  • Nagel

    Dr Rossi,
    I totally share your position related to your competitors: just turn a blind eye and go ahead along your way. Between you and them there is an ocean.
    You are the one that will turn the LENR dream into a reality.
    Congratulations for your fantastic US Patent.
    Godspeed,
    Nagel

    Mr Andre Rossi,
    If it will turn out that a heat pump has a COP higher than the E-Cat what will you do?

    F9, would you be manufacturing one domestic e-Cat model for space heating and another model for water heating?

  • Ing. Albert Ellul

    I would like to comment on Greg Leonard’s question inhis post of November 23rd, 2015 at 10:02 AM
    “This is likely to increase the overall heat generated, and so may contribute slightly towards GW.”

    I had carried out a back-of-envelop (Excel) calculation based on the atmosphere’s mass and specific heat and the total energy of combusted oil, coal and gas. This calculation told me that the direct temperature rise due to the combusting of hydrocarbons as different from CO2 caused global warming is less than insignificant, and this did not take into consideration the mass and high specific heat value of the oceans.

    We humans can never cause any measurable, significant or even insignificant temperature rise due to the production of heat by whatever means and for whatever purpose.

    With regard to CO2 induced warming, I have read papers that support the AGW theory and many other valid ones that show that this may be also insignificant. But whatever it is, the E-Cat, F9, will render this question irrelevant.

  • Egon

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can you give also today an update?

  • Jürgen Schmitt

    You are right, steam is water but it is also water gas, and normally you do not call it water.

    Actually formation of steam bubbles impedes the heat transmission from the reactor wall to the water and this will make it more difficult to stabilize the reactor power. Therefore it is possible that it could be advantageous to let the high temperature water out of the reactor before allowing it to form steam. What do you think of this idea?

    Kind regards, Jürgen Schmitt

  • Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    Thank you for your insight.
    What you write could be true, provided the E-Cat will confirm positive results at the end of the tests on course.

  • Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    I too must add my congratulations on the US patent.
    I am full of admiration for the brilliance of your hard work. You are clearly at a very productive part of your life.

    What would you say might be the E-Cat contribution to a reduction of Global Warming (GW)?

    Where the E-Cat is a simple substitution for burning fossil fuel, the nett increase of heat released will probably be the same, but with zero CO2 and other noxious gases. This should be a major help in reducing GW.

    Where E-CatX might run at very high temperature, this might open the way for more efficient use of the heat, and so reduce the amount of heat needed by a little. A little help in reducing GW.

    Where the E-Cat can provide heat cheaply, it will be deployed very widely and in situations where currently there is no heat generated. This is likely to increase the overall heat generated, and so may contribute slightly towards GW.

    How do you see the balance?
    regards,
    Greg Leonard

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Attention: New paper on Tresino Molecules (now called Dark Rotors). (See links below)

    In the Beginning…. The rest of the story?

    Dark rotors in the late universe
    http://www.heliyon.com/article/e00039/

    Compton Composites Late in the Early Universe
    http://www.mdpi.com/2075-4434/2/3/382

    I just received a copy of a new paper (Dark Rotors in the Late Universe) from Dr. Frederick Mayer and a copy of an earlier work by Dr. Mayer and the late Dr. John Reitz.

    I haven’t yet read (or understood) the paper/(s) in their entirety but have read some of their previous work.

    Many of us have read the book of Genesis, but my first impression is that we may have just received a glimpse of the Technical Manual that describes what “actually” happened.

    The scope of the paper starts from Compton Scale particles in the early Universe (first paper) and then describes spinning Proton-Tresino molecules (e.g. Dark Rotors) in the “somewhat” known Universe.

    How Drs. Mayer & Reitz came up with these ideas may be a miracle, especially if there is validation of their work.

    Their theory may describe Dark Matter, and shed light on Dark Energy as well.

    Amazing, if true. There could even be some link to LENR.

    Standard Model and Super-Standard Regards,

    Joseph Fine

    Tom Conover:
    Thank you, but much work remains to be done and until something remains to do, it is like nothing has been done.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Congratulations for your US Patent.
    Do you think it covers the E-Cat X also after the most recent modifications?

  • Zibi

    Dear Andrea
    Did you find an increase of 62 Ni also in your measurements after the test made in Lugano by the third independent party?
    Cheers

    Oct 10th: Tomorrow we start up the new version of the E-Cat X.
    Oct 11th: 1 MW E-Cat stable, E-Cat X in operation.
    Nov 22nd: The E-Cat X begins her seventh week of operation.

