    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is there among your clients for the industrial plants a heat provider for industrial or domestic use?

  • Andy

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did you already design the 1 MW QX?

    Dear Andrea,

    The 1MW plant orders in your portfolio, can you say if the number so far is

    a) 1-10
    b) 11-50
    c) 51-200
    d) 201+

    Thanks if you are able to answer,

    Dear Andrea,

    thank you for the openness of your reply to my “stress test” question. I appreciate the guiding force of “speed to market”.

    To me, this suggests that the post-Stockholm enhanced QX might be “over-engineered” as I, a non-engineer, understand it . . . where the materials and specifications include a margin of comfort of say 25%, or 50%, or 100% to ensure speedy extraction of 40W heat and inordinate durability of materials over a specified time frame, such as 2 years for the singlet module, or 10-15 years for the super-structure of heat transfer materials of the 100QX 4kW unit and/or miniaturized controller module.

    Am I suggesting too much about the decision to delay “stress testing”?

    As always, my best to you and the team.

    Buck

  • Andrea Rossi

    Buck:
    Thank you for your suggestion, but at this point we have to deliver first, eventually we will stress test the evolution.
    Thank you for your kind attention to our work,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Buck

    Dear Andrea,

    I can imagine you are very encouraged with the enhanced design of the QX reactor + controller arising after your successful Stockholm demonstration. That and the decision to rate and run the QX at 40W for the singlet, for the unit configuration of 100 QX’s, and for the 1MW plant configuration.

    Do you and your partner see it as prudent to “stress test” all this redesign work for the different configurations so as to confirm expected operational limits? All this before you go through the expense of programming the robots? Who knows what you and your engineering team might observe during this stress test . . . certainly refinements to software and hardware may spring from this experience.

  • Mattias Andersson

    Dear Andrea,

    I wish for you in 2018 success with bringing a product to the market. However I also wish for you some time for relaxation. It seems to me that you’re working with some limited resources under a lot of pressure. Chronical stress is not the solution, however bright the invention might be!

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I am following your work from the year 2011.
    I think I found a base for a theory. I think the reaction is about exponential contact surface exposure due to micro cavities in the Ni compound structures (nucleation sites).
    All the best,

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Do you already have an orders portfolio for the 1 MW plants when you will begin to stock them in your factory?
    Thank you if you can answer,

    Dear Andrea:
    The engineer that independently measured the performance of the Ecat QX at the IVA of Stockholm is a senior engineer of the second refinery of the USA, after Exxon: will they use your technology? This would make sense, for them to give evidence of their effort to reduce the impact of refineries on the global warming.
    Cheers
    Corey

  • C

    Mr Rossi:
    three months are passed after the Stockholm show, but in tis timeframe you made absolutely nothing, so that if you made zero in 3 months, you will make 3 x 0 = 0 in the rest of the year. Is the math correct?

  • Ian Coderre

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I just finished to read “An impossible invention” of mats Lewan: how inspiring is your life!

    Dear Andrea,

    You have said that you have a made a prototype, and you have already chosen the ABB Robots. What kinds of work do you need to do before you start programming the robots?

    Regarding applications in space: Actually a 1MW ECat QX power plant on the moon in a moon base or some or some other deap space application could be immensely useful even just as a thermal source during the long nights or dark periods or in deep space at or beyond mars orbit. Even more so if it could provide electrical power or support propulsion etc especially if it was small and light enough to launch could be configured to run at say 50kW for 20 years.

    I know at this time the focus is on the product and it’s early to think of these kinds of applications. But once the product is released some of these organizations and new space technology companies should be really considering the E-Cat-QX for future mission planning. These missions can take a decade or two to plan design and build. In that time frame these applications could be really viable I think.

    I see the focus now is on the product and your past presentation was focused on this and it’s eventual presentation as a product. I wonder will there be some point in the future where you will be presenting the product more generally after the initial product release with a view to find and develop its use in specific potential applications or its development and optimization to fulfill these particular uses like this and others?

