    Neri Accornero:
    Going in a boat we fall from the pan into the grill ( speaking of certifications ). Everything you put on the “live” parts of a boat must obtain the specific certification of naval certification entities, like, for example in Italy where you are, the RINA. Such certifications are more difficult to obtain than the ones for the households.
    The concept is that certifications for places where certified operators control the devices are relatively easier than certifications for apparatuses that must be layman-proof, wherever the layman is : a house, a boat, a workshop, etc., as it might be. The problem does not rise from the location, rises from the operating system.
    Thank you for your suggestion anyway.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Gerard McEk:
    1- right on schedule
    2- we are making very good progress; in the second half of November we have to make important experiments studied to verify the theory exposed in the video of the lecture of Carl Oscar Gullstrom at the demonstration of the Ecat QX in Stockholm on November 24th
    3- we made a model of the combustion room. First step
    4- work in progress
    Thanks to you for your kind attention,
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Andrea
    As everyone I am eagerly waiting for the industrial presentation that you will do in January but in the meantime I ask you a question. Currently we know that you can sell the heat produced by your generators only for industrial systems but if a single person or a small industry would ask you to sell the heat of 20 or 50 kW systems to use them on small boats to produce electricity and propulsion, perhaps using commercial stirling engines, could you sell it? I do not think they would fall into the “home” category. In your blog, in the last 2-3 years, very few times someone talked about naval applications and I’m very surprised because I think a small or big shipowner should have shown his interest, no pollution, no refueling, no large tanks for this, a lot of space on board for the installation of many kilowatt or megawatt, what do they want more?
    Full speed ahead Andrea !!

    Dear Andrea,
    I hope you are still in good health?

    If you can find some time, can you please update us about the progress you are making on:
    1. Industrialization of the SK
    2. Theory
    3. Integration of the Ecat SK in a jet engine
    4. The 100 kW Ecat
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

    Ugo:
    here you go:
    kW: unit of power. It is not energy, it is a rating of power. Example: an engine rated 100 kW has a power of 100 kW also when it is turned off. A power of, for example, 100 kW means that the engine can erogate an energy max of 100 kWh/h
    kWh: it is a unit of energy. A kWh is a quantum of energy corresponding to the energy that a horse can generate in one hour of work
    kW/h: it is a nonsense and obviously does not exist: since the kW is a rating of power, the power is given for all the time during which an engine is in good standing, it is not given by the hour.
    kWh/h: it is a unit of consume of energy and indicates how many kWh are consumed in one hour. Anectode: some time ago an “expert” of the Rock and Troll band corrected a comment of me, defining me ” a poor kid ” (sic), saying I did not know that “kWh/h” is wrong because the two “h” respectively at the numerator and the denominator cancel each other and remains only “kW”. If some imbecile says this to you too, help him to observe that the 2 “h” have different meanings ( at the numerator the h is just a letter of the contraction of the whole word “kilowatthour”, while at the denominator the h stays for “hour”, therefore they cannot cancel each other not representing the same thing.
    Last note: remember that k is always small letter ( from the ancient Greek “kilo” = 1000 ), while W is always capital letter, because is the initial of Watt, the name of the inventor.
    Good luck for your scholastic career !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Scientist:
    Yes, this has been a big problem. What you will see in the presentation will appear to be a simple onject, but the problems we had to resolve are enormous and we had to invent series of solutions, many of which really headbreaking.
    Warm Regards,

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    In the Ecat SK you have the problem of the temperature gradients from room T to more than 20,000 °C: how can materials resist ?

  • Ugo

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I am a student of high school.
    I had a discussion about the meaning of kW and kWh, kw/h and kWh/h: can you clear up these measurement units what are referred to, once and forever? I got different answers and I am confused.
    Thanks
    Ugo

    Did understand well that we will see a video of an Ecat SK module in operation during the internet stream of the presentation of the industrial service initiation on January 31st 2019?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    Of course!

    Hello A. Rossi

    Any French citizen can sensitize our leaders on a subject that is close to his heart by email. Now your project will take another important step on January 31st.
    I think our Minister of Ecological Transition might be interested in your wonderful work.

    Do you allow me to point out to this minister that you will be demonstrating your LENR plant on January 31 and that he will be able to ask you questions?

