    Dr Rossi,
    Just a curiosity: does your team include also a Florida State certified engineer?

  • Raffaele

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Have Ecat plants to sell heat already been installed in some industry or facility of any client?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Rudolf Mainz:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,

  • Rudolf Mainz

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Are in the USA necessary authorizations to install the Ecat plants in industries and sell heat?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    They did not interrupt our work and they did not test the plant, their duty was to make the measurement of radiations while the plant was working.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Thanks for the further details about the visit of the Florida inspectors. When you say that they came to ‘control our 1 MW Ecat’ does that mean that they interrupted your own work and did their own testing of the plant, or did they simply take measurements when you were operating it?

    Many thanks,

    Frank

    You know why ITERnity field doesn’t change the game? Because it is confined in the political EATERnity fundamental field by strong forces.

    Dear Dr. Andrea Rossi,

    ITERnity: a game-changer that isn’t changing the game for now.

    But ITERnity is also a story of the people’s deception through the mainstream media. In the belief that “someone very scientific and expensive” is working on the right solution in the long term, we do not have to worry, and everyone can be quietly engaged in his own business.

    Recently I watched the movie: Star Wars, The Last Jedi. Something I thought to be impossible, really happened in that movie: The starcruisers… ran out of fuel !!!
    I am disappointed with the lack of vision among Sci-Fi writers. A future with inexhaustible energy sources was thus the main theme of our education. And now this. :-( Poor children of ours: No bright future for you !

    E-Cat, E-Cat SSM, Hot-Cat, E-Cat QX, E-Cat SK: Changing all kinds of games while keeping most players around the table.

    Sometimes we’re allowed to do good, but only if we promise not to do better for a while.
    I believe that the SK-version or its derivatives will fit very well in drones with laser-gun capacity to incinerate our hair or burn holes in our skin from out of the sky. And they never run out of ammunition.
    There will be a market for this. It does not have to be cheap and simple at all.

    I hope everything goes well. With you and your team and their families and also your customers. It never was easy.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Frank Acland:
    The team of the Healthcare Office of Florida specialized in Ionizing Radiations Measurements arrived unexpectedly to control our 1 MW Ecat while it was performing its performance test in Doral, Florida, at the beginning of February 2016. They wanted to verify if during the operation of the Ecat any ionizing radiation was emitted outside the reactors. They made a very thoroughly control with their instrumentation and at the end allowed us to continue to perform our work, because no irregularity related to the radiations emerged.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You mentioned that the emissions of the E-Cat have been thoroughly measured by the specialized officers of the Healthcare Office of Florida. Can you tell us some more about when these officers visited, and the circumstances of their visit?

    Best regards,

  • Leda

    Dear Andrea,
    reading about the titanic expenses for the hot fusion it is more easy to perceive that if you really will arrive to the industrialization of the Ecat by the time you indicated it will be something similar to a miraculous event. I really wish you to succeed for us all and also because you merit it for your perseverance, courage, dedication. I didn’t say ingenuity, because it is obvious.
    A big hug from a follower,

    You are right, it cannot penetate the skin, but it can pass through the skin porosity.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    About your response to Paolo: now the Italian government has given to ENEA, a taxpayer funded parasitical institution whose R&D has never produced anything useful, 500 million euro to continue to work on the Eater: another “donut”?

    Mats Heijkenskjold:
    The rate of dangerousness of the beta decay of Tritium and its cancerogenicity risk is obviously in function of the amount, that in a nuclear fusion generator at 150 million degrees of temperature would be huge. Tritium penetrates easily through the porosity of the skin and through nose, mouth, ears.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Joseph Fine

    Mats Heijkenskjold

    Tritium decays to Helium-3, an electron and a anti-neutrino. (Beta decay)

    And the emitted electron energy averages only 5 keV. It cannot penetrate the skin but it is dangerous if inhaled. The half-life of tritium is only 12.3 years, so another good question would be why He-3 can be found at the site of volcano eruptions.

  • Mats Heijkenskjold

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for the answer to Paolo, I totally agree with your comment to EATER!

    In your answer you also said: Tritium is one of the most dangerous isotopes existing.
    I have read somewhere that the radiation is very low and it could not penetrate the human skin.
    Could you explain this, please?