    I think that will be an important moment for many could generate huge interest ion people who are quitely waitin for that moment and could be the next key milestone once the product itself is released.

    Best Regards
    Stephen

    Dear Andrea, Kinetic energy etc. with regards LENRs. This explanations complex regarding neutrals and photons but I am giving it a go from my unacademic understanding of a mechanism and I hope it can help explain LENRs in some way. Tried to condense it as much as possible.

    We all know that kinetic energy is that which keeps a body in motion even when the force that moved it is removed but what is the mechanism that induces kinetic energy into an object?. My understanding is simply displacement of the internal structure of the object, brought about by an object travelling over a distance in a given time. One attribute that all structures contain is gravity being the binding force that maintains the structure over a given period of time with regards a change in environment. [The mechanical mechanism previously described contains an inner binding force that can be considered as an economy flow. This flow circulates as two helical trajectories produced upon contact of the two unequal oscillating masses of structured air that rotate in the same direction but do subsequently come into contact in the centripetal position of the mechanism. Thereby two vibrating helical trajectories of flow return back across the inner flow and combine within the inner oscillating mass of the inner structure. The two unequal masses, that create the helical trajectories upon contact, readjust becoming of the same dimensions and these also oscillate around a common axis as they exit the mechanism, only to return on a macro loop that surrounds the mechanism and that because of a vibrational frequency of the manufactured circuits they insulate the manufactured structured field by creating a push/pull force of neutrality (this frequency could be responsible for a valency value) prevents the mechanism from having an attractive force. This information is relevant to the explanation. To create any structure a binary activity has to exist either between two masses of size/volume dimensions, or multiples such, such as a proton or electron or two particles that constitute a structure of no mass (I refer to a photon). Hydrogen has a weak binding force between its proton and electron bond. The proton and electron rotate in the same direction and thereby maintain a necessary given distance within its atomic structure. The electron circumnavigates the proton by an oscillating activity that maintains separation by an undetectable neutral force. Every structure with mass has the potential to become neutral. In the LENR process, it could be that this distance between the proton and electron is increased creating a more distinct void/point of gravity to occur between these two masses. One comprised of particles of size/positivity and one of particles of volume/negativity. The proton being of size dimension could be drawn into a fissure of nickel by gravity created by an applied current. The created void/gravity value between each mass i.e. proton/electron, creates a structure comprised of an admixture of charges of size and charges taken from the two hosts. This manufactured structure is a neutral between two hosts/masses of opposite charges. The neutral, can be considered as one event horizon between two gravity masses, that contains an inner point of zero gravity and an outer environmental gravity value. The donated charges being within an event horizon that is a constructed neutral, are mobile charge potentials that over a distance in space and time continually alternate to become size positive, volume negative and intermediate neutral (this configuration I shall explain later). The hydrogen atom at this time does not exist as such. What exists is a size mass of a proton, volume mass of an electron and a neutral mass that rotates counter to that of the proton and electron, vibrates and pulsates because it is a neutral between two potentials. All current produces interregnums whether artificially induced or not. If the fissure suffers an interregnum of current, it loses a gravity value. A neutral is a structure of photons only, so when the proton is released from the fissure the neutral collapses due to a lack of necessary space releasing photons into its volume negative environment causing the negative cloud to expand because photons have no mass but do take up space (explanation later). The proton because of its release incurs velocity that displaces its gravity, inducing kinetic energy allowing the proton to penetrate the electron cloud and reacts by producing neutrals on its now 360degree event horizon. I suspect plasma is formed by the condensing of neutrals formed around a zero point of gravity within a negative environment. Neutrals are formed of photons, therefore when the neutrals are discharged from the manufactured plasma, the integral photons are released into the negative environment where they take up a degree of space. With regards the self sustain mode of a LENR, it could be that if a photon lodged itself within a fissure, it could in theory set up a pulse/vibration creating heat then cold due to the activity of the two neutrals within a restricted area, this could pull in a proton and propel out the proton to maintain a continuous reaction without the need of an applied current.
    Photons are massless. To have mass, I believe, you need a minimum of one proton and one electron. Photons are comprised of just two particles that in space and time alternate to become size positive, volume negative and neutral intermediate. They are closely associated to the pyramid being within the event horizon of a neutral. Photons could be visioned as such. Draw a triangle, cut off the apex, make it flat because of it being of a zero point of gravity. The base being an environmental gravity value. The sides of the triangle represent the tangential forces within the horizon. Only one of the sides should be considered because of particle activity. The volume negative particle descends on the outer slope of the wall towards the apex its tangential curve, at the same instant from the apex a size positive particle ascends on the inner side of the wall towards the base on an inner tangential curve. The volume and the size of each charge will adjust in accordance upon its position with that of the wall. Consequently at the midway point both charges are of the same dimension of neutrality and occupy two spaces, that equal that of half the area of that of the base of the pyramid,( being geometrically balanced) this causes an outward pressure of one particle and an inward pressure of the other particle (this activity occurs in the mechanism). The two particles are on helical trajectories of a structure with no mass (Mass is definitive, alternating charges are neither one thing or another). Because the two helical trajectories are both spinning around the same central axis of there pyramid, an illusion of shape is produced. Thereby the photon in time and space would alternate its shape between that of a stemless goblet and that of a pyramid. The goblet would appear when the two neutrals exist. The pyramid would exist when the two opposite charges exist out of there midway position. Thereby in time and space the photon would vibrate to maintain its two shapes. It could be said that the zero point of gravity and the environmental gravity value are connected by an intermediate gravity value being an event horizon. The two charges never lose contact because they represent the neutral value of a given space. Resistance of a structure to expand when subjected to an influx of positive and negative potentials of neutrals or photons constitutes as a measure of a containment of energy in degrees of measurable heat. When a charge is occupying a large area like on a circumferential dimension, a charge is active and free to move over its area of existence as a negative. When a charge is occupying a confined area like in a central position around a point of zero gravity, a charge is restrained in its movement within its area of existence as a positive. Thereby when a positive increases its velocity by entering a larger area and the negative decreases its velocity because of less space due to an uninvited guest, two displacements can register as a value of electrical energy, heat energy or light energy dependent upon the value of the attained neutral and that of resistance. This subject could be said to be endless but one thing is certain, LENR do occur and they occur by means of an induced process. Lets hope that one day this process will be explainable and comprehensive.

