    Cold Fusion DENIALISM needs to end now article.

    Such denialism is surely a crime against the
    planet and humanity.

    Dear mr Rossi,

    The fact that replications so far have not achieved very high COP:

    Is there still a secret ingredient in Your e-cat that it not known to the public?

    Dear Andrea,

    Perhaps the new patents are more important than the current 1MW plant, even though the 1MW plant has endured. Are you currently endurance testing more reliable versions of your technology based on patent approvals for possible release during the upcoming 12 month period?

    1) Are you currently endurance testing alternative ECats that are based on the new patents?
    2) Are you hopeful of any additional patent approvals during the next 90 days?
    3) Do the new patents “solve” the current problems you are having?
    4) Are you more concerned about the new patent applications being approved soon than you are about the 1 year 1MW test?

    Your endurance continues to resist without failures!

    Tom

  • Dear Andrea Rossi, Alessandro Coppi:

    Perhaps inductive heating could be used to make a reactor whose hot part is small, relatively simple and potentially low-cost, in which case its replacement could be done more frequently. Other parts of the reactor would run at lower temperature and would be designed to last long. For example, the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VydPQuLyEns shows how to magnetically levitate and heat a piece of metal up to melting point (I’m not sure but I think that the inductive coils are hollow and are cooled by water from inside). At the end the piece melts and drops to the floor, making a pond before solidifying. In another video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw_SrGU2iYs , another guy melts and boils copper in a ceramic inductive heater. In both cases, heat escapes from the hot piece mainly by radiation and convection, thus not exposing other parts of the device to high temperature. In the first video, magnetic levitation (which is available as a byproduct of inductive heating) provides a thermal barrier, in the latter video, a ceramic insulator does the same thing.

    Considering general design philosophy, such hypothetical reactor might be faster to develop (in sense of R&D) than the present one. The hot part would be quick to test because its design lifetime would be relatively short. Concerning the other parts, they would run cooler so that accelerated aging in artificial thermal environment would be feasible. Overall, it might then be possible to have a design iteration cycle which is much shorter than the machine’s planned service lifetime.

    Just some vague ideas…

    best regards, /pekka

    At this stage could be profitable an E-CAT module that lasting 15 days before replacing? also held in account the CO2 issue.

    Alessandro Coppi:
    I am sorry, but, perhaps because I am tired, I do not understand well your point: can you rephrase it?

    Muriel:
    What I have learnt so far is that 3D Printing technology is very mature scientifically and technologically, but still in the “pioneer” phase, in which industrial costs are too high to allow an application in massive production systems. I would say that by now 3D Printing is valid to produce prototypes, also due to its elasticity in adapting the manufacturing to improvements or changes; for massive production its costs are prohibitive.
    Obviously this can change in time.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    the E-CAT troubles bring me to the memory the Thomas Alva Edison first experiments with the electric lamps, he had many trouble before to arrive to tungsten and vacuum solution. Before it seemed a good performance the one of carbon wire, that lasted a while, before to burn, as the actual E-CAT.
    Now we have the LED technology that last years, and consumes few watts.
    Could have sense realize very high power units that last few days, instead than months before they have to be reprocessed?
    This method as a compromise while we wait for the “LED” technology.

    Best regards

    They are two different products.
    Besides, the 1 MW plant is operating since about 9 months, the E-Cat X since several weeks and we have broken several of them before this last version. Give time to the troubles, be sure they will arrive.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will you use 3D printing to produce the E-Cats? Time ago you were considering it

  • Alessandro Coppi

    Hi Andrea,
    you said:” 1MW troublesome, working on issues.
    E-Cat X very good.”.
    Are there any reasons to continue the development of the old 1 MW instead of switch to the new E-CAT X now?

    Best regards

    So far I am not making History, but just a lot of work. I must add that eventually the History of this work could be positive or negative.
    I understood perfectly your point and you are not wrong; in fact, many other industries will make synergy with us for the production of the E-Cat, provided they work properly.
    Warm Regards,

  • Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: Please do not misinterpret my previous questions; I hope you maintain control of your IP. I am simply asking the question if it would be more efficient for others who have “been there and done that” to help Leonardo scale and market your new fire. Thanks again for sharing with us; it is an honor to watch you make history.

    Pekka Janhunen, you said:

    >The global warming effect of the elevated CO2 of course will last for centuries and does not react noticeably to the introduction of LENR.