    Best regards

    Dr Rossi,
    Kudos for your answer to Paolo. I agree with you.
    Nobody can deny that the probabilities of success of your technology are higher than the realization of the hot fusion. Besides, you cost nothing to the taxpayer.
    Godspeed,
    Roland

  • Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Your reply to paolo regarding hot fusion is full of information that many people are unaware of. Why not make a post that your readers can access whenever. Could be titled ‘A Costly Hot Fusion Nonsense’. This information does need broadcasting. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Thank you for the warning.
    Let me say sound and clear:

    1- WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR INVESTORS, BUT ONLY FOR CLIENTS. IT IS POSSIBLE SOME STRATEGICALLY IMPORTANT CUSTOMER WILL BE INVITED TO BECOME PARTNER , BUT THIS WILL HAPPEN AFTER THEY WILL HAVE USED OUR PLANTS FOR ENOUGH TIME TO GIVE TO THE PARTNERSHIP A FAIR VALUE BASED ON FACTS.
    2- WE ARE NOT GOING TO MAKE AN IPO BEFORE OUR TECHNOLOGY WILL BE WIDELY DIFFUSED IN THE MARKET WITH THOUSANDS OF ECAT PLANTS

    Dr Rossi:
    Maybe you will spam this and I would understand.
    Somebody is hinting that your strategy to sell heat and not plants is aimed to attract investors, hiding the fact that you will sell energy with a loss, but will get a lot of money from investors.
    Please spam, this is dangerous! I just wanted to warn you of what your enemies are saying.

    Prof:
    We constantly measure all the radiations emitted by the Ecat. The emissions have also been thoroughly measured by the specialized officers of the Healthcare Office of Florida, that has a team of specialized agents for this specific purpose, as well as from Physics Professors specialized in such measurement and NEVER has been measured an excess of ionizing radiations beyond the background. This also is an indirect confirmation of the theoretical intuition Gullstrom and I are studying upon ( Carl-Oscar Gullstrom, nuclear physic from the University of Uppsala- you can find his lecture on Youtube whose link is also in our website http://www.ecat.com, or Google ” Youtube video Carl Oscar Gullstrom theoretical lecture of Ecat presentation Stockholm November 24 2017 “)

    Paolo:

    In 1950
    they said that surely within 20 years the hot fusion was going to be in regular production of energy.
    In 1959: my teacher of the elementary school, during a class research about from where electricity came, told us that the hot fusion was going to be the main source before we turned twenty ( I remember this well, because it impressed me ).
    In 1966
    I perfectly remember that in my high school ( Liceo Scientifico Alessandro Volta ) my text book of Physics taught me that within 30 years, even if later than expected, the nuclear hot fusion was going to be the main energy source for ever. My teacher of Physics, Prof Vezzoli, who, beside a Prof of Physics in a high school of Milan was also a senior researcher of the Montedison R&D laboratory, confirmed.
    In the seventies
    in a physics manual I had to study for an exam during my doctorate, there was written that within the nineties hot fusion would be a sure thing.
    In the eighties
    I read in a book of physics that surely by the year 2000 ( a magic number ) the plant named ITER would have the first operative hot fusion plant of the world.
    In the nineties
    Dr Fleishmann and Dr Pons have been character assassinated because after several months their theory had not been replicated.
    In 2001
    I read on the scientific page of the Italian newspaper Sole 24 Ore that the ITER was ready to be started up within twenty years
    After 2001
    until today the ITER ( now dubbed EATER from some ) reached 50 billion dollars of actualized combined financing from the taxpayers.

