrifices SSM Mode entirely.

    Basically, the increased surface area vs volume means the unit can not reach this critical mass run-away state before it just slags. Which is why Rossi states the dramatic reduction in size is a safety and stability requirement.

    Even “Bundling” quarks will not overcome this, as emissions from one are thermalized at the surface barrier and can not transmit to a parallel unit.

    So, we are left with a matchstick that produced 20w of surface heat when pulsed with an average power input of 1w (given a COP of 20, just a guess), but these matchsticks can be safely bundled without fear of “cross-stimulation” in order to share a common heatsink for thermal energy harvesting.

    It is a tidy solution to a tricky problem. There is still a great potential for the future development of more powerful and impressive iterations, but this simple mechanism gives Rossi an immediately exploitable form factor, and the truth is that this solution will actually serve quite well for the gross majority of the potential market. The matchstick is a surprisingly versatile building block from an engineering and manufacturing perspective.”

    All the best to you and the team,

    Michael

    This is why we are here working under the hurricane run.
    By the way, the hit is starting right now.

    Yes, it is confirmed. With the robot line of ABB to assemble 50,000 parts will be matter of days. Think to the Universe: it is made by Quarks ( in six days, plus one to rest, but that was a manufacturing line quite difficult to replicate ).

    Thank you for your sustain: we are here in the factory right now ( 8.18 a.m. ) working with the QuarkX and with the manufacturing of the industrial plant. So far there is a strong wind whistling, but no rain. We expect to be hit this afternoon, starting from 2 p.m.
    We’ll see ( and hear ). I am much more curious than worried. I never have been personally involved in this kind of situation. Near us a mandatory evacuation has been issued, but not where I have the factory: this is a robust industrial park.
    Warm Regards,
