    Dr Rossi,
    During the experiments aimed to track a theory did you find traces of electricity generated directly from the plasma field?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have posted that the Controller can handle up to 50 eCat reactors. When doing a 50 reactor, single Controller configuration, is the input AC power changed from 120VAC, 60 Hz, 20 Amp, single phase service to some other power configuration (e.g., 240VAC, 30Amp)?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Mihail:
    We will give also the data related to the consume of the control panel that, by the way, is completely recovered.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Mihail

    Dr Rossi:
    During the presentation of January 31st the COP will be calculated also considering the electricity consumed by the control panel, or only the electricity consumed by the Ecat SK?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Mihail

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Looking at the energy density of the eCat reactor (20,000W, 1 year operating time, reactor mass of 1kW) gives an energy density of 1.75E+8 W-Hr/kg. Comparing this to the energy density of U-235 of 2.4E+10 W-Hr/kg or Pu-238’s energy density of 0.97E+10 W-Hr/kg, would suggest that of the 1 kilogram mass of the eCat reactor, roughly 10 to 100 grams of fuel is within the reactor. Comments?

  • Debra

    Dear Andrea Rossi
    Will the SK we will see on January 31st substantially different from the QX we saw in Stockholm on Nov 24 2017, as well as its control panel?
    By the way, I found on http://www.ingandrearossi.com an impressive example of resilience.
    Godspeed,
    Debra

    Mike Casbon:
    Good point.
    This will be a problem, for the time being
    Warm Regards,

  • Mike Casbon

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Since the Ecats will be controlled by internet, can they be operated where internet is not available?
    God’s blesses on you and your team!

    Dear Andrea,

    1) How long do you estimate – not asking for an exact answer – it will be until one of your clients is willing to go on the record with a statement that they are purchasing energy from you produced by SK units at an economically attractive price per unit of thermal energy?

    2) Oxygen is a long time killer of LENR reactions in a wide variety of systems. This is especially true in at least some powder based systems. Does this theme of oxygen being a reaction inhibitor apply to the QX/SK reaction?

    3) Have you weighed the electrodes before and after an extended run and if so what was the weight difference before and after?

    4) In the Stockholm presentation it seems like a high voltage impulse was applied to start the reaction going and then DC pulses of much lower voltage and current were applied to keep the reactions going for a few seconds until the off period. If more active cooling had been applied to the reactor and/or power supply, could the lower voltage and current been continuously applied without an off period?

    5) Have attempted to make any contacts in the indoor agriculture industry to find out if they would be interested in an economically advantageous source of ecologically friendly heat?

    6) Have you ever pushed a QX to self destruction and if so what happened?

    7) To push a 20 kilowatt rated SK to self destruction, how high must the output go?

    8) Have you attempted to utilize a laser inferometer setup to determine if any modification of the active vacuum of space near the QX/SK is taking place? If so, what were the results?

  • Harvey

    Dear Andrea,
    In your recent reply to Steven, you said that the Ecat was producing heat for your client and it was not a test. If we can conclude from your answer that Leonardo Corporation is now earning revenue for providing LENR energy to a commercial client, this would certainly constitute a major milestone in the history of LENR and your personal long struggle. To my knowledge, no other organization can make such a claim. I certainly apologise if my conclusion is incorrect. Otherwise,a hearty CONGRATULATIONS! to you and your team.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    With the E-Cat SK, do you need one controller per SK reactor, or if not, how may SKs can be operated by a single reactor?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    Klas:
    I answered. Grey energy will be reduced in proportion to the COP. Please see on Wikipedia what is the grey energy.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Lotr Mileykowsky:
    The control panel does not affect the cost so much as you say.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Stephen:
    1- it was a module making heat for the Client
    2- it is not a test
    3- yes
    3 a and b: it is not a test
    4- no
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Maybe.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, you’re right, thanks for your explanations.
    For an electric car the energy supplied to its batteries is not free, but comes from other plants that have polluted.
    For Ecat, the energy it supplies comes from within and has not generated pollution.
    Therefore, its gray energy for making it and putting in service has an ever lower percentage value for a high COP and a long operational life.

    Another question, please: what do you think about the heat that humans throw in the environment?
    From the Sankey diagram that you see at this link

    https://www.visualcapitalist.com/u-s-energy-consumption-one-giant-diagram/

    one can notice that a total of 60% of all energy produced in the United States is wasted.
    It’s a huge amount of energy thrown into the environment.

    Do you think that in the very long term the Ecat could help to reduce this percentage?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  • Stephen

    Hi Andrea Rossi

    May I ask some questions about your recent testing

    1. Am I correct in understanding that you were recently testing ecat at your customer’s sites? (I remember you mentioning you were happy the way things are goi g it was cozy in side whilst out side it was cold). Or was that a kind of Factory acceptance test before delivery?

    2. is this test still continuing in the long term?
    3. Were you able to test the remote control aspects of the set up?
    3a. If so were you happy with this aspect?
    3b. Is that part of the test more or less continuous or intermittent testing now and then?
    3c Is that part of the test continuing?
    4. Was the test performed with one of the automanously produced e-cat SK’s.?