    As a matter of fact, all these steps had a common denominator: a Niagara falls of money time by time fallen on the pockets of a world that has not to account for the results of their expenses, with the excuse that their task is so important that any delay is ( and will remain for ever ) as unavoidable as death.
    In 2018 some guy, that I deem very talented in improvising funny questions, keeps asking me why, after 8 years of work totally self-financed, the Ecat is not yet for sale in the internet and in the shelves and, to add fun to fun, warns me that this delay is feeding scepticism.
    The real source of envy I feel for the hot-fusionists is that they delay always, 70 years since, the target to become operative with the plant beyond the expected term of their jobs, so whatever will happen, they will never have to respond of what they do with the money of others, while I have to respond of what I do, putting my life AND my money on the stakes, with the responsibility to do it before I die.
    They say that the LENR are impossible because of the Coulombian forces, but it is nuclear Physics archeology, based on theoretical concepts of the fifties, before consolidated and replicated phenomenons of tunnel effect and before big cracks have been put in evidence about incongruences. In nuclear Physics the last revolution has been made by Enrico Fermi, in the thirties…after that has been just made particles accounting cracking down already known nuts to see what is inside, but if you look only in the nut, always the same nut, you do not see what is outside the nut, albeit you sure become a nuttologist of that specific nut. Until somebody says: ” Hey, guy, look outside the nut…there is a lot of dark things, why don’t we turn on the light, so they will be no more dark?”
    Dark matter is a mental masturbation that means ‘ matter we understood nothing of because our models are limited’. I am studying my effect and I am all the more convinced that the temperature we are reaching raises waves we have not a model of and the energy we are producing comes from annihilaton of virtual waves, this explaining why we do not generate ionizing radiations that have the energy to exit the reactor during their life ( probably 10^-23 s )after which they are thermalized.
    But, they say, this is “IMPOSSIBLE” , like the title of the book ” An Impossible Invention ” of my friend Mats Lewan, a scientific journalist and a chemical Engineer from one of the most important universities of Sweden; what is, then possible in the hot fusion system? What is that these Gurus of the real and sole shared science and technology deem POSSIBLE? Here are some cherrypicked highlights:
    1: ” we will reach 150 million Celsius degrees, but the container ( with involuntary irony dubbed ‘ the donut ‘ ) will not boil out in fractions of seconds because of few inches of a magnetic field that will be induced by current between the 150 million degrees plasma and the ceramic insulation of the torus ( the donut ). When Prof Sergio Focardi and I finished to read this , after our laughs faded, we calculated that the probability to maintain stable such a magnetic field to protect permanently- as my friend Orsobubu, who is invited, would say- and uniformly is around 10^-23. When a shared-certification-qualified scientist tells you that this magnetic field is doable, he says a thing that he surely knows is impossible ( that for true ).
    2- “The hot fusion is the most environmentally friendly energy source, because it does not use radioactive materials”. As a matter of fact, this is not just a stupidity: it is a blatant deception, taking advantage of the fact that the non students of the matter cannot know what follows: it is true that the hot fusion is made with non radioactive materials, but it is also true that it PRODUCES very radioactive materials, like tritium, a hydrogen isotope that does not exist in nature, but is produced in the nuclear fission power plants, together with plutonium. Tritium is one of the most dangerous isotopes existing, more dangerous than Uranium 235 ( the bomb grade uranium ), due to its relatively short emilife, which implies strong radiations. It plays a key role in fusion bombs.
    3- ” A hot fusion power plant is not dangerous because it does not work with radioactive materials”: just read again the point 2.
    Why do intelligent and educated scientists and politics say these false things? Come on…THE DONUT OF THE EATER ( PARDON, ITER )!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Recently I read that the hot fusion scientists foresee that their plant will start production within 30 years. Your opinion?
    Ciao e in bocca al lupo!
    Paolo

  • Prof

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    There is a buzz in the internet that your Ecat SK could have issues related to the radiations it could emit.
    Are you worried of this issue? Could your presentaton of the industrialized Ecat SK be jeopardized by it?
    Cheers
    Prof

  • Iggy Dalrymple

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Since you provide all the capital and the customer only pays for the heat, how soon do you expect it will
    take for you (the supplier) to recoup your costs on an SK, assuming maximum continuous heat production?
    1- 3 months
    2- 6 months
    3- 1 year

    Regards,

    Peter:
    No, it will not be possible. At the entrance of the site the security will check that every attendant has the pass. The pass will have to be shown together with a photo ID, for the US citizens, or a passport for non US citizens. Every pass reports the name of the person invited and cannot be transfered to other persons.

  • Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Am I correct in understanding that you intend to supply the equipment to your customers and charge them for the power produced. Also you will have trained installation/service technicians to oversee operations. The E-Cats will require replenishments of hydrogen, will this be supplied by existing gas suppliers in the industry or will it be manufactured on site by electrolysis at a sustainable rate.
    Regards Eric Ashworth.

  • Raffaele Bongo

    Hello Andréa Rossi

    The SK R & D gives excellent results which means that soon you will have many possibilities in the development of boilers with very different applications in the industry. You will surely be interested in the companies producing electricity that will turn the steam into electrical energy.
    Do you already have electric customers in your pre-order book?
    What maximum power do you expect to achieve with a SK boiler?
    Have you planned an IPO in 2019?

    All my support for your work and all my wishes of success for the industrial boiler SK.
    Best regards

    W.:
    No, sunglasses do not protect even a bit.
    The light irradiated is very strong. We will supply to the attendants masks with protection 14. To look at the light of the Ecat SK without this protection is very dangerous for the eyes, even for several seconds.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • W.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    I have received your invitation to attend the presentation of the industrialized Ecat SX and again I want to thank you.
    Just a suggestion: I suppose that to look at the SK could damage the eyes: will be enough to wear sunglasses?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Maybe they will be presented together, but they are two different things for two different kind of employment: the SK cannot be employed for ratings below 100 kW.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    With the success of the recent SK test, and the many advantages it has over the QX, are you still planning to have the QX as the first industrial E-Cat product?

    David:
    F= qE+qv*B
    where:
    F= Lorenz force
    q=charge of the particle
    v=velocity of the particle
    E=electric field value
    B=magnetic field value
    Surely the Lorenz force is among the forces that operate in the Ecat.