    Congratulations!

    Andrew:
    Yes, but not before the tests will allow us to deem it a product. Now it is just a promise.

    Hank Mills:
    The next Cook- Rossi paper will be published only if it will be worth. Before the publication there is nothing I can say of it, in positive or in negative, as it is obvious.
    The E-Cat X is too green to publish photos of it.
    Have a Great Thanksgiving you too: my one will be inside the plant.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    The theory that alpha particles (positively charged helium atoms) moving at high speeds would indicate that there are magnetic fields being produced by the nuclear reactions inside the reactor chamber of the E-Cat. However, if the alpha particles are traveling in many different directions then it seems the magnetic fields they generate would cancel each other out — yielding nothing but heat as a final product. If, however, the alpha particles being projected by the hydrogen-lithium reactions could be aligned along the same vector, then a powerful magnetic field might be produced that could be transformed to electricity.

    In the upcoming paper with Dr. Cook, will you address any of the possible mechanisms by which magnetic fields or phenomena could produce electricity directly?

    BTW, I would LOVE to see a highly edited (to conceal anything proprietary) photograph of the E-Cat X (even just a picture of the 1400C glowing reactor).

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Sincerely,
    Hank

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is there a possibility that you might be able to provide a photo of the E-Cat X in the near future?
    Thank you for all your work and your persistence.

    Mario:
    The work I am doing with Prof. Norman Cook is theoretical: we are producing a theoretical paper. Theories have nothing to do with patents. As a matter of fact, theories cannot be patented. On the contrary, the US Patent is in the references of the paper, because it has been useful for the formulations we are working upon.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Ann:
    If we will manufacture the domestic E-Cat, all the Customer will have to do, after the installation, will be switch on and switch off.
    Thank you for the hugs ( he,he,he)

    Dear mr Rossi,

    Very Interesting article in Infinite magazine on CF pioneer Richard Oriani, who died in august.

    Like the use of CR-39:
    “Fisher suggested to Oriani that he place the CR-39 detec- tors outside of the electrolyte. He says, “Oriani did that and he found evidence of particles that he could record outside the apparatus. He put two plastic detectors in the gas that was coming off the electrolysis…Lo and behold, he got a shower of tracks on those. Thousands of tracks, more than he cared to count.”

    Have you ever tried CR-39 plastic in your research to check for neutron tracks?

    Thelma:
    I am already studying also on it, but I am still at the stage of the equations; I am working on it helped by a very good engineer, whose brother works in an aircraft manufacturing concern. It will be the priority after the heat and electric power issues will have been consolidated. Got some good ideas, now in fermentation.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Can you tell us something of the test methodology for the Ecat X?

    For example, do you:

    a. Measure effective COP as a function of different loads/temperatures?
    b. Measure start-up and shutdown performance?
    c. Monitor background radiation? If so, what types (neutron, ionizing)?
    d. Are you “frozen” on the software/firmware version employed in the Ecat X? If not, what testing do you typically perform after a firmware or software change?

  • Aliza

    Dear AR,
    Can we have an update for today?

  • Ann

    Dr Rossi,
    To use the domestic E-Cat, if you will produce it, will be necessaryget instructions or it will be just to switch off or switch on?
    I am one from the stampede that has pre-ordered an E-Cat and an Andrearossi hugger too!

  • Jürgen Schmitt

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Reading the specifications for the 1 MW E-Cat at
    http://ecat.com/ecat-products/ecat-1-mw/ecat-1mw-technical-data
    I find the following statement:
    “Water Output Temperature 85-120 °C”
    But what about steam output?

    Kind regards, Jürgen Schmitt

  • Giannino Ferro Casagrande

    Caro Andrea , leggendo la Tua risposta a Maryana mi par di capire , come d’altronde altre volte hai già spiegato , che il cop dell’ECAT – X è molto MOLTO elevato ! Ora Ti prego ; FAI UNO STRAPPO ; qual’é l’acceleratore per aumentare oppure diminuire le performance dell’E-CAT X ???
    Aumenti la pressione all’interno ??? Aumenti la temperatura sopra i 400 gradi ??? Modifichi la quantità di Hidrogeno ???
    Noi quando immetiamo piu Hidrogeno la reazione si ….. come dire ……..affievoliscie !!!!!!
    Lavori sempre con quantità intorno ad 1 grammo di combustibile ? O meno ??? Hai qualche volta timore che possa …..scoppiare …. ???
    Ti ringrazio per l’attenzione Giannino da Udin By by by ;-))