    The field of application of the E QX reactors is immensity and if the profitability is acquired the demand will be considerable.
    Do you plan to build partnerships with specialized groups in particular areas of concern (heating, electricity generation, transportation, etc.)?

    The Kilopower by NASA uses radioactivity for generating heat, then converted to electricity using a Stirling system.
    It could use a QuarkX for heat instead of radioactivity

    James:
    It is a mini nuclear reactor that uses uranium and plutonium.
    For obvious reasons, it is destined to be employed in Space or in planets like the moon or Mars…certainly not in populated areas. Can you imagine the probability to obtain the authorizations to disseminate our planet of mini-nuclear reactors working with Uranium 235 and Plutonium? The similarities with the E-Cat are zero. We do not use radioactive materials and do not generate radioactive materials.
    Warm Regards,

  • James

    Dear Dr. Rossi,
    are you aware of the “Kilopower” project at NASA? They are realizing a very small scale (about 10-40Kw) fission reactor coupled to heat pipes and a stirling generator for producing electricity. It has many similarities to your technologies and/or it has potential synergies. Note that the thermal and conversion parts of that reactor are ready, and they are made of commercially available parts.

    Today I read an interesting article on the New York Times about the bitcoins and about their monstrous consumption of electricity, such to make them a potential significant source of global warming. But I have not knowledge of them, so I prefer to suspend any opinion. I think the bigger question is: what is the principal of their value?
    A currency incorporates work and assets of the Countries it is coined from, but a bitcoin what incorporates, apart the algorythm it comes from?