    Better health and all the better for your team
    Best regards
    Raffaele

    Dear Andrea,
    About your answer to Brokeeper: it makes perfectly sense. In direct streaming we will see the same videos we could see attending a conference in a room and put the same questions we would put in a conference room.
    All the best,
    JPR

  • Kurt

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Your decision to make only the internet streaming makes sense: you have a billion potential clients, to add or not to add several tens of persons in a conference room is irrelevant.
    Godspeed,
    Kurt

  • Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Personal attendance will be useless, because we will show in internet videos of the Ecat SK in operation and we will answer publicly all the questions we will receive from the attendants in internet. Since we found serious problems to get authorization to put in operation the Ecat SK in a conference room, we have to show it by a video, which makes useless to organize a convention in a conference room. We decided to go only on internet for this reason. There is nothing that we could do in a conference room that we cannot do in internet by direct streaming and everything will be easier and faster.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Perhaps I should have qualified my question. Those mentioned previously, are any invited to attend personally at the presentation site or are you saying it is not necessary for anyone, including those mentioned, to attend onsite since observation and Q&A are the same for all? In other words, are the invites to the presentation cancelled since it is made ‘only’ in internet by live stream? Thank you.
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  • Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Everybody that is interested to our presentation will be free to attend, because the presentation will be made only in internet by live stream.
    Thank you for your kind wishes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Is graphene used in the Ecat?

  • Wilfried Babelotzky, Andrea Rossi:
    The NERVA-2 fission rocket engine (http://www.astronautix.com/n/nerva2engine.html) had 7 GW thermal power and weighed 11 tonnes, thus giving a 600 kW/kg power density. It was not flown, but was successfully tested on ground. Its planned burning time was 20 minutes, thus the energy density was 0.7 GJ/kg. If the E-cat could reach a power density of one megawatt per kilogram or a little less, then it might be eventually possible to use it for launch vehicle applications.

    Dear Andrea,

    That is great news about the January 31, 2019 industrial kickoff presentation.
    Besides corporation representatives, will you plan to have any of the following attend:
    1. Major media network representatives?
    2. Military representatives/officials?
    3. US Governmental officials?
    4. Non-US Government officials?
    Best wishes on your preparations and future success!

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    as you confirmed that LENR could drive a blast steel furnace, could also a LENR rocket motor be built? Hydrogen burns at a max temperature of 3 000 Celsius degrees, the Ecat SK reaches much higher temperatures.
    Kind regards,
    Wilfried Babelotzky

    Frank Acland:
    Thank you for asking.
    It will be a live event and the public will be able to put questions.

    Dear Andrea,

    You have posted today that you will make a presentation on January 31, 2019 via internet streaming. Will this be a live event, or will it be a recording?

    What can we expect to see in this event?

    Kind regards,

    José Cruz:
    To limit the temperature, because the control system at that time has overheating problems. Now those problems have been resolved anf the QX can work above 1 kW of power.

  • José Cruz

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Again about the demonstration of Stockholm with the Ecat QX: I noticed that the plasma was not continue, there were several seconds on, several seconds off. Why?
    Cheers

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    In the video on Youtube “Ecat QX presentation in Stockholm November 24 2017” you measured the electricity consumed correctly along the cable that connects the control panel to the Ecat. Is the COP >1 even if the electricity consumed is measured between the outlet of the grid and the control system?

  • Svein Henrik

    Dear Andrea
    As your plan is selling heat, the possibility of storing thermal energy is of important.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    What would really be useful is a “eCat-powered battery” that only needed to be cooled and provided a large amount of power continuously over a 6 month period. Then the user ships it back for refueling, after you have shipped out a replacement. Say, in the 10 – 100 kW power range? When can I order one? LOL.

  • Rey Bresett

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Do you think you will work out the theory also with Prof Vassallo?

  • Andrea Rossi

    another industry that could be very interested is the 3d metal printing industry
    https://www.technologyreview.com/s/604088/the-3-d-printer-that-could-finally-change-manufacturing/
    maybe contact the leaders of that industry…

    Do you think the SK coul be useful in the candy production process?

  • Alfonso

    Dear Andrea:
    With the COP of the SK do you think desalination is competitive?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Chuck Davis,

    Imagine how smooth and quiet the Velocity would be with an eCat-powered electric motor. Velocity is an excellent choice with itsrear propeller. It would be a dream to fly.