    Thanks and Best Regards
    Stephen

  • Lotr Mileikowsky

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    here our whole community are fans of e-cat since 2011.
    We have no doubts that your last version of reactors are magnificence, as You stated.
    We have concern about control units. Although it is known that with mass scale of production costs may be lower, is it true, that manufacturing costs of your control units are prohibitively high?
    So much high, that it is unaffordable for households, thus irrelevant whether it is or is not certified for common folks use?

  • Klas

    Dear Andrea,

    Clearly we have a misunderstanding of my question.
    I am well aware of that Ecat does not directly emits any greenhouse gases as this is one of the beatiful facts of LENR energy.
    However my question concerned the total footprint as it is used in Global Warming debate.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_footprint
    The indirect part from Ecat SK should therefore mainly arrive from the reactor manufacturing process, total process producing fuel and total logistics involved during one year.
    I am still expecting a very low value og CO2 kg/Kwh and this is again the beaty as e.g electric cars due to the batteries and how the are charged have much larger footprints than most people are aware of.

    Best regards
    Klas

    Dan C.:
    He is a top manager of a potential Client of us. We are in contact.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    When an electric car does not emit CO2 it is because a thermoelectric plant has emitted the CO2 on its behalf, because to produce the electricity consumed by an electric car you have to produce that electricity.
    About the grey energy. which is what you are talking of, the COP is the issue that makes the difference, because if the COP is higher, the grey energy is more diluted in proportion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Bob Belovich:
    1- There is no relation as far as I saw in the experiments.
    2- n.a.
    3- n.a.

  • Bob Belovich

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    1. In your experiments with operating the e-cat at different temperatures, were you able to obtain information about the relationship between temperature attained and “fuel” consumed?

    2. If yes, were the results a surprise or what you expected.

    3. Will such information be found in your next paper?

    Thanks

    Bob Belovich

  • Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    During operation in its life, a gasoline car emits CO2, but a pure electric car doesn’t. Even the Ecat doesn’t emit CO2 when is working.

    However all these devices are responsible for pollution when they have been manufactured by machine emitting CO2.

    And so at the end of their working life there will be other pollution for recycling.

    So, for every device it is possible compute the level of pollution in their separate phases of life birth – life – dead.

    Are these values for Ecat known?

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

    Klas:
    The Ecat does not emit carbon hydroxide.
    About the grey energy, it is arithmetically inversally proportional to the COP respect a normal source.

  • Klas

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you already present a rough value for the EPA Carbon Footprint (CO2 weight/kWh) from a Ecat SK 20kW generator running continously during the first year?
    I assume included the manufacturing of generator and original fuel incl. first fuel change.
    How much less for year 2 and following?

    Best Regards
    Klas

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Again on Power Engineering December 6 2018: Power-Gen speakers- Energy world has changed, so chenge with it.
    Seems your Ecat fits perfectly!
    Cheers

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    It is a true achievement that you can now produce the ECats automatically!
    Congratulations to you and your team.
    If I understand it rightly you have now (unofficially) entered the commercial stage. That is even a more important step!
    1. Are you happy with your portfolio, or do you want us to promote the Ecat?
    2. Will the standard Ecat SK now be 27 kW nominal or is that just a test and do you still calculate 20 kW as nominal output?
    Thanks and kind regards, Gerard

    Dear Andrea:

    The day of your market introduction is drawing close. It is fitting that it is part of the holiday season and a harbinger of a new year’s future harvest.

    For years, I have watched and read at E-CatWorld how the promise inherent in the Ecat has become a bit mysterious, taking on the hopes as pieces of clothing of the many who follow and share their views of the real life drama of you and your team’s efforts. I think you and your team should be reminded of this.

    I believe a speech by Charlie Chaplin from 1940 expresses this mysterious inspiration some feel regarding the Ecat. Though his deeply emotional speech was focused upon the very different topic of global politics in 1940, it is easy to say that at E-CatWorld many feel a similarity, a likeness between the two. They express the belief that the Ecat will bring a great benefit equivalent to Charlie Chaplin’s deeply felt thoughts. You may feel and see it as being an overblown comparison, but people will believe what they will.

    Happy Holidays to you, your team, and your wife.

    Sincerely & respectfully,

    Mason Ainsworth

    Sorry not to have understood immediately your question,
    Warm Regards,

  • Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    I may have phrased the inquiry poorly. To insure his satisfaction, will a client be able to buy heat from you like your current client is doing, in phases? (ie start with 1 MW, increase to 10 MW?)

    I understand very well that you are not selling product, and while that breaks my heart, I recognize the high quality of your decision to market this way. Please accept my apology if I offended you.

    Sincerely,

    Tom

    Dear Andrea,

    Congratulation again on the progress you have made on the innovative design of the Ecats this last several years and the upcoming presentation of the 27 kW model, and the plants that can be constructed from this revision. Beware if your current client client asks you to get a motel room and wait there for a decision, though. (… Tesla …)

    Q1: If a client wants to heat/cool larger spaces (sections of his factory), would a 1 MW plant including heat exchanger be available to order this January?

    Q2: … 5 MW this January?

    Warm regards,

    Tom