    I’m more optimistic: take a look here:

    http://www.technologyreview.com/featuredstory/531346/can-sucking-co2-out-of-the-atmosphere-really-work/

    particularly where is said: “That means an effective air-capture machine would need to push vast amounts of air past amines to get enough carbon dioxide to stick to them and then regenerate the amines to capture more. That would require a lot of energy and thus be very expensive”

    so, if F9>0 I think we would see a flourishing of new technologies like CO2 sucking, radioactive isotopes capturing, etc

    I read your comment, forwarded to this blog from Ing. Michelangelo De Meo.
    The application you are talking about is premature and I am not ready to give exhaustive answers.
    If the results of the tests on course will give positive results, our prioritie will be industrial and domestic units.
    Thank you for your kind words and attention.

    Mr. Rossi,

    The need for your Ecat may have increased in California;
    The CA South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is proposing significant changes to “NOx RECLAIM” regulations. NOx is a contributor to smog. However, the SCAQMD is proposing now that Southern California businesses slash NOx emissions up to 66% in seven years. These changes are expected to be approved by the SCAQMD Governing Board December 4, 2015.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, Please find hereunder the communication I received on my facebook group “E-Cat dr. Andrea Rossi (Cold Fusion)”

    This communication is addressed to you.

    I appeal directly to Dr. Andrea Rossi, hoping that it can read and respond.
    Gent.Dottor Andrea Rossi I consider it superfluous to express congratulations to the discovery and application of ‘”impossible invention”
    From an interview I heard to say that “small is beautiful” and that, with regard to small cars for family use, need to be indoctrinated and trained personnel responsible for installation at the end user.
    For many decades, together with the Union of Associations of craft Crafts, we are constantly updated and empowered about the regulations applied to plant systems using different gases.
    Many of our insights found in the field, have been communicated to bodies responsible for drafting legislation.
    We can be useful to somehow, to solve problems related to the installation of its product in the home of the end user?
    We may have an interview with him to share with our installers in the common room, where it can ‘explain the operation and application of his car?
    Thanking you in advance
    Best regards

    Dear Bernie Koppenhofer
    I perfectly agree with you about the urgent need to solve climate change problem and that ECat seems to be the best candidate (F9). A new Manhattan Project, as you suggest, was perfectly adequate for the purpose, with Dr. Rossi in the role of Prof. Oppenheimer. To free the humankind from the carbon servitude is a quantum leap that we have to win urgently because the danger is more serious than what Hitler was, and more challanging too.
    But, you know, Manhattan Project was sponsored by the United State government that invested a super massive effort in it (around 130,000 people were involved and a lot of buildings (a town) and machinery).
    Where are the governments that firmly believe in ECat so much to undertake a similar commitment ?
    In my opinion Dr. Rossi would not reject a supreme call to lead a great project like that (the “Leonardo Project”), maybe even sacrificing his lifelong dream of entrepreneur, if someone should ask him to do. But you forget we have blind leaders. Today a tiny tiny fraction of the money and efforts that would be required goes to ITER instead.
    :( Sob

    God bless you

  • Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Concerning the climate, as is well known the increase of the global average temperature by CO2 is an ongoing slow process which is mostly felt in high latitude regions like Finland, because in lower latitudes water vapour is relatively speaking a more important greenhouse gas.

    However, the introduction of LENR energy can have another kind of climatic effect that one can observe sooner. Because of manmade emissions e.g. from China and India, the northern hemisphere atmosphere (which has rather weak mixing with the southern hemisphere airmass) presently carries more aerosol particles than the southern hemisphere. This keeps the northern hemisphere slightly cooler than it would be in the absence of those emissions, and that in turn keeps the location of the tropical rainzone (which follows the latitude of maximum temperature) somewhat more south than its natural location. As smoke emissions from coal burning in China and India are reduced, these manmade changes are reversed. As a result, the pattern of rainfall particularly in Africa shifts northward, drying up southern Africa and making the sub-Saharan Africa correspondingly wetter. The timescale of this change is expected to be more rapid than the CO2 induced warming, because aerosol particles have a short lifetime in the atmosphere. If emissions are cut quickly, the climatic change depending on aerosols is also quick. Initially, for some years, it may look as if introducing LENR accelerates the climate change (faster warming of northern hemisphere and shifting rainfall in Aftica), but the period of fast change lasts only until the natural state has been achieved. The global warming effect of the elevated CO2 of course will last for centuries and does not react noticeably to the introduction of LENR.

    best regards, /pekka

  • Warren

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    As an update, just answer this: all right so far?

  • Charlie

    Mr Rossi:
    You are right: you must defend your IP, to allow investors finance the strong development the Rossi Effect needs. With an intellectual property graciously given away as a gift, maybe for the hypocrital and narcisistic will to appear like a benefactor, could block any serious investment on this so important technology.
    Godspeed,
    Charlie
